This story is a personal one because I suffer from depression and I've come close to 'jumping the fence'
The city of Las Vegas is buzzing with people getting ready for the day but for world famous illusionist Criss Angel he was getting ready for some company at his house Serenity. The door bell rang and Criss went to get it. He answered it and at the door is a lovely lady in a pair of black pants, glasses, white shirt, and heels. “Nice to see you Christopher is this your new house” she asked. “Yea Serenity come in Mrs. Sonnytag” Criss replied. She walked in with her briefcase. “I got to say Criss you’re looking much better than how you look a year ago” she replied. “Thanks why don’t we sit outside I have some tea waiting for us” Criss remarked. Back at The Luxor Costa and JD were working as Dave walked in. “Where’s Criss?” he asked. “What do you mean he told me he had a meeting with you” Costa replied surprised.
“That doesn’t sound like Criss consider half his job is to pull misdirection” Dave stated itching his head. “Let me give him a call” JD suggested. At Serenity Criss and Mrs. Sonnytag were talking outside as Criss ignored the ringing phone. “So how’s everything going?”she asked. “Pretty good I’m dating a nice woman named Sandra. Mindfreak is going on its sixth season and my show Believe has been selling out like crazy” Criss replied. “That’s wonderful it seems since you moved out of The Luxor your mood has changed” she stated as Criss smiled. “Yea from a guy who was hiding fifteen pounds of fat, eating fried and high calorie foods, spending any time I had to myself in bed in the dark to the guy who sits in front of you making the most out of life” Criss remarked smiling. “Well I’m glad you’re doing better but I have to ask you one thing why hide what you went through from your brothers?” she inquired.
“Embarrassment probably they know me as a guy who is the life of the party, who never let anything get to him, to the way I felt when my dad died” Criss replied twiddling his fingers. She put her hand on his. “Christopher it’s nothing to be embarrassed about being diagnosed with this” she assured him. “I know” as he let a sigh come out.
