    Dear Margaret, I (first/meet) Chiyo, a Japanese girl, about six months ago. It (be) at a party and she (give) me a lift home in her car. I (really/like) her, but I (be) so nervous that I couldn't think of anything to say. The next day, I (ring) her to ask her out, but when she (pick up) the phone, I (get) scared and (say) something stupid about leaving my umbrella in her car instead. Since that time, I (meet) her three or four times, always with a group of friends, but I (always/be) too shy to say anything. Now I (just/find) out that she (go) back to Japan. One of her friends told me - she (leave) on Tuesday. Now that she (go) I (really/start) missing her. Every day I sit down and try to write a letter to tell Chiyo how I feel about her, but every time I start I cannot find the right words. Can you help me ? Yours, Vincent
