Love Story:
 

           A Chinese love story from the Han period tells of a man who was separated from his wife by a vast distance. The man sends a pair of carp back to his wife who when cut opened for cooking preparation finds a love not saying “Eat well to keep fit” and “Missing you and forget me not”.
