I'm to impulsive with my ideas, but recently this story idea caught my attention and I wanted to try it. I'm suppose to be finishing my other stories, but I figured I would write this to just get the idea down and started so I won't forget. I don't like to write such small amounts, but I'm leaving for class in like 10minutes and this is just suppose to be an intro. As such I'm not expecting many readers yet, but I'm hoping this story with slowly grow with time. Anyway, I've always wanted to try my hand at a Naruto fanfic. Have fun.

Update 1: A few minor spelling errors were corrected. Also it was brought to my attention that it's not "Kyuubi no Yoko" but "Kyuubi no Youko". I did a bit of checking and found this seems to be true. So I will now be using the "Youko" spelling instead. Aside from that little to nothing has changed.

The Trouble with Foxes

Chapter 1: Prologue, Deal with the Devil

Written by: Juggalomalice

Naruto awoke to find himself in the sewer like hallways of his mind. The low growls from his "roommate" could heard echoing against the walls from further inside.

Naruto grumbled to himself, "Not this again. Can't a guy get any sleep around here?"

The blonde ninja grumbled to himself as he stood up and began down the hallway towards the sealed cage at the end. The faster he could this over with the faster he could get back to sleep. He had made this trip multiple times in his life, but he had to admit it was never for recreation purposes and he doubted that he was summoned to this recess of his mind just so Kyuubi could say hello.

It wasn't long before he arrived at the gargantuan cage that held the Kyuubi no Youko. A pair of huge red eyes stared at the adolescent ninja from behind the shadows within the cage as a huge row of razor sharp teeth flashed him a very unnerving grin.

"Hello Kit, so glad you could answer my summons. I hope all as gone well for you so far." The booming voice of the fox demon echoed.

"Cut the crap Kyuubi!" Naruto shouted back. "We both know you didn't call me here so we can catch up on old times. Now what the hell do you want?"

"Rude and impulsive as always I see. Well if you must know I'm bored." Kyuubi answered as what sounded like a long sigh escaped the cage.

"Well that's not my problem. Get a hobby or something for all I care." Naruto replied as he slowly grew more impatient with this seemingly irrelevant conversation.

The demon's grin slowly shifted into a full smile as the sound of laughter rumbled through the room. "I'm so glad we agree in that. I've actually been considering that, but it's not very easy especially since I'm sealed inside your mind."

Naruto raised his brow in confusion. "Can you please hurry up and get to the point?"

"Well I guess I should cut to the chase. I want you to let me out."

"What?! Do you think I'm stupid or something?! Why on earth would I do something like that?" Naruto shouted wide-eyed.

"I figured that would be your response. Allow me to explain. I'm not asking you to let me out completely. More like on a trial basis. It won't be me per say you would be letting out, but my avatar if you will." The giant fox demon explained.

"And what makes you think I would help you? Never trust a fox is what I've learned."

A harsh growl emitted from the demon as it bit back it's growing anger. "You drive my patience Kit. From what I see you owe me. All these years I've helped you. Granting you my power and knowledge when you needed while never asking for any repayment and when I come to you with this small request you dare to deny me." The large red eyes narrowed at the small human, "Whether you want to admit it or not you owe me Kit."

Naruto was quiet as he considered this. It was true. The Kyuubi had helped him numerous times in the past and had asked for little of anything in thanks. "How can I make sure you won't go about trying to destroy the village again?" He asked.

"You can't Kit, but I assure you my avatar form is much weaker than my true form. I'm sure a handful of your villages stronger ninjas could handle me should I choose to start problems. Also you have no fear of me killing you since my soul will still be housed in your body. The avatar will allow me to experience the physical world again, but that makes me no less bound to you."

Naruto tilted his head up in thought. He still wasn't convinced, but so far he couldn't really find a reason to say no. "I'm still not sure."

"Did I mention I have knowledge to an ancient recipe to make some of the most delicious ramen you have ever tasted in your life?" The Kyuubi added.

"What?! Are you series? This I have to try. Alright Kyuubi, you got a deal, but if there are any signs of trouble you're going right back inside understood?"

"I'm glad we've reached an understanding Kit."

"But how do I release your avatar?" Naruto finally asked.

"It's simple. Much in the same way you create one of your Shadow Clones. As you know I can give you some of my chakra when needed. I will give you a very strong dose of chakra which you will use to create the clone. In the process I will transfer my own mind into the clone and then reshape the chakra energy to take on the form I wish. At this point it will no longer be a clone, but a living breathing being separate from yourself."

"Well that doesn't sound to hard."

"It isn't."

Naruto nodded as he looked back at the caged demon. "Does this mean I can go back to sleep?"

"Stupid Kit, don't you know? It's already time for you to get up."

"What?!" Naruto yelled before he vanished and returned to the real world.

The demon let out a long sigh or relief as it laid it's massive head on the ground. "And thank you, Kit."

End Chapter 1


This story probably won't get many updates, but if people show interest I'm sure I could pull out an additional chapter or two soon.
