While I was sleeping, my father cut his finger with the ax. I felt so bad he said I would take his fathers place as a voyageur. I would be willing to leave behind his family , school friends ,and all his duties at home and start making money.
I left St. Annes leaving a donation. I got on the water and got along with most of my crew members. My muscles are sore and my blisters hurt but I will get used to it once I get used to paddling. I miss my family but i know we needed to get money somehow.
While we were getting fast, La Londe fell out and drowned. Bellgared said ''for no man whats still alive".I tried blinking back my tears.We headed to the rapids and everyone was having a great time but not me.I was terrified and it was just the beginning.It was very fast and wet. Water rushed over me.
