Come back again

 The hands of a watch are showing six o'clock in the morning and the sound which had created of it, had eliminated house silent about some seconds 
At this time Mary who had woke up some seconds ago, moved habitually with underclothes toward the room where located adjacent doorway 
And started to wash her hands and face without even glancing at the mirror in front of her and it is after washing that finished she glanced to the mirror in front of her 
Meantime, Mary smiled and laughed involuntary since her untied hairs has made her figure marvelously laughable, and then with taking the towel walked toward her room as drying her face  
As soon as Merry reached to the room, she moved toward her personal tools and started to arrange hardly her intermixed hair by taking the comb and meantime she was doing so, she walked toward the Paul room (Her 14 year's old son) 
She reduced her pace and approached slowly and calmly to the door when reached near the room to knock the door, but suddenly she saw that the door was open, by seeing the manner she interred slowly and without wonder into the room.
Because for a while she imagined that  Paul  has forgotten to close the door of his room, then she entered with all calmness into the room and  as she was  repeating the word "wake up " moved toward the mirror which located in front of bed,' 
Still  Mary reaching by the mirror stand in front of it  and immediately ,she started to arrange her hairs and meanwhile her hairs have turned her desired mode and she was looking herself in the mirror , she noticed an important thing in it, 
Paul's bed was empty ,she moved quickly ,came back when she knew this matter, and exited from the room as signs of  anger and worry was seeing on her face ,and without delay she reached the house top by the stair which was near the room reached ending there, 
And surprisingly she saw that Paul has slept again there .Mow she has been angry actually and this can be understood easily by her eyes but at the moment she preferred to prevent her anger
Then for a while she remained silent then she started speaking after a few seconds ,and she called Paul calmly .Waves sound distributed everywhere and waves one after the other were colliding with shore and this has created strange view near the shore  
In addition, it had caused that Mary's sound not to reach to her son's ears, then at this time necessarily she called Paul loudly and said that, Paul, sleeping is enough, such a way that Paul wake up immediately and opened his eyes half 
And as the horror prevail him, he   stared  to  his mother, but before he   stand up , Mary continued but with slower sound this time , and said ,didn't I say ;you haven't  obligation to sleep here
Paul paused while hearing his mother's word, and now he had been half –raised and watched innocently toward the sea, and answering to his mother with gentle sound said: because it located opposite the sea,
And then remained silent ,this condition continued until Paul's mother hadn't said anything ,certainly for a while until Mary said involuntary with clogged sound due to her fear : Paul I am afraid ,this letter caused Paul to have agitation very much  
Such that fear surrounded him for moments, so that Paul is sensing tremor now ,but it was for what question that Mary was asking himself but then Paul predominated himself .and turned to  his  mother and said : for what mother?
At this time, suddenly Mary's mind removed from what she was thinking, and as she was watching Paul, she said that because you would catch cold. 
When Paul heard this word, he sneered and then said that   mother, I am coming down and he stand up and glanced to the sea and as the smile, which had on his face, disappeared. He went toward imported door. 
He went down the stairs with his short step and sat in the side of table as his head was down and looked at the food that placed his opposite by his mother and without talking, he started to eat 
Then looked at Mary and he sneered then he told:  Mather, why you are looking at me? Food is for eating. Now Mary glanced to him and said hesitation: of course, and then she took a milk glass from shelf.
And as she pointed to it said: but by milk, Paul shacked his head either and drank all the milk, meanwhile Mary sat near the table and started to eat quietly, but she had eaten more than a mouthful yet , she stopped for a while,
In addition, as she had gazed to Paul told: Paul, have you disputed with June?
Paul did not say anything for a while by hearing this and then he thought. He was feeling stuffiness now.
He wished ,he could go to an open place where he could breathe easily or shout by heart or perhaps he could cry .At last Paul  predominated himself after a few pause,  and he raised his head quietly,
In addition, said: mother, I do not understand what your mean is. Mary surprised a little when she saw this stage and then she said that, it means, were you quarrel each other. This time, promptly Paul told: off course, I was not. Then he was calmed.
Mary dispensed from talking when she saw this condition also and started to eat breakfast. Paul moved toward exit door after the breakfast finished, but he stood by his mother's words who were saying where do you want to go? In addition, he told:  Mother, I want to go shore to walk there. 
Mary sneered when heard this word and told: but cone back early .Paul went out of the house by saying very well, mother.
Out was dull and cloudy and wind was blowing gently, and it created a romantic mode. Paul was moving with slow paces and he was speaking unintelligible words in his lips, which were not obvious.
Waves sound had surrounded everywhere and it was swallowing little by little all the Paul's words and drowning them. Paul squatted near the shore, saying June, and then leaned his head on the soft sand of the shore and fell to sleep involuntarily.
He was dreaming himself with June near the shore playing in water and joking together. Just near a tree and vicinity to the same place, they are keeping aloof from the shore without attention to it. Until, a deadly wave turned their childish enjoyment to a nightmare. 
June was in depths of the sea  and he struggling with his hands and feet now ,who had being  floated and laughed with his beautiful  smiling  on the water .Paul had transfixed in his place
He did not know what can he do until another wave tack him under the depths of the sea, Paul was floating astonished and the more wave was hitting his face, his fear would be more.    
He tried look at his around in that condition, perhaps he could see June but there was not any signs of him .At this time someone or something caught him tightly on his back, his fear had been more he did not know what happened.
He was feeling of closeness and he was confused , then involuntary he kicked strongly to it with all of his power and kept it away , when he turned back, he saw June who was going far away from him  ,  more far and far by every wave, at last he disappeared
At this time, when Paul had slept in the shore the tide of the sea contact with his face and awakened him. The weather was half-dark and the sea was calm. Paul watched the sea again, at that moment, he burst into tears, and he said cried: June, June excuse me
In addition, this was the only word that was been hearing in that cold weather at this time. Afterwards Paul came back home by slow paces and interred rapidly into the house when he reached there. Mary, as her mouth was open surprisingly by seeing him, said: what's the matter, did you became a child 
I thought that you were going to walk in the shore only, not to play whit mud .Paul lowered his head and did not say anything, just he went into the cloakroom and changed his clothes  and he sat at the table with underwear  
Mary did not say anything when she saw him; just she brought the food toward the table and started to eat herself either. Meanwhile there was not any talking between them until Mary broke the silence
In addition, she told: do you know Paul, actually I surprise for Juan's behavior yet who had gone without saying good-bye to me. Paul stared to unknown place, and said: yes mother, but it is true, he went without saying good bye, then Paul   did not say anything
Mary paused for a while when she was playing with her fork, then said: do you truly know that I am anxious a little, for this reason I want to call your aunt's  house to …this time Paul ,did not give his mother finishes her words,
He told: mother can I go tomorrow, because I have an important work in the city, please let me, and then I can call my aunt's house, Mary laughed involuntarily by hearing her son words and then said: It is better, 
Then both of them started to eat without saying a word, after eating, Paul moved slowly toward the flat roof and sat at his usual place, while Mary is watching him, looked at the sea.  
Some minutes later, Mary entered the flat roof after him, and then wanted to speak but she became silent by her son's word, Mother you see how the sea is silent but this silent sea can kill one likewise 
Mary who has wondered by Paul's words, with the same mode, she said: It is true but it is the nature of the sea. Paul repeated the same word more and told: Sea Nature, sea nature…
At last, that night Mary accepted Paul's request who was insisting continually, that Paul could sleep here on the condition that he never sleep there. Then Paul accepted.  
The next day Paul woke up earlier than Mary wake and prepared complete breakfast including fried eggs with orange juice. Mary observed him while she was looking him surprisingly said: so much the wonder.  

Paul smiled also, and told: That is nice of you mother. After eating breakfast went out of the house very earlier than he accustomed to pretend to call Juan's house today that he agreed 
It was sunny out and Paul was walking vainly and continuing his way while he was watching the telephone cabins. Paul came back the house when it was dark after some hours and as he was tired and weary went to the wash – basin and washed his face.  
When Mary saw him, she told: why did you come late? Oh, did you call your aunt's house? long  pause and delay … sorry, mother, I forgot .Mary became angry by hearing Paul's words and while she was saying you can't do correctly anything at all ,well I myself  will go  tomorrow ,she moved to the kitchen.
Paul glanced himself in the mirror and washed her face again, he moved to the kitchen later and he apologized from his mother and told: mother excuse me that I forgot. Mary paused a few minutes while watching him told: It is in order, come and eat your diner now.
Immediately, Paul said: thanks mother ,  am fed up, I am not hungry after then , mother, I promise you that I will be a good boy , and I am going to sleep in my room now, good night. Mary was looking at him astonishingly, and told: well  my dear, help yourself, then she moved her head, and she muttered, maturity period, under her breath.

#####

Paul waited ,while he was lying down  on his bed and playing possum until his mother's light turned off ,then it was time when he must get up .At this time ,He opened his large and pretty eyes and muttered under his breath: It is the time. 
And got up slowly while moving himself and placed cushion under the blanket after he had rubbed his hair by his small hands and he went by his short paces  out of the room where had been lighted by moonlight . 
He reached himself softly  into his mother's room and opened the door slowly and moved to her bed .Mary  was  sleeping comfortably  on her bed , Paul was glazing at her eyes ,and it was a few times that he was looking at ,she was just in front of him but  she can't speak.

The he moved to the windows, which was front of the bed and leaned his small hands on it looking at the sea, after pausing some seconds he turned again   and stared his mother, he muttered, good by mother, slowly and under his breath.
Now, he came back confidently and opened the windows half and throws himself out of it, and moved slowly and with short paces until he reached to the sea. He stopped when he reached there. He watched the sea a few time. 
He wanted to say something but he cannot, he felted a lump in his throat, he cannot speak, the only word that he could say was this: you the sea… He was moving his head continually; tear drops had formed on his eyes. 

However, he was resisting, he was starring the sea, and looking at it continuously, the sea was in front of him now, the sea, which was a sample of death and the hard-hearted killer that had destroyed his only real friend.
He had taken his decision, just at the time that he had seen the death of his dear aunt's son, he had there for revenge, and he was determined at this .The sound of the wind was surrounded everywhere,
Waves one after another were hitting the shore and they seem to invite for quarrel him. Now, Paul raised his head, wind was blown on his face and it was good for him. He was feeling calm now. He tried to say anything but he could not  
At this time, he moved slowly toward the sea. He brought himself nearer and nearer to the sea while he was taking off his clothes, his clothes distributed all over the shore. Now he was swimming in the sea.
His hands had gotten tired but he was continuing, he was thinking only for one thing in his mind and that was to break the sea. Waves lessened his speed by hitting on his head but he was continuing. It had passed half an hour of this event, and while he was drowning out to the dryness by dragging himself,  
He was repeating this sentence: I broke you, I killed you, I revenged you. He reached to the nearest dryness after half an hour where was like an island among the sea. Poor Paul thought that he revenged of sea by this action.
In his mind, going on this way means that the sea was defeated.
He was feeling peace and lying down as his body dad weltered with sand and he was looking at the sky where was shining like day by stars and beautiful moon light.  
He formed his hands a ring on back of his neck and he started to speak with his dear aunt son. Juan, do you know that my mother wants to call your house tomorrow? In addition, that time certainly she will understand that you have not reached the house yet,
I force to say the truth, but I could not tell, you drowned in the sea, and I was watching only, can I? certainly not…, for this reason Juan, I want to come near you to be with each other, then, neither I am the guilty nor you are, the guilty is the sea, implicitly, we will not be alone any more, you and me will live near each other for ever.
Paul moved toward the sea by saying these sentences, but he had not swum some meters that he felt weariness in muscles of his feet and hands. He had not last breath of life, there for, he sank into the water without resistance and he drowned
In addition, that blue large eyes closed when Paul drowned. That day everything seemed common. The moon was been seeing easily in the back of the clouds. Stars were diffusing light as always, and sky was half-dark so. It seemed, there had not been any accident, but one thing was certain, Paul was not near us anymore.  

#####

The blow of the cold wind caused Mary to wake up earlier than ever, meanwhile she stacked her hands to her body because of the cold intensity and immediately she reached herself near the windows that were half-open by moving herself, and shut it firmly. 
While glazing around, she moved to her son room. The weather was cold and the cold breeze surrounded everywhere of the room. Mary was closing to his room with slow and unbalanced paces; she was calling him quietly while she was doing so
She called him many times when she reached the room but she did not hear any answer, she moved near the bed wanted to wake him up then she stretched out her hands toward him, she froze in her place before she could do so.
It was pillow under the blanket, and there was not any news about Paul. Mary became angry by seeing this stage, and said while her face had been red by nervousness, said: Again, and then moved to house – top.
However, I wish she knew that Paul never could sleep on the house – top. She stopped when she reached there and looked at her around, she wanted to find Paul, but she cannot and he was not there.
Apparently, the sea was calm and silence, as it raises uproar every day, it was calm that day. Mary had not seen the sea like this up to now. Perhaps, because she feels anxiety, especially Paul was not there now. 
Seconds and seconds were passing and continuously she was looking at the sea, she had felt strange manner, she was afraid deeply of something but she did not know for what she was afraid and this mode became her uncomfortable.
After a long time she remembered that, she should go out for buying then she tried to wink her at foolishness and thoughtless, then immediately she reached herself into the cloakroom and changed her dress, she wanted to rub her hair but she dispensed.
Then she went out of the room, she had not gone more, she stopped and glanced to an unknown point and said the word 'Juan' involuntary. Now Mary had remembered that she should call Juan's house today and assured his coming.
Therefore, she started to run, her anxiety doubled. She thought that there must be a relation between Juan and Paul   absence, she did not know why she assured but she guessed that something had happened.
Her anxiety was distinguish from her face and sweat drops were casting from her face. She stopped when she reached to the city watching around her, her eyes were looking for a telephone cabin only, therefore she crashed with some persons to reaching there.  
However, she continued her way without attention to it, and then she paused when she reached. Her hairs were covered half of her face and she interred the cabin who was rubbing her face with her hand and took ear-trumpet with agitation and started to call, 
Then someone took the telephone at the other side and told: yes. Mary started to greet with her sister Maria by hearing her voice. She decided to ask Joan where was Paul while she was talking with anxiety.
 However, surprisingly she understood that Joan dab not come home yet. Telephone receiver falls from her hand and nailed up on her place, she said half loudly: but he should come three days ago whose eyes were looking at the busy street.  
The sound (Aloe … Aloe …) surrounded everywhere, but at that time Mary had been deaf, she could not hear anything, in Mary's mind dreadful, and worry had surrounded everywhere. Suddenly she remembered Paul's words a few seconds later who told: Mother, cans you see how silent the sea is but this silent sea can kill one. 
Meanwhile Mary's face turned to pale, her heart was biting quickly. Perhaps, she knew what was she afraid of .from her son's death, something that should not happen but it had happened. Mary wad assured now, but there was a gleam of hope yet, perhaps these were a dream only or something like a vision, I do not know. 
However, they were the words, which Mary was saying for herself at that time. Then she came back home with the same manner of disturbed, but, contrary to the last one hour, this time, she stood aside the shore when she reached there by slow paces and started walking like insane around it.
As if she had lost something, and wanted to find it between the soft sand of the shore, now her heart stopped suddenly, her feet felt a soft thing, she could not breathe any more even, the only act she could do was to bend and to tack it. 
Then ,she took it without looking at it, oh my God it was Paul's clothe, Mary paused by seeing  it, she was feeling vertigo, she was nausea, she didn't know what she can do. Only she knows who must go home. She moved toward the house – top frostily and astonishingly by slow paces, and when she reached there, she leaned to the door of the house.  
She had became restless and tears were dropping from her eyes, presumably she didn't want to believe that Paul was not beside her any more , then Mary cleansed her face by her hands and laid where Paul was sleeping there and  she glanced the sea  in front of her.
The sea was calm, more calm unlike it was, and she was looking at it, suddenly Mary remembered involuntarily the event that had happened in the first circumstances.
She was seeing herself in her front who was saying to Paul; Paul, did I say you should not sleep here? Then she answered herself instead of Paul and she said: because it located opposite the sea, and then she became silent and fastened her eyes , drops of the tears that had form a ring on Mary's eyes flowed by shutting her eyes, and she went into a deep sleep.
The end
Dedicated to my dear niece
