Qinghai, call all the kids out here Qinghai, call all the kids out here I have something to tell you all Oh Now that you’re all here, listen very carefully to what I’m going to tell you Whether we’re dealing with people or doing business we must be honest and keep our promises We mustn’t be greedy And we absolutely can’t take advantage of other people Let me ask you If someone takes something that’s very cheap and sells it to you at a high price, will you be very unhappy when you find out later that you overpaid? We will Qinghai, the popsicles you sold cost 20 cents each but you charged people 50 cents for one When people find out the truth, and feel that they overpaid, won’t they be unhappy about it? Right? In that case, would they buy from you again? That’s why when we do business, we need to be honest and have credibility Only then can our business last for a long time Do you all understand what I just said? Do you all understand what I just said? Dad, we understand I understand now When we grow up, we should be honest doing business so it’ll get better with time From now on, I’ll lower the price when I sell popsicles I’ll just make 10 cents each Good That’s the right thing to do Mom Mom Jinhua is hot all over She’s running a fever What happened? Let me take a look Mom, why is Jinhua running a fever? She has the measles Luckily, the rest of you have all had it already She can’t give it to you What do we do now? Don’t worry about it I’ll take care of her You all go eat breakfast Go to school after you’re done OK Qiuliang, why are you so quiet and walking so slowly? Jinhua has measles Are you still worried about her? She seems to be running a very high fever Doesn’t everyone get the measles? Yeah We should just do what we need to do now and put out this tea Here Here Jinchun A’fa You look like you have something on your mind Did something happen? It’s nothing Those chickens are sick Is it serious? Several already died over the last few days What about the rest? You should hurry and sell them before they show any illness No, I can’t What if they infect other people’s chickens, or people get sick eating them? This isn’t right I can’t do such things You’re right I was so worried, I wasn’t thinking Right now, all I can do is to keep the sick ones away from the rest Before I find out what’s happening to them, I’ll never sell them It so happens that Jinhua got the measles I’m having such bad luck Did you say Jinhua has the measles? Is it serious? She’s been running a fever She’s still running a fever? Keep a close eye on her It’ll be bad if the fever affects her brain I’ll wait and see for a couple more days Come You don’t have a fever anymore I’ll feed you more medicine in a few hours You all go to bed Mom, don’t worry I’ll take care of Jinhua Mom, you go the bed We’ll take care of Jinhua I’ll take care of 6th Sister too You’re all so good OK You all go to bed Here Lie down Be careful Cover yourself Here. Please have some tea It’s enough that you came Why did you have to be so polite and bring gifts? That’s right We’re old friends Why be so formal? Jinchun, Sister-in-law, we’re here today because… We’re here for Jinhua A’fa Jinhua has the measles right now Whatever it is, can’t we wait until she gets better? Having measles isn’t a problem Besides, didn’t you just say that Jinhua doesn’t have a fever anymore? Jinchun, we’ve known each other for a long time You know my family very well I’m the best when it comes to pampering children That’s right. A’fa really loves children He always saves the best food for the kids, instead of having it himself Also, my mom loves her grandchildren She likes your Jinhua so very much That’s right Lately, my mom has been bedridden, but she still keeps saying that she wishes Jinhua could be her granddaughter-in-law But I… Jinchun Jinhua will marry someone when she’s older too Instead of letting her marry someone else, we may as well settle on this marriage now That’s right There aren’t many who have such a heavy burden as you two When your chickens got sick before, you’d rather lose money than sell the sick chickens I admire your honesty and righteousness a lot I admire your honesty and righteousness a lot That’s right Where else can we find in-laws as good as you two? On the other hand, our family Chen family, also has very good traditions The two of us are very down-to-earth You’re indeed good people There is no disputing that Jinchu, Sister-in-law, if you have no objections, why not let us have Jinhua? I promise I’ll pamper her But I think… OK I agree Thank you Thank you Hurry and ask what we need to prepare Is there something you need us to prepare? Jinchun, come eat Since you’re so reluctant to part with her, why did you promise to send her away? Because the Chen family is doing better than ours They’re all nice people If we let them have Jinhua, they’ll treat her very well The Chen’s are doing better than us They have good family traditions A’fa’s son is a good boy I know all that But I’m still very reluctant to give Jinhua away But I’m still very reluctant to give Jinhua away I know you don’t want to, neither do I Every time we give a child away, my heart hurts as if someone put a knife to it Whenever I eat a meal, I wonder if they’re getting enough to eat from those families When I sleep, I worry in my dreams about them not sleeping well in their new families about them not sleeping well in their new families Do you know how sad I feel? In that case, why did you promise to give Jinhua away? A girl’s fate is like a rape seed As her parents, the best we can do is to find a fertile piece of land for her in hopes that she’ll grow up with a better life It’s the same for me I was a child bride in your family since I was little You and I grew up together and understand each other Our life together has been smooth so far Isn’t it good? It’s been good for the two of us But what about A’hao? The trouble with A’hao is because we didn’t really know the other family at the time But they also kept begging me That’s why I agreed to give them A’hao But the Chen’s are different They’ll definitely take good care of Jinhua It’s Jinhua’s good fortune Mom, please don’t give Jinhua away, OK? It’s too late now I’ve already promised Mom I’m begging you Don’t give Jinhua away She’s the song bird in our family She’s also very well-behaved I beg you Don’t give Jinhua away Qiuliang, I’m doing this for Jinhua’s own good I’m doing this for Jinhua’s own good You must understand that Mom, I don’t care I want Jinhua to stay with our family Mom Why don’t you answer me? If you don’t answer, it means you agree with me I heard what you said Now go eat your meal Mom You promised me You can’t give Jinhua away Thank you, Mom
