Adam's Love

It was a cheerful day in the college campus. Red roses, hearty balloons and greeting cards were seen everywhere. Every face had a smile and every hand had a hand to clasp. Amidst this lovely environment sat Susanna, wondering if anything was wrong with her. A new kind of loneliness filled her heart in spite of her being a cheerful bubbly girl with lots of friends. "Am I not worth it?" was the question running in her mind. She looked up and saw all her friends with their own partners happily exchanging presents.

"Susanna", came a voice, which disturbed her thinking. It was Abi, her best pal in class. He had his own trademark smile on his face as he sat near her. "Why are you sitting alone?" he asked her, with an all-knowing glitter in his eyes. She felt that he could really read her mind. "Can I ask you a question?" asked Abi. She nodded with affirmation. "Whom do you think Adam would have selected as his life-partner before Eve came into his life?". Susanna looked all puzzled because this thought had never crossed her mind before.

Abi said, "Well, I have a story to read to you Susanna, are you in a mood to listen?" Susanna nodded again.

"As he looked up and saw all the animals and all of the earth, he felt very proud to be the ruler of all. Adam was very happy in his kingdom "The Garden of Eden". As he walked past the animals, he saw that every animal had a pair. A sudden loneliness filled his heart.

Now, if he had decided to search for his partner on his own, he would have searched all of his Garden of Eden and would have got dejected. He would have consoled himself and would have settled for the cutest of the cutest Chimpanzee. He would have showered it with all his love. He would have clasped its hands. He would have told the Chimpanzee how much it means to him. Probably he would have even tried to kiss it and show his love.

But all his actions would have gone in vain. Though he consciously would have decided to accompany the Chimpanzee wherever it went,he would not have experienced true happiness or true love. Neither the Chimpanzee nor Adam would have understood each other's language.

Instead you know what Adam did? He knew God would give him his life-partner. He waited. And sure enough, God gave him Eve, a beautiful young woman whom Adam wouldn't even have imagined. They understood each other so well. They lived together expressing and exchanging true love and bliss."

Susanna's eyes lit up. She understood what Abi was ablout to tell her.

Dear friends, if you feel you are single and lonely, you have two options...
One - you can go and search of your life-partner yourself. But remember, all you'll get is just the cutest of the cutest Chimpanzee.
Two - You can decide to wait and depend on God to give you your soul mate, your Adam/Eve.

If you think you've already found your sweetheart and that your sweetheart does not understand your feelings and is always being indifferent to you, please understand that Chimpanzee do not understand Human's language and emotions.
