"Happy is he among men upon earth who has seen these mysteries!
It is generally accepted among historical scholars that the cult of Demeter and Persephone, or Kore, existed in Greece and the surrounding Mediterranean islands long before the traditional Olympian gods became entrenched. Her origins are Cretan . Like Aphrodite, the mother and daughter goddess represent a matriarchal form of fertility worship in the forms of crops and nature, and through this the cycle of birth, growth and death. This myth, however, has taken hold of imaginations from its evolutions into the Eleusinian mysteries of Ancient Greece, to the paintings of Victorian Europe, to today, each with their own distinctive takes and emphases on the story. Perhaps it is the fact that we know so little about the original tale of Persephone the daughter of Demeter, goddess of fertility, snatched

"Mommy, look! Such a cute dolly!"
You've heard these lines a thousand times for heaven knows how long. Little girls would always drop by that certain doll shop almost every day. A small smile crept on your face as you saw their innocent giggles and pleads to their mothers for them to buy one of the doll displayed, perhaps they would buy you.
You sighed as another young girl got her request rejected by her mother. You honestly want to get out of the shop because it's all boring and stuffy. Among the all other dolls, you were different. You were alive.
Suddenly, a blonde man with long hair and blue eyes stopped by the glass window you were displayed in. You blushed as he inspected you closely, putting his hand below his chin as if he's considering on buying you. 'Is this it? Am I getting out?'

Three months had passed. Three months, which Alfred had no idea had passed. Everything just seemed longer, seemed shorter. He wasn't keeping track of time in the sense that he used to. Now, he only memorized dates when bills were due and when the stuff was being sold.
Other than that, his sense of time had escaped him.
He was drinking a lot more than usual for him, and for that reason, he didn't smoke as often. He didn't know if that was a healthier substitute. It probably wasn't. But when did Alfred ever care about what happened to his body? That's why he was involved in all these things in the first place. Because he simply didn't care.
Did that mean he was suicidal?

The rest of the day went fine. We talked a lot and I found out she loved playing hide and seek. She also loves the color red.

But tonight, they were filled with children in colorful costumes and teenagers looking to make some trouble. It was Halloween. And every dressed up child that Casey passed made him regret where he was driving even more. Shiloh had somehow pulled him into going trick or treating today, which was nearly impossible for someone to do. The raven absolutely hated trick or treating and hadn't done it since he was around the age of ten. But, Casey just couldn't say no to Shiloh. Maybe it was his baby blue eyes, staring into whatever goodness was left in his soul. Or perhaps it was the simple fact that Casey was growing very fond of the boy.
