Chapter 12-

The next week went by very slowly for the Seville family, especially Simon. He absolutely hated being in that stupid hospital, and not being able to walk very well since his waist was sore from being stabbed. Dave and the doctors had to help him get around when he needed to get up for reasons such as using the bathroom. But by Friday, his waist was beginning to feel much better, and Saturday evening he left the hospital and went home at last.

"So, Si," Dave said when they got home, "do you think you'll be up to sing at that concert tomorrow night?"

"I guess so," Simon replied.

"Yes!" Alvin cheered. "Now I don't have to sing with Britt! That stupid…"

"Alvin, that's enough," Dave said sternly. Alvin groaned.

"Well I don't think the song we're gonna sing really fits her anyway," Simon added, "its to 'guyish'." Alvin nodded.

"I'm gonna make dinner so I'll call you guys when its done," Dave said as he went into the kitchen to make dinner. Alvin, Simon, and Theodore went upstairs to play.

"So whatcha guys wanna do?" Alvin asked playfully.

"I know!" Theodore said cheerfully. "Let's play Pictionary!

"No way!" Alvin argued. "I wanna play Twister!"

"Oh no," Simon protested, "never again! Do you recall what happened last time?"

Flashback

Dave, the Chipettes, Alvin, and Simon were playing Twister in the living room one evening. Theodore was spinning the spinner.

"Okay, Simon," Theodore said as he spun the spinner, "…right hand red!" Simon did as he was instructed. The six of them were practically tied in a knot, and laughing uncontrollably.

"Dave, left foot green!" Theodore called out after spinning the spinner again. Everyone finally stopped laughing, but Alvin was still laughing hysterically.

"Jeanette, Left foot…"

"I PEED!" Alvin shouted.

"AAH!" everyone shouted and scattered off of the mat. Alvin got up laughing and holding himself as he ran for the bathroom as fast as he could.

End of Flashback'

"Oh come on," Alvin whined, "I didn't actually pee, I made it to the bathroom."

"Well I'm not about to risk it happening either way," Simon replied. Alvin sighed.

"Fine."

"So we're playing Pictionary?" Theodore asked hopefully.

"Yes," Simon replied.

"Yay!" Theodore happily went to the closet and pulled out the Pictionary board game.

"I call first!" Alvin immediately called out.

"I'm second!" Simon called out.

"Aw, I don't wanna be last," Theodore whined.

"Suck it up!" Alvin snapped.

"Alvin," Simon scolded.

"Okay I'll go last," Theodore sighed reluctantly. Alvin rolled the dye, he got a two and an 'eyes closed'. He drew a card; it said "House on Hill". Simon flipped over the timer as Alvin began to draw a house on a hill with his eyes closed.

"Is it…a booger?" Theodore guessed.

"No."

"Could it be…a puddle of urine?"

"No."

"Dog poo?" Theodore guessed.

"What?" The time ran out, and Alvin opened his eyes, and gasped at how horrible his drawing was. "Um, it was supposed to be a house on a hill."

"That was horrible," Simon said with a blank look.

"You're telling me," Alvin responded.

"FELLAS! DINNER!" Dave called.

The next night, the boys were getting ready to perform. Alvin and Simon stepped up to the two mics in the front and prepared to sing.

Alvin: "Well a man come on the 6 o'clock news
Said somebody's been shot, somebody's been abused
Somebody blew up a building
Somebody stole a car
Somebody got away
Somebody didn't get too far yeah
They didn't get too far"

Simon: "Grandpappy told my pappy, back in my day, son
A man had to answer for the wicked that he done
Take all the rope in Texas
Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys
Hang them high in the street for all the people to see that"

Both: "Justice is the one thing you should always find
You got to saddle up your boys
You got to draw a hard line
When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune"

Simon: "We'll all meet back at the local saloon"

Both: "We'll raise up our glasses against evil forces
Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses"

Alvin: "We got too many gangsters doing dirty deeds"

Simon: "Too much corruption and crime in the streets"

Both: "Its time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground"

Simon: "Send them all to their maker and he'll settle 'em down."

Alvin: "You can bet he'll set 'em down"

Both: "Justice is the one thing you should always find
You got to saddle up your boys
You got to draw a hard line
When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune"

Simon: "We'll all meet back at the local saloon"

Both: "We'll raise up our glasses against evil forces
Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses"

Both: "Justice is the one thing you should always find
You got to saddle up your boys
You got to draw a hard line
When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune"

Simon: "We'll all meet back at the local saloon"

Both: "We'll raise up our glasses against evil forces
Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses"

"I…I gotta…I GOTTA PEE!" Alvin shouted as he ran backstage to find a toilet. Simon rolled his eyes and he and Theodore walked backstage in total humiliation.
