Long ago there was a beautiful goddess called Demeter and she lived with her gorgeous daughter Persephone They lived in the sunny woods of sicily where Persephone played in the grass and flowers, picking violets until her apron was full. They were always singing and laughing together.
Pluto however was not so lucky! Pluto ruled the kingdom of the underworld which was dark and bitter cold.not one ray of sunshine ever made its way down there. All Pluto wanted was to find a wife but no one wanted to give up the sun, flowers and the glittering sea. Sometimes, he would peep out into the real world and gaze at the gorgeous girls playing in the sun.
One day he looked out in awe as his eyes stared at Persephone picking violets in the sun. "THATS THE ONE " he said. But Pluto did not go to Demeter to ask to marry her daughter: he knew she would say NO! So he harnessed his black chariot and thundered out into the sunlight. He leaned out and snatched Persephone's hair and dragged her in his chariot.
Persephone asked why he had taken her as she did not want to leave her mother. she tried to call out for help but it did not work. Then she summoned the river to send her flowers to her mother to tell her where she is.
Meanwhile, back at the Sicilian woods Demeter started to worry about where her daughter was and started looking for her. when she could not find her she desperately started calling for help.
Then demeter saw something appear in the river and it spoke out persephones message. " Your daughter has been taken by Hades and would like you to find her!" Demeter was furious. " That wicked beast I will go and find my daughter!" she said.
