"Come on" Criss called out since the music was pumping so loud it was hard to hear anything. Outside Blade was trying to figure out how to get to me and Criss when he saw a back entrance and two bartenders using it. "Come on Jack we have to restock the bar tonight". "I know I know". Luke grabbed one of the boxes and went in unnoticed. In the club Criss and I were having a drink when they started to play Savage Garden. "I love this song come on Criss" taking Criss's hand. We went on the dance floor and started to slow dance. As the song played I felt like it was just me and Criss. Criss twirled me and I started to smile as I put my head on Criss's chest. Near where we were sitting Luke found our drinks and put something in it. After the song finished everyone clapped. "You're not a bad dancer Criss?"I remarked. "Slow dancing I can handle but fast one forget it"Criss replied as he took a sip of his drink and I took a drink of mine.
All of a sudden Criss started to rub his eyes. "You all right?"I inquired. "Yea it's just getting a little hazy in here". "Why don't we go outside and get some fresh air"I suggested. "All right" and we left. As we started to walk everything started to look strange and I could tell Criss was feeling the same way. I dropped to my knees as everything started to go black. In the production office Costa was talking on the phone when he noticed a crowd. Costa went out to see what was going on. He pushed people back. When he got closer Costa saw it was me and Criss on the floor out cold. Costa bent down to check to see if we had a pulse as JD came in and saw what was going on. "Are they alive?"he asked. "Yea it looks like they were knocked out"Costa replied. Then Criss started to seize. "JD call an ambulance Criss having a seizure!!" Costa called out. The ambulance came and loaded me and Criss up. In the back I was coming to. "What happened?" I asked the EMT. "It seems someone drugged you and your friend we're going to take you to the hospital to have you checked out"the person replied. I turned and saw Criss was still out cold with an oxygen mask on him. "Criss"I called out. "Your friend is pretty out of it he had a seizure". Then the ambulance stopped.
"Greg what's going on?". The man turned and it was Blade. He pulled out a gun and aimed it at the EMT. "Get out and I won't kill you"he ordered. "Blade don't shot there's oxygen on you'll blow us to the heaven!!"I called out trying to get off the stretcher. The EMT got up but left me his cell phone. I put it in my bra as the EMT got out. Luke got out himself as the EMT closed the doors. I got off the stretcher and checked on Criss. "Christopher!"I remarked but he was still out of it. All of a sudden I heard a gun shot and I knew what Blade did. I realized I had to get Criss out of here before Blade killed both of us. I turned my head and saw Blade left the keys. "Thanks dad"I muttered as I got in the driver's seat. Outside Luke was pulling the dead body off the road when I started the ambulance up. I put the car in drive and sped off. When Blade saw what I did he shot the gun and a bullet hit me in my arm. "Dam it" as I looked at the gun shot wound. At The Luxor JD was on the phone with the hospital. "Are you serious all right" and hung up as Costa came in. "What's wrong?" Costa inquired. "Blade hijacked the ambulance Criss and Louise were in"JD replied.
"Do they know where it is?". "No it's old ambulance it doesn't have GPS"JD stated. Then Costa's phone rang. "Hello". "Costa's it's Lousia I'm in the ambulance with Criss I left Blade on the side of the road". "Where are you?". "I-I don't know but I've been shot in the arm"I remarked. "Costa what's going on?". "Lousie has Criss but she's been shot"he replied. Then I saw where I was and pulled over. "Costa I'm at the canyon Criss did the mail bag escape" I remarked. "How's Criss?". I looked in the back and Criss was starting to wake up. "He's coming too I'm going to hide the ambulance just incase Blade is coming for us"I stated.
"I'll have the police meet you there just stay hidden" and Costa hung up. When Criss finally came to I was bandaging myself up. "What happened?"he asked as Criss took the oxygen mask off. "Luke Blade drugged us and tried to hijack the ambulance" as I threw the bloody rag on the ground. "What the hell happened to you?". "Blade had a gun and shot at the ambulance. I got shot but thankfully it was a through and through" I replied. "Where are we?". "Bolder City Nevada near where you did the mailbag escape,"I stated. "We need to ditch this ambulance Blade's probably looking for it". "I was thinking that myself". I helped Criss up and we got out of the ambulance. "Which way do you want to go?"I asked Criss saw the ambulance was parked next to a tree and something was brewing in his head. "Got a pocket knife?". "Yea why?"I asked giving him it. Criss took the knife out and craved a cross into the tree with the initials JDS underneath it. "A little sign for Costa or JD when they come looking for us". "Those are your father's initials"I said. "Iím just hoping Blade doesn't know that. Come on" and we left.
We hid in some bushes as we waited for the police to arrive but a green hummer pulled up instead. I looked and saw George getting out. What's he doing here I thought. "What's going on?"Criss whispered. "It's George he's the one who gave Fred and Luke those drugs to put into your system also he's Luke's Blade half brother"I whispered. "Thanks for getting me I forgot how sneaky Louise is". Coming from the other end was Luke. "Great the whole families here"I muttered. "Are you sure they were heading this way?"George asked. "It's the only place for miles"Luke replied. Then Criss's stomach started to gurgle. "Oh man" Criss said putting his hand over his mouth. "What's wrong?". "I'm going to be sick" he remarked. "Hold it down Criss if they hear you puking we're going to be meet your father up in heaven" I said as Criss took his hand away from his mouth. "There's the ambulance so they couldn't of gotten far" Luke said as they walked to the car. Then Criss's stomach made the same sound again and Criss could taste the vomit in his mouth.
"Come on Criss hold it down if you can eat a mouse with out puking you can do this". Criss put his hand over his mouth trying not to throw up. "Well it looks like you shot one of them" looking at the bloody two by fours in the ambulance. "Louise I can't hold it down I got to vomit" Criss whispered. "Come on Criss you have to keep it down". Criss couldn't hold it and puked. "What was that?" George stated. "Sounding like someone throwing up come on" Luke remarked. After Criss finished I turned and saw them coming. "Come on they heard you" and we started to run off. As we ran I tripped falling to the ground. I saw my foot was caught on some barb wire. Criss came back as I tried to get the barb wire off of me. "Criss get out of here they're going to get you!!". "Not with out you"Criss replied. Criss got the wire off me but before I could get up I saw Blade in front with a gun pointed at Criss. "Get up you two"he replied. Criss and I got up as George came over with a syringe in his hand and stuck me and Criss knocking us both out.
When I finally woke up I took a look around and saw I was in a cage with my legs handcuffed inside. "What the-". I looked down and saw water. "Silverton"I muttered. I looked around but didn't see Criss anywhere. "I see someone's awake" A voice called out. I saw George walking around the tank. "George you where's Criss?"I inquired. Right on cue Luke brought Criss out tied up. Criss looked at me as Luke sat him up. "You know Louise I don't see what you see in him this punk". "Can we get this going the crowd's getting antsy" Luke replied. "The crowd will stay if they want to see this trick" George replied. "Let her go George!!"Criss called out. "Shut up pretty boy after she's done you're next and I'll make sure your death is worse than what Fred and Luke did to you,"George remarked. Criss wanted to punch him but Luke tied him better than anyone in his crew has done.
"All right bro put Criss in the chair and make sure he doesn't get out. He can watch while his girlfriend drown"George replied. My heart started to pound as I kept eye contact with Criss. "All right let's get it going before my fan base leavesĒ Luke remarked. "Stage is yours brother"George said going over to the leveler. As Luke did his intro I saw Criss was trying to get out of the rope. Come on Mindfreak if you can get out of a straightjacket while being pulled by a jet ski in the water I know you can do this I thought. "All right on the count of three our lovely assistant will be plunge into the water below and she'll try to escape out of the cage with her legs shackled inside the cage with no way of breaking the locks"Luke said starring at me taking his eyes off Criss who got one of his hands out. "One-Two-". Before Luke could get to three Criss got out and tackled Luke to the ground. When George saw what was going on he took the safety off and the cage splashed into the water. "LOUISA!!"Criss yelled.
As the cage hit the water I took a deep breath of air but got water instead. I didn't know what to do I had nothing to pick the locks with and my brain was telling me to breath. All of a sudden I heard a splash and saw Criss swimming down with something in his mouth. When he got closer I saw it were keys. Criss opened the door but before he gave me the keys he kissed me giving me some air to breath. After that he gave me the keys so I could unlocked the cuffs. Up on the surface police came in with guns drawn including Detective Taylor and arrested George and Luke. "You're too late Criss and Louise are corpses"George said. "Detective Taylor look"an officer remarked. In the water they could see bubbles coming up. "Pull it up"Taylor yelled. Under the water the keys wouldn't work.
Criss could tell I was running out of air but when he saw the cage moving up he took hold. When the cage got to the surface Criss swam to the side. "Get some bolt cutter now!!"Criss called out as he got out. "I'll get them"an officer stated and left. George and Luke watched as they put the cage down. Criss ran over to see me laying there unconscious. "She's got no pulse"Taylor said. Criss took me out and started to do mouth to mouth on me. "Give it up Mindfreak she's dead!!"Luke called out. "Get them out of here and make sure Blade has a cop with him I don't want him by himself"Taylor remarked as they took them away. "Come on Louise I can't lose you"Criss muttered. After Criss gave me his last breath I started to cough up water. Criss just smiled as Taylor came over with bolt cutters and cut the handcuffs off my ankles. Downstairs in the police cars Luke and George thought they had killed me when a stretcher came out with me on it wrapped up while Criss followed with a towel wrapped around him too. As they loaded me up I saw George and Luke looking at me so with my last bit of strength I flipped them off which Criss happily joined in as well.
