Having found a picture of him in Sakura's things, her grandfather asked Hayato if he'd like Sakura's hand in marriage - and he accepted. There's just one problem: Hayato believes that Sakura is on her death bed, and by marrying her, she may recover! Now that her grandfather has mixed Sakura up in this little white lie, she must do the only thing she can - learn how to live with her sensei, and figure out if she's ready to be a bride!

Young girl and an older guy- nothing new there, but what is interesting is both these stories focus on the problems that kind of a relationship can face rather than just the romance they are swept up in.
Hot Cherry and Ai Hime – Ai to Himegoto have the same type of relationship problems faced by a young girl and a much older guy. The stories revolve around how they have to try and solve the discrepancies within their relationships and overcome them.
Sakura (Hot Cherry) is in love with her teacher... not that outrageous on the surface. Hana (After School Wedding) is married to her teacher... a bit more surprising. However, both girls have a secret to keep that if revealed may end any relationship with their respective teachers.
When girls have to keep secrets about their relationships the stories of Hot Cherry and After School Wedding began to form in my head. There is also the aspect of teacher play in each.
