Letter(s) from Elena Sergeeva to George (USA)

Letter 1

Hi my dear friend George. I waited this minute to answer you with impatience. I am very glad my letter was pleasant to you. Sorry that I didn't wrote you yesterday. I had to much work, and I have no time to answer you. I hope you understand me. I belive in love at first sight. But it's not a love as everyone think. It is such strange feeling... You feel that this person is pleasant to you also you want to communicate with him or her. Just you only think that it's love. Happens more often, that you or this person will be disappointed... George, today I was late for work. My alarm clock has broken. But my boss did not saw my delay. Till this time he has not come. I always rise early in the morning. The rhythm of my life in which I live, forces me to be the morning person. My alarm clock does not ask me what is my nature. I always rise early, and I go to bed not so late. Your letters become so close to my heart, and I am pleased to see them like a child. You write very pleasant letters. Your words are so pleasant, I feel myself...in heavens. Please, write me every day, even two words, I must know with you everything - is good. I shall be sure for you and I shall not worry. Your first e-mail was small light of sun when I have opened door on the other hand was the whole new world, which I never saw earlier. Beautiful, absolutely another and full of surprises. These relations, which we have begun through e-mail - begining new long friendship which could develop something more? As you already know George, I was not for a long time in your country. I was in the USA 9 months ago. I went there as the tourist. I had Tourist visa B-2. Term of my visa has ended. Term of my visa was 6 months. All my charges on trip were paid by firm in which I worked. I could not pay it independently. But it is firm does not exist any more. And I do not go any more in the USA. But I hope visit again your country. I very much liked your country. It is absolute other country, not similar as ours. I very much would want to begin a life in your country. Sometime.... Love is such intoxicating narcotic, which makes do mad, but sometimes funny actions. Only person in love can fill the whole bath with champaign, only person in love can give one million scarlet roses or stand whole night under balcony of the loved woman singing serenades. In our city there is an Internet - cafe, but it is very far from my house. I live on surburb of city. I should pass about 1 hour by bus to reach Internet - cafe. Today I spoke with my boss, I have asked him to use the Internet at least 25-30 minutes in day. He promised to think about it. I cant let him deprive me my private life how much it cost me. I have the most dear person, you George, I have understood it clearly yesterday when I went in park and thought about you. I have closed my eyes and thought about you. A wind was blowing, it scutched my hairs and enveloped my body by its chilly freshness. I don't know why, but I thought that you changed in wind, and you tenderly touched my hairs with you invisible hands. It seemed to me that I am situated somewhere near you. And my heart began beating as never before. I was so pleasant and I was ready to yell from happiness. People who were passing near me, probably thought, I am a strange lady, they saw me sitting on the bench with closed eye and smiling. But I didn't think about their opinion. I went and thought about you. It so, so heated my mood. I like to go along the street and breath fresh air, especially when the weather is warm. Actually I do not want to go home. It is very boringly and alone at home. George, sometimes I do not mention it, but sometimes when I come home with good mood, I very much want to speak, to share ideas with anyone, to have an entertainment. But my apartment is empty, and I should be in full loneliness. And my good mood disappears. I simply sit in an armchair and I look at a window or I prepare for a meal, may be somebody will come to me? But I nave to eat all independently. And when the silence deafen me when I hear as my blood flows in my veins, I hear movement of my eyelashes, at that moment becomes unbearably and my heart compresses. I don't know how to struggle with it. I can listen to music or read a book. But in some moment I understand that I just deceive myself. In fact I want a beloved person to be near me, with whom I could spend evenings, to meet morning, to speak about yesterday and to dream about tomorrow day. I want to walk and to feel a strong man arm holds me. I don't want to cook meals only for myself. I want somebody to appreciate it. But George, enough about it. I should perform my work. I having not enough time. I shall wait for your letter tomorrow. I shall wait your pleasant words.

Yours faithfully Olga.

Letter 2

Hello my dear George! I am very glad to receive your letter today. It was so pleasant to see yours letter in inbox. Thank you George that you do not forget about me and write me constantly. It's so very pleasant. Thank you George that you are very attentive to me and also attentively read my letters. Thank you George for your attention. The attention and care - is very much high qualities. In our fast life we have no time for all this. But reading your letters, I see that you are not such as all others men... Your letters are filled with good feelings. I read it and I feel myself absolutely in another way. I do not know how explain it to you... I always wait your letters with impatience. It always brings to me so much delightful feelings. I am very glad that have met you George. Warm and tenderness - only thing I need. It is a problem of Russian men. Russian women makes everything for the man, for family. But she does not receive anything from him. Yes, the majority of women devoted to loved favourite man, I am sure, American women same. Only need to woman - some sensitive words and touch of his hands, and... understanding. This thing does not suffice in our life. George, really it is so difficult? I think, that not so difficult present your lady romantic evening and a supper with candles, but in Russia, as a rule, woman gives such gift, not the man... When woman carries heavy bags in the street, any man will not help her, he only will reject his sight and will go further. Why he should help woman? For this reason Russian woman never feels yourself HAPPY LADY in her heart. I don't think I am a beautiful lady, Russian men usually see in women sexual object. They believe, that the woman only should work, prepare and entertain the man when he wants it. Offend the woman - a usual thing for Russian men. Very much frequently meets, that the man beats his wife in house. Any respect, only in dream... Again dreams... George as you know, I like to prepare, but sometimes I would like to receive simple tenderness, love and attention. I do not want to offend all men, there are good men, but not enough. Very difficultly quickly determine, see a internal world of the man. Men very difficult essences. They try to hide their qualities. It is necessary to spend a lot of time... and then becomes known that this person not worthy your attention. I had relations with men of course. In my life were men. They were lovely, cheerful. When I started speak about serious intentions... They gradually leave my life. But only with one person I wanted to create family... This man deceived me. He slept with other women, even when he has suggested me to be his wife. I have found out about it later. It was seemed that he is very serious in his intentions... When he told me, that he could not constantly be with one woman. I could not suffer it anymore. My soul was wounded very much and broken. Since this moment I'm very seriously concern to relations with men. Majority of men which I met, still boys in their soul even in 35 years... I do not want to suffer all my life because of them! George I hope you understand everything I told you. Because I do not want any more come back to this theme... Now I would like to tell you about our beautiful city. As you already know I live in Nizhniy Novgorod. It is located on river Volga, it is the biggest river in Europe. Our city very ancient, it has been based in 1221 year! Our city has Kreml. It is the big stone wall which was constructed around of old city. This construction has been constructed for defense, for protection against enemies. It is very beautiful construction. But in other part of our city absolutely other, is located new city. It is very modern, expensive city. In our city about 1,361,500 thousand inhabitants. I think you understand it is the big city. The big city has the big movement, a fast rhythm of a life, a garland of fires, easy show-windows, high buildings, fountains, cinemas, parks, theatres and temptations. It is wonderful, of course I love it. But we have so good places a zone of rest, a beach, parks. They are very beautiful. If was not any criminal, this place could be as paradise. But alas, criminal in the big cities, and in small - the worse part of our life. Unfortunately the criminal in Russia is located in very high level. But I do not want to tell you about these sad things. I should finish my letter. I want to ask you George, what makes you happy? What was the best gift which you received from the woman? I am timid, but I have kissed you hotly.

With the best regard, sincerely yours Olga.
