Forbidden Fruit

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.

“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.”
