In Las Vegas Criss was working on an illusion while JD watched biting his nails like a type writer. "JD if you eat your nail any farther down you're going to be eatting your fingers"Criss said. "I can't help it with all the stunts you do considering what you've been through in your life"he replied. "I swear JD you're starting to sound like mom"Criss stated. Then Criss's watch started to beep. "Time out". Criss went over to his jacket and took out a pill box. "Hey Criss what's with all the vitamins?"Luke asked. "There's not vitamins Luke"Criss said taking a drink of water. "They're antirejection pill Criss is been on them since he was twenty-four"JD added. "Wait minute you had a transplant which organ?". "Heart"Criss remarked putting the pill box away.

You had a heart transplant when you were twenty-four". "Yea if I didn't get one I wouldn't be standing here"Criss stated. "But why did you need one Criss?"Samanatha his assistant inquired. "Because I was diagonsed with a heart defect. By the time they found it my heart was too badly damage and they told my parents that if I didn't get a heart transplant I'd be dead with in six months"Criss replied. "So the doctor thought untill you were working with dad and had a heart attack. I remember dad yelling for me to call 911 as he did CPR on you"JD stated. "After that I spent the rest of the time in the cardic care wing of Saint Mary Hospital in Peekskill New York"Criss replied. "Do you know who gave you that heart?" Banachek asked. "From what mom told me a lady donated her husband's organ after he was killed in a car accident"Criss said.
"Wow I can't believe you never told us about this?". "I don't like talking about it now let's get this illusion together"Criss replied and everyone went back to work. In Vermont a twenty-one year old was working on project as her mother walked in. "Brooke can you help me with dinner?"she said. "Let me just finish this last sentence". On the table were bunches of papers with names, addresses and a lot of other stuff. "Are you almost done with this project for school". To celebrate an organ doner drive at her college Brooke decided to write a paper on how her father's donation of his organ has helped the people who were picked to receive his organs. "I found everyone expect the man who got dad's heart"she replied.
"Why?'. "The hospital that did the transplant closed down and all their records were destroyed or turned into recycled paper. The only thing I found out he use to live in Greenmeadows New York". "So he moved maybe he still has family there maybe a mother and father who could probably help find him"she stated. "One problem I have no last name just a first name Christopher. I'm so close and this is what ruins this project"as tears fell down her face. "Oh baby don't cry you'll do it you have your father's will"her mother said as she gave her a hug.

Back in Vegas Criss was getting ready to go over his demostration when a strange smell hit the room. "Oh my god who farted"Costa asked. "not me"everyone yelled. " who had Mexican for lunch"Criss replied trying not to throw up. "Let's go outside and air out the place?"JD suggested. Everyone went out side but as soon as they got outside a few people started to throw up including Criss. "You all right Criss?"JD asked as he walked over to Criss. When Criss look at his brother he started to see doubles of his brother and his voice was echoing. "Someone call 911 Gerard's having a seizure"someone yelled. When JD turned back to Criss Criss started to seize as well. "Costa tell them we got two people having seizures!!"JD stated.
When Criss opened his eyes he was in a white room on the floor. "What the-"Criss said as he got up. "I was wondering when you were going to wake up"a voice stated. Criss turned around and saw a guy sitting in a chair. "Who are you?". "let's just say I'm the reason you're still alive"the man replied walking over to him. "Where am I the last thing I remember is feeling weird and my head was pounding"Criss said. "Don't worry I just wanted to tell you my name because I('ve heard from other angels that you want to know about me" the man remarked. "Wait a minute your heart is the one I got"Criss stated as it hit him. "You've got it oh by the way my name is Philip Kadish so see yea". A bright light hit and Criss closed his eyes but when he woke he was in a hospital bed. "What the "Criss stated.
"Criss relax all right". He turned and saw Costa. "What happened?"Criss inquired a little confused. "It seems the warehouse next door was using toxic chemicals and some of it leaked into our side. It was a good thing we went outside some of us could ending up dead". "Is everyone all right?"he asked. "It seems you and Gerard got a big dose of the toxic chemical because both of you has seizures"Costa stated. "It was so weird"Criss replied. "What do you mean?". "The vision I had I met the guy who's heart I have he told me that his name is Philip Kadish"Criss replied. "Why don't you relax Criss sometimes seizures can cause hallucation because of the lack of oxgyen to the brain"Costa said. Criss laid back down as Costa left the room.
When Criss was released he went home to find his mother sitting there waiting. "Mom what are you doing here?" giving her a hug. "Costa told me what happened so I hopped on a plane to make sure you're all right"she replied. "I'm fine no organ or brain damage mom". "I still want a second opinion on the brain damage"JD said as Criss rolled his eyes. "When Costa told me you had a seizure I thought that the chemicals would of damaged your heart so bad that you were going to need another transplant"she said. "Speaking of that I need to ask you something about that"he said as they all sat outside. "What do you want to know Christopher?". "I want to know about the person who donated his organs so I could live"Criss stated. "Your father and I never knew much about this person. Your father wanted to thank them but they wouldn't tell us much expect that his name was Philip Kadish" his mother remarked.
"Why do you want to know Criss?"Costa asked curious. "I've been thinking about where I've been since I had the transplant I just wanted to thank them for deciding to donate Philip's organ so other people could live including me"Criss replied. Costa got up and went over to the computer. "I knew that last name sounded fimilar" as everyone walked over."What's up Costa?". Costa brought up an article from Vermont. "I was reading this last night".
"University of Vermont holding a drive for donating organs. The drive is thought up by twenty-one year Brooke Kadish, a sophmore at the college. I came up with this drive as a way to honor my father who decided to donate his organs to other people so they could live a better live. Philip Kadish died in a motor vechile accident in 1991. To drive home the importance of organ donatation Brooke has found almost all the people who through her father's donation has lived longer than they thought they would. I have to find one more person but it's a little difficult because the hospital where he had the transplant has since closed down Brooke explained.
"Do you think Criss could be that person she's looking for?"JD said. Criss just stared at the picture of Philip Kadish and rubbed the scar of the heart transplant. Criss started upstairs. "Where are you going Christopher?" Dimitra asked. "Vermont" he replied and went to pack.
In Vermont Brooke was looking at some of the information she had. "So have you found anything about the guy who got your father's heart?"her teacher Mrs. Hillman inquired sitting across from her. "Only that he had a heart aliment that would of been fatal if he didn't get the transplant. This is driving me nuts why is it so hard to find this guy when it was so easy to find the others"she muttered. "What this person's name?'. "Christopher I don't know his last name. He lived in Greenmeadows New York". A thought hit Mrs. Hillman which Brooke could tell. "Something on your mind Mrs. Hillman?"she asked. "My mother lives in New York she was telling me about a guy who grew up there. He lives in Las Vegas and he's a world famous magician. Has his own show on the Vegas strip"she wondered.
"But there's no way of knowing if this is the guy I'm looking for. He could be in jail, or dead for all I know"Brooke stated "Stranger things has happened the person who got your father's liver became a presidental candidate"she said. "I'm going to call a retired nurse I met maybe she worked at the hospital that Chris had his transplant at" and Brooke walked off. While Criss and his family flew to Vermont Criss was looking out the window thinking about what he had been through coming so close to death, wondering if he'd see his next brithday while waiting for that calling saying that they found a heart for Chris."Christopher you allright?"his mother asked . "Yea just thinking". "About what?" she wondered.
"What would of happened if I didn't get this transplant. When I was in that cardic care unit just sitting there wondering if I was going to diie". "You came close Christopher your heart had been damaged due to an illness you had as a child. By the time the doctors realized what happened it was too late to reverse the damage it caused". "I remember feeling tired just walking down the stairs, having trouble catching my breath"Criss remembered. "Sometime when you slept your father would check in on your every hour just to make sure you were alive". "I still remember seeing that fear in dad's eyes when he was helping me with something outside and I just got this pain in my chest it felt like someone had hit me in my chest than everything went dark. Even thou I was clinicly dead I could feel someone pushing on my chest telling me to wake up to not to leave"Criss said.
"Yea that was the scariest moment for me seeing you in that ER while they did CPR on you and using the paddles on you trying to get your heart to start again. They would get it back than a few minute later you would go into V-Fib. I honestly thought you were going to die that day". "Excuse me mom I need to use the bathroom before we land". Criss got up and went to the bathroom. Inside he locked the door and sat on the toilet as tears fell down his face. He needed to be by himself for a few minutes just to gether himself. After that he threw cold water on his face and came back out.
After they landed they went to the hotel to checkin. As they checked in Criss's watch started to beep. "Which way to the men's room?" Criss asked. "Down the hall first door on your left" she replied and Criss left. In the bathroom Criss took his medicine than splash some water in his face. Criss hoped that he wasn't doing this just for his health or to ease his mind. "Excuse me," a voice called out. Criss turned around and saw a woman standing there. "I think you went into the wrong bathroom this is the ladies' room". "The lady at the desk-". The woman started to chuckle a little. "I'm sorry sometime Renee gets confused about stuff. I'm Brooke"she replied holding out her hand. "Christopher nice to meet you" shaking her hand.
"Why don't we go outside before someone comes in and gets the wrong idea". Criss grabbed his pill box and put it back into his coat pocket. "On a strict reginament of medication or vitamins" she inquired. "Your could say that"Criss replied as they left the bathroom. As they came out JD and Costa were about to walk in. "Well now I see what took you so long"JD said. "Brooke meet my pain in the butt brothers JD and Costa" as she shook their hands. "I have to get bacvk to work" and Brooke left. "So do you wantto tell us what was-". "You guys are sick in the head now come on" and they left.
