forbidden fruit.

In the morning, the whole world had a strange new smell. It was the smell of the aftermath, a green smell, a smell of shedded leaves and oozing resin, of crushed wood and splashed sap, a tart smell, which bore some relation to the smell of bitten apples. It was the smell of death and destruction and it smelled fresh and lively and hopeful.
