On the outskirts of the [[Sunagakure]], the [[shinobi]] prepared to detonate the surrounding area, whilst elsewhere the elders were already making plans for a new [[Kazekage]]. When the meeting had just finished, someone rushed in and told them that [[Kankurō]] had been found. [[Sasori]] catches up to [[Deidara]] and the two were ready to make off with their [[Gaara|target]]. After they were done with Deidara's target, Sasori had planned to go after his, even though he still had no idea where his target was. Kankurō is later found and brought back to Suna's hospital. While his wounds weren't serious, the main problem was the [[poison]] in his body and that no-one in the Suna knew how to negate it. En route to the Sunagakure, [[Team Kakashi]] spotted [[Temari]], who joined them upon hearing what had happened to [[Gaara]]. During their journey to the Suna, [[Naruto]] thought back to when [[Itachi]] and [[Kisame]] had approached him to capture him for [[Akatsuki]]'s purposes: extracting the power of the [[Nine-Tailed Demon Fox]] within Naruto and using it for their own personal gain. Naruto picked up the pace, despite the others saying that they should stick together. He realised that the reason Akatsuki was after him and Gaara was because they only saw them as monsters due to the beasts within them. Naruto realised just how similar he and Gaara really were, and why they were only looked at as beasts. With tears of anger in his eyes, Naruto pressed on. Kankurō's condition had worsened, and his body was in such a weak condition that he could barely speak. Despite this, he was able to tell [[Baki]] about Sasori. Baki went to an information centre and told the two shinobi inside to inform the pursuit squad to retreat, while he went off to speak to [[Honoured Siblings|"them"]]. Baki approached and informed the two of Gaara's capture by Akatsuki and [[Kankurō]]'s condition, but they were not particularly interested as there was not much the two of them could do in their state. As far as they were concerned, what happened was not their business, even though it would do [[Chiyo]] good to see her grandson, Sasori, again.
When the meeting in [[Sunagakure]] concluded, someone rushes in and tells them what happened to [[Kankurō]]. [[Sasori]] catches up to [[Deidara]] and the two were ready to make off with their [[Gaara|target]]. Kankurō is later found and brought back to Suna's hospital. The [[poison]] spreads in his body and that no one in the Suna knows how to extract it. En route to the Sunagakure, [[Team Kakashi]] spot [[Temari]], who joins them upon hearing what happened to [[Gaara]]. While travelling, Naruto weeps about the situation Gaara is in. Kankurō's condition worsens, and his body is in such a weak condition that he could barely speak. Despite this, he is able to tell [[Baki]] about Sasori. Baki approaches and informs the [[Honoured Siblings|two]] about Gaara's capture by [[Akatsuki]] and [[Kankurō]]'s condition. Despite displaying disinterest, [[Chiyo]] still wants to see her grandson, [[Sasori]], one more time.
