And Sand Becomes Glass
by Tsuki Yuuki

With time, heat, and pressure, coal becomes diamonds.

He'd learned that years ago, and remembered it after the Chuunin exam. He'd wondered if it was true, and had asked Temari. Still adjusting to him not being utterly vicious and homicidal, she'd looked at him strangely, then confirmed it was true.

Something so ugly and cheap turning into something so pretty and valuable was amazing.

Coal becomes diamonds. He wasn't coal, he'd told Temari.

No, she'd said, he wasn't. He was sand.

And sand? He'd asked. What about sand?

Coal becomes diamonds, she'd replied, and sand...

...Sand becomes glass.

Gaara smiled.
