‘The Split’ By Vivian Greene

Peace and harmony were all they had ever known until satan disguised himself as a snake and convinced Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge. Flooded with all that the tree bore Adam quickly realizes he can hear eve’s thoughts. Terrified she could do the same to him, he tricks her and convinces her that nothing happened from eating the apple. He trains her mind to be still so he can always be on watch. soon they have children and some children are born fluid and some are born still. until (thanks to the lie told to eve) the eventual enslavement of the still. As time goes on even the fluid do not remember why there are two types of minds but It’s gods command that the fluid will one day free the still and they will all be forgiven for eating from the tree of knowledge.
