With the fighting done, Hakuto calms herself down from the ordeal by treating Gaara's injury. Gaara has little fondness for the alcohol, but he is nevertheless glad for the brief time he gets to spend with his brother and sister. His Shield of Sand is accordingly pierced, so Gaara reinforces the shield with his Magnet Release , allowing him to move close to Shigezane and hold him at his mercy. He had been the familiar face who saved Temari during the attack on Gaara's marriage meeting. Temari is to be married to Shikamaru of Konohagakure 's Nara clan ; their relationship surprised Gaara when he first learned of it and, despite his research , he still doesn't really understand it. Both Gaara and Baki find this suspicious and increase the security for the event in case somebody is planning something. Gaara is to meet his possible future wife at a formal gathering of the Land of Wind's various dignitaries.

Temari is mystified that the conversation, despite being so casual, is going so well. Those who live in Suna and were around when he was a child still remember his former violent ways whenever they meet him, colouring their opinions of him. Temari collapses immediately afterwards, her body starting to experience the after-effects of her dislocated shoulder. At that moment Shikamaru Nara appears, his help having been requested in the letter earlier given to Temari. Suspecting there are others waiting for him outside the door to the room, Gaara and Hakuto exit through the window. Gaara is to meet his possible future wife at a formal gathering of the Land of Wind's various dignitaries.
