Although Manolin is apprenticed under some one else but he has true conviction just in the mentorship of Santaigo. He never wanted to isolate the old companion but his parents wanted him to be trained under some prosperous boat. He says: I am a boy and I must obey him. There is a unusual dichotomy of the relationship that the boy shares with him. He serves Santiago as a child and tends him as a guardian.
I would like to serve in some way.
It is difficult to analyze the true nature of their relationship. Mostly it is Santiago who mentors the boy but at other times the boy seems to guide him.
Besides looking after the old man he gives him company in his worldly and useful and interesting discourses. Baseball is something the old man is always pleased to talk about.

Unlike most of the children of his age, he finds solace in the company of his old friend discussing issues of common interest. Age does not impede with their bonding with each other.
It is difficult to say who guides whom as theirs is a completely correlative attachment. When he sets out on the eighty fifth day of his venture and hooks a marlin, he wishes he had the boy with him. I could make the line fast. To help me and to see this. Continuously in this present state of trial, he feels lonely and pines for his friend and support Manolin.
Another reason why he desires his presence is because he wants to teach Manolin the art of fishing in most adverse situations to enable him to become one of the most successful fisherman. Besides, he longs for his company as he is the only individual who recognizes his talent even in the most difficult times. Besides his passion for baseball and fishing, if there is anything in world which fosters a sense of achievement and joy in him, it is Manolin.
Three days of a life threatening ordeal and futile outcome, distresses Santiago but contrarily enlightens Manolin who decides not to leave the old man any more.
He makes it bold and clear that he would fish out with the old man and not with any one else. Although there are some apprehensions on the part of the old man regarding his very own ill luck but the boy convinces him of all good luck.
I am not lucky. I am not lucky anymore. I caught two yesterday. But we will fish together now for I still have much to learn. He repossesses the companionship of his only source of happiness, Manolin who cares for him more than a son would have. Nature plays a pivotal role in both their lives. Irrespective of what most critics consider of how Hemingway portrays Santiago, his endurance, his unfortunate ordeals, one aspect of the novella gains more or less similar approval of the human bonding it exemplifies.
The representation of a distinct relationship Santiago and Manolin share has been most appropriately explicated by the author.
Although there is a big age difference, nevertheless, it does not alter the great bonding they both share. Manolin takes care of the old man as a son would and alternatively he looks after him also with a paternal affection.
Santiago loves the child but treats him as his only friend and companion.
