25-3-11 Hmm… Hello, all. This isn't the original fic, rather a rewrite of it. Though, to my original readers, it's not much different, just that I edited it and changed some of the people's names.
Vetty: I don't own this. If I did, the whole world would be waiting for updates on the manga, and the anime would be put on hold.

Chapter 1: Seals and Summons
In the forests surrounding Konoha
"Quickly, we must hurry with the sealing process!" cried a brown-haired man carrying an infant girl, around a year old. His wife, who was the child's mother, had tears running down her face as they summoned Ruri, the wolf-boss, to confront the ten-tailed demon dragon: the Jyuubi no Ryuu, who was currently stomping towards Konoha at quite a fast pace.
"So, what brings me here today, Rina-chan and Shinji-kun?" growled the deep voice of Ruri.
"Sorry about the late notice, but we have to confront the Jyuubi no Ryuu and seal him into our dear baby daughter, Tenten. It will be a large burden to for her, but at least, if the villagers shun her, she will have a friend who is also will be shunned in the village. Minato's sealing the Kyuubi no Kitsune into his and Kushina-nee-chan's newborn son, Uzumaki Naruto, around about now. Hopefully, when she gets older, she will get the wolf contract and summon you, so that she can hear our last words to her: We will always love you and you will remain in our hearts forever. May you live a happy life and accomplish all your goals in life", Shinji said solemnly, as Rina sobbed out their last words to be passed onto Tenten.
"As you wish. Since you were the best summoners I have known over all my years, I shall give her the wolf summoning tattoo, as it is unlikely that she will come across the summoning contract someday," Ruri rumbled, and with one of her claws, touched little Tenten's back. An image of a blue and silver wolf lying on its paws appeared on her lower back and shimmered with an iridescent metallic blue hue before turning back to its normal colours.
"It will shimmer the same way as just then, when Tenten comes of age and she will summon me to tell her your last words. Then she will sign the wolf contract. Now for the sealing..."said the wolf-boss, trailing off.
"Here comes the dragon," said Shinji soberly. "Rina-chan, help me out: Shiki Fuuin!"
Rina placed Tenten down in front of them and then placed her hand on the girl's exposed stomach. As her husband uttered the summoning for the Shinigami, he placed his hands over his wife's hands. The Shinigami appeared, in its ghostly, godly form and asked," Who is it that you wish to seal?"
Shinji answered, "the King of Bijuu, the Jyuubi no Ryuu, Shinigami-sama."
"But surely you know that sealing it will require two soul sacrifices, instead of the usual one," Shinigami replied.
"Yes, and I am absolutely sure of this sealing, Shinigami-sama. It is to protect Konoha from another demon rampage, especially with the destruction of the Kyuubi coming as well," Shinji said, with the air of finality.
"Very well. If your wish is to protect this village, then so it be," Shinigami said, while sealing the Jyuubi's soul into a screaming Tenten and retrieving the souls of Rina and Shinji. "Hmm... I have a feeling I am needed in the village for a certain Minato Namikaze and Kyuubi no Kitsune..." mumbled Shinigami absentmindedly, and faded from view.
Ruri shifted to her medium wolf size, which was about 10 feet tall (yea, I'm aussie but I use feet), and gently picked up the now sniffling child and loped off to find Sarutobi.
The other side of the village
Shinobi forces constantly kept attacking the giant monstrous fox, who batted away the attacks as if they were sheets of paper. Its red-slitted eyes flicked around searching for something, yet not finding it. Its tails wiped nine paths of destruction, until a blond haired man holding a newborn boy appeared on the head of a giant toad with a dagger sheathed on its side and its cloak fluttering in wind from the tails.
"Gamabunta, can you please tell Naruto this when he is older: I'm sorry Naruto, that I couldn't be in your life. You would probably be hating me for sealing the furball into you, but I think you are capable of containing such a demon. I hope you are looked at by the villagers as a hero, not a demon," said Minato Namikaze, his tears dripping onto the face of the serene sleeping baby.
"As you wannit, Minato-kun," replied Gamabunta sadly.
"Now for the sealing: Shiki Fuuin!" shouted Minato, while placing his hands onto Naruto's exposed abdomen.
Shinigami appeared and asked "Who is it that you want to seal?"
"The Kyuubi no Kitsune, Shinigami-sama, so that I can protect Konoha from the Kyuubi destroying the whole village, and the Jyuubi to suddenly turn up and assist the Kyuubi for mass destruction," answered Minato.
"It is so ironic that you rephrased the same sentence that sealmaster Shinji and his wife Rina said just before they sealed the Jyuubi no Ryuu into the one-year-old Tenten," chuckled Shinigami, who suddenly sneezed due to a certain couple in its stomach chatting about blackmailing it later (to think that they can actually try to blackmail Shinigami!)
"Rina-chan and Shinji-san are in YOUR STOMACH, from sealing the JYUUBI NO RYUU into their kid? At least I know I won't be alone after sealing Kyuubi, and that Naruto will find at least two people that he can trust (Sarutobi, remember?)," exclaimed Minato, looking shocked.
"Yes they are. Will you please stop all this idle chit-chat with THE Shinigami-sama, so that I can seal the damned furball?" asked Shinigami, looking quite annoyed.
"Oh yeah, go ahead. Bye Gamabunta and remember to tell Naruto my final *cough* words..." Minato trailed off as Shinigami took his soul and sealed Kyuubi into the screaming Naruto.
"I am very satisfied with the souls I took. At least I can monitor them playing poker..." mumbled Shinigami absentmindedly as it faded from view.
Gamabunta gently used his tongue to carry the now quiet Naruto, towards Sarutobi, who was fighting on the Hokage Monument.
Gamabunta suddenly leapt towards Sarutobi, carrying something, or someone in his tongue, as Ruri bounded out from the forests towards him with a small bundle held gently between her teeth.
Gamabunta reached the monument first. "Minato-kun has completed the sealing process and I have come to deliver his son Naruto to you," he announced in a soft voice only for Sarutobi's ears to listen to. "Well, I better be going no, old monkey man". He unwound his tongue from around the bundle, handed him Naruto and poofed in a giant plume of smoke.
Ruri suddenly landed behind Sarutobi and told him in a hushed tone," Shinji-kun and Rina-chan have finished their sealing on Tenten. Here she is." She gently placed the bundle in Sarutobi's arms, and looked down in happiness at the two bundles snuggled in his arms. She gently touched Naruto's shoulder with the tip of her claw, drawing a faint silvery-blue paw mark, with a six-pointed star in the middle, which shimmered an iridescent metallic blue before returning to its original colour. "They are destined in the wolf star lores to be together, whether it be siblings or a couple," she wolf-smiled down at them. "Well, I must be gone. Farewell Sarutobi, Naruto-kun, Tenten-chan. 'Til we next meet," and she disappeared in a poof of smoke.
Sarutobi looked down at the two peaceful children. 'Hmm,' he thought, 'what should I do with you two. I would really like to adopt you kids but I guess it's the orphanage for you. I think I'm getting too old for this shit, especially with me becoming the next Hokage, again.'
Council Room, one month later
"We should kill the demons!" yelled out Satoru, the Haruno civilian clan head, as Fugaku, the Uchiha clan head, nodded in agreement. Tsume, the Inuzuka clan head, Shikaku, the Nara clan head, Inoichi, the Yamanaka clan head, Shibu, the Aburame clan head and Choza, the Akimichi clan head, shouted out their protests, while Hiashi, the Hyuuga clan head, just sat in his chair, looking bored and being neutral, but secretly, he was thinking of taking the majority of the council's judgment.
"SILENCE!" thundered Sarutobi, already half-deaf from all the shouting and the yelling on the sides they took. He looked around at the council. It seemed that the shinobi council, with the exception of Satoru, was in favour of the children staying alive. The rest of the civilian council was mainly opposing the shinobi council, and Danzo, Homura and Koharu were just looking on impassively.
"Since most of us are still arguing over this matter, we will vote on it!" called Sarutobi, rubbing his temples from all the noise. "Those in favour of the children staying, raise your hands". Surprisingly, Danzo and his old teammates raised their hands, as well as the shinobi council, excluding Satoru, and one member of the civilian council.
"Good. Since there are more votes on the children staying, they will be staying in Konoha," Sarutobi declared. This brought an outbreak of protests from the civilian council, and the leave of Satoru. "How can we trust them?" they shouted.
"Shut up, civilian council," said Hiashi, standing up. The civilians shut their mouths immediately, after they were insulted by the head of one of the strongest clans in Konoha. "I don't care what you people think, but if we had not had the demons sealed into the bodies of the children, then you and I wouldn't be here at this moment. For Kami's sake, they were the highest ranked demons. The Kyuubi already destroyed like half of Konoha from a few sweeps of its tails. If the Kyuubi is not the highest ranked demon, but the second highest, then what would the Jyuubi be like? It would probably destroy the whole of Fire Country with sweeps of its ten tails. Be glad that Shinji-sama and Rina-sama stopped it near the border of Fire Country. Also, you have no power over two of Konoha's shinobi children harbouring the demons, according to Law Number 83," Hiashi sat back down.
"You do know that this is right?" Sarutobi asked, addressing the council. "Now since the votes are in, the children will be staying, no excuses civilian council. Now, the council is dismissed," he waved his hand in dismissal, and promptly marched out the council room with both children in his arms.
'Seems like I have no choice,' thought Sarutobi. 'I'll have to put them both in the orphanage.'
Sarutobi entered the orphanage and approached the woman at the counter. "Higurashi Tenten and Uzumaki Naruto," he told her, which she wrote down on a slip of paper, and gave the two infants to her.
"There are so many kids that were left here because their parents wouldn't know if they would survive the Kyuubi attack, Hokage-sama," she grumbled, taking them in her arms and placing them in the room behind her.
"Thankyou, Mizoshi-san," the Hokage said, spying her name card pinned to her shirt. He exited the orphanage and returned to his paperwork-loaded office.
'Sigh. I still have all that damn paperwork from Kyuubi's attack...'
