CHAPTER 7 Pip’s Story
You met our cook’s boy, Pip, earlier in my story. Pip was a young black American boy. He was only fourteen. A whaling ship wasn’t a nice place for a boy, but Pip liked his work. He sang in the kitchen when he helped the cook. But things changed for him.
After many weeks we lost Moby Hick and we started to look for other whales again. One of Stubbs men broke his arm, so he couldn’t row. Stubb put Pip in our boat on the next whaling trip because there was no other man. Pip didn’t want to go. We could see that in his face. But he always wanted to help, so he went quietly. Our first trip was fine and Pip felt happier at the end of it.
On our second trip Tashtego’s harpoon hit a whale behind its eye. The angry whale turned around and hit the boat. Pip jumped up—and then out of the boat!
When he jumped, the harpoon rope caught him. The whale started to swim away fast. It pulled Pip behind it. We could see Pip’s head go in and out of the water.
“Stupid boy!” shouted fashtego. He stood up with his knife. He could cut the rope and free the boy.
He looked at Stubb. Stubb liked the boy, but he didn’t want to lose the whale.
“Cut the rope!” shouted Starbuck angrily.
Tashtego cut the rope and the whale swam away. They pulled Pip back into the boat. The men were very angry with him.
“Never jump out of the boat again!” said Stubb. “We’ll have to leave you. Who will bring us more money—you or a whale?”
On the third trip Pip jumped again when a whale hit the boat. He was a young boy—a cook—not a whaler. He was afraid. This time Stubb left him in the ocean.
“Please come back!” Pip shouted. “Please don’t leave me! The sharks will eat me!”
Bur the boat went after the whale. Pip was in the ocean for a long time. The water was as cold as ice and Pip was afraid. The ocean was very dangerous.
Stubb sent the Pequod for him after we got our whale. When Pip climbed the rope, Captain Ahab put out his hand to him. Pip was a little crazy now. When he saw Captain Ahab’s hand, he saw the hand of Cod.
“Thank you, God!” he cried.
After that day Pip was a different person. He followed Captain Ahab everywhere. He was always with him. And Captain Ahab was a different man when he was with Pip. He never shouted at him. He smiled and was kind to him.
After many days of this Starbuck got angry and shouted at Pip. “Captain Ahab is not God! Stop following him, you crazy boy!”
“Why are you angry? The boy doesn’t understand,” I said to Starbuck.
“I’m not angry. I’m afraid. I know the boy is crazy. But Captain Ahab? Does lie think lie’s God? Is lie …?” He stopped before he said the word “crazy.” “This is not good. It’s wrong!” said Starbuck. Then he walked away.
