Basic Story Premise: You and Kaoru are officially in a relationship.  However, you still have some difficulty understanding and interpreting Kaoru because he still prefers to keep his emotions hidden.  One day at work you are asked to manage a well-known erotic fiction writer who will be writing stories for your company’s magazine.   What happens when the writer declares you to be his muse and promptly asks you to act out a few scenes with him?  Will Kaoru remain stone-faced… or will some emotions finally boil over?  Will the situation just be too much for Kaoru to handle, forcing him to walk away from you and the relationship?
