As night approached, Adam and Eve found refuge under the bridge to protect them from the winter cold.

Shivering in the dark, Eve started to cry feeling sorry for their circumstances.

“It was my fault for getting us kicked out from the shelter. I shouldn‘t have eaten an apple without permission.”

“It’s all in the past,” Adam said trying to comfort her. “As long as we have each other, we’ll do fine.”

Adam cuddled and kissed her. Then one thing led to another until it happened. For one brief moment, they experienced peace and everything was alright with the world.

    A modern take, not quite the garden of Eden anymore.

    Whatever they did, they did not do it in the garden of Eden. We are now facing the consequence.

    Just to think, it all started under a bridge. i expect we are all still looking for that shelter where apples are freely give out.
