This doujinshi starts out with a series of Zidane-Vivi light shounen-ai gags. After they find Puck in Cleriya, Zidane, apparently not liking the idea of competition for the spot of Vivi's Best Friend, kicks Puck right back into the Ant Lion's funnel. Zidane, watching Vivi play jumprope, gets starry-eyed and develops a nosebleed. In fact, he gets nosebleeds quite a lot - four times in the space of 5 pages! He'd better get away from Vivi or he's gonna need a transfusion.

In the serious story, Vivi goes out at night to gaze at the stars. Zidane scares the crap out of him by shouting and jumping at him from behind. After they calm down they go to an open area outside of town and talk and stargaze. After a few pages of conversation Vivi suddenly falls forward onto Zidane, and Zidane is terrified that Vivi's "stopped" then and there. But then, to Zidane's relief, Vivi starts to snore softly.

The motif of Vivi "stopping" and falling into Zidane's arms was used again, for real that time, in Mebius, which Lazies published five months later.
