It has been three years since the fourth great ninja war ended, three years since Kakashi became Hokage and began training Naruto; three years since Sasuke left...we still haven't heard any word from him. Part of me thinks that he isn't coming back. Even though he said he'd see me soon, it's been too long. He told me he needed to see the world for himself, all the things he overlooked. Sasuke never told us when he would return, so I decided to finally stop counting the days and the weeks, and the months after the first year passed. There wasn't any point in waiting on a man who might not even come back, who might not even care.
