Plot

With that, he decides to get sloppy drunk, and on his way home, he allows a teen runaway into his home. Now, being that the girl, Sayu, he been on her own for six months, allowing men to use her body to have a place to stay, she tries this with Yoshida. But with him having no interest in having sex with a minor, no matter how much she flaunts her body, what usually works ends up not doing the trick.
