Shiori just got a letter from Riichi. They were childhood friends up until he kissed her and left for America, and the thought of that jerk coming back has her so distracted that she gets caught in a wave and almost drowns! She would’ve died, too, if it weren’t for that mysterious boy with a tattoo… He cut himself so badly to save her, and he left her with the kind of ring a boy would give to his girlfriend–but she never saw his face. Later in the day, Shiori spies a hot pro surfer from America… named Riichi! He’s back, and he still wants to date Shiori, and…how did he get that terrible cut…?
