While taking an early morning walk along a foggy beach, reclusive writer Cora encounters a young girl. She looks damp, down on her luck, and utterly dejected, and Cora soon deduces that she must be a runaway.

Despite her coaxing, Cora is able to learn very little about the girl or her circumstances. She doesn’t know why the girl ran away from home, or even what her name is, but this doesn’t dissuade her.

Cora soon offers the girl a place to stay, and the girl — being homeless — has no option but to accept.

The girl moves in with Cora, and sleeps in her dingy guest bedroom with outdated furniture and a thin, mean bed. Cora buys the girl new clothes, plies her with mystery novels, all the while trying to discern her true identity.

this has any romance or adult content?


Cozy and relaxing visual novel about an unexpected friendship between two strangers. We have two main characters: a girl who ran away from home and a mysterious woman who lives alone in her cottage. Both heroines have elaborate personalities, the reader will slowly discover their pasts and watch their bond grow. The writing is great and the visuals look very nice.


Another great ebi-hime kinetic novel! Made me laugh, made me cry. O.O

Read the entire thing yesterday and really enjoyed my time with the story. The atmosphere was compelling and the art/music/ui all fit the vibe!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it! >///<
