"There, there! Good boy!" Mito Takami cooed as she rubbed the fur of her family's large dog, Shiitake. It was at this point that Riko Sakurauchi, best friend of Mito's younger sister Chika, exited the dressing room, now dressed in a skimpy, fashionable maid's outfit needed for she and her friends' idol group practice. A soft gasp escaped Riko's lips when she saw Shiitake, for she had a pretty bad fear of dogs, even ones she knew.
