This it, Naruto thought. He was standing in front of the gates. His eyes were shut tight. His breathing was uneasy "Naruto?" his eyes opened to see Ino and Sakura. "It's really you!" they jumped him knocking him to the ground. "Get off you're suffocating me" he said wheezing.

"How dare you leave like that! It's been 2 freaking years do you know how worried we were?!" Ino yelled shaking him. "Hinata was even more worried, she just got better and you went and put her through this!" Sakura yelled hoisting him up.

"I wanna propose..." they stopped. "W-what...?" they asked. He smiled "I want to ask Hinata to marry me" their angry faces turned to happy excited ones. "She's gonna faint! What dress should she wear? Maybe I should do her makeup!" they said ignoring Naruto.

"You can't tell her! I want it to be special" he said. "Of course! We'll help you out. How does *whisper * sound?" Naruto looked at Ino. "You'd do that for me?" Ino smiled "You're my friend, of course I would" Naruto smiled. "Can you get it ready by tonight?" Naruto asked. "You can count on us" Ino said throwing an arm around Sakura.

Naruto left towards the Hyuga estate. And took a deep breath and walked towards a lady who was cleaning. "Excuse me is Hinata here?" he asked. "Sorry honey you just missed her" she said. "Great, is her father here?" he asked nervous. "He is but he is in a meeting" Naruto nodded "What room?" he asked. "That one, but-" Naruto didn't listen to her and ran towards the door making sure to take off his shoes.

"Excuse me" be said then opening the door. "What are you?!" One of the men yelled. "Hiashi Hyuga," he said looking at the man in the front. "Naruto?" Neji asked confused, Naruto ignored him and walked towards the front of the room. "There is something I need from you sir" he said sitting down. "From me? And what exactly would that be?" Hiashi asked.

Naruto wasn't about to turn back now "Your blessing, sir!" Naruto yelled. "My blessing? You come here and interrupt an important meeting to ask for my blessing?! Why should I give it to the likes of you?" he yelled. Naruto looked up at him "Use your Byakugan" Naruto said. "What?" He asked.

"Your eyes can see more than chakra" Naruto explained. Hiashi looked at him and then activated his Byakugan. "What is that...?" Behind Naruto was a big black shadow. "He is me... but when I'm with her... it..." he said looking up. Hiashi saw the shadow slowly turn brighter until it was a warm orange color. He closed his eyes and then looked at him "I hope you understand that if you make her cry anything but tears of joy I will kill you" he said glaring at Naruto.

"I'd never dream of it" Naruto said smiling. "Then you have my blessing" Naruto jumped up. "But that doesn't mean I like you" Naruto stopped cheering and looked at him. "The only person I care about liking me is Hinata" Naruto smiled widely.

Neji was frozen "Come to the forest by the training grounds at 6" Naruto yelled and ran off. "Hinata.... is gonna get married with him? She's gonna faint" Neji said regaining his composure. Although Hiashi wasn't as composed anymore. "My daughter is gonna get married. This is actually happening." he gasped "I get to walk her down the aisle" his eyes sparkled.

Everyone stared at him jaw dropped. His eyes widened and he cleared his throat "I mean... shall we get back to the meeting" he said. Everyone was silent as the meeting resumed.

-

"I can't believe you're really doing this" Kakashi said. "Neither can I" Tsunade said. "Alright quiet everyone she should be coming at any moment. I see her hide. Go get her Naruto" Sasuke said pushing Naruto.

"Naruto-kun?!" Hinata let out as she saw Naruto standing there with his instrument. "When did you-?" Naruto shook his head. "There's something I want to tell you but nothing seems to fit what I want to say. But then I found this song and it shows exactly how I feel" Naruto smiled.

He began to strum looking at her, she was so beautiful it was hard to stop. "I'm gonna love you when our time is right
Be thinking of you every day and every night
To think you're somewhere in this world and someday I will make you my wife" he sang Hinata stood there frozen her eyes watery.

"So every day we're not together i hope you'll know that you'll be alright
Cause I" he walked closer to her. "I'm gonna make you feel like you're the only girl in the world
Like you're the only one that I'll ever love
Like you're the only one that knows my heart
Like you're the only one that's in command
Cause you're the only one who understands how to make me feel like a man" her face softened and a small smile started to form.

"And when you're lonely I'll keep you company
Like this world was only made for you and me
And when it doesn't feel right with another I hope you'll believe
That in a world with no light I will be all that you need to see" he stopped strumming and tucked Hinata's hair behind her ear making her blush.

Sasuke and the rest were trying not to squeal behind the tree and bushes.

"I'm gonna make you feel like you're the only girl in the world
Like you're the only one that I'll ever love
Like you're the only one that knows my heart
Like you're the only one that's in command
Cause you're the only one who understands how to make me feel like a man" he circled her dancing a bit.

"I'm gonna make you feel like you're the only girl in the world
Like you're the only one that I'll ever love
Like you're the only one who knows my heart
Like you're the only one that's in command
Cause you're the only one who understands how to make me feel like a man" a smile wouldn't leave Naruto or Hinata. It felt as if love smack camed them in the face.

He set down the instrument and took the ring out of his pocket and kneeled making Hinata step back. "Hinata Hyuga you have made me so happy that I think I can do back flip over the moon. I don't have much to offer and I know you'd probably not even consider it but will you marry me?" Hinata's hair covered her eyes her fist trembling.

Tears streamed down her cheeks "You idiot..." Naruto looked at her. "How could I not consider it? I've been thinking about it since we were kids you dummy" Hinata pulled him up and hugged him. "So that's a yes?" Naruto asked blankly. "You really are stupid" she giggled pulling his face closer to hers and then closing the gap.

Naruto gave a sign with his finger letting Ino know to release the rope. Flower petals fell from a ball that was tied up on top of them. Hinata smiled as she saw the shower of flowers, they were lilies. "You cheese ball" he smiled grabbing her hand and putting the ring on. He couldn't hold it any longed he grabbed her and spun her "We're getting married!!!" he yelled happily.

The rest came out from hiding to congratulate them. "We'll have the wedding at once!" Naruto yelled, Hinata stopped smiling and started to panic. "Wait I haven't picked out the dress or the cake! What about the guest?" Sakura placed a hand on her shoulder. "That's what we're here for" Hinata looked at her, Ino and Tenten and smiled. They started talking away on plans and decorations.

Naruto looked at her with soft eyes. Sasuke smiled "I got you covered, I recorded the whole thing" he said patting a camera that was hidden behind a bush. "Sasuke? Will you be my best man" Sasuke stopped and looked between Hinata and Naruto. "Should I bring tissues?" they laughed.

 Now this was the day worth while. It was worth waiting for, her and everything else.
