Aphrodite and the Weasel

Author: Aesop

Once upon a time a weasel fell in love with a young and charming boy. But the boy abandoned the weasel. Heartbroken, the weasel went to Aphrodite and begged the goddess to turn it into a woman.

Aphrodite, the goddess of passion and compassion, took pity on the weasel and quickly transformed it into a beautiful maiden. When the boy saw the transformed weasel, he fell in love with her and took her home with him.

While the couple stood in the bridal chamber, Aphrodite was curious to see if the weasel had transformed as well. So she snuck in and released a mouse in the middle of the room. Suddenly, the weasel left the boy and started chasing the mouse. When the goddess saw this, she was very disappointed - so she decided to make the weasel back the way it was before!
