Simon leaves to take a bath Ralph and Jack go to find him at the bathing pool. But Simon instead is walking around the jungle alone. Simon finds the cave with the monster, he walks in and sees a dying pilot and understand that they were the only monsters on the island. He runs back to the camp but the boys think he's the monster and stab him to death with their spears. Ralph is ashamed of what they have done. Piggy tries to tell him that it was an accident and they had nothing they could do but it doesn’t make Ralph feel any better. Jack rules with absolute power. Boys are punished for no apparent reason. The entire tribe, including Jack, seems to believe that Simon really was the beast, and that the beast is capable of assuming any disguise.

He says that he and two other hunters, Maurice and Roger, should raid Ralph’s camp to obtain more fire and that they will hunt again tomorrow.
