Please Don't Leave Me, I Love You...

Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Persephone took off down the steps. This time she wasn’t going to let Zeus or her mother stop her. She ran straight to Hades, right into his arms. For a moment, he just held her and she felt at home. He pulled out of the embrace slowly. “I have to go.” “Please don’t.” She begged. “ I have to. We will see each other again my love.” Hades kissed her forehead softly and before she could get another word out, he was gone. She didn’t move after he left. It was almost like he was still standing there with her even though he wasn’t. Demeter walked over to her and put her hand on her shoulder. “Come dear.” Her mother said softly. Persephone walked with her mother out of the room. They walked together side by side all the way to her bedroom.
