An incredibly timid freshman, Pete (Saint Suppapong Udomkaewkanjana) has found adjusting to university life to be a bit more challenging than he anticipated. Because of his good looks and his wealth, Pete has always been approached by those interested in him, but time and experience has taught him that letting people in only leads to heartache; a fact that becomes even more apparent once people learn that he is gay. Now using his shyness as a means of self-preservation, Pete does all he can to keep people out, thereby protecting himself from the cruelty of others.
But everything changes the day an accident causes Ae (Perth Tanapon Sukumpantanasan) to come crashing into Pete’s life. A freshman from the Engineering School, Ae is a kindhearted soul who is always willing to help those in need. When Ae learns Pete is being blackmailed by his ex, he steps in, saving Pete from his ex’s constant torment. Drawn to Ae’s kindness, Pete can’t help but fall for his gentle-natured friend. But Pete knows only too well, how painful life can be when you don’t conform to society’s norms; so he suppresses his feelings, hoping that in so doing, he can spare his new friend from the ridicule of others.
Unbeknownst to Pete, Ae has begun to reciprocate his friend’s feelings. Drawn to Pete’s kindness and endearing innocence, Ae knows his heart belongs to his friend, but how can he admit his feelings without jeopardizing their friendship?
