“Thanks for everything David” Liliana said as she
and David approached her house. “Ahh it’s nothing really..I had a really good
time with you and little Criss” David said happily. “and me too” Eli exclaimed
surprising David. “And you as well” David said with a laugh. Cristopher came
out running all happy with his soccer ball in hand. Liliana and David looked at
him with a smile. “Well little man I think is time to put you up to bed” Eli
said. “Say good night to David, Christopher” Liliana exclaimed looking at her
son. “Buenas Noches Señor David and thank you for the soccer ball. I had a good
time tonight” Cristopher said with a little smirk. “I’m glad you had fun that’s
all that matter, good night” David said as he put his hand on Christopher’s
head. Christopher hugged and kiss Liliana and said good night and in went Eli
holding Christopher’s hand inside the house. There was complete silence between
Liliana and David. Suddenly David broke the ice by clearing his throat and
making Liliana look at him. “So, are you giving me the privilege to see
you..again?” he asked with a certain sparkle in his eyes. Liliana smiled. She
felt like a teenage girl who had just been asked out by the cute guy who lives
down the street. She blushed a little and started to feel butterflies in her
stomach. But all of the sudden reality hit her and her smile quickly faded. “What’s
wrong?” David asked worried. “It’s obvious we’re not some teenagers who easily
go out on dates and what not..we’re adults and well we have responsibilities..what
I’m trying to say is that I have a son and he’s all that matters to me right
now and I just don’t wanna mess anything up right now” she said sadly while
David listen carefully. “Liliana…I’m not asking for you to be my wife or anything
like that. I understand that we are not teenagers anymore but that we are
adults. And as adults I know that what I’m looking for is something serious. I
know that you have a son! But that’s not an obstacle for me to not see you
again. I want to see you and Christopher as well. Please just be open to new
paths and let me get to know you and your son..what do you say to that?” David
said with hopes. “Please say yes mommy!” Little Christopher shouted as he
peaked out from the window.
Back in New York
As Criss and Sandra were talking Criss felt
something in his chest and grabbed himself. “Are you ok Criss?” Sandra asked
worried. “I don’t know I just started to feel like something was taken away
from me!” he said with a heavy breathe. “is it something physical. Does it hurt
you?” Sandra asked even more worried. “No!..it’s more emotional!” he said as he
started to tear up.

“We need to take you to a hospital” Sandra stated
while she started to stand up. “It’s fine Sandra. I don’t think is necessary”
Criss replied as he grabbed her hand to sit her back down. Sandra looked at him
worried. She knew he was hurting but not physically. It was more on the deeper
level, more personal, more sentimental. She wonder what would of her life have
been if she had stayed with Criss. She loved him, but then again she hesitated
a bit when she remember that she had lied to him about little Cristina. She
knew Criss was a nice person however, deep down she made this unconscious idea that Criss
would never forgive her for what she did.
“Are you ok Sandra?” Criss said as he looked at her
confused. “Yes, I’m fine. I was just thinking that it would be better if a
doctor saw you” she said with a worried look. Criss could see that Sandra
really cared for him. However, if it wasn’t for that awful lie, he probably
would be with her right now sharing a wonderful life together as a family, but destiny
had other plans.
“Criss so where is Liliana?” Sandra asked a bit
nervous. Criss hesitated a bit and looked down at his drink. “ I..don’t know”
he finally said. Sandra was confused. She wasn’t expecting that kind of answer.
“What do you mean you don’t know? Weren’t you two together?” she asked while she looked at Cristina who
was playing on the other chair. “Well, yeah we were together. But due to some circumstances…we
ended our relationship” he stated sadly.
“I’m sorry” she replied while she reached for his hand that was resting
on the edge of the table. Criss looked at it and slowly raised his eyes until
it met Sandra’s.
she said as she whipped her tears away. Criss quickly stood up and stared at
"what?" he said waiting for an answer.
"You deserve much better than me.."
Liliana said trying to hold her tears back.
"Don't say that..." Criss interrupted.
"Criss there is always something in the way
between you and me. First it was the law, second it was johnny, now is
her...don't you see, we're not meant to be together. Destiny will always keep us apart" she said as she looked at
"Lily we're meant to be together...these are
just obstacles, but we can overcome them" Criss remarked.
“She’s right destiny will always keep us apart”
Criss whispered. “What did you said?” Sandra asked confused. Criss nodded his
head. “Nothing” he stated. He looked outside the window for a moment and
quickly looked down to see that Sandra was still holding his hand. He abruptly
grabbed Sandra’s hand with both of his hands and got closer to her. “ Sandra I
know that we been through some rought patches in our lives. But I believe that
if you are here with me right now is for a reason. I believe that we can make
this work again.” He stated as he looked at her and glanced at little Cristina.
“What do you say Sandra? Would you give this crazy guy another chance at love?”
he stated firmly. Sandra looked at him surprised, she was speechless but she
knew that if she hesitated more in answering maybe he would back down on his
proposal. “Of course Criss” Sandra answer. Criss smiled and quickly but gently planted
a kiss on her.

Ch. 101 making changes
“Good morning” Eli said as she walked into the
kitchen. “Good morning” Liliana stated as she prepared herself a nice cup of
hot coffee. She glanced at Eli who was now in front of the fridge deciding what
to have for breakfast. Liliana smiled and nodded her head slyly and made her
way to the table. “So…how was last night?” Eli stated as she took out a bowl
from the counter top. Liliana glared at her while she took a sip from her
coffee. “…Good…” lily said and continued to enjoy her drink. Eli quickly turned
around “WHAT? JUST GOOD?” she exclaimed as she too made her way into the table.
Liliana gave her a surprised yet sarcastic look. “Umm yeah! What else do you
want me to say?” she stated. “Well I don’t know… you could say that it was amazing,
that maybe Señor David kissed you good night…” “Eli!!!” Liliana interrupted her
shocked. “What?..it could of happen..Just saying. You don’t need to get all feisty
on me” Eli continued as a small grin appeared on her face.
Liliana sighed and rolled her eyes. She took another
sip from her mug and put it down.
"I don't care!" Criss shouted again.
"Damn it Criss you're scaring your child!" Costa exclaimed as he saw
Liliana and little Christopher crying. "Think about your son!" JD
proclaimed. George just remained quite trying to understand what was going on.
" Oh for haven's sake..don't put my son into this" Criss exclaimed
angered. "You don't get it JD, no one does. I need to feel alive again. I
need to feel my heart beating faster than ever. The adrenaline through my
veins. I want that excitement back..." Criss explained. "Criss please
don't..." Liliana said but was interrupted by Criss. "That's why I'm
going back to robbing backs!" he stated firmly. Liliana grabbed her son
tighter as tears continued to stream down her face. Costa's and George's jaw
hit the floor at the sound of those news. George rapidly let Criss go. There
was almost complete silence. You could hear the hard breathing and the deep
sobs of little Christopher. Criss finally broke the silence. "I'm going
back to Europe. My job here as a magician has come to an end" he stated
and started to make his way to the door. Suddenly, Liliana spoke out, "If
you walk out of the door...forget that you have a son and a girl who loves
you!" Liliana said between sobs. Everyone looked at her shocked. They
weren't expecting that. Criss just stared at her and without saying a word
“Lily..lily..lily!!” Eli exclaimed. “Yes!” Liliana
responded. “What’s wrong? You all of the sudden spaced off..you ok?”Eli asked
concerned. “Oh I’m fine. Just tired that’s all” she lied. “ Ok” Eli said and
continued to eat her breakfast. Liliana stared at her for a moment and quickly
stood up and headed towards the sink to wash her cup. She looked outside the
window. It was beautiful Tuesday morning. The sky was blue than ever. Birds
were chirping and the sun rays were just welcoming the day. Little Cristopher
had left to school and Liliana had few errands to run that day. “Eli do you
think that I should accept David’s proposal?” she said interrupting Eli from
her breakfast. Eli looked a bit thrown off with the question and looked at
Liliana who was leaning against the sink. “About you two going out? Hell yeah!..Lily
come on is not like you’re an old lady. You’re young you have the right to meet
new people” She said. Liliana looked bit worried and Eli noticed it. “Hey Lily
look at me..listen…I know that you’re a bit scared because of what happed with
Criss and well you have a son and you need to look after him. But hey! Like David
said he wants something serious. He knows you have a kid and for heaven sake he
bonded with him beautifully. My advice to you is yes! Accept David’s proposal.
Go out on a date with him! Get to know him! If you realized he is not the one
you’re looking for..tell him and its over” Eli stated firmly. Liliana stood
there quietly but suddenly a smirk appeared on her face. “You’re right” she
Later that afternoon Liliana got ready and run some
errand around town. She knew it was time
to go pick up Cristopher from school and headed over there. She parked her car
and looked at her watch two more minutes she said and got out of the car and
walked to the school gate. The bell rang and kids started to come out. She said
hello to a few kids and a few moms. “Mami!” Cristopher shouted as he run to her
mom’s arms. “My angel!” she stated with a smile and kissed his head. “How was school?” She asked as she and
Cristopher started to walk back to the car. “It was fun! Today we learned about
the weather. And how rain is form” he stated excited. “Wow sounds like you had
a blast” she said as she opened the door for him. She got into the car and
buckled up. She sighed and looked at her son who was in the passenger’s seat. “Are
you hungry?” she asked. “Yes” he stated. “Wanna go eat at Chayito’s place?” she stated.
“Yes!” he said with a big smile. And off they drove.
As they arrived at the little bistro and order some
drinks little Criss asked. “Is my aunt Eli coming?” Lianana looked at him. “No
sweety she went to have lunch with Cousin Sofia. As they waited for their meals
to arrive Liliana took the opportunity to talk about something serious with her
son. “Baby? What do you think about David?” she said a bit nervous. Little
Criss put his drink down on the table. “Señor David? He’s great mom! He knows
how to play soccer. And you know I love soccer. He’s really cool” he explained
as he continued to zip on his drink. Liliana smiled. “Yes he is a nice man…and…what
do you think of him coming home to see me and you of course?” Liliana asked. “Like
he being your boyfriend?” he asked. “Well no baby not like that but like trying
to get to know us a bit more…” “so he could be your boyfriend?” he
interrupted. Well..”Liliana said. “I don’t
mind..I would love that mami! I could see that he really likes you!” little
Criss said with a smile. “You think so?” Liliana asked surprised. “Oh yes! I
know! Trust me Señor David likes you a lot” he stated. Liliana smiled and
reached for his little boy’s hand. “I love you mami and I want you to be happy
and I think Señor David can do that!” he said while he got down from the chair
and hugged Liliana. “And I also wanna a dad!” he stated making Liliana widen
She wasn’t expecting that to come out from her little boy. “Baby you
know you have a father!” she said. “I know that” he explained. “Tell me
something baby, do you want to meet your real father? You know that if that’s
the case I will gladly look for him so you could meet him.” She explained as
she put her son on her lap. Christopher looked down for a moment. “I know who
he is I’ve seen his magic shows and I have picture of him in my room remember?”
he said. “Yes I know that sweetheart. But is another different story when
meeting him in person” Liliana explained. “I know that! But I don’t want to
meet him!” he said looking at his mom’s eyes.
