Mariana looked around her studio and sighed, her eyes moved back to Marco's painting she had just completed.
Those brown - gold eyes that held her world, she really missed him.
It had been long since she had last seen him and he was in coma by then.
She had remained in contact with Gaetano all this time, he kept informing her of his well being.
Marco had spent four months in coma and woke up three months ago, even though he kept asking for her she didn't go.
