Plot Summary: Aoi Sakuraba, heir to the massive Sakuraba fortune, leaves home to find her childhood crush Kaoru Hanabishi, a struggling college student in Tokyo. Kaoru has seperated himself from his harsh and unloving, but well connected family, and thinks Aoi has been sent to bring him home. Her goal is only to marry the man she believes Kaoru has grown into from the boy who was so kind to her as a child. As they spend time together Kaoru realizes Aoi cares deeply for him and starts to return her feelings, but her guardian and his wild friends make getting to know each other difficult. Her guardian, the strict Miyabi, has been instructed by Aoi's family to keep Aoi and Kaoru from getting too close since it is Aoi's duty to marry well and continue the Sakuraba legacy.
