mother's worry

 

transcript

 

妈妈:你怎么想啊?你真舍得让海藻也走啊?

Mom: What do you think of it? Do you really want to let Hai zao leave?

 

爸爸: 那怎么办啊?

Dad: Then what am I supposed to do?

 

妈妈:我担心海藻比担心海萍要多。海萍从小天不怕,地不怕的,敢打敢冲。做事情像个男孩子一样有担当,也知道护家,护着妹妹。她出去闯我还能放点儿心。

Mom: I’m worried about Hai zao more than Hai ping. Hai ping was never scared of anything since she was little, she dared to fight for herself, and she was as responsible as a boy. She knew to protect her family, to protect her sister. I feel more relieved about her working in another city.

妈妈:这个啊,整个是海萍的跟屁虫,没脑子,没主意,我想把她留在我们身边,跟我们过过小日子算了。她那样子也不像是有什么大发展的。

Mom: But Hai zao is completely a shadow of Hai ping. She has no wisdom or her own idea. I want to keep her with us, just for a peaceful ordinary life with us. She doesn’t seem to have a big future.

 

爸爸:女大不中留,她要真是想跟海萍走,你我能拦得住吗?

Dad: A grown girl can’t be kept at home. If she really wants to go with Hai ping, we can’t stop her.
