Letter 1

Hello my dear Michael!

How are you today? What are the news there?

I have important news for us both which you want to know I suppose (smile)! Today I have visited the tourist company which is preparing my papers to meet you. I have asked them about it and they have told me that everything is done and I could get my papers in several days! Imagine it? I could not believe at once in this!!! Great news! I have thanked them but they have been curious about where exactly I want to travel. I have thought that it is not a big deal to tell them and tell that I want to travel to Seattle, WA (SEA). I have asked them to check the ticket prices on the flight on the 2th of June. They did and told me that the minimum price on these flights in Economy class is 1588 american dollars! It is very high! I thought that it would be less expensive and have told them it! They have agreed that it is so and want to help me. They have searched for some time and told me that they have an occasion for me. They have had a tourist a couple of days ago who wanted to fly to the same airport as I want but he refused the flight some time after they had reserved it. So they have the reserved ticket to the needed airport without the tourist himself. They have made a proposition to me - if I take this ticket they will make discount from its former price. If I take it the price will be 1288 american dollars! It includes the flight to Moscow also. This ticket is for the roundtrip flight with back flight in 2 weeks and it is nonrefundable. I have thought for some minutes and have made a deal with them. The company is well known in our town and work about 10 years. So I think that they will not mislead me. This is the flight information on which I reserved the ticket:
12:15 pm Depart Moscow (SVO)
Arrive Seattle (SEA) 10:03 pm Sat 2-Jun
Duration: 20hr 48mn
Delta Delta 31 / 1901
Connect in New York (JFK)
So I have spend all the money that I have on this ticket and have gone to the pawn shop to get the other part of money from my family relic - grand mom's brooch with emerald. I have heard many times during my life that it is very old and valuable jewelry. So I thought that they gave me for it about 1300 american dollars. And it would be over than enough for me to pay for my ticket! But unfortunately the owner of pawn shop have given me just 600 american dollars for the brooch!!! I have been shocked and have told him that it could not be so it is much more valuable jewelry! But didn't wan to hear it and have told me - so or nothing! I want to meet you Michael so much that I have agreed with him and took the money. I have returned back to the tourist company and pay this money for my ticket but I need to get more 688 American dollars to get my ticket. I have everything in right condition - all needed papers but I need this ticket to come to you Michael! I need this amount of money to pay till the 31th of May. I've asked my friends about helping me and they said that have not it at the present moment. I have asked my parents to help me but have no such amount of money. They live from the paycheck till the next one. My mom have told me about the grand mom's brooch but I have Told her that I have used it already! So I don't know what to do!!! If you love me Michael, if you trust me and if you want to see me soon, please send the money for this ticket as soon as possible! I will be sure in our meeting if I will have the ticket for a flight to you Michael! And I don't want that they'll sell the cheapest ticket to other people. I understand that it is a difficult decision for you, but we must trust each other! Any serious relations without trust is impossible, it will not have the future without trust! I don't want to be hypocritical! That's why I want to tell you following: I do not think that you would like to give your love and your heart to the woman who you don't trust, so as I am. It's a first trial for us! Many things depend on it, may be everything! We must trust each other! That's why I was the first of us who made the first step. Step to you Michael! I confused that money play a great role in a meeting of two people who love each other. So I need 688 American dollars for the ticket, because I have some money and I've counted all. I want to be with you Michael with all my heart and I do everything for it, you see Michael! So I need your help and we'll be together!!!! You must always remember that I love you and trust you! Maybe it's our future and I see that our future will be very wonderful! We'll be together very soon, I must buy the ticket and I will be yours and you will be mine!!!!!! I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH, PLEASE DON'T FORGET IT!!!!!! Of course if you don't want you can not to help me. It will be bad but not fatal. I will lose my money and this ticket. IT WILL BE TOO BAD... I say so because I am in despair and confusion. Now, when we are divided only with one step, I am afraid. I am afraid that you will not help, and all my diligence will be gone. I love you and I want to be with you Michael and the word of honor, your help is necessary for me. I have not calculated my forces. But together we are much stronger. It is much easier to go through difficulties and barriers together. I want to present you all my infinite love and fidelity. I did not want to ask you. I thought, that I can make it all by myself. The loneliness has made me strong. I have got used to live without a help, and to rely only on myself. I address to somebody for the help very seldom, but now I ask you to help me. I have made a step forward. I hope you will make a step towards to me too. I hope it has not offended you. I love you and I trust you Michael. I know, that you will not throw me now when there is only one step. Tell me Michael, can you help me? If you have an opportunity please help me. I wonder if it is possible to do. I've found out that you can send the money through the company which could transfer the money. I've asked about it in the tourist company and they have told me that reliable and fast company exists which make remittances all over the world and it's called Western union. I've taken an address book and found the address of it. It's not far from me. I've gone there and I've asked them about their service. They've said that a sender must go to the western union branch and give them following information: THE NAME AND LAST NAME OF A RECEIVER, A COUNTRY WHERE HE MAKES A TRANSFER and they give to sender TEN DIGITS CONFIRMATION NUMBER. THE RECEIVER MUST KNOW CONFIRMATION NUMBER FOR RECEIVING MONEY. They say that the branches of it must be everywhere all over the world. I have found out that we have a branch of western union here in my hometown. You can send me money using western union according following data:

Address: ALTAYKAPITALBANK STROITELEI STREET, 13
ZARINSK, RUSSIAN FEDERATION
For: MARINA PODLESNYUKH

I must tell them YOUR FULL NAME, FULL ADDRESS, EXACT AMOUNT AND CONFIRMATION NUMBER (Money Transfer Control Number) which will be given to you Michael! Please don't forget to send this information to me, ok? I think about a meaning of money, and I'm very sad if these papers can prevent people to meet each other. In most cases the money play a main role in the life but it's not right! I'm sure. And the quantity of money was, is and will not important to me. I have never aspired to the material enrichment and don't search specially for a rich man! I appreciate human qualities and relations Michael!!! I will wait for good news from you, I hope everything will be all right and we will be together soon. Every day I think about our meeting, and I think it's very real now, we must use this chance!

Yours truly Marina

P.S. I have almost forgotten that in the tourist company I have scanned my passport to send to You Michael.
