A/N: I would like to apologize again for the long wait. I'm in school to be a child care provider and I've been swamped with projects. I would also like to apologize for not updating 'What's Wrong with Simon?' in a good while. That story sort of...lost its flow. But don't worry. I'll find a way to finish it.
Dave and Alvin were now back in their regular clothing. Alvin had fallen asleep a few minutes afterward. After he and Dave were signed out, Dave carefully gathered his son in his arms and cradled him.
"You ready to go home, buddy?" Dave asked softly.
Alvin stirred in Dave's arms, but didn't wake.
Dave smiled and placed a kiss on the child's forehead. Then he left the room, careful not to bump Alvin's head against the wall.
Simon, Theodore, and the girls were watching TV in the den while Miss Miller made lunch.
"You guys think Alvin and Dave are OK?" Eleanor asked.
Then as if to answer her question, the front door opened.
"We're home" came a familiar voice.
The kids knew that voice. "DAVE!" they exclaimed and hurried to meet him. He had a sleeping Alvin in his arms.
"How's Alvin?" Brittany asked.
"Is he OK?" asked Simon.
"Relax kids. He's all right" Dave said.
Miss Miller also came to meet Dave. "How about you?" she asked.
"I'll live. I have to keep the bandages on for a few more days though" Dave answered.
"Oh, before I forget; the police station called. Your brother's been put in a rehab center" said Miss Miller.
"For how long?" Dave asked.
"They're planning on keeping him there for about a month, give or take" Miss Miller said.
Dave walked into the boys' room and walked over to Alvin's bed. As carefully as he could, Dave placed Alvin in bed. He would change the child into his pajamas later.
Dave took a seat on the bed. As Alvin lied there in a peaceful slumber, Dave gently stroked the child's hair and smiled. He gently placed a kiss on Alvin's cheek and quietly left the room to let his son sleep.
A/N: This chapter is rather short, but it's the conclusion. In the final sequel to this series, Leonard comes back, but not for Alvin. He's coming back to...apologize? Will Dave forgive him? What about Linda or even Alvin? Stay tuned and it should be up soon. Does anyone have an idea as to what I should call it? I was thinking 'The Nightmare Ends' but I don't know if I should call it that.
