Buffalo Springfield — For What It's Worth

"Gaara? What's wrong?"

The leaf nin sat down beside the other man, his eyes concerned.
The Kazekage stared out into the vast desert that his home overlooked.

"The council wants a war."

Lee's eyes grew wide.

"With Konoha?" A war between the countries would be terrible.

Gaara shook his head and Lee let out a silent breath of relief.

"No. With Kusa. But I don't want it."

Lee tilted his head, a silent request for explanation. His lover obliged.

"I hate wars."

[A/N: I've always pictured Post-Naruto Fight Gaara to be something of a pacifist. I think he'd be the type to avoid unnecessary conflict, avoid risking his men unless absolutely necessary.]
