Enkidu returns to the forest as he does every day... but the animals run!
They can smell his clean, perfumed scent and it isn't the Enkidu they know. Worse, after seven days of rest, and his mind now thinking of ease and comfort, Enkidu is slow! When he chases animals he can't catch them! Is this what civilisation does to you? Shamhat made him weak!
It's time to decide. There can be no second thoughts. Enkidu must either return to the forest and the life of his ancestors since the beginning of time, or follow Shamhat and never again know his old life. Which is it to be? Or is there another choice?
