Emanated = came out from

Retribution = revenge

Impartial = not taking sides, fair

Aesthetic = having to do with how attractive things are

Moiety -- depends on the context.  Usually means a subdivision within a tribe.

 

Apple of his eye = someone's favorite, something he is really proud of.

Poetic justice = when someone gets "what is coming to them" or what they deserve.

a) Where did the king sit in the arena? He had the best seat in the house, of course.
b) Did the tiger come out of the same door each 'trial'? Nope.  It was a random selection--sometimes out one door, sometime out the other.
c) Did the princess like the lady who had been chosen for her lover's 'trial'? Give reasons. She despised her.  They'd had a little incident in the past; however, the princess primarily hated her because she's a barbaric and supremely jealous woman.
d) How did the princess indicate to her lover the door of her choice? A slight move of one hand.
e) What had the princess seen in her dreams? Both scenarios--her lover being eaten alive or married.
f) Did the princess expect her lover to ask her to indicate which door he should choose? Absolutely,  Just as he expected her to have found out the secret and tell him which door to pick.
g) Why did no one else in the arena notice that the princess was communicating with her lover? It says it was a subtle gesture, and I'm sure they were all enthralled by this marvelous young man standing before them in the arena.

Where did the king sit in the arena?

He was sitting in the center of the Arena right next to his beautiful daughter.

Did the tiger come out of the same door every trial?

No, he came out different doors every time there was a different trial.

Did the princess like the lady who had been chosen to her lover’s trial? Give reasons.

No, the princess did not like the women that lay behind the doors. In fact, she hated her because she thought that the women fancied her lover.

How did the princess indicate to her lover the door of her choice ?

The way in which the princess indicated the door in which she wanted her lover to open is by making a slight gesture with her right arm.

What had the princess seen in her dreams?

I don’t know.

Did the princess expect her lover to ask her to indicate which door he should choose?

yes, and she was right.

Do you think women ever committed  crimes in the kingdom? If they did, how do you think they were tried?

I do think that women committed crimes in the kingdom, and as a punishment they would be forced away from whatever family that they had to be put behind one of the doors that will be opened so hen they would have to marry  someone he didn’t want to.

write a description of the king’s arena

it had two doors that contained something in them that could change one’s life forever, wether they liked t or not. The arena was large and empty besides the seats that surrounded the arena itself.
