Salty Coffee

  He invited her to have coffee with him. She was surprised but due to being polite,she promised. They sat in a nice coffee shop. He was too nervous to say anything.

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. It was 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 lived near 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,my hometown,and my parents who are still living there. She was deeply touched then she also spoke about her hometown,her childhood and her family.

That was a really beautiful beginning of their love. They continued to date. She found that actually he was a man who met all her demands. He was kind-hearted,warm and careful.

Thanks to his salty coffee! They married. And,every time she made coffee for him,she put some salt in the coffee. After 40 years,he passed away and left her a letter which said,My dearest,please forgive my whole life's lie. Remember the first time we dated? I was so nervous at that time,actually I wanted some sugar,but said salt. It was hard for me to change so I just went ahead. I didn't like the salty coffee then. What a strange bad taste! But I have had the salty coffee for my whole life,for it was prepared by you. Her tears made the letter totally wet.
