Rash Decision ~ 35.08.18 ~ #232
Alarmed by Sigreda's show of affection, Tarzan hastened to divert her. "You must be hungry," he said. She nodded indifferently; then the jungle lord set forth in search of game and came upon the trail of a mountain antelope. He was happy to quit the ferment of human society, and match speed and wits with this wild creature. Finally he trapped his quarry in the pocket of a ravine and sprang upon it.

Meanwhile, in Tarzan's absence, Sigreda's grief overwhelmed her to the point of utter despair. When he returned, the maiden was gone! And on a tree he found a message scratched on a great leaf. Unable to decipher the Viking script, the ape-man hurried to Thorik, who grasped the message and read:

"I cannot bear the shame of Thorik's deceit I go among the cannibals!" Thorik paled as he continued. "If there is anyone who loves me enough to save me, I shall be happy. Otherwise death will end my suffering!"

"Where is the land of the cannibals?" Tarzan demanded.

"Beyond the inland sea," Thorik replied, "You cannot go there!"


"They devour all who cross their boundaries," said the Viking. "No one can save Sigreda now."

"I shall try!" Tarzan answered grimly.
