"The twins, Sam 'n Eric, were the first to get a likely log but they could do nothing till Ralph, Jack, Simon Roger, and Maurice found room for a hand-hold. They inched the grotesque dead thing up the rock and toppled it over on top."


"The space under the palm trees was full of noise and movement. Ralph was on his feet too, shouting for quiet, but no one heard him. All at once the crowd swayed toward the island and was gone - following Jack."


"Ralph and Jack looked at each other while society paused about them. The shameful knowledge grew in them and they did not know how to begin confession."
