Yes. Everyone I get close to is doomed to a painful demise. I have no reason to live anymore. I only wait until my time comes, and try to make the most of it by caring for those I do cherish. For their sakes, I must protect them from a distance.

Naruto put his hand up to his cheek where Inos was a second before. The stinging sensation was still there. He just stood there looking at her, shocked. He still couldnt believe that she did that.
You make me sick. She said with a disgusted look. Grow up, and face your problems like a proper Shinobi. If you werent my friend I would rip that Hita Itai right off of your head. She left him alone to think about what she said.
