Lucy, a 17-year old slave girl, was born on the plantation, works on the plantation, and will most likely die on the plantation. She knows little of the world past the plantation, but that doesn't keep her from wondering about it. With the rare abilities to read and write, she knows there's a better life out there for her; it's just a matter of where. Deciding to find her better life, she runs away to the north, hoping to make a living for herself. But, on her way to freedom, Lucy encounters Koi, the 21-year old son of an Indian tribe's chief. He welcomes her into his tribe, showing her the ways of the world and the heart. At Koi's side, Lucy ventures beyond the cotton fields.

So glad I stumbled across your story. All it took was this chapter , really , the description box and I knew it was a must read . Not disappointed at all
Me as a slave: 
                              Master: Go pick cotton girl don't you understand English!?
                              Me: Oh you mean like Miss Jackson was picking another man to bed the other night massa? I can definitely understand that.  
                              *Gets whipped and hung the next day with a middle finger jester and grin on my lifeless body*

I wish you would get a grip with this word. I mean really. Slaves didn't refer to themselves as this often as far as I know.
