Huck's Rebellion
XLII

I watched as Aunt Sally entered the courthouse to fill out my adoption papers. She had said to me that she was going to make a sivilized young man out of me. She actually believes that she is going to sivilize me , ha! I looked around the room and saw how grimy and dusty it was. There were pieces of wood that were stained red along with others that ranged from green to tan. I then noticed pictures of men on the far end of the room. I got up and looked at the pictures up close. The names of these men were underneath the picture. From what they were wearing I figured that they were judges.
Each one had a stern face and looked as though they were the most unhappy people on the earth. I wonder if this is what being sivilized does to you?
Fifteen minutes had past and Aunt Sally lightly walked out of the courtroom with a paper in her hand. She looked at me and smiled as if she had no cares in the world. We left the building and started to walk back to her house.
Aunt Sally says to me , "Now that you with me all your old ways are to end". "You will be starting school soon and I expect you to do as I say".
I turned my head towards her and nodded. Little did she know what kind of thoughts were going through my head at the time. After what she had just said I don't think that I will be able to stand it. I knew that I was a free boy, I made up my own rules and nobody was going to sivilize me no matter what!
The house came into view after walking for a few miles. I entered first with Aunt Sally walking right behind me.
She said , "Tomorrow were are going shopping to buy you some new clothes and shoes". "The ones that you currently own will be thrown away". "Now why don't you go up stairs and take a bath so you're clean for supper".
While walking up the stairs it hit me, I had remembered a sign near the river that advertised the ferryboat Luistaina. This boat was making a trip down stream to night. If I could get on this boat I could be carried down stream and to the Ohio River. There I could catch another boat and travel up that stream until I found a good enough place to get off. There I could live my life as the way I want to live it.
During supper Aunt Sally started to talk to me about how wonderful it was going to be, just the two of us. I somewhat felt bad but I knew that I wouldn't be happy here and I must leave.
As Aunt Sally was washing the dishes I told her that I was tired and that I was going to go to bed early. She looked at me, smiled and said goodnight. Just before I went upstairs I collected some pillows to place under my sheets. This would fool Aunt Sally went she would go to check up on me during the night. The sun was setting and I knew that I must get a move on to catch the ferry. I entered my room and got a blanket. I placed some food that I had stolen from the cupboard and then placed some clothes in it too. I than made put...
