THE SULTAN OF SANABAR ~ 34.08.05
the long night Tarzan pitted his strength against the angry sea, with little
hope that he and the maiden would ever see land again. But as dawn filtered
through the darkness, the sea grew calm, and the rising sun revealed in
the distance a city of dazzling splendor. They came at last to the white
beach, where they rested and recovered their strength. Then they went into
the city to seek out a caravan bound for Talarsan, where the maiden's father
ruled as sultan. In the bazaar, the girl inquired of a merchant what city
this was, and he answered: "Our city is called Sanabar."
In Terror, the girl whispered to Tarzan: "Here dwells
the Sultan Bahdin, who is at war with my father!"
They hurried to escape from the city, for if the maiden
were discovered she would be taken prisoner. But as they fled a mounted
herald patrolled the streets, crying: "To your knees! The Sultan rides
The people knelt and bowed for the populace was forbidden
to look upon the face of their monarch. But Tarzan stood upright. He bowed
to no man! Then when the royal procession passed, the maiden could not
resist her desire to gaze upon the fierce visage of her father's enemy.
The Sultan's cruel eyes fell upon the two strangers and
he demanded: "Who are they who dare to scorn the royal edict? Seize them!"
The guards advanced to seize them, but Tarzan stood ready to resist the
might of the Sultan to save the maiden and himself from capture!"
