Who: Tenten and Neji [although if others want to show up, feel free!]
What: The two head off to see a movie after finishing exams.
Where: Konoha Movie Theater
When: Evening, July 5th
Rating: PG

Tenten waited patiently outside of her dorm for Neji to show up, the fingers of her right hand nervously tugging at a brunettte curl hanging around her shoulders. Gone were her typical buns...at least for one night. It felt odd.

Shifting her body forward, she gazed off across campus, hoping to catch a glimpse of Neji even though it was still a few minutes early. She hoped the movie would help clear up the awkwardness that had occurred earlier that day after she had fallen asleep on his bed.

Glancing down at her watch, she sighed, her fingers returning to her hair.

Not entirely sure whether this was a date or not, Neji wandered over to Tenten's dorm; his hair tied back in a subtle pony tail as it usually was. "Hey," he said simply, hands in his pockets. He made a mental note observing her hair wasn't in it's usual twin buns, convinced more than before that it was a date.

He looked at Tenten nervously for a moment; however, he masked the nervousness well. "Shall we go?" he asked, motioning to the door then opening it open for her to leave.
6th-Jul-2009 01:59 pm (UTC)
Tenten smiled brightly when Neji appeared, relief filling her. She wasn't exactly sure why she had been so nervous about him not showing up. Neji was one of her best friends, nothing more.

She nodded at him, slightly surprised when he opened the door for her. Stepping out, she turned to smile up at him. "The foreign film okay with you or is there another movie you'd like to see?" she asked.
6th-Jul-2009 02:03 pm (UTC)
'She seems happy to see me,' Neji thought to himself as he followed Tenten through the door. He was more convinced. Maybe he should have brought her flowers or something?

"No, the foreign film is fine," he replied. It's not like he knew what other movies were on at the time. "Or, if you want to see something else, we can see that."

He began walking in the direction of the cinema, wondering if he should hold her hand. Would she expect that?
6th-Jul-2009 02:09 pm (UTC)
She once again resisted the urge to mention the chick flick. Neji would scoff at that idea. She knew the foreign film would be something Neji liked and the plot had seemed interesting enough. She was just happy to not be studying for once.

"No, the foregin film is fine with me." she replied, glancing over at him.

He seemed a little on edge, though. She had caught him staring at her with an odd expression on his face. Reaching up again, she subconsciously touched her hair. It still felt odd. Maybe she should attempt to put it back up in her buns.
6th-Jul-2009 02:21 pm (UTC)
"Are you sure there's not another movie you want to see?" Neji asked, double checking. He'd rather see the foreign film, but if Tenten wanted to see something else, he wouldn't protest. After all, this was a date, right?

He looked at her out of the corner of his eye, she was touching her hair again. Was she as nervous as he felt? He needed to change the subject...

"I finished one of the books we need to read..."
6th-Jul-2009 02:28 pm (UTC)
Tenten was jolted from her thoughts when Neji spoke. Looking up at him, she let her hand drop. "Oh, no...this movie is fine with me! My history professor suggested it." she replied a little too quickly then took a deep breath.

Calm down, Tenten. This is Neji, your best friend...who just happens to look really cute with his hair like that. NO! Bad Tenten!

She was suddenly happy when he changed the subject, even if it was school related. "Oh?" she asked then smiled at him. "How was it?"
6th-Jul-2009 02:34 pm (UTC)
Neji nodded. The foreign film it was. He stopped to look at Tenten wondering why she spoke so quickly. "Are you okay?" he asked quietly, noting the deep breath.

"It was okay," he replied, thinking that was a bad subject to choose to change the conversation's direction.

He continued walking and was relieved as he saw the cinema coming up ahead.
6th-Jul-2009 02:42 pm (UTC)
Tenten blinked and turned her head quickly in Neji's direction. "I'm fine...why do you ask?" she responded, examining him. He looked nervous, which was odd for Neji.

Glancing ahead, she noticed the cinema and let out a small sigh of relief. Maybe once inside in the dark theater she'd be able to take her mind off of the guy next to her.
6th-Jul-2009 02:44 pm (UTC)
"You just seem, I don't know... rushed I guess," Neji replied, turning his head in Tenten's direction. "If you don't feel good, we can go back to the dorms."

Arriving at the cinema, he stopped in front of the ticket booth waiting for an answer. He of course, had decided to buy the tickets, even if it meant he had to live on ramen for the week.
6th-Jul-2009 02:52 pm (UTC)
Tenten started shaking her head. "Oh, no...I feel perfectly fine." she replied a little too happily then groaned. It was going to be a long night if she kept acting like a schoolgirl with a crush.

She dug around in her bag when they stopped in front of the ticket booth, looking for her wallet.
6th-Jul-2009 02:58 pm (UTC)
Neji raised his eyebrow, wondering what was up with Tenten today, then without a word, he swooped into his pocket effortlessly and bought two tickets.

"Do you want popcorn or anything?"
6th-Jul-2009 03:07 pm (UTC)
Tenten had finally found her wallet and was in the process of digging out cash for her ticket when Neji purchased two tickets. Arching an eyebrow at him, she glanced at the tickets in his hand. He bought her ticket?

When he asked about popcorn, she held up her wallet. "How about I get the popcorn and drinks since you bought my ticket?" she asked. She started wondering if this was a date.
6th-Jul-2009 03:12 pm (UTC)
"No, I can get them," Neji replied, determined. "What drink do you want?" He eyed the options at the snack bar, deciding what he himself wanted.


6th-Jul-2009 03:16 pm (UTC)
Tenten's eyebrows rose at Neji's response. Slowly, she tucked her wallet back into her bag, curious as to why he wanted to pay for everything. Normally they went halves on everything. Maybe this was a date. She suddenly felt giddy.

"Um...a lemonade would be great." she replied, still eyeing him subtly.
6th-Jul-2009 03:21 pm (UTC)
Buying 1 big popcorn (to share), a lemonade and a cola, Neji paid the snack bar clerk, then handed Tenten her drink. He'd carry the rest. He'd so be eating ramen for a month.

Silently, he walked to the dark room where their movie was being shown, heading towards the back - everyone knew that was the best spot to sit.
6th-Jul-2009 03:28 pm (UTC)
Tenten accepted the drink with a smile, making a mental note to invite him over for dinner a few times so that he'd actually eat over the next month. She knew that he didn't have alot of money and yet was determined to pay her way. It was kind of sweet. Especially seeing how this had turned into a date.

She followed him to the back and took a seat, glancing over at him.
6th-Jul-2009 03:48 pm (UTC)
Neji sat next to Tenten, putting the popcorn between them. Nervously tapping on the arm of the seat, he waiting until the previews started; they hadn't yet.

He leaned back, stopped tapping and looked at her, smiling slightly.
6th-Jul-2009 03:54 pm (UTC)
Tenten watched his fingers tapping the arm for a moment before looking up at him. He seemed so nervous, which was cute. She looked up and found he looking at her.

When he smiled at her, she shot him a shy smile of her own before reaching over and squeezing his hand gently.
6th-Jul-2009 03:59 pm (UTC)
What was going on? This was weird for Neji, he had never thought about Tenten like that, until yesterday... did he just ruin things?

He looked at her hand on top of his, and squeezed back. His original question was answered, they clearly were on a date.
6th-Jul-2009 04:04 pm (UTC)
Tenten sat back as the previews started to roll, her hand falling into her lap. She didn't want him to think she thought this was a date. Especially if it wasn't.

The previews were uninteresting as usual, but that was fine with her. Her eyes kept darting over towards Neji. He looked uncomfortable.
6th-Jul-2009 04:07 pm (UTC)
Neji tried to not look so disappointed when Tenten dropped her hand. Now, he was confused even more!

Grabbing a handful of popcorn, he quickly glanced over to her, then shoved some popcorn in his mouth; returning his gaze to the big screen in front of them.

The movie couldn't start soon enough.
6th-Jul-2009 04:20 pm (UTC)
Twenty minutes into the movie, Tenten was resisting the urge to grab on to Neji. It was true her professor had mentioned the movie in class, telling everyone how wonderful it was. What he had failed to mention was that it was a horror movie.

A really scary horror movie at that. Tenten hated horror movies.

She covered her eyes with her hands, hoping no one around them noticed. Maybe she should've mentioned that chick flick after all...
6th-Jul-2009 04:26 pm (UTC)
The movie wasn't phasing Neji, he had seen all kinds of different movies, and nothing really bothered him like that.

Turning to look at Tenten, he noticed she looked extremely scared. Knowing she hated horror movies, he wondered why she picked it. Did she not know it was a horror movie?

He had to do something, so he swiftly brought his arm and put it around her shoulders. "Do you need to leave?"
6th-Jul-2009 04:32 pm (UTC)
Tenten had her eyes squeezed shut despite her hands being over them. Maybe she'd be able to survive like this. She jumped suddenly at the sound effects and whimpered. Okay, maybe not...

She peeked from between her fingers when she felt an arm go around her shoulders and found Neji staring at her. He probably thought she was an idiot for picking a horror movie and she wasn't about to admit to him that she hadn't known it was one. It was bad enough that he caught her covering her eyes. Also, she didn't want to leave as it would be a waste of his hard earned money.

"I'm...fine...I promise." she replied shakily then shrieked and buried her face into his shoulder. This day was just not turning out well.
6th-Jul-2009 04:37 pm (UTC)
Neji could tell Tenten wasn't enjoying this movie, he frowned at the thought of her being unhappy; that surprised himself.

He chuckled a little, she did look so adorable scared about this movie. He hugged her tightly, holding her close, stroking her back with his hand. "It's okay," he soothed, "We can go if you need to."
6th-Jul-2009 04:46 pm (UTC)
Tenten kept her face buried in his shoulder. Oddly enough, him stroking her back was soothing, making the movie a little more tolerable. Wait a minute, this was Neji she was snuggling up to! Her best friend and teammate from school!

...and yet...it was nice.

"I'm okay, really..." she murmured, keeping her head on his shoulder. As long as he kept his arm around her, she'd be fine.
6th-Jul-2009 04:50 pm (UTC)
Neji continued holding Tenten, confused about his feelings for her. He wasn't even paying attention to the movie anymore.

He patted her on the head, looking at her concerned. She really did hate horror movies!
6th-Jul-2009 05:12 pm (UTC)
Tenten raised her head from Neji's shoulder and looked up at him. He didn't look too uncomfortable holding her. He did, however, look concerned about her.

She smiled up at him before she could stop herself, the movie in the background forgotten.
6th-Jul-2009 05:17 pm (UTC)
Neji smiled back slightly - he wasn't one to smile a lot, so he knew Tenten would know what it meant.

....was this a moment?

Leaning in, he kissed her gently on the lips, feeling butterflies in the pit of his stomach. Besides the other night when he kissed her, he hadn't kissed someone in so long.
6th-Jul-2009 05:30 pm (UTC)
To say she was surprised when Neji kissed her again was an understatement. She suddenly wanted to jump up and down and scream but knew that was quite inappropriate for a movie theater. For years she had had a crush on the boy genius but didn't think he felt the same way, seeing her only as a friend and classmate.

...but now he was kissing her.

She returned the kiss softly, leaning into him.
6th-Jul-2009 05:40 pm (UTC)
A rush of feelings ran through Neji, he had never thought about Tenten like this before. He had no idea how she even felt.

He continued kissing her, pulling her in closer with strong arms.
6th-Jul-2009 05:52 pm (UTC)
Reaching up, she slid a hand over his soft hair. She had always loved his hair. Despite all of the girls in their class, he had always manage to have the prettiest hair out of everyone. However, she had always been afraid to touch it for fear of annoying him no matter the temptation.

She suddenly didn't want the movie to end.
6th-Jul-2009 06:06 pm (UTC)
Neji embraced Tenten's face, lifting her chin up slightly to kiss her deeper; knocking over the popcorn in the process.
6th-Jul-2009 06:17 pm (UTC)
Tenten felt the popcorn fall into her lap but didn't bother to dust it off. It was only when the lights came on that she blinked and pulled away from Neji, cheeks flushed. The movie was over.

...he had managed to make her forget the movie.

Biting her lip, she sent him a shy look. "Neji-kun...?"
6th-Jul-2009 06:21 pm (UTC)
Neji looked at Tenten when she pulled away. The movie was over? The lights were back on, and the movie was over.

"Yes?" he asked, did she regret it?
6th-Jul-2009 06:25 pm (UTC)
"You kissed me..." she remarked softly then wanted to kick herself. Of course he knew that! He was present at said kissing! Nice way to state the obvious, Ten... she mentally scolded herself. Turning red, she shook her head then looked back up at him. "I mean...it was nice..." she replied, embarassed.
6th-Jul-2009 06:31 pm (UTC)
Neji smiled a little bit. He always thought it was adorable when she stated the obvious. "It was," he replied simply, touching her arm softly.

"Shall we go?"
6th-Jul-2009 06:43 pm (UTC)
She nodded, still blushing deeply. Standing up, she brushed the popcorn from her lap and looked sheepish. "Since we...um...managed to ruin the popcorn, how about some pizza?" she asked then smiled. "My treat."

She held out her hand and waited, holding her breath.
6th-Jul-2009 06:46 pm (UTC)
"Okay," Neji replied with a nod, "Where do you want to go?"

Noting Tenten with her hand held out, he gently collected her hand with his own, holding it firmly - but not too tight.
6th-Jul-2009 06:49 pm (UTC)
Tenten's face brightened up when he took her hand. "Let's go to the pizza place near campus for a veggie pizza." she replied, moving past him but only to stop and lean up, kissing him on the cheek softly. "Thank you for the movie, Neji..." she added softly.
6th-Jul-2009 06:57 pm (UTC)
Neji nodded, he sure was hungry! "Alright," he replied. "You're welcome." If Neji blushed, now would be the moment.

Still grasping her hand, he walked out of the cinema, and started heading towards the pizza place.
