K and Sumire Addressing the reader in a conversational tone, the narrator of this novel begins with the story of how his only friend and crush Sumire falls in love for the first time. Through his eyes, we meet the disheveled and endearing aspiring novelist Sumire, and watch her transformation as she is consumed by affection for an older, married woman named Mui. Before she met Mui, Sumire wrote every day, often sharing her stories with the unnamed narrator we know only by his initial, K.

Out loud, K tells her the new look is nice on her, but inwardly he prefers the messier Sumire. When Sumire leaves without telling him on business, K takes it in stride, but he misses her company and feels the loss of her attention deeply. She is willing to surrender every aspect of herself just to spend more time close to Mui. A misunderstanding in an early conversation made Mui accidentally call Sumire a Sputnik, when what she meant was a Beatnick poet, but the metaphor turned out to be an accurate one.

That we were wonderful traveling companions but in the end no more than lonely lumps of metal in their own separate orbits. The Split Mui and Sumire get closer, and Sumire realizes that Mui dyes her hair; naturally, it is pure white. Mui explains that it turned white after an event in her past.

Her soul or some necessary aspect of her being was stolen by some kind of an evil creature while she was trapped, and watching. Her dark haired, musically talented and sensual self is never reunited with the Mui that Sumire has met. Sumire absorbs this odd tale, and feels closer to Mui. Her need to be close to Mui intensifies.

What happens next? Sumire wakes from a nightmare, and Mui finds her sitting on the floor of her bedroom. She wipes the sweat off her, and allows her to get into bed with her. Sumire tries for kissing, hoping to disocver that Mui loves her in this way too, but Mui cannot respond. She explains that she is missing that half of herself. The next morning Sumire is gone. Gone Sumire has vanished, and Mui calls the only person she can think of that Sumire trusted: our narrator, K. They rule out suicide or kidnapping, and K discovers some odd writing Sumire left behind.

He decides she has left completely for the other realm where the other half of Mui is. He is sure he will not ever see her again.
