Surat Cinta

Ajat

Kamu mau menolong saya, kan?

Karna

Iya

Ajat

Beginisi Emot, keponakan saya, yang tinggal di Cicadas itu naksir anak Pak
Haji. Nah, untuk mengungkapkan perasaan hatinya, dia bermaksud berkirim
surat. Tapi dia tidak bisa ngarang. Malah menyuruh saya. Saya kan bingung
mau nulis apa. Sekarang tolong Karna sajalah yang membuat suratnya.

Karna

Kamu ini ada-ada aja, Jat. Saya buat surat?

Ajat

Iyaiya

Karna

Lalu ditujukannya untuk siapa?

Ajat

Itu mah tidak penting, Karna. Pokoknya Karna harus mewakili isi hati seorang
laki-laki yang sedang jatuh cinta. Eh, Karna, dengan bahasa yang puitis dan
berbunga-bunga, saya pikir itu lebih bagus.

Karna

Yang minta tolong dibuatkan surat cinta teh Ajat atau.?

Ajat

Alaaaah untuk keponakan saya atuh, Karna mah jangan lihat si Emot, tapi
lihat saya. Sobatmu. Kamu mau menolongnya kan?

Karna

(mengangguk)

Ajat

Menolong si Emot, menolong juga saya.

Karna

Lalu alamatnya ditujukan kepada siapa?

Ajat

Alaaahhitu mah tidah penting! Kosongkan saja. Atau begini sajakepada


yang terhormat adinda tercinta. Atau.ataualaaahhh yang penting mah
isinya! Isi hati seorang laki-laki yang mengatakan cinta.

Karna

Boleh.

Ajat

Nah begitu! Nih (memberikan kertas, pulpen, dan tinta). Eh, lupa. Nama
pengirimnya juga jangan disebutkan. Tulis saja di sana, dari kakanda seorang,
gitu.

Karna

Curiga euyjangan-jangan surat pesanan kamu, Ajat.

Ajat

Kalau bukan buat si Emot, saya juga tidak mau, Karna. Buat surat cinta, malah
menyuruh orang lain.

Translation
Ajat

You will help me, won't you?

Karna

Yes

Ajat

It's like that Emot, my nephew, who lives in Cicadas wants to date Pak
Haji's daughter. Well, to express his feelings he wants to write a letter. But he
can't write. That's why he asked me. And I have absolutely no idea what to
write. Could you please write that letter?

Karna

You must be kidding? Me writing the letter?

Ajat

Yesyes

Karna

And to whom shall it be addressed to?

Ajat

That's not important, Karna. All you have to do is to represent the feelings of a
man who is in love. And, Karna, I think it should be in poetical, flowery
language.

Karna

Who wants me to help writing that letter, you or...?

Ajat

Come on it's for my nephew. But don't think of Emot, instead think of me,
your friend. You are willing to help me, aren't you?

Karna

(nods)

Ajat

Helping Emot, helps me too.

Karna

And to whom shall I address it to?

Ajat

Come on that's not important! Just leave it empty. Or like this To my


dearest beloved one. Or.or no, the content is important! The heart
feelings of a man saying that he has fallen in love.

Karna

Okay.

Ajat

Great! Here (takes paper, a fountain pen, and ink). Oh, I forgot. Don't
mention the name of the sender. Just write here, [that it is] from a man, okay.

Karna

Hey, I am getting suspicious could the letter perhaps be commissioned by


you, Ajat?

Ajat

If it were not for Emot, I wouldn't ask you, Karna. Asking someone else to
write a love letter instead!
