Simona resumed posing and I had only taken a few photos when the stranger said,
"It's ready. You can keep my sketch if you like, or give it to your model. Thank you for your time"
I was really amazed by his beautiful drawing and the speed of light at with it was made.
"It's beautiful. How much do you want for it?"
"There is no charge at all"
"May I insist?"
"The price of a pint will be fine"
I gave the stranger a fiver and some coins.
"Blessings to both of you. It has been my privilege and honour"
I looked at Simona, then looked around. The stranger had disappeared in the dark. Gone up in smoke.
