A Salty Love Story

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 being polite, she promised. They sat in a nice
coffee shop, he was too nervous to say anything, she felt
uncomfortable, she 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 you have this hobby?
He replied: ” when I was a little boy, I was living 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
tell out 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 really nice talk, also 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 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 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 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, still want to know you and have
you for my whole life, even though I have to drink the salty coffee
Her tears made the letter totally wet.
Someday, someone asked her: what’s the taste of salty coffee? It’s
sweet. She replied.
Love is not to forget but 2 forgive
Not to see but to understand
Not to hear but to listen
Not to let go but HOLD ON !!!!
