Battle of the Broadswords ~ 35.06.23 ~ #224
the Viking slowly balanced himself on his narrow perch, preparing to cut
the rope, Tarzan acted with lightning swiftness. The ape-man twined a leg
in the rope and swung backward head down. As he swung, Tarzan speedily
stripped his bow from his shoulder and set an arrow to the string. The
surprised Viking stepped back -- but too late. The shaft found its mark!
The stranger flung up his arms, cried out and toppled into the chasm.
But danger was not past, for now Tarzan heard cries from
above. He scrambled up the rope to the summit of the cliff. There two comrades
of the fallen Viking charged down upon him. Again an arrow whirred, but
it splintered against the shield of the first warrior, while the second
bore down on Tarzan at close quarters. The ape-man dodged, leaned over
, and swept up the sword of the Viking he had slain. Quickly he brought
the broadsword into play. But it was to him an unfamiliar weapon, nor was
he protected by shield. And slowly the two fierce vikings forced him back
to the very brink of the fatal chasm.
