Once upon a time in Olympus there lived a girl named Persephone, daughter of Demeter, goddess of the harvest. Demeter loved Persephone deeply and Persephone made all the flowers grow. Demeter loved Persephone so much, she never wanted Persephone to be hurt and forbid any man to marry her.
One day Hades spied on Persephone and gazing upon her immediately fell in love. Hades deeply desired to make Persephone fall in love with him. His plan was to capture and bring her to the underworld, Hades home.
Hades plan succeeded but Persephone hated the underworld and locked herself in her room for weeks. She refused to leave her room and ignore Hades. Persephone was very angry and missed her mother. It was dark and gloomy in the underworld and didn't feel like home.
One day Persephone came out of her room and walked by Hades servant who offered her a pomegranate, her favorite fruit. Persephone hadn't eaten in weeks and was hungry. Little did she know, the pomegranate would cost her something dear in the future.
Hermes, God of Thieves, came to rescue Persephone from the underworld. Hades knew he had to let Persephone free, even though he loved her so dearly. Before leaving, Hermes asked if Persephone had eaten anything. Persephone told Hermes she had eaten 2/3 of a pomegranate.
Since Persephone had eaten food from the underworld, Zeus decided that 2/3 of the year would with Hades and 1/3 of the year with Demeter. While Persephone was away, Demeter was so angry, she wouldn't allow any crops grow during the winter. Ironically, while spending all this time with Hades, Persephone ended up falling in love him, living happily ever after - The End
