FAIRY TALE PATH
Preferred to stay at home for a while in order to live in seclusion, Veysel Baba was feeling sad and lonely following Silent Foot’s farewell to this world. Regardless that his naughty friend Pancho Mancho visited him from time to time, it seemed like his loneliness failed to cease. Veysel Baba tried writing stories or doing paintings in order to change this devastated mood. Yet, he was unable to forget his beloved friend Silent Foot. It was really impossible to do so. The exhausted man was feeling that a part of his soul was still missing Silent Foot.
Following the good old days experienced in the mysterious Shoreditch Park with great memories, this emptiness became unbearable for Veysel Baba. If he didn’t insist on his friend Silent Foot on the questions regarding the Holy Ark, the joyful days spent with his beloved friend Silent Foot would have continued forever in the mysterious Shoreditch Park. Nevertheless, things have changed and a deep loneliness caught his soul.
During hopeless moments, the warmhearted fox appeared at the heart of mysterious Shoreditch Park has revived his soul by offering a brand new life. By this intervention, she also made Veysel Baba to remember many good things in life. There was sincerity, self-confidence, cooperation, sacrifice, understanding, unity, spiritual and emotional unity in the approach of talking fox.
The exhausted Veysel Baba has found love, fraternity and emotional unity when he met with the kind fox on that cold winter night the mysterious park. He failed to find such values in other people throughout his painful and tearful life. It seemed like certain mystical powers have caused this friendship to be established on solid grounds by focusing on mutual love and trust.
During the tearful moments of loneliness, Veysel Baba thought about recent incidents. He also thought about the creation and perfection of the universe. He realized the intervention of a magical power in creation and he also considered the parallel universes, billions of galaxies, possible life in those galaxies, mysterious creatures, giant stars, the big bang, the judgment day, another world, heaven and hell. He also thought whether the people shall be questioned in hell due to their material sins.
He thought of good things that are done and the warmhearted people. He considered helping to those people loving nature and animals, sharing beautiful moments, standing against conflicts and avoiding religious or racial discrimination. He also thought about the global robbery mechanism, the greedy capitalist system, the rich people intending to add more and more to their existing wealth, the never ending desires, the ones suffering against their efforts, the miserable condition of African nations, the water insufficiency in Africa, the stolen natural resources, the massive immigration, the world pushed to the edge of a disaster, the bright future stolen from us, the Holy Ark, the date indicated on the doomsday stone, Lord Parapanu, Princess Batavine, Silent Foot, her clever daughter Goze, St. John’s Hoxton Church, the mysterious Shoreditch Park, his fox friends residing in this park, the good old days, the stories told to cute baby foxes, the Tale Road and the beautiful dreams that he had.
As he was walking on the Tale Road, he used to dream for a heavenly world without evil, robbery, exploitation, injustice, illegal actions, lies, disloyalty, sins, tortures, massacres, wars, enemies, environmental damages and animal massacres. He also dreamed about a world where our bright future was not at stake. As he was walking on the Tale Road, he thought about the joyful voices of cute baby foxes playing beautiful games and flying kites in the sky.
But the contrary case occured. All of his dreams were left incomplete. The dark and painful days of losses have come back. All the fears, trembles and sudden faints have knocked his door again. In addition, the dark holes and endless wells were also waiting for his arrival together with sleepless and fearful nights. It seemed like he has returned to the deep loneliness, despair and dissappointment. Therefore, he locked himself at home in order to spend his remaining days in seclusion.
This exhausted man lost his hope on this world and the bright future. It seemed that the fabulous days experienced in this mysterious Shoreditch Park ave reached to a final and everything has begun and ended just like a fairy tale. Once upon a time, when the fleas were actually barbers, camels were brokers, wolves were shepherds, foxes were coops, the lions turned to herbivorous ones, the fishes started to live on plains, the birds were pilots, the ants were tailors, the bees were policemen, the frogs were singers, the turtles were doctors, the cats were nurses, the grasshoppers were running the groceries, the bears were butchers, the butterflies were painters, the nightingales were poets and I was rocking my mother’s cradle, there used to be a dream world beyong the Kaf Mountain somewhere far away. In this dream world, a Fairy Tale was actually happened between a man and his dear fox friends.
The name of this place where Taleteller Grandpa was telling beautiful tales was Shoreditch Park. In order to reach the dream world told by our Taleteller Grandpa, you need to cross the Tale Road located at the very center of this park. The ones named this road were in fact the dearest fox friends who used to live in this park but moved to a farm house in the course of time. The dream road the Taleteller Grandpa Veysel Baba took at nights was named as Tale Road by his dearest fox friends. Many joyful days and nights were experienced with full of dreams just like a hundred and one nights told by our Taleteller Grandpa. When the Taleteller Grandpa was crossing on this Tale road with the purpose to meet his fox friends and tell them the best stories, he repeated the name of a new story every time. Then, every step of Taleteller Grandpa has turned to a brand new tale.
They say the Tale Road croosed by Veysel Baba every night has beome orphan after Silent Foot’s sad farewell to this world while other fox friends have moved to the farm house located outside London and the Taleteller Grandpa has locked himself at home. Those epic days experienced in the mysterious Shoreditch Park were left behind. Everything was just like a fairy tale.

Great King Parapanu and beloved dear wife Princess Batavine made an intervention to help him as they witnessed his pains. By giving the codes of a mystical password, they made him to meed with his dearest fox friend again.
Finally, Veysel Baba was really happy. He was going out every night to walk on the famous Tale Road. As he reaches the end of this long and narrow path, he needs to say the mystical password in order to arrive to the Tale Land behind Kaf Mountain and meet with his dearest friend Silent Foot and other fox friends waiting there. Those beautiful days filled with many dreams and the fabulous nights have returned for our Veysel Baba with the help of Great King Parapanu and Princess Batavine.

The farewell moment followed by deep loneliness were over. Our warmhearted Veysel Baba would now dream more for this journey every night in order to return to the good old days.
As Veysel Baba preferred staying at home following the moment of farewell, he tried hard to recall the previous nights experienced in this mysterious Shoreditch Park.

After a while, the parents and their little princess left their home numbered eight at Kinder House in their pajamas and the slippers on their feet together with the fox masks, colorful blankets and small pillows. They went to the mysterious Shoreditch Park. As they crossed the Tale Road silently, they arrived to the final point. At that moment, the little girl said the code given by the Taleteller Grandpa for three times. Suddenly, a giant and magnificent door appeared. When the little princess touched the door fearlessly, it has been opened and a mysterious light covered her body and her family and directed them to a foggy cloud heading towards the Tale Land.
