Well it finally happened I hit a wall so I thought bring over one of my old stories untill inspiration strucks me
At a blood drive center in West Las Vegas Ava was getting some blood drive sign to put up at some of the hotels on the strip. Ava started this job two years ago after a drunk driver hit her she was told if she hadn't had blood transfusions she would of died so she donates her time to the Las Vegas chapter of The American Red Cross to get the word out on blood drives. "Hey Ava so which casinos are you going to this time?". "The Mirage, MGM, Treasure Island, and Planet Hollywood"she replied. "Don't forget The Luxor Felix Rappaport always comes to help out or donate so go there" as she left. At The Luxor Criss was filming an episode as Felix watched from a far. Felix turned his head and saw Ava walk in. "Ava how are you?" giving her a hug. "I'm good Mr. Rappaport do you mind if I hang some of these around the casino" giving him one. "Sure and I know three places you can hang them. JD come here"Felix called out.
JD, Criss's older and wiser brother walked over. "Yea Felix what's up?". "I'd like you to meet Ava Borgot she volunteers at the Las Vegas chapter of the Red Cross". "Nice to meet you" as they shook hands. "I was wondering if I could hang one of these up in the production office, The Mindfreak Store, and the Believe Store" she asked. "Sure come with me"JD replied. JD brought Ava in and she put one in the front of the production office window. "Thanks I hope some of Criss's fans show up"she said. "Well I'll get some of the crew and maybe Criss to donate". "That would be cool JD thanks again"Ava replied and left.
"Hmmm blood drive July 17th at the Excalibur ball room B" Criss read. "Thinking of donating Criss?"JD inquired when he saw his brother reading the sign. "You know me and needles I still hate them"Criss replied as he hid a yawn. "Been partying late again" when he saw Criss yawn. "Very funny JD and where's Costa I haven't seen him all day". "Didn't you hear he's teaching a CPR course at the Red Cross building" JD replied. "I wonder if a lot of fans would show up if I was the dummy"Criss inquired. "Come on Mr. Comedian" as they went inside. When Ava got back Costa was finishing up the class. "So I'll see you all next week and unfortunely my brother will not be the victim will work on" as they left. "Cute joke Costa"Ava stated walking over. "So did you go to The Luxor with the flyers"he inquired. "Yea I put one in The Mindfreak store, Believe, and the production office. Your brother JD said that he may talk some of the crew into donating"Ava replied. "Or some of them will come just for the juice and cookies" Costa joked as he put away the dummy.
Ava laughed as she took off her coat. When Costa turned he saw the scars on Ava's back and arms. "Holy crap Ava what happened?"he asked. "Oh these they're surgery scars a drunk driver hit him full on and he broke a couple of vertebras in my back, broke my collar bone in three places, shattered both my elbows. I'm walking junk yard. Some people are surprise I don't set off the metal deters at the airport". "How many surgeries did you go through?"Costa asked. "Five just so I could walk again. My mom told me because of a drive that was going on at the hospital they found donors to save my life so I could live. That's why I donate and volunteer"she replied. "You know what sign me up for a donation too"Costa remarked. Ava smiled. "Thanks Costa now try to get the Mindfreak down and maybe some of fans will follow"Ava said. When Costa got back Criss was on the couch in the production office with his hat over his face.
"What's up with Criss I've never seen him take a nap unless he's sick" Costa said to JD. "It's nothing he probably stayed out too late so how was the CPR class"he asked. "Not bad a lot of the girls would like to practice on Criss if catch my drift" Costa stated as JD tried not to laugh.

So are you going to donate some blood at the drive?". "Yea Banachek, Doug, Erich, and Gerard are going to donate too"JD replied. "What about sleeping beauty?"Costa inquired. "No dice". "Well maybe someday we'll get him donate since he's done it by either his foot or his hand"Costa said. "Let's not go there I'm just starting to forget that nail through the hand thing. I warned Criss if he does that again I'm quitting" JD remarked as they went to get a drink. When the day of the drive came up Ava went to the Excalibur to set up. When she got there Costa and JD were all ready there setting up tables and chairs. "This is surprise" as she put down a case of water. "I decided to bring JD along to help set up"Costa stated. "Well thanks guys I just finishing talking to Felix a few minutes ago and he said that at the next blood drive he's going to have at The Luxor and he'll have a drawing for two tickets for BELIEVE"Ava stated.
"Well that's great Ava I wonder what Felix had to do to get Criss to do that"JD joked as Ava and Costa giggled. "JD can you help me bring in some more stuff from my car?". "Sure" and they went to the car. When they got there JD heard meowing. "What JD?". "I hear a cat"he said. "Oh that's Angel he's sort of the mascot of the Las Vegas Red Cross. He entertains the little kids while their parents donate I just have to keep him away from where they donate". She went into her car and took out the cat carrier. JD looked inside than started to giggle. "What's so funny?". "Your cat looks like Hammie, it's like looking at his twin" JD remarked. "Come on" and they went in. At The Luxor the guys were having some lunch when Criss came in. "Hey Criss you going to donate some blood at the Excalibur today"Erich inquired. "I may drop down to take a look where's JD and Costa?". "They went to help Ava set up"Doug replied. Criss went over to the coffee pot and saw it wasn't even set up. "Nobody had coffee today?". "No I heard caffeine isn't good when you donate blood" Gerard replied.
"And Banacheck's eating a spinach salad and drinking water"Criss said. "I got to have a good iron level to donate Criss"he stated. A knock on the window came and it was Felix. "You guys ready I'm walking down". "Sure Felix see yea later Criss"Erich remarked. They all said good bye to Criss and left. In the ball room JD was working the canteen while Costa was helping outside. "All right just read this and fill this out" and gave some literacy to read. Ava came out to see how it was going. "Wow this is good turn out". "Well I heard from one of pit bosses the Excalibur is giving anyone that works here that donate a paid day off". "That's one way ofgetting a paid day off"she remarked. "Here you go Costa" giving him the form back. "Can't donate Isabella?".
"No just had a tattoo put on a couple of days ago" showing the angel wings on her ankle. "Maybe next time Isabella"Costa remarked as she left. Then Gerard, Banachek, Erich, Felix, and Doug came around the corner. "I see you all came where's Christopher?"Costa inquired. "He said he's be by later"Doug remarked. "Well just fill out the form and read this"Costa replied giving them the forms and the stuff to read. "See you later" as Ava went in.

"All right we got Cranberry, Orange Mango, Fruit Punch, and Water". "I'll take a Cranberry"a girl replied. "Water please". "Here we go ladies" he stated. How is everything here?"Ava askedcoming over. "Going good Planet Hollywood sent over a guitar shape fruit salad which everyone is loving"JD replied. "Pass me over a Mango G string". "I'll have a piece of the pineapple pick". Ava giggled and went over to the little kids as they patted and played with Angel. "Now be nice to her all right?". "Hammie" a little girl stated. "I see we have a Criss Angel fan in our mist"one of the nurses said. "I never knew Angel looked like Hammie untill now"Ava remarked. "Ava I forgot to ask where did you get Angel?" JD asked.
"A shelter in New York Purrs and Barks I think it was called"she replied. "Ava that's where Criss got Hammie for all we known that's probably Hammie sibiling" JD stated. "That would be funny". "All right number 23 white 23 white". The door opened and Erich came in. One by one the guys came in. Doug even hit on the tech that was doing his work up. "JD why don't you go sign up and I'll mind the canteen for you"Ava suggested. "All right" and went to get a form. Outside JD was reading it when Criss turned a corner. "Christopher decided to donate some blood?"JD asked. "No I thought I'd come and see what was going on". "Well come on" and they went in. When the crowd saw Criss walked in their jaws dropped. "So Criss you want to donate a pint JD tells me you have a rare blood type AB double negative". Criss felt put on the spot. "Sure why not" he said. "Over here Christopher"one of the nurses stated. Then the president of The Excalibur came in with the press.
"Ava how's the drive going?"she asked. "Very well we even have The Luxor's own Criss Angel and the president of The Luxor Felix Rappaport donating. Also some of Criss crew and his brothers have either donated or will"Ava replied. "Maybe you should hire Ava as your PR assistant"JD remarked as he sat with Criss. "Ouch"Criss stated as the woman stuck his finger. "Don't be such a baby Criss it's just prick"JD said. "Let's see well Criss it looks like your iron's low so you can't donate today maybe next time". Criss was happy about that. "Your turn bro"Criss replied as he got up. "Christopher how are you?"Ava inquired. "Well my iron's low so I can't donate"Criss replied. "Too bad Criss Ava has told me you have a rare blood type AB double negative". "Yea only my father and me have that blood type so I have to be careful because of it"Criss remarked. "Well I will see you later " and he left.
Then Criss felt something against his leg. He looked down and saw Angel. "How did my cat get here?"Criss asked confused. Ava giggled. "Criss this is my cat Angel" as she picked him up. "Wow he looks like Hammie". "She Criss; Angel keeps the little kids occupied while their parents or sister or brothers donate". Criss saw JD get up and left. "Janice what's wrong with JD?"Ava asked the tech. "When I took his blood pressure it was high so I got another cuff and it was still the same". "My brother has high blood pressure"Criss replied. "It was a good thing he came here today to donate having that high a blood pressure would of killed him or given him heart problems. I sent him to see a specialist at the hospital I work at right away so they can get it under control"she replied. "I knew I stressed out my brothers but given him high blood pressure"Criss stated sitting down.
"Criss don't think that high blood pressure is something that in your genes like diabetes or sickle cell finding it out now is a good thing because your brother would of been on the road to having the same problem your mom had or worse having a fatal MI"Ava assured Criss. "All right since I can't donate how about I entertain the kids for a while"Criss stated. "Thanks Criss" and gave him a kiss.
10-20-2012, 09:20 PM
After the drive Criss and Costa stayed behind to help clean up. "Thanks for the help guys"Ava stated. "It's no problem I had fun playing with those kids"Criss replied. "Those kids were amazed with some of tricks you did with them". "I did enjoy how you turned the red ribbon white in that girl's hair"Ava said. "Where's Angel?"Costa inquired looking around. "She always does this she loves to hide so she's doesn't have to go into the box". Costa muffled a laugh. "Sounds like Hammie when you have to take him to the vet Criss"Costa stated stacking the chairs. Criss turned his head and saw a tail waving under a table. "Over in the corner Ava I see a tail"Criss remarked.
She went over and grabbed her before she ran off. "Thanks Criss I'm going to put her in her cage before she disappears"Ava said and left. Then Costa's and Criss's phone went off. They looked at the number and it was JD. "JD how are you we heard what happened"Costa remarked. "There's more to it they found a blockage I have to have open heart surgery". "By pass surgery oh my god" Criss stated as memories of his mom's surgery came back to haunt him. "It's probably a good thing that I went to the blood drive they said if they didn't find out about my blood pressure and the blockage I could of ended up in one of those coffins Criss had made. I'm going to give mom a call and tell her"JD stated. "Just break it to her genteelly please "Criss replied and they hung up as Ava walked in.
"What's wrong guys?". "That was JD he has to have by pass surgery"Costa remarked. "Oh my god I know your mom went through the same thing". "Yea it's like dejavu expect it's not mom it's JD"Criss replied fumbling with his phone. "You guys go be with JD go I just have to make sure everything is picked up than I'll be leaving". "Thanks Ava"Criss remarked and they left. After Criss and Costa saw JD Criss went back to do Believe but for some reason Criss felt dizzy. "Hey Criss you all right?"Carrot Top asked when he saw Criss. "Yea just felt a little weak in the knees"Criss replied. "You don't look good Criss you're pale as the sheets in my room maybe you should sit down,". Before Criss could answer he fell to the floor. "I need some help!!"Carrot Top yelled. At the Red Cross center Ava was dropping off some stuff. "I can't believe the response we got for the next blood drive" Connie replied. "I think Criss and his crew helped out a lot"Ava stated. "Ava is it true JD is in the hospital for high blood pressure".
"Well from I was told by Janice when they did an MRI on JD to check for clots they found one that was blocking eighty-nine percent of his artery so he's having open heart surgery probably tomorrow" Ava replied. "Welll I'm glad everything is all right with JD". Then Fred ran in. "You guys Criss Angel was just rushed to the hospital in an ambulance". "Why what happened?"Ava inquired. "They're saying he passed out in the middle of the atrium his friend Carrot Top was there when it happened"he replied. "I hope Criss is all right". At the hospital Costa was leaving when his phone rang. "This is Costa". "Costa it's Carrot Top I thought you should know Criss is on his way to the hospital"he stated. "Why he just left a few minutes ago to get ready to Believe just have him call me and I'll bring back what he forgot"Costa replied. "It's not like that Criss collapsed in the middle of the atrium. He said he felt dizzy. Costa he was pale as a ghost it's like his face had no color than before he could replay he just fell like a tree being cut down". "Thanks Carrot I'll take a look in the ER and see if-". Like magic an ambulance pulled up.
"42 year old male collapsed in the middle of the atrium at The Luxor Hotel and casino. He's complained of dizziness, weakness, headaches and he's had a run of tachycardia" the EMT remarked as they brought Criss out with oxygen on him. "Christopher!!"Costa called out as he ran over. "Please stay back sir"The nurse replied. Criss took off the oxygen mask. "He's my brother"Criss said weakly. "Just leave that one sir we're going to need a little more info on your brother just follow us" as costa went in again. At the Red Cross station Ava was typing some of forms when BJ walked over. "Ava do you have a form that was filed by a Christopher Saratakas". "It's Sarantakos BJ it's greek yea I have it why". "Do you mind running it down to Saint Mark it seem he was brought there and they want to see why he was denine for giving blood". "Sure I'll run it down" and left
10-20-2012, 09:23 PM
At the hospital Criss was being looked at as the doctors ran tests to find out what was going on with Criss. In the waiting room Costa was on the phone talking to Felix when Ava walked in. "I'll keep you updated Felix," and hung up. "Ava what are you doing here?"he asked. "The hospital found out Criss tried to donate and they want to know why so I brought over the information how's Criss?". "He still has an irregular heart beat and he's keeps passes out. I swear if he need open heart surgery like JD-". "Costa don't go there all right let me drop this off to the doctor and I'll stay with you so you don't lose your mind"Ava suggested. "Thanks Ava I could use a friend right now"Costa replied smiling. As the doctor was looking over the results Ava came in. "Ava my favorite volunteer you got the information I need"he asked. "Yea Criss was denine donation because of low iron"Ava remarked giving him the paper work. "Nurse I need a blood count on Sarantakos and have some AB double negative blood on stand-by"he called out. "Jack you got any info I can tell his brother before he ends up losing his mind"she asked.
"Just tell him that Criss isn't going to die" and went back to work. Ava came out. "So how's Criss?". "He's fine and the doctor says that Criss isn't going to meet his father right now"she replied. Costa sat down and breathed a sigh of relief. Then Costa's phone rang and it was his mom. "Hey mom I'm so sorry mom I got side track by Criss. I'll explain everything," and hung up "I'm such an idiot I have to pick up my mom at the airport she flew in for JD's surgery". "Costa you stay here I'll go get your mom for you" she offered. Costa smiled as Ava left

10-22-2012, 03:00 AM
At the airport Dimitra was waiting at a little cafe. She was nervous at her oldest son having surgery. She only felt this way when Criss would do a dangerous demonstration that put his life on the line. "Dimitra". She looked up and saw a 34 year old woman with sunset red hair, the bluest eyes you've ever seen and a smile that would light up a room. "I'm Ava Borgot I'm a friend of your sons Costa asked me to come get you"she replied holding out her hand. "I can't believe Christopher side tracked Costa I should knock some sense into his head". Ava decided to tell Dimitra about Criss. "Dimitra The reason that Costa got sidetracked by Criss wasn't what you think. After Criss finished visiting JD he was brought back by ambulance he was dizzy, pale, weak, and he passed out at The Luxor"she remarked. Dimitra sat down as Ava got her some water. "Is it his heart?"she asked shaking a little.
"I don't know the doctors are running every test to make sure". "I always felt this way when he did those dangerous demonstration". "I can understand that completely Dimitra; why don't I take you to the hospital so you can see your sons"Ava said and they left. At the hospital Costa was outside smoking when Ava and Dimitra pulled up. He put out the cigarette and walked over. He gave his mom a hug. "How's Christopher and JD?"she asked. "JD's all right Lynn's up with him and I was just about to find out about Criss". They all went in as the doctor came out. "Mr. Sarantakos we know what's wrong with your brother Criss?". "Is it bad?"Ava asked. "No it seems Criss is severely anemic. He has all the symptoms of anemia including the low iron that denine his blood donation" he replied.
"Can it be fixed?". "If Criss takes some iron supplements it will take care of itself but right now Criss needs a transfusion but, because of his blood type we're having a hard time finding a donor"he remarked. "The one thing Criss had to get from dad was his blood type"Costa muttered. Then Ava got an idea and called BJ. "Yea what's up Ava?". "BJ I got a code red at the hospital I need you and the others to put the word out we need to find a rare blood match for Criss Angel"she remarked. "Where should they come to be checked out". "Ava tell them here I'll set up a conference room to do it in". "At Saint Matthews even put it on Criss's site and warn other hospitals and donation centers about this all right". "You got it Ava" and hung up. "Do you think it will work?"Dimitra asked. "With Ava's luck it will"Jack stated.
10-22-2012, 03:08 AM
As the word got around about Criss every loyal came to help even some fifteen years old got written permission from their parents to donate which amazed Ava. At the hospital Ava gathered the information. "Number 23 blue". "Come on I got until five"one person called out. "Settle down we're going as fast as we can" Janice replied. "I can't believe this magician has this many fans"Jeff remarked as a nurse came in to take the blood. "The man has fans that would give Criss anything even a body part"Ava remarked as Janice and Jeff went back to work. Then Ava's phone went off. "Hello". "Ava I just got called from a blood bank in Kanas they have a line down the street and in Texas they had to use one of their blood mobile"he replied.
"I think Criss may replenish the nation blood supply" Ava stated. "Even his home town loyals are hosting a blood drive at his old high school". "Keep me updated" and hung up. "Hey Ava are you going to donate?" Janice inquired. "Why not" as she sat down. "Hey Ava question does Criss have a niece name Dimitra"Jeff asked. "Yea she's about fifteen or sixteen"she replied. "She's outside with a note from her mother" showing her. "Let her in. If she doesn't match her uncle we could probably match her for her father's surgery"she replied. Dimitra came in with Costa. "Hey Costa can you believe this response for your brother?". "My mom is amazed so is JD and Lynn"Costa replied. "So do you know your blood type Dimitra?"the doctor asked. "No"she replied blushing. "Well we'll test your blood and see if you match your uncle or your dad" he replied as he stuck her.
In the emergency room Criss was laying there when his mom came in. "You should see what's going on". "I never thought my fans would do this"he replied. "The rumor is you may replenish the nation blood supply" as Criss laughed. "Even Dimi is donating for either you or JD". Criss just smiled Around ten they threw up the white flag and told the kids to go home. "Come on I want to help Criss" someone called out. "If you guys haven't helped the Mindfreak you've probably helped a lot of more people maybe even his brother"Jeff replied. "What's wrong with one of Criss's brother?"a girl asked. Congrates Jeff you just put your foot in your mouth Ava thought as she let Jeff handle it. Upstairs Criss was being held over night which he didn't like but his mother made him stay. "I swear Criss you're a mommy's boy" Costa stated coming in.
"If I wasn't so anemic I'd kicked your butt"Criss replied. "Well don't worry they've probably found a match for you or JD downstairs "Dimitra said. After Ava brought the last of the blood donationto the blood bank room her phone went off. "Yea BJ what's up?". "They found a match for Criss in Boston they're flying out a pint right now" BJ replied. "Yes I'll let Jeff and Christopher's family know" and hung up. After she dropped the blood off she ran to the nearest elevator. When the elevator opened Dimitra and Costa were in it. "Ava what are you still doing here?"Costa inquired. "I just brought the last batch of blood to the blood bank and to tell you I got a call from BJ they found a donor in Boston that matched Criss they're flying the blood here"she replied. Smiles appeared on their faces as Costa gave Ava a hug. "Ava you just made our day" as Dimitra gave her a hug. "It's my pleasure Costa and just to warn you Jeff let it slip about JD"she said. "Oh boy" Costa remarked.

Enjoying the story, and I can't wait to read more :)
10-23-2012, 04:15 AM
Around three in the morning the blood came for Criss and he was hooked up. At her house Ava was so tired she fell asleep on her couch. When she woke up the next day she saw it was almost noon. Dam I got knocked out she thought and decided to get dressed. After she got washed up and dressed she saw she had a couple of messages so she pressed the play button on her answering machin. Hey Ava it's BJ I just wanted to inform you that what you did for Criss was amazing. Every blood bank from here to New Hampshire had donors at their door this morning. Talk to you later. Ava giggled as she listened to the rest of the messages. Ava it's Janice I wanted to tell you that the blood for Criss came last night and Criss is doing better he’s being discharged later on this afternoon and JD's surgery is probably happening as we speak so talk to you later
"Let's just hope JD pulls through this with flying colors". Ava it's Costa I'm in the waiting room waiting on word of JD so I thought I'd give you a ring to see how you were and wonder if you wanted to go to LAX with me and Criss tonight. Give me a ring. "I don't even remember the last time I had a date" as she smiled and called Costa back. At the hospital Costa was outside. "Hello" he said. "Costa it's Ava I just got your message how's JD". "There's a complication JD had a seizure while he was having surgery". "Is he all right?" she asked a little nervous. "Yea they just think someone might of labeled the blood wrong they're checking it now"he said. "Well if everything goes right I'd love to go out with you and Criss tonight". "S-s-seriously" Costa stuttered. "Yes" as she giggled. "I'll call you later" and hung up.
After talking with Costa Ava Called Janice. "Hey Ava what's up?". "Janice what's going on with the blood bank they mislabeled some blood and gave it to JD. Does someone need a vacation down there"she asked. "No it's seems JD has a genetic trait in his blood that causes the blood to clot in the veins". "Holy carp I'm surprised they didn't find this when they were babies"she said. "Sometimes gentic can change as you get older, so JD will be put on blood thinner for the rest of his life. Ava this is something that is passed down JD's daughter could have it" she remarked.
"Janice JD's daughter donated yesterday if they have a sample of her blood in the clinic tested it before she ends up having open heart surgery like her father"Ave remarked. "All right talk to you later" and Janice hung up. After talking to Janice Ava went down to the hospital to check on Costa and his family. When she got there Costa was outside. "Ava what are you doing here?" he asked. "I came to see you and your family. I heard about JD and the blood disorder". "Well thankfully I don't have it but they're not sure how to test Criss for it since he had a blood transfusion for his anemia". "I guess it came from your father's side of the family" she stated smiling. "I guess so". Then Criss came over and he didn't look happy. "I just talked to the doctor they said there's only one way to check for this disorder in me right now". "And that is how?" Costa asked. "Bone marrow test"Ava guessed. "You've got it"Criss replied. "Ouch"Costa stated. "They can perform the procedure today". "Criss there's something you can do too. They can put your marrow in the bone marrow donor program. You could probably safe someone's live"Ava said. "I'll tell the doctors that thanks Ava"Criss remarked.
10-23-2012, 04:20 AM
"Well it looks like our plan for LAX is off"Costa stated. "No you and Ava can still go"Criss replied. Costa looked at Ava and than Criss. "Criss can I talk to you for a minute" and took Criss aside. "What's wrong I thought you liked Ava"Criss stated. "I do but you know me and women I always say the wrong thing and I end up making an idiot of myself. That's why I wanted you there to help me"Costa replied as Ava was looking at some flowers at the gift shop. "Costa you have to relax that's your problem you get tense around women. Try to relax yourself all right you'll do fine"Criss replied. "All right" and they went back over to Ava. "Well I have to get going it was nice seeing you guys"Ava stated. "I'll tell my mom you stopped by" Costa remarked. "See yea Criss" and she left.
That night Costa was getting ready as Criss was laying in his bed. "What do you think?". "Not bad" as Criss tried to get comfortable. "Criss maybe you should of stayed in the hospital considering they had take it from you hip"Costa replied. "I maybe in a bit of discomforted but I'm fine you just have fun with Ava"Criss replied as he took one of his pain pills. "All right but if you need me just give me a call". "All right now go and tell Ava I said hi" and Costa left. When Costa got there he saw Ava was waiting outside. "Hey Costa I almost thought you weren't going to show up" she replied. "I wouldn't do that to you. Come on let's go in" and they went in. They sat down and ordered some drinks. After talking for a while they started to play SANTANA INTO THE NIGHT. "Come on Costa let's dance" and they went to the dance. As they danced Costa was having fun.
Like a piece to the puzzle that falls into place
You could tell how we felt from the look on our faces
We was spinning in circles with the moon in our eyes
No room left to move in between you and I
We forgot where we were and we lost track of time
And we sang to the wind as we danced through the night
"You're an awesome dancer Ava"Costa remarked. "Well before my accident I was a dancer"she replied as she danced closer to Costa. As Ava stared into Costa's eye he took Ava and kissed her.
Like a gift from the heavens
It was easy to tell
It was love from above that could save me from hell
She had fire in her soul
It was easy to see
How the devil himself could be pulled out of me
There were drums in the air as she started to dance
Every soul in the room keeping time with their hands and we sang
And the voices rang like the angles sang, singing
And we danced on into the night
Before Costa and Ava knew it they were at his apartment taking off their clothes and making out.

When Costa woke up last night he saw Ava was gone. He got up as last night came back to haunt him. Then he saw a note on the table that just said Sorry I had to leave At The Luxor Criss was having a meeting in his room. "So how's the hip Criss?"Banachek asked. "Still sore but I got a call from the doctor I don't have the blood disorder"Criss replied. "Hey where's Costa?"Luke asked sitting down. "Probably having breakfast in bed with another girl" Erich remarked. "Didn't he have a date with that Red Cross volunteer Ava?" Gerard said. "How did you know that?"Criss asked. "I saw them at LAX last night it looked like they were having fun on the dance floor"Gerard remarked winking. "Gerard get your head out of the gutter please"Criss stated. Then Costa came in.
"I see he remembers where he works"Luke said. Costa said nothing as he sat down. As they went through some stuff Criss noticed Costa was chewing his nails. "You know what why don't we end this and pick it up later"Criss suggested. "All right" and everyone started to leave. "Costa come here"Criss said. "What Criss?" in a childish tone. "How did the date go with Ava?"he inquired. "Good we had fun danced the night away, she and I had sex and she left before I woke up". Criss turned his head. "Back up you and Ava had sex last night". "I can't believe it either". "And when you woke up she was gone". "Great I'm a one night stand"Costa replied. "Come on let's go downstairs". Criss grabbed one of his canes and they left. Downstairs Ava was talking to Felix when she saw Costa and Criss coming over. "Thanks Felix I'll call you later" and she went outside. Costa didn't see her but Criss did. "I'll be right back Costa I need to get something out of the Lambo I forgot"Criss remarked and went outside.
Outside Ava was waiting for her car when she felt a hand on her shoulder. She turned around and saw Criss. "Christopher how are you?"she asked. "Good but I'm wondering why all of a sudden you're avoiding Costa for?" he asked.
10-24-2012, 04:13 AM
Ava and Criss sat down. "I feel awful about what happened last night. It just feels like I took advantage of Costa that's why I left before he got up"she replied. "Ava maybe if you talk to Costa about last night". "No way Criss I'm already embarrassed about it and I don't want everyone from here to The Bahamas knowing I slept with Costa. I got to go". She got into her car and left.
When Ava got back she was ready to bang her head against her desk. Her mind told her to talk to Costa but she couldn't force her body to do it. Come on Ava you need to talk to Costa about what happened last night sooner or later she thought. Then her phone rang. "Hello" she remarked. "Ava baby how are you?". "Daddy why are you calling me for?"she asked. "Well a friend of mine wants me to say mass at his church Holy Trinity in North Las Vegas so do you mind if your father bunks with you at your apartment". "No daddy that would be fine" she replied and hung up. The next morning Criss got woken up by a banging at the door. He got up half asleep and answered the door. At the door was Costa. "You overslept again".
"So what it's my day off now why don't you leave me alone I was having a cool dream with six models and the beach with nobody around"Criss remarked ready to shut the door in his brother's face. "Christopher you forgot that you promised mom you would go to church with me and her to thank god for JD coming out of his surgery and finding out about that blood disorder that could of killed him"Costa reminded him. Criss slapped his head. "Give me ten minutes" Criss remarked and went to take a quick shower. "You have five Criss and mom wants you to wear a suit and no rings this time"he called out. Downstairs Dimitra was waiting for them. Christopher probably overslept as usually she thought. Coming out of the elevator was Costa and Criss. "Come on we're going to be late". "Just let me grab something to eat so I can take my medication so I don't get anemic again"Criss replied as he grabbed a muffin and a juice. "Come on Christopher"Dimitra stated.
"Coming mom"he replied as he downed the juice. At the church Ava was sitting front row. "Ava how nice to see you"Father Stefan stated coming over. "Nice to see you too father I hope my dad doesn't get long winded like he always does". "I've told him to keep it short excuse me I see some old friends coming in". Ava went to the ladies' room before church started. Coming in was Costa, Criss, and their mother. "Costa, Christopher, Dimitra how nice to see you"the father said shaking their hands. "It's nice to see you too Father Stefan"Dimitra remarked. As the father talked Criss got the sudden urge to use the bathroom and excused himself. At the bathrooms Ava was finishing up when she heard the door next to her slam shut. Somebody's got to go bad she thought as she washed her hands. As Ava was coming out the door to the other bathroom opened and Criss came out. "Christopher what are you doing here?"she asked surprised.
"I go here with my mom when she's in town. You". "Christopher come on church is starting"Dimitra said. Ava and Criss went to sit down. "Thank you for coming and may I thank my good friend father Samual Borgot for coming down from Black Hill Ohio to say our mass to day". "Did he say Father Borgot?"Costa asked softly. "Isn't that Ava last name?"Criss said. "Both of you quiet"Dimitra stated to Costa and Criss. After church Ava was getting ready to leave when Criss stopped her.
10-24-2012, 04:18 AM
"We have to talk Ava come on" and went back into the church". "About what?"she asked. "That you're a preacher's daughter is this why you freaked out that you slept with Costa"he asked. "Yea my father wanted me to be a virgin on my wedding night. If he found out I lost my virginity and it was Costa he'll freak out". "Your father that stricted about sex before marriage". "You don't want to hear what he thinks of you Criss believe me"Ava replied. "Ava where are you?"her father called out. "Criss you better vamoose before my father sees you"Ava stated. "All right" and Criss left. At The Luxor Criss was thinking when a knock came to the door.
"Come on in"Criss called out and Costa came in. "Hey where did you go after church?". "When I went to the menís room I saw Ava"he remarked. "Let me guess we were right the preacher is Ava's father". "Bingo but I got some news on why Ava freaked out. You were her first and her father frowns on sex before marriage"Criss remarked. Costa sat down. "I never thought Ava was a virgin". Then Criss's phone rang and it was Ava. "Hey Ava yea we'll be right down" and hung up. "Ava's downstairs she wants to talk to you"Criss remarked and they went downstairs. When they came down Ava was there. "Hey Ava"Costa remarked. "Costa I guess Criss told you what I told him". "Yea Ava you don't have to be scared your father won't find out". "I guess being a preacher's daughter makes me nervous sometimes"she replied smiling. Costa walked over to Ava and kissed her. "Ava Alexandra!!!"a voice yelled. She turned around and saw her father.
"Dad what are you doing here?"she asked as Costa walked back. "Your work told me you were here. What are you doing in a casino?"he asked. "Visiting my friends Costa and Christopher"she replied. "Nice to meet you"Criss remarked. "Are you dating this man?"he asked pointing to Costa. "We had a first date a couple of nights ago I never got a chance to kiss Ava good-night" Costa replied. "For a second there I thought you here to see that devil worshiping magicain"he said. Criss kept his temper at bay. "Devil worship that kind of harsh sir"Costa replied. "What he does is against god's will?". "What making people amazed at what he does. The guy has talent"Criss stated. "Please magic is the devil's work and what he does makes pray for his family that he finds god. Come on Ava"he remarked. "I'll be right there dad" Ava said and he went outside. "Christopher I'm so sorry for what my dad said". Criss said nothing and went into the production office. "I'm surprise he didn't lose his temper". Then they heard something thrown at the wall. "I guess he held it in until your father left. I'll see you later Ava" and Costa went into the production office

10-27-2012, 04:29 AM
When Ava got home with her father she wanted to tell her father off but couldn't. "So sweetie tell me how you and that man met?" grabbing a drink. "Well Costa is a volunteer EMT so he does CPR training at the Red Cross center I volunteer at. He even helped me set up the blood drive at the Exculbair"she remarked. "That's nice what about his brother what does he do?". "He works at the Luxor as entertainment nothing sick or X rated"Ava replied trying to be a vague as possible. "Now Father Stefan tells me you also set up an emergency blood drive for Criss why?". "Well Criss was diagnosed as anemic and he needed a blood transfusion but, Criss has a rare blood type AB double negative so with some help from his fan base we found a man in Boston who had the blood type that Criss needed"Ava replied. "I met their mother very nice greek woman she was telling me what a god sent you've been to her and her family". "You taught me that dad" Ava replied as she gave her father a kiss.
"Your mother will be very happy to hear that. I'm going to give her a call right now" and went into her bedroom. At The Luxor Criss was doing some run through but couldn't get what Ava's father said about him out of his head. Devil worshiper my :mad: :mad:. If he only knew who I really am and how good I am. Drink occasional don't do drugs. I wanted to punch him so bad but I know Mom would giving me the riot acted in Greek and some choice words to boot if I did hit a priest Criss thought After talking with her father Ava went for a walk to clear her mind. Before she knew it Ava had walked to The Luxor. She went in and saw Costa having lunch with his mom. "I got to say mom Ava's father is one of those priest that think that magic is the devil's work. He made me want to hit him"Costa remarked.
"I'm surprised Christopher didn't"Dimitra remarked. "Mom I don't know what do to. I love Ava but it's just her father is the one thing that might not make this relationship work"Costa said. "It's all right Costa you'll figure it out". Ava heard everything as tears fell down her face. She left before Costa saw her but Criss saw her as she left. The next day Ava was working when Criss walked in. "Christopher what are you doing here?" Ava asked surprised. "I thought I could talk to you". "If it is my father I can't change his mind about you"she remarked. "Believe me Ava I can't change people's opinion of me even if I could"he stated sitting next to her. "I know but I just hate it. He was against me moving to Las Vegas thinking I would get corrupted. After what I did with Costa I'm thinking it did"she replied. "Ava consider it a form of adult rebellion towards your father. You've been such a good girl you just let the bad side of you come out" he stated.
10-27-2012, 04:34 AM
"Criss I really like Costa and I know he loves me but we both think that my father may ruin it when he finds out I slept with Costa and you're an illusionist"she remarked. "Ava don't let your father ruin your relationship with my brother"Criss stated. Ava smiled at Criss. "Thanks Criss" and kissed Criss. "AVA BORGOT!!". She turned and saw her father. "Daddy it isn't what you think?". "What that you're messing around with this devil worshiper. I knew your face looked familiar" her father remarked. "Dad Criss isn't a devil worshiper. He's an awesome magician and he's Greek Orthodox" Ava replied. Ava's father smacked her. "You known how I feel about lying Ava. You have corrupted my daughter". "I have done no such thing sir. Your daughter has done nothing wrong. She is telling the truth you even talked to my mother at church"Criss stated. "Ava when I leave tomorrow you're coming too Las Vegas has done what I thought would happen" and her father left. When Ava got home her father was packing.
"Good get to packing Ava"he stated. "No daddy I'm not leaving with you". Her father stood up and looked her straight in the eyes. "No daughter of mine will disobey me. You are leaving Sin City and coming back to Ohio with me"he replied. "No I'm not that little girl daddy I'm old enough to make my own decision I have a life here and I want to make it work with Costa" she replied. At The Luxor Criss was working on some stuff when Costa walked in. "Hey Criss" he said in a somber tone. "What's wrong don't tell me JD dead?"Criss asked. "No thank god he's coming home tomorrow" Costa replied. Criss breathed a sigh of relief. "I just don't think me and Ava are going to work out" he said. "Costa I talked to her today she loves you Costa. You can't let what her father say control your love life with her"Criss remarked. "All right I'm going to see her. Thanks Criss" and he walked off. When he got to the apartment Costa knocked on the door. "Ava open up it's Costa". Ava opened the door and Costa couldn't believe what he saw Ava had been stabbed in the abdomen. She passed out in Costa's arm. Costa put her down on the floor and took off his coat to put pressure on the wound.
Costa grabbed his cell phone and dialed 911. "I need an ambulance I just found my friend stabbed please hurry she's dying!!". At The Luxor Criss was having dinner with his mother when he saw Costa come in with blood on his shirt and coat. Criss ran over. "Costa are you all right?"he asked. "Should I call an ambulance?" Dimitra inquired. Costa sat down. "It's not my blood it's Ava's her father lost it and stabbed her". "Oh my god!!"Dimitra remarked as Criss sat next to her. "What about Ava?". "She's dead"Costa said. Tears started to flow down Dimitra's face and Criss's. "She took her last breath in my arm Criss. I just can't believe her father did that to her"Costa stated with tears falling down his face. Criss gave his brother a hug as Costa started to cry.

TONIGHT TRAGEDY STRUCK AS A WOMAN IS STABBED AND KILLED BY HER OWN FATHER. THIRTY-TWO YEAR OLD AVA BORGOT DIED TODAY AT ST MATTHEWS HOSPITAL WITH A STAB WOUND TO THE ABDOMEN. POLICE FOUND THE FATHER ROAMING AROUND FREEMONT STREET BLABBING INCORHENTLY AND COVERED IN HIS DAUGHTER'S BLOOD-.
Criss turned off the television as he sat next to his mom. "If he's going for insanity plea he's there"JD stated. "I tried to see how Costa was but he won't let me in his room"Dimitra replied wiping her face of tears. "I guess Costa just wants to be left alone right now"Criss remarked. "He's probably feeling what you felt when dad died"JD said looking at Criss. "Probably". A knock came to the door and JD got it. At the door was Felix. "Hey Felix what are you doing here?" Criss asked surprised to see him considering the time of night it was. "I just heard about Ava I can't believe her father would do such a thing. He's a preacher from Ohio". "Police are saying that he had a nervous breakdown or something"Criss said. "I heard Costa found her how is he?". "After the police talked to him he said he wanted to be left alone" Dimitra replied. "I wanted to tell you that all of the hotels that Ava did blood drives at are starting a little fund to help her mother pay for her funeral"Felix told them. Criss went over to his coat and took out two hundred dollars from his wallet. "Here you go Felix"Criss replied.
"Here Felix" as Criss's mom gave thirty too. "See me later Felix I don't have my wallet on me"JD replied. "Thanks" and Felix left. The next day Criss went to see his brother but he still wanted to be left alone so Criss honored it. At the production office the crew was just talking about Ava. "She's was a nice woman. She reminded me of my niece"Luke said. "And her can do attitude it was so catchy. When we donated blood that day I told Ava I wanted to help out with the blood drive here in a few months" Banachek remarked. "You know Felix is putting together a little fund to help her mother pay for her funeral" Doug stated. "Yea I gave Felix fifty"Gerard stated. "I gave him a hundred dollar chip I won at the Hymn a few weeks ago" Erich stated. "I just wish there was something else we could do to honor her memory" Brian suggested. Criss walked in and saw everyone's faces. "I see you guys heard about Ava last night" as he sat down at his desk. "Yea are they charging Ava's father with murder"Bancheck asked. "I don't know if he's even fit to stand trail. I heard that he had a breakdown or something"Criss replied sitting down.
"Criss is it true Costa found her and was with her when she died". "Yea Costa did all he could to save Ava but she already lost too much blood"Criss remarked holding back the tears. "I feel bad for Costa I heard he liked her"Luke stated. The phone rang and Banachek got it. "Yea thanks I'll tell him,". "Criss Ava's mom is here she wants to talk to Costa but he's not answering his phone or the door"he remarked. "I'll see what I can do" and Criss left. In his room Costa was staring out the window drinking a beer. He couldn't get Ava and her dying in his arms out of his mind. Costa finished the beer and threw the bottle at the door shattering it. A knock came to the door. "Costa let me in"Criss said. "Leave me alone Christopher"he replied. "Come on Costa let me in". "GO AWAY!!" Costa yelled out and threw a lamp at the door. Criss took a couple of steps back when he heard the lamp break. Criss knew the pain Costa was going through and wanted to help but Costa didn't want it.
Then Criss went into his pocket and took out a skeleton key he had for all the rooms at The Luxor. He put it in the slot and it unlocked the door. Criss walked in and saw Costa on the floor still in the same clothes that he came home in with Ava's dry blood on it. The place was trashed with broken beer bottles and a lamp. "I thought I told you to go away"he replied as Costa got up off the floor. "Costa I want to help you"Criss remarked. "I don't need your help Christopher just leave me the :mad: alone"Costa said. "You think I don't know how you feel hell you saw it first hand what I went through when dad died in my arms. I couldn't function with out reliving the pain and heartache I felt when dad died. Costa I know you loved Ava and your heart is aching but you can't let the pain of losing her take control of you. You have to find a way to turn it around". "You had your magic to focus your pain I got nothing"he replied in anger. Criss didn't know what to say so he left the room. When he came out he called Felix. "Felix Costa is not up to talking to anyone I'll come and talk to her" and Criss left.
10-30-2012, 04:37 AM
When Criss came down Mrs. Bogort was standing next to Fliex. "Nice to meet you Christopher my daughter considered you a good friend"she remarked shaking Crissís hand. "Well your daughter became apart of my family too. She help my brother JD, me, and my family. It's a terrible thing that she died" Criss stated. "I wanted to thank your brother Costa for trying to safe my daughter. I just can't believe my husband did this"she remarked wiping her tears away. "Yea my crew and my family feel the same way" Criss stated. "It was nice to meet you Christopher and when he's up to it I would like to talk to Costa"she replied. "I'll let him know"Criss said and Mrs Borgot left. A few days passed and JD and Criss were getting ready for Ava's funeral. "So do you know if Costa's coming?"JD asked. "Don't know"Criss called out from his bed room. "Have you talked to him since you saw him last?".
Criss came out. "I went to his room and opened the door. The place was still the same but Costa wasn't there but he did change I asked the maids to clean his room and tell me if Costa returns"Criss replied fixing his collar. "I talked to mom she hasn't talked to Costa either and she's worried about him like she was with you when dad passed" JD stated. "I don't blame her for worrying hell I'm worried about him too"Criss remarked. JD turned on the television and they had something on Ava's murder.
TODAY IN LAS VEGAS SUPERIOR COURT ELVIS BOGORT PLEADED NO QUILTY FOR THE MURDER OF HIS THIRTY FIVE YEAR OLD DAUGHTER AVA. HIS LAWYER HAS DRAFTED A MOTION FOR INSANITY DEFENCE. "MR BORGOT WASN'T IN THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND WHEN HE ALLEGELY KILLED HIS DAUGHTER. MY CLIENT SUFFERED A MENTAL BREAKDOWN AT THE TIME".
"What a bunch of :mad: the guy using the insanity defense so he doesn't have to go to jail"Criss replied. "What you don't think the guy had a breakdown when he killed Ava". "Honestly no I think the guy couldn't take it that his daughter was living her own life and he made Ava paid for it with her life"Criss replied in honesty. "Well come on we're going to be late" and they left. When they got to the funeral they saw Felix and some other owners of hotels around the strip. "There's the owner of the Excalibur next to Felix"JD stated. "Talking to Ava's mom is the owner of the MGM and next to him is the owner of The Mirage" Criss added. Walking over to JD and Criss was Janice and BJ. "Hey guys"Janice remarked. "Hey Janice BJ I can't believe how many owners of hotels are here at Ava's funeral"Criss replied. "The reason Ava worked at The Red Cross because she wanted to help people and she would talk to every owner of each hotel on the strip if we could hold a blood drive or teach a CPR course there. The owner of The Mirage loved Ava like a daughter he would even donate money to The Red Cross every Christmas" BJ stated.
"What about Felix?". "Ava considered him an angel when Ava had her accident here in Las Vegas Felix was the only one who the right blood type. Since then Ava and Felix became good friends and why Felix wanted to help out Ava's mother with the funeral"Janice stated. "And the owner of the MGM". "Ava was his angel Ava and I went to The MGM to put out flyer for the next blood drive when someone screamed. Ava saw a man on the floor out cold. Ava checked him out saying he was breathing and didn't have a pulse so we did CPR on him until the ambulance came. We later found out it was the owner of MGM. He was so grateful that every year we hold CPR course at his hotel so everyone know what to do if that happened again"Janice replied. "Wow maybe we should talk to Felix about doing that?"JD suggested.
"Yea and Costa can teach it"Criss added. As the funeral started Criss looked around at the crowd and the people who knew or cared for Ava. When Criss turned his head he saw over under a tree was Costa. He bumped JD and pointed over to where he was. After the priest said his stuff Costa walked over quietly and put a white rose on her coffin. Then he said Θα σας αγαπήσω πάντα μου αυξήθηκα and left. "What did he just say?"Felix asked Criss. "JD the Greek translator here Felix". "He said I will always love you my rose"JD replied as Criss watched his brother walk away.

Great chapters , poor costa , i hope he will be ok , cant wait to read more :)
11-06-2012, 08:12 PM
After the funeral Criss and JD went after Costa but he left before they caught up. As they drove to The Luxor Criss got a bad feeling in his gut that started to bug him. "What's wrong Criss?"JD asked. "I'm getting that bad feeling in my stomach". "The last time that happen mom had heart surgery" JD replied. "Pull over now!!"Criss yelled and JD did. Criss didn't wait for the car to stop to get out. He ran out and threw up. JD got out as Criss was on his hands and knees. "You all right?"JD asked. Criss looked up and saw Costa smoking. "I think we found Costa"Criss remarked getting up slowly. Costa just sat on the car with a cigarette and paper bag with booze in it. "Costa"a voice called out. Costa saw Criss and JD walking over. "I thought I was alone"he said. "Well if Criss didn't toss his cookies you would of" JD said. "How are you Costa?"Criss asked.
"A little better but I still miss Ava"he replied taking a drink. JD took the bottle and took a drink than spit it out. "God this is terrible this is like drinking lighter fluid"he replied as JD threw the stuff in the trash. "Costa we kind of figured out what you could do to honor Ava"Criss remarked. "What's that?"he asked putting the cigarette out. "Well Ava always gave CPR courses at the MGM why don't you take that over for her"JD suggested. "You can also teach the people at The Luxor too" Criss added. "Yea you can be the dummy Criss" and JD started to laugh as Costa smiled. "That's the Costa we love"JD said as he gave him a hug. When the guys got back to The Luxor Mrs. Borgot was there with Felix. "Christopher nice to meet you again". "Thanks and this is my brother Costa"Criss stated as he walked over. "You must be the man my daughter loved". "Yes I loved your daughter too she will be missed"Costa replied. "Why don't you guys go into my production office and talk"Criss offered and they walked over as Criss went into the bathroom again. "What's wrong with Criss?". "Stomach problems probably"JD replied.
"So Costa my daughter told me you're a volunteer EMT". "Yea Janice told me about The Red Cross chapter here so I volunteer to give CPR classes and when I met Ava she made everyone around here happy including me and my brothers. My mother told me when she met Ava that she saw either my brother Criss or me marrying her"Costa said. "The paramedics told me you were there when Ava passed away". "Yea I tried to keep her alive but I couldn't" as tears started to fall down his face. Ava's mother got up and went over to Costa. "I'm just happy that she wasn't alone when she died. Ava always could bring out the best in people and I'm glad you tried to help her. Costa if it's all right with you I think Ava would like you to have Angel her cat".
"That would be all right I could use the company" Costa stated. All of a sudden they saw EMTs coming in. "Excuse me" and Costa came out. Costa walked over to JD who was chewing his nails. "JD what's going on?" Costa inquired. "It's Criss I came in to see how he is and I saw Criss on the floor with blood on his lips and in the toilet it looks he puked it up". The EMT brought Criss out who was unconscious and with oxygen on him.
11-06-2012, 08:20 PM
As the guys drove to the hospital they were worried about what was going on with Criss. "Maybe that blood he puked up is probably the reason he was anmenic"JD suggested. "Yea why did Criss throw up blood" Costa asked. "Let's hope the doctors know" as they pulled into the hospital. When they got in Costa saw Jeff. "Hey Jeff"he called out. "Costa JD I guess you're here about Criss". "Yea what's wrong with him this time"JD remarked. "I guess the stress of Criss's job finally caught up with him. Criss has an ulcer and the ulcer is probably the reason he became anemic". "We use to tell Criss he was giving us ulcers not the other way around"Costa stated.
"Well with some medication and trying to bring down Criss's stress level he'll be fine". "You'd have a better chance on trying to raise the dead than bringing down Criss's stress level"JD replied as Costa muffled a laugh. "Well we also have a problem because of the ulcer Criss is anemic again so we have to give him another transfusion". "Did you find anyone here that's Criss's blood type?"Costa inquired. "Janice is checking the blood list to see if anyone is AB double negative from that blood drive Ava-". Jeff stopped mid sentence. "It's all right Jeff we all miss Ava"Costa replied. "Jeff Jeff we've got it we've got a pint of AB double negative"Janice remarked running down with a cooler. In the emergency room they hooked Criss up and after a minute Criss started to feel better. "How you feeling Criss?"JD asked as they walked in. "Better I can't believe I gave myself an ulcer"he replied. "Well now you have a reason to slow down"Costa said. "Yea"Criss replied. A few months went by and The Luxor was having their blood drive. Criss and his crew helped out any way they could. Criss even brought down Hammie which the little kids loved. At the canteen Costa was handing out the drinks. "How you doing Costa?".
He turned around and saw BJ. "I'm good that Ava's father is in a mental hospital for what he did". At the trial Ava's father went loony saying that his lawyer and the judge were out to get him, so they put him in a mental hospital for the rest of his life. "How's Criss I heard he got an ulcer". "He's watching his stress level and taking his medication. He's doing good so far" Costa replied. "Well I'm going to donate we'll talk later"he stated and walked off. Over at one of blood donation tables JD was donating while Criss just talked. "Too bad you're still a little anmenic"JD said. "Well with the medications I'm on Iím surprise that I still can donate when I'm not anmenic" Criss joked. "Well I found out something you may like to know"JD stated. "And that is?". "It's seems the rare blood type still lives on in the family. It seems my daughter has AB double negative blood"JD replied as he sat up slowly. "So little D has my blood type wow"Criss said in shock.
"Yup and if you need another transfusion because of an accident or something else they will tap your niece" as JD got up. "Well go over and get a drink at the canteen"Criss replied as Felix came over. "Christopher thanks for letting us use The Believe Theater for this. I can't believe Wanda double booked where we were going to have it"Felix remarked. "Just be thankful it's a black night for Believe"Criss replied. "Hey Criss can you help this lovely lady over to the canteen"Janice called out. "Talk to you later Felix" as Criss walked over. Criss walked the lady over to the canteen. After he did that Carrot top and Penn and Teller walked in. "Hey I see you got my message about the blood drive". "Yea I had to drag Carrot here"Penn remarked. "Hey I don't like blood all right" Carrot stated. "Well just fill this out and one of the nurses will take care of you" as the guys sat down. After the blood drive was over Criss was in his office looking over some stuff as Costa came in.
"Hey what are you looking at?". "*givelife.org it's a website for the American Red Cross. I was just reading some of the way blood and platelets are used. They even had an article in here about Ava. Saying that Ava Borgot was the most caring person in the Las Vegas Chapter of The Red Cross. She even help with an emergency blood drive for me and other people"Criss read. "Maybe when you finally get enough Iron in your blood maybe you can finally donate"Costa suggested. "Yea for Ava"Criss replied as he looked at the picture of Ava. A week later Criss finally got to a double red cell donation.
I hope you guys have learned what I was doing with this story everywhere people need blood for transplants, amenia, accidents, and people with cancer. Check out the website(*) and find a blood drive or a local Red Cross service near where you live and donate. The need is constant. The gratification is instant.

I would give blood, but my bout with kidney stones disqualifies me.
