A man, Simon Louis, who donated his kidney to the love of his life, Mary Emmanuelle, has been thrown into shock after the latter turned down his marriage proposal.
According to report, Simon popped the question after nursing the sick Mary back to health only to be pummeled with rejection.
Mary was reported to have turned down the proposal stating that their future together seemed uncertain giving their health.
Mary and Simon however vowed to remain friends.
Speaking on the rejection, Simon, 49, said: “I offered her my heart but I had to settle for giving her my kidney. Whatever happens, I’ll never regret giving her the gift of life.”
Mary, 41, on the other hand said: “He is my very best friend and always will be. The love between us is real. He could have died doing what he did for me.”
The friends were reported to have first met in a London club in the mid-1990s where Mary, then 20 thought Simon, 28, was “a good-looking bad boy.”
The shared an odd smooch and flirted but things between them never progressed further.
