"The Two Jinchuuriki" - Written By: Kiba Inubake

Chapter 1: "Leaving Sunagakure"

This is my first Gaara story, and I think it'll become better than the rest, due to my new style of writing, and it's all thanks to WielderoftheSharingan! I owe you a lot, man...
"Jinchuuriki" meaning "the power of human sacrifice", are those individuals possessing tailed demons within their bodies. The demons themselves are known by the number of tails their body possesses, and each has different characteristics. This is the story of how Gaara, who carried the Ichibi, met Naruto Uzumaki, who carries the Kyuubi.


In Sunagakure, a woman who went by the name Karura had just given birth to a baby boy. Chiyo, an elderly villager, had imbued Shukaku into the Kazekage's unborn son, who was later named Gaara. Karura had died shortly after her son was born, so Gaara had grown up without a mother. He had also grown up without any friends, due to the bijuu inside him. The downside to this was that he could not sleep, or else he would be taken over by Shukaku. However, the upside was that he could control sand and have instant sand protection. It's been said that no one has ever touched Gaara after Shukaku was inside of him.

The only person Gaara had ever trusted was his uncle Yashamaru. Sadly, because Gaara was said to have become too dangerous, it was ordered from the Kazekage, his own father, to have Gaara killed. Yashamaru had taken this job, since he felt angry for his sister Karura's death. Yashamaru had failed, and had also unintentionally been killed by Gaara in the process. After that moment, Gaara had become more mentally unstable than before, and had directed sand to his forehead, carving in the Kanji symbol "ai" meaning "love", forever marking his body.

"Chapter 1: Leaving Sunagakure"

Gaara had one day decided to run away from Sunagakure no sato, in the hopes of starting a new life where people wouldn't spit at his existence. He was protected by the sand, and could double its use as an offensive technique as well. All he took with him was a few bottles filled with water, some money he had taken from his father, some meat he had wrapped up, and his stuffed bear. He had everything he thought he needed, so he left the village late at night when he thought everyone was asleep. However, when he was at the village's gate, he heard a voice. "Where do you think you're going?" Gaara spun around to see his father, who was leaning on a pillar of sand.

"Father..." Gaara started. "I'm leaving, and you can't stop me."

"Do you think I'm going to let you? If you do, then you've got another thing coming!" The Kazekage made several hand signs. "You're not going anywhere!" The sand beneath Gaara softened, and the young boy began to sink.

Gaara screamed in terror. "Aaaaghh! I don't want to die! Get me out of this sand! Aaaaghhh!" He struggled to break away from the sand, but it was of no use. Every movement he made only resulted in him sinking deeper.

"Fool, you thought you could just waltz out of here unnoticed, did you?!" His father shouted. "This is the price you must pay for defying my orders to be our village's ultimate weapon!"

"No! Don't let me die! No!" Gaara screamed at the top of his lungs. Surprisingly, no neighbors were awoken. By now, he was about 8 inches deep in the ground. Gaara had worn himself out from using the last bit of his energy to struggle free. Sadly, he wasn't successful, and now the bijuu inside of him started to take control. Gaara, or should I say the Ichibi, manipulated sand and completely covered the Yondaime Kazekage.

He made a few muffled noises, but was then killed when Shukaku had performed the Sand Burial technique. Blood mixed with sand fell to the ground, and the quicksand had reverted back to normal, freeing Gaara, who was still unconscious. The bijuu thought to himself, "Well, if this kid wants to leave the village, then we'll leave, and kill anyone that gets in our path!" So, Shukaku, who still controlled Gaara's body, ran out of the village at lightning-speed.

The next morning, Gaara had awoken and somehow taken control of his body again. "Ohh, my head... What happened last night?"

"We killed the Kazekage, that's what!" Shukaku had said from inside Gaara.

"Wha-what?! What's going on?! Who said that?!" Gaara wildly started asking questions.

"It's me, your old friend Shukaku! Hah-hah-hah-hah-hah!" The demon replied.

"Where are you?! What do you want?!" Gaara shouted.

"I'm inside you, that's where!" Shukaku answered, followed by another malicious bellow.

"Aaaaaaghhh!" Gaara screamed. He started running around in random directions, thinking that would somehow help.

"Listen, ya little punk! It's you and me from now on, and we're going to kill anyone and everyone!"

"Get out of my head!" Gaara didn't know what to do, so he just kept repeating that same verse.

"We'll be together until you die, kid, and there's nothing you can do about it!" Yet again, another bellow was released.

And this is how Gaara became a killer; by performing Shukaku's demands.
