Chizuru loves Yuudai; Yuudai loves Chizuru Yet, neither of them can say it clearly because, not only are they both uncertain about the other’s feelings but, a mutual fear of hurt stemming from failed relationships in their pasts continues a pattern of misunderstandings So trapped by their insecurities that their relationship is going nowhere, they drift further and further apart While Chizuru thinks this is the end of the road, Yuudai struggles desperately to overcome his cowardly nature before he loses what is most important to him There are two sides to every story, every relationship; but can love survive if both sides can’t meet halfway!
