Plot Summary: Nakoruru is a miko, a sort of fighting priestess who is forbidden to marry, and the only one in her village. She tries to make her way back to her village from a terrible battle, with a horrible bleeding wound on her back when she collapses. Luckily, she is saved by her two childhood friends. One of them, Yantamu, is very determined to protect Nakoruru and it seems he is motivated by more than just friendship. But Nakoruru's position as miko is not the only thing that keeps them apart; nightmares of the battle keep her awake at night but most of all, her best friend seems to feel more than friendship towards Yantamu.
