Blood Warrior ~ 1935.06.02 ~ #221
the fierce fighting man rushed upon them, Tarzan and Bohgdu leaped instinctively
to the trees. Tarzan commanded the ape to run to Sybil's aid in case the
warrior should be the vanguard of a hostile horde. Then the ape-man leaped
full upon his mysterious foe, who cried out in some strange language. Immediately
they were locked in titanic combat, for Tarzan had never met a stronger,
bolder opponent. They fell to the ground and rose again; their muscles
writhed and tightened; they swayed and struggled in savage conflict.
But at last the jungle lord, strongest and nimblest of
men, wrested the sword from the hands of his antagonist. The stranger,
however, did not flee. Instead, he drew himself erect, waiting to be slain
by his conqueror. Tarzan admired this brave fighter who preferred death
to flight; and he flung down the sword in token of peace. Then the warrior
did a strange thing. With his small dagger he pricked his palm until it
bled. He signaled Tarzan to do likewise. Then they clasped hands and their
blood mingled warmly. Thus did Tarzan of the apes become a "blood-brother"
of the mysterious warrior, each recognizing the noble qualities of the
other. Then the warrior pointed westward, indicating that there roamed
enemies who could test their combined strength!
