WHen Persephone didn't come home Demeter went out looking for her but didn't find her , She then realized who had taken her and took har anger out on a little boy
She then went to Zeus for help, at first Zeus denied then he finally gave in. He sent Hermes to retrieve Persephone from Hades
Hades was trying his best to please Persephone , but he was also trying to get her to eat so she could stay with him. But she refused to eat anything
The little boy who was killed by Demeter came to Persephone and fed her six pomegranate seeds and once Hermes can to rescue her he told Hades
