471 We are Considered Old Friends

 "You flatter me, Major General Huo." Gu Yanran tilted her head. Her sparkling almond eyes were clear and had a touch of girlishness to them.

They were similar to Gu Nianzhi's.

Huo Shaoheng was slightly taken aback but did not express it.

He'd remembered seeing Gu Yanran a couple of times in the Huaxia Empire. The way she held herself was definitely different than Gu Nianzhi. These differences were slight, but Huo Shaoheng was extremely familiar with Gu Nianzhi's mannerisms, and he could spot the similarities and differences between her and almost anyone he met. It was easy to spot the comparisons between the two women now. He did not say anything but merely smiled, turned away, and shook hands with the Governor of Barbados. He boarded the jeep with the Governor and began his tour of the Honorary Military guards of Barbados.

Yin Shixiong and Zhao Liangze wore their sunglasses and followed behind Huo Shaoheng silently. They didn't even want to look at soldiers so below CU's honorary guards' standards.

Huo Shaoheng, on the other hand, showed great interest in their army. He occasionally waved to the crowd which caused never-ending cheers. Gu Yanran wore Chanel's latest Spring-Summer Houndstooth suit and a huge feathered hat. She looked classy and elegant. At first glance, she did not stand out, but when people looked at her again, they couldn't tear their eyes off of her.

She stood in the crowd and watched Huo Shaoheng with the tanned Barbados Governor as he steadily inspected Barbados's Honorary Military guards. She gave a slight sigh. That strange unexplainable feeling had returned to her. She put a hand on her chest and blamed her dizziness on the sun. She began seeing stars, and each one seemed to contain Huo Shaoheng's smile.

She closed her eyes and held on to one of the housekeepers.

"Allan, help me back, please."

One of the Gu family housekeepers was a native lady in her forties. She was plump, but her movements were agile. Gu Yanran looked even more slender when standing beside her.

"Miss Gu, are you not feeling well again? The sun is so hot. Let's go home."

Allan was a powerful woman. The circumference of her arm was almost the size of Gu Yanran's waist. She held on to Gu Yanran and gently helped her into the Gu family's black limousine. Gu Yanran felt better once she'd been in the air-conditioned car for a while.

"Miss Gu, would you like to return home?" Allan turned her head and was about to instruct the chauffeur to drive, but Gu Yanran stopped her.

Shaking her head, she said, "the inspection hasn't ended. Major General Huo and I are considered old friends. How could I leave early on his big day? There's going to be a state banquet later as well. How could I-"

A loud bang was heard before she could finish her words. It sounded like someone flattening a metal can.

"What's going on?" Gu Yanran turned her face towards the source of the sound. She was greeted by the sight of her chauffeur's head tilting back, a gunshot wound on the middle of his forehead. He was bleeding furiously.

"Murder! Murder!" Allan screamed at the top of her lungs the moment she saw what had happened. She opened the door and screamed with all her might. The people's concentration had been focused on the viewing platform, but Allan's voice was as strong as a world-class soprano, and they turned their attention to the car.

Gu Yanran covered her head with her hands and hid behind the seat in fear.

Right at that moment, a group of men in masks ran towards Gu Yanran's car. They shot Allan in the back of her head with a sniper. She didn't even have a chance to shout, she just fell in front of the viewing platform, eyes opened.

The people on the platform finally understood what was happening.

"What's going on? Why are there snippers?"

"Bodyguards! Bodyguards!"

"Get the police! No! Get the Army! The Army!"

The viewing platform was engulfed in chaos.

The local celebrities and businessmen were brought to safety by their bodyguards, while the others called out for the police and army. The police and soldiers held their guns and looked helplessly at the scene before them. They had absolutely no idea what to do.

No one had taught them how to react in this situation.

Nothing like that had happened in Barbados for more than 50 years.

Their national safety and security were all outsourced, and the soldiers only listened to country U. As long as they paid their protection fee to country U, they were always safe...

Because of this, ten snipers was all it took to render the Barbados government useless.

The Governor of Barbados had already jumped out of the jeep with his bodyguards and was running towards the nearest bulletproof car. Huo Shaoheng, Yin Shixiong, and Zhao Liangze were left alone in the parade jeep. The Honorary guards had already gone into hiding the moment the first gunshot was heard.

Yin Shixiong narrowed his eyes and looked at the coward. "Mr. Huo, I stand by my words: these ants want to compare themselves with the elephants."

Huo Shaoheng was scanning through the crowd. All of a sudden, he noticed a spot of white in the opposite direction - the reflection of a sniper!

"Get down! Jump!" Huo Shaoheng commanded quickly. Squatting down, he disappeared from the roof of the jeep and was out of the vehicle in less than a second.

The three of them hid behind the parade jeep.

"Did you bring the equipment?" Huo Shaoheng waved behind them.

Zhao Liangze handed Huo Shaoheng a shotgun. "The box is here. I'll fix it now."

Their weapons followed them everywhere they went. Their ammunition hadn't been discovered this time around, because they were visiting Barbados on an official visit, and their luggage hadn' been inspected. That was ow three weapons had successfully made their way to Barbados.

"Save her! Save her! Miss Gu's been kidnapped by the snipers!" In the midst of all the chaos, Gu Yanran's male housekeeper realized their limousine was being driven away by the snipers, and Miss Gu was still in the car. He was panicking and didn't seem to care that the snipers were still shooting in all directions. He ran up to the viewing platform and shouted for help.

Bang!

Another shot and the housekeeper fell from the viewing platform.

Huo Shaoheng heard the housekeeper, and he took his gun and aimed. A sniper went down. He crouched and ran in a Z formation towards the viewing platform. His agility was impressive, and he reached his target in no time.

"Who got kidnapped by the snipers?" Huo Shaoheng patted the male housekeeper who had been shot.

The housekeeper used his final breath and pointed behind him. "Miss Gu..."

Then he died.

Huo Shaoheng looked towards the direction which the housekeeper had pointed. He saw the black limousine driving off unsteadily. Raising his weapon, he turned away from the light and knelt in front of the viewing platform. Aiming at the direction of the bulletproof limousine, he shot the back left tire.

A fortified bullet spun its way out of Huo Shaoheng's gun and hit the back left tire of the limousine.

The wheels were made of special rubber, but they were no match for Huo Shaoheng's fortified bullet.

After a loud bang, the limousine swerved to the side of the road.

Just at that moment, a yellow Hummer SUV appeared from the corner of the road. Gu Yanran was pushed out of the black limousine and dragged into the Hummer SUV by her arms.

"Chase them!" Huo Shaoheng waved, signaling for the Barbados soldiers to chase the men.

The soldiers looked at him then at the Governor.Find authorized novels in Webnovel,faster updates, better experience,Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.

"Go! Quick! That's Miss Gu, for God's sake!" The Governor still treated Gu Yanran like an extremely important figure. After he ordered them to chase her, he fell silent again. However, the policemen and soldiers were no match for the snipers. Huo Shaoheng saw the number of men decreasing rapidly, and he pursed his lips. He shouted to Yin Shixiong and Zhao Liangze, "let's go!"

They were here on an official visit and were the only three from the military. The others were all in charge of administration. They would not be much help, Huo Shaoheng decided. It was better they take care of their own lives for now.

But Yin Shixiong and Zhao Liangze disagreed. "Mr. Huo, we'll go. You stay here!"

Huo Shaoheng looked at them. "We're overseas. There's no need to adhere to our law. You guys go. Do you know English? Or Bajan?"

Yin Shixiong and Zhao Liangze were unable to retort. Before they realize it, Huo Shaoheng had sprinted forward like a leopard and was chasing the SUV. They had no choice but to follow suit, and they covered Huo Shaoheng from the back. The Governor of Barbados finally came to his senses. Waving his arms, he shouted for the policemen and outsourced soldiers to follow the chase.
