Eight months ago, Luca ended his relationship with Patrick, his ex-boyfriend, because of a broken promise. Now, with twins on the way, he has a whole different life ahead of him. Luca is loving his life but feels incomplete. What happens when a handsome stranger enters his world of art and love?


Luca sat in a soft chair, supporting himself. Thomas took a seat next to him. A middle-aged woman sat beside Luca, holding a folder. Patrick sat on the other side of the room with a blonde man in his thirties. Ken sat at his desk, facing both parties.

”Im here to discuss the visitation rights of Mr. Hodges unborn children, ” Mrs. Donaldson said.

”And what are these particulars? ” Patrick asked, resisting the urge to yell.

”The conditions are that visits will be supervised, ” she said, ”and that they will be every other weekend and on Christmas. ”

”For how long? ” Patricks lawyer asked.

”Two hours each time for now, ” Luca said.

”But thats not enough time, ” Patrick objected.

”Be thankful that hes letting you see them in the first place, ” Mr. Brooks said.

After the meeting, Luca rose from his chair with Thomas help.

”Are you ready to meet your client? ” he inquired.

”Yeah, ” Luca said, nodding his head. ”I just need to get my drawing supplies, ” he explained.

”OK, ” Thomas said, with a small smile on his face. Luca felt eyes on him but ignored them as he walked away. The door opened as Luca entered the drawing room and set everything up. A man in his sixties arrived with a young child, probably two or three years old.

”Mr. Carlton, thank you for coming, ” Luca said, shaking his hand. He said, ”My granddaughter, Alicia, requested a personalized drawing for her birthday after seeing your sketches online. ”

”And what age are you? ” Luca inquired.

”Twee, ” she said as she held up three fingers.

”Well, sit on that chair over there and well get started, ” Luca said.

Luca sat in his chair with a pillow, while Alicia sat in the chair behind her with her favorite teddy bear. Luca sat in the chair with his pencils and sketchbook.

”Does Teddy have a name? ” he inquired, smiling. The little girl shook her head and hugged her toy.

”Well, Teddy needs a name, ” Luca pointed out. ”What about Tommy? ” he inquired. ”Or Tiffany, if Teddy is a girl, ” Luca suggested. The name made Alicia laugh. It took Luca two hours to draw Alicia because she kept squirming around.

With some coaxing, Luca got the three-year-old to stay still. When he was done, Luca got up and packed up his supplies.

”Here, ” Luca said, handing Alicia the drawing. ”I even added Teddys name, ” he said, showing her the words under the bear in the photo. She giggled with delight. Alicia stepped up to hug Luca but instantly stopped. She looked down at his belly and frowned.

”Im not going to break, ” Luca said as he hugged her. Alicia backed away and smiled.

”I think you made her day, ” the grandfather said.

”Im glad I gave her a cool present, ” he said.

”Heres a tip, ” he said. ”Ill transfer the payment once we get home, ” Mr. Carlton said.

”Thank you, ” Luca said. ”And, if you know anyone who needs a photo done, just send them here, ”
