When two strangers are destined to meet, fate goes out of its way to make it happen just right. Or well, not exactly right, since the way these two met, is unconventional…For the time at least.
Lydia Armstrong moved from Los Angeles, California, destination, Moscow, Russia, miles away from her birth place, following a dream she'd harbored since she was younger, working at her father's apple farm, helping to plant orchids and watching as the campesinos* worked ardently under the hot, ever burning sun.
Her days were filled with hot days, hard work, and little to no time of being a young teenager. That is, until she got the chance, at 18, when she'd finally saved enough money to go to Russia.
It was a cold, cruel place, with barbarian strangers, dirty streets, and winter almost all year long, (At least to her knowledge, living in California and all.)
Her dream was to become a Free Lance Journalist, but she knew hedr father would never let her be one in his prescense, so, she moved to Russia…Where she met the man of her life. Nikolai Sokolov, a brute, frontier Russia with less morals than a hound dog.
He was working as an explorer, (Which was a nice word to call a spy, liar, and a runaway criminal.) The day they met, there befell a horrible, and very thick snowstorm, Lydia, being unaccustomed to the cold, and caught outside her rental room, soon fell victim to the freezing and abrupt drop in temperature.
She fainted, her body
starting to go into a hypodermic state, but guess who was there
to save her? Yes, Nikolai. He dragged her off the deserted
streets, (Makes you wonder what exactly he was doing out there in
that kind of weather…Eh?), brought her to his home that was
nearby, and warmed her up….From there, its all history.
