Letter 2

Hi Tony,

How you today? I hope that all is good. I also am happy today because I have the letter from you. I very happy. Now I work, and I write the letter to you. I am very glad to receive your photo. For me so it is pleasant to see it, that you understand, that I very much wish to see your person as it is possible is more often. I very much want that you sent me your photos more often, because at you such courageous features. You such beautiful man you are not similar to one of men which I know here in Russia. You very beautiful man and for me it is a little strange, why you remained till now one and are compelled to search to yourself for the girlfriend on the Internet, I think, women in your city are blind that do not notice you. I think, if you lived in my city I think I would not pass by you when would meet you in the street. Your person instal in me confidence, that you can protect any woman from any danger. I would like, that near to me there was such person.

And so, I did not write to you about my family. I think that you should know about it. I have been given birth also grown in Kirov. Now I live here. I do not remember my father because he did not live with us. I was grown only by my mother. We were the best friends, we were very much the friend close to the friend. But my mum had a cancer of a stomach, and she has died when I was absolutely the little girl. It was awful and incredible. I could not understand it for long time. I was empty. Even now I remember my mum very much frequently. You know, that I had very happy childhood. My mum and I went in park together. We play together various games. We spoke much. Only through several years I started to understand last, that she felt because I had no father with me. But I have received news from other people, that it was no mistake of my mother. My father (I cannot name his "daddy") never loved my mum. Me has left her lonely when he has learned, that my mum was the pregnant woman. It was very difficult for her to bring up me. We lived only her tiny earnings. But we never complained of our life we have solved all problems together. But we were happy. My mum always spoke me, that I should marry the person which I shall love. After death of my mum I feel very much alone because I have no neither sisters, nor brothers. To be more exact, I no any relatives.

But I have girlfriends. Anastasiya and Marina. They are remarkable girls. We can name us sisters because we are friends more than 15 years, and we help each other. I - confident absolutely, that if I ask Anastasiya, Marina to help me they will never refuse. Our attitudes are very strong, time has checked up them. Also In the summer for entertainment I work in my small garden. But as a hobby it certainly flowers. Roses, orchids, tulips, an aster and it is a lot of others. But main the place in a garden has my favorite flowers, has raised also an orchid. The hope you can sometime see it. I send you a photo of my girlfriends. At the left Marina, and on the right Anastasiya. I hope to you to like. I will wait your photo in the following letter also. I hope, that you will answer my letter. I also hope, that you are interested in our connection. I shall tell to you more about my life in my ambassador of letters.

Sincerely yours Elena...

Letter 3

Hello dear Tony,

How you? What is the weather today in your country? I hope all is well. Today I have had a difficult day, but now I?m free and I can write the letter you. I'm sorry for my previous letter. It was sad. I did not want to make you disappointed. I hope you did not get offended to my story about the mother.

Well, I want to tell you about my hobbies. I like listening to different music. It depends on my mood and feelings. I like Joe Satriane as well. I suppose he is a magnificent guitar player. I hope you agree with me. I like the group ?Dire Straits? very much. I like ?Pink Floyd?. They are not similar to any others. There are a great number of popular musicians abroad. But I remember Russians as well. May be you heard about the Russian group "Spleen" or "Chaif." But I think the most famous Russian group abroad is ?Gorky Park?. Probably you've heard about it. They had a great success at the beginning of 90s. I like going to the cinema very much. Now days a lot of foreign films are on the screen in Russia. Foreign cinema is widely spread in Russia. I like such old American films as Gladiator, Brave Heart. Mel Gibson is a good actor.

My health is the most important thing for me. I do not boast. My health is really good, and I always try to be in a good form. I every morning, try to spend as much times as possible in the open air. I have no car and I take a bus. I have been living in the conditions of rather cold winters and damp autumn since my childhood. Such of climate helps to toughen my health. I do not smoke and do not take alcoholic drinks. I prefer a healthy way of life and I'm proud of it. Sewing and knitting are my hobbies if it's possible to say so. I also like to spend my free time gardening collect berries. I love to ski and to skate in winter.

I can speak about my hobbies for a long time. But I also want to say that I do not like some things. I do not like artful and envious people. I hate when somebody deceives. I do not love cruelty and roughness. I'm not interested in people, who prefer to spend their time drinking alcohol. I also do not like bad untasty meal and cloudy days. I shall be glad, if you tell about you many various things for me. I want to know about you more and more. Because you my Friend. You agree? Friends always should know well each other.

Your Elena...

Letter 4

Hi my Tony,

The day is wonderful today and I?m in high spirits and how are you? I hope all is well.

Yesterday I was in a bad mood. It was rain all day long. I?ve already told you that I live in my own house. It?s very beautiful and comfortable, but it?s too old. I?m disappointed that during the rain water goes through the aperture in the roof and makes the house full of water. I asked a specialist?s help, and he tried to repair some parts of the roof for many times but it didn?t help, because it?s necessary to repair the whole roof, I have to change the roof. And yesterday I come to the conclusion that I have to do it as soon as possible. My girlfriend Marina promised me to help. She always helps me. I?m very glad to have such a girlfriend. She is very close to me and we often spend time together. Marina says that I need a man who will help me and who will really love me. You know I really feel lonely very often but I believe in god luck. I believe in God, he always helps.

I don?t remember if I told you or not about my dog. Its name is Chipa. He the boy. To him 3 years. It is very handsome. I like to play with it, I like to feed it, so I like to take care of it. Chipa is very tender, and it loves me too. Every evening it meets me near the house. You will laugh at me, but I must be sure that somebody or something waits for me in the house, no matter if it?s just my dog. I heard if a person has a pet in a house and if he takes a good care of it the person is a very good house keeper. Marina has a dog at home too, and our dog like to play together. But sometimes dog fight. I?m sorry that I pay too much attention to it in my letters and may be you are not interested in it at all, but I want to tell you about the dearest living being in my life.

Not so long ago I was in a cinema. Because this session began late. I and Marina looked ?Wedding Weekend?. This very entertainment american movie. I like this movie. Marina was delight also. After arrival from cinema I to cook my favorite a dish - pancakes. I made it with jam a gooseberry. Very tasty. It's a pity, that I cannot treat you. Probably during week I will prepare for future house repair. I?ll look for people who will help me with it. I imagine my house after repair It will be very cosy and nice, if everything will go well. I?m sorry, probably my letter is sad but I think you?ll be interested in thoughts and feelings. I send you photos me with my favorite dog Chipa. You have animals? You can send your joint photo? Tell me, if something will be interesting for you. I?ll tell you it in detail. With best regards.


Letter 5

Hi my dear Tony,

Thank you very much for your letter. It brightens my day. I hope that you have the same feeling when you receive my letter. And of course, I enjoy our correspondence and I am serious. I consider you to be my friend, I think that you understand me in lots of things it's easy for me to talk to you on many topics. You can ask me any questions you want.

I think that trust is very important for the relationship, if both of the partners want the relationship to grow. No relationship can be strong without it. Thank you for being honest with me and from my side I can say that I will be honest with you also. I think we should try to tell each other as much as we can.

I would like to know you better from inside, because you seem very interesting to me, so I have a question for you: What qualities do you appreciate in people the most? In my opinion, honesty, faithfulness, kindness, sincere and understanding are very important in people. I also think that in every relationship trust plays the main role. That's why I think that 100 trust should be between man and woman, they should be able to say every single thing to each other, share all their joys and sorrows. If they have a problem they should try to find a salvation together. What do you think? What is your opinion? And feel free to ask me anything, I'll answer you with great pleasure.

I will be looking forward to your letter!!!!
Sincerely Elena...

Letter 6

Hi my dear Tony,

Thank you very much for your letter and your tender words. You are so sweet to me, it is so pleasant read your letters. When I close my eyes I can see you saying this to me. It makes me feel very good. Even though we are far from each other, in my dreams we together. We are walking together at some nice place in and saying tender and warm words to each other. I feel that you are very special to me.

You know Tony, I don't think that the outside beauty is the most important thing, you can be beautiful for some time, even the most beautiful. But in some years this beauty will go away, there will be other people who will look better. I think that the real beauty is inside your soul. The person should be beautiful from inside, in my opinion. Don't you agree with me?

Tony, I see in you the person who I can talk easily with, who is interesting for me. I would like to know your soul, I would like to know everything about you. I see that you are not playing with me or joking. Many of our thoughts are the same, our values are very close and we are looking for the same things. I see that I can establish the emotional connection with you. I can talk to you on any topic. It's very easy for me, it seems like I know you for a long time. I like your thoughts about life and relationships between man and woman. By your letters I can say that you are a decent man with serious intentions. I like that in you. I think that we are even a little bit alike in that. I am also serious about our correspondence. I like to read your letters and I think that I will really like to talk to you in person, you seem to be an intelligent and well educated person.

OK Tony, I am finishing my letter now and I hope that you are having a great day. I am thinking about you and I am really happy that we've met. This thought makes me smile. Hope to hear from you soon.

With hugs Elena...

Letter 7

Hi my dear Tony,

It was very pleasant for me to receive your letter. I am very happy that I've got acquainted with you. We started our correspondence not long time ago, but I like your letters so much, it seems to me like I know you for a long time, your thoughts are so close to mine. I hope that in the future we will become very good friends or even more.

You know Tony, I was thinking a lot about my future life and I think that I would like to move to another country to live, there are few reasons for that. I can tell you why. First of all I should say that I want stability in my life. I think that it’s very hard to get this here in Russia. There are several reasons for that. I don’t have anything against Russia. Russia is a wonderful country, that’s my Motherland and I love it, but the economical situation here is very bad, you can’t be sure in the next day, but I am thinking about my future. And there is a second reason for my intention to move to live to another country. I would like to find my soul mate, the person I can trust completely, the person who is going to be near me all the time, love me and take care of me. Russian men have lots of bad habits, they drink a lot. My dad used to drink a lot. It gave my mom much pain. I don’t want this to happen to me. So, I think now you understand why I would like to move somewhere from Russia.

I would really like to have a good and strong family based on good emotional connection first of all and understanding and surely love. I think that these things are the most important. I would like to have my second half near me to feel that I am safe, that I am loved and that I have a person near me whom I can give all my tenderness and care that is inside of me. I do have a lot to give, but for right now there is no one special whom I can give it to and I don't want to waste it just for someone, I want to meet my only one, my special one.

I am thinking a lot about you, and I would like to hear from you soon. Ok, I am finishing my letter now and I will be looking forward to your fast reply!

With warm hugs Elena...

Letter 8

Hi my Tony,

I'm very glad that you have written to me. I need your letters more and more often. They make me happy. I was determined with work in clinic! I shall be the surgeon. I shall soon have holidays, I shall work as the senior surgeon. Hope, that you is glad for me because the surgeon is my favorite trade.

Today I have been late for work. When I woke up in the morning, my neighbor came to me. She is an old woman and she is a very good and king woman. We address each other when we need something. Today she came to me because she had a problem. The door to her house has been broken and she couldn’t close it. She lives alone as well, her husband died 5 years ago and now nobody is ready to help her. So, I went to have a look at the door. We tried to repair it but we could do nothing. I am a bad carpenter (smile). As it turned out something was wrong with a lock, it was necessary to ask a specialist’s help. Klava (this is my neighbor’s name) was very disappointed, what we could do, we are women, and it was clear that a specialist’s help was necessary. I tried to calm down my neighbor because she doesn’t feel well and it’s very dangerous for her to be nervous. She had to be hospitalized, but she refused to do it and now she has to take injections every day. I promised to ask for a carpenter. In our clinic there is a man, who is responsible for repair, if something is wrong with the clinic. He drinks alcohol a lot, but he has “golden hands” (in Russia it means that a person with “golden hands” can do all the things very good) I want to ask him to help my neighbor with her door. I want that he attempt to repair my roof. I do not know whether he will agree. I shall hope for his help. I can’t find him now but as soon as I see him I’ll ask. It is very important to help old people. More than it our government doesn't treat old people well. Pensions are tiny. They don’t get any social aid. Our medicine is not free of charge. Old people have to spend all the money on medicines. Of course it is not good, it’s unfair, unjust. But the economic situation in Russia is not highly developed. Well I am not interested in politics but the question about social aid is very important for me.

I do not remember I wrote to you about my diploma? I have the diploma the Europe-standard. This diploma entitles to work as the doctor in your country.

Your Elena…

Letter 9

Hi my Tony,

Thank you very much for your letter, I was very glad to receive it as usual because your letters always put me in a good mood and make me smile. I have phone. But it now under repair. I have dropped it in water when erased clothes. And it does not work now. As soon as I will take away it. I will give you my number. For now if you wish to hear my voice. I could call to you from post phone. For this purpose I need to know your telephone number.

I am thinking a lot about you and I like to read from you. I am very glad that you understand me. You the unique person which to worry about me. You know, I need to tell you something. I think that friendship is very important in the relationships. Let me explain what I mean here. I think that passion and affection are very good, but two people that decide to be together need to know how deal with each other in everyday life. You know what I mean? And I think that friendship between them will help a lot. I would like to see a very good, I can say the best friend in my soul mate. I think that emotional connection is very important, so that two people will feel very comfortable with each other. How do you think?

When I am reading your letters Tony, I feel that you are honest and sincere with me, you are telling me a lot about you, so I want to give you the same thing. You know, I have a dream. I would like to find a true love, a special person who is going to love and take care of me and I will do the same for him. I want our love to be forever. I think that when I meet that special one I will give him all of my tenderness, care and love. And what is your dream? What do you want the most from life? Please, tell me. It will be very interesting for me to know what you are thinking and dreaming about.

You know Tony, I need to tell you something. I have never thought before that this is possible to find a very good friend, somebody special with the help of Internet. But now I can say that this happened to me, I’ve met you and it seems to me like I know you for a long time even though we exchanged only a few letters. Now I can say that there is a person in the world who understands me, my life position, whose dreams and intentions are close to mine. You should know that you are dear to my heart, I am always ready to listen, understand and try to help you if you need that. Ok, I am finishing my letter now and I will be looking forward to your reply!!!

I am thinking about you!!!
With tender hugs and kisses


Letter 10

Hi my Tony,

Now I'm writing to your letter and I'm happy. It's very pleasant that I have such the close person as you are. It's a pity that you are far from me. But I will hope that we will meet one day. I think we will be glad to see each other when we know each other better. Marina asks me about you every day. I say to her that I'm constantly thinking about you. I not model. I never thought of model career. I always wished to be the doctor what to help people.

Earlier I didn't manage to find the carpenter. But today I have seen him in the morning and I asked him to repair the door in the Klava house. In the afternoon he came and said that he had done everything and changed the lock. I thanked him but he said: "Never mind" because he is always ready to help old people. My neighbor came a little bit later and told me about the carpenter. It turned out that he refused to take money for his work. Klava tried to give him some money but he said that he would be offended if she didn't stop doing it. Klava said: "He has gone with nothing". By the way he and his college will repair my roof in the house. You know many people in Russia help other people and don't take money for it, if they know that the people have to money. I think it's the only good feature of character of the Russian people which roots go to the old far USSR.

It's a pity that many Russian men became alcoholics. I remember that many-many years ago my mum and I had to make a fence around our house. But what could we do? Mum and I? When my mother came to a shop to buy nails, three men asked her what for she needed nails. She told they and they began laughing, when learnt that a young lady and her little daughter wanted to do. They came to our house together with my mom and everything was ready in the evening. They refused to take money. The only thing we could do for them just to feed them with pancakes after their work. By the way since that time it is my favorite food. One of the man asked if the had something to paint the fence. My mum answered that she would buy paint a little bit later. Next day in the morning the 2 men came and they brought their own paint and painted the fence. We wanted to pay them for it some money, but they refused. They said that the paint was left after the painting of their fence.

Yesterday in the evening I was thinking of my future work in the clinic. I'm happy that I will get my favorite job. I should not study, because I have the diploma of the surgeon of the European standard. I don't know how to spend this month, I don't want to waste my time useless. I must think it over. Of course I will write letters to you. But it will take only the part of my day. What to do in the rest? I must find a decision. I hope, you are not sick and tired of my letter. But I want to tell you much. I think you are not against of it, because I suppose you are my closest the man of my heart. Don't forget to write letters to me.

Your Elena.

Letter 11

Hi my dear Tony,

How are you doing today? What’s new? I am fine over here and I was very glad to hear from you because I miss you very very much!!! I am thinking about you all the time, you are very dear to me.

Tony, you know, today I woke up with sun beams that were coming out of my window and my first thought was about you! I was laying in my bed and thinking, imagining that may be some wonderful day we’ll be waking up together like this and the first thing you will do when you wake up is kissing me and wishing me a good morning and I will do the same for you. You know, I liked that thought. Who knows, may be some day it will be the reality? How do you think? Would you like that, hun?

OK my dear, I am finishing my letter and I will be looking forward to your reply!!!

I miss you!
With sweet thoughts about you,


Letter 12

Hi my Tony,

How are you? Today I've the big desire to write to you. Hope you don't object? Place of my work the Kirov regional clinical hospital 3 (traumatologic hospital). I work in it as the surgeon-dentist. I studied as the trade the Kirov medical college.

I suppose I can tell you about my bad experience in relations. If you are not interested in it you may stop reading the letter. I won't be offended. I think I can tell you the story because you have become very very close to me recently. I hope you have an idea of the problem with alcohol in Russia and I suppose you understand why I don't want to look for a husband in Russia. Let's begin since the very first day of the acquaintance. I worked in the clinic as a surgeon's assistant. I was going home after my work but it began raining and I could not go because I had left my umbrella at home. It was summer but never the less I didn't want to get wet and to take a cold. I was standing under the roof of the building waiting till the rain would stop. But the rain was not going to stop and I wanted to go home in the rain. But a young man was going in my direction with an umbrella. He saw that I couldn't go with an umbrella and offered me to take his one. I asked him: "And what about you?" He said that he would spend some time in the clinic and may be the rain would stop soon. I asked how I would be able to return him the umbrella. He said his address to me and his name. His name is Vladimir. It was not far from the clinic. I wrote down his address and promised to give him the umbrella the next day in the evening. On my home I thanked the young man and asked the God to stop the rain. But it was raining the whole night. I cursed myself that I had taken the umbrella and that he was wet to the skin because of me. I didn't sleep a wink at night. The next day in the clinic was so long for me. I was looking forward to finishing my work to give the umbrella back to Vladimir. I wanted to learn how he was. As soon as my working day was over, I changed my working clothes and left my work. Vladimir was standing at the door smiling. It turned out that he remembered the time when my work was over. He came to meet me. I asked about his health at once. He said that everything was all right. He didn't get too wet because he was running home. Then we walked for a long time. We talked a lot. My mum had died already and I was alone. He was the dearest and the closest man in the world for me at that time. He saw much of each other at time. But i didn't invite him my house I wanted to check him. Once we were invited to a Birthday party of his friend. I agreed to go to see his friends, as i wanted to know more about him. Vladimir didn't drink even champagne. I thought it was because of me, because I didn't drink as well. But his friends told me that Vladimir really didn't drink alcohol. I liked Vladimir. I think so did he. We became more than friends and he began to live in my house. First 2 months we were very happy, we were on the seventh heaven. But then he got a very good job. He became a lawyer. He made much money. But he began drinking alcohol. At first a little bit - then more and more. He didn't sleep at home at night. When he was drunk he began beating me. I thought he change for the better, that he would the same he had been before. But nothing changed. Once I was beaten by him bitterly and left my house. He didn't come back 9 days. Our friends told me that they had seen Vladimir with other girls. I came to the conclusion that it was enough to bear it. When he came back he even wasn't sorry and didn't apologize. I don't think that he had forgotten that he had beaten me. I didn't say a word in the evening. I started the talk in the morning when he was sober. So I made him leave my house forever. He was shouting, screaming and he even broke a photo in the frame where my mom and I were. I said to him that I would call a police, well he had gone. Forever. Now I am happy that I didn't marry him. Don’t want such relations once again. Almost all Russian men drink alcohol a lot that's why I don't want to have any relations with them. I suppose you understand me. I'm sorry my letter is too long. But I wanted to show you what I am feeling.

I am very happy that I got acquainted with you. I hope our communication will never stop. Marina has told to you "Hi". I have to finish me letter. Thanks that you write me.

With all my heart, your Elena.

PS. By the way, I have overlooked to tell to you. Today carpenters have repaired my roof. I am happy! It is very little necessary for the lonely woman for happiness!!! (Smile) My roof was repaired by the same carpenter who repaired Klava door.

Letter 14

Hello my dear Tony,

Why you send one and too the letter 2 times? I thought that we need to learn at first each other as it is possible is better. I know a little about you and I think you so know about me a little.

I opened my heart to you and I would really like our relationships to be forever like it is now, like we are in the wonderful sweet dream!

Letter 15

Hi my sunshine Tony,

How are you today? What is new with you? I am doing fine over here, thinking about you a lot. I was very glad to receive a letter from you. You know, that your letters always bring me joy. So I decided to come internet cafe and write you a letter right away, now I have a little bit more free time, so I can write you almost every day or every two days! This makes me feel better because I have got used to your letters and I miss you if I don’t hear from you, you know?

Today I went for a walk with my girlfriend Marina. We’ve been walking in the park and you know I always had a thought how nice it could be if we (you and I) were walking together. How do you think, wouldn’t it be nice?

You know Tony, I’ve told you before that I wanted to find my true love, my soul mate, I think that I am very close to it now. I am very serious about you, there is only one thing left. Our meeting. This is very important, in my opinion. And this is the best way to learn much more about each other. I am dreaming about it, about the time we can see each other for the first time, look into each others eyes… It’s only my dreams for now, but I want all this to come true?

OK, I am finishing my letter now and I will be looking for your next letter very impatiently!!!

Have a great day and write back soon!
I miss you!


Letter 16

Hi my dear Tony,

Yesterday when I went to bed I was thinking about you, about us, remembering how we’ve met, remembering our first letters when we didn’t know each other at all and comparing to what we have now and this comparison made me smile. Because now I feel that I have the person in the world that cares about me, who I can talk to about everything, the one who is very interesting for me. Honey, you know, I am very glad that we have each other. I think that the worst thing in the world is when you are alone, when nobody is near you, when there is no person who is close to your heart and soul. I think that even though we are apart from each other now, we are still happy, happy with the thought that we are in each other’s life. Happy to think about us, to dream about our meeting that is going to happen some time, about our future, happy future if everything goes right.

My dear Tony, all above is said honestly, from the bottom of my heart. This is how I feel, this is what inside of me, deep in my soul. I think that you are that special one who I can share it with. I wanted you to know how I feel and what I am thinking about. Honey, please, tell me what are you thinking about and what is in your mind? I would really like to know that, this is important for me. Important to know what are your joys and sorrows.

Bye for now, my sunshine!
Remember I am thinking about you!!!
Have a great day!
With tender hugs and kisses,

Letter 20

Hello my warm angel Tony,

I am madly glad to receive from you your warm and your most gentle letter. Each your word is filled by such warm solar beams. I always read your letters on some times. I read and I represent you nearby, I close eyes, I look how you near to me sit. These imaginations it after all so is healthy and so it is pleasant.

Darling Tony, I thought much, and have understood, that we should meet you. I understand that if we want with you strong relations the meeting is necessary. You with me agree? But I very much wish to arrive to you. Next week on work to me give holiday. And if you not against, I like to spend this time with you. I would like to visit you in your country. It is very interesting to me to learn culture of your country. Interestingly as you live. You know, that I never was outside of Russia. I very much wish to see you. The darling you is ready to accept me in the country?

I had a dream this night. Today you have dreamt me. You have met me at the airport when I have arrived to you. You stood in a white jacket, and in hands you had very big bouquet of a rose. On your person the dazzling smile shone. You have approached to me and have strong embraced me, and I have kissed you for the first time. When we have left the airport, you have suggested to walk on a city and to show me sights. I have agreed, and you have started to show me your fine city. We went, talked, told different histories from a life. We are surrounded with beautiful green avenue, we go lengthways it, then unexpectedly you pick up me on hands and start to turn with me. I laugh, and even in a dream I have felt warmth of your embraces. Then you have put me on the earth, and we have appeared the person to each other. In your eyes I saw the reflexion, reflexion of the dark blue sky. And at all have not noticed that evening, and began to darken. You have suggested me to go to you home and to have supper with you. When we have arrived to you, the table has been already covered. You set fire two candles and have switched off light. We sat the friend opposite to the friend and have started to eat. We spoke and laughed. You have included slow music and have invited me to dance. You took me for a waist, and I have compressed your neck, and we have started to dance. On this place the alarm clock has rung out. And I have woken up. This dream such was such distinct, I so did not wish to wake up. And when I have woken up, it was very a pity to me, that it was only a dream. I very much would want that this dream was carried out.

I hope that you liked my dream. I will look forward your letter

Yours and only yours Elena...

PS. I hope, you will not give up to meet me in the country. If you cannot, simply tell to me about it. I require only your consent, you agree to meet me??????

Letter 21

Dear mine Tony,

Today I went in travel agency and have taught that it to be necessary for me for arrival in your country. People have convinced me of travel agency that we can be together. I am in good mood. I wondered how much it would cost for me to make visa. They said that only the examination of application for visa will cost me 30 pounds. This money won't be returned even if the application is rejected. To get visa I must go to Moscow where the embassy is. I'll to visit a lot of agencies, offices and organization in Kirov in Moscow. This is the usual way to get visa, it may take me many months. I said to them that I could wait for a long time. And they offered me to solve the problem and it will take me less time if I use Full Package Service (FPS). FPS includes additional payments for a category of the visa, consular services, and preparation for interview with commission. FPS costs 360 pounds, but the visas agency remove all the problems and thus increases the chance of getting a visa without excessive delays (I can get a visa in a week or two). I thought for a long time and came to the conclusion that this variant is the only right for me. Whether I do not know correctly has made, having paid such money. Probably I needed to consult to you all over again. But I have thought that other exit is not present. For a cheap payment documents are very for a long time made. We do not have time to wait. I agreed and registered my application for visa, hoping that you'll be glad to meet me.

Can you imagine that we'll spend some weeks together or even can all life. It is not important for me where to live if I shall be sure in your feelings for 100 percent my loved and native I without any meditations shall stay to live in a place with you. For the sake of happiness and family I am ready on many things. I very much would dream that you all life were only near to me. I'm immensely happy when I'm thinking about the opportunity. I'll be everything myself? May be you think I try to do too quickly. But I can't wait for ages, I'm happy now at present time. Necessary to begin moving to in your life, it's important to go ahead, to overcome difficulties to take aim. Very soon I'll leave the work and I'll be able to spend my vacation with you. I have never been abroad. But now I have a chance to meet you. It's a dream. You are my friend, and friend sometimes meet each other. I think it will be great, wonderful, and fantastic.

I hope you don't think that I'm too impudent. I just want to meet you and to spend some time with you. I suppose you haven’t changed your attitude towards me after this letter. I'm looking forward to seeing to calm down my heart. Please tell me you be able to meet me? Will you be happy to face me? I hope you!!

Your Elena…

Letter 22

Hi my dear Tony,

I talked to Marina about you Tony, for a long time yesterday in the evening. I told her that I wanted to meet you. Marina supported me in my desire. She said that I couldn't miss a chance to see you. Marina is very glad that I've got acquainted with you. She wants me to be happy. I hope that one day you and Marina will be friends. I believe that Marina be as close to you as to me. Now I often think of you before sleeping.

For me a great honor to get acquainted with such fair, open, kind person as you.... Now I with impatience wait for the notice from travel agency. For me days became very long. I want that have faster flown by days of expectation. I want to inform you date of my start faster. I think about our letters to each other. I often ask myself what will be then, when we'll face. It's very interesting how long we would be able to talk when we met for the first time. What do you think of it? It seems to me that I want to tell you much and it will take me several days to tell all about myself. But I'm shy and can be confused when I'll meet you for the first time. But I think that we are mare than friends that is why we will be able to speak of what we want.

I saw a plane not long ago. And I thought that these "Iron birds" allow meeting million people who are happy to see each other every day. But when I think about my future flight on board the plane I can't forget catastrophe of two planes. It was terrible to see grief and tears of relatives of the dead people. Now our government is sure that terrorist acts took place hare. I believe that guilty people were severely punished. They have no right to prevent peaceful people from living. I hate terrorism and violence! You should know that fear of terrorists will never stop me. I'll be able to fly on board the plane and to be afraid of nothing. In my childhood I was flying by plane. But people say that flights are if it's true. I heard that passengers are very well served during the flight. I'm interested to see it. Sorry, but now I don't know exact date when I can arrive to you. But I shall necessarily inform when I can. Hope you can patiently wait? I'm ready to give much to know precisely when I can see you.

Your love Elena.

Letter 23

Hello my dear Tony,

Thanks you for your letters is very pleasant for me, that you have appeared in my life. You became dear to my heart. I any more do not see the life without you. Yesterday I went on film. "Star wars. The latent threat 3D". You looked this film? I have not absolutely understood sense of it cinema because thought absolutely about the friend. I all the day think of our meeting. I cannot more about anything think. I am glad that you approve my act. It is difficult for me.

Now I every day go to travel agency and I try to find out I skin the information concerning readiness of my documents. Today to me have told that probably tomorrow the day after tomorrow me will cause silt on interview in embassy. I was very glad to receive such information. Now day for me lasts as a month as I think all about our long-awaited meetings. I finish my dear letter.

With love Elena.

Letter 24

Hi my dear Tony,

Dear Tony, I was glad to receive your letter. Thanks you for given information. Today I have arrived to Moscow. I am very tired, and could not write to you is a lot. Dear, I informed you some times that cause me to Moscow on interview Now I near Embassy the in internet-cafe. I write to you the letter and I worry. I think that my destiny tomorrow is solved. Hope to me ' give the visa and I can meet you. It will be the greatest day in my life!! It's a pity that I cannot write for a long time. Because I am very strongly tired. I hope, that I can soon write to you about results of visit to Embassy. If I cannot write from Moscow I shall write from Kirov.

With love yours and only yours Elena.

PS. Write a phone number, I will call you if at me will arise what or questions.

Letter 25

Hi my dearest Tony,

I have more recently left embassy and at once have decided to write to you. I write to you the letter and I smile. I'm so glad! If I could, I would speak with you for a long time. But unfortunately now it is impossible. But I am confident, that our meeting will take place also we shall speak in person.

I want to tell to you about the commission in Moscow. I hope to you it interestingly!!! Tomorrow I shall already write to you from native city. I shall arrive to Kirov most likely tomorrow in the evening. I can probably have the visa. Because I tried for it much. I worry, you should understand it. I never thought that the commission will ask such unusual questions. They asked about my sexual life, they asked about children, about work, about patriotism, about my attitude to your country, about my conversance and awareness of events which happened in the world and in your country, about my religion and belief. I have told about all my life in detail. I spoke about very thing fairly how it's really. To me have told that my answers are unexpected and as a rule applicants don't answer such questions so directly and openly. They haven't got used to hear such answers, but they said that to hear sincere and truthful answers is much more pleasant than words which come not from heart and reason. Now I should wait the decision. I hope that my visa will be ready within the next few days. The representative of embassy at once informs about it to travel agency. After that I shall buy the ticket in your country. After I shall buy the ticket I shall inform date of the start.

Now I agree with expression: "Expectation of death is worse than the death" I can't concentrate on anything. My heart so worry, I can't work. They have told that the decision will be accepted in several days. I so worry. I so want that this small dream was come true. I simply want to see my lovely friend. I think the God will help me. I simply want to meet you. I already see us together and I sink in dreams. I want to construct with you the ship to float under sails in boundless ocean. I want to meet with you a dawn and to see off a sundown. We will float on our ship and our love will illuminate our way. We will look at night at stars, we'll be pleased in the afternoon to the sun. If there will be a storm, our love will protect us. If there will be a calm, our love will be a wind. Our love will be a beacon for us. We will be floating at ocean of love and oblivion and nothing can separate us. We'll name our ship - Dream. It will be the small ship, but very strong. Because we will make our ship from belief, hope and love. It's impossible to wait, when your dream will fall to you from the sky. It's necessary to go to the dream. It's necessary to clear and build the road itself. If in heart there is a belief and dream, if in heart there is a love and hope, it is necessary to achieve the dream by all means. I always go to the dream. I don't sit on a place. In my life there were very few light moments. On this I try to make everything that my dreams have come true. I understand that now it's only dreams. But these dreams brighten my life. I hope that yours also. Nothing will keep me to arrive to you!!!

With tenderness your Elena.

Letter 26

Hello my Tony,

Dear Tony, I have received your electronic letter. I was very glad to read him. Your letters install to me unlimited quantity of confidence. Having read them I become the omnipotent person. Very much has changed from the moment of our acquaintance. I, think that I began to live only after acquaintance to you. Till this time I only existed. After our acquaintance my life has sharply changed in the best side. It has noticed not only I. My fellow workers, my friends, even my patients - all have noticed change in my life. Everyone ask the same question. It is interesting to all why I look so happy...

I think that I knowingly have visited to Moscow. From trip I still had many positive emotions. I when did not go on so important affairs, therefore strongly worried. On road to Moscow I with anybody did not communicate because thought of interview in embassy. I experienced that any failure can visit me. I was afraid that can give up to me in reception of the visa. But my experiences appeared are vain. On interview to me did not give the exact answer. In a corridor I have waited the person which was in the commission and he has told that I should not worry. Has told that in two or three days representatives of embassy will contact travel agency and will cause me to Moscow for reception of the visa. Therefore I have gone home with quiet soul. Now I need to wait the answer from embassy then it is necessary to buy the ticket in your country, to go again to Moscow to receive the visa and to wait day of a start. The second trip to Moscow does not deliver me of inconvenience. The ticket to me will need to be bought in Kirov from representatives of travel agency. To take off I should from the Moscow airport because I will need to come in embassy and to receive the visa. It would be convenient for me to take off from the Kirov airport but for this purpose to me some days in Moscow should to live and to wait for readiness of the visa. Moscow not city familiar to me. Hotels cost very dearly and it is terrible to me to be in Moscow one. Therefore I have chosen not absolutely convenient, but a safe variant. Today I went to travel agency and told him about trip to Moscow. They sincerely were glad for me. Unfortunately the Embassy yet did not contact travel agency. I think that has passed not enough time. I think tomorrow or the day after tomorrow representatives of embassy will cause me for reception of the visa. I want that it has taken place as soon as possible. I want to buy as soon as possible the ticket to you and to wait for day of a start. Dear if tomorrow or the day after tomorrow me will cause for reception of the visa I shall buy the ticket to you. I shall buy the ticket with a stock of 3-6 days. I shall better lead these days pending. Suddenly there will be unforeseen circumstances.

Dear, I finish the letter and I shall go home. I need to prepare much for all for the period of the absence. I love you and I want to be only with you. The feeling of love amplifies every new day.

Your love Elena.

Letter 27

Hi my dear Tony,

Dear, I was very glad to receive your letter. My visa is available, but I can take away her only after I shall redeem the ticket in your country. Tomorrow or after tomorrow, I shall buy the ticket in your country but only after to me inform from travel agency, and will tell, that my documents are completely ready. For arrival to you.

I every day think of our meeting with you. I know how it is to be thinking about someone all the time, I have felt that as well. So then I try to keep myself busy doing other things and it helps. I guess that's how I've been able to get along all this time without somebody special in my life. I keep myself busy with study, with friends. I have become used to it now, but not entirely. Some times I get along doing chores around the house, listening to music, or helping other people with their problems. It has been so many times that I wanted to be with someone. So as time went on, little by little I had to learn how to not feel lonely. But I have also learned that it's not all that possible. And in the same way I try to avoid getting hurt, as it has happened to me before. And that too is not all that possible. On the other side I have seen other peoples mistakes and I like to think that I wont make the same ones. I try to think of many possible results, I like to be cautious and to think ahead, but I have learned that as careful that I may be, there is always something that can go wrong. So why should I continue to hold back and not live my life like others, by going ahead with what my heart says and being as cautious as possible, right? We are only human and imperfect, all I can try is to do the best I can, with the person that best fits my way of thinking. And it would seem so strange that I could find such a person on the other side of the planet. Imagine if the Internet didn't exist, I would have never known about you and I would probably continue to live the same way forever. There is only so much happiness that one can achieve alone, but I would like to think that I could achieve so much more with you. It would be wonderful to stop dreaming about it and make it come true. So at the same time, I also think about what would be needed to make a relationship work and how to provide for as much as possible. It's not easy when other pressures are felt in a relationship. So if at first we should decide to take this beyond what it has become so far, I think it will be like awaking from a dream and trying our best to make the dream come true. Like I said before, there is a lot to talk about, a lot to learn and understand. The feeling of love is great, but it takes little bit more to have a place to live, to be healthy and have a family. I know that these are subjects that can't be decided or solved in a week, but the most important thing will be addressed, how well we get along.

There is one thing that I know for sure, I like you very much and we will have a wonderful time together. Your words in every letter have shown me that we think the same way, so I truly believe that something great and long lasting will come out of this. I think about you every day and wish you were near me already. I will just have to be patient and wait for that moment to come true.

With hugs and tender kisses.
Yours Elena...

Letter 28

Hello my dearest Tony,

I have good news, very well for me and for you! I wanted to call to you and to explain all by phone. But I am afraid, that you become angry on me and will refuse to help me, therefore I have decided to write to you.

Today in the morning I have come to travel agency where to me informed good news. I have got the visa. Now it is necessary for me to buy the ticket to you and to go in Moscow behind the visa and to wait day of my start. I'm immensely happy. I will be able to see you in person!!! Dear I it is very good to speak in English you to not worry for us. I addressed the company which sells tickets for plans. I asked them how, as to me have explained to me it is necessary to have the ticket to you I would be able to go to London on the July, 21st, and how much it would cost. They said that the ticket would cost 933 pounds. I asked them to find a cheaper ticket, because the price is too high for me. But as it turned out I would not be able to have a cheaper ticket so quickly, the date is too early. Tickets must be reserved long beforehand. I asked them to offer me other variants of the flight. We found the most suitable one. The flight is on July, 24th. The ticket costs 285 pounds I asked the to reserve the ticket for me. But they refused to do it having said that they had a lot of clients. They cannot reserve my ticket without advance money. I was imploring them. But it did not work. They said that they would help me with great pleasure but they couldn't. The rules are so. I was in a panic, I was so disappointed. Then I asked them if I could give just a part of the money. But they did not agree again.

I asked them for a long time saying that my fiance Tony is waiting for me. If I asked them a little bit longer I would burst out of crying. Maybe God heard my prayers, and the service worked agreed to reserve the ticket on my conditions. But I have too little time to pay, for the ticket. They said if I did not day the rest of the ticket price, I would loose the money I'd already given to them. I was angry, but they explained that it would be very difficult to sell the ticket for the plane which is flying. They would have to lower the price. I agreed. They told me to pay 723 pounds. But it was too much for me, because I had only 225 pounds. I asked to wait for me during 12 hours. I went out of the room. Marina met me at the door. I told her everything. She understood everything and advised me to pawn our treasures to a pawnshop. It was very difficult for me to agree to do it. I did not want to burden Marina. But at the same time I want to meet you. We pawned the treasures, I got 90 pounds and I paid the part of the ticket price 315 pounds. It was my last money, it was for the plane by which I'm going to come to you. It was very difficult for me to tell you this story. I have done all what I could. I have paid for the visa. I have paid for the part of the ticket. But this was not enough. The money was not enough. I did not want to burden you. I wanted to come to you with nobody's help. I thought my money would be enough. But I failed. Now I feel guilty myself. I did not manage to do all myself for our meeting. I thought nothing would prevent me from meeting you. But I must pay the rest of the money for the ticket It's just 408 pounds. I must pay it till the July, 24th. Otherwise I will loose the money I have paid and i will loose the chance to see you. And our treasures will be sold by the pawnshop. Now I feel guilty that I could not do what i promised to come to you with my own money. I always do what I promise. I feel at ease now, I'm ashamed of asking you to help me. Unfortunately the clinic did not pay me the money I'd earned. I really hoped to get this money. But I'll get the money from the clinic in a month or two. Because it's very typical for Russia to hold up the payments of salary. I asked the clinic to give me my money earlier, but they refused to do it. Now the clinic does not have the money necessary for me. Our clinic depends on the budget, it did not get money for a longtime. I think it's because of the financial crisis and terrorist acts. I must say to you that I will not be able to meet you because I will not be able to pay the whole sum of money myself.

Of course I realize that I should not ask you to give me the money. But at the time I cannot just that I will not come to you. I have done too much to organize our meeting. If I refuse to meet you it will mean that everything was in vain. It's terrible for me to refuse to come to you, I have done all what I could. Now I want you to help me and I think there is nothing horrible if I ask you to help me. Of course I realize that may be you have no feelings to me and may be you're not interested in our meeting. I understand that the sum of money is too big. I know it and that's why it's more difficult for me to ask it from you. But at the same time any person can find himself in my conditions. And now there is only one thing which I can do. I just must say that I will never come to you. But I do not want to say so, because I want to meet you. That's why I must be honest, I need your help. Of course I understand that I must not do it. But I'm an honest person. I'm ashamed of asking you to help me, but life is a difficult thing, everything can happen. Of course it's up to you to decide if you want to help me or not. It's bad, but not fatal. I will loose my money. It's bad but not mortal either. 390 pounds which I have paid for the visa and 315 pounds which I have paid for the ticket are too much for me. But I'm not sorry for what I have done for our meeting. In fact money is just paper, our treasures are just metal details. That's why I was the first who decided to meet each other. But I do not want all my efforts to be spent in vain. If you really want to meet me, if you can help me to organize our meeting please send me the money till the morning of the July, 24th. Please forgive me my words. I say so because I'm in despair. Now when just one step can connect us, I'm afraid. I need you, I want to be with you, I need you help, believe me, I'm honest with you. I did not manage to estimate my forces. And all my efforts spent in vain. I understand that the sum of money is too big for you. I did not want to ask you. I can do everything myself. My loneliness made me strong. I had always been living with my own efforts I always relied on myself. I asked somebody to help me very seldom, but now I ask you to help me. I will give you all the money back as soon as I'm able. Maybe I made you offended. But I need you. I do not know if my letter you disappointed. But I have written you an honest letter. I'm looking forward to you answer. I hope for you. I ask you to not worry. I send data of my flight:

Hello my darling Tony,

Darling Tony, today I have read your letter. I have understood your thoughts. I wish to explain you some things. You should understand, that I have passed through much that my visa has been approved. I very much respect you, your opinion. But you also should respect my works, my efforts... But it not the most important thing.

I told to the friends about you only positive lines. I spoke to friends about our acquaintance, about our love, about our relations. I was delighted with our correspondence, from our plans. My friends know, that we will meet in your country, that we love each other, that we are fine. They know, that I will soon visit you. They wish our of good luck... What now I will speak to friends??? I should tell, what my favourite does not trust me??? How then they will think of you??? I think, that you will be my husband, I think, that I will get acquainted with your friends, and you with my friends. I do not wish to break that mutual understanding which has developed between us. I do not want!!! I do not wish to spoil those mutual understanding which were between us. You understand me??? I want, that our love continued to grow, our relations continued to develop... All it is under construction on mutual trust. I trust you the safety. I trust you myself … I hope, that you show to me trust and will not break our love. You should understand, that I not so silly person to change our love for money. Unless the normal person will refuse own happiness for the sake of money??? Unless you consider me not as the good person??? Unless the happiness, love friendship, relations stand 408 pounds?????? It is very silly. I am not the silly person. I wish to be with you. I want, that our love developed, that our relations were under construction... I hope, that you understand about what I speak. I hope, that you will help. I promise, that you will not regret that helped our meeting.
