I FOUND THE BOX IN AN OLD WARDROBE, IT WAS HIDDEN UNDER THE OLD CLOTHES THAT UNCLE WAS NOT USING THEM. I BROUGHT IT TO MY UNCLE, HE SAID “IF YOU ARE CURIOUS ABOUT ALICE, HERE YOU CAN FIND HER ADRESS” WHILE HE WAS PASSING TO ME A LETTER WRITTEN BY A NICE HANDWRITING. WE STOP TALKING FOR SOME TIME, THEN HE ASKED ME TO READ THE LETTER. HE WAS LOOKING OUT OF THE WINDOW AT FIRST, ONE CAN SUPPOSE HE WAS NOT LISTENING…AFTER A FEW MINUTE HIS VOICE JOINED TO MINE, HE WAS REPEATING HER WORDS, HE GOT THE WORDS BY HEART ONE BY ONE…

“ MECID,
I SPEND THE WHOLE AFTERNOON AT “PATISSERIE MARQUISE” THINKING WHAT TO DO.

:heart::heart::heart:


When late afternoon comes to Patisserie Marquise by Hermetic-Wings


Wait Until Day Ends... by Hermetic-Wings



BECAUSE YOU EVEN DON’T COME TO FACE THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR FAITH, I DECIDED FOR BOTH OF US. BUT FIRST I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT SOME TRUTH….I LOVED YOU MECID, LOVED YOU AS YOU ARE; BUT THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH. YOU LOVED A GIRL FROM ISTANBUL FOR PLACING YOUR SELF IN THAT CITY. ISTANBUL WAS MY CITY BUT YOU DID NOT INCLUDE YOURSELF IN IT. YOU WANT TO CAPTURE IT BY CAPTURING ME. TRAGIC!…

:heart::heart::heart:


Lady poses for an impressionist by Hermetic-Wings




YES IT IS TRAGIC, BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO LIVE IN IT WITHOUT ME BUT, I DECIDED TO LEAVE IT. AFTER THE TERRIBLE THING THAT HAPPENED RECENTLY MOST OF MY FAMILY DECIDED TO MOVE TO GREECE... RESTAURANT OF DESPINA IS CLOSED; THE BOOKSTORE OF YORGO CAN NOT KEEP ON BECAUSE IT IS TOTALLY BURNT! MADAM ARTEMISIA WOULD NOT SERVE ON HER DRY CLEANING SHOP BECAUSE SHE HURT HER ARM WHILE SHE WAS TRYING TO SUPPORT THE DOOR FOR NOT TO LET THEM CAME IN…AND I SUPPOSE I CAN NOT KEEP ON WORKING AT THE SAME OFFICE. SO I HAVE TO GO…YOU CAN NOT IMAGINE HOW HARD TO BE A STRANGER IN YOUR BIRTH PLACE and SO HARD TO LEFT THE CITY THAT YOU WERE BORN, TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR TO IT. THE PLACES LIKE “PATISSERIE MARQUISE” WILL LOST IN THE MEMORY OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE LEAVING THE CITY.

:heart::heart::hreat:
Meet me on - Patisserie Marquize- by Hermetic-Wings



THE VOICES OF THE CHILDREN WOULD SPEAK A COMMON LANGUAGE AT THE STREET OF “TATAVLA” AND THE KITCHENS OF THE HOUSES WOULD CONTAINS ONLY KEBABS, NOT THE THE COOKS MADE BY TASTY OLIVE OIL…
IT’S HARD TO BE A STRANGER WHERE YOUR ANCESTORS LIVED FOR AGES. WE WERE WISHING TO SHARE THE CITY WITH YOUR PEOPLE VERY WILLINGLY…
ANYWAY!

:heart::heart::heart:

ALICE ASKS FOR MARRIAGE... by Hermetic-Wings


YOU OFFERED ME TO GET MARRIED AFTER I WOULD CHANGE MY RELIGION, NOW; I AM OFFERING YOU JUST CHANCE YOUR NAME TO “ARES”- TO FIGHT FOR OUR LOVE- AND FIND ME IN THESSALONIKI. MY ADREES WILL NOT CHANGE FOR A LONG TIME, SO IF YOU COME, YOU CAN FIND ME EASILY; IF YOU CAN NOT FIND ME, THINK THAT WE WILL MEET AT THE OTHER SIDE. I WILL WAIT FOR YOU TILL THAT DAY COME..

YOUR’S ENIS”

“ENIS WAS THE NAME THAT I OFFERED HER TO CHANGE HER OWN NAME” MY UNCLE ADDED WHILE HE WAS TURNING HIS FACE TO ME. WE FOUND OURSELVES BUSY WITH THE MEMORIES OF HER DURING A FEW MINUTES AFTER WE FINISHED SPEAKING.,
...
I FOUND SOME OLD PHOTOGRAPHS OF HER, SHE HAD RED HAIR WITH CRYSTAL CLEAR GREEN EYES.

:heart::heart::heart:



L'amour Existes Encore by Hermetic-Wings


UNCLE SAID “ THEY JOKE TO HER WHEN THEY SAW HER COLOURFUL EYES WITH RED HAIR LIKE - FIRE ALARM ON EMERALD FORREST-. 
...

:heart::heart::heart:,

Fire Alarm on Emerald Forrest by Hermetic-Wings


AND THOSE PHOTOGRAPHS WERE TAKEN AT THE FIRST DATE OF US. THE PHOTOGRAPHER IS SO FAMOUS NOW, DON’T KNOW IF IT COMES FROM HIS TALENT OR THE CHARM OF HER”…

UNCLE MuRMURED SOME MORE WORDS
AND HE LAID DOWN TO THE BED THAT HE WAS SITTING IN; “ AYHAN, WHEN YOU ARRIVE TO THESSALONIKI  JUST SEARCH FOR THE ADRESS; IF YOU FOUND HER LET ME KNOW, IF YOU CAN’T … DON’T SENT ANY NOTE, I WILL UNDERSTAND…”

:heart::heart::heart:


IT WAS THE LAST TIME I SAW MY UNCLE, HE COULD NOT GO OUT FROM THE HOSPTAL HE WAS CURING SO I COULD NOT SAY "ALICE WAS NOT LIVING AT THE ADRESS THAT HE GAVE ME"...

 

Dedicate to the lovers who lived on the both side of Eagaen Sea for many years alone because of the silly politic manners

Love is BIGGER than Religion.
Religion is a tool that humans construct to get thru the world.
But Love is the energy of your soul.
Interesting story.

Totally agree! Love is bigger then Religion...But the people are weak sometimes. They can not carry it even one step away...

I am deeply moved. The timing for me stabs me through my heart, but this is not my story. I see some of the comments below (not all 157!), but I find this more than a story of politics, religion and the tragedy of countries fighting over land, but more of a lesson in what each of is capable of doing or changing within us to keep our love alive. It gets even more difficult because a couple is two people, and they both must have the ability and the will to fight for their love to overcome what may seem insurmountable odds. I do not think that most people are willing to fight that hard for love. Of course, the photos are brilliant and the story has absorbed me completely, but I believe your uncle must have regretted his choice his entire life. But, who am I to say?No, I disagree! Heart

Well said my frined!...
As long as the lovers thing that they are two person they are not targetting the same score...According to me if you want to create a couple you must gather two diffrerent people together and make them "a" couple includes two symmetric version of human...Their ideaolgy and targets must be identical, their politics must be created by the same roots...Otherwise they can be together in away or another but they can not create a real couple. So they can leave each other easily and they can never fight for their excistancy...or their love...
Because ı am an Old School Thinker, I am teached to love in that way; So I prefer to fight my love and the one that I love...People of modern days are comsume love like fast food so, they eat a version of fast food today and if they can not find the same one on tomorrow, they are offered to have  another version of that fast food...
( am I so cruel about the modern people??? )
...
 Thank you so much for your kind compliments and detailed comments on my photograph. It was one of the most imprtant project of me...So happy that you joined my feelings.

Reading what you have written here- I am living & struggling with this very beast now, well for a decade and more.. but now it apparently must be resolved.  But love is not supposed to be beastial, it is supposed to be..of the heart, yet there is fighting to be true to oneself & still love despite differences. So complicated. I stay away from fast food, too (am I too cruel about the "modern" people)? I don't know..but I don't think so :D (Big Grin) No, I disagree! Heart
