After her father died, her mother got a job at Tohma Corporation, and she worked hard to put Kaya through school. She even helped get her a job at Tohma, and now that Kaya is getting her big break, she’s going to make her mother proud. The big break turns out to be a mixed blessing. She’s assigned to be Kyohei Tohma’s secretary. Kyohei is the younger son of the senior director, and he’s a jerk. He is a demanding boss, who works long hours, and his exacting expectations have caused countless secretaries to quit. Kaya is determined to succeed, though, but his dismissive attitude is hard to deal with.
