Gökçe Ateş Aytuğ, is this time telling the same day she fictionalized in Aslı’s Book I Planned to Dream Today, from the view point of Aslı’s friend Aret. Beloved author is humorously narrating the feelings of a small boy who’s in trouble with his brother, about his friend Aslı who saved the cat on a tree.


When Aret takes his younger brother to the park, he sees a group of people trying to save the cat isolated on top of a tree. His friend Aslı, whom he actually likes a lot but he sometimes hurts unintentionally, is also there with just her stockings on her feet. He’s quite bothered when Aslı didn’t accept to put on the coat he brought from home. He makes a quite well plan to invite Aslı to his birthday party, but things get mixed up as always…
