Diana and Endymion
Diana is the goddess of the moon. One summer night, she saw a young man, Endymion. Endymion was in a sound sleep under the moonlight. He was very handsome, so Diana fell in love with him right away. She then kissed him on the eyes. Because of the kiss, Endymion could live forever, and the goddess could see his handsome young face every night.
