Baki tells Kankurō and Temari that they are supposed to watch over their brother Gaara. Kankurō and Temari go to Gaara's room and are surprised to find him missing. Naruto has been asleep for three days, and the Chūnin Exams finals are the next day. Shikamaru gives Naruto a fruit basket originally intended for Chōji, who has been hospitalised for indigestion, having eaten too much. Sakura goes to Lee's room and replaces the flower. As Chōji complains of his hunger, Ino walks in with a fruit basket for him. Gaara enters Lee's room and attempts to kill Lee while he is unconscious, but Naruto and Shikamaru immediately stop him. Incapacitated by Shikamaru's Shadow Imitation Technique, Gaara divulges a little bit about his past, revealing that he has a sand demon named Shukaku sealed within him from birth. Naruto sympathises, as he also has a demon within him. Gaara attempts to kill the two of them, but Guy steps in and demands Gaara to leave at once. Gaara has no choice but to do so, but before doing it, he promises that he'll kill them all.
