Kakashi returned a few hours later to find his home going up in smoke...

Literally.

"Holy shit..." Just what the hell had Kitsune been doing this past four hours? He wondered as he watched the wood roof cave in causing the red, orange flames to jump higher. So this is what happened when Kitusne got pissed? Well, it was nice to know just how destructive her temper could be so that he could take the time to nail down his furniture and hide his matches next time. Maybe slap a little chakra suppressing collar around her pretty little neck to save his home from being burnt down again.

Luckily for him he had been more or less prepared for almost every senario that could have led to this and had kept his sealing scrolls on him just in case Kitsune had decided to destroy something major. He could set up another home easily if he used one of the models in the house scroll that he had made. And he could re furnish it with his furniture scroll. So he wasn't terribly upset about this turn of events.

He was just...caught off guard. That's all.

He was about to go looking for his insane mate when he saw something moving along in front of his house, just beyond the flames. Ah, there she was. Dancing around his burning house in all her enraged vindictive feminine glory.

Damn. Why couldn't she be dancing naked? He wondered as he put down the plastic bags with their dinner in them and started walking towards her. His mis matched eyes focused on Kitsune's slender figure, swaying to the beat of imaginary music. He came up behind her and wrapped an arm around her hips and yanked her back against him, she gave a startled yelp as she hit him and looked up at him with wide innocent eyes.

"I'm of half a mind to throttle you." He growled as she tried to squirm out of his grasp. He stopped her by wrapping his fingers around her throat in an threatening manner as he dragged her closer to him.

"I wouldn't if I were you."

"And why not?" He asked in a dangerously low tone as he moved back away from the blistering heat of the flames, taking her with him because he was worried that she might trip and fall into the flames if he didn't.

"Because you'd be down a very charming companion." She snickered at him.

"Maybe, but my personal effects wouldn't be charred to ashes and my property values would sky rocket. Besides, if I throttled you now, I could simply keep your adorable little body and play with it at my leisure."

She gave him an alarmed look and he gave her an evil smile. "Y-You wouldn't." She said in a nervous tone as she wet her lips with the tip of her tongue. His eyes flickered to her lips and he stared at her lips for a second, remembering all the times that she had pleasured him with that sweetly sinful little mouth. His blood thickened in his veins and started to burn as it pulsed through him.

Stop thinking about those things. She doesn't recall them. Behave yourself and stop thinking about all the naughty things you can't wait to do to her! Kakashi thought as his breath hitched in his throat and he leaned down a little more and stopped with his lips a mere hairs breath from her own and whispered.

"Wouldn't I? Are you sure you want to try me?" Naru's eyes widened and he laughed at her horrified expression and let her go then said cheerfully.

"I'm sure that you'll behave a little better from now on. And if you don't well, I guess you don't have to be alive and breathing for me to love on you a bit. But for now I'll have to content myself to enjoy your company as you are-" He gave a heavy sigh and shook his head. "But it'll be a bit of a sacrifice since I sort of like the idea of you being cooperative and letting me have my wicked way with you."

Naru's face paled a little bit and he gave her a deranged look that would have sent a normal female scampering for cover. But not her. No, his precious little kit didn't have the common sense that god gave a flea. But she knew a bluff when she heard one, he was sure of it as she looked at him and said in a slightly shaky tone. "Your playing with me."

He shrugged. So what if he was. A little healthy dose of fear never killed anyone. And she should be aware that he had a dark sense of humor that he planned to indulge in constantly since he now had a captive audience. "So what if I am?" He asked curiously.

"That isn't very funny."

He shrugged again. "Maybe not to you, but I am still a mite partual to the idea. And you should be made aware that you are more or less at my mercy. I could do pretty much anything I wanted to you and no one would be able to save you." He said warningly.

"You don't seem the type to use strength to hurt someone."

"Oh. I'm not honey. I like to play with my prey before I break it." Kakashi said as he gave her a sunny smile.

"Is that what I am? Prey?" Naru asked curiously. Kakashi gave her a slow once over and licked his lips.

Oh definitely. "Yes and no. I didn't bring you here and trap you so that I could break you." He said the words because she apparently needed to be assured of his intentions, even though she probably wouldn't believe him.

"Then why did you bring me here?"

"I told you before, I'm crazy." He said half jokingly with a chuckle. Naru didn't share his amusement. She really thought he was genuinely crazy. He stopped laughing and cleared his throat after a second or so and rubbed the back of his neck almost compulsively.

"Right. Sorry. I should probably explain things better. The long and short of it is this, my being crazy has nothing to do with this...not really anyways. I asked you to marry me earlier and you thought that I was joking. It was a little hurtful, but I understand that you don't know me, so I'm going to remedy that. I brought you here so that I could spend time with you and woo you without distraction. Get it now?"
