Covey got me on the ground he had me right where he wanted, I was vulnerable. Covey, as evil as a snake, had deceived me to think he wasn’t angry with me. As I was on the ground with Covey I felt I had to do something I had to fight back. I got up and fought him the little weasel was surprised as ever. As I now had the confidence to fight the him. The wimp tried to get help from Hughes and Ben but neither could help him.
They fought for two hours, never stopping. Douglass, not giving up, and not getting tired. But Covey was sweating a river and was huffing and puffing the breaths of defeat. “Did you mean to persist this much and resist” Covey said coughing every word out. “Yes” Douglass said in a stern powerful voice. Covey would soon realize that Douglass was a force to be reckoned with. And Covey realized Douglass would not be broken by him.
After this fight Douglass would never be whipped again by Covey or other slaveholders. But these other slaveholders would soon know Douglass was a force to be reckoned with. This fight also gave Douglass his want for freedom which would soon be a need. Four years after, Douglass would soon escape slavery. And also become what he is known for today the person who helped abolish slavery and helped make the world better.
