When Eros saw her though he was entranced by her beauty and pricked his heart instead. He was so in love with her that he erased all memory of what he had done to her and fled.When Aphrodite realized that Eros hadn’t exactly done his job, she sent down her own spell which caused no more suitors to visit Psyche.Further explanation on Aerin’s call.
A trail of ants came to aide her. (they came out of the wall)The Naiads told her to go and pick the fleece from the briers after the sun had set.Eros told her the ways to avoid the dangers of the underworld and also warned her not to open the box once Persephone’s beauty was inside.
Mention quote about once royalty makes them self known they can never go back to the shadows they were in before.Also mention elixir and return.
