GO drabble: Urgent Business [War, Famine, Pollution, Death, general]
Title: Urgent Business Author: celandineb Fandom: Good Omens Characters: War, Famine, Pollution, Death Rating: general Summary: Death is late. Note: For darkladyothsith who wanted War, Famine, and Pollution, "waiting for Death."
"He's late," complained Pollution, absentmindedly tapping his foot on the ground and watching pieces of litter appear.
"What does it matter to you?" asked Famine. "Neither of our jobs requires Death to be in any great rush. Not like hers." He nodded towards War, examining the bright red polish on her nails for chips. She had just returned from a week's holiday in Africa.
"I imagine he's finishing up my business," she agreed. "9400 dead, I believe, at last count."
"9500," said Death, appearing unexpectedly and wiping his mouth. "And I had to stop for a bite to eat afterward."
