Letter(s) to Dermot (Ireland)

Letter 1

Hi, my dear, Nice to meet you here and I am very glad that you wrote me and really interesting in me. It is rarely you can meet such nice and interesting person and I hope that we could try to do all our best to know more about each other. I am not here for playing games and first of all I wish to tell you that I don't use any agencies and I know English quite good. I was studding it a lot at school, then in the University and also I was visiting English courses during two years. My full name is Ekaterina, but my family and close friends call me Katya or Kate. I am 27 years old and I was born on the 22nd of April in 1980 in Novomoskovsk town that is in Dnepropetrovsk region here in Ukraine. I have a high education and I am working right now as fitness trainer in sport club in my town. This is quite hard work, but I like it as it is my hobby too. I decided to be a sportsman because of my father who is also a sportsman too and he is a swimmer, but right now he is not working any more in sport because of his health. My mom is a teacher of Literature at school and she is still working. I have my younger sister, who is 25 years old and she is already married and has a wonderful son. She is living with her husband on the West of Ukraine and we see each other quite rarely. I have never been married and I don't have children. I am family oriented person and I was raised in a nice and educated family full of love and care. My parents are a good example of real love. They are together during 30 years and they still love each other. Looking at them I wish to have such family too. I was in relations before and as every one I also have my past that I wish to forget as a nightmare. I tried to begin a new life here but without any results. Some days ago, I found out that one of my friend is going married with a person from USA who she met in Internet and this was the push for me to try my luck here. I think that you have the same reason why you are here also. My dear, I think that from the very beginning we need to be first of all honest to each other and always tell the truth even if it is hurt. But I any way, I think that this is the main in relations to be honest and open to each other and to trust. Yes, I know that it will be difficult to trust a person who you have never seen in real life, but we need to try. I wish to know you, your life, your past, your plans for the future, what you like and dislike. Everything you wish to tell me I will be very glad to read. Please, tell me the story of your life in your next letter. I will be waiting for your reply. Kisses, Kate.

Letter 2

My dear Dermot, this is really nice to get your letter and to know more about you. I know that it is impossible to know person completely thought letters but letters are really a good start to new relations. Thank you so much for tell me about you and your life and I feel that we have similar ideas and goals in life and it will be interesting for me to continue our communication. What I can say more about me, my favorite color is red, it is the color of passion and just it is bright and it always improves my mood, I also like orange, it is the color of the sun and the color of fire, I just really consider them to be the best. As for cuisine, I am not sure that I give preference to some special one, because I just like to eat what is tasty, I like chocolate, fruits, my favorite ones are bananas, I like to drink juices, my favorite is the one from peaches. I am not fond of alcohol, but only in a very good company I can allow myself to drink a bit of red wine. I especially like the one that my mum makes from raspberries. But in fact, I am not a very choosy person, and for me it more important where and with whom to have dinner, then what to eat. Do you understand me? There are a lot of things that inspire me. First of all it is the relations with my friends and with the person, who is dear for me. If everything is great, I feel much energy and I am ready to "conquer the world". I am inspired, when I do something and I succeed in it. Then I feel that I can do even more, I feel great desire to work again and again and to achieve everything possible. I am inspired, when I have an opportunity to prove something either to surrounding people, or to myself. I am inspired, well. there are so many things that inspire me. And what about you??? There is one thing that disappoints me most of all, this is false friendship. I was disappointed several times in it. I mean, when you trust the person, when you don't want to have secrets from him or her, when you don't cancel anything, when you tell him everything you feel, when you tell him your sacred thoughts, when you tell him your mystery, when you just think that he is the dearest person for you, that he is the one who really understands you, that he is the one, who will always support and never betray, that he is just the best and you feel happy that you are so lucky to have him as your friend, and he tells you that he really is, he promises, that he will never tell anybody all that I have told him, he tells that I am really dear for him and so on. And then he turns to laugh at me together with his friends, some of whom I even don't know, when they laugh and say that I am so naive and stupid if I really thought that all that would remain a mystery, and they say: " Put off your pink glasses, otherwise you will be hurt very serious". We,, this is really the very thing, that makes me feel painful like nothing else, I hope you understand me. So, I am looking for a person, who will understand me, and who will value me as I am with all my "pink glasses", because I don't want to think that all of the people are bad, I don't want to live without romanticism, I don't want to believe into life without love. Were you disappointed in your life???? You know, I really feel a bit lonely sometimes, as there are moments, when it is extremely important to hear that you are dear for someone, that you are needed, that you are desired. I often dream, how I will be sitting with my beloved one day and he will be whispering me that I am the best, that he doesn't imagine his life without me, that I am his most tender flower, that I am his dearest kitten. You see, sometimes I really need these words, but I didn't meet a person, who liked me like a person, but not like just a girl for sex. Maybe I have vulgar appearance? What do you think about it? But I am not vulgar at all, quite on the contrary, and sometimes I suffer from it very much. Can you write me about your intentions concerning me, as for me it is really very important. Waiting for your letter very impatiently, Tender kisses, from Kate in Ukraine.

My darling, it really doesn't matter for me where person live. I am not looking for a tickets to live abroad. I am looking for my beloved person as I had so disappoints here and I am really tired of all these drunk pigs as our so called men here.
Waiting for your letter very impatiently,
Tender kisses, from Kate in Ukraine.

As for me, I think that I am kind, very communicative person, who love life and every minute of my life. Life is a really great thing. I love to meet with my friends, to go somewhere. I like to visit cinema. I don't like crowd places like disco, but sometimes I am very glad to go there with my friend, but it is really rarely. Do you like to dance??? Can you dance??? As for me I love to dance and when I was a school girl I was visiting dance school too. My mom always try to make me busy person. I wish to tell you more about me and my likes. I like music and I adore romantic collections, I adore French music, songs of Joe Dassen, and American and English pop music, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Shakira, Brian Adams.. And much more, and what about you??? My favorite food.mmmmmmmmmmm, well, it is fruit, much fruit!!!!!!! Especially strawberries with creams... though.. Fried chicken would also be nice :))))))))))))) I consider myself to be a reliable person and my friends and dear people can always rely on me.

If I don't like something, I tell this straight, and if I don't like the person, I try not to communicate with him or her. I like Nature and spend summer days somewhere outside hustle town. I like it when it is warm and sunny, because such weather can improve my mood and helps me to feel myself the happiest person, I love my life a lot then. But sometimes I have the very nostalgic and romantic mood, and I want to sit in front of the window and observe the drops of the rain cover the soil. and my window.Well, actually I like it any weather, but it depends where I am and who is next to me. And what about you?????? I will be glad to get your letter soon, With tender kisses, Your Katya

Letter 5

My darling Dermot, this is really a great pleasure to get your letter. I am very glad that you didn't forget about me and you are interesting to continue our communication that is really pleasant for me and I hope for you too. How are you, how is your life there so far from me???? How is your family???? I should say that I adore life!!! I like simple things. Simple things can make me happy. I think that people are the best what God created. I think that almost all people are good when they born- only bad conditions spoil them, make them what they are not. Yes, bad conditions can make terrible things with people- they can ruin people's character. It is hard nowadays to be strong enough to fight with these conditions. Sometimes it seems that it is almost impossible. But. Life is worth of this fighting!!!! I love life- everything even if it is hard to understand. I think that even some bad situations are created to make our life better. We make some necessary conclusions, which can help us in other situations.Our hardships, our tears, fears, broken hearts are our experience.May be it is cruel experience, still it helps us. I believe in it, strongly believe. Are you pessimistic or optimistic person????? How do you usually act in difficult situation???? Yesterday I spend nice evening with one of my best friend, this is really great to relax after hard working day. we were walking the streets, I get the great pleasure from walking, walking the forest or the city, and then came into our favorite place, it's small cozy cafe in the center of my town, it calls "tea and coffee", i like to spend their my free time with my friends. there are so many different sorts of tea and coffee and all them are so delicious. my favorite is the tea with bergamot, it's the only one place where you can test real coffee and real tea. i like this cafe, because there you forget about the time. when you step its threshold over, you appeared in other world, where there is not noise of city, where you can relax, listening to good, pleasant music and only admire the test of your favorite tea or coffee. i hope that one day we could attend it together. my favorite sort of tea, is tea with bergamot, I like coffee too. It remains me the taste of life. it has delicious and at the same time bitter taste. It is bitter, but you enjoy it. You receive pleasure while drinking it, you feel that you are unusual, it brings you the feeling of luxury, it is the sigh of good taste, the sign of beauty. Well, it is the taste of desire. And what about you, what do you like more tea or coffee. My dear Dermot and have you got some favorite places in your city, which you like to attend? I would like to wish you a great day today and I will be waiting for your reply very impatiently, Tender kisses, Your Katya.

Letter 6

My darling Dermot, such awful accident happened yesterday evening with my cousin's daughter. It is really awful and I hardly try not to cry. I didn't sleep all night and was with my cousin in the hospital. Yesterday in the evening everything was ok and nothing foretold such tragedy. My cousin and her husband came back from their work, took Sofia from the kindergarten and were at home. They were preparing to go to bed and as usual they heated water on gas, as there is not warm water in their flat. When the water was ready, Sofia's dad has taken a bucket with boiled water and bore in a bathroom. Suddenly Sofia has jumped out of the next room and has collided with him and the bucket with boiled water has poured out on her. She was screaming and her parents couldn't do anything to help her. They called immediately to the ambulance, when they came Sofia was without consciousness and breath really hard. They took her to the hospital, I came to the hospital also and saw my little Sofia in such awful contrition. Her mother was just crying and praying doctors to safe her life, her dad was so pale and couldn't say anything. I tried to calm down my cousin and to persuade her that everything will be ok and it seems to me that she didn't hear me. Later the doctor came to us to talk and told us that the situation is really dangerous. Sofia got burn 3ab type, this is last type of burn and he body had more then 50% of burn. He told us that they will try to do everything possible to safe her life and he needs our help as everything is very expansive and all the time Sofia needs new blood. He told us that we need to be ready to pay a lot of money for medicines as all that hospital could give her will be not enough. My darling, today I called to all our relatives and friends, I called to my work that they could help, because we need more then $2000 to collect for the first time. This is really huge money as you understand and I am trying to do everything to help them. Sofia is only 4 years old and she needs to live and we need to do everything possible for this. More over, we found good doctors in this field of medicine in another town and have contacted with them also and they told us that could help but we need to bring them here. And we also need money for it. We need to safe her life. I know that it will be impossible to help with all these huge money, but we need about $500 as soon as possible. To collect the money from our relatives will take some days and may be a week but we need to do everything fast. This is not a joke or something else. This is really dangerous and serious situation. I just ask you for help and I really hope that you could help. Any your help will be a great help for us. I was in the bank and found out that if you decide to help us you can use Western Union or Money Gram system to send the money. You will need my full name and address for this and I can receive them very fast.
Here is my info.
My full name is Ekaterina Shepel
My address is
Pochtovaya, st., 6/87
Novomoskovsk
Dnepropetrovsk region
51298
I really hope that you could help, even a little.
Your Kate

Letter 7

My darling Dermot, my sweetheart, we are really thankful that you could try to help us. The situation with Sofia still not improves and doctors are fighting for her life. She is in the reanimation and we can't be with her just to say in the hall and look at her through glass. Poor little girl, her body is all in bandage and many tubes are inside her. All the time with her is a nurse and doctors. This is so hard to see her, such small and such helpless. I try to be strong that to help me cousin and his husband. Sasha my cousin even didn't eat anything since tomorrow. I am with her quite all the time. Unfortunately I need to leave my work but knowing this my colleagues and boss understand completely and today they gave me $150 too. I am still in shock and I pray that everything will be ok. Thank you so much for everything from my family and from me personally. I love you, Your Kate.

Letter 8

Dear Dermot, thank you so much for your letter and unfortunately I couldn't get the money, I don't know the reason. I came to the bank and gave them the control number that you sent to me and your info and they told me that there isn't such transfer. My darling, I am sorry but I really don't understand. They told me that may be you are mistaken in a code or may be you sent the money to Russia because many people think that Ukraine and Russia is the same. Can you please check the info.
I am so thankful for your wish to help Sofia. Unfortunately I don't have any good news now. but the doctors gave us a hope and they are doing everything to safe her.
My darling, I will be waiting for your reply as soon as possible.
Kisses,
Kate.

My love, we all pray and do everything to help her My love, the situation with our little Sofia is really awful and critical, all her body is burnt. As I wrote you it is more then 50% if her body and also face. The main right now that she will be alive. She is between life and death and all we are pray for her. I am helping as much as I could for Sasha. I feel so sorry to see them in such awful condition and her dad, Sofia's dad all the time tells that this is his fault and all the time he is crying. You know I have never see any situation when man could cry but it is the one of them, when your child is dieing and you are really helpless. He is praying a lot and all the time he in in the church in the morning and asking God to give her life back.

Letter 10

My darling Dermot, I just came back from the bank, unfortunately there isn't any money for me and again the Money Transfer Control Number is wrong again. I really don't know why. May be a mistake again???? May be they sent to Russia again and just took more money from you and made a mistake again. My darling, I am really sad. We so relied upon your help and today we need to pay about $850 for the hospital and buy again medicines and I really don't know what to do.
As for the country, I wrote you in my first letter that I am from Ukraine not from Russia.
Frankly speaking I don't know what to think. Hope you will find a mistake.
Your Katya.
