A Love Story
Written Update: Episode 14
Korkut opens the tempo and sees a man bleeding and trembling in fear. The pervert begs Korkut to spare him and assures him of surrendering himself to the police. But Korkut is filled with rage as he punches him in the face. He constantly repeats that the man touched his sister with his filthy hand and stomps his foot on his hands. He kicks and punches him unconscious and then lift a heavy weighing scale but the two informers standing guard intervene and tell him that they will hand him over to the police.
As Ceylan combs Emine’s hair, she praises her silky hair which brings a wide smile on Emine’s face. Ceylan then asks her what happened before and Emine reluctantly confesses that she was scared. Ceylan then holds her hand and notices that they are dry and she asks Emine to apply some cream on it but Emine says there is no cream in the house as they never purchased one so Ceylan gives Emine her personal hand cream. Ceylan shows her how to apply the cream as Korkut secretly observes the two women from the window.
Still shaken by what happened with the pervert, Korkut finds it difficult to cool down so he silently sits outside his house when Umut notices him and joins him. Umut asks Korkut if Ceylan is his girlfriend and Korkut rolls his eyes and evades his question. Umut says that Ceylan is extremely nice and that Korkut can make her his girlfriend if he wants to. Korkut sarcastically thanks him for granting him permission to date Ceylan.
Ceylan happens to walk by when she hears Umut ask Korkut to make Ceylan his girlfriend. Umut pesters Korkut about his relationship with Ceylan and Korkut shuts him up by saying he is too young for such things and that he should concentrate on his studies. Umut persists that his friends told him that love is like a sweet apple candy. Korkut agrees and adds that the candy is often eaten by someone else and all you are left with is the candy stick. (Hahaha…. It sounds funny in hindi – “Candy koi aur khaa jaata hain aur reh jaati hain dandi” hehehehe)
Umut rattles on that love is a good thing and when you are in love you only have eyes for that one person. He adds that boys love pretty girls and give them a sweet kiss. (haha….kids!) Umut’s definition of love elicits laughter from Korkut who asks him what happens next and Umut innocently explains that the girl and boy then get married but before that they have to date each other. Umut says that Ceylan is very beautiful and suggests Korkut date her. Korkut playfully scolds him for trying to act mature and advising him on his choice of girlfriend before tickling him. (Aww……this was such a cute scene.)
Tolga is out with a woman when he is ambushed by the paparazzi. They badger him about his breakup with Eda and his relationship with the blonde he is roaming with but he is heavily drunk to think straight. He yells at the reporters to shut their cameras but they refuse to comply so he aggressively attacks a cameraman who pushes him and Tolga falls to the ground.
Ceylan starts to leave with her bag when she sees Korkut doze off while relaxing on a cot outside his house. She covers him with his jacket and turns to leave when he holds her from behind and requests her to stay the night. He admits being foolish and not understanding his sister’s condition. He reminds her of how frightened Emine is at present and requests her to stay back for Emine’s sake and she agrees.
Ceylan lies to her mother that she is staying the night at Eda’s house as Eda is unwell and needs her. Tahsin is infuriated at Ceylan but Asiye calms him down. Korkut makes a bed for Ceylan to sleep in and she notices that there is only one bed in the room. Korkut teases her for being impatient and reminds her that they have slept holding each other on a cold night in Germany and she retorts that back then they had no other option. He then reminds her that she had once allowed him to hold her hand when she agreed to date him but he never took advantage of it. She is amazed to hear him speak so innocently and counters that he had kissed her without her consent. She then pushes him out of the room and looks satisfied at being able to sleep comfortably on the bed. She sits on the bed and shuts the window when she notices Korkut peeking in at her.
After Ceylan has fallen asleep Korkut sneaks into her room and clicks pictures of her on his phone. He runs his hands over her hair as he continues to gaze at her. He then sits by the bed and runs his fingers over her palm, contemplating holding her hand. (Korkut you creep….how can you do this? Couldn’t you sleep out like you did in Germany?)
Next morning, Korkut awakens to see Ceylan smile back at him. She wishes him good morning and he wishes her back calling her a duffer. She then realises that she had asked him to sleep out and he says it was cold. She apologises saying she didn’t realise how cold it was last night and he smiles calling her a duffer. He tells her that he has to be somewhere and will be back soon and requests her to look after Emine in his absence.
Tolga’s last night scuffle is the morning’s headlines and Gonul fumes over the bad publicity. She wakes him up and chastises him for his bad behaviour. He looks unfazed by the news report as Gonul cries over him ruining his image. He says it’s no big deal having such a news as several celebrities have also got into trouble before and Gonul screams that he isn’t just another celebrity and that he is her son. Korkut is just outside the room when her overhears Tolga complain that it isn’t easy being the son of a famous mother. Tolga says that he wants to live a normal life and does not want to be famous. She yells at him for keeping the company of Eda who ruined him.
Gonul leaves Tolga’s room in a huff and sees Korkut walk in for work. She asks him if he was with Tolga last night and he says he wasn’t. She tells him to accompany him everywhere from now onward and ensure that Tolga doesn’t get into any such trouble again. Korkut assures her of taking care of Tolga.
Korkut gets in Tolga’s room and Tolga eagerly asks him if he acquired any information on Eda’s new boyfriend. He orders Korkut to follow Eda and keep a close eye on her and find out about her new boyfriend. Korkut assures him of doing as told. As Korkut leaves Tolga’s room he spots Tahsin by the poolside and quickly makes his way out but Tahsin notices him and calls after him but Korkut ignores him. Tahsin then follows Korkut but is unable to catch up with him as he vanishes into thin air.
Ceylan takes Emine to a salon where she has Emine do a pedicure which she thoroughly enjoys. Ceylan happens to see a magazine with Gonul and Tolga on the front cover and Emine gushes at Gonul saying that she loves to listen to hear her songs.
Tahsin approaches Gonul and asks her about Tolga’s driver and she tells him that he is Ceylan’s friend who she met in Germany. Tahsin is surprised that Ceylan never mentioned this to him and Gonul brushes off his inquisitiveness saying she has a terrible headache and he shouldn’t be asking her so many questions about a driver. But, Tahsin determinedly states that he will certainly find out more about the driver.
Korkut is spying on Eda who is approaching her house. He calls her and asks her to get home fast as there is a surprise awaiting her and then invites her for dinner at a restaurant. She calls him weird and says she has never met a man like him before. He flirtatiously remarks that she is really lucky. As Eda reaches her house, she feels excited on seeing a big black gift box kept outside her door.
Ceylan, Emine, and Umut take a stroll when Emine stops by a store window and tells Ceylan that the wedding dress on display will look really good on her. Ceylan is surprised that Emine is thinking of Ceylan’s wedding and Umut answers that Emine and he have decided to have Ceylan married to Korkut. Ceylan laughs at their idea and brushes off the topic before secretly smiling to herself.
Emine is setting the dinner table when Ceylan scolds her for working when she had asked her not to do any work. Emine says she has already done all the work and Ceylan asks her to allow her to set the table too. As Ceylan sets the table Korkut gazes at her admiringly. He asks Umut what all they did during the day and he excitedly tells him that they had cotton candy today. Korkut notices Emine’s hair and she shows off her hairstyle. She also shows him her freshly painted nails. In a hushed tone, Emine then tells him that Ceylan is a sweet girl and has prepared several dishes for dinner.
Korkut teases that today they all are in trouble and Ceylan asks the reason why and he states that all the dishes will be like the stuffed capsicum she prepared the other day. But Umut counters that Korkut had all the capsicum that day so he should have her food today too. Korkut tickles him as Umut laughs merrily.
Ceylan asks Korkut to help her with the work and he reluctantly rises saying that he was bred on the streets and doesn’t know how to do stuff around the house and Umut counters that Korkut is very rich and has a lot of money. Korkut gestures him to stay quiet and the little boy instantly goes mum. Ceylan looks at Korkut who laughs it off saying that Umut is a little boy. Ceylan smiles saying that Umut believes that his uncle is a rich man before heading off to the kitchen. Korkut goes up to Umut and tells him to never mention his house and car to anybody as it is their little secret.
Eda is waiting for Korkut at the restaurant when the restaurant manager informs her that Mr. Ali (i.e. Korkut) has asked to tell her that he would be late. The restaurant manager receives a call from Korkut and he informs him of Eda still waiting for him at the restaurant. Korkut then calls Tolga and tells him about Eda waiting at a restaurant and Tolga decides to visit that restaurant right away.
Ceylan calls Korkut inside the house as a surprise awaits him. She switches off the lights and asks Emine to step out as she holds a torch light over Emine. Holding something that looks like a mike, Emine starts singing one of Gonul’s songs as Korkut looks at her in disbelief and loses his cool on her choice of song.
Korkut screams at Emine and she runs to her room frightened, saying that she will never sing again. Ceylan switches the lights back on and chastises him for lacking a heart. He yells at her for making Emine sing that particular song and Ceylan justifies that Emine is a fan of Gonul and dreams of being a singer someday which is why she dressed her up as Gonul and made her to sing one of her songs. Korkut leaves the room in anger as Ceylan screams after him for running away from happiness.
Eda calls Korkut but he ignores her call. Tolga walks into the restaurant and sees Eda alone at a table. He sits across her and refuses to leave till he meets her new boyfriend. Annoyed, Eda starts to leave when he grabs her arm remarks that she has dressed up sexily so she can take her new boyfriend straight to her bed after dinner. Disgusted by his comment, Eda splashes a glass of alcohol on his face before leaving the restaurant.
Eda is surprised to find Ali waiting by the pool in her house and she asks him why he never came to the restaurant. He says he was there but left the moment he saw Tolga creating a scene. He asks her if she is still seeing Tolga and she quickly clarifies that she has broken up with him and now she is available only for Ali (i.e. Korkut) and a smirk crosses Korkut’s face.
