Erik is a medieval painter very skilled both as a painter than as lover. But lately he performs more his lover's skill than the painter's one and the king is not happy. The king asks the court's mage to punish Erik and the mage takes a bit too much pleasure in doing so, banishing Erik to an endless life without any mortal pleasure, food and sex, and leaving him only the pleasure of art. Every year Erik has only a night with a chosen lover to refill his soul, and the night should be enough for him for all the year.

In modern time Jason is eager to now the famous Erik the painter, a man who is believed to be the last of a generations of painters in work since the Middle Ages. When innocent and virgin Jason arrives to the gothic manor where Erik lives, he discovers that the man is a very handsome guy and he is swept away in a night of passion that forces Jason to let go every boundaries. But the morning after Jason will be one more paint in the personal gallery of Erik.

The starting point of the story is nice, but it would be interesting to have something more on Erik's life after the damnation: instead there is an abrupt rush to the end of the story; maybe not so surprising since the book is only 37 pages long. An orgy at the beginning, a long sex scene in the middle, and a fast romp en plain air at the end, and the book is finished. But all in all, for a short story, at least it's original.
