Speaking

This weekend I will back my hometown meet my father. I haven’t seen him for one year, so I have to back home and meet him. He was a soldier for about 20 years and he was very strict and traditional. He is very strict about my education, he made rules at home, about polite to older person and polite to peers. But he’s always traditional, he thought work for government is best way to live. it was my mother always encourage me to look around the world, the bigger cities. My father never interfered my decision. We separated when I was 7 years old, because that time he was still a soldier. I remembered that when I cut my foot, we went to hospital to pack my cut, I didn’t say thank you to the doctor, and he slapped my face. He thought this behavior made him lose face. My mom got crazy, because after I slapped, my ear was bleeding, she worried your ears. I was very introverted, I don’t like talk with someone.
