    Summary

    Shion is a world famous five-time gold medalist ice skater who just completed his eighth season of ice skating and is already training for his ninth. Nezumi is a ballet performer at a theater in Tokyo who has just been discovered by a film producer and promptly cast in his first feature film - a film that requires him to learn to ice skate. Nezumi's agent hires Shion to coach him, and Shion agrees, swept away by Nezumi's beauty and ignoring his lack of any actual coaching experience.

    Preview:
    “Have you been on the ice before?”
    Nezumi tightened the bows of his laces, stood up in a careful way. Shion looked up at him, the length of him. He was tall, long-limbed. He wore a baggy sweater with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows that fell loosely over the black leggings clinging to the length of his legs. The sweater was sky blue and said Cinderella on the front with pale pink letters. The back said CAST – NEZUMI.
    “No,” Nezumi said. He had a low voice, but it projected, as if he was always on stage, whispering for an audience. Shion found himself leaning forward with each word Nezumi spoke. He leaned forward at the silences between the words. He leaned forward with every breath he took and released.

    Summary

    The man appeared adorned in black as far as Shion could tell. It was dark in his bedroom after all. The only thing he could really make out about the man was his glowing red eyes.
    His smile was bright, and he tilted his head slightly in content. “Who ordered you to watch out for me?”
    “Your mother. She’ll be gone by morning.” His illuminated eyes narrowed.

    Summary

    Shion's touch is deadly - literally. Shion's skin cannot come in direct contact with anyone else's, or the other would die. Nezumi, new to the small town where Shion lives, does not know that, and while Nezumi usually keeps his distance from people, Shion happens to be the exception.

    Preview:
    When Nezumi reaches out to take the toothbrush, of course their fingers do not touch. Instead, Nezumi’s skin grazes Shion’s glove, and Shion pretends he can feel it, the warmth that his mother told him resulted in the contact of skin-against-skin.
    He wonders if Nezumi’s skin is warm too, or if it is like his voice, cool and smooth. Maybe his fingers are soft, even though they share the hue of hard porcelain.
    “Thanks,” Nezumi murmurs, and Shion likes the way his gratitude comes grudgingly, likes that he has to earn it, likes that it only seems more genuine because of this.
    “You’re welcome, Nezumi,” Shion says.
    He likes saying Nezumi’s name. The syllables are strange and secretive on his tongue. Jumble around his lips like a mystery in themselves.
    Shion likes that this man has secrets. In a town where Shion knows everyone, it is nice to know he is no longer the only one with something to hide.

    Summary

    Nezumi has been a servant boy in the royal castle for eight years, his topmost duty being to cater directly to the prince - Shion. While Nezumi does not find his duties particularly difficult, a nearly impossible part of his job includes hiding his feelings for the prince he has loved for as long as he can remember.

    Preview:
    “You’re okay with this?”
    “With?” Nezumi asks, leaning back from the prince, stepping back to put space between them because they are much too close, sometimes Nezumi worries that they are much too close for what he can stand.
    “Me getting married,” Shion says, and Nezumi raises an eyebrow.
    “Aren’t you typically supposed to ask the father of the bride for permission? I was not aware I had a daughter, especially not one in such a high enough place to court Your Majesty.”
    “Nezumi,” Shion says, and Nezumi waits for the rest, but nothing comes.
    He exhales, looks away from Shion, at the mirror where he can see Shion’s reflection looking at him too earnestly, where he can see his own reflection, sleeves rolled up to his elbows, ponytail half out, bangs scattered.
    He sees a prince and a servant.

    Summary

    There's no way to give a decent summary of this without spoilers, so here's the brief version:
    After attending the same grade school but never speaking, Shion and Nezumi meet in college, where Nezumi is the librarian's assistant and Shion finds himself frequenting the library for more reasons than the books. The start of their relationship is easy and incredible, in a way that doesn't seem able to last...

    Preview:
    As Shion was leaving, he stopped at Nezumi’s doorway, where Nezumi had followed him. The roommate had fallen onto his bed, and an arm dangled off. Shion stared at his arm from the doorway, the way his fingers nearly touched the floor.
    “Shion,” Nezumi said, and Shion looked up, wondered if Nezumi would kiss him again, waited with his heart in his lips, ready to offer it to this man.
    But Nezumi only smiled, a small smile, not amused or smirking but just happy, if a bit tentative. The side of his face was illuminated now by the light of the television screen.
    “Goodnight,” he whispered, and Shion thought maybe this small smile lit up by the light of the television screen was even better than a kiss.

    Summary

    “Um,” He said awkwardly, “Hey.” Shion stayed silent and Nezumi winced. “I’m sorry, Shion, I’m—” He said desperately. “Shut up,” Shion whispered, cutting him off. “Shut up,” He said again, choking, and Nezumi’s heart squeezed at the raw sound of his voice. He wanted to speak, to soothe him, but Shion had said not to and so he wouldn’t.
