Chapter 25: You Are My Faith (VI)


“不比。”尚可简单明了地对马克斯的挑战回了两个字,然后转身继续收拾他的东西。

“I won’t.” Shang Ke simply and clearly returned two words to Max’s challenge then turned back around to tidy up his things.

马克斯皱了皱眉,一边把玩自己的短刀,一边盯着他忙碌的背影。突然,他从口袋里掏出一枚银币,倏地朝尚可腿部弹去。

Max frowned, playing with his short sword as he watched his busy figure. Suddenly, he took out a silver coin from his pocket and swiftly shot it at Shang Ke’s leg.

尚可身体本能做出了闪躲的动作,但反应速度太慢,还是被射了个正着。

Shang Ke’s body instinctively dodged it but his reaction speed was too slow and was still hit head on.

他膝盖一弯,差点跪倒,手上的碗碟也落在地上,摔了个粉碎。

His knees bent and almost fell down. The bowl in his hand fell though and shattered upon impact with the ground.

扑扑被吓了一跳,噔噔噔跑到尚可身边,一把抱住他的腿,忿忿地瞪着马克斯。

Pupu was frightened and ran over to Shang Ke, tightly holding his leg as she glared at Max.

马克斯看了看尚可腿边的小女孩,表情古怪:“奥萨里,你……”他没想到奥萨里如今竟然弱到连一枚硬币都躲不过。

Max looked at the small girl holding onto Shang Ke’s leg, his expression strange, “Osari, you…” He didn’t expect that Osari would become so weak that he couldn’t even dodge a coin nowadays.

尚可转头看向他,问道:“一定要打吗?”

Shang Ke turned to look at him and asked, “Do we have to fight?”

他问得很平静,那双浓黑如墨的眼眸中,既没有羞愤也没有退缩,好像只是在问一件稀疏平常的事情。

He asked very calmly, in his dense, dark eyes, there wasn’t any indignity or fear, like he was just asking something very ordinary.

马克斯被这么一问,反而不知道该怎么回答了。

On the other hand, Max didn’t know how he should reply being asked such a question.

“马克斯卫队长。”这时,一道人影出现在尚可身前,懒洋洋地说道,“如果您实在手痒,不如和我过几招如何?”

“Captain Max Wey.” At this moment, a person appeared before Shang Ke, lazily saying, “If you’re really itching for a fight, why don’t you fight me?”

“你是……卡修?”马克斯虽然已经毕业,但对光颂学院后起之秀还是有所关注的。卡修的双影快剑,在这一届新生中非常有名。

“You’re…Kaiser?” Although Max already graduated, he still somewhat paid attention to the new talents of Light Ode College. Kaiser’s quick double swords were already famous in his new generation.

“没想到卫队长也听过我的名字。”卡修嘴角带笑,眼中却透着怒火和杀意。

“I didn’t expect that Captain Wey would know my name.” A smile hung on Kaiser’s face, but rage and killing intent filled his eyes.

马克斯看了看他,又看了看他身后的尚可,收起短刀,嗤笑一声:“算了,欺负弱小不是我的风格。”

Max looked at him, then looked at Shang Ke behind him and put away his short sword, sneering, “Forget it, it’s not my style to bully the weak.”

说完,他招呼同伴,转身离去。

He called for his companions and then left.

“尚可,你没事吧?”卡修走到尚可身边,关心地问。

“Shang Ke, are you alright?” Kaiser went to Shang Ke’s side and asked worriedly

“没事。”尚可笑了笑。

“I’m fine.” Shang Ke smiled back.

卡修迟疑了片刻,最后还是没忍住:“你真的是奥萨里?”

Kaiser hesitated for a moment then finally could not hold back and asked, “Are you really Osari?”

“我现在叫‘尚可’。”虽然如此回答,却也间接承认了自己的身份。

“My name is now ‘Shang Ke’.” Although he replied that way, he indirectly admitted to his identity.

卡修望着他略显蹒跚的脚步,眼中闪过痛惜。

Kaiser watched as he unsteadily walked, sorrow flashing through his eyes.

他刚考入学院时,便听说过当年“学院双星”的大名,一个是深不可测的缇落,一个是天赋过人的奥萨里。他们两人在各种联校比赛中,为学院赢得了无数荣誉,可谓惊才绝艳,名动一方。在那四年,光颂学院几乎独揽所有奖项的“第一”。不知道有多少奉两人为偶像,崇拜得无以复加。

When he just started school here, he had heard about the school’s double stars from years ago. One was the deep and unmeasurable Tylor while the other was Osari, whose talent surpassed all. The two of them brought countless honor to the school in all sorts of competitions. When someone mentioned the bright days of the college, at least one of them would be named. In those four days, Light Ode College almost completely monopolized all the “first” of all prizes. Who knows just how many people’s idols the two of them were, how many people worshiped them.

然而,前途光明的奥萨里却在毕业之后失踪了,五年后再出现,却是如此一番光景。他实力大减,荣耀不再,被人贩子拐卖,面对曾经手下败将的挑战,毫无反抗之力。

However, the great Osari who had a bright future before him went missing after graduation. He reappeared five years later, but in such a situation. His strength was greatly lowered, no longer glorious and was even caught by slave traders. Against someone who he had once won easily before, he had no more power to fight back.

这个男人究竟做出了多大的牺牲?他又默默忍受了多少年?以自身为代价,替他人吸取魔气,这样做真的值得吗?那些被魔气侵体的人,大多是意志薄弱、心理阴暗的人,用自己的一切挽救他们的性命,真的值得吗?

Just how big of a sacrifice did this man make? Just how many years did he silently endure it? With himself as the price, absorbing the devil qi within others, was it really worth it? Those people who are invaded by the devil qi, most of them were weak in willpower or somber people. Using his everything to save their lives, was it really worth it?

他原本拥有过人的天赋,远大的前程,强硬的实力,将来甚至有可能成为一方领袖。而今,他却只能推着一辆小车,每天靠卖盒饭赚取微薄的生活费。(尚可:纠正一下,我赚得可不算“微薄”,请不要小看我的盒饭好吗?)

He originally had talent that surpassed all with a future that was beyond everyone. With his great strength, he could even become a leader to a group in the future. But nowadays, he could only push a cart and make a scarce living by selling lunch boxes. (Shang Ke: Correction, the profit I earn isn’t “scarce”, please don’t look down on my lunch boxes alright?)

刚才看到他被那位马克斯卫队长羞辱,卡修真是怒不可言。

When he saw him being humiliated by Capital Max Wey, Kaiser felt such indescribable anger.

他恨不得立刻冲出去告诉别人:“奥萨里不是弱者,他比任何人都要强大!”,却又担心给他带来麻烦。毕竟身负魔气之人,素来被世人忌惮。他们对付侵体者的办法只有一个——不治则杀。

He hated how he couldn’t immediately rush out to tell everyone: “Osari is not a weakling, he is stronger than anyone!” But he was afraid of bringing him trouble. After all, people are usually afraid of someone who has devil qi in their body. The way they handled people who were invaded was one way–If not cured, kill.

卡修张开嘴,想问他一句:你真的一点都不在乎吗?

Kaiser opened his mouth and wanted to asked him: Do you really not care at all?

尚可回过头来,微笑道:“卡修,我们回家吧?”

But Shang Ke turned and smiled at him, “Kaiser, let’s go back home.”

那笑容,如冬日暖阳。眼神明媚,没有一丝颓废,如宝石般闪烁着耀人的光彩。

That smile was like a warm sun in winter. His eyes were bright and beautiful, without any dejection. He was like a precious stone twinkling a glorious luster.

这一瞬间,卡修心中的怒意和不平,突然就像水气一般蒸发了。

In that moment, the anger and unfairness in his heart evaporated like water.

常言说“可怜之人必有可恨之处”,但一位强者,不需要可怜,因为他,从来不曾失去勇气和希望。

The common saying said “People that are pitied also have places that are hated..” But a strong person did not need pity, because they never loses his courage and hope.

“嗯,回家。”卡修露出一抹略显羞涩的笑容,眼眶微微发热,牵着扑扑的小手,跟在尚可身边,慢慢朝家的方向走去。

“Hm, let’s go back home.” Kaiser showed a bashful smile, his eyes slightly warmed as he held Pupu’s small hand and followed by Shang Ke, slowly walking back home.

总有一天,所有人都会明白,这个男人究竟有多强大。他的强大不在武力,而在心灵。

Everyone will know one day just how strong this man was. His strength was not in physical power but in his spirit.

“我真不敢相信,那个人居然就是当年和你齐名的奥萨里。”昆西满脸惊异道,“他怎么会变成这样?”

“I really can’t believe that that person was Osari, someone who was once equally famous with you.” Quincy’s face was full of amazement, “How did he turn into this?”

缇落靠在树干上,注视着他们消失的背,沉默不语。

Tylor leaned against the tree trunk, staring at their leaving figures silently.

昆西又道:“如果是我,估计一辈子都不会踏足王城,免得丢人现眼。”

Quincy once again spoke, “If it were me, I would probably never step a foot into King City so I don’t make myself a fools show.”

缇落瞥了他一眼,迈开脚步,径直往另一边行去。

Tylor glanced at him and started to walk, going another direction.

“哎,等等!”昆西没注意到缇落的神色,继续兴致勃勃地说道,“我估计明天这个消息就会传遍整座学院,昔日天才落魄街头,不知道有多少人会来围观……”

“Hey, wait!” Quincy did not take note of Tylor’s expression and continue to speak full of zest, “By tomorrow, the whole school would probably know of this. The former genius fell. Who knows how many people will come out to watch…”

正如昆西所言,奥萨里的身份很快人尽皆知。那位饭盒王子竟然就是为学院创下无数“第一”的天才奥萨里。

Like Quincy said, Osari’s identity quickly spread. That Lunch Box Prince was actually Osari, the genius who had gave the college many “firsts”.

这个消失在学院引起了轰动,第二天就有很多人蜂拥而来,想要一看究竟。

This new created a sensation in the college, the next day, many people flocked by, trying to get a look.

尚可并没有因为身份暴露而闭门不出,相反,他又把盒饭的价格提高了3倍,数量却减少了一半。

Shang Ke did not shut himself in the house because of his identity being exposed, rather, he once again raised the price of his lunch boxes by three time and cut down to half of quantity.

“他就是奥萨里?我哥哥当年低他一届,几乎每天都把他的名字挂在嘴边。”

“He’s Osari? My older brother used to be a year younger than him and would always talk about him.”

“奥萨里真的放弃自己的信仰了吗?”

“Did Osari really give up his faith?”

“这样的人也配与缇落大人齐名?”

“This kind of person could be equally famous as Lord Tylor?”

……

众人对着尚可指指点点,有好奇,有兴奋,有嘲讽,更有一种看昔日天才落魄的快感。

Everyone pointed and poked at Shang Ke, some were curious, some were excited, others sneered and some even felt pleasure at seeing the former talent fall.

卡修站在尚可身后,实在不明白他为什么明知有人会落井下石,还要坚持出来摆摊。虽然他不怎么富裕,但多养两个人还是绰绰有余的!

Kaiser stood behind Shang Ke and really did not understand why someone who knows that they will be hit while down would still persevere and come out to do his business. Although he was not very well-off, he still had enough to raise two other people with enough to spare!

这时,几名青年走到尚可的小车前,其中一名寸头阴阳怪气道:“奥萨里学长,光顾了您的小摊好几次却没能认出您的身份,真是失礼。”

At this moment, a couple youths walked to Shang Ke’s cart and one of them with a buzz cut peculiarly said, “Senior Osari, we have visited your stall so many times yet did not realize your identity, we apologize for our lack of manners.”

尚可一边给水果雕花,一边问:“买盒饭吗?”

While Shang Ke carved his fruit into a flower, he asked, “Are you buying a lunch box?”

“买,当然要买。”寸头青年夸张道,“今天你所有盒饭我都包了。”

“Yes, of course I’ll buy it.” The buzz cut youth said exaggeratedly, “I’ll take all of your lunch boxes today.”

“一共213枚金币,谢谢惠顾。”尚可头也不抬地回答。

“A total of 213 gold coins, thank you for your patronage.” Shang Ke replied without even raising his head.

青年一愣,下意识问道:“213枚金币,怎么这么贵?你每天只卖一百盒,每份25枚银币。一百盒顶多也就25枚金币。”

The youth stared blankly, then asked, “213 gold coins? Why is it so expensive? You only sell a hundred lunch boxes every day with each one being 25 silver coins. One hundred lunch boxes is only 25 gold coins at most.”

“今天盒饭涨价,每盒75枚银币。”

“The prices increased today, each box is 75 silver coins today.”

“那一共也就75枚金币。”

“Then it should only be 75 silver coins in total.”

“另外138是智商费。”

“The additional 138 is IQ fee.”

“智商费?”寸头一脸茫然。

“IQ fee?” The buzzed-haired boy stared blankly.

尚可淡淡问道:“你是光颂学院二年级生吧?”

Shang Ke indifferently asked, “You’re a second year student at Light Ode College right?”

“没错。你怎么知道?”寸头挺了挺胸,一脸骄傲。

“That’s right. How did you know?” The boy puffed out his chest and said with pride.

尚可叹了口气,回答:“你穿着蓝色袖纹的校服,任何智商正常的人,应该都不会看错。除非你借穿了别人的校服。”

Shang Ke sighed and replied, “You’re wearing the blue-lined school uniform, anyone with a regular IQ can tell, unless you’re only borrowing someone else’s uniform.”

周围人一阵哄笑。

The surroundings all roared with laughter.

寸头脸色一红,恼羞成怒道:“我只是一时忘了自己穿了校服,有什么大惊小怪的。”

The youth’s face went red and flew into rage, “I just forgot I was wearing my school uniform, what is there to make a fuss about?!”

尚可笑了笑,又道:“我还知道你成绩不好,哦,抱歉,应该是非常差。”

Shang Ke smiled and once again spoke, “I also know your grades aren’t good. Oh, sorry, it should be said as very bad.”

“你调查过我?”寸头一脸惊愕。

“You investigated me before?” His face was stunned.

尚可又叹了口气:“你觉得一个学期考核连挂六科的人有什么值得我调查的?”

Shang Ke sighed again, “Tell me, do you think a person whose failed six subjects in a row in one semester is worthy of my time to investigate?”

寸头完全被尚可绕进去了:“你怎么知道我连挂了六科?”

The other was completely in Shang Ke’s pace, “How did you know I failed six subjects in a row?”

“三天前你在我这里买盒饭的时候说的。”

“You said it three days ago when you bought lunch boxes from me.”

“三天前?”寸头嘴角抽搐。一个路人三天前随口说过的话,你要不要记得这么清楚?!

“Three days ago?” The corner of his mouth twitched. Something a passenger by said three days ago, can you not remember it so clearly?!

“学院主要科目就九科,你一次挂了六科,也算厉害了。我跟你收点智商费也不算过分吧?”

“There are nine main subjects in the school and you failed six of them immediately, you’re pretty amazing in your own way. Me taking some IQ fees from you isn’t undue is it not?”

众人又是一片哄笑。

Everyone once again roared with laughter.

寸头气得吐血,他旁边一名金发男子见同伴吃瘪,声援道:“奥萨里,你自己都落魄成这个地步了,有什么资格讽刺别人?”

The man was so angered he was going to spit blood. The blond man beside him seeing his friend being utterly defeated helped, “Osari, you’ve fallen to this stage yourself, what kind of qualifications do you have to mock others?”

尚可看了看这名金发男主,又看了看他身边的女孩,问道:“你是叫‘垦利’吧?”

Shang Ke took a look at this blond man, then looked at the girl by him and asked, “You’re Kenly right?”

“没错。”金发男子捋了捋自己头发,挑眉道,“我出身贵族,成绩优秀,你恐怕找不到讽刺我的理由。”

“That’s right.” The blond man smoothed his hair and raised an eyebrow, “I’m born in nobility with excellent achievements. I’m afraid you can’t find a reason to mock me.”

“哦?”尚可不以为然,“那么,你的感情问题呢?”

“Oh?” Shang Ke objected, “Then, what about your relationship problem?”

“感情问题?”垦利脸色微变,下意识朝身边的女孩看了一眼。

“Relationship problem?” Kenly’s face slightly changed and subconsciously looked at the girl by him.

尚可对那名女孩笑道:“你的项链真漂亮,是垦利送给你的吧?”

Shang Ke smiled at that girl, “Your necklace is very pretty. Did Kenly give it to you?”

“谢谢,是的。”女孩被尚可的笑容闪了一下,不由得回了一个笑容。

“Thank you, he did.” The girl was momentarily blinded by Shang Ke’s smile and also gave back a smile.

尚可接着道:“很不巧的,我在另一个女孩身上也看到了一款相同的项链。”

Shang Ke continued, “Very not coincidentally, I saw the same necklace on another girl.”

肯定不屑道:“项链相似能说明什么?这款项链又不是绝无仅有。”

Kenly said with disdain, “So what if the necklaces are similar? It’s not like this is the necklace is unique in the world.”

“没错,确实不是绝无仅有。”尚可耸耸肩:“但很遗憾,你的手比较贱,在两人的项链上都刻了一段爱的宣言,内容虽略有不同,但字迹却是一样。你女朋友的项链上刻的是‘无时无刻不想你’,另一个女孩的项链上刻的是‘无时无刻不爱你’。不得不说,你的词汇量真是匮乏。”

“That’s right, it’s not unique.” Shang Ke shrugged his shoulders, “But it’s quite regretful that your handiwork is low. On the two girl’s necklaces, you left a love declaration with different content, but the handwriting was the same. Your girlfriend’s necklace says ‘Thinking about you all the time’ while the other girl’s has ‘Loving you all the time’. I can’t help but say, your vocabulary is really low.”

女孩不敢置信地看向垦利,然后用力扯掉脖子上的项链,又狠狠踢了他一脚,负气而去。

The girl stared at Kenly with disbelief, then forcefully pull off the necklace and then fiercely kicked him, leaving in a crossed mood.

“姗姗!”垦利大急,跟着追了上去。

“Sonnie!” Kenly was anxious and chased after her.

尚可又将视线转到寸头的另外几名同伴身上,那几人下意识后退一步,不敢再挑衅,生怕对方顺便把他们的智商费也收了。

Shang Ke then moved his sight upon a couple other people who subconsciously took a step back. They didn’t dare to provoke him anymore, they fear he would deal with their IQ fees.

TL Note: IQ Fee, means he’ll question and mock their IQ.

“哈哈哈。”众人哈哈大笑。

“Hahaha!” Everyone loudly laughed.

但笑过之后,又不由得暗暗心惊。项链那么小,需要怎样的眼力和记忆力才能将它辨认出来?而且时间相隔这么久,又是毫无关系的陌生人,奥萨里究竟是怎么记住这些信息的?

But after they laughed, they couldn’t help but secretly fear fearful. That necklace was so small, just what kind of eyesight and memory did one need to recognize it? Plus, there was quite a bit of time in between, and it was a stranger he did not have any relation with, just how did Osari remember this?

尚可对周围的笑声充耳不闻,平静地说道:“虽然我如今武力不济,但在智商和人品上,也足以甩你们几条街。等你们将所有学科全部修满分再来教训我吧?”

Shang Ke turned a deaf ear to all the laughter and tranquilly said, “Although my martial prowess isn’t good nowadays, but my IQ and moral quality can leave you behind a couple streets. Come back and lecture me after you get full marks on all the subjects alright?”

片刻后,他停下刀,缓缓抬起头,目光炯炯地直视众人:“野蛮和无知只能逞一时之快,却永远无法让勇者屈服,让智者俯首。”

A moment later, he laid down his knife and slowly raised his head, his gaze brightly looking at everyone, “Being uncouth and ignorant can give you a moment of pleasantness, but it can never make the strong ones surrender, or make the wise man bend his head.”

说着,将手上雕好的水果轻轻放在桌面上。

After he said that, he placed gently place down the fruit he had carved onto the table.

众人的笑声逐渐停息,目光随着他修长的手指,落在那颗水果上。

Everyone’s laughter gradually stopped as their sight followed his slender fingers and fell onto the fruit.

就在他们说话的几分钟,这颗水果被尚可雕成一朵盛开的牡丹,花瓣层层叠叠,绚烂繁复,细致入微,淡淡的香气在空中弥漫,令人心旷神怡。

In those few minutes they were speaking, this fruit was carved by Shang Ke into a blooming flower. The layers of petals unfolded and was dazzling, it was fine down to the smallest detail and the faint fragrance diffused into the air, relaxing everyone’s heart.

花中之王,无以争锋。

A king within flowers that no one could overtake.

这是……信仰之力!

This is…the power of faith!

虽然他身上感应不到一丝信仰之力,但他却能将自己的信仰附着于外物!如此纯净,如此清新,如此绚丽。

Although they could not feel the power of faith from him, but he could attach his faith to an external item! It was so pure, so fresh and so gorgeous.

众人望着眼前这名衣着朴素、面带微笑的青年,顿觉高山仰止,深不可测,再无轻视之心。

Everyone looked at this simply dressed and smiling youth and suddenly felt like he was a tall mountain, deep and unmeasurable. No one had the mind to scorn him.

这就是昔日天才的风范!纵然武力不再,却丝毫不减当年的锐气。谈笑之间,透着智慧;举止之间,尽显风雅。

This is the demeanor of a former genius! Even if his martial prowess was gone, his spirit was as strong as before. Between his smiles was wisdom, in his bearing was elegance.

卡修一直站在尚可身后,本来已经做好了干架的准备,谁知道竟然毫无用武之地,尚可仅凭几句话就化解了危机,而且还收获了一大批nc粉,盒饭更是以迅雷不及掩耳之势被抢购一空。

Kaiser continued to stand behind Kaiser. He was originally prepared to fight, but he simply didn’t even need to use his skills as Shang Ke used just a few sentences to dissolve a crisis. And also received a whole group of fans. His lunch boxes were sold at an even faster speed than before until none were left.

隐藏在林间的缇落,深深凝视着那名被众人包围的青年,心跳频率似乎比以往加快了几分。

Hidden in the forest, Tylor deeply watched that youth that was surrounded by everyone, his heartbeat sped up a bit.

他曾经认识的奥萨里,就像尖锐的刀刃,虽然厉害,却没有深度。如今的他,虽然身体孱弱,却如一颗洗去铅华的珍珠,光华流转,凝蕴藏锋,让人移不开视线。

The Osari he once knew was like a sharp blade, although strong, he did not have any depth. The current him, although physically weak, was like polished pearl. His brilliance roamed and turned into a sharp spear, one that people could not take their eyes of off.

他到底经历了什么,才会出现如此天翻地覆的改变?

Just what did he experience to have such heaven and earth rending change?

想必是常人难以想象的磨砺吧?

It probably was a way to improve oneself that a normal person couldn’t imagine?

回家途中,卡修时不时朝尚可看几眼。

On the way back, Kaiser would glance toward Shang Ke once in a while.

尚可回眸:“有话就说。”

Shang Ke glanced back, “If you have something to say, then say it.”

“嘿,没事。”卡修摸摸鼻子,眼中满是笑意,显然心情很好。

“Heh, it’s nothing.” Kaiser rubbed his nose, his eyes lit up with happiness. His mood was clearly great.

尚可奇怪地看了他一眼,不知道他抽什么风。

Shang Ke gave him a strange look, he did not know what he was being crazy on.

“尚可。”卡修突然凑到尚可耳边,轻声道,“我们以后就做一家人吧。”

“Shang Ke.” Kaiser suddenly moved close to Shang Ke’s ear and softly said, “Let’s be a family in the future alright?”

“现在不就是吗?”尚可挑眉道,“你死心吧,我可不打算从你家搬走。”

“Aren’t we not one right now?” Shang Ke raised an eyebrow, “You can give it up, I am not planning to move out of your house.”

“哈哈。”卡修猛地抱住他,重重在他脸上“啵”了一下,然后抱起扑扑,脚步轻快奔进自家院子。

“Haha.” Kaiser suddenly hugged him, “pecked” his face many times then held Pupu and ran out into the courtyard quickly.

尚可莫名其妙地摸去脸上的口水,笑骂一句:“神经。”

Shang Ke rubbed away the saliva on his face while he cursed with a smile, “Nutjob.”

自那天之后,尚可人气飙升,虽然还有不少人在暗地冷嘲热讽,但动粗的行为却没有出现。一方面是因为他的人格魅力征服了一些人,另一方面则是因为缇落和卡修等人对其他人发出了警告。

Every since that day, Shang Ke’s popularity quickly rose. Although many people still secretly mocked and ridiculed him, but physical violence no longer happened. On one hand, it was because his personal charm conquered some people. On the other hand, it was because Tylor and Kaiser has issued their own warnings.

卡修还好说,缇落的话,却没有人敢轻视。

Kaiser was easy to talk to, if it was Tylor, no one would dare to be scornful against him.

于是,尚可这段日子过得十分舒心,卖卖盒饭,逗逗扑扑,聊聊八卦……直到七天后,一位老者找上门来。

As such, Shang Ke spent his days very comfortably. He sold lunch boxes, played with Pupu, gossiped a bit…until seven days later, an old man came by.

“伽莫夫老师。”尚可给老者行了一个学生礼。

“Teacher Gamov.” Shang Ke gave the old man a student bow.

伽莫夫是奥萨里的恩师,也是光颂学院的校长。

Gamov was Osari’s (greatly respected) teacher, he was also the headmaster of the college.

他摸了摸胡子,温和地望着尚可,问道:“奥萨里,你还打算卖多久的盒饭?”

He rubbed his beard then gently looked at Shang Ke and asked, “Osari, how long are you planning to sell lunch boxes?”

“老师的意思是?”尚可探试着问。

“Teachers means?” Shang Ke probingly asked.

“跟我回学校吧,来做光颂学院的客座讲师。”

“Come back with me to the school, be a guest lecturer in Light Ode College.”

尚可眼中闪过一丝讶异:“老师,我如今实力大减,怎么有资格做学院的客座讲师?”

A flash of surprise went through Shang Ke’s eyes, “Teacher, my strength has greatly lowered nowadays, how can I be qualified to be a guest lecturer?”

“学院不缺武师。”伽莫夫淡笑道,“我让你教授的是知识,传播的是文化,而不是战斗技巧。”

“The school don’t lack martial masters.” Gamov faintly smiled, “What I want you to teach is knowledge, spread the culture and not fighting skills.”

尚可沉思不语。

Shang Ke fell into contemplation.

伽莫夫又道:“你是我所有学生中,最优秀的一个。以前我这么认为,现在,更是确定无疑。”

Gamov once again said, “You were the most talented one among all of my students. I believed so before, and I still believe it even now.”

对伽莫夫的提议,尚可并没有犹豫多久。

To Gamov’s proposal, Shang Ke did not hesitate for long.

他深深行了一礼,笑道:“只要老师不怕学生误人子弟,那学生自然愿意一试。”

He gave him a deep bow and smiled, “As long as teacher doesn’t not fear this student hampering other’s progress, then this student would naturally be delighted to try.”

“哈哈。”伽莫夫心情大好,多年的隔阂,在几句对话间便消匿于无形。

“Haha.” Gamov’s mood was great. The many years of misunderstanding finally disappeared with those exchange of dialog.

伽莫夫望着眼前的青年,心中既是赞叹又是惋惜。赞叹的是他的心境,惋惜的是他的实力。虽然不知道他为什么会变得如此孱弱,但这并不影响伽莫夫对他评价。相反,他觉得现在的奥萨里,比以前更有强者的气质。

Gamov looked at the youth in front of his and felt both admiration and pity. What he admired was his mental state while he pitied his strength. Although he did not know why he became so weak, but it did not influence his evaluation of him. On the contrary, he felt that the current Osari has the temperament of someone truly strong.

尚可即将出任光颂学院客座讲师的消息很快传开,在学院中引起了一阵骚动,反对者和支持者各占一半。他们都想看看奥萨里究竟会有怎样的表现。

The news that Shang Ke would take up the post of guest lecturer quickly spread and caused a disturbance within the college. People who supported and people who were against it each took up half. They all wanted to see just what kind of show Osari would give them.

缇落是学院的荣誉教授,而奥萨里是学院的客座讲师,昔日的“学院双星”,在时隔5年后,再次聚首。

Tylor was the college’s glorious professor while Osari was the college’s guest lecture, the former “double stars” of school once again met after five years.

SnowTime: ML really has one tendency that doesn’t change hahahaha. I won’t say who it is~ o3o Have fun peeps. Should be easy to guess tbh. This chapter is about 2x longer than usual, so I’ll pretend it’s 2 and nap some more before working on others… >_>;;

  5. Is it just me??? Is it just me who can’t stop reading and throws pride away to beg for more chapters!? Count me in for the camping-in-the-castle-while-waiting-for-updates idea! Translator-sama, I beg of you to have mercy on us readers, and bless us with more chapters soon! We are sending our ‘power of faith’ over to help out! Thank you! You are awesome!

  6. I’m sure it Kaiser, I feel like the Author is decieving us. Making us think its Taylor because of his cold personality but I could see ML’s love and obsession inside Kaiser. You can’t fool me, Author! But if it turns out it was Taylor then dafuq?

    Also didn’t expect you to update Snowy-sama! Thank you for the hardwork!

    Yes, have a good sleep Snowy-sama! I already have my beauty sleep and have a good dreams! (I just remembered that I dreamt about waffles and angry firebenders, weird)

    • I also guess ML is Kaiser, at least I wish he is, after all he is the protagonist and is pampering our MC, even saying cute things like “becoming a family”. The Prince having the mole is suspicious, but it could be they are trying to mislead MC like in FOD. OMG I wanna read more! So curious!!

    I’m going to bet on Tylor. His stalking tendencies are showing. Plus that mole is another big hint. I won’t be fooled by this Author.
    Kaiser is cute but he’s the little brother’s type of cute, not ML’s brand of cuteness.

    You translate fast, your translations are by far the cleanest I’ve read, and I can’t help but feel that you add your own personality into these translations!
    I can’t get enough!
    You are by far my favorite translator!

    Now I think it’s Taylor.. But it can be the author tricking us, hm, I will just be on standby for now and not fan girl to much.

    Hey, you guys, I’m so going to invade the castle when I catch up!
    It’s acually kinda weird how jealous I am right now, but I just really want to go into the warmt and live in comfort while being tormented together with all fujoshis/fudanshis in waiting for the next chapter, that’s true bonding guys, the true bonding.

    Thanks for the chapter!
