Gu Nianzhi refused to accept the marriage contract because Huo Shaoheng had forced her to sign the marriage certificate . She had fantasized countless times that if Huo Shaoheng proposed to her again, she would make him suffer .
How could she immediately agree to marry him?
She had to reject him at least three times!
However, she didn’t expect Huo Shaoheng to propose to her at such a solemn, dignified, sacred, and beautiful place .
Surrounded by tall red walls and trees, the dark red tomb of the unknown warrior stood there quietly .
On the grassy lawn, a squirrel scurried over there with a pine cone in its arms . It stood on the lawn as it looked at them curiously .
There were soldiers standing guard in the glass booths on both sides of the tomb of the unknown warrior .
But at that time, it seemed like the soldiers had just switched shifts for their lunch break, so there was no one there except for the two of them .
Only the blue sky, the white clouds, the sunlight, the green trees, and a little squirrel accompanied them .
Gu Nianzhi could not brig herself to reject Huo Shaoheng like this, nor could she reject his deep love .
He loved her . Finally, just as she loved him, they had become the source of each other’s faith and dependency .
Gu Nianzhi reflexively said “I do” , but she did not regret saying so .
His eyes slightly moist, Huo Shaoheng looked up at the girl he loved .
He knew that he had let her down . There were many times when he couldn’t stand by her side like an ordinary man could .
To be married to a soldier, she would have to sacrifice much more than an ordinary military soldier’s wife, especially a soldier on the front linee .
Fortunately, she had grown up with him . She understood everything about him and the price she would have to pay . Besides, she was someone who had the ability to stand shoulder to shoulder with him . She was not fragile girl waiting to be protected by him .
Gu Nianzhi did not hesitate at all . The words “I do” that came out of her mouth were authentic reflections of her heart’s desires .
Gu Nianzhi also gazed at Huo Shaoheng . She saw rare affection in his deep, dark eyes . She stared at his straight nose, which even cast a shadow under the sunlight . She gazed at his strong chiseled jaw, which had perfect contours, then she gazed at his seductive lips, which seemed especially kissable . .
Huo Shaoheng opened the lid of the ring box in his hand .
It was like a bright moon had suddenly appeared under the setting sun . Even the dazzling sunlight could not overshine the silvery glow of the Moon!
In the top-quality Mahogany ring box, there was a diamond ring lying in there quietly . The diamond was large and eye-catching . Its entire body was crystal clear, but under the sunlight, the reflected light was dazzling but not too glaring . Like the fog under the moonlight, the light inside was even gentler, and it appeared especially breathtaking .
Gu Nianzhi was mesmerized by the sight .
How could such a beautiful diamond exist? Although it appeared expensive at first glance, it wasn’t ostentatious at all .
“This is the classic Van Cleef u0026 Arpels’ boundless inlay . ” Gu Nianzhi’s eyes gleamed . Like Ma Qiqi, she had studied the inlay of the diamond ring in detail before . .
Huo Shaoheng chuckled, then took out the diamond ring from the box and gave it to Gu Nianzhi to wear on her left middle finger .
The size of the ring was just right . Gu Nianzhi wore it on her smooth and straight finger . As the saying went, if it was a little loose, it would be too loose . If it was a little tight, it would be too tight . It was just right for her to wear it like this .
However, the diamond was too big . It looked a little out of place on her hand . It was truly the size of a quail’s egg .
People would usually say that a diamond ring was as big as a “pigeon’s egg” , but it was actually an exaggeration . It was a visual illusion from many small diamonds gathered together .
On the other hand, Gu Nianzhi’s diamond ring was a whole diamond without any impurities . It was the size of a quail egg .
It was literally a quail egg .
Huo Shaoheng stood up and caressed Gu Nianzhi’s finger . He smiled softly and said, “This diamond was an heirloom my grandmother left me when she passed away . She said she wanted to see this diamond set on the ring as a gift to my fiancée . ”
Gu Nianzhi blushed and said, “Since it was left by your grandmother, let’s keep it in the safe as a souvenir . Isn’t it too ostentatious to make it into a ring?”
It was so big that she felt too self-conscious to wear it in public . .
“The engagement ring is for this . When we have our wedding in the future, I’ll give you a wedding ring that you can wear every day . ” Huo Shaoheng comforted her in a low voice, “This diamond belongs to you . I’ve already written to the International Diamond Association to change the name of this diamond to ‘Cereus Gu’ . From now on, it’s yours . ”
Gu Nianzhi was surprised . “… You actually want to change its name? Could it be that this diamond used to have a name? ”
Upon seeing the curiousity in Gu Nianzhi’s eyes, Huo Shaoheng thought about it and decided to tell her the truth .
” … This diamond was originally called the Grand Duke Joseph’s diamond . It weighs 76 carats . ”
Gu Nianzhi: ” ! ! ! ”
“It’s the largest and most perfect diamond in the world . ” Huo Shaoheng’s lips curled up . “When my grandmother bought it at the auction house, it allegedly costed tens of millions of dollars . Of course, it’s not worth just that little anymore . ”
Gu Nianzhi suddenly felt the heavy burden of its weight in her hand .
“The last person who owned this diamond before my grandmother was the wife of Grand Duke Joseph, Princess Mary . ”
“And Princess Mary was the granddaughter of Princess Xixi, who you were familiar with . I feel that only a diamond ring like this is worthy of you . ” Huo Shaoheng said calmly as he held Gu Nianzhi’s shoulders . Gazing at her slightly parted lips, he wanted to lean in and kiss her .
Just then, a childish voice rang out not that far away from them .
“You can kiss the bride now . ” speaking Russian, the little boy said with a smile .
Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng turned around together . They saw a little boy with makeup on standing on the lawn with a smile on his face . He was clapping his hands as he watched them .
Huo Shaoheng had wanted to kiss Gu Nianzhi, but upon seeing a five to six-year-old boy standing by and watching, he couldn’t do so anymore .
He couldn’t let a child witness such an “age-inappropriate” scene .
“What did he say? ” Since she didn’t understand Russian, Gu Nianzhi asked Huo Shaoheng curiously .
Huo Shaoheng smiled and whispered in her ear, “He said, you may kiss the bride now . ”
Gu Nianzhi blushed and smiled . “Kids these days are so mischievous . ”
“Who are you? Why are you here alone?” Gu Nianzhi saw how adorable the little boy was, so she couldn’t help walking over and bending down to talk to him .
The little boy smiled and said, “Mommy and I are here to lay flowers for the tomb of the unknown warrior . ” As he spoke, he turned around and shouted, “Mommy! Mommy!”
Gu Nianzhi asked in English, “What are you saying? Do you speak English?”
Not understanding what she was saying, the little boy cocked his head and looked at her .
Gu Nianzhi had no choice but to turn around and look at Huo Shaoheng .
Huo Shaoheng put his hands in his trouser pockets and translated for her, “He said that he and his mommy are here to lay flowers and he’s calling for his mommy . ”
However, even after a while, his mommy did not appear .
Gu Nianzhi was about to ask where his mommy was when a caucasian couple wearing black-rimmed glasses appeared .
Both of them looked and behaved very much like Englishmen . Trying their best to maintain their pretentious countenance, they appeared stiff and awkward . Even their walking posture appeared so elegant it bordered on snobbery .
The middle-aged woman walked towards Gu Nianzhi and spoke in Russian rudely, “Please stay away from my son! ” As she spoke, she picked up the little boy and turned around to leave .
The little boy froze for a moment, then started to panick . He turned to Gu Nianzhi and said a few words in Russian . His eyes were filled with fear, and his entire body was trembling .
Gu Nianzhi did not know what the woman and the little boy were talking about, but her instincts told her that something was wrong . She immediately shouted, “Stop! Put the child down! ”
Huo Shaoheng also caught up and said, “The child is crying for help . I’m afraid those two people aren’t his parents . ”
There were human traffickers even at such a place?!
Gu Nianzhi was filled with righteous indignation at the moment, so she rushed forward without hesitation and yanked at the middle-aged woman who was holding the child .
The man next to the middle-aged woman also grew anxious . He suddenly pulled out a gun and aimed it at Gu Nianzhi’s head . “Get lost! I’m going to shoot you if you don’t mind your own business!”
They were in Alexander Garden, where the guards were stationed . The tomb of the unknown warrior was not that far away, and the Kremlin was behind the red wall .
This man wouldn’t dare shoot unless it was absolutely necessary .
However, he dared to point a gun at Gu Nianzhi’s head in front of Huo Shaoheng . This man’s luck had run out .
Before Gu Nianzhi could react, Huo Shaoheng had already snuck up from behind . He threw a heavy punch at the man, causing his head to swerve and he spit out several teeth from his mouth!
Huo Shaoheng’s strength was overpowering, and his angle was tricky . He had actually knocked out all the teeth in the man’s mouth with one punch!
Most people who had experienced tooth pain before knew exactly how painful it was .
Not many people had experienced the pain of having their teeth pulled out without anesthesia .
Nearly all of the man’s teeth had been knocked out with a single punch from Huo Shaoheng . He didn’t even manage to make an utter before fainting from the pain .
However, before he could fall to the ground, a few gunshots suddenly rang out from the small forest beside him . All of them hit the man precisely .
By the time he fell to the ground, he was already dead .
A group of people emerged from the small forest . They all appeared shrewd and capable . Each of them held a gun in their hands that were aimed at the middle-aged woman who was carrying the child . Of course, they also aimed at Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng .
Gu Nianzhi turned around and saw that the KGB driver who had sent them over and the second-in-command of the KGB, Vladimir, were among them!
She raised her eyebrows and immediately realized that the child the middle-aged woman was carrying probably had a special status .
However, the reason she wanted to save the child wasn’t his special status .
Even if he was a child from an ordinary family, she wouldn’t have beared to see him kidnapped by a human trafficker .
Since she had encountered it, it was the trafficker’s bad luck .
The middle-aged woman was furious . It was all this annoying couple’s fault . If it weren’t for them, she and her partner would have successfully kidnapped the child long ago!
She flipped her wrist and pulled out a gun as well .
Huo Shaoheng reached his hand out at lightning speed and grabbed the woman’s wrist that was holding the gun . He twisted it, and the woman screamed in pain . The gun in her hand fell to the ground with a thud, and her hand hung down at a strange angle . Huo Shaoheng had broken her hand . .
Gu Nianzhi quickly snatched the child from her arms and kicked her .
The middle-aged woman was kicked to the ground . Just as she landed on the ground, the sound of gunshots fired with silencers sounded like fried beans . She was immediately shot to death by the KGB .
Gu Nianzhi quickly covered the little boy’s eyes with her hand .
The little boy was trembling all over . He clutched Gu Nianzhi’s shoulders tightly and buried his head in her neck . He was so scared that he couldn’t even cry .
“Dimi! My Dimi! Where are you? !” Along with the sound of desperate running and panting, a woman’s heart-wrenching cries could be heard . Soon, she appeared right in front of them .
Gu Nianzhi took a closer look . It was the hostess in the leopard-print clothing from before!
She had seen her once in the Kremlin yesterday, and again today in the restaurant decorated like a palace .
How unexpected that this boy was her son .
Then isn’t this child the legendary . .
Gu Nianzhi quickly glanced at the little boy .
When the little boy heard his mommy’s voice, he finally turned around and cried out “Mommy! ” As he blabbered some words as he sobbed .
Gu Nianzhi handed the child to her, and the mother and son immediately hugged each other as they wept .
“Thank you, Miss . Thank you for saving my Dimi! ” The hostess in the leopard-print clothing finally wiped her tears and looked up to thank Gu Nianzhi .
