Olvass bele a Percy Jackson's Greek Gods-ba! - 2. rész

Megérkezett a várva-várt második részlet a Percy Jackson's Greek Gods kalauzból, melyet egyenesen a Percy Jackson-könyvek brit kiadója, a Puffin Books osztott meg a lelkes Percy-fankal. 

Az első részt már fordítom, amivel legkésőbb holnap délutánra megleszek! Sőt, talán még ma és akkor az új rész holnap várható (mivel rövidebb)! :)
Persephone Marries Her Stalker
 (Or, Demeter, the Sequel)

Sure, she was pretty. She had her mother’s long blonde hair and Zeus’s sky-blue eyes. She didn’t have a care in the world. She was sure the whole world had been invented just for her pleasure. I guess when your parents are both gods you can come to believe that. have to be honest. I never understood what made Persephone such a big deal. I mean, for a girl who almost destroyed the universe, she seems kind of meh.
She loved the outdoors. She spent her days roaming the countryside with her nymph and goddess friends, wading in streams, picking flowers in sunlit meadows, eating fresh fruit right off the tree – heck, I’m just making this up, but I’m guessing that’s what a teenage goddess would have done before smartphones were invented.
The thing is, Persephone didn’t have much else going for her. She wasn’t all that bright. She wasn’t brave. She didn’t really have any goals or hobbies (other than the flower-picking thing). She was just kind of there, enjoying life and being a spoiled, sheltered, overprivileged kid. I guess it’s nice work if you can get it, but I didn’t grow up that way, so I don’t have much sympathy for her.
Still, Demeter lived for her daughter, and I can’t blame her for being over-protective. Demeter had had enough bad experiences with those sneaky male gods. After all, Persephone had come into the world because of a snake ambush. The kid was lucky she wasn’t hatched from an egg.
Of course, since Persephone was declared off-limits, all the male gods noticed her and thought she was incredibly hot. They all wanted to marry her, but they knew Demeter would never allow it. Anytime one of them got close, Demeter appeared out of nowhere with her dragon-drawn chariot and her wicked golden sword.
Most of the gods let it go. They decided to find some safer goddess to date.
But one god couldn’t get Persephone out of his mind – namely Hades, lord of the Underworld.
Perfect match, right? An old gloomy dude who lives in the world’s largest cave filled with the souls of the dead, and he falls in love with a pretty young girl who likes sunlight and flowers and the Great Outdoors. What could possibly go wrong?
