Even though the Khmer Rouge had blown up half of our house, Dad still lived there. He raised chickens, grew rice, and kept a big vegetable garden. At the end of one of my visits to see Dad he said, “You’re a good boy, Mop. Take this rice and these eggs, and vegetables. ” Then he loaded the food next to me in the taxi trailer. As the taxi pulled away, I looked back and saw him standing alone in front of our ruined house. I tried to smile at him, but I couldn’t. He had told me I was a good boy. He usually did not talk much, and I was not accustomed to being praised.

But we saw people die from starvation, so we “stole” rice whenever we could. ” I said. “Rice is ready to harvest in a field I saw about a mile north of here. ” “OK, I’m ready,” I said as bravely as I could. When we got to the field, Van Lan walked ahead of me.

It seemed to me we walked a long ways. By the time we reached our house, I felt very worldly and important. When I got into bed that night, I raised my legs up toward the ceiling. I was glad I didn’t have to do that all night long. My mother was kind, but she made me behave, too. She scolded me when I got mad at my brothers. I hated their teasing me whenever our neighboor Deenah and her family stopped by to visit. ” Of course Deenah was not really my wife, but our marriage had been arranged.
