Cupid, the God of Love
爱神丘比特
Cupid is known for making people fall in love with each other by shooting them with arrows.

Part 1
Cupid is the Roman god of love and the son of the goddess Venus. Cupid is known for making people fall in love with each other by shooting them with arrows.

Venus often used Cupid to carry out her schemes. Once Venus was very jealous of a beautiful woman named Psyche. To punish Psyche, Venus asked Cupid to make her fall in love with an old and ugly man. When Cupid saw Psyche, however, he was so amazed by her beauty that he shot himself with his arrow by mistake.

Cupid made Psyche's father agree to let him marry her. However, Cupid didn't allow Psyche to see his face. When Psyche told her sisters, they made her worry that Cupid was actually a monster. One night, Psyche lit a candle and saw that her husband was a beautiful god. But Cupid woke up and was so angry with Psyche that he left her.

Psyche went to Venus and asked for help. Venus gave her a number of difficult tasks to fulfill. For the final task, Venus asked her to go to the underworld to get a box with a beauty elixir inside. On the way back, Psyche opQned the box out of curiosity. This made her fall into a deep sleep. Cupid still loved Psyche, so he rescued her. Afterwards, Zeus was moved by their love and made Psyche a goddess. Psyche and Cupid lived happily ever after.

丘比特是罗马的爱神及女神维纳斯的儿子。丘比特最著名的就是以射爱神的箭来让人们坠人爱河。

维纳斯常利用丘比特来实施她的诡计。有一次,维纳斯十分嫉妒一位名叫赛姬的美女。为了惩罚赛姬,维纳斯叫丘比特让她爱上一名又老又丑的男子。不过当丘比特看见赛姬时,她的美貌让他惊艳不已,以至于他不小心用箭误射自己。

丘比特迫使赛姬的父亲把女儿下嫁给他。然而丘比特却不允许赛姬见到他的庐山真面目。当赛姬向姐姐们提及此事时,她们使得她担心丘比特其实是个怪物。一天夜里,赛姬点燃了蜡烛,看见她的丈夫是一位俊美的天神。但是丘比特醒了过来,盛怒之下离开了赛姬。

赛姬去向维纳斯求助。维纳斯给了她许多艰巨的任务要她完成。到了最后一个任务,维纳斯要她去阴间拿一个装有美貌仙丹的盒子。在回程途中,赛姬因好奇心作祟而打开了盒子。这使得她陷人沉睡之中。因为丘比特仍然爱着赛姬,所以便救了她。后来,天神宙斯被他们的爱情所感动,于是就把赛姬变成女神。赛姬和丘比特从此便过着幸福快乐的日子。
