Gu Nianzhi looked at Huo Shaoheng with tearful eyes . She thought that this was indeed a flight piloted by the fighting nation–it was far more nerve wracking than the other aircraft she had been on!
The takeoff and landing were so “exciting!”
It felt like someone was drilling a hole with an electric drill in her ears and the pain made her unable to think .
Huo Shaoheng’s voice was actually very loud, but it sounded like it was coming from a distant place in her ears and only left a little bit of empty reverberation .
Her mind was occupied by the sound of the rumbling airplane engines .
Huo Shaoheng put Gu Nianzhi’s upper body in his arms and stroked her back until the plane landed fiercely with a bang, then slid quickly on the airport runway before finally releasing her .
Gu Nianzhi was so uncomfortable that her face was completely devoid of color .
After the airplane stopped, the two of them sat for a while before unbuckling their seat belts and standing up .
They dragged their suitcases out of the plane . When they were about to go to the customs, the co-pilot who was actually second-in-command the KGB named Vladimir, came up to them .
“Major General Huo, we have an important person who wants to see you . Please come with me . ”
Huo Shaoheng was aware that these people already knew his identity, so he did not refuse the offer . He took Gu Nianzhi’s hand and said, “Okay, she will come with me, is that ok with you?”
“But he didn’t ask to see her . ” Vladimir gently explained, “She can wait outside the door when you meet him . ”
Gu Nianzhi’s expression was subtle, “…”
Huo Shaoheng raised his eyebrows,and instantly understood that Li Dexi had kept the news of Gu Nianzhi even until his death . It appeared that his surviving personnel didn’t seem to know about Gu Nianzhi .
So these KGB agents obviously didn’t know the importance of Gu Nianzhi to Li Dexi . .
Of course, this is fine too . That meant he didn’t need to waste his time dealing with the KGB .
Huo Shaoheng smiled and gave a mild reply, “That’s ok . She has no sense of direction, so now I don’t worry about going to the barracks alone . ”
Gu Nianzhi, “???”
Who has no sense of direction? Who has no sense of direction? Who has no sense of direction?
Does he want to go outside and compare their sense of direction?
However, she also knew she had to cooperate with Huo Shaoheng at this time . Her expression was appropriately blank and confused .
He just saw a shrewd look on this little girl’s face, how could she instantly put on an “idiotic” smile?
He didn’t understand these Huaxia people either .
Vladimir smiled happily, “Please come with me . ”
Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi boarded an extremely inconspicuous car sent by the KGB and drove towards the city .
Gu Nianzhi was visiting Moscow for the first time .
On the entire way, she tilted his head to look at the scenery outside the car .
Moscow has been the capital of Russia since the time of Tsarist Russia . It had a history of over 800 years and was a famous historical city on the Blue Planet .
After leaving the airport, there were large swathes of birch forests . The sky soared with white clouds floating in the distance, the forests stretched out for as far as the eye could see . The colors overlapped from far to near and resembled like an oil painting .
The quiet Moscow River ran through the entire city and accompanied them all the way .
In the urban area, there are more buildings with bright colors and ethnic characteristics, but there were also very modern skyscrapers .
The entire city of Moscow seemed to be torn in two–half was still immersed in the glory of the past, while the other half wanted to abandon the past and diligently work towards the future . Yet there was a feeling of regret as it constantly looked back at the glory of the past .
Gu Nianzhi sighed continuously, so she simply took out her mobile phone and kept taking pictures of the scenery outside .
It wasn’t until the Kremlin and Red Square suddenly appeared on her camera when Gu Nianzhi exclaimed, “That’s the famous Red Square!”
Since she was raised by Huo Shaoheng, Gu Nianzhi was intimately familiar with the history of World War II .
The Soviet strongman Stalin once held a grand military parade here . After the parade ended, the group of strong young men in their prime years who had never been to the battlefield or even received much military training, sang songs as they rushed from the Red Square to the battlefield .
The former Soviet Union made great sacrifices and contributions for the victory of World War II .
Gu Nianzhi snickered and said, “The defense of Stalingrad was the real major turning point in the European battlefront! The former Soviet Union suffered more than one million casualties, but unfortunately Europe and the United States do not consider that the defense of Stalingrad was a major turning point in the European battlefront . Instead, they claim that ‘the great escape,’ –Battle of Dunkirk was the turning point in the European battlefront… That’s the biggest joke in the world!”
Gu Nianzhi’s words successfully echoed Vladimir’s sentiments about a common enemy .
He was talking to Huo Shaoheng in a low voice, but was immediately angered when he heard Gu Nianzhi mentioning this, “These little brats! They treat us like we are dead!”
Gu Nianzhi curled her lips: “…The former Soviet Union had already died . ”
Huo Shaoheng replied in a solemn voice, “When your country disappears, your history will be tampered with without hesitation . Mr . Vladimir, I am very sorry for what happened to your people . ”
Their merits were obliterated, the truth was buried, they were forced to take the blame for everything, but none of their achievements were ever mentioned .
This was the relative .
While their own citizen wept, other nations were already rejoicing .
What is so terrifying about death, when it merely means returning one’s body to the mountains . (Quoted from Tao Yuanming’s “Elegy”)
Vladimir had a very good impression of Huo Shaoheng to begin with, but he felt even more in tune with him now as he listened to him say this . N
He tapped one hand on his knee and hummed a very beautiful melody .
“Stillness in the grove
Not a rustling sound
Softly shines the moon clear and bright
Dear, if you could know
How I treasure so
This most beautiful Moscow Night
Lazily the brook like a silvery stream
Ripples in the light of the moon
And a song afar fades as in a dream
In this night that will end too soon
Yes a song afar fades as in a dream
In this night that will end too soon
Dearest, why so sad, why the downcast eyes
And your lovely head bent so low
Oh, I mustn’t speak, though I’d love to say
That you’ve stolen my heart away
Promise me my love, as the dawn appears
And the darkness turns into light
That you’ll cherish dear, through the passing years
This most beautiful Moscow Night
Say you’ll cherish dear through the passing years
This most beautiful Moscow Night”
“I can sing this song too!” Gu Nianzhi’s eyes lit up and hummed along to Vladimir .
The two voices harmonized perfectly, so even the driver couldn’t help but join at the chorus .
Huo Shaoheng, “…”
Gu Nianzhi succeeded in adding excitement to the atmosphere and instantly got closer to Vladmir . She also exchanged social media accounts with the driver and Vladimir .
She casually mentioned, “It’d be nice if you have Awepay, I use that app more . ”
The other men replied immediately, “Then add me as a friend . ”
Gu Nianzhi was shocked to learn that they actually used Awepay .
The three of them took out their phones and scanned the QR codes to add each other as friends . Gu Nianzhi immediately sent an emoji and added a red envelope .
“Hahahaha, I got a red envelope! I got a red envelope!” Vladimir happily looked at the red envelope worth “6 . 66” and smiled .
“What about me? How about me?” The middle-aged driver turned around and asked Gu Nianzhi anxiously, “How much will my red envelopes be?”
Huo Shaoheng couldn’t help but say to the driver who kept turning around to look at them, “…Please stay focussed on the road . The red envelope is valid for 24 hours, you don’t need to open it immediately . ”
Gu Nianzhi, “…”
When they got out of the car in front of the Kremlin, the KGB driver and Vladimir, the second-in-command of the KGB regretted not meeting Gu Nianzhi earlier so that they could swear her as a sister from different parents .
The three “brothers and sisters” smiled as they stood on the Red Square with their backs to the magnificent and colorful Kremlin to take a group photo .
Among the two sturdy “human bears,” stood a fairy-like, beautiful girl . They posed together with victory signs and yelled, “Cheers . ” This was a perfect interpretation of “Beauty and the Beast” .
Huo Shaoheng took out his phone and mindlessly took photos of the three of them . He felt both sadness, as well as indescribable pride in his heart .
His field staff had spent so long in Moscow, but they were unable to find the online social accounts of Vladimir, the second-in-command of the KGB . Yet it was so easily obtained by Gu Nianzhi…
