The moment Futaro dozes off and closes his eyes, he gets a flashback of the moment he set his eyes on his now wife. The narrative started when Futaro was a second-year high school student who was so smart. His life outside school was a complete mess as poverty was doing him dirty with his Raiha and his sister.

This was because of the burden of unpaid debts his father had left on him. A new student came to join the school named Itsuko Nakano. She asked Futaro to tutor him, but he refused and seemed not even to pay any attention to her request.
