STRANGER IN THE NIGHT ~ 1932.06.19
as the steamer was was pulling out from the Gumwi River trading post, a
stranger hailed Captain Barry, asking the whereabouts of Tarzan of the
Apes. Directed to the village of the Al-Alba tribe, the young man sought
out the masked priestess, Lenida, from whom he learned that Tarzan had
just departed. Picking up the trail, the youth saw Tarzan swing high into
the trees. And that night, as the ape-man slept, the stranger crawled toward
him. Silently, he purloined the weapons of the Lord of the Jungle. Then,
hidden in ambush, the stranger waited until dawn. Through is binoculars,
he saw Tarzan arise in amazement, looking for his lost weapons.
Through the day he trailed the ape-man at a safe
distance, and saw him tear the sliver of rock that he was to weld into
a knife. That night when Tarzan was thrusting the stone into the fire to
fashion a knife of his own, the stranger watched from the tree above. Then,
drawing his bow, he sent the arrow to Tarzan's feet. Almost on top of the
arrow he followed, leaping through the air with a wild shout. Tarzan was
about to strike when he recognized . . . his own son, Korak the Killer.
