A few hours had passed since the crash and Criss had washed up. The gash wasn't as big as Criss thought considering the blood that washed away in the river. When he got back Criss found a first aid box and with a little help from a broken window Criss put a couple of butterfly strips on the cut. After he finished cleaning himself up Criss went to get his phone to see if he could call for help but unfortunely his phone was just a piece of trash. Dam it he thought. Then nature started to call so Criss found a bush to do his business. He came back as about of dizziness hit him. I must have a concussion or something as he sat down under the broken plane wing. After the dizziness passed Criss wondered if he'd ever be found or see his son or Antonia again. Back in New Jersey I was trying to keep myself busy so I wouldn't worry about Criss and his plane crash so I decided to work at the bakery while Dimitra watched Nathan for me. At Dimitra's Nathan was still trying to walk but just could get it. "Don't worry Nathan you'll be walking in no time"she remarked picking him up. "Anyone home" a voice called out. Dimitra turned around as Costa came in."Costa please tell me you've heard something about Christopher?" she asked. He shook his head. "Nothing yet from JD"Costa remarked as Dimitra sat on the couch after putting Nathan in his playpin. "This is so hard not knowing where Christopher is" she said. "I know it's driving me crazy too not knowing if Criss is with dad or not" Costa added. "Antonia is trying to keep her mind off of Criss's disappearance so she's working at her father's bakery"Dimitra stated. At the bakery my father came down looking for me. "Rosa where's Antonia?" he asked. She shrugged her shoulders as my dad went to the back. When he got to the back Johnny was working on some breads. "Johnny have you seen Antonia?"my father asked. "She was just here a second ago try outside near where we park the cars it's always been her hiding spot" he replied. My father went outside and heard me crying. He followed the sound untill he found me. "You all right sweetie?"he asked kneeling infront of me. "I came out here to check my messages and there was one from Criss. Telling me that he forgot to grab his necklace from me. Dad what if this is the last time I ever hear from him and he's with Grandpa and his father up in heaven" as tears fell down my face again. "Oh Antonia you have to stop thinking that way Criss is going to be all right and they'll find him alive with probably some cuts and bruises" he assured me. "I keep having the same dream of going to Criss's funeral I'm so scared dad". My father got off his knees and gave me a hug as I cried in his arms. "Antonia I know you're scared everyone is but you can't let it control you. Now I want you to gather yourself and go to Dimitra's and be with your son. If we get a call here saying they found Criss you'll be the first on the list all right". "Thanks dad" as I gave him a kiss. My father went back in as my grandmother came in. "Where's Antonia?" she asked. "I sent her home she's in no shape to work with Criss missing and presumed dead it's just killing her" Dennis replied. "I'm glad that you're helping her through this terrible time Dennis". "It reminds me so much of what happened on 9/11 not knowing if dad was alive or dead untill you get that call saying they found his body. I just hope they find Criss so Antonia doesn't lose it mentally"Dennis remarked. "I'm going to church to say a pray for Criss" and my grandmother left.

Inside the plane everyone was on pins and needles but for me my mind kept bringing me back to the vision of Criss and I were talking about of Nathan walking on the grass of Serenity while the family including my father and Criss's family watching as Criss chased after Nathan. When we landed an officer was waiting for us with a another car. We got off one by one and the officer walked over. "You must be the Sarantakos's " shaking our hands. "How's our brother?"JD inquired as I held onto Dimitra's hand. "He's good considering what the plane looked like. Criss did have some internal bleeding but he survived with just having his spleen removed" the officer remarked. "Do you know what caused the crash?" Costa inquired. "From what your brother said is that the pilot had a fatally heart attack. Why don't we get into the car and I'll take you to Christopher". We all got in and left. At the hospital Criss was in bed asleep. In his dream he was marrying me and he could see Nathan in a little texudo with JD holding him with all the ushers. He saw his mother smiling with tears coming down his face. My father with the biggest smile on his face. "Christopher"a voice said. He opened his eyes and saw me. "Antonia"he replied. "Thank god you're all right Christopher I almost thought I was going to have raise Nathan on my own" touching his face. "While we were going down you were the last thing on my mind seeing you playing with Nathan in the back yard of Serenity" as tears fell down his face. I wiped his face and gave him a kiss. "Your mom and brothers are outside waiting I won the coin toss to go in first". Criss chuckled. "I love you Antonia"he stated as I went to the door. "I know Christopher now get better so we can get married"I replied and left.

A few weeks went by and Criss was playing with Nathan in the back yard before he left for work. "Christopher come on you're going to be late for work" I called out. "Coming dear"Criss said coming in with Nathan. When he came in Criss gave me a kiss. "Ok buddy I'm going to put you in your high chair so you can have some breakfast" Criss stated. Nathan banged his fists on the tray which was his way of saying: GET ME OUT OF THIS THING. "Don't be so grumpy Nathan it's just untill you have breakfast than you can out" Nathan then put his thumb against his forehead and wiggled his fingers. "Antonia what is he saying?"Criss asked as he made the sign again. "He's saying dad Christopher". Then he put his thumb against his chin while wiggling his fingers. "And that?". "Mother" I stated. Criss smiled as he did the same sign again and again. "So he's saying mom and dad". "Or parents" I replied. Criss replied by signing good which I did too. Nathan smiled as Criss gave him a kiss on the forehead.When Criss got to The Luxor JD was on the phone. "Yes mom everything is fine here. Nathan is doing great he's picking up the sign language like nothing else. I love you too bye mom" and hung up as Criss walked in. "You just miss mom Criss". Criss put his index finger up and his right one just twirled the top of it. "Criss speak I don't know sign language yet". "Sorry I'm just practicing I said when" Criss replied. "A few minutes ago and she's wondering if you and Antonia are ready for the wedding in two months". "Yes we were and a few weeks we're going down to visit Antonia's father to make plans for our wedding cake" Criss replied. The rest of the crew came in and the day began.

Before anyone knew the wedding day was two days away. Criss put up a bit of my family up at The Luxor while my grandmother and father stayed with us. At the house my grandmother and father were outside while Criss was chasing Nathan around. I came outside and realized that dream I kept having was coming true. After Criss caught Nathan my father walked over. "So you guys ready for the wedding?" he asked. "Yea it seems like we were planning it and now it's the day after tomorrow"Criss stated giving Nathan to my father. "Now I heard you have an episode to film tomorrow". "Yes Criss is trying to get into the guiness book of world records by disappearing a hundred people"I said. "That's great I can't wait to see it tomorrow"my grandmother remarked. As I got up the world started to spin but Criss stead me before I fell. "You all right Antonia?"he asked. "Yea just got up too fast excuse me" and went inside as Dimitra and my grandmother followed. I went into the kitchen to get some water as they came in. "Antonia are you sure you're all right?". "Yes I just got a little dizzy that's all Dimitra". "Antonia Marsela Valestro you're hiding something"my grandmother replied. I turned around. "All right but keep your mouths shut I found out a month ago I'm pregnant".My grandmother and Dimitra looked ready to jump up and down. "Oh sweetie when are you going to tell Christopher?". "Tomorrow I have it all set and there's another surprise which I'm not telling you I want to surprise everyone" she remarked. "All right sweetie I can't believe Nathan is going to be a big brother". My grandmother looked ready to do a jig or something as they left the kitchen. Outside my father was talking to Criss when my mother and grandmother came out. "Is Antonia all right?"my father asked. "She's fine Dennis she just has the jitters about the wedding"Dimitra said sitting down. "All right I just don't want her to get cold feet"Criss replied. "Believe me Christopher she won't get cold feet"my grandmother replied.

As the time for the wedding got closer I was getting jumpy. "Don't worry Antonia everything will be all right"my father stated. "I'm just jumpy or the twins are" as I chuckled. The door opened and Lynn walked in with the phone. "Antonia it's Criss". I took the phone. "I swear if you're pulling out-". "No I'm going to be late JD left his shoes at his house and my best man left the rings in his hotel room at The Luxor". "Hey just be thankful I remembered it now instead of at the altar" I heard in the background. "If you want to Lynn can drive back to the house to get the shoes to save you some time"I suggested. "No we're almost there I'll be there I swear" and hung up. "What's up if he's pulling out he's going to buried next to Jimmy Hofa"my father stated. "Cool the jets dad JD forgot his shoes and his best man left the rings in his hotel room"I replied. "All right" and my fatherwent to tell the people about the delay. Outside George was on the phone with JD. "You're on your way to the ER does Antonia know all right just make it fast" and hung up. When George turned around he saw my father. "Mr Valestro you spooked me" he aid. "George what's going on who's heading to the ER". "It's nothing sir". "George Antonia's happiness is number one today and if Criss is playing games because he's having second thought he's going to wish he never got involved with my family".Before George could say a word Dimitra walked over. "Where's Christopher the wedding starts in an hour". "It seems someone in the groom's party is heading towards the ER while they lied to my daughter. George here knows why now spill it before I explode with anger"my father remarked. "Come on George what's with the misdirection" Dimitra inquired as Lynn came over. "All right when the limo pulled up Criss bent down to pick up the ring he dropped but the limo driver wasn't paying attention and hit Criss with the door". "Why not tell my daughter the truth?". "JD and Costa didn't want to get Antonia upset so they decided to pull some misdirection" George replied. "Oh my godis Criss all right?"Lynn asked. "They think he may of broken his nose"he replied. "Well let's just tell the people the lie and we don't tell Antonia the truth but when Criss gets here I want to talk to him". "I'll join you with that conversion"Dimitra added.
Apr 26 11 6:23 PM
As I waited for Criss I wondered if I was getting misdirected. A knock came to the door and Lynn opened it and it was my dad telling me Criss was here and just need two minutes to get into position. I nodded as he closed the door. Downstairs on the other hand my grandmother and Dimitra were using some foundation powder to cover up some bruising around his eyes and nose. "Hold still Christopher"his mother stated. "And I thought my make-up artist for Believe was a pain in the butt"he muttered "There we go not bad maybe I should of become a makeup artist" my grandmother stated. "Let's get this wedding going before everyone leaves". Criss got into position and my father went to get me. As Criss stood there he was praying that nothing else would go wrong. I came down and Criss couldn't stop staring at me as my father walked me down. I got up and Criss took my hands. "You look like an angel"he stated. I blushed. The wedding was going great untill I saw a drips of blood coming from Criss's nose. "Criss there's blood coming out of your nose"I whispered. Criss put his hand to his nose and he saw it was dripping blood."Excuse me for a second. This is the worest time to get a nose bleed"Criss apologized. JD took him to the side. "Talk about great timing"JD said. "I don't care if I have to stick a tampon up my nose just stop it"Criss stated. "Let's go to the bathroom we may have to do that". I could tell Criss felt like he was ruining the day but sometime things happened. A few minutes later Criss came out with the bottom of his nose taped up like you would if you broke your nose. "Afterwards we're going to the hospital"I whispered as we finished. Criss and I were about to kiss when I started to feel sick. Not now please I uttered than it passed and we kissed. After the cermony everyone was talking as I pulled Criss to the side. "I'm so sorry about what happened just now I'm so embrassed". "Criss I know you broke or banged your nose"I stated. I took a napkin and wiped Criss's face to see the bruises. "How?". "I got a kneen eye for stuff now is your nose broking or badly bruised". "Broking I have to go back to have it set"Criss replied disappointed. "Criss have JD take you back to the hospital to get your nose set before you end up having a nose job later in life"I said. Criss smiled as my father came in. "Come on you guys you've got guest waiting for you". "Dad Criss has to go back to the hospital to get his nose set or it's going to heal wrong and end up with nose problems". "I'm sorry to ruin this"Criss apologized. "No problem come on I'll drive you myself" and they left.

As the months went on Criss was enjoying the fact that he's becoming a father of twins but I was nervous. During a lunch break Criss went over to FAO Schwartz to look around at the baby stuff. After he finished there he came back to see JD with Nathan. "What's Nathan doing here?". "Lynn brought him down because Antonia is in the hospital with high blood pressure"JD remarked. Criss a sense of panic running through him. "Before you go nuts go to your wife and I'll keep this little kid with me". Criss gave his son a kiss and left like a bullet shot out of a gun. At the hospital I was sitting in bed with a pressure montioner attached to my arm taking my blood pressure every hour. I was about to call JD when my phone rang and saw it was Criss. "Criss thank god JD found you". "Are you all right are the twins coming?"he asked. "No but if my blood pressure goes up any higher they may so hurry up"I stated. "I'm coming" and hung up. When Criss came in the doctor was just about to take my pressure. Criss walked to me and hugged me than took my hand as he sat down."Just to fill you in if Antonia's blood pressure has gone up we're going to have to deliver those twins"the doctor told Criss. "I understand" Criss replied. He took my pressure than I saw a smile on his face. "Your pressure went down a little if it keeps going down those twins may not be born tonight"the doctor replied. "Thanks doc" Criss remarked as tears started to fall down my face. The doctor left and Criss gave me a kiss on the cheek. "Thank the man upstairs,"I muttered. Criss wiped the tears from my face. "Criss I'm nervous what if the kids are born early?". "Don't worry about that these kids won't be born for another two months". He put his hand on my belly than smiled. I closed my eyes and fell asleep as Criss got up. Back at The Luxor JD was getting ready to leave when the phone rang. "Yea Criss how's Antonia?". "So far so good do me a favor tonight keep Nathan with you. I'm going to stay here to keep Antonia calm or just incase the twins have to come"Criss asked. "Sure and don't worry". "Thanks" and hung up.

The next day in New Jersey my father and my uncle were working on a cake. "So how's Antonia doing?". "So far so good from Dimitra she say that Antonia is doing great trying to stay off her feet but with a one year old and the husband working it's hard"he replied. Then my grandmother came in looking worried. "Mom what's wrong?"my father asked. "I just got a call from Lynn you know JD's wife she informed me that last night they kept Nathan overnight because Antonia is in the hospital for high blood pressure, but Criss stayed with her just in case so I'm going to go down there to help out any way I can"she remarked. "I think that's good mom just keep us informed all right". She gave them a thumbs up and left. "Poor Tony that's scary think to happen because it could lead to preeclampsia than they're going to have nochoice but to deliver the twins"my uncle stated. "I know that's what scares me considering what they're going through with Nathan"my father replied. At the hospital when I woke up I saw Criss asleep in a chair next to the window. He looked cute. The door opened and the nurse came in. "How you feeling?"she asked. "Good the headache's gone"I replied. "Well your blood pressure has stablized but he's going to put you on strict bed rest untill those twins come"she remarked and left. When she closed the door Criss woke up. "Hey sleepyhead how did you sleep?"I asked as Criss got up. "Not bad what did the nurse say?". "Good news my blood pressure has stablized bad news he's going to put me on strict bed rest untill the twins come. Criss how are we going to do this considering you're working and there's going to be nobody to look after Nathan since he's running around like a speed demon". Criss rubbed my leg. "We'll figure it maybe I'll see if Lynn can watch him some days and I can take some time off from Believe to watch him at night"Criss suggested. "Criss your show is on a hot streak you can't shut it down on certain nights you could burn out so to speak"I replied. "Don't worry about me worry about those babies and keeping your blood pressure down,"he said and gave me a kiss. "Now I'm going to go to The Luxor and talk to Felix about maybe cutting some of the late night shows for a while". "Just go brush your teeth and change yourclothes first"I suggested as Criss snickered. As Criss was opening the door to Serenity a taxi pulled up. The door opened and Criss's mom and my grandmother got out. "Mom Wilma what are you guys doing here" giving them hugs and kisses. "Lynn called and informed me about my granddaughter so me and your mother decided to come down to help you with Nathan so Antonia can keep those twins inside". "I love you guys so much and reminds me to send flowers to Lynn for this"Criss remarked. "Well why don't you grab our stuffs and bring them in and than you can drop us off at the hospital to see Antonia?"Dimitra suggested. Criss smiled and went to get their luggage.

THANKS At the hospital I was a little nervous if Felix would let Criss cut some of his shows. Considering Criss is bringing in more people to The Luxor than Carrot Top probably. Maybe I should call my grandmother to help me I thought than dropped it. My grandmother just retired from the bakery a few days ago I can't do that to her she should be going on cruises or enjoying her retirement considering she's been working there since I was born. The door opened and Criss walked in. "Christopher what are you doing back?" givin g him a kiss. "I had a surprise at my house and it's going to help us with the problem of you being on strict bedrest and watching after Nathan untill the twins are born"he said. "Criss don't tell me you called your mother that's asking too much of her considering she has to put up with some of the escapes you've done" as Criss rolled his eyes. "I swear you have to got to stop hanging around JD and Costa"he said as I snickered. "Maybe we should let your brothers help with Nathan"I suggested. "Let's not go that far neither of them are ready to deal with a kid like Nathan" as we chuckled. "All right enough of the jokes come on it"Criss called out and the door opened as my grandmother and Dimitra walked in."Grandma Dimitra how did you find out" as they gave me a hug. "Lynn ratted us out but I would say in a good way"Criss remarked. "Now don't worry sweetie about us or your son. You just take care of you and those twins that are in you"my grandmother stated. "I'm surprise you didn't bring dad with you"I said. "We want to keep those babies in not get them out" Dimitra remarked as Criss held in a laugh. "I'll let you ladies talk" and Criss started to leave but Dimitra closed the door. "Where are you going Christopher?". "I have to get to Believe mom". "Nice try but it's Sunday Criss don't think we're going to do all the work while you hide behind your work tonight and tomorrow untill these twins are born you're going to help out with Nathan"My grandmother said. "But-". "No buts Christopher there will be no clubs or hanging out with your friend now why don't you get your son from JD before Lynn ends up adopting him"Dimitra replied. "All right" and he left. "And I thought you only used that tome on dad"I stated. " I could of used you when they hit adolescent Wilma"Dimitra remarked as we all chuckled.
May 2 11 3:32 PM
A month had past and I was on bed rest while my grandmother and Criss's mom helped out with help from Criss of course. At The Luxor Criss was getting ready for Believe when he started to get a sicken feeling. JD came in and saw Criss. "You all right?"he asked. "Yea I guess I'm just a little nervous about Antonia and how close she came on delivering the twins". "And I can tell you still are why don't you snick out the back and I'll tell the the crowd that the twins maybe coming"JD suggested. Criss took out his phone and called the house. At the house I was in bed watching television with Nathan when the phone rang. "Hello". "Antonia how are you?"he asked. "Good I'm watching television with Nathan. My grandmother is asleep and your mom is in the pool swimming". A knock came to the door and saw it was Dimitra. "I thought I'd put Nathan to bed for you"she said. "I got Criss on the phone I think he's nervous"I whispered as I gave the phone to Dimitra. "Christopher don't worry everything is fine here just do your show and I'll see you in the morning". "All right mom thank you again for helping us out and tell Wilma the same thing"he stated. "I will" and gave the phone back to me as she took Nathan."Have a great night and I'll see you in the morning"I stated. "Allright and if the twins decide to come just give JD a call and he'll pull me off stage"he said. "I will" and hung up. The next morning I woke up with Criss next to me with his hands on my stomach. I smiled as I pulled his hands away and got up. I went downstairs to get something to drink when I saw a note on the table. Took Nathan out for the day call if you us. I smiled but as I went back upstairs I got a sharp pain. "CHRISTOPHER!!!"I screamed. I tried to go up the stairs but the pain got worse so I slide down as water fell down the stairs. "CHRISTOPHER HELP!!!". Criss stired and saw I wasn't there. "Antonia"he said. "CHRISTOPHER I NEED YOU!!!"I yelled as loud as I could. Criss grabbed his shirt and ran to the stairs where he saw me. "Get the phone and call for an amblunce the twins are coming fast!!". Criss went back into the room and grabbed the phone. 911: THIS IS 911 HOW MAY I HELP YOUCRISS: YES I NEED AN AMBLUNCE TO **** ***** RIGHT AWAY MY WIFE IS IN LABOR WITH TWINS911: ALL RIGHT SIR WE'LL GET THERE AS FAST AS WE CAN"CHRISTOPHER I NEED YOU". Criss hung up on 911 and ran out and down the stairs. "I need to push". Criss went blank he didn't know what to do he wasn't a doctor and he's never delivered a baby before. Criss was started to feel the same way he felt when Nathan was coming and I could tell. "Christopher don't you pass out on me I need you to help me" I stated. I watched as Criss passed out and fell down the stairs. You have got to be kidding me as I was on the stairs while my husband was on the floor knocked out like a boxer. The sliding dooropened and my mother came in. "Mom"I stated. "Just relax Antonia let me check Criss. She propped Criss up who was out like a light. "Well he's going to be no help" as my mother came up the stairs. My mother saw one of the twins was crowning. "All right Antonia I need you to push hard". I pushed as hard as I could. "Hold on sweetie we got a cord wrapped". She took out a switch blade and cut the cord. The baby came out crying its lung out. "It's a girl sweetie". My mom grabbed a towel that was outside and wrapped the baby in it. "She beautiful mommy" as tears fell down my face. "Can you get up so your next kid isn't born on the stairs?". I tried but I couldn't."Oh god I think number two wants to join the party". My mom took the first baby and laid her on the ground. "All right sweetie you got to push hard". "Can't too tired"I said. "Honey look at me you can do it now push" she called out like a drill sergent. I could hear an amblunce coming as I pushed. When Dimitra and my grandmother got back they saw the amblunce and Criss sitting with an ice pack on his head. "Christopher what happened?" Dimitra asked. "Antonia had the twins and I passed out again hitting my head"he replied. "But who delivered the babies". The door opened as the paramedics came out and my mother too drying her hands.. "Nataliee"my grandmother said in shock. "Wilma oh my god" giving her a hug. "Mom meet Natilee Antonia's mother"Criss stated. "You delivered the twins?". "Yup the twins are fine and so is Antonia. How are you Criss". "With a slight case of embrassement and a headache I'm fine"he replied with a smirk on his face. "I'm going to go in and see Antonia"my grandmother remarked as Dimitra got Nathan out of the car. My mother smiled as Dimitra brought Nathan out.

The next day while I was asleep Criss was on the phone with JD. "So they were delivered at home nice Criss" JD stated. "Do yo really think I planned to have a home birth. I guess the girls wanted out in the worest way" he remarked. "I heard you passed out again". "Don't remind me my head still hurts" Criss replied rubbing his head. "Well give my love to Antonia and I'll come over later to see the girls"he stated and hung up as my mother came down. "Verida is asleep and Zoey is changed". "Natilee can I speak with you for a minute?" Criss asked. They went outside. "What were you doing here yesterday Antonia told me you just came through the side door like the Phantom". "I came to see Antonia I hadn't seen her since that day and I missed your weddning-". "Antonia wanted you there but she didn't know where you were. Natilee if you're living on the street why don't you live here and help us with the twins and Nathan"Criss suggested. "It's a nice offer Criss bt I don't know"."Natilee I want you to stay here not only for your grand children but for Antonia. I want her to have the same relantionship I have with my mom. Please Natilee"Criss asked. "Let me think about Christopher". When they came in Dimitra walked in. "Where's Antonia and the twins?". "Zoey is in her playpin while her sister is sleeping like her mom"Criss replied. "I guess the twins were up half the night". "Most of it was for midnight snacks"Criss said as my mother playfully slapped him. "Very nice Christopher and why aren't you at work?" his mother inquired. "I took the day off to be with Antonia and the kids"Criss stated. "Where's Nathan I got him some sherbet for after dinner" putting it away. "Wilma took him to his speech therpy appointment they should be back soon"Natliee said. "Well I'm going to put on my bathing suit and go for a swim"Dimitra said and started to walk up the stairs when one of the babies started to cry. "Sound like Zoey excuse me ladies" and Criss went upstairs. When he got there I was in the room feeding her. "You are fast"Criss stated checking on Verida. "She woke me up like last night how's our other girl". "Sleeping your mother put her down a few minutes ago and I asked her to move in here" Criss replied sitting next to me. "Why Christopher?"I asked. "Two reasons: One to get to know her grandchildren and two to get ot know her daughter too" he replied smiling. I gave Criss a hug as Zoey burped. "Takes after her father"I said as Criss chuckled.
