This is how you can describe what happened to this girl named Emmy Abrahamson.
The girl was born in a wealthy and prosperous family, her childhood passed in her home land in Sweden, after finishing school she moved to London where she graduated from University.
Life turned out perfectly, her education, later worked as an actress in Amsterdam and at the age of 29 she was a director and art director of an entire theater in Vienna.
It seemed like everything in her life was planned till the smallest detail except one thing, the girl was lonely.
Due to her work schedule and business trips, she was never able to find the man of her dreams. When all of her friends had already been married for a long time and had children, Emmy passed long cold evening alone.
Of course, men paid attention to the young woman but maybe she had not met the right man for her yet.
It was 2005, Emmy was already 29 and in a week her birthday was to take place. But for some reason this did not make her happy in any way. To forget about her sad thoughts the girl decided to arrange a little vacation for herself and go to Amsterdam.
Once after a busy day, the girl was sitting on a bench waiting for her friend with whom she plan to spend the rest of the evening.
She watched passers-by, couples in love and somewhere deep inside she felt envy seeing them. She was bored because there was no person with whom she could share good and bad moments in her life and at that moment she made a wish.
After all it would be her birthday soon, who knows, her wish may come true.
It was a wonderful moment which was spoiled by a poor fellow, Emmy noticed an approaching homeless man.
Usually upon seeing such people the girl ran away from them. She was just afraid of the homeless, with every step the homeless person came closer to the girl and Emmy seemed to freeze, she couldn’t move.
The homeless man turned out to be a young man despite the fact that his whole face was almost covered with a beard, he was so dirty and he smelled bad that she could smell him from far away.
Coming closer he asked what time it was, although there was a huge clock opposite the bench, the girl looked at him and immediately answer half past 5.
As Emmy recalls now, it was something inexplicable. I never made such a coincidence.
Moreover, I always stayed away from them but that day I can’t explain it. The guy’s confidence was very striking because there was such a social difference between them and he was not at all embarrassed and continued the conversation.
Since there was enough time while Emmy was waiting for her friend, she did not drive the stranger away but decided to talk to him a little bit.
Word by word they started talking and the girl felt that it was very easy for her to talk with him, he understood her perfectly and she could not stop looking into his eyes. It was strange but she felt very comfortable and the homeless man was also looking at the beautiful girl.
The conversation last for like 10 minutes when Emmy’s friend approached, All this times people looked at this couple.
Before leaving, the homeless man named Vic Kocula jokingly made an appointment which means he invited her on a date at the same place after 5 days, his confidence was outstanding and exciting. of course the girl did not plan to come to the date which they scheduled and most likely the homeless man will also forget about it.
But the next week she could not stop thinking about Vic, walking slowly she decided to pass by that same spot and watched from a far whether the homeless man would come to the date.
Surprisingly, he was already there waiting for Emmy. Their date (meeting) was just fine, they talked so much about life and got to know each other better.
Emmy now recalls with a smile that the homeless man got ready and even washed himself a bit but his hands and nails were terribly dirty, the homeless man came in a bicycle and was holding a suitcase. Then I found out that inside it were his sleeping bag and a kind of bear.
That same evening the homeless man named vic said that he had once travelled to Europe but his money quickly ran out and it didn’t work out as he planned at all.
He came from USA and he had no parents, whenever he got small earnings he would waste it on alcohol but he admitted that it was a bad habit that he could not do anything about it, so he ended up in the streets.
Moreover, he had lived in the park for more than a year. Vic understood that he was just a homeless alcoholic but when he saw Emmy, something inside him changed and since that day he had not drink alcohol at all, they talked until late in the evening.
Vic had an incredible sense of humor and the girl felt very easy with him, at the end of the evening she told vic that she was returning to Vienna the next day, the girl did not know whether they’ll ever meet again but she left him here phone number and she was polite as she left.
In Vienna, the girl did not stop remembering him, a kind of holiday romance but he is in Amsterdam and she’s in Vienna.
On the day when Emmy turned 30, the telephone rang in her house. The girl reluctantly picked up her phone expecting to hear another congratulations but instead she heard Vic’s familiar voice, her heart started beating faster and he just said hi, I remembered that you had a birthday and I decided to congratulate you personally.
The girl expected to hear simple words of congratulations but to her surprise he said that he wanted to go and visit her. No sooner she understood he was near her house, she asked how he had come and Vic answered, I had arrived by train.
He planned to come 2 days ago but he was detained by the police for stealing a chicken in a store, the girl remembered that day her whole life because since that time, vic and Emmy have become inseparable.
The man settled at the girl’s house and started looking for a job right away, from the moment of their first meeting, Vic absolutely did not drink alcohol and in a month he changed so much that no one could see a homeless person in him.
This handsome man could not be the same homeless person from the park and after overcoming some delays, in 2 years Emmy Abrahamson and Vic Kocula got married.
At first the guy worked as an electrician and in 6 years the couples had twins, Desta and Til. The man took this as a challenge, now he had to work even harder because he felt much more responsible as a man and father in the family.
He started a small repair company, 15 years had passed since then, the couple is doing well. The children know how their parents met but still did not understand the details, they just found it funny that their dad used to live on a bench.
Subsequently, Emmy wrote a book, How to fall in love with a man who lived in the bush.
After all she literally found her happiness under a bush, together they appeared on the British channel and had an interview where they talked about the book in the story of their love.
As Emmy herself says For all this year I’ve never regretted that I came to that date(meeting), we’ve never even fought and he is such a husband that I’ve dreamed of all my life.
All of us has our own touching love story, we’re connected to those who are our partners and this story is the best proof of this.
