WILL OF THE GODS ~ 1933.04.23
jungle rang with Tarzan's victory cry -- the wild cry of the bull ape a
the kill -- as numa lay dead at his feet. deep in the jungle the horde
heard the shout of their king and came hastening to him. Tarzan meanwhile
had swung into the tree where he had -- for her own safety -- left Nikotris
tied. When the tribe had gathered, Tarzan instructed them that Nikotris
was his she-ape, and it meant death to anyone who touched her.
He leaped from the tree with Nikotris in his arms and landed in the
midst of the tribe. Not pausing, he raced for water to revive the unconscious
princess. As he came to the river a great shout of joy went up from the
barge. The Egyptians thought the gods had answered their prayers in sending
Tarzan and the apes back to them. But when Tarzan had delivered the princess
to her handmaidens, he turned to go. Desperately the Egyptians pleaded
with him to stay, but he understood no word.
After her physician had revived her, the princess demanded to be led
to the ape-man. She clung to him and said, "It is the command of the gods
that you remain with us always. Our people need you. The gods have spoken."
