Men’s ex and women’s ex weigh differently-Part 21

Men tend to believe their ex-partners would never get over the past relationships, maybe because men themselves cannot let go of their old flame.  Women become irreplaceable in his mind after they turn into 'ex' because the time he invested in his 'ex' should not go wasted.  Of course, we must not overgeneralize, but some men jeopardize their current relationships, ironically soon to be added to the men's collection of past booties. 

Women, on the other hand, move on as soon as a new romantic interest shows up.  Her past…what past?  Should her new beau hurt her, she may contact her ex, but in her mind, he is almost a new flame.  Of course, I am talking about women with hearts, not gold-diggers, who are much more stable in relationships.  Her mind, not her heart, executes the gold-diggers purpose.

Adam looks surprised.  Eve asks: ‘What? Were you surprised that I spoke her name without nagging you?  You were once the world to me because there was no other competition, being the first and ONLY man, but now there are plenty of attractive options.’  However, Adam is not convinced.  Eve sighs, ‘God, he still thinks I am putting up a brave face.  Why did I miss the first clue when he dumped all the blame on me?

THE CHARACTERS

SERPENT, aka NAGA, the eight-headed deity.  The snake 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 the mantle of anonymity.  On good days we can fight off the temptation, but on bad days when we have just lost something, and the world seems unfair, 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.

NAGA represents the second chance and atonement in life.  

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.

THE SPIRIT of LOUIS XIII: The king of France who reigned from 14 May 1610 to 14 May 1643.  Enigmatic character the world may not have fully appreciated, not unlike the current, which can be substantial even if the river looks calm.

OMELETTE: the dog who was the pet of Louis XIII in its former life.

TRUST: The Nephilim, rejected by the angels and the man, opted to take over the dark throne vacated by the Serpent.  Devil was the name imposed on the Nephilim by the man, while the name he chose for himself is TRUST.

ADAM: Of course, the first man was created after the shape of God.

EVE: First woman with flesh created from a rib of ADAM.
