Toshiro Okumori is a second-year high school boy who struggles to empathize with others because of his traumatic past. Because of that, he refuses to socialize and form relationships with others. He has a cynical and depressive viewpoint of the world, and is under the mindset of failure and disappointment. Yet, a girl who is the complete opposite of him, Youko Miyake, decides to befriend the social recluse in hopes of helping him view the world in a different light.

Will the two learn each other's secrets and improve each other's mental state? Or is it just a hopeless future?

**CHAPTERS REVISED AS OF NOW: 5/21**

I'm very sorry for the lack of updates and consistency with the chapters. To be honest, I haven't been feeling too good these past few weeks, so demotivation struck me like a truck. I wish I could edit a chapter each day, but with my current state, it's a little impossible. I'll be editing when I can and trying my best to earn that spark of motivation once more, but I'm not sure if I'll l be consistent like before as of now.

Again, I'm really sorry, but I hope not to disappoint any of you in the future. Thank you.

-Hiroaki
