Fire! ~ 35.09.15 ~ #236

When the ships had been lashed together, Tarzan led his Viking fighting men aboard the enemy vessel. With the ape-man in the vanguard growling like a beast, the battle was joined with savage fury. Steadily Tarzan's valiant cohorts drove back the foe toward the prow of the ship. Then Erik summoned another ship, leaped aboard wit the remnant of his company, and ordered it drawn away.

But now a fearsome shower of firebrands began to rain upon the vessel which Tarzan and his men had captured. Quickly it took fire and threatened the flagship of the Thalgaard fleet even as it was cut adrift.

"Bring your craft to the stern," he shouted to them, "and drive my ship forward."

Thus propelled, Tarzan guided the burning vessel into the midst of the enemy fleet. Two of Erik's ships burst into leaping roaring flames. But now, as the fire swept back toward him, the ape-man was forced to jump for his life.

Erik saw him and cried! "Archers to the fore! Let loose your arrows upon the savage."
