Happiness was fleeting with Jack no longer by my side. One stupid misunderstanding had torn apart everything he and I had built together, I was shattered.
I had thought my heart would finally begin to mend when I was re-united with my Best Friend Brian. He was hurting too, and I thought we could help each other take away the pain. Little did I know, things were about to get a whole lot more complicated...
"You could be my Hero, if only I could let go, but his love is still in me, like a Broken Arrow..."
Inspired by the story behind Pixie Lott's song Broken Arrow
Waitress at the Diner on the Pier in Huntington Beach. Massive fan of Avenged Sevenfold and low-key Groupie. Bassist, shy, and just trying to find her place in the world.
Julia's Boyfriend and the incredibly talented Drummer of Confide. Jimmy is his Drum Teacher. A bit of a quiet soul, but has a big heart.
Pro-Skater and Stuntman. Part of the infamous CKY and Jackass crews. Ruby meets Bam at High Voltage tattoo one day and they instantly become friends. Always ready to wreak havoc, or have Ruby's back in dire situations.
Brian Haner Jr aka "Synyster Gates"
Ruby's Best Friend. They used to be practically inseperable until Jack ripped Ruby away from him and the rest of the guys. Despite his cocky, sometimes arrogant nature; Brian cares very deeply for Ruby and would move Heaven and Hell for her.
Demetria "Demi" Jayde
Ruby's Best Friend and Jimmy's female clone. Loud, obnoxious, completely bat shit crazy. Never fails to make a scene and bring her friends to the point of tears from laughing at her antics. Hot-headed and sometimes stubborn, tough-as-nails and wouldn't back down from a fight if it came to one.
Ruby's Ex Boyfriend. He started off as sweet, wonderful, everything Ruby had ever hoped of finding and for the most part, he stayed that way. But, he was very, very possessive and controlling of her and quite frequently accused her of sleeping with Brian behind his back. He was a drug addict who prioritized partying over spending time with Ruby, but expected her to bow down to his every command. He ripped Ruby away from the guys for two years, which broke her heart. Until he dropped her, and left her absolutely shattered.
Brian's Ex-Girlfriend and a Stripper at the Pussycat Dolls Lounge in LA. Brian's idea of the "Perfect Woman" despite the less-than-glamorous way they met. She was a party animal with a temper, who could drink like a man and fuck like a woman. Brian's never been quite the same since she cheated on him and broke his heart.
Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan
Brian's Best Friend and Demi's Boyfriend. Totally out of his mind in the most wonderful way, always up to some kind of mischief, and lights up everyone's days. Serious when need be, and not afraid to call Brian out on his bullshit.
Johnathan Seward aka "Johnny Christ"
One third of the Troublesome Trio. He's a little shit with an attitude problem, but incredibly faithful to McKenna. Used to have a mad crush on Ruby prior to her moving away two years ago. Would still stick up for her in a heartbeat, and is just itching to get his hands around Jack's throat for hurting her so badly.
A friend of Ruby's whom she meets at Johnny's bar one night. Funny, geeky, but a little shy and insecure. Has a heart of Gold and just wants to make people smile.
Lead Guitar and Vocals for Cherri Bomb. McKenna's Best Friend. She reminds Ruby of herself at her age. She's cheeky and frequently makes with the Sexual Innuendo's. A badass rock-chick with a tough-as-nails attitude. Killer guitar player, possibly the best young female Guitarist in Los Angeles, not surprising considering Brian is her tutor.
Down to earth rock chick with a heart of gold. Fun-loving and outgoing, sometimes a bit of a bad influence, though she really means no harm. A very deeply loving and devoted partner to Zacky, whom she absolutely adores.
Matthew Sanders aka "M Shadows"
The "Big Brother" figure of the group, particularly for Ruby. He has always been protective of her from day dot. It was lucky that Jack didn't get any grief from him when he became extremely possessive of Ruby. Matt would have stepped in and stopped him, but didn't at the respect of Ruby's wishes. He would still do anything to make sure no harm befalls her.
Brian's kid sister, and practically Ruby's too. Dating Johnny. McKenna is the youngest of the entire group, though wise beyond her years. She's got a knack for reading people's body language and can tell what they're thinking with a single glance.
Nia and Rena Lovelis, Miranda Miller.
Drummer, Bassist and Rhythm Guitarist/Keyboardist of Cherri Bomb. McKenna's friends. Oddball girls with crazy hair, but talented young musicians.
Ruby used to be strong, crazy, happy-go-lucky and fun. But then she fell deeply in love for the very first time in her life, only to have her heart crushed and with it, all the life drained out of her. She's now very withdrawn, and suffers from frequent Anxiety attacks and Depression.
Ruby's Best Friend from back in Chicago.
Zacky's cousin and Matt's girlfriend. She is Demi's best friend and became like her sister in the time that Ruby was away. A little bit anxious and insecure. Obsessed with 80's bands, B-Grade Horror, and 50's Pinup girls.
Zachary Baker aka "Zacky Vengeance"
One third of the Troublesome Trio. Dating Krista "Kiki". Cheeky, unpredictable, but has a big heart. Loves Ruby like a Sister and was completely shattered when she had to leave two years ago.
