Chapter 24: You Are My Faith (V)


尚可的视线一直跟着缇落,直至他消失。这个男人就是让原主奥萨里屡尝败绩,最后投入魔鬼阵营的“罪魁祸首”。

Shang Ke’s sight followed after Tylor until he disappeared. This man was the one that made the original Osari taste utter defeat, until he finally fell into the devils and became a disaster.

按照原有的发展,奥萨里成为王级使徒后,依然不敢与缇落正面对战,于是暗中诱导他身边的朋友,在第二次封印魔鬼之树的任务中,致使缇落被那位心怀不轨的朋友杀死。

According to the original development, even after Osari become a King level apostle, he still did not dare to do a frontal confrontation against Tylor. So he secretly induced his friend and caused Tylor to be killed by him during the second time of sealing the Devil’s Tree.

若非如此,以缇落的实力和意志,最后封印魔鬼之树的几位勇士,必然有一个是他。

If it weren’t for that, with Tylor’s strength and willpower, he would be one of the final warriors sealing the tree.

尚可不能因为一个痣,武断地认定这个男人就是拉威尔。但如果他真的是,那么自己的附加任务,很有可能与这个男人有关。当然,前提是他能够在主线任务中活下来。

Shang Ke could not arbitrary determine that this man was Ravel just because of a mole. But if he really was, then his additional mission very likely has something to do with him. Of course, the premise is that he could survive the main mission.

尚可收回视线,并不急着与这位“老相好”来一个久别重逢的会面,反正只要跟着卡修,其他人物都会像泡泡一样冒出来。他的作用就是戳掉黑心的,留下可以上天的。

Shang Ke regained his line of sight and did not urgently meet this “old acquaintance” of him. Anyway, as long as he followed after Kaiser, other people would appear like bubbles. His purpose is to get rid of the dark hearted and leave behind the kind ones.

“尚可,久等了。”卡修神清气爽地从教学楼中走出来,招呼尚可和他一起回家。

“Shang Ke, I made you wait.” Kaiser came out spiritedly from the school and called out to Shang Ke to go home together.

尚可将手上的花绳编好,戴在扑扑手腕上,然后才站起身。

Shang Ke finished weaving the flowery rope in his hands and placed it on Pupu’s wrist, then got up.

三人刚走到校门口,发现那边围着一堆人,似乎有两个学生正在打架。这种事在尚武的学院司空见惯,几乎每隔几天就会发生一次,只要不将人打残致死,校方都只是睁一只眼闭一只眼。

The three had just walked to the school entrance when they noticed a group of people, there seem to be two students fighting. This kind of situation is a common occurrence at martial schools, it would happen at least once every couple days. As long as they don’t beat each other to death, the school would turn a blind eye.

谁知道这两个学生打架不小心波及到了旁人,然后单挑很快演变成群架。被惹怒的,下黑手的,好斗的,凑热闹的……全都打作一团。

But who knew that the two students were not careful enough and dragged in other people, so the fight quickly involved into a group brawl. Those that were angered, the sinister ones, battle junkies, just butting in for fun…they all fought a battle.

尚可不禁暗暗感叹:真是激情四射的青春啊。

Shang Ke couldn’t help but secretly sigh: They really are some passionate youths.

刚刚感叹完毕,这份“激情”就投射到他身上,不知道谁的长剑,突然脱手而出,直直朝他的面门飞来。

He had just finished sighing when this “passion” was thrown to him. A sword from who knows where suddenly soared out at him.

尚可下意识护住扑扑,卡修长臂一伸,准确地握住剑柄,剑刃削过尚可的兜帽,随即便听到布料被划破的声音。

Shang Ke subconsciously protected Pupu while Kaiser’s arm stretch out and accurate gripped the sword hilt. The sword cut past Shang Ke’s hood and the sound of cloth tearing could immediately be heard.

几缕青丝随着剑气轻轻飞起,兜帽滑落,尚可的真容完全显露出来。

A few strands of black hair lightly flew with the sword qi, his hood slid off and Shang Ke’s appearance was completely revealed.

他的长相倒没有引起太多人注意,大家都在关注学生的混战。只有少数几人多看了尚可几眼,其中一个就是刚从楼道走出来的缇落。

His appearance luckily did not raise too many people’s attention, everyone were all paying attention to the chaotic student brawl. Only a few people looked at Shang Ke, one of them was Tylor who had just walked out from the corridor.

“尚可,你没事吧?”卡修将手上的剑扔在地上,不悦道:“这群家伙越来越不像话了,居然在校门口动武,也不怕伤到无辜的人。”

“Shang Ke, are you okay?” Kaiser threw aside the sword from his hand and said in displeasure, “This group of people are becoming more and more outrageous. They actually decided to fight at the school entrance, aren’t they worried about hurting innocent people?”

“我没事。”尚可不在意地笑了笑。

“I’m fine.” Shang Ke smiled, not minding what happened at all.

“那我们走吧。”卡修将手搭在尚可肩上,笑容满面。

“Then let’s go.” Kaiser place a hand on Shang Ke’s shoulder and smiled widely.

缇落望着两人远去的背影,眼神微暗。

Tylor watched their distancing figures, his eyes dark.

那是奥萨里?时隔五年,他又回来了?看起来似乎变了许多,而且……缇落皱了皱眉,刚才他居然连一把随手飞出的剑都躲不过?

That was Osari? After five years, he came back? He looks like he has changed a lot, plus… Tylor frowned, he was actually unable to evade that sword that was flying at him?

算了,这些都与他无关,缇落并没有将此事放在心上。奥萨里当年虽然与他齐名,但他对此人的印象并不好,空有天赋,自视甚高,对输赢太过执着。缇落看重的从来不是一个人的实力,而是他的人品。

Forget it, these all don’t have anything to do with him. Tylor did not really care about it. Although Osari was as famous as him back then, he did not have a good impression of him. He only had talent and was arrogant while being overly attached to winning and losing. What Tylor looked at wasn’t one’s strength, but their moral quality.

“到了。”卡修推开远门,做了一个“请”的姿势。

“We’re here.” Kaiser pushed open the doors and made a “please” action.

这是一个独立院落,院子中杂草丛生,显然很久没有人清理过了。

This was an independent courtyard. It was clear that no one has taken care of this place in a while from the overgrown weeds.

卡修作为这个世界的主角,在前期确实过得有点寒碜。不过他后来娶了缇落的妹妹,圣雅帝国的小公主。

As this world’s main character, Kaiser did live a little badly. But he later took Tylor’s little sister as his wife, the little princess of the Holy Empire.

“你们就住这个房间吧。”卡修将尚可和扑扑带到主卧旁边的客房,里面家具还算齐全,但灰尘堆积,蛛网集结。

“You guys can live in this room.” Kaiser led Shang Ke and Pupu to the guest room, there furniture inside was still pretty complete, but the dust was piled high with many spiders all over.

尚可环视一周,说道:“我想,我需要几块抹布和一桶清水。”

Shang Ke looked around and said, “I think I need a couple cleaning rags and a bucket of water.”

卡修摸了摸鼻子,终于也觉得有些不好意思了。特意把别人邀请到自己家住,结果却是这么一个破屋。

Kaiser rubbed his nose and also felt a bit embarrassed. He specially invited a person to his home, yet it was such a shabby house.

尚可在自己和扑扑的口鼻上蒙上一块布,然后父女两开始清扫房间。

Shang Ke wrapped a cloth over his and Pupu’s mouth and nose, then the father and daughter started to tidy up the room.

尚可负责大面积擦拭灰尘,扑扑负责用小木棍扫荡角落的蛛网。

Shang Ke was in care of widespread clearing the dust while Pupu was in charged of dealing with the spider webs in the corners with a small stick.

“扑扑,如果看到蜘蛛害怕就叫我。”尚可叮嘱。

“Pupu, if you see spiders and are scared of them, call for me.” Shang Ke warned her.

扑扑点点头,然后挥动小木棍,开始四处寻找隐藏在各个角落的“敌人”。

Pupu nodded her head, then waved her small stick and looked for the small “enemies” in every corner.

父女俩通力合作,花了三个小时,终于把这间废屋整成一个干净的小窝。

Father and daughter joined forces and spent three hours to finally make this shabby room into a clean one.

尚可很有成就感地叉了叉腰,扑扑也很有成就感地叉了叉腰。

Shang Ke felt very successfully and put his hands on his hips. Pupu also felt very successful and put her hands on her hips.

“走,洗白白去。”尚可一把抄起扑扑,转身朝浴室冲去。

“Let’s go and clean ourselves.” Shang Ke picked up Pupu and turned to the bathroom.

“哈哈哈。”扑扑乐得直笑。

“Hahaha.” Pupu laughed in delight.

卡修从外面买了一大堆食材回来,听到父女俩的笑声,嘴角忍不住上扬,眼中溢出温柔。

Kaiser bought a bunch of ingredients from outside. When he heard their laughter, gentleness flowed from his eyes as his lips quirked up.

梳洗完毕,尚可见卡修一个在厨房忙碌,便主动上前搭手。

After they washed up, SHang Ke saw Kaiser bustling around the kitchen and went to help.

卡修见尚可动作熟练地处理食材,随口问道:“你会做饭?”

When Kaiser saw Shang Ke skillfully deal with the ingredients, he asked without thinking, “You cand cook?”

“嗯,是啊,今天晚饭不如由我做吧,也算是报答你这段时间对我们的照顾。”

“Hm, yeah, why don’t I make dinner tonight? It can also be my thanks for your generosity.”

“好呀,求之不得。”卡修如蒙大赫。

“Alright, I can’t wait.” Kaiser immediately went into a great mood.

然后,在尝过尚可的手艺后,卡修便再也没有自己动手做过饭……

After he tasted Shang Ke’s food, Kaiser never made food himself again…

放假的这三天,卡修带着尚可和扑扑在王城逛了一圈,期间薇多拉、游伊、费雷德、艾米都来串过门,然后串门变成蹭饭,蹭饭变成订餐。无意中给尚可提供了一条赚取生活费的渠道——卖盒饭。

During his three days of holiday, Kaiser led Shang Ke and Pupu around. In that time period, Vadula, Youri, Fred and Amy had all came by. After they came by, it turned into mooching for food, then their mooching turned to ordering for food. It unintentionally gave Shang Ke the way to make a profit for their living–selling lunch boxes.

尚可大师级的厨艺,很快征服了一群老师和学生,不过几个月时间,就获得了一个“盒饭王子”的雅号。

Shang Ke’s great master cooking skills quickly conquered the teachers and students. In not even a month, he obtained the elegant monicker “Lunch Box Prince”.

尚可对此只能表示无语。

Shang Ke could only be speechless toward it.

“那是什么?”缇落看到林道旁围着一圈人,圈内站着一个熟悉的身影。

“What’s that?” Tylor saw that there was a group of people and within that group was a familiar figure.

昆西朝那边看了看,笑道:“你不知道?最近有一种美味盒饭很受欢迎,出售盒饭的人被称为‘盒饭王子’,应该就是对面那个人了。”

Quincy took a look over there and smiled, “You don’t know? Recently, there’s a very delicious and popular lunch box, the one selling them has been nicked ‘Lunch Box Prince” and it should be him.”

“‘盒饭王子’?他?”缇落眼中闪过一丝错愕。再次转头朝那边望去,确定自己没有认错人。

“‘Lunch Box Prince’? Him?” A flash of astonishment went through Tylor’s eyes. He once again turned his head over to make sure he wasn’t seeing the wrong person.

昔日的天才,学院双星之一的奥萨里居然在卖盒饭?缇落简直有些不敢相信自己的眼睛。

The former genius, one of the school’s double star Osari was actually selling lunch boxes? Tyler simply could not believe his eyes.

“你怎么了?”昆西奇怪地看了缇落一眼,随口道,“说起来,那位‘盒饭王子’是不是看着有些眼熟,好像在哪里见过?”

“What’s wrong?” Quincy looked at him strangely, then off-handly said, “Come to speak of it, doesn’t that ‘Lunch Box Prince’ look kind of familiar? Like we have seen him somewhere before?”

缇落:“……”

Tylor: “……”

前几届的学生已经毕业,如今还能认出奥萨里的,除了一些资深的老师外,大概也只有曾经与他同一时期的校友了。

The students from before have all graduated, nowadays, the only ones that can recognize Osari besides some of the senior teachers would be some schoolmates that had once been in school with him.

五年之后重回帝都,奥萨里到底有什么打算?总不会就是为了买盒饭吧?

Returning to the imperial capital after five years, just what was Osari up to? It couldn’t be selling lunch boxes forever right?

缇落虽然不太喜欢此人,但见昔日的天才落魄至此,心中不免有些惋惜。

Although Tylor did not really like him, but to seen such a former genius fall so far, he felt some pity.

尚可卖完盒饭,收拾东西,准备回家。他每天只做一百份盒饭,定价颇高,这样既不会太累,也能小有盈利。

After Shang Ke sold all of his lunch boxes, he tidied up his days and prepared to go home. He only made one hundred each day with the price set high, not only would he not be tired that way, he would have have a small profit.

“奥萨里。”

“Osari.”

突然听到有人喊出这个名字,尚可微微一愣,转头看去,只见一名卷毛青年出现在他身后,正满脸惊奇地望着他。

He suddenly heard someone call out this name and he paused, turned his head over to see who it was. It was a curly-haired youth behind him, his face full of surprise.

搜索了一下原主的记忆,尚可对此人并没有多少印象。

After searching through the original’s memories for a bit, Shang Ke did not have much of an impression of this man.

“没想到真的是?”卷毛青年脸上露出一副不敢置信的夸张表情,指着他的拖车问道,“你什么时候回来的?怎么会在这里买盒饭?”

“I really didn’t expect it was really you?” The curly hair youth’s face was full of exaggerated disbelief, he pointed at his cart and asked, “When did you come back? Why are you selling lunch boxes here?”

以奥萨里的实力,足以进入勇者殿堂,成为一名拥有称号和固定收入的帝国军官。再不济,做贵族的守卫或者佣兵也是绰绰有余,无论如何都好过卖盒饭。

With Osari’s strength, he enter the heroes palace and become an imperial officer with a title and fixed income. If he wasn’t pressed, then being a guard for a noble or even a mercenary was likely, any of them were better than selling lunch boxes.

尚可瞥了他一眼:卖盒饭怎么了?你知道小爷的盒饭营养有多丰富,造型有多华丽,味道有多美味吗?等小爷以后壮烈了,吃过盒饭的人都会以此为荣好吗?盒饭王子的名号甚至有可能流芳百世好吗?

Shang Ke gave him a glance, what’s wrong with selling lunch boxes? Do you know how nutritious is this lord’s lunch box, how gorgeous and delicious it is? After this lord becomes stronger in the future, all the people who ate this lord’s lunch box would regard it as a glory alright? The name of Lunch Box Prince may even be immortalized alright?

卷毛青年见尚可一语不发,更是意气风发:“我估计你也不记得我了。我叫‘马克斯’,曾经是你的手下败将,如今是皇家卫队的小队长。”

The curly-haired youth saw how Shang Ke did not say anything and became even more spirited. “I reckon you don’t remember me. My name is ‘Max’, I was once defeated by you, now I’m a small captain of the royal guard.

马克斯?听着有些耳熟。

Max? It sounds a bit familiar.

慢着,马克斯?马克斯不是参与封印魔鬼之树的七勇士之一吗?虽然他最后没有活着回来,但这样的人居然能够突破魔气壁障?不是说只有意志坚定、品性纯良、信仰强大的勇士才能突破吗?

Hold it, Max? Wasn’t Max one of the seven warriors that participated in the sealing of the Devil’s Tree? Although in the end, he didn’t return alive, was this kind of person capable of breaing through the wall of devil qi? Didn’t they say that only those warriors with firm willpower, pure nature and strong faith can break through?

眼前这只孔雀到底哪里像一名勇士了?简直破灭好吗?

Just where does this peacock in front of him look like a warrior? He was simply destroying his hopes alright?

卷毛青年发现尚可的表情似乎出现了细微的变化,顿时有种扬眉吐气的感觉,笑道:“看在我们相识一场,需要我给你介绍一份体面的工作吗?”

The curly-haired youth seem to have noticed the minute changes in Shang Ke’s expression and immediately had a feeling of wanting to raise his eyebrows and puff out his chest. He smiled, “Seeing as we have known each other for a while before, should I find you a more dignifying work?”

“不用了,谢谢。”尚可淡淡地回复。既然是七勇士之一,那么他忍了。

“No need, thank you.” Shang Ke faintly replied. Since he was one of the seven warriors, he’ll endure it.

“别客气啊。”马克斯走近几步,对着尚可上下打量,“你的样貌倒是比以前更俊俏了,只是这实力……”

“Don’t be so polite.” Max walked closer and sized him up, “Your appearance is much better compared to before, but this strength…”

尚可脚步虚浮,全身都是破绽,甚至感应不到一丝信仰之力。

Shang Ke’s steps were unstable, holes of defenses were all over his body, they couldn’t even feel one bit of faith from him.

“啧啧,你被缇落殿下打败后,是不是就彻底失去信仰了?”一个人如果没有信仰,或者信仰之力微弱,便只能沦为平庸之辈。有些人天生平庸,而有些人则是因为经受不住打击而一蹶不振。

“Tsk tsk, after His Highness Tylor defeated you, did you lose all your faith?” If a person doesn’t have any faith, then their power of faith would be weak and can only sink down to being a nobody. Some people are mediocre by nature, and some, because they have been shocked too many times and stumble down.

奥萨里当年实力非凡,可以说是那一届中最强的学员,除了缇落之外,再无敌手。而今,他身上却连一丝信仰之力都没有,这已经不只是一蹶不振,而是彻底摒弃了自己的信仰。

Osari’s strength were out of the ordinary those days, he could be said to be the strongest student of the school. Besides Tylor, there was no one else who was his equal. But now, there wasn’t even a bit of power of faith from him, this is not just a stumble, but a thorough abandonment of his faith.

“没有,我没有失去信仰。”尚可安静地望着马克斯。

“No, I have not lost my faith.” Shang Ke quietly looked at Max.

“是吗?”马克斯抽出腰间的短刀,挑眉道,“那么我们比一场怎么样?我很想知道当年打败我的天才,如今到底拥有怎样的实力。”

“Really?” Max took out a short sword from his waist and raised an eyebrow, “Then why don’t we have a spar? I want to see what kind of strength the genius that defeated me back in days have now.”
