BROKEN VINE ~ 1932.07.17
The vine strained
under the terrific impact as Tarzan caught Korak's body --- and then strong
wood broke. Below were the bolgani who had hurried in hot pursuit. Above
was the beast that had tried to hurl Korak to his death.
As Tarzan fell he reached out desperately for a branch. He caught one
and held on for a second. But the speed of his fall was too great and his
strong hand slipped. But he force of the fall was broken and Tarzan landed
safely upon the ground, still holding Korak unarmed. The bolgani, thirsting
for revenge, surrounded him on all sides. The ape-man usually scorned firearms,
but now with his own weapons left beside the pool, he took his son's pistol,
and examined it to see if it were loaded.
Then he waited for the bolgani to come on. As the first one neared,
he fired. Then the gorilla who had carried Korak off hurled himself from
above toward Tarzan. The ape-man fell under the swift impact -- and the
gorilla tribe advanced to the attack.
