“Adam,” a voice called.
Slowly Adam relaxed. That was a voice he knew well. “God?” he answered.
“Come,” God said.
Adam walked through the cooling grass, tripping over a hillock in his excitement to talk to the Creator.
“What is that? I have never seen a creature like that!” He exclaimed, as he met God under the stand of palm trees, their usual meeting place.
“She is your partner, Adam. She is your other half, just like the animals have partners so they won’t be lonely, I have created her from you Adam. She is a part of you.”
Adam beamed in joy. His Creator had seen how lonely he had felt. The cats were great company, but at the end of the day he needed more than a cat sleeping on his head and purring in his lap.
“Now Adam, I need to teach you some things to help you and Eve connect.”
Adam’s luminous chocolate-coloured eyes widened as God described the act of hugging to him. As he rushed off in the darkness, God smiled.
“God! God!” Adam’s voice rang through the star-filled heavens as he darted through the flower beds, ignoring for the first time the heady scent of night jasmine that raised its glorious smell to the skies.
“That was amazing! I have never experienced anything like that! Is there anything more?”
God’s lips curled slightly, “I am glad you asked Me that. Yes. Let Me tell you about kissing your partner.”
Adam hoofed it, hollering to Eve and obscuring even the noise of the bullfrogs and the crickets as they sang worship to their God. In the distance God overheard Eve giggle in delight as Adam showed her his latest moves.
Quietness fell. God waited. An eternity passed, and the world slept. Well, almost the whole world. Mice scuttled through the meadows, lilacs threw their perfume to the winds for all to enjoy and oak trees bowed their massive verdant heads in worship to the King.
God eventually heard what He had been waiting for. Adam’s voice came through the velvety shadows; his whole being was caught up in the moment, exuberance leaked from every pore of his perfect body.
“Oh God! That was perfect!” His words tumbled from him, unhindered by any inhibitions or self-consciousness.
The Lord looked with great love on this, His favourite; and said, “Ah, but Adam, I have saved the best for last.”
“You mean there’s more?” Adam could barely believe his ears. How could it get better than hugging and kissing this woman?
Incredulously Adam drank in the words spoken by God. His brow wrinkled at first as he tried to grasp the new actions he was meant to do; but his face brightened as God explained how this was part of His plan for he and Eve, and how it would bring them great pleasure.
Oh yeah! It sure will! Adam’s mind raced with the thought of combining the hugging, the kissing and now this! It would surely put Eve in raptures of delight.
Once more Adam left the palm trees, threading his way through the carnations and the rose beds, running as anticipation took over.
Two minutes later he was back at the palm trees. “God. What’s a headache?”
