Cafe Miam
An unexpected letter arrives at Cariana's door one day inviting her to work at the cozy little Cafe Miam. Who is the mysterious owner of this cafe and what secrets does it hold?

Cariana has been flitting from one job to the next, never able to hold one down for more than a few days. As hard as she tries she hasn't been able to find her true calling in life.

One day she receives a letter and out falls an elaborately decorated key. "Dear Ms. Cariana", it begins, "We have been impressed with your work experience and would love to offer you the job of barista at Cafe Miam starting tomorrow. Please arrive promptly in the morning and let yourself in with the enclosed key. Our manager will provide you with training and you'll be making high-quality coffee in no time!"

Cariana doesn't remember applying for a job at Cafe Miam much less the cafe itself. This whole thing seems strange but she's always wanted to make coffee and she does need a job.

Cariana finally finds Cafe Miam nestled in the back of a quiet cobblestoned street. Aaaa~ the cafe looks so cute and cozy! She enters with the key and looks around, not really sure what to do until the manager arrives. Finally the door jingles open and in walks— A DOG?! He strolls behind the bar and hands you an apron. This must be the cafe's manager, Tarquin Barnaby II.

As Cariana sets up Cafe Miam for the day (with the help of Tarquin of course), the first customers start to slowly stream in. She's a little nervous but luckily the first orders are easy. A straight up large mug of coffee, a coffee and milk with donut special... no problem! But then someone comes in and orders an extra large cappuccino with extra foam and cinnamon... oh no! Tarquin lets out a bark and starts pointing his muzzle at the equipment. Amazingly Cariana is able to understand his instructions as Tarquin points and barks through the steps. WOAH this cappuccino is as big as her head and it smells delicious. This is fun~

Cariana has so much fun working as a barista at Cafe Miam that closing time completely sneaks up on her. Tarquin runs to the back room and reappears with a fancy looking certificate in his mouth. What's this? Looks like he must of really liked her work because she's being promoted to Assistant Manager!

Cariana is about to head out but Tarquin is giving her some major puppy eyes. She then spots a doggie bed behind the counter and realizes Tarquin doesn't have a place to stay except the cafe. Even though she's only known him a day, she's too much of a softie and can't say no to that face. She invites him to live with her. Besides, she has a good feeling she'll be at Cafe Miam for a long time.
