TONIGHT TRAGEDY STRUCK AS A WOMAN IS STABBED AND KILLED BY HER OWN FATHER. THIRTY-TWO YEAR OLD AVA BORGOT DIED TODAY AT ST MATTHEWS HOSPITAL WITH A STAB WOUND TO THE ABDOMEN. POLICE FOUND THE FATHER ROAMING AROUND FREEMONT STREET BLABBING INCORHENTLY AND COVERED IN HIS DAUGHTER'S BLOOD-.
Criss turned off the television as he sat next to his mom. "If he's going for insanity plea he's there"JD stated. "I tried to see how Costa was but he won't let me in his room"Dimitra replied wiping her face of tears. "I guess Costa just wants to be left alone right now"Criss remarked. "He's probably feeling what you felt when dad died"JD said looking at Criss. "Probably". A knock came to the door and JD got it. At the door was Felix. "Hey Felix what are you doing here?" Criss asked surprised to see him considering the time of night it was. "I just heard about Ava I can't believe her father would do such a thing. He's a preacher from Ohio". "Police are saying that he had a nervous breakdown or something"Criss said. "I heard Costa found her how is he?". "After the police talked to him he said he wanted to be left alone" Dimitra replied. "I wanted to tell you that all of the hotels that Ava did blood drives at are starting a little fund to help her mother pay for her funeral"Felix told them. Criss went over to his coat and took out two hundred dollars from his wallet. "Here you go Felix"Criss replied.
"Here Felix" as Criss's mom gave thirty too. "See me later Felix I don't have my wallet on me"JD replied. "Thanks" and Felix left. The next day Criss went to see his brother but he still wanted to be left alone so Criss honored it. At the production office the crew was just talking about Ava. "She's was a nice woman. She reminded me of my niece"Luke said. "And her can do attitude it was so catchy. When we donated blood that day I told Ava I wanted to help out with the blood drive here in a few months" Banachek remarked. "You know Felix is putting together a little fund to help her mother pay for her funeral" Doug stated. "Yea I gave Felix fifty"Gerard stated. "I gave him a hundred dollar chip I won at the Hymn a few weeks ago" Erich stated. "I just wish there was something else we could do to honor her memory" Brian suggested. Criss walked in and saw everyone's faces. "I see you guys heard about Ava last night" as he sat down at his desk. "Yea are they charging Ava's father with murder"Bancheck asked. "I don't know if he's even fit to stand trail. I heard that he had a breakdown or something"Criss replied sitting down.
"Criss is it true Costa found her and was with her when she died". "Yea Costa did all he could to save Ava but she already lost too much blood"Criss remarked holding back the tears. "I feel bad for Costa I heard he liked her"Luke stated. The phone rang and Banachek got it. "Yea thanks I'll tell him,". "Criss Ava's mom is here she wants to talk to Costa but he's not answering his phone or the door"he remarked. "I'll see what I can do" and Criss left. In his room Costa was staring out the window drinking a beer. He couldn't get Ava and her dying in his arms out of his mind. Costa finished the beer and threw the bottle at the door shattering it. A knock came to the door. "Costa let me in"Criss said. "Leave me alone Christopher"he replied. "Come on Costa let me in". "GO AWAY!!" Costa yelled out and threw a lamp at the door. Criss took a couple of steps back when he heard the lamp break. Criss knew the pain Costa was going through and wanted to help but Costa didn't want it.
Then Criss went into his pocket and took out a skeleton key he had for all the rooms at The Luxor. He put it in the slot and it unlocked the door. Criss walked in and saw Costa on the floor still in the same clothes that he came home in with Ava's dry blood on it. The place was trashed with broken beer bottles and a lamp. "I thought I told you to go away"he replied as Costa got up off the floor. "Costa I want to help you"Criss remarked. "I don't need your help Christopher just leave me the alone"Costa said. "You think I don't know how you feel hell you saw it first hand what I went through when dad died in my arms. I couldn't function with out reliving the pain and heartache I felt when dad died. Costa I know you loved Ava and your heart is aching but you can't let the pain of losing her take control of you. You have to find a way to turn it around". "You had your magic to focus your pain I got nothing"he replied in anger. Criss didn't know what to say so he left the room. When he came out he called Felix. "Felix Costa is not up to talking to anyone I'll come and talk to her" and Criss left.
When Criss came down Mrs. Bogort was standing next to Fliex. "Nice to meet you Christopher my daughter considered you a good friend"she remarked shaking Crissís hand. "Well your daughter became apart of my family too. She help my brother JD, me, and my family. It's a terrible thing that she died" Criss stated. "I wanted to thank your brother Costa for trying to safe my daughter. I just can't believe my husband did this"she remarked wiping her tears away. "Yea my crew and my family feel the same way" Criss stated. "It was nice to meet you Christopher and when he's up to it I would like to talk to Costa"she replied. "I'll let him know"Criss said and Mrs Borgot left. A few days passed and JD and Criss were getting ready for Ava's funeral. "So do you know if Costa's coming?"JD asked. "Don't know"Criss called out from his bed room. "Have you talked to him since you saw him last?".
Criss came out. "I went to his room and opened the door. The place was still the same but Costa wasn't there but he did change I asked the maids to clean his room and tell me if Costa returns"Criss replied fixing his collar. "I talked to mom she hasn't talked to Costa either and she's worried about him like she was with you when dad passed" JD stated. "I don't blame her for worrying hell I'm worried about him too"Criss remarked. JD turned on the television and they had something on Ava's murder.
TODAY IN LAS VEGAS SUPERIOR COURT ELVIS BOGORT PLEADED NO QUILTY FOR THE MURDER OF HIS THIRTY FIVE YEAR OLD DAUGHTER AVA. HIS LAWYER HAS DRAFTED A MOTION FOR INSANITY DEFENCE. "MR BORGOT WASN'T IN THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND WHEN HE ALLEGELY KILLED HIS DAUGHTER. MY CLIENT SUFFERED A MENTAL BREAKDOWN AT THE TIME".
"What a bunch of the guy using the insanity defense so he doesn't have to go to jail"Criss replied. "What you don't think the guy had a breakdown when he killed Ava". "Honestly no I think the guy couldn't take it that his daughter was living her own life and he made Ava paid for it with her life"Criss replied in honesty. "Well come on we're going to be late" and they left. When they got to the funeral they saw Felix and some other owners of hotels around the strip. "There's the owner of the Excalibur next to Felix"JD stated. "Talking to Ava's mom is the owner of the MGM and next to him is the owner of The Mirage" Criss added. Walking over to JD and Criss was Janice and BJ. "Hey guys"Janice remarked. "Hey Janice BJ I can't believe how many owners of hotels are here at Ava's funeral"Criss replied. "The reason Ava worked at The Red Cross because she wanted to help people and she would talk to every owner of each hotel on the strip if we could hold a blood drive or teach a CPR course there. The owner of The Mirage loved Ava like a daughter he would even donate money to The Red Cross every Christmas" BJ stated.
"What about Felix?". "Ava considered him an angel when Ava had her accident here in Las Vegas Felix was the only one who the right blood type. Since then Ava and Felix became good friends and why Felix wanted to help out Ava's mother with the funeral"Janice stated. "And the owner of the MGM". "Ava was his angel Ava and I went to The MGM to put out flyer for the next blood drive when someone screamed. Ava saw a man on the floor out cold. Ava checked him out saying he was breathing and didn't have a pulse so we did CPR on him until the ambulance came. We later found out it was the owner of MGM. He was so grateful that every year we hold CPR course at his hotel so everyone know what to do if that happened again"Janice replied. "Wow maybe we should talk to Felix about doing that?"JD suggested.
"Yea and Costa can teach it"Criss added. As the funeral started Criss looked around at the crowd and the people who knew or cared for Ava. When Criss turned his head he saw over under a tree was Costa. He bumped JD and pointed over to where he was. After the priest said his stuff Costa walked over quietly and put a white rose on her coffin. Then he said Θα σας αγαπήσω πάντα μου αυξήθηκα and left. "What did he just say?"Felix asked Criss. "JD the Greek translator here Felix". "He said I will always love you my rose"JD replied as Criss watched his brother walk away.
After the funeral Criss and JD went after Costa but he left before they caught up. As they drove to The Luxor Criss got a bad feeling in his gut that started to bug him. "What's wrong Criss?"JD asked. "I'm getting that bad feeling in my stomach". "The last time that happen mom had heart surgery" JD replied. "Pull over now!!"Criss yelled and JD did. Criss didn't wait for the car to stop to get out. He ran out and threw up. JD got out as Criss was on his hands and knees. "You all right?"JD asked. Criss looked up and saw Costa smoking. "I think we found Costa"Criss remarked getting up slowly. Costa just sat on the car with a cigarette and paper bag with booze in it. "Costa"a voice called out. Costa saw Criss and JD walking over. "I thought I was alone"he said. "Well if Criss didn't toss his cookies you would of" JD said. "How are you Costa?"Criss asked.
"A little better but I still miss Ava"he replied taking a drink. JD took the bottle and took a drink than spit it out. "God this is terrible this is like drinking lighter fluid"he replied as JD threw the stuff in the trash. "Costa we kind of figured out what you could do to honor Ava"Criss remarked. "What's that?"he asked putting the cigarette out. "Well Ava always gave CPR courses at the MGM why don't you take that over for her"JD suggested. "You can also teach the people at The Luxor too" Criss added. "Yea you can be the dummy Criss" and JD started to laugh as Costa smiled. "That's the Costa we love"JD said as he gave him a hug. When the guys got back to The Luxor Mrs. Borgot was there with Felix. "Christopher nice to meet you again". "Thanks and this is my brother Costa"Criss stated as he walked over. "You must be the man my daughter loved". "Yes I loved your daughter too she will be missed"Costa replied. "Why don't you guys go into my production office and talk"Criss offered and they walked over as Criss went into the bathroom again. "What's wrong with Criss?". "Stomach problems probably"JD replied.
"So Costa my daughter told me you're a volunteer EMT". "Yea Janice told me about The Red Cross chapter here so I volunteer to give CPR classes and when I met Ava she made everyone around here happy including me and my brothers. My mother told me when she met Ava that she saw either my brother Criss or me marrying her"Costa said. "The paramedics told me you were there when Ava passed away". "Yea I tried to keep her alive but I couldn't" as tears started to fall down his face. Ava's mother got up and went over to Costa. "I'm just happy that she wasn't alone when she died. Ava always could bring out the best in people and I'm glad you tried to help her. Costa if it's all right with you I think Ava would like you to have Angel her cat".
"That would be all right I could use the company" Costa stated. All of a sudden they saw EMTs coming in. "Excuse me" and Costa came out. Costa walked over to JD who was chewing his nails. "JD what's going on?" Costa inquired. "It's Criss I came in to see how he is and I saw Criss on the floor with blood on his lips and in the toilet it looks he puked it up". The EMT brought Criss out who was unconscious and with oxygen on him.
As the guys drove to the hospital they were worried about what was going on with Criss. "Maybe that blood he puked up is probably the reason he was anmenic"JD suggested. "Yea why did Criss throw up blood" Costa asked. "Let's hope the doctors know" as they pulled into the hospital. When they got in Costa saw Jeff. "Hey Jeff"he called out. "Costa JD I guess you're here about Criss". "Yea what's wrong with him this time"JD remarked. "I guess the stress of Criss's job finally caught up with him. Criss has an ulcer and the ulcer is probably the reason he became anemic". "We use to tell Criss he was giving us ulcers not the other way around"Costa stated.
"Well with some medication and trying to bring down Criss's stress level he'll be fine". "You'd have a better chance on trying to raise the dead than bringing down Criss's stress level"JD replied as Costa muffled a laugh. "Well we also have a problem because of the ulcer Criss is anemic again so we have to give him another transfusion". "Did you find anyone here that's Criss's blood type?"Costa inquired. "Janice is checking the blood list to see if anyone is AB double negative from that blood drive Ava-". Jeff stopped mid sentence. "It's all right Jeff we all miss Ava"Costa replied. "Jeff Jeff we've got it we've got a pint of AB double negative"Janice remarked running down with a cooler. In the emergency room they hooked Criss up and after a minute Criss started to feel better. "How you feeling Criss?"JD asked as they walked in. "Better I can't believe I gave myself an ulcer"he replied. "Well now you have a reason to slow down"Costa said. "Yea"Criss replied. A few months went by and The Luxor was having their blood drive. Criss and his crew helped out any way they could. Criss even brought down Hammie which the little kids loved. At the canteen Costa was handing out the drinks. "How you doing Costa?".
He turned around and saw BJ. "I'm good that Ava's father is in a mental hospital for what he did". At the trial Ava's father went loony saying that his lawyer and the judge were out to get him, so they put him in a mental hospital for the rest of his life. "How's Criss I heard he got an ulcer". "He's watching his stress level and taking his medication. He's doing good so far" Costa replied. "Well I'm going to donate we'll talk later"he stated and walked off. Over at one of blood donation tables JD was donating while Criss just talked. "Too bad you're still a little anmenic"JD said. "Well with the medications I'm on Iím surprise that I still can donate when I'm not anmenic" Criss joked. "Well I found out something you may like to know"JD stated. "And that is?". "It's seems the rare blood type still lives on in the family. It seems my daughter has AB double negative blood"JD replied as he sat up slowly. "So little D has my blood type wow"Criss said in shock.
"Yup and if you need another transfusion because of an accident or something else they will tap your niece" as JD got up. "Well go over and get a drink at the canteen"Criss replied as Felix came over. "Christopher thanks for letting us use The Believe Theater for this. I can't believe Wanda double booked where we were going to have it"Felix remarked. "Just be thankful it's a black night for Believe"Criss replied. "Hey Criss can you help this lovely lady over to the canteen"Janice called out. "Talk to you later Felix" as Criss walked over. Criss walked the lady over to the canteen. After he did that Carrot top and Penn and Teller walked in. "Hey I see you got my message about the blood drive". "Yea I had to drag Carrot here"Penn remarked. "Hey I don't like blood all right" Carrot stated. "Well just fill this out and one of the nurses will take care of you" as the guys sat down. After the blood drive was over Criss was in his office looking over some stuff as Costa came in.
"Hey what are you looking at?". "*givelife.org it's a website for the American Red Cross. I was just reading some of the way blood and platelets are used. They even had an article in here about Ava. Saying that Ava Borgot was the most caring person in the Las Vegas Chapter of The Red Cross. She even help with an emergency blood drive for me and other people"Criss read. "Maybe when you finally get enough Iron in your blood maybe you can finally donate"Costa suggested. "Yea for Ava"Criss replied as he looked at the picture of Ava. A week later Criss finally got to a double red cell donation.
I hope you guys have learned what I was doing with this story everywhere people need blood for transplants, amenia, accidents, and people with cancer. Check out the website(*) and find a blood drive or a local Red Cross service near where you live and donate. The need is constant. The gratification is instant.
