This story is a spin-off of Minako Narita's Cipher, with Siva's friend Alex Levine as the main character. Ever since Alex was young, he has harbored a complex about his extremely pretty face. People are always comparing him to a girl, so to combat this image, he has thrown himself into practicing martial arts. One day, though, he is scouted by someone to become a fashion model, and thus begins Alex's tale of growth and romance!
