persona_non_grata: (future)
My sisters say they won't say anything to my parents so long as I update regularly. "You never tell us anything about what's going on with you!" they say. Of course, I would do so if I could get a word in edgewise.

Well, this is what's going on: Ekrem's father is very ill. He needs help. Ekrem intends to go visit him, but he's worried that because his student visa is close to expiring, he won't be allowed to return to Turkey.

"My past is in Greece," he told me, last night. "My future is in Turkey."

I was a little shy, so I asked him if he meant his job at the film forum. I know he enjoys it, but it's not exactly a promising career opportunity. Besides, his schooling will end this spring. He'll graduate and be finished and his life will really start. He'll have to worry about a visa, or about changing citizenship.

"Adile," he said, "you are in Turkey."

You can't stop me. I know you want to. I know you'll probably tell our parents. But I'm post-dating this to a few hours after I've already left. You see, I'm already gone.

He needs me. Ekrem. He needs me to help him make the crossing back. If we have to, we'll say that we're married.

You all have been in love so many times. Yet you still don't understand when it happens to your boring sister. So sorry to disappoint, but someone has finally noticed me and I intend to stick to him. I don't care what you have to say. I'm coming back and I'll deal with the fallout either way.
