He uses the ray again and offers the king the weapons if he allows his daughter to marry him. The man intended the weapons as aids but the king has dreams of conquest. In order to prevent the corruption of the peaceful world, the man destroys the weapons and flees the wrath of the king, leaving behind his lover forever.
