Chapter 7: A Sleepover with Simon
Alvin explained to Simon everything that had happened since the accident; Alvin getting hurt, how long it would take his tail to heal, him playing board games with his siblings, getting stuck inside a plastic cup, and both him and Simon getting stuck under the bed sheet. When he was finished, Chaz sat quietly taking in what Alvin had told him.
"Alvin, I'm so sorry about everything that's happened to you. But at least you're safe and with your family," Simon said showing Alvin that he felt sorry for him because of his injury.
"Thank you, Simon. The only thing I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to entertain myself. Resting on the couch isn't as much fun if you can't move around a lot!" Alvin replied, now starting to get bored. Simon could sense Alvin getting bored, so they decided to play some games.
First they played some simple games like I Spy, Charades, and What Am I. As the games continued, Alvin and Simon were having a lot of fun! Soon, Dave, Theodore, and the Chipettes all came back from the studio. When they saw Alvin and Simon having fun, Dave and the others went over to them, and asked how they were doing. "I'm doing fine, Dave. Simon and I have been playing some simple games since he got here," Alvin answered. "Well I'm glad that you are making Chaz feel welcome, and that you're taking it easy Alvin. In fact, Theodore, the Chipettes, and I have been talking, and we decided to order some pizza. Is that alright with you two?" Dave asked, looking at Alvin and Simon. The two chipmunks nodded their heads, and agreed that pizza was fine.
While Dave ordered the food, Theodore, Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor all decided to join Alvin and Simon.
"It's alright, everyone. I told Simon about my injury, and about what happened last night," Alvin said so his siblings wouldn't have to explain anything.
"What are you talking about? What happened last night?" Theodore asked, both confused and curious about what Alvin was talking about. In fact, now everyone was curious except for Simon.
"Oh, it was nothing special. I got up to get a drink of water, and after finishing my drink, I tripped and got stuck inside the cup… Twice! Then after Simon saved me, I tried to get back up on the couch using the bed sheet. Unfortunately, when I tried to leap onto the couch, I tripped and accidentally caused the bed sheet to slide off of the couch, and fall on top of me and Simon. We got out of the bed sheet, and then after putting the bed sheet back on the couch, we said good night to each other. Same as usual," Alvin explained.
