Douglass is a slave who was being sent off to a guy named Covey who was a slave breaker. Douglass was sent here from his old master Mr.Auld and his wife Mrs.Auld. Covey would try to take down emotions and hopes. When Douglass got there Covey would say “ Douglass come do this” and would tell him something else to do as soon as he finished the job he just got told to do. When Douglass did it to slow Covey would say “Come here to the whipping stand Douglass”. Douglass would just take it.
One day Douglass decided that he didn’t want to get whipped anymore. He would then start making ideas of his escape. Douglass would ask other slaves “Hey do you want to make a plan to help us both escape.”. But the slaves he would ask would say “No we don’t want to risk getting caught then getting whipped or possibly killed.”. So Douglass would just make his plan by himself. One night Douglass decided to run away. He ran away into the woods to escape Covey and escape being whipped.
While Douglass was running away he stopped to rest on a tree. Another runaway slave came through the bushes startling Douglass. He said “Hi my name is Sandy.”. “My name’s Douglass.”. Sandy showed Douglass where he sleeps and and gave him a fire to stay warm. Thank you” Douglass said. “You’re welcome” said Sandy. Sandy tells Douglass that he wants to help him. Douglass decided that he wanted to go back and confront Covey. So Sandy gives him a protective route to protect him.
