Military: A beautiful true love story

One day, a young guy and a young girl fell in love.

But the guy came from a poor family. The girl’s parents weren’t too happy.

So the young man decided not only to court the girl but to court her parents as well. In time, the parents saw that he was a good man and was worthy of their daughter’s hand.

But there was another problem: The man was a soldier. Soon, war broke out and he was being sent overseas for a year. The week before he left, the man knelt on his knee and asked his lady love, “Will you marry me?” She wiped a tear, said yes, and they were engaged. They agreed that when he got back in one year, they would get married.

But tragedy struck. A few days after he left, the girl had a major vehicular accident. It was a head-on collision.

When she woke up in the hospital, she saw her father and mother crying. Immediately, she knew there was something wrong.

She later found out that she suffered brain injury. The part of her brain that controlled her face muscles was damaged. Her once lovely face was now disfigured. She cried as she saw herself in the mirror. “Yesterday, I was beautiful. Today, I’m a monster.” Her body was also covered with so many ugly wounds.

Right there and then, she decided to release her fiancé from their promise. She knew he wouldn’t want her anymore. She would forget about him and never see him again.

For one year, the soldier wrote many letters—but she wouldn’t answer. He phoned her many times but she wouldn’t return her calls.

But after one year, the mother walked into her room and announced, “He’s back from the war.”

The girl shouted, “No! Please don’t tell him about me. Don’t tell him I’m here!”

The mother said, “He’s getting married,” and handed her a wedding invitation.

The girl’s heart sank. She knew she still loved him—but she had to forget him now.

With great sadness, she opened the wedding invitation.

And then she saw her name on it!

Confused, she asked, “What is this?”

That was when the young man entered her room with a bouquet of flowers. He knelt beside her and asked, “Will you marry me?”

The girl covered her face with her hands and said, “I’m ugly!”

The man said, “Without your permission, your mother sent me your photos. When I saw your photos, I realized that nothing has changed. You’re still the person I fell in love. You’re still as beautiful as ever. Because I love you!”

  • Vennela April 20, 2012, 3:17 am

    Heart touching.

  • Ladi April 18, 2012, 2:20 pm

    Hmm I was thrown off balance when I read this story and though am hardened when it comes to love, my soul melted. I was almost in tears at such magnitude of love. With everything she went through and how ugly she felt she was, the soldier still loved her. If this story is real then the soldier is a real man. Where are all the real men these days who are not bent on sex and a woman with a great body. Real love knows no bounds and can catch the worse than a grenade. Kudos to the writer, you deserve a huge hug. I love this story with all my heart.

  • Ugbana Joy April 18, 2012, 10:20 am

    So touching, does this kind love still exist?

  • Tina April 18, 2012, 9:50 am

    True love exists. She is such a lucky girl, happy for her.

  • Joon April 15, 2012, 11:23 pm

    Very touching. Lost many comrades but I came back with only a scar to remind me of WW2. My girlfriend didn’t care if I was wounded, she still loves me. Thank you for sharing.

  • Bayaezziane April 14, 2012, 10:06 am

  • Stella April 14, 2012, 1:53 am

  • Santa Gajmere March 27, 2012, 10:13 pm

  • Praise March 27, 2012, 6:45 pm

    It’s a fabluous storyline, I realize love over come all obstacles, but, does this happen in real life?

  • Yaro March 27, 2012, 9:02 am

    This is pathetic at the same time encouraging. It is true love. This makes me remember my story… In 2006 I was in love. I was to complete my university degree and to get married. Two weeks to my final year exam, I had an accident that almost cost my two legs. After 8 months of intensive treatment I was able to manage to walk. About one year after the accident, my left leg was broken again. This was the painful moment of my life, my baby decided to leave me. I begged. I even asked my friends to help begging her for me but it was over.

    I am fine now but I find it difficult to trust and love another girl though I fully understand that each girl is different.

  • Shruthi March 23, 2012, 11:33 pm

    I want a man like dat too!!
    That girl is so lucky

  • Aamir February 23, 2012, 4:50 pm

    I am shocked to read that, a girl Sarita saying that “is this type of story exist now?” Sarita, you don’t know what love is? When you are in love you will come to know. Love this story.

    Manifestation of true love, the kind of Christ’s. No force is as strong as that of love. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son to us all.
