Like A Princess|مثل یک پرنسس


 

Adam worked in an office and his wife was a nurse.

He gave a ride every morning to his wife Terry. Every time Adam dropped Terry in front of her work, he jumped out of his seat and opened the car door for her.

This door opening became a hospital’s first story: “Lucky Terry; has the most romantic husband, even after years of marriage he still opens the car door for her.”

They always reminded Terry how fortunate she was in life: “Having an idealistic husband who respects his wife and treats her like a princess is one in a million, you should be very grateful Terry.”

But the truth was that my car was getting old and had an issue with its passenger door. It was impossible to open the door from inside and I had to jump out and open the door for my poor wife.

Being busy at daily jobs didn’t allow me to fix it for months. Terry never complained about the door, somehow she loved me opening the door for her and I didn’t mind the credit of being the most respected man in front of her colleagues.

I eventually fixed the door one day but never stopped opening the door for Terry. That was the smallest thing I could do to make her smile every morning.

Years passed and one day Terry said: “I feel so bad that every day you have to jump out to open the door. Aren’t you going to fix the door?”
I smiled and said: “The car’s door has been fixed for years. Thanks to my scrap car that taught me how to treat my love like a princess.”

  1. The husband fixed the car’s door for years and his wife never noticed because of the power of love. Thanks for posting another love story

  2. It really can be the little things that make people smile, too. I love how this shows the whole ‘two sides of a story’ element; what others see, and what the reason (at least initially) really was behind it. Very sweet story  ♥
