Minos Eros and Psyche Venus (Aphrodite), was envious and jealous of the beauty of Psyche, a mortal girl. She asked her son, Eros (Cupid), to use one of his golden arrows while Psyche sleeps, so Venus could place a vile creature for her when she awakes that she would then fall in love with. Eros agreed to do this task after a long debate. Eros flew to Psyche's room at night, becoming invisible. When he slowly approaches her, he readies one of his golden arrows, but before he can pierce her shoulder, Psyche awakens. She startles him, looking into his eyes even though he is invisible, causing him to scratch himself with his own arrow, falling deeply in love with her. Because of this, he is unable to continue his mission. He later returns to Venus, telling her of the news, which enrages her. Venus then places a curse on Psyche, which prevents her from meeting a suitable husband. Eros, greatly upset, decides that as long as Psyche is cursed, he will no longer shoot arrows, which causes the fall of the Temple of Venus. A.K.A. Cupid! The Story Bonus: Story of Eros and Psyche
