“…But when are you going to say ‘I love you’ to your son?” Bongsun bertanya kepada salah satu kakek dan nenek pemilik rumah di desa itu.
“We never say anything like that to him,” jawab nenek.
“Not even once?”
“People from back in the day doesn’t know what love is,” kakek menimpali, “so they don’t know what the phrase ‘I love you’ is.”
“So how do you express your love?”
“If you don’t say it, doesn’t it feel empty?”
“We just laugh and smile as we live our lives,” ujar kakek itu sambil tetap tersenyum.
