If a beautiful girl could fall from the sky in front of a boy, why couldn't a hot boy in front of a girl?

"My name is written as the tree (樹), pronounced as Itsuki. Miss, if you don't mind, may you take me home? I won't bite, and I'm well-mannered."
This was all Sayaka heard from this gorgeous male stranger, but this was enough.
Their everyday lives together gradually became irreplaceable. Let this flower bloom, and this relationship grow!
Through the growing weeds and flowers on the road, the sweetest, deepest, newest love novel is born!
