Since that night, when I missed my mother, I could only stealthily take out the photo of my mother and I did not let my father know because I did not want him be upset. Two years ago, my father picked me up from school as usual. When I entered into home, I heard a strange voice “welcome back, Wing.” I saw an unfamiliar aunt that she was wearing my mother’s apron and rubbing her hands. She said, “You are more beautiful than the photos that your father showed me. Let’s have dinner together.” I said nothing and looked to my father, but he was smiling at the aunt.

My brother kept her inside my room until she went asleep, while Dad & I quickly prepared the surprise. This was my last time celebrating her birthday in our hometown, before I go abroad to the busy maple city. Nevertheless, it was one of those wonderful days I would never forget.

My mother read to me every night until I fell asleep. I can remember having dreams about the fairytales she read to me.

However, the Company which arranged our trip managed to reserve only two rooms for us in the hotel which meant that I had to share a room with my two sisters. That night turned out to be my worst night ever as my sisters kept bugging me by pulling my hair while I was asleep. They also tried to scare me with horrible voices and stupid tactics.
