My mother left me when I was eight 8 months. I was brought up by my dad. Dad looks quite normal, no different from the rest. But he is the most important person in my life.
He ran his grocery business in China 8 years ago, but the business only lasted 3 years and it closed as a result of bad management. He went bankrupt and we moved to a small room. I was 6 years old at that time and I helped him by selling newspapers to lighten his burden. He appreciated me and complimented me, but he did not encourage me to help him by selling newspaper. He just wanted to me grow up happy and healthy.
After his grocery business was closed, he worked as an engineer at a big company for 3 years and then we ran his own trade business again. During the days of his business, he met a young girl and she became his girlfriend. But the two have broken up after a year of dating as the girl wanted to find a rich boyfriend. I knew the girl had broken my daddy’s heart because I saw him crying sometimes and tears were running down her cheeks. But when he saw me he wiped his tears with his hands and said there was some sand in his eyes.
Since then, he has never met another girl again. And we moved to America to start another chapter of our lives. He started his solar power business and I continued my education.
His business runs very well. We bought a new house by installments this year. I asked dad why he wanted to buy a new house though we don’t have enough money. He said he would like to give me a sweet and safe home. After a long silence, he asked:”Do you allow me to find a girlfriend. “Yes, as long as you are happy, but I hope you can find a nice girl.” I answered to him. He smiled at me and held me tight.
Suddenly, I heard his phone received notification from the Titathink TT12CN home security system, then he opened his phone to see the video – a young lady stood in front of our home, then Dad was happy to open the door.
