Disclaimer: If I knew Leland Chapman, I would have led an intervention by now.

Author's Note: OFC's looks and age left ambiguous on purpose. This is as close to reader-insert as I get.

Author's Note II: I'm not going to lie... I'm not a big fan of the meet and greet plot device but a request is a request. I'm sorry if this story is not everyone's cup of tea.

 

Leland was tired and wanted nothing more than to go home. He was in the ballroom of the Ritz-Carlton, sitting at a long table beside Duane Lee and Baby Lyssa and signing autographs for fans of the show. They had been there for hours and his hand was starting to cramp. He was also pretty sure that if he smiled anymore his face was going to stick in the expression and he'd be Hawaii's very own Joker.

“Hi,” a small, sweet voice broke him out of his thoughts.

Leland looked up to find a very pretty woman who was accompanied by two boys; one a teenager and the other a toddler. They were, thankfully, the last people in the line of fans.

“Aloha.” This time his smile was genuine. “What's your name?”

“Siera Hardy.” The woman blushed.

“What about you?” He turned to address the teenager.

“Jimmy,” the teen answered politely. “And that's my brother, Jake.” He nodded at the toddler.

“Nice to meet everyone,” Leland said as he signed the DVD box set that Siera handed him. When he noticed that she wasn't wearing a wedding ring, his grin grew wider... and probably a little more flirtatious. “Is this your first time in Hawaii?”

That one question lead to a conversation that lasted over half an hour. At one point, Jimmy had gotten bored and taken Jake out to the playground that could be seen out of the ballroom windows.

“It's after five,” Siera said regretfully as she looked down at the time on her phone. “I should really be getting the boys some dinner.”

Leland kissed her cheek before she departed and almost kicked himself when he realized that he hadn't asked for her phone number. At least he knew her last name. Looked like he was going to have to make a stop at the front desk before he went home.

SIERA'S ROOM

Siera awoke the next morning much earlier than she wanted to because someone was knocking on the door.

Dragging herself out of bed, she grumbled to herself. Even little Jake had yet to stir. Pulling open the door, she was shocked to discover a delivery man, holding a vase of red roses.

After accepting the vase, she closed the door and set them down on the table next to the window so she could look for a card. When she finally found it and opened it, she had to put a hand over her mouth so she didn't squeal and wake up the boys.

My Siera,

I enjoyed meeting you yesterday, beautiful. I was hoping that you and your boys might want to join me and mine for a day at the beach?

Hoping to hear from you soon,

Leland

Below his name, he had left his phone number.
