"Do you think your dreams about being in the Garden of Eden is just your way of coping. If you think about Rebel, your life and the life of Adam and Eve is very similar." The Priest said as Rebel started down the statue of Jesus. He pictured Jesus watching him, telling him everything is going to be alright.
"Were Adam and Eve happy after they left the Garden?" Rebel asked.
"It depends how you look at it. When death entered the world it's first victim was the son of Adam and Eve. Do you think you would be happy living with the weight of death on your shoulder?" Priest asked.
Rebel tries to hold in tears thinking about everything he has lost so far. This is what his life has come too.
"In your dreams you say it's always you who eats the apple?" Priest asked.
Rebel shakes his head yes no longer able to hold in the tears.
"Maybe, you are holding onto something. You feel as if the recent deaths in your life are because of you." Priest explained.
They are because of me, Rebel thinks to himself.
"My Child, go forth from this moment and let go of everything. Adam and Eve found their way back into Paradise. This life on earth is nothing to what awaits in heaven."
Rebel doesn't have the courage to tell the Priest how he really feels. Heaven and Hell were nothing but man made shit. If there was a God who was as wonderful as these people believed in their blind religion he wouldn't have a created a hell. Rebel thinks, maybe the Devil is just as strong as God and religion doesn't give him the credit he deserves. There is good in this world but for every good act there are ten evil ones that go unpunished. So why must we beg and be forgiven when we live a life of good but those who do harm are free to keep killing, raping, breaking the law without any guilt. Rebel knew the rules. The bad guys had it better because they didn't have to feel. They were immune to the ideas of Paradise and the afterlife. Hell was nothing but a vacation they looked forward too.
