Song of Our Beginning by Mina Nomori *NEW*

Ever since Kairi Higa came along, Seiji Mimasaka has been having a hard time.

It’s finally time to raise the curtains on “Branded Sea.” Has Higa become the lead Seiji needs him to be?

Higa’s scriptwriter/director lover can’t seem to make time for his boyfriend’s loving…or can he?

After ten years of being lovers, Seri suddenly breaks up with Makito. Where did this come from?

What should Nana do with this big lug of a model crying all over him? Should he punch?

Seiji’s distracted and it’s all Higa’s fault. What did he do?

Story Summary:
A collection of stories about pushing limits and stepping out of comfort zones…

“Song of Our Beginning”: Director Seiji Mimasaka is about one nerve away from blowing up. Nothing seems to be going according to plan for his theatrical group Hey! Fever’s 10th public performance. Mimasaka is at a loss when his star actor is injured and quits the production but leaves it to his trusty producer to find a most fitting replacement, Kairi Higa. Higa is perfect. Almost. And it’s up to sharp-tongued Mimasaka to polish his new egotistical star so that he can put on another spine-tingling production and leave his audience in awe.

“Let Me Hold You”: Ten years is a long time to date someone. But after ten years, you get comfortable with the person you love. Makito thought that these regular days would continue. But one morning, Seri destroys his reality and states that they are breaking up and Seri is moving out in the coming week. WHAT IS GOING ON!? DID MAKITO DO SOMETHING WRONG!? SERI!

“Another Sleepless Night”: Nanaha had known Tetsuya, stage name Te-tsu, since before he became a model and, subsequently, a huge success. Tetsuya used to be a helpless country bumpkin who relied on Nanaha for everything. But now, the recently popular star has ladies falling for him left and right. Will their relationship change now that it seems like Tetsuya can stand on his own two feet, or is Nanaha needed now more than ever?

Being next-door neighbors with the love of your life, having them sneak into your room at night and sleep in your bed, walking to school together every day, and watching them date others while having to support them would make anybody stronger…

Wako wants to stay by Takeo’s side for as long as possible. He doesn’t mind if Takeo finds a girlfriend and has mentally prepared himself for when Takeo finds a wife. But Wako’s world flips upside down when Takeo says something unexpected like, “I could go for a guy, too.”
