This Year will be Different 6Ino had just woken up. Her head pounded and her stomach throbbed uncontrollably, she could barely sit up. Shikamaru heard the movement and turned his head partly, looking over at the bruised girl.
"How are you feeling?"
"Why do you care? I mean don't you like Temari?"
"Never mind, troublesome woman."
The last thing Ino remembered was Sakura being knocked unconscious then everything went black. She had heard a male's voice but only believed it was her imagination. She looked over Shikamaru and saw a sketch pad in his hand. He was trying to find a mistake in his picture. Ino limped over to him and saw the most amazing picture ever. It was her sleeping but it looked so much more exquisite. It had a bunch of pictures from when she and Shikamaru were little. The pictures were ideas of what he managed to believe Ino was dreaming about. He even drew out a Halloween when they were five and when it the Konoha festival when Ino won a goldfish. Then in the middle, it was a faded picture of them e
This Year will be DifferentIt was the first day of high school. Their final year at that stupid school. Hinata Hyuuga, Ino Yamanka, Tenten and Rei Miharu were not popular; in fact they were disliked by many. Some had no idea they existed. Sakura Haruno was the queen along with her friends Temari, Karin, Ryoko and Kameko. Sakura was with Naruto, Temari with Shikamaru, Karin with Sasuke, Ryoko with Neji and Kameko with Kiba. This year would be different for Hinata and the gang. This year they would do the ultimate and send the populars packing.
Hinata woke bright in the morning, as usual. She jumped into the shower. When she came out, she could only hear the sound of Neji`s snores. She put on her school uniform, which was a checkered black and dark purple skirt and a white t-shirt with a black tie to match.
'This year will be different' she thought to herself as did Ino and Tenten. Rei was still sleeping in her bed at the time.
Hinata left for school meeting up with Ino and Tenten. They all had to wait since Rei h
This Year will be Different 2The girls went to their lockers. Hinata`s was pretty close to Rei`s since it was in alphabetical order by last name. Since Tenten has no last name, they made it by her first name so her locker was close to Ino`s. They all met up after getting their stuff together.
"What's your next class?" Tenten questioned the group. Each pulled out their schedules.
"I-I have Home Ec..." Hinata squeaked.
"I have AP Art" Ino squealed, in joy.
"I have biology" Rei sighed.
"I have Gym" Tenten answered.
"Do we have any classes together?!" Ino yelled.
They made their way to their classes. Ino sat down at the back of her
This Year will be Different 4The girls kept on screaming until Neji banged at Hinata's door and told them to shut up.
"Alright, Ill chose first" Ino looked at each of her friend's faces "Hm .. Tenten, truth or dare?"
Tenten looked horrified. She whimpered and finally mumbled dare. Ino's face lit up, she dreamed of the day Tenten would chose dare with her.
"I dare you to go to Neji's room and scream holy potato sacks, I'm pregnant."
Tenten was not type to lose a chicken (when you lose truth or dare, then however loses all their chickens has to run around the house bucking like one). Tenten left the room. Screams could be heard from Tenten and Neji. Neji yelled at Tenten asking her who the hell did that to her. When Neji stopped screaming, Tenten told him it was a dare. A thud followed quickly after. Tenten re-entered to see her friends rolling on the floor, laughing like no tomorrow. Now it was Tenten's turn.
"Hinata, truth or dare?"
"Do you know if Naruto and Sakura did something serious yet?"
This Year will be Different 5All the girls woke bright and early. Instead of having a regular breakfast, they had ice-cream. They made their way to school after getting all their stuff together. Neji was assigned to drive them to school to ensure punctuality. Word had already gotten out about Ino's 'confession', every student had their eyes on her as she made her way into the educational building.
"WHAT ARE YOU STARING AT?!" Tenten yelled seeing that Ino was too embarrassed to do so herself.
Everyone's eyes reverted back to their own business. Temari just stood with her posiey, glaring at the blonde female. Shikamaru had already made up with Temari and was just looking at Ino flabbergasted. She noticed his expression and raised her head in the way that meant I'm-pissed-at-you-so-don't-talk-to-me. Shikamaru got the message. Ino made her way to her homeroom with her friends. Shikamaru was already in class when she came in. She sat in her regular seat and waited for class to start. Shikamaru shi
This Year will be Different 3School went on. The girls had two classes all together, one alone and at some point they were in pairs. Lunch came and went. Few words were exchanged between them and Sakura. But school finally ended. Ino had to wait for Shikamaru near his car while he got his belongings. When he arrived, glares headed Ino's way. She overheard many of Temari's hurtful words and she would have broken down in tears but felt that she shouldn't give them the satisfaction.
They arrived at Ino's house and headed straight for her room to work on the project but were interrupted by her father.
"Hello Shikamaru. Ino, where are you headed?"
"We are going to my room to work on an art project." She explained quickly.
Her father gave her a slight nod and Ino and Shikamaru proceeded to her room. Ino's room was very neat. Her books in one corner and her bed in the other. A small desk was located beside her bed, with a computer situated on top. They began with Shikamaru posing.
"Alright, let's see. Um, I want you to g
To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--
the pain, strong and steady, in your chest.
You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
