           (The woman from Day # 381 stumbles on stage - she is now wrapped up a bit better and carrying a big pile of stuff - and she is very annoyed)

I can't believe he did it!  He thinks he's so big and powerful, ok, I get it!  But I mean, who woulda thought?  That he'd actually follow through!  On his own children!  Who does that?  And such a stupid thing, to eat an apple and get kicked out!  I mean it wasn't like LSD or anything serious!  Boy, one tiny, little mistake....okay we disobeyed, but hey, nobody's perfect, right?

            (She looks around)

And where the hell is Adam?  How come I get to carry all this stuff?  I hope this walking behind dragging everything is not gonna be a trend, because I don't like it.....

           (She sets down the baggage and her coat falls open to show she is pregnant.  She rubs her belly)

And this is no great delight either......whatever is in there is kicking up a storm......none of this was my fault....if I'd had a good soap opera to watch or maybe some HBO, I never would been having a latte with that stupid snake.  Well, I'll know better for next time.

             (She looks around)

Well, I'd better catch up with Adam, maybe he'll know what to do about whatever's happening in here.......maybe some Pepto Bismol will help......

               (She grabs her stomach, almost falls to her knees)

Whoa, that was no kick.......that was......painful.......What a sensation!  .But it also felt like, the beginning of something ......amazing........

               (She struggles to her feet, taking a few of the items with her)

.......what should I call it this .....I cain't think of the word....CAIN, now that sounds interesting....

               (She turns to leave, stops, looks back)

......maybe I'll be able to get through this after all......Able......

                (She walks off slowly.  The beginning of it all)


Deja vu.......

I like. The mixing of time lines is fun. I especially like the reference to Pepto
Bismol. That is funny.
