One day a snake approached Eve and told her that if she eat the fruit, she would be as smart as God himself. She decided to convince Adam to eat that fruit with her. When they did they realized that they were both naked and made clothes out of leaves. When God saw that they disobeyed him he expelled them from the garden.
