For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 11 August 2017

After being together for some time now, Adam was yet to make the first move.

“What’s wrong with me?” Eve asked the serpent resting on the rock.

“Nothing. You can put a Victoria’s Secret angel to shame.”

“Do you think he’s gay?”

“I doubt it,” the serpent replied eager to sow intrigue. “I suspect another woman. I advise that you count his ribs.”

And so Eve went to Adam as he was fast asleep and followed the serpent’s suggestion.

“What are you doing?” Adam reacted. “That tickles!”

Needless to say, it led to further exploration.

And the rest was history.

    Ah, nothing like a good tickle session to get the ball rolling. Looks like Eve was right to follow the snake’s advice — this time!

    Dear Plaridel,

    One of the most creative takes on an old account I’ve ever read. ‘Count his ribs…’ I laughed out loud at that one.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
