Letter 1

Hello my dearest John !

Today in the morning I have come to travel agency where to me informed good news. 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 Portland on the 6 of June, and how much it would cost.
They said that the ticket would cost $1300 USD. 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 the 8 of June. The ticket costs $1080 USD. 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 advanced 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 the mif 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 John 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 $368 USD. But it was too much for me, because I had only $240. I asked to wait for me during 11 hours. I went out of the room. Masha met me at the door. I told her everything. She understood everything and advised me to pawn our treasures to a pawnshop. John , it was very difficult for me to agree to do it. I did not want to burden Masha. But at the same time I want to meet you, John very much. We pawned the treasures, I got $128 USD and I paid the part of the ticket price $368 USD. 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 muself. 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 $712 USD. I must pay it till the 6 of June. Otherwise I will loose the money I have paid and i will loose the chace 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. It would solve all the problems. 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 thay 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 long time. I think it's because of the financial crisis and terrorist acts in in Ukraine, sanctions USA against Russia..Probably 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 voun. 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 horable if I ask you to help me. Of course I realize that be you have no feelings to me and be you're not interested in our meeting. I understand that the sum of money is too big. I know itand 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. $360 USD which I have paid for the visa, for consular gathering 131 usd and for State Taxes 90 usd, for the ticket to Moscow and back 220 usd, for hotel in the city of Moscow 110 usd, and $368 USD for 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 6 of June. 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 cellcom, 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 satisfaction you or 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.

Letter 3

Hello John !!!

How - you today? I hope, that all - is good. I also am happy today because I have the letter from you. I have written to me! I very happy. Now I work, and I write the letter to you. Last time I have not had time to add to you the letter. I hope this time to me will not prevent to make it. And so. I did not write to you about my family.
But I think that you should know about it, and now I am going to make it. I have been given birth also dews to Izhevsk. Now I live here. I do not make remember my father because he did not live with us. I was grown only by my mother. We were the best friends on the ground, we were very much the friend close to the friend. But my mum had a cancer of a stomach, and she has died in 2007. Year was horrable for me. I, though I was the unique person on the whole planet. It was awful and incredible. I could not understand it for long time. I was empty. It is difficult to imafine for ideas in my head and my feelings. 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 than, several years I started to understand last, that she felt qulity 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, to feec me to buy me of a dress for this reason I do not carry bosh. We lived only her tiny earnings. But we never complained of our life - we have solved all problems together. But if we were happy, that we tried to tell about our success to our neighbours. My mum always spoke me, that I should marry the person which I shall love. She adviced I to besure in the person before movement to marry him. I think the same. I shall remember the moment during long time. I shall never forget mine eyes of mother when my leg has been broken also I couldn " t, go. Then we were far from our house up to, collects berries. Only my mum and I.
But she has taken me on her hands and bore mine to our house. You can imagine it? To me there were 12 years when my mum was carry of me duringan hour. I have understood, that it was difficult to her, but she did not want to leave me alone in a wood to go in the house, to ask whom - that the help. She was afraid, that something awful happen with me in a wood. I hope which you understand, that memory of my mum road for me. After death of my mum I feel very much lonly because I have no neither sisters, nor brothers. To be more exact, I have no any relatives. But I have friends. They Elena and Masha. They are remarkable girls. We can name us sisters because we are friends more than 15 years, and we help each other. I - confident absolotely, that if I ask Elena, Masha to help me they will never refuse. Our attitudes are very strong, Time has checked up them. One year ago Elena married, and her husband has taken her to his native city. We write letters each other very much frequently, but it is a pity, that we cannot see the most part the friend from the friend. But Elena has arrived to us in the spring. I taljed very much the whole week, but it was too little, we could not tell each other all events. Now Masha and I wait for Elena the following arrival. And you, make you hawer such friends?
Also In the summer for entertainment I work in my small garden. I raise flowers. 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 favourite flowers, has raised also an orchid. The hope you can sometime see it. It is a pity, I can write more. 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. I think, that you are tolerant (smile).

Sincerely yours Lyubov.
