the story of Persephone
Once during the time of the Greek gods Hades was sad and alone since he had the underworld all to himself and he wanted someone to accompany him in the underworld so he went up into olympus to ask Zeus who he could marry
Meanwhile Demeter and her daughter Persephone where in olympus Persephone was playing with by the garden while her mom was nurturing the earth but Hades had seen Persephone and fell in love with her
Zeus was hanging around when Hades had asked if he could marry Persephone and told him how lonely he was but Zeus didn't know what Demeter would say but he was careless and saw how sad his brother was he let him take Persephone to the underworld
When Hades brought Persephone she was angry at Hades for taking her away from her mother and she thought that she would be stuck there forever with Hades but she didn't know what was happening above in olympus
Zeus heard what he thought were cries and they were Demeter's cries and he was confused why she was crying and he asked her and she told him that she can't find Persephone and he gets guilty quick.
Zeus tells Demeter what had happened that Hades and Persephone got married and she gets angry really fast and asks him how they got married and Zeus tells Demeter that he allowed them to get married and she starts telling him to get her back from Hades and if he doesnt she will leave olympus until she is back from the underworld.
