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 her tears and 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!”
