    Summary

    Changbin was getting sick of his monotonous life. He runs his family's flower shop day in and day out. Nothing ever changes in his small town and he was starting to believe that he would really be trapped in this cycle of sameness until the day he - mercifully - died.

    When a strange shop pops up across the street, Changbin finds himself curious - curious about the type of people who would paint their store front a deep, dark plum, and who would try to open a tattoo and piercing parlor on the Main Street of a small, nothing-ever-happens town.

    Meeting the employees of the tattoo shop would change his life, but nothing could have prepared him for the impact that the pretty, freckled tattoo artist would have on him.

    Summary

    Owning a flower shop and being a large carnivore can be quite difficult at times. When animals go out to buy such goods and enter a store expecting a calm and cozy atmosphere, they aren’t expecting a large carnivorous wolf behind the counter smiling at them. This causes a multitude of situations that can make the wolf frustrated from having a personality that doesn’t match his appearance in the slightest.

    The wolf just wanted to combine his favorite interests to make a living, who would stop such a lovable creature as Legosi?

    Dealing with prejudiced animals combined with confusing feelings towards his best friend for so many years makes his life turn in such a way he’d never expect.

    Summary

    He didn’t think the cutesy flower shop owner would be…hot. She’s dressed like a soccer mom with her pale pink floral (of course) blouse on, but that doesn’t hide all that body. And the ugly shirt can’t distract from her soft waves of hair and her face, her delicate features, and smooth skin and pink lips and–

    Shit, he’s staring ain’t he?

    He thinks he missed something she said.

    “Huh?” he asks.

    Her eyes are wide and blue staring back at him. “I said, ‘You fainted. Are you alright?’”

His eyes fell on a pink haired boy, warm brown eyes and a smile that looked too sincere to be directed at him. It would be too cliche to say he fell in love at first sight, but Megumi suddenly understood the appeal.

    Summary

    Sometimes Renjun really loved his job. 

    It was a Tuesday afternoon when he couldn’t feel more happy and lucky to be the only one taking his shift in the store. He was working in the sex shop he liked the most, it was called Sticky and he used to be one of their most frequent customers until Doyoung, his boss, offered him a job after he helped a lost boy who didn’t even know where the condoms were.

    It wasn’t really hard most days, except when he had to face douchebag clients who thought the services had Renjun included. Not the best moments, to be frank.

    But, there were also incredible moments at the job. Just like all those times when Kim Jungwoo got gets to try the newest arrivals, and everything seemed so worth it.

    Summary

    "I've always been the good-time guy," Tim finally says. "At work. With friends. With people who want to fuck me. 'Tim's always good for a laugh, just invite him out every few months then never talk to him in-between.' 'Tim's good for a bonk. Don't worry he never gets attached.' 'Tim will take it in stride. He always does.'"

    Having always used humor and sex as a deflection and a wall to keep people out, Gerry knows exactly what he means. He can't say he has a ton of people who would drop everything to be there when he's hurting. Not that he would drop his own act long enough to actually ask for the help anyway.

    He realizes this isn't at all what he thought. What he's seeing right now is something rare, an overlooked treasure. His favorite kind.

    "People always want me around to be fun and then they never want to be around me when I'm like..." Tim gestures at himself, "this."

    Before he can control himself, before he can suppress the thought, Gerry thinks, I do.

    Followed quickly by, Oh fuck.
