Cupid makes sure that Psyche promises not to look at him every night when he comes to her bed, and calls himself a "monster". But Psyche is convinced that she must see what he looks like, for what if he truly is a monster? So, she lights a lamp and goes to his bed and looks at him. Amazed by his beauty, she drips oil on him and wakes him up. She broke his trush and he fled.
