Trapped By Lions! ~ 35.11.17 ~ #245
to spare herself the sight of Tarzan's death, Sigreda ran to face the raging
lions, the ape-man raced after her. He expected to save neither her nor
himself from that savage pack, but his fighting spirit impelled him to
battle. One lion swifter that the rest was almost upon the Viking maid,
Tarzan swept her aside and faced the charging beast. Then the jungle lord
stepped lightly away and leaped suddenly upon the carnivore's back as it
rushed past. The surprised beast reared upright. Tarzan's left hand gripped
its mane while his right drove his knife into the lion's throat. As the
brute fell, Tarzan leaped clear, hastened to Sigreda and lifted her in
his arms while the other beasts raced at her.
Whirling now, he ran toward the far end of the arena,
handicapped by his human burden. The cannibals howled with glee at the
thrilling spectacle, knowing that there was no escape from the pit of death.
But the ape-man's keen eyes alighted upon the open cages, from which the
lions had been released to kill him. With a supreme burst of energy he
dashed to a cage and thrust Sigreda inside. Then as a sharp claw scraped
his back, the ape-man darted into another cage and closed the door. Now
the fugitives were captives of the lions! Eventually, Tarzan knew he must
fight the whole pack to conquer -- or to die!
