“Do you remember what an idiot that Adam guy was?” laughed Lilith.
“So dumb,” chuckled Eve. “He couldn’t handle either one of us,” she continued. “We were so much more intelligent and clever than he was. And you, you had such power. You terrified him, that’s why he wanted someone one more subservient, so he could feel more important.”
“Well, you certainly weren’t that person,” said Lilith, smiling. “And he was applephobic. Did you ever meet anyone who was afraid of apples?”
“He was afraid of his own shadow,” sighed Eve. “I had to do everything. He was afraid of snakes and spiders too. He ran away from a doe. A DOE. Can you imagine?”
“Oh, don’t I know it. A spider walked across his thigh, one afternoon, and he screamed and screamed. Scared the poor spider to death. When he stopped jumping around, I was gone,” snickered Lilith. “Gone for good. He was such a big baby. I remember one time when he found a new leaf to wear. I told him it was poison ivy, but would he listen? Of course not. I think he learned something from that experience.”
“He was a terrible template for a species, ” said Eve, shaking her head.
“I agree. And he was weak too. Look at us. Still alive and having fun.”
“I think we should go back to being twenty-one again. I’m getting tired of playing at being an older woman.”
“Good idea. Let’s be our beautiful selves again.”
“What nationality and where will we live?”
“It’s your turn to choose,” said Lilith.
A few minutes later they walked away, laughing together, their perfect bodies glistening in the sunlight.
