Once, Apollo saw Cupid taking the arrow to play. He impolite warned Cupid : \"Feeds! The arrow is the very
dangerous thing; the child ought not to play.\" Aboriginal Cupid has two extremely special arrows.
The person who is shot by the golden arrow, will kindle a fire of love. If the leaden ones shot a person,
will extremely loathe the love.
Cupid heard what Apollo said, felt very uncomfortable. He shot the golden arrow to Apollo while he
does not pay attention. Apollo’s heart had the intense hope immediately to the love. Just this time,
came a beautiful young girl called Daphne. Mischievous Cupid shot the leaden arrow to Daphne.
Daphne changes immediately extremely loathes the love.
This time,Apollo falls in love deeply with Daphne, expresses admire immediately to her.
But Daphne said with anger \"Gets out of the way! I hate love!\"then ran away at once.
Apollo chased her hardily, and loudly yells: \"I am not your personal enemy, and is not the wild animal,
why you has to avoid me?\" Although Apollo did not stop shouting to Daphne, she still acted as not heard,
continued to escape.
For several minutes past, Daphne felt tired, and sat on ground. Later she saw Apollo overtaking,
Daphne shouts: \"Help! Help !\"
At that very moment, Daphne’s father heard Daphne’s sound, and turn her into Grecian laurel.
Daphne’s beautiful hairs turned to the leaves, her wrist turned to the branch, two legs turned to the bole,
feet and toes became the tree root, deeply dug in the earth.
Though Daphne turned to the Grecian laurel, Apollo still loved her.
Perhaps it is why Grecian laurel is loved by people.
