1. Jimmys beginning

  Jimmy lived in Smyrna Georgia in a big mansion. His family was pretty wealthy compared to most people that live in Smyrna. One morning Jimmy went downstairs to eat breakfast and his slave was making him pancakes for him. When she gave him his pancakes he said "thank you" you're welcome" said the slave. He was always nice to his slaves but that made his father vary mad he didn't like that his son was being nice to the slaves. After Jimmy eat breakfast he went out side like everyday. But when he got outside he saw a new slave that was crying along one of the slaves houses. So Jimmy went over there and said "what's wrong what's your name" Katie my name is Katie and I just got here this morning after I was sold and taken away from my family and bought by your father" said Katie. "Oh I'm sorry I didn't know and i'm also sorry that my father did this to you and your family but I can't do anything because my father doesn't listen to me he just ignores me since my mother died" Jimmy said. "Your mother died I thought wealthy white people didn't go through stuff like that but I am sorry for your lose" said Katie.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 "Do you want me to show you around the farm" said Jimmy. " I guess" said Katie "Ok by the way it's a really big farm so it might take awhile" said Jimmy "thats fine but I have a lot of work to do and I don't want to get in trouble by my owner" said Katie. "Don't worry I'll help you for it will go faster then I will show you around the farm" said Jimmy "ok then lets hurry" said Jimmy. But when they started to work Jimmy's father saw them and he went up there and yelled  at Jimmy and grabbed him and took him in the house and said "Jimmy what do you think you are doing you are helping slaves thats what you are doing and you are not a slave so I never want to see you out there helping any slaves ever again do you hear me" yes father" said Jimmy. So after his father yelled at him he went up stairs and went to bed but the next morning when he came down for breakfast his pancakes just finished so he eat his breakfast then he had to go to school. But he didn't see his father for the whole morning which isn't normal usually he's always there for breakfast. But when he got to school which he hated because he always gets bullied by this kid named Billy but Billy wasn't there which was a relief but he did get lonly at school without Katie there Katie was his only friend.
