Last Lover

Koki who usually sleeps next to Miyu, was gone when she woke up in the morning. Miyu thought it was another one of his pranks. However, Koki had died sleeping at the wheel. Since then weird things started to happen around Miyu. Co-worker gets killed by someone.
Believing these cases were related, Miyu talks about it with her co-worker, Konishi.
Unlike Koki, Konishi is a hardworking and friendly man. Miyu starts to develop (have) feelings for Konishi as they became closer.
Then one day Koki comes back as a ghost proclaiming that he returned for Miyu. Overjoyed, miyu regains the happiness that she lost since koki had died , but living with a ghost is never easy.
