It’s a day like any other. A cafe bustles with activity; the perfect environment for an impassioned artist to find inspiration. And like so many days before, the girl of his dreams is only a few tables away. However, on this day, our artist finds the fortitude to turn the dream into reality… but the outcome is not at all what he expects. “Be careful what you set your heart on, for it will surely be yours.”
