When Honma agreed to be the exclusive assistant to Akae, a popular manga artist, he didn't realize just what "exclusive" meant! Soon Akae refuses to draw another panel until Honma belongs to him - in mind and body. But Honma is haunted by a painful past. Can Akae help heal old wounds? Meanwhile Akae's editor Misonou has his own problems when another assistant, Sakai, shows up with some feisty demands. Soon Sakai has literally run Misonou ragged, and with his health in tatters he has a choice to make: Is diving into his work a good prescription, or has the best medicine been right in front of him all along?
