What exactly were they going to do?
They even needed the KGB’s personal protection…
The matter probably wasn’t that simple .
Huo Shaoheng opened his eyes and caressed Gu Nianzhi’s head . He took the opportunity to embrace her . As if he sensed her confusion, he calmly said, “They will research their own stuff while we will research our own stuff . There’s no conflict of interest . ”
Gu Nianzhi knew that Huo Shaoheng wasn’t telling the truth . She pursed her lips and rubbed her head against Huo Shaoheng’s chest, but she didn’t continue to ask .
Song Jinning was accompanied by many of the Special Operations Forces’ field agents . Huo Shaoheng wasn’t worried about Song Jinning’s safety .
However, the Russian scientists’ interference was indeed unexpected .
However, he was used to staying calm and composed, so although he was surprised, he didn’t show it . He acted as if he had known this all along .
Vladimir’s expression soured a little .
He had suppressed the news for so long, so could it be that Huo Shaoheng already found out beforehand?
In reality, not only were Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi surprised, even the chauffeur and Lina were surprised .
” … Are you saying that we still have a mission besides protecting her… ” Lina pointed at Gu Nianzhi . “But we also have to protect the scientists in our country?”
Vladimir’s expression changed as soon as he spoke to Lina . He nodded . “Protect them all . You’re mainly responsible for protecting Cereus, and the people in the action team are responsible for protecting the scientists from both countries . ”
As he spoke, Vladimir glanced at Huo Shaoheng . “Of course, Major General Huo should have already made arrangements, so we’re mainly responsible for protecting the scientists of our own country . ”
Huo Shaoheng shook his head calmly . “The scientists of our country are doing field surveys in your country . Don’t you have to protect their personal safety as well?”
Vladimir didn’t believe Huo Shaoheng’s words, but he still had to make a gesture for appearances .
He nodded solemnly . “Got it . We’ll protect the scientists in your country . ”
Huo Shaoheng looked down at Gu Nianzhi and tucked a lock of her hair behind her ear .
He had brought Gu Nianzhi to Tunguska because he wanted to take her out for a visit . Of course, he also wanted her to spend more time with Song Jinning .
Song Jinning had always been fond of Gu Nianzhi . After the two got to know each other, they would get along even better in the future .
Because Vladimir wasn’t too happy, Gu Nianzhi didn’t mention going to Lake Baikal anymore .
However, she took out her phone and texted Huo Shaoheng: [You have to go to Lake Baikal alone with me in the future . ]
Huo Shaoheng felt his phone vibrate . He took it out to take a look and was speechless upon seeing it .
He looked down at Gu Nianzhi, who was still in his arms and texting him energetically . Huo Shaoheng curled his lips and typed “Okay” on his phone with his left hand .
It was a simple word, but Gu Nianzhi was instantly delighted .
She sent Huo Shaoheng a “kiss” emoji .
As if nothing had happened, Huo Shaoheng put his phone away and wrapped his arms around her . “Go to sleep . I’ll wake you up when we get there . ”
Gu Nianzhi felt a little baffled when she heard this . She was the one who had said what Huo Shaoheng just said earlier, so why did he return her words to her so quickly?
However, she didn’t object .
The chauffeur in the front heard them, and the car drove steadily . There weren’t any bumps at all .
Gu Nianzhi felt drowsy and gradually fell asleep with the long, natural rhythm of the jeep .
After she fell asleep, no one in the car spoke .
Every now and then, Vladimir would cough, and the chauffeur would glance at him and remind him in a low voice, “Cereus is sleeping . Don’t wake her up . ”
Vladimir had no intention of waking Gu Nianzhi up, but he had merely cleared his throat . Could he not even satisfy such basic physiological needs?!
He felt so angry that looked like a puffer fish again!
The jeep sped along with the three Hummer vehicles and finally arrived at the location of the Tunguska area explosion before sunset .
Lina jumped out of the jeep first and took a simple instrument to measure it . She said with a blank expression, “The latitude is 60 . 55 degrees north, the longitude is 101 . 57 degrees east, and the Tunguska river is right in front of us . This is where the big explosion happened . ”
The epicenter of the big explosion more than a hundred years ago happened here .
Huo Shaoheng rubbed Gu Nianzhi’s head and whispered in her ear, “… We’re here . ”
After a while, Gu Nianzhi opened her eyes and looked around blankly .
She wasn’t used to the jeep stopping .
“We’re here?” Gu Nianzhi rubbed her eyes and sat up straight .
She peeked outside and saw the golden glow of the setting sun shining on the hills in the distance .
The hills in the distance were undulating, and there were towering trees everywhere . Their branches and leaves were thick, and the setting sun looked like a bewitching red blood stone jewel that fell among the mountains .
However, a circular plain was nearby . Encircling the area tightly, the trees ranged from high to low .
Their car stopped at the entrance to the circular plain .
Feeling very curious, Gu Nianzhi looked around . “This is where the Tunguska explosion happened?”
“Yes . ” Huo Shaoheng opened the door and got out of the car . Gu Nianzhi followed him .
The two of them stood in front of the car . The afterglow of the setting sun shone on them from behind . Their two figures overlapped and stretched out .
Gu Nianzhi took a deep breath and breathed in the fresh air in the forest . She asked softly, ” … Didn’t you say that the physicists from both countries are here? Why aren’t we seeing anyone?”
Huo Shaoheng looked at Vladimir, who was beside him, and asked with a smile, “Do you know where the camp is?”
Vladimir took out his phone and contacted his own people, then pointing to the south, he said, “There’s a resort over there . Physicists from both countries and their entourage live there . However, in order not to miss the observation period, the scientists have decided to camp here for a month . ”
“Ah? Is it a camping trip?!” Gu Nianzhi was elated .
This was more like a field trip!
Moreover, there was a resort here . It couldn’t be better .
They could sleep in tents and barbecue in the wild, but they still had to bathe and wash their hair in the resort villa .
Huo Shaoheng knew what Gu Nianzhi was thinking when he saw her expression .
“Then we’ll have to book a few rooms at the resort villa . ” Huo Shaoheng said calmly . “We’re only staying here for two weeks . We can’t go in and out with the physicists . ”
“It’s fine, it’s fine . Leave the security here to us . You can rest assured . ” Vladimir immediately agreed and called the resort villa to book a few rooms .
Huo Shaoheng looked down and thought about it for a moment . Asking him not to mention the incident on the highway to the Chinese physicists, he sent a text message to Vladimir .
“Yes, yes, yes! I won’t say anything! I won’t say anything!” Vladimir nodded vigorously and finally booked a room .
At this time, there were a lot of physicists and entourage . Although the resort wasn’t in peak season, it was still occupied by them .
Only after Vladimir assumed the identity of the second-in-command of the KGB did they manage to book the last three rooms .
After receiving the call, Vladimir said with a straight face, “There are only three rooms left . I’ll share a room with Ivan, Cereus will share a room Major General Huo, and Lina will get her own . ”
Gu Nianzhi blinked .
This Vladimir was quite impressive . .
He decided on their accommodation without consulting them first .
However, the arrangement wasn’t bad, so Gu Nianzhi didn’t object .
However, Lina looked at her and said to Vladimir, “Then do I still need to protect Miss Cereus? ”
Vladimir came back to his senses and smiled . “Oh no! This is not a good time . What should we do? Major General Huo, do you agree? Let your precious fiancée share a room with Lina, and you can have a room to yourself . ”
Huo Shaoheng shook his head calmly, “Of course not . What you said before was pretty good . Cereus and I will share a room, and you and Ivan will share a room . Major Lina can have a room to herself, or if she doesn’t want to have a room to herself, she can share a room with you, Vladimir . ”
Vladimir’s face immediately flushed red . He flicked his sleeves and left while saying, “It’s getting late . Hurry up and go to the villa so we can wash up and have dinner . Why don’t we stay at the villa for the night?”
It was a little late to pitch a tent now .
As soon as it got dark in this area, the temperature dropped rapidly .
Without a warm tent, it was basically impossible to get through the night here .
Huo Shaoheng was a little worried about Song Jinning . He did not want to stay at the resort, not even for the night .
Gu Nianzhi did not want to stay at the resort either .
She was more interested in camping out and sleeping .
HHoping to find a better place to camp, she walked on with great enthusiasm .
Like a wilderness of flat ground gradually exposed in front, the forest became wider and wider as they walked forward .
