Darkness To The Kore

Death is what comes to people like a thief in the night, snatching them with no intentions of bringing them back. Death is a nagging parent that you try to outsmart time and time again but no matter how many times you may think you have outsmarted them, in the end they will have the last word. Death is the old friend that nobody likes and yet you cannot live without. Death is many things but I never thought it would be my lover. Kore lives alone with her controlling mother, Demi. She hasn’t seen any other person besides her homeschool teacher since she was a little girl after a mysterious incident happened at school one day that her mother refuses to talk to her about. She keeps her locked away on a farm and only lets her go out occasionally. It isn’t until her cat dies and after picking him up, becomes alive again when she realizes why her mother has locked her away for all these years. She discovers she has the gift of healing. When she confronts her mother about it, her mother reveals to her that they are not human but in fact, Goddesses trapped inside human vessels to protect Kore from the Gods who want to marry her. But things only get worse when one day, as Kore is picking flowers in the meadow, there is an earthquake and she is taken up by this earthquake and falls into the arms of none other than Hades. A modern retelling of the rape of Persephone.

the beginning pulled me in immediately :) good work. 

just a little note jelly17bean shared this with me!
Loving this!I hate Kore's mother, I always hate controlling mothers, fiction or not... based on the summary, I'm guessing the guy in her dream is Hades...
This story sounds great! I've never seen such a plot like this before and I like it. Keep writing :)
I love the name, description, writing style, etcetera etcetera. Not much else to say, haha :) But good job.
