When we got to the church where the meeting was being held Marcus was outside. "Hey bro"Trina remarked giving him a hug. "Thanks for coming"he said. "So what's going on why did you want us here?"Sandra asked. "You guys have been great to me since I decided to get help for my addiction even you Criss. That wake up call you did really helped me"Marcus stated. "It's no problem Marcus"Criss remarked. "Why don't we go in before they start the meeting with out us"Marcus suggested. "I'll be right down"Criss said and they went down as Sandra stayed behind. "Something bugging you Christopher?"she asked.
"Just thinking of the past and realizing what could of happened if I took that money my mom gave me to fund my show to pay off my bookies"Criss replied. "Criss that's the past you said that vision you think your father sent you helped you see what was going on"she replied. "I guess so" and they went downstairs. When they got down there Criss was shocked to see his mother and his brothers in the basement. "What's going on?"he said surprised. "Well Criss I was talking with Marcus a few weeks ago and he informed me that your one year anniversary was coming up"Trina said. "We knew that you wouldn't invite your family so I played a little misdirection as Trina puts it and planned this for you"Marcus replied. Criss wiped a tear from his face. Criss went up to the podium as they gave him his chip.
"When I first got this addiction I thought I could control but it took a premenation of my mom sitting on the sidewalk with a foreclourse sign on our house to show me that the addiction had control over me. I took my punishment that day and ended up being in a hospital bed in pain. I never thought in my wildest dream that the gambling would take control again but it took a good friend and my wife to realize I was heading down that same road again so thank you"Criss replied. Criss walked over to his mom and gave her a hug. "That was a wonderful speech Christopher"she remarked. "Yea it was Criss"JD added. "Why don't we all go back to serenity before Dimi reconsiders having kids when she's older"Trina suggested and they left. The next day George was working with Criss when the phone rang.
