The narrator in the story is the little boy's father. The story is therefore told from the first person point of view ("I"). Second person point of view is used when the narrator directly addresses the reader ("you"). Second person is typically used in letters, for example.

The narrator is the father n this  is a way by which Hemingway keeps suspense throughout the story n as we remain ignorant throughout the story... He's intelligent!
