Dining Table - Adeline's Medal
This storyboard does not have a description.
" Go fetch my English - Chinese dictionary, it's on my bed in my room"
"Do the translation later! Sit down, Wu Mei"
"Another two years and all seven grandchildren will be sitting around this table. Won't that be wonderful?"
Big Sister asks Wu Mei to get her translation dictionary because Niang wants her to translate something.
" Is this medal for leading your class?"
Nai Nai asks Adeline to sit down and eat dinner before it gets cold. She also selects some food to send up to the nursery for Niang's children.
" Is the left side of your chest heavier, are you tilting?"
Nai Nai turns to Niang and starts to talk about her children and how they will soon all be sitting together.
"Continue studying hard and bring honour to our Yen family name."
Adeline is finally getting some attention from her father. As he spoke a hush fell upon the table. It was the first time anyone could remember Father singling her out.
Adeline flushed with pleasure and could barley swallow. She realised her father was actually teasing her, for the first time.
On the way out, he patted Adeline on the head. All the grown - ups beamed at her as they followed Wu - Mei's father out of the room. Her triumph had become her father's triumph.
