hope

You went to Fengshan too right?
My son is also there.
After that you went to R.I?
My son’s also going there.
No other school for him.

What kind of hope does a father place in his children? Is it true what they say, that he lives vicariously through them, that he wants them to get the opportunities, live the life he did not have. He told his wife to keep quiet, and she did. Strands of hair grew from his chin, and a middle aged paunch, because your job comes first, and it just happened. But his daughter was beautiful, as some children are beautiful, something of his wife was in her, she, as exuberantly young as her mother was old, in her own world, playing with a pink little doll dress, unaware that maybe her father was also dreaming of a good school for her, no other.
