fire, food, and other things. SamnEric took the responsibility of fire, Jack
and his choir said we’ll be hunting. All the boys went up to the mountain to
light the fire. Ralph took piggy’s glasses to start the fire. After they
started the fire piggy angrily said we should make shelter. Simon was the only
boy who was helping Ralph with making the shelters. While the boys were with
jack away from fire, a ship passes from there without noticing them because the
fire was turned off. When the boys came back piggy blames jack for the fire and
jack attacks on piggy and breaks his one side of glasses.

them. There piggy claims he doesn’t believe in any beast, and Simon says “maybe
there is a beast…maybe it’s only us”! In
