Through our lives, we can gain a lot and lose so much. But being honest should always be with us, as honesty is always regarded as a virtue. Every time I talk about the topic, something crowds in my mind as if it had just happened.
I was 16 when one morning, Dad told me I could drive him to Mijas and then take the car in a nearby garage to get it serviced. At that time, I had just passed the driving test, and I hardly had a chance to use the car, so I said yes without hesitation.
I drove my father to Mijas, promising to pick him up again at 4 pm, then I went to a
nearby garage, and put the car in there. Since I had several hours to spare, I decided to go to a movie theater near the garage to see the movie. However, I was so absorbed in the plot of the movie that I forgot the time. When the last movie finished, I looked at my watch： 6 pm. I was two hours late!
I thought my father would be very angry if he knew what I was doing. And he would never let me drive again. So I decided to make up an excuse. Then, I drove to the appointed place, my father was sitting in a corner, waiting patiently. I first apologized for being late, then told him that I wanted to get there as soon as possible, but that something was wrong with some of the main parts of the car.
I would never forget the way he looked at me. “I'm very disappointed that you thought you had to lie to me, Jason.” My father looked at me again and said, “When you didn't show up on time, I called the gas station and asked if there was anything wrong They told me you never picked up the car. So, you see, I know there's nothing wrong with the car at all."
A wave of guilt swept over me and I had to admit the fact that I had gone to the movies and that was the real reason why I was late.
But father, it's exactly eighteen miles home from here , and it's dark. You can't walk back. " I begged.
A wave of guilt swept over me.
I had to admit the fact that I had gone to the movies and that was the real reason why I was late. My father listened intently, and a wave of sadness passed over his face. He said, “I was very angry, not for you, but for myself. You see, I've learned that I failed as a father. If you still feel like you have to lie to me after all these years, I failed because I raised a son who couldn't even tell his father the truth and I'm going to walk home and reflect on some of the things I've done wrong over the years.”
“But father, it's exactly eighteen miles home from here, and it's dark. You can't walk back.” I begged.
My protests, my apologies, and whatever I said were in vain. I had to let my father walk out of the car and was about to learn the most painful lesson of my life. My father began to walk along the dusty road. I quickly jumped into the car and followed him closely, hoping he would be kind enough to stop. I prayed all the way and told him how sad and sorry I was. But he took no notice of me, and continued to be silent and thoughtful, his face pained. I followed him for the whole eighteen miles. Watching my father suffer so much, both physically and emotionally, was the saddest and most painful experience I have ever faced. But it was also the most successful lesson of my life and I never lied to him again.
