Kidnapped chapter 25Two days later, Alvin was finally released from the hospital. The doctors had kept him longer to make sure there was no lasting damage from the concussion and coma. Fortunately, despite for the nasty cut on his head, he was fine. However, they did tell Dave to make sure he took it easy.Kidnapped chapter 25 by ~chibialvin
To Dave's surprise, it was easier than he thought it'd be. Instead of wanting to play outside, Alvin stayed inside watching cartoons. Other than that, he spent most of the time asleep.
One night, a week after Alvin came home, Dave woke up to screaming. He ran upstairs, afraid something terrible was happening. Instead, he found something else.
Alvin was sitting up in bed, shaking like a leaf and crying. Simon was next to him, trying to calm him down. After several minutes, Alvin climbed out of bed and into his big brother's bed.
Dave smiled and went back downstairs.
Kidnapped chapter 24Someone was stabbing him in the skull. At least, that was Alvin's first thought as he started regaining consciousness. He tried opening his eyes, but they were too heavy. He had no idea where he was or what was going on. "Did...did I die...?"Kidnapped chapter 24 by ~chibialvin
"You're not dead, Alvin." a familiar voice laughed. Alvin tried to figure out who it was, but was too tired to think that hard. "Wake up, silly."
"I can't," Alvin muttered, hoping they'd go away. "Wanna sleep..."
"Sleep?" the voice asked. "You've been asleep for two days!"
"Wha?" Alvin's eyes flew open and a bright light blinded him. He moaned and covered his eyes, whimpering softly.
"Alvin?" the voice said quietly, now sounding a lot closer. "Are you alright?"
This time, Alvin recognized the voice. "Simon...?" He slowly opened his eyes again, this time seeing his brother next to him.
"Hey," Simon smiled. "You had us worried."
Alvin slowly reached up and felt a bandage wrapped around his head. "Wha happened...?"
"You hit your head." Dave told him,
Kidnapped chapter 23"What happened?" Simon cried. They had just heard that the kidnappers had been arrested, but Alvin was being rushed to the hospital.Kidnapped chapter 23 by ~chibialvin
The officer sighed. "One of the kidnappers was choking him when we went in. He let him go, but he hit his head pretty hard. He was unconscious and bleeding when we reached him."
"Is he going to be alright?" Dave asked.
"It's hard to tell," the officer explained. "Head wounds bleed a lot, so it's hard to tell how bad it really is. The main concern is how hard he hit his head. If he hit it too hard, there could be permanent damage."
Theodore's eyes filled with tears. He didn't know what that meant, but he knew it was bad from the look on Dave's face. "Is he gonna die...?"
Instead of answering, the officer turned to Dave. "We'll drive you all to the hospital."
"Thank you." Dave said softly. Simon couldn't say anything. He could only think about what had happened to his brother.
Kidnapped chapter 22Alvin had no idea how long he'd been lying on the floor. His arms were killing him with the elbows touching. He couldn't even sleep due to the pain.Kidnapped chapter 22 by ~chibialvin
Finally, the large kidnapper came over with a knife. Alvin's eyes widened with fear, but he only cut through the duct tape and rope pinning his elbows together. "I guess you've been like that for long enough." He uncapped a water bottle and pulled the tape off Alvin's face and untied the cloth, letting Alvin spit the rag out for the second time. "Drink."
Alvin gulped the water down, not having had anything to eat or drink since the night before. He was hoping he'd get something to eat too, but the kidnapper picked the rag back up. "Open up."
Alvin whimpered and shook his head. He'd had that thing in his mouth all day. He didn't want it back in again. "No..."
The kidnapper growled and grabbed Alvin's hair, tugging painfully. Alvin cried out and the masked man went to shove the rag into his mouth. Without thinking, Alvin bit his hand, desper
