When Criss came back George was waiting for him. "So". 'Trina's brother was outside he wants to buy back CC for Trina"Criss replied a little shock. "What are you going to do?". Before Criss could answer Trina came back. "Let me talk to Trina first"Criss replied. Trina came in and saw George and Criss just standing there like mannequins. "What is my fly down?"she asked looking. "No Trina sit down for a minute". A little worried she sat down. "What Criss?". "George was telling me he saw your brother working at a garage". "Yea right your eyes were probably playing a trick on you"she remarked. "Trina I just met him outside a few minutes ago he wants to buy back CC for you". Trina didn't believe this. "Trina he said that he hasn't stepped into any casinioes or betting on anything"Criss stated.
"Criss he's just playing with you it's a con" and walked off but George went after me. "Trina wait". "George I know my brother he hasn't changed since he started to gamble". "Trina what if the con we played on him woke Marcus up to change his life for himself" George suggested. "Take me to the garage" and they left. At the garage Marcus was working as George and Trina came in. He didn't even realize they were there as Trina got out of the car surprised to see her brother working. "Marcus". He turned around and saw Trina. "Trina how did you know". "George and Criss told me I can't believe your working instead of gambling"she replied. "I guess seeing your boss buy CC from you so you could pay my debt it made me think of how this addiction has destroyed my life. I decided to get some help so I started to go to gambler anonymous meetings and Freddy who i met there gave me a job here and a place to live, but I knew if I wanted to right my wrong with you I needed to talk to Criss about getting CC back to you"he replied.
Tears started to fall down Trina's face as George just watched. "Marcus I have to tell you something and I hope you understand this but Criss helped you see what gambling was doing to you so set up the plan of 'auctioning' CC" Trina stated. "Seriously" he said. "Yea my boss was in your shoes his mother mortaged her house so Criss could have his show but Criss was going to use it to pay his bookie but he thinks his father who passed away was showing him that if he used that money that way his mother would lose the house and live out on the street. Criss couldn't do it so he got beatede witin an inch of his life. After he recovered he swore to his family that he wouldn't gamble ever again" Trina remarked. Marcus put his hands on Trina's shoulder. "Your boss is a smart man to pull that con on me and after you telling me this I'm happy he did" and gave Trina a hug as tears fell down both their faces.
