Singing Sand (Gaara x Reader) Part 4

Note: I don’t remember the episodes with Gaara’s death in it, so I’m improvising, I could go and re-watch them, but I don’t have the time to do so.


You have traveled through the desert for what seemed like days. Your determination to save Gaara kept you going even if the heat didn’t want you to.

I should have brought more water, you thought.

You continued going straight till you spotted something or someone. You got down to the ground and looked. It was a person that was hunched over.

He has the same coat as the guy who took Gaara, you thought.

“Hey!” you shouted.

The hunched man turned to see you in the air with a fist ready to hit him. Some sort of tail came out of his cloak and swot you away. You landed on your stomach. You looked up at the hunched man and glared. You got back up.

“Where did you guys take Gaara?” you asked.

‘That Jinchuriki is dead,” the hunched man said, “you should give up on him.”

You growled. You made a few hand signs and slammed your hands down on the ground. The ground shook, and then it cracked open right toward the hunched man. He jumped, and the tail came out and swotted at you again. You ended up hitting your head on a rock. The Hunched man landed.

“What a nuisance,” he commented.

You struggled to look at him. You were between consciousness and unconsciousness.

“W…wait…” you struggled to say.

The hunched man didn’t seem to hear you. You managed to get back up on your feet. You slowly followed him.


Sakura checked Kankuro to make sure that all of the poison was gone.

“You seem to be fine now,” she said, “but I would still rest for a day or two.”

“But-” started Kankuro.

Sakura held up her hand.

“We will find Gaara and bring him back,” she said.

Just then Temari came in. She looked around.

“Has Gala come in here at any point?” she asked.

Sakura and Kankuro shook their head.

“That’s not good,” said Temari, “she might have gone after Gaara.”

“Oh no,” said Kankuro with widened eyes, “those guys are strong. She wouldn’t stand a chance against them.”

Temari had a worried look.

“We’ll try to find her as well,” said Sakura.

Hopefully, we won’t be too late for the both of them, she thought.


You staggered as you continued to follow the hunched man. He led you to a cave of some sort. You slowly went in. You saw Gaara there laying on the floor motionless. You semi ran to him without noticing the hunched man and the blonde one who took Gaara away. You noticed that Gaara wasn’t breathing nor was there a pulse. You started to tear up.

No, you thought, no. No…

You Started to sob. The blonde man got ready to attack.

“There is no need Deidara,” said the hunched man, “she is demoralized therefore she no longer a threat.”

Deidara sighed and stood down.

“Whatever you say Sasori, my man,” he said.

You lay at Gaara’s side and placed your head on his chest. You started to hum a song your mom once sang to you.


There was nothing, but darkness surrounding Gaara. There was, also, nothing but silence. It was pretty lonely in this darkness. Suddenly there was humming.

Where is that coming from? Wondered Gaara.

He listened to it for a bit longer.

Gala? Gaara asked.

Suddenly there was a light shining far away from him. Gaara felt someone grab his hand. When he looked, he saw you. But the both of you were children. You continued to hum as you lead him deeper into the light. Gaara could make out silhouettes of other people. They were small but got bigger the closer you two got. You suddenly stopped moving and humming. You started to sob.

Gala? Gaara asked, why are you crying?

Please don’t leave me, you answered.

I’m right he- Gaara started.

The light started to fade away, and Gaara started moving away from you.

I’m sorry, you said.

Gaara reached out to you as you started to fall backward.

Gala! He shouted.

Gaara tried to run to you.

I love you, you said before fading away along with the light.

Gala! Gaara shouted once more only to be greeted with the silence the darkness brought.


You had fallen into unconsciousness. Deidara shook his head.

“I don’t see why she wasted her time on him hm,” he said.

“That doesn’t matter,” said Sasori, “we have other things to do.”

Deidara sighed once more.

“Yeah yeah,” he said.

They left you and Gaara right where you were.

Singing Sand (Gaara x Reader) Part 3

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.”

Naruto blushed.

“He does?” he asked.

You nodded.

“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.

You nodded.

“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!

Singing Sand (Gaara x Reader) Part 2

You ran as far as you could before your legs gave out. You hid behind some boxes. When you felt a hand on your shoulder. You turn around to see Kankuro.

“Kankuro,” you said, “How did you find me?”

“I try to contact your radio, but you didn’t answer,” Kankuro answered, “So I went looking for you.”

You looked out from behind the boxes to see where that guy was. He was looking around for you. You looked back at Kankuro.

“We need to knock him out somehow,” you said.

Kankuro grinned.

“Leave that to me,” he said.

He pulled out one of the scrolls he had with him. Out cameKuroari. He controlled it and had it go to the rogue ninja. The guy looked behind him with wide eyes. He jumped out of the way before the doors shut on him. Kankuro gritted his teeth. You did a few hand signs. You slammed your hands down onto the ground.

“Molten Earth!” you yelled.

The earth in front of the ninja started to shake and then crack. Fire shootout. The guy halted and stepped back right into the waiting Kuroari. The doors shut, but Kankuro just brought it back over to him.

“Awesome,” he said, “nicely done Gala.”

You smiled.

“Thank you,” you said.

Kankuro contacted the rest of the team. He told them that they have the ninja and to go home. Once home Kankuro turned in the report to Gaara and got paid. Kankuro split up and gave it to all 6 of you. So now you are walking the streets. You stopped when you got to a familiar spot. You smiled.

“This where I met Gaara,” you said.

You remembered it like it was yesterday:

You were only 5 when you heard a few kids scream. You then saw them run away. You blinked.

“What are they running from?” you wondered.

Then you heard someone crying. You looked around the corner. You saw a 5-year-old Gaara. He hugged his teddy bear close as tears streamed down his face. You frowned. You ran up to him. He looked up to you. You gave him a smile. He blinked.

“Aren’t you going to run away too?” he asked.

“Should I?’ you asked backed, “there’s nothing wrong with you is there?”

Gaara whipped his tears away.

“I’m not too sure,” he said.

You giggled. He looked at with a puzzled expression.

“Silly,” you said, “there always something wrong with everyone. Because no one is perfect.”

Gaara then smiled.

“Hey do you want to play with me?” he asked.

“Sure!” you beamed.

You two left hand in hand.

You then frown at the memory of your parents punishing you for something you didn’t understand back then. You do now though. Gaara had a demon sealed within him. Of course you were known as a rebel so that didn’t change your opinion about him. You reach into one of your packs and you felt a soft fuzzy thing. You smiled and pulled the raccoon dog doll out.

“You look like Gaara…” you commented.

You hugged the doll close to your chest. You then heard a flapping sound. You looked up to the sky to see a large bird made of clay. You squinted. You could have sworn that there was a guy on it’s back as well.

“What in the world is that thing?” you wondered, “and what’s it doing here?”

Singing Sand (Gaara x Reader) Part 1

You were with a team of 6 and Kankuro is the leader of it. You all’s mission is to find and bring back a ran away ninja. Kankuro was telling you all that you’ve had a lead that the ninja was in 3 different villages. Once that was made clear you all split up into pairs to go to the 3 villages. You got paired up with Kankuro. You usually don’t go on missions. You usually just stay by Gaara’s side in his office, making sure he didn’t forget any paperwork, but he told you that this mission needed your fighting abilities. So you agreed to go.

You looked up at Kankuro when he motioned for a halt.

“This is one of the villages,” He said, “I lead and you follow.”

You nodded. When at the village entrance, you and Kankuro agreed to split up to find the ninja but to keep radio contact at all times. So you want on your way toward the market end of the village, while Kankuro went toward the home side. You were just looking around when saw the cutest thing. It was a little stuff raccoon dog.

“Aww,” you said.

“I see this doll has caught your eyes,” said the salesman, “Tell you what been you’re the first person today to stop by my stand I’ll give it to you for free.”

“Really!” you said exactly.

“Here you go,” said the salesman handing it to you.

“Oh thank you so much,” you said taking it, putting it in one of your packs, and walking away.

You turn into an alleyway and was headed to the end of it when something hard hit in the back of your head. You passed out. When you woke up you looked around to see you were on the of some type of abandon building.

“Where am I?” you asked confused.

“You are in my hideout,” answered a voice.

Oh great, you thought, I’ve been captured.

You turned around to see that it was none other then the ran away ninja that you all were looking for.

“Please make your self at home,” he said.

You sighed and sat up. He turned around.

“Oh yeah I took your weapons and communicator,” he said, “So there will no contacting your friends anytime soon.”

Damn it! You thought, um, if only there was a way that I could get away from here and find Kankuro.

You looked around once again and this time noticed an open door to your left.

Perfected! Now to get a head start, you thought.

You stood up and went toward the ninja.

“You know you forgot to do something,” you said.

He turned around.

“Oh and what’s that?” he asked.

You kicked him in the goods, causing him fall to the floor holding them in pain.

“You forgot to tie me up,” you said then quickly ran out of there.

You ran as fast as you could out of there. You looked back to see him slowly get up.

I did to find a hiding spot and fast, you thought, Or I’m dead.
