Dear kelvin2487-ga,

In Mythology, Psyche was a beautiful young princess who was loved by
Cupid. The story first appeared in Lucius Apuleius' novel, The Golden
Ass, but probably came from a folk story.

You can read of her and their love affair on these pages.

If you wish to read a translation of The Golden Ass, you can download
the story in pdf format (or other formats) on this link. On the pdf
you need Chapter 22 (page 36).

I hope this answers your question. If it does not, or the answer is
unclear, then please ask for clarification of this research before
rating the answer. I shall respond to the clarification request as
soon as I receive it.
Thank you

Psyche is the Greek word for the soul. She was loved by Eros (Cupid is
his Latin name) and the tale can be seen as an allegory for the way
that the soul comes to learn erotic love.
