~Chapter 42. Explanations~
Gaara went downstairs and into the room where the daimyō was waiting. The woman the daimyō had fun with was gone, and the ruler was settled in a comfortable armchair, his pose relaxed. He crooked his finger, and Gaara walked closer in silence. The daimyō tapped his fingers against the armrest and snarled quietly, scowling. Gaara watched his master calmly, wordlessly. He knew the man was trying to get him to speak first but Gaara was always the winner in such games. He was yet to meet the person who would endure his stare for longer than a few minutes.
They are afraid of looking into someone else's eyes for too long because it exposes their souls, Gaara thought to himself. And they feel compelled to cover it with a small talk.
"Explain yourself," the daimyō ordered angrily as if reading his bodyguard's mind.

Gaara waited patiently outside of the room just as he had been told. Of course he was aware they must have been talking of him. Otherwise the daimyō wouldn't tell him to stand outside. Gaara was quite certain that Kanryū was trying again to convince the daimyō that the red-headed jinchūriki was rather a poor choice for the bodyguard. Well, let him try. Gaara realized already that the daimyō wasn't going to dismiss him no matter what. After all, Gaara knew very well how to be a perfect bodyguard. This game was much more interesting
