Persephone, the daughter of Demeter, was happy with Demeter. Demeter never let any boy go near Persephone. Demeter loved Persephone.
Where is she? Where is Persephone?
Do you know where Persephone is?
One day, there was a boy named Hades. Persephone liked him. So Hades asked Demeter if he could marry Persephone, but Demeter said no. Hades was heart broken and Demeter said there wouldn't be a chance they would marry. But Hades never gave up.
No, I don't know where Persephone is. I'm sorry.
Persephone was picking flowers until the ground cracked open. Hades came out of the crack and took Persephone into his chariot and flew away. No one saw except Zeus. He saw the whole thing but never told anyone. No one knew where Persephone disappeared.
She is going to live with me!
She is going to live with both of you. Six months with Demeter, six months with Hades.
No, with me!
When Persephone was missing, Demeter was worried. She never knew where she went. So she started looking for her.
Demeter asked Helios where Persephone was but he didn't know. Demeter ended up finding out that Hades took Persephone. She got angry at Zeus because he knew Hades took Persephone. Demeter went to look for Persephone. Hades gave Persephone pomegranate seeds so she would stop crying and fall in love and live with him.
Hades and Demeter were arguing because they each wanted Persephone to live with them. Zeus said that they take turns, a couple months with Hades, and a couple months with Demeter. Hades and Demeter had to agree on it with no other option. So six months with Hades, six months with Demeter
