Sometimes Adam wondered if Eve actually came from his ribs. She had a mind of her own with an unbound curiosity that would cause their fall from grace. She could be heartless and cruel, too.

It was eons before the Taliban so he must learn to adapt.

“What are you doing?” she said one afternoon and slapped him hard when he felt the need for intimacy. “Don’t you realize I’m having a nap?”

Frustrated, Adam walked out to gather firewood for the night. It was then that he found a female hominin in heat. He immediately went to her rescue.

    Hominin in heat, huh? They are, just like humans and other big apes, always receptive. Except for when they don’t want to… like Eve.

    It seems there was another link in our human evolutionary chain. Great tale of human lust.

    Dear Plaridel,

    Well that explains a lot, doesn’t it? Imaginative story.

    Tragic tale, I know, but why was I laughing?! And was that third party Lilith by any chance?
