You put the doll away and started to jump to the top of a building. You were trying to see why in the world was that bird thing flying high above Suna for. Then you heard explosions. You looked behind you to see one of the lookouts fall down. You ran to him. There was blood and the stench of burnt flesh. Your eyes widen and look back up at the bird. There was a man with long blond hair in a black coat with a red cloud pattern on it.
“Oh no!” you shouted as you realize that it was an Akatsuki member.
You started to run to where Gaara was currently at, only to stop when you saw sand going after the bird. You frowned.
“Please get him..” you prayed.
The bird dodged some, but the sand grabbed on to one of the cloak guy’s arms. Something exploded and the guy’s arm was gone. You smiled ’till you saw him through something to the ground. It floated in mid-air and then grew. You were terrified by this point.
“If that explodes,” you said, “the village will be gone.”
Then a large amount of sand started to cover the village in an attempt to protect it. You smiled.
“Gaara…” you said.
The huge clay then went off. Nothing happened to the village. The sand then slowly went back to the desert outside. Your eyes widen when you saw Gaara fall when he dropped the sand down. You ran to try to get to him in time only to see the Akatsuki member fly over and catch him.
“No!” you shouted.
You started to follow the bird to the village entrance. You were being pulled back by Baki.
“Let me go!” you shouted.
“No!” Baki said, “we’ll send a party after him soon, just calm down!”
You fall to the ground in tears. You pounded the ground in frustration.
“Damn it!” you shouted.
Baki looked around.
“Where is Kankuro?” he asked.
You looked out to the desert.
Please bring him back… You thought, Please!
Days passed and Kankuro was brought back. He was poisoned and dying. Chiyo and Ebizo were brought to the hospital to look at him. They couldn’t do anything for him. You frowned, but then smiled a bit. A suggestion of bringing Tsunade, Hokage of Konoha, was said. Of coarse Chiyo refuse that such an action wasn’t needed, but they did it anyway. Now you waited at the gate for her. You frowned a bit when you saw three different ninjas from Konoha instead of Lady Tsunade.
“Where is Lady Tsunade?” you asked them.
The pink haired one bowed.
“She is not coming,” she answered, “but I am her student and can perform almost as well as her.”
You nodded. You didn’t really believe her.
“Please follow me then,” you said.
You lead them to Kankuro. The pink hair ninja, Sakura as she introduced her self as went straight to work on him. Chiyo looked at Kakashi and then started to prepare an attack, Her husband stopped her and informed her that Kakashi wasn’t this “White Fang”, whatever that was. You just facepalmed at her. Naruto and Kakashi sat outside the room as Sakura worked on Kankuro. You came up to them with a tray. There were two cups of tea on it. You bowed and hand out the tray. Kakashi nodded.
“Thank you,” he said.
Naruto took his.
“Yeah thanks,” he said, “um…”
“Gala Walker,” you introduce your self.
“Ah right,” said Naruto, “and I’m-”
“Naruto Uzumaki,” you said, “Gaara talks about you a lot.”
“He does?” he asked.
“You and he share the same hard life,” you said, “that is why you two are so connected.”
“You seem to know a lot about Gaara,” stated Kakashi.
“I was the one that didn’t run away when he was little,” you said, “I tried my best to be a good friend to him, but it was hard. My parents always pulled me away from him.”
Naruto frowned a little.
“But you at least tried…” he said.
“To me, you and he should not be feared,” you said, “you should be honored as heroes. You two, after all, have sacrificed a normal carefree life to protect us from Shukaku and Kyuubi.”
Their eyes widen. No one was supposed to know about Kyuubi that was outside their village.
“How-” Kakashi started.
“That’s my little secret,” you said with a wink, “don’t worry. I haven’t told anyone.”
Kakashi smiled. You looked at Naruto, He smiled and then blushed when you bowed to him.
“So thank you for protecting us,” you said.
“Y-You’re welcome,” he said.
You then walked away from the two.
“Remarkable isn’t she?” asked Temari, “It surprises me that she and Gaara aren’t together.”
“He would be one lucky man to have her,” commented Kakashi, “because it’s rare to find someone like that.”
Naruto nodded in agreement. You sighed as you sat the tray down on the table. You looked out a window.
I really wish they would let me go out and find him… you thought.
You blinked a few times and then looked around to see if anyone was nearby. You were alone. You jumped out the window and onto the roof of a smaller building. You looked around. No one was watching you. You head to the village entrance and then out of it.
Don’t worry Gaara, you thought, Gala, is coming to save you!
