Letter 7

Hello my dear friend Brian. How are you???
I very much waited for the moment to read your letter. I am very glad that you have written to me and it has given to me the big smile on the person. From first our day acquaintance I represented our meeting with you, but last night much after I have written to you the letter and I many reflections about you have gone home had and that what will be our first meeting and I want to share with you my reflections and I hope that it will be interesting to you.
Our meeting occured so. As always I after work went in the Internet of cafe to write to my friend and much thought what to tell to you about me as I like and I want to tell to all of you as I see that it is possible to trust in you completely and I will be interesting about what I shall tell to you. I have read your letter and have written the answer to you and when I was going to leave from the Internet of cafe behind on mine a shoulder whose man's hand has lain, all over again I have thought that it is the serving Internet-cafe wants to tell that my time of stay already has left,but when I have turned back it there were you and I could not tell words but only stood and was silent as my eyes could not believe that you are near to me. It was simply incredible also we so stood long time, looking against each other and without a word. After that I all the same have told to you Hello and you too have answered me and then we have gone to walk on night city and talk about all that could not to write in our letters. We spoke much, if that is fairly now I at all I do not remember what, but it was very good me with you and is cheerful. You were very polite and very kind. I very well it have remembered also to me it very much it was pleasant.
After that you carried out me up to a house and has told to me that to you is time to go and have told to me in a trace when I already left to myself home that we still very soon shall meet.
These words were very much remembered also I hope that so really and will be.
After all it I want to know more and more and more about you and now letters for me to you became something big in my life and I really very much like to write you.
I hope that you liked my reflections about our meeting and I shall think of that for a long time how and when we shall meet with you.
The French meat this meat baked in an oven with a potato, vegetables, cheese and mayonnaise.
My mother very pleased, that I have found very good friend. She liked to tell me they are friends the best that we can find after love. But sometimes I think what more important love or friendship.
I think, that really like, arrive from very close friendship.
Now I should go. The hope to see your letter is very fast!
Wish you good day!
Your friend Alisa.

Letter 8

Hi Brian!
Very much happy to get a letter from you. You know I start catch my mind on that I miss your letters. Day by day I think if you'll write me a letter or not. If not, I will feel upset. I want to talk to you today about solitude, particularly one of soul and body. Solitude is a terrible thing. As for me, being a lonely person I have no desire for opening my eyes in mornings. I don't need a fake of love. I need real love. Solitude concerns not only soul when one gets nobody to confide to, when nobody takes care of your life, your health, your mood, when one has all the days gone by in the same way. Only troubles. Such a person knows nothing but his soul, his senses and his body. My body suffers from solitude as well. It is deprived of making love with a desired man. From your letters I understand I draw to conclusion you are a deeply talented person. You are gifted. You come about to be in a situation of not being understood. Such people like you and me feel the wall of estrangement stronger and more painful. Owing to your intellect you are higher than your environment. You as well as I have some difficulty to find people of our mind for communication and mutual understanding. Even people the closest to us pretty often can't have our ideas. They try to impose their life style. But you are queer. You aren't like everyone. This doesn't always get to people's mind. You are a keen personality and make me surprised every time. You are able to occupy your head with clever thoughts. You have got nice passions filling your free time. A lonely person is a very thoughtful person. Solitude is followed by consideration. This is the lonely individual who may give an objective judgement of life values. Man rules all his life. Perhaps you draw a sad sense after reading of solitude? Every person is a brilliant star if he has one he shines for. Waiting for your answer.
Kiss you
Your Alisa

Letter 9

Hello my Love Brian!!!
I am so glad to hear from you. I very much like to receive your letters and to speak with you. It makes me very sad if I do not see the letter from you. I just don't want to lose you. My heart belongs to you and beats your name every minute of the day. I have never been able to talk to a man the way I talk to you and it fills me with joy.
I used to feel empty, lonely, and left out because I didn't have anyone to share my thoughts and feelings with. Then I met you and became close friends and was able to express all my feelings about you and all the empty and lonely feelings left me. I am so blessed to have such a courageous the man who cares about me the way you do and who tells me she has no greater friend than me. That is very important for me to hear. I believe the bond we have together grows stronger every day and the words we speak to each other have much more meaning and become more personal and intimate with each letter we write. I love the direction our relationship is going and I want you to know that you are the most important person in my life. I see a very bright future for the two of us, full of sharing, laughing, playing, learning, growing, and most importantly, love. It's my Dream...
I do not think at all of you as you have described.
I wished to tell about you another instead of that that you have described to me.
I very much regret in this occasion.
Two Hearts United As One
Your Alisa.

Letter 12

Hello my love Brian!!
I`m so miss you all time!! Hope you are well. I`m ok.
I`m thinking of you every minute and I always think that may be you are thinking of me this time too. It`s so exciting for me to know that on the other side of Earth among millions of people there is man who are thinking of me and love me. Sometime I think that may be in our thoughts we can be together. But it makes me want to be with you more and more. I believe that this day will come!!! You know I always try to believe in the best! I think that to dream it`s very good but it`s not enough. We should do something to come true our dreams.
I want to tell you one story which I read in one book.
It happened in one small town, may be in America. One woman with her two sons lived in small house. This woman had a sick sister. One day the woman with her sons went to come to see her. It was the day before the Christmas Eve. Mum with her boys spend much time with sick woman. But when they came back home they saw that the robbers were in their house and took many things and even Christmas presents. The woman was very upset and she sit near the house and cried.
This time near her house were coming two policeman. They asked her what had happen. She told them about everything and they wrote about everything what happened and said to her that they tried to find the robbers. Then they went away. But policeman decided that this poor family would not celebrate Christmas and that little boys would not get the presents. And they decided to help them and bought some presents for them.
When they came to the shop they began to choose different things, toys and sweetness.
When policemen began to pay for it they told about this story to the seller. And the seller said that the policemen were very kind persons and said that the part of costs of this presents he would pay himself. After it he called his friend who was a journalist and told him this story, the journalist wanted to write about these policemen in the newspaper. And in some time every body know about these kind people. And in Tv and on the radio were said about this poor woman and such magnanimous policemen. But this family didn`t know about it because they even didn`t have a TV. But after that case people were brining a lot of presents for her and her sons. And one man even presented them a new house.
The end.
This wonderful story always show me that there are many kind person and the kindness wins evil.
I hope you like it too.
May be you`ll ask why I wrote it to you. Sometimes i`m afraid that my dreams to be with you are not real and I`m afraid to lose you. I know that everything can depend only from us, but I`m not calm until I`m not with you. And this story can belive me that everything will be ok!
My love I will not send you such photo which you ask from me. I really seriously concern arrival to you!!!
You want that I thus have proved you my love but if you so strongly love me and you trust me that would not ask such photo. I very much hope that you will understand me.
I the decent girl also will not send you such photo.
If your trust is expressed in that that I should you prove something then I think that at us can not develop further relations. I wish to arrive to you and I completely try to trust you and I do not ask to prove me your honesty somehow!!! I so love you! And I will wait for this moment when you`ll able to help me to come to you! I don`t want to hurry you but I want that you know that everyday without you is very hard, and all I want it`s just to be with you!!! You are so important for me!
You became the part of my life and It`s not easy to live when you are s far from me.
I need to go now! I`ll wait for your answer!!
With love your Alisa.
