My dearest love Daniel.
Sweetheart, first of all I ask you, that you do not go to the airport today evening. Sweetheart, I am still in
Moscow and I don't know where to start to explain all to you. Daniel, I do not know, how to you to tell it, because I am very afraid of your anger.
I very much hope that you receive my letter before you go to airport. My love, I will tell to you everything what happened, I am very stressed and
so tired now, perhaps it will be difficult to find words. Sweetheart, I went to my flight this morning. I have passed passport control
and after that I passed the Customs control, where everything was good. I showed them that I have needed amount and they passed me.
I thought that after Customs, I can go directly to my plane. But I had to go through baggage checking also. My lovely, when they looked through my
things, the officer asked me to stop and wait few minutes. Then two officers of police came to me and asked to follow them in a special room for
deeper checking of my baggage. Daniel, I did not understand why they asked me to make it but they were police officers and I had to follow them.
As soon as we have came into a special room, one of the officers searched my bag and found church icon " Mother of God " and asked to explain
how become that icon in my bag. My love, my grandma gave this icon to me when I visited her last time. This icon is our family value and consequently
she has decided to give it to me and you, so this icon was our family value, your and mine, it would secure our love, our family!
I have explained to officers all this but after that they placed me in the special chamber and they said that this icon is antiques, historical value
and it is not a subject to export from territory of Russia. Sweetheart, at first I did not understand what happened and I asked them to let me go to my
flight! But they said it is a very serious crime and they can not let me go. I once again explained them all situation, but they said to me that I should
wait for the inspector who work with such crimes. Daniel, I also asked them to me an opportunity to write one letter to you or make one call, so you
know about situation. Because I did not realize how long I will be staying there! But they did not listen to me. I cried also very much because I was so
disappointed! My love, in couple hours they met inspector and during several hours I was in special ward. I explained this situation many times, and each
time I asked, they have give me an opportunity to write to you one letter. But the inspector has said it is impossible during the interrogation. I was
accused in illegal export of antiques, but many times I explained to them all situation. I said them that they can leave this icon, but if only they
allow me to arrive to you by next flight! I asked him, what I can make. He said, that in according with law, I should pay the penalty and they will not
get me arrested. They will make investigation and then court will resolve this situation. And I should pay penalty to be able to travel abroad,
this penalty will be a kind of pledge. It means that when court will not find any crime in my actions then this pledge will be returned to me.
Daniel, amount of penalty was 1680 dollars. Daniel, I has paid it from amount that you sent me. And also everything that I had with me, for expenses and food.
I paid all what I had, now I have money only to pay internet-cafe few times. I had to pay this penalty, because I had no other exit! If I have not paid this
penalty, then they would not let me to travel outside of Russia and I could not arrive to you. My love, please, excuse me and understand, that I had no other exit!!
I very much cried, before I begun to write this letter to you, because I do not know how to tell you about it. One hour ago, I was released from the ward and I with
tears on eyes at once I went to internet-cafe to write to you. Daniel, I am so upset! I had huge stress, that I never had in my life! I do not worry for myself, I worry
for you, my dear. My love, I still can exchange my ticket for Friday morning, because it was not my fault that I missed this flight and police will confirm it.
It means that I can get next flight for free. But you understand, that is necessary to me again to have 1560 dollars again to pass the Customs. Lovely, I have no money
now at all! My dear love, please, only understand me and do not leave me in this situation! I very much ask you about it! I very much want to be together with you.
I did not expect this, I am in lost right now... It is my fault, I have tears in my eyes right now, because I very much worry and nervous. My love please understand me.
Lovely, please, send to me this amount as soon as possible, I will change my ticket for Friday and I will arrive to you! Daniel, it will not be any obstacles, on my way
to you, believe me. My baggage is checked many times, I do not bring any forbidden with me anymore. I will forgot this horror in your strong arms only.
I very much want to be with you, Daniel. I need you so strongly! I feel very tired, broken right now. I need to sleep.
only your baby Nataliya.
