The Fable of Cupid on Valentine’s Day
Once upon a time there was a king with three daughters. They were all beautiful, but by far the most beautiful was the youngest, Psyche. She was so beautiful that people stopped worshipping Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. Venus was very jealous, and asked her son Cupid (the boy with the arrows) to make Psyche fall in love with a horrible monster.
When Cupid saw how beautiful Psyche was, he dropped the arrow meant for her and pricked himself. This caused Cupid to fall in love with Psyche – making this fable a popular Valentine’s Day story.
Nobody wanted to marry Psyche, despite her great beauty. Her parents consulted an oracle, and were told that she was destined to marry a monster. The oracle told Psyche’s parents to release her to fulfill her destiny. That night, the west wind carried her away to a palace where she was served by invisible servants. Psyche’s new husband visited her, and told her that he would always visit her by night and she must never try to see him.
Although her invisible husband was kind and gentle, and the invisible servants attended to her every need, Psyche grew homesick. She persuaded her husband to allow her sisters to visit her. When they saw how Psyche lived, they became very jealous. They talked Psyche into peeking at her husband, saying that he was a monster who was fattening her up to be eaten and that her only chance of safety was to kill him.
That night, Psyche was ready for her husband’s visit – she had a lamp, a bow, and an arrow. When she saw how beautiful her husband – Cupid – was, she was so surprised that she accidentally shot the arrow into his shoulder. Cupid immediately left Psyche, and the magnificent palace disappeared in a puff of smoke.
Psyche roamed around looking for Cupid, eventually in desperation approaching his mother, Venus. Still angry, the goddess made Psyche work like a servant. When Cupid found out, and he persuaded Jupiter to order Venus to stop her persecution of Psyche. Cupid and Psyche got married and lived happily ever after.
