Gokhan’s Search for Answers

Gokhan emerged from his room and began gathering information about Kubra, using a manila envelope to store his findings. Just then, he received a text message from her. It contained an intriguing message: “The Grateful: The parable of Noah’s test through his son.” Gokhan, curious, opened his computer and began researching the meaning behind those words.

Suddenly, the doorbell rang. Gokhan’s mother answered it and found Merve, his girlfriend, standing outside. She expressed her concern for Gokhan’s well-being following his retirement from military service.

Meanwhile, Gokhan continued to investigate the meaning behind the messages he had received. Another text arrived, this one stating: “Messengers are tested through their beloved, the word of God spread through suffering.” Gokhan was shaken by these words and asked God if he was going to be tested through his loved ones. The response he received on his phone only heightened his sense of worry; it was undoubtedly a test of his loyalty to God through his loved ones.

Concerns about Gokhan’s Wellbeing and Family Issues

Merve visited Gokhan to check on his health, but noticed that something was off with his mental state. She encouraged him to come out with her to change his mood, but during his nap, Merve expressed her concerns to his mother about Gokhan’s condition.
