Will doesn’t mind when his company HR officer, Elizabeth, ropes him into charity events. Well, to be quite accurate, he minds, but he knows better than to protest. But a bachelor auction? In a toga? With his PA Jon at the event? (The PA he kind of has a little crush on. A very little one. Shut up.) Oh well, it’s not as if Jon’s going to put in a bid for a date with Will. Is he? Is he?

I imagine him stamping his feet and jumping up and down. Possibly shouting ‘it isn’t fair, I’m telling my mum!’ ‘mad with a goat’, lol.
