Artic Fox

Prologue

"Talking"

'Thinking'

'Demon/Boss Summon'

3rd person

"P-please, kill m-me," a young girl with dark hair and eyes to match, "I-i'm useless to Z-zabuza n-now."

"There's more to being a shinobi then killing someone when they're 'useless'."

She smiles sweetly at the blonde boy and her eyes glazed over as if remembering or reminiscing about something and then she says.

"If we met under different circumstances we might have been friends."

"Yeah, we probably would have been," he replies. He grabs a kunai from the pouch on his right thigh. 'I can't kill you Haku, I won't I just have to hit you in the side of the head.'

"YOU DIE HERE!"

"Sorry Naruto," the girl said to the blonde catching his arm as he is about to strike, "I guess I still have a little bit more of a use."

The girl disappears from the stunned blonde and he runs toward where she disappeared only to see his teacher with his hand through the girl's chest. He feels tears go down his face and he freezes in place.

"Wow, she really was a good thing to pick up that day, she was really loyal," he said as he hefted his zanbato to cut the two in half, but the young yet silver-haired teacher managed to get him and the girl out of range. The blonde ran towards the bloodied form of his teacher and friend with worry for the young girl written on his face.

"HAKU!"

"Kakashi-sensei will she be okay?" The blonde ran towards the bloodied form of his teacher and friend with worry for the young girl written on his face. The worry only increases when he doesn't respond instead the older man looks away from the slightly hysterical preteen with a glare directed at their opponent. He was the girl's adoptive father a S-rank threat called the 'Demon of the Mist'. He was formerly a jounin of Kirigakure but after staging an assassination on the Mizukage he and the girl traveled around trying to avoid the hunter nin's sent after them. His name is Zabuza Momoichi.

The teacher of the blonde boy grabbed a kunai and charged in to the mist, but his student held on to his friend and set her down gently. Her blood was already pooling underneath her as he grabbed her hand which was getting colder by the second.

'You want to save her kit?'

'You can save her?' he thought 'DO IT!'

'Alright, alright, but there are some side effects'

'Like?'

'She's gonna have to become your mate'

'That's fine'

'Alright, you also have to tear off a piece of the seal.'

'Why?'

'Because otherwise I won't have enough power to help her'

'Alright' the child tears part of the seal off 'now what?'

'Now cut your hand and place it on her wound, and then channel both our chakras into the wound'

The boy starts to do what the demon says having a little trouble molding and controlling the demon's chakra. The more he puts into the girl the more his body starts to burn, but the boy holds in any noise of pain even as it becomes unbearable. After she is healed he foggily notes a change in the color of her hair as it had lightened to a light brown instead of her natural dark brown.

'Kyubbi, what did you do?'

'Just a little remodeling, so that you weren't as weak'

'Damn you, Kyubbi.'

The boy fell unconscious just as Gato fell off the bridge due to the girl's adoptive father forcing him off. He then asked his former enemy to take him to his adopted daughter only to find her alive with the once blond child now a red head by her side.

"Ka… Kakashi… please… take Haku… with you… and… give… the idiot…my sword… as… a… thank you… for sa… saving…his dau… daughter…from… her…failure… of… a…dad."

"Of course, Zabuza."

The former villain now smiled at his former enemy before drawing his last breathe, and the 'Demon of the Mist' was no more. The silver haired man then looks for his two other students knowing that one of them is safe. The mist starts to recede and he sees his lone female student clinging to his other darker haired male student. She was crying and the man thought.

'I couldn't have failed again.'

"Get off… Sakura you're heavy," the 'corpse' said and his female student cried out in joy. Everyone was okay and the gray haired man prayed to every deity he knew of for thanks.

Well this is my adopted fic Artic Fox, thank you Kurama Kuchiki for allowing me to adopt this

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds.
