This is a story made up somewhere, sometime, dedicated to somebody.
Having lost most your memories, ‘You’ arrived at a secret school that regular humans would never be able to see.
There, young girls known as ‘Pentagrams’, joyfully study in order to become true ladies.
‘You’ were given a spot as a teacher, and began your busy days of handling the young girls…
But this fanciful garden of Eden was nothing but the prologue to a grand wwar against the men known as the ‘Knights’.
