However, there is one thing the handsome sorcerer is keeping secret from the young prince—the raging demon that Vald turns into every night can only be calmed when Halvi satisfies his lust!

Yama & Momo by Harada
Good-for-nothing Momo lacks the ability to look after himself, and is the ultimate slut. Yata is the mothering type, a reliable but simple guy. The two get off to the worst possible start when Yata comes across Momo during a post-sex clean-up in a public restroom. Taking advantage of Yata's kindness, Momo ends up staying at his apartment. As he spends more with Yata, the once-slovenly Momo starts to change... But in the midst of this, Momo's previous "owner" shows up. An erotic comedy with a sad twist that'll pull at your heartstrings.

Even though years have passed, Naoto finds he’s still steamed over some of the harsh words that were exchanged, but he also recognizes how much Taichi has matured since then and can’t help getting pulled back in. Will the discovery of his friend’s crush on Taichi fray the fragile threads of this mending relationship?
