  • Demeter and Persephone
  • Retold by Scarlett Alcorn
  • What are you doing?!
  • Persephone was a goddess, a young and lovely one in fact. She is the daughter of Demeter, the goddess of the Earth. Demeter made the plants grow.
  • One day, Persephone was sitting down, playing with the crisp, morning flowers. Hades, god of the underworld, flew up out of the ground abruptly. He started marching over to Persephone, who was shocked at what just happened.
  • Hades has captured my Persephone! Get her back! Get her back! If I don't get her back, every plant will die. Nothing will grow.
  • For Persephone has ate pomegranate seeds. We'll have to make a deal with Hades. For every seed she ate, that is how many months she'll stay with Hades.
  • Hades threw Persephone in the wagon and ran back in to the underworld portal. In the process she lost her belt.
  • Demeter was worried about Persephone so she went to look for her. When she goes to the field of flowers, she can only find Persephone's belt. Demeter knew what had happened.
  • Demeter went to Zeus for help. She asked him to get Persephone back. Persephone has eaten pomegranate seeds, but only a few. Because of this, she can't come back up from the underworld. Hades, Demeter, and Zeus made a deal.
  • Half of a year, Persephone will be with her mother. The other half, with Hades. When Demeter has her daughter, everything is growing and alive. When she's will Hades, everything dies, anything is rarely living.
