For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 20 October 2017

Note: It’s time for me to recharge and take that much-needed vacation. As a result, I’ll be missing in action and not posting and blogging for a few weeks. I will be back sometime in December.

Before Apple became a name brand, it was the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden.

One day, the serpent descended from the tree and talked Eve into taking a bite.

“What have you done?” Adam cried out upon seeing her partake of the apple.

“I dare that you do the same,” Eve retorted.

When Adam hesitated, she became more persistent.

“Just do it!”

“Yes, dear,” Adam finally relented with those now famous words. He thought it was smart to eat it all to hide the evidence, but it proved futile against the all-knowing God.

And the rest was history.

    “‘Just do it’ … the now famous words..”
    Such a humourous take on the story. Wonderful, Plaridel!
    Wishing you a great vacation!

      I think Plaridel might have mentioned the words ‘Yes, Dear’ as the now famous words. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Really liked you retelling. Yes, the rest has been history for men and women ever since. “What did you do a dumb thing like that for?” “Just be
    quiet and help me fix this!” ๐Ÿ˜‰
