When the gang came back Criss and Trina were watching some video. "What are you watching?"George inquired coming in. "Just some video mom brought" Criss replied. "How's your mother?". "Better she's in her room resting right now"Criss replied as George sat down with the twins on the floor and Sandra holding John in her lap. "Christopher is that you?"Sandra asked when she saw Criss doing demostration. "Believe or not yea"Criss remarked giggling. "I can't believe how long your hair was"Trina said. "I'm just thankful someone taught him how to dress"George added as everyone laughed. As the video went on Trina's phone went off. "Hello Marcus what can I do for you?"she asked. "Well I was wondering if you, Criss, George and Sandra are busy tonight". "Why you treating us to dinner?".
"No I've been gambling free for a year tomorrow and I would like you guys there at the meeting"he asked. "Let me call you back,"Trina stated and went back to the living room. "Criss do you think your niece can babysit the kids for a while". "I can call why?". "Marcus is getting his one year thing tonight and he wants us there". "Let me call Dimi and see"Criss replied getting up. He went into his office and called Dimi. "Hello". "Dimitra is your uncle Criss"he said. "What's up you and Sandra need a babysitter for tonight?". "Dimi you're starting to get good at mentalism but you're half right. George and Trina were wondering if you could watch the twins too just for a little while". "Can't grandma do that?". Criss didn't want to worry Dimi about what happen to Dimitra today so he decided to lie. "Your grandmother is a little under the weather. I think the heat just got to her but I want her to take it easy so do you mind just coming over here to Serenity?". "All right Uncle Criss I'll be there" and hung up
Criss came out and said it was all right. "Let me call Marcus back and tell him". As Trina called back her brother Sandra noticed Criss looked a little white. "You all right Criss?"Sandra asked. Criss ran over to the kitchen sink and vomited. "Oh my god Criss". Criss turned on the facuit to clean out the sink as Sandra gave him a cloth to wipe his mouth. "You all right Criss the last time I saw you do that Sandra was pregnant"George said. "I'm fine" as Trina came back in. "You lied didn't you"Trina replied. "I'm confused"Sandra remarked. "Criss hates to lie so much that when he does he throws up"Trina explained. "I couldn't even lie to my parents when I was a kid they would know if I threw up than I was lieing or had a stomach virus"Criss said.
When we got to the church where the meeting was being held Marcus was outside. "Hey bro"Trina remarked giving him a hug. "Thanks for coming"he said. "So what's going on why did you want us here?"Sandra asked. "You guys have been great to me since I decided to get help for my addiction even you Criss. That wake up call you did really helped me"Marcus stated. "It's no problem Marcus"Criss remarked. "Why don't we go in before they start the meeting with out us"Marcus suggested. "I'll be right down"Criss said and they went down as Sandra stayed behind. "Something bugging you Christopher?"she asked.
"Just thinking of the past and realizing what could of happened if I took that money my mom gave me to fund my show to pay off my bookies"Criss replied. "Criss that's the past you said that vision you think your father sent you helped you see what was going on"she replied. "I guess so" and they went downstairs. When they got down there Criss was shocked to see his mother and his brothers in the basement. "What's going on?"he said surprised. "Well Criss I was talking with Marcus a few weeks ago and he informed me that your one year anniversary was coming up"Trina said. "We knew that you wouldn't invite your family so I played a little misdirection as Trina puts it and planned this for you"Marcus replied. Criss wiped a tear from his face. Criss went up to the podium as they gave him his chip.
"When I first got this addiction I thought I could control but it took a premenation of my mom sitting on the sidewalk with a foreclourse sign on our house to show me that the addiction had control over me. I took my punishment that day and ended up being in a hospital bed in pain. I never thought in my wildest dream that the gambling would take control again but it took a good friend and my wife to realize I was heading down that same road again so thank you"Criss replied. Criss walked over to his mom and gave her a hug. "That was a wonderful speech Christopher"she remarked. "Yea it was Criss"JD added. "Why don't we all go back to serenity before Dimi reconsiders having kids when she's older"Trina suggested and they left. The next day George was working with Criss when the phone rang.
"Hello yes this George what are they all right I'll be right there" and hung up. "George what's wrong?"Criss inquired as George sat there in shock. "Trina and the girls were involved in a car accident they had to be cut out of the car"he replied. "Come on George I'm driving you to the hospital" Criss said putting on his coat. George got up as Costa walked in. "Where are you guys going?"he asked. "Trina and the girls were in a car accident I'm driving George to the hospital"Criss replied. "I'll give Marcus a heads up do you want me to call Sandra?"Costa asked. "No I will" and they left. When they got to the hospital George was talking to a nurse as Criss was on the phone with Sandra.
"I don't know anything yet when I find out I'll tell you. I love you too" and hung up. "Trina's in surgery with internal bleeding and other injuries" George stated. "The girls what about the girls?". "April's fine she's got a broking arm. Chole on the other hand is critical she 's unconscious and she hasn't woken up yet. They're thinking that she might have brain swelling they're doing a MRI right now on her. Criss what if I lose my child and the woman I love". Criss gave him a hug as he cried. "It's going to be all right George just relax". "Daddy"a voice called out. He turned around and saw April. "Oh April my aweetie". He picked her up and hugged her. "Where's mommy and Chole?". "We don't know yet sweetie"George remarked. Then Marcus showed up. "George how's Trina I came as fast as I could". "Criss why don't you take April to your house for tonight"George suggested.
"All right come on sweetie let's go see Auntie Sandra and baby John"Criss said. Geogre gave her a kiss and a hug and told Criss he'd call if he had anymore information. "You got it" and they left. At the house Sandra was upstairs putting JOhn to bed as Criss came in with a sleeping April in his arm. Sandra came down to see Criss putting April on the couch. "How's Trina and Chole?"she whispered. He took her into the kitchen. "Chole may have fluid on the brain and Trina is in surgery"Criss replied. "Poor Trina who's with George at the hospital". "Marcus Costa gave him the heads up" Criss said. "Do you mind if I go down there later". "No I'll stay here with April and John"Criss replied.
That night Criss called his mom and informed her about what happened. "Have you heard anything different?". "Trina's out of surgery but Chole has some blood on her brain and swelling so they put her in a medical induce coma untill the swelling goes down enough". "How's George holding up?". "He's tough mom but I'd probably be going out of my mind if it was Sandra and John"Criss remarked. "Well keep me informed Christopher and tell George we're praying for him". "I will mom" and hung up as April came over. "Uncle Cwriss"she said. "Yea sweetie what's wrong you have a nightmare?"he asked. "Is mommy and my switter going to meet grandmom and grandpa". Criss picked her up. "No sweetie right now they're just hurt and the doctors are doing their best to help them so they can come hom and see you". "I miss them"she said as she started to cry.. "It's all right April"Criss remarked as he hugged her. When Sandra came home Criss was outside.
When she got closer Criss was holding a sleeping April. "She got so scared that she was going to lose her mom and sister she just strted to cry so I brought her out here to stare at the stars"Criss remarked. "When did she fall asleep?". "a few minutes ago do you think you can take her my arm is falling asleep and so are my legs"Criss askied. Sandra picked her up and brought her inside as Criss got up to get the blood flowing back into his arms and legs. After Sandra put April in the guest room she walked over to Criss. "How's Trina and Chole?". "Trina's all right for now, but Chole is in a coma George is in the ICU going from Trina's room to Chole's"she replied. "I talked to my mom to tell her what happened she wants me to keep her updated"Criss stated.
"I just feel so bad for George after everything he's gone through with the kids and his mom he may lose his wife and child,"she said. Criss gave Sandra hug. "I don't know what I'd do if I lost you and John". "Me either why don't you go to bed and I'll stay down here just incase April has a nightmare"Criss suggested. "All right". Criss got a blanket and a pillow than went down stairs.
The next day George went home to change and when he came back Criss was there visiting Chole. "I thought you'd be at work?"George said as Criss looked up. "I wanted to see Trina and Chole"he replied giving Chole a kiss as he walked over to George. "I can't believe a guy who was texting put my daughter and wife in the ICU"he stated. "George relax they're going to be all right you can't let it get to you"Criss replied. "I know". "George why don't you go home and take a nap you look exhausted". "I can't leave them here". "George staying here isn't going to help Chole and Trina get better"Criss said to his cousin. "What if Chole opens her eye for a minute and I'm not here". "George I'll be here I took for once in my life a personal day so go home and get some rest. If Chole wakes up I'll call you"Criss suggested. "All right" and George left. In Trina's room she was on the phone with Sandra.
"I can't believe April got away with a couple of cuts and a broking arm". "Maybe if you're up to it I'll bring her down to see you. She was afraid you and Chole were going to meet your parents in heaven"she stated. "Thanks again for taking her last night". "It's no problem what are god parents for. Now just get better" Sandra replied and hung up as Criss came in. "Criss what are you doing here?". "The only way I could make your husband leave was to stay here beside for once in my life I took a personal day"he said. Trina picked up the phone. "Hello Las Vegas time did you hear Criss Angel took a personal day"she joked as Criss laughed. "Very funny"Criss said as he sat down. "How Chole they won't tell me anything including George. Criss took a breath. "She's got brain swelling and blood on the brain. They put her in a medical induce coma untill the swelling goes down,"Criss explained. Tears started to fall down Trian's face. "Trina look at me don't worry Chole is going to survive". "I'm scared that's I'm going to lose her Christopher". "Don't think the worest about this. Think of the happy times when you told George about their impeding arrival or the way I had to con you two into having dinner together". Trina chuckled. "Thanks Criss" she remarked. "You just relax and I'll go see Chole for a while than go home to watch the kids so Sandra can come up". He gave Trina a hug and left the room After he left the room Criss wiped the tears from his face. Dad if you can hear me don't let Chole or Trina die.
