Long Distance


Ninja were encouraged to suppress their emotions. Romance was not encouraged, though it was inevitable with the younger ones, and so for the most part it was ignored.

Romance with ninja from different countries was not ignored. A long-distance relationship with another ninja was frowned upon; it earned scorn and harsh looks from others in one's village. A ninja never knew when allies would change and a country would become an enemy; this sort of romance was a liability.

Temari and Shikamaru were smart ninja. They knew this as well as anybody else.

They also knew how to keep secrets.
