Taisei, a vocalist in the boy band 4LIGHT, is known for his poppy, electric stage persona. But that persona is just a mask to cover one major insecurity of his; he only started singing to keep up with his childhood friend, Shou. When both boys were scouted in high school, they began to drift apart, and Taisei has watched Shou — with his superior voice but weaker stage presence — flounder in his own band. Taisei hates that he has the career his best friend deserves.
Suffocated by the restrictive life of a pop idol he never truly wanted, Taisei tries to reconnect with Shou… Only to find that Shou has also changed under the glitz and lights of the stage. Taisei isn’t sure what to think of this new Shou… At least, until he kisses him.

Naomi is sixteen years old, a Japanese American with a name that’s read as being far more feminine here than what her parents were going for. This wouldn’t be an issue if it weren’t for the fact that she was technically born a boy, even if she’s never identified that way. She dresses as she likes only when she’s alone, in the dead of night.
NAOMI is a short story about Naomi, her friend Haiden, and a situation that makes her heart stop.
