God is furious. He has run out of patience with humans and decided that our time is over. We’ve had our chance and it’s back to the drawing board.
Mo, and Jay, best friends who’ve screwed up in the past, beg him for one more chance to get the humans back on track.

They have seven days to save us

Nick’s stomach lurched as Stewart glared across the table at him. His apology forming in his vocal cords, Nick pushed it back and listened to the wee part of himself that had won him his department in the first place.
“I’m talking to you, Stewart. Back off.”
Stewart’s eyebrows creased in the centre; his scowl brought ice to Nick’s heart. Fuck. Wrong choice.
Standing, Stewart’s eyes widened in fury. His eyes tore the air between them, smoke shooting through his nostrils.
“You remember who I am and remember who the fuck you are.” Stewart stabbed at Nick’s chest, his strong finger digging deep into the flesh. “You’re a cog, son. A bureaucrat. By fuck, you’re practically my damned secretary. You should be under this table with your overactive lips on my cock. It’s about all you’re good for.”
Shocked into silence, Nick assessed his options for a moment as Stewart glared over the table at him. Relaxing his shoulders, Nick decided to push his luck.
“Yes, well you’d know better than I the qualities in possession of a skilled oralist.” A beat passed. Stewart’s expression melted.
“Aye, you’re right there, Nick.” He laughed, all anger gone.
Stewart nodded over at the waiter who was making his way to the table. “Might make that one give me a blowy just now.” Nick peered across the room, assessing the man. “He’s a bit lardy for your tastes, is he not?” Stewart shrugged.
“Aye, but he’s a good height. Big laddies like that have always a grand big boaby on them. Who gives a fuck if he’s carrying a bit ay timber round the waist?”
Exasperated, Nick shook his head. Stewart had been having a gay phase for years now, which was mostly fine, and a marked improvement on his usual pish, but recently he’d been a bit too obsessed with girth and length. Pushing ma boundaries, son, he’d said. Nick reckoned that acting the size queen was beneath his boss, but figured that his temporary obsession with big dicks was an improvement from the heroin phase Stewart had thrown himself into some years earlier. The boss got Catholic as fuck on the smack; he was happier, more balanced on the cock.
