What was I thinking? I had only wanted to return my broken vacuum cleaner to the late-night store, and maybe get a snack from the convenience store. Somewhere along the way, I had ended up walking absentmindedly into a scary looking establishment. Wait, I remember now. It was a butterfly. A butterfly had lured me down here. I had been returning home from the store, when it suddenly appeared in front of me. It was just so mesmerizing. What's a girl to do, but chase after it?

"Wait for me~!"

I had called playfully as it fluttered just out of arm's reach. Then before I knew it, here I was, in the front lobby of this rather shady-looking place. Now I'm not one to judge by appearances, but somehow I could tell. That beautiful foxy lady manning that front-desk? She definitely got more secrets to her than a priest's closet.

"Hi sweetie, what can I do for you today?"

Uh-oh. How should I let her know that this was just a honest mistake? I hope this isn't one of those 'pay-for-entry' places.

"S-Sorry, I got the wrong address. I'll be leaving now!"

There, that should do it. I spin around and turn the doorknob.

Huh? That's odd. It won't open. Maybe I'm turning it the wrong way? But when I try the other way, I'm met with resistance.

"Um... excuse me, I think your door's stuck..."
