The principle called Azur and said that Peri had committed suicide owing to you. Azue was shocked to hear that Peri had tried to commit suicide. And the principle said to Azur till Peri will not be fully fine you should not attend classes. Because we will see if Peri had committed suicide to die. You will be resigned if not then you can attend your classes again.  Furthermore, when Peri was all right and she was discharged from the hospital. The committee of Oxford University called her. When she went there Shirin and Mona were already present there. After a while also Azur approached there.  Again she started thinking about Azur. She felt ashamed for her this trouble activity. She could not see Azur. She was totally broken into pieces. This time she hated herself. She could not stand there she ran away without saying anything. And she left Oxford University forever and went to Istanbul. To put it in another way, she did not say anything that’s why Azur was resigned. Certainly when Peri was at party of Istanbul in 2016 she was missing Oxford University. She finds out Shirin number and called her. Shirin was so amazed to talk Peri on phone. Shirin said to Peri that it was your civic duty to say sorry to Azur. Then Shirin gave Azur number to Peri to talk with him. Peri called Azur when Azur said Hello Peri was out of her soul as if she got her life. At first she did not say anything after a moment than she spoke to him after fourteen years. Azur was happy to talk with her. And peri happiness was as extreme that we can’t imagine. Peri felt sorry was confused. And peri talked to him as a professor means she told a story was the student. Peri was relaxed to talk with Azur. Here talking was continue that the mobile gale switch off due to low battery.
