FADE IN:

INT. DEN. HOME IN GARDEN OF EDEN - NIGHT

ADAM is reading the newspaper on the sofa while EVE types furiously away at the computer on the desk nearby.

ADAM
Are you still blogging?

EVE
I just have a few more comments to reply.

ADAM
I'm tired, Eve.

EVE
Why don't you go on ahead, my love.
I'll be there in a few minutes.

Adam neatly folds the newspaper and sets it on the end table. Rising,

ADAM
How about some warm milk?

EVE
That would be lovely.

Eve watches Adam disappear into the kitchen then returns to the computer.

INSERT EXCHANGES BETWEEN EVE AND ABRA ON THE COMPUTER.

EVE
Abra, our relationship is in the Dead Sea!
It's been the same routine for hundreds of years.

ABRA
But, Eve, you're the most revered couple in history.
People worship you.

EVE
(flustered)
I don't want to be revered or worshipped.
I just want Adam to look at me the way he did on the day God created us.
Is that too much to ask?!

ABRA
All right, let me think.
Have you ever tried pasties?

EVE
Abra, I invented pasties. Leaves. Remember?

ABRA
True. I've got it! A love potion!

EVE
You've got to do better than that...

Eve stops, frozen, as Adam sets her glass of warm milk beside the computer. She manages to press the Escape key without him noticing, then turns to him.

EVE
Thank you, dear.

ADAM
So, all done?

EVE
Wha...? Oh, yes. Yes.

She picks up the glass of milk and sips. A message pops up on the computer screen.

ADAM
Are you feeling all right, Eve?

EVE
Yes, of course.
(laughs nervously)
Why wouldn't I?

ADAM
Because Abra just sent you a message to take Jasmine, Neroli, Lavender, Myrtle, and Ylang Ylang. Then Tangerine, Bergamot and Blood Orange with Zdravetz, Sandalwood, Nutmeg and Ginger wrapped in Vanilla, Cinnamon and Cardamon.

Disbelievingly, Eve watches Adam's expression transform. He grins boyishly.

ADAM
Eve, my darling, my love...

Eve turns the computer off, then turns to Adam, beaming. She leads him by the hand up the stairs. Under her breath,

EVE
(sighs)
God bless its pentium chip heart.

FADE TO BLACK

So cute! Again I was so involved I was thinking "turn the computer off" and didn't even see the ending coming. And of course I totally get a few more comments to reply too!! Very well done.

Mama Zen said...

Looks like it ended up being a night of passion in Eden!

Jules said...

And good thing he can read between the lines, eh?

Jay said...

I voted other on both of those choices. It's lovely to see Johnny Depp in there, but I can't see him in this one.

I vote for Felicity Kendall and Leonard Rossiter. LOL!

BTW, I updated the Billy Connolly thread with an explanation.

Your post brought a smile to my face :-) Nice.

Thks for dropping by on my blog, and for your comments. Yes, haven't written for a while, but will post soon-ish. Hoping to see you come by more often.

Hope you are having a good start to the week.

Best.

Deep Sea said...

Yes. 16th on bubble talk!
Someone suggested having a democratic process for deciding the next topic. I'm still thinking about it. :-)
I'll read your blog in detail soon. The current post I read definitely created a bookmark on my thoughts.
Cheers.

morton said...

That was really good Petra. One of my favorites.

bulletholes said...

I think jack elam would be a good representation of god's first man.
Sharon Stone for our Eve, from the time before she discovered Fig leraves...
And to represent the telepathic felicities of the Inet, where people communicate over the air...Shirley McClane!

Minx said...

Wonderful, Petra, I really enjoyed this one.

LarryG said...

hey that is too sweet...
how did you do that? :)

Very fun, great visual - and would film well...

Wordcrafter said...

:) Cute and funny, this has the potential for hysterical comedy, Petra. Will check out who could fill in the roles..Enjoyed it.

Rain

Rain is falling all around,

It falls on field and tree,

It rains on the umbrella here,
And on the ships at sea.
