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.
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...?"
"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.
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.
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
Kidnapped chapter 21Simon waited at the police station with Dave and Theodore. After he'd been checked out by a doctor, Dave had tried to get him to come home and get some rest. However, Simon refused to go home until he knew Alvin was safe.
Theodore refused to leave his brother's side. He'd been so happy that Simon was back that he had almost crushed his brother in a hug. Dave had to pull him away so Simon could breathe.
"We got something!" an officer called. Simon looked up as he came out. "We finally managed to trace the cell phone they used to call us to tell us where to find you. They're in a warehouse about a two hour drive away."
Simon tried to go with the police getting into their cars, but Dave held him back. Instead, he could only pray.
Kidnapped chapter 20Alvin nervously watched his captors from the corner of the warehouse. The two of them were arguing, often pointing at him. He could tell they were arguing about what to do with him.
Hoping they were too distracted to notice, Alvin scooted to a broken bottle that someone had left. Keeping an eye on the kidnappers, he started to use the sharp glass to cut the tape from his wrists. After cutting himself accidently a few times, he finally got the tape off. He quickly cut his ankles free and pulled the tape from his mouth, spitting the cloth out.
Finally free, Alvin looked around and saw his kidnappers were gone, but the door was in plain view. Hope filling him for the first time, he ran to the door, nervously looking behind him to see if the kidnappers were there. Fortunately, a box was next to the door, letting him reach the doorknob. The door opened, and Alvin was finally free.
"HEY!!! HE'S GETTING AWAY!!!"
Alvin didn't even turn around. He just ran as fast as he could, desperate to esca
Kidnapped chapter 19Alvin whimpered as the car kept driving. Even if he hadn't been locked in the trunk, he wouldn't be going anywhere. His wrists and ankles had been taped together, and a cloth had been shoved into his mouth before it had been taped shut.
He had no idea how long they'd been driving. Over an hour, probably. Hopefully, someone had found Simon by now. That was the only thing keeping him from bursting into tears. He knew he'd probably never see his family again.
Finally, the car stopped. Alvin whimpered again, squirming in the small space. He could hear the kidnappers get out of the car and walk towards the trunk.
The trunk popped open and Alvin squealed as the trunk was filled with light. After being trapped in the dark for so long, the sudden light hurt his eyes.
The larger kidnapper laughed as he lifted Alvin out of the trunk and dropped him on the ground. "Have a nice ride, kid?"
Alvin glared up at him, muttering insults through his gag. His kidnapper laughed again and tossed the struggl
Kidnapped chapter 18Simon struggled against the ropes as he heard the car drive away with his brother. He should have known Alvin would do something like that. Instead, he'd let his brother surrender to their kidnappers.
They knew how to tie someone up, though. Simon knew he wouldn't be getting loose without help. There wasn't anything in the room to help him escape, either. He could only wait until someone found him.
He didn't know how long he waited before he heard a car drive up. Minutes later the door opened and police ran in. After making sure the cost was clear, two of them went to Simon.
"Are you alright?" one of them asked as he pulled the cloth from his face.
Simon nodded as the second one untied him. "Where's your brother?" the officer asked.
"They took him..." Simon explained. "You have to find him!"
"We will," the officer promised. "But right now, let's get you out of here. Your dad is worried sick."
Simon nodded and followed them out of the building, realizing it was a cabin. He hoped they'd
Kidnapped chapter 17The two brothers were woken up by the door flying open. The two masked men came in, looking at the still groggy Chipmunks. "Wake up, kids."
Alvin rubbed his eyes, still half asleep. It took Simon shaking him a bit to wake him up fully. Simon squeezed his brother's hand, trying to keep him being too scared.
"Alright," the larger kidnapper sneered. "Which one of you is coming with us?"
No one expected what happened next. Alvin, desperate to make sure his brother was the one to go free, raised his hand.
Simon stared in shock as the large kidnapper laughed. "Well, looks like we have a volunteer." He snickered as he grabbed Alvin's arm and pulled him away from his brother, ignoring the wince coming from his captive.
"Alvin!" Simon cried as his brother was pulled away from him. Before he could even take a step towards him, the second kidnapper grabbed him.
Alvin watched in horror as he started tying his brother up. "You said you were gonna let him go!"
"Don't worry, kid." the kidnapper holdi
