Two lovers,  Oume and Kumenosuke, sit back to back in a candid moment of respite, resting. Kumenosuke's eyes are trained outwards, aware, and watching, protecting the couple from happenstance. His lover, Oume, sits head bowed, a smile just escaping her lips, as she loses herself in the memories of their recent love affair. From the series; True Feelings Compared: The Founts of Love.
