Psyche's sisters came to visit her one day. They convinced her that her husband was a monster since he wouldn't let her see him. She became worried and decided to sneak a peak. During the night, she lit a candle and saw her husband was Cupid! Her love for her husband grew.
Cupid woke and saw that his wife had betrayed him. He was heartbroken and burnt by hot oil. He flew away.
Psyche wanted her husband back so she went to Venus. Venus was upset that Psyche broke her son's heart so she sent her on impossible quests.
First, Venus told Psyche to sort a pile of seeds by nightfall. Psyche felt defeated until many ants came to help her sort.
Second, Psyche was sent to collect golden wool from a herd of sheep. She was told to collect a small portion from each sheep.
Psyche couldn't cross the river to get to the sheep but Cupid secretly persuaded the River God to help his love.
