For generations, the Su family has only boys. So when there is finally, finally, a girl born into the family, how can she not be the precious pearl in 10,000 eyes? If you guard her with your palm, what if she gets squashed? If you put her in your mouth, what if she melts?
What nonsense! Her father General Su is a famous figure across 6 countries and even if she is a girl, she may very well be a heroine who may not lose out to men.
