Chapter 896: How Grand and Ostentatious!
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
The helicopter arrived in Russia at half-past six in the afternoon and landed in Si Yiyan’s private hangar in the Russian airport.
Si Yiyan led Wen Xinya down the helicopter while Liu Yanhua followed closely behind them. Her lips curled into a smile as she watched Wen Xinya’s beautiful silhouette sway gracefully with every step she took.
As soon as they boarded the helicopter, Si Yiyan dismissed Liu Yanhua and focused on being lovey-dovey with Wen Xinya.
Wen Xinya felt a little disgruntled about Si Yiyan. They were busy getting intimate with each other for four out of seven hours of the flight. She was sprawled across the seat and staring out of the window at the thick fluffy clouds while Si Yiyan thrust himself in and out of her incessantly. It was as if he never got tired at all. Her body rocked up and down while the aircraft zoomed through the sky.
Si Yiyan gently nibbled on her earlobe and picked her up in his arms.
At the airport, a convoy of cars approached them slowly.
Soon, several Mercedes Benz S600 Pullman Guards drove past them slowly one after another, all of which were in the same color and design. The only difference between the automobiles was the license plate number and the drivers.
Wen Xinya began counting the number of cars curiously and was instantly reminded of the time when she accompanied Si Yiyan to Nantong. Back then, Si Yiyan had also arranged for a convoy of cars to pick them up and escort them. However, it was much grander now compared to then.
Wen Xinya gazed at Si Yiyan with a smirk and jested. “I didn’t expect it to be so grand and ostentatious. Ninth Young Master, you’ve really got such great dominance. You’re almost on par with political leaders who are also escorted in such a manner when they’re going overseas.”
The way that he escorted her to Lishan Mansion back then was nothing compared to this.
Si Yiyan chuckled and said, “I have no choice but to make it grander since you’re here with me.”
He usually kept a lower profile when in Russia. However, things were different now that Wen Xinya was beside him. Even though it was rather safe for him in Russia, he had to be as safe as possible and get rid of all threats.
Wen Xinya asked, “How many cars are there in total?”
She looked in the direction of the cars, only to realize that they resembled a black dragon as they traveled in a uniform line, looking posh and domineering. The entire scene was proof of Si Yiyan’s status in Russia.
Si Yiyan answered, “Fifty.”
Wen Xinya took a deep breath and thought to herself,
Si Yiyan chuckled and said, “Don’t get too nervous. Since I’ve brought you to Russia, I can guarantee your safety.”
Otherwise, he wouldn’t have brought her there.
Wen Xinya nodded. She obviously trusted Si Yiyan.
About fifteen minutes later, one of the cars strayed away from the convoy and pulled over in front of them. A Chinese man alighted from the car and placed their luggage into the trunk before opening the left door. “Rex, please come on board!”
Si Yiyan got inside the car after Wen Xinya did.
Liu Yanhua got inside another car!
The car then returned to the convoy and blended in with the rest of the cars. Soon, they seemed to have merged into one, making it almost impossible for anyone to distinguish theirs amongst the cars.
Si Yiyan said, “It’ll take two hours to reach my mansion here in Russia. I’ve already instructed my people to prepare everything that you will need.”
She had two large pieces of luggage and yet, she still complained about not bringing enough. Si Yiyan was entirely amused by how worried and tense she was, for they could just buy whatever she needed. Besides, it was much more relaxing to bring fewer things while on vacation.
The car slowly merged onto the main road and Wen Xinya asked curiously, “Will there be heavy traffic with so many cars?”
She was still trying her best to hide her jargon.
Upon hearing her words, Si Yiyan answered, “No, the traffic in Russia is much better compared to China, and there are fewer people as well. The people here are very eco-friendly too. You’ll find out later that most people here prefer using bicycles as their mode of transport.”
Wen Xinya pouted and thought to herself,
Having noticed her nonchalance and disdain, Si Yiyan continued, “The cars will be keeping a distance of fifty meters away from each other.”
Wen Xinya found it to be an interesting concept. Fifty meters were considered a safe distance. If they were to be attacked, it would not affect the other cars around them and the rest of the cars could aid in escorting them to safety.
She knew that this model, the Mercedes S600 Pullman Guard, had already met the VR7 safety standards set by the NATO, and even an M51 grenade could not cause any damage to the car.
It was indeed a safe way of moving around.
Wen Xinya suddenly leaned against the glass window and blew her breath onto the glass, causing it to be covered in mist because of the cold temperature in the car. She then pressed her fingerprint against the glass and said, “Do you think anyone will notice this car if I do this?”
Si Yiyan burst into laughter upon sight of her childish behavior. “Every fifteen minutes a change in the assembly of the cars will occur. Even if someone notices our car, they might not remember the position of our car after the formation changes.”
Wen Xinya pouted and said, “How godly can you be? We’re just going out and yet, you’re making it seem like a political leader’s outing.”
It was her first time seeing something like this, despite having lived through two lifetimes.
Si Yiyan smiled and remained silent.
During sunset, Moscow looked just like a beautiful painting with lush greenery and architecture, as well as numerous onion-shaped roofs of churches. There was greenery everywhere, and the juxtaposition of ancient relics against modern architecture was beautiful.
“Moscow” meant “castle” in Greek and “Stone Walled City Cluster” in Slavic. The buildings were breathtaking and full of rich history.
“Si Yiyan, hurry and look…” Wen Xinya pointed to a building covered in red brick a distance away. It exuded a strong Russian style and made others feel religious.
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “That’s the Red Plaza, the most famous plaza in Russia. It’s located in the city center and it’s the central hub where citizens gather. It’s also one of the most important parts of Russia’s culture. That pyramidal-roofed building beside the plaza is the Kremlin Palace.”
Wen Xinya exclaimed, “It turns out that’s the legendary Red Plaza!”
Si Yiyan smiled and said, “I’ll bring you there to have some fun. There’s still the largest shopping mall in Russia to visit.”
As happy as a lark, Wen Xinya exclaimed, “It seems there’s a lot to look forward to during this trip!”
Si Yiyan said, “I’ll bring you here again during your winter break. Winter in Moscow is the most beautiful.”
Wen Xinya leaned against Si Yiyan and listened to him while he explained the culture and history of Moscow to her. The supposedly boring history sounded extremely interesting after he described it.
