Tuti is telling Khujasta a story about how the son of a pious man became a king.
On the final night of the Tuti-nama, Khujasta asks Tuti the parrot if she can leave to visit her lover. As the story ends, Khujasta’s husband, Maymun, returns home from his journey. Her affair is revealed, and she is ultimately killed. Maymun shaves his head, dons the robes of an ascetic, and enters a hermitage.
