Bugun../ Today

Bugun Asli'nin dogumgunu. Ne tatli, ismini Halis koymustu. O dogdugunda Izmirdeydik, Halis de Sarikamis'da askerlik yapiyordu. Dogumunda orada olabilmek icin bir plan yapmis, beklettigi fitik ameliyatini olmustu. Fakat Asli bu iste, bir turlu gelmek bilmedi, Halis de kitasina donmek zorunda kaldi. Derken telgrafla bir kizi oldugunu bildirdik, telefon ne gezer, en seri iletisim telgrafla oluyordu. Cok sevindi, cok iyi bir baba oldu. Ben de bugun Asli'nin dogumgunu diyerek kulagina fisildadim.
Dun arkadasi Ziya Dogan ve Hulki geldi, Ziya'nin gur sesini duydu ( biz oyle dusunuyoruz) Birlikte cok cilginliklari olan arkadasi Ziya'yi duymamasi mumkun mu? Son gunlerde Halis'i cok iyi goruyorum. Daha cok tepki veriyor, bana inanin,


Today is Asli's birthday. How sweet... Halis had named her. We were in Izmir at the time and Halis was doing his military service in Sarikamis. He had planned his spinal disc operation so that he would be able to make it back for Asli's birth. But this is Asli; she was late and Halis had to go back to this battalion. We sent a telegram to let him know that he had a daughter. No telephones back then, we had to do all urgent communications via telegraphs. Halis was very happy and became a very good father. Today, I whispered to his ear that it's Asli's birthday.

Yesterday, his friend Hulki and Ziya visited. He heard Ziya's deep voice or we think so at least. Ziya and Halis had many wild days together, is it even possible for him to not have heard Ziya? I have been noticing Halis in a good state in the last few days. He has been more responsive. Believe me.
