The lightning flashed in the sky behind him and Gabriel's wings manifested in the rain storm for a moment flickering majestically. "Noah, you must raise the gangplank and leave now!" He intoned, making his voice a full octave lower than usual.
Animals were marching up quickly, only a few remained, standing knee deep in the rising flood water.
"God has chosen this time for you to depart." Gabriel raised his hand and the gangplank hurtled up onto the deck.
The unicorns whined on the ground below, the water rising higher around them. Gabriel had never liked those pointy head pricks.
