High school student Ao has been dreaming about his longtime neighbor Ryomei, a priest at the local Shinto shrine. A little freaked out--and a lot excited--at the prospect of having a relationship with Ryomei, Ao gathers up his courage, confesses his feelings...and gets turned down flat. Luckily, Ao's not the kind to give up easily. Thanks to some creative persistence (and Ryomei's weakening resolve), he finally gets a kiss. But one single kiss won't satisfy him for long!
Ryomei has been steadily refusing Ao’s advances, but when Ao says this could be the last time they see each other for a while he decides it’s time to make a move. Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances halt their night of passion, and things get even more complicated when Ao perceives Ryomei’s sudden interest as pity. What will it take to convince Ao that this time it’s the real deal? This story of not-so-unrequited love reaches its climax in the final volume of Bond of Dreams, Bond of Love!
