There once was a mighty king. This king had a rather barbaric justice system. He presented each prisoner with two doors. Behind one was a fair maiden; the other held a tiger.
The king had a daughter, the princess. She was in love with a handsome young man.
But the king found out about the lovers, and not approving of the man, sent him to the dungeon. He would be forced to make the choice between the two doors.
However, the princess was able to discover which door held the tiger and which held the lady. The only issue was- she had seen the lady with her man before, and the princess could not go on if the two were married.
The moment arrived when the man looked up at the princess and she was faced with a choice. Let her lover die, or let him marry another lady? In a split second desicion, the princess flicked her hand to the side.
In a second, the door was opened, and out popped a tiger to devour the man. He was dead in seconds, You see, the secret of this story is that the princess was smarter than you think. Knowing this entire situation would play out, she made a man with knowledge and power fall in love with her. By killing him, she eliminated a threat. The princess was never in love.
