Salty Coffee

7:41:00 AM

He met her at a party. She was so outstanding, Her hair blonde in color but with a touch of browns in it, her color was not like snow white but was a little brownish white yet she was looking like an angel, wearing a black skirt with a pink top with bangles in her hands and Kajal in her eyes without makeup but yet so beautiful. Many guys chasing after her, while he was so normal and casual, nobody paid attention to him.

At the end of the party, he from all the guys over there invited her to have coffee with him, she was ashtonished and surprised by this offer but due to being polite, she promised. They sat in a nice coffee shop, it was rainning outside and was a die for amosphere around so calm and just the sound of rain falling. He was too nervous to say anything as the divine beauty of her was mesmerizing his words and giving him feelings like he never felt before, he had so much to say, so much to express yet had no words thus he sat silent, she felt uncomfortable, and she thought to herself, “Please, say something or let me go home…”

Suddenly out of no where 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 and he started to sweat but still, he put the salt in his coffee and drank it. She got confused and asked him curiously, “Salt in a coffee ? Is this your hobby or are you diabetic or something” He replied, “When I was a little boy, I lived 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, think of all the things i used to have, my friends, my family, my life it makes me remind all of them and many more, I miss my hometown so much, I miss my parents who are still living there. I really do miss everything which i left behind especially the place which i still call my Home.” 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, a man worth acknowldging… Then she also started to speak, spoke about her faraway hometown, her childhood, her family, her life...

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 met all her demands; he had tolerance, was kind hearted, warm, caring, knew how to respect the things which he cared for, and even he was extremely romantic, and had a glow in his eyes which always made her think about him even when he wasn't there. She fell in love with him and so did he and then the story was just like every beautiful love story, the princess married to the prince, and 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 of being happily married, he passed away, left her a letter which said, “My dearest wife, please forgive me, forgive me if i ever hurt you, forgive me for all the lies i told you but the fact is this that the only lie I said to you was—the salty coffee. Remember the first time we dated? I asked you for a coffe because i fell in love with you on the first sight of your beauty, first sight of your eyes made me go wild, I wanted to hold you hand,I wanted you to love me for all your life,I wanted to be your one and only,I wanted to paint you face in the sky, I wanted you in my life,I wanted to be with you all my days and all my nights, I wanted to live with you forever, I only wanted to be with you, I wanted love, I wanted to share it only with you, but how could I, I was a normal guy i had nothing in me which would amaze a beautiful and sensible girl like you, i was so nervous, actually I wanted some sugar, but I said salt. It was hard for me to change as you looked in my eyes, 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, you know what whenever i tried to tell you the truth while looking into your eyes everything gets too complicated for me, have you ever gone from a dark room into the a bright room. You cannot open your eyes because of the pain from the bright light. That is what it is like for me to look into your eyes. The radiance and light given of by your soul is overpowering. I had lived in darkness for to long and I am not use to the light. Your light shined 100 times brighter than any other person I had ever met. So I shuddered at the prospect of looking into your soul. I might get lost and never come back. That is the final frontier of man, To glimpse into the soul of your lover and to tell her something which meant alot to her so I was too afraid to tell you the truth, as I have promised not to lie to you for anything… Now I’m dying, I am afraid of nothing as am always loosing you but even after my death your love will always remain in my heart and would englighten my soul, so before dying 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.You erase my fears, angel, And made me think that I could have the world If I want to, Even if that positivity lasted for a moment, You granted the impossible in my life. What more could I ask for? 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?” She replied, “It’s sweet.”
