Two Brothers and a Fight chapter 7A loud boom of thunder woke Alvin up from his nap. Trying to sit up, he accidently hit his head on the log. "Ow!"
Rubbing his head, Alvin looked out of the log. It was almost completely black outside and the rain was coming down harder than ever. Alvin jumped back as lightning flashed.
Having no idea how long he'd slept, Alvin knew he had to leave. If anyone came looking for him, they'd find him. He couldn't let that happen.
Slowly, Alvin crept out of the log. He gasped in shock as the rain immedietly started pelting him and started running. He couldn't see a thing, and he had no way of telling which way he was going. He was just trying to get away from the rain.
Unable to see, Alvin didn't see the cliff until it was too late. He fell forwards and screamed as he plummeted to the ground.
Fortunetly, the cliff was only about two stories high. Alvin landed on his stomach, gasping in pain. He slowly stood up, relieved nothing was broken, although every inch of him ached.
Trying to take a s
Two Brothers and a Fight chapter 6Alvin shivered as the rain continued pouring. He was lucky he'd found a hollow log - he'd been walking in the rain for hours. There was no way he was going to sleep out there.
Trying to ignore the cold, Alvin shifted his position a little, trying to get comfortable in the cramped log. His cap didn't make a good pillow, and the wood wasn't comfortable to sleep on, but it was better than sleeping in mud.
'Who cares how comfy it is?' he thought to himself. 'Simon was right. It's your own fault you're out here. You deserve a lot worse.'
Furious with himself, Alvin punched the bottom of the log as hard as he could. He didn't notice his fists slamming into the rough wood and punched over and over until he was too tired to continue. It was then he noticed his fists were bleeding from hitting the wood so hard.
Tears filled Alvin's eyes as he curled back up, trying to keep warm. He'd keep going after a quick nap. He had to get as far away as possible. He didn't want to ruin his family's lives a
Two Brothers and a Fight chapter 5Simon stared out the window as the police talked with Dave. It was storming now, and he couldn't stop worrying about his baby brother.
Alvin had left everything besides his cap behind. He hadn't even taken a pair of shoes. If Alvin was outside, he'd be caught in the storm. Simon didn't even want to think about what would happen then.
"And it's all my fault," he sighed.
"Simon?" Theodore asked, sitting beside his big brother. "Are you OK?"
"No," Simon muttered. "The police can't look for Alvin in this storm, and it's supposed to last for days. Alvin doesn't have that long."
Theodore teared up as he realized what Simon meant. He missed Alvin, too. He knew Alvin was a fighter, but even Alvin couldn't last on his own for long.
Dave came in as the police left and saw his two older sons sadly watching the rain. "They're going to do everything they can to find him. They're even going to put a notice on TV in case anyone sees him."
Simon sadly shook his head. "I didn't think he was going to ru
Two Brothers and a Fight chapter 4"BOYS, IT'S TIME TO GET UP!!!"
Simon yawned as he sleepily climbed out of bed. Theodore sleepily rubbed his eyes as he slowly crawled out of his own, still half asleep.
Simon glanced at Alvin's bed and sighed. He felt bad for what he'd said the night before. "Alvin?" When his little brother didn't answer, he continued. "I'm really sorry about last night." Still nothing. "Alvin?"
A sick feeling filled Simon's stomach as he yanked the covers off, revealing an empty bed. Simon just stared until he felt a piece of paper land on his foot. He picked it up and the feeling got even worse as he read Alvin's familiar messy handwriting.
'im sorree 4 beeng so much truble don look 4 me alvin'
Simon read it over and over, feeling worse every time. He heard footsteps coming up the stairs, but he didn't care. Guilt filled him as he looked over at where Alvin usually kept his cap, which was now missing.
Alvin had run away, and it was all his fault.
Two Brothers and a Fight chapter 3Alvin tossed and turned in his bed, unable to sleep. Exhausted, he looked back at the clock. Midnight. He sighed and pulled the covers back over his head.
'I'm sick of this and I'm sick of you' echoed through his head. Whimpering, he peeked back out at his big brother. Simon had avoided him all evening, and now he was asleep with his back facing him. 'He's right...' he thought sadly.
Tears filled Alvin's eyes as he slipped out of bed. If his brother was sick of him, then he had to leave. Making sure not to wake his brothers up, he carefully got a peice of paper and a pencil and wrote a note.
Placing the note on his pillow, Alvin glanced around the room he shared with his brothers. He wondered if they would miss him. Theodore probably would, but Simon and Dave would help him get over it. Dave would probably call the cops, but they'd eventually give up. Hopefully, they'd forget about him soon.
Alvin grabbed his cap and put it on his head. "Sorry, bro..." he whispered as he climbed out th
Two Brothers and a Fight chapter 2"Are we done yet?"
Simon groaned. "Alvin, you haven't even started yet."
Alvin pouted. "But I hate math! And I already did one!"
Simon looked at the paper. "76 + 60 = 7,660...?" Simon frowned at his brother. "You have got to be kidding me."
Alvin smiled. "Nope." Taking the paper back, he resumed putting in his answers.
Simon yanked the paper away. "Alvin, you're geting them all wrong!"
"So?" Alvin asked. "I'm DOING it, and I'm gonna turn it in. They didn't say I had to be right." He stuck his tongue out at his brother.
Simon closed his eyes, trying to stay calm. "Alvin...they don't have to say it. You know you're supposed to have the right answers."
Alvin rolled his eyes. "Well, if YOU want me to get the right answers, why don't YOU do it?"
"Because I'm not the one who hasn't turned in his homework for the past eight days!" Simon cried. "You're the one who doesn't pay attention in school!"
Alvin blinked in suprise. "Simon? You OK?"
"NO, I'M NOT OK!!!" Simon snapped. Alvin jumped back,
Two Brothers and a Fight chapter 1"ALVIN!!!"
Alvin groaned as Simon and Theodore immedietly looked at him. All three of them knew that when Dave used that tone, Alvin was in trouble.
"What did you do THIS time?" Simon asked, watching as his brother's face turned red.
"I have no idea." Alvin sighed. It was true. They'd just gotten home from school five minutes ago - he hadn't had time to do anything.
"Maybe the teacher called him." Theodore suggested.
"Why?" Alvin asked, then realized what he was in trouble for.
Sure enough, when Dave came in their room, it became obvious that their teacher had called - again. "Alvin, this is the eighth day in a row you haven't turned your homework in."
Alvin gulped. He hadn't just not turned in his homework - he hadn't done it at all. "Uhh...oops?"
Dave shook his head. "Do you have any homework tonight?"
Alvin shook his head right as Theodore answered "Yes."
Alvin glared at Theodore as Dave turned to Simon. "Make sure your brother does his homework tonight."
Alvin groaned. He hated hom
