: To be sensible
My mother sickened and was in hospital .I went to take care of her there .
Many went to see my mother ,taking sorts of fruits and tonics with them .When one arrived ,my mother would say ,”Many thanks for your kindness to come to see me . I’m that grateful! How could I have the honor to have you spend money ? Please take the presents back for your children.”
None of them ,of course ,did so .My mother ordered me to stuff these things into the visitors’ arms ,but they would leave them on the table and hurried off when we didn’t pay attention to.
There were too many fruits and tonics for my mother to have .So she gave me some too and would ask me “Is it savory?” while I we were enjoying these things .
“Yes .” replied I .
One or two days later ,one of my cousins went to see my mother ,but without anything in hands ,no fruits nor tonics .When leaving ,he ,however , took a piece of one-hundred bill out of his pocket and put it near my mother’s pillow .Quickly ,my mother picked up the bill to return it to my cousin .But he went off without any hesitating .Pointing at the view of my cousin’s back ,my mother handed me over the bill and said ,”Be quick to return it to him ,please .”
Having taken the money , I hurriedly went off too and caught up with my cousin after a distance .But he stoutly refused to take it .I forcedly stuffed it into his pocket and said ,”Or my mother would not be happy .”
Shaking his head ,my cousin sighed ,” My aunt ,she is too kind-hearted .”
After returning the money ,I went back to the ward again . My mother stretched forward ,leaning on a hand ,and inquired me ,”Has you cousin accepted the money ?”
“He had refused to take it ,but I forcedly put it into his pocket .”
My mother’s head fell onto the pillow again and sighed deeply ,without any words for a long while any more .
Quickly ,I walked forward and asked ,”What’s wrong ,mom?”
Lifting up one of her skinny hands and dauting my face , my mother said ,”When would you be sensible ?”
I then asked her with a reverence and awe ,”Where was I wrong ,mom? “
My mother tucked her lips ,seemingly smiling .She continuously told me ,”I am your cousin’s aunt and have been so heavily sickened . Shouldn’t he have left the piece of one-hundred bill ?”
I took a tumble and was to chase my cousin again ,but my mother stopped me by drawing the end of my dress ,saying “You’re wrong again if you do like this .”
