That evening to escape I ran towards the fence with Mr. Covey right behind me. The fence separated our plantation and Mrs. Kemp’s farm. The corn stalks gave me cover from Mr. Covey finding me he eventually gave up and went home, thinking that I will either come back or die of starvation in the woods. That night I spent the night with my close friend Sandy Jenkins. He gave me shelter till the morning. That night he gave me a root that he said was magic from the masters ever whipping us again. I thought he was joking, but he was completely serious. That morning I left to see Covey.
Covey was calm about the situation for a while, I at once began to think the root Sandy gave me was actually magic. The next day the magic of the root was fully tested. The day started out normal till Covey asked me to go over to the barn. He secretly followed me to the barn. When I was there he jumped me and tried to tie me up, but I struggled and tried to get away. Covey called his assistant and he tried to tie me up but BAM!! I kicked his assistant in the side and knocked Covey down. Covey got up and tried to finish tying me but I got lose and BOOM I punched him in the face. Now a fight broke out between me and Covey. Bam, Boom, Bang, I got a swing at his face and he fell to the ground with a BOOM!
The fight lasted for two hours and he finally fell to the ground tired. Covey had fear in his eyes and I knew I won. After the fight he grew scared of me. Covey still tried to whip me from time to time but he knew if he took it too far, what would happen. I finally was able to escape on a boat that took me North, which lead me to freedom.
