The stage is England in the 1990s. The main character is her 10-year-old girl, Aya. Growing up as an orphan since she was a baby, Aya was very comfortable with her life in her orphanage, where everyone did what she wanted. So she never thought she wanted someone to give her. However, one day, a strange duo who suddenly came, a flashy woman and a tall man will take over. “My name is Bella Yaga. I’m a witch. I brought you home because I wanted help.” Aya replies to the woman who claims to be so, “Then, it’s decided. Instead of her aunt teaching me magic, I’ll be her assistant.” However, Bella Yaga just uses Aya as her assistant. No matter how much you ask, no matter how hard you work, no magic will be taught. Mandrake, a dubious man who lives with a witch, only shows his face when he eats. He’s always in a bad mood, and his habit is “don’t bother me.” For the first time in her life, Aya hits a wall that “doesn’t go the way she wants”, but she begins her counterattack, saying, “Okay, I’m going to lose.” Her feat was to manipulate the people around her to get her to do what she wanted.
