Laban, Rachel, Leah and Laban's thugs hang on Jacob's every word:
We've fought water wars in Palestine...
We got fantastically rich...
I won my family's inheritance...
My brother tried to kill me...
As Jacob speaks, he sees plumpy Leah's tender, attractive eyes.
Beside Leah, Rachel shines, taller, athletic.
Leah is a housewife, not a supermodel princess.
Wow! Jacob! My own flesh & bone family!
So Jacob stays with Laban for a month during which:
-- he waters the cattle, stares, smitten with his stunning cousin Rachel;
-- he builds a barn, still staring at Rachel;
-- He plants a field, still staring at Rachel...
You're my relative! Why should you work for me like a slave? Tell me, how much do you want me to pay you?
Laban winks at plump Leah.
Leah bats her sweet tender eyes at Jacob.
Jacob manages a half-smile,.
But his eyes flash back like magnets to the perfectly-formed Rachel.
I'll serve you for 7 years-
- if you'll give me the hand of Rachel, your younger daughter, in marriage.
It's better that I give Rachel to you, her cousin, than that I give her to another man.
Jacob does a double-take... like, was that a ‘Yes?’
Before Jacob can clarify, Laban's arm hangs around Jacob's shoulder:
Live here with me, my son!
Laban grins at Leah.
