I do not own Naruto
Kakashi stared. This fox was huge! The sheer size seeming unmeasurable especially with the golden light surrounding it making it seem like more of a mirage. The buildings on either side of the alley were crumbled into dust from the power. Yet, the beast held Kakashi's eyes; eyes that looked down on him and the rest of humanity. Eyes that spoke of age unparalleled. Eyes looking for a threat...
Suddenly Kakashi's staring contest was interrupted as red filled his vision. A woman with long red hair stood between him and the beast and began to yell at it, "WHO ARE YOU!— I TAKE THAT BACK, I DONT CARE! GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM!" now it was time for her to hold a staring contest. Kakashi struggled to remember her, he knew she was a jounin and really famous for her temper—man, Kakashi was angry at himself for forgetting such information! She didnt hold a weapon which suggested to him that she was either going to use ninjuitsu or a counter-seal.
Nothing short of drastic is going to work Kakashi thought. The Uchiha seemed to have the same idea as one tried to use the shiringhan. As Kakashi watched the man stood bravely in front of the fox and looked it strait in the eye seeming to entrance the beast as it stood captivated...
Before the it promptly slashed him with its claws.
The man had no time to make a sound and was dead before he hit the ground—in three pieces. The beast seemed more agitated now and actively sought out the Uchiha which (of course Kakashi would think later) prompted Uchiha Obito to try and approach the figure huddling beneath the fox by getting closer to the fox. Kakashi (being the great ninja that he is) ran to try and stop the idiot—only because his guts would make a mess that would have to be cleaned up later. He got to the idiot just as the fox decided he was a threat and ended up facing the enormous entity. Their eyes met yet again and the fox seemed to get back on the defensive instead of offensive, which was as gratifying as puzzling. Kakashi grabbed a hold of obit and was about to forcefully place him somewhere less in the way when he caught a glimpse of the figure Obito had been trying to approach. It was far too small to be an adult, but it was definitely human.
Rule 25: A shinobi must never show emotion
Never before had Kakashi been so tempted to break that rule. When his father had been disgraced and the entire village turned to spurn the Hatake name Kakashi had resolved not to let them know how much it hurt. He stood tall and worked hard to try and be good enough to make up for his father's failure. Then, when his father killed himself he swore to be the perfect ninja. He shoved the memories of his father into a box in the back of his mind and put so many chains and locks on it he could sleep without seeing his father's blank eyes. He had to be strong, he had to be emotionless, he had to not want to complicate the situation further by upsetting the fox.
So why did he? He looked at the little figure and decided: if the kid isn't a civilian (who we would have to save anyway) them it probably has the Intel to stop the fox. Looking back at the fox as it didn't seem to want to attack him—which was odd—Kakashi yelled up to it, "Hey, fox! Let the kid go!" Vaguely he noted that the other ninja surrounding the fox were looking at him now, but he felt if he didn't hold the fox's eyes he would be killed.
Your eyes have changed since I have seen you last. You look weak.
The fox's mouth didn't move but there was no question that it was what spoke. Kakashi's face didn't change at the insult, but inside he was fuming. Damn fox. The beast chuckled in amusement making Kakashi feel like his blank face was showing far too much.
This is not our time, so until we are returned to our own time you will watch this kit. Understood Hatake? Be grateful, for that only means I like you slightly more than other pathetic, wretched humans. Of course if anything happens this village will be flattened.
With that said the fox began to fade like smoke that had been contained suddenly being free. Minutes passed. The air was still thick with tension long after the fox was gone and nobody dared move. Minato was the first to hesitantly walk towards the small figure that was still on the ground where the fox had been. Everyone watched him silently, muscles taught waiting for the next attack.
When Minato was within ten feet of the figure, it seemed to shrink back away from him. Even when he stopped and crouched down to seem less threatening the figure kept sliding back. After a few minutes it became apparent the figure was too terrified to cooperate. Seeing Minato ready himself to jump at the figure to, as gently as he could, forcefully restrain it Kakashi stepped forward. He walked up the the figure as calmly and non-threateningly as he could just as Minato had. It stared at him and although it tensed it didn't move away.
The first thing Kakashi could tell about it was that it was white. VERY white. Short feathery white hair brushed against smooth porcelain skin and big colorless round eyes stared up at him. Even the clothes it wore were white although they looked like they were designed to be differently colored along the sleeves and collar than the rest of the jacket. Kakashi frowned, the jacket looked like it would fit someone years older than he was, let along a figure that tiny! And the thing was tiny—perhaps one or two years old?-so it was no wonder it was scared. When Kakashi was close enough the figure looked up at him revealing three white markings on ether cheek.
Once he got close enough Kakashi crouched down next to the figure, " State your name and explain your relationship to the fox." he asked in a flat voice. He heard Minato sigh behind him but kept his eyes on the kid. Who just blinked at him. A long moment passed before the kid held his arms out in front of him in the universal kid sign of "pick me up". The silence was broken by whispers behind them as the other ninja and the few civilians still in the area began to wounder at what to do next. Kakashi secretly hoped they would figure something out because he sure had no clue, but as he listened he heard the gossip start—about him, his father, the fox, the kid—and suddenly didn't want to be there anymore.
Scooping up the kid in his arms he walked back to Minato.
Please review so i know this is worth continuing.
Also, if my characters act too OOC please tell me and I'll try to change it, thanks!
