The Tearmoon empire has collapsed thanks to the corruption of its rulers, and in the face of a social revolution like this, the worst feelings flourish.
Until that moment, Princess Mia had been an extravagant, arrogant and very selfish woman. At no point in her life did she care about the people who worked for her, and she did not hesitate to use her power to hurt them.
And when the empire fell, the princess ended up being locked in a dungeon. Without any mercy, Mia ended up living there for three long years, suffering all kinds of abuse from her captors, which she wrote, along with a list of mistakes, in an old diary.
Finally, when the revolution was consummated, it was decided to carry out Mia’s public execution. A symbolic liberation from the tyranny and poverty into which her family plunged the population.
Despite this, Anne, the most loyal of her subjects, continued coming to the dungeon to groom the depressed princess. And until the last day of her life, Mia had words of gratitude and regret for her.
Despite being executed, Mia wakes up in her enormous room at the age of twelve. For a moment she begins to think that everything had been a dream. However, for some reason, an old bloody book appears next to her, the diary she wrote in the dungeon.
Upon reading it for the first time, Mia doesn’t pay much attention to it and she continues her day as she used to. At mealtime, her memory begins to return, and she sadly recalls how a piece of stale bread tasted to her.
She also remembers that in the past, she had fired the cook and his assistants for serving her food that she did not like, but this time she was moved to tears by the meal and thanks him, which surprises everyone.
While she considers whether she really lived through such a tragedy, she requests something sweet to taste with tea. And after a few minutes, she sees a beautiful cake in the distance. With great excitement, she prepares to receive it, only to see that the person carrying it cannot see where she is walking and she ends up falling to the ground.
Mia gets very upset and for a moment she is about to explode, like she used to do, but instead she approaches and looks at the girl, Anne, the same girl who years later continued to care of her when she was locked up.
Mia understands that what she wrote is true, and that if she wants to avoid her fate she must pay attention to everything that went wrong, to the point of provoking a revolution.
She orders that Anne be arranged as her personal maid and immediately locks herself in the library to begin studying the situation of the empire, and she remembers that her diary mentions Ludwig, a minister that she must approach.
