As they waited for one more person Criss and the group went outside. "So did everyone do their homework?" Armi asked. "Yea I sat on one of my bikes for thirty seconds before I started to feel a little tightness in my chest"Criss replied. "Armi and I put our feet in the water and went up to about our ankles"Dinga remarked. "What about you Ralph I know that your PTSD started with the war so how did you face a little of your fear?"Criss asked. "Since I got back I kept hearing people screaming and guns firing so I decided to go to a firing range and held a gun like the one I used overseas for a while than my friend took me home". "Not bad". The door bell rang and Criss got it. At the door was Chad and Trace. "I see you found the place". "Not a bad house Christopher need a roommate?" as Criss snickered. "Believe me Trace you're not the first person to ask that come on everyone's here". Everyone came in and sat down in a circle. "Now today we're going to talk about support and Criss tell me about your support system".
"Well my mother who some of you met has been by my side since this happened to me. They were times where my brothers thought it was too much and they told her to go home but my mother wouldn't she'd never forgive herself if I died and she wasn't there for me"Criss remarked wiping a tear away. "My mom's the same way a couple of days before my car accident she kept telling me she was going on a cruise and she can't wait. When I finally came out of my coma the first thing I saw was my mom with tears falling down her face. She told me that when she heard about the accident she forgot about the cruise and got on a plane to be there for me"Chad stated wiping the tears away. When Dimitra came back Criss was cleaning up. "I guess the meeting went good".
"Got four offers for roommates if I need them"Criss joked. Dimitra chuckled as she hung up her coat. "Mom I was thinking have I ever told you what a rock you've been toward me helping me". "Christopher you have just by the way you are right now than you were when I saw you in that hospital room"she remarked. Criss walked over to his mom and gave her a hug. "Thanks mom". "Σας καλωσορίζουμε φτάσει λίγο Ανγκέλ μου" (You're welcome my little angel) Dimitra replied.
