Once upon a time, there was a girl who was so beautiful that every single man in the country wished to marry her.
All of the richest men went to see her in person to ask for her hand in marriage. The beautiful girl always tested the men to see if they really loved her or not.
She constantly rejected them because she believed none of these men loved her truly as none of them passed the test. The men never told others what the test was because they didn’t want the next person to win her.
Constantly, the men didn’t pass the test and had to leave. One day a young man insisted that he was the one and that he would gain her trust.
He said that he loved her so much and he would easily pass the test. She invited him to her home and asked him to sit where he couldn’t see the entrance door.
She asked him why she should marry him.
He explained how he fell in love with her when he heard everyone in the country talking about her beauty. He said: “I would fight to have you and to show you that I love you not just for your beauty.”
The girl said: “If you are here for my beauty, you better see my sister. She is the most beautiful member of my family. Look at the entrance door.”
The young man turned his head toward the door to see the girl’s beautiful sister.
There wasn’t anyone at the door.
The girl stood up and asked him to leave. She said: “If you were in love with me you wouldn’t turn your head back to see my beautiful sister. I don’t have a sister. I was just trying to see if you truly love me. Like others, you only love whoever people say is the most beautiful girl.”
