Temari then accompanied Shikamaru to a hospital in Konoha, where they discussed how a shinobi should approach missions.
She soon discovers that Shikamaru is on a dangerous mission to assassinate the leader of the Land of Silence after he captured a number of high-ranking shinobi, including Sai.
This caused Shikamaru to become embarrassed and look away.
Shikamaru and Temari were assigned to the same division with Shikamaru as Gaara's proxy commander.
She uses her wind jutsu to knock Shikamaru away from Gengo and to break him from the genjutsu.
Seeing Temari ignites something inside of Shikamaru as he realizes that he loves Temari and wants to live to protect her.
