The following day Neji and Shikamaru met up for their camping trip. The two went deep into the woods until they came across a waterfall with a hidden cave behind it. The two pitched their tent close to the water and relaxed. Shikamaru laid on his back and stared up at the sky. His calm and collective expression narrowed into a grimace. “What's wrong?” Neji asked sitting next to him. Shikamaru groaned. “There's overcast. It might rain,” he sat up, “but until then let's make the most of it.” Neji smiled and nodded. The two went swimming and made an attempt to start a fire when it began to rain. Thunder crashed and lightening struck. The two gathered their things and the fire wood and ran into the hidden cave.
The two were able to get a fire started inside the cave and hung their sopping clothes over the fire to dry. They ate and laid out their blankets. Neji felt awkward that him and Shikamaru were only in their shorts, but at least he was e

A couple days had passed and Neji was finally released from the hospital. He was somewhat worried that he wasn't going to see Shikamaru again after his frequent hospital visits. He liked Shikamaru. He didn't want to admit it, but he liked him. The people of Konoha were indifferent towards sexuality. It didn't really matter whether or not he liked a boy or a girl. Neji really didn't like people, but Shikamaru was an exception. He was smart, kind, funny and cute to top it all off.
Neji sat under a tree and meditated when he heard the sound of footsteps in the grass. He looked up to see Shikamaru standing in front of him. “Hey,” he said with a smile, “I've been looking for you.” he sat down next to Neji and rested his head against it. Neji smiled at him and closed his eyes.
“I need to do some training,” he said, “I need to get back on track.”
Shikamaru looked at him. “I can train with you if you want.”

Neji was in the last leg of his stint at the Konoha Hospital and had his medication switched. Although the medication was strong and relieved the pain, it tore up his stomach. Since many of the people who took the medication got sick right after, it was often injected.
Neji was curled up in a ball in his bed when Shikamaru arrived. Neji heard him and sat up. “How are you feeling?” Shikamaru asked. Without being able to answer, Neji leaned over and violently vomited into the garbage pale next to his bed. Shikamaru stood there with a shocked expression on his face. Neji sat back up and wiped his mouth.
“Sorry,” Neji said softly, “this new medication isn't good to my stomach.”
“It's fine.” Shikamaru said with a sigh. He then got a cold towel, a dish of cold water and a paper towel. He sat on Neji's bed and wiped his face. Neji noticed that Shikamaru was blushing while he was doing this kind gesture. He didn't make a smart comm
