A young woman's love that pierces through the vastness of a thousand years.

Eighties. The romanticism of the early rock’n’roll, the making of the trans-national corporations, the spirit of freedom and rebellion against society, political intrigues, world unbound by the vice of globalization and the birth of modern business model. The time when money could buy everything and meant nothing.
The main character is a son of a Soviet Union diplomat, living in Japan since childhood. After his parents returned to their motherland, he has been living alone, working part-time as a programmer for a large Japanese corporation and attending a local elite school for children from wealthy families. One day he gets caught in a whirlwind of events, intrigues and complicated human relationships. Is he destined to get out of this whirlwind unhurt and find his love?
“Women are snakes and liars, all of them: the more beautiful, the more conniving. Don’t let your guard down, or they will ruin you.”
Yuel was only six years old when he witnessed his mother being put to death, for the heinous crime of daring to have an affair. For other women, such a folly mightn’t have been so lethal, but for Yuel’s ill-fated mother – the wife and queen of Indra’s tyrannical king, Khalil – it spelt her doom.
As he witnesses his mother’s corpse decomposing beneath the intense sunlight, Yuel’s father offers him some sage words of wisdom: namely, not to trust women. They are, in Khalil’s words, wicked and deceitful, and becoming too attached can end in nothing save disaster.
Outwardly, Yuel must swallow his sorrow, for fear of earning his father’s ire. Kings are not, after all, supposed to cry; even future kings such as him. In private, however, Yuel turns to his nursemaid, the kindly Safiya, for succour. Safiya is Yuel’s only ally in the palace: his father cold and distant; the servants deferential, brow-beaten, and kept silent through fear. Without Safiya, Yuel would be all alone...
Yet she, too, abandons him, when Yuel grows old enough to no longer need a nursemaid to tend to him.
Bereft and embittered, Yuel has nothing to look forward to, until – after a prolonged illness – his father eventually dies, and Yuel inherits the throne and the crown in his stead.
No longer a young boy – Safiya’s ‘little prince’ – but a grown man, Yuel plots to win Safiya over once more. Unable to forget about her, and unable to trust any other woman, Yuel cannot conceive of a life without her. She did promise to stay with him, after all - and, single-minded to a fault, Yuel is determined to see this promise fulfilled at any cost.
Marie Mamiya reigns supreme.
From the moment she appeared at the Royal Family Fitness Club, an ultra-luxurious gym jointly run by the Mamiya Zaibatsu and Sugimoto Pharmaceuticals, she was instantly in charge. The first thing she did was appoint her own personal trainer, passing over a building full of muscle-bound men in favor of our unimpressive protagonist.
But she’ll train him into shape—in the pursuit of beauty.
