Luke smiled. It wasn’t the first time and he really hoped it wouldn’t be the last either but every single time was special on its own. The first time he saw and held his new book. His book, that would be in bookstores across the country from tomorrow and people would be buying it and hopefully liking it. He felt two arms circle his waist.

“Is that it?”

“Yep, it is. Looks good doesn’t it?”

“It does.. so do I finally get to read it now?” Noah teased.

Luke never let him read anything he wrote until it was actually published.

“I read you parts of it”

“Asking me what word fits better in a sentence is not the same thing as reading me parts of the story.” Noah replied “I just want to read it Luke. I don’t know why you won’t ever let me read your stuff until its published.”

“I feel weird letting you read it..”

“Weird? Why? You have thousands of fans that are counting down the days until they can finally read this and Carolyn read it and the publishers..”

“Yeah but I’m not married to any of them so it’s not that big of a deal if they don’t like it”

“Is that why you won’t let me read it? Because you think I won’t like it?”

“No.. yes.. I don’t know.. just.. forget about it ok? You can read it now.” Luke said and gave his husband a please drop it look.

“I will read it.. but you know I love your writing. Always have, always will” Noah said, taking the book from Luke’s hands and opening it. “A shout out to dad? I’m sure he’s going to love that”

Luke laughed

“Yeah who would’ve thought I’d ever call Dusty Donovan dad”

“Or the best babysitter in the world” Noah added laughingly

“Well he is! This book would’ve taken a hell of a lot longer if he hadn’t helped out with Valentina.”

Noah smiled at the thought of their daughter

“I hope she’s ok.. it’s her first time away from home without us.”

“Noah.. she’s with Faith.. and they were going to go to the zoo. I’m sure she won’t even think of us when she sees the monkeys and the elephants.”

“Yeah.. but she’s only 4 years old..” Noah replied and dug his phone out of his pocket. “I think I’m just going to give Faith a call, make sure she’s ok. I’ll be right back.”

“Ok but I’m sure she’s fine and you’re just being over protective” Luke said and gave his husband a quick kiss before he walked out the door.

He turned his attention back to the cover of his book. The guy they hired to design the cover really did do a great job. He ran his fingers over the title. “Sunset at Snyder pond”

“Mister Snyder, 5 more minutes ‘till show time” a guy who’s name Luke couldn’t remember said as he closed the door as quickly as he’d opened it.

“Great” Luke mumbled to himself “Why did I agree to do this?”

He loved writing and he loved talking about his writing.. with fans at signings or sometimes even people coming up to him in bookstores.. but going on some talk show to talk about his books and the one he was holding in particular was not something he was looking forward to.

***

“Today we have one of the most popular authors of the moment on the show to talk about his work. Welcome mister Luke Snyder”

The crowd cheered and applauded like they’d been told to do as Luke took his seat on stage.

“Thanks for having me” he politely told the cheesy host. He didn’t like the guy at all. He’d been hitting on him from the moment he’d arrived at the studio even though he knew Luke was happily married.

“Thank you again for coming. I know you usually don’t do these kind of things.. What made you change your mind?”

“My family can be very persuasive when they want to. I’m pretty sure my mum is recording this.” Luke answered laughingly.

”Yes, and I see you brought your own fanclub” Anthony, the show’s host said nodding at the front row.

“Yeah that’s my husband Noah and my agent Carolyn.”

“Oh we finally get to meet the mysterious Noah that you dedicate all your books to”

“I wouldn’t say mysterious. There was a picture of the both of us on the back of my last book and he’s at most of the signings and promo stuff I do.”

“So Noah is the stay at home dad out of the two of you?” Anthony asked and Luke didn’t like the tone in his voice at all.

“No.. he works behind the scenes at “It’s a Vamp Thing”. That’s pretty much common knowledge. His name is in the credits at the end of nearly every episode.” Luke replied and tried to make sure everyone knew how proud he was of his Noah.

“Ah yes, the vampire show that has the record for most on set romances and affairs if the rumours are to be believed.” Anthony said suggestively.

“I don’t know about that, I don’t check the rumours”

“Right, right.. So your new book is called “Sunset at Snyder Pond”. Is it autobiographic?”

“No not really. I mean Snyder pond is a real place. It’s the pond on my family’s farm. The picture on the cover is a picture of the actual place. But that’s about it.” Luke explained.

“So the rumours going round that the main characters in your book Daniel and Richard are you and your husband aren’t true?”

“No. Daniel and Richard are two people I made up.”

“Are you sure about that? Because I looked through a copy of your book earlier today and I noticed that you dedicated the it to Noah with the following message.” Anthony said and a page from Luke’s book appeared on several screens in the studio.

Dear Noah, this book is for you, just like the others. I know you are dying to read it and I hope you’ll like it and notice that it, in a way.. is a lot like our story. Thank you for always sticking by me and putting up with me. Every day I love you more.

“I said in a way. There are similarities between us and them but I can assure you it’s not autobiographic. Some of the places in the book are real but that’s it. As soon as I write an autobiography, you’ll be the first to know.”

“Alright, I’m sure it will be another bestseller when you do”

“oh I don’t know about that, my life isn’t that interesting” Luke said shyly

“Well your fans seem to disagree. We got a lot of emails asking about your daughter and asking us to put Noah on the show too.”

“Oh you did? I thought I was invited to talk about my books, not my little girl”

“These are emails from your fans, Luke. They’re interested in getting to know the man behind their favourite stories. So tell us something about your family. Is your daughter here too today?”

“No. She’s staying with my sister for a few days. She’s 4 years old, the zoo is more interesting to her than a TV studio.” Luke replied, not happy with where the conversation was going.

“And this is her right? Valentina” Anthony said and a picture of Valentina blowing out the candles on her birthday cake on her 4th birthday appeared on the screens.

The crowed aww-ed at the sight.

“Yeah, that’s her. That’s our little girl. That was at her 4th birthday party last month. But where did you get this picture?”

“Your agent provided us with some photos to show during the interview. Now this book is a lot tamer in a way than your earlier work. What’s brought on this change?”

“It wasn’t something I did on purpose, really. But there’s just more to life than porn and writing porn.”

“You have a point there. Some fans think you are writing a children’s book now that you’re a father, is that true?”

Luke shook his head.

“No I’ll leave that to the people that are actually good at that. Our little girl turned 4 last month, she’s been ours since she was about 2 weeks old and none of the books I wrote in the past 4 years are suitable for children.”

“Ok so no children’s book. Do you have anything planned for your next book yet?” Anthony asked.

“No not really. I have notebooks laying around the house and a few files on my computer that I use to put down ideas.. but nothing concrete yet.”

“Alright well we’re almost out of time now, is there anything you would like to say to your fans?”

Luke smiled, this was the kind of thing he liked.

“Just a big thank you to everyone that’s bought my books over the years.. and I hope you’ll enjoy the new one too”

***
“So remind me again why I agreed to do this show?” Luke said annoyed when he walked back into his and Noah’s hotel room a few hours later.

“Because.. it’s good for your career.. and this way we get to spend a few days in the city for our anniversary.” Noah replied and pulled his husband close. “The guy was an idiot. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t read anything but his autocue. Forget about him.”

“I’ll try. I can’t believe he kept going on about Tina and asking if the book is an autobiography. I told him it wasn’t and what does our daughter have to do with anything?!”

“You should just say no next time Carolyn wants you to do another talkshow. You’re all stressed out and it’s our last day here. We should try to enjoy the last few hours without cartoons and dolls”

“You love the cartoons and dolls and everything as much as she does.” Luke teased as he changed into something more comfortable.

“Yeah I guess I do.. you know she asked me the other day if we’d bring her back a present. Do you know what she asked for? A little brother or sister.”

“Really? what did you tell her?”

“That we’d buy her that doll she’s been talking about” Noah said laughingly.

“Oh nice tactic. No ‘Daddy will try sweetie’ or something along those lines?”

“Well.. we could try.. but were not so good at the whole baby making thing are we?”

Luke grinned, he knew exactly where this conversation was going and he was more than happy to go along with it.

“I think we just need more practise” he said and kissed Noah “I’m sure we’ll get it right sooner or later”

“I vote for later.” Noah said as he took off Luke’s shirt and gently pushed him down on the bed. “Just so we’ll have more time to practise”

***
“Home sweet home” Noah said as he opened the screendoor and stepped into the farm house kitchen. Almost nothing had changed since the day he’d walked in there for the very first time.

“Daddy!”

He looked up and saw an excited 4 year old running towards him. He knelt down and opened his arms for her.

“Hey sweetheart, did you miss us?” he said as he stood up and smiled when the little girl kissed his cheek.

“Hey don’t I get a kiss?” Luke asked his daughter teasingly.

“You were on TV!” Valentina said happily after she’d kissed her other father’s cheek.

“Yeah, that’s right, did auntie Faith let you watch?”

“She wanted to see her dads on TV when I explained why you were away for the weekend.” Faith said as she greeted her brothers “I don’t think she really understood it though.. but she was excited about seeing you two on TV.”

“Well then at least someone had fun” Noah said, still cuddling his daughter. “Luke wasn’t exactly that host’s biggest fan.”

“He kept going on about things that aren’t any of his business”

“Did you bring me a present?” Valentina said, interrupting the conversation.

“Yes we did but it’s in the car sweetie, you’ll get it at home” Luke told her but only got a pout in reply.

“She got that from you” Noah said laughingly. “Why don’t all 3 of us go get your present and go for a walk and let auntie Faith get some rest.” He said and put Valentina down who ran straight to the car.

“Noah it’s getting a bit late for her isn’t it? It’ll be dark soon.”

“I know, it’s my favourite time of day at my favourite place. Sunset at Snyder pond”

Luke laughed

“That’s the cheesiest thing you’ve said in a long time”

“Yeah and yet somehow you still love me.” Noah said and grinned.

“Yeah, yeah somehow I still do”
