Seems to me we ought to have a chief to decide things.
A chief! A chief!
During their escape from England the boys plane suddenly caught fire and began to plummet downwards. They crash landed on an uninhabited island in the Pacific Ocean. The boys made it out alive, the pilot was not so lucky. The young boys were now left stranded without any adults, isolated from society.
You knew didn't you? I'm part of you? Close! Close! Close! I'm the reason it's no go. Why things are the way they are.
Not long after their arrival one of the boys named Ralph discovered a conch shell lying on the beach. As he continued to blow into it other boys started tp appear from the edges of the jungle. One at a time they sat around him waiting for him to speak. He declared that they do not know how long they will be here, so they will need a chief. Perhaps it was a natural born leadership the boys saw inside him, but Ralph was quickly nominated as chief. Jack was not ecstatic to say the least.
One night a pilot was forced to eject himself from his plane while flying over the island. HIs silhouette must of appeared quite strange as the boys quickly mistook him for "the beast." Terrified yet curious the boys ban together go on a hunt to try uncover the creature.
It is now that Simon comes face to face with the beast. He is on the brink of exhaustion and believes himself to be simply hallucinating. The beast speaks saying he is no object instead he is the savagery that lies within each and everyone of them. The being tells Simon his life is in grave danger, if only the boy had listened. As he comes running from the woods to tell the others of his discovery he is jumped and brutally murdered.
Piggy holds the conch clinging to it for dear life, shouting to Roger that he has the right to speak. Roger believes no one has the power to speak out against his cruelty. The boy doesn't listen instead he finds a large boulder loosening it and sending it tumbling towards Piggy. He and the shell are both crushed in this coldblooded murder.
Whilst attempting to kill Ralph the boys manage to set fire to the whole island. The sheer amount of smoke caused from this attracts a nearby navy vessel. The naval officer shows up to help them and quite ironically asks if they had been playing war. When Ralph sobbingly agrees there were casualties, he is disgusted by the improper savagery. He believes they did not react the way true British men should have.
