White Rose of the Desert (Gaara/OC)
*Rewrite of Gaara's Rose*
Hikari no Maeme is the sole surviving heiress to the Hikari Clan, but due to her timid nature and inability to speak in front of people, her chances of taking her father's place as leader are slim at best. Already her cousin is being groomed to take her place, and when he does, she'll either be pushed down to the branch families, or she'll be exiled altogether.
But Maeme never really cared about her place in the clan. She never wanted to be leader, never wanted to be powerful or to be acknowledged. That was her sister, not her.
So when the young Kazekage of Suna offers her the chance at a new life, Maeme takes his hand and never looks back.
