"You told me before that you'd never regret meeting me. Do you still feel that way now?"
Eighteen-year-old Sakura has spent her high school years living in self-imposed isolation. She's carefully perfected her role as a cold, stuck up snob at school to keep her classmates, her teacher, the world at a distance so they will never learn the truth: about the night her father's mental illness tore her world apart, leaving her an orphan and living on borrowed time.
To help her get through the pain, the kind man who adopted her would spin fantastical stories about his childhood friend Kazuki, a magical yokai from another world. Harmless fairy tales to take her mind off things, or so she always thought…
Until the night she finds Kazuki lying wounded in her garden. With the handsome yokai now sharing her house, a jealous young tengu living in her cherry tree, and new friends pushing their way past her walls, Sakura's stoic acceptance of her fate is slipping.
But with the end of her life rapidly approaching, is she only setting herself up for heartache and regret?
