"The Tale of Simon's Positive Potion"
-Alvin Didn't Know-
(Open on the afternoon of Thursday, February 12 at Clyde C. Crashcup High School)
It was a fairly nice day at Crashcup High School where the chipmunks and chipettes attend the campus together and even share a couple classes together. In the mean time, it was after school at the middle school and valentines day dance was coming up and the boys and girls were going around asking each other to the dance.
"Hmm…," Simon thought as he walked down the hall with some of his friends from the science club. "Hey guys, are you gonna ask a girl to the dance coming up…it sounds pretty fun?" he added as they looked at the flyer hanging on the bulletin board. "Are you kidding me…I wouldn't miss this dance for the world…I finally get to ask Bianca out," Mark said as he talked about his crush that he's had on a fellow science club member. "And I'm gonna ask Lisa out, you know I wouldn't ask anyone else, especially how close me and her are…you NEED to ask Jeanette out Simon," Chris said to Simon as he spotted Lisa across the hall and smiled.
"Well, I'm not sure…there's the science bowl coming up and I've been studying all year for it…not that I don't want to take her to the dance…but that award means a lot to me," Simon explained as they walked up to his locker.
"Are you serious Simon…is being the science club president not enough for you but to put one of the best singers in the world today off for a stupid trophy," Chris said as he glared at him. "NO…IT'S NOT LIKE THAT," Simon said frustrated. "I've been working to get to the science bowl before they even announced the dance…give me a break guys," he added.
"Si…you gotta loosen up…your too much in love with science, kinda like how that gives us a bad name…stop making us look so stereotypical," Mark said with a little laughter.
"Yeah dude, you need to try and be like Alvin sometimes…be Mr. Cool," Chris added with a chuckle. "That's something I would try not to admit," Simon replied.
By then, they got down to their lockers and Simon picked up his books and turned around and saw Jeanette walking up to him with a pretty smile on her face. "Helloooo Simon," she called out to him as she walked up and planted a kiss on his cheek. "H-Hi Jenny…How's did your day go," he answered as he blushed and got a little nervous. "It went great…I got a A on my project on the DNA structure, the teacher said its one of the best 3-D models she's ever seen, thanks for helping me," she said with a smile. "Heh no problem I always enjoy helping you out you know that," he replied as he placed his books in his book bag and offered to carry her bag as well.
"See ya later Simon…remember this weekend," Mark said to Simon to remind him about the dance coming up as Chris left with Mark as well.
As they started walking towards the door to go outside, Jeanette accidentally bumped into the exit door. "Oops…I need to get Miss Miller to make an appointment with my optometrist about getting contacts or something," she said a little embarrassed. As they did, they managed to meet up with Alvin and Brittany who were coming from P.E. class.
"Heyyy, why if it isn't the bumbling brainiacs," Alvin said jokingly as Brittany bopped Alvin on the back of the head with a frown on her face. "Brittany…what was that for?," he questioned her as Brittany replied, "I haven't even began to start with you Alvin…we gotta talk at your house," "Perfect," Simon mumbled. "Hello Alvin," he added while not even looking in his direction.
By then, to get his mind off his annoying brother, Simon and Jeanette began talking about what they wanted to do for the weekend until she brought up the valentine's dance coming up in a couple days. "So Simon…who are YOU going to take to the dance this weekend…hmmm," she asked with the knowing that he was going to say her name. "Well…I'm not exactly sure that I'm going…I mean there's a chance I'm going…but the science club has the science bowl playoffs coming up and I've been working hard on getting my note cards together to study," he said walking while looking up ahead on him. "Oh…I see," she said as she pushed her glasses up on her face and continued discussing their day as Alvin and Brittany continued their discussion about the last date he missed.
"I'm telling you Brittany, I thought you said Saturday…not Friday…I was at home watching wrestling, then I fell asleep… I wasn't anywhere else, you know I would never fool around on you," he said while explaining why he stood her up.
"This is the second time Alvin…you just don't stand your girlfriend up two times…that just doesn't happen, I'm sorry but that's just bull…," she started to say as Jeanette nudged her in the side. "Brittany, remember your stress level," she reminded her. "YES…I KNOW JEANETTE…BUT IT'S HARD WITHOUT HELP," Brittany growled at her as she squeezed Alvin's hand hard to keep from blowing up at him.
"Hi guys," Theodore and Eleanor cheerfully said together as they walked up to the rest of the gang to go to their houses. "Hey, what are you two up to," Jeanette said back to them as she tried to convince Simon to go to the dance with her by walking arm in arm with him. "Heh what are you up to Jenny," Simon said with a slight nervous smile. "Oh nothing…Mr. Science Guy," she added with a cute giggle as the turned the corner to their street to go home. "Alright, everyone knows about the dance coming up…and I'm willing to bet I know who's going…c'mon guys spill it," Alvin said as he tried to change the subject hoping Brittany would forgive him for the past couple weeks.
"Well…that's a very good question Alvin," Jeanette answered after no one else would as she looked in Simon's direction. "I'm not sure myself…we have the science bowl playoffs coming up and I think it'll look good on my college applications…especially for ULA," he said while feeling different vibes about Jeanette now.
Then Theodore spoke up, "Well I think it might be fun to go…I think we all should go," he said. "Theodore's right I think we all should go because we'll be with the ones we care about…and maybe a little more," she said with a secret wink to Theodore. "Well I MIGHT go…I'm not exactly sure yet…I have some investigating to do later on," Brittany said as she glared at Alvin. Alvin took a gulp in nervousness as he walked beside her to the Seville's as they all went inside to say hello to Dave. As they got to the living room, Dave was coming out of his office about to go into downtown Los Angeles to run some errands.
"Hi Dave," they all said to him as they came in. "Hello everyone, you just caught me on my way out to run some errands, so Simon you're in charge while I'm gone," Dave said alerting everyone.
"WHAT?" Alvin said insulted. "He's always in charge and turns the fun time into a boot camp," he added.
"Alvin," he called him as he didn't want to hear his whining. "I'm only saying maybe you should shake it up a bit," Alvin tried reasoning with Dave. "ALVIN," Dave's voice grew louder. "I'm just saying that…," he added before being yelled at. "ALVINNN!!!" Dave glared. "ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT…WE'LL DO IT SIMON'S WAY…AS USUAL," Alvin responded as he went upstairs to his room while Brittany followed suit.
As she got to his room she slammed the door and walked up to him, "I'm beginning to get tired of you forgetting our dates Alvin…this has to stop and it will stop," she started lecturing to him. "Britt, I'm telling you I didn't do it on purpose though…I got the days mixed up…," Alvin tried explaining himself. "IM SUPPOSED TO BE YOUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY…NOT SOME STUPID WRESTLING SHOW," she yelled back at him. "I know that Brittany…people make mistakes ya know," he said as he tried to take back the last part of his statement.
"Alvin…you need to quit being so distracted and concentrate on the ones you love," she said as she began to lose faith in him.
"I didn't mean to say it that way though…," he tried to utter as she interrupted.
"I'm starting to not believe you Alvin…it's just not working right now," she said to him while backing away. "Britt please…the first time I forgot I was stupid…last time was pretty idiotic…but I swear if we go out tonight I'll make it up to you big time…I owe you with interest," Alvin begged and pleaded with her.
She sighed and looked at him in his blue eyes, "Alvin…I'm giving you one more chance…because I love you so much," she said as she hugged him tight then looked up at him again, "You have to stop doing this Alvin…if you want me to go to the Valentine's Ball with you, you're going to have to make some changes and commit to your priorities," she added as she opened the door to his room to go downstairs.
As she left to go downstairs, Alvin sat on the edge of his bed and look at the 8X10 picture of her. "I really do love her though," he thought he was saying to himself as Simon was leaning against the doorway of his room. "Yes Alvin…everyone knows that…but you're having a hard time keeping your promises with everyone as of late," Simon said as he walked into his room.
"I have a lot on my plate to do Simon…it's hard being the leader if you must know," he replied back with a frown on his face.
"You know it's not always about you Alvin…there come's a time when you have to stop focusing on yourself to help your peers and THAT will actually help you out too…remember when you forgot to pick up Theo from the county bake-off semi-finals and Dave had to stop working on the new CD because you decided to do a unscheduled autograph signing," he reminded him.
"But there we're a lot of people at the mall who wants my autograph…I couldn't just turn them all down…THEY'D HATE ME FOR ALL ETERNITY SIMON," Alvin answered back frustrated.
Simon sat on his bed as he shook his head, "You are more worried about how you look to your fans than you do about your own little brother…not to mention that I stood up for you to Dave because I actually care about you Alvin."
"Really…gee thanks Simon I was wondering why I wasn't in so much trouble that night," he said with a arrogant chuckle.
"ALVINNN…," Simon said as he stood up to storm out of his room. "You can be so selfish it's not even funny…you had better not be late for that date with Brittany…I'm not covering for you this time…you are going to have to learn to accept responsibility for your own action," he concluded as he walked out of his room to go to his laboratory in the basement to study for the science bowl.
Alvin then laid on his bed frustrated and insulted as he felt his brother turned on him. "Oh whatever…I care about people…I just have a lot to do, it's not my fault I bury my nose in science books for a hobby," he mumbled as he continued to lay there holding Brittany's picture until his cell phone rang.
"Hey Cubby what's up," he answered as he looked at his called id. "Nothing much Alvin my man…just wanted to say that new single you recorded was a major hit on the airwaves," Cubby said as the news just made Alvin's day. "Really…THAT'S FANTASTIC…but I can't stay too long because I have a date tonight with Brittany," he reminded him as Alvin really didn't want to screw up his last chance. "Yeah that's great, look we wantcha to come down to the studio, we need some ideas on a hot remix to send to the radio stations as an add-on to the rotation…whadaya say," Cubby asked him with persuasion.
Alvin looked at the clock on his bed table and replied, "Sure…why not…but only for a little while,"
"Great man…I'm telling ya it'll be fun dude, we got a lot of ideas floating around the studio already, all we need is you and we're all set," Cubby said happily as Alvin grabbed his cap and song book and went down stairs to get his car keys.
