Ruth heard Sydney come in she had wondered whether to hand him the envelope that had arrived today as she didn’t want him upset for his date tonight “ hi mum “ he gave his mum a kiss on the head she looked up “ so where is the date then “ “ the ivy “ Sydney went to the fridge for a drink he was about to go upstairs when he noticed the envelope addressed to him he opened it and was shocked to see it was a wedding invite from Ryan . Bastard thought and then checked off it so he put the invitation in the bin and went for a shower .
Sydney came out off the taxi he looked up at the ivy looked nice he heard from some people it was and it was booked out months in advance Sydney went inside the mitred took his name and escorted Sydney to his table where Luca was waiting the mitred whispered in his ear Luca nodded as Sydney waited . Luca got up and turned to Sydney to great him wow “ fucking hell “ Sydney whispered way to go frank he was hot he had the most piercing green eyes very smartly dressed in a suite Sydney didn’t wear a suite he had worn good trousers and a shirt Sydney noticed that Lucas hair colour had blondish streaks through it and he had the most striking features he had ever seen “ Sydney lovely to see you at last “ Luca held out his hand and they shook hands Luca smiled play it cool Syd he thought “ please have a seat I hope you don’t mind a .iittle privacy “ “ no not at all “ Sydney sat down the mitred came back over for there orders “ I’ll have my usual Edmund and the poached salmon “ Edmund nodded and looked at Sydney “ a beer please and a steak “ “ your not a wine drinker then Sydney “ Luca smiled Sydney blushed “ occasionally “ .
During their meal they chatted about all the different things he seemed easy to get on with Sydney though Luca mentioned Switzerland where he comes from he seemed sad when he mentioned his family too . “ your business is doing well “ “ yes I’ve many properties scattered around thanks to Frank and Lucy for their help Edinburgh is a beautiful city “ . “ Scotland does have good scenery and places to visit “ Luca nodded even though he had only been in Scotland a few months he had hoped to explore more . “ Frank tells me you work in a call centre “ “ yes it’s boring really kinda hate it even though I’ve been at the company 3 years made good friends there “ “ I’m sure your not boring Sydney '' Luca smiled Sydney blushed bloody hell he thought this guy is giving me the vibes good vibes he thought .
“ is there a reason you haven’t dated in a while “ Luca asked damn frank why you have to go say that Sydney shifted in his chair “ my ex decided he liked women more it’s a complicated story I’d rather forget about it “ “ I’m sorry “ oh no Sydney thought should he have said that Luca smiled there meal arrived and more drinks Sydney felt more relaxed as the night went on . Afterwards the mitred came with the bill which Luca paid much to Sydney’s annoyance “ we go Dutch the next time “ Luca looked at Sydney next time he thought “ Dutch “ “ it's a saying we go half “ .
Luca thought he would have to get used to different sayings in Scotland that he had picked up over the past few months .
“ thanks for a nice night “ Sydney said to Luca as they waited outside for his taxi “ meet soon “ Sydney smiled don’t botch it up he thought Luca touched Sydney’s face he went to kiss Sydney a soft light kiss “ you have my no “ Sydney goes into the taxi and drives off Sydney smiling . Lucas' driver opened the door for him “ where to sir “ “ home Philip “ Philip nodded. Oh he thought the date must have gone well then for them to go straight home Luca seemed happy tonight Philip thought it was good to see him in a joyous mood after his date .
Sydney got home and leaned against the door he smiled. I had a really good date. See how it goes. He ran upstairs and fell on top of the bed. He got out his phone and brought up Franks and called him .” Well how did it go “ “ Frank he’s lovely it was good meeting again “ Frank sat on the landing as he spoke to Sydney Lucy got up to see how it went . “ good I’m happy you got on you deserved to be happy Syd ” .” I know just baby steps, frankly .”

Luca walked over to Sydney and picked up one the photos “ he was a good man and yes we do look like each other all other family members do to in the genes “ “ good genes “ Sydney smiled Doris chapped the door before she came in with a pot tea “ thank you Doris “ Doris nodded then left she turned round “ dinner will be half hour “ Sydney picked up Doris’s dialect he guessed from the highlands “ Doris is from Skye she’s been my housekeeper for a long time “ “ I thought that she seems motherly towards you “ “ she’s always been like that “
“ You have an amazing view “ Sydney pointed to the window “it is and the company isn’t bad either “ Sydney blushed Luca looked at him Luca moved nearer to Sydney he leaned in and kissed his hand . The door chapped Luca sighed “ come in “ Doris and Philip entered with two trays and sat them on the table “ thank you “ Doris and Philip left Sydney opened the closh steak and chips he smiled Luca studied him for a second Sydney looked up at him “ nice “ Luca opened his he had a steak with potatoes. Sydney smiled, didn't Luca like Chips? “ You don’t like chips. “ Luca looked at him. “ I like to alternate. “ Sydney laughed. Luca sniggered at what a guy Sydney thought .
Doris stood outside the door listening to there conversations Philip came round the corner and shook his head “ Doris “ “ shh I’m trying to listen I think there laughing “ Philip also listened in “ oh I do hope this works out he seems nice “ Doris wondered Luca needed someone in his life Philip looked at Doris he held out his arm for her to take and they wandered back into the kitchen .
“ do you like rugby “ Sydney asked Luca it was his frank and Lucy’s tradition To go to a game whenever the rugby was on at Murray field “ I do try to follow football or American football “ Sydney nearly choked on his drink Luca went over to him he bent down beside Sydney “ are you ok “ “ I’m fine “ they looked at each other and smiled “ I was wondering if you would like to come with frank , Lucy and I to the rugby next weekend “ “ that would be lovely yes I’ll be there “ .
Luca reached up to Sydney they kissed “ Luca I “ “ I know no expectations “ Sydney smiled Luca touched Sydney’s face Philip chapped the door damn again Luca thought he got up and went over to his side as Philip came in . “ sorry phone call “ “ Philip could you take a message I’ll get back to them “ Philip hoovered at the door “ Luca it’s ok you can take the call “ Luca poured them another drink “ I have company besides it can wait “ .

Frank got out his flask, opened it up and took a sip Lucy went into her back and brought out plastic cups and poured some into them . “ just a wee tote to warm us up “ as they took there cups ahh Glenlivet Luca thought frank had good taste “ Glenlivet frank “ “ it is how did you guess “ “ Luca likes his whiskey “ Sydney smiled and looked at Luca “ that I do “ . Sydney noticed someone staring at them. Maybe the person knows Luca. “ Luca, do you know that person who is staring? “ Luca looks at the person Sydney mentioned. No he did not know him. “ No, don't know them. “ Luca looks at Sydney. Strange Sydney thought .
It was a good game. A friendly with a team from England, Luca enjoyed the day.

At him Frank had brought drinks back Lucy looked at Frank and smiled at Sydney. She thought they were having a moment .
Sydney went to the toilet before their meal arrived Lucy noticed Ryan arrived at the pub “ uh oh Ryan alert “ Frank looked over at the bar at Ryan he was with some friends “ it’s his bachelor party today “ strange Lucy thought she would’ve thought Frank would’ve mentioned it . “ Who is it? “ Luca asked Frank and Lucy looked at him should they mention Sydney's ex . Sydney came out of the booth as Ryan came into the toilet Sydney was surprised to see him. “ Ryan “ “ Syd “ Ryan hoovered it was awkward what do they say to each other after all this time “ how things “ Sydney asked “ fine it’s my bachelor party today “ Ryan bit his lip god this is awkward he thought but it was nice to see Syd . “ Syd I “ “ I better get back to the others “ “ ok it was nice to see you “ Sydney nodded and went out and back to the others it felt strange to see Ryan after 8 months Luca touched Sydney’s knee Sydney looked at him “ ok “ Luca asked Sydney nodded “ it's all in the past “
