When someone joins the Anbu,they know that they become nameless,faceless. They are given a mask,maybe a partner and missions of great importance,that they must complete,for the safety of the village and its people.
When someone joins the Anbu,they are given a mask,maybe a partner and missions. Anbu are nameless,faceless,no one knows who they are,they only know themselves. Not even partners know each other,it's for safety. They no longer have the names given to them at birth,but 'Dog' 'Bear' 'Hawk' 'Cat' and others like that.
This story is about two of those Anbu. One is named 'Weasel' and the other is named 'Hawk' and they are partners.
Weasel is an Uchiha,Hawk is a Hyuuga,they are both males,both really strong. That's what they know about each other,as far as identities go. Yet these two males,these two nameless men,managed to do something that is rather hard to believe,they fell in love.
Not once has either seen the other's face,not once....
"What are you thinking Weas?"Hawk asked his partner,as the two rested for the night atop some trees
"It's nothing"Weasel lied,turning his face away from the other,his raven hair dancing in the light wind
"Weas,you may have been an Anbu for much longer than me,but don't forget that I know every thing about your voice,even the smallest detail"Hawk told the other male,as he jumped from the tree he was sitting at to the one the raven haired Anbu was
"Hn"Was Weasel's responce
"Come on,tell me,if you don't,I can't help you and I want to be able to help my boyfriend"Hawk said,placing a hand around Weasel's waist,resting his masked face on the other's shoulder.
'Boyfriend....how can I be his boyfriend if he can't know who I really am?'Weasel asked himself,as he begun playing with Hawk's dark brown locks
'What's bothering him so much? He's been like that since I saw him'Hawk asked himself,as he closed his eyes
"I love you,you know that,right?"Weasel asked suddently,taking Hawk by surprise.
"Of course I know,and I love you too"Hawk answered,raising his head from Weasel's shoulder to look at him.
"Weas,what's going on,I'm worried about you,you've been like that all day"Hawk said to the other man. The raven haired Anbu let out a sigh and turned his head to look at his boyfriend
"I know that I haven't seen your face or know your family"Weasel begun"But I do know what food you like and what not,I know your hobbies,your favorite color,your fears and your dreams,the reasons you fight,I know everything about you that has to do with your personality and you know everything about me. No one but you knows that much about me,not my family,not my friends"He explained
"And only you know that much about me as well,no one but you"Hawk agreed"But what are you trying to get at?"He asked
"Hawk,I don't want you and me to love a nameless Anbu,I want the man that I have fallen in love with to know what I look like,I want to kiss him and hug him and hold him close,see the reaction on his face at every single thing that I do to him and see his eyes clearly. I want him to see the same things reflect on my face"Weasel explained. At that,Hawk's head lowered and his eyes fell to look at his legs
'So this is it,huh?'He asked himself,as a tear fell down his face
"I understand.....i-it's okay,I think I knew it'd end up like this....I..."Hawk's voice trailed off,as more tears begun falling. Weasel,realising that the other mistook his words,placed a hand on his shoulder,causing Hawk to raise his head
"I didn't mean that,stupid"The raven said with a smirk,that the other couldn't see. Hearing Weasel's words,Hawk's head shot up to look at the other
"Y-you don't want t-to break up?"He asked
"Of course not,I love you,didn't I tell you that?"Weasel asked back and Hawk nod
"Th-then what did you mean?"Hawk asked
"I ment that it's time we de-mask ourselves to each other"The raven answered
"B-but if we're found out Hokage-sama could-"
"Nothing will happen to us,I promise,besides,I think I've had enough Anbu duty,I think it's time I become a jounnin sensei"The raven spoke. Hawn looked at the other man,deep in thoughts. For so long,he'd never seen the other man's face and vice versa,what if Weasel didn't like how he looked?
"So,my love,what do you say?"Weasel asked. Hawk slowly nod and they both placed their hands on their masks,turning them to the side of their heads,exposing their face to the other. Slowly,faces hidden for so long came into view. Silvery-grey eyes met black for the first time so clearly. They studied each other for a while,before the raven smirked,causing the other to blush
"You're beautiful"He spoke. Did his voice deepen or was it just his ears?
"Y-you're very handsome youself"He spoke back. Why was he acting like his cosin all of a sudden?
"I'm Uchiha Itachi,pleased to finally meet you"Weasel,now known as Itachi said,a small smile playing along his lips
"H-Hyuuga Neji"The other,Neji spoke back,a smile onhis face as well. The two leaned in and slowly,their lips met in a kiss,full of love and passion. Neji placed his hands around Itachi's neck and Itachi placed his arms around the Hyuuga's waist,both pulling closer.
When they pulled away,out of breath,they rested their forheads against each other and love filled black eyes met equally love filled silver ones
"I love you Hyuuga Neji,now and forever"Itachi spoke,as he gained back his breathe
"And I love you too,Uchiha Itachi"Neji said back,glad he's shuttering had left.
That night,the two slept together,arms around each other.
When someone joins the Anbu,they are given a mask,maybe a partner and missions. Anbu are nalemess,faceless,no one knows who they are but themselves. But when partnership turns to love,when feelings grow and great bonds are made,it is then that an Anbu gains both name and face,cause love is above the laws of the Anbu.
