When the queen, aflame with angry humiliation, threatened Tarzan with dreadful punishment for spurning her. . .  the ape-man smiled ironically. "Is it thus you show the love you profess for me? Very well. I await your penalty."

Sigreda admired his stalwart bravery and love once more warmed her heart. How could she think of harming him? "No, no!" she sobbed. "I wish only your happiness. Go, Tarzan, back to your jungle; and may good fortune attend you ever." Hastily she wrote a command for Bohgdu's release. Then, with aching heart, she bade the jungle lord a fervent farewell.

Departing, Tarzan told her. "Thorik loves you truly. I hope you will restore him to your favor."

In the courtyard, he encountered Thorik and related what had happened. "Forgive me," the Viking begged, "for ever doubting your friendship."

Tarzan saw Sybil, too, chatting coquettishly with a warrior. "We go," the ape-man said. Sybil smiled. "I am happy here."

By the queen's order, Bohgdu was freed. "We go to my tribe," said the ape as they plunged into the jungle.

Many days they traveled westward until they came to Bohgdu's forest home, where Tarzan was unknown. Though long absent, Bohgdu was received with strange hostility. "This Tarzan," he said, "Tarzan man, but Tarzan friend."

"All men enemies! growled Kon-gah, giant king of the tribe. "Kon-gah kill Tarzan!"
