After escaping her abusive father's clutches, Elle becomes Ellowyn Vestein, the adopted daughter of the prestigious ducal family. Unlike how he was, her newfound family is kind and loving towards her. She will do anything for their happiness, even if it means living in torment for the rest of her life.
With the recurrent news of the bedridden emperor and no heir yet chosen for the throne, a civil war brews in the horizon. Ellowyn attends Murwic academy to protect her sister and her sister's fiancé, the second prince.
Yet there, she finds the reclusive Ikras Alciel, son of disgraced nobility who's already sworn loyalty to the first prince. Even though they're supposed to be on opposing sides, Ellowyn can't help but reach her hand out to him... as they are both merely two flowers swaying among many in this vast meadow.
