There was a man and a woman who came to the garden, and their names were Earth and Breath,
They had with them a small fruit which the Man carried, and when they arrived at the gate to the garden, the Man gave the fruit to the Woman, and the Woman gave the fruit to the Serpent with the flaming sword who guarded the Eastern Gate.
And the Serpent took the fruit and it placed it upon a tree in the center of the garden.
Then Earth and Breath knew their clothedness, and removed their garments, one by one, until they were naked, and when the Lord walked through the garden he saw the man and the woman, who no longer knew good from evil, but were satisfied, and He saw that it was good.
Then the Lord opened the gates and gave Mankind the garden, and the Serpent raised up, and it walked away proudly on four strong legs; and where it went none by the Lord can say.
After that there was nothing but silence in the Garden, save for the occasional sound of the man taking away its name from another animal.
