Demeter, goddess of the harvest, was distraught. Her daughter the girl who knew all the flowers by name, and her laughter that was beautiful, had disappeared. Demeter watched as her daughter was snatched down in the underworld (Paragraph 1, Paragraph 2).
Hades begged her to be queen of his vast kingdom, but Persephone, was so sad she didn't want to hear what he had to say. She wanted to see her mother and her beautiful Earth (Paragraph 3).
But what he found there shocked him. There were no flowers to be seen, no colors either (Paragraph 5).
At least I get to be with my mother for 2 months! :)
"Please", Persephone cried, "I only at four seeds because I was so thirsty. It was so little- I ate just what I needed to stay alive (Paragraph 13).
Hades, Zeus, and Demeter discussed a deal: they decided that Persephone would spend half the year above ground and then return to the underworld for the other half (Paragraph 15).
Everyone agreed that Demeter would be happy to have her daughter back, while the ghosts of the underworld would be grateful for Persephone's sunny laughter in their dark dreary home (Paragraph 15).
