When she answered it Minnie was crying. "Minnie what's wrong?" she asked a little scared. "I was taking a cab back to the hotel when the cabbie was car jacked the guy had a gun"Minnie replied. "Are you all right?" she asked. "I'm fine but he threw me out and took the cab with my wheelchair in the trunk. I don't know what to do". "Minnie where are you?"Julie asked as Costa saw Julie's hand was trembling. "In Sunset park Julie how am I going to get back to the hotel"she replied. "Let me see if Costa can get a hold of Criss or JD to help you" Julie said. "All right" and she hung up. "What happened?" Costa asked. "The cab Minnie was in got car jacked and her wheelchair was in the trunk now she stuck in Sunset park and she's scared Costa. Do you think you can hold of Criss or JD to get her before something happens to her". "Yea I'll give Criss a call" and took out his phone Back at The Luxor Criss was working on some paper work but his mind couldn't stop thinking about Minnie which drove him a little nuts at times. Then his phone rang and saw it was Costa. "Yea bro what's up?"he asked.
"Criss I need a favor Minnie is stuck at Sunset park the cab she was in got car jacked with her wheelchair still in the trunk" Costa stated. "Is she all right?" Criss asked. "Minnie's fine but she's scared can you get her before she gets mugged or worse?". "Yea" and Criss hung up. He grabbed the keys to his Viper and left. At Sunset park Minnie was under a tree while her heart pounded. Her phone went off and saw it was Julie. "Minnie Costa got a hold of Criss he's coming to get you so don't worry". "Thanks sis I'll keep my eye open for him" she replied. "Call me in fifteen minutes if he doesn't show up all right". "All right" Julie stated and hung up. "Now I see why you're nervous about living away from Minnie"Costa remarked. At Sunset park Criss parked his Viper and went looking for Minnie hoping she was all right. "Minnie" he called out. "Over here Criss" and Criss went over to her. "Thank god I was so scared" as she hugged Criss with tears coming down her face. "It's all right Minnie it's all right". Criss picked her up and brought her to the car. Criss put her in and buckled her in as she calmed down.
Criss got in and closed the door. "Are you sure you're all right you don't need to go to the hospital?"Criss asked just to make sure. "Yea just frazzled I've never gone through that before" she replied wiping the tears away. "Just relax we'll be back at The Luxor soon" and they left. As Criss drove Minnie was shaking a little so at red light Criss put his jacket over her. "Thanks Criss I just can't believe that happened having a gun pointing at you scared that you may lose your life". Know that feeling too well Criss thought as the first attempt of Silverton played back in his head. When they got back to the hotel Criss parked his car and picked up Minnie. "You know I could get use to this Criss"she said as Criss snickered. As they came in Felix was waiting there. "Is there something you like to tell me Criss?"he asked as Minnie tried not to laugh. "You're worse than my brothers Felix besides it isn't what you think her cab got carjacked and her wheelchair was in the taxi"Criss replied. "Julie did tell me about her sister so I got this just incase" and brought out a wheelchair.
"Thanks Felix" as she helped Minnie into it. "Your welcome beside I don't think your back would like caring her around"Felix joked and left. "I wonder how he would feel if I move to another hotel" Criss thought out loud. "Julie thinks of everything" Minnie mumbled. "Minnie can we talk for a second about Julie?"Criss asked. "Sure" and Criss wheeled her into the production office. "What's up Criss?". "Well it's about Costa and Julie Costa has fallen for Julie since she came here for the photography competition but she's nervous about being so far away from you and I think after what happened today she may go back to Richmond and make her relationship to Costa long distance which I know for a fact doesn't work very well"Criss remarked. "Criss I know that Julie cares for me but you have to understand what she's been through emotionally"Minnie stated.
"She told me having a mother blame you for her living while her husband died or having a foster father who's on the sex offender registry I can understand why she's keeps her heart closed off"Criss remarked. "I know you do too Criss but how can I help?" she asked. "You have to let Julie know how much my brother loves her and wants her to stay here in Vegas". "Criss there's a rule between Julie and I we don't interfer in our love lives so I can't help you" Minnie remarked and she left. Criss sighed knowing that Minnie was right about him he does keep his heart closed off.
