EpisodeEdit

So, here’s what you missed on Glee: The New Years:

Levi’s relationship with Dougie was pretty much outed at McKinley, and he began to lose friends on Facebook and was bullied at school, and even forced to kill himself. Crazy, right? Meanwhile, Daniel was kicked out of New Directions due to his ignorance towards everyone, but then decided to move to The Rebels for Regionals and now they’re pretty much against each other now. Later on, Chuck makes friends with new kid Denzil and they seem to have a close bond.

Well, that’s what you missed on Glee!

“I am really worried about Levi,” Carina said. “Yesterday was American Idol night and we were supposed to critique the contestants’ performances, and he didn’t even want to do it,”

Carina and Dougie were walking in the hallway talking, as Carina stopped to her locker and got her things for her next class.

“This is all my fault,” Dougie stood. “I’ve made him look like a fool in public; it’s all because of me,”

“Don’t go start blaming yourself again, Doug,” Carina said as she got her binder out of her locker, kissing a picture of Gunner on the side of her locker door, and closed it. “Levi loves you, I guess he’s just really taking it hard about the outing thing, he’s been gone for two weeks, and when he comes back, I’m gonna have to help him catch up.”

Cheyenne was overhearing their conversation on the side, trying to eavesdrop.

“What if he committed suicide?” Dougie asked.

Carina shook her head, “Look, Doug, I know Lev, he’ll come back as soon as things get settled,”

The scene stops back to Levi’s bedroom, where the night he had the knife near his neck and the mouse near the button to deactivate his Facebook account.

Levi’s mouse went closer to the button and suddenly the knife went closer to his skin, as Levi’s mother suddenly walked in and saw him.

“Levi, LEVI! What are you doing?”

The look of struggle and depression on Levi’s face made him burst out in tears.

“Sweetheart, sweetheart, put the knife down,” His mother said.

Levi shook his head and refused to do so.

“Hon, please, I’m begging you to put the knife down,”

Levi’s hands were trembling with anxiety and fear and he dropped the knife without a care on the ground and sobbed, and his mother went to him and slowly wrapped her arms around him.

“It’s OK, I know, sweetheart, it’s OK,”

Levi continued to cry and squint his eyes with tears streaming down his face.

Chuck went to Denzil outside. “Hey, bud, what are you doing?”

“Ah, just taking a little smoke,” Denzil said as he was outside and took a long puff out of a cigarette. “You want one?”

Denzil lent an extra one from his pocket.

“Ah, no thanks, man, I’m cool,” Chuck looked away.

“You sure man?” Denzil said. “It can release some stress,”

“No, man,” Chuck nodded. “You shouldn’t smoke like that anyway, it could affect your b0dy,”

“It’s cool, dude, nothing’s wrong,” Denzil said.

Chuck walked away, “See you later, bud,” He squinted and sighed.

To be honest, I didn’t want to take a smoke because I didn’t want to go back to the old Chuck again. I was a 13-year old kid, went to the store, stole a pack of cigarettes, ran outside, made a fire, took my first smoke, and then that’s when I got addicted.

At that time, I couldn’t stop smoking, and my parents forced me to go to rehab, and like Amy, I said, no, no, no. I refused to, but then, I went to rehab, and I prevented myself to be near smokes, I’ve been there, done that and had remorse for the rest of my life.

“One more week until Regionals,” Mr. Schuester walked closer to the kids. “We have to work hard with the Rebels on our hands,”

“We have big time trouble, Mr. Schue,” Lily said. “Levi hasn’t been here for two and a half weeks, and ever since you kicked Daniel out, he moved to the Rebel Headquarters,”

“Is Levi still depressed?” Mr. Schuester said.

“He’s still depressed after being gay bashed, I don’t think he’s coming back to this school anymore,” Carina said.

“Poor kiddo,” Mr. Schuester looked down. “Maybe I should go in his house to talk about it with him,”

“He wouldn’t let you in, he’s locked himself in the room and he won’t even come out,” Dougie said.

Carina looked at Dougie, and slowly pressed her hand to his hand. “It’s OK, Dougie,”

“Let’s not put ourselves down now, we can do this, I know we can,” Mr. Schuester said. “With or without Levi, you guys are amazing, Levi is amazing, all we can do is find a way for him to recover from his stress and we can bring it at Regionals,”

Dougie looked down and put his hands on his face.

Addison was in the library, and Gunner suddenly walked in. “Hey, Addy,”

Addison looked up at him, “Hey,”

Gunner looked off a bit, “Can I talk to you for a sec,”

“Sure, I guess,” Addison said as she continued to read her book, she put her book down with the open page. “Go on, speak,”

There was a second of tension that spread through the library. “So, I just wanted to say that I’m still not comfortable with what happened that week ago,”

“I would like to know why you’re still bringing this up, Gunner,” Addison said. “I apologize if I didn’t tell you at first hand, but you and Carina were together, and you seemed not to care, I asked for a second chance with you IN SONG, and you dumped me right on the spot, because of my issues with my stepfather,”

“While you were gone, Carina was there for me all of that time,” Gunner said.

“I understand that, OK?” Addison said. “But you must realize the person that asked for time with you, the person that had a crush on you, the person who even made love to you when at first I didn’t even want to,”

Gunner looked away.

“Do you know how that makes me feel?” Addison said. “I’m proud of your relationship with Carina, and you should be proud of my relationship with Karin,”

“But I’m just saying you could do better,” Addison got up and walked away from the library while Gunner looked back and sighed.

“I've been up three days, Adderall and Red Bull. This call is a mistake, there’s something strong in this water bottle. I hear you got a new chick, a spunky little Barbie doll, I feel so pathetic, but you still haven’t heard it all,”

“Forget that new girl that you love so bad, she’s not crazy like me, I bet you like that, forget that new girl that’s been in your bed, when your with her, I know I’m in your head,”

“I’m just saying you can do better,” Addison sang. “Always turned you out every time we were together,”

“Once you had the best, boy, you can’t do better,” Addison sang. “Baby, I’m the best, so you can’t do better, oh, oh, oh, oh, ohh,”

“Forget that new girl that you love so bad, she’s not crazy like me, I bet you like that, forget that new girl that’s been in your bed, when you’re with her, I know I’m in your head,”

“I mean, I’m just saying you can do better; always turned you out every time we were together,”

“Once you had the best, boy, you can’t do better; baby, I’m the best, so you can’t do better,”

“Baby, I’m the best, so you can’t do better,”

“Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,”

Addison stood on the side of her locker, shaking her head, and opened it to go to her next class.

“Guys, I really feel bad,” Cheyenne said as she sat in the room with Daniel, Charlie and Elizabeth in The Rebels Headquarters.

“Feel bad about what?” Charlie said. “What did you do?”

Cheyenne nodded. “New Directions really is going through a tough time now,”

“So?” Daniel said. “After how they treated us, you’d really expect me to care?”

“Look, I understand that we’ve been being evil to them lately, but they really need us,” Cheyenne said.

“So, what do you expect us to do, stop rehearsing and go back there and pretend like nothing happened?” Charlie said.

“No.” Cheyenne said. “If we win, then we’ll support them, but if we lose, we’re gonna go back,”

Everyone began to argue about it indistinctively. Cheyenne grabbed the gavel on the side and slammed it aggressively on a desk.

“Are you insane, Cheyenne?” Elizabeth said.

“No.” Cheyenne replied. “But I’m learning; I mean seriously, we’ve been acting very selfish, over being used as background, over Mr. Schuester, we’ve been acting like little kids, and that’s not what I wanted to grow up to be,”

Everyone nodded and shook their heads in disappointment.

“Guys, this is serious,” Cheyenne stood up. “Do you know that Levi hasn’t been here for over two weeks because he was being gay bashed?”

Everyone changed their expression. Daniel looked away, attempting to hide the sympathy he had for Levi.

“Now, Dougie’s worried about him, thinking that he may have committed suicide,” Cheyenne said. “That hurts a lot, my cousin was gay and he was teased and bullied in school about who he was. Then, he killed himself, and that really changed my life, and I can’t let the same thing that happened to my cousin, to happen to Levi.”

“And if you guys don’t want to help out, then maybe you guys are selfish yourselves, there has to be one single person in your life that you really love so bad that they just vanished.”

“I feel so selfish now,” Charlie shook his head. “I never really gotten a chance to speak to Levi, we could have been best friends,”

“I agree,” Elizabeth said.

“Guys, what is going on here?” Daniel said. “We shouldn’t be helping out the enemy, we have work to do,”

Cheyenne looked completely devastated when Daniel said that, a tear suddenly fell from her eye and she walked out of the room.

Elizabeth looked at Daniel, “What the hell was that for?”

“What did I say?” Daniel put his hands up, confused.

Elizabeth and Charlie both walked out of the room and tried to chase Cheyenne.

In the cafeteria, A.J., Drew, Shawn and Lily were having a conversation about Levi’s sudden disappearance from McKinley.

“I just want to punch everyone who really hurt Levi like that,” A.J. said. “Poor guy, he was really nice to me,”

“I should have treated him a different way than fighting with him over Dougie,” Drew said. “I feel so stupid now,”

“Well, either way, it was going to happen,” Shawn said. He took a sip from a juice box. “Things like this happen for a reason,”

“Yeah, Shawn, but Levi didn’t deserve to be hurt like that because of his sexuality, things like that may happen, but it needs to stop,” Lily replied back.

“It won’t stop,” Shawn replied back.

Lily looked annoyed, and A.J. and Drew looked away and sighed. Lily looked away. To be honest, I just don’t know what’s gotten into Shawn. He’s been acting really annoying for these couple of days, I just don’t know what’s gotten into him, but if he doesn’t stop, I’m gonna mark it the end of our relationship.

__________________________

Denzil was in Spanish class and he saw Chuck two desks far from him.

I’ll admit it, I have a crush on Chuck. I mean, I know he’s weird-looking and has freaky and curly hair, but that doesn’t end the fact that we have a strong connection. But in my point of view, Chuck doesn’t seem like the guy who would be attracted to me on first hand. I don’t really put myself in positions with other guys that date girls at the time. He seems like he’s already been in that situation before, so I won’t act on my crush on him. God, he’s just what I’ve been looking for, and I guess my hopes were brought down.


Chuck looked back at Denzil, and he smiled and waved. Denzil waved back, hiding his blushing expression.

Chuck turned around to the front, looking down. Why do I find Denzil so attractive? I mean, ever since we’ve met, we’ve strongly connected with each other. If I had a chance with him, I would be down.

Stop, Chuck. STOP. Don’t get yourself into another predicament. Bad enough, Anna’s back, and she actually trusts me after what happened between me and Dougie.

Chuck looked down and squinted his eyes.

Dougie and Carina were walking in the hallways of McKinley the next day. “Doug, that’s a great idea,”

“I don’t know, Cari,” Dougie said. “I don’t think it will work,”

“I’m sure it could,” Carina said. “ I mean, if we can just give the effort maybe it will,”

Cheyenne suddenly walked near them, “Hey guys,”

Carina looked up, trying to back out her actual feelings towards Cheyenne, while Dougie replied, “Hey, Cheyenne,”

“Maraj,” Cheyenne said.

“McLarson,” Carina backfired.

“So, what are you guys talking about?” Cheyenne asked.

“Oh, I was just explaining an idea to Carina about trying to bring Levi back,” Dougie said.

Cheyenne’s eyes quickly sparked, “Really? What was it?”

“Oh, it was just to have a rally about homophobia in school,”

Cheyenne scoffed, “Oh, I’ve been there, and done that before,”

“I remember, you did that with Daniel, right?” Dougie asked.

Cheyenne nodded, “Yeah, but it does seem like a good idea to me,”

Carina looked away. It was a good idea until you came, bitch.

“Could I help you guys?”

Carina tried to nod at Dougie. “Um, sure, if you want to,” Dougie replied. Carina squinted her eyes in disappointment.

“OK, cool, see you guys later,” Cheyenne walked away.

Carina tapped Dougie in his head. “Hey, what was that for?”

“Damn, Dougie, you know I don’t like her,” Carina said.

“Why, what’s wrong with her?” Dougie was confused.

“She hates me,” Carina said. “She tried to use me,”

Dougie rolled his eyes, “Carina, just work with her for me, please, for Levi,”

Carina looked down, and tried to say no. “Fine, I’ll work with her, but if she goes wrong, it’s on,”

Chuck walked into a store around his way, as he continued to walk, he walked inside, and grabbed a soda from the back of the store, as he walked to the counter, he went to the man, and gave him the bottle.

“That’ll be 1.50, sir,” the cashier said. Chuck went into his pockets and grabbed his money out of his pocket and slowly put it down on the counter.

After doing so, he suddenly saw a small shelf behind him, with a pack of Newport Cigarettes behind him. His head started to have pain, he began being stressed out. He had a sudden moment of being in the store as a 13-year old, and suddenly stealing a pack of cigarettes. He sneaked while the cashier looked away and suddenly ran with his friends.

Chuck shook his head, and he quickly ran out from the store.

“Hey, sir,” The cashier yelled. “You forgot your soda!”

Chuck leaned against the store’s brick wall, and began to cry, and he then stopped, and stood up, angered in, wiping the tears from his eyes.

“Can I have a pack of cigarettes?” Chuck said.

Chuck ran as fast as he could to his house, he saw in his garage, that his mother’s car wasn’t outside, he ran to his room and locked the door, he grabbed a lighter from the side of his bed, and sparked a fire and it began to react to the cigarette. Chuck slowly put the cigarette near him and wrapped it around his mouth to smoke.

The feeling that went in Chuck’s mind after he took one smoke, made him feel completely different again. As if he was able to be happy again.

He took another puff and blew the smoke from his mouth. “Is it my imagination or have I finally found something worth living for”

“I was looking for some action, but all I found was cigarettes and alcohol.”

“You could wait for a lifetime to spend your days in the sunshine, you might as well do the white line, cause when it comes on top . . .”

“You gotta make it happen!”

“Is it worth the aggravation to find yourself a job when there's nothing worth working for? It's a crazy situation,”

“But all I need are cigarettes and alcohol! You could wait for a lifetime to spend your days in the sunshine , you might as well do the white line.”

“Cause when it comes on top, you gotta make it happen!”


______________________________

Chuck took one more puff from his cigarette and he threw it in the trash can beside him and stuffed his Newport cigarettes on the side of his bed.

“It’s like he’s jealous of what I have with you,” Addison said to Karin as they were both at a table in the Lima Bean.

“How could he when he’s with someone else?” Karin shook her head. “I think he still loves you,”

“Pfft, I know that’s not true,” Addison shook her head and began to giggle. Karin gave her a straight face as she took a sip from the coffee in the decorated, Lima Bean-printed cup.

It was a sudden awkward silence. Addison scoffed. “You wouldn’t believe that, would you? I mean, really, if he really still loved me, then he wouldn’t have dumped me after my coma.”

“Trust me, Addy, I’ve dealt with the same thing,” Karin said. “I mean, what if he’s still not over your relationship you had with him, the way you’ve described what he’s done, and what he said , it’s so obvious that he wants you back,”

Addison looked away. “He should have been there at least to stick with me during the coma. He knew how hurt I was and how bad I was struggling with being beaten by my dumb-ass stepfather,”

“Why did your mom meet with him?”

“I have no idea, to be honest,” Addison took a sip from her coffee. “They met, and when we first met, he wasn’t as sweet as my mom said he was,”

“What do you mean?”

“Well, he was so for joking and teasing, he drank a lot, smoked a lot, after my mom married him, things got worse. He started slapping my mother around, and that’s when it came to me, he hurt me so bad, and I tried to kill myself, and yeah, that’s how it all started,”

“Why didn’t your mom leave him?”

“She did, he was caught in a lie, and he was sent to prison,” Addison felt water coming out of her eyes.

“Have you ever met your real father?”

“The last I could remember was me laying on the sidewalk, my mother holding me tight, and,” Addison began to cry and look away. “M-m-m-my father just drove away,”

“Don’t cry,” Karin looked down. “I should have never asked that,”

“No, Karin.” Addison said. “It’s OK, I’m being honest to someone I really love right now,”

“You are absolutely, positively amazing,” Karin wiped the tears from Addison’s eyes. “Don’t bring yourself down over 2 scumbags who hurt you,”

Addison sniffled. “I love you,”

It got quiet, and Karin smiled, “I love you too,”

Karin reached out for a hug. “It’s going to be all right, OK?”

“Hope so,”

She moved back, and Addison began to laugh, “Look at me, “

“You’re amazing, Addison, don’t let anyone tell you that you’re not.”

Addison smiled.

Denzil was in his room in Mr. Schuester’s apartment, laying down in his back and looking at the ceiling.

Mr. Schuester opened the door. “Hey, Den, what’s up?”

“Oh, nothing,” There was just an awkward silence.

“Are you OK?”

“Yeah, I’m fine, I’m just a bit depressed, I was thinking about what my parents said to me before I ran away,”

“What did they say to you?” Mr. Schuester sat down on the bed, as Denzil stood up.

Denzil sighed. “You really want to know?”

“I do,”

He took a deep breath, “OK. Well, before, I was pretty much a bad person in school, I mean I did all of my work and everything, but my behavior was just an issue.” Denzil looked away. “My parents hated me so bad, they said that they wished that I had died,”

Mr. Schuester felt sympathetic for him. “I’m sorry, buddy,”

“Yeah,” Denzil said. “They said that I was never going to amount up to nothing, they just wanted me gone, so I decided to leave, not to cause any problems. I had the freedom to do whatever, I was lonely, hungry, tired and sad at the same time,”

“Denzil, listen to me,” Mr. Schuester scooted to him. “You WILL amount up to something, you may have been acting mean, but still, you have so much potential to be anything you want to be in the future, your parents wouldn’t know who you truly are, you are amazing, amazing for being yourself right now, even coming out and expressing your feelings, and I’m going to help you through this problem by showing you how special you are,”

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” Mr. Schuester said.

“A rock star.”

“Really, a rock star?” Mr. Schuester said. “It does take a lot to be so, all you have to do is change who you are, change what you do,”

Denzil smiled. Mr. Schuester reached out to Denzil, “Come here, kiddo,”

They hugged each other.

“Thanks, Mr. Schuester, that really meant a lot to me,”

“No problem,” Mr. Schuester patted his back and walked out of his room, while Denzil laid back on the bed and began to sing.

“Never win first place, I don't support the team, I can't take direction, and my socks are never clean. Teachers dated me, my parents hated me, I was always in a fight cause I can't do nothin' right.”

“Every day I fight a war against the mirror, I can't take the person starin' back at me, I'm a hazard to myself.”

“Don't let me get me, I'm my own worst enemy. It’s bad when you annoy yourself , so irritating , don't wanna be my friend no more, I wanna be somebody else,”

Denzil was walking down the hallway, looking around him, and he went to the bathroom, to the mirror.

“Schuester told me, you’ll be a pop star, all you have to change is everything you are,”

“Doctor, doctor won't you please prescribe me something, a day in the life of someone else? Cause I'm a hazard to myself,”

Denzil continued to sing on the front floor in the choir room where everyone clapped and cheered him on. Chuck began to smile, and Denzil smiled back at him.

“Don't let me get me, I'm my own worst enemy. It’s bad when you annoy yourself , so irritating , don't wanna be my friend no more, I wanna be somebody else,”

“Don't let me get me, I'm my own worst enemy. It’s bad when you annoy yourself, so irritating, don't wanna be my friend no more, I wanna be somebody else,”

“Doctor, doctor won't you please prescribe me something, a day in the life of someone else? Don’t let me get me,”

In the band, a guy with an electric guitar continued to play during the instrumental break of the song. While Denzil was jumping around, and Mr. Schuester gave a proud expression.

“I’m a hazard to myself, don’t let me get me, I’m my own worst enemy. It’s bad when you annoy yourself, so irritating, don’t wanna be my friend no more, I wanna be somebody else,”

Everyone cheered for Denzil, and he smiled, proud of coming out and overcoming the hurt he’s been through.

Chuck’s mother was getting laundry from Chuck’s bedroom, however, she began to take off the sheets from Chuck’s bed, and suddenly, a pack of Newport Cigarettes dropped from the side of the bed. She dropped the sheets and picked up the cigarettes, she began to suspect what was going on, until a sudden shock hit her.

Later on, his mother sat down, while Chuck had opened the door. “Hey, mom, what’s up?”

“Can you explain this?” His mother showed him the pack of cigarettes.

“It’s a pack of cigarettes,”

His mother began to chuckle as she stood up, “Now you’re playing stupid with me, Charles? Why in the hell was this in your bed sheets?”

“Mom, why were you looking in my bed sheets in the first place?”

“Oh, maybe so I could wash your clothes, get rid of your smelly odor after football practice,”

“I never have bad odor,”

“Look, why was this in your bed?”

“It’s not even a big deal, Mom,”

It was silent, his mother shook her head. “This isn’t a big deal?” she said as she referred to the cigarettes.

“THIS is why me and you have problems in the first place, THIS is what can kill you, THIS is what made us force you to go to rehab, you’ve been sober for the past half year, and now you’re back to this, what’s the problem?”

Chuck got completely angered and slammed everything near the pictures of his living room.

“Are you crazy?!”

“Yeah, I am crazy, I’m crazy because of YOU,”

“Me, what are you talking about?”

“You’ve created me into a monster, you’ve always wanted me to be Mr. Perfect,”

“That is not true, Chuck,” Mom said.

“YES IT IS!” Chuck yelled out, and as he did, he began to stutter, and tears began to fall from his eyes.

“I’ve tried to be so perfect for you and Dad. SO PERFECT.” Chuck continued crying. “But you guys couldn’t accept me for what I was doing, nor being proud. But I’m not perfect to you, Mom. I never will be. Cameron will always be perfect to you. You and Dad treated her different than me,”

“Chuck, that’s not true,”

“It is,” Chuck said. “Don’t even say it, because you know it’s true, Mom. If Cameron had a pat on her back, I would get a slap on my head. If Cameron had 14 dollars EACH for her birthday, I would have 5 dollars EACH. If Cameron had a good report card, she would be treated to something, If I had a good report card, I would get compliments,”

Chuck’s mother looked down.

“And I’m—“ Chuck struggled to grasp his emotions. “I’m a piece of shit to you, I’m nothing, just a person who smoked,”

“Chuck, look,”

“NO,” Chuck said. “I want to say what’s on my mind! Everything has to be about you!” Chuck fell down to the floor. “I’m not who you think I am! I cheated, I hurt, I lied, I hit, I pushed. I’m a guy who lost his frigging virginity to a guy! I’m dating a girl and I suddenly have a crush on a guy. I threw a party and got drunk, I’m just stupid!” Chuck sobbed.

His mother slowly walked to Chuck, softly grabbed his hands and brought him up from the floor.

“Sweetheart, I’m so sorry if you felt that way, I didn’t know I was treating you so differently from your sister,” His mother said. “Sit down,”

Chuck and his mother sat down on the couch.

“Do you know what’s so special about you?”

“I’m not special, there’s nothing special about me,” Chuck said.

“Yes there is,” Mom said. “You have talent, and sometimes I may ignore you or put you out because I’m just giving you tough love, you’ve done some tough stuff, it’s time to just show you the things in life, I mean, your sister’s only 4 years younger than you are, you’ll be 18 this year, you’ll be graduating, your future is ahead of you.”

“How will I know that, Mom?” Chuck said. “How will I know if my future is waiting?”

“It is, and it will always be there, all you have to do is believe, but what is this about losing your virginity to a guy?”

Chuck looked away. “When you guys left that night, a person brought in a couple of beers at the party, but it pretty much gone wrong when I had sex with one of my guy friends, I didn’t want to tell you because I didn’t want you to think differently of me,”

“I wouldn’t think differently of you, absolutely not. All you can just do is tell me how you feel, what’s going through your mind, it doesn’t matter what you are, you’ll still be my son,”

“But I’m not really attracted to guys, Mom,”

“I know that, but things can change for a living, one day, you’ll be attracted to guys, one day, you’ll be attracted to girls, things happen for a reason, honey,”

Chuck wiped the tears from his eyes.

“Chuck, if there’s anything that’s on your mind, talk to me, OK?”

“OK,” Chuck sniffled and wrapped his arms around his mother’s.

“I love you, Chuck,” Mom smiled. “Now, what are you gonna do with those cigarettes?”

Chuck thought about it, and then began to smile.

“I thought I would give you these,” Chuck said to Denzil outside of the courtyard in school. Denzil took a look, and gave them back to Chuck.

“Nah, can’t have those,”

“Why not?”

“I’ve decided to quit,” Denzil nodded. “Yeah, Mr. Schuester taught me something that I can be whoever I want to be when I grow up, and I don’t want to ruin that moment, I’m going to focus on school and work hard to get where I want to be,”

“I agree, my future’s ahead of me, it’s almost there, so I’m just going to stick with what I’m doing now.”

“Another thing we have in common,” Denzil winked.

“Good to have a friend like you, buddy,” Chuck smiled. “Matter of fact,” Chuck got a guitar he had in the guitar case. “This is for you,”

The music began to play, and Chuck began to sing. “When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand and nothing, whoa, nothing is going right. Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there to brighten up even your darkest nights.”

Denzil smiled, he began to sing along with him. “You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am, I'll come running to see you again. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, you've got a friend.”

“If the sky above you should turn dark and full of clouds and that old north wind should begin to blow, keep your head together and call my name out loud. Soon I will be knocking upon your door. You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am, I'll come running to see you again. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I'll be there.”

“Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend? People can be so cold. They'll hurt you and desert you. Well, they'll take your soul if you let them, oh yeah, but don't you let them.” Chuck and Denzil all sang together.

“You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am, I'll come running to see you again.Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call, Lord, I'll be there, yeah, yeah, you've got a friend. You've got a friend. Ain't it good to know you've got a friend. Ain't it good to know you've got a friend. Oh, yeah, yeah, you've got a friend.”

Chuck and Denzil smiled at each other, while some of the crowd outside gave a round of applause, they both turned around in pride.

Daniel gave a disappointed expression to Cheyenne. “I seriously can’t believe you’re doing this,”

“Look, Daniel, it’s what I have to do, I’m making up for MY mistakes,” Cheyenne said. “You can’t be angry at me for doing the right thing,”

“But think of what they’ve done to you,” Daniel said.

“Shut up, Daniel,” Cheyenne said. “No wonder they kicked you out,” she walked away.

“You’ll regret this, McLarson,”

Cheyenne walked to Carina and Dougie, “You ready, guys,”

“Yeah, I’m ready,” Dougie said.

“Let’s go,” Carina said.

They all walked into the gymnasium, where there was a huge crowd on each of the benches. Principal Figgins went to the center of the floor, and cleared his throat.

“Welcome to the pep rally of the year, today we have three students who will present to us about homophobia,”

The jocks up close began to laugh.

“Here are the members, Douglas Eastwood, Carina Maraj and Cheyenne McLarson.” Some of the students clapped, except for some.

Dougie walked to the center of the floor, and then it was sudden silence that spread through the gymnasium, it was quiet and Dougie felt a bit nervous.

“H-h-hello, my name is Dougie, and I’m here to talk about homophobia,”

“Boo!” Some of the jocks said.

Dougie looked at Carina and Cheyenne, and they gave him a thumbs up for guidance.

“Well, um,” Dougie cleared his throat. “A couple of weeks ago, one of our students, as of my boyfriend, has been gay bashed here in this school, he lost a lot of friends on Facebook, because of my relationship with him. After being hurt by this, he decided to disappear, he never came out of his room and he just couldn’t take it. So he made an attempt to kill himself.”

“And at that point, it scared the hell out of me.” Dougie said. “To actually find out that someone I fell in love with, is forcing to hurt himself over problems like this,”

“Do you really think that’s fair? No.”

“This is why I think homophobia shouldn’t be allowed in this school.” Dougie replied. “It’s dangerous, it’s not safe, it’s harmful and offensive to some. I mean, we all have differences. Kissing a guy doesn’t make you gay, and kissing a girl doesn’t make you straight. It’s what we call experiencing.”

“If this is supposed to be a peaceful community, why are us gay, bisexual and lesbian students suffering from being harmed by many jocks and many cheerleaders,”

The jocks up top looked away.

“My boyfriend, is a very kind and gentle guy.” Dougie said. “He never hurt anyone, he’s innocent, smart, and talented, and he’s been treated like crap for these whole weeks, by losing friends on Facebook to being called a faggot in school.”

Carina then walked to Dougie and stood near the next microphone.

“I’m Carina Maraj, and I’m also against homophobia,”

“Dougie’s boyfriend is also my best friend. He was the first actual person that came out to me as gay, and I was there for him right from the start, and now I’m finding out things that he’s been going through, and it’s not right,”

“It’s hurtful, it’s disappointing to our community and this school overall,” Carina said. “It makes us look like fools.”

“Growing up in a strict community, my parents never allowed gay and bisexual conduct in my household, never,” Carina said. “And I seemed to be the one that accepted it, because I’m different,”

Cheyenne walked to the microphone. “I’m Cheyenne McLarson and I’m against homophobia.”

Daniel walked in on the side and stood there watching.

“When I was 14, my cousin went through the same thing Dougie’s boyfriend went through. He’s been bullied in school, hurt by many of his friends, teased and everything, to a point where he couldn’t take it anymore. So, he decided to kill himself by overdosing with pills. This really changed my life, and I’ll never have my cousin back again, because he’s been treated like dirt because of his sexuality,”

“We’re not saying that you can’t be homophobic,” Dougie said. “We’re just saying don’t take it out on the people who are homosexual or bisexual,”

“We must put an end to this situation at this school,” Carina said.

“Because we’re not getting nothing out of it but hate,” Cheyenne said.

“We have it made in this world, can’t we respect others for who they are and for not what they do or what sexuality they are?”

Music began to play, and Carina sang in the background. Dougie began to rap.

We some gun toting, church going, 18-wheel rolling, bag slanging, flag waving, at the dinner table praying, old school yard fighting, beer drinking, hell raising, hardworking, blue collar, earn it all due paying, illegal drug smoking, dope cooking, dirt dealers, on the corner bible preachers, hollywood dream seekers, muddy water swimming, Rock n’ Roll all the time, straight from the assembly line and that’s how it’s made!”

“And that’s how it’s made in the U.S.A, the U.S.A,” Carina sang. “A manufactured dream, a fraction of a thing. We got it made, in the U.S.A., the U.S.A., isn’t it great? How we got it made?”

“She’s been eating lies we fed her, should’ve been full but nothing’s helping, knew she wanted something better, still she took the second helping, now she’s well known, broke and cold, Fendi jackets, full of holes, no one knows,”

“That’s how it’s made, in the U.S.A. the U.S.A., it’s every mother’s dream to see her daughter on her knees, well we got it made, in the U.S.A., the U.S.A., isn’t it great? How we got it made, that’s how it’s made in the U.S.A.”

“In the U.S.A, in the U.S.A,”

The song ended and everyone clapped, even the jocks suddenly clapped, feeling bad for the problems they had caused. Mr. Schuester smiled, and the Glee Club stood out from their seats.

Cheyenne and Carina smiled each other, and gave each other a pound, and then Dougie hugged Carina.

Addison was in the Lima Bean with Karin, and she was smiling along with her. “I’m so proud of Dougie, he really cares for Levi.”

“Dougie’s got a boyfriend?” Karin was in shock.

“Yeah, but his boyfriend has been going through a lot lately, so he’s pretty much sad,”

“Aww,” Karin felt bad. “Hon, I have to go to the bathroom, I’ll be right back,”

Addison smiled as she walked away, she began to read a magazine, until someone suddenly came to her with a bouquet of flowers. “I can’t believe I’m seeing my Addy’s face again,”

Addison slowly turned around, and her eyes widened. “Dad?”

On the stage at McKinley, Chuck walked to the center of the stage. “I don't wanna be the boy who laughs the loudest or the guy who never wants to be alone, I don't wanna be that call at 4 o'clock in the morning, cause I'm the only one you know in the world that won't be home,”

“Ah the sun is blinding, I stayed up again,” Chuck and Addison sang. “Oh, I am finding, that's not the way I want my story to end,” Chuck and Dougie sang.

At Levi’s house, he laid down on his bed on one side, in dismay. His mother came with a plate of lunch on the side, but he shook his head, no.

“I'm safe up high, nothing can touch me, but why do I feel this party's over?” Chuck sang along with New Directions. “No pain inside, you're my protection, how do I feel this good sober?”

“I don't wanna be the girl who has to fill the silence,” Carina sang. “The quiet scares me 'cause it screams the truth, please don't tell me that we had that conversation, I won't remember, save your breath, 'cos what's the use?” Carina sang.

“Ah, the night is calling? And it whispers to me softly come and play,” Chuck and Carina sang.

“Ah, I am falling and If I let myself go I'm the only one to blame,” Carina and Dougie sang.

“I'm safe up high, nothing can touch me, but why do I feel this party's over? No pain inside, you're my protection, how do I feel this good sober?”

“I'm coming down, coming down, coming down, spinning 'round, spinning 'round, spinning 'round, Looking for myself, sober,” Chuck and Addison sang.

“I'm coming down, coming down, coming down, spinning 'round, spinning 'round, spinning 'round, looking for myself, sober,” Carina and Dougie sang.

“When it's good, then it's good, it's so good till it goes bad, till you're trying to find the you that you once had, I have heard myself cry, never again, broken down in agony just tryna find a friend,” Chuck and Denzil sang.

“I'm safe up high, nothing can touch me, but why do I feel this party's over? No pain inside, you're my protection, how do I feel this good sober?”

“I'm safe up high, nothing can touch me, but why do I feel this party's over? No pain inside, you're my protection, how do I feel this good sober?”

The song ended, and Shawn and Lily seemed to be nowhere in sight.

“Guys, where is Lily and Shawn?”

Lily and Shawn were suddenly arguing outside since it was after school. “I just don’t know what’s going on with you, Shawn, you can’t be angry with the fact that I’m right and you’re wrong?”

“Lily, what the hell are you talking about?” Shawn replied. “This is over what I said about Levi? Are you serious?”

“No, it’s not,” Lily said. “Everything has been your way and you’ve been complaining and yelling and crying over not getting what you want, and at a point, I believe you’re jealous,”

“Fine, maybe I’m jealous, of you. I’m jealous of you because you seem to get more credit than I do,”

“Shawn, you had a frigging solo at Sectionals, for God’s sake,” Lily said. “You’ve been performing lead with your own group last year, you can’t just expect to have the spotlight just like you did with the Troubletones,”

Shawn looked away. “Whatever, maybe we shouldn’t be together anymore,”

“Well, fine,” Lily shrugged and looked away.

Shawn quickly walked away and after that, a loud horn streamed out. Lily looked at Shawn again and her eyes popped out. “SHAWN, WATCH OUT!”

Shawn turned around, and all he saw was a bus, and then he suddenly blacked out. BOOM!

THE END.

Promo For "Hero"Edit

The most shocking...

"I just can't believe this is happening, this is all my fault," Lily said. As of the others feeling depressed with grief.

The most intense...

"What are we going to do now?"

Moment EVER on Glee.

"You're frigging trying to win me back when we just lost something and someone special?" A.J. yelled. "What the hell is wrong with you?"

Daniel looked down.

*"Resentment" plays in the background*

"With or without them, we have to win this thing, we've come too far to deal with this, we need to win this thing, and all we have is each other," Chuck said.

*Hero plays in the background*

The Rebels perform, along with New Directions.

Lily cries in a dress as she brings a bouquet of flowers to a casket.

And then, something happens....

"I can't take hiding this any longer, Chuck, I'm in love with you," Denzil said.

Chuck looked in shock.
