He tries way to hard and overworked Doodle. “Doodle was both tired and frightened, and when he stepped from the skiff he collapsed onto the mud” (Hurst 6).
The storm started to come down, so they took off for home. I heard Doodle who had fallen behind, cry out, “Brother, Brother, don’t leave me! Don’t leave me!” (Hurst 6).
