Adam exhaled, shook his head and requested for his meal.
‘Under the mango tree, my love… fruit salad today. I bet you’ll love it’.
Famished and weary of her now increasingly annoying jealousy, he sprawled on the grass, ready to shove ‘em fruits down his throat.
‘How long will this continue? Ehn?’

Munching… It tastes different. Sweet. Unusual.
‘Eat, my lord’ She whispered with a wry grin.
Adam munches on. Adam looks down… on his plate. Blinks twice. Wipes eyes.
He pulls grasses over his groin.
Eve is startled. ‘Adie, you scare me. What’s it?’
Adam turns to her… His eyes widened. He notices her bare breasts for the first time.
Meanwhile few trees away, the Serpent is having a good laugh.
‘Perfect! They ate it!’
