Dester Molu, white god of the Waioris, pronounced sentence of doom, Tarzan's
keen eye darted about him. But he saw no hope of escape. Suddenly his sharp
ears caught Bohgdu's guttural tones coming stealthily form the roof high
above him. "Master, I am here." Tarzan raised his voice in a chant.
"He sings my praises," Dester told the savages; but in
truth the captive thus disguised his orders to the ape. Bohgdu obeyed.
He crept to the hole through which the Great Hall was illuminated, and
covered it with his giant body. When the Waioris saw the lights so weirdly
fading, they were stricken with dismay, for they believed that Tarzan was
working some evil magic. In the murky gloom, the ape-man leaped through
the ghostly circle of terrified warriors.
The one door was closed, so Tarzan raced to the wall with
the swiftness of an antelope and mounted the wood framework. As he swung
along the rafters of the steep roof, bullets from Dester's gun screamed
and thumped around his shadowy form. At last he came to the opening. Bohgdu
moved aside and Tarzan raised himself through. Then the ape and ape-man
glided dizzily down the precipitous slope toward freedom. When they slid
from the eaves, they alighted on sheaves of palm leaves seemingly spread
on the ground. But the leaves mysteriously gave away and Tarzan and Bohgdu
were plunged into a deep, dark pit!
