A man shows at her bedside, murmuring into her ear. She feels his presence, and knows that this is no monster, but her husband.
They are coming to the hill where you disappeared to weep for you, but you must not let them see you no matter what.
I haven't seen my sisters in so long...
Ok, ok, fine. You can see them as long as you don't let them persuade you to find out who I am.
Psyche spent the rest of her day weeping, and her mysterious husband gives her a proposition.
Of course I won't! I would rather die 100 times over than live without you.
Oh, he's away on a hunting expedition.
Psyche's sisters interrogate her on the identity of her mystery man. Green with envy, her sisters plot to ruin her life. They leave, but return the next day.
Where is this husband of yours?
Psyche's heart broke as her sisters filled the grand banquet hall with negativity. As they continued, they advised her to hide a knife and a lamp under her bed so when he falls asleep, she can discover who he really is.
Your husband is not a man. He is the fearful serpent that Apollo's oracle declared he would be.
He may be kind to you now, but he will turn on you and devour you in the night.
Psyche follows through with her sisters' plan and discovers that her husband is Cupid.
