The Lady or the Tiger? by Frank Stockton

In today’s episode we head back to semi-barbaric times, where a king has come up with an unusual system for determining guilt or innocence. All is well, until the princess’s lover is discovered and doomed to choosing a fate between two doors. Behind one door is a beautiful woman and behind the other a tiger. Which will he choose? 

Today’s story is Lady or the Tiger? by Frank R Stockton.
