Kamchatka's Reprieve - Your Choice of Endings

Ending A

Dear Igor,

Thank you for your latest letter. I can see that you and Helen are having a wonderful time together. Last night we were invited back to the logging camp for an evening of music and dancing, and I met this very handsome man called Hank, who lives in Minneapolis. He sleeps in a rough log cabin, where things fall down on you from the timbers during the night - that was quite a surprise ! He's single, and he says that he'll probably take an extended holiday in Hawai'i soon, because of the shut-down. He's invited me to join him on his yacht. Do you think I should accept ?
