A/N: Writen as part of a daily drabble challenge for the prompt 'Pray'
Gaara closes his eyes and clasps his hands together. It has been years since he last prayed. After everything he has been through it is little wonder he lost his faith in a benevolent being. He still doesn’t know whether or not he believes, but he does know that there is nobody else he can turn to. He loves a man fated to die – Sasuke has been branded an international terrorist and there is no escaping that mark. No amount of pleading with the other Kage will change their minds; Gaara knows that only blood will fill the void left by the loss of so many of their subordinates and friends. All that is left for him now is to appeal to a higher power to save Sasuke’s life.
“Lord, hear my prayer. Save Sasuke Uchiha. Please.”
