The story starts with a fox that kind of tells her life so far. She explains that she has a mother who is a strong fox and can use magic. Which then reveals that they are elemental spirits.
That day her mother goes out to do some errands. And the kid gets out of the house because she is terrified and is looking for the city in case her mom is there. She does not find her mom but ends up at a knights building(?).
She is found by a knight there and is very scared of him at first but eventually warms up to him. Eventually the mc becomes friends with all the knights and she is seen as some kind of mascot for the knights.
A few knights go on an expedition because of the sudden heavy snowfall that has been happening. The knights find out eventually that the cause of this is the mother of the mc because she is worried for her child and wants to kill those who “captured” her.
The mc goes back to living with the mom and visits the knights from time to time. She also makes friends with a fire spirit that she met along with the human kingdom’s royals.
The mc eventually also meets her father who is a water spirit that is a snake. When she visits her father he takes care of her a lot and the mother eventually also visits him.
The mc is eventually able to turn into a human because she developed her powers enough.
