I Love Death (Gaara Story)
In Da Story: Sasuke did go find Orchimaru so is curently missing. And Naruto already got back from his long 3 year training with Pervy Sage
Why I Named This Story I Love Death:
Gaara's name means "Demon who cares for himself" and the tattoo on Gaara's forehead means "love", which combined with his name means, "I Love Death." Since he only feels alive when he kills, he believes that killing is his reason for being. lol, thats how it WAS anyway. Not anymore.
Mission! Gaara of the Sand
â€œEri!â€ I look behind me and see Sakura running to me.
â€œYeah?â€ I say, waiting for her.
â€œLady Tsunade wants you. So I came to escort you.â€
â€œKay.â€ I say, letting her lead me away.
Sakura opens the door for me and I walk in and see Shikamaru, Lady Tsunade, Kiba, and another person standing beside Lady Tsunade. Sakura closes the door, leaving the five of us alone. My eyes look over everyone, and stop on the guy beside Lady Tsunade. He has red hair, green eyes, and the character for love painted on the left side of his forehead.
I stand in front of her desk, me and Shikamaruâ€™s shoulders touching, and Kiba on the other side of me. Lady Tsunade looks at me.
â€œYou have a mission.â€ She says. Shikamaru stiffens and I grab his hand. â€œYou are to escort the Kazekage back to the Sand Village.â€
â€œAre there any th-threats?â€ I ask. Shikamaru squeezes me hand. Lady Tsunade nods and I stiffen.
â€œYou will be accompanied with Kiba.â€ She says.
â€œWhat about Shikamaru?â€ I ask hopefully. She shakes her head.
â€œJust Kiba.â€ I nod. â€œGo get packed and come back here.â€ Lady Tsunade Says. Me and Kiba nod. â€œShikamaru, youâ€™re excused too.â€
Shikamaru, still holding my hand, pulls me out of there, Kiba walking the opposite way.
When weâ€™re almost home, Shikamaru stops and grabs my shoulders.
â€œYouâ€™ll be careful right?â€ He asks. I smile.
â€œDuh.â€ I say.
After Iâ€™m done packing I walk out the door and see Kiba waiting for me.
â€œReady?â€ He asks.
â€œAs ready as Iâ€™m gonna get.â€ I muttur.
We meet the guy weâ€™re supposed to be protecting outside the Hokages building. I nod at him.
â€œIâ€™m Eri Himitsu, 17, Chunin.â€ I say.
â€œIâ€™m Kiba Inuzuka, 16, Chunin.â€ Says Kiba.
â€œIâ€™m Sabaku no Gaara, 17, Kazekage to be.â€ Says Gaara.
â€œEriâ€¦ can I talk to you?â€ Asks Kiba. I nod. We take a few steps away from Gaara. â€œI know what happened to team 11, everyone does, but Shikamaru told me about you always visiting their graves, and the nightmares, and the voices, and that you sometimes get sucked back into the memories.â€
â€œW-we should go.â€ I whisper. I walk back to Gaara, my legs like jelly.
â€œYou alright? Youâ€™re pale.â€ Says Gaara. I snap back to my old self as best as I can.
â€œItâ€™s no big deal.â€ I murmur. Kiba tries to grab my arm, but I take a step away, and Gaara looks at us weird.
â€œLetâ€™s go.â€ I say.
3 Hours Later
â€œWhereâ€™s Akamaru?â€ I reluctantly ask Kiba.
â€œHe hurt his leg so he canâ€™t go on missions for a bit.â€ He says. Gaaraâ€™s walking in front of us, me and Kiba walking side by side.
â€œAbout Team 11â€¦ why-why do you visit their graves all the time.â€ Asks Kiba. I see Gaaraâ€™s head turn towards us slightly.
â€œBecause they were my teammates, we were team 11. They shouldnâ€™t have di-â€œ I stopped, and looked away. â€œIt would probably be safer if one of us were in front of Gaara.â€ I say and quickly walk in front of him. I hear Kiba mumble sure.
A Few Hours Later
â€œletâ€™s stop for the night at the hot springs hotel.â€ I say to Kiba and Gaara. Kiba nods and we check in. We put our stuff down.
â€œWant to go in the hot springs Gaara?â€ Asks Kiba.
â€œNo.â€ Gaara says. Kiba looks at me and I nod. He smiles and leaves, off to the hot springs. I sigh and look through the rooms in case of any threats. I walk back into the same room as Gaara.
â€œItâ€™s clear.â€ I tell him.
â€œThanks.â€ Says Gaara.
â€œNo problem.â€ I say. I sit on the floor with my back against the wall, facing Gaara. I close my eyes.
â€œVictory is always possible for the person who never refuses to stop fighting.â€
My eyes fly open and I lean forward, breathing hard. Gaara stands, looking at me.
â€œEri?â€ He asks. I take another breath and look up at him.
â€œYeah?â€ I ask. A drop of water hits my arm, and I feel my face. Tears? Oh no! I think. I quickly stand up and smile. â€œSorry, I fell asleep, I should have been watching.â€ I say, backing up. â€œIâ€™ll go check the rooms again.â€ I say quickly walking into another room.
â€œO-ok.â€ I hear Gaara say.
I slowly walk through the rooms taking my time, but still listening in case. I feel sick.. I return to Gaara. He opens his mouth but thereâ€™s a noise outside. I slowly creep by the door. It opens and someone stumbles in. I quickly pull out a kunai and get behind the person, pressing the kunai to their neck.
â€œEri, itâ€™s me.â€ Says Kiba. I quickly let go and mutter a sorry. I put my kunai knife back in my pocket. And step away from behind him. Kiba turns around smiling, then frowns.
â€œYou look sick.â€ He says. His eyes get wide. â€œDid you have the dream?â€ He asks loudly. I look at Gaara and heâ€™s watching me. I look back at Kiba and frown at him.
â€œIt doesnâ€™t matter.â€ I say walking away. Kiba grabs my wrist.
â€œEri.â€ He warns. I sigh.
â€œYeah, I did.â€ I say.
â€œAre you alright.â€ He asks. I smile my fake smile.
â€œ100 percent.â€ I say, and walk away.
