Also, Firat likes Melisa and tries to get along with her. So, they become friends and frequently meet with each other.
But Can does not accept that. He thinks that Firat intrudes on the world of him and his mother. But Firat soon wins his heart and they become friends. Meanwhile, Melisa’s health condition worsens and she expresses her love towards Firat. Firat reciprocates.

For concealing this from Can, Firat resents Melisa. Then Melisa reveals another shocking revelation. That Firat actually is the original father of Can. Many years before, one night they met and had a one-night stand. At the time of leaving, Firat told her that he will return after buying toilet paper. But he never returned. From that one-night stand, Can is born.
This makes Firat feel guilty and eventually, he comes back to the life of Melisa and Can. Melisa’s condition worsens day by day and after one night spent together perhaps for the first time and comforting each other, she leaves in the morning without saying anything to them.
When she is gone, she takes all the stacked toilet papers they (Melisa and Can) have collected through the course of the time as a symbol of coming back. But Melisa knows, she will not be able to come back this time. So, she takes all the toilet paper, leaving only a diary behind.
Firat and Can became great friends after this. He shares the same bond with Firat as with Melisa. In the last scene, we see them both on a rock cliff enjoying the view of the sea. At that moment, Firat hands over the diary to Can, which eventually becomes Melisa’s drawing book. They see how she captures the important moments of her life and reminisces with the promise of having each other all the time.
