The old question of why good girls like bad boys (and vice versa)?
It all has to do with that darn tree. You know that tree that the stray female went to and some pimp whispered in her ear sweet nothings. Next thing you know, she was bringing her new tricked-out cherry (or was it an apple) back to the neglectful nice guy she was cool with before.
Well besides blaming whoever, it was said that the knowledge that was sought after and found would kill them. To me, I feel “it” meant the partnership they had.
See a good girl likes a good guy until the bad boy whispers in her ear. It’s like giving a vegan-raised kid licking a chicken nugget for the 1st time. Ignorance is bliss but, we are taught that knowledge is power.
By showing and explaining what lurks out there may not be enough to help someone identify it when it’s in his/her face. Also, some of those bad people don’t think they are bad. They sometimes feel that they know more. Just like the chick with the apple. At the point when she returned, she thought her knew finding was a great gift when actually she was that “bad girl.” The guy’s friends would have been like, “you need to leave her alone.” All the sudden she’s carrying some bad thing that he’s warned not to taste and, she has a bad rep for hanging around Pimp Tree Tree.
At the same time, after biting the tainted fruit, do you think he would have appreciated the former version of her?
If you can’t tell this is coming from a very familiar place for me. I sat eye-to-eye with a guy who had bitten into way too many apples. After what he fed me was identified to be crap, he realized that he’d been lying to himself also. He no longer had a genuine way.
See…it’s easier to skip through a field with someone if you weren’t almost killed by a landmine during war when you were younger. He was suspicious of ever petal we passed.
Sometimes knowing what you do makes you less attracted to those that don’t know. After biting fruit, it’s hard to not like glucose.
