It was the morning of the escape and they were ready, they would no longer be a slave but a freemen. But,then … “We have been betrayed” shouted Sandy They all stood there in disbelief wondering who would do that to them and what would happen to them. They all screamed at the same time “ What” They were then called over to the front gate were two white men and their slave holder were waiting for them. At that point all their hopes of freedom were demolished and they walked in shame towards the gate.
Douglass and his friends arrived at the gate only to find out that the two white men were constables or the police. They were scared for their lives which were actually at risk. Who knows what would happen to them. The constables wished to tie up all of them which they did for Douglass and John but they had trouble with Henry who refused. While the constables tried to tie up Henry, Douglass ate the fake protections so when the constables searched them they would not be found. “What are we gonna do bout the protections Frederick” asked John “Here give them to me” replied Douglass “What are you gonna do” said John “I will eat them” said Douglass
Douglass was about to give up but, then he saw someone walking towards them in the distance. “Is that Mr.Auld” wondered Douglass It was Mr.Auld and Douglass became relieved. Mr.Auld was there to rescue Douglass. “Would you like to go to my brothers house. He can teach important skills you could use in life” Mr.Auld asked Douglass “Of course...I mean yes,sir” replied Douglass Douglass was now headed for a new start to freedom. If he could learn a new trade he could make money on his own and become a freeman.
