Nine years ago, Konohagakure no Sato was attacked by the Kyuubi no Kitsune. The destruction caused by the fox was immense; countless Shinobi died protecting their village and many innocent lives were taken.

Finally, the Yondaime Hokage of Konohagakure stepped up onto the battlefield. With him, he carried a newborn baby. When he confronted Kyuubi, he used the Shiki Fuujin no Jutsu to summon the Shinigami to seal the Great Fox into the child. The dying man's last words were that the child was to be treated like a hero, for it was merely the container of the Kyuubi, not the demon itself.

Unfortunately, the villagers only saw the demon that destroyed their homes and family. They treated the Jinchuuriki like a piece of trash, like he wasn't worth their kindness. And so, the child, Uzumaki Naruto, grew up hated by his own village for something he wasn't in control of.

In truth, the seal on his stomach not only sealed the demon but sealed his, or rather her, true self. Namikaze Naru, daughter of the Yondaime Hokage, Namikaze Minato and Uzumaki Kushina, and heir to the Namikaze and Uzumaki clans was sealed away, and in her place Uzumaki Naruto came into being. But Naru wasn't clueless of who she was; she knew everything and she kept up a mask so that the enemies of her parents wouldn't find her. The one thing she didn't know about was the Kyuubi. And so her story begins on October 10, her ninth birthday.

Chapter One: The Fox's Tale

'Damn it! I should've known not to come out today!' Thought Naru as blows rained down on her.

A mob had caught her and chased her down an ally. They had grabbed whatever they could find that was either hard, pointy, sharp or all three when they saw 'the Kyuubi Brat'. They were using all of said things to beat her up. She thought that they would never stop. When they finally left, Naru was pretty sure she had broken at least one fractured rib. She carefully took stock of pain, and found several cuts and bruises on her shoulders, back and arms. She slowly sat up, trying to keep as much pressure off of her ribs as she could. When she lifted her head, a wave of dizziness overwhelmed her and her world descended into darkness. The last thing she saw was a pair of spinning red eyes and wings.

When she gained consciousness, she saw that she was in front a huge sealed cage.

"Where am I?" asked Naru to herself. She didn't expect the answer that came.

"You're in your mind, kit. You couldn't handle all of the pain and you fainted. Tch! Those bakas have not a single ounce of common sense in them!" boomed an angry voice. Naru noticed that the voice was coming from the inside of the cage.

"Umm…Who are you?" Asked Naru to whoever or what ever was in that cage.

"I am the Kyuubi no Kitsune. I was the one that attacked Konoha seven years ago, and before you jump to conclusions, hear me out, kit. It wasn't my fault," replied the Fox.

"I thought that it was you, but I wanted to make sure. It's not hard to put two and two together after hearing people call you demon and that your birthday is on the day the Kyuubi was 'supposedly' killed," said Naru.

'Smart kit,' thought the Kyuubi approvingly, 'She has the potential to become a true Kunoichi, and not those bimbos that call only care about getting mates through being a Shinobi.'

"Kit, I won't let you get hurt just because of lack of proper training as a Shinobi, and I won't let your potential go to waste either. I'll train you to be both my heir and the greatest Shinobi alive."

"Okay, Kyuubi, I accept. Now, can you tell me how the attack on Konoha was not your fault?" asked Naru.

"I'll tell you the long story tomorrow. In a nutshell, Orochimaru murdered all of my kits but one, and murdered my mate. I had gone into a rage when I saw their blood stained bodies in our den. Snake-bastard was a Sannin of Konoha, so I had thought that your village had ordered him to do so. Everything was blurry and I can't remember much until I got sealed into your stomach."

"What I do remember, though, is a man with yellow hair and blue eyes standing on a toad, and an infant's cry. The man was your father, Naru. You are the daughter of this village's savior, the Yondaime Hokage, and of my daughter, Uzumaki Kushina," explained Kyuubi. Naru blinked once at the fox before exclaiming,

"Wait a sec...My mom was your daughter!?"
