Once upon a time,
There was a family who lived all the time in a manor. They were so rich. They
would buy whatever they wanted. They were five in number. Mother, who was
called Melda, was very beautiful woman. She was a lawyer who investigated
crimes. She would go every area of the country. She would try to find
murderers. Father, who was called İsmail, was a secret MIT agent. He would
research what people do and he would listen to criminal people. Their son, who
was called Yusuf, was an instructor in a university. Their young daughter, who
was called Sude, was a singer in a music club. Their old daughter, who was
called Merve, had no work. All the time she was at home and she would not go
anywhere. She would not be able to go out of home.
One day, they had a breakfast all together. Everybody was going to go to work.
Suddenly, Merve wanted to go outside, too. Everybody was amazed and
became glad. After Melda gathered around the breakfast table, they went
outside and got on their car. There was so much traffic in the way. Suddenly,
the way became empty and İsmail drove the car speedily. Although his wife
said: “Do not use the car so speedily” , he did not listen her and he continued
to drive. Children were getting scared, too but everything was getting well. The
way was not so crowded.
Out of blue, cars seemed in the way and they were coming towards İsmail’s
car. He did not see them and the inevitable occurred - a serious accident- . They
crashed each other. There became a big explosion. Everyone was scattered
around. Nobody could escape from the cars. They died. In the car of this family,
everybody was injured except for Merve. She had no injury. She was very
healthy. She did not do anything in order to save them. She lost suddenly and
her family stayed there. After two hours, while a car was passing from that
way, someone saw them and came near them. He called ambulance quickly
and waited for them until ambulance came. After half an hour, ambulance
came and carried them off to the hospital. It was not still being known where
Merve was. Her parents, brother and sister got conscious after twelve hours.
They were asking doctors where Merve was. When Melda heard Merve was
lost, she fainted. Police and soldiers were searching for Merve. Nobody could
find her. Actually nobody thought that she could be at home. Suddenly Yusuf
thought that she could be at home and he went home. Merve was at home. He
became so happy when he saw her. He ran to hug Merve but Merve was not
moving. She was neither laughing nor crying. Yusuf could not understand what
happened to her. While he was trying to talk to Merve, their parents and sisters
They scared when they saw Merve at that situation. Merve was not being able
to spill her guts. She was not being able to speak. Suddenly, she started to cry.
She slept while she was crying. The other people slept, as well.
At midnight, Merve woke up and she went to the kitchen. She took the lighter
and fired the carpet. After she fired, she immediately went to her room and
slept. While she was sleeping, Yusuf woke up and smelled an eccentric scent.
There was a mist scent. He woke up quickly and woke his parents and sisters
- The house was on fire. Merve was very calm. She was not worried at all.
They went out quickly and ran away from there. Firemen came here and they
tried to put out that fire. They worked so much and finally, they put out.
Everything was burnt. They had no beverage. They had no dress. Fortunately,
İsmail had money and they stayed in a hotel one day. After that, they rented a
house which had furniture. They bought beverage, something and they started
to live there. Merve was not at home again. She went to cemetery without
willing. She found herself while she was hugging a tomb. She could not
understand why she was doing this. She got up and ran towards home. She
went out her room running and slept quickly. When her family asked what
happened, she could not answer again. She did not talk to anybody. Her sister
and brother got scared of Merve. They did not want to be together with her.
After everybody slept, Merve went to the kitchen again. At that time, she
opened gases and she sat there. Scent of gas spread everywhere. Everybody
woke up and escaped outside. They got amazed again and again.
Unfortunately, they moved from this home, too. Finally, İsmail bought a house.
They were going to live there for good. At that home, everybody had a room
but the biggest room belonged to Merve. She put nothing inside. She only put
At midnight, she went to the cemetery again. After that she got lost since
then. Everybody went to search Merve but nobody could find her. While they
were searching for Merve, they saw a grave which had been opened. They
were scared so much. What is more, there was not a corpse in grave. Merve
was not here, either. They got scared much more. Nobody was searching for
Merve anymore. After twenty four hours, she came home by herself. She was
injured so much. Her face was in blood. Melda immediately took her inside
home. She carried Merve off to her own room. She slept there after she took
her drugs. Her mother waited next to her until the midnight. After that Melda
went her bedroom and she slept. After she went, Merve woke up again but this
time, she did not go to cemetery before. She started to cry very loudly.
Actually, she was not crying really. She was doing this so as to call her mother.
When Melda heard Merve’s voice, she went Merve’s room bu she could not
see her. Merve was at her back. Suddenly, she shot her with a bowl and her
mother fainted. Merve carried her to the cemetery. After that, she came home
back and she started to call her father. İsmail came next to his daughter quickly
but Merve was not here again. She shot her father with a gun. She cut her
father’s cheeks with a knife. After that, she carried him off to the cemetery. She
buried her father and mother in some grave which had been digged. While she
was laughing, she closed them with soil. After she did this, she dig a grave more
for herself. She entered the tomb and she cut her own fingers with knife but
she was not crying. She was laughing. After she cut her fingers, she shot herself
with a gun. She laughed even while she was dying. She died laughing with a
