A Friendship Rekindled
A.N.: Ok this is my first fanfic for something besides How To Train Your Dragon. I read Lord of the Flies for English class and was assigned to write a chapter 13 for it. I wrote this in class ,not the full assignment, and decided to post it here to show it. I'll also my chapter 13 soon and the beginning will be same as this.
"All line up in size order." said the officer as they approached the ship. Ralph looked back on the island and shuddered finally calming himself down. Jack remembered how he had lost his mind and that costed the lives of Simon and Piggy. He looked at the pair of spectacles in his hand and grasped on, with a few tears shed, wishing in his heart that he would take back his actions. He hoped that Simon and Piggy would forgive him.
He took some steps and stood beside Ralph, his black cap shielding him from the gaze of the sun.
"Ralph, I'm sorry. I never should have gone on that stupid, bloody, hunting. We could have been home. None of this would have happened."
Ralph, before deep in thought, turned to face him. "It's alright." he said. "It wasn't your fault, completely. It was the island, the war, all this."
Jack nodded but still could not forgive himself.
"Piggy and Simon would understand."
Jack looked at the fair boy in confusion. "Piggy says Simon's death wasn't our fault. It was the storm, the beast." He bend his head down. "We were scared."
Jack looked at the spectacles in his hand and held them out to Ralph. Ralph looked at them for a few seconds before grasping them in his hand. Ralph looked at Jack and they both nodded before turning to the officer. They were going home.
