Since Hakuron disappeared as soon as he arrived, Kurumi now wonders if it was all a bad dream. It isn't, actually. A few days after the incident, when she's on her way to class, Kurumi finds herself whisked off her feet and shuttled to Hong Kong, and the culprit is Hakuron! It turns out that the stranger whose life she saved is actually the most powerful and badass mobster from TheTriadsAndTheTongs, and he wants to "thank" her by making her his bride. From then on, the poor girl will be caught in the struggles among several triad groups as well as the in-fights in Hakuron's group, and will also have to deal with Hakuron's own extremely screwed up view on life and love, as well as the ''very'' traumatic loss of her own innocence. All of this happens in a strange land, very far from the Tokyo where her family and her past remain...
