Adam and Eve

A myth submitted to the site by Rachel Smith


Long long ago, in a magical world, with sapphire blue waters, splashing and sploshing, and fruit trees, there was a place with, a sun that was always shining and lush green grass that would tickle your feet, there lived two people called Adam and Eve. They lived within the greenest plants and ate the fruit from the fruit trees. They had oranges, apples, bananas, pears and more. There was only one tree God said they could not eat the fruit off, and that was the Bong-bong tree where the evil snake lived.

The evil snake had slimy, shiny, green scales and long pink feet. He was on the Devil’s side and walked around the tree. The Devil told him what God had said to Adam and Eve about the tree. He suggested when Eve came near, the snake should persuade her to eat the luscious, juicy fruit.

Quickly, the next day, Eve ran past the tree in which the evil snake lived, trying not to be tempted by the appearance of the peach like fruit. However the snake caught her eye, lying on the floor, helplessly pretending to be hurt. Eve took pity on him and picked him up, the snake whimpered, “Eat the fruit, eat the fruit it will make me well, God will understand, please help me.” The snake sounded serious so Eve disobeying God’s guidance picked the fruit and took a bite and how glad she felt. The snake smiled. Eve ran to wake Adam, “Adam Adam wake up wake up,” Eve cried, “Try the fruit!”
“What fruit?” questioned Adam, “We’ve tried all the fruit except you can’t you didn’t, God specifically said we weren’t allowed to eat the fruit from that tree.

“I’m so sorry I let you and God down, I’m sorry,” cried Eve. Suddenly God appeared he did not look happy. As quick as a flash Eve fled from the reeds. Up a mountain Eve climbed not knowing Adam and God were close behind. Adam grabbed Eve she tried to push him off so that she could be alone. But Adam didn’t give up. Meanwhile the devil had a plan he wasn’t far behind. God notice the fiery flames appearing behind the mountain so immediately he took action. He pointed his fingers at Adam and Eve blue lights shot out and turned them to stone. They would be safe there until the devil had gone. As for the snake he lost his legs. To this day the Devil and God are still fighting and will not stop. Adam and Eve silently watch and wish they could help but instead they wait hoping they will become normal people once again.
