This girl cried when a 60-year-old man offered to marry her. She didn’t want him. She didn’t want this kind of life for herself, but it was the only way to save her family. She knew she would learn the old man’s secret and that everything would change. Daisy lived in the countryside with her parents and older brother Sam. The family was quite poor and they did all kinds of low-income jobs at one point.
They were homeless and living off the streets, but despite how difficult it was, Daisy’s parents made sure that they sent their children to school. The siblings performed very well in their academics. Fortunately, after graduating from high school, Daisy got a scholarship to study in high school, a few years later, Daisy is now 26 graduating from college and working as a secretary. She wanted to start a family of her own as soon as possible, but unfortunately, no man wanted her. You see, many men asked Daisy to go on a date with them, but when she told them about her background, they cut off communication with her.
They wanted nothing to do with a woman from such a poor background. They felt daisy, wouldn’t love them sincerely, and would only be with them for money. Daisy’s brother wasn’t left out, or all the women he approached spoke to him about his financial status. One day this family got a big surprise. One day, Daisy’s parents received a handwritten letter from a 60-year-old man stating that he wanted to marry Daisy when they saw the man’s name.
They were stunned. This man was the richest in the community the following week. The man visited Daisy’s parents and fed them various foods. They desperately needed it, so they refused his gifts. He also promised to take good care of them.
It seemed that their suffering would now be over, but it would come with a huge sacrifice, the happiness of their daughter. The couple called Daisy and told her all about the old man Daisy was in a difficult position. She thought about the man she would like to spend the rest of her life with, and this old man didn’t even come close, but when she thought about how much her family was suffering, did she have a choice? Would it be right to turn down this proposal if it was the only thing that could save herself and her family, Daisy thought, so she called her parents and told them. I will do anything for my family.
I will marry the old man the next day. Daisy traveled home and her family got another letter from the old man saying he would come to the house early the next morning to see Daisy that morning. Daisy’s parents made sure she wore her best outfit. Daisy was scared. What did the man look like? Would he treat her nicely? Would she even love him?
Well, all her fears disappeared. The moment she saw the man she knew it would be okay between them. The old man didn’t look great and his face was wrinkled, but his personality made up for it. He was very kind and humble, he was witty and Daisy learned a lot from him. They spoke as if they had been friends for a long time and soon they were playing like children.
The family had planned wedding date and Daisy was a happy bride for her, she didn’t mind if the man was a lot older than her parents and she didn’t care about his wealth. She just wanted to share her life with him. The old man continued to visit Daisy, and as the day went on she became more comfortable with him. She loved his smart nature and the way he respected and cared for her family. Finally, it was the morning of the wedding daisy stood before her husband and took her wedding vows, but her mind was filled with fear and tears streamed down her cheeks.
Was this real or a dream she had to wake up from? Would things continue to be pleasant or was a catastrophe waiting for her on this apparently beautiful road? After a few hours, the wedding came to an end. The staff drove Daisy to one of the old man’s luxurious homes where he and his bride could perform their wedding. Daisy took a quick shower and sat on the bed without saying a word to her husband.
She was anxious. She had never been intimate with a man before and she didn’t know if the night would go well. Let me shower the old man gently tap daisy’s shoulders and after 30 minutes went to the bathroom when he still hadn’t returned to the room. Daisy fell asleep three hours later, Daisy awoke suddenly and was startled to hear the shower running. What was he still doing there?
Was he planning something bad? Is this the point of the story where she would pick up her bags and Daisy would run, wondering just as the bathroom door opened and the young and beautiful man walked out? He approached Daisy with the prettiest smile the young woman had ever seen. Daisy was scared and she shook like a leaf as her eyes deceived her. Was this some kind of magic daisy trying to scream, but the young man put a finger to her lips and said, Hey.
It’s me: Daisy recognized her husband’s voice, but she didn’t believe it was him. Just then, the man pulled Daisy into his arms and kissed her. It was fierce, slow, and passionate for a split. Second, Daisy was carried away by the kiss, but when she regained consciousness, she broke away from the kiss. What kind of joke is this, get off me. I do not know you.
Daisy screamed and tears streamed from her eyes. She rushed to the bathroom, thinking her husband was there, but it was empty. Then she turned to the young man and screamed. I don’t care if he looks old. I love him.
He makes me happy. I want to share my life with him. So please give me back, my husband Daisy thought the young man tricked her into marrying the old man so he could have her later. Why didn’t you have the nerve to come to me yourself? Do you think that having power and wealth gives you the right to treat and use people as you please?
Please take me to my husband. I can’t stand being away from him. Daisy fell to the ground and cried hard. The young man knelt beside her and tapped her shoulder lightly. He explained to Daisy that he was indeed her husband and that he was never old.
Instead, he wore makeup that made him feel. Look that way, but Daisy didn’t believe him. It’s me, my love. I am the one I am here for you and I love you so much too. The man then said he told all the wonderful memories and conversations they had, but nothing convinced Daisy that he was indeed her husband, the young man told Daisy.
There’s one more thing she needed to know. He told her that he first met her in the office when he came to work for a business meeting with her boss. Daisy had also been at the meeting since she was the secretary. The young man told Daisy that during that meeting he fell in love with her wit, smile, and humility. I asked your boss to tell me more about you and he said you are selflessly honest, humble, and truthful.
He was right. You loved me for who I am and not everything I own and that’s what I was looking for. said the young man, but Daisy still didn’t believe him at the time. The young man tapped his fingers and two makeup. Artists walked into the room and approached Daisy.
These women transformed me from a young man into an old man, and I did it all because I wanted to find true love and I found that in you, the young man was sitting on a chair. Then he tapped his fingers again and the makeup artist started working on his face daisy was in awe as the makeup artist, the young man slowly transformed into the older man after three hours, the job was done and the man now looked exactly like the older Man. Daisy married Daisy and immediately burst into tears. She ran into the man’s open arms and they shared a warm and firm hug. It’s you, it really is you now, it doesn’t matter if you look young or old.
I’m just glad it’s you. I’m just happy, you’re the man I married. I promise you today that you will never regret loving me, daisy, said and kissed her husband as the makeup artists cheered them on ever since. These two lived happily ever after.
