As the day went on Criss kept thinking of the invite and wondered if he should take it. "Hey Christopher" a voice called out. He looked up and saw his brothers walking over. "What's up JD". "Well we're going out for some drinks you want to go?" he asked. "Nah I think I'll catch up on my sleep" Criss replied. "All right" and left. Upstairs Criss was heading towards his room when he heard crying. He went over to the door and knocked on it. "Jessie open up" he called out. She opened the door with tears marks on her face. "You had that dream again didn't you". She nodded as Criss came in. "Was the same or was it different this time". Jessie sat down. "The same I was in the dome in New Orleans as the storm got worse and worse. Everyone panicking than this huge wave came in and I watched it take away my mom and grandmother" she replied wiping the tears away. Criss gave her hug.
He hated seeing Jessie hurt even thou Hurricane Katrina was seven years ago in August to the survivors it felt like yesterday. "Do you want me to bunk here tonight?" Criss asked. "No I'm fine you just go to your suite and if I need you I'll call you" she assured him. "All right". He gave Jessie one more hug and left. The next day Criss was in a meeting. "All right now I have an interview at noon than we'll start filming some stuff for Mindfreak". They all left as JD stayed behind. "I talked to Jessie before she left for school she told me about the invite to that competition" he stated. Criss took the invite out of the drawer and showed it to JD. "Do you think I can win or maybe come in second” Criss joked as JD snickered. "Criss everyone who knows you or has seen your work knows how great you are with magic. I think you could possible win" JD replied. "Did I ever tell you that I got invited to this once but it was a few days before dad passed away" Criss admitted twiddling his fingers. "Maybe this is dad's way of saying take it since you gave it up once" JD replied looking at him. "Well if I do I can't leave Jessie here by herself".
"Criss you're her guardian you can bring her or let me or Costa watch her". "Well let me find out when this competition starts and if it's during school vacation I'll bring her along and if not Dimi has a bunk mate give or take". "Great I'll be outnumbered three to one" JD replied. JD gave back the invitation as Criss laughed.
