The Makeover

Darcy's your typical popular girl. She's part of the drama club and she's the most known girl in school. She likes to party and have a good time with her friends. Marcel on the other hand your typical geek. He's part of the science and math club and he's the most bullied kid in school. He likes to stay at home where no one can hurt him.

What happens when Darcy gets paired up with Marcel on a school project and later gets dared to give him a makeover? Will Marcel break from his shell or will he never change?



Darcy’s POV

My eyes flickered open from the bright light that was streaming into the room. I shielded my face with my hand and noticed a large gash on my arm. It was bleeding a little and most of the blood was on my clothes and on the mattress. I couldn't even remember what happened after Josh threw me over his shoulder. He could've raped me for all I know and I don’t remember a thing.

I sat up and looked around. It was just the dirty mattress and the small window. Nothing else was in the room.

I got up and could feel that my legs were aching. I stretched a bit then took a step out of the room. I walked down the hallway and started to hear voices.

“If you ever let her out of your sight again Josh you’re dead. Got it?”

I hid behind a wall so I could hear more of their conversation.

“Okay, but it wasn't my fault! She bit me! Really hard too.”

Marley rolled her eyes. “Oh for heaven’s sake Josh, who cares?” She exclaimed.

Josh sighed and stuffed his hands in his pockets.

“So what do you want me to do now?”

“Bring her in. It’s time to call Harry.”

Harry’s POV

I ran my fingers through my hair as I waited for a response at Darcy’s door.

She hadn't come to school today or yesterday so I had to make sure everything was alright. I hope she isn't ignoring me on purpose.

The door swung open revealing Darcy’s younger sibling, Drew.

“Hi.” He smiled.

I bent down to his level and returned the smile.

“Hello. Is Darcy home?” I asked

“No, she hasn't been home since yesterd-”

“Drew didn't I tell you not to open the door to strangers?” A voice broke out. The door opened even more and Darcy’s father appeared.

“Harry, it’s so nice to see you. What brings you here?” Darcy’s father was holding a plate in hand has he wiped the water droplets off.

“Is Darcy home?” I repeated. He shook his head.

“She told me that she was going to stay over at her friend Abby’s house after her audition than go to school from there. Something about a science project?”

I furrowed my eyebrows. “But she was with me after the audition and she never mentioned anything about staying with a friend. In fact, Darcy and Abby haven’t talked for weeks.”

It was his turn to furrow his eyebrows. “Then where did she go when you guys weren't together?”

I could feel a sudden gust of wind tickle the back of my neck. I started to shiver and felt a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.

“I don’t know.”

Darcy’s POV

I tried to be as quiet as I could to get to the door as Marley and Josh continued to talk but it turns out that I can’t do anything quietly. The door had so many locks on it and once I got the third lock off Josh stepped out of the living room and noticed what I was trying to do.

“Trying to escape already?” I stopped everything I was doing and spun around.

“Nope, just checking your locks. Everything seems to be perfectly in place.” I spat.

He glared at me before grabbing my upper arm tightly.

“Are you trying to make me angry? Do you want me to repeat what happened last night?”

I could feel my heart rate pick up.

“Why are you doing this Josh?”

His eyes narrowed. “You’ll never understand.” He spoke before dragging me to Marley.

“This was exactly what I was talking about Josh! You need to keep an eye on her.”

Josh sighed as he stared at Marley. He looked sad and depressed. I almost felt sorry for him.

“Anyways, here’s your phone Darcy. You’re gonna tell Harry that you were with Abby and you went clubbing. You got drunk and cheated on him. That’s why you didn't go to school and you were avoiding him. You also have to tell him that you’re breaking up with him because he isn't good enough, and tell him you don’t love him.”

I stared at her with a blank expression. How could I ever say those things to Harry? I would never hurt him purposely and I wouldn't ever break up with him. I love him too much.


“You heard me. Call him and make it quick.”

Harry’s POV

After I left Darcy’s place, I walked home. I had no clue as to what was going on. Darcy doesn't do things randomly. She plans things out. I know her, or do I?

I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket and saw that it was Darcy calling. I couldn't help but smile when I saw her picture. I pressed the answer button and brought my phone up to my ear.

“Oh god, you don’t know how worried I've been Darcy. I thought you were ignoring me on purpose.”

“But I am.” Her voice sounded different, like she had been crying.

“W-what?” My voice cracked.

“I’m ignoring and avoiding you for a reason Harry. This isn't a coincidence." She spoke bluntly.

"What are you talking about Darcy? Why would you ignore me?"

She suddenly went very quiet.

"Darcy, what's going on?"

"I'm breaking up with you Harry."

I almost dropped my phone on the ground.

"I'm sorry Harry, but it's over. I cheated on you and honestly you're not good enough. I finally realized that you're a loser, a geek and I can do way better than you. Forget everything we ever had because I don't love you. Bye."

The sound of the dial tone rang through my mind long with 'you're a loser' and 'I don't love you'.

Louis was right. Darcy was bound to break my heart all over again. D
