Children As Enemies
Narration Point of View
Grandchildren: Matt & Flora
"Phew, who believes in that crap?" the boy muttered.
but Gubin didn't make a peep.
on the wet street like colored whales.
he was just a rice barrel thinking of nothing but food.
between grandparents and grandchildren
Our grandchildren hate us.
When: About three months ago.
Where: At their house.
"OUR GRANDCHILDREN HATE US."
boy: Qigan Xi
girl: Hua Xi
People call 'Chicken'
People call 'Wow'
means "amazing bravery"
Gubin & Mandi
"powerful in battle"
" I have an idea. 'Matty' can also come from 'Matt.' Why not drop the letter 'y' and call yourself Matt?"
" Who gives a damn about that! I'm gonna call myself Matt. "
about two months after
Xi - Eleven
"Me and Flora, we both must have a new last name."
"You can't do that. Your last name belongs to the family, and you can't cut yourselves off from your ancestors."
Gubin & Mandy
"Now you're happy to let them break away from the family tree. What kind of daughter-in-law are you? I wish I hadn't allowed you to join our family."
"Who are you?"
"This isn't your home."
"You're just our guests."
"So we sold everything in China, our apartment and candy store, just to be your guests here. huh? Heartless. who told you this isn't our home?"
Decided to move out.
"My Daughter-in-Law Mandi Cheng Is the Most Unfilial Person on Earth! But I dissuaded my old better half. What's the good of that? For sure Mandi's company won't fire her just because she can't make her parents-in-law happy. This is America, where we must learn self-reliance and mind our own business.
don't ask Gubin about what last name Matt and Flora use now.
Matt and Flora usually shun.
want to become Americanized
always listen to Mandi
Who is right or wrong.
Chinese Culture? or America Culture?
Older Generation? or Young Generation?
