Cute Love Story
The Salty Coffee
He met her at a party. She was so outstanding. There
were many guys chasing after her while he was so normal.
Nobody paid any attention to him.
At the end of the party, he invited her to have coffee
with him. She was surprised but she accepted the offer
out of politeness. They sat in a nice coffee shop and
he was too nervous to say anything.
She felt uncomfortable and thought to herself, "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 for his strange request! His face
turned red but still, he put the salt in his coffee and
She asked him curiously, "Why do you add salt to
He replied, "When I was a little boy, I lived near
the sea. I liked playing in the sea where I could feel
the taste of the sea which is just like the taste of the
salty coffee. Now every time I have the salty coffee,
I always think of my childhood and my hometown. I miss
my hometown so much. I miss my parents who are still living
While saying that, tears filled his eyes. She was deeply
touched. That must have been his true feelings from the
bottom of his heart. A man who can express his homesickness
must be a man who loves home, cares about home and takes
responsibility of his home... Then she also started to
talk about her faraway hometown, her childhood and her
That was a really nice talk and also a beautiful beginning
to their story. They continued to date. She found that
he was actually a man who meets all her criteria of a
good partner; he had tolerance, was kind hearted, warm
and careful. He was such a good person but she almost
missed him! Luckily, his salty coffee brought them together!
The story became like every other beautiful love story
where the princess married the prince and they lived a
happy life together... 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 and left her a letter
"My dearest, please forgive me, forgive my whole
life's lie. This was the only lie I said to you - the
salty coffee. Remember the first time we dated? I was
so nervous that I actually wanted some sugar but I said
salt. It was hard for me to change what I said 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 about anything... Now
I'm dying and I'm no longer afraid of anything so I wish
to tell you the truth. I don't like the strange bad taste
of salty coffee... But I have had salty coffee for my
whole life! Since I knew you, I never felt sorry for anything
I had ever done for you. Having you with me is my biggest
happiness throughout my whole life. If I can live for
the second time, I would still want to know you and be
with you for my whole life even though I would have to
drink the salty coffee again."
Her tears made the letter totally wet.
Someday, someone asked her, "What's the taste of
She replied, "It's sweet."
Pass this to everyone because love is not to forget but
to forgive, not to see but understand, not to hear but
to listen, not to let go but HOLD ON!!!!
