A Sister Hug

Something had brought tears to those large blue orbs. She’s crying. He helped the girl rise, and when they were both standing, Naruto realized the height difference he reached up to her shoulders. Her hands lingered for a moment longer on his shoulders then the woman let go of his shoulders. Naruto’s throat was really dry, he cleared it and in a surprisingly soft voice, he managed to ask “Who are you?” She’s beautiful he thought and watched her blink, the tears swimming around in the corner of her eyes. She suddenly snapped out of her intense glare.

“I’m um I’m Aiko I’m-I’m new to the village” Her voice was low and hoarse, just as if her throat was closed up either that or she was trying to hold back tears, but why on earth would she do that? “Naruto Uzumaki Hokage-sama assigned me to this apartment as your roommate” Aiko spoke to the boy nervously as she whipped her tears away. Once again the two found themselves looked in each other’s deep blue gazes. Perhaps it was a strange familiarly, maybe it was her sweet, gentle smile or it could even been the ridiculous situation of her dress and the bathroom light flooding both of them. Maybe it was the strange relaxing silence between them. But Naruto felt curious lightness of heat towards this stranger, a large happy grin split on his face.

“Well one-chan I am not really used to getting attacked while climbing through that window. Often I use the door but I forgot to take my keys with me, so I had to do that but no one is ever there to care” Naruto spoke nervously while raising his hand to rub the back of his head, he grinned cheekily at her. Aiko smile had frozen in place after the very long speech, the title he’d addressed her with oneee-chan sister.

Swallowing down another surge of pain, she responded quickly with her own smile “W-well, we can’t have that anymore can we? I am not accustomed with the roommates. And I have got to admit I didn’t expect you to come through the window on our first meeting”. Naruto kept looking at the strange girl “ Oh I am so sorry, I didn’t even apologise, I must of hurt you when I mean I expected you to come through the door, so when I felt someone entering at the window I thought you were”. Naruto just stood there in complete and utter shock, unable to do anything but gaze at the strange women whose eyes showed concern and guilt.

No one No one’s ever

Aiko’s hand trailed on Naruto’s face and touched the whiskers on Naruto’s face. The kuubi the cause of all this, the cause of our broken family. The reason why I couldn’t protect you Naruto. Suddenly her hand stopped and fell to her sides “Eh, don’t worry nee-chan, you actually didn’t hurt me! You were just so fast, and I am really tired from training She couldn’t stand it any longer.

Naruto didn’t even have time to gasp; he didn’t even have time to register anything. But the next thing he was aware of was long strands of golden falling over his face, mingling with his own hair. And a warmth, a gentle, absolutely beautiful warmth as he felt himself wrapped up in her embrace.

Let your arms enfold us

Through the dark of night

Will your angels hold us

Till we see the light

Hush, lay down your troubled mind

The day has vanished and left us behind

And the wind, whispering soft lullabies

Will soothe, so close your weary eyes

Let your arms enfold us

Through the dark of night

Will your angels hold us

Till we see the light

Sleep, angels will watch over you

And soon beautiful dreams will come true

Can you feel spirits embracing your soul?

So dreams while secrets of darkness unfold

Let your arms enfold us

Through the dark of night

Will your angels hold us

Till we see the light

 

He could only stand in stunned amazement, but even that couldn’t stop the strange mixture of delight and raw, ragged pain spreading throughout his body. Within her arms he felt safe like nothing could come between him and this moment. His head barely reached her shoulders, his eyes only just able to peer over them. Slowly ever so slowly and almost without thinking, he shifted his head to one side, resting it more easily against her shoulder, leaning more closer to that beautiful, beautiful warmth. He felt her tighten her arm around his shoulder and waist, tilt her head against his. Everything just faded away in that moment. All he could feel all he was aware of in that moment of time was this.

This what I have always wanted

Something I’ve always wanted to know what it really felt like

Why they all liked being hugged all those at school

What was that about a mother’s hug, a sister’s hug?

A sister’s hug

The End
