When the storm comes, “A wave of restlessness set the boys swaying and moving aimlessly” and “the littluns began to run about, screaming.”(P187) Jack demands that savages do the ceremonial dance just as they do it before killing pigs to achieve a sense of security. Even “Piggy and Ralph […] found themselves eager to take a place in this demented but partly secure society” (P187). However, Simon appears for his decision of sharing his discovery about the beast at this time, and this is absolutely inopportune. All of the boys, include Piggy and Ralph, brutally beat him to death.

Vesculent’s sword was so sharp, that it split Higlac right in half, so the dreaded beast took his lower half as a snack for its trip home.

It shows up when he and his man are fleeing the Cyclops on this ship and he just could not help bragging to Polyphemus about it and revealing his name.
“the most merciful threw stones at him... they burned his side with an iron for branding steers” (Marquez 977). All these punishments were warranted by the assumptions at the beginning of the story.

His misfortune reached its peak at this time for these punishments may have increased the angel’s recovery time. “at the beginning of December some large, stiff feathers began to grow on his wings, the feathers of a scarecrow...
Bob progressively starts to threaten everyone who embarrassed him in court, especially Atticus. “Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he’d get him if it took the rest of his life” (Lee 290).

The Zam left and we started the period, West Kent was furious and started running us. Poor Beatty got lit up like we were doing to their lamp.
De Spain tells Abner that he will be taking 20 bushels of his next crop in order to make up for the damages. Abner again is outraged by the amount he is charged with and takes De Spain to court. Abners charge is lessened to 10 bushels yet he still is furious and feels he's being treated unfairly.

The next day, while he was outside pasturing his sheep, I found a wooden staff in the cave. When he returned, I got him drunk on wine that I brought along from the ship.
After a pig run with the hunters and Ralph, things seemed to fall apart quickly. Jack and Ralph have an argument which makes the kids choose between Ralph being leader and Jack being leader. This is where the strict bold lines of civility and savagery appear. The kids in Jack’s tribe were chanting and making a dance around the fire, they accidentally kill Simon thinking he was the beast.
