Her name is Misery, and she does NOT want company. 

                                                     ***


It's not every day sixteen year old Misery Hayes finds a rock band full of pretty boys on her door step. 

Actually, it's not every day Misery Hayes interacts with humans, because being named after an emotion Merriam-Webster defined as "extreme suffering" tended to make one a loner.

Well, sort've.

You see: Enid Conception Diaz, Youtube sensation and Misery's best friend, has sold her Tuesday afternoons to Blue Vendetta, an extremely popular alternative rock band consisting of one moody lead singer, one tease of a guitarist, one amiable bassist, and the world's most unstable drummer.

Can Blue Vendetta help Misery open up?

Or will she prove whoever said "misery loves company" horribly wrong?

I can totally understand where she's coming from. It is kinda telling to be given such a name. If it's also reinforced by her parents' attitude and actions towards her, then it can really mess her up. At least she still has a sense of humor, though.

That chapter title, though. :)) I already know that it's gonna be funny. (Or maybe not?) :))

Oh girl! You are adorable but i feel ya! I will do as you planned to someone who invades my personal space. I might succeed too. But if they looked anywhere like BTS, then um.... hug me, oppa!!!
