The man is in the arena nervous for what is going to happen. He is waiting for the princess to tell her which door that he will have to open.
The princess is debating which door that she should tell him to open. She doesn't know if he should let him die or marry the woman.
What is behind that door? Could it be the tiger or the lady? The boy proceeds to head to the door trusting that the princess has chosen the lady. The princess didn't really want him to be with someone else because she knew that she would be jealous. She also didn't want him to die. She was trying to choose quickly that she chose the wrong door.
The boy heads to the door that the princess has pointed to. The door swings open and out hops the tiger. He takes the boy out in one swipe. The crowd all around shrieks. For once a handsome boy is no more. What a tragedy. The princess was in shock for she thought that it was a mistake.
At first the princess weeps. Then she feels a weight come off of her and then realizes that she won't have to worry about being jealous. Her father was satisfied with the death of the boy.
The lady and the princess become best friends and realize that it wasn't worth fighting over a boy. They tell each other that it wasn't meant to be for either of them to be with him. They go on to live happily ever after.
