After escaping Mr.Covey, I ran into the woods and found a man named Sandy; he was also a slave. He invited me to his house so I gladly agreed that I would go. Sandy talked to me about slavery and then gave me a magical root to go back to the plantation.
I walked back to the plantation and see Mr.Covey waiting for me. "Come here douglass." said Mr.Covey. I got closer, and as soon as I did; Mr.Covey started whipping me. At first I didn't do anything. But then I just got tired of being treated like a slave and not as a regular human being. So I fought back and it went on for a long time.
After the fight with Covey, he never whipped me but only made sure I did my work. He gave me privacy and gave me respect.
