The Lord of the Flies, Part 2


Captains log-- July 27, 1953:

After finding the boys on the deserted islandI asked Ralph, "Where are the dead bodies of the boys who were killed?"

Ralph started walking toward Castle Rock where Piggy was killed. "The boy we called Piggy was killed here by Roger but the body washed out into the ocean with Simon's body. There are no bodies here on the island. I want to know what you are going to do to the boys that killed them," Ralph asked me.

"We're not leaving this island until we find the bodies of the boys who were killed,' I replied.

"But, we have to go or else Jack's group will kill us all. He's a savage with no heart and soul in his body. You have to listen to me. You don't know how these boys are. They might escape at night and kill some of your soldiers. Can't you see they would have killed me if you hadn't found us on the island," said Ralph.

"There's no worry about that, ah, ah, what's your name?" I asked.


"Well, they won't hurt us, Ralph, there's too many soldiers on this island with us," I replied.

"What are you going to do to Jack and Roger?" asked Ralph.

"Who are Jack and Roger and why are you so worried about them? What have they done?" I asked.

"They're the ones that are the killers to worry about because they didn't want to be rescued. They're the ones that are violent. They don't care about anything and get upset if someone gets in their way. They might do anything," said Ralph.

"Just take it easy, Ralph, you can sleep with me and the other soldiers if you're so worried about something happening," I said.

"I'm not worried about that. I just don't trust Jack and Roger being loose. I think you should lock them up. It'll be better that way for all of us," said Ralph.

"Alright, if that will make you calm down, I'll do that," I replied.

As the sun was setting, I walked toward the boys who were tied up as prisoners. Ralph was watching from a distance to see what I would do to the boys. I grabbed Robert then asked Ralph, "Which two are Jack and Roger?"

Ralph walked over to the group of boys, but didn't come too close, and he pointed at Roger and Jack.

"Those two to the left by the boy you have in your hand," Ralph replied. I grabbed them and asked, "These two boys?"

"Yes, you have the two savages," said Ralph.

"Alright, I'll do what you asked me to do," I replied.

"What you mean you're going to do what Ralph asked you to do? What are you going to do to me and Roger?" demanded Jack.

"I'm going to lock you boys up. I hear you two are the ones who killed the two boys," I replied.

"Well, Ralph helped us kill Simon, so why don't you lock him up too?" asked Jack.

"Is that so, Ralph? You are just like the other boys yourself, and you want me to lock them up," I accused.

"Look, Jack and Roger and their group were trying to kill me but you found us. Can't you see, they are the ones that, that . .. . I told you before. Do I have to tell you again? They tried to run me out of the forest with a fire to kill me. Those boys standing by Jack were there when Simon was killed. They helped too," said Ralph.

"Well, I better lock up all of you boys," I said.

"Look, I'm trying to make you understand, Sir, that Jack and Roger are the ones that need to be locked up," said Ralph.

"I'm locking up all you boys now, so shut up and get over with the other boys. Some of you soldiers help me lock them up so we can look for the bodies and get out of here," I ordered.

So the soldiers and I tookall the boys over to the helicopter and tied them to a bar. Then we continued to look for the bodies on the island.

"Where might those bodies be anyway?" I asked one of the soldiers. "Didn't one of them boys say they washed out into the ocean," he replied. "Well let's relax then until a search team arrives to look for the bodies," I said.

So I went over to the helicopter and called for a team to look for the bodies around the island we were on. After getting that done I walked over to the soldiers and told them there was a search team coming out and they could soon go home.

"Hey Ralph, this is all your fault," yelled Jack. "I'm gonna get you for this. You just wait till we get home!"

"Ah, shut up!" Ralph yelled back.
