Haruto Sakurano is a lonely boy who has been surviving on his own since his mother abandoned him. Unable to defend himself from sexual assault and constantly discriminated against for being an omega, Haruto begins prostituting himself to save money to move out of town. Then one day he meets a transfer student named Takagi whose calm, non-judgemental nature slowly begins filling the void in his heart. Haruto's fear and self-loathing keep him from expressing the love he feels, but Takagi's gentle care and persistence bring them emotionally - and physically - closer together. Warmth and tenderness begin to replace Haruto's pain and loneliness, but how can Takagi convince him that he truly is worthy of being loved?
