After dinner Criss and Costa walked or wheeled the ladies to their rooms. "Thanks for dinner Criss it was lovely" Minnie remarked. "You're welcome I gotta say what Julie told me about her life and what your mom did for her I can see why she cares for you so much that she's nervous about leaving you so far away"Criss stated. "She's always been like that since the accident she was my shoulder so to speak to lean on when I need support" Minnie remarked. "Well I'll see you later maybe I can show you around Las Vegas or something". "That's sound good Criss we'll talk later about it". She got the door and Criss held it so it wouldn't close on her. "Bye Minnie"Criss stated. "Bye Christopher"she replied and shut the door. The next day Criss was working on a few things when his mother came in. "Hey mom what's up?" he asked. "I was wondering how dinner went last night Costa told me you went out with him and Julie".
"Yea it was a double date Julie's sister came down and we had dinner that's it" he replied. "Costa told me she's disabled". "She lost her legs in a car accident and she's in a wheelchair but I gotta say she has this strength that I only saw in dad. Minnie works as an advocate for the disabled making sure they get the same rights as we do. She doesn't let what happen to her bring her down" Criss replied. "Like you did when you almost drowned doing Silverton the first time. You wait a year to fight that fear which you did"his mother remarked. "Yea even thou I got sick that day too I almost thought I was going to have a repeat performance of that"Criss admitted. Then a knock came to the door and Criss saw it was Minnie. Dimitra went over and got the door. "Hey Criss" she said wheeling in. "Hey Minnie mom this is Minnie Julie's sister"Criss said. "Nice to meet you Minnie" Dimitra remarked as she shook her hand. "It's nice to meet you I can see where Criss get his manners from," as Dimitra blushed a little.
"Oh Criss before I forget Costa told Julie you wanted to see the photo that she won with" and took it out. When Criss saw it he almost started to cry. "You all right Christopher?"Dimitra asked. "Yea I just got something in my eye" as he put the picture down. Dimitra picked it up and looked at it. "Oh my god!!"Dimitra stated as she sat down. "She told me when she took that picture JD asked her what she was doing and she just said I found love. The love between a mother and her sick child" she remarked looking at both of them. "I can see why she went with this" as Dimitra gave it back. "She wanted you to have it and Criss she's making another copy for you so you can have one too" she stated. "Thanks Minnie" wiping the tears from his eyes. "I should go I want to look at a few stores bye". Dimitra got the door and Minnie left.
