The crackling of fire filled the air and the faint swishes of quick movement were also heard. The Yondaime Hokage basically flew through the air, under his white and red-flamed cloak and from the torn back of the Jounin jacket under the cloak, a pair of ash and midnight blue-hued feathered wings beat as he tried to get as close as possible to the demon fox terrorizing Konohagakure no Sato. On the hands of the young Kage was a newborn baby who was the spitting image of the Yondaime, except for the three whisker marks on each cheek and the not yet developed wings.

"Minato, stop right now!" a voice came from behind the blonde Kage, now known as Minato Namikaze. There stood a man with long, white spiky hair, red tear-like lines from the edges of his eyes, and a metal head band with the kanji for "oil" engraved in black.

"Jiraiya-sensei," he frowned, "You know as well as me that this is the only way to stop the Kyuubi no Youko from destroying Konoha completely," he folded his wings under the cloak.

Jiraiya sighed and looked directly at the eyes of Minato, not once gasping at the sight of his wings; after all, he was his sensei. "This will cause some problems in the future for the boy, gaki. This is a burden that may cause him to have a lonely life, even more if he lost both his parents."

"It has to be done, sensei," he turned towards the Kyuubi and flew off again, one feather loosened and floated down to the stained earth.

Jiraiya took the feather and looked as Minato flew away. "I will surely remember you as the best student I had, Minato-kun."

Minato stood on top of a tree a few yards away from the Kyuubi and made a series of hand seals. "Kuchiyose no jutsu!" he said and a poof of smoke took over the entire area, the shinobi holding back the Kyuubi retreated as they noticed the signal from their beloved Hokage. A giant toad with a blue jacket, and a "short" tanto on his side appeared on the field in front of the Kyuubi.

"Ha! Gamabunta, long time no see! Helping these weakling humans?!!" yelled the Kyuubi as his tails flailed wildly.

"Gaki, you cannot be serious!" the toad boss said at the winged human on top of his head.

"I know, Bunta-sama, but I'll do whatever it takes to save my precious village," Minato said to the toad boss.

"Well, then let's get this over with." Gamabunta jumped at the Kyuubi with his tanto in a striking pose.

The Kyuubi cackled and jumped to the side as the fight between toad and demon fox began.

After long minutes of blocking and attacking, Gamabunta had pinned the Kyuubi to the ground. "Now, Minato!"

Minato went over a long series of hand seals and called his jutsu, "Shiki Fuujin jutsu!" A cold temperature took over the air around him and from the mist that suddenly appeared behind him emerged a cloaked figure, which had bony arms that wielded a weapon belonging only to the Shinigami.

"Ah, Namikaze Minato, the last of the Namikaze clan, how long have I been waiting for the opportunity to call you," its voice screamed death.

"Shinigami-sama, in exchange for my soul, I want the Kyuubi to be sealed inside this newborn child I hold in my arms," Minato said full of determination.

"Yes… it shall be done."

The Shinigami thrust his arm through Minato's stomach and quickly grabbed onto the Kyuubi. Throughout the whole country the screams of surprising agony of the demon fox were heard. The Shinigami pulled on its soul and held it to the stomach of the newborn.

The baby screamed as pain overtook it and the Kyuubi's last screams were heard as the baby became unconscious and a spiral seal glowed on his stomach. Minato let a weak chuckle and fell to his knees holding the baby.

"I'll miss you greatly, Minato-san," Gamabunta dispelled himself.

Minato was sent spiraling towards the moist soil below and the Shinigami held to his side of the bargain as he entirely pulled the soul from the winged blonde. Minato fell on his back as the rain began to fall on his face. A trickle fell from his eyes down to his cheeks.

"My son, I am very sorry this had to happen. I will promise you that I'll always be watching you… Uzumaki-Namikaze Naruto," he smiled weakly and began to feel faint.

Suddenly an old man appeared by his side followed by Jiraiya. "Minato!" they both screamed and fell to his sides.

"Ah, Hiruzen-sama, Jiraiya-sensei, I'm sorry. I ask for something as my last wish, I want him," he looked at the unconscious baby, "to be seen as a hero. He's the jailer of the Kyuubi no Youko, the King of all Bijuu. He's also my son, Uzumaki-Namikaze Naruto. Please…" he let out a bloody cough, "take care… of… him," his eyes closed and the hand holding on to Naruto fell limply at his side.

Hiruzen bowed his head in reverence and let Jiraiya handle the blonde baby onto his arms. That's when he noticed that the ground below them were many ash feathers, all coming from Minato. Hiruzen lifted the body of his dead successor and what was below the once white cloak surprised him. "Jiraiya-san, after all this time, even after death, he kept these a secret from everyone," he glanced at the ruined beautiful wings.

"That's not the only thing," Jiraiya faked surprise, "It looks like whatever were those wings, his son is already beginning to grow them," he showed Hiruzen the fragile back of the sleeping baby, two tiny bumps on his shoulder blades.

Hiruzen sighed, "We might have to seal them away, so he doesn't encounter too much trouble growing up. And when he's old enough, he'll learn of his heritage, his Kekkei Genkai, and the Kyuubi no Youko."

Jiraiya nodded and covered up the baby in some fresh blankets he had carried and both men disappeared from the plain, leaving the scattered feathers behind for anyone to imagine what happened there.

A/N: Ha-cha! Yeah, yeah, I don't do action scenes cause I suck... big time, but I try my hardest. To be honest with myself I think my style of writing needs work, but I'll leave as is until I can find ways to correct it or something. Oh, well... Like it? Dislike it? Needs fixing? Any criticism allowed really. ^^;

¡Hasta luego, amigos!
