Fic: ‘Tis the Season: Something nice!  
Title: ‘Tis the Season: Something nice!
Fandom: Alvin & the Chipmunks
Rating: (G)
Time Period: After the first movie.
Summary: Alvin does something nice.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

I wanna hide. Why?

Something's gonna blow up!

A ball of tangled lights and green cord sits before them; one of them has his hands on his hips. “That's what I found.” His foot taps, impatiently. “It's given me an idea.”

“Alvin ...” Simon warns.

“I wanna do something for Dave. Putting up the lights,” he continues, in Simon's direction, “will be nice for Dave.”

Simon pushes his glasses back. “How are you going to put them up?”

Theodore coughs beside Alvin; Simon's gaze zeros in on him while keeping Alvin in his peripheral vision. Someone had to keep an eye on him. “We could use the engine from the lawn mower.”

“What lawn mower?”

“This one!” And Alvin marches into another room; Theodore and Simon trail after him. “I found it when I was cl----”

“Snooping!” Simon proclaims and Theodore shakes his head.

“We put the engine on a toy plane,” Theodore interrupts before anything is said, “put up the lights and put the engine back. Easy!”

“Easy?” Simon raises an eyebrow. “Do you know how to put a lawn mower engine on a plane?” He pauses. “Do we have a plane?”

Alvin grins; he can almost see the wheels spinning in Simon's brain. “Nope! That's why we thought of you!”

Simon pushes up his sleeves; Theodore runs to fetch paper and crayon. Alvin grins.

Later, Dave walks into his living room. It sparkles in the dark; the multicoloured lights dance.

Then he steps on something. He looks down.
