At first a boy named Manolin went with him, but after forty days without any fish, the boy was sent to another boat by his parents, who thought it would be bad luck for him to follow the old man. On the eighty-fifth day, the old man rowed the boat far out early in the morning, and unexpectedly caught a Marlin bigger than the boat. The old man toyed with the fish for two days and finally got it. But the injured fish left a trail of fishy in the sea, attracting numerous sharks to fight, the old man struggled with the shark, but when he returned to the harbor, the Marlin was only a huge skeleton, the old man was exhausted and fell to the land. The boy came to see the old man. He didn't think Santiago had been defeated. That afternoon Santiago fell asleep in the hut and in his dream he saw the lion.
