But then he's awakened in the middle of the night. In his kitchen, he finds a beautiful young (and naked) woman eating rice crackers! Why is her name Fear? Why is she standing naked in his kitchen? What will Konoha Muramasa, his friend and schoolmate, say when she finds out? And just what the heck was his dad thinking?
