Jack orders the twins to join the tribe, but when they request only to be released, he bullies them, poking the twins in the ribs with a spear. The other boys cheer him on but fall silent when they notice Roger edging past Jack to confront the twins.
“You got to join the tribe.”
“You lemme go—” “—and me.”
The chief snatched one of the few spears that were left and poked Sam in the ribs.
“What d’you mean by it, eh?” said the chief ﬁercely. “What d’you mean by coming with spears? What d’you mean by not joining my tribe?”
The prodding became rhythmic. Sam yelled.
“That’s not the way.” Roger edged past the chief, only just avoiding pushing him with his shoulder. The yelling ceased, and Samneric lay looking up in quiet terror. Roger advanced upon them as one wielding a nameless authority.
