When I was young, I was very scared of my dad. Although he had never disciplined me through beating or scolding, I tended to be very careful when talking to him.

His face always looked so strict and he rarely gave a smile. I didn’t dare to act coquettishly to him, unlike how I am with mommy.

There was one time that I scored badly in an exam. Even worse, the teacher asked our parents to acknowledge on the paper. My heart jumped up and down but eventually, I went to dad and presented him the paper. I was so afraid of letting him down that I burst into tears even before saying a word.

 

(méi)(xiǎng)(dào)()(ba)()()()(de)(tóu)(xiào)(le) :“()(ba)(xiàng)()(zhè)(me)()(de)(shí)(hou)(kǎo)(le)(líng)(fēn)(hái)()()(tōu)(tōu)()仿(fǎng)()(ye)(qiān)()(bèi)()()(xiàn)()(hòu)(bào)()(le)()(dùn)()(yǒu)(yǒng)()(chéng)(shí)(miàn)(duì)()()(de)(fēn)(shù)()()(ba)()(shí)(zuò)(de)(yào)(hǎo) !”

It came out of my expectation that dad touched my head and smiled, “when I was at your age, I scored zero in an exam. I imitated the signature of your grandpa and was soon caught by him and given a good beat. You are doing much better than the young me by being a brave and honest boy!”

I think my dad is really like a durian, who simply hides his softness and humor underneath a serious-looking face.
