A SIMONETTE FANFICTION
I DON'T OWN THE CHIPMUNKS, OR ANYTHING TO DO WITH THEM.
Chapter 19: Alvin tells all:
"Jeanie, wake up. We've gotta get ready to go." Simon said as he woke Jeanette up with a soft kiss on the forehead.
"Five more minutes, please." Jeanette said as she pulled the covers over her head.
Simon rolled his eyes and chuckled, "That's what you said five minutes ago… If you're not going to get up on your own accord, I suppose I'll have to make you."
"You wouldn't dare." Jeanette said with a giggle.
Without a word Simon snuck up on Jeanette and pulled the covers off of her, which caused her to squeal, then he picked her up and lightly plopped her down on his bed. Then she pulled Simon into a deep kiss, but he knew this trick, he liked it, but there wasn't time for it this morning.
"Okay, any other day you could put something off by kissing me, but today," Simon said as he thought, "not today. Sorry"
"Fine," Jeanette said with a fake pout.
"Don't give me that," Simon said sweetly as he kissed her pouting lips. "Now get dressed, I swear, if we did things your way nothing would ever be done!"
"Yeah, yeah, yeah," Jeanette said as she grabbed some clothes and walked towards the bathroom.
"Jeanette!" Eleanor said as she saw her sister down the hall. But Jeanette darted for the bathroom door and closed it. She couldn't handle hearing Eleanor's goodbye yet.
"Well, that was kinda rude," Eleanor said quietly to herself.
"What?" Theodore asked as he popped his head out of his bedroom door. Lately he's heard a lot of interesting conversation from that hall.
"Oh, it's nothing; Jeanette was walking down the hall, saw me and darted into the bathroom." Eleanor said still a little confused.
"I'm sure it's nothing personal," Theodore said as he wrapped an arm around Ellie to comfort her, "You wanna help me with a 'going-away' card for Simon and Jeanette?"
Eleanor nodded kindly and followed Theo over to his desk, which had glitter glue, pens, and paper scattered all over the place, which made her giggle. He was the only boy she knew who could spend an hour in a craft store.
"What?" Theodore asked with bright eyes.
"Nothing," Eleanor said with a smile, "Well, we'd best get to work if the card is going to be done before they leave." And with that the two chipmunks each grabbed a tube of glitter glue and started to decorate.
It had been forty-five minutes since Jeanette had entered the bathroom and no matter how hard he tried, Dave couldn't even get her to answer him. Finally he gave up, "ALVIN, SIMON!" He called, and within seconds Alvin poked his head out of his bedroom door and a few minutes later Simon came up the stairs too.
"What? I was just putting the suitcases in the car," Simon said. He was a bit winded because he had run from the car to see what had happened.
"I would ask Brittany, but it seems she isn't even going to see you two off, anyway, Jeanette went into the bathroom over half an hour ago and still refuses to come out or even answer me when I ask if she alright." Dave said as he headed toward his bedroom, "Just get her out."
Simon looked at Alvin sourly; he was the last person Simon wanted to corporate with, but it was for Jeanette; and for her, he'd cross the seven seas. "Jeanie, please, we have to go, just, can you open the door?"
They heard a grumble coming from the other side of the door, "I guess that means no." Alvin said a little amused. He had never seen kind, absent-minded Jeanette put up a fight like this.
"Alvin this isn't funny," Simon said as he tried yet again to get Jeanette to come out and only got the same response.
"Simon, go find Brittany and take her downstairs, I have an idea." Alvin said as he thought of his plan.
"No, I'm not moving without Jeanette." Simon said confidently.
"Just please, trust me, you know I didn't mean to get you fired, why would I sabotage this? Please?" Alvin begged. Simon merely held up his hands in defeat and walked over to Brittany's door, knocked three times. When she finally opened the door he said nothing, he just took her by the arm and basically dragged her down the stairs in aggravation.
"Jeanette," Alvin said as he sat down against the wall next to the bathroom door, "I'm not going to try to get you out of there; I'm just going to be straight with you. Brittany loves you, but she doesn't want to show it. She thinks that because you got a boyfriend first that Eleanor will go to you for advice and not her. She thinks she's failed as a sister, which she hadn't until she pulled all of this nonsense. But trust me; she needs you to go. It will give her a chance to see that Elle will come to her for help and she'll get the chance to see how stupid she's been acting. I want the old Brittany back, the one I fell in love with, not this one who always acts like she's insane. I understand if you can't forgive her right now, but at least do this for me and Simon. Simon's not only doing this for you, he thinks I tried to get his fired which I didn't, but he needs this chance to get away, so if you could give it to him…"
A few seconds later he heard the lock on the bathroom door click, "Okay," Jeanette said with a soft smile, "I'll do it for Simon."
"Thank you, and if you could, ya know, maybe not mention this to anyone…" Alvin said, but Jeanette stopped him.
"Alvin, no one would believe me, they'd think I'd gone insane" Jeanette said as she started down the stairs with Alvin just behind her.
"Would you believe that?" Eleanor asked Theodore. They had both heard every word Alvin said and they didn't even believe their ears.
"No, I don't believe it and I heard it!" Theodore said with a smile, "Alvin isn't as strong as he seems, you know."
"That's so sweet, it was better than anything on a movie!" Eleanor said as Dave opened the door.
"Come on you two, we have to be at the airport soon." He said as he left the room smiling, his room happened to have a good connection to the hall as well.
