The dark boy, she learned quickly, loved when she touched the earth. She knew the earth was his father, but when she trailed her fingers through fresh soil, it was the boy whose sigh she heard, as though she ran her fingers through his black hair. She wondered if she would ever have the courage or the opportunity to attempt such in truth.
The boy was persistent but not bold in his desire for her attention, and when he longed for it most, he would come as near the opening of his hiding place as he dared and sing the stone-song to her. The words fell upon her like fragrant petals, albeit in a strange tongue, and she would press her back to a tree and listen as every bird in the vicinity fell silent to hear him too.
The love story of Katniss's parents as a gentler retelling of Hades and Persephone, where tenderness and longing take the place of abduction and deceit. (This may ultimately continue on to Peeta and Katniss, as Alyssum is really more like Demeter, putting Katniss in line to be a very interesting Persephone indeed.)
