persephone of enna - part one

The wind was stinging my face as we sped through the Universe. Newly awoken from a previous existence, I felt her arms close tightly around my shoulders as her experienced mind took us on a rather sharp decent. The darkness of what seemed like endless nothingness began to quickly disappear as the gradient curve of our chariot’s path brought us within view of a sparkling, wondrous ball of mist and magic. She whispered her pleasure in my ear as I felt her love and delight for the breathtaking spectacle before us that grew like a living creature viewed in time-lapse.<br>

“This is yours Persephone, you will love Earth as the Earth-girl you are. Home for you now – and safe.” In my stupid innocence I looked at her concentrated face focussed on finding our destination. She seemed happy, sad and afraid all at once and I knew she would not be staying with me there.<br>

She wouldn’t say what I was to be kept safe from, but her fear feared in me. I pressed my frame back against her hoping my affection would translate the longing inside me not to be separated from her. She had given me all I had – my being and my spirit. Hope left me though, and I tried to concentrate on what was about to be bestowed on me as my immediate destiny, with what I could only describe in paradox as excited sadness and complete bewilderment.<br>

We were soaring… A massive light behind us threw stars of glitter from the late afternoon sea below. The glare hurt my eyes and my mind swirled at the feast of colour. Our transport slowed as we approached the looming grey of a jagged and rocky skyline. Eventually our magic chariot was hovering silently in front of a ledge hewn in the rock. The entrance to a cave dwelling that, as I found, was fit out especially for this princess, along with my carer-to-be and my studies for the duration of my ‘immature years’. This information explained so matter-of-fact it felt almost cold to me and my heart ached at Demeter’s approach. <br>
