Magic Band-Aids

Have you ever fell hard on the ground which covered by small stones on it? Tanya salah satu mahasiswa asing yang ada di kelasku. Kami telah belajar Bahasa Indonesia bersama sejak beberapa bulan yang lalu. Kami cukup dekat walau baru kenal beberapa bulan. Yeah, sure. It hurts. Aku menjawab sambil menatapnya. Lalu tiba-tiba saja matanya berlinang air mata. Aku buru-buru mendekatinya. Why, Jo? Josephine lalu menceritakan pengalaman pahitnya.

Why people here are being racist to me? Just because I'm a foreigner, doesn't mean they can judge me bad whatever they want! It feels like they throw me away and I fell to the ground that full of stones. Dia menangis tersedu-sedu. Aku merangkulnya. Erat, hingga aku bisa merasakan raganya bergetar karena hatinya sangat tergoncang atas perlakuan orang-orang Indonesia di sekitarnya. Mereka memperlakukan Josephine seperti orang asing yang tak layak hidup di lingkungan mereka. I need healer, Fa. Tell me what a magic band-aids which can cover this kind of pain. It hurts me a lot. Aku terdiam. I will be your healer, Jo. Don't worry. You have me.
