It means a lot…

Tono berjalan pulang dari sekolah suatu hari, ketika itu dia melihat satu pria di depannya tersandung dan menjatuhkan semua buku yang dibawanya, bersama dengan dua sweater, stik baseball, sarung tangan dan sebuah tape recorder kecil. Tono berlutut dan membantu si pria mengambil buku yang tersebar.
On his way home one day, Tono saw a young man stumbled and dropped all his book he was carrying, two sweters, baseball stick, a gloves, and a small tape recorder. Tono helped him with all his books.
Karena mereka akan melalui jalan yang sama, si Tono membantu membawa sebagian beban dari si pria. Saat mereka berjalan, Tono mengetahui nama pria itu Budi, ia suka video game, baseball dan sejarah, dan ia memiliki banyak masalah dengan mata pelajaran lain dan dia baru saja putus dengan pacarnya.
Tono decided to carried some things of this young man because they are in the same way home. He is Budi, he loves video games, baseball and history, he had a lot of problems with other subjects, and he just broke up with his girlfriend.
Mereka tiba di rumah Budi, dan Tono diundang ke dalam rumah untuk berkunjung dan menonton televisi. Sore itu berlalu dengan canda tawa dan beberapa obrolan ringan, kemudian Tono pulang. Mereka terus bertemu di sekitar sekolah, makan siang bersama sekali atau dua kali, dan kedua lulus dari sekolah SMP. Mereka kemudian lulus dari SMA yang sama di mana mereka terus kontak selama bertahun-tahun. Akhirnya suatu hari Budi tanya Tono jika Tono punya waktu untuk berbincang-bincang.
When they arrived to Budi’s home, Tono was invited in and they watched TV. They spent that afternoon with laugh and few small talk till Tono went home. They kept seeing each other in school, lunch together once or twice, and graduated from Junior and Senior High School, and still kept contact. Until one day, Budi asked Tono’s time so the could talked.
Budi mengingatkan Tono, ketika mereka pertama kali bertemu. “Apakah kamu pernah bertanya-tanya mengapa aku membawa begitu banyak barang ke rumah hari itu?” Tanya Budi. “Kamu tahu, aku membawa semua barang dari loker sekolah karena aku tidak ingin meninggalkan kekacauan untuk orang lain. Aku telah mempersiapkan beberapa pil tidur ibuku dan aku akan pulang untuk melakukan bunuh diri. Tapi setelah kita menghabiskan waktu bersama-sama berbicara dan tertawa, aku menyadari bahwa jika aku telah membunuh diriku sendiri, aku akan kehilangan waktu dan banyak orang lain yang mungkin menjadi sahabatku. Jadi Ton, ketika kamu mengambil buku-buku hari itu, kamu sebenarnya melakukan lebih dari hanya sekedar membantu membawakan bukuku tapi kamu menyelamatkan hidup aku.
Budi reminded Tono about their first met. “Did you ever wonder why I was carrying so much things to my house at that time?” Budi asked. “You know, I brought all my stuffs from school’s locker because I just don’t want to left any mess for anyone. I’ve prepared some pills and I was going home to kill myself. But after we spent time together, laughed and talked, I realized that if I killed myself, I will lose time and a lot of people that maybe become my friend. So, Tono, when you took my books that day, you did more. You saved my life.”
