Another day at the Luxor but Criss just sat at his desk. He was lonely and his brothers could tell as they looked at Criss through the window of the production office. "God I hate seeing Criss this way". "What do you expect Melina was a great girlfriend but when Criss found out she was using him for his fame it broke his heart". "I can't believe I'm going to suggest this but you remember Rachel Lynn's college friend. Well she's in town and I'm thinking of setting her and Criss up" JD suggested. "Wait a minute you mean like a blind date you know Criss won't go for that he'd make you disappear forever"Costa remarked. "If he doesn't think it is". "This is your idea not mine"Costa replied as they went into the production office. "Criss I need a favor"JD asked. Criss turned around. "What's that?" lookedf at his brothers. "Well you remember Lynn's college friend Rachel; well she's in town and I was wondering if you could show her around". "Why me?"he asked curious. "Don't ask me Lynn said ask Criss I don't trust Costa with Rachel" JD replied. "Hey!"Costa declared as Criss muffled a laugh. "All right I'll do it" and Criss left.
After JD talked Criss into the date he called his wife and told him the plan. "You are bad JD". "I'm not bad I'm just concern beside I think Rachel and Criss would make a perfect couple". "All right but if Criss finds out this is a date he'll kill you and hide your body probably next to Hoffa's remains"she remarked and hung up. At the company Rachel waited at the bar. She 's a good looking woman with her shoulder length brownish blonde hair. She too has had trouble dating but it wasn't because of the men she dated it was her family that made some of her boyfriends run for the border but she hoped that this date would go good. "Rachel"a voice said. She turned around and saw Criss. "Christopher boy you've changed since Lynn and JD had Dimitra"she remarked as Criss smiled. "Well why don't we go for a walk down Freemont street"Criss suggested as they left. As they walked they talked about everything from their past to what they do now.
"So you work with your father?". "Yea I do the bills and stuff"she said. "What about your mom?". "My mom passed away when I was five weeks old my dad and my brothers raised me"she replied looking down. "I'm sorry I didn't know" he remarked. "It's not your fault Criss". "How many brothers do you have?". "I'm one of five brothers"she replied. Criss whistled. "I think I'd go insane if I was the only boy in a family of women" Criss said as Rachel laughed. "I was a tom boy for a while untill I hit thirteen and when boys started to recognize me as a girl than a boy that's when my brothers' defensive natures came out “she stated. "I don't blame them"Criss replied as Rachel smiled. Then Rachel's phone went off. She saw it was her brother Donnie. "Hello Donald what can I do for you?"she remarked. "Just wanted to see how you were since you never been to Las Vegas before". "Donnie for once in your life stop checking up on me and don't tell the rest of the gang to call because I'm going to shut off this phone" and hung up.
"Big brother" Criss remarked. Rachel put her phone back in as her wallet fell out. Criss picked it up as he looked at a picture. "Your clan" giving it back to her. "Yup Donald the oldest, the twins, Jackson and Joseph, Mark, than Patrick and yours truly" as she pointed to each brother. "Well it's getting late and I have a show to do so we should get back,"Criss said as they walked back to the hotel. "You know what why don't you join me as my guest for Believe". "Sure Lynn's been telling me how wonderful and exciting the show is". As they walked back Criss started to feel better and felt like he had found someone to love.

When Rachel got back home she felt happy like she was floating on air. She hadn't felt that way in a long time. At her family's restaurant her brother Jack was looking over some reservation while Mark cooked. "Well I see the place hasn't burnt down down since I’ve been gone"she replied walking in. "Hey Ray how was Las Vegas"Jack asked giving her a hug. "Well the good thing is she didn't get drunk and got married"Mark called out from the kitchen. "No I got a quickie divorce before I came home," she joked as Mark and Jack laughed. "Where's dad?".
"Went to check out a site for the new restaurant with Donnie"he stated. Then he came looking angry. "Dad relax we'll talk to the zoning broad tomorrow". "What's wrong?"Mark asked coming out of the kitchen. "The family who owns the building next door where dad wants to put another restaurant won't sell the place"Donnie said. "What's the store?" she asked. "Some place called Monster Music"her father replied. "The lady said that her sons and her husband started the store what a bunch of-". "Dad relax we'll talk to the zoning broad tomorrow and see if we can move the place or kick them out" Donnie stated. "All right why don't we get ready for the dinner crowd". Back in Las Vegas JD was talking to his mom as Criss walked in. "Mom relax they can't do anything to us. All right I'll come down tomorrow" and hung up. "What's wrong with mom?"Criss asked leaning against his desk. "Some guy bought the store next to Monster and he wants the store Monster's in but mom won't sell and the guy's furious about it"JD stated. "Well that guy can pound sand Monster will never close"Criss replied. "Criss you remember a man by the name of Randall Avairy". "Doesn't he own Michelle's that Italian restaurant". "Yea he's the one who wants to close down Monster". "What a-". "Don't say it Criss remember you're trying to keep your language clean". "Oh yea" as he sat down. "I heard you and Rachel had a good time when she was here"JD remarked.
"Yea I really didn't want her to go". "Looks like cupid hit you with Rachel"JD said. Before Criss could say anything the crew came in and they started to work. The next day Donnie decided to take Rachel over to where they wanted to put the new restaurant. "I can't believe the zoning broad won't budge on this". "Donnie relax I swear you're just like dad"she remarked. "I'm just angry that we can't get this music store to move or close down. With the economy the way it is I'm surprise it's still open" he remarked. When they got to the site Dimtra was getting out of the car. "There's the woman that won't sell the place. Saying her kids started the place with their father. I'm not even sure she has kids or was even married" Donnie stated. "I swear Donnie you've got dad's temper ha-". Rachel stopped talking as she saw JD getting out of the car

Oh my god Criss's family own this place she thought. "Hello Ray Ray to Earth"her brother said waving his hands infront of her. "Sorry just got lost in thought" as they went into the place. As they went over the plans Rachel's phone rang. "Hello"she said. "Don't say a word just come outside" the voice replied. "Wait let me go outside the reception in here is terrible" and she went outside. She hung up her phone as JD did his. "JD I swear I didn't know your family owns-". "Come on let's go over to the park and talk so your brother and my mother don't see us talking" and they walked into the park. "JD if I knew that Monster Music is owned by your family-" she remarked. "Listen Rachel there is nothing you could of done. Right now we just need to keep this quiet". "JD what about Criss if he finds out my family wants to closes down your store it's going to turn into the Hatfields and the McCoys"she suggested.
"Or World War Three between your father and my mother"JD said. "Well for now it hasn't gone that far-". All of a sudden they heard sirens. Great my ather's temper strikes again as they ran out. When they came out of the park she saw her brother getting arrested and Dimitra talking to the cops. "Mom what happened are you all right?"JD asked running over to his mom. "I'm all right I came out here looking for you when that fool came out and started to argue with me telling me that I'm holding up his business venture". As Dimitra told them what happened Rachel talked to her brother who was sitting inside a police car. "YOU THREATED HER!! Oh my god what are you insane!!"she called out. "I was trying to imitate her". "Well I don't think it worked considering you're seating in a police car handcuffed. Dad is going to have a cow when he finds out about this" she replied. After that incident Rachel went back to the restaurant. As Rachel drove her phone went off and saw it was Criss. She pulled over to answer. "Hey Criss what's up?"she remarked.
"Well I was wondering when you're coming back to Las Vegas?". Rachel blushed. "Christopher are you falling for me?"she asked with a bit of a giggle. "Let's just say you've taking a bit of my heart when you left" he replied. "Well I don't know Criss my work keeps me business and so does my family". "So does mine but I find time to have some what of a social life"Criss remarked. "Let me think about it Criss I just got so much on my plate right now. I'll call you back" and hung up. When she got back Mark and Jackson were talking. "Hey where's Donnie?"Mark inquired. "Where he always is when the family's temper problem comes into play" she replied sitting down. "And I thought The anger management classes worked this time" Jackson remarked sitting with her. "Before I forget these flowers came for you from a guy named Angel" giving her a bouquet of different flowers. Christopher she thought as she smelled them.
"So you did meet a guy in Las Vegas come on tell us about him"Mark asked. "He's a nice guy he's Lynn's brother in law. It was a blind date but he didn't know it and I got to say I had fun with Criss" she said smiling. "Rachel we haven't seen you this happy in a while". "Yea but long distance relationship don't really work out" Rachel stated. "Listen if this guy is this happy to send you flowers from Nevada you took a piece of his heart when you left so try it you never known he might be the guy dad always said that will take you away from this place" Mark replied. "All right but keep this between you two I don't want dad or Donnie to know. You know how protective they are of me". "Our lips are sealed and if you don't mind I get to break the news to dad that Donnie needs bail money" and Jackson left. In Vegas Criss was in bed playing a game on his laptop when he saw he got an IM from a girl name Diner Girl.
DINERGIRL: Christopher it's Rachel
SARAN42: Rachel how did you find out my screen name-Let me guess Lynn
DINERGIRL: -I guess Lynn wasn't lying when she said you have great mentalism. I got your flowers they were beautiful but where did you know where to send them-Let me guess Lynn
SARAN42: Actually I found a piece of mail from you on JD's desk at his house. Maybe when I come back to New York you can take me to your family's restaurant and I can take you to my place of business in New York
DINERGIRL: -That would be nice. I also wanted to tell you I'm coming back to Las Vegas in a few months for JD and Lynn's wedding anniversary party so I'll see you there.
SARAN42: Can't wait I'll talk to you later (log off)

First of all, it's spelled "feud". Second, good job with the IM format.

A week went by and Criss decided to go to New York to surprise his mother and Rachel. At the restaurant she was taking a reservation as her father walked in. "I can't believe that woman saying Donnie threated her with harm". "Daddy I was there Donnie just has to learn threating people isn't going to get you anything expect a job with the mob maybe"she replied. "Now I know why your Uncle Tony loved you so much. I'm going to check on your brothers" and went to the back. Then Patrick came running in. "Rachel there's a guy outside asking for you". "If he's an officer I all ready paid that parking ticket" she remarked looking up. "No he drove up in a Viper I don't think a cop can afford that unless he's taking bribes". Rachel looked up. "Did you say Viper. Mind the stand" and went out. When she got outside her jaw fell to the ground leaning against the car was Criss. "Oh my god Christopher what are you doing here?" giving him a hug. "I thought I'd surprise you and my mom so how about I take you for lunch" he offered. "I would love to but I'm working Criss I maybe the youngest of this clan but I'm the one who didn't inherit my father's temper so I have to keep my brothers in line".
"Are you sure you're not Greek because I swear JD says something a little different than that once" as Rachel smiled. Then her father came out. "Rachel who is this guy?". "I'm Christopher Lynn's sister in law" he replied shaking hands. "Nice car who did you steal it from?"he asked. "Daddy"Rachel stated blushing. "Believe or not it's mine sir"Criss replied. Then Patrick came out. "Dad Mario just quit". Her dad was ready to pull out his hair. "That's the second person to quit in a week". "Daddy I keep telling you to let me run the staff not Donnie"Rachel stated. "I may do that if we keep losing employees"he replied. "Sir if you need help I don't mind I use to work in a diner with my dad when I was young" Criss offered. "Criss if you do I'll let you take my daughter out" and brought him in. In the back Criss was changing as Donnie came over. "So you're the new waiter my dad just hired I got to tell you I'm a hard ass and what I say goes". Now I understand why people keep quitting this guy is an :mad: Criss thought as he tied the apron around his waist. As the night went on Criss was doing a great job even helping in the kitchen when it got slow. After closing they all sat down.

"Christopher I have to say your father taught you well"her father remarked. "Even thou he passed away he always told me I'm a wonderful person" Criss replied smiling. "Rachel is the same way even thou she's the youngest she acts like she's the oldest instead" Mark stated as Rachel Smiled. "Well Criss since you did such a great job I'm going to keep my word and let you take out my daughter tomorrow night"he replied. "Wait a minute dad who's going to run the front?" Donnie asked. "I'm going to let Joseph run the front". "I should get going before my mom calls every police department in New York looking for me"Criss joked. "I see we have a mommy's boy here" Donnie said with a bit of a giggle. "He's very close to his mother Donnie and weren't you a mommy's boy. That's what Mark told me once"Rachel said. "I smell something burning" and Mark ran off as Donnie followed him.
"Let me walk you to your car Criss,"my father said and they went out. "All right Criss I tell this to all the boys my daughter has dated; if you try to hurt my daughter or do something that she doesn't want to do I will hunt you down and go Tony Soprano on your :mad:". "You don't have to worry about that sire I wouldn't do anything to Rachel she didn't want to do. My parents didn't raise three boys to be bad towards women"Criss replied. "Those are mine kind of people Criss thanks again for the help" and he went back in. When Criss got back to the hotel he wanted to impress Rachel but not too much. The next day as Criss put his date together Rachel was working on the bills when Donnie came in angry. "I can't believe that woman!!" he said as Rachel came out. "What did that woman do now"Joseph asked as Rachel listened in from the hall way. "She put a restraining order out on me and construction has stopped on the restaurant. That woman needs to pay for what she's doing"he remarked as he threw a plate at the wall. Rachel got nervous and called her father about Donnie. "Thanks for the heads up sweetie" and hung up as Patrick and Mark came in.
"Why did you rat out your brother for?". "Yea Uncle Tony would put a hit out on you"Mark stated. "Guys we don't mention Uncle Tony around here" Rachel remarked. Rachel went to her car and left. After she left Criss showed up. "Hey Patrick is Rachel here?"he inquired. "No you just missed her but I think I know where she went" Mark stated. Criss drove to a cemetery as he drove in his hands started to feel clamming. Ever since his father's funeral Criss started to hate cemeteries and he always kept away from them unless his mother guilted him into seeing his father's grave. He saw Rachel on the ground next to a grave marker. He got out and walked up to where she was and saw it was her mother's grave. Criss just stood there with his hands in his pockets. "Donnie's fired up just because the place where he wants to build his restaurant has another place in it. I can't tell the family that I know the people who own it. I met a guy mom he's such a nice guy mom dad even loved him when he helped out at the restaurant. You would love him too. I should get back before Mark burns the place down,". When she turned around she saw Criss standing there.
"Christopher what are you doing here?" wiping the tears away. "I wanted to talk to you about something but if I-". "No Criss it's all right it's kind of my way of talking to my mom" she replied. Criss walked over to her and gave her a hug which felt good to her. "Come on" . As Criss was opening the door his phone was ringing he saw it's his Aunt Stella. "Aunt Stella what's wrong. Is she all right I'll be right there" and hung up. Rachel saw the panic in Criss's face. "Christopher what's wrong?". "My mom walked into a robbery in progress and she got hurt". She took Criss's hands as they shook. "Criss you're in no condition to drive let me take you". "W-h-hat about your car?". She dialed a number. "Daddy it's Rachel can you pick up my car Criss's mom got hurt and I'm going to drive him to see her. Thank you" and hung up. "Thanks". "Come on!". Criss got into the passenger side as Rachel drove the car to the hospital.

At the Luxor JD was going over some stuff as Costa and John came in. "So bro why in god's name did Criss want to go to New York for?"Costa asked. "Yea your mom is coming for a visit in a couple of weeks" John replied. "Remember Rachel, Lynn's college friend well Criss fell in love with her" JD replied. "I should of known considering he falls in love every five minutes" John said. JD slapped John upside the head. "Are you serious that Rachel stole our brother's heart" Costa remarked surprise. "Hook line and sinker but-". JD trailed off as he sat down . "Come on JD what's wrong with her?" John inquired. "I don't want to hurt Criss if he finds out" JD replied. "Don't tell me he's dating another Melina that will send Criss right up to The Luxor light and jump" Costa stated. "It's her family that's the problem" JD replied.
"What Criss dating a girl in the witness relocation program or worse the mafia" John stated. "You've been watching The Sopranos too much" Costa remarked. "I don't think she is it's just-". Before JD finished his thought the phone rang so he picked it up. "Hello". "JD it's Criss". "Criss what's wrong you should scared". "I got a call from Aunt Stella mom walked into a robbery in progress and got hurt" Criss replied. "How bad is she?"JD asked as Costa and John got up. "Right now they're doing a CT scan on her just make sure she didn't hurt her head" Criss replied. "Christopher I'm going to get on the first flight out there". "No JD I'm here I won't leave until I hear something"Criss replied. "All right Criss just call me when you hear something" and JD hung up. After JD hung up he ran his hands through his hair. "What's wrong with mom don't tell me it's her heart again" Costa stated. "Mom walked into a robbery in progress and they attacked mom to boot. Criss is at the hospital right now waiting on information".
"Who would beat up a seventy-five year old woman?" John inquired. "Drug addicts maybe" JD replied. At the hospital Criss was ready to climb the walls as Rachel came over with some coffee. "Here Criss" giving him one. "Thanks," as he sat down. "I wish the doctor would come and talk to me I'm ready to run up the wall thinking the worst". Then Rachel took out her phone and dialed a number. "Hey Jack it's Rachel is your girlfriend Stacey working in the ER today. She is thanks," she remarked and hung up. "Be right back" and went to the ER. When she walked in Rachel saw Stacey talking to another nurse. "So this where my tax dollars are going" she joked. Stacey walked over. "What are you doing here Ray don't tell me Donnie's temper got away again?". "From now no but my boyfriend is ready for the nut house. His mother was attacked and none of the doctors have talked to him" Rachel said.
"What's her name?" She asked. "Dimitra don't ask me how to pronounce the last name I keep butchering it"she said a little embrassed. "Here we go Dimitra Sarantakos well she just came back from CT no concussion. We're waiting on some x-ray and after that they're going to stitch up a laceration on her head than your boyfriend can take her home" Stacey replied. "Thanks Stacey I owe you" Rachel remarked. "How about dinner on the house" Stacey suggested. "If you want to eat on the roof-". "Very Funny Rachel"Stacey said laughing as Rachel left.

When she got back Criss was looking out the window. As she got closer she heard Criss saying something. Παρακαλείστε να ενημερώσετε το μαμά είναι εντάξει μπαμπά, δεν είμαι έτοιμος να αφήσει να αφήσει αυτόν τον κόσμο ακόμη (Please let mom be all right dad I'm not ready to let her leave this world yet). "Christopher," she said. Criss turned around as he wiped some tears from his face. "I talked to my friend your mother is going to be all right they're waiting on some x-rays but so far she has a laceration that needs to be closed". "Thank you" Criss muttered.
"I didn't know you spoke Greek ?". "I know a few words, sentences and some prays that my grandma tuaght my brothers and I. Do you speak another language" he asked curiously. "A little Italian My Uncle Tony told me that I was the only one in the family that wanted to learn how to speak in Italian" she replied taking a sip of her coffee. "Say something to me in Italian" Criss asked. Rachel was nervous she hadn't spoken Italian since her grandmother came to visit when she was seven but she decided to go for it and hoped she didn't screw it up. Tu sei il Mindfreak Christopher ma sarai sempre il ragazzo di una mamma (You are the Mindfreak Christopher but you'll always be a momma’s boy). "What did you just say?" Criss said impressed. "That you have to find out on your own" she replied smiling. Criss gave her a kiss as someone cleared her throat. Criss looked and it was his mom. "Maybe I should give you guys some time to yourself".
"No how are you Dimitra?" Rachel asked. "I just can't believe what I walked into at Monster Music" she remarked. "Well I hope they catch the guys who did this to you mom" Criss remarked giving his mom a hug. "Do you remember anything what they looked like or tattoos?" Rachel asked. "They were all wearing masks and dark clothing" she replied. Criss sat his mom down. "Mom until these guys are caught you're going to be staying with Lynn and Dimi" Criss stated. "What about the store?" she asked. "I'll call JD and see if he can help out" Criss replied. "Come on let's get out of here" Rachel suggested. "Good idea" and they left. As they dropped off Dimitra Rachel suggested that she'd pick up some food from her family's restaurant. "That's really nice Rachel thank you" Dimitra stated. "I'll be right back" and took Criss's car. When she got there Joseph was outside while Jack was running the front. In the kitchen Rachel was talking to the chef when her father came in.
"Rachel what are you doing here I thought you and Criss had a date tonight"she stated. "It was put off Criss's mom walked into a robbery in progress and got hurt so I'm picking up some dinner for them" she replied packing up some meatballs. "Sweetie you are an angel just like your mom so tell me is Criss's mom all right?" her father inquired. "She's fine just some stitches dad there's something that's been brothering me" she said. "What's that sweetie pie?"he asked. Before she could say anything Donnie came in and asked if he could talk to his father. "I'll be right back" and he left. After Rachel got the foods she went to say good-bye to her father. She got to the door and she heard them talking. "That lady fought back!!" her father stated. "Who knew a seventy-five year old woman could, but Randall knocked her out before we could finish maybe she'll sell her property now to us" Donnie replied. "Let's hope so" he replied.
Oh my god dad what have you done she thought as she left. A she drove to Lynn's house she decided to make a pit stop. She stopped at a club in Brooklyn. Before she went in she called Criss. "Hey Rachel where's the food we're starving here" Criss said when he answered the phone. "Very funny Christopher. I just have to drop off something for my dad and I'll be there so don't fill up on bread" she replied. She heard Criss giggle "All right" and hung up. She walked in and looked around as all the guys were looking at her like she was an alien. "Rachel is that you?"a voice called out.

Walking up to her was a guy that was overweight with some grey hair and a cigar in his mouth to boot. "Hey Uncle Tony" she remarked giving him a hug. "The last time I saw you was in your first communion dress your mother would have been so happy to see what you look like now. Please sit down" he stated. They walked over to a table as the guys went back to playing cards and darts "Uncle Tony I've got a problem and you're probably the only family I can trust with this secret". "What is it my little cannoli?" he asked looking into her green eyes. "Dad and Uncle Donnie have been trying to get a sweet lady to sell her property but she won't so Donnie broke into her business but she walked into it and they hurt her to boot. I heard dad saying that maybe after this she'll sell the property. I think dad was in on it" she stated trying not cry.
Her uncle looked very unhappy at this news his niece has just told him. "Are you serious your brother and father conspired to do that to a sweet lady do you know this woman?" he asked. "I'm dating her son Criss Angel" she replied blushing a little. Then a light blub came on in her uncle's head "Wait a minute is his last name Sarantakos?". "Yes Uncle Tony do you know them" she remarked. "I knew their father John I was friends with them. I was even his best man at his wedding to Dimitra. Wow Christopher became a well-known magician I can't believe I didn't put it together when I saw Mind Freak" he replied. "Uncle Tony you have to talk to dad before he and Donnie do something that may hurt or kill Dimitra or their business" she asked. "You mean that music store Monster Music" he remarked. "Yes Uncle Tony". "Don't worry my sweet I'll talk to your father and brother. Do me favor I want you to give this to Dimitra". He went over to his desk and took something out of his desk. He gave it to his niece.
"All right and thank you again" she remarked and gave her uncle a kiss. When she got back JD was there. "JD what a surprise to see you" as Criss took the bag. "This smells good Rachel let's see Stuffed shells, baked ziti, Dam look at the size of these meatballs I could bowling with these" Criss joked laying out the boxes on the table. After Rachel hung up her coat she walked over to Dimitra who was sitting on the couch. "Dimitra I have something for you" giving her the envelope. "What's that mom?" JD asked coming over. She opened and it was a black and white photo. Tears started to fall down Dimitra's face. "Mom what's wrong?" Criss asked walking over. " Nothing I remember when this picture was taking it's when your father proposed to me" wiping away the tears. "Who's the guy in the back with a cigar?"Criss asked as he looked at it over his mom's shoulder.
03-05-2013, 08:18 PM
"That's Anthony Dellfeno he grew up with your father he was the best man at our wedding and gave your dad the money to buy the house when I was pregnant with you JD," she stated. "Wait a minute I remember a guy like this coming to dad's wake he said something to you in Italian and gave you a kiss before leaving" Criss remembered. "Tony had such a crush on me but he knew your father did too so Tony let your father have me but I knew he'd never stop caring for me. He even sent me my favorite flowers when I was in the hospital after my heart surgery" she replied smiling. We all smiled as I took a look at it. "That's sweet I wonder if he's still around" JD inquired. "Well why don't we eat before I fall over from hunger" Criss said as everyone made plates for themselves.
Rachel even made one for Dimitra. After dinner Criss went outside to think as Rachel followed him. "Not the first date you wanted". I'm sorry about tonight I'll make it up to you I swear" he stated. "Don't worry Criss I saw a side of you that I don't think a lot of your fans see how much you love your mom," she remarked. Criss smiled. "I should get going to check to see how my brothers did with out me". She gave a kiss to Criss and went in and gave Dimitra a hug. "It was nice to meet you Rachel"Dimitra stated. "It was nice to meet you Dimitra". Rachel leaned into whisper something to Dimitra. "If you want to see Tony I know how to get a hold of him". "How?" she asked softly. "My Uncle Tony gave me that and he still smokes those Greek cigars your husband always gave him for his birthday" as she left.
03-05-2013, 08:30 PM
When Rachel got back to the restaurant Jack and Patrick were outside smoking. "I thought you guys were going to quit". "Yea we will some day" he remarked. She went in and saw her father and her brother sitting at a table. "Daddy Donnie". They turned around. "Rachel what are you doing back?" her father inquired. Before she could answer the door opened and her uncle walked in. "Anthony I told you to stay away from this restaurant!"my father exclaimed. "You forget that I'm a silent partner in this restaurant" Tony reminded him. "What do you want Uncle Tony we're going over the plans for the new restaurant" Donnie remarked. "That's not going to happen Donald I'm not putting up the money for it" he stated.
"What you told me you would Uncle Tony" her brother replied. "I changed my mind when I heard who owns the business next door". "What!! That :mad: woman she'll sell me that property just you wait" her father said. "I don't think so daddy" she replied. "And you know this because-". "Because I'm dating her son!" I blurred out. My brother and father looked like their eyes were about to pop out. "I thought his last name is Angel it can't be that family" my father said. "That's his stage name daddy his full name is Christopher Nicholas Sarantakos he and his brothers JD and Costa opened up Monster Music with a little help from their father" she replied. "Unless you find another place to build your restaurant I'm not putting a dime into it" and her uncle left. Her brother and father were angry so she left before she caught in the cross fire. The next day a knocking at the door woke her up. She got up and opened the door. At the door with two cups of coffee and a bag was Criss.
"I thought since our dinner date didn't go so well I thought I'd bring you breakfast" he stated smiling. She let Criss in but Rachel took one look at herself and excused herself to change. After she changed into something nice Criss was waiting for her. "Sorry about that so what do you have?". "A blueberry muffin for me and a carrot cake for you" giving her. "My favorite how did you know?" she asked smiling. "I talked to your brother Joe and he told me your favorite cake is Carrot cake" he remarked. Rachel put her muffin down and got up. "Something wrong Rachel?" Criss asked. "It's my family Criss"she remarked looking like she was about to cry. "What do you mean?" Criss inquired. Then a banging at the door could be heard. "RACHEL OPEN THE :mad: DOOR NOW!!".
"Noway go away Donald!!" she called out locking the door. "What's going on Rachel?" Criss inquired getting up. The door started to jiggle and shaking. "My brother has a temper a bad one and he gets violent. I let him in once and I got hurt so I don't let him in when he's like this" she replied looking scared. "IS THAT :mad: IN THERE LET ME IN AND I'LL TEACH HIM AND HIS WHOLE FAMILY A LESSON!!" he yelled trying to open the door. "I'm calling the cops!"Criss said dialing the number. As Criss got a hold of the cops Donnie broke the door down and he looked infuriated. He walked over to his sister and slapped her knocking her to the ground. "I can't believe you ratted me out to Uncle Tony". Rachel sat on the floor. "I had to Donnie you could of killed Dimitra" she replied. Donnie was about to hit her again but Criss grabbed his hand. Donnie looked up at Criss as he let go of his hand. "So Mindfreak my sister informed us that your family owns the property I need for my restaurant. I thought I got through your mother's head when I knocked her out how bad I wanted the building" he replied. "You hurt my mom"Criss stated.
"Your is tough little woman!!". Criss punched Donnie knocking him to the ground. Rachel got up and stood behind Criss. "Nice punch Christopher and I thought Greek were a bunch of :mad: ". "Criss don't he's trying to get under your skin" Rachel stated. The police came in and arrested Donnie as they asked if Rachel was all right. "Yea I'm fine and he just confessed to the assault of Dimitra Sarantakos I'll testify to it" she replied. "You're dead sis you're dead"he yelled as Criss hugged her. "It's all right Rachel" Criss said. At the club Anthony was playing some darts when the phone rang. "Hello". "Tony it's Marty down at the station your nephew Donnie is in a whole lot of trouble he broke into his sister's apartment assaulted her, and he's being charged with the assault of Dimitra Sarantakos". "Is my niece all right?"he asked fearing the worst. "She's fine thanks to a one Christopher Sarantakos who was there with her". "Just keep him in there and make sure he learns a lesson" he stated. "Got it" and hung up

A week went by and Rachel was at work. She hated that Criss had to go back to Las Vegas but Rachel knew she was going to see him soon. Her brother Donnie on the other hand pleaded not guilty to charges and was out on bail. At the restaurant Rachel was doing the books when a knock came to the door. "Come in" she called out and Joe came in. "How you doing?" shutting the door behind him. "Good but dad isn't happy with me"she replied. "You put a TRO on Donnie he can't even come within a hundred feet of you"Joe remarked. "Joe I did that for my own protection. You know Donald when he loses his temper" she remarked getting up. "I see where you're going and speaking of going when are you leaving for Nevada to see your man" he asked smiling.
Rachel giggled like a school girl at her brother. "You have such a sick mind Joseph". Joe gave Rachel a hug and left. When Joe came out he saw his father arguing with someone outside. As he got closer the guy left and dad came in pist. "Who was that?"Joe asked. "A lawyer it seems your Uncle Tony is firing me and putting the restaurant in your sister's name"he replied ready to spit fire. "You mean Rachel is going to running the restaurant". In her office the phone rang. "Hello Michelle's". "You know I just love hearing you say hello". Rachel chuckled. "Hey Christopher what can I do for you?" she asked. "Nothing I guess missed you so I thought I'd call just to hear your voice"he replied. "Christopher I give you an A for effort but you fail at flirting,". She heard giggling on the other line."Christopher you better not have me on speaker phone". Criss and Rachel sitting in a tree k-i-s-s-i-n-g. First come Love than come marriage than Criss sitting in a baby carriage could be heard in the background. "Excuse me".
She heard a door shutting before the sound of kissing sound could be hear. "I swear I work with immature people sometimes" Criss replied. "Hey Criss should I put the priest on stand-by" a voice called out. "Rachel I'll call you back Ihave to sign a few pink slips" and Criss hung up. Criss came out of his bedroom. "You guys are so immature sometimes" throwing a pillow at Costa. "Come on Criss we were just pulling your leg"Doug remarked. "Can't you take a joke?". "Guys I really love this girl and I don't want her to think I work with immature idiots or I'm one so please grow up" Criss stated. "All right we'll tease you when she's not around" JD said. Back at the restaurant Rachel came out as Joe came running over. "Rachel you better snick out the back dad is ready to blow his top"he said. "Why?" she asked getting up. "Uncle Tony's lawyer came over and gave dad his walking papers. You're in charge of the restaurant". She came out of her office while her father was on the phone.
"What do you mean I can't fight it. What kind of lawyer are you!" and hung up. "Daddy,". He turned around. "Dad please don't be angry at me I had no clue Uncle Tony would do this" she remarked. "Really maybe you talked him into it since you're his favorite" he replied taking a drink of wine. "You know what dad I'm happy he left me in charge now I can fix up this place like firing Donnie". My father turned around. "You would fire your own flesh and blood!!" he replied in shock. "Dad you have to stop babying him. His anger is never going to get under control if you try to sweep it under the rug" she remarked. "I won't let you do that". "You have no say anymore dad and I'm going to bring Joe in the restaurant to take over Donnie's job" she said. Her father got up and hit Rachel knocking her to the ground. Joe and Patrick came over and escorted their father out. Back in Las Vegas Criss had just finished Believe when he noticed two guys in tailor suits standing at his production office door.
"What with the guys near the production office did Al Capone raise from the dead or does Costa owe money to the Greek Mafia?"Criss asked JD coming over. "A guy named Tony wanted to talk to you they're his body guards"JD replied. A chill went down his back. "Why do I feel like I got into bed with the mafia" as they walked to his office.
03-12-2013, 04:34 PM
Before he walked in Criss was padded down. "Watch where you put those hands please" Criss said. "You're clean" and they walked in. In his office sitting there with a cane and drinking a martini was Tony. "You must be Tony" Criss stated holding out his hand. "Christopher you have your father's eyes and his manners" shaking his hand. "Also our father's stubborness" JD added. "I remember that part of John very well Joseph" he remarked. Then a light blub came on in Criss's head. "You're Anthony my parents' friend" Criss replied. "Very good Christopher and I must say you have done such a good job with your magic career" he said. "So what are you doing here in Las Vegas?"JD asked as Criss and JD sat down.
"I escorted my niece down here and to ask you a favor". "What's the favor?" Criss asked. "Well I need you to keep my niece safe her father did something that made me sick to my stomach. He hit his daughter my niece. I nearly wanted to kill him when I saw the black eye he gave her thank god her brothers escorted their father out and brought her to me"Tony stated. "You must really love your niece to escort her here" Criss remarked. "She's my only niece her mother my sister asked me on her death bed to watch over her and I have even thou her father has tried to keep me out of her life" he stated. "We kind of did the same thing with our dad. To watch over our mom" JD said. Then one of the bodyguards came in. "Your niece is waiting in the atrium". "Please after you boys" and they left. In the atrium Rachel was standing in the atrium with a pair of sunglasses on when she saw her uncle walking over with Criss and JD.
"Christopher!!"she called out. Criss ran over and gave her a hug. Criss took off the glasses and saw the black eye. Criss felt angry towards her father. A man should never hit a woman even if it's his daughter he thought. Criss also felt happy that Rachel was all right. "I can't believe your father did that to you" touching her face. "Well now that I'm here in your arms I feel safe all ready" she stated and kissed Criss. They walked over to her uncle and JD. "Thank you again Uncle Tony for bringing me here" she remarked hugging him. "It was my pleasure and Criss I want you to keep my niece safe". "I will you have my word sir" he stated. "Tony if you would like to my mother is coming in from New York in the morning why don't you stay over and see her"JD suggested. "I don't know I have a lot of work to do in New York" he said. "Uncle Tony it would make Dimitra's day seeing that picture brought tears to her face so please for me" Rachel asked. "I could never say no to you all right". That night Criss was thinking about what was going on when a knock came to the door. Criss got up and at the door was JD.
"What's up?" Criss asked. "I just wanted to see how you were and how you were feeling". Criss let his brother in and they sat down. "Honestly my head is spinning like a top. I love Rachel but with her brother Donnie trying to get the property that Monster Music stand on and than finding out her father hit her giving her a shiner I don't know if this relationship can work out" Criss remarked. "Criss Rachel loves you enough to have her uncle escort her down here". "Also her uncle why would her father try to keep this guy away from her. What is he involved with the Mafia or something" Criss inquired. "What you think if you break Rachel's heart her uncle going to have you whacked"JD stated with a bit of laughter. "You and John have to stop watching those Mafia movies" Criss remarked. "Just relax Criss I'm joking why don't you get some sleep" and JD left. The next day Criss came down and saw Rachel looking at some jewelry in a window. "See anything you like?" Criss asked spooking Rachel. "Criss you spooked me". "Where's your uncle and his guards?" he asked. "My uncle isn't a morning person but he can't wait to see your mom again" Rachel remarked. "Rachel I can't believe I'm going to say this but is your Uncle Tony you know involved-".
"What with the mafia like in the God Father or The Sopranos?". "Yea" Criss replied. Before Rachel could answer Costa ran over. He whispered something in his ear and Criss ran off with Costa. Upstairs her uncle was woken up by a phone ringing. "If this isn't a beautiful woman I'm hanging up" he stated rubbing his eyes. "Tony it's Vinnie your nephew and brother in law have got off the deep end with getting the land that Monster Music sits on". Her uncle sat up in bed. "What did they do?". "They burned the place down and with a little help they had their insurance coverage null and voided made it look like they never paid for it". Tony was ready to kill them and bury their bodies in the desert. "Thanks Vinnie" and hung up.
03-25-2013, 02:53 AM
In JD's room Criss was on the phone with the insurance company. "Null and void I pay those premium every month on time. It says I miss three payments in a row. Let me take to your boss because I think your computers are wrong" and Criss was put on hold. "Miss three payments my Greek :mad: I did"Criss muttered. "Does mom know?" Costa asked. "I don't know"JD remarked. "Son a :mad: they cut me off". Criss slammed the phone down and sat down. "Now what do we do with out the insurance money we can't rebuild Monster Music" JD stated. "Did they say how it happened?". "They're saying someone set the fire". "Great they'll probably think we did it"Costa stated. "I bet you my life savings that Rachel's brother did it just to get that land" Criss remarked. "Me too" JD stated. Downstairs Rachel was looking at a few things when her uncle came down. "Rachel" he said. She walked over and saw her uncle didn't look happy. "What's wrong?".
"Your brother and father did something very wrong they burned down your boyfriend's business" he stated. Rachel's mouth fell to the ground. "Are you sure?" she asked hoping for once her uncle was wrong. "It's true I've had your brother followed since that trouble at your house for your protection of course" he stated. "That's why Criss left in such a hurry I'm so angry at my brother and father right now". "it's gets worse your father's connections at the insurance company he had their insurance voided. With out that insurance money they can't rebuild". "Uncle a new ordination was passed last year if a company has gone bankrupt or can't rebuild that property will be sold at auction. The next auction is in two weeks" Rachel replied fearful. Her phone rang and saw it was Patrick. "Patrick please tell me what I'm hearing isn't true". "It is sis Monster Music burnt to the ground. Four alarms only the outside is standing". Rachel mumbled some choice words under her breath. "Do they know how it started?" she asked. "Not yet but they're saying the a word" he stated. "Thanks Patrick" and hung up. Tears started to fall from Rachel's face. Her uncle hugged her. "Don't worry baby everything will be all right I promise you now why don't you go comfort Criss" he suggested.
She gave her uncle a kiss and left. In the office the boys were thinking when a knock came to the door. Costa opened the door and Rachel was standing there. "Hi guys I just heard about what happened I'm so sorry" walking in. "Thanks Rachel" Criss remarked. Rachel went over to Criss and gave him a hug. "I just can't believe someone burnt down Monster dad's probably turning in his grave about now" Costa said. "DAM IT!!"JD declared. "What's wrong JD?" Rachel asked. "I forgot about that ordination they passed if we can’t rebuild that property will be put up for auction"JD stated. "When the next auction?"Criss asked. "Two weeks". "TWO WEEK it will take a couple of months to figure out this mess!"Criss replied. "Guys how would you feel about taking some money from a friend?" she suggested. "What do you mean?"Costa inquired. "Well I can ask my uncle if he would lend you the money and you guys can pay him back". "That's a nice offer but I don't want to be in debt to your uncle Rachel"Criss replied. "Well I have to go get mom so I'll see you guys later" and JD left.
Upstairs in his room Tony was on the phone. "Thanks Fred I'll talk to you later" and hung up as Rachel came in. "How's Criss and his brother doing with the news?". "They're upset I even offered to help but they couldn't take the offer I guess for pride" she stated. "I just talked to Fred your father and brother put a bid in for Monster Music". Rachel swore in Italian. "Uncle Tony what can we do my father and brother planned this I can't let them get away with it. After everything that they've done to Dimitra and Criss's family" she replied. "Don't worry you stay here and help your boyfriend out I'll go back to New Yorrk and see what I can do to help from that end". "What about Dimitra?". "I'll catch up with her later". He gave her niece a kiss and left.
03-25-2013, 03:02 AM
Back downstairs Criss decided to do some work to keep his mind occupied but it wasn't helping. "Christopher". Criss looked up and saw his mom. He got up and went over to her. "Hey mom I guess you heard about the store". Criss noticed some tears falling down his mother's face. "JD told me and what's going with the insurance". "It's worse that until we can figure out what's going with the insurance we can't rebuild so the building is going to be put up for auction". Dimitra started to cry as Criss held his mom while tears fell down his face as well. Outside Rachel saw what was going on in the production office. Don't worry Criss my family won't get away with this and left. Back in New York Tony went to see the damage and couldn't believe what he saw. He remembers being here when the place first open and the happiness he saw on John's face. "It's such a shame this happened" a voice said. Tony turned around and saw an African American man standing there. "I know I was here when this place first opened" Tony remarked.
"I bought my first drum set from this place one of the guys that worked here Criss taught me how to play them. Now I'm teaching my son how to play with the drums I bought here" he stated. Then they saw a couple of kids come by and left flowers and poster boards that said: GOODBYE MONSTER, IT'S A SHAME THIS HAD TO HAPPEN. After they left the flowers Donnie showed up and took the flowers and threw them out and ripped the poster board in half than threw it in the trash. "Give it up in a week this building will be mine" he stated. Everyone started to scream and yell at him. Rachel's uncle couldn't believe what was going on and was shamed that this person is related to him so he left. That night Criss and his family were having dinner with Rachel. "I'm sorry that my uncle had to go back to New York Dimitra he really wanted to see you again"Rachel remarked. "It's all right we'll meet up again" Dimitra stated. Criss was sitting there just playing with his food. "You all right Christopher?". "Yea I'm just not hungry excuse me" and Criss left. "Criss is taking this the hardest" JD remarked. "I just wish there was someway we could rebuild Monster" Costa stated. Two weeks passed and Criss, his brothers, and Rachel came back to New York for the auction.
While Criss and his brothers went to see their mother Rachel went to see her father. When she got there she felt like she was ready to kill them. "So how your boyfriend and his family knowing tomorrow they're going to lose their property" with a bit of giggle in his voice. "Dad if I had proof that you and Donnie burned down Monster Music I'd turn you in. This is sick and sadistic what you're doing to them" she replied. "I'll make you a deal sell me your share of the restaurant and I'll take out the bid for the place. I'll even take care of their insurance mess". "That's blackmail dad and you can forget it" and Rachel left. Rachel went to where Monster stood. As she looked at it Rachel saw Criss pull up in his car. Criss got out and walked inside. Criss just looked around as Rachel got closer she saw tears falling down Criss's face. Rachel's heart ached as Criss picked up a burnt picture frame of him with his father and his brother in front of the building when it first opened. "I wish you were here dad I'm so confused and sadden by this"Criss remarked as tears fell on the picture. Tears even fell down her face. When Criss came out there was a note under the wiper. Criss took it and it said: THERE'S ONE WAY TO FIX THIS I HAVE TO MAKE A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL RACHEL
At the bank Rachel went into her strong box to take out the deed to her half of the restaurant. As she took it out she wondered if she should. Then she felt a hand on her shoulder. Rachel turned around and saw her uncle. "Please don't tell you're going sell your share of Michelle's to your father?". "I have to if Criss and his family want to keep Monster" she replied wiping the tears from her face. "Rachel your father will go back on his word if you do for me and your boyfriend don't make a deal with the devil" he remarked. Rachel put the deed back inside the deposit box and shut the door. "Come on" and they left the bank.
03-29-2013, 04:57 AM
Next day at the auction Rachel was outside when her father and brother showed up. "Last chance on the deal Rachel" he stated. "Sorry dad I'm not selling my soul to the devil" and went in. When she walked in she saw Criss giving someone a piece of paper before sneaking out. She knew that was the deed to the propriety which made Rachel's heart hurt and tears fall down her face. People started to come in even some of Criss's fans came in. When my father and brother came in the people in the back hissed and scream some choice words at them. "Shut up"my father replied. "All right first property on the auction block has been voluntary given there's a bid for fifty thousands dollars by Randall and Donald Aviary". Boos and hisses could be heard. "Going once going twice-". "Ninety-five thousand" a voice called out.
Everyone looked around wondering who just said that. "Please stand up who ever said that". Rachel stood up. I bid ninety-five thousand dollars for the property" she replied. She walked up and took out a cashier check from her purse. "I have a bid for ninety-five thousand going once going twice sold ". She gave them the check and they gave her the deed . The crowd cheered as she left the room but her brother and father followed her. "All right Rachel where did you get that money from?". "From me"a voice called out. Coming up the stairs was Mark, Patrick, Joe and Jackson". "How in hell did you four pull together that much money?"My father asked. "You remember mom's life insurance well she made Uncle Tony her benefactor. Uncle Tony gave all of us a split to do whatever we wanted to do with it so we used it to help Rachel and Criss's family"Jackson replied. "Than I use my half to buy it back"Donnie remarked.
"Actually Donnie your half of the money was used to bail you out of jail and for your lawyer that you're going to need for the case the police are putting together for Arson and assault to Dimitra" Joe stated. The police came over and arrested her father and Donnie. "What am I being arrested for?" he asked. "Aiding an abetting dad you knew that Donnie assaulted Dimitra and burned down Monster but you did nothing but try to profit from it" Rachel replied. The police took her father and brother away. "Shall we go see your boyfriend and tell him the good news" Patrick suggested. "I've got a better idea Jack does your friend Larry still work for that construction company". "Yea what do you have up your sleeve Rachel?" he asked. "I'll tell you in the car" she remarked and they left. The next day Criss and his brothers went to see Monster one last time. When they got there they saw it was being clean out of all the mess inside as contractors were going over the place. "I guess Rachel's father wanted to get started on working on the restaurant”. "Let's go I can't watch this"Criss remarked and they left. After they left Rachel and Uncle Tony came out. "Since the damage of the fire wasn't that bad you just have to replace some surport beans and some dry wall this place will be up and running again". "Thank you" her uncle replied and they left. "Criss and his family are going to be shocked when they find out about this"Rachel stated. "I can't either". He stated giving her a hug.
03-29-2013, 05:02 AM
As the days to week Rachel with a little help was putting Monster back together again. She was going over a few things when Patrick showed up. "Rachel you won't believe who just called me". "Who?" she asked. "Kid Rock he wants to donate some instruments". Her eyes nearly popped out of her head. Then Mark came over. "Rachel does the name Sully Ema mean anything to you" a little confused. "You mean Sully the lead singer of Godsmack; yea he's good friends with Criss"Rachel stated. "He wants to donate some stuff". "Excuse me" A voice called out. Rachel turned around and saw three teenagers standing there. "How can we help you?" she asked walking over to them. "Well it's kind of the other way around. We use to work here with Dimitra and JD" one of them said. "I would give violin lessons". "I would do drums and guitars" the other one added. "And I'd make sure the appointments were made so we were wondering if there's anyway we could help".
Mark and Patrick were surprised at this. "Sure we were just getting ready to paint if you would like to help" Patrick replied. "Can I do one thing?". "What's that?" Rachel inquired. "Well I'd well some of the kids at the high school do murals and we would like to do one for Monster Music and Criss's family" she replied. Rachel gave the girl her phone. "Just give them a call and tell them to bring whatever they need to do it" she replied. Back in Nevada Criss was feeling down in the dumps as memories of Monster went through his mind. "I wish you would buck up Criss you'll like the poster child for antidepressants" Costa remarked. "I can't help it I just can't believe Monster's gone"Criss stated. "Criss why don't you give Rachel a call and see if she wants to come down maybe seeing her will lift your spirits" JD suggested. "Why not" as Criss dialed my number. At the site Rachel was having some lunch when her phone went off. She saw it was Criss.
"Hello Mindfreak how are you?". "Down in the dumps I was wondering if you would come down and maybe lift my spirits"he suggested. "Hold on for a second I got my brother Jack on the other line". She put Criss on hold and went over to Patrick. "Pat do you think you could handle this Criss is inviting me to Nevada?". "Sure go" he stated. "Criss you still there?" she asked. "Yea so what did you brother want?". "Nothing important I'll be there with bells on". "Thanks I'm feeling better all ready" Criss remarked and hung up. At her house Rachel was getting ready to pack when a knock came to the door. She went to the door and saw it was Uncle Tony. She opened the door and let him in. "Hey unce what's up?". "I came by the site and Patrick told me you're going to see Criss". "Yea he seems a little down but don't worry I'm not going to tell him about what I'm doing" she remarked. "All right my little cupcake I just wanted you to give this to Criss" giving him an envelope. "All right" and gave him a kiss before he left.
03-29-2013, 05:07 AM
When Rachel arrived in Las Vegas JD was there waiting for her. "Hey JD" giving him a hug. "It's good to see you we heard your father and brother are in jail". "Yea for arson, assault and aiding and abetting. The judge was so angry at them he put bail at million each. My brothers were so angry that they have cut off my father and my brother Donnie out of their lives. I gave Mark control of the staff, Patrick runs the kitchen, Joe parks the cars and Jack does my job now" she replied smiling. "Come on" and they left. Back at The Luxor to get his mind in different direction Criss decided to put together the date he was going to take Rachel on before everything happened. He had everything ready and couldn't wait for Rachel to arrive. When they got there Criss came out and gave Rachel a hug and kiss. "I see someone's feeling better"JD replied as he took the luggage out. "Oh before I forget my Uncle Tony wanted me to give you this" and gave Criss an envelope. Criss opened it up and it was picture of her uncle holding a baby while his mother was sitting next to Tony.
"Hey JD come here for a second I know that's mom that her uncle but who's baby you, me or Costa?" Criss inquired. "I remember this it was you Christopher that was the day they brought you home. Dad was about to go get you and mom but the babysitter called and told him she couldn't make. By luck her uncle stopped by to drop off a gift so dad asked him to watch Costa and I while he got mom and you" JD replied. "My uncle always had a good sense of timing he was even there when I was born. Hell he delivered me" Rachel stated. "You serious?" JD said as Criss looked like his eyes were about to come out.
04-02-2013, 08:20 PM
"Yea since I wasn't due for another month my mother told my father to take the boys out for the day so he did. Little did he know about two hours after he left my mom's water broke. Since this was before cell phone my mother called her brother my uncle Tony to get her to the hospital. He rushed over and they were about maybe a mile away but I couldn't wait so my uncle pulled over and I was deliver on the side of the road in the back of my uncle's Cadillac". "This sound a little like your arrival expect it was snowing and you were born in the ER"JD stated as Criss rolled his eyes but Dimitra muffled a laugh instead.
"Christopher you never knew this until now but you came close to be delivered in the back of the family car thank god your father got pulled over and he got a police escort to the hospital" Dimitra said with a bit of laughter in her voice. "Thanks for telling me that bit of information come on I've got a surprise for you Rachel" and they went in. When she got to her room Criss told her to be ready at seven and wear something nice. "What do you have plan Angel?" she inquired. "You'll see"he remarked. Criss gave her a kiss and left as Rachel smiled. After Criss left Rachel called Patrick to see how things were going. "Everything is going great. I got a call from Vince Neil from Motley Crue and the lead singer of the group Korn they want to donate some guitars, drum sets, microphone stands". "Just make sure they don't tell Criss what's going on I can't wait to see Criss's face when this is done" she replied. "Uncle Tony wanted to know how Criss liked that picture".
"He was floored Patrick" Rachel remarked. "I'll tell Uncle Tony talk to you later sis" and hung up. Around seven Rachel was ready wondering what Criss had up his sleeve. Then the phone rang. "Hello". "You ready?" Criss asked. "Yup". "All right take the elevator down to the casino floor and meet at a restaurant called Mistero" and hung up. She went to the elevator and went down to the restaurant. When she got there the place was quiet. "Are you Rachel?" The mantree asked. She nodded. "Follow me" he replied. She escorted her to the middle of the restaurant. The place was so romantic it made her feel like she was Italy or somewhere else. The matree pulled out her seat and she sat down. He poured some wine for Rachel and told her to enjoy the meal. Rachel was wondering where Criss was as she looked around. What a romantic Criss is she thought. The door to the kitchen opened and a cook came out. "Mr. Angel sends his apology he's running a little behind" the man remarked in the worst Italian accent she's heard. He gave her a salad and left. After he left Rachel giggled. Then her phone rang.
"Hello". "Rachel I am so sorry my meeting ran long I'll be down soon I swear" he stated. "For a second I thought I was going to have a date by myself" she joked. Criss apologized one more time and hung up. Upstairs Criss was getting ready when he heard foot steps. "Costa" he called out. No answer Criss shrugged his shoulder and put on his tie. Then he heard the foot steps again. "Anyone there?". Without warning a rag was put over Criss's face. Criss struggled until everything went black. Downstairs Rachel was finishing her salad when her phone rang. "Criss you better get your Greek :mad: down here before I go looking for Costa".

"Hello sister". Rachel nearly dropped the phone. "Donnie what are you doing?" she asked standing up. "I have your man but if you want him back you give me the deed to Monster Music". "NOWAY!!". As her brother talked Rachel heard Janet Jackson's Black Cat playing in the background. "You neither give me that deed or your boyfriend will drown in front of millions of people" and hung up. She walked off and when she got out side she saw a flyer on the wall. It said:
TO ALL OF LAS VEGAS
COME TO MECCA IN CEASER PALACE AND SEE THE GREAT MAGICIAN CRISS ANGEL DO THE IMPOSSIBLE ESCAPE FROM A STRAIGHT JACKET WHILE IN A TANK OF WATER. WILL HE LIVE OR WILL THIS BE THE END OF THE GREAT MAGICIAN.
START TIME: 10:00
Rachel couldn't believe what was going on. She put the flyer in her pocket and went to find JD and Costa. Upstairs JD was having a poker game when a banging came to the door. "JD please open up it's Rachel!!"she called out. "I thought she was having dinner with Criss" Costa remarked. JD got up and opened the door. "Rachel what's wrong I thought you were having dinner with Criss". "We've got a problem my brother and my father are angry that I bought Monster property that they kidnapped Criss and they're going to kill Criss" showing him the flyer. Costa looked at the flyer. "This is an hour we got to stop this"Costa replied.
"Doug call the police and have them meet us at Mecca Rachel you stay here just incase your brother has another plan for you" and they left. Rachel ran up to her room and changed into some jeans, a dark blue shirt, a black hooded sweatshirt and sneakers. Before she left Rachel gave her uncle a call and told him what was going on. "Thanks for the update" he stated and hung up. Nobody is going to kill my god son he thought and left.

At Mecca the place was packed they were turning people away left and right. In the back Criss woke up and saw he upside down in a straight jacket. "What the-". "I see sleep beauty is awake". Criss looked around and saw Donnie. "What are you up to?"Criss asked. "Just a little justice my sister took what I wanted your property now I'm taking something from her you" and put a piece of tape over Criss's mouth. When JD and the cops got there the owner wasn't going to cancel the show. "Hey this my brother he didn't plan this. They're going to kill him now stop-". All of a sudden the curtain came up and two people dressed in dark clothes came out as Criss was lowed down. Criss was squirming while his mouth was covered with tape. JD and the cops tried to get through the crowd but they couldn't. Once Criss was put in the water they locked the top. Criss was trying his best but he couldn't get out and everything started to go dark. All of sudden two people got on stage and the two grabbed the two people in dark.
They took off the hoods and it was Rachel's father and brother. As the police arrested them JD tried to get the box open but it was lock. "WHERE'S THE KEY?" he yelled. Before they said anything a person came out and broke the glass box with a sledge hammer The box shredded and the water came out like a wave. The third one took off her hood and it was Rachel. JD helped Rachel take Criss down as the police took her brother and father away. She took the tape off Criss's mouth as she checked to see if Criss was alive. "JD he's isn't breathing!"She declared.

Rachel started to do mouth to mouth on Criss. As she did that Criss started to shiver. "JD we need to get these clothes off of him he's losing body heat" she replied. "Let's get him off the stage" and they brought him to the back where the manger brought them into his office. "His breathing but it's too labored" Rachel stated. JD took off the straight jacket and Criss's clothes leaving him only in his tidy whiteys. "JD take off your coat and cover Criss with it we got to warm him up" she replied. "How?". Rachel took off her jacket and put it under Criss's head. "Hand me that blanket on the couch over there". JD handed it to her she put the blanket over her and laid down next to Criss as she bear hugged him. "This isn’t the time for that"JD remarked "Very funny no I’m giving Criss some of my body heat I did this once when my brother Joe fell through the ice when we were little"she replied.
The shivering started to subside as the manger came in with some blankets and put them on Criss and Rachel. “Come on Criss open your eyes”Rachel muttered hugging Criss with all her might. Then Criss's eyes started to open. "What happened?"Criss asked. He turned and saw Rachel laying next to him. "You know this isn't the way I thought we had a first date by me saving your life" she remarked as JD chuckled. When the paramedics came they took over and packed Criss up. "JD why don't you go with Criss I have some unfinished business with my brother and father" she replied and left. When JD came out they were loading up Criss. "Where's Rachel?" Criss asked. "Taking care of some family business" as he got into the ambulance with Criss. Rachel came out and the two guys that were there were waiting for her. "How's Angel?" one of them asked. "He'll survive Vinnie" she said. "Your uncle will be happy that he's god son will be all right". Rachel felt like her eyes were about to pop out. "Did you say god son?".
"Yea his mother made him his god son like your his god daughter" the other one stated. What are the odds that his god children would fall for each other she thought. "Well your father and brother were taking to the police station a few minutes ago". "I would of loved to have hit them for doing that to Criss just because of some land" she stated. "Don't worry Rachel" and they left.

That night Criss was asleep in his hospital room when he woke up Criss saw Uncle Tony. "Hey Christopher my niece told me what happened I had to see if your were all right" he stated. "I'll be fine thanks to Rachel giving me some of her body heat" he replied with a smile on his face. Uncle Tony laughed. "Very funny but I have a surprise for you and your family so when you're up to it fly back to New York all right". "Sure can I ask you something?"Criss Inquired. "What's that Mindfreak?". "Did Rachel really buy Monster Music's property right from under her father's and brother's nose?". "She wanted to surprise you but, yes she did with a little help from her mother and her brothers minus Donnie. Rest up Mindfreak" and he left. As Criss got better Rachel went back to New York to see how Monster was coming. When she came in the place looked awesome.
"What do you think?"Joe asked as Patrick cleaned some of the glass. "Oh my god Criss and his family are going to be thrilled when they see this" she replied. That night Criss was finishing up some stuff when a knock came to the door. "Come in" he called out and JD came in. "How you feeling?". "Good what's going on?". "Mom just called it seem Rachel has a surprise for us and she wants us to come to New York as soon as we can". "I don't think I want to go"Criss said getting up. "Why?". "Because she owns the property that the music store was on. Maybe she's inviting us to show us what she did and I'm not up to it" he replied. In New York Rachel was working on the books at the restaurant when the phone rang. "Michelle's"she remarked. "Hey sweetie". "Christopher so when are you and your brothers coming to New York?" Rachel inquired. "That's the problem I can't find the time to come down. Why do you think my mom comes to Las Vegas to see me" he replied. Rachel giggled. "Come on Criss Felix would let you come down and I have a surprise for you and your family. Just find away pleassssssssssse" she begged. "All right" Criss remarked.
"Thank you Christopher" she said and hung up as Jack came in. "Do you think he'll come?". "Fingers crossed" Rachel stated. Back in Las Vegas Criss was walking to Felix's office when he ran into him literally. "Sorry about that Felix" Criss said helping Felix up. "No problem I was just coming to see you it seems you've added up a lot of vacation time" he remarked showing Criss. "Wow I could take the next six months off" Criss said as Felix chuckled under his breath. "Well I was thinking that you could use some of it and go surprise your mom" Felix suggested. You’re trying to tell me something dad Criss thought. "All right do you mind if I start this vacation in three days". "Fine with me Christopher" and Felix left. After that Criss called Rachel. "Michelle's". "Hey Rachel it's Criss I found the time and I'll see you in three days" he stated. "All right Christopher" and hung up with a smile on her face.

When the three days passed Criss and his brothers got to New York. When they landed a guy in a suit was waiting for him holding a sign that said: ANGEL. "You here for us?"JD inquired. He nodded and the guys got in. When they got in Dimitra was in the limo with Lynn and Little D. "What are you guys doing in here?"Costa inquired as they all got in. "We were at Grandma's house when that guy knocked at our door and asked us to come with him said he had a surprise for the family" Dimi stated. Everyone was wondering what was going on when the parchment came down. "This is for Dimitra" and gave JD an envelope. The parchment went up as JD passed the envelope to his mom. She opened it and she nearly lost her breath when she saw it. "What is it mom?"Criss asked.
Dimitra couldn't speak as she showed it to Criss. It was picture of Criss, his brothers and his father cutting the ribbon to open Monster. "This is when we opened the store the first time dad put the ribbon around the door and we all put our hands on the scissors to cut the ribbon"Criss stated showing it to JD. Then Costa saw the writing on the back. "There's writing on the back" Costa replied as JD flipped it over.
"TIME FOR LIFE TO REPEAT ITSELF"
Everyone didn't understand what it meant. Then the limo stopped. The door opened and Rachel was standing there. "Hey guys" she remarked. "All right Rachel what's going on?"JD asked. "You'll see but I need you guys and Dimitra to put on these" giving them blindfolds. "Why?"Costa asked. "It's a surprise guys so do it or I'm not letting you guys out of this car" she ordered. Criss put on the blindfold and Rachel helped him out. "Just stand right there"she remarked as Lynn helped Dimitra out. "Costa give me your hand" Rachel said and he did while Dimi helped her father out. Criss felt a hand on his shoulder. "Who's there?"he asked. "Don't worry Christopher it's Tony" he stated as Tony lead Criss. Rachel lead Costa, as Dimi lead her father and Lynn lead Dimitra. "Now what's going on?"Criss asked. "You'll see Christopher just keep coming"Rachel stated. "I feel like I'm being lead to the gas chamber"JD remarked. "How about firing squad?"Costa replied. "All right now on three I want you guys to take off the blindfolds"Rachel instructed them. "All right 1-2-3 take them off". When they took it off everyone yelled surprise.

Criss, his brothers and their mother couldn't believe what they saw. They saw a bunch of people including the mayor of Greenmeadow standing on a platform. Criss turned and saw a really long sheet over the building. "What's going on here?"JD inquired. "You'll see guys just walk onto the platform" Rachel remarked and they did. As they went up the mayor shook their hands one by one. What the heck is going here Criss thought as they sat down. As the mayor gave a small speech Rachel went up to the roof. "With such happiness I turn this over to Anthony DeClawson" and Tony walked up.
"Thank you mayor. I'm going to make this short and sweet because what's under that sheet is going to knock you over and tears will be shed. I've know The Sarantakos before these three were a thought in their parent's minds. I was here when John Sarantakos god rest his soul open this store with his three sons, Joseph David, Costa, and Christopher. When I heard my ex brother in law and nephew put a plan together to destroy this place I was ashamed to be even related to these people but my niece decided to buy the property and bring back Monster to what it was maybe even better. Dimitra, Joseph, Costa, and especially Christopher welcome to the second coming of Monster Music".
Rachel cut the strings one by one. The sheet fell and showed the sign and the store. Dimitra put her hands over mouth as tears fell down all their faces. "What do you think Christopher?"Tony asked putting his hand on his shoulder. "I'm speechless I can't believe she did this for me and my family"Criss replied wiping the tears away. Rachel came down from the roof and went over to them. "I couldn't let what my father and brother wanted to do so with help from Uncle Tony, my other brothers, the community, and some of your music friends I brought back Monster bigger and better. Shall we go in" and they went in. They just couldn't believe it. "This is just awesome it looks even bigger than before"Costa remarked. "It should be my brother sold the property to pay for his legal defense and I bought it. I put in three rehearsal room that kids can practice or be taught to play an instrument in"Rachel stated. Then JD saw some of instruments and gear.
"Where did you get all this stuff?" he inquired. "Believe or not Godsmack, Motley Crue, Korn, Kid Rock donated some instruments and stands. Also I got an autograph guitar from the prince of darkness himself" and showed it to them. "Holy :mad: this is autograph by Ozzy Osbourne!"Criss declared. "And I also have this from Metallica" and showed it to JD. "This is a gold album for their album Veritgo"JD remarked as Criss and Costa looked at it. "Where did you get this?" Costa asked. "I play cards with their manger and the lead singer's wife and himself are fans of yours Criss, so they gave me this for two tickets to Believe which Rachel gladly got for me when she was in Las Vegas" Tony said. Rachel blushed After they looked around Rachel and Tony went outside. "Do you think we should tell Criss who I am?" he asked. "What that you're his god father and you were a mobsters from way back and because of your influences you got dad and Donnie arrested and brought Monster back to its rightful owners" she inquired. "You're right let's just keep that in the family" he replied as Rachel giggled.
Then Criss came over. "So what do you think Criss?" Rachel asked. "I'm speechless but I have to say thank you to you and your uncle I don't know what my family would of done with out you two"Criss said.. "I have an idea Criss how about after this celebration you finally take my niece out on that first date?" Tony suggested. "All right" and Criss gave Rachel a kiss as he went back in.
