Iruka came around last night... and I did what needed to be done. For my mental health, for my sanity, and because I doubt that he really, in his heart of hearts, wants to be in a relationship. Because if he did, he wouldn't have been going around trying to fuck every guy who crossed his path. It's incredible the things he accused me of... but you know... the way things were going, and I'm glad I was able to think things out for myself in the time we spent apart... that he would never be happy in the relationship, no matter what I did, or said. Actually, the arguement sounded like a sick parody of a playground confrontation. You know, one person accuses the other of something, and the other says, "No, you're..." and repeats it back to them.
I think that Iruka will never really mature... he's too stuck in his own past, not wanting to let things go. He prefers to stay in the comfort of early teenage years, not wanting to listen to authority. You'd think that he would even view me, one of the Legendary Three, as someone who might have a bit more life experience... but no, apparently I am just another person. Well, this way he can have his marriage and his kids, the things he kept telling me that he would never have, and... I don't know what kind of guilt trips he has laid on me... I know I'm sick of it.
The main thing I realized from the discussion last night is that Iruka is probably the most immature person in Konoha. I think that Naruto displays more sensibilities, honestly. He is going to one day realize that he can't be a child forever, but who knows when that will be. You'd think he would have learned more life lessons by now... but apparently not.
I need to go for a walk to clear my head. A nice, long walk. Maybe to an onsen. >)
