Emmy Abraham’s son was born into a traditional and wealthy family in Sweden with a comfortable life. She spent a good portion of her childhood there until she finished her studies and moved to London, where she attended college and graduated in theater. After graduation, she worked as an actress in Amsterdam, and by the age of 29, she was the general manager and art director of a renowned theater in Vienna, Austria.

Up until then, everything in her life seemed to be going as planned, except for one detail: to achieve all these accomplishments, Emmy had to dedicate herself to her work, which involved many business trips that took up much of her day. Emmy was lonely, and like many women, she never found her prince charming. She realized this when she noticed that she spent almost all the long, cold Austrian nights alone, watching series with her pet, while all her friends were already married with children.

Emmy thought her time would never come. Sure, men paid attention to the beautiful, successful blonde woman, but perhaps she just hadn’t found the right man for her yet. But in the year 2005, everything would change. Approaching her 30th birthday and with just a week left, Emmy was disheartened. To forget her sadness, she decided to go on vacation to Amsterdam. And so she did. In the capital of the Netherlands, after a busy day, she was sitting on a bench in a park, waiting for the friend she had planned to spend the rest of the night with. But still felt sad.

She watched the pedestrians and the loving couples passing by, and somewhere deep down, she felt envious of them – of the trust they shared and the peace of always having someone by their side to share good and bad times. She was sad because even though she had achieved a great professional life, she didn’t have anyone like that in her life. And in that moment, she decided to make her birthday wish; maybe it would come true, right? It was a magical moment she shared with herself, until it was ruined by the poor soul of a homeless man who approached the young woman.

Normally, when she saw these people, Emmy would dodge them. She was a bit wary of the homeless. He, who appeared to be the same age as Emmy, was handsome, although his face was almost covered by a large beard. Furthermore, he was dirty and smelled bad. His smell was noticeable from far. Upon realizing the approach of the homeless man, she was paralyzed, unable to move. Coming closer, he asked for the time, even though there was a huge clock in front of the wooden bench she was sitting on.

The most striking thing was his confidence because there was clearly a big social difference between them, and the man wasn’t at all ashamed and continued the conversation normally. It was something unbelievable that even she couldn’t explain, as she never spoke to strangers. On the contrary, she always avoided them. But that day, she couldn’t explain why she responded to such a man. Since there was enough time while waiting for her friend, she didn’t push the strange homeless man away, who called himself Vic, but decided to cautiously converse with him, calculating each word.

They started talking, and the girl felt it was very easy for her to talk to him. He understood her perfectly, and she couldn’t stop looking into his beautiful brown eyes. It was strange, but Emmy felt very comfortable with the homeless man also looking directly at her.

The conversation didn’t last more than 10 minutes when Emmy’s friend approached and interrupted the dialogue. Before leaving, the homeless man jokingly arranged a meeting at the same place 5 days later. His confidence was surprising and uplifting. Of course, the woman didn’t plan to come on the appointed day, and most likely, the homeless man would forget about it too. But the next week, she couldn’t stop thinking about Vic.

Walking slowly, she decided to pass by that same wooden bench just to see from afar whether the homeless man would show up or not for the meeting. He was about 20 minutes late, arriving on a small, almost childish bicycle, and he brought a suitcase, which later she found out contained his sleeping bag and some cans of beer.

Emmy recalls with a smile how the beggar tidied up and even washed himself a bit, but his hands and nails were terribly dirty. Their meeting was great; they talked a lot about life and got to know each other better. That same night, Vic said he came from the United States and had no relatives. Whenever he earned a little bit of arms, he wasted it on alcohol and admitted that it was a bad habit, but he couldn’t do anything about it.

Emmy knew he was just a homeless alcoholic, but when she saw him, something changed inside her. From that day on, he hadn’t drunk a single drop of alcohol. Since then, Vic began to tell his story and how he ended up there. He had traveled to Europe for sightseeing, but the money ran out quickly, and he had no more way to return or family to help.

So he started begging for money, sank into alcoholism, and ended up on the streets. Moreover, he lived in that park and slept under a bush for over a year. They talked until nightfall. Vic had an incredible sense of humor, and the girl felt very comfortable with him. At the end of the night, she said she would return to Vienna the next day for work. The woman didn’t know if they would meet again and she decided to leave him her phone number, even though she knew he would hardly be able to call.

Upon arriving in the country, Emmy couldn’t stop thinking about him like some kind of holiday romance she had never experienced before. On her 30th birthday, her phone rang. Emmy reluctantly picked up the phone, expecting to hear any kind of congratulations, but instead, she heard Vic’s familiar voice. Her heart began to beat faster. He just said hi to her and remembered her birthday, so he decided to congratulate her. Despite the instant happiness it brought her, she would have to accept the fact that she would probably never see the man again in her life. After all, he was in Amsterdam, and she was in Vienna, a distance of over 620 miles.

During the call, the woman expected to hear simple words of congratulations. However, to her surprise, the man said he was in Vienna and wanted to visit her. She was perplexed and asked how he had come. Vic replied that he had saved a bit of the arms he received, as well as

doing some odd jobs, and didn’t spend it on alcohol. Instead, he took a train and came to see her. He had planned to come a few days earlier but was detained by the police for stealing a chicken from a warehouse to eat.

Emmy remembered that morning for the rest of her life because since that day, Vic and she have been inseparable. The man settled into the woman’s house and immediately started looking for a job. From the moment of their first meeting, Vic hadn’t drunk a single drop of alcohol, curing himself of his alcoholism, and within a month, he changed so much that no one could see a homeless man in him anymore. That handsome man couldn’t possibly be the same homeless man from the park who lived under a bush.

After overcoming many bureaucratic delays, Emmy and Vic got married in 2 years. After 6 years together, the couple had twin children, Desta and Till, and the man accepted it as a challenge. Now he had to work even harder because he felt much more responsibility as a husband and father. At first, he started working as an electrician until he had his own repair shop.

Fifteen years have passed since then, and the couple is doing wonderfully well. The children know how their parents met, but they still don’t fully understand the details. Some friends didn’t take it very well and thought Emmy had lost her mind. As for Emmy’s parents, they took a while to accept it, but as soon as they met Vic, they accepted the situation and recognized the good man he was.

After a while, Emmy wrote the book “How to Fall in Love with a Man Who Lives Under a Bush.” After all, she literally found her happiness under a bush on a small park bench. Together, they appeared on British TV and gave an interview where they talked about the book and the story of their love. As Emmy herself says, “Throughout all these years, I never regretted going to that meeting we never even imagined, and he’s a husband I dreamed of all my life. Each of us has our own love story. We are connected to those who are our partners, and this story is the best proof of that.”
