The Auction

Going once... going twice... SOLD! Tears rush down my dirt covered face as my mom and dad are separated from my me. I let out a stifled cry and suddenly realize I'm next. I take a glance at my pale teary eyed brother. I wanted to run but the auctioneer jerked me up towards the front of the stage. He takes out a long thick whip.

He shot out the whip and it crackled against my back. I jumped up, my back thrashing with pain. I hear one of the white owners mutter something about me being tough enough for work in the fields. '' Three hundred! '' The auctioneer yelled. Then the bidding begun. '' Five hundred, six hundred!'' The white owners screamed out prices. I panic. I had to do something. '' Two thousand dollars!'' said a white owner.'' SOLD!'' The white auctioneer walks me down to my new master pushing me along the way. I hear my brother yell out my name. I reach out my hand and wish I was back in the slaves quarters with my family. I know it wasn't much of a good thought to remember but I missed my family.

He stared at me with this evil grin on his face and took me by my arm and put me in the back of his truck. After that he drove away, and I never saw my family again.
