Mom in the Computer 12

“Wow, she’s so pretty! Thank you Mom. I also draw you a picture, look!” I showed my drawing to Mom, and she took a picture of it with her phone.


<Traditional Chinese>

電腦裏的媽媽 12



To be continued …



But one day, Mom took out a ticket and said that she was going to take a flight. I asked her, would Dad and I go with her? Mom said no. I was upset.


Later on, Dad, Mom and I took a taxi to the airport. I was able to see many huge airplanes in various colors. I was so happy. But Dad was in tears.


Mom hugged me and Dad, said good bye to us and went to board the airplane. She didn’t take me and Dad together. I asked my Dad, “Will Mom come back?” Dad said, ” Yes. But it will take a while.”


“Where did Mom go? May I see her?” Two days later, I asked Dad again. Dad let me sit in front of the computer and said,”Mom is in the computer. You wait for a while, she will come.”

6.我在电脑前睡着了。醒来的时候是早上了。我下了床,跑到电脑旁, 没有看到妈妈。

I fell in sleep in front of the computer. When I woke up, it was the next morning already. I got off my bed and ran to the computer, but I didn’t find Mom.

7.爸爸走过来,笑着对我说,”妈妈现在在睡觉呢。” 我们现在是早上,妈妈在的地方是晚上。

Dad came to me and said with a smile,” Mom is sleeping now.” We are in the morning, but Mom’s place is at night.


Not seeing Mom, I was unhappy at school. My teacher asked me,”Xiao Hong, why you are upset?” I answered,”I miss Mom.” The teacher asked again,” where did your Mom go?” I answered, ” Mom lives in the computer.”


That night, I sat in front of the computer again, drawing and waiting for Mom. Doing that would prevent me from falling sleep again.


After a little while, Dad turned on the computer, and Mom is inside it. “Mom, Mom, I miss you! Why don’t you come home?” I asked Mom loudly.


“Xiao Hong, Mom miss you too. Mom have to work here for half an year, then I’ll fly back home. See? I bought a doll for you!”


“Wow, she’s so pretty! Thanks Mom. I also draw you a picture, look!” I showed my drawing to Mom.


“Well done, Xiao Hong. I’ll keep it.” Said Mom. Her eyes welled up.

Dad asked me from aside, “Xiao Hong, is the square you drew our home? The three people inside are Mom, Dad and you?”


I told Dad,”No, the square is your computer, I want to move in there with you, so we can all live with Mom!”

    Is 她用手机照了下来 translated? It seems like the English translation only runs up until this point.
