Gu Nianzhi glanced at Reinitz, then sighed and secretly lamented inside: Isn’t Reinitz a perfect example of the devil with an angel’s face?
She silently followed Reinitz’s lead and walked forward one step at a time.
There were fewer and fewer tourists rushing out of the Taj Mahal, and most of them had gone to the parking lot.
And in the parking lot…
Gu Nianzhi dared not think about it further.
Although she had been killing quite viciously, that was because her life was being threatened.
Looking back now, she felt that scene was… tsk, it was a bit too bloody.
Gu Nianzhi didn’t regret killing the elites of Japan’s Secret Service, but she regretted not cleaning up the scene. How frightened would those children be?
After all, there were minors among the tourists who came there.
While thinking of this, Gu Nianzhi glanced back at the parking lot.
Reinitz seems to have read her mind, and said softly, “…the bodies there have been removed.”
Gu Nianzhi, “…”
“Where were they moved to?”
Reinitz smiled, and his gaze swept across her face quickly. “They were, of course, thrown into the small river ditch outside the parking lot. We didn’t have time to bury them.”
Gu Nianzhi, “…”
Regardless, she felt relieved.
But soon, upon seeing Reinitz’s hand clinging to hers, Gu Nianzhi knew that he wouldn’t give up this time.
In the German Alps, Reinitz had come up with an elaborate scheme to counter hers, and it had nearly succeeded.
In reality, Gu Nianzhi still didn’t understand why Reinitz had let her go in the end…
So, this time he set up a trap and led her into it because he regretted letting her go last time?
Did he really need to use such a cumbersome method?
Gu Nianzhi cocked her head and poked through the window’s paper panel.
“Reinitz, if you want to deal with me, you don’t have to use such a ceremonious method.”
“Oh, really? What should I have done?” Reinitz glanced back at her with a smile, and his eyes gleamed lightly. His azure blue eyes were slightly raised, and they looked bewitching.
Gu Nianzhi also gazed at him with a smile.
Were they competing to see who had the most electrifying eyes?
She was a pro in terms of that!
She narrowed her lustrous dark eyes and said coquettishly, “All you have to do is spread the word about what I did to your country’s internet system.”
Reinitz knew that Gu Nianzhi was the famous mysterious hacker Pink Piggy, but he never told anyone about it.
Gu Nianzhi also knew that what she did in Reinitz’s department was extremely harmful, and she could’ve gotten shot because of it.
But the passion in Reinitz’s eyes disappeared instantly, like a night sky without stars or moon, like darkness without any light.
“Hehe, do you think I wanted to deal with you?”
“It isn’t you?” Gu Nianzhi shrugged and raised her hand. “Look, you are still holding my hand. You’re afraid that I will run away, right? You can do what your men said just now, hack off my arm, or break my leg…”
“Oh, no. If you hack off my leg, you will have to carry me away, which would be inconvenient.” Gu Nianzhi frowned and rejected this proposal.
Reinitz couldn’t help but grin. “Hmm, that’s a good suggestion. If I hack off your leg, you can only rely on me. It would be up to me to carry you on my back or in my arms!”
Gu Nianzhi, “…”
There was something ambiguous about his words, and Gu Nianzhi never thought about flirting with Reinitz.
In her eyes, he was as deadly as a poisonous black widow spider!
Whoever fell in love with him would end up being devoured by him.
“So why did you use that poem to lure me to the Taj Mahal?” Gu Nianzhi coughed and changed the subject. “Also, was that written by my father? Or did you forge the handwriting?”
Reinitz gave her a sideways glance. “Now you know it’s a trap? You don’t seem to be very scared.” Then, he got closer to Gu Nianzhi and said in her ear, “…or you are certain that, no matter how you throw a tantrum, I won’t hurt you for sure?”
The German word for tantrum wasn’t the same as the word do, so Gu Nianzhi understood it very clearly. Reinitz was trying to unnerve her.
Gu Nianzhi calmly stepped aside and said, “How could I be sure? I’m afraid I’m going to die. It would be better if you just get it over with and kill me, instead of torturing me every day. I must say that I am particularly afraid of pain.”
“Are you scared?” Reinitz looked her up and down, then said with a teasing look in his eyes, said, “Why can’t I see the fear at all?”
“Hmph! What use does fear have? Will you let me go because I showed fear?”
Reinitz replied, “…Of course not.” But he would treat her better…
Gu Nianzhi shook her head and smiled. “So, why should I look scared? Besides, you won’t make it easy for me no matter what. It’s better to appear happy. If it’s an eyesore for you, I’ll be even happier.”
Reinitz looked away blankly. He wanted to take back what he thought of just now. This girl didn’t need others to treat her well…
Her sharp tongue was enough to make one fly into a fit of rage.
He stopped talking, and, grabbing Gu Nianzhi’s hand, he strode from the corridor to the main hall of the Taj Mahal.
The rectangular pool in front of the Taj Mahal reflected the magnificent figure of the building itself, and the water in the sun pool was marvelous.
Gu Nianzhi looked at the sky, the ground, and the reflection in the pool. She admired it for a while, then tried to persuade Reinitz, saying, “… Director Hohenzollern, you must strike a balance between work and fun. For example, if you came to the beautiful Taj Mahal while on a mission, wouldn’t you want to take a selfie and post it on social networking sites to attract fans? With my camera, I have various photoshop apps that can make you appear even more handsome than a Hollywood star.”
Feeling speechless, Reinitz looked up at the sky. “No thank you, I don’t need to take a selfie, and I don’t need fans. But…” He suddenly looked back at Gu Nianzhi. “We can take a picture together. Come here…”
He took out his phone, then faced it towards himself and Gu Nianzhi. “Come on, say cheers.”
Gu Nianzhi refused and frantically turned her head away from the camera. “You don’t even have any photoshop apps, and you don’t have a selfie stick. I’ll look ugly, so I don’t want to take a selfie with you.”
“Cereus, stop causing such a fuss. Come, let’s take a photo.” Reinitz suddenly wanted to take a photo with Gu Nianzhi.
Gu Nianzhi just wouldn’t cooperate.
At that time, she was being extremely mischievous.
First, she turned her head and refused to take the photo. When Reinitz held her head and forced her to turn back, Gu Nianzhi grinned and grimaced to make sure that even if a photo was taken, no one would recognize that it was her!
The two of them struggled the entire way, and in order to take the selfie, Reinitz resorted to all sorts of tactics, but he couldn’t sway Gu Nianzhi.
After all, Reinitz wasn’t Huo Shaoheng. He didn’t know that when Gu Nianzhi was being mischievous, he couldn’t coax her to get her to give in, but had to ignore her and stay away from her…
Gu Nianzhi was only willing to relent to Huo Shaoheng.
“…What on earth will convince you to take a selfie with me?” Reinitz held Gu Nianzhi in one hand and looked at the photos he had just snapped on the phone in his other hand, but none of them were satisfactory.
“Do you really want to know?” Gu Nianzhi asked as she rolled her eyes. “I have a condition.”
“You let my little friend go, and I’ll take a selfie with you.” Gu Nianzhi smiled as she stated her conditions. “She is innocent, and she is a staff member of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Major General Reinitz, you don’t want to cause a diplomatic dispute between our two countries now, do you?”
“Are you concerned about me?” Reinitz smiled suddenly and reached out to pat her face. “Okay, you take a nice selfie with me, and I will let your little friend go.”
“No, you let her go first. After she is out of danger, I will take one with you.” Unwilling to compromise, Gu Nianzhi shook her head.
“That won’t work. If I let her go now, won’t your army immediately surround the Taj Mahal?”
Although Reinitz really wanted to take a photo with Gu Nianzhi, he hadn’t lost his senses yet.
Gu Nianzhi nodded sincerely and said, “I’ll believe you, I’ll believe you. Okay, if you don’t let her go, then we won’t hold back.”
“If you won’t hold back, then don’t.” Reinitz put the phone back into his trouser pocket. “Don’t try to think of any schemes.”
“I don’t even have my personal freedom anymore, so what scheme would I try to come up with?” Gu Nianzhi curled her lips in disdain. “Yawning would be more like it.” She yawned as she said this.
The two of them finally arrived at the base steps of the Taj Mahal.
The white marble base was as bright and beautiful as a lotus.
Gu Nianzhi narrowed her eyes to gaze at the Taj Mahal in front of her, then asked him for the second time, “Reinitz, why did you use verses singing about the Taj Mahal to lure me here? Is that piece of paper really in my father’s handwriting? And the first poem, what does it mean?”
