Short Story Summary
When a finance manager messes up his company’s bursary program, the main character Eda Yildiz’s hopes are crushed.
A cost-cutting order from “above” causes the architecture firm that gave her scholarship to lose control of it and tear it away from her.
Eda is disenchanted, disempowered, and eager to get back to her studies and justice for what happened to her.
She meets Serkan Bolat, the proprietor of the business that revoked her scholarship, by happenstance, and thus begins her road toward obtaining both.
Eda accepts Serkan’s offer to make up for what his firm did to her by offering to pay for her education in exchange for her pretending to be his fiancée for two months. Serkan wasn’t aware of what his company had done to Eda.
His difficult ex-girlfriend Selim, who is now engaged to someone else, is someone he wants to get back together with, so he devises this scheme to do so. This deception, it goes without saying, causes tension between him and Eda.
