I have long been waiting for this. While I did not turn to call him “you” and by name. It is not that we have a huge age difference, her I didn’t feel. Just after all, originally Evstigneev was my teacher and I his student. It is difficult to adjust to the new way. But seeing as I choose my words, Evstigneev is stopped: “Honey, I’m simple and homely, like boots”. And from that moment he became my Zhenya”.

In a new way.” Mashunya, of course, was stunned when he saw me, but there were no reviews, recalls Zybina. I’m awfully embarrassed, he smiled a bit awkward. Thus it seemed to me, Mary took me in right away, I’m a peaceful man, friendly, try with no one to interfere.
