thinking they are such a great age for the children, but also come all the way to the city seeking a man living two students, my tears can not help but fall a Pilipala.Father nervously rubbed his two big hands full of calluses, kept saying, cry Han miles, cry Han miles.For a long time, I stopped the tears, one hand on the ground Dianqi old canvas bag in one hand and Chanzhu mother’s arm and said, Mom, Dad, go, first I dormitory and rest your feet!Dad quickly step across hold down the package says, is that I discuss with your mother, the first stall quiet live, and then you look at the house,

side that says Henan, handmade, large benefits, the words fair price.From the outset, parents do not want me to help, said the two of them handle it.I do not want to be all right during the day, more books critical.Eat a meal in school, after school at night over then told your mom do something.The first day I could not help but go, secretly hiding in the side of parents looking food stalls.In order to meet the first day of opening, parents are surrounded on the white apron, with sleeves, respectfully standing in the doorway of the shed, his face filled with laughing hard.Once a student approached, they quickly leaned over, leaning forward slightly, what little testimony was talking to the student.Some students just went inside, did not really go in, greeting parents also pay any attention, just a glance away.Leaving the parents out there, still leaning the body, face piled ingratiating smile, just a touch of disappointment has unwittingly float.Subsequently, etc..Students really came, parents flattered a look, and quickly let them in, pick up a piece of cloth to wipe the table stool and scrub to the son as big as their God.Then, the mother went to the fire, rolling surface, with a cautious smile dad standing next to that customer, and asked what to put seasoning, do not put what I look at all of this, again nose sour, really want to find a place big cry.I’m

started to cry, saying we unfamiliar, eat a small loss eat a small loss of it, can not dare to stir up trouble, you can not dare to delay.My heart is confused mess mom crying, I wanted to shout toward heaven: God, you are so unfair!Why my parents so much older had earned out of these hard-earned money, why have bullied?why?why?Parents finally leave, the school and the district government where the surrounding environment governance, requiring all stalls must be withdrawn immediately, or confiscated, but also fine.Parents of food stalls there is less than a month to disappear, and accompany parents eat hot soup in the dim light of history will be gone.Happiness is always short too cruel.This is the last night.Finally, a bowl of hot soup since Mom still silently Ganmian article, do these days for her son as well as her last customer.I sit on the stool, and asked Dad, can not go here, go back and do it?Dad was silent for a long time, a low voice said, you do not worry for the home, the road is traveled, I would not really put people suffocated it!He endured all with patience.I no longer silent, turned away.Under the dim light, the pot of water toot braved mist in the air and wind around through the misty fog, I saw the familiar figure mom shaking before chopping board, thin shoulder of a Shrug.Surface well, or a full bowl, steaming, sprinkle some white middle green green onion, parsley surface before, the mother is still as before, looked at me kindly to eat, dad exception deliberately moved stools over, a family of three tightly endure.Ma said a lot that night, then asked me to pay attention to the body, I am willing to spend money to.I heard what went in, and nothing seems to listen, only buried her face in steaming hot inside, any tears wanton cross-flow in the cheeks.A few days later, the father wrote that they got home, everything is fine, do not worry.Mom told me that this time out also met with major aspects of society, and not a loss, but in the end did not go where I live to see, always a pity.
