Garara's father and the other Edo kages are still trapped in the sand. The skin is slowly flaking away from Garaa's dads face.
Gaara's Dad: 'I loved your mother, Gaara. i never wanted her to meet her son again as a monster. I'm glad that she still lives...inside of you'.
Gaara's father slowly flakes away and disappears into nothing.
The old Raikage: 'Well that's one down at least, now hurry up with the rest of us before we break free!'.
Kabuto looks to his game board in shock.
kabuto:'...well that's a surprise, i suppose he wasn't the cold blooded killer i imagined him to be'. He makes a new seal with his hands ' I suppose i shouldn't make the same mistake with the others, they'll just have to make do without their minds!'
Scene Changes back:
Tsuchikage: Stay alert Kazekage, they've suddenly stopped talking. Based on the intel we've received from Kakashi's team this does not bode well. We'll not get any help from them now'.
Gaara: ' I know'. Pictures his mum and dad smiling.
The sand below erupts as you see the Edo Kage's free and fully charged up.
Gaara: 'Tsuchikage, please stand back. I will end this now.'
Tsuchikage: '!!!. Don't be a fool kazekage, do you not see who we are facing down there. We'll be lucky to take them out as we are. We need to work together!'
Gaara: 'I was made a Jinchurriki at an early age...'
Tsuchikage: 'This doesn't look good, it seems his father really did anumber on him. We can't retreat, reinforcements are too far away...i might just have to...'
Gaara: 'From the moment i was made a jinchurikki i was thought of as a monster. i was hated and feared by my village, i was all alone even when i had siblings. No one could understand who I was, no one could see who i was apart from the beast inside me and all they remembered was the monster i was and WOULD become.'
Tsuchikage: 'Things are different now Kazekage, you have earned their love and respect with your determination and you need to protect them now!'
Gaara holds out both his arms, palms open facing up to the sky; 'but they forgot who i was before i was a jinchurriki...'.
Gaara pictures both his parents once again smiling at him; 'before that, i was the son of a kage!!!
Everywhere below the ground rumbles and then explodes as hundreds of Shikaku hands burst out from the ground and rise 100 feet into the air.
The hands explode and suddenly the whole battlefield is encircled in a blinding sandstorm.
Gaara: Tsuchikage! I need you to fly out of this storm, i can't control what i'm about to do next.'
the tsuchikage stares at gaara for a second before shooting of upwards and out of the storm. From the outside he can view nothing within, it's like they're trapped within a bubble of moving sand.
The bubble suddenly bulges as if it has imploded and the sand suddenly shoots to the ground.
the storm has stopped but the battlefield is in a cloud of dust obliterating the Tsuchikage's view.
He floats lower looking for any signs to what has happened and spots gaara still on his floating sand. He is on both his hands and knees.
The Tsuchikage flys to him, gaara seems to be exhausted but fine.
He looks over the clearing ground below and sees that not even inch of ground is viewable. the whole field is pierced with extremely long and exceedingly thin sand needles covering it like a carpet.
He looks for signs of the edo's and sees where parts of the carpet rises in bumps pointing out their locations.
Tsuchikage: 'Kazekage! what was that?! how is that even possible?! no matter that there was no space or room to avoid those needles but those are previous Kage's down there. they should have been able to deflect them easily?!' Gaara is still looking down panting; ' I've had the shikaku within me all my life, and all my life most of my strength has gone into controlling him to the extent that even sleep was deprived from me. But i don't have to worry about the shukaku anymore, all of my chakra is my own and all of it is in those needles. There is nothing that they cannot pierce, my chakra and wind affinity enhances their cutting power and paralysis those bodies down there.
This is my absolute attack tsuchikage'
Gaara raises his head and looks at the tsuchikage with a smile; 'you are not the only one who has surpassed the previous generation...old man!!'
