This story is set in the Taisho era…
Tamahiko Shima was born in a wealthy family and grew up enjoying his family’s great fortune. But he had a major accident and lost the ability of his dominant right arm. His mother passed away and his father lost interest in him, casting him away to the countryside with the excuse it would help heal better. Soon he became a bitter pessimist who hates everything in the world.
One day a girl called Yuzuki appeared to take care of him. She was sent to him by his father as a wife. In the beginning Tamahiko was annoyed by Yuzuki but gradually he started to open up to her kindness and her smile…
