PART II - CHAPTER XX

Wang Da Ma answered obstinately, grasping the bundle and the basket firmly in either hand:
" Now then! Do you stand there and say that? Did I not take you from your mother's arms into these arms when you were scarce a foot in length and as naked as a fish? Have you not fed from my breasts? What you were born, that you are, and your son is your son. Let it be as I say!"
My brother said he scarcely knew what to reply. It is true that she has known us all our lives and is more to us than a servant. While he hesitated she moved her bundle and her basket into the little hall, and grumbling and panting, for she grows old and fat now, she fumbled within herself for her purse. When she had found it she turned to quarrel mightily with the wheelbarrow man over the price of the fare, and thus she established herself as in her home.
This she has done for my mother's sake. It is absurd to notice over-much the behaviour of a servant, nevertheless my brother laughs with an edge of tenderness in his laughter when he speaks of her. He is pleased that she is come and that in her arms his son will sleep and play.
This morning she came to pay her respects to me, and she was as always. One would think she had lived with my brother in this foreign house
