Big Sister complained, lowering her voice and motioning me to close the door. I obeyed with alacrity, happy to be included. “We should be careful, though. Niang has her spies. That new tutor-nanny she’s employed for her two children, that Miss Chien, she gives me the creeps. She is so slimy and obsequious, smiling and bowing all the time. Yesterday, she cornered me and invited me to have afternoon tea with Fourth Brother and Little Sister in their nursery. I never saw such a spread—finger sandwiches, toasted buns, chestnut cream cake, sausage rolls.

Aunt Baba told me that Japan was a strong country that had conquered most of China, including the city of Tianjin, where we lived. My three brothers were always grumbling about the Japanese classes they were required to take at school. We children were supposed to show our respect and bow whenever we ran past Japanese soldiers. Otherwise they would punish us or even kill us. Once Big Brother’s best friend was kicked and slapped by a Japanese soldier because he forgot to bow when he ran past. That morning, Ye Ye had stopped Third Brother from kicking a paper ball made of old newspapers because a photo of the Japanese emperor was visible on its surface.

She glanced at all of us smugly as she took her seat between Second Brother and Niang, full of her own self-importance at being so favored by our stepmother. Because her left arm had been paralyzed by a birth injury, her movements were slow and awkward and she liked to order me or Third Brother to carry out her chores.
