I must find out what is behind each door because I will not be at peace until I do!
Long ago, there was a semi-barbaric King.When one was accused of a crime of sufficient importance, their fate was decided in a vast amphitheatre. They had to choose between two identical soundproof doors.One with a severely fierce tiger, and the other with a fair lady whom they must marry.
The King had a beautiful daughter whom he loved more than anything.Among his courtiers was a handsome and brave young man who the princess fell in love with.They had a happy,satisfying love affair for months until they got caught by the King.The princess's lover was immediately thrown into prison.
In preparation of the trial day, the Kingdom's tiger cages were searched for the fiercest beast,and the fairest maiden.The princess was fervent and imperious.Through gold and the power of a woman's will,she found out what was behind each door.The secret that nobody knew.
The appointed day arrived and it was time for the young man to choose his fate.He walked into the arena.The custom was to bow before the King, but he was too focused on the Princess.He realized that she had the answer he needed and notioned for her to give him a sign.She raised her hand,and made a quick subtle shift to the right.
Without the slightest hesitation,he went to the door on the right, and opened it.
Did the tiger come out of that door,or did the lady? The author leaves you to decide!
