Something Useful, by Pelin Esmer
On an overnight train Leyla, while watching the view and the people with enchantment, notices nursing student Canan. At the terminal station, in Yavuz’s house, a big responsibility is waiting for Canan. Leyla builds up a story from the things Canan talks and doesn’t talk about, gets captured by it and decides to join her.
She doesn’t know yet if they will be an angel or
a murderer at the end of the story.
