For Sam, it began with an innocuous request from Lilah, a single mother, to take her kids to the merry-go-round.

As their relationship blossomed, they moved in together. It was then that she eventually took over his life.

Feeling smothered, Sam confronted her one weekend.

“We need to talk,” he said.

“I don’t like the tone in your voice. Are you breaking up with me?”

Lilah started bawling.

“No, no. I’m just wondering if I can go out with the boys tonight.”

“And leave me all alone with the kids? Who would put them to bed?”

“Fair enough,” Sam sighed.

Jordan was a picture of total devotion as he said his bedtime prayers with eyes closed and hands clasped over his breast.

“Look at your son, Stephen,” Camila told her husband. “I think he’s bound for the priesthood.”

“Heaven forbid,” Stephen thought. As his only son, it would be the end of his bloodline.

“What am I going to do?” He asked Samuel over drinks.

“Nothing,” his best friend replied. “Let nature take its course.”

Samuel was right. In middle school, Jordan met a new girl named Eva. At lunchtime, she shared him an apple and the rest was history.

“Make hay while the sun shines,” her grandpa would say, but Brie loved to procrastinate. She had this attitude that things had a way of taking care of themselves.

The only exception was on her wedding day. Brie was in church at 7:00 a.m. en ponto. As the last remaining single among her friends, it was a trip that she couldn’t miss.

In her grandpa’s eyes, Brie was the most beautiful bride in the world. He hoped she wouldn’t postpone having kids so he could enjoy them while he was still alive and kicking. For that, wish grandpa good luck.

It was a lovely spot by the river that reminded him of the paradise that they lost after eating the forbidden fruit.

Adam went there to keep his sanity. As you know, Eve could be too clingy like the forebear of the koala. Could you blame him if he felt like she was still a rib that hadn’t left his side?

This was one of those times. Adam hid under a tree for his much-needed space and fell asleep. Unfortunately, Eve found him soon enough betrayed by his distinctive snoring style. She gave him an earful that he wouldn’t forget.
