  • You must go pierce Psyches, the kings daughter, with one of your arrows.
  • "She is beautiful,"Eros thought to himself.
  • "If your husband is to high and mighty to give us a glimpse of his august self, we're plainly not wanted here."
  • There was a king who had three daughters , the youngest, Psyche was so beautiful that Aphrodite grew jealous. Aphrodite called to her son, Eros, to go pierce Psyche with his arrow. For Psyche has been pretending that she is as beautiful as Aphrodite.
  • "Wretched girl, you are not ready to accept love," Eros shouted.
  • Eros flew down to the castle were Psyche lay sleeping in her chamber. He stood looking at her. "She is very beautiful," he thought. He leaned over her, as if he could scratch her shoulder with his arrow. She suddenly awoke to see Eros hovered over her. Her sudden movement startled Eros. The dart slipped and scratched and his own hand. When Eros returned to Olympus to tell his mother what happened, she fell into deep rage and ordered him to leave.
  • "Husband! Husband!" she called.
  • Everyone around Psyche started to fall in love, yet she hadn't. Her parents grew worried and took her to the top of the mountain where the West Winds took her to a castle on Mount Olympus. There she would find her husband. As the nigh grew she had yet to see her husband, she could hear him but couldn't see him. She grew lonely, but the next day her sisters came to visit her.
  • Soon after her sisters were swept away by the West Winds she realized she couldn't wait any longer to see her husband. Later that night, when her husband had fallen asleep, she crept away to see him. She tiptoed to where he was asleep and held the lamp over him. Eros himself was the one she had married. Eros seized up, snatched the lamp, and ran out.
