Sakura noticed that Gaara kept looking back at her as they walked through the hall. As if to make sure she was still there. Sakura knew she had seen him befor, not just from her dreams or lessons, but when she was dancing in the opera house.
"In sleep he sang to me, in dreams he came." Sakura started to sing, somehow his presence made her singing voice escape her lips without her knowing. She continued. "That voice wich calls to me, and speaks my name. And do I dream agian for now I find," That's when she relized who he was...
"The Phantom of the Opera is there, inside my mind!"
Gaara looked at her as she sang those last words. He didn't look mad, but almost glad that Sakura had figured it out.
No point in this beautiful voice singing alone is there? Gaara thought. So he began to sing as well.
"Sing once agian with me, our strange duet. My power over you, grows stronger yet. And though you turn from me, to glance behinde, the Phantom of the Opera is there, inside your mind."
They came to a boat at the end of the tunnels.
Sakura got into the boat. I can't believe I'm here! She thought. I never thought the legands where true!
She knew the mysterious ghost that haunted the opera had two names. He was first called The Phantom of the Opera, but once, the old directors found a stage hand strangled and covered in sand. So The Phantom of the Sand also became a name for the ghost.
As Sakura looked at the man in the boat, she did not believe he was a real ghost. No, this person with her now, the one who had taught her how to use her voice, was very much alive.
But, what about the rest of the legands? Was he the one who killed innocent stage hands? Could this man really control sand? So many people where afraid of him. Should Sakura fear him too?
"Those who have seen your face, draw back in fear." Sakura sang her worry.
As she did, she also noticed how her eyes where drawn to his mask. What was he hiding?
"I am the mask you wear." Sakura finished.
"It's me they hear." Gaara joined.
"Our spirit and our vioce in one combined, The Phantom of the Opera is there, inside my mind!" They sang together.
"Sing my angel." Gaara told Sakura.
Sakura began to let out her soul. She sang as she never sang befor. How could this man be evil? Sakura thought.
"Sing for me!" Gaara said. Almost comanding her vioce.
I will sing for him, Sakura thought, for no matter what he is, he is my Angel of Music.
Then the boat stoped.
