Hatsumi Narita lives in an apartment complex owned by the self-righteous and tyrannical Mrs. Tachibana, the wife of the housing company's vice president. If you are unlucky enough get on her bad side, or are even just a victim of rumors, your whole family is doomed to suffer! So when Hatsumi is caught buying a pregnancy test for her sister by Ryouki - the son of the Tachibana family who also used to bully Hatsumi when she was a child - she is naturally worried. Ryouki then attempts to blackmail Hatsumi and, fearing for the reputation of her family, she agrees to become his slave.
