You have heard the story of Adam and Eve, right?  God created them and gave them a beautiful place to live.  His warning was that they should not eat the forbidden fruit -- the apple.  Eve is tempted by the snake to eat the apple and it goes downhill from there.  Well, here is a retelling from Eve's point of view.  The serpent takes Eve under his wing and teaches her to think for herself.  She begins to question.  She begins to want to know what lies beyond the garden.  In this version of the story, the snake is actually the good guy.  As a matter of fact, God has asked the snake to raise Eve.
