Persephone was in the meadow looking for flowers for her mom. But Hades (the god of the underworld) made a flower to trick Persephone and steal her.
This flower is really beautiful, I should give this to mother.
Second, Hades scooped her to the ground and was committed to have Persephone as his wife. She refused to eat anything and starved.Then Hades got Persephone to eat some pomegranate seeds before she left because she was very hungry. This meant that she was the Queen of the Underworld
Zeus sent Hermes the Messenger down to retrieve Persephone. but because she ate 6 seeds she had to spend 6 months of the year as the Queen of the Underworld and 6 months on earth helping crops grow. And because Persephone ate those seeds we have winter.
