KG: Another Chapter of Naruto and Tsume.
Naruto: Why do you update so fast? I bet no more than 30% of the authors on this site update as fast as you.
KG: I will try and take that as a compliment. And to answer your question, I don't like to make people wait for chapters. I feel that making them wait for months is a sign of disrespect, but that might just be me.
Tsume: You sure take your readers feelings into account don't you?
KG: Of course. Without readers my stories are nothing, but a waste of space.
Naruto: Moving along, tell me why you thought it was good to set me up with Kyuubi-chan also?
Kyuubi: Aww Kit, don't you like lil ol' me?
Naruto: O-of course I do Kyuubi-chan. Just call it curiosity.
KG: Haha nice save Naruto. And to answer your question I am going to refer to a review from one of my readers,Ero-sennin56. He is right, how could you not fall for a hot demoness after all?
Kyuubi: Oh thank you for that comment Ero-sennin56(winks). See Naruto-kun, people think I am a hot demoness.
Naruto:K-Kyuubi-chan I think your hot. I-I mean that y-you a-are v-very-
KG: Okay english please, but I guess that is impossible with the blush across your face.
Naruto: S-shut up KG. Do your disclaimers.
KG: Very well. Kyuubi-chan take it away.
Kyuubi: With pleasure KG. *Ahem* KG don't own me, Naruto or Tsume.
Later that same day
Naruto finished all of his exercises as he looked up to see the dark sky across the training field. Naruto chuckled as he dismissed his clones as the memories of all their experiences rushed into him. Naruto had worked all that evening and could only smile at his progress or what he had done for a while. Naruto took in the memories of all the taijutsu stances and the clones' actions in his head as he also remembered the necessary handsigns for channeling chakra and for performing some low level ninjutsu. Naruto also smirked when he went over his kenjutsu book. He now knew the low level techniques for sword and the practices for each technique.
"Am I getting stronger Kyuubi-chan?" Naruto asked the hot demoness. Kyuubi chuckled as she sat in the cage.
"Your doing very well kit. I must say, even though you just started your making some great progress. It is almost obvious that you are the strongest academy student," Kyuubi told him. Naruto blushed from the praise as he decided to pack up for the day. Naruto soon remembered a certain friend who had invited him to dinner for the night. Naruto smiled as he ran home to wash up and change his clothes to meet his new friend. Not even the glares of the ignorant civilian population could get him down.
Kiba sat at the table with his mother and sister as he went over the day with them. He told them about his day at school and his new friend, Naruto Uzumaki. Tsume chuckled as Naruto's name seemed to be coming up a lot around her lately.
"And he totally put that emo Uchiha and his banshee, Sakura, in their place. You should have seen him. He had an Inuzuka's ferocity. I'm telling you I got chills just from him talking," Kiba said to them. Tsume and her other child, Hana laughed as they imagined the 'all powerful' uchiha being put in his place by the dead last.
"If he can talk down to that Uchiha, then he is okay in my book," Hana said with a smile. Tsume chuckled at her kids antics, but soon got ready to make dinner. Soon it dawned on Kiba of his invitation.
"Kaa-san, can Naruto come over for dinner tonight?" Kiba asked her. Tsume looked at Kiba with a raised eyebrow as she took in his words. Kiba had the never ending smile on his face as he looked at his mother. Tsume turned to Hana, who seemed to be begging also to meet this friend of Kiba's. Tsume chuckled as she was going to meet Naruto for a second time today.
"I wonder if Kami is trying to play with me," Tsume thought as she went over her children's request.
"Alright when is he coming?" Tsume asked him. Kiba jumped with some joy as he soon came back.
"At 9 p.m tonight," Kiba said to her. Tsume nodded as she decided to take out an extra plate for their guest.
"This night might be interesting," Tsume thought as a smile graced her face. Kiba and Hana smiled as they looked forward to seeing the blond boy.
With Naruto, 8:00 p.m
Naruto soon made it home as he closed the door. Naruto smirked as he looked at the time, he had some time to spare as he took off his training clothes. Naruto soon put all his training equipment away as he smiled all the way to the bathroom.
"Well someone is in a happy mood over a visit to someone's house," Kyuubi stated. Naruto nodded not catching the intent of the statement. Soon Naruto stepped into the bathtub as he soaked in the soothing warmth of the water.
"Kyuubi-chan, can we talk face to face?" Naruto asked her. Kyuubi looked in confusion at his strange request.
"Sure kit, you don't really need to ask. I don't mind you coming to visit. I quite enjoy your company," Kyuubi said to him. Naruto blushed, but nodded. He soon closed his eyes as he concentrated on his mindscape. Naruto smiled as he came to the sewer-like mindscape he had.
"Note to self: Fix this damn place later. Kyuubi-chan shouldn't be in something like this," Naruto thought as he walked past the bars. Naruto soon came up to Kyuubi as he took in her illustrious form and blushed. Kyuubi smiled as she relished in the thought that she could make him blush so easily with her body.
"What did you want to talk to me about Kit?" Kyuubi asked him. Naruto nodded as he sat down. Kyuubi followed suit as she knelt in a demure fashion.
"If you could assess my skills right now, how good are they?" Naruto asked her. Kyuubi raised one of her eyebrows as she adopted a thinking pose.
"Even though you have just started your training, I would say that you have high kage level chakra right now. You have around high genin chakra control of it from the exercises I had you do this morning and evening. You have genin level taijutsu and kenjutsu from your experiences with your clones and everything. It seems that it is hard to find any genjutsu books without going too far into the shinobi section of the library. I figured that the basics of things would be grouped together, but that isn't the case. Well in any case, I'm sure we will get to your genjutsu training over time. You can rely on me in helping you dispel any genjutsu for the time being. You don't really know any ninjutsu other than the ones the academy teaches you and the kage bunshin no jutsu that I showed you. We will have to find out your nature affinity for right now. Would you like to do that right now?" Kyuubi asked him. Naruto nodded, but soon looked slightly confused.
"What is a nature affinity?" Naruto asked her. Kyuubi showed a mixture of happiness and anger as she looked at him. She was chuckling from his innocence in the question, but mad that no one in the academy even taught that type of thing yet.
"Alright listen Kit. Your nature affinity is what determines the type on element you have. There are wind, fire, earth, water, and lighting affinities. The people in Konoha lean more to katon affinities. Those in Suna lean towards fuuton affinities. Iwa leans to doton affinities. Kiri goes to suiton affinities, and Kumo goes for raiton affinities. Just place your hand on top of mine. I will soon tell you what your affinity is," Kyuubi said to him. Naruto nodded as he put his left hand on top of hers. Kyuubi soon closed her eyes as she concentrated. Kyuubi then opened her eyes and smiled.
"Lucky you kit. You have three affinities. You are quite special. You have a fuuton affinity, a raiton affinity and a katon affinity, though that one might be from me. You are quite lucky as I am quite skilled at those three. I can send you the information for some training in them all and it won't take you too long to start training in their ninjutsu and manipulation," Kyuubi told him. Naruto smirked from the information and hugged Kyuubi in a thank you, being completely ignorant of her blush that came across her face.
"Thank you Kyuubi-chan, I am grateful to you for this," Naruto said to her. Kyuubi chuckled at his appreciation and nodded.
"Any time Naruto...kun," Kyuubi said shocking Naruto at the use of his name.
"Y-you used my name?" Naruto asked her still shocked. Kyuubi blushed as she tried to avoid his gaze.
"Yeah I suppose I did. I will call you that now. I can't call you kit forever," Kyuubi said to him. Naruto smiled as he hugged Kyuubi a little tighter.
"Kyuu-chan, can we work on my dojutsu right now?" Naruto asked her. Kyuubi smiled as she knew that he wasn't going to be silent about that for very long.
"Sure I can work on it, but changing one's genetic map isn't easy Naruto-kun, so it might be a few years before you can use it," Kyuubi said to him. Naruto nodded that he was more than happy to wait.
"It doesn't bother me Kyuu-chan. As long as I can have one that was made by you I am happy," Naruto told her. Kyuubi blushed again at his sweet words as she smiled.
"Flatterer," Kyuubi thought with a smile. Soon Kyuubi snapped out of her blush as she returned to Naruto.
"So what kind of eye jutsu would you like?" She asked him. Naruto thought for a minute as he smiled.
"I want a dojutsu that can copy any kind of jutsu," Naruto said hoping that was enough. Kyuubi looked at him like he had no creativity.
"All you want is the sharingan?" She asked him hoping that he said no. Naruto chuckled as he looked at her.
"No way Kyuu-chan. It will be like the sharingan in a sense, but totally superior to it," Naruto said to her. Kyuubi looked at him as she wondered what was going on in that head of his.
"I want a dojutsu that will enable me to even copy the blood limits of others. The sharingan can't do that from what they told us in the academy. When I look at people with my dojutsu, I want to be able to adapt to their stances and also have their eyes. My eyes will look at theirs and change my body or my eyes to one that suits the dojutsu that the other person has," Naruto explained. Kyuubi seemed to catch on as she hoped he was actually giving her a challenge.
"So you want a dojutsu that allows you to not only copy the blood limits and dojutsu of others, but you also want to be able to mimic their movements as you see them?" Kyuubi asked in a final summary. Naruto nodded with a smile as he looked at Kyuubi.
"Yeah, but I still wish to be able to copy ninjutsu and genjutsu like the sharingan. However, unlike Sasuke-teme except if it's an enemy I will ask permission from the person I copy or not if they piss me off," Naruto said to her with a smile. Kyuubi chuckled as she heard his declarations. Kyuubi soon cracked her hands as she stood up.
"Alright a challenge. I can do that for you. Though due to the complexity of it, you might have to wait a few years for it. However I can tell you that when it's done you will be quite happy with it. What do you want to name it?" She asked him. Naruto smiled as he took a thinking pose.
"Since it can copy anything. Can I call it the Shinseinagan(Divine Eye of Light)?" Naruto asked her. Kyuubi smirked at the name and had to admit that it sounded good coming from him.
"Nice name Naruto-kun. I will get started right now while you go to dinner," Kyuubi said to him. Naruto nodded as he soon stood up.
"See you later Kyuu-chan," Naruto said to her. Kyuubi waved goodbye as she saw Naruto leave. Kyuubi soon smiled as she breathed deeply.
"Aright time to get to work," Kyuubi said as she walked off deeper into the seal until she vanished.
Naruto was soon brought out of his mindscape as he wondered how long he had been in the tub. Deciding to scrub himself down a bit more, Naruto washed his hair and the rest of his body as he soon got out of the tub. Naruto soon fixed his hair back into it's spiky style and looked at the time. He still had about 25 minutes left until he had to go to dinner at the Inuzuka Compound. Naruto chuckled as he rubbed the towel through is body and dried himself off. Naruto soon went to his closet as he pulled out some blue jeans along with a navy blue shirt. Naruto smirked as he put on his shoes.
"Alright, everything is good. I suppose I can arrive early," Naruto said to himself as he walked out the door. Naruto decided to be safe as he jumped across the rooftops to avoid the crowds of people and good thing too. He managed to see some people with torches and sharp objects as they headed for his apartment. Naruto wasn't worried as the seal that his Jiji gave him would protect the apartment from the short fuse that the villagers seemed to carry. Ignoring that, Naruto made his way to the Inuzuka compound as Kiba had told him about how to find it and what it looked like.
Naruto managed to come up to the door with no attention being drawn to him as he looked around for any people who would be hostile towards him. Breathing a sigh of relief Naruto knocked on the door. Naruto smiled as he waited at the door. He heard someone yell for a minute of time as they slowly appeared to the door. The person opened the door and looked down to see the blond at the door.
"Why hello Naruto," Tsume said to him. Naruto smiled as he nodded.
"Hello Tsume-chan. Um Kiba said that I could come over for dinner. Is that okay?" Naruto asked her. Tsume smiled as she was happy that he wanted to confirm it with her before entering.
"That is right Naruto. Kiba told me and you are more than welcome to come in for dinner. The food is already made, we weren't even waiting long for you. We only waited for about four minutes. Come on it," Tsume said to him. Naruto nodded with a smile as he entered the compound. Naruto took his shoes off as he walked on the wooden floor of the Inuzuka house. Naruto looked around as he saw pictures of Tsume, Kiba and another girl. Naruto looked around the house until he heard running as the noise came down the stairs. Naruto looked to see a few dogs come at him. Naruto smirked as he scratched one on the ears as the dog seemed to enjoy itself. The dog had black hair that made it seem very wolf-like, though it was from the Inuzuka clan after all. Tsume nearly gasped at the action as the dog who's ears Naruto was scratching was one of the most stubborn females in the Inuzuka clan. She wouldn't let anyone near her for some reason and yet here was Naruto scratching her ears like it was just another day at the compound for him. Tsume soon smiled as Naruto leaned up. The female dog soon licked his face as he chuckled from the affection he received.
"She is a good girl," Naruto said to Tsume. Tsume couldn't believe what she heard as she looked at Naruto.
"Naruto do you know what you just did?" Tsume asked him. Naruto shook his head in slight fear as he wondered if he did something wrong.
"You just tamed one of our most stubborn female dogs. She hasn't let anyone touch her apart from me. You just scratched her ears and now look at her," Tsume said as she pointed to her. Naruto looked down and smiled as he saw her lean her body on his right leg. Naruto smiled as he rubbed her back.
"I see no problem with her Tsume-chan. She is very cute," Naruto said to her. Tsume chuckled as the dog yipped like she was answering his compliment.
"What is her name?" Naruto asked her. Tsume shrugged her shoulders.
"We haven't name her. Every time someone tried, she only growled as a sign that she hated the name, so no one named her," Tsume said. Tsume then lit up with a smile as she looked at Naruto.
"Why don't you try it?" She asked him. Naruto looked at her in shock.
"Are you sure? I mean am I allowed to?" Naruto asked her. Tsume nodded.
"I don't see why not. You have obviously surpassed most of the clan as she has taken a liking to you already," Tsume said with a smile. Naruto nodded as he looked down at her. He smiled as she seemed to be waiting for a name from the cute blond in front of her. Naruto soon knelt down and rubbed her head.
"I think that Kasumi is a good name," Naruto said to her. Tsume looked down as the dog yipped as she seemed to accept the name. Tsume chuckled as she walked around Naruto with her body hard pressed against his.
"I think she likes that name also. Kasumi huh?" Tsume said. Kasumi accepting the name that Naruto gave her. Naruto and Tsume chuckled as Tsume took Naruto into the kitchen. Naruto soon came in to see Kiba and another girl at the table. Naruto looked down to see Akamaru next to Kiba and three other dogs next to Hana. Naruto smiled as he sat next to Kiba.
"Hey Naruto, how are you?" Kiba asked him. Naruto smiled as he sat at the table.
"I am good Kiba. I got a lot of training done today," Naruto said to him. Kiba nodded with a smile as Naruto turned to the girl across the table.
"Hello I am Naruto Uzumaki, who are you?" Naruto asked her with a bit of politeness in his voice. Hana smiled as she took in his features.
"Hello Naruto. My name is Hana Inuzuka. Kiba told me about today. I personally want to say-," Hana said as she walked over and placed her hands on his shoulders and cried.
"-thank you for putting that Uchiha in his place. I have never meet anyone more egotistical than that. The stupid villagers inflating his pride doesn't help either. So I just have to say thank you," Hana said to him. Naruto nodded slightly with a blush as he heard her words.
"All in a day's work Hana-chan, I am more than happy to do it. Though for some reason I can tell that he is going to try something else that will make me want to put him in his place again," Naruto said to her. Hana nodded as she returned to her seat with a big smile. Tsume soon came into the room as she saw the both of her children smiling.
"They seem quite taken to him so far. It seems that he is quite the mood maker," Tsume said to herself as she served the food. Soon Kasumi came into the room as Kiba and Hana looked at her. Kasumi smiled as she knelt near Naruto's feet. Kiba and Hana looked at Naruto with their mouths dropped as they turned to their mother. Tsume noticed their stares and nodded.
"Yeah, it got me also. I couldn't believe it either," Tsume said to them. Both turned to see Naruto patting her head and scratching her ears. Hana remembered when she tried, but Kasumi growled at her. Even Kiba had trouble with her, but here was Naruto acting like he knew her his whole life.
"Wow Naruto. You did what no other Inuzuka clan member could do. I am impressed," Hana said to him. Naruto blushed with a slight thank you. Kiba nodded in agreement with his sister as everyone was given their food.
"Alright everyone let's eat," Tsume said to them. Everyone nodded as they ate the food that Tsume prepared for them. Tsume cooked some steak with white rice and vegetables. Everyone enjoyed the meal as they talked about the regular things in life. Everyone had a good time as they enjoyed Naruto's company. Naruto told them about his interests and his hobbies. He also told them about his dreams and ambitions. Both Kiba and Hana enjoyed his company very much throughout the dinner. Naruto even, with the permission of Tsume, told Kiba and Hana about Kyuubi and the attack on Konoha and how she was sealed in him. He decided to place his trust in someone other than Kyuubi and Sarutobi. Kiba and Hana were shocked at the news. Both couldn't hate Naruto for his life nor for the burden that he was made to carry. They in fact sympathized with him. Tsume gave constant growls over how he was treated throughout his life by the villagers.
"So the attack on Konoha wasn't intentional on Kyuubi's part, but it she was controlled?" Hana asked him. Naruto nodded as he finished telling them everything.
"Wow Naruto. I can't imagine such a life. I feel for you man, but I will be your friend and anyone who tries to say otherwise will meet my fist," Kiba said with a smile. Naruto chuckled with a thank you from Kiba as he received a nod from Hana and Tsume.
"If anything, I can't accept how this place treated you. They are trampling all over Yondaime's wish simply because they can't look past their hatred. Makes me sick," Tsume said which caused the other three to nod.
"It isn't so bad though. I got to meet Tsume-chan, Kiba, and Hana-chan along with Kasumi-chan," Naruto said as he got whacked on the leg by Kasumi's tail showing she was happy. Tsume slightly blushed at his appreciation for just meeting them. Hana smiled along with Kiba at his declaration.
"You are more than welcome to come here anytime you like Naruto," Tsume said to him. Naruto nodded with a smile as he helped them wash the dishes. Tsume smiled at his generosity as she assessed his qualities and features.
"The boy is kind, and strong. He has a clear goal in mind and he looks out for others. He doesn't take things for granted and appreciates people just being there for him. He is quite the young man. I really want to see what the future holds in store for him," Tsume thought as she found herself smiling a lot more with Naruto around.
Soon all the dishes were washed and everyone had some light dessert. Naruto enjoyed his time with the Inuzukas as he soon got up to leave.
"Well it is time for me to go. I will see you at the academy tomorrow Kiba," Naruto said to him. Kiba nodded with a smile as he saw Naruto get up.
"Alright Naruto, see you tomorrow," Kiba said to him. Hana said her goodbyes as Naruto turned around, but Tsume stopped him.
"You should come train with us sometime Naruto," Tsume said to him. Naruto chuckled with a nod as he soon was about to leave, but was stopped by a tug on his pants. Naruto turned to see Kasumi whimper at the sight of him leaving. Naruto knelt down and scratched her ears with a sad smile.
"I will come tomorrow Kasumi-chan, I promise," Naruto said to her. Kasumi growled lowly as she felt her ears get scratched. Unknown to him, Tsume, Hana, and Kiba watched the action and smiled. Tsume turned to her children and smiled when both nodded at her. Tsume chuckled as she made her presence known to Naruto.
"You know Naruto, Inuzuka law dictates that a dog belongs to the person who names them. Seeing as how Kasumi likes you and you named her, you are rightfully her owner and companion," Tsume said to him. Naruto looked up in shock at her words.
"R-really?" Naruto said to her. Tsume nodded with a smile.
"That's right Naruto. Kasumi is yours. Grow up with her to be a good person and companion. I look forward to seeing you two together," Tsume said to him. Naruto and Kasumi smiled as she wrapped her body around Naruto's legs. Naruto chuckled as he gave Kasumi a hug. Tsume chuckled at the sight.
"Just let me know if you need any help with her. Never handle it alone if you don't now. Here is a list of her required food and supplies," Tsume said to him as she gave him the list. Naruto happily took the note as he read down the list. Naruto nodded.
"Thank you Tsume-chan. I promise to take good care of Kasumi-chan. Bye Kiba, Bye Hana-chan, see you tomorrow," Naruto said as he and Kasumi turned to leave. Kiba and Hana waved goodbye.
"And goodbye Tsume-chan," Naruto said to her. Tsume chuckled as she slightly blushed at the constant affectionate way he said her name.
"Goodbye Naruto-kun," Tsume said not realizing her words. Naruto nodded as he picked up Kasumi and put her in his shirt. Kasumi's head slowly poked out from his shirt with a smile. Naruto waved goodbye as he took to the roof and headed back to his apartment with a big smile on his face for the fun night he had.
With Tsume, Kiba, and Hana
Tsume closed the door to the house as she turned around. Tsume chuckled from the night they all had with Naruto. As everyone headed upstairs to go to bed. Kiba turned to Tsume and Hana.
"He is great company isn't he?" Kiba said to them. Both girls nodded as he headed upstairs with Akamaru. Hana turned to her mother with a smile as she looked at her.
"Kaa-san in your goodbye I think I heard you say the words 'Naruto-kun'. Did I hear that right?" Hana asked her mother. Tsume blushed and stuttered at her daughter's accusation.
"I don't know what you are talking about Hana," Tsume said as she tried to deny the accusation. Hana smiled as she knew her hearing never failed her.
"Then why is your face red Kaa-san?" Hana asked her. Tsume growled slightly at her daughter which caused Hana to chuckle.
"Shouldn't you be going to bed now Hana?" Tsume asked playing her final trump card. Hana chuckled at her mother's embarrassed face, but nodded.
"Alright goodnight Kaa-san and have a 'good' night," Hana said as she ran upstairs. Tsume stuttered again as she was left on the staircase.
"She is never going to let me live this down," Tsume thought as a smile soon graced her face.
"You are a mystery Naruto...kun," Tsume said with her smile as she walked upstairs as she was ready to go to bed.
End of Chapter 3
KG: And that's a wrap.
Naruto: Who so now I have a new friend.
KG: Aren't you happy that I can set you up with friends?
Naruto: Yeah, thank you I guess. So Tsume-chan, you seemed to be blushing a lot today.
Tsume: Don't get ahead of yourself Naruto. I don't blush a lot so you are quite lucky.
Naruto: I feel real lucky right now.
KG: And there's another one.
Tsume: S-shut up KG. Naruto you are such a smooth talker.
Naruto: Only with you Tsume-chan. Only with you. Let me take you out tonight.
Tsume: Alright I have nothing to do. (Both Leave)
KG: Umm...okay then. Well see you tomorrow people.
