Letter 1

Hi, honey Mike!

It is amazing to get your letter again!!!!!!!!!!!!! I miss you badly, honey. I love you so much. I can't be apart from you, it is so hard. You are my life, I want to hug you so much, to feel your warmth, to look into your eyes, to feel myself happy and safe near you. I am sure everything will be Ok and the destiny will work for us and we will be happy together. I often think about us and try to imagine our life together. Sometimes I feel you so near and close to me. I even feel you on the distance. I feel when you are in a high spirit and when you are sad. I am happy when you are happy. I want to be with you so much and I though about the ways for us to be together.

So I tried to do something for us and decided to go to the Embassy to check what I need to come to you. So, to come to your country I need to make some paper work and to get visa. It will take some time, of course, and to pick up many documents from my side. But I will do everything which depends from me.

But there is one thing which upsets me very much. You see, I need to pay for getting visa. And you know that my salary is too small for it. I don't want to complain but you know that I have a difficult financial situation here. I have a great desire to come to you, to see you at last and only money separate us from each another. I love you so much, honey and I don't want to lose you.

Nobody can help me with it. Of course, I could ask my Mom to help me but she doesn't have such money though she would like to help us. I am honest and sincere with you. I hope that you understand me and that you will do it for me. I already gave some papers to them and they made a file for me. All I need now is to pay them money. So it will be, $55 for visa and $45 for registration, also I need to pay for medical exams - it will be $80, $65 for the interview, and I need to get a foreign passport, it will cost for about $50 and for some another expenses I may have. So in general I will need for about $295. You have to send the money by Western Union. You need to send me your full name, address, amount of money and the control number. You need my full name and address, so here it is ( Ekaterina Malinina; Russia, Chelyabinsk, KIROVA STREET 8-23.).

Honey, I will need to pay them in a week, so, please, try to send them this week. I really hope that you understand my situation. I want to see you very much but without your help I can't do it just because I don't have such money. Money is nothing but they help to overcome all the difficulties on our way to each another.

Sorry, dear, if it upsets you. I just think that we need to trust each another and to share everything. Hope that you agree with me. Just imagine that in short time we could be together. And there is only one problem now which can be solved with your help, dear. I love you so much, you are the best in my life and our meeting could be the happiest event for us. Miss you badly honey and waiting impatiently for your soon reply.

Yours forever Ekaterina
