Serpent confesses his part in Original sin-Part 3

I do not mean any disrespect to religions, but I tried to revisit what might have happened in the Garden of Eden in a realistic light.  Of course, snakes would not talk in real life, but human nature would not be so different back then from how we are now.  In this episode, the Serpent confesses, but in other episodes, Adam and Even will have their turn each.  If only I could figure out Google's valuation system: Crawled but not indexed is a nightmare phrase for aspiring bloggers.  

In the last episode, Eve accidentally stepped on Serpent and called him ugly.  The serpent was hurt physically and emotionally.  'Simple 'sorry' would have done, moron!' Serpent thought to himself that Eve was so beautiful!  Then he saw Adam, a dead ringer for God and just as beautiful!   

The Serpent thinks to himself, ‘Why couldn't it have been me looking like God or Goddess?  Jealousy.... that devil was sprouting inside me for the first time.  I lost myself.  The scene switches back to the present in Jardin de Luxembourg.  The Serpent weakly tries to joke about his mistake to Goddess IRIS/Nemesis, ‘I was still a delinquent itching to show off my knowledge... IRIS/Nemesis was kind with Serpent: The Greeks know that you assisted Asclepius, the God of Medicine.  To this, Serpent leapt into a jolly mood.  IRIS/Nemesis admonished him:  Stop gloating if you want to accompany me.  I am meeting up with one great king who put the nation before him.

They came to Queen's park, lined with queens' statues.  IRIS Nemesis pointed to Marie de Medici: And yet his mother, whose statue here, took him for a fool and conspired to dethrone him for her younger son.' Serpent wisely commented: Fools don't have the brain to appreciate the intelligence of others.  Then they were in PLACE DES VOSGES, where the statue of Louis XIII is located.  Serpent wonders, ‘I thought the king after he was the great Sun King.’


CHARACTERS in my Graphic Novel


SERPENT represents the frailty that sees us stray from the path and often into darkness.  Big predators make the headlines, but ordinary people are tempted to commit small-scale cheating when shielded under anonymity. On good days we can fight off the temptation, but on bad days when we just have lost something, our hands reach out for it while a sinking feeling spreads inside our hearts, warning us that this is not the way to get even with life. However, God or the universe may not mind if the gain is minimal. So we tell ourselves.


Perhaps, horror stories draw us in because we may slip into darkness at any time at our own will.   We may need religion or fantasy stories, hoping they will bring us back into the light.  I am too chicken to wrong individuals, but my integrity did not always hold firm against faceless organizations.  My story combines horror and fantasy, but you will find it oddly accurate because I will not sugarcoat the truth. To myself, I will be brutal.


GODDESS IRIS/NEMESIS: Instead of picking one from the existing religions, all of which I respect, I opted to represent the universe's will via Goddess IRIS. God gave us light, and Goddess followed it up with the sound, but as sound travels slower than light, no one knows her existence despite benefiting from her gift, music. Something turned this once open-book IRIS into NEMESIS, Goddess of Retribution.
