Storyboard Text

  • Ralph reached inside himself for the worst word he knew. He looked down the unfriendly side of the mountain. Piggy arrived, out of breath and whimpering like a littlun. Ralph clenched his fist and went very red. The intentness of his gaze, the bitterness of his voice, pointed for him
  • “They let the bloody fire go out.”
  • “There they are.”
  • Yet as the words became audible, the procession reached the steepest part of the mountain, and in a minute or two the chant had died away.The gutted carcass of a pig swung from the stake, swinging heavily as the twins toiled over the uneven ground. The pig’s head hung down with gaping neck and seemed to search for something on the ground. At last the words of the chant floated up to them, across the bowl of blackened wood and ashes.
  • “Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Spill her blood.”
  • “You let the fire go out.”
  • We had a smashing time. The twins got knocked over—” “We hit the pig—” “—I fell on top—” “I cut the pig’s throat,”
  • “There was a ship. Out there. You said you’d keep the fire going and you let it out ! They might have seen us. We might have gone homeYou and your blood, Jack Merridew! You and your hunting! We might have gone home—
  • I was chief, and you were going to do what I said. You talk. But you can’t even build huts—then you go off hunting and let out the fire—”
  • Jack went very red as he hacked and pulled at the pig. He stood up as he said this, the bloodied knife in his hand. The two boys faced each other. There was the brilliant world of hunting, tactics, fierce exhilaration, skill; and there was the world of longing and baffled commonsense.
  • “We needed meat.”
  • With some positive action before them, a little of the tension died. Ralph said no more, did nothing, stood looking down at the ashes round his feet. Jack was loud and active. He gave orders, sang, whistled, threw remarks at the silent Ralph—remarks that did not need an answer, and therefore could not invite a snub; and still Ralph was silent.
  • “All right. Light the fire.”
  • “All right, all right!I’m sorry. About the fire, I mean. There I apologize
