yulya decided that i must keep her.i paid for her studies, i gave her a job but to no avail.she is a lazy girl. i don't have any feelings towards her. why do you want to find her, then? this is a good question! politics!i want to be elected to the local council. can you imagine an article thatsays that oleg togoyev's daughter was found, say, in a drug brothel... was she taking drugs? of course not. but whatdifference does it make?
she could have done anything.this is all information about her. and one more thing... when you find her don'tcommunicate with her. she will understandthat i'm looking for her and run away... just to make me mad. sakharova yulya. your wages. i have another question. didsomebody try to find her before us? maybe your own security service?
my security servicehas other things to do. this is why i turned to you. coffee...toasts... the newspapers... damn it, the orange jam!damn it! the jam! oh! i beg your pardon!i'm so sorry! hello. valya? hello. i thought you were having a walk.the doctor prescribed you to. i'll drink some coffee and go out.

it's rather complicated. togoyev's daughterdisappeared six weeks ago. togoyev didn't worry duringall this time and then suddenly he turned to us. why would hedo that? serega, pay attention. the elections... serezha, the elections are not a war.they don't happen without warning. people prepare for them for a year. yes, something is wrong here. it is. he should have eitherhired us a month ago or...
...or somebody had beenlooked for a girl before us and failed to find her. it might be so. he has his ownsecurity service, by the way. it might have failed. did you mean that? maybe. we'll sort it out. yes, this story is not simple. what is it? serezha, i beg you. please buy some food for yourdog otherwise it'll eat us soon. a beast... all right. whatdo we know about togoyeva?
she is togoyev's daughter. after thedivorce she got her mother's surname â€” sakharova yulya olegovna, 21.she used to live with her mother, sakharova tatyana stanislavvna, upto the age of 20, in yuryev-polskiy. yuryev-polskiy? where is it? i think it's in the vladimir region. do you think so or..?all right, i'll check it myself. after her mother's deathshe moved to her father. she studied at the academyof finances for a year. six weeks ago she left home...
go on. why are you keeping silence? this is all. what do you mean â€” all? give it to me. give me the file!yes, we don't have much information. i so understand that you don'twant to go to yuryev-polskiy, right? oh, babkin! all right, you have moscow. you'll go to that academywhere yulya used to study and talk to her girlfriends.i don't need to teach you what to do. give me the map.

i'd easily find a good husband.what about you? did you always want to become a writer? no. never. however ialways liked reading. after gradating from the philologicaldepartment of the university i was hired by a magazine. i wasediting other people's articles. i used to do it every single day.then i started to write a book. passions, murders, intrigues...it was so unlike my routine life. i see. you wanted to depict yourown imaginary life, didn't you? you know, my life did change.i started to live like a heroine
of my books. a new photographcame to work for us. he was a womanizer. i fell for him.or no, i made him fall for me. this is what he said â€”"you made me fall for you". we went to italy. it was happiness. just sheer happiness... sakharova didn't have any friends.this is all i can tell you. come on! if you want to know,people like your sakharova should not be allowed tocommunicate with people! she should have beenisolated in her childhood!
anya, stop it! you shouldn't have remindedme of that sakharova! you know, i'm very gladthat she disappeared! i hope she is never found! anya, calm down! get off me! i apologize for her. this isbecause of that story with vadim. what story do you mean? it's not important.try talking to nika tserkovnikova.

i was writing much during that time.i was writing all the time, in fact. then a moment came when irealized that i didn't need a man or even my mum.i felt such happiness... how can you be happyif you aren't writing? i just don't write. i'm sorry, martha rudolfovna. i must have bothered you.i came to take an interview and i told you about my life instead.well... where did we stop? if you want to go on doingsilly things like this interview
