Fear first comes into play when the boys are all up on top of the mountain after they light their first fire The entire back side of the mountain bursts into flames and all that can be heard is the popping and hissing from the brush The odd pop sends branches and creepers into the air When one of the little boys sees one of the creepers fly up from down below he screams Snakes Snakes This frightens the other lil uns While all the boys are still up on top of the mountain Piggy had noticed that something was missing The boy with the large birthmark on his face was missing At first they didnt think too much of it He could be playing in the bushes or back down at the beach After a great deal of time the small boy was still nowhere to be found and was soon forgotten by the other boys Although the boy with the birthmark on his face was lost in the minds of the other boys the memory of that day still haunted Piggy This reminded him of how he hated the society in which they had created He just wanted to get away from it all Ralph was the only one that ensured his survival Without Ralph Piggy was nothing The boys fear of the unknown on the island leads to their fear of the beast The boys cannot accept the notion of a beast existing on the island nor can they let go of it The recognition that no real beast exists and that the only beast on the island is fear itself is one of the deepest meanings of the story
