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?
