A few days went by since my grandmother brought Nathan to his father. Criss was doing a pretty good job being a single father but he still wish that I was there with him. At the Luxor JD came in to see Criss asleep on the couch. "Hey Criss wake up"he said shaking him. Criss woke up. "Does Nathan need to be feed?"Criss asked wiping his eyes. "No Lynn is watching him remember. Boy you look wiped" JD remarked as pulled a seat over. "I'll tell you this Nathan's lungs are fine I'm surprise my neighbors aren't complaining about the noise"he stated. "How much sleep have you been getting?"JD inquired. "Three maybe four hours a night"Criss replied muffling a yawn. "Why don't you throw some water on your face and wake up"JD suggested. After Criss left the officer Lynn came in with Nathan. "No wonder Criss can't keep a nanny for long Nathan won't stop crying" she remarked putting him on the desk in his carieer. "I can tell Criss looks like he hasn't had a good night sleep for a couple of days now"JD replied. "I just got Nathan to sleep. Just listening to this kid cry is making me want to get my tubes tied"Lynn stated. A few minutes later Nathan woke up and started to scream. "Now I remember why we have one kid"JD remarked picking up Nathan. "Tell Criss I can't watch Nathan I don't have the patience. Try finding a saint or someone that's deaf" and she left. "It's all right Nathan everyone can't help it that you're blowing out their ear drums"JD stated as Criss came in. "I guess Lynn couldn't take it either" as he took Nathan from JD. "Criss I can't believe I'm going to say this but I think you may need Mom for this kid before you end up losing your mind from a lack of sleep or your hearing from his yelling"JD said. "Give me the phone". In New York Dimitra was having lunch with Wilma. "So how's Criss doing?"Wilma asked. "The last time I talked to him the baby was being fussy"Dimitra replied. "Yea Antonia was a ten on the fussy side Dennis had to give her to me just to get some sleep before he lost his mind" Wilma remarked. The phone rang and Dimitra picked it up. "Hello"she remarked.. "Mom I need you I'm on the verge of going insane!". "Just relax Christopher I can hear Nathan in the background screaming"she replied. "Looks like Nathan has something from his mother"Wilma stated as Dimitra smiled with a grin. "Please mom I haven't slept in two days I've lost four nannies including Lynn I'm at my wits end mom"Criss begged. "Christopher stop begging just let me pack a bag and I'll be there". "Please hurry"he begged and hung up. Dimitra and WIlma chuckled as Dimitra went to pack a bag.

Somewhere I was working at a bar but my mind was on my child and Criss. Even hearing a baby cry brought tears to my eyes. Outside I took out the trash and just looked at the stars. "Antonia"A voice called out. I turned around and saw a lady standing there . "May I help you?" I asked. "You don't know but I know you you have a baby boy named Nathanial that's been crying for his mother"she remarked. "He doesn't deserve me excuse me" I replied and started to leave. "Because you believe what your father told you he's wrong Antonia. You're following in your mother's footstep"she replied. I turned and looked at the woman "My mother left me because she lost her mind"I remarked. "She left because she was afraid of being a mother and she regretted it every waking moment of her life"the lady replied. "What would you like me to do go back to Criss and my son and say I'm sorry for abandoning you I can't" as tears started to fall down my face. "Antonia Marsiol listen to me Criss misses you and so does your family. Go back to them"she stated . The lady walked over and gave me a kiss on my cheek when I opened my eyes she was gone. At Serenity Criss was holding Nathanial in his arm while looking at the sky. He saw a lonely star in the sky.STAR LIGHT STAR BRIGHT LONELY STAR IN THE SKY. PLEASE BRING BACK ANTONIA TO ME AND OUR CHILD. HE NEEDS HIS MOM AS MUCH AS I NEED HERCriss wiped the tears away from his face as Dimitra heard everything he said. A few days passed and I took a train to Las Vegas. As I got off my heart was in my throat. I walked to The Luxor hoping Criss was there. At Serenity Criss was feeding Nathan as Dimitra came down. "Don't tell me he woke you up again?"she inquired. "Believe or not mom he didn't god everytime I look at him it makes me think of Antonia I just wish I knew where she is" trying not let the tears fall. Dimitra gave her youngest child a kiss. "Don't worry Christopher she'll come back to you and her son"she stated. Then Criss noticed the time. "I should get going before Felix has a fit"Criss remarked giving Nathan to Dimitra. "I'll see you when you get home" and Criss left.

When I got to the Luxor my heart was pounding in my chest and tears fell down my face. I was just about to leave when I saw Criss pull up in his Viper. "Thanks Bill"Criss remarked giving him the keys. The valet drove off and Criss was about to go in when he dropped his glasses on the ground. Criss picked them up as I walked up. "Christopher". Criss stood straight up. He turned around and saw me standing there with tears coming down my face. "A-A-Antonia"he stuttered as Criss walked down to me. "Yes Criss it's me"I stated nervously. Criss just looked at me as I stood there. "I just had to see you and Dennis I missed you guys so much". "Nathanial. After you disappeared and I told your grandmother what your father said she and I changed his name to Nathanial our son didn't deserve to be named after the man who made you leave him and me"Criss replied putting his hand on my face. "I let what my father said get to me and I shouldn't of". "It's all right Antonia you're back I didn't blame you for leaving I just wished you'd come back and my wish came true" and hugged me making me smile. "I love you Christopher and I'm sorry for doing that" as tears started to fall down my face. "Antonia you don't need to apologize I'm just happy you're all right and safe"he replied as I looked into his eyes.. "Do you think we can go back to Serenity I just want to hold my child"I replied as more tears fell down my face. Criss smiled as he went over to his bikes and grabbed the keys for them. "Hop on and we'll go see him right now"he stated. "What about work?"I asked a little nervous that Criss maybe putting his job at risk. "Don't worry" and we left. Back at Serenity Dimitra was rocking Nathanial. John please bring Antonia back to her son and ours she prayed. "Mom!!!"Criss called out. Dimitra put Nathan in his crib wondering why Criss wa back. "Mom!!!"he called out again. "Christopher what's with all-". She saw me standing there. "Antonia" she said in shock. "Hi Dimitra" I said. She walked down as Criss just stood there. I walked over to Dimitra and gave her a hug as tears fell down her face. "Your grandmother is going to be so happy to know you're alive and well" she replied. "I know she will I missed her and everyone else" I said. Then Nathan started to cry which we all could hear from the living room. "Why don't you go upstairs and see your son" Criss suggested. I took a breath and walked up the stairs when I walked to the crib and saw my son he stopped crying than looked up at me. "Hey Nathanial I'm your mommy" as tears fell down my face. I sat down in a rocker that was in the room with Nathan in my arms. As I held him he kept looking up at me like he knew I'm his mother which brought tears to my face. I ran my finger down his soft face than he grabbed my finger as I laughed a little. At the door Criss and Dimitra just stood there looking at me. Criss walked over and gave me a kiss. "I think we finally found why you were screaming so much you were screaming for your mommy" Criss stated touching Nathan. Dimitra came in with her camera. "Christopher why don't you kneel next to Antonia". Criss put his hand on my hand as he kneeled next to me. "Smile" and we did. "I'm going to send that to your grandmother right now" and she left. When Criss got up I saw a ring was on my finger. "It was your mothers your uncle gave it to me for when or if I was going to marry you but I want to give it to you as a reminder of your mom" Criss said. I got up slowly and gave Criss a kiss as Nathan burped which made us both laugh.

I'M ON A ROLL WITH THIS=======================Back at the bakery my grandmother was doing some work as uncle Johnny walked in. "Have you gotten a new picture of Nathan yet?"he asked. "I don't know I haven't checked my mail yet since Dimitra left". She went to her computer and punched up her email. When she opened the email from Dimitra tears fell down her face. Johnny ran to his wife. "Carol come here it's important!!!". "What John". "Just come with me" taking her arm and bringing her to the office. In the office my grandmother had tears falling down her face. "What?". My grandmother moved away and on the computer was a picture of Criss, Nathanial, and me. "Oh my god is that Antonia?"she asked surprised. My grandmother nodded as she read the email. IT WAS LIKE A DREAM WHEN I SAW HER STANDING THERE LOOKING A LITTLE NERVOUS. I GAVE HER THE BIGGEST HUG I COULD MUSTERED FOR YOU. IT SEEMS LIKE ON CUE NATHAN STARTED TO CRY AND CRISS JUST SAID WHY DON'T YOU GO UPSTAIRS AND SEE YOUR SON. AFTER A FEW MINUTES WE WENT UP AND SAW HER JUST SITTING IN THE CHAIR HOLDING NATHANIAL. I THOUGHT I'D SURPRISE YOU BY SENDING THIS PICTURE"Thank god she's all right" Aunt Carol remarked. "Wilma print that up I want to show this to someone". Upstairs my father was working as Johnny walked in. "Hey Dennis I got something for you" he stated. "What I'm busy" Dennis replied. He put down the picture and my father couldn't believe it. "She decided to come back to her child and the man she loves. Maybe you should think twice before you open your mouth and try to destory someone's life" and he left as my father looked at the picture.

When Criss got to The Luxor everyone was wondering where he was. "I got a surprise when I got to work Antonia was there waiting for me"he asked. "The woman who abandoned her child. What did you do?"Costa asked. "Before we go any farher JD and Costa I want you to know that if you do anything to upset Antonia I'll disown you guys faster than I make myself disappear you made me lose her once I won't let you guys do it again"Criss replied. "So where is she Criss?"Ayala asked. "She's at Serenity getting to know her son"Criss replied and sat down to work. At the house I was changing Nathan's diaper as Dimitra came in. "Wow Antonia and he didn't even get you" she said as I got him dressed. "I helped my uncle and aunt with their son when he was a baby so I got pratice at dodging a shower from a baby boy,"I said as Nathan chuckled. "You think that's funny don't you". "I'm just happy you're back Antonia I could tell Criss missed you so much he just couldn't stop thinking of you" I replied. "I felt the same way everytime I heard a baby cry I'd think of Nathan when I saw him for the first time I would just tear up" as a tear fell down my face. Dimitra gave me a hug and told me everything was going to be all right. "Thanks Dimitra" and we left the room as Nathan fell asleep. When it came time for lunch Criss went back to the house. "Anyone home" he called out. I came from outside holding Nathan. "I thought I'd looked around with our son" I stated smiling. "I don't know what it is Antonia but since you came back Nathan hasn't been so fussy I think he wanted his mommy"Criss said smiling. "Maybe" as I gave him to Criss. "Where's my mom?". "She wanted to get something for dinner to celebrate my homecoming" getting a bottle for Nathan. "I warned JD and Costa to keep their mouths shut about you or the baby or I'd disown them faster than I disappear"he stated. "Thanks Christopher" as he gave the bottle to Nathan.

A week went by and I was swimming as Nathan slept upstairs but I had the baby monitor on. A knock came to the door so I got out to get it but Cris beat me to the door. He opened the door and JD was there. "Hey JD"I stated. "Antonia come on Criss you've got a meeting that you're going be late for"JD said coming in. "Just give me a second to grab something from my office" and Criss went back to his office as JD sat down. "So how you doing JD?"I asked drying off. "Good how are you adjusting to being a mother" he inquired. "Good it was difficult at first but it getting easier"I replied putting a bottle in the microwave. "Come on JD before Felix has a nutty"Criss remarked. "Criss you going to try to be home for lunch?"I inquired. "I'll try but if the meeting goes later than expected I'll give you a call"Criss said. I walked over and Criss gave me a kiss than left. "So this is where you go for lunch"JD remarked. "Yea Antonia saves Nathan's lunch bottle for me since he's always asleep when I get home from Believe"Criss replied. JD just smiled at his younger brother. "What's with the smile?" he asked. "I'm seeing you in a whole new light Christopher and Antonia" and they left. After I fed Nathan the phone rang. "Hello"I said. "Antonia it's so good to hear your voice" a voice remarked. "Grandmom it's so good to hear your voice" picking up Nathan. "When Dimitra sent me that picture of you holding Nathan tears just fell down my face"she replied. "I'm sorry for putting you and the family through that I-". "Antonia you don't need to apologize your father made you doubt yourself but we're just happy you're all right" she replied. Then Nathan gurgled. "Was that Nathan?". "Yea he's getting so big grandma Dimitra sayes he's reminds her so much of Christopher when he was a baby"I replied. "I'm going to try to come out so I can see you and my great grandchild"she said. "Just tell me when and where and I'll make the arrangement"I remarked. "All right but there is a surprise coming to you from me". "Thanks grandmom" and she hung up as a knock came to the door. I went to the door with Nathan in my arm I opened the door and my uncle Johnny was at the door. "Oh Uncle Johnny what are you doing here?" giving him a hug trying not to hurt Nathan. "There's a bakery's convention here so your grandmother sent me instead of your father" "I'm so happy to see you" as I tried not to cry. "Is that Nathanial god he was just a peanut when I last saw him"he stated. "Here sit down and you can hold Nathan"I stated. We sat down and I gave him to my uncle. "Oh Tony you made such a pretty little baby with Criss"he replied. "Dimitra said the same thing". Then my uncle noticed the ring on my finger. "I see Criss gave you your mother's ring". "Yea he said that you gave it to him for when or if he proposes marriage but he gave it to me so I could remember my mom"I replied. "Your grandmother said something to me she thinks your mother may of sent this little boy to you and Criss for a reason". "Yea he's taking over for his dad when Criss retires from magic" I joked which brought a smile to my uncle's face. "Shoot I have a gift but I left it at the hotel". "Don't worry Uncle Johnny you can give it to me before you leave Las Vegas"I said smiling. Then we noticed Nathan fell asleep in my uncle's arm. At The Luxor Criss had finished the meeting and went to his office. When he got there Costa and JD were waiting there. "Criss can we talk to you alone". "Sure"Criss remarked and they went into the office. "What's up?" as Criss sat down. "We would like to apologize for the way we treated Antonia and hiding those letters on you"Costa stated. "Seriously you're not doing this to make me happy or you got your butts chewed out by mom" Criss remarked. "No when Antonia left we saw how sad you were"JD said. "We just couldn't see how much you and Antonia love eachother untill now" Costa added. Criss got up and walked over to his brothers. "Thanks guys" and gave his brothers a hug.

"How sweet". The guys turned around and saw me standing there with Nathan in his carrier. "What are you doing here?"Criss asked as Costa took the carrier. "I thought I'd come down and bring Nathan down to see where his daddy works"I replied as Costa took him out. "He's getting so big"Costa remarked. "Makes you want to become a father Costa?"JD inquired. "Survey sayes not yet" as everyone chuckled. Then Nathan started to chuckle as Costa made faces. "Ladies aned gentlemen my brother has lost his mind thanks to his nephew Nathan"Criss announced as JD tried not to laugh. "Well I did hear you do lose it when you have a baby"JD jokely said . "Excuse me" and I walked to the bathroom. "Did I say something wrong?" JD asked. "I should of warned you Antonia's mother went crazy when Antonia was a baby her grandmother thinks she had a extreme case of post partum depression which made her mother go crazy to the point where she's in a mental institution somewhere"Criss replied. "I'll go find Antonia and apologise" and JD left. Outside I was thinking when JD found me. "Hey Antonia I wanted to apologise for making that remark Criss told me about your mom"he said. "It's all right JD you didn't know" I replied. As JD and I talked a woman was watching us from a far. She just stared at us untill she saw my uncle coming over with a bag. "Antonia I thought I'd drop this off," giving me a bag. I opened the bag and it was a picture of a woman holding a baby. "That's your mom holding you as a baby I thought you'd like it"he said. "This looks like the woman who told me to go back to Criss and Nathanial. She told me that my mom didn't go insane she was afraid of being a mother and regretted it"I replied. "What else did she tell you?"JD asked. "She told me that Nathanial was crying for his mother. At first I didn't understand why she called him Nathan untill Criss told me that he changed our son's name from Dennis to Nathan"I stated. "But how did she know that you were pregnant or even dating Criss?"JD asked. "She probably saw me with Criss maybe she saw me pregnant when I was walking around New Jeresy or New York"I suggested. "But how did she know that you have a son and what his name is"My uncle inquired. "God only knows"JD stated. "Come on let's go inside". As we went in I turned and saw the woman walking off

Three months had passed since I came back to Criss and my son. Nathan was growing like a weed also Criss and I were reconnecting which made everyone happy. That afternoon Criss was in Believe pacing when Kaylia came walking in. "Christopher why the pacing you worried about tonight's show for some reason?"she asked. "It's not that it's what going to happen at the end I'm going to propose to my girlfriend Antonia and I'm kind of nervous about it" he replied. "You're going to ask Antonia to marry you. Christopher that's so sweet I can't wait to see it"Kaylia remarked. "I'm also worried that my brothers are going to do something stupid even thou they say they love Antonia I just get that feeling that-". "They're lying to you"she finished Criss's sentence. "Yea". "Christopher this is your life and if you want to propose marriage to Antonia do it"she remarked. "Thanks Kaylia" and gave her a hug. "Do you have the ring?" she asked. Criss took out of his pocket and showed it to her. "It's a Marquis cut diamond with her birth stones around the diamond". Kaylia whistled as she gave it back. "Criss if god forbid she doesn't want it I'll take it" she stated as Criss laughed.At Serenity I was feeding Nathan as Criss walked in. "Daddy's home"Criss said coming into the kitchen. Nathan started bouncing in his high chair like he was on a trampline. Criss gave him a kiss than wiped his mouth. "Puree carrots nice," as he gave me a kiss. "So you ready for tonight?"Criss asked. "Yes but I'm kind of nervous about leaving Nate here with a person I don't know"I admitted. "Antonia Jessica is my assistant and a mother so don't worry about it. She's going to be a great babysitter beside it either her or Ayala and Gerard" Criss said as I chuckled. "All right why don't you finish feeding your son before you have to get going" she said getting up. As I made Criss a sandwich I watched Criss feed Nathan. "Here comes the airplane," as Criss made airplane sounds. I chuckled. "There we go now let's clean you up"Criss stated picking him up. "And when you come back your lunch will be ready"I called out. After Criss went up with Nathan the door bell rang and I jogged over to get it. I opened it and nearly fell over standing there was my grandmother and my Aunt Carol and Rosa. "Oh my god" as I gave them hugs. "It's so good to see you baby" my grandmother remarked. "Come on in"I stated. "Where is that little cutie?" my Aunt Rosa said. "You talking about me or Nathan"Criss asked coming down with him. "I swear Criss you are so funny sometime"Aunt Carol stated. "What do you expect now who wants to hold this cutie?". "Great grandmothers first" and Criss gave Nathan to her. "Please come into the kitchen I was making Criss a sandwich before he has to go back to The Luxor" I replied. We all walked in. "Please ladies first"Criss remarked as they all sat down. "So what's been going on with you two?"Aunt Rosa asked as I gave Criss his sandwich. "Nothing much but tonight you ladies are invited to my show Believe tonight"Criss stated. "Can't wait Johnny said it was wonderful"Aunt Carol said. "That show was the first time I saw the magic side of Criss"I replied. "But who's going to watch Nathan?"my grandmother asked. "My assistant Jessica" Criss replied with his mouth full. "Christopher that's not polite to talk with your mouth full"My grandmother stated. Criss wiped his mouth. "My apology"Criss replied. Then I noticed the time. "Criss you're going to be late". "Well on that note I'll see you ladies tonight"Criss said. Criss gave me a kiss and than the other ladies. As he did that my aunt Carol pinched his butt. "Aunt Carol"I stated. "Couldn't resist" as Criss blushed. "Goodbye" and he left.

After I took some quick strong breaths I went in and saw Criss just talking to Nathan. "How is he?"I asked a nurse. "He seems to be doing a little better it seems he's living up to his nick name strong one". I walked over and put my hand on Criss's shoulder. "I was wondering if you were going to come in" he remarked. "Just needed to get my strength isn't that right sweetie"I remarked touching his feet which he liked. After an hour my gandmother and Dimitra showed up so we traded places. "How's Nathan?"my grandmother inquired. "They say he's responding to the antibodics so he doesn't have my allergy to it thank god"Criss remarked. "He looks so helpless in there"Dimitra stated. "Mom he response to talking and touching so just becareful of the montioners" Criss suggested. "I see he has your nickname Antonia quello forte (Strong one in Italian). "What do you mean Wilma?"Criss inquired. "When Antonia was born she swolled meconium and her lungs were so ingested with that stuff the doctor thought she wasn''t going to survive but your grandfather determine to make sure his first granddaughter survived he kept calling you quello forte everytime he saw you. Then a week later when your grandfather and parents came to see you. You were giggling, moving your arms and legs. The nurse said that everytime they said quello forte you would look at them so they knew your brain wasn't affected either"my grandmother remarked as tears ran down my face. "I never knew that". "Well now we know we have two strong ones"Dimitra stated. "Let's just hope we can make it three mom" Criss said "Why don't you two go home and relax for a while we go see Nathan"my grandmother stated "All right "I remarked We gave them kisses good-bye and left. At the house my Aunt Carol was on the phone with my uncle. "That's terrible Carol how is he?"he asked. "He's a sick little boy. They put him in the NICU last night. I just hate to see Criss and Antonia going through this". "Just tell Tony I'm praying for her and Criss". "All right sweetie" and hung up. "Who was that?" my father asked. "Carol she wanted to tell me that Nathan is in the hospital with bacterial pnuemonia"he replied. "Poor kid that's something no parent should go through seeing their child so helpless" my father stated. "Wait a minute here are you feeling sorry for Criss and Tony?". "Johnny you know when Antonia was born she inhaled meconium I remember feeling so helpless wondering if I was going to lose her. Now my daughter is going through it with her own child maybe it's a sign from my father wanting me to be apart of my daughter's life again and see my grandson grow up"my father stated
Jan 18 11 3:28 PM
That night I woke up to find Criss wasn't there. "Christopher"I said looking around. I got up and went to the hall to see the bathroom light on. I knocked on the door. "Hold on please". The door opened and Criss came out with a bottle of Pepto Bismol. "You all right?" I asked. "Yea I think I just eat a bit too much with the food your aunts cooked us" he replied. "That's my aunts for yea I think we have left overs for a month". Criss put his hand on his stomach as it gurled. "Don't say that my stomach is all ready upset and I'm not in the mood-excuse me" and Criss ran into the bathroom. I could hear him vomiting. After Criss came out I told him he could take the bed and I'll sleep on the couch. I think he understood so I tucked Criss in, took a blanket and pillow. "Good night Criss hope you feel better" and went downstairs. Before I knew it I got woken up by Hammie licking my face. "Thanks tuna breath"I muttered. Hammie left as I got up to go to the kitchen. In the kitchen Chef Ed was scrapping some of the leftover down the disposal and some in the trash. "Good morning Antonia"he remarked. "Good morning I see Criss asked you to throw of this stuff out" I stated. "Yea I came in just as JD took him to the hospital he looked horrible"he replied. "Yea I think he was praying to the porclain god all night I'm surprise Criss didn't wake me up"I stated. "Well I should finish this up before your aunts wake up"he replied. "All right and I'll get dressed to see how my son and boyfriend are doing" I remarked chuckling. Just than a knock came to the door so I went to answer it. I opened the door and standing there was my father. "Hello Antonia"he stated.
Jan 20 11 7:24 PM
I went outside with him. "Dad what are you doing here trying to make me feel worse than when I left my son and Criss?"I asked. "Listen Antonia I'm sorry for doing that to you but I'm here waving the white flag. I heard from your uncle that your son is in the NICU with Bacterial Pneumonia I just want to be there for you" he said. "I don't know dad after everything you did to me even after my son was born how can I trust you". "You just have to Antonia and I swear I won't interfer with your plans on raising Nathanial or if or when Criss decides to marry you if I do you can throw me out of your life"he stated. "I'm going to keep you to that dad now come on in". When we came in my grandmother and my aunts were awake. "What is he doing here?" grandmom inquired. "Trying to hurt your daughter more"Aunt Rosa added. "Listen dad is here for me and my son. I want everyone to play nice now I'm going to get dress and see my son". "Where's Christopher?"Aunt Carol asked. "He's at the hospital probably being treated for dehydration for throwing up last night"I stated and went to get dress. "You just had to cook Rosa are you trying to kill someone"my father remarked. "I helped too"Aunt Carol replied. "Really maybe that's why Antonia is here and Criss is suffering from food posioning at the hospital"my father said. At the hospital Criss was in the ER with a IV bag hanging. "What is this your third bag?"JD asked. Criss with his hat over his eyes rasing four fingers. "Way to get to know Antonia's family with a moderate case of dehydration" JD replied. "At least I stopped puking"Criss stated. "Criss you had nothing left in your system you were dry heven when we got here". "I wonder if I'll still have a gag reflexs after this"Criss joked. "At least you haven't lost your sense of humor Criss"JD said.
Jan 25 11 9:25 PM
While Criss was in the ER I went upstairs to see Nathan. He was doing good they took him off the breathing machine last night but he was still a little wheezy. "At least the antibiotics are doing good"the nurse stated. "I'm happy he doesn't have his father's allergy to penicillin"I replied. "I heard he's downstairs in the ER I hope nothing bad"she said. "Just a moderate case of food poisoning"I stated. "Well we have to take this little angel to get some x-rays to check his lungs so why don't you go downstairs and see how your husband is". "All right" I remarked. As I was leaving I noticed a cross was hanging from the little bed Nathan was in. "Where did this cross come from?"I asked. "A lady came in here late last night and asked me to give it to Nathan. She said she was your aunt". "Thanks" and left. When I got to the ER my aunts were downstairs visiting Criss and apologizing for what they did. "We're so sorry Christopher that you got food posioning"Aunt Rosa remarked. "No problem things happened"Criss said smiling. "Come on guys give Criss some air all right"I stated. "We'll be outside waiting for you" and they left. "So what number bag are we on?". "Ending of-can you pass me that basin over there I'm going to blow chunks again". I gave it to him and few seconds later he was throwing up. "God when this stop"he repelied laying back down as I poured the vomit down the sink. "I see he did it again"the nurse said coming in. "And I think I pulled a stomach muscle too" Criss added rubbing his side. "I'm going to see if I can get you some companize and maybe a banana bag to get some vitamins back into your system"the nurse suggested and left. I brought a chair over and held Criss's hand. "I saw Nathan and he's off the breathing machine"I said. "So he's responding to the antibodics"Criss stated. "Yea thankfully he doesn't have your allegry"I remarked. "My mom told me she's got everyone praying for him at our church in New York"Criss replied. "Criss my dad's in Las Vegas he showed up at the house this morning". Criss sat up a little. "If he tries to break us up I'm-" but Criss layed back down. "Relax Christopher I warned him and he said he's waving the white flag but my grandmother is keeping an eye on him" I stated. A knock came to the door and it was JD. "Antonia the doctor wants to see you upstairs they have Nathan's x-ray back". "You get better Criss and when they release you I want you to go home, get into bed and get some sleep. JD make sure anything my aunts give him isn't made by them please"I ordered. "All right". I gave Criss a hug and left.

I went upstairs hoping Nathan was going to be all right. When I got there my father was there with Dimitra and my grandmother. "Good morning Dimitra I see you've met my father"I stated as she gave me a hug. "Yes I have so how's Christopher I heard him running to the bathroom again and again last night"she asked. "He's got a morderate case of food posioning but he's still blowing chunks" I replied. "I wonder how he got sick Chef Ed knows how to keep things clean"she said as we kept our mouths shut. A nurse came over and told me the doctor was ready to see me. "Honey do you want one of us to come in with you just incase?"Dimitra inquired. "Do you mind Dimitra?"I asked. "Sure" and we went in. My father sighed and sat down. "What's wrong Dennis". "I don't understand why she asked Dimitra than me"he said. "Dennis you've tried everything from trying to get her to give Nathan up for adoption to making her feel like she's going to be a bad mother. You just have to give her time to trust you again"she replied. "I guess you're right why don't we go in and see Nathanial"my father suggested and they went in. My father after he washed up walked over. "Hey there Nathan it's grandpa" as he held his little hand. "How's our little ισχυρός (strong one)"my grandmother asked. "What does that mean?"my father inquired. "It's Greek for Strong One it's Nathan's nickname and considering his parents he's living up to it"The nurse remarked. "Yea I almost thought I was going to lose my Tony but dad never let me think that way"Dennis stated. My grandmother smiled than she noticed a cross. "Dennis look at this I remember you gave this to Antonia's mother for her birthday before Antonia was born"she replied. My uncle looked at the back and it had my mother's name and her birthday engraved on it. Back at Serenity Criss did what I said and went to bed. After he took a shower and got into some clean clothes Criss got into bed but he just couldn't fall asleep so he sat in bed and watched television. When I got back it was quiet. "Good afternon Antonia" Chef Ed stated. "Hey Chef where are my aunts?". "They had to get back to New Jeresy but I think they thought it was time to go before they got someone else sick"he stated as I snickered. "Is Criss home?". "Yea he's upstairs in bed I brought him up some tea and so far I haven't heard running"he stated. I went up there and went in to see Criss asleep. I closed the door and after taking off my shoes I gentlely climbed into bed and put my arms around Criss. I closed my eyes and before I knew it I saw myself in the backyard with Criss running after Nathan. My grandmother, Criss's mom, and my dad watched as we chased after him. My father was trying not to laugh. After Criss caught Nathan he took me in his arm and told me that everything was going to be all right. When I opened my eyes I saw Criss was staring at me.

After we had dinner and relax my grandmother noticed I was somewhere else. "Antonia may I speak to you in private?" she asked. "Sure" and we went outside out of earshot of the guys. "What's the matter you look like you've got something else on your mind". My grandmother could read me like a book. I put my hand my pocket and pulled out a ring. "Criss asked me to marry him and I said yes"I replied. "Than why do you look like you're jumping off Niagra Falls with out a barrel?"she asked. "I'm nervous about how dad is going to react to this after everything he's done I get that feeling that I'm going to regret accepting Criss's proposal" as I looked at the ring. "Antonia it's going to be all right this is your life and I'll make sure your father keeps his opinions to himself even if I asked Criss for help"she remarked. "All right" and we went back. "So what were you two ladies talking about?"my father inquired. "Well it seems Criss and Antonia have something to tell us"my grandmother remarked. "So what is it?". "Criss asked me to marry him and I said yes"I said and showed them the ring. My father looked speechless as my grandmother gave Criss a kiss. "What do you think daddy?"I asked. My father got up and walked over to Criss."Welcome to the family Christopher" holding out his hand. Criss got up and shook his hand. I almost thought for a second my father was going to deck Criss. "And for my wedding gift I'm going to make you guys your wedding cake". I got up and gave my dad a hug as tears fell down my face. "Thank you daddy"I stated. "You're welcome sweetie" and gave me a kiss. The next day at The Luxor his mother, and brothers were having breakfast as Criss walked in. "Good morning" Criss said. "You look much better than yesterday Christopher"Dimitra stated. "Thanks" as he sat down next to her. "So have you had anything solid since last night?". "I had something lite and I kept it down"he replied. "Well let's good"Costa stated. "I have something to tell you guys". "Don't tell me you're buring yourself alive for the third time"JD asked. "No but thanks for the idea. I asked Antonia to marry me and she said yes"Criss stated with a big smile on his face. His mother gave him a big kiss as his brothers congraulted him. "So how did Dennis take the news?". "He welcomed me into his family and offered to make our weddning cake"Criss replied. "Where is your bride to be?". "She's packing to go home for a little while her grandmother has some stuff at her house that she's been saving for when Antonia got married"Criss stated.

After I finished packing I was a little nervous thinking my dad was playing me but my grandmother kept telling me that if he was my father was going to end being burying with Jimmy Hoffa which made me feel better. I brought my bag down as Dimitra walked in. "Hey Dimitra"I stated wondering if Criss told her than she hugged me which answered my question. "I see Christopher told you that we're getting married". "And I'm so happy I knew he would sooner or later" she replied. "How are JD and Costa handling this?"I asked. "I don't know it's hard to read them sometimes"Dimitra stated. "I just hope they don't do something that will hurt Criss or me"I hoped. "Me too"Dimitra added. "So you ready to go see Nathan-Dimitra how nice to see you"My grandmother remarked coming down the stairs. "I heard we're going to be in-laws soon" which made my grandmother chuckle. "Do you want to go with us to see Nathan?"I asked Dimitra. "Sure shall we ladies" and we left. At The Luxor Criss was working when a rap on the window made himn look up. He saw it was my father. Criss got up and opened the door."Dennis what can I do for you?"Criss asked. "Do you think we could get some lunch I'd like to talk to you"My father said. "Sure"Criss replied and locked the door. At the restaurant they sat down. "So what do you want to talk about?"Criss asked. "Well first I'd like to apologize for the way I actted towards you and Antonia. I just felt like you were one of those guys who would break my daughter's heart but after seeing everything you've done I finally realize that I was wrong about you". "Thanks I know that you're just watching out for Antonia since she's your only child. My mom would be the same way if the roles were reversed"Criss remarked.
