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 brings 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?

Kurui Naku no wa Boku no Ban

Keisuke Takaba is an Alpha who has just transferred to a new job serving under the cunning sales director, Miyabi Karasuma. Takaba is disturbed to learn that Karasuma brazenly uses the discrimination he faces as an Omega to his advantage by using sex to climb the corporate ladder, while his helpless Beta subordinate Utou cares for him when the strain on his body becomes too much. Describing his first experience walking in on one of his new boss's orgies as "a portrait of hell", Takaba despises watching the man let himself be used in such a degrading manner. But when Karasuma begins making advances toward him, Takaba finds both his body and his heart reacting to the erotic man, respecting his strength and tenacity in spite of his loose morals. As his desire to make Karasuma his and his alone grows stronger, Takaba finds his resolve slowly weakening... How long before his determination to keep his superior at a professional distance fails utterly?
