THE TRAIL ~ 1933.12.17
day his delirium passed, Prince Kamur went to his father to demand the
hand of Queen Nikotris in marriage. When told the queen had fled with Tarzan,
Kamur, in violent rage, throttled news of their whereabouts out of the
king. As he left his father's tent, he saw a riderless horse dashing among
the tents. It was the horse upon which Tarzan had escaped from the Ibeks.
Following the fresh prints of the horse's trail across the desert Kamur
traced them to the jungle.
After a long while he came in sight of the hut in the
trees. As he called, Nikotris came out of the hut with the boy Hotep. Nikotris,
her pride outraged by treatment at the hands of the Ibeks, refused to answer
the pleas of the prince. Kamur started to climb the vine to reach her,
but the vine broke under his great weight. When Kamur fell and lay still,
Nikotris swung herself down to his side and Hotep followed. But Kamur was
not badly hurt, and soon opened his eyes. He rose, grasped Nikotris in
his arms, and fled with her through the jungle. Hotep followed, screaming
Soon afterward, Tarzan returned to find the hut in
the trees empty. In the far distance he heard the battle cry of a great
ape and the voice of Nikotris screaming, "Tarzan!"
