I made up my mind to drive to South Carolina to meet my friends in my used car. Though I had only been there once 1 and did not know the 2 very well. I was on the 3 after I had made some inquiries (询问).

At Ashvelle, there was a crossroad where I could go on along the main road or I could take a short cut. The short cut was to 4 several hills and was dangerous ,I hesitated (犹豫)for a little while and then chose the main road, for I wanted to be 5 .

The sound of the rain hitting the windows wakes me up and it sound just exactly as it did 15 years ago, which reminded me of my girlhood.

It was my second day of 1 and it was raining heavily. I could not 2 the habit I had at home , so I fell asleep right at my 3 . I woke up to find myself not in the classroom but carried on Dad’s back. We were 4 home. It was the last time I felt 5 to him.

After that, he never carried me or hugged me as other fathers did to their children.

I was not bothered much by this 6 . I was proud of it, for I felt 7 and “grown up.”However, there were times when I felt depressed by not having sought 8 from him.

I follow his 11 for the next two words, but 12 I could see little improvement, I followed my own method-the 13 way. His advice did not improve my writing but our 14 . As I grew older, I found out that he had finished his 15 in Grade 6, which was the highest grade in town then, so he was considered to be a 6 . People used to ask him to write something to put on the walls, but he never felt very useful.

He often said to me, “As you can see, this family is going to count on you. We are 17 to improve you anything for your future .Your have to get 8 to change the life for yourself.”
