Storyboard Description

"Dear diary, its been a year since I've been a slave with my master Mr Johnson, he is such a cruel guy, he hits me at least 100 times a day, today he spanked me 50 times just because i spilled tea on the floor, it was unintentional because his daughter bumped me and made me spill the tea that was supposed to be for Mr Johnson, as cruel as he is, his daughter Christine is actually a very nice person, when I'm sick because of Mr. Johnson, sometimes she goes to my room in the barn and brings me hot tea and a blanket so i can get better, i think i'll ask my friend drake to help me out ' hey drake let's escape, we need an escape plan, what do you think' sure he said. I suggested to escape at night when our master is asleep and left a decoy to trick the guards that are searching for the slavers at night. WE DID IT, we escaped, i was so happy but we had to sleep in the woods for months, we were searching for shelter where the other slaves or the rebels are hiding, but we had trouble because of the amount of slave searchers I ran with two of my friends, Mr. Jack and Mr. Dent. Apparently, all this time our masters had been looking for us & tried to follow our footsteps. They got to the woods and we were found. We fall into the trap hole, created by my master. After that, they arrested us and took us to court. Then, my master made a decision that we would be auctioned off to other masters. One week later, we were auctioned & I was bought by Mr. Frans, my new master. Both my friends had also been purchased by other masters. I worked for 5 years with Mr. Frans. He treated the same thing with Mr. Johnson, I was beaten and flogged.I thought back to escape from my master. This time, I ran away with two of my friends, Mr. Frend and Mr. Timpo. Unfortunately, our masters chased us and we were caught. We were taken to court and auctioned off again. Huh, very sad.
