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.

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.

'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.

"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.

"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.
