Summary In a storm
In the storm
On the sea, Grandfather Agafon and Andreika are fishing in the boat. They pull the fish caught in the net. The boy unintentionally releases the carp into the water, for which the grandfather painfully beats his tarred rope.
Andrei is an orphan. When his father left for the Kuban and disappeared, the mother, along with the little Andrei, went in search of him. In the winter, she was very cold and died in the hut of Grandfather Agafon and his wife, who sheltered a woman with a child. His children Grandfather Agathon died in about the time of the epidemic.

Suddenly, my grandfather orders me to turn to the shore. But they do not have time, the storm begins. The grandfather ordered to throw out all the fish, so that the boat was lighter and sailed to the shore, but this does not help either. Andrei gets scared, he screams and cries. Grandfather put Andrei on the steering wheel and said that he ruled the willow, and he crossed himself and rushed overboard. The boat went easier.
“Andrey was all enraptured with the realization that he was saved.” Looking around, he saw his grandfather’s head black with water. “Andreika’s idea of a grandfather was connected with the idea of a harsh one, which could not be resisted by anything, and now the sight of this helplessly rising and falling with the waves of the head struck him.” Andrey shouted in a piercing childish voice: “De-sour! “Swallowing tears, Andreka turned the boat back to his grandfather back into the sea, where” the waves were threateningly “.
