Despite this fact, the amount of faith she had in him still came as a great surprise. When he'd first became a member of her peerage, Rias had been intrigued.She wanted to learn more about this mysterious figure who seemed so open and yet so distant and enigmatic at the same time; he'd become a mystery she wanted to solve.All that's left to do now is for us to go over there."Naruto gave a noncommittal nod. To top it off, if we don't win..." she trailed off, not wanting to even speak of what would happen if they lost. Naruto knew what was at stake."It's okay to be nervous," Naruto told her. I remember the first time I ever saw combat." A mildly self depreciating chuckle escaped his lips."I was so frightened that I ended up having to be saved by my jack ass of a teammate.There was just something about Naruto that made her feel like she could trust him with anything."This may come as a surprise, but out of all the people in my peerage, it is you that I trust the most."And it was a surprise, but mostly to Rias. Hadn't she spent nearly every waking moment with Naruto since reincarnating him?To that end, she had spent more time with Naruto than anyone else in an effort to unravel the person behind those bright blue eyes.In hindsight, it was only natural that she would end up trusting him more than anyone else.
Her arms came up and wrapped around his torso, pulling her body even closer, so close she could feel her bosom pushing against his pectorals. Hearing his voice caused Rias to press herself deeper against him.
In response, Naruto's grin widened, not just showing his pearly whites, but also stretching from ear to ear and making his eyes squint and his whiskers stretch.
It was actually a rather endearing look, even if Rias thought he looked kind of goofy. Even if this was not the first time they had shared an intimate moment together, the circumstance between now and then were different...actually, now that he was thinking about it, it really was just like Rias to randomly hug him.
It just took a while for him to actually speak because Naruto had a really bad tendency to blurt out the first thing that came to mind."Do you trust me? Rias just looked at him with wide eyes, as if she had not anticipated him asking such a question."Of course I trust you." It was almost surprising how quickly the answer came from her lips.
Even though she was caught off guard by the question, she still answered without a seconds hesitation.
