We were grazing and playing in the largefields of Eden.We were happy. God had given man a name, Adam and he had created woman out ofhis rib. He named her Eve.
A crafty and evil snakecame into the garden. All of us animals heard him talking with Eve. He tried totrick her so she would eat the fruitfrom the tree that God forbid them to eat from.
“It is a lie.” The snakesaid to Eve. “You will not die if you eat fruit from the tree.” We all knewthat eating from that tree was against the laws. That was the only rule here inthe garden here about the trees.
“No, for God told us notto eat from that tree.”
“When you eat from thattree,” the snake began. “You will receive wisdom to judge between good andevil.” Eve looked delighted. Once she picked a fruit from the tree, all of usanimals couldn’t look. We knew it would be shameful if you saw someone disobeyGod’s only rule.
After she ate it, weheard her talking to Adam. She told him all the snake had told her about eatingthe fruit.
“You’ll get wisdom fromeating from the fruit,” she said to Adam. “It is the most delicious fruit,better than the other fruit from the other trees.” We saw Adam taking the fruitand heard him take one juicy bite out of the apple.
“It is delicious,” Adamsaid to Eve. “Just like you said.” We saw the snake cackling and pointing atAdam and Eve.
“I am so good attricking people into making people do what displeases God.” He said to himself.
We then knew that Godwas coming because we heard God’s thumping footsteps in the background. Adamand Eve were hiding in the bushes. All of us animals ran far but close enoughto hear the conversation.
“Where have you been?”God asked Adam and Eve.
“I am naked and I am afraidthat you would see me, and I would be ashamed if you saw me dressed like this.”Adam responded.
“It wasn’t thenakedness, was it?” God said in a scolding voice. “Did you eat from the tree Icommanded you not to eat from?” We were all afraid of God’s booming voice. Adamstarted playing the blame game.
“It’s Eve’s fault I atethe fruit.” Adam said. “She gave the fruit to me.” I think playing the blamegame is just as bad as making an excuse.
“It’s the serpent’sfault.” Eve blamed. “He tricked me into eating the fruit.”
“You are to be morecursed than any other thing on earth and you will have to crawl on your bellyand eat dust the rest of your life.” God scolded the snake. Us animals didn’teven feel the least bit sorry for him even though he was an animal too. Healways teased us in the field.
As for Adam and Eve,they were driven from the garden and they would have to labour out in the wildwith all their future generations
