What do you do when Fate pushes you into the path of your ultimate crush?
Sally Regal is a candidate of Balamb Garden, a mercenary network of SeeDs. But after five years of failing to pass the Fire Cavern final exam qualifier, the end of her candidacy looms. If she doesn’t make the grade, they will ship her home.
After being enrolled at Garden her motivation has forever been her crush on young war hero Zell Dincht, a legender SeeD member. If she could bolster her courage enough to tell him the failure wouldn’t cut so deep. The challenge is finding the right time.
