This spring Jamie saw a new friend in the harbour. He was watching the seal playing under the water going up and down. Jamie was surprised at the speed of the seal running around the water.
Jamie is thinking that the seal was tired of going around the world now he wants to live peacefully in a small pool. Now the seal is fearless of people and come close to them for food.
Jamie's papa has a store his dad was giving a credit to the villagers a supply ship bringing merchandise for his dad. they were getting gifts from the supply ship too. This time Davie got a bag of sweets, Jamie got a flute and Robert got a rifle.
the trader were telling stories of savages while eating at Jamie's house they told savages that their stealing . From north to east coast. East coast people were killing the savages Jamie feared that he would not not be able to see any of the savages.
Jamie was choke but he couldn't make any sound his eyes are dry. and he said "the seal was dead". Why had Robert used the rifle?. the seal had been my good friend. Jamie is guilty with no crime.
