Chapter 20: You Are My Faith (I)


尚可身穿一袭黑袍,手上拿着一把还在滴血的长剑,站在一地尸体中间,距离他不过十米的地方,跌坐着一名六七岁的小女孩,她浑身是血,神色迷茫,正用一双纯真的眼睛,呆呆地望着他。

Shang Ke wore a black robe while his hand held a sword that was still dripping blood. Standing in front of him was a dead body, while a six to seven year old little girl sat in a place not even ten meters from him. She was covered in blood, her expression indistinct, using a pair of pure eyes blankly looking at him.

cao!这次穿越的人不会是什么杀人魔头吧?这血腥的场面,这反派的造型,完全不是他的风格啊!

Fuck! The person he transmigrated to this time wasn’t a serial killer was he? This kind of bloody scene, this villain appearance, it’s not his style at all!

接着,他开始接收系统发送的资料和原主的记忆。

Following that, he started to receive the information from the System along with the original’s memories.

这是一个名为“图兰”的大陆,数百年前,大陆中心的沼泽深渊,长出了一棵诡异的树,它能够衍生魔气,侵蚀灵魂,然后将生灵转化为自己的使徒,驱使他们制造杀戮和灾难,以此吸取心灵衍生的黑暗气息。

This was a continent named “Turan”. Several hundred years ago, in the abyss of the marsh in the middle of the continent, a strange tree grew. It was able to give off devil qi that eroded the soul. It then turned people into its apostles, urging them to slaughter and cause disasters. Like that, it could absorb the spirits and release darkness.

图兰大陆的人将其成为“魔鬼之树”。

The people of Turan thus started to call it “Devil’s Tree”.

这个世界上能够克制魔气的东西,唯有信仰之力。信仰之力不单只对宗教或者神的信仰,还包括爱情、亲情、友情、金钱、权力等多元化物质。

The only thing that could control devil qi was the power of faith. The power of faith was not only to religion or God, it included love, affection, friendship, money, authority, and so on.

信仰之力主要是用于增幅,信仰越坚定,增福的力量就越强大。根据属性不能,它发挥的作用也各不相同。比如一名信仰战斗的人和一名信仰权利的人,他们信仰的程度相差无几,但必将走向截然不同的道路,前者可能成为强大的战士,而后者则会成为一名政客。

The main usage of the power of faith is amplification, the firmer one’s faith is, the higher the amplification of their power. With different attributes, the way it is exhibited are also all different. For example, a person whose faith is in battle and a person whose faith is in power, their faiths are not very different from each other, but the direction they go at it is an entirely different way. The former might become a strong fighter while the latter might become a politician.

相同的是,只要信仰足够坚定,即可抵御一切魔气的侵蚀。

What was the same was that as long as one’s faith is strong enough, it can resist against the erosion of the devil qi.

但人心复杂,每个人都有自己的阴暗面,一旦心生黑暗,便会引来魔气。少量魔气单靠意志和信仰就能祛除,但对于心智不坚或者心术不正的人来说,魔气会让他们更加软弱和堕落,而后逐渐沦为魔鬼之树的使徒。

But people’s heart are complicated, everyone has their own dark side. The moment darkness forms in one’s heart, it would start to draw in devil qi. Small amounts of devil qi can be dispelled by willpower and faith, but for those whose hearts are not strong or have schemes, devil qi makes them weaker and corrupted. After that, they will gradually be reduced to being apostles for the Devil’s Tree.

成为使徒后,魔鬼之树就成了他们的信仰,他们可以从魔鬼之树身上获得黑暗力量,为祸一方。

After they become apostles, the Devil’s Tree will become their faith. They would be able to obtain the dark power from the Devil’s Tree and become one side.

尚可穿越的这个人便是一名魔鬼使徒,而且是一名实力强大的魔鬼使徒。他叫“奥萨里”,以第一名的成绩考入大陆第一学院光颂学院,是学院公认的天才,备受瞩目。

The person Shang Ke took over was a devil apostle, and also a very strong devil apostle. His name is “Osari”, someone who has entered the number one college Light Ode College with the achievement as number one and a publically known genius. Much attention of good and bad are on him.

他信仰的是“第一”,从小就喜欢争夺第一的名头,立志要成为大陆第一战士,绝不屈居人下。但是两年后,他迎来了成年后第一次失败。

His faith was in “number one”. He had always liked to fight for number one since young and was determined to become the number one fighter on the continuent, not losing to anyone. But two years later, he had received his first defeat ever since he had became of age.

他遇到了一名与他旗鼓相当的天才,而且对方比他还小2岁,一入学便抢走了他的第一,之后几次对战更是胜少负多。最让他深受打击的一次,便是毕业之战,对方以绝对优势将他打败。那时他才知道对方以前一直在隐藏实力,他输得体无完肤。

He met a genius that matched him evenly, moreover, that person was younger than him by two years. The moment he joined the school, his number one title was snatched, and the battles after that were always few in victories and more in losses. The blow that hitted him the hardest was the graduation battle, the other completely dominated and defeated him. Only then did he know that the other was always hiding his strength, he lost without any dignity left.

信仰“第一”的奥萨里接受不了失败的事实,心生怨恨,远走他方,从此音信全无。

Osari whose faith is in “number one” could not accept the reality of defeat and resentment grew in his heart. He then went far away and no news on him were ever heard.

他并不知道,屡次战胜他的人是来自皇族的缇洛王子,他从小接受非人的训练,无论是艰苦程度还是资源条件,都远远超过奥萨里。若单论天赋,奥萨里绝对更胜一筹。可惜他心志不坚,几次失败就让他的信仰崩塌。所谓“第一”并不代表不能失败,而是为登上顶峰不断努力,直至铸炼出属于自己的“第一”。

He did not know that the person who defeated him was Prince Tylor of the imperial family, who had accepted inhuman training since young. No matter if it was the difficulty or the resources he had, everything surpassed Osari. If it was just talent, Osari would unconditionally win. But it was a pity that his willpower wasn’t strong, the defeats had completely collapsed his faith. The so-called “number one” did not represent being undefeated, rather, it is so that he could continue to climb to the summit and keep striving hard, until he could make something that was only his “number one”.

众人并不知道奥萨里离开后,因为心中的不甘一直无法疏解,从而受到魔气侵蚀,最终投入魔鬼之树的怀抱,成为了它的使徒。

Everyone did not know that after Osari left, because of the unwillingness in his heart he was unable to obtain release and thus became eroded by the devil qi. In the end, the threw himself into the Devil’s Tree’s embrace and become an apostle.

尚可穿过来时,已经是奥萨里成为使徒的第五年。他原本就是战斗天才,信仰魔鬼之树后,获得魔气加成,更是实力大增。他在图兰大陆上横行无忌,四处制造杀戮。众人只知道有这样一个摸头,却不知道他就是五年前销声匿迹的天才奥萨里。他的残忍和强大令人闻风丧胆,被称之为“煞魔”。

When Shang Ke transmigrated, it was already Osari’s fifth year as an apostle. He was a fighting genius in the first place, after his faith turned to the Devil’s Tree and obtained the additional power of the devil qi, his strength increased even more. He had rampaged over Turan Continent with no one to stop him, committing slaughter everywhere. Everyone only knows that there is such an apostle, but no one knows that he was the genius Osari who had went missing five years ago. His cruelty and power caused people to fall in terror and was known as the “Slaughter Devil”.

果然是大反派!

It really was a great villain!

尚可最初的感觉完全没有错,而现在,正是这个大反派的人生转折点。

Shang Ke’s first feeling was completely right, and right now, this was the turning point of this great villain.

他刚刚杀死一伙专卖买卖人口的人贩子,剩下的那个女孩,正是他们的“货品”之一。

He had just killed a group of slave traders, only that girl remains and she was one of their “goods”.

如果尚可没有出现,那么奥萨里接下来就会举起手中的剑,毫不留情地劈向这个小女孩,这时正好碰上了这个世界的主角卡修以及他的伙伴们,双方展开了一场激战。

If Shang Ke did not appear, then Osari would then raise his sword and unhesitantly strike toward this child. At that moment, he would run into this world’s main character Kaiser and his companions. The two sides would then start a fierce battle.

奥萨里霸气侧漏,将主角的伙伴全部杀死,最后只剩下了卡修和那个小女孩。

Osari’s would aggressively kill the main character’s companions until only Kaiser and that small girl is left alive.

自此之后,“煞魔”奥萨里便和主角卡修开始了一场无休无止的正邪之战,而那个小女孩也成为了卡修的助力之一。

From then on, “Slaughter Devil” Osari and the main character Kaiser would forever fight. That girl will also come one of Kaiser’s helping hand.

尚可看着不远处的小女孩,总算知道她的名字——“扑扑”,这个小女孩智力不全,但心灵纯净,拥有非常强大的信仰之力。

Shang Ke looked at the girl from not far away and finally knew her name–Pupu”. This girl’s intelligence isn’t high, but her spirit is very pure and has a very strong power of faith.

【主线任务:封印魔鬼之树。】

【Main mission: Seal the Devil’s Tree.】

尚可无语,他现在的身份是魔鬼之树的使徒,如果封印魔鬼之树,他将因为失去魔气而沦为废人。当然,沦为废人无所谓,重点是他“煞魔”的身份,虽然没有多少人能认出他,但作为反派,一身魔气的他,真的能活到封印魔鬼之树的时候吗?

Shang Ke was speechless. His current identity was the Devil’s Tree’s apostle, if he were to seal the Devil’s Tree, then he would lose his devil qi and become a useless person. Of course, he doesn’t care if he turns into one, the important part was his “Slaughter Devil” identity. Although not many people could recognize him, as a villain, his entire body was full of devil qi, can he really live to the point of sealing the Devil’s Tree?

另外,换了灵魂之后,他不再信仰魔鬼之树,这也就意味着自己不能再获得魔气加成。相反,因为信仰抵触,他还必会受到魔气的反噬,必须依靠意志,强行压制体内的魔气,时刻忍受魔气冲体的痛苦。

Plus, after the exchange the souls, he no longer believes in the Devil’s Tree so this meant that he could not obtain power from the devil qi. Quite the opposite, because of the conflict in faith, he would obtain the opposite from the devil qi, he needs to rely on his willpower and forcefully suppress the devil qi within his body, and bear the pain of the devil qi.

这个世界还没开始,尚可几乎已经可以预见自己悲催的未来。

This world has even started yet Shang Ke could already foresee his miserable future.

系统,突然把毫无自保能力的他扔到如此危险的世界真的好吗?至少也先等他学点武术和魔法再说啊!

System, is it really good to throw him, who has no defensive ability whatsoever into this world? At least wait for him to learn some martial arts or magic!

尚可此时已经没有多少时间耽误了,因为卡修一行马上就会从山岩转角处冒出来。

Shang Ke no longer has time to delay, because Kaiser and his companions would appear from the corner of the rock mountain at any moment.

见到这一地的尸体和举着长剑准备杀人的自己,估计二话不说就会动手。这时再躲也来不及了,尚可干脆扔掉手上的剑,冲到小女孩扑扑身边,一把将她抱住。

Looking at the dead bodies littering around him and the sword in his hand preparing to kill someone, they likely wouldn’t say a would and attack him. He has no time to hide, so Shang Ke directly threw away the sword in his hand and rushed up to the little girl Pupu and held her.

刚做完这一切,就见7个人先后从另一边冲过来。他们看到地上尸体和拥抱在一起的一大一小,全都愣了一下。

The moment he did all of that, he saw seven people rush over. They all looked down at the dead bodies on the ground then the two embracing figures and all stared blankly.

“发生什么事了?”一名年约四十的金发男子警惕地望着尚可。

“What happened?” A blond hair man in his forties vigilantly looked at Shang Ke.

尚可轻声反问:“你们又是谁?”

Shang Ke asked softly in reply, “And who are you people?”

“我叫‘戈恩’,是光颂学院的老师,带几名学生出来历练。”几人并没有贸然靠近,而是仔细打量四周的情况。

My name is Gwyn, a teacher of Light Ode College. I am leading some students out for experience.” The few people did not rashly approach them, rather, they carefully sized up the situation.

地上二十几具尸体,全都残缺不全,死状可怖,显然遭遇了强大的袭击。活着的这一大一小,大的穿着一身黑色斗篷,看不清面目,但听声音应该还很年轻;小的不过六七岁,长得秀气可爱,只是身体瘦弱,看起来有些营养不良。

The over twenty bodies on the ground were all badly damaged with no a single one in one piece. The way they died was terrifying, it was clear they met a powerful attacker. The ones alive were only these two, one small one large. The older one was dressed entirely in black and they couldn’t see his appearance, but by his voice, he should be quite young. The younger one was only six or seven,

两人身上都沾满血迹,坐在一堆尸体中,显得格外突兀。

The two were both stained with blood and appeared especially towering in the piles of bodies.

尚可听到光颂学院,暗想这不就是奥萨里的母校吗?

When Shang Ke heard Light Ode College, he thought to himself, wasn’t this the alma mater of Osari?

尚可解释道:“地上这些是人贩子,我们是被他们从其他地方掳过来的。经过这里时,遇到了一个可怕的男人,他见人就杀,最后只剩下了我们两个。”

Shang Ke explained to him, “These people are all slave traders, we were captured by them and moved here. When the group was passing by here, we met a frightening man, the moment he saw people he killed them. In the end, only the two of us were left.”

怀里的扑扑看了尚可一眼,一脸迷茫,完全不知道他在说什么。不过他的怀抱,却让她感到安心,与刚才的阴冷截然不同。

Pupu in his embrace looked up at Shang Ke, her face at a loss, she did not understand him at all. However, his embrace made her feel very much at ease, it was completely different from the coldness from before.

她轻轻靠在尚可胸口,偏头望着戈恩几人。

She lightly leaned against his chest, then tilted her head to look at Gwyn and the others.

尚可并没有注意她的动作,但戈恩几人却看到了。他们或许对尚可心有疑虑,但小女孩的亲近,让他们稍稍放下了戒心。

Shang Ke did not notice her action but Gwyn and the others saw it. Perhaps they have some misgivings against Shang Ke, but with the intimateness of the little girl, they somewhat lowered their vigilance.

戈恩带着一名学生去查看尸体,其他人负责警戒。他们很快找出了一些可疑的东西,尚可并没有说谎,这些人确实是人口贩子,其中几人还是榜上有名的通缉犯。

Gwyn brought one student with him to check the dead bodies while the others remained on guard. They quickly found some suspicious things. Shang Ke did not lie, these people were slave trackers, some of them were even famous wanted criminals.

趁着他们翻看尸体的空档,尚可也在悄悄打量他们。

Taking the chance when they were checking the bodies, Shang Ke also quietly sized them up.

一共五男二女,名叫“戈恩”的金发男子最年长,其他都只有二十上下。

It was a total of five men and two women. The blond man named Gwyn was the oldest, the others were all only around twenty.

尚可最先注意的是主角卡修,身高大约180公分,一头银色短发,长相俊逸,嘴角微微上扬,一双长腿随意站着,身后交叉背着两把剑,有些懒洋洋的样子,但那双冰蓝色的眼睛却异常精亮,如大海般深不见底。

The first one Shang Ke took note of was the main character Kaiser. His height was roughly 180cm tall and has a head full of silver hair, handsome with the corners of his lips slightly raised. A pair of long legs stood there casually, while a pair of swords crossed behind his back. His somewhat lazy appearance along with that pair of ice-blue eyes were exceptionally bright, like the deepness in sea that you could not see the end of.

尚可觉得这个男人的女人缘一定很好,看他旁边那个红发女孩,一分钟之内就偷瞄了他三次。

Shang Ke felt that this man must be good with woman, look at that red-hair girl beside him, she had stole three glances at him in one minute.

红发女孩五官精致,气质妩媚。收腰紧身的装束,将她傲人的身材完全勾勒出来。

The red-haired girl’s face was delicate, her temperament charming. Her skintight attire completely outlined her impressive stature.

除此之外,还有一名看起来很冷的棕发女孩,一名阴沉的矮胖男孩,一名笑容可掬的清瘦男孩以及一名身高超过2米的大壮。这几个人本来都会死在奥萨里手上,所以尚可并不知道他们的名字。

After from them, there was also a seemingly very cold brown-haired girl, a gloomy short and stout boy, a beaming thin boy as well another robust boy whose height is over two meters. These people were all suppose to die in Osari’s hands, so Shang Ke does not know their names.

“你叫什么?”戈恩检查完毕后,缓步走到尚可身边。

“What’s your name?” After Gwyn finished checking, he slowly walked to Shang Ke’s side.

“‘尚可’,她是‘扑扑’。”尚可摸了摸怀里的女孩。

“Shang Ke, she’s Pupu.” Shang Ke rubbed the girl in his embrace.

女孩听到他喊自己的名字,抬头露出一个笑容。

The girl raised her head and smiled when she heard him call her name.

戈恩看着她带血的笑脸,心里感觉有些诡异,却也没多说什么,转身给尚可介绍起自己学生。

Gwyn looked at her slightly bloody smiling face and felt it was a bit strange, but he did not say anything and turned around to introduce Shang Ke to his students.

红发女孩叫薇多拉,其次是艾米、杜鲁、游伊、费雷德,再加上“主角”卡修。

The red-haired girl was Vadula, next was Amy, Doru, Youri, Fred and “main character” Kaiser.

随后,戈恩又问:“你们是哪里的人?如果就在本国境内,我们可以送你们回家。”

Then, Gwyn asked, “Where are you two from? If it’s in the country’s borders, then we can send you two home.”

“不用了,我们已经没有家了。”尚可用低沉的声音回道。

“There’s no need, we already no longer have homes.” Shang Ke used a gloomy voice to reply.

戈恩愣了一下,随即叹道:“那就先跟着我们吧,我们接下来要去守望城,到了那里再作打算。”

Gwyn paused for a moment, then immediately sighed. “Then you can follow us for now, we are going to Watcher City. We’ll decide what to do when we get there.”

“谢谢。”尚可诚恳地道了一声谢。

“Thank you.” Shang Ke sincerely gave his thanks.

SnowTime: It’s fun to watch how camping evolves lmao.
