Hatori Chise is a 15-year-old girl, with nowhere to call home, no purpose in life, and no means of living. Nothing, aside from the special power with which she was born. It was a non-human sorcerer, Elias, who made her his apprentice and declared her his future wife. In the time they spend together, Chise slowly regains something she'd lost before. This is the story of the beauty that exists in this world.
