Janine had entered her twenties with cautious optimism and a meticulously crafted path: Ace the Aptitude and Practicality Exams for mechanical engineering, graduate with an influential sponsor (preferably from the government), and begin her career in the heart of Caballeros City while occasionally going back home to fix whatever was wrong on her mother's farm. It was a great plan by her standards, one that had nearly every month mapped out with what to do, and the only real risk was that she doesn't qualify for engineering and is instead assigned to another career path.

However, when Janine entered the exam room, she had no way of knowing that when she stepped out, her world was going to drastically deviate from that plan for good.
