Well little one when we have slaves and they don't get to work it helps to yell at them or hit them in order for them to get back to work and listen.
We are escaping tonight son. This is really serious. The conductor of the underground railroad came to me and said we have a chance to escape tonight but there is also a penalty for running away if we are caught so we have to be very careful.
OK we have to start moving and fast because in the morning they will start hunting for you guys.
OK just walk down this path and then there will be a boat ready to take you and the magic word to tell the person is Abra Cadabra! Good Luck!
