Philip failed to ignore the body heat and floral fragrance coming off the young women flanking him.

With his hand beneath the touch pool’s surface, he willed the little left-handed hermit crab to show. The Todai co-eds surrounding him held their collective breath, their bowed heads and bodies creating a pocket world.

Concentrating on the crab as its legs pricked his palm, he was caught off-guard as a dozen voices harmonized in amazement: “Kawaii!” (Cute!)

Their voices slid into his ears and coaxed desire from along his spine; Philip shivered.

The crab leapt, landing seconds later on a sea cucumber.
