Blushing slightly at the compliment, Sakura scratched her cheek lightly. “Ah.. Thanks, but I don’t really think I am. I still cry all the time,” she admitted as her cheeks burned brighter at the confession. It was one of her pet peeves, and although she had been trying to find a way to stop crying, her tear ducts seemed to have leaks in them because no matter what she tried, she would always end up crying if she was the tiniest bit hurt. She had even tried training herself by forcing herself not to cry while chopping onions. It wasn’t pretty.
Entering into an office, Sakura put the pieces of paper with the ease of something done a million times before into a basket. “Done!” She clapped her hands once, just to show how happy she was. “Food! My God, yes, please!” She was absolutely famished from all the brain power she had used today.
“I-It’s okay if you cry, I-I’m a major cry baby too s-so you’re not alone.” Hinata admitted as she began playing with her fingers in a nervous habit. She usually didn’t admit it to most people, but she didn’t was Sakura to feel embarrassed. It was a horrible habit Hinata had, she had always cried so easily the only reason she was somewhat good at hiding the fact she was crying was because she was scolded rather harshly when she was younger.
Hinata laughed sightly at the girls enthusiasm, “W-Where would you like to go eat?” Hinata asked cheerfully. She usually ate alone because a lot of the time whenever she offered someone to go out to eat they were usually busy, so she was glad she would have someone to eat with.
Crying. It made her think of when she was younger and naive. She had cried all the time in middle school every time she was rejected by the guy she had pined for. It only made their relationship worse because one, he was one of her closest friends (at least she thought so) and two, he hated tears. She secretly thought he hated even dew because of a poem she had once read to him which called dew ‘tears of the morning.’
Cocking her head, she thought for a bit. Food was serious business, and it required preparation and thought before choosing a menu. “Uhm.. I don’t know. Anything, really. I’m so hungry I could eat a horse right now!” As soon as she said that, a mental image of a smelly horse surrounded by dung flies came to mind. “Nevermind. That’s not exactly sanitary..”
Hinata chuckled quietly, “No I don’t think so, b-but we could go out for some barbecue, I-I know a great place not to far from the Academy if you’d like to go?” Hinata asked smiling as she put a hand over her stomach acknowledging that she needed to get some food soon.
