“Ready or not here I come. Now where could Marcus be hiding”. Criss could hear giggling. “Let’s see he’s not under the couch is he in the closet”. Criss opened the door but he wasn’t there. “All right let’s see could he be hiding under the curtain”. Criss threw the curtain back and found him. “Gotcha”. Marcus started to laugh as Criss tickled him. “All right you two play times over” a voice called out. Both of them got up. “Go get your stuff Marcus” and he ran upstairs. “Thanks for watching him Criss”. “No problem Kelly for some reason it’s fun to play with him makes me feel like a kid again,” Criss remarked as they went to get a drink. “So have you found a bigger place yet”. “Maybe Criss I don’t know what I’d do with out you. You’ve been a great boss and a great friends towards me and Marcus” she stated. Criss smiled “My niece wanted me to tell you if you need a baby sister she’ll be available”Criss said. “Criss you’re living up to the name Angel” as Marcus came down. “Come on bud thanks again for the help”.
“No problem bye Marcus”Criss stated. “Bye dad”he said waving good-bye. That night Criss went out with JD and Costa. “So what did you do today on your day off?” Costa inquired. “Helped Kelly out her babysister flaked on her so I watched her son while she went to look at apartments”Criss replied. “Criss what is it with you and Kelly. You’ve been like her guardian angel since she started working with us when we first started Mindfreak”Costa asked. “I’m just being a good friend to her”Criss remarked. “Criss you were there when her son was born and you act like he’s your son even thou he isn’t”JD stated. “JD the guy was a lieing cheating bastard he got Kelly pregnant than has the balls to tell her that he’s married and he wants nothing to do with the kid. Kelly had nobody to lean on so I let her lean on me”Criss replied. “No wonder Holly thought you were cheating on her with Kelly”JD said. “Please Holly got jealous everytime I talk to any woman including Lynn”Criss stated. “I’ll give you that Criss” Costa remarked. The next day at work Kelly and Criss were working in Believe.
“I heard your brothers were razzing on you about our friendship last night” she stated. “Honestly Kelly I think of you as a sister and I don’t give a rat’s behind what they think of our friendship together”Criss said. “Thanks Criss and I'm happy that Marcus didn't call yoy daddy when your brothers were around“. "Kelly it’s all right just make sure he doesn’t say it around my mom or we’re going to have a lot to explain” . "No kidding" she replied.

That night after Criss did his show he went past the production office and saw Kelly on the phone. After she hung up Criss noticed that she was crying. In the office Kelly was wiping away her tears as Criss came in. "Hey what are you still doing here I thought you'd be home with Marcus" he stated. "I had to finish up some stuff" she remarked. "Than why the tears?"Criss asked. "I found this great apartment but I had to put down a deposit so I did now I just found out my bank account has been wiped out. I can't believe I got scammed". "He took all your money". "Even my rent money now I'm going to be kicked out of my apartment and I'll be living at a homeless shelter". Criss got up and gave her hug as she cried. "It's going to be all right Kelly" he stated. "I just can't believe this now this give my uncle a reason to bring me back to London".
"What you have an uncle?". "Yea my mother's brother after my mom died my uncle wanted me to live with his family but I didn't want to so I had to find a job which I did and a place to live but since this scam I may lose my home" wiping the tears away. "How about this I lend you the money to pay your rent this month?"he suggested. "I can't do that to you Criss. Your brothers would have a field day with that". "Consider it a loan all right beside I can't let my Marcus live in a homeless shelter"Criss replied. "All right Mindfreak when I finally get my money back I'll pay you back I swear" as Criss wrote her out a check. "Take your time Kelly". She gave Criss a kiss and left as she put the check in her purse. A week had passed and Criss was coming in when a jeep pulled in back of him. A man got out and looked around the place. Criss parked his car in his spot as the man walked over. "Excuse me are you Christopher Sarntakas?" with a bit of a british accent. "Sarantakos but called me Criss. How can I help you". "I was wondering where Kelly is?". "She should be inside with my brothers working excuse me I'm running late" and Criss went inside.

Inside Kelly was going over some stuff with JD when Criss came in. "Hey Criss" she stated. "Kelly there's a guy outside asking about you". "Describe him"she asked. "Tall black hair with a bit of english accent with glasses"Criss replied. "Excuse me" and Kelly went outside. When she got outside she saw the guy. "Uncle Robert what are you doing here?" surprised to see him. "An uncle can't visit his niece" he stated. "Well it's just a shock to see you if I knew you were coming-". "Why do you work with Chris and his family when you should be taking care of Marcus?". "Because Marcus is in preschool and I love working with Criss and his family" Kelly replied. "Well what does Chris do here?". "He's a magician here and has a show called Believe here" she replied. "A magician god your mother must rolling in her grave knowing that her daughter married a magican".
"You know what uncle we're busy so how about we do the third degree later". "All right how about dinner than I get to know your husband more" he replied. When Kelly walked back in Criss looked at her. "Kelly can I talk to you privately for a minute?". They walked into Believe. "What's wrong you look worried?"Criss inquired as they sat down. "I did something terrible and you're going to hate me for it. My uncle called me a week ago he found out about the check you wrote me. I lied to him saying that you were my husband and Marcus was your son now he's come to check up on me". Criss's jaw fell to the floor. Tears started to fall down her face. "If you want to fire me Criss I'd understand"she replied. "Listen how long do you think your uncle will be here?". "A couple of days why?". "I'll play a long but we can't tell the crew or my brother deal". "Deal" she replied as they shook hands

"Tonight he wants to have dinner and he will give you the third degree on how we met and stuff". "All right after we finish in the office we'll go over what to say tonight"Criss stated. "I owe you big time Christopher". When they came back Kelly went to pick up Marcus as Criss went back to work. "All right Criss what was that conference in Believe about with you and Kelly?"JD asked. "When did you get so involved in my personal life you writing a book or something?"Criss inquired. "Very funny Criss what is going on with you and Kelly are you cheating on Sandra with her?". "God your worse than the tabloids JD I'm not cheating she needed to speak with me in private with out you guys knowing about it and blabbing it to every person in the crew"Criss stated. "All right now about tonight"Costa stated. "Sorry can't make it I made plans with someone else"Criss remarked.
"With who?". "None of your besswax" and went back to work. That night Criss and Kelly waited for her uncle. "Do you remember everything we've gone over?" she inquired. "Yup" as Criss took a drink. Then her uncle walked in and they brought him over. "Uncle Robert this is Christopher my husband". "Good to meet you" as they shook hands. "It's nice to meet you too Christopher. You threw me a loop kelly when you told me you and this magician were married" he said looking Criss over. "I love Criss" as I held Criss's hand. "So tell me Christopher how did you meet my niece?" as he looked at him. "I met Kelly a few years ago a friend of mine introduced us. At first I hired Kelly for her brains for numbers. Some of the guys dubbed her the human calculator"Criss stated. "My niece had a way with numbers I thought she'd be an Accountant" he replied. After we finished talking we sat down to eat. "So how long have you guys been married?". "A year an a half"Kelly stated.
"So you had Marcus before you guys got married?". My uncle looked ready to burn a hole into Criss. "Well we wanted kids after we got married but sometime these things happen"Criss stated. "believe me it was shock when you go in for a physical and the doctor sayes everything is fine expect that you're pregnant. When I told Criss I thought i was going to need smelling salt with the look he had on his face"Kelly stated. "But when the shock wore off I was happy because I wanted kids but I couldn't find the right woman or the time to date them" Criss replied. "After I had Marcus we were going to get married but three days before the wedding Criss's mom had to have emergency heart surgery"I added. "Do you guys live her in the hotel?" he asked. "When Marcus was a baby yes but I didn't want to raise Marcus in a hotel so I had a house built that I named Serenity". "It's beautiful uncle you would love it sometimes I don't want to leave because it's just so peaceful". Then dinner came out and my father looked at the small portion of Criss's meal. "That's not a lot to full you up"he said. "It's because I have a disease called Crohn's Disease inflammation of the intestinal tract so one of the ways to control it is small portions". "That's another reason we had to wait to get married because Criss was having diffuicult with inflammation that sometimes Criss couldn't stand up straight"Kelly stated. After they finished dinner my uncle looked happy. "I hope you enjoyed dinner". "I did so far Christopher you and my niece look happy but I was wondering if I could see that house Serenity maybe tomorrow"he inquired. "Let me check my schedule and I'll get back to you"Criss replied "Have a good sleep" and he left.

After Kelly's uncle left Criss drove Kelly home. "Thanks for playing along". "I think it's kind of funny to be pulling a fast one-". Criss pulled over and got out. Kelly got out as Criss was leaning against the car. "You all right Criss?". Criss nodded but Kelly saw him biting his lip. "You're having an inflamation attack" she said. "Yea this is the only part of the disease I hate"he stated as the pain subsided. "I hope what we're doing isn't making the disease cranking" as Criss snickered. "No but you saw the way I was when I was putting together Believe I was spending most of the time either in the bathroom or doubled over to the point where JD or Costa would try to convince me to go to the hospital to make sure I didn't have an obrestruction"Criss replied. "I remember that Criss but if it ever gets to that point we'll stop all right". "Agreed" and they shook hands.
The next day when Criss got to the office Robert was there. "Christopher where's my niece?". "She'll be in soon I have a standing appointment with my brothers". "Christopher I wanted to ask you this not around my niece. Have you ever cheated on her?". "No I wouldn't do such a thing to her" Criss replied. "That's all iI wanted to know" and he left. When Criss got to the resteraunt the guys were eatting but looking at the food made Criss's appettie had for the door. "You all right Criss?". "Yea I just met Kelly's uncle the man intimidates me a little"Criss replied. "He's also a fanastic chef too"Costa stated. "Did you say chef?"Criss said a little shocked. "You've never heard of Robert Irvine". "It's not like I have time to watch the Food Network"Criss stated. "Somebody's cranking what's your problem". "I spent most of the night in the bathroom"Criss stated. "Hope Hammie wasn't inthere". "Very funny I'm going to catch a cat nap before the meeting" and Criss left.
When Kelly arrived at work her uncle was waiting. "Kelly just who I wanted to talk to". "Uncle I'm running late what is it?". "I saw Criss this morning but you weren't with him why is that?" he asked. "Because he and his brothers have breakfast together now excuse me" and walked to the office. When she came in Criss was on the phone with Sandra. "Yes I'll see you soon baby" and hung up. "How's Sandra's father doing?" she asked. "Better the surgery wasn't as bad as they thought it would-be"Criss remarked. "Your instines are inflammed again". "It's-nothing just got to relax myself"he stated. "Criss if it's because of what-". Criss opened his drawer and took out a ring box. Kelly took one look at it and her jaw fell to the floor. "You're going to ask Sandra to marry you!!!". "Yea when we go to Mexico in a month that's why I've been like this" he replied.
"Well congrates Christopher you and Sandra are going to be so happy together" giving him a kiss. "Thanks" as Kelly gave him the box back. While Criss was doing a run through of Believe Kelly was doing her work. In Believe Criss told Costa and JD what he had planned for Mexico. "Congrates Criss we were wondering if you'd take the plunge again" as JD gave him a hug. "Great now I'm going to be the only single brother"Costa remarked as they laughed. "Just keep between us I want tomake this special for Sandra"Criss inquired. "What about mom she's has to known"JD remarked. "JD you know mom if I tell her than she's going to tell everyone from here to Greece than the tabloids will find out and there goes the surprise just keep it to yourself untill I know if she'll say yes"Criss stated. "So this is why your Chron's has been flaring up you've been nervous about this"JD replied. "Also having a grilled cheese wasn't the best idea either"Criss added.
As Criss did Believe Kelly went home. When she got home Lynn was watching him with Dimi. "Mommy"Marcus called out as he ran to me. "Hey buddy thanks for watching him" she said. "No problem Kelly Dimi why don't you get Marcus ready for bed". "I'll be in to tuck you in"Kelly called out and they left. "Kelly when I picked up Marcus from school I saw a guy sitting in a black ford outside. He followed us untill we got to yor apartment than he left" she stated. "Was he wearing glasses with black hair?". "Yea". He should of became a PI than a chef I thought. "Don't worry but thanks for telling me". After Kelly tucked Marcus in she didn't know what to do. Back at The Luxor Criss was changing when JD came in. "What's up?"Criss asked. "Kelly's uncle's waiting for you out in the lobby"JD stated. When Criss came out her uncle was waiting there.
"Christopher I have to say that was a cool show" Robert remarked. "Thanks can I help you with something?". "I was wondering about a few things about Marcus and my niece"he replied. "Like what?". "Who picks him up when Kelly works here?". "My niece Dimi watches him Marcus really likes his cousin Dimi considering she's his only cousin"Criss remarked. "So your other brother isn't married". "My brother Costa hasn't a had a serious relantionship since I was married the first time" Criss remarked. My uncle's eyes popped out. "You've been married before?". "Yes but we're divorced for a while before I married-Kelly" Criss replied. "All right we'll talk later" and he left. After that Criss bent over one of the chairs in the lobby. After the pain subdded he called Kelly but she didn't answer.
The next day when Kelly got to work Sandra was there talking to JD and Costa. "Sandra what are you doing here I thought you weren't coming home for a while". "Didn't you hear Criss was admitted to the hospital last night. He had a fever of a hundred and three"she replied. "Did Criss have an obrusction?" Kelly inquired a little worried. "His intestines were so extremely inflammed they couldn't tell"Costa remarked. Then Kelly noticed her uncle watching them so she walked over. "What did you say to Criss last night?". "Nothing but I'm surprised that he was married before did you know?" he asked. "Yea everyone who's a loyal knows about Joann but I didn't care just like my mother her marriage to my dad didn't work out"Kelly remarked. Then JD walked over. "Come on Kelly". "We'll talk later," and they left. "thanks JD I was ready to punch my own uncle"she replied. They walked into the production office and JD shut the blinds.
"All right Kelly what is up with you and Criss. You guys are actting strange whenever your uncle is close" he asked. "It's nothing JD my uncle has that way with people sometimes" she replied. "Kelly is Marcus Criss's son?"he asked. Kelly couldn't believe that. "JD if in some alternate world Marcus was Criss's you guys would be the first to know before he was even born"she replied. "It's just the way Criss acts around Marcus he acts like-". "A father JD we all know Criss wants to be a father but he and Sandra just aren't ready for that. Criss is just a male role model to Marcus that's all" she replied and left.
