The Salty Coffee
He met her on a party, she was so outstanding,
many guys chasing after her,while he was so normal, nobody
paid attention to him. At the end of the party, he invited
her to have coffee with him, she was surprised, but due
to politeness, she promised. They sat in a nice coffee shop,
he was too nervous to say anything, she felt uncomfortable,
she thought, please, let me back home. Suddenly he asked
the waiter: would you please give me some salt? I'd like
to put it in my coffee.
Everybody stared at him, so strange! His face turned red,
but, still, he put the salt in his coffee and
drank it. She asked him curiously: why you have
this hobby? He replied: when I was a little
boy, I was living near the sea, I like playing
in the sea, I could felt the taste of the sea,
salty and bite, just like the taste of the salty
coffee. Now every time I have the salty coffee,
I will think of my childhood, think of my hometown,
I miss my hometown so much, I miss my parents
who still living there. Saying that, tears filled
his eyes. She was deeply touched. That's his
true feeling, from the bottom of his heart.

"A man who can tell out his homesick, he must be a
man loves home, cares about home, has responsibility of
home," she thought. Then she also started to talk,
talked about her faraway hometown, her childhood, her family.
That was a really nice talk, also a beautiful beginning
of their story. They continue to date. She found actually
he was a man who meets all her demands: he was tolerance,
kind hearted, warm, careful...he was such a good guy but
she almost missed him! Thanks to his salty coffee!
Then the story was just like every beautiful love story:
the princess married to the prince, then they
were living the happy life...And, every time
she made coffee for him, she put some salt in
the coffee, as she knew that's the way he liked.
After 40 years, he passed away, left her a
letter which said: "My dearest, please
forgive me, forgive my whole life lie. This
was the only lie I said to you, the salty coffee.
Remember the first time we dated? I was so nervous
at that time, actually I wanted some sugar,
but I said salt. It's hard for me to change
so I just go ahead. I never thought that could
be the start of our communication! I tried to
tell you the truth many times in my life, but
I was too afraid to do that, as I have promised
not to lie to you for anything..Now I'm dying,
I afraid of nothing so I tell you the truth:
I don't like the salty coffee, what a strange
bad taste..but I have the salty coffee for my
whole life since I knew you, I never feel sorry
for anything I do for you. Having you with me
is my biggest happiness for my whole life.

If I can live for the second time, I still want to know
you and have you as my whole life wife, even though I have
to drink the salty coffee again."
Her tears made the letter totally wet. Someday, someone
asked her: What's the taste of salty coffee?
It's sweet. She replied.
