Higure

With the war finally over Naruto finds himself knocking on deaths door after the final battle with Sasuke, but Kurama ways otherwise. With the help of the other eight Bijū, Kurama fuses with Naruto, transforming him into an immortal Kitsune before sending him to the world of Twilight where Alice has been waiting for years to meet her soul mate. Together with his new family, he will learn to adapt to the new world and do what he always does, protect his precious people.

Chapter 3

Two and a half months passed by in a blur for Naruto. For much of those months he would focus much of his time improving his very lacking education. While He would receive help from Edward, Esme, Jasper, and Carlisle when he could Naruto seemed to have the best luck learning from Alice. Alice seemed to know the exact words to use to describe something, and the right methods of teaching Naruto that allowed him to understand everything and retain all the information. While Naruto continued to improve his knowledge, he was also required to attend High School with his siblings, and what a nightmare that was. Naruto would constantly fall asleep in class, and when he actually awake he was unable to follow along with the teacher due to his lack of education. Through the months, Naruto's relations with his "Family" strengthened as he interacted with each one. Esme and Carlisle would treat Naruto as if he was their son, Jasper, Edward, and Emmett acted as older brother who help Naruto whenever he needed it, and Rosalie was starting to open up to Naruto and act like a sister. His relations with Alice were different, he could not think of her as a sister, and the feelings that had started to surface were just as he felt for Sakura, only they stronger. Whatever these feelings were he hoped to get help from someone soon.


Cullen's house

Like every morning, Naruto woke up to find a set of clothes on his deck, courtesy of Alice. While Alice originally freaked out Naruto by coming into his bedroom in the middle not out he began to accept her help, knowing that Alice had thing for fashion. Getting out of bed Naruto go dressed in the black pants, black shoes, and white long-sleeve button up shirt and exited his room, making his way the house to the kitchen where he could smell Esme cooking him breakfast like every morning. Arriving in the dining room, he saw Edward, Jasper, Emmett, and Rosalie sitting at the table. Jasper was reading a book from his own library; Edward was reading the paper, while Emmett and Rosalie were wrapped around each other.

"Morning everyone." Naruto said as he took a seat at the table.

"Morning to you too Naruto." Jasper said pulling himself from his book. Out of all his "Brothers", it seemed he had a bigger connection with Jasper.

"Did you have a successful hunt last night?" Naruto asked.

"Jasper and Alice did, but me and Emmett ran into some campers and had to turn back." Edward said not looking away from the paper.

"You guys going to be alright at school?" Naruto worried. He knew it was not safe for Jasper to go without feeding but he was not sure about his other brothers.

"Don't worry about us little fox; we can handle the smell of humans better than Jazz." Emmett said with a laugh.

"I still don't like you guys going into town without feeding first." Esme said as she brought a large plate of eggs, bacon, and toast in and set it in front of Naruto.

"Thank you Esme, Itadakimasu!" Naruto said before he began to eat, with as much manners as he could. He found out the hard way that you never anger Esme.

"You know I thought I saw a den of Foxed close by. They may not be completely filling but they'll be better than nothing." Emmett said.

"NO! Don't touch those foxes!" Naruto shouted.

"Whoa, calm down Naruto, what's the big deal?" Emmett asked.

"What's the big deal? The big deal is I am a fox too you idiot! You hunting them would be like you hunting me." Naruto said. 'Plus foxes were killed on sight because of Kurama; I will not allow something like that to happen here.' Naruto thought.

"He does have a point." Jasper said.

"I agree with him, I think it would be better if we leave foxes alone, and if we find any fox trap we should destroy them." Edward said.

"Ok, no fox hunting, and we save the foxes from trappers, got it. And sorry about what I said Naruto." Emmett said. Naruto just waved it away, happy that foxes would be save and went back to eating, but was interrupted when a pair of cold pale hands covered his eyes.

"Alright Alice I know it's you." Naruto said as he lifted the hands off his eyes.

"Boo, you always know it's me." Alice said as she took her seat next to Naruto, moving her seat closer to the blonde-haired Kitsune.

"That's because you're the only one who does that to him Alice." Rosalie said.

"Hey, get a load of this. Says here that Forks Police chief Charlie Swan's daughter Isabella Swan is returning to Forks to live with her father." Jasper said, having grabbed the paper from Edward.

"Is Forks really that small that something like that makes the news?" Naruto asked.

"Yeah, it's why we chose the area. The smaller the population, the easier time we have not having to worry about blood lust. Fewer humans mean fewer temptations." Carlisle said walking into the room, giving Esme a kiss on the cheek.

"Sound advice I guess." Naruto said.

"You better hurry and finish you breakfast if you're going to make it to school on time." Esme said. Looking at the clock, everyone realized that it was almost time to leave. Sure, the Cullen's could care less about getting a high school education, again, but they knew that it was something Naruto needed. Eating the rest of his food as fast as possible Naruto created a Kage Bunshin that took the dishes to the kitchen to be cleaned as he went back to his room, grabbed his field bag that Alice had bought, performed the transformation jutsu, and ran to the garage. In the garage, Naruto jumped into Edwards Volvo next to Alice as Emmett and Rosalie drove out in Rosalie's red Mercedes convertible. Once in the car Edward put in in drive and followed Rosalie out of the garage.


Forks High School (Lunch Time)

Isabella (Bella) Swan was anything but happy. But could you blame her? After moving from sunny Phoenix, Arizona to rainy Folks, Washington to live with her father so her mother could travel with her stepfather, who was a miner-league baseball player, and starting a new school in the middle of the semester. Luckily, she would not have to sit alone at lunch. A girl from her Spanish and trigonometry class walked with her to lunch and invited her to sit at a table with several of the girl's friends. It was there, at that very table, that Bella saw them, sitting in the corner of the cafeteria, as far away from the other students as possible. There were six of them, none of them were talking, and only one was eating the food from the others trays and they did nothing to stop him. Unlike the other students, these six were not gawking at Bella, so she was safe to stare without being caught. None of them looked alike, of the four boys; one was big – muscled like a serious weight lifter with dark, curly hair. Another was taller, leaner, but still muscular, and honey-blond hair. The third has lanky, less bulky, with untidy, bronze hair. The last, and shortest, was muscular like the others, with a rounded face, blond and red spiky hair, and three whisker marks on each of his cheeks. The two girls were opposites. The tall one was statuesque, with a beautiful figure, the kind that you saw on a swimsuit model; her hair was golden, gently waving to the middle of her back. The short girl was pixy-like, thin in the extreme, with small features; her hair was deep black, shopped shirt and pointed out in every direction.

Yet they were alike, except the short boy. Every one of them was chalky pale, the palest of all the students living in the sunless town while the short one was lightly tanned. They had very dark eyes despite the range in hair tones, while the red-blond had deep blue eyes. Except for that same blond, they all had shadows under their eyes, purplish bruise like shadows, as if they all suffered from insomnia. However, all this was not why Bella could not look away.

"Who are they?" Bella asked the girl from Spanish, whose name she still couldn't remember. As she looked up to see where Bella meant, though she already knew whom she meant.

"That's Edward, Emmett, and Alice Cullen, Rosalie and Jasper Hall, and Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze. They all live with Dr. Cullen and his wife." She said. Bella looked back in time to see the beautiful boy slap away the blue-eyed boys hand before picking a bagel to pieces with long, pale fingers.

'Strange names, almost the kind of grandparents had. And Naruto sound Asian.' Bella thought.

"They are… very nice looking." Bella said, struggling with the conspicuous understatement.

"Yes!" the girl, Jessica as Bella finally remembered, said with a giggle, "But they're all together though – Emmett and Rosalie I mean. I do not know the true story between Naruto and Alice, everyone thought Alice and Jasper were together but when Naruto showed up a few months ago that was thrown out the window. And they all live together." Bella noticed that her voice held all the shock and condemnation of a small town.

"Which ones are the Cullen's, they don't look related?" Bella asked.

"Oh they're not. Dr. Cullen is young, in his mid-twenties or early thirties. They are all adopted. The Hales are brother and sister, twins – the blonds – while Naruto is the blond with red highlights. They're all foster children."

"They look too old to be foster children."

"They are now, Jasper and Rosalie have both eighteen, but they've been with Mrs. Cullen since they were eight, she's their aunt or something like that. And Naruto is a mystery." Jessica said.

"That's kind of nice – for them to take care of all those kids like that, when they're so young and everything."

"I guess so," Jessica admitted reluctantly

"Have they always lived in Forks?" Bella asked.

"No," Jessica answered in a voice that made it sound like it should be obvious. "They moved down here two years ago from somewhere in Alaska, and Naruto just moved in from somewhere in Japan this January." Bella felt a surge of pity and relief. Pity because as beautiful as they were, they were outsider, clearly not accepted. Relief that I was not the only newcomer here and certainly not the most interesting by the least. As Bella examined them, the youngest of the Cullen's, looked up and met her gaze, with evident curiosity in his expression. Bella swiftly looking away.

"Which on is the boy with reddish brown hair?" Bella asked. She peeked at him from the corner of her eye, and he was still looking at her, but not gawking like the other students – he had a slightly frustrated expression.

"That's Edward. He is gorgeous, of course, but do not waste your time. He does not date. Apparently none of the girls here are good-looking enough for him." She sniffed. A clear sign that Edward had turned her down. On the other side of the room, Edward was frustrated, and Jasper could notice it.

"What's got you like this?" Jasper asked.

"I… I'm having problems reading someone's mind." Edward said, causing everyone at the table to turn to him.

"Has that ever happen before?" Naruto asked.

"No, never." Alice told Naruto.

"So who's this person?" Emmett asked.

"Isabella Swan."

"The chiefs daughter? What's so special about her that's blocking your mind reading?" Rosalie asked.

"I'm not sure. I can read everyone else's mind, even those further away than her clear, but when I try to read hers… nothing, unlike when Naruto learned to block me out with that image of a dancing pervert on a frog."
"Toad, they get angry when you call them frogs." Naruto said as he finished his meal. At that moment the bell rang and everyone stood up and threw what was left on their trays before putting the trays away before they all broke off for their next class, Emmett and Rosalie going off for Government, Jasper, Alice and Naruto off to English, and Edward to Biology. Once in class Edward made his way to his seat, near the window. He did not pay much attention to the students that walked by, wanting to do as little with them as possible especially today. That was Mike Newton walked in with her, and introduced her to Mr. Banner. As she walked by a fan that Mr. Banner had on Edward caught her scent, and it caused him to go rigid. Never in his 88 years as a vampire had he smelled a human so intoxicating, and tempting. Edward watched as Mr. Banner gave Bella a textbook and sent her to sit next to him. Now that she was close Edward starting to wish he had feed today, so he moved his chair as close to the window as possible and leaned away from her, and stopped breathing as often, just enough to limit the amount of her scent but not to blow his cover. All throughout Mr. Banners lecture Edward did everything he could to get his mind of the scent that Bella produced: Digging his nails into his hand, biting the inside of his mouth, even thinking about the White haired Pervert from Naruto's block. Eventually the bell rang and Edward quick collected his things and left the classroom, in a hurry to get away from her. During his last class he had no problems, and made a quick dash to the front office after school to get his class changed, unfortunately there were no openings. He heard the door open as he argued but paid no heed to it, until the door opened again, letting a small breeze in and carried her scent to his nose again, causing him to go rigid.

"Never mind than," Edward said in a voice that Bella found attractive, "I can see that it's impossible. Thanks you very much for your help." Edward said before turning on his heels and left the office, not bothering to look at her, and walked towards the forest. In the parking lot Jasper, Alice, and Naruto were standing around the locked Volvo wait for Edward, who had the keys, when Alice gained a far off look.

"Alice are you alight?" Naruto asked, wondering what was wrong with her.

"What is it Alice? What do you see?" Jasper asked in a low voice.

"Wait you mean she's having a vision?" Naruto asked.

"Yes, this usually happens when they come unexpected." Jasper told him.

"It's Edward; he's left the campus and is running home." Alice said her eyes back in focus.

"So Edward left you here to find your own way home?" Emmett said as he walked up with Rosalie.

"Yeah, I'm not sure what caused it but he's the one with the keys and without them we can't get in the car. Sure we could break the door but that would draw too much attention." Alice said.

"And the spare keys are back at home." Jasper said.

"Do you want to get a ride to the house and have Esme drive you back?" Rosalie asked.

"I have a faster idea." Naruto said, gaining their attention. "What if I go into the forest and use the Hiraishin to get to the house, grab the keys and Hiraishin back."

"Hiraishin? What the hell are you talking about?" Rosalie asked.

"It's a jutsu my father created, perfected, and specialized in. Using seals Dad could move over great distances with speeds faster than ever Edward could run. I once read a story that he had took out a large army single-handedly with it." Naruto said.

"Wow, seems like some old man." Emmett said.

"I guess I never got to meet him since he sealed Kurama in me." Naruto said losing the smile that was usually on his face.

"I think it would be a good idea." Jasper said, trying to change the subject from Naruto's family.

"And defiantly better that waiting till everyone left to rip the door open." Alice added, worried about Naruto.

"Alright give me a few minutes." Naruto said before running into the forest. Once he was deep, enough he placed a special Kunai on the ground, for his return trip. He knew that his father could put the seals on people and objects, but he was not that far advanced, since we worked on the jutsu by him. He felt like it was cheating to use Kage Bunshins to work on is fathers Jutsu. Focusing his Chakra, Naruto felt the pull from the Kunai in his room and teleported into the center of his room, below the Kunai that was embedded in the roof. Exiting his room, Naruto when down stairs into the living room to find Esme in her seat, reading.

"N-Naruto! How did you get here, and where are the others?" Esme asked.

"Alice got a vision that Edward had left the school with the keys to his Volvo, so I used a Technique my father created to teleport to my room, and get the spare keys." Naruto said.

"That would explain why Edward arrived alone. The keys should be in the garage, on the key hook near the door." Esme said. 'Edward beat me here? I guess he had a bigger head start than I thought.'

"Thanks," Naruto said running to the garage, grabbing the keys that looked like the ones Edward had, and used Hiraishin to appear back in the forest. Jumping from tree to tree Naruto got to the edge of the forest, and jumped down to the floor and ran to where Alice and Jasper were still waiting for him. "Hey, sorry if I kept you waiting." Naruto said tossing Alice the keys.

"Not too long, Rosalie and Emmett left only a minute ago." Jasper responded as Alice unlocked the Volvo. Seeing as Alice was driving Jasper let Naruto ride shotgun. It did not take long to get back to the house, were they all walked in to see Esme, Edward, Carlisle, Rosalie, and Emmett in the living room.

"Oh, good you made it back. When Edward arrived without you all I began to worry until Esme told me Naruto had arrived using one of his father's Techniques." Carlisle said.

"Sorry about that, but I had to get away from the school, and her scent as fast as possible." Edward said.

"Who's scent?" Alice asked.

"The chief's daughter. Apparently she's in Edwards Biology class, and her scent is affecting him worse than any human we've ever met." Emmett said.

"Didn't I tell you I didn't like you going to school without eating? I just knew something like this was going to happen." Esme said.

"Do you think her scent affecting you has anything to do with your inability to read her mind?" Naruto asked.

"We don't know. We've never ran into someone who Edward couldn't read." Carlisle said.

"All of this is too strange: First a Kitsune appears in a ray of light from a separate Dimension, than Edward can't read the chief's daughter's mind, and now her scent is affecting Edward more than it should." Rosalie said.

"Strange as it may be we are going to need to pull together as a family and help both Edwards and Naruto." Carlisle said.

"What do you have in mind?" Jasper asked.

"Edward has chosen to go to the Denali Coven, up in Alaska, get away from Forks for a while." Carlisle said.

"I'm sorry, but I think it would be best if I went a way for a while, and let my head clear." Edward said as he stood up and made his way to the back door.

"Wait Edward…" Alice and Naruto shouted at the same time but it was too late, he was already on the run.

"Does that idiot really think that something like this will go away if he just runs away?" Naruto asked.

"That's the think about Edward." Jasper said.

"He knows what everyone's thinking, but we never know what he's thinking." Rosalie finished. For a while, it was quiet, until Alice stoke up.

"What about Naruto?" Alice asked.

"Yeah, I know I'm still having problems with school, but what else to I need help with?" Naruto asked.

"Well, you see I recently received a package from my old Kitsune friend. In it were a scroll and a letter explaining that he would be unable to help you for a few months, due to an issue with a Japanese Vampire Coven. He sends his apologies and wishes you to use the scroll to start training yourself in controlling your transformation." Carlisle said.

"What's wrong with my transformation? The Henge has been working fine for the past few months." Naruto said, only for his Transformation to give out on him.

"It's not permanent, you idiot." Rosalie exclaimed, as Naruto's ears drooped and Alice patted his back as Emmett and Jasper chuckled at Naruto.

"I'm surprised that hasn't at school yet." Esme said.

"Actually it has. One of Naruto's ears reappeared during lunch, and to hide it Alice pulled Naruto between her…" Jasper started, only for Alice to interrupt him.

"Alright, he gets it!" Alice shouted in embarrassment, and she was not alone. Next to her Naruto was as red as a tomato as he remembered that day. Just as Jasper had said during lunch one of Naruto's ears had become visible, and in order to hide the ear while Naruto reapplied the Henge on him Alice has pulled Naruto's head and face between her breasts. Now while both would openly deny it, they each enjoyed the feeling each experience.

"What's wrong little Alice? I thought you enjoyed having Naruto between your breasts?" Emmett teased. Alice, at that time, became enraged and would have attacked Emmett out of embarrassment, if it were not for three of Naruto's tails wrapping around her waist and arms, holding her in place.

"Naruto let me go so I can… show my brother just what's wrong." Alice said turning to the blond, who was giving her the trademark nice guy pose

"No, I'll take care of the idiot." Naruto said unwrapping his tails from around Alice, much to her disappointment, and began to stalk towards Emmett.

"Oh yeah? And who says you have the skill to take on all this?" Emmett asked, taking a body-builders pose, showing off his muscles.

"I do." Naruto said appearing behind Emmett, pressing a kunai against his neck, even though he knew it was useless against their hard skin.

"Alright you two, that's enough. This is not the time for us to be fighting." Esme said.

"Actually Esme, I think it might be a good idea to let Naruto spare with Emmett, Jasper, and Edward when he returns. We still don't know what Naruto's fully capable of." Carlisle said.

"Not even I know anymore. My fusion with Kurama could have changed more than just my physical appearance." Naruto said pulling the kunai away from Emmett.

"That's why once Edward returns we'll have Naruto spare against all three of his brothers. But for now it will be best if you continue to focus on your school work, and study the scroll in your free time." Carlisle said handing Naruto said scroll.

"Thank you Carlisle." Naruto said as he took the Scroll. He was about to open the scroll when Alice grabbed him by the hand.

"Come on Naruto, it's time to work on homework." Alice said pulling him upstairs. She could care less about doing homework; she just wanted to be able to spend as much time with Naruto. The more time they spent together, the stronger the feelings each felt became. The rest of the day went off like normal. Esme cooked dinner while Alice, Jasper, and for once Rosalie helped Naruto and his Kage Bunshins. After diner, Naruto continued to study with Alice, before he dispersed his Kage Bunshins, and passed out from over mental stress. Alice giggled when that happened, carried Naruto to his bed where she tucked him in, and took the bold move of kissing Naruto on the forehead, resulting in a true smile on Naruto's face, before she left his room, and went to her own, where she began to work on a secret project all night long.
