Chapter 1245
Chapter 1245 I Like Who You Are Inside Huo Shaoheng brought Gu Nianzhi to the security check at the entrance of the Gu Mu National department store . It was similar to the security check at the Huaxia Empire’s train station, where they mainly checked the various large and small bags that were brought in .

Gu Nianzhi only carried a small red Hermès Berline bag that she always carried with her . Inside it were her wallet, phone, sunscreen, some change, and a bag of disinfectant wipes .

There were many people waiting in line for security checks, and the line went around the entrance several rounds .

Huo Shaoheng didn’t want to wait in line for security checks .

He thought about it for a moment, then pulled out his phone from his pocket and called a certain boss of a Swiss Bank .

Gu Nianzhi looked at Huo Shaoheng curiously . She didn’t know what he had said to that person over the phone but not long after, a tall and elegant woman rushed out of the Gu Mu department store .

She didn’t look young anymore, but she had an elegant aura about her that made it impossible for anyone to notice her age .

She glanced around the entrance, then approached Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi . She smiled and spoke in English, “May I ask if you two are friends of Lucas?”

The Swiss banker who Huo Shaoheng had called was named Lucas .

Huo Shaoheng nodded and replied in English, “Yes, I’m Alex and this is Cereus . Do you know Lucas?”

The woman waved her hand gracefully . “This way, please . I’m Anna, Lucas’s former assistant . I got homesick and returned home to work in Russia . ”

She led Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi around the long security line and walked to the side door of the department store .

With their eyes and mouths wide, Vladimir and the driver had been waiting in the jeep to watch the show . They were so shocked by the turn of events that their faces turned pale .

“This, this, this… they went in just like that?! They didn’t need security checks? And they were picked up by someone? ” The driver was so emotional that he almost jumped out of his seat . “That woman looks so familiar!”

Vladimir took out his phone with a sullen expression . After connecting with the KGB intelligence system, he searched for information about the Gu Mu national department store .

Soon, he saw photos of the tall and elegant woman from moments before .

Anna Ivanova, the CEO of Gu Mu National Department Store .

Vladimir sucked in a breath and punched the car window . “When did Huo Shaoheng meet the CEO of Gu Mu National Department Store?! ”

Standing at the side door of Gu Mu national department store was a guard with a gun . He wore a black beret and black ray-ban sunglasses . He was very tall, at least two meters tall, and his bulging arm muscles made him look like a giant .

Anna showed her business card to the guard .

The guard was shocked . He quickly stood up and saluted her as he said, “So you’re the CEO . Why did you come down personally? If you had given us a call directly, we would’ve found someone to invite your two friends in . ”

Anna nodded bashfully . “You have your own jobs . How can I trouble you? ——Work hard, and lunch is on me . ” As she said that, she gave the guard a lunch voucher . It was a lunch voucher for the management’s exclusive restaurant . The value of the voucher was large enough for a meal for four to five people .

The guard, who was as tall as a giant, looked at the lunch voucher with a satisfied smile on his face .

The corners of Gu Nianzhi’s mouth twitched .

Huo Shaoheng took out a credit card that had been charged beforehand and stuffed it into the guard’s hand . He smiled and said, “Then dinner is on me . ”

The guard looked at the amount on the credit card and immediately felt a sense of respect . He saluted Huo Shaoheng and said respectfully, “You’re too kind, sir, but we can’t accept it… ”

Anna was watching from the side . The CEO was here, so would he dare accept a “bribe”? He would lose his job .

However, Anna raised her head and said, “Take it . Mr . Alex means well . Remember to take good care of him and his friends . ”

“Don’t worry . ” The guard immediately picked up his walkie-talkie and mumbled into it . Soon, he called over four tall and burly guards armed with guns, then he said, “These two are our department store’s distinguished guests . Their safety will be in your hands today . ”

Anna nodded with a smile and explained to Huo Shaoheng, “Our department store is like this for important customers . We have dedicated service staff and bodyguards to accompany them throughout the entire shopping process . You can shop without worrying about anything . ”

Gu Nianzhi was shocked by Anna’s “thoughtful” service . That meant she didn’t have to worry about thieves or carelessly dropping things . She also didn’t have to worry about being targeted by criminal gangs and becoming a victim to these people .

Gu Nianzhi was amazed by this “thoughtful” service .

She had thought this service was unique to them .

However, when she entered the store, she saw quite a few people receiving the same service . Many Middle Eastern men in white or black robes were accompanied by armed guards .

The Middle Eastern oil barons were rich, of course, but they also valued their lives the most .

Immediately after, a blonde Russian saleswoman walked over with a very polite smile, and she said to Huo Shaoheng, “I’m Lika . I’ll be taking you shopping today . If you need anything, please feel free to ask . We’ll definitely try our best to satisfy your needs . ”

Anna said with satisfaction, “Lika, these two are my good friends . You must treat them well and show them the best quality of service Gu Mu department store has to offer . ”

“Don’t worry, president . I won’t let you down . ” Lika made a promise to Anna .

Anna was the CEO of this big department store . It was impossible for her to accompany Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi shopping for the entire time .

It was already a huge favor for her to personally come down and lead them in .

After Huo Shaoheng shook her hand and said goodbye, he took Gu Nianzhi’s hand and leisurely strolled around Gu Mu department store .

He said to the salesgirl, Lika, “We’d like to buy overcoats to keep warm in the cold . They’re for women . What do you recommend?”

Lika asked carefully, “May I ask what weather do you need it for? We have all sorts of brands and all sorts of winter coats . Although it’s almost summer, there are still some stores that are selling winter clothes . Let me check for you . ”

Lika took out her tablet and started to click on it .

After a while, she said, “Burberry’s winter clothes are on display for the last week . The season will change next week . Would you like to take a look? I’ll have to contact the other brands to see if they still have winter collections in stock . In addition, our own Russian brands also have some winter collections of good quality and design . However, I think this lady’s figure is too good, so I don’t think our own Russian brands have her size . ”

She pursed her lips into a smile .

Gu Nianzhi also understood and thought that this salesgirl was really amusing .

All she had to say was that Russian private label brands had larger sizes . With Gu Nianzhi’s petite figure, she probably wouldn’t be able to wear them . .

Huo Shaoheng actually didn’t have much time to shop for clothes . He looked at his watch and said, “Then let’s go to Burberry . We’ll buy whatever’s fitting . We’re in a hurry . ”

“Oh, I understand . ” The salesgirl, Lika, didn’t look for other brands and took them directly to Burberry’s flagship store .

Upon entering Burberry’s flagship store, Gu Nianzhi was immediately attracted to Burberry’s signature cashmere plaid scarf .

Huo Shaoheng saw that her gaze kept drifting towards the cashmere plaid scarf, and thought about how Gu Nianzhi had a lot of scarves, but not many thick cashmere scarves .

Of course, that was because Gu Nianzhi had never been in a truly cold environment . There was heating at home and at school in the winter, and she got around in a car, so she didn’t need many thick cashmere scarves .

But since they were in Moscow, in the future, he might take Gu Nianzhi on trips to various places on Planet Blue . Huo Shaoheng felt that it was better to stock up on thicker cashmere scarves for her .

What if she needed them?

She could wear them differently every day for the entire winter .

Besides, in Moscow, Burberry’s cashmere scarves and even cashmere overcoats were thicker than those from other places because Moscow was colder than other places, so it was worth stocking up on them .

The products sold by a brand had to meet the needs of the local residents in order to be sustainable .

“Go check out the cashmere scarves over there . You’ll need them when we go to Siberia as well . ” Huo Shaoheng pulled Gu Nianzhi over to the counter where the cashmere scarves were kept .

Gu Nianzhi was immediately elated . She happily thought about how Huo Shao had probably seen her peeking at the cashmere scarves over there just now . .

Therefore, women had different standards in terms of romantic words from men, but one sort of romantic word had the same effect on all women .

That was, buy, buy, buy .

Choosing the appearance and pattern that she liked, Gu Nianzhi smiled as she looked at the scarves .

The pink and blue checked scarf with light gray stripes appeared clean and refreshing, like the Siberian winter sky . The light blue sky with light gray clouds that showed it could rain at any moment .

Looking valiant and heroic, the scarf with the pink and white checked pattern and big red stripes was also like a flag fluttering in the heavy snow .

The light green checked scarf had snow-white stripes . When she caressed it with her hand, it felt as soft as water, but was also extremely warm .

There were also seven to eight other color combinations . Gu Nianzhi was dazzled by them all and couldn’t help but ask Huo Shaoheng, “Which color is the best? ”

Huo Shaoheng glanced at them and said to the salesgirl beside him, “Which ones just came out this year?”

“These are all the new ones . ” The salesgirl pointed at the seven to eight different styles of cashmere scarves in front of her . “The old ones from last year have already been sent to outlets, and the flagship store has all the new ones . ”

Huo Shaoheng nodded . “Wrap all these up, two of each . ”

This way, if Gu Nianzhi’s friends liked them, they could also give one as a gift .

Gu Nianzhi: … ”

“Why do you need so many? ” Gu Nianzhi’s face blushed . She tugged at Huo Shaoheng’s arm and shook her head . “One is enough… ”

“If you like them, then I can buy them all . It’s not like I can’t afford it . ” Huo Shaoheng reminded her . “You traveled abroad, but you’re not bringing gifts for your friends? I think Ma Qiqi will like this scarf too . Just think of it as picking out a few for her . ”

Gu Nianzhi felt ashamed by his words .

She really hadn’t thought of Ma Qiqi earlier .

She was completely immersed in the joy of spending a holiday alone with Huo Shaoheng .

She quickly said, “Then I’ll pick out some small things . ” As she spoke, she picked out some leather gloves, wallets, and belts for men and women, then paid with her own card .

Huo Shaoheng paid for the scarf .

The sales associate happily wrapped two of each of the scarves in different shapes and carried them as she followed behind Huo Shaoheng .

Huo Shaoheng then took Gu Nianzhi to look at winter coats .

He immediately took a liking to a long maroon wool coat . It was a slim military style coat up to the knees . The quality of the wool inside was very good . It was warm to the touch, just like a natural gas temperature regulator .

Even minus fifty degrees celsius wouldn’t be a problem, not to mention zero degrees celsius .

The coat also had a wide military belt .

Gu Nianzhi walked out of the fitting room while wearing the coat . Her waist was slim, the belt was high, and her long hair draped over her shoulders . She was beautiful, but also had the fierceness and toughness of a soldier .

Huo Shaoheng felt his heart grow warm as he looked at her . Some inappropriate thoughts flashed through his mind . .

For example, Gu Nianzhi was lying on the bed in the coat . She was only wearing the coat, and when she took off the coat, she was wearing nothing inside…
