    Summary

    She’s survived a marriage, beginning to end, and squelched her way up the corporate compost pile, past dubious ethics and angry men, as far up as she ever thought she’d go. She might not have considered vying for more, she can admit, without the little shit who’s currently trying to fry her phone with a firestorm of texts.

    Gerri’s on a date. Roman’s at the office. At least they’ve got their phones.

    Summary

    “Hell yeah he is,” Roman says. “He’s about to splash his cum all over this great white nation of ours. And I’m the invisible hand behind the handjob. Look, you’d love him if you met him.” That’s probably not true. Gerri doesn’t love anyone. Whatever.

    Summary

    “I’m just gonna—” he starts, at the same time that Gerri says “Roman, do you genuinely think you would be less fucked up if you were a girl?”

    He says: “Uh.”

    It’s that fucking tone of voice, like, I knew it would be bad, but I didn’t know it would be this bad. Like someone who just saw a cockroach, sighing and rolling up their sleeves to go looking for a thousand more cockroaches. It hits him right in the dick, like a Pavlovian reaction, only if Pavlov fucked the dogs.

    ---

    Gerri, Roman, increasingly convoluted hypotheticals, bad ideas for stress relief, etc.

    Summary

    “Do you think there’s something up with Gerri and Roman?

    Tom joins him, taking in the tableau. “What, like are they fucking?

    “No!” The memory of Gerri’s smile at Roman’s joke comes back, tinted with a new light. “Maybe?

    Or: Tom and Greg aren't friends anymore, but that doesn't mean they can't have an alliance, right? Right.
