The young man "turned, and with a firm and rapid step he walked across the empty space. Every heart stopped beating, every breath was held, and every eye was fixed immovably upon that man. Without the slightest hesitation, he went up to the door on the right, and opened it."Now what was behind the door may be a surprise. The princess loved the man very much, did she not?

Immediately after opening the right door only a slight crack the man knew that the tiger was there and tried to quickly close the door, but it was too late. The tiger, seeing freedom and dinner, leapt forward and flung open the door with such force that it hurled the man back.Although some may think that at this point the man's life is over, this particular man was always prepared for anything to happen. Before he had been sent away to the king's court he had won the favor of a guard who secretly slipped him a knife. So before the man was thrown from the door he was already reaching for his knife. The tiger immediately, after seeing his prey, leapt high into the air above the man's head so as to pounce on him and in effect-kill him. But we must remember that this is a very different situation just like the accusation of the man. So, he stabbed the tiger right in the eye, killing it instantly.As the crowd saw what had happened they were at first shocked, for this had never happened before. But the king started to applaud the man, and so followed the spectators. The man stood up, dusted himself off, and gazed upon the princess. The king declared that the man be wedded to his daughter right then and there because he had proven himself more than worthy.
