Chapter 23: You Are My Faith (IV)


那名被魔气侵体的男子突然恢复正常,在场所有人都感到十分惊异。神职人员命人端来一碗祈福之水,让他喝下。这种祈福之水能够检测出人体内是否带有魔气。少量魔气可以直接祛除,魔气过多的话,就会产生剧痛。

When that man who had been invaded by the devil qi returned to normal, everyone present was very amazed. The clergy ordered someone to bring him a bowl of holy water and had him drink it. This kind of holy water can detect whether or not there is devil qi within a person’s body, if there is only a bit, it can be directly dispelled. If there’s too much devil qi, then the person would be in acute pain.

不过,祈福之水对王级使徒并没有什么效果。

However, holy water doesn’t have much effect on King level apostles.

男子喝下祈福之水,脸上是一阵舒爽的表情。神职人员面面相觑,虽然心中疑惑,但还是宣布男子体内的魔气已经祛除。

The man drank the holy water, a refreshed expression on his face. The clergies all looked at each other, although there was some suspicions in their heart, they still declared that the devil qi in the man’s body was dispelled.

男子的家人喜极而泣,对神职人员千恩万谢。

The man’s family were all crying in joy and gave many thanks to the clergies.

神职人员:其实他们也很迷茫……

Clergies: Actually, they are very perplexed too….

尚可身体僵硬,强忍着不让牙齿打颤。吸收魔气简直就像在吃黑暗料理,那算酸爽的感觉,够他“回味”好几天了。

Shang Ke’s body was stiff as he held back the urge to tremble. Absorbing the devil qi was like eating dark cooking, that kind of tart feeling was enough of an “aftertaste” for him for several days.

卡修若有所思地盯着尚可,刚才是他眼花吗?那名男子身上的魔气好像流向了尚可?

Kaiser pensively stared at Shang Ke. Did he see things wrongly? The devil qi on that man’s body seem to be flowing toward Shang Ke?

“爸爸?”扑扑察觉到尚可的异常,不解地扯了扯他的头发。

“Daddy?” Pupu sensed Shang Ke’s abnormal state and tugged on his hair a bit in confusion.

“没事。”这两个字几乎是尚可从牙缝中挤出来的。

“It’s fine.” These two words were pretty much squeezed out through the gaps of Shang Ke’s teeth.

“走吧,没什么热闹可看了。”游伊跑过来,一手推一个,将卡修和尚可往外带。

“Let’s go, there’s nothing to see now.” Youri ran over, each hand pushing someone as he pushed Kaiser and Shang Ke out.

尚可被他推了一个踉跄,差点摔倒。卡修连忙将他扶住,眼中闪过一丝疑惑。

Shang Ke staggered from his push and almost fell. Kaiser quickly helped him, a trace of confusion flashing through his eyes.

薇多拉忍不住小声讽刺:“作为一个男人,身体素质也太差了。”

Vadula couldn’t help but quietly mock him, “As a man, his body is way too bad.”

声音虽小,但因为距离很近,几人都听到了。

Although she said it quietly, because they were close they all heard it.

尚可沉默不语,一张脸隐藏在兜帽中,看不到表情。卡修和游伊也不好多说,相携离开了光明殿。

Shang Ke stay silent, the hood hiding his face so they couldn’t see his expression. Kaiser and Youri also did not say much and left the light palace hall.

尚可走得很慢,往往三人都走出老远了,他还在后面慢悠悠地晃着。不是他不想走快,而是刚才吸收的魔气让他体内原本还算安分的魔气又开始涌动起来,时不时“撩拨”一下他的意志,“刺激”一下他的身体,弄得他又酸又麻又痛。

Shang Ke walked very slowly, the other three were already far ahead, but he still lagged behind swaying a bit. It was not that he didn’t want to walk fast, but the devil qi he had absorbed just now caused the originally peaceful devil qi in his body to once again start moving, “provoking” his willpower and body from time to time, causing him to be both sore and pained.

尚可不得不再次感谢系统让他在第一个世界经历了那场非人的折磨,让他练就了一身扛虐的本领。

Shang Ke couldn’t help but once again thank the System for making him go through so much torment in the first world, allow him to forge such an ability against pain.

这真是一件让人惹不住内流满面的事实。

This really is a fact that made people couldn’t help but have tears flow in their heart.

这时,尚可发现有几个下级使徒,从刚才开始就一直在他们周围游移。若是普通人,尚可或许还感觉不到,但下级使徒的气息对他而言,就像黑夜中的鬼火一样显眼。

At this moment, Shang Ke noticed a couple low ranking apostles that were wandering around them constantly. If it were ordinary people, Shang Ke would not be able to sense them, but the aura of low ranking apostles were conspicuous like will-o-wisps in the dark.

他正不爽着呢,居然还有人来触他的霉头。

He was already unhappy, yet there were people coming to bother him.

尚可身上属于王级使徒的威压骤然外放,气势磅礴,凛冽逼人,总结起来意思就一个字:滚!

The pressure of a King level apostle suddenly sprang out from Shang Ke’s body majestically. It was bitingly cold and threatening, to sum it up, it meant one thing: Scram!

那几名下级使徒同时一震,表情惶恐地四下张望,并没有发现“大BOSS”的踪迹,却也明白这片区域已经被一只大BOSS给标记了,不敢多留,掉转方向,迅速消失在人群中。

Those low level apostles all shook, their expression terrified as they looked around but did not find the “Big Boss’s” trace. But they were quite clear that this are was already marked by the Big Boss and did not dare to linger, they turned directions and quickly disappeared within the crowd.

卡修的脚步顿了顿,奇怪,刚才明明感觉有人在跟踪,怎么一眨眼就不见了?

Kasier’s footsteps paused. Strange, he had obviously felt some people following them, but why were they all gone in the blink of an eye?

几人都没了逛街的兴致,购置好一应物品便返回了旅馆。

They all lost the mood to walk around so they returned to the inn after they bought everything they needed.

戈恩老师顺利将赏金领了回来,一一分给自己的学生。尚可果然也分到一份,虽然只有三十枚金币,却也足够他和扑扑生活一段时间了。

Teacher Gwyn smoothly got the reward money back and split it among his students. Shang Ke really did get a portion, although it was only thirty gold coins, it was enough for him to live for a period of time.

第二天,几人启程前往帝都。

The next day, they set out for the imperial capital.

那天在光明殿的事情,在卡修心中留下了一个疑问。所以这一路上,卡修都特别留意尚可的一举一动。

The situation from the day at the light palace left a question in Kaiser’s heart. So the entire way, Kaiser was especially mindful of Shang Ke’s every movement.

很快,他逐渐发现了一些蹊跷。尚可的身体并不算瘦弱,但体力极差,多走几步就会露出疲态。这种体力,连普通人都不如,但他看起来既没有生病又没有受伤,身材比例匀称,肌理分明,显然也是练过的。只是不知道什么原因,他的反应动作总是显得有些迟滞。

Very quickly, he gradually noticed some oddity. Shang Ke’s body could not be considered weak, but his physical strength was very low and would often reveal a weary appearance after walking for a while. This kind of physical strength was not even equal to normal people. But he does not look like he was ill or injured, his stature was also well proportioned and clear, so he obviously trained before. He just doesn’t know why, but his reactions and movements always appeared a bit delayed.

撇开这些不论,尚可确实是个很好相处的人。他为人温和,心灵手巧,对于薇多拉时不时的挖苦,也只是一笑置之。

When he left aside those oddities, Shang Ke really was someone easy to get along with. He was gentle and clever, he merely dismissed Vadula’s occasionally mocking remarks with a smile.

暗中观察几天后,卡修原本已经放弃了。直到这天,他们偶然遇到了一名被魔气侵体的人,他心中的疑问才终于得到证实。

After he secretly observed for a while, Kaiser was about to give up. Until today, when they incidentally met another person who was invaded by the devil qi. The questions in his heart was finally answered.

尚可蹲在那名侵体者身边,将自己的手搭在他身上,然后就见一缕缕魔气缓缓被吸入他的身体。

Shang Ke knelt by that person, placing his hand on him. Then he could see strands of devil qi slowly flowing into his body.

卡修眼中闪过一丝震惊,脸上却没有露出异常。等到魔气被全部吸走,那名侵体者也恢复了正常,与那天在光明殿遇到的那名男子的情况完全一样。

A trace of shock flashed through Kaiser’s eyes, but his face showed nothing. After all of the devil qi was sucked away, that man returned to normal. It was the same as what had happened in the light palace hall.

卡修从不知道世上除了信仰之力,居然还有其他方法能够治愈侵体者,而且是以牺牲自己为代价。

Kaiser had never knew that besides the power of faith that there would be another way to cure an invaded. And the price of that other way is to sacrifice oneself.

尚可吸收完魔气后,原本乌黑的眼眸变得更加浓黑,脸色白得透明,嘴唇却异常嫣红,透出一种妖冶的美感。

After Shang Ke finished absorbing the devil qi, his originally jet-black eyes turned into an even denser black, his complexion paled, but his lips were an exceptionally captivating red, giving him a devilish like sense of beauty.

他似乎察觉到卡修的目光,将兜帽往下拉了拉,遮住大半张脸,只露出两片嫣红的唇瓣。

He seem to have noticed Kaiser’s gaze as he pulled down his hood a little more, covering over half of his face, revealing only his captivating lips.

卡修瞳孔微缩,他终于知道那天尚可为什么会突然变得那么虚弱,因为他为别人承受了魔气侵体的痛苦。

Kaiser’s pupil contracted, he finally knew why Shang Ke would become so weak that day, it was because he was bearing the pain of the devil qi for others.

卡修觉得这很疯狂。众所周知,魔气侵体带来的不仅是肉体的痛苦,还有对意志的折磨以及信仰的考验。稍有不慎,就会被黑暗吞噬,成为魔鬼之树的奴隶。没有人愿意将魔气引入自己的体内,因为每个人都有自己弱点和阴暗面,谁也无法保证自己的意志和信仰不会在痛苦的煎熬中出现丝毫动摇。

Kaiser felt this was very crazy. As everyone knows, being invaded by devil qi not only brought pain, it was also a torment and test to one’s willpower and faith. If you were careless for the slight bit, then you would be swallowed by the darkness and become a slave to the Devil’s Tree. No one was willing to draw devil qi into their own body, because everyone have the own weak points and dark side. No one was able to guarantee they will be able to stand the pain and not be swayed at all.

但是尚可却这么做了,而且恐怕已经持续了很长一段时间。

However, Shang Ke had done so and had likely done it for a while.

因为卡修感觉不到他身上的魔气,这只有一个可能,那就是他所吸收的魔气已经完全沉淀,达到了王级。

Because Kaiser couldn’t sense the devil qi on his body, this meant only one thing. That the devil qi he had absorbed has already completely settled and reached King level.

难道他是魔鬼使徒?卡修脸色微变,随即又很快否定了自己的想法。如果他真的是魔鬼使徒,又怎么会暗中帮别人祛除魔气?而且,他每次救人后,都会出现一段时间的虚弱状态,这明显是意志与魔气激烈拼斗的结果。

Perhaps he was a devil apostle? Kaiser’s face slightly changed but immediately denied that thought. If he was really a devil apostle, then why would he secretly help other people dispel devil qi? Furthermore, after every time he saved someone, he would always be weak for a period. This clearly showed his willpower and the devil qi were in intense conflict.

尚可之所以体力差,并非他身体素质不行,而是因为他体内禁锢着大量魔气。相反,他拥有常人无法想象的超强意志力和坚定的信仰。

The reason why Shang Ke’s physically strength was so bad was not because his body was bad, rather, it was because the great amounts of devil qi confined in his body. On the opposite, he had overwhelmingly strong willpower and firm faith an ordinary person could not image of.

卡修又看了看扑扑,更加证实了自己心中的猜想。扑扑与尚可生活在一起,身上不仅没有沾染一丝魔气,相反,她还拥有非常纯净的信仰之力。

Kaiser looked down at Pupu and once more confirmed his guess. Pupu had lived with Shang Ke and not only was she not polluted by any devil qi, on the opposite, she had very pure power of faith.

任何魔鬼使徒,都不会将一名有可能对自己造成伤害的信仰者留在身边,即使是自己的亲人也不例外。魔鬼使徒,特别是王级使徒,从他们堕落的那天开始,就已经彻底摒弃了良知和感情。

Any devil apostle would not leave a faithful believer by their side that could possibly injure them, even if it was a close family, there were no exceptions. Devil apostles, especially King level apostles, from the day they fall from grace, they already thoroughly abandon their conscience and emotions.

“爸爸。”扑扑望着虚弱的尚可,不知道怎么表达自己的担心,只能紧紧拽着他的衣袖。

“Daddy.” Pupu looked at the weak Shang Ke and did not know how to express her worry, she cold only tightly tug his sleeve.

“没事。”尚可摸摸她的脑袋,笑道,“来,喂爸爸吃一颗小果子。”

“I’m fine.” Shang Ke rubbed her head and smiled, “Here, feed daddy a small fruit.”

扑扑连忙从口袋里掏出一颗珍珠大小的野果,踮着脚,伸长手臂努力将它递到尚可嘴边。

Pupu quickly took out a pearl sized wild fruit from her pocket, stood on her tiptoes and stretched out her arm in a great effort to put it into Shang Ke’s mouth.

尚可微微弯下腰,一口将野果咬进嘴里,赞了一句:“真甜。”

Shang Ke slightly bent down and ate it, praising it, “Really sweet.”

扑扑脸上立刻露出开心的笑容。

Pupu immediately had a happy smile.

卡修见状,眼神也不由得柔和下来。随后,他又瞥见尚可轻微颤抖的手指和划过下颌的汗珠,眉头不由得皱起,悄悄走到他身后,扶住他的腰,轻声道:“坐下来休息一会吧。”

Kaiser’s gaze also became gentle at the scene. Soon after, he glimpsed Shang Ke’s slightly trembling finger and the sweat the flowed down to his jaw. His brows pursed and he quietly walked behind him, supporting his waist and quietly saying, “Sit down and take a rest.”

“还休息?”薇多拉不满地说道,“我们因为他,已经耽误了不少时间了。”

“Resting again?” Vadula resentfully said, “Because of him, we have already been delayed quite a bit.”

“薇多拉,尚可身体不好,多照顾一下也是应该的。”游伊搭腔。

“Vadula, Shang Ke’s body isn’t good, taking care of him more is normal.” Youri answered.

“照顾?我一个女人都没有他那么娇气。”薇多拉鄙夷地瞪了尚可一眼。

“Taking care? Even I, a woman isn’t as delicate as him.” Vadula glared at Shang Ke with despise.

杜鲁和费雷德对尚可也颇有微词。虽然他人确实不错,但体质差成这样,实在不像一个男人。

Duro and Fred also had some things to say about Shang Ke. Although his person was pretty good, his constitution was really too bad, he really did not resemble a man.

冷面美人艾米倒没有多少什么,只是深深看了尚可几眼。

The grim beauty Amy did not say much, she merely deeply looked at Shang Ke.

“赶路吧,别为了我耽误行程。”尚可牵着扑扑,对众人笑了笑。

“Let’s hurry, don’t delay the way because of me.” Shang Ke lead along Pupu and smiled at everyone.

接下来两天,众人又陆续遇到了几名被魔气侵体的人,程度有轻有重,但无一例外,权都被尚可治愈了。

The remaining two days, everyone once again met people who were invaded by the devil qi. There were degrees of seriousness, but with no exceptions, all of them were cured by Shang Ke.

每治愈一个,他便虚弱一分。

For every person he cured, he became weaker.

每当卡修以为他快要倒下时,他都奇迹般地坚持下来了。尽管颤抖,却毫不动摇。迈着蹒跚的步子,始终坚定不移地跟在众人身后。

Every time Kaiser thought he was going to collapse, he, like a miracle persevered on. Despite his trembling, he stayed strong. He unsteadily took each step and followed everyone behind unflinchingly.

卡修这辈子没有佩服过什么人,但尚可的坚韧,却是真的让他动容了。

Kaiser has never admired anyone before in this life, but Shang K’es tenacity really emotionally moved him.

“啊,终于回来了!”薇多拉望着近在眼前的帝都王城,忍不住欢呼。

“Ah, we’re finally back!” Vadula looked at the imperial capital, King City that was right before their eyes and cheered.

其他人脸上也露出一抹如释重负的笑容。

The other people also revealed a relieved smile.

戈恩老师说道:“你们先和我回学校签到,然后放假三天。”

Teacher Gwyn said to them, “You guys will come with me back to the school to sign in, then you guys will have a three day break.”

“耶!”

“Yeah!”

几人兴致高昂地朝光颂学院走去,途中还遇到了几批陆续返校的同学。

A couple of people high-spiritedly walked toward Light Ode College, meeting some of their felow classmates while the returned.

尚可也跟着他们一起进入学院,原主对这所学院的记忆十分深刻,“他”最美好的时光和最挫败的经历都源自于此。

Shang Ke also followed them into the college. The original’s memory of this college was very deep, “his” most beautiful and most ugly experiences were all from this place.

“尚可,你和扑扑先在花园里等我一会,我去签个到就回来。”卡修叮嘱完后,便走进了教学区。

“Shang Ke, you and Pupu can wait here in the garden for me for a minute. I’ll go sign in and be right back.” Kaiser told him and entered the school.

尚可坐在花园的长椅上,一边教扑扑编花绳,一边等卡修。

Shang Ke sat on a bench in the garden as he taught Pupu how to weave rope as they waited for Kaiser.

正在这时,不远处突然传来一阵喧哗。

Right at this moment, a burst of of clamor came from not too far.

“快看,是缇落大人!”一名女生用难掩激动的声音喊道,“啊啊,果然还是那么帅!”

“Quick, it’s Lord Tylor!” A schoolgirl used an overly emotional voice to shout, “Ahhhhhh, he’s still so handsome!”

听到“缇落”的名字,尚可抬起头,循声望去。只见一名身材高大的男子大步朝校内走去,他有一头如太阳般亮眼的金发短发,红色的眼眸却如染血的鬼月,穿着一身利落的劲装,体魄健硕,浑身充满力度,修长的双腿踏着一双黑色长靴,走路生风,衣摆随着他的动作翻飞起伏。

When Shang Ke heard the name “Tylor”, he raised his head and followed where all the gazes were gathered at. His eyes landed on a tall man who was walking with large strides toward the school. He had a head full of blond hair that was like the sun, and red eyes as if they blood moons. He wore a set of sturdy clothings and his physique was well-built, giving him a feeling of strength. His slender legs tread in black boots, wind blowed as he walked, causing his clothes to also fly with his movement.

这是一个在任何地方都能成为他人焦点的男人。

This is a man that could become the focus of attention anywhere.

缇落目不斜视地从尚可眼前经过,带起一阵劲风,吹起他的兜帽和露在兜帽外的几缕黑发。

Tylor stared fixedly on Shang Ke as he passed by, a strong burst of wind blew by, raising his hood and black hair outside.

尚可注意到,他右手手心上,赫然有一颗黑痣。

Shang Ke noticed that on the palm of his right hand, was shockingly a mole.
