I was sitting in the production office as I waited for Criss. "You want a drink Rachel?" George asked. A shot of Tequilla I thought. "Some water please" as he gave me the bottle of water. "I just have to ask before Criss comes in why did you do this?" George inquired sitting down. "Because I know how much Criss loves Hammie and I could tell just looking at Hammie he's the same way with Criss" I replied. I could hear the crowd cheering so I knew Criss had finish his demostration. I took a few deep breath and told myself to stay cool as Criss came in with JD. I got up and shook Criss's hand and we sat down. "I really appreciate you doing this my suite hasn't been the same since Hammie was taken" Criss stated. "It's my pleasure Criss Hammie was the same way when I first met him" I replied. "I have to ask how did you know this cat is Hammie?"JD inquired. I got up, took an envelope out of my pocket and took out the licence. "This is how I found out" and gave Criss the licence.
"I had this made for Hammie the day I came here to the Luxor. Hammie likes to escape my room sometimes and explore the Luxor. Felix found him in his office twice" Criss replied. I took my sweatshirt off the carrier and put it on the floor. "You ready Hammie?" I asked and he moewed loud enough for the people outside to hear. I opened the door to the carrier and Hammie came out and ran over to Criss. Criss picked up and hugged him while tears fell down Criss's face. "I don't know what to say but thank you"Criss stated. "There's one thing you can do Criss. Take the reward money and donate it or put towards your foundation" I asked. "All right but you have to do something for me?". "What's that Angel?" I inquired. "Be my guest for Believe tonight and stay the night everything on me" he offered. "All right Angel"I remarked. "I'll take her to a room come on Rachel"JD said. "George I left my bag in the car can you get it for me?". "Sure" and I left with JD.
After I got to the room and George got my bag I called Sam. "So how did it go?". "Pretty cool I got a standing ovation from Criss and his fans. It felt pretty cool to bring Hammie home" I remarked as I put on a robe. "Did you take the money?". "Noway I didn't do it for the reward I told Criss to donate it or put it towards his foundation but he offered for me to be his guest for Believe and stay the night"I stated. "I'm so jealous Rachel!!". "Well I'll call you later Sam I need a shower" and hung up. After I took a shower and changed for Believe a knock came to the door. I went to the door and at the door was Criss's mom. "Hello I'm sorry to brother you but I had to meet you"she stated. "No problem Dimitra come in" and she walked in. "I have to say when Christopher told me that Hammie was taken I prayed that someone kind would find Hammie and my prayes were answered" she remarked. I smiled with delight. "Thank you". "I can't believe through Criss's fans you got Hammie here safe and sound"she remarked. "Well you can thank your son for that because he put on his site that his fans should help me bring Hammie back and I'm glad they did"I stated.
"Well I'm also here to bring you down to the show so shall we?" she said. "Let me throw a brush through my hair first"I replied. I went to the bathroom. Then Dimitra saw the picture of my cat on my phone. "What a beautiful cat" she said as I came out. "That's my cat Spike I love him as much as Criss loves Hammie" I stated. "Really that's nice. Shall we"and we left. I came in to the theater with Dimitra and sat up front with Holly. "You must the one who brought Hammie home" shaking my hand. "Yea" I remarked. We sat down and I enjoyed the show. Before the show ended Criss came out. "As everyone knows my beloved cat was taken from me,". I started to blush when I figured out what Criss was going to do. "And today he was brought back to me so I would like everyone to meet the person who brought Hammie back to the Luxor and me". Criss walked down and brought me up to the stage. I took a bow as everyone in the theater including the people in the show started to clap.
After that we went up to Criss's suite. Criss opened the door and saw Hammie asleep on his bed. "It's like he never left" Criss said as we all giggled. In the suite everyone asked me about the journey I took and I told them about how a cousin's fan did a two face on me, or how Criss's 'twin' helped me get out of the hotel. After I told my story Criss's pinball machine caught my eye. "Hey Criss how about a game one on one" I suggested going over to it. "All right but if I win you have to take the reward money" Criss stated. "And if I win you have to come to Boston and visit me when you have the time. Deal"I said putting out my hand. "Deal" Criss replied shaking my hand. "Christopher if you lose this I'm going to make you keep up your part of the deal" his mother expressed. "Me too" Holly added. "Shall we"I said. "You first" Criss replied.
I beat Criss and the face he had on said I JUST GOT HUSTLED. "I should of told you I love to play pinball" I stated as Holly and his mother were laughing. The next day I was getting ready to leave when Criss asked me to meet him in his suite. I got into the elevator and sitting in it was Hammie. I bent down and picked him up. "Criss wasn't kidding when he said that you like to escape from his suite. Come on you little escape artist" and I went into the elevator. In his suite Criss was looking for Hammie. "Not again I gotta look into a GPS unit for his collar" he muttered. A knock came to his room and Criss opened the door. I was standing there with Hammie in my arms. "You weren't kidding when you said Hammie likes to escape" I remarked as Criss tried not to laugh. I brought Hammie in and Criss shut the door as Hammie jumped out of my arms. "Well I guess this is good-bye"I said. "There's two things I want to do before you leave"he stated. "What's that Criss?"I asked sitting on the edge of his couch.
"Well first I want to give you this" and gave me an envelope. I opened it and it was a check from Criss's production studio for two thousand dollars. "Criss we agreed that you were surpose to donate this or put it towards your foundation" I remarked. "I am donating it towards the cat hospital you volunteer at"Criss replied. I got up and gave Criss a hug and a kiss on the check. "Sam isn't going to believe this" as I put the check in my bag. "Also I wanted to take a picture of you, me, and Hammie to put on my website and for you to remember this journey you took to bring Hammie back to me" Criss stated. "Sure Criss I'd be honored"I replied smiling. Costa came up and Criss and I sat on the couch as Hammie was on layed out on my lap. Three months went by and the picture that was taken hangs in the hospital. I still work at the hospital with Sam and few more volunteers. We even named the number 13 cage the Hammie suite. I got a lot of publicity for what I did for Criss even got interviewed by news stations in and around Massachusetts.
We used the money that Criss gave us to good use. We even got a lot of donation so we could even revonvate the hospital. "So Rachel do you think you'd ever do that again if someone catnaps another famous person's cat" Sam inquired. "I don't know" I remarked as I went to the back. Then Sam looked up as a Hummer pulled up. "Rachel you should come out here a hummer just pulled up"he called out. "So what I've seen Hummers before"I replied. "What about The Mindfreak Hummer?"he called out. IF I WIN YOU HAVE TO COME TO BOSTON TO VISIT ME echoed in my head. I came out and saw Criss getting out with a guy with a video camera. "I guess Holly and Dimitra made Criss keep his end of the deal" I said out loud. "What are you talking about?" Sam remarked as I went outside. "Now I'm here in Boston keeping my word to Hammie's Guardin Angel that I would visit her and there she is" as I gave Criss a kiss. "I see you gave up shaving for a while"I remarked.
"So I see my money was put to good use"he stated. "Exactually Criss we got donations from a lot of your friends Sully from Godsmack sent us a truck load of food for the animals, Penn and Tellar gave us some money and Lance Burton even came down here and presented the check to us. We used that to renovate the place to bring in more animals"I told him. "Before I forget I brought a friend with me"Criss stated but he brought out an empty carrier. "This is embrassing Hammie was in here a second ago"he remarked blushing a little. "I think I know where he went come on Angel"I replied and we went in. I brought Criss to the back and he saw that cage thirteen that was named Hammie's suite was covered. I pulled off the cover and there in the cage was Hammie. Criss laughed as I opened the cage. "Hey Hammie nice to see you again" as I took Hammie out. "I guess some of my magic rubbed off on you" Criss said as we all laughed.
