The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree is a tale about a relationship between a young boy and a tree.
The tree always provides the boy with what he wants: branches on which to swing, shade in which to sit and apples to eat.
As the boy grows older, he requires more and more of the tree.
The tree loves the boy very much and gives him anything he asks for.
In an ultimate act of self-sacrifice, the tree lets the boy cut it down so the boy can build a boat in which he can sail.
The boy leaves the tree, now a stump.
Many years later, the boy, now an old man, returns, and the tree sadly says: "I'm sorry, boy... but I have nothing left to give you."
But the boy replies:
"I do not need much now, just a quiet place to sit and rest."
The tree then says,
"Well, an old tree stump is a good place for sitting and resting.
Come, boy, sit down and rest."
The boy obliges and the tree was very happy.

For those who came in late

The Legend of The Lt Blak begins 400 years ago when the sole survivor of a pirate raid was washed up on a remote beach. Friendly pygmies found him and nursed him back to health.

One day while walking on the beach, the survivor found a dead pirate, dressed in his father's clothes. On the skull of his father's murderer, he swore an oath by firelight as the pygmies watched. "I swear to devote my life to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty and injustice, and my sons and their sons will follow me."

This was the Oath of the Skull that he and his descendants would live by. In time, the pygmies led him to the centre of the jungle where he found a large cave with many rocky chambers. The mouth of the cave, a natural formation created by the water and wind of centuries, was curiously like a skull. This skull formation reminded him of an altar he saw in the camp of the 'giant' natives (giant to the pygmies, that is!), when he aided in the pygmies' revolt. It gave him an idea which he later put into practice, and held onto as his 'trademark'.

This Skull Cave became his home. He and the sons who followed became known as the nemesis of pirates everywhere.

He is the mysterious man whose face no-one ever saw, whose name no-one knew. Natives of the unknown Jungle, thinking that all Lt Blaks are the same as the first, say he is immortal, a man who cannot die. Thus, twenty generations of Lt Blaks lived, fought and died, usually violently as they followed their oath. Now, we come to the present...

Lt Blak - the seventh.
