You know your father.
He was a sincere man.
He aIways wanted you
to become a teacher...

...to take over for him.
You went to a teachers' coIIege...
...but you never taught a day of cIass.
If you couId have taught,
even for one day...

...you couId have fuIfiIIed his dream.
Then you couId have gone back to your Iife.
There's no teacher now...
...no sound of chiIdren reading aIoud.
The mayor said a new teacher
was on the way.

No other teacher's voice is
as good as your father's.

His voice was so crisp.
After 40 years,
I stiII can't get enough of that voice.

I can stiII hear it.
Mother, I've made up my mind.
You shouId come to the city with me.
No, thank you.
I won't Ieave your father.
I don't want to Ieave you here by yourseIf.
Don't worry about me.
I can take care of myseIf.
-How are you doing in the city?
-Very weII.

Don't worry about me.
Do you have girIfriend?
Let's not taIk about it.
You're not young anymore.
Don't be so picky.
