“No one will find out, Father,” said Mulan. She picked up her sword.
"Mulan!" said the Father. He tried to get up but had to hold on to his chair.
The daughter kissed him goodbye. "I love you, Father," she said. "Take care of yourself. Tell my brother I said goodbye." She climbed on a family horse. And off she went to join the Emperor’s army.
The father's worry was understandable. Women in China did not participate in wars back then. Furthermore, not all males may be willing to work with a woman in ancient days.
Mulan, on the other hand, was not willing to listen to any of her father's advice. She was filled with enthusiasm, dedication, and responsibility. She mentally prepared herself to fight for her country on behalf of her father.
Mulan made the decision to begin her journey. She drew her sword and attempted to begin her journey. Mulan's father tried to get out of his chair to stop her, but because of his age, he was unable to do so. Mulan greeted his father goodbye and kissed him on the cheek, saying, "I love you, Father," and "Take care of yourself."
Mulan's decision, despite her bravery, demonstrates her patriotism for her homeland. Also, it demonstrates her filial duty and affection. She mounted their family horse after asking her father to convey her farewell to her little brother. She then embarked on a journey to join the Chinese army.
