I want to see if you understand the symbolism of each facet of the story, like the significance of the apple, and the meaning of the dragonfly and its actions.

Sinful Indulgence

August 17, 2019

My father begged me not to pick the apple. 
But it was exquisite, round, and with such a lovely, golden luster. When I reached out to touch it, a white dragonfly landed on my shoulder, like a pinprick of light. I tore the fruit from its perch and sank my teeth into its flesh. 
The dragonfly bit down on my shoulder, and as I cried out, it turned red as blood.
