Short Bedtime Stories For Girlfriend

1. Love in difficult times

Gerald watched Elaine across the table as she carefully picked up her muffin and examined it. He looked at the clothes she was wearing and realized that her sweater was inside out. He usually made sure things like these didn’t happen, but they seemed to happen more often lately.

Their waitress, Maria, walked towards them holding a tray of milky, sweet tea (just the way Elaine liked it), a plate of delicious-looking butter cookies, and a wide smile.

“How are you doing today?” she asked brightly. Elaine flinched at the tone. Gerald looked warningly at Maria. When one had dementia, there was no saying how the day would go.

Maria took the hint, quietly placed the tray on the table, and walked away. Gerald offered Elaine the cup of tea, which she took with her hands trembling.

“When are we going to get married?” she asked.

Gerald sighed. They had been married for the last forty years.

“Soon, my love,” he said, placing his hand over hers. Elaine looked at his hand and then up at him and smiled.

“I love you, you know. You must talk to my father soon,” she said happily.

“I love you too, my dear. I love you, too,” Gerald said.

After they had finished their tea and biscuits, they walked away slowly, holding hands.

Joseph didn’t believe in love at first sight.” He thought you had to know a person to fall in love with them. How could you fall in love with someone you had just met?

But that was before he met Anna. It was raining cats and dogs that day, and Joseph had been drenched to the skin on the short walk from the taxi to the entrance of his office block. Anna was in a similar condition. As she ran to get out of the rain, they collided in the doorway. Her bag fell to the floor, and its contents spilled out. Joseph immediately apologized and bent down to help her pick up her things.

When he handed her the file and make-up bag, he looked up at her and felt his world shift. Her hair was the color of spun gold, and her eyes were blue. He had never seen a lady more beautiful than her. Joseph didn’t know her name yet, but he knew she was the perfect woman for him.

And thus, a beautiful journey of love, friendship, and affection started on a rainy day.

He smiled and said, “All my colleagues were discussing how tired they were of their marriage. It made me feel so lucky to have your Mommy in my life. She is the most understanding and charming woman in the entire world!”

His wife beamed with joy, and they all came together in a family hug. It was a perfect moment.

4. Blind sight

There was a girl who loved a boy. She loved the way he took care of her, and she loved the way he talked to her. The only hurdle, she thought, was that she was blind.

She wished she could see him as he could see her. She had built a perfect image of how he might look in her mind.

One day, her parents gave her the good news that they had found an eye donor for her, and she could now get an eye to see the world.

After the operation, she told the doctors that the boy must be the first person she sees when she opens her eyes. As promised, the doctors brought the boy to the room.

As soon as the doctors unwrapped the bandages, she saw the boy standing in front of her. The mental image of him that she had was wrong; he was even more perfect in real life.

It was then that she learned her eye had been donated by the boy just so that she could see.

7. Love forever

A young student once asked her teacher why she became a nun. The teacher shared the story of her life with her.

Many years ago, when she was much younger, she loved a boy. The boy loved her too. The only problem was that he was from a wealthy family, while she was from a poor one.

The boy talked to his parents, but they were against him marrying the girl. Instead, they started looking for eligible girls from among their acquaintances.

There was nothing else to it then, the young lovers thought. They decided to elope. They could not end their relationship for anything in the world.

A priest knew their story and was supportive of them. With his assistance, the young lovers planned to run away. The priest made arrangements with another priest to hide them till the danger had passed.

On the planned day, the lovers silently bid goodbye to their homes and families and traveled long and hard. Soon, they were out of danger. They married and began their lives together, filled with joy and happiness.

Both of them were gratified by the service the priests had done for them, and they began taking an active interest in the Church’s humanitarian missions.

After the man passed away, the woman took her vows and became a nun.

‘“High school romances aren’t forever!” he had heard enough people say. He never knew what to think about it, though. He had never been romantically involved with anyone.

Alexa walked into the class with their teacher one day. “Students, She is your new classmate, Alexa,” the teacher announced.

As luck would have it, he had an empty seat beside him, and that was where Alexa sat. However, after the first formal greetings and introductions, she didn’t seem inclined to speak to him at all.

He got immersed in his studies again and quietened his aching heart by looking at Alexa whenever she wasn’t looking.

The year came to an end. On the last day before the holidays, he mustered courage and walked up to Alexa. She was surprised to see him there. He cleared his throat and said, “Alexa, there has been something I have been meaning to tell you for some time.”

Alexa waited.

He said, “I like you. I didn’t know how to convey it to you as I was scared you would reject me. But now that we might never meet again, I want you to know this.”

Alexa’s eyes filled up with tears. She said, “I liked you from the first day I saw you! When I came to sit next to you, I was so overwhelmed that I had to purposely keep an aloof face because I thought you didn’t like me at all!”

They laughed and held hands for the first time.’

The grandchildren clapped as their grandmother, Alexa, told them the story of how their grandparents’ dreams became a reality.

9. Online love

They met on Facebook. He had been lonely. She had just had a breakup. He was a loner and an introvert. She was gregarious and an extrovert. He loved reading. She loved watching movies and meeting people. They were very different from each other, but as the saying goes, opposites attract.

As they overcame their inhibitions and shared more details about themselves online, they realized they had more in common than they realized. Both of them loved pasta. Both danced to jazz music. Both of them were learning French. He loved painting, and she loved drawing.

They slowly realized they were falling in love with each other. They couldn’t spend a day without messaging each other. They had to share their day’s happenings with each other.

The only hurdle between them was that they lived many miles apart.

After several months, they decided to meet each other. She was traveling to London with her parents, and their flight had a stopover. He agreed to meet her at the airport.

They met at the appointed time and place. Although they had shared pictures over Facebook, seeing each other face to face was different. He thought she looked prettier. She thought he looked more handsome.

He met her parents too. They seemed to be sensible people to him. All too soon, they heard the announcement for their boarding.
“I will message you as soon as we land,” she promised him.
“I will wait for it,” he said.

As she walked away, she turned back and saw him watching her. His eyes held a promise for a better future.

10. Ultimate love

A girl and a boy were the best of friends. But the boy considered the girl to be more than a friend. He had fallen in love with her, but he couldn’t find the right words to tell her.

One Sunday, he decided he would tell her about his feelings. He decided that even if she didn’t reciprocate his love, he would convince her to remain friends as they already were.

He picked her up from her home, and they went on a long drive. After some moments of silence, both of them talked at the same time.
“I wanted to…” he said.
“You know what…” she began.
They laughed, and he motioned for her to continue.

“Well, I was saying that I wanted to tell you something for the longest time,” she began again.

His heart started beating faster.
“What is it?” he asked, without looking at her.
“I am in love with this guy, but he doesn’t know about it,” she said. His heart nearly stopped beating. He looked at her for a second before concentrating on the road again.

When he was a bit calmer and was sure his voice wouldn’t shake when he talked, he asked, “Who is the lucky guy? Do I know him?”
“Of course, you do! Do you not know any of my acquaintances?” she asked, rolling her eyes at him. “I won’t tell you his name, though. I have written his name on this,” she said, handing him a piece of paper.

He took it and put it in his pocket when all he wanted was to tear it into a million pieces and throw it out the window. He was painfully aware of it. He felt as though it was burning his skin through his shirt.

The moment he reached home that evening, he pulled out the piece of paper and angrily unfolded it. He stopped short when he saw that the name was his.
Beneath his name, she had written, “I could never find anyone as perfect as you, and no one could understand me as well as you do. ”

He smiled, then laughed, and he was in a relationship with his best friend in the whole world.

11. Truth or dare

It was that time of the year. The prom was fast approaching, and Mike didn’t have anyone to go with him. All the girls seemed to be going with some handsome boy, while Mike, neither handsome nor a smooth talker, didn’t seem to attract anyone.

“Why don’t you ask Rita out? No one seems to have asked her,” Mike’s friend, Joe, said with a smirk. Mike knew why Joe was smirking. Rita was the most unpopular girl at school. She wore thick glasses and braces. Mike groaned, “Oh, no! Not Rita!”

But time was running out fast, and Mike knew he had to do something quickly, or he would be the only boy without a date on prom night. So, with an internal sigh and a shudder, he asked Rita out. Rita agreed.

When Mike went over to pick Rita up on prom night, he noticed that she was wearing a lovely dress. She had also done something with her hair. If he decided to overlook her large glasses, he might have said that she looked stunning.

When they reached the venue, they were immediately pulled onto the dance floor. As they danced, Mike realized that Rita was, in fact, a good dancer. She could also carry on a conversation without making anyone feel awkward. He realized with some surprise that she could make him laugh, and her laugh was easy too. He loved hearing her laugh.

That prom night culminated into something beautiful. Mike and Rita started dating each other, and soon enough, they were in a serious relationship.

Mike loved Rita, and he was planning to pop the question that evening. He shuddered to think what would have happened if he had not asked her out to prom that night.

A husband and wife had the worst fight. She was furious that she packed his things in a bag and asked him to get out of the house.

He slowly picked up the bag and left.

After a while, the wife calmed down and started worrying. “Where has he gone?”

She tried calling his friends, but nobody had a clue to his whereabouts.

Now, the wife was worried. “What if he had done something bad?” she thought.

She ran out of the house in the snow and walked up the sidewalk searching for a taxi. She didn’t know where to go or what to do but walking gave her a sense of purpose.

Suddenly, she saw a hunched figure sitting under the streetlamp at the corner of the street. On closer inspection, she realized that it was her husband.

She slowly brushed off the snow off his clothes and took him home. “I am sorry,” she sobbed. “I thought you would have gone to one of your friends’ homes. I didn’t realize…” she was at a loss of words.

“I couldn’t leave knowing that you would be alone here without me,” he said simply. “Whatever you think about me, I care for you deeply.”

She burst into tears as she hugged and kissed him repeatedly. She vowed to herself to never fight with him so much and never, ever, turn him out of their home. She loved him.

22. Weathering the Storm

A wave crashed across our bow and rolled straight toward me. I can handle this, I thought just before it swallowed me. Engulfed. I gripped the wheel as my feet were swept off the deck. The ship righted itself at that instant, shooting upward over the next swell. That was my demise.

The next thing I knew, I was tumbling like so much flotsam. I hit something long and thin. It knocked my wits back into me, and I flung my arms outward. I caught the bar. Another wave, and I found myself underwater.

My grip was slipping. I needed a breath. No. No. Sure death. Drowning… But a breath… Seven years, and the ocean was going to win. I let my grip slip as I took my last breath. The deck hit me. I rolled. Hands fell upon me. I was dragged. A dry place. A door slammed. Voices. “Untie ‘im. Let ‘im breathe.” I sucked in air, precious air. I touched the rope that meant my life—the rope someone had thrown around me just as I had given up. I rolled over and met the eyes of my Captain.

“Durn fool,” he said to me. “Shoulda lashed yerself to the wheel like I told yer. Took three of us to save yer butt.” Before I passed out, I had one final thought. I owed him my life.
