Naruto and The Mink
Naruto x Minerva Mink
The populous of Moongrove forest were going about their usual routine. This society took residence deep within the confines of a society of intelligent anthropomorphic beings. It was the older generations of said beings, that the modern and even some of old school toons, as they were called were based on when it came to illustrations and animation in human society.
Like in the past, ever since both species encountered each other, there were tension among them. The same barrier of tension that plagues the races or those of different religion, except this was more profound. The difference of being a different species altogether was far more difficult to withstand then different beliefs. As such there were does who stood strong by their prejudice, preventing tensions between the human populous and the human like animals from declining. Among the forest was an assortment of all matter of species.
Wolves that were cunning fierce and territorial. There were also the laid back frogs that enjoyed the cool and murky depths of the ponds and the birds who were the master of the skies. Though there were an assortment of creatures that were inextinguishable from humans. One of those creatures were the forest foxes who migrated to the forest quite recently.
While the foxes weren't as big as predators as Panthers or Snakes, they were still quite feared among the inhabitants. After all, some species had to eat other animals to survive.
Though the inhabitants of Moongrove Forest were more lively then usual. Mating Season would be occurring soon and as a result everyone was in a tizzy to find a partner. One such creature was Naruto of the Kyuubi clan. He was an anomaly, being loud instead of quiet like most kitsune. He was also rather confrontational and athletic for his species, though that probably was a result of him not being all around cunning in nearly all matters of life like most of his species.
He was a tall creature with flame-orange fur covering his back, arms, legs, and a portion of his head, white fur from his belly up to his mouth and cheeks. He also had a black, narrow snout, long, pointy black ears, forearms, and calves and he had bright blue eyes. His tail was covered with orange fur ending with a portion that had black fur with a small white tip.
He was on the eve of adulthood and he had one goal. Naruto Uzumaki of the Kyuubi clan liked proving himself the best. What other way then to do the impossible and conqueror the unconquerable? He was going to prove to Sasuke and the other guys that he could nab the most beautiful creature in the forest, Minerva Mink.
Minerva Mink was an anthropomorphic mink, white fur covered her body from head to toe, her eyes were black and sparkling, and she had blond hair, and a blond tail. Rumors and praises of goddess-like beauty showered or spread about the mink. Naruto had seen her a few times himself and he agreed that some of the rumors were indeed accurate, but the reactions of most of his fellow males were quite exaggerated.
Though what attracted Naruto to Minerva wasn't her beauty, but her playfulness and cunning. How she always manage to outsmart whoever was after her, even pranking and tricking many great hunters had resulted in Naruto becoming quite smitten with her. The way she outwitted hunters left and right was like poetry in motion.
Speaking of which, the fox's thoughts were interrupted by a howl and flying body go soaring overheard. It was most likely that hunting dog Newt. Some animals just didn't know when to give up. Naruto came to a stop as he spotted his destination on the other side of the house. It was a massive log home, similar to Slappy Squirrel's house. Naruto trailed along the water to take notice of the door. He was jarred out of his thoughts by the sound of singing.
It's not pretty being me.
Do, Do, Do, Da, Da, la, la, dee, le, dee.

He got closer and notice she was a rock, writing something. Indeed she was as he last remember her. Though she as wearing that little red dress of hers. No, she was wearing a shoulder-less light blue top and violet skirt.
''Dear diary, another lonely day is coming to a close and I have as of yet found that special someone.'' she spoke as she wrote down the entry, stopping to undo her hair wrap and left her fluffy long hair to flutter a bit. ''It seems so very unfair that I don't have someone to share life's tender moments someone warm and kind,'' a tear dripped down her right eye, tugging at Naruto's heart strings. The minx promptly wiped it away with one of her dainty fingers. ''...with very rich parents.'' Naruto rose an eye in disbelief. So much for the pure of heart rumor. Looks like even Minerva herself had serious flaws. Which was going to make this not only easier, but showed him that perfection didn't exist after all. With a sigh she finished her entry. ''Oh well. Tomorrow's another day. Minerva Mink.''
Naruto shook his head, trying to calm his beating heart. He unintentionally let out a loud exhale gaining her attention.
Minerva got off the rock, walked towards the lake and peered around. "Hello? Is anyone there?" she spoke in a soft voice.
''Sorry, I didn't mean to disturb you,'' Naruto called out as he walked out into view. ''I'm Naruto Uzumaki of the Kyuubi clan." he introduced himself. He watched as she shifted slightly, automatically preparing for any attempts to harm her person.
''Hello, I don't think I've seen you around here before. Are you lost?'' From what Minerva knew the Kitsune kept to themselves. They also didn't get along too well with canines who spent a great deal of time in the forest.
''No, I actually came to speak with you.''
An unsatisfied frown formed on her face. The look of her eyes gave away that she had an idea on why the blond was here. ''I'm sure you're a nice guy, not interested in looking for a mate, sorry you had to waste your time coming down here, but I'm simply not interested.'' it was like this every mating season. Even creatures who were in a different class of species hampered her come this time.
''Wait, hold on,'' he appeared next to her side in almost an instant. The way Minerva recoiled he noticed he startled her. ''I'm not like the others.''
''I've heard that all of the time.'' she responded with disinterest.
''Well I want to show you that I'm not. That I'm not just trying to bed you,'' he added.
''Really, you got my attention,'' Minerva remarked. Sensually making her way to Naruto with a swing of her hips. Her ample chest dangerously brushed against him as she was gave him an intense, sultry look.
Naruto felt himself getting a bit light headed and gulped. He was not going to be like the rest of those horny perverts. ''You're right in assuming I have an interest in you, but I want to get to know you. So I propose you give me three months to win your interest.''
The fact that was when mating season began didn't escape Minerva's interest. ''And how do you plan on doing that?''
''Because I'm sure you wouldn't mind a mating whose cunning, strong, romantic.''
''And how do you intend on doing that?''
''To prove my cunning I'll do what everyone else has failed to do and capture you. I'll prove my strength by defeating the strongest creature in this providence, and once a week I like to take you out and woo you. Not in any particular order of course.''
Minerva had to stifle an unladylike snort at that. No one, not even the self proclaimed top his class Newt could catch her. The fact that he told her he planned on capturing her wasn't very cunning of the kitsune either. Two, did he really plan on challenging that old turtle's student? He had to be insane and the most laughable was the fact he thought he could woo her? Her? Minerva Mink. Although the fox wasn't that bad looking, but he wasn't no hunk. He could have been a lot worse looking and if he wanted to pay to take her out, who was she to complain?
''I have a few conditions. When you take me out, no cheap burger joints of anything. I'm a lady and I expect to be treated as such.''
''Okay,'' Naruto nodded.
''Second of all I get to choose what days we go out, because after all I'm a busy lady.'' she mentally added. 'Not exactly a lie. Last thing I need is for hunters to ruin the outing.'
''Alright, anything else?'' he asked.
''Nothing that comes to mind. Now if you excuse me I have to go take a shower. So I'll meet you after tomorrow at say seven?'' she asked as Naruto nodded. She used her tail to brush along Naruto's chin causing him to flush red all over and nearly stumble backwards as he was on his way to prepare for the first of the twelve dates. She repressed the urge to giggle, seeing she still had an effect on the fox. For a moment she was beginning to think she lost her touch. 'At the very least this'll shake things up a bit.' she thought, having grown bored at how monotonous things had become.
