Sea Battle ~ 35.09.08
Erik's fleet maneuvered to encircle King Ruvald's Armada. The archers and
spearmen swung into action. A rain of missiles filled the air, and Tarzan's
arm flew like a shuttle as he fixed arrows to his bow. But the speeding
shafts did not halt the relentless progress of the stout-armored foe.
Now Tarzan called to Ruvald who shouted to his oarsmen
and the ship darted toward Erik's vessel. A quick turn -- and the prow
of the Thalgaard ship plowed through the enemy craft. Many of the Vikings
were hurled into the sea and dragged beneath the water by the weight of
their armor. Erik clung to a fragment of wreckage until he was hauled aboard
another of his vessels. And now seeking to duplicate Tarzan's strategy,
Erik ordered his craft to cut through his rival's flagship. As the ape-man
turned to advise Ruvald the Thalgaard monarch fell wounded and speechless
to the deck.
Knowing that every moment was precious, Tarzan took up
the sword of the fallen king, and assumed command. At his order, the ship
veered and drew alongside the enemy craft. "Lash the ships together!" Tarzan
cried. When his order had been obeyed, his voice rang out once more: "Aboard
the enemy! Fight to the death!"
