By the time Adam flew in from on high Julia had already left for work that day. It wasn’t the first time his night job had kept him from being with her for the night, and he thought it wouldn’t be the last. Crisis seemed to come up before he could blink these days. Last night the sun had almost gone out. Heaven help him, but who would do that? Burn out the sun and kill everyone? Who could possibly be that evil? Or that unhappy?
