Coffee with Salt
At the end of the party, he found courage to invite her to have coffee with him. She was surprised, but out of politeness, promised. They sat in a nice coffee shop, he was too nervous to say anything, she too felt uncomfortable. The coffee arrived and suddenly, he asked the waiter. "Would you please get me some salt? I`d like to put it in my coffee!"

He took a couple of sips and said, "When I was a little boy, I lived near the sea, I liked playing in the sea! I can still remember the taste of the sea.. This salty coffee...every time I drink it, I always think of my childhood, think of my hometown... I miss my hometown so much... I miss my parents who are still out there." While saying this, tears filled his eyes. She was deeply touched.

The rest was just like any other beautiful love story: the princess married to the prince, and they lived a very happy married life. She found that he was tolerant, kind hearted, warm & caring. And yes! every time she made coffee for him, she put some salt in the coffee, just the way he liked it! After 40 years of marital bliss, he died after a short illness. One day, she found a letter he had left for her:

"My dearest, Please forgive me, but I lied to you.. Only once.. Remember the first time we met? I was so nervous, I asked for salt instead of sugar! I never thought that could bring about such a frank and intimate conversation between the two of us! I never liked the salty coffee, as a matter of fact I hate it! What a strange bad taste.. But since you made it for me with so much love, I drank it all my life!
- still madly in love with you"
