At night, up in the sky and air battle occurs, and a dead parachute
man falls down near to the top of the mountain in the island. Sam and Eric who
were going to collect firewood for signal fire saw this parachute and they
think it is the Beast. They ran away from the Beast to the Boys in the camps,
and tell that they had seen the Beast to everyone. This news terrifies
everyone. Jack, Ralph, and other older boys go to look for beast at a place
they have never explo0red before, Castle Rock, at the far end of the island.
They could not find any beast there so they turned around, and got
the way to go to the mountain top. On their way they stopped to do some
hunting, and Ralph got a taste of it. Then boys did some fun things, one of
them pretended to be the pig, and other boys pretended to they are attacking
him. This is quite violent. It was dark everywhere when they got to the
mountain, but Jack insists to keep going. Jack, Roger, and Ralph climbed up the
mountain in the dark, they saw the beast and ran back to the shelters, where
everyone was there.
In the beach Jack tries to convince boys to take Ralph out of his
Chief, instead vote for Jack to become the chief, but none of the boys accept
it. Jack gets humiliated again, and says he is not going to play with them
Jack asks boys anyone who wants to go hunting can accompany him,
many of the older boys join Jack. All of the hunters painted their faces, and
did war dance. They killed a pig. Jack and Roger put the head on a stake that
they had already dug in the ground. Jack and his tribe raid Ralph’s group to
take fire from signal fire on the top of mountain. Jack’s tribe invited Ralph’s
boys to come to the feast, and also them that they can join Jack’s tribe if
Simon often wanders off alone by his own sees the Pig’s heads. Head
says to Simon that it’s the beast and Lord of the Flies; also he says that
beast is not something they could kill or hunt. The head laughs at Simon and
says Beast is inside the boys.
Simon rushes up to the mountain to find out what that dead
parachuter really is, and he sees it. Simon hurries up to go to the boys and
tell them that there is not any beast.
Ralph and Piggy had gone to the Jacks feast. Everyone was there
except Simon. Most of the boys had joined Jack’s tribe. Jack makes all the boys
to do hunting dance and chant, “Kill the Beast. Cut his throat. Spill his
blood.” At this time Simon out of the forest to tell everyone that there is not
any beast, but a dead man in the parachute, but boys all kill him, even Ralph.
The next day Ralph, Piggy, Sam, and Eric wanted to pretend that
they were not part of what happened to Simon. At night Jack’s tribe once again
attacked Ralph’s group to steal Piggy’s glasses so that they can make fire
anytime they want.
Ralph, Piggy, Sam, and Eric had their last meeting, with the conch.
Piggy held the conch and said that he want to go and demand his glasses back.
They went to Castle Rock, but the boys there didn’t allow them in. Jack comes
back from the jungle and has Sam and Eric tied up. Jack and Ralph fought
together, but Piggy interrupts and asks boys whether it is good to believe and
follow the rules and get rescued or to hunt, and disobey the rules. While he
was talking Roger dislodges a huge stone that breaks down the conch, and kills
Piggy. Jack threw his spear at Ralph, but Ralph ran away. Jack and Roger
prepared to torture Sam and Eric.
At night while Jack’s tribe were having a feast, Ralph came to talk
to Sam and Eric. Same and Eric told Ralph he was going to get hunted next day,
and also that Roger had sharpened a stake at both ends.
Next day during the hunt, Ralph hid in the bushes, but Sam and Eric
told Jack where he was hiding. Jack puts all the bushes on fire, and his tribe
formed a line to find Ralph.
Jack sets whole island on fire and Ralph ran out to the beach where
a police officer had just arrived, investigating the fire.
Police officer asked few questions from Ralph. Ralph answered.
Ralph was trying to explain what happened during the time that they were in
this island, but his deep sadness didn’t let him and he started to weep and
sob, when he started sobbing other littluns also started sobbing. Boys got
