once upon a marcel

I've known Marcel all my life. 19 years to be exact. He was never popular, but I didn't care. He was my best friend. We finish secondary school and planned on going to college together. That was before he changed . Not just a tiny bit. My best friend went from total geek to total hottie. My best friend Marcel Edward Styles was now Harry Edward Styles and boy did he the world by storm.


3. the note

Jamies P.O.V


 I stared in shock at the note that lay on my table. I'd been away in America for a month. The minute I got back I went straight round to Marcels. His mum anne answered and said that he'd gone away. She then handed me a note. I waited till I got home to read it and now it was timede

Dearest Jamie,

I know that by the time you get back I will have gone. The truth is I cant handle it anymore. I cant handle the bullying. I get bullied and I figured you should know. I just didn't know when to tell you. I hope you're not mad at me for keeping it from you. I've left Holmes Chapel, I don't know how long for. I guess it's only fair to tell you the truth. Here it goes...

I've changed, completely! Im no longer Marcel. My new name is Harry Edward Styles. Hopefully you'll hear of me one day and be proud of me. I'm going in for the X Factor. I don't know how far i'll go but I hope that however far I get you'll be happy for me. I only wrote this note 2 days before you were due to come home from America. I have some good news though. You have to promise not to tell anyone. I made it though the auditions! I can't tell you how excited I am. I also made it through bootcamp. Not on my own though! I got put in a group with 4 other boys. Louis, Liam, Niall and Zayn. They're all really nice. None of them know about Marcel though. That's our little secret. Im writing this note whilst packing. Im going to the judges houses! I hope to get through to the live finals. My audition will be aired soon. You can see the new me. I promise we'll meet again Jamie. I mean you're my best friend. You always have been and you always will be. You've helped me get through things that would be almost unbearable on my own. Please don't tell anyone though. They cant know. Im starting a new life away from the bullying. An escape route if you like. Marcels moved in with his dad. That's the story we're using. It works because my dad lives in America. Harry is Marcels cousin. His mum and dad died in a car crash so Anne adopted him. Please stick to the story Jamie, my new life depends on it.

Jamie Edwards, thank you so much for the amazing life you have given me. Its now time for Marcel to disappear and for Harry to step in the spotlight

Until we meet again Jamie,

Yours truly,

Marcel xx


I was kind of shocked. I switched my telly on and funnily enough X Factor was on. I watched a few auditions when I saw him. He had brown curls and eyes that shined so green, even though you shouldn't be able to see them properly on telly. He looked amazing. I wondered who it was and it was only when the name came up that I realised. Marcel. That was Marcel. He was amazing. As he said he passed the audition and he was right, I was proud if him. I stared at this boy on the screen and the tears sprang to my eyes as I realised. Marcel wasn't coming back was he.
