|Personality|
Misery, what a name to call your new born child. She always thought that her parents thought that her parents must not have wanted her so she worked hard to be a good girl, she worked hard in school, is as kind as she possibly can be to every one she meets. She does come off as a wild child because she likes to have her hair be different colors and she dresses kinda punk but she would prefer a late night at home then going out to clubs or parties. She is hyperactive which gets on peoples nerves, she is also almost deathly shy when meeting new people.

She is the type of girl who would die protecting her friends, who lashes out at people when upset, and for all the good that she is she likes to steal. Though she isn’t technically stealing sense its getting paid for, but she really likes walking in to overly expensive places and getting meals that are going on someone elses tab, to buy nice clothes and furniture. Misery also doesn’t take responsibility for her mistakes.

When something bad happens and its her fault she wont admit to it, she doesn’t like being wrong. She is probably more hard headed then a mule, which is saying something. When accidents happen through she is the first to blame herself, because it had to have been her fault because shes bad luck. Accidents arnt really accidents. All in all, Misery is complicated.

|History|
It was a stormy night in Georgia when her Misery’s mother went into labor, her father was speeding down the highway but it was no use. Little Infant Misery wasn’t going to wait for a hospital and she was delivered in her parents car on the highway, when they got to the hospital the movie version of the Stephen King novel Misery was on in the lobby. So the impressionable young parents named the daughter Misery, she had a good childhood, her parents were always kind and even though she worried that they didn’t want her because of her name, she was happy.

When she was thirteen she changed into her mother while her mother was yelling at her, both were so surprised they decided to keep it a secret, it didn’t stay one from her father very long because he startled her one day and she shifted into a mouse. Though they didnt know why she could change shapes, It became excepted in their home that she was different, when she was fifteen her parents died in a car crash coming home from the movies. She was sent to live with her very religious Aunt who, when Misery asked innocently what she would think if she saw someone change shapes, went on a rant about how the devil was trying to get into Misery’s head.

As soon as she turned 18 Misery left her Aunts house; Moved to New York, got a job and lived in the apartment above the Record Store. After a few months of questions and hard work in saving up money for a deposit she put in her application for an Apartment in Starlight, Which she got and has been living in now for little over three months.

Adrianna sighed in relief at the sight of Annabeth fussing at Ricky. She immidiately dropped what she was doing and enveloped her in a hug "Oh thank gosh you're here " She gushed "Fix him please" Ricky scowled at her "Not a dog Ade Ade scowled at him. She was about to return to getting the table ready when she heard the knock at the door. She was about to answer it but Annabeth did it for her, so she ran back into the kitchen. She peaked her head out the entrance of the kitchen only to see Tanner standing in the door.

A bright smile formed on her face when she saw Tanner. " Oh Tanner good you're here. I could use a extra pair of hands to help me carry the plates to the table." She hugged her arms to her chest, feeling suddenly bashful. She walked out of the kitchen and into the foyer where everyone was standing. Which is where she finally saw herself in a full length mirror. She had flour on her left cheek, her mass of brown curls was becoming frizzy because of the humidity in the kitchen and now she was red in the face. Though she wasn't sure if that was from the kitchen or Tanner.

Another glance in her doorway revealed Juliana, looking ridiculously beautiful as always. She self consciously tugged at the apron she was wearing but stopped herself knowing that icky and Annabeth caught on to that habit a long time ago. Juliana. " Oh hey Juliana you can just sit down or something I'll be ready to start soon." It wasn't that she didn't like Juliana specifically she just didn't like her attitude. I mean there she was all perfect and a natural guy magnet and she didn't even want it.

Moving at a ridiculously fast pace she sent Annabeth and Ricky to her bedroom and situated them with a first aid kit, an ice pack, and concealer. Then showed Taner to the kitchen to take the plates from the kitchen to the dining table, all while trying to not look like a bumbling idiot. She finished that in time to great a obviously intoxicated Zach and seat him and Juliana in the dining room. She then made sure to leave the front door open for everybody else. Before returning to the kitchen.

Ricky watched as a obviously overstretched Adrianna flitted around the apartment with a distinct similarity to an angry tinkerbell. He ended up being sent to her room with Annabeth. Which in his opinion was a very dangerous situation. " Jesus, she really needs to chill out" He remarked as he leaned on Adrianna's dresser, keeping a safe distance from him and Annabeth. He examined the jar of concealer that Adrianna handed him skeptically. "So what? do I just smear this shit on me? "

Misery hand in hand with Lance walked threw the open door, her eyes were sleepy but a smile was still curving her lips as she took in everyone. "Anna! Is there coffee made? Richy Richy Lancy Boo didnt wake me up early enough so I only got one cup before having to rush up here." Misery pouted as she addressed her friend, she also called Lance by her ridiculous nick name for him which had his ears turning pink as he quickly left her side to find anyone else to talk too. Before Anna could see or reply to her Adrianna had ushered her and Ricky else where. A tiny frown creased the girls forehead but she simply wondered her way toward the kitchen, "Ade? Hunny, you really shouldn't have made so much food... If theres coffee some where I can help. I should send Lance to grab some of the jam I picked up from the farmers market." Misery had started out trying to be helpful with her little ramble but the lack of sleep and caffeine had sent her into a half asleep state and now she was simply mumbling to herself. Luck would have it she was leaning against the wall out of the way so at least everyone who was actually helping didnt have to try and move around her.

Lance had retreated to the table seating like he owned the place, legs up and a casual smirk on his handsome face. He wasnt paying attention to the world around him but his eyes did roam Julianna for a moment before falling away. She was beautiful but Lance wasnt one to dirty his home with messy antics. He may flirt all he want but he wasn't going to actually do anything. Listening he caught win of Misery's rambling and stood to go to her rescue.

Juliana smiled as she was ushered in and sat down at the table, well this was awkward, especially since it didn't look like Ade was done cooking. She hated sitting and having nothing to do, especially since everyone else looked like they were doing something, or attempting too in any case. The smell of bacon coming from the kitchen made her stomach growl. It was the one thing that made all the other models look at her weird, she actually liked to eat, and Saturday was her cheat day. Her diet would suffer greater with just breakfast, but she always could run an extra mile or go to the gym tomorrow, that was if she really cared.

She couldn't starve herself like some others did, the notion was just ridiculous to her. She got up from the table after she remember she had biscotti with her. She slipped into the kitchen, hopefully unnoticed, and put in where she could find a empty space. She heard voices and turned to see first Zachary, then Misery and Lance come into the apartment. So she was definitely not sitting down now, Zachary was the only guy who fascinated and scared her death. Not only did she think he was crazy, but he drank to much; yet he was nice to everyone, so at least he wasn't one of those mean drunks. The other one, she noticed him looking, but didn't think anything of it, she didn't remember if she had met him or not; or at least his name had escaped her for some reason. She was going to wait nearer the kitchen, and ask about maybe finished setting the table or something, when she noticed that Misery had sort of fallen asleep in the doorway. She saw Lance get up to help, and she turned to see if she could locate the coffee.

"I'll get it," she said as she located the coffee machine and poured a cup.

She didn't want Misery to drop it in her half asleep state so she handed it Lance as he got nearer. "Let me know if I can help with anything, like putting some silverware on the table or something." She was talking to the occupants of the kitchen at that moment, and she slipped out, but still didn't regain her seat at the table. Instead she was trying to make it look she was enjoying the view from the windows, oddly enough it was about the same view she had from her own windows so it wasn't like she was staring at anything new.

Before another word could escape Anna's mouth, Adrianna ushered her and Ricky into her bedroom with the necessary equipment to fix the latter up. Mayday! Mayday! Mayday! The alarm in Annabeth's head went off almost immediately, but any complaint she might have had would have fallen on deaf ears because soon after, the door was closed. She turned back to Ricky just as he picked up the jar of concealer, scrutinizing it.

"So what? do I just smear this shit on me?" She couldn't help the small chuckle that came through despite the frown she wanted to have on her face.

"Not unless you want your new nickname to be Patches," she retorted before approaching him warily. At the door, Annabeth had forgotten that she had stepped over a very important line when she touched Ricky earlier and decided to let him decide if he was going to let her get any closer. "You have to blend it in to your skin. I can help...if you want."

Once he heard the front door close (Anna had slammed it harder than she thought she did), Mason chuckled and hurried to smear the concealer she knowingly left in the bathroom on his bruise. As comforting as her concern was, it was unnecessary, especially given the fact that it was only one of his bruises that she saw. She didn't see what was underneath the shirt, which was a blessing. If Anna had seen any more than she already had, hell would have frozen over by now.

Chuckling at the thought, Mason put the jar away before shooting his sister a quick text that he would be downstairs soon enough. Cracking his neck on the way out, he checked over the apartment before shutting off the television, grabbing his keys and then grabbing his wallet. At the end of the day, no matter how protective Anna was over him, she couldn't complain about anything he did, even the one thing she didn't know. He brought in money for their apartment. That was the most important thing.

And the fact that he wasn't dying.

Yeah, that was important.

Satisfied, Mason made his way out the door and on his way to Adrianna's apartment. From outside, he could already hear someone fussing around and surmised that it probably was Adrianna flitting around like a mother hen. So, with an amused smirk, he walked through the open door, grinning widely at the other tenants who were already present.

"Hope you all didn't start the party without me,"
