“I’d take you to the garden of eden,” the old man said. Professor Jones was skeptical, but followed him deep inside the forest anyway.
“See the tree over there? It was the tree of good and evil.”
The professor looked at the tree and remembered how Adam and Eve were forced out of the garden for eating the forbidden fruit.
“Abandoned and neglected,” the old man sighed, “the garden was reclaimed by the surrounding forest. No trace of it was ever found again.”
“Now, Professor, if you would please hand me your wallet and camera if you want to live.”
