Aoi is an exotic dancer and an elf with a kitsune lover, which makes
his life pretty unique to begin with. He's looking forward to some needed
time along with his lover Itsuke, but problems arise in the form of Aya, a
young man who claims Aoi is his father.
Aoi knows he can't possibly be the young man's father, but he feels sorry
for the kid, so he and Itsuke take Aya in. While the three of them begin to
explore their new relationship, problems arise from both Aoi and Itsuke's
families. Between familial obligations, curses and injuries, will the three
of them ever find the time they need to bond and grow together?
