And speaking of which...while wandering around that same night I left my parent's home, I came across Asuma drunk and stumbling around. I know drunks, (my father being one) and Asuma's drinking habits were not unfamiliar to me, but his reaction upon seeing me threw me off a bit.
Asuma claims that he's not a 'relationship' sort of guy, but I get the feeling that he had really let himself go once I inexplicably disappeared.
Shit, I really need to sit down with him and explain. But not in his apartment, it stinks like deer piss from all the booze >_
