6 Short Bedtime Stories For Her
1. Short Love Story
When a young student of a Catholic Church asked her teacher about the reasons why she decided to become a religious sister, her teacher told her a heartwarming love story. Many years ago, when she was at a similar age, the teacher (let’s call her Ms. Patterson) fell in love with a young man stemming from a wealthy family. The two began seeing each other and quickly developed a deep connection with each other. Unfortunately, the young man’s family was not at all in agreement with the relationship. They even threatened to enroll their son at a university overseas and far away. As Ms. Patterson came from a poor background, she couldn’t possibly have afforded to go with him at that time. This meant that if they wanted to continue the relationship, they would be separated from each other if they wanted or not.
But they both had fallen so in love with each other that ending the relationship – no matter in what way – was not an option. For this reason, they decided to run away. In great secrecy, they planned their escape and set these plans into action when the young man’s family finally found out about it. But instead of quickly returning back home after running away, the two never went back. They joined the church, took holy orders, and began traveling the world for various humanitarian missions. The two spent 40 years traveling and even got married, shortly before the man’s life came to an end.

2. Love note after twelve years D.H
Life had changed for me. I never realized it. Moonlight walk changed into late night strategy workshops. Candlelight dinner turned into business meetings. Sweet and short phone calls from her transformed into long hour teleconferences. Gifts were no more priority now — there should be some tangible return whatever we invest, after all. Spending even 5 dollars on the bouquet for the Valentine’s Day seemed meaningless — you would lose at least half an hour searching for a parking space in the downtown.
Overall there was no respite from the hectic office and the future planning. Whenever she, in a very mild attempt, tried to express her feelings, I had pre-defined answer, “these all are for us only, darling” and she used to be quiet for another month or so.
Recently I had to go to Holland on a business trip for a week. I was working on an important assignment. I didn’t have even five minutes to talk to my parents who traveled more than fifteen hundred miles just to meet us. I called her to inform that I had to leave that evening. It was not new to her. It happened many times, and every time, in evening, I found her standing at the door, smiling, with my suitcase packed with all the necessary stuffs.
I checked in to Crown Inn in Eindhoven. It was 3 PM. I wanted to rehearse my presentation before I meet the senior management. I was sure that she would have kept the file. In past, she never missed what I needed, never ever. But I could not control my anger. I opened my leather cased Samsonite and file was not there!!! I took out or rather threw cloths one by one on the cozy floor of Crown Inn.
“Here it is” phewwww… what a relief.” I sighed. I knew she never missed even my minute taste and never ending petty demands. And for this important file, I had specifically reminded her.
I opened the file. There was a pink envelop, something similar to what we used to exchange, long time ago, before our marriage. Those days, loves were not made on the Internet. It had been more than twelve years.
I opened the envelope. It had our family photo, with her and our two little ones. We all were smiling. There was a pink greeting card with a red heart printed on it. Inside the card, it read, “Miss you my dear Teddy Bear.”
When I was returning, at the Schiphol airport, after many years I purchased something for her… just for her… a pair of diamond earrings. I was missing her badly, as never before.
3. The bicycle ride
It was the year 1975, when Charlotte von Sledvin, a 19- year-old student of a Swedish royal family, traveled to India to get a portrait made by a gifted artist.
The artist was born into a poor Indian family of the lowest caste, also known as the “untouchables.” Despite the incredibly difficult circumstances, the artist, named Pradyumna Kumar Mahanandia, had gained an outstanding reputation for being a gifted painter.
His reputation led Charlotte to travel all the way to India to get her portrait done.
By the time the portrait was finished, the two had fallen in love.
Pradyumna was fascinated with Charlotte’s beauty. Never before had he seen a more beautiful woman from the Western world.
He gave his best to capture all her beauty in the portrait, yet never fully succeeded.
Nonetheless, the portrait was magnificent and Charlotte fell for his simplicity and beautiful character.
Because of him, she spontaneously decided to stay longer in India. A couple of days became weeks, and then even months.
The two had fallen so deeply in love that they decided to get married according to traditional Indian rituals.
Unfortunately, the time came when Charlotte had to leave again in order to complete her studies in London.
Thousands of miles separated the two, but their feelings for each other never changed.
They stayed in contact through letters, which they exchanged almost weekly.
Naturally, the newlyweds struggled terribly with the great distance between them.
man writing on paper
Charlotte offered to buy her husband air tickets, which he refused.
He had not only decided to complete his studies first, but he had also set his mind on reuniting with the love of his life on his own terms.
He even made her the promise that he would do anything he could to see her again.
After Pradyumna had finished his studies, he took all his possessions and sold them.
Unfortunately, the money he earned didn’t even come close to a flight ticket.
All he could afford was a cheap and used bicycle. Many would have been greatly disappointed; some would have even given up. But not Pradyumna.
Instead of allowing the difficult circumstances to stop him from seeing his beloved wife again, he decided to use what he had in order to see her again.
Nothing could stop him from reuniting with her, even if that meant an exhausting bicycle ride halfway across the world.
His decision was the beginning of a bicycle journey from India to the Western world.
Pradyumna took all his paintings and brushes along with him in order to financially support his endeavor.
His voyage led him through eight countries and took more than four months.
But eventually, he arrived at Charlotte’s hometown in Sweden and finally saw her again. From then on, the two never left each other’s side for too long.
4. Emma’s Secret
Emma had kept her secret for so long, letting it grow in her heart. But the secret was so big, she knew she couldn’t keep it inside much longer. She wanted to show people how beautiful it was, like Heaven on Earth, but she wasn’t sure how.
At first she noticed the secret trying to get out when she began smiling at everyone, and they smiled back. Oh, that felt good. So she did it some more. Then she saw her secret working its way out when she talked to people in the grocery store, or on the school playground, or in the neighborhood. She’d say simple things to them like, “Nice weather,” or “I like your baby,” or “Where’d you get those cool shoes?” And they would answer with simple “Yes it is,” or “Thank you,” or “At Penney’s. They’re real comfortable too.” She found that being friendly to others made them friendly to her.
Next she tried telling some of her best jokes to someone she thought might need a good laugh. Then she would get to laugh along with them. And she made and sent cards to people she thought might enjoy some mail. These were things she’d appreciate from others herself.
Then she’d use her imagination to pretend to be a bird, flitting on her tiptoes down the sidewalk, singing happy songs. She liked the way the breeze brushed against her body. Next she tried being a puppy and explored the walking trail in the city park, looking under bushes and growling at squirrels.
She would write silly stories in her notebook and paint watercolor pictures on a tablet to make herself smile. Then she would neatly tear them out and give them to her friends.
Her secret was getting out. She was sharing her happiness with others. At first she was a little afraid she might run out of good feelings for herself, but what she soon discovered was it was quickly being refilled as others shared their happiness with her.

5. Knight and Dae
By: Amber Dawn
Dae was the sun and Knight was a curious man.
Knight noticed Dae shining as brilliantly as diamonds on fire in the sky. He was in awe of her warm glow and adored her from Earth. She was so bright that it hurt his eyes to look upon her directly. Dae loved Knight as well, she noticed the effort he made to admire her and wished for him to be close to her. He could never look at her nor reach for her without being in great pain! She was so bright! It made Dae sorrowful to know her glow was painful to her Knight. Yet, she was the sun, she provided Earth with warmth and light. It was in her nature to shine and there was no other way for her to be less sun. Their love was tragic yet true. They both wished for the same thing, to hold each other and love together for eternity but they could not as it caused them both great discomfort.
Knight was very clever. He decided to craft armour made of his devotion to Dae to shield himself from her mighty fire. He thought, “That I may safely reach out to Dae without being burned to ash nor blinded by her wonderful touch. ” Surely, this material would withstand her powerful being and they could be together finally. Dae watched Knight toil diligently over the armour.
At long last, he came to Dae after his beautiful, gleaming armor was crafted. She eagerly reached out to him but she melted his armor in just a moment! “Oh no!”, she exclaimed. She hadn’t meant to do this! Knight was taken aback and disappointed that his armour was so easily destroyed, but he still adored her. However, Dae was also upset that her touch had caused him so much grief. Their love was tragic yet true. They both wished for the same thing, to hold and love each other for all time. But, they could not be together as it caused them both discomfort.
No matter to Knight, he used his enormous heart to fashion himself a cloak made of his love for Dae. It was the strongest material ever made in all of time! Surely, this time, the cloak would withstand her mighty touch and they could finally be together.
Knight then covered himself with the cloak and went to Dae once more. He was a man in love, determined to hold Dae close to him. When she saw him in the cloak she was overcome with joy and shone brighter than ever. This made Knight nervous, the cloak was very delicate. He was unsure if it would be destroyed by her intense rays. He reached out to her anyway. Then, something magical happened! They were able to finally hold each other! Knight gave her happiness and she wished to return that joy to him. The cloak allowed them to be close! She asked him if he would like to become a Moon. He joyfully accepted!
For some time, they stayed close to each other, though his light was pale in comparison to her wondrous glow. When he became the moon, the beings of Earth were in awe of him. Knight was very kind and he loved Dae very much, so would never ask her to shine less than him. He asked her if she would like to try on his cloak instead. Dae was delighted that he would offer his lovely cloak to be wrapped around her celestial body, she agreed. When Dae put on the cloak, something amazing happened! The space around her was immediately draped with darkness. Neither of them expected that! But, the beings of Earth fell in love with Knight! And they began to sing and praise him as they had praised Dae. When Dae saw this, she loved Knight even more, if it were possible! They remained this way for some time.
However, the Earth was getting sick without Daes warmth and light. She made Knight aware of this and he became sad, because he knew his pale light was not enough in comparison to the gift her brilliance gave the Earth. Knight was very intelligent. He knew that without the Earth, he would recieve no praise from the beings who lived there. He had compassion for them as he was once a mortal human himself.
So Knight and Dae made a promise together. Dae would wear Knight’s cloak for a short time so that they both could shine in their own way for those who loved them most. Dae and Knight love each other so much, they take turns wearing Knight’s cloak made of his pure love for her. Dae shines always and Knight is always close to her proving his devotion and love. Just as they had wanted all along. No more did they suffer. Their love is true but no longer tragic.
