A night of carousing and binge-drinking result in a morning of regrets. For Ryuuji, not only was it his first time, but his first love as well. But for Takaaki, it was just another fling. Determined to not let it be a one-night-stand, Ryuuji tries to have a relationship with Takaaki. Amazingly, Takaaki grows to love Ryuuji in return, but he can’t seem to stop himself from having numerous affairs. Fed up with Takaaki’s philandering ways, Ryuuji realizes that if he can’t have Takaaki to himself, then he can’t have him at all. Thus, he decides to break off the relationship.
Five years later and Takaaki has grown to tremendously regret the one that got away. But fate deals him a merciful hand – a new substitute teacher is due to arrive at their school and it is none other than Ryuuji! Takaaki goes for the second chance, pursuing Ryuuji yet again. But Ryuuji, once bitten and twice shy, can’t seem to forget what a player Takaaki is. Though in his heart of hearts, he knows that he still loves Takaaki very much. Stubborn as Ryuuji is, can he stop all the feelings he has locked away for five years from pouring forth like an intense rain?
