    Summary

    Tuesday-Thursday Noon 'til Nine, the neatly printed sign in the door reads. Thor breathes out a little sigh of relief; it hadn’t turned out to be as short a walk as he’d thought, and he'd more than half expected to find the shop closed already.

    Three small bells clink and jingle as he pushes the door open. There's no one around; just a sleek black cat stretching and yawning in a blanket-filled basket at the base of the counter. The store smells richly of ink and good paper. Beautiful.

    Summary

    For Yuuri, managing a quaint, little bookstore in a far-off corner of a small town is everything he could have asked for. He earns well, the folks are not that much interesting, the coffee here is great, he has nice friends and he's got an endless pile of books.

    It's enough to make him stay, despite the desolate and boring atmosphere; that is until the Newcomer comes along.

    Summary

    Harry lives a frugal life while operating a popular used bookstore on the poor side of town. With no further education beyond eleventh grade, he's quite sure caring for the store is what he'll do for the rest of his life. After all, he can't afford college.

    Louis lives a carefree life with more money and time than he knows what to do with. With a high school diploma, he hasn't quite reached the step of enrolling, or even applying, in a college. He's just not ready to grow up in that way.

    And Louis' father, however, is a wealthy businessman who's always used to getting what he wants and what he wants is to tear down Harry's building, along with the surrounding one's, in order to make room for a brand new development his team has proposed to build. Water might just be thicker than blood.
