The year is 2340. Does she know that? No, of course not. Mila Hayes, adopted into a noble family after years of running, is given a chance to win the hand of the prince of Iwera. She takes this opportunity for money and for the benefit of her house, which is dropping fast in rank, causing difficulties with finance. Living in the castle, she experiences traumatic dreams and finds a mysterious cat that visits her at midnight from time to time. As time progresses, Mila discovers a deep, dark secret hidden far beneath about her past, or rather, the present. Will she forgive those who betrayed her? Or will she be blinded by revenge? Author's Note: This story contains mental disturbance, violence, and strong language. This is book 1 in the BLS (Blinding Light Series). Weekly Updates: Thursday!! :)

Hello Dear Readers!! Thanks for checking my story out :D

Please note that this story contains slangs from the 17th to 19th century that may or may not be confusing, or unheard of. Here are some definitions. Hope they’re helpful!

NOTE: This story is intended, for at least the beginning to be written as the 19th century. As to say, I’m still learning. To all those French speakers, I am NOT French, so if the formatting of the sentences are wrong (most of them are words only), then I apologize!

If you enjoy my story, please give it a like, comment, share, or review! Thank you and love lots,

Since there's so many of them, that's why I'm including a dictionary. They will be defined in parentheses, this is here just in case you forget one. Or up to you if you don't want to check, you'll figure it out XD
A lot of people say footnotes. So I'm leaving them at the bottom :)
