“I love you” he told me. “Until when?” I answered him back. I can see in his eyes that he was amazingly clueless that I would answer that. He might as well expects that I’ll say it back because that is the usual thing. The most common thing in the world lately.

I value that phrase because I am afraid that the essence of saying that you love a person will be gone. I don’t say it for fun, because when I utter those words, I swear to God it comes from the bottom of my heart. And when I say it, I really do, do love you to the moon and back.
