Against her father's protestations, Sheherazade volunteered to spend one night with the King. Once in the King's chambers, Sheherazade asked if she might bid one last farewell to her beloved sister, Dinazade, who had secretly been prepared to ask Sheherazade to tell a story during the long night. The King lay awake and listened with awe as Sheherazade told her first story. The night whiled away, and Scheherazade stopped in the middle of the story. The King asked her to finish, but Sheherazade said there was not time, as dawn was breaking. So, the King spared her life for one day to finish the story the next night. So the next night, Sheherazade finished the story, and then began a second, even more exciting tale which she again stopped halfway through, at dawn. So the King again spared her life for one day to finish the second story.

And so the King kept Sheherazade alive day by day, as he eagerly anticipated the finishing of last night's story. At the end of one thousand and one nights, and one thousand stories, Sheherazade told the King that she had no more tales to tell him. During these one thousand and one nights, the King had fallen in love with Sheherazade, and had had three sons with her. So, having been made a wiser and kinder man by Sheherazade and her tales, he spared her life, and made her his Queen.
