Summary from Sumie: Unable to bring himself to touch the girl he loves, a boy spends each day with her in agony and joy. He is too afraid to exchange the comforts of friendship for something much more— something possibly much stronger, yet more fragile. Subconsciously, he tries to distance himself, but will that destroy the one thing he wishes to protect?
