The Legacy of Psyche

Psyche was such a beautiful maiden that she made Venus jealous, and Venus wanted her to fall in love with a very ugly man. So she told her son Eros, or Cupid, to shoot her with an arrow of love so she would fall in love with a gruesome person. Eros was about to shoot her when he began to admire her beauty and cut himself with his arrow, making him fall in love with Psyche. He lured her away from her home, and used nature to bring her towards his home, of which he only visited her at night. He said that she could remain and do whatever she pleased, but she could not see his true form, her curiousity got the best of her (along with her sisters wanting to know who her husband was), and Eros was so frustrated that he left her. Psyche traveled into Venus’ kingdom, and Venus said that Eros would come back to her if she would do so many outrageous tasks for her. The last chore was one that required her not to open a box of death , she became to curious, again, and the box casted a deep sleep on her. Eros revived her with a kiss where she proved herself worthy of his love, and she was made into a goddess.
