He is the heir to his father’s tech company and studied business, which put him on the right path to becoming the next CEO. However, he may have a bright future, but inside his heart, he isn’t happy. His older brother isn’t around and the forest where he would wander is on his mind. So, when he goes to clear his head, he didn’t expect to see Amy again. He still regrets the misunderstanding when they were younger and never wanted anyone to bully her. Her mushroom hat was beautiful and she was kind. However, his current girlfriend was one of Amy’s bullies, as were his friends. He wishes he can make amends and start anew.

Amanita lives in the mystical forest and woods with her grandmother. All her life she wore a mushroom hat because it was made by her mother. While she spends time learning to tend the gardens, her social skills are lacking and she takes frequent naps. Ever since her grandmother got ill, she works to pay off the debt and the hospital bills. However, when income isn’t as high, she doesn’t know what to do. At least she has Kendra, and her three mushroom friends. It isn’t until Dean comes to her grandmother’s store that her past with him setting her up for bullying comes to haunt her.
