Letter 1

Hi, my Keith!

How is your day? Mine is well. We have a very good not hot day. What weather you have there these days? Thank you for your last letter. As a matter of fact today all my friends have a good mood because today we found out that in a few days The Moscow Zoo would come to Karabinka for touring. This is great news because The Moscow Zoo is the biggest zoo in our country. So everybody discuss only this news. Everybody wants to visit the ZOO because the tour will last only for several days. I like animals very much and I have never seen Moscow Zoo. I have never seen alive tigers and bears. Have you ever seen a tiger or a bear? The biggest animal I saw in my life is a horse. I like horses very much and think that these are the most beautiful animals in the planet.
I always wait for weekends with impatience, because I get tired mentally and physically at the work. That's why weekends are the only possibility for me to rest and to get new forces. Weekends I spend differently. Sometimes I want simply to rest in my apartment. I like my apartment - little and cosy. On weekends I always clean the apartment properly. I like purity. And though I always try to keep my apartment clean, there is always something to do about the house on weekends. But when I want really to relax I listen to music or read books. I like to read books especially historical novels about ancient Russia or other countries. I don't like to read western or detectives.
My friends advised me some times ago to read novels by Robert Heinlein and I have tried - it was unexpected for me that I will get reading of these books with a pleasure. I like to spend time with my girl-friends. We like to walk and communicate, we go to movie and to the park. I like to spend time in nature in the open air very much. In Russia camping is very popular. I adore to go to the forest and to live in a tent though now I have seldom such an opportunity. I like to look at night fire. I like to look at the stars very much. In August the sky is strewed with stars. It is incredible beautiful. There is no more wonderful when in the air the fragrances of forest, river and smoke mix together. I am romantic undoubtedly as you can make sure already! Do you think about me? I think about you very much during a day! Especially in morning when I wake up my first thoughts are about you Keith! Even when I go to sleep I remember about you and think that how it would be wonderful if we will be together at this time! How often do you think about me Keith? I would like to know it!
Here is picture of me and my girlfriend Natasha on the my bed. This picture was taken last spring.

With much love, kiss you Maria.

Hi, my love Keith!

Today is quite warm here again and how is there?

Today I've surprised a lot that our hopes are coming true! Guess why? I think you would like to know it! Today after my work I've gone to the travel agency which work with embassies from Moscow and they've told me that my visa is ready now! I was very glad because it was so fast! I've asked them to scan it and I send it to you today because I think it's the great news not only for me but for you also! But like any travel agency this one not only prepares visas but it reserves tickets too. I've decided to use their service again because they have a great reputation and respect in our town. I asked them how I can reach Los Angeles (LAX) and how much it costs. They answered me that the ticket costs 1258 american dollars. I asked them to find cheaper tickets because this price is expensive for me. They answered that they had a cheaper ticket and the flight will be on 29 August. It costs 862 american dollars. I asked them to reserve a ticket. But they refused because they have a lot of clients at this time and they can't reserve my ticket without an advance payment. I spoke with them for a long time and asked to reserve the ticket for me without advance payment but they didn't agree. Then I wondered if it is possible to pay a part of the money now and the other part later. They didn't agree. I spoke with them for a long time and I managed to persuade them. They agreed! We decided that I would pay a part of the price today and the other part later. I paid 90 american dollars. But it was little for an initial payment. Then I went to the pawnshop and pawned my silver and gold jewels for 150 american dollars. It was my last money!
This is the flight information on which I reserved the ticket:
2:40 pm Depart Moscow (SVO) Arrive Los Angeles (LAX) 4:50 pm Mon 29-Aug
Duration: 13hr 10mn Aeroflot-Russian Airlines 321 Nonstop flight

Now I've all necessary documents including my visa and want to see you as soon as I can. That is why I need to pay for this ticket now Keith. I've asked about it in this travel agency which helped me to formalize my visa and it will be cost not much if I will get this ticket now. If I'll buy the ticket and visa both it will be cost more cheaper than I can buy it in the other place. So I had the money for a visa and I've paid for it already and I have it!
Everything is alright and I must pay now for this ticket. I have bought the tickets to Moscow on a plane. I've paid for a part of the flight ticket. But this money is not enough! I don't have more of money for it now. It is very hard for me to tell you Keith about it! But I've done everything I can! I've paid for a visa, for other documents, for reservation of ticket to you and for ticket to Moscow more than 240 dollars. I don't want to burden you. I thought I could get ticket here more cheaper and can come to you with my own funds but unfortunately I have failed. Now I have to pay the remaining part. It is only 622 dollars. I must pay this money before 28 August, otherwise I will lose my money and the flight ticket! If you love me Keith, if you trust me and if you want to see me soon, please send the money for this ticket as soon as possible! I will be sure in our meeting if I will have the ticket for a flight to you Keith! And I don't want that they'll sell the cheapest ticket to other people. I understand that it is a difficult decision for you, but we must trust each other! Any serious relations without trust is impossible, it will not have the future without trust! I don't want to be hypocritical! That's why I want to tell you following: I do not think that you would like to give your love and your heart to the woman who you don't trust, so as I am. It's a first trial for us! Many things depend on it, may be everything! We must trust each other! That's why I was the first of us who made the first step. Step to you Keith! I confused that money play a great role in a meeting of two people who love each other. So I need 622 dollars for the ticket, because I have some money and I've counted all. It's the best way to buy the ticket because it's cheaper than we will buy the ticket separately. I want to be with you Keith with all my heart and I do everything for it, you see Keith! So I need your help and we'll be together!!!! You must always remember that I love you and trust you! Maybe it's our future and I see that our future will be very wonderful! We'll be together very soon, I must buy the ticket and I will be yours and you will be mine!!!!!! I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH, PLEASE DON'T FORGET IT!!!!!!
Of course if you don't want you can not to help me. It will be bad but not fatal. I will lose my money and this ticket.
IT WILL BE TOO BAD... I say so because I am in despair and confusion. Now, when we are divided only with one step, I am afraid. I am afraid that you will not help, and all my diligence will be gone. I love you and I want to be with you Keith and the word of honor, your help is necessary for me. I have not calculated my forces. But together we are much stronger. It is much easier to go through difficulties and barriers together. I want to present you all my infinite love and fidelity. I did not want to ask you. I thought, that I can make it all by myself. The loneliness has made me strong. I have got used to live without a help, and to rely only on myself. I address to somebody for the help very seldom, but now I ask you to help me. I have made a step forward. I hope you will make a step towards to me too.
I hope it has not offended you. I love you and I trust you Keith. I know, that you will not throw me now when there is only one step. Tell me Keith, can you help me? If you have an opportunity please help me. I wonder if it is possible to do. I've asked my friends about helping me and they said that have not it at the present moment. I've asked the advice of my best girlfriend Olga and she has told me that maybe you Keith can help me because you love me!
I've asked her how you can help me because you are so far away from me? She has said that Keith can send the money through the company which makes this service. I've asked about it in the bank and I know now that reliable and fast company exists which make remittances all over the world and it's called Western union. I has remember that I saw advertising this company on TV. I've taken a directory book and found the address of it. It's not far from me. I've gone there and I've asked them about their service. They've said that a sender must go to the western union branch, give them information: THE NAME AND LAST NAME OF A RECEIVER, A COUNTRY WHERE HE MAKES A TRANSFER AND THEY GIVE HIM THE TEN DIGITS CONFIRMATION NUMBER TO A SENDER. THE RECEIVER MUST KNOW CONFIRMATION NUMBER FOR A RECEIVING MONEY.
They say that the branches of it must be everywhere all over the world. I have found out about where is the Western union here (by the way, they have a website, called www.westernunion.com). There is not any branch of western union here, but we have branch of western union in the city named KARABANOVO, this is about 30 kilometers from my town. It's not be a problem to move there. You can send me money using western union according following data:

Address:
ALEXCOMBANK
TORGOVAYA SQ., 5A
KARABANOVO , 601640
RUSSIA.
For : MARIA DZYAMKA.

I must tell them YOUR FULL NAME, FULL ADDRESS, EXACT AMOUNT AND CONFIRMATION NUMBER (Money Transfer Control Number) which will be given to you Keith! Please don't forget to send this information to me, ok?
I love you very much! I think about you Keith all the time! I think about a meaning of money, and I'm very sad if these papers can prevent people to meet each other. In most cases the money play a main role in the life but it's not right! I'm sure. And the quantity of money was, is and will not important to me. I have never aspired to the material enrichment and don't search specially for a rich man! I appreciate human qualities and relations and I love you Keith!!! I love you Keith with all my heart, I want to be with you now... I want to be with you forever! If it's mutually we will be very happy in our life! I think you love me too and we will meet very soon. You are my love Keith! My heart is yours! I will wait for good news from you, I hope everything will be all right and we will be together soon. Every day I think about our meeting, and I think it's very real now, we must use this chance of destiny. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!

I am waiting for your reply.
Kiss you Maria.

Hi my lovely Keith.

I have attached picture for you. I hope you will like this picture.
You have received my last letter. Why you nothing have answered? What you think of it?
I want to tell you I can't still believe and I am afraid to whammy but I think that my dream is coming true and we will be together. That's why I say: Hello, my long-awaited Keith! I love you and can't wait to see you in person! Do you feel the same my dear Keith? I would like to meet you as soon as I can. I want you to know I think of you a lot of time, all days and all nights. All my thoughts only about you and about our meeting which will be nice. I really hope and pray for it! I tell to the God thanks that I found you Keith! He exists. I know it because how can you explain that we could find each other? We live in the different sides of the Earth but he has helped us and I go to church every week. I pray and I tell "Thank you God for your help!" Do you believe that it's God helps us? I hope for it! I have already imagined for thousands times our meeting but even now I can't describe what our meeting will be.
I am sure that it will be one of the most wonderful days in our lifes. Now when I think that our meeting will come soon my heart begins to beat stronger in my chest and I feel a nice trembling in my body. I can't wait for the moment when I will sit into the plane which will take me through thousands kilometres to my dream - to you Keith! The days seems so long and boring now here in my town. But I think that nothing can spoil my mood because I know I will see my love - my dear Keith and we will be happy together! I would like to close my eyes and would open them after some seconds and would see you in front of me with a bouquet of white roses! I want to rush to your embrace to hear your voice, feel your smell and tell you in both languages what I will feel at this moment! I so really imagine all of it! I am full of feelings that all of it will happen soon. I want to tell you that I really feel for the first time that I am a beloved and desired! These thoughts make me so excited! I am ready to thaw in your embrace! I am thawing already now because I am thinking of you!
Bye my love Keith. I will wait for your letter.

Your love forever Maria.
