As Beautiful As Ever | Very True


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 ♥...
