The Genesis of the Alternate Earth of the Unfallen Series

In book one of the series, The Queendom of Evlantis, the Earth is populated by two groups of people, though neither group is aware that the other exists. Here is the creation story of this alternate earth:

In the Garden of Paradisia, Eve ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Though she tried every wile she possessed to tempt Adam to indulge in the fruit with her, he remained stalwart in his resolve and true to the command of his Maker not to eat the fruit of the forbidden tree.

When the Creator of the Universe came to visit, Eve hid in fear. After a time, the Master told Adam that Eve had been cast out of the garden and banished beyond a high wall built of sheets of rock that the Master had called forth from deep within the earth to surround Paradisia. From that day forward, there were two rules in Paradisia: not to eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and not to cross the great wall.

Adam had thousands of acres of land to explore and cultivate, but he was lonely, more so than before Eve had been created for him. Often he stood at the wall weeping for his lost mate. Whenever the Creator visited Paradisia, Adam was asked if he wished to have a new woman. Adam held on to hope and always asked if Eve could come back to him. The answer was the same for 939 years. Eve was on the other side of the wall, but could not return to the garden.

In the 940th year after Eve’s departure, the Master visited Adam and told him that Eve was gone forever. The fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil had claimed Eve’s life, and she no longer walked upon the earth. Adam mourned a few years more, and then, the next time the Master visited, Adam agreed to take a new woman to be his soul mate and companion.

The name of his new wife was Aurora. Though she was curious about many things, she saw that her husband was crippled by a great hurt. Adam never told her about Eve, but he made it clear that he did not wish to lose Aurora, and treasured her greatly. She was a brilliant woman. Her intuition told her Adam had lost a woman who came before her, one who disobeyed the command of the Master. She loved Adam and wished to cause him no pain.

Centuries passed. In time, Aurora bore twelve children. Pain at the loss of Eve struck Adam less often, though there were times when he grappled with sadness, especially when a certain flower, a scent, or a particular birdsong reminded him of her.

Aurora taught her children above all to follow the commands of the Master. For Aurora and her children, there was no death or mourning, no wailing or pain. Adam alone bore the shadow of sadness that Eve’s sin had cast upon the garden. Life in the garden was perfect. There were challenges and discoveries that made every day seem like a new adventure. They lived like kings and queens in their own natural paradise, laughing often, working hard and playing harder, and wanting for nothing.

Once in a while Adam wondered about something: if Eve no longer walked the earth, why was Paradisia confined by a wall? But Adam’s obedience to the Lord God was so perfect that he let his trust in his Master overshadow his curiosity, and in time, his happiness became complete. For Adam did not know that when Eve was cast out of the garden, she was pregnant with his issue.
