Inspiring Soundtrack: Audiomachine -Apotheosis – Tree of Life
Zoe now focused on the unique tree in front of them. Its roots were not only spread deep but also spanned countless miles on end, as evidenced by the ruptured earth that passed between her and Adam’s feet.
“My goodness, have you ever beheld something that possessed this much grandeur?” were the words of an awestruck Adam.
“It truly is magnificent.”
“I’m going to do a bit more of exploring. If you need anything, I’ll just be over the hill down in the meadow.” He turned to leave.
“Who – ?” Zoe looked down at her arm, only to discover that the serpent had disappeared.
Yes, who? was the reply of a voice, whose location she could not yet discern–until she noticed the shimmering scaly reflection of several coils tightly wrapped around the lower boughs of the tree and the head of which looked on with eerie approval.
Take of the fruit my dear Zoe, for once you do you will achieve a state that you had once thought to be unattainable.
“Which is what?”
The serpent smiled coyly.

I get that feeling of watching a movie and wanting to scream at the screen and tell her to not listen…to ignore the hissing serpent, run to Adam. And yet I know she can’t hear me. Yet I want to yell anyway lol!!
I enjoyed this greatly.
Seems I’ve heard this story before somewhere. 🙂
Love the Apotheo-siss
The tension is unbearable! What next??? Lovely instalment Leighton thank you!
🙂 I love how you ended with the hiss! 🙂 Desperately waiting for tomorrow’s excerpt!
Beautifully and thoughtfully articulated, my friend. Your words doth resonate with vibrant candour. Very well done. Thank you for your contribution to this ongoing collaboration.
Loved how you described the snake. This is such a hard act to follow. (:
Will she, won’t she? Great stuff!
Wow! I can’t wait for tomorrow… 🙂
Oh, of course that dreaded serpent had to come along! Well done. I can’t wait to see what’s next!
Fantastic interweaving of the music and the title track as temptation of divinization!

I like how you bring the snake to life.
Yeah, that last line is BRILLIANT!
Love the last line, hissed as it was. And I enjoyed your detailing of the serpent.
