    Summary

    Bokuto Koutarou is the closted trans son of a well-known businessman. He is soon to be forced into an arranged marriage with the son of another businessman, signaling an eventual merger between the two companies. His only solace is the friendship he’s made online with Red and Tetsurou, who are the only people he can trust with most of his secrets. He finds himself falling harder and harder for Red with each passing day, but to his horror, he finds that his fiancé Akaashi is clever, charming, and kind, even if he doesn't know Koutarou is trans. With the wedding approaching quickly, he’ll have to choose between safety and true love--or will he?

    Summary

    “Wait, wait!” He yanks the cap off with his teeth and carefully prints his phone number on the inside of Hajime's arm. “There. Don’t forget me in the morning. Let’s not be strangers again.”

    Hajime looks at the ten digits and the small lopsided heart at the end. He feels young and fearless. He feels like kissing him again. “I wouldn’t worry about that."

    (In which the most unexpected roads lead home.)

    Summary

    “I wanna play volleyball.”

    “S’too hot to play, Bo.”

    “But we’re sweating just laying here, we might as well sweat and do something fun.”

    It’s not the worst logic Koushi’s ever heard, but she’s still not convinced. “We can lay here and do something fun.”

    “We’ve been laying here for half an hour already.”

    “And you’re not having fun?”

    Koutarou turns her head to look at Koushi, big golden eyes blinking twice. The haze of the summer heat makes her look somehow even larger than usual. “I always have fun when we’re together,” she says.

    Summary

    ' “Hello?” Kuroo calls, when his third round of raps on the door goes unanswered. “Sorry to bother you! I live downstairs and I just—”

    What?” says his heretofore silent neighbor, who has swung the door open rather violently to reveal that he’s not an elderly lady or a distinguished professor, and is in fact a blond, bespectacled guy maybe a year or so younger than Kuroo.

    There are two important things that Kuroo gathers very quickly. One, his neighbor is cute, in a slender, nerdy, oblivious kind of way. And two, he looks to be only seconds away from murdering Kuroo in cold blood. '

    --

    Kuroo's upstairs neighbor is a bit of a mystery—one that Kuroo can't get enough of trying to solve.

    Summary

    Takashi reads the email twice, and the glow from his laptop screen is the lovely light of day. Spring, maybe early summer, with the world at its highest verve. He catches himself smiling, crinkling his eyes and the corners of his mouth.

    He can imagine a voice for this person, he can imagine the way that he’d lilt. Takashi can almost feel a firm delighted handshake, the glimmer of a smile.

    Utsui Takashi is divorced, lonely, distant from his son. Maybe the exuberant schoolteacher in his email inbox can help.
