I wanted this to be longer but it didn't turn out that way. Sorry it's short. Anyways, I hope you enjoy this just as much as I enjoyed writintg it! Which is a lot!

I do not own Alvin and the Chipmunks. I only own the kids, friends, etc.

Chapter One

Soft stepping noises echoed through the alley as a young boy walked past the high brick walls that surrounded him. He wore a dark purple hoodie and faded blue jean pants. His hair was a brown shade and eyes were a soft blue.

Stupid Mom! he thought. She loves my sister more than she loves me anyways! Why do I even bother to try?

A small tear slid down the side of his face. He didn't even bother to wipe it away. He let it slide down his face followed by another and another.

''Hey!'' a voice echoed from behind.

No. Please go away. he thought.

''Hey! Come on, man! I know you can hear me!'' it said again. The boy turned around to find his older brother running up behind him.

He was wearing a dark red hoodie with dark blue jean pants. His eyes were a deep blue and hair a dark brown.

''Go away, Aaron.'' he whispered. All he wanted was to be left alone.

''Come on, Dustin!'' Aaron half yelled.

''I said go away!'' Dustin turned around and started walking farther down the alley.

Aaron grabbed his shoulder and twisted him around so they were facing each other again. ''Why can't you just talk this out with Mom?'' Aaron asked. Dustin tried to get away but Aaron held tight to his shoulder.

''She won't listen anyways.'' he whispered back. Dustin swatted his brother's hand away.

''Mom and Dad are really worried about you.'' Aaron said.

''Then why didn't they come after me?'' Aaron thought for a moment before replying. ''Because I know where you come when you get mad. They don't.''

Dustin looked down at the ground. His eyes filled with tears.

''Please, just let me take you home.'' Aaron offered. Dustin grabbed his brothers hand and let Aaron lead him home.

''Autumn Nicole Seville!'' his mother yelled when they got inside the house. ''You know better than to run off like that!''

''I'm not Autumn!'' Dustin hissed between his teeth.

''Brittany, dear...'' his father began putting a hand on Brittany's shoulder to try and calm her down.

''Not now, Alvin!'' she yelled at her husband and pushed away his hand.

''Brittany!'' Alvin yelled. Brittany was taken back at Alvin's response. ''Give her.. I mean, him, some time to explain.'' he said softly.

Brittany's face went from angry to calm. ''Fine.'' she relpied. ''Now explain.''

Dustin shuffled his feet. ''Well, first off, stop calling me Autumn.''

''But that's your name.'' Brittany said and crossed her arms.

''No! My name is Dustin! Not Autumn!'' his voice began to grow louder. Alvin looked at his son with a warning glare.

''Hey, Mom, what's for dinner?''Brandan walked down the staircase following his sister, Sophia. Brandan wore a dark blue shirt and ripped jeans. His eyes were crystal blue and hair was light brown. Sophia wore a pink and white tye-die shirt and a pair old blue jean shorts. Her eyes were a crystal blue and hair a shade of brown.

''Go to your room!'' Brittany glared at her kids. They froze at the bottom of the stairs, took one glance at each other and ran back up the staircase.

''Aaron, go check on your brother and sister.'' Alvin said and nodded his head toward the stairs. Aaron did as told and ran upstairs.

''Okay, fine, Dustin!'' Brittany sat down on the couch. Alvin sat down next to her and Dustin sat on the couch opposite to his mom.

''Second, stop buying me girl clothes.'' Dustin eyes his mom.

Brittany grew aggravated. ''Ugh! Why can't you just be happy as a girl?'' Brittany screamed. Alvin put his arm around her shoulder. She shot a death glare toward him and he moved his arm.

''Britt, calm down.'' Alvin soothed.

''I'm not a girl!'' Dustin screamed back. His face shaded a red color, just like Alvin's did when he was angry. He ran up to his room and slammed the door shut. He leaned his back toward the door and slumped down on the floor.

Why doesn't she understand? he asked himself. I'm not a girl!

Dustin stood on his feet and ran to his bathroom. He shut the door and locked it. Dustin opened the cabinet door and searched for something... sharp. There it was. A razor.

He grabbed the razor and pulled his hoodie sleeve up to his elbow. He slid the razor blade across his arm. Blood oozed from the cut. He did it again and layed the razor down on the sink.

Tears fell from his eyes and sobs escaped his mouth as he held his arm. He turned on the faucet and let water run over his cuts. He looked through his cabinet again until he found a bottle of alcohol. He opened the bottle and poured some of it on his arm.'

''Damn!'' he cursed under his breath and put the lid back on. He put the lid back on the alcohol and rinsed off the bloody razor and put them away. He stared at his new scars and rubbed his hand over them.

He pulled his hoodie sleeve back down and went back in his room. He grabbed the remote to his TV and put it on a music channel. Music was a way he could get away from everything.

When he turned to the channel, he stopped and layed his remote down. He rested his head on his pillow and waited as one song went off and another came on to take its place.

A soft tune began to play from the screen. He layed and listened carefully as each word stuck in his head.
