After living ten years abroad in Australia Yousuke Akimoto and his family return to Japan where he continues his studies to becoming a doctor. Although Hiroshima natives, the family relocated to Tokyo for the convenience of having relatives within close proximity, not being born with the luxury of a large extended family; the most prominent family related to the Akimoto's being the Kikuchi's.
Suzuka Nakamoto, after catching wind of Yousuke's return, brushed off the empty words as nothing more than rumors. However, when it's confirmed that he had returned, flashbacks of their intertwined childhoods came flooding back into her mind; some more personal than others. A once timid soul who never gathered the courage to confess her feelings to Yousuke before his departure, one can only imagine how much internal conflict she has with herself now that a second chance has been granted in her favor. Unfortunately for her many internal and external obstacles stand between her and the individual she admires more than a best friend.
Will he favor a familiar face in Suzuka and come to reciprocate the feelings she has had for him since childhood? Or will he choose to be in the arms of a new lover whom he can create new memories and a bright future with?
