"Do you hear that?"
"Hear what?"
"That. When I rest my hand against your cheek. The sound of sunsets, still swimming pools. When you're walking by a beach after midnight. When you put your earphones in your ears, but no music plays for the first few seconds. The noise-cancelling ones, by the way. That sound when you blink or smile. You know, that."
"Um, those things don't make sounds."
"Exactly. Silence, but so powerful."
