re:Happiness | Cell Phone Novel
「 Can you teach me how to be happy? 」
Fujiwara Ao has been living the past eighteen years of his life in ease. Being the son of the head of a powerful business conglomerate and gifted with both mind and looks, that's what most people presume. In their eyes, he was simply nothing more but a rich, self-centered and egotistic brat born with the perfect background.
What they don't know, however, is that Ao has been abandoned.
Deaf in one ear while suffering from a personal tragedy that until now continues to haunt him, he was shunned by his family and left on his own. Ever since then, he learns to separate himself from the others. As each day passes in a monotonous cycle, Ao finds no more warmth nor color to his world.
Then one day, a college classmate named Hashimoto Rie enters his life. Stubborn, eccentric and enigmatic, Rie pulls Ao to her side and urges him to see through an invisible kaleidoscope that alters his perception of the world entirely.
And like that, everything changes.
But... change doesn't necessarily mean that it's always for the best.
