All it leads to is betrayal and heartbreak, and she's well enough on her own.
But everything changes when she accidentally roundhouse kicks the most popular boy in school!
She skips school, has a blunt manner, doesn't have female friends, and seems the sort to be promiscuous.
However, she is friendly to Hikari, and even stands up to the people who make fun of him.
When Mao reluctantly accepts his invitation, she is surprised at how easy it is to settle in with her longtime friend.
Now she must deal not only with mending her relationship with her father and helping the oldest Nakamura brother attain his goal, but also her growing feelings for Hiro.
(Source: MU)After her mother abandoned her and her father remarried, high schooler Mao Motomiya is left feeling like she doesn't have a place where she belongs.
One night, her childhood friend Hiro Nakamura finds her in a shrine eating cheap convenience store food and offers to take her to a restaurant.
Included one-shot: Volume 13: Snap Beads Makoto is suddenly confessed to by her narcissistic childhood friend Kikuchi Reita.
Not even just any confession, he stands in the street and publicly says "If you want a boyfriend that badly, I don't mind going out with you." Which was obviously a no, since Makoto has never considered Reita to be a man, especially a man of interest.
In order to support her family (her younger brother and her hospitalized mother), she works as a popular author!
But she doesn't write just any books, she pens erotic novels!
He won't take no for an answer, and soon Mei and Yamato embark on an unwanted friendship that will change both of them forever.
