The trees, thorny bushes, rocks, and streams looked artistic scattered all over the place. Fruits were in abundance, so were fish and other animals. It took a while to figure out that a pointed stake was a weapon to hunt the prey. The last week’s storm burned a tree. As the embers continued to glow, who’d have guessed that cooked flesh tasted great?

It was the same thing every day. Sleep when the sky was dark, wake up with a groan when the sun was high. Of course, we had to leak as well. Having an audience was awkward for me. So, I did it behind the trees or hills.

To say I was bored would be an understatement. My friends… let’s call them fellows, were dumb. It dawned that my brain was comparatively better after interacting with them. That’s when I knew we were missing something. I had to know what it was.


“Woo hoo! Man, you up there? We need to talk.” I was in the forbidden garden at midnight.

“I’m here.” His voice was like the nectar of a flower.

“Aren’t we missing something?” Better get to the point straight away.

He smiled. “Yes. Women.”

“Who are they?” I scratched my tangled hair. A spider crawled out.

“Your female counterpart. A she to your he.”

“Send them then,” I demanded.

He sighed. “I made that mistake once. Not again.”

A chill crept down my spine. “What do ya mean?”

He faded away leaving me in the dark.
