Behind The Gel(Marcel FanFic)

Day after day Marcel was bullied. His reputation was strong set, the nerdy boy with the gelled hair. Although, he had a goal. And that was to prove all his bullies wrong. Alongside his best friend, Emma, he was going to show Holmes Chapel High School that there was more to him then just brains and hair gel. Those "popular" jerks were going to regret overlooking him because of his appearance on the outside. Marcel had a secret. A secret that would change his life, and reputation, forever.


2. Chapter 2!

"WHAT?!" Emma shouted in her best friend's face."WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?!"
"I don't know i guess i never thought it was a big deal. And I've always been to shy." Marcel sheepishly replied. 

"You're such an idiot Marcel." Emma jokingly nudged Marcel's arm. "So how is this going to help you prove your point?"

"I-I-I'm going to try out for the Xtra-Factor..." Marcel mumbled. 

"What? Marcel speak louder!" 

"I'M GOING TO AUDITION FOR THE X-FACTOR!" Marcel excitedly shouted. Emma stared at him in shock. "B-B-But Marcel. Like a million people watch that."

"I know, Emma. I know. But I feel confident..I think."

"Could you please sing for me? And I'll tell you if auditioning is a good idea or not!" Emma suggested.

"I don't know Emma.." Marcel began. "Come on Marcel, how are you going to sing in front of all those people if you can't even sing in front of your best friend?!" 

"Fine....You've got a point Em." 

"YAY!" She shouted jumping up and down.

" i go.." Marcel mumbled.

Isn't she lovely? Isn't she wonderful?

Isn't she precious? Less than one minute old.

I never thought through love

We'd be making one a lovely as she

But isn't she lovely made from love?

Emma speechlessly stared at Marcel in shock while he sang.

Isn't she pretty? Truly the Angel's bestBoy, I'm so happy, we have been Heaven blessedI can't believe what God has done
Through us He's given life to oneBut isn't she lovely made from love?
Isn't she lovely? Life and love are the sameLife is Aisha, the meaning of her nameLondie, it could have not been doneWithout you who conceived the one
That's so very lovely, made from love

"Am I that bad?" Marcel worried as Emma stared at him in shock.

"No-No-No-No-NO! Marcel you're amazing! That was just...oh my gosh!" Emma gasped.

"Really?" Marcel had a huge grin on his face.

"Yes. Marcel! You're going to do great! No way on Earth you'll get sent home! I bet you'll win it all!"

"Thanks.But i don't know about that..." He mumbled.

"Marcel! Think positive! You need confidence!" 

"Ya Ya. But what song should I sing?" 

"Sing Isn't She Lovely! That sounded per-fect!" 

"Alright. And it's special. It represents the first time you heard me sing!" Marcel exclaimed, causing Emma to blush."But wait. The audience and judges won't like Marcel. I need a whole new me; a likable me!"

"'re perfect just the way you are. Don't listen to the kids at school. You don't need to change to be liked!"

"But Emma, i want this. I hate my nerdy appearance!"  Marcel shouted.

"Okay. Okay. So how are you going to do this? What are you going to change?" Emma let out a sigh, hating her best friend feeling like he needs to change to be liked.

"First of all the name Marcel. That's the nerdiest name EVER. I want to go by my real name, Harry.."

"WHAT!?" Emma shouted, "Your real name isn't Marcel?! I'm your best friend dude! Why didn't I know this?!"

"Well...When we were little my cousin began calling me that...I'm not sure why...So from now on everyone just called me that. I was shy and didn't tell anyone my real name was actually Harry..." Marcel explained.

"Oh my gosh...Harry. That suits you. That does really suit you." Emma mumbled taking in Harry's features. "You know Harry? I'm going to miss you when you go away." Tears threatened to escape her eyes.

"Em, I'll call and Skype you everyday! I promise! Who knows i might not even make it past auditions! Oh and you're coming with me to the auditions! You have to! Please?" Harry asked with hope.

"Of course Harry!" Emma shouted. "There's no way on Earth I wouldn't go!" 

A smile spread across Harry's face; "Yippee! Now help me "improve" my look! I want people to like me for my appearance also! I want to have a bigger like factor on the show!" 

"Alright, Harry. Lets improve your look so you have all the girls drooling!" Emma laughed as she began Harry's makeover.
