Letter 2

Hello dear Scott!!! How are you? It is me again. I am glad to have the letter from you and your fine pictures.
I hope you are not bored with me. As for me I find our correspondence rather interesting.
I think you want to know more about me so I will go on describing myself. You know I live in Russia in the town Penza. I have been living in Russia for all my life and have never been in other countries.
The town where I live is rather small but it is very beautiful.
We have very wonderful nature here. There are a lot of beautiful lakes and rivers here.
Here there passes the main river of our city, its name same as well as the name of city, that is Penza.
I studied and graduated the university with the diploma of social worker. Now I work in this city in the boarding school for orphans and bring up children of orphans.
I have written about it. This job is not paid very well but I do not care. I like my job because I love children very much. I want to give everything for their future happiness.
But it is enough about my job. I have a cat. I will write you more about my interests.
I am rather active person and I like outdoor activities.
I like camping very much and I try to spend my free time with my friends on the nature. I also like sports.
I like sports too, especially sport games. During the wintertime I like skiing and skating.
We have a lot of snow here and I can ski very often.
If I do not have opportunity for active spending time I like to read literature. I like listening to music very much.
Most of all I like slow compositions and ballads. They help me to relax. But I can listen to different music.
Sometimes I just like to listen silence. As for my dislikes I even do not know what they are.
I do no like lie and dishonesty. I do not like to play with the feelings of other people and do not like when somebody plays with my feelings.
I have written that I am romantic person. I believe in destiny and in the love at first site.
Maybe it is unusual, but it is me, such as I am. I suppose you can ask why I am searching for someone in the Internet.
I exactly do not know why. My past relationships were not good. I met one man here. He was very nice and kind.
I failed in love with him. Everything was good but then he became to drink a lot and I was on the second place for him.
I suffered some time from his attitude but one day he hit me and I was not able to stay with him more. So I left him.
He make me feel pain and I was in depression for some time but now I am beginning my new life and I have decided to try to find the right person who will be able to love me and care about me in the global net.
I do not know if I will be able to do it. Only time can show it.
Maybe it is a little strange that I write you such things and do not know you rather well yet.
But I want to be honest and open with you. Hope you will appreciate it and will be honest with me too.
So you know some more about my life and me. I do not know what exactly you think about me, but you always can tell me about it.
I also would like to know more about you, your life, your likes and dislikes.
You can always write me about it if you want. All right I need to go now. I am writing you from the Internet cafe.
I do not have computer with phone at home because I do not have opportunity for it.
It is not very far from the place where I work. But it takes some time to get home from here.
I have to take the bus to get home. I do not have car, you know.
I will go now, ok. I will think about you and I will be waiting for your letters with big impatience.
Sincerely your Ekaterina.

Letter 3

Hello my dear Scott!!!
At last I get to the Internet cafe and can write you. How are you these days?
Hope everything is fine. As for me I am rather good. It is really excited that I met you.
I do not know you very well but I really find our connection very interesting and delightful.
I do not know what exactly made me contact your ad. Perhaps it was some kind of intuition.
I am really glad that I wrote you and I hope this intuition will not lie to me.
I think you want to know more things about my life here. You know that I have been living here for all my life.
I spend all my childhood in Penza city. I do not like to remember that time.
I explain you why. I am the orphan and I do not have family. I even do not know my mother and father.
I was brought up in the boarding school for children orphans. You know that it is not happy to live without parents.
I wanted to find my parents when I brought up but then I forgot about this idea.
That's why I decided to work in the boarding school and give all my love and care to children who do not have love from parents.
Now I live with two my girlfriends. We rent the room together. Their names are Tatyana and Nadezhda.
We know each other from the childhood. We were together in the boarding school and they like my sisters now.
They work on the textile plant. We spend a lot of time together.
I think any person can have only few real friends.
I have such friends and I know that I always can hope on their help and support.
I also have some friends from my work but we do not spend a lot of time together.
I think it is because everybody has her or his own life. But sometimes we gather together and go for picnics or cinema.
Most of all I like to watch comedies and romantic films.
What else I can tell you about me?
I believe in God. I am Christian but I think that the main faith is in the heart and not just in going to the church.
There are a lot of people who go to the church just for view or fashion.
I am against such faith. You know that I like romantic things. I like flowers.
I like all flowers but most of all I like roses. It is the flowers of love. My favorite color is blue.
I had one dream in childhood. I wanted to sea Blue Ocean. I have never seen ocean.
Hope I will be able to see it one day. Now I have more serious dreams.
You know that I want to have my own family, my own micro world.
I live with my girlfriends now but I want to have close person who will understand me in everything.
I want to share all moments of the life with him. I want to have beloved man who will love me and will care about me.
I dream about having a family and to have close friends, to gather together and to spend vacations, to have picnics, to go out together.
It is dreams again. I hope that they will come true one day. I think I should let you go now.
I have written you a lot of information about me in my letters.
I spend a lot of time writing letters because I type very slowly. Hope my typing skills will be better in some time.
If you want to know anything you can always ask me about it, ok.
Maybe it is strange but I thought about you. You know that I am very interested in you and our connection.
Hope everything will be fine with it.
Well, I need to close here.
I need to go but I will think about you. I already think about you a lot. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Your friend Ekaterina.

Letter 4

Hello my love Scott!!!
I live in the fog now. I love you most of all in this world and I am very happy that I can love again. I read your letters and all perfectly you I understand.
I am crazy about you and I know that you are too. I miss you and it is very difficult for me to be apart from you.
The idea that you are there and I am here makes me feel pain.
You are my life now and you know it. I want to look into your deep eyes full of emotions, to touch you, to kiss you.
I know that everything will work for us and we will be happy together. I often imagine our wonderful life together.
I can feel you even on such big distance we have between each other. But I want to delete this distance.
I want to be with you so much and I thought about the ways for us to be together.
I wanted to do something for us and our happiness and I went to the Consulate as I wrote to check what I need to come to you.
I had talk with the people there and I have known that I need to do some paperwork and get visa to come to you.
The visa I can get in easiest way is a tourist visa. I was told that I will be able to get it without any problems.
It will take some time and I need to pick up many documents from my side. But I will do everything what depends on me.
But I have one problem which upsets me very much.
It is not convenient for me to ask you for help but I will not be able to do it without your help.
You know, I need to pay for getting visa and doing all paperwork I need to come to you.
And you know that my salary is too small for it.
I have the great desire to come to you, to see you at last, but I will not be able to do it without your help.
I do not want to complain but I do not want to lose you. I love you very much and I will not be able to go through it if I lose you.
I do not know whom I can ask for help except you. You know that I am always honest and sincere with you.
I hope that you will understand me and will help me to do this step.
When I was in the Consulate I gave them some documents and they made a file for me.
Now I need to pay them and they will begin my visa process. They gave me quotations for paperwork I need to do.
So it will be 100$US for the visa and 30 $ for registration.
I also need to pay 120 $ for foreign passport, 75 $ for medical exam and 75 for interview and for some other expenses I can have.
In general I will need about 400$US to cover all expenses.
You know that I do not have such money and I can hope only on your help. Also I have known that there is Western Union office in our city and you can send the money using this bank system to my name.
I was told that it is the quickest and safest way of sending money.
My full name is EKATERINA VOLKOVA.
You also need to know address and name bank near to which I live.
This address: Russian Federation, postal cod 440600, City Penza,
Moskowskaya street, house 9, name bank-VNESHTORGBANK
After you send the money you will need to send me your full name, exact home address, amount of money and Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN).
I was told about it in the bank. I will not be able to get the money without it.
Honey, I will need to pay them during the week, so, please, try to send it as soon as possible.
I really hope that you will understand my situation.
I want to see you very much but I will not be able to do it without your help just because I do not have such money.
I will understand if you do not want to help me but it will make me feel terrible pain that I will not be able to be with you.
Sorry, dear, if it upsets you. I just think that we need to trust each other, to be honest and to share everything.
I hope you are agree with me. I imagine that we can meet soon and I have tears of happiness on my eyes.
I do not want that there were problems which can prevent us.
But I can hope only on your help, dear. It will be the happiest moment of my life when I meet you, hold you.
I love you so much. You are the best what I have in my life. I want to be with you more than anything.
I miss you, dear and wait for your reply with big impatience.
Your love Ekaterina.
