Summary :- As the remnants of the White Zetsu Army are eradicated one by one, the Hyūga cousins, Neji and Hinata fight side by side with Hinata protecting the newly-recuperated Neji. During this time, Hinata remembers the time that Neji protected her when they were younger: Neji was left in charge of Hinata’s training as her father Hiashi had left the village on other duties. During the gruelling training, Hinata’s eyesight became severely strained and she is put on bed-rest by a doctor in order to recover. Not wanting Hinata to miss the fireworks that she had made plans to attend with Team Kakashi, Neji goes to seek out the Eyebright plant that is fabled to grow in the Valley of Judgement, despite being advised against it. Accompanied by Naruto and Sakura, they make their way to the valley, where they are beset upon by humanoid creatures, without faces. Though they initially put up a valiant effort to stave them off, it starts becoming increasingly apparent that they it would become a battle of attrition until Might Guy and Kakashi Hatake make a surprise appearance and send the creatures scurrying away. After explaining why they are there, Kakashi notes that the search for the plant is futile and with that they all return to the village. Later, during the fireworks display, Hinata sits on her verandah for the display. In present time she reveals to Neji that Naruto and Sakura had told her the lengths he went through to help her, and had always wanted to thank him. With that, they resolve to defeat the enemy until Naruto arrives on the battlefield.
