Persephone's Kiddnapping

Her side of the story

I am Persephone and this is what I saw when I was kidnapped by Hades and what I think of his reasons and actions.

I was picking flowers when I saw a narcissus, I had to have it. I walked over to the flower when Hades showed up and grabbed me, and took me to the under world. He told me I was beautiful and that he loved me, but I didn't love him, I wanted to go home! I was so angry I didn't eat anything, until Hermes showed up I was just so excited to finally go home that I didn't stop to think that Hades might have been tricking me when he gave me a handful of pomegranate seeds for my journey home, so I ate them and left. When I got back to my mother, Demeter she asked me if I had eaten anything, then I remembered the pomegranate seeds and she told me that I had to go back eventually so I cried. Then my father Zeus made a compromise with Hades that I would go back to the underworld for four months a year. When I come up it's Spring! Even though I hate the underworld I've gotten used to Hades and at least thanks to my father I don't have to stay there forever.
