Book description

"Although Tsukushi Makino is from a poor family, she attends an elite school for the super rich, where her life has become intertwined with the "F4," the ruling boys of the school, in a whirlwind of love and confusion! Boys over Flowers officially ended with volume 36, but Yoko Kamio, one of the most beloved shojo creators of all time, just couldn't stay away from her beloved characters! Jewelry Box contains two short stories that take place one year after the end of Boys over Flowers volume 36.

Tsukushi's story
Tsukushi Makino is about to graduate from Eitoku Academy, and accepts the fact that she cannot afford college. Not the least of her problems, Tsukushi has barely heard from her boyfriend, Tsukasa Domyoji since his graduation the previous year. At home, Tsukushi eats dinner with her family and Rui Hanazawa, when she receives a video call from Tsukasa. The call is accidentally disconnected and a misunderstanding arises. Determined to clear things up, Tsukushi flies to Paris with the rest of the F4 to attend Shizuka Todo's wedding. Tsukushi is sightseeing alone, when an unknown man attacks her. In the nick of time, Tsukasa saves her and they return to the church together. The couple reaffirm their relationship and Tsukasa informs her that he has paid for her college.[5]
Rui's story
Rui contemplates his life at his villa in Tuscany, Italy. Shortly later, Tsukasa meets up with Rui to tell him about his plans to propose to Tsukushi. He also tells Rui about a girl named Kimiko that he should meet. Rui tells Sojiro Nishikado and Akira Mimasaka about Kimiko and they decide to find her for him. Sojiro and Akira find no information on her, however Tsukushi knows a Kimiko in her class. Rui goes on a date with the girl, however he leaves after receiving an emergency call about Tsukushi.[6]

At the hospital, Rui makes an appointment for Tsukushi to have a CAT scan. Before the scan starts, Tsukasa bursts into the room, after receiving a panicky voicemail. Tsukasa proposes to Tsukushi, who refuses, explaining that she has something to clear up. Akira and Sojiro come to meet with Tsukasa and ask about Kimiko. Rui realizes that Tsukasa has once again mixed up his words, and was not actually talking about a girl. Rui laughs and later arranges for Tsukushi and Tsukasa to meet at the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, where they finally become engaged. Meanwhile in Tuscany, Rui decides to keep the vineyards and hopes that one day he will be able to share a bottle of wine with his friends there.[7]
