My story. The end.

Her mouth was wide open.
The Sergeant asked me: “She told us you are her husband. Is it true?”
“Of course, she is my wife.” I was looking straight in his eyes. “Her name is Masha and she is pregnant.” As I said it I patted the girl’s stomach like a real husband, an owner of that stomach. The Sergeant sighed in disappointment and disappeared. “My name isn’t Masha and don”t even try to touch me!” - croaked the girl angrily looking at me. “If you don’t like your husband, you can go to these young and strong men and have a lot of fun.” I stood up and went out to the corridor. “Where are you going?” - she squeaked after me. ‘’Need fresh air.’’ After three hours which I spent marching down the corridor the soldiers and their boss left the train. They wished me love and family happiness. The girl quickly moved to her former place. No thanks to me. I hoped she would never find a husband, that nasty piece of work. At night she also left the train. The rest of the trip I was alone. Good. Back home from Irkutsk I was returning by plane, three or four stops plane. It took about twenty four hours and I hugged my wife.
I have never told this story to her. Wives are something special.
But now she had read it. And what did she say? “You ...! How on the Earth could you go on vocation without me!”

Her month was wide open.

Целый месяц?

The rest of the trip I was along.

Вместе с кем? Или это всё плоды автозамены? :)

Dear BenCostello. You are to kind to me. When I’m going to write something I have already almost the whole story in my head. Then, I write it in Russia or in English, and I do it very quickly. After that I check my mistakes. I mean, I don’t at first write it in Russia, my native language, and then translate into English. But I’m afraid my English, nevertheless, looks like “Russian” English. I think an American would write the same story using completely different style, a real American style of writing. That is my problem.

Well, I certainly think you do a fantastic job writing in English. There are some places where your phrasing might not be the most natural way that a native speaker might write, but don't worry about that! The more you practice, the better you get! Besides, your English is certainly far more natural than my very awkward Russian :)

This is awesome. I really like your story and must confess the end is even better than I expected. You did well. I'm trying to write my own story in English but despite I have necessary skills it's hard to write so I used to ask for help among Essay Writing Service Reviews and I'm also trying to improve my writing skills as well. Hope to share my own story here as soon as possible. If some one interested wich one service looks as the best for me https://topessayguiders.com/
