Standing in the center of a larger arena was a young youth whose faith was in the balances. Spectators raise steely on all sides directly in front of him awaiting his death. In front of him was two massive doors behind one were life and bliss, behind another lies a man-eating beast.
The choice he makes of the two doors solely depending on a Semi-Barbaric princess. Whose train of thought might be different from that of a person who is sound of mind. Being of her
background, she would easily have led the youth to the door of the beast. Her choice would reflect these three reasons her jealousy, upbringing and her pride.
Jealousy can consume a person and alter their frame of mind. In the passage, the princess’s and the youth’s love was described to be very deep and intense. This kind of intensity may cause a person to experience temporary insanity. Her insanity may have been ...view middle of the document...
The king was a semi-barbarian, who took great delight and satisfaction in the shedding of innocent men blood. His
fervent and imperious ways were in instilled in her since birth. Knowing the princess’s nature, the
king did not just “happen” to find out about their affair it was planned. The fact was obvious, her
choice in men was not one of which her father would approve. The discovery was a perfect way
to ride her of the youth. She had no future. This passage has even implied that she took pleasure in attending and was so terribly interested. Her interest was not to see her lover with another
woman but to see him being ripe apart by the savage relentless beast.
Lastly, her pride would have been hurt. Being royalty, a princess would have standards
and responsibility to uphold. A king’s daughter should not associate with peasants. Lead alone
has an affair with one. What better way then to send him to his death, By doing this she would
gain the respect back from her father back and the kingdom would soon forget her behavior.
Concluding with these three reason her jealousy, pride and your upbringing this story
would have had an alternate ending. While the young man was reaching his hand to open the right
door, he changed his mind. As his heart was tightened with the strong love of the princess, he

the left door and opened it. A few minutes after, a beautiful, lovely lady came out. Then the young
man knew that he was betrayed by his lover, the one he loved and the one for which he could die.
When the symphony started playing, the young man walked with the fairy lady who just came out
from the left door upon the path of blossom flowers. He kissed the lovely lady tenderly and
married her without hesitation. Some could say that the young man did not die because of his real
love and strong heart. The princess lost her lover because she was selfish if she loved him truly
she must let him go and see him alive with happiness.
