The Discourager of Hesitancy

Riddle me this....

A young man requests to be married to one of the beautiful women of a semi-barbaric kingdom. The king grants his wish, only there is a clause: the young man must be blindfolded during the ceremony so he does not see his bride and hears her voice only once. After the ceremony, the young man’s blindfold is removed. Forty women stand in front of him, only one is his bride. He must choose correctly or he will instantly loose his life. Our story is a follow up to last week’s story by Frank R Stockton—The Discourager of Hesitancy.

Music: Oxygenic by Lucention
