The story of a rich woman who once rejected a poor man has gone viral online. The woman rejected the man when they were young because she thought that he couldn't afford to keep up with her lifestyle. But a decade after the rejection, the two got the chance to meet once again.
Read on to see what happened:
A poor boy was in love with a rich man's daughter.
One day, the boy proposed to her, and the girl said, Your monthly salary is equivalent to my daily expenses. How can I be involved with you? She went on, How could you have thought of that? I can never love you, so forget about me and get engaged to someone else of your level.
But for some reason, the boy could not forget her so easily. Roughly 10 years later, they stumbled into each other in a shopping mall.
She immediately recognized the man and said,
"Hey, how are you? I'm now married to a very smart man, and his salary is $15,700 per month! Can you beat that?"
The man, hearing those painful words from the woman he used to care for, held back his tears and said nothing.
Not a few moments passed when the woman's husband came back to her side. But before the lady could say a word, her husband immediately recognized the man she was talking to and said,"Sir? G-good afternoon! I see you've met my wife!
Good afternoon too, Mr..., said the man.
The husband then turned to his wife and said, "Dear, I'd like you to meet my boss. He owns the $100 million project I've been working on!"
The woman, left flabbergasted by the turn of events, was not able to say anything back.
The man just smiled and said,"Well, Mr. Carter. I've got to get going. I have important things to attend to. It was splendid seeing you today. Have a great day"
For a minute, the couple just stared at the man as he walked away.
Having been over her initial shock, the woman asked her husband in disbelief,"That was your boss?"
"Yes, dear. He's a very humble person but his life is quite a sad story. They said he once loved a lady but she dumped him because he was just a poor boy back then. Because of that, he worked really hard. And because he's smart, he became successful. Now he's a multimillionaire who earns millions of dollars a month. Unfortunately, though, he couldn't move on from that heartbreak and remains unmarried still."
The husband went on and said, "How lucky would that lady have been if she had married that man?"
The lady looked in total shock and couldn't utter a word.
