myth of Persephone, Hades, Ayana, and Demeter
Once there was a lonely God named Hades. Hades never knew how to love because he had such a sad childhood. Anyways, one day Aphrodite saw him in his usual sad state of mind and had to put a stop to it.
Aphrodite sent her son, Eros, to strike him with a bow that was enchanted with love. Whoever Hades saw momentarily after the strike of the bow, would he fall in love with.
The first girl that Hades saw, was Persephone. Hades wanted her to be his wife. But Hades knew that Persephone's mother, Demeter, would never let her daughter become the wife of one of the most darkest men on the planet. It's not like Persephone would be attracted to him anyways, she only loved flowers.
Hades had to have her. That is why he called his long lost sister to help him. When Hades was a young boy, he had a sister named Ayana. Ayana is the Goddess of flowers. When Hades' dark magic was unravelled, she was frightened by his dark magic so she fled. Decades later, Hades saw her growing flowers in a lonely village. Hades threatened to send her to the underworld where no life can be there. If she wanted to live in peace, she would have to do him a favour. Now Hades would have plenty of help to capture Persephone.
Later, Hades made Ayana enchant the flowers so that Persephone would be drawn to it and try to pick it. When she did that, Hades would bring her to the underworld where she would be his loving wife. Later that night, Demeter noticed that her daughter was gone and she began to look everywhere.
And I mean everywhere. She looked for her daughter for 9 days and 9 nights.
