"I really like you, Midori. A lot."

"How much is a lot?"

"Like a spring bear," I Said.

"A spring bear?" Midori looked up again. "Whats that all about ? A spring bear?"

"Your walking through a field all by yourself one day in spring, and this sweet little bear cub with a velvet fur and shiny little eyes come along. And he says to you, ‘Hi, there, little lady. Want to tumble with me?’; So you and the bear cub spend the whole day in each other’s arms, tumbling down this clover-covered hill. Nice, huh?’

"Ya. Really Nice".

"Thats how much I like you."

Haruki Murakami - Norwegian Wood, pg 304.
