A young girl, Naala, lives in the southern country of Rus. Her mother is abducted by the northern country of Nasla, leaving her as an orphan.

Her childhood friend Auri, the next king of Rus and someone whom she adores like a brother, supported her through her hardships.

Several years after that nightmarish night…

Naala was welcomed into the royal family, and began to feel at ease in her life as Auri’s bride to be.

Will Naala’s future be one of subordination, or…?
