When Frederick returned, Covey called him to the whipping post like a bird calling to his mother. "Come here Douglass," said Covey.
Covey tried to whip Frederick but Frederick blocked it and WHAM! The whip hit the post. Then Frederick got hit. The whip screamed his name as it hit Frederick. This was the start of a fight.
The fight lasted for what felt like hours. However, in the end, Frederick, a slave, won against Covey, his slave breaker. Covey then knew he could never break or hit Frederick again. Frederick had won Covey's respect.
After his victory against Covey, Frederick said to himself, "I will never act or think like a slave again."
