Amilia’s wealthy parents are shocked when they learn that the prospective husband of their daughter came from a background that was appalling for them. Learning about the truth of Brandon’s background, the family did not want to do with anything about him.
They tease and mock him till he believes he is actually inferior to the rest of the bride’s family. What was surprising to everyone though was the fact that once the poor father came to the celebration, we brought with him a gift for the newlyweds. Everyone deserves to be respected. That is a very basic thing we are taught at a very young age.
Mistreating Nicolai’s Dad
Amilia’s family was dismayed that Bradon’s dad, Nicolai, would have still come up to “their” marriage after all the effort they tried and did in order to discourage him from attending.
It was really surprising for them because with the degree of mistreatment that they showed the old man, they thought it was enough to break any person. at that time though, not only were they surprised, but they also ended up being totally outplayed.
Breaking Everybody’s Expectation Of Him
Amilia’s relatives had tried to make certain that Nicolai will be the last one when the blessing and giving began. They intended his present to appear insignificant when matched to the present the couple will get which came from the arrogant family since they made sure that nothing could outshine what they prepared.
What happened next was way beyond the expectation of the people who attended especially of those who went on the extra mile just to make Nicolai appear insignificant.
A Present That Blows Everything Out Of The Water
When Amilia’s relatives learned what Nicolai, who they saw as a lowly Janitor, had given her and her husband, they realized they had been beaten. Nothing can even come close to it.
There’s no way to even say there’s a competition… Makes us wonder what Nicolai could have prepared for the event that even the rich family and relatives admitted that they could not compete. and all of this despite being considered and marked as the old and lowly individual.
The Relatives Made Clear Their Opposition
As a result, the majority of the members of this clan would look for marriage partners who were as affluent as they were. These actions were taken in order to guarantee that no one in the household was a freeloader.
With that in mind, many people would think that the argument and the reasoning of the family were good and it made sense but it also set them up to be seen as basically elitists. Because of this, it made the entire circumstance with the wedding plunge into chaos.
Brandon’s Household Was Far From Being “Rich”
Brandon’s immediate family, as many of you may assume today, was far from wealthy. His mom had been incapable to earn a living for a long time because of some physical and health reasons, and his dad, Nicolai, had worked as a maintenance man for the majority of his life in the workforce and only earned what was seen as the basic pay.
The situation clearly reflects the situation of many families in our society today.
Brandon And His Background Was Seen As A Joke
When placed side by side to the bride’s family background, this clearly was an utterly ridiculous circumstance that made Bradon absolutely incapable of marrying to the clan since it would only blemish the reputation of everyone in the clan.
They all had their idea as to what would be the conditions that the groom would have to accomplish in order to say that he is fit to be carrying their name and reputation. he clearly was a loving and hardworking man but what can he show for it?
The Costly Celebrations
The nuptials was going to be a very expensive affair for the household. They intend to impress Brandon’s struggling family with their affluence and to show the difference in the situation.
They thought that by doing so, they would demonstrate their assumed power in this situation and thus have more leverage in making the necessary decisions. They felt they’d be able to take control of the situation if they went about it the opposite way.
The Bullying Started
Amilia’s parents, regrettably, made it clear that they truly were pretending to make fun of the poor man “in private.” They noticed after a while that it was getting to his consciousness, and Nicolai fabricated up some excuse like feeling a bit under the weather, just to save himself from any more humiliation.
The couple had a difficult time seeing this since they were hoping for a nice ending to their encounter, but it wasn’t to be.
Just A Week Before The Celebration
While the bride’s family was preoccupied with organizing everything with the ceremony, Brandon’s family extended their intention to help, except for a lowly man who cannot be even seen in the venue.
They hadn’t heard from the man in a long time and were even unsure if he’d be able to make it to the ceremony. Nicolai, on the other hand, did not vanish, but he did make his only special arrangements for this important day…
The Trouble Was Already Brewing
Amilia’s family pledged to keep outside from the couple’s marriage henceforth after that chat. They do have something planned and hidden in their sleeves, and quitting from their plan was not in their minds at all.
They seemed to have a scheme to sabotage Nicolai’s life. They decided to put it in action in a covert manner so that Aimilia wouldn’t be aware of their objectives. the most disgusting part about all of this was that it was clearly for their sake that they are doing this and not for their daughter.
Everything Was Just Unfolding
Amilia’s folks started pushing for the present phase of the program to begin. They really cannot wait much longer because they had great preparations for this aspect of the ceremony. For this part, they had indeed devised a scheme that appeared to be innocent.
Moreover, it was yet an opportunity for them to show off their affluence and to break the spirit of the other household by showing off their capabilities especially on financial matters.
Last but not least, Amilia’s folks had agreed to give the present to the newlywed couple before the other family could give theirs because that is still part of the plan.
At first look, this appeared to be of no importance at all since gift-giving is not really about who goes first but this was no doubt that this conduct was carried out with malicious purpose. This conduct was not viewed with suspicion by either the couple or anyone else in the venue.
The Lowly Man Went Above And Beyond, Again
This idea was yet another method for the highbrow parents to try to embarrass the simple and humble Nicolai and showcase off the significant aspect of their clan and brag about the important aspect of their household When Nicolai offers what he had prepared, however, they will be utterly blown away by what this lowly man was hiding in his sleeves.
Because Nicolai’s present was capable of blowing out of the water everything that the other family has prepared.
It Was A Real Surprise
Fortunately, the gifts appeared to have sparked more talk and laughter among the families. Many of the gifts from the household of the groom were witty and amusing, and surprisingly many of the relatives of the other household enjoyed the creativity and amusement that it brought to the party.
Then it was the bride’s parents’ turn, and everyone who attended the event knew that this was not going to be a normal gift by any means.
The Gift That Did Not Look At The Price Tag
Amilia’s parents lavished extravagant gifts on the newlyweds like it was nobody’s business at all. For their romantic getaway, the highbrow parents gifted them a lavish Maldives getaway for a two-week vacation.
The couple was obviously overjoyed to receive this present because they both needed some time to unwind after all the preparations and the stress and discover a new place. the two highbrow individuals were far from done into shoving their “generosity” to the other side of the family.
The Lavish Gifts Just Kept On Coming
Amilia’s family didn’t stop with this one, though. The bride was clearly concerned because it was becoming more clear that they were just doing this not for the sake of the couple but for their own selfish gratification.
It was clear that the family was enjoying the thought that in every gift they place at the table, the smaller the other family see themselves. Amilia’s family even gave him a fancy motorcycle as sort of a thank you for letting them form the young guy for themselves.
Big Things Come In Small Packages
Everyone in the venue was still trying to process everything that has transpired so far because of the fancy gifts the bride’s family gave. So far, the plan of the highbrow couple was working since the crowd did not even notice the gift that the groom’s mother gave.
Then finally, it was the humble Nicolai’s turn. at first glance, it seemed modest and simply insignificant, yet it was bigger than anything Amilia’s folks could ever give.
Nobody Expected What Was Inside
The newlyweds ripped apart the wrapping of the gift to see what was contained in it. Amilia reached for a tiny plate with only a message on it.
Everybody was not paying attention as they were still blazing about what a generous parent the bride had, then to everybody’s, the new bride started to have tears well up in her eyes. Everybody in the venue, especially her folks, was puzzled as to what Amilia witnessed that caused her to respond in this manner.
