Love Hurts by Nazareth

Those are the dangers of love unfortunately, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. In John's case, it kinda of blew up in a cacophony of hurt feelings and a broken heart that never really fully healed. John wants to move on from this but the incident left him without his (at the time) best friends and the love of his life. It sent him plunging into a depression that lasted nearly three years. So yea, needless to say; love certainly hurts. Will John be able to go through with The Battle of The Bands contest? Stay tuned to find out!


OMG I got the feels Wow Iris is a great friend. And wow the ex does seem like quite a jerk. Seems like a lot of effort to treat John like this. I hope that it's all just a misunderstanding. Really sad to see this sweet guy out of sorts.
@sethtriggs: I totally agree, was kinda hard writing this arc. However everything will be clear and explained soon! Poor John won't be sad forever rest assured!
Let it out, John. You're safe here.
@Gryph: John appreciates any and all hugs!
@Jim Nickabocker: Hug the cinnamon roll, too pure for this world! *Glomps!*
That sliver in the heart As much as John was hurt, seemed there was a part of him that hoped that things would be smoothed out, that his relationships would go back to normal and everything would be hunky dory.

Unfortunately, that's not what happens. Seems like John fell head over heels over the persona that Heather was originally presenting. Then with fiscal responsibility pulled away, she could drop the mask. It betrayed John, cutting him deeply.

And while he knows it was a lie, he still finds himself in love with that mask.
@Gildedtongue: Perfectly put Gildy <3
Oh please. PLEASE,just give me one thing. PLEASE tell me that even if John loses, Karma bites Heather in the rump so hard she'll be pooping Karma's teeth for a month. Just give me that.
@Lady Madelin: Unfortunately in the real world, there are people who act just like Heather who rarely if at all, face any consequences.
That being said, this ain't the real world! It's RTS baby!
I know that they're singing an original song... but at some point they really should perform "Since You've Been Gone" by Weird Al Yankovic.
@Stephen: Huh... I may actually take that song into consideration! XD
