At dawn Lucifer and Aladdin made their way down the huge flight of rough hewn granite stairs. They held hands, periodically gazing at each other.
'Where do we start?' said Lucifer.
'What do you mean?'
'You know, the whole 'coming out' thing. I mean, it's not every day the Lord of Hades announces he's gay.'
Aladdin leaned over, planted several rude, fat lipstick circles on Stan's cheek and said, 'You'll be fine.'
continued down the stairs. Aladdin thought of a tune - the humming
kind. He mouthed the words, 'Would you do that for me, would you let me
do that for you?'
'What?' said Lucifer.
'Just a song. Nothing special.'
'What's it called?'
'Anoint my stump with a kiss.'
Lucifer pushed his hands into his pockets and sniggered, 'I think we've done more than just anoint it!'
'Very funny. Any other euphemisms? How about, "I can't see the wood for the trees"?'
'Aladdin, don't be like that. It really was my first time... I would never...'
