coffee love
He first met her at a party. She was so wonderful, with her big brown eyes and dark silky hair, her steps reveal confidence. many guys chasing after her but only him who saw abit of loneliness sparkling in her eyes.

He encouraged his lips to greet her with his ordinary life and said "Have a coffee with me sometimes." She was surprised by his courage and yet saw the sincerest eyes of him, so she nodded.

The days after they sat in a nice coffee shop, he was too nervous to say anything. She started to feel uncomfortable and thought, please, let me go 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 do you have this hobby?". He replied, "When I was a little boy, I used to live near the sea. I liked playing in the sea, I could feel the taste of the sea, just like the taste of the salty coffee. Now every time I have the salty coffee, I always think of my childhood, think of my hometown. I miss my hometown so much, I miss my parents who are still living there".

While 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 talk about his homesickness, he must be a man who loves home, cares about home, has responsibility of home. Then she also started to speak, spoke about her faraway hometown, her childhood, her family. That was a beautiful beginning of their story.

They continued to date. She found that actually he was a man who meets all her demands; he had tolerance, was kind hearted, warm, careful.

He was such a good person but she almost missed him, thanks to his salty coffee. Then the story was just like every beautiful love story, the princess married the prince, then they lived a 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 it. 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 was hard for me to change so I just went 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 had the salty coffee for my whole life!

Since I knew you, I never felt 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 for my whole life, 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.
