Haru can fall in love as soon as the touch of a hand- the hand he's been holding for almost eight years now. Falling into the hopeless abyss we call love is hard, but so is loving the one who you would never think you had a chance with. I DO NOT OWN FREE! IWATOBI SWIM CLUB OR ANY OF THE CHARACTERS.
