So…it's been a few months. So much for next week right? Another short snippet. I hope you guys enjoy it.

I do not own Naruto

101 Negotiations

"If I am here against my will why do I have to pay rent?" Kyuubi asked raising a big, furry eyebrow.

"Huh, I hadn't thought of it like that." Naruto blinked.

The Huge-Giant-Fox-Of-Doom (Trademarked by Kiba) rolled his eyes.

The jailer and jailee proceeded to work out an arrangement arguing back and forth over the terms. Naruto was a pretty good haggler and apparently awesome at negotiating.

They managed to work out a deal. Naruto would find a way for the Kyuubi to be free from his jailer for short amounts of time (with power restrictions) and Kyuubi would donate chakra whenever Naruto needed it.

They even added in a clause that the agreement would be reviewed once a year and changes made where appropriate.

Kiba had no idea where they had gotten the paper and ink from.

Naruto managed to do all of this while cradling an unconscious Hinata in his arms.

The incredulity he was feeling overruled his terror of the Giant-Fox-Of-Impending Doom (Trademarked by Kiba). Kiba sat on the floor and just gave in because apparently this was really happening.

Naruto reached forward to sign the agreement when he spotted some fine print on the bottom.

"Hey, what's this?!" Hinata stirred in Naruto's arms and her eyes fluttered open.

"An offspring clause. It's just a reminder to discuss it next year." Kyuubi shrugged.

"Offspring clause?" Naruto asked confused.

"I'm going to need you and the Hyuuga to spawn a kid before you die."

Naruto's eyebrows furrowed and then shrugged.

"Okay." Naruto signed the document.

Hinata eyes slid shut. No one had been aware that she had even woken up in the first place.

"Now, get out. Someone is approaching quickly."

AN: So…you all know what happens next! Mizuki gets a beat down…but from who?!
