Green Ballpoint Pen

The green ballpoint pen represents Jelal's presence or trail. Galip was given a green ballpoint pen by Jelal as a child, when they were very close. Galip lost the pen, and his relationship with Jelal grew distanced as they aged. In their apartment, Galip and Rüya kept a green ballpoint pen next to the phone. When Rüya leaves him and goes to stay with Jelal, she writes her farewell note with the pen and then takes it with her. Jelal himself uses the green ballpoint pen to mark his articles and when doing research. Galip does the same when he starts emulating his cousin. At one point, Galip looks at the green marks left on a map. They denote a trail around the city, similar to the one that Galip followed while searching for Rüya and Jelal.
