In order to impress an esteemed client at a tea ceremony—where
Kogetsuan’s old master will be in attendance—Nao plans to help
Tsubaki make the perfect wagashi. Before she can get started,
however, Tsubaki injures his right hand while trying to protect her.
He quietly confesses his love for her is true, but Nao is still torn
on whether to tell him her real identity. Despite her reservations,
Nao falls deeper into Tsubaki’s inviting embrace… Then, on the day of
the event, Nao runs into a familiar face who knows about what
happened to her mother fifteen years ago.
