Chapter 26: You Are My Faith (VII)


伽莫夫校长为尚可准备了一间临时备课室,原本想直接给他安排一套住房,却被他拒绝了。因为他答应过卡修,要与他住一起。而且他也不想离“主角”太远,以免发生无法预测的意外。

Headmaster Gamov prepared a temporary room as his office and originally wanted to arrange a housing room for him but was refused. Because Shang Ke had promised to Kaiser before that he would live with. Plus, he didn’t want to be too far from the “main character” in order to avoid mishaps.

尚可之所以答应成为客座讲师,主要是为了方便公开封印魔鬼之树的方法,在此之前,他必须拥有一定的地位和声誉,这样一来,他的话才能取信于人。

The reason why Shang Ke agreed to becoming a guest lecturer was so that he could more easily make public the way to seal the Devil’s Tree. Before that, he also had to make his status and reputation so that people would believe in him.

他记忆力过人,再结合原主所学的知识,给一年级新生授课应该不成问题。

His memory far surpassed others and with the original’s knowledge, giving lessons to the freshmans should be fine.

缇落过来时,尚可正在休息室备课。只见他斜靠在窗台上,长长的头发随意垂在身侧,两腿微微屈起,摆出一个舒服姿势,一边喝茶一边翻阅课本。午后的阳光洒在他身上,让他看起来就像一只悠闲的懒猫。

When Tylor went over, Shang Ke was preparing his lessons in the lounge. He saw him leaning against the window sill, his long hair flowing by his side. His legs were slightly raised, assuming a comfortable posture while he drank tea and thumbed through a textbook. The afternoon sun shone on, making him appear like a carefree lazy cat.

缇落注意到尚可翻书的速度很快,几乎每隔三秒就会翻一页。缇落并不认为对方是在胡乱翻看,唯一的可能就是,他能一目十行。

Tylor noticed that Shang Ke’s flipping speed was very fast, he turned a page about every three seconds. Tylor did not believe that he was randomly flipping through it, so the only possibility was that he could read extremely quickly.

尚可似有所觉,抬头朝门口望去,立刻对上一双血红色的眼眸。说实在的,尚可觉得红色眼睛看起来有些可怕,特别是长在一张冷峻的脸上。

Shang Ke seem to have felt his gaze and raised his head, meeting a pair of blood-red eyes. To tell the truth, Shang Ke felt that red eyes were a bit scary, especially when they’re on a grave and stern face.

“不好意思,打扰了。”缇落迈步走进休息室。

“Apologizes for the disturbance.” Tylor entered the lounge.

尚可看向他:“缇落大人找我?”

Shang Ke looked at him, “Lord Tylor is looking for me?”

“校长让我来问问你,备课方面有什么需要帮助的?”缇落面不改色地找了个借口。

“Headmaster had me come to ask you, do you need any help in preparing your lessons?” Tylor made an excuse without any change in expression.

“没有。”尚可态度疏离。如果这个男人真的是自己心中所想的那个人,那么尚可实在不想与他走得太近,至少在无法确定自己能否存活之前不想。

“No need.” Shang Ke’s attitude became distant. If this man really was the man in his heart, then Shang Ke really did not want to walk too close to him. At least when he was not able to determine if he could survive.

缇落走到他身边,盯着他的眼睛,问道:“你讨厌我?”

Tylor walked until he was next to him and stared at him in his eyes, asking, “You don’t like me?”

“作为你的手下败将,你觉得我应该喜欢你?”尚可挑了挑眉,下巴微微扬起。

“As the one who was defeated by you, you think I should like you?” Shang Ke raised an eyebrow, his chin also slightly held up.

缇落的视线扫过他水润的嘴唇,说道:“以前的你或许讨厌我,但现在的你,未必真的讨厌我。”

Tylor’s line of sight swept across his moist lips and said, “Perhaps you disliked me before, but the current you may not necessarily dislike me.”

“哦?何以见得?”尚可做出一副洗耳恭听的模样。

“Oh? How are you so sure?” Shang Ke wore a respectfully listening face.

“你的眼中,没有厌恶。”缇落语气笃定。

“There is no hate in your eyes.” Tylor said with certainty.

尚可皱了皱眉,突然伸出手指将自己的眼角向上顶起,面露凶光,狠狠道:“这样呢?够厌恶了吧。”

Shang Ke frowned and suddenly used his fingers to raise the corner of his eyes, his face revealing an ominous light as he fiercely said, “How about this? Enough hate now?”

缇落面色冷沉地盯着尚可搞怪的表情,一语不发。

Tylor stared coldly at Shang Ke’s wacky expression without saying a word.

做完这个动作,尚可就后悔了!他是有多手贱啊,没事在缇落面前耍什么宝?说好的冷艳高贵呢?

After Shang Ke did that action, he regretted it! Just how stupid was he, playing around in front of Tylor when he had was better off doing something else? What happened to his cold and elegant grandeur?

“你继续备课吧,我不打扰了。”说完这句话,缇落就走出了休息室,留下尚可一个人在休息室凌乱。

“You should continue preparing your lessons, I won’t disturb you.” He left the lounge right after he said that, leaving Shang Ke to panic around by himself.

缇落离开休息室,拐进一条走廊,突然笑了一声。

Tylor left the room and turned into a corridor before suddenly bursting into laughter.

“咳。”不过一瞬间,缇落又恢复了往日的冷峻,脑中却深深记住了尚可那张搞怪的脸,一整天心情都很愉快。

“Cough.” In only a moment, Tylor quickly returned to his grave and stern face. But his mind deeply remembered Shang Ke’s wacky face. His mood was very cheerful for the entire day.

为什么以前没发现奥萨里是这么可爱的一个家伙呢?

Why did he never notice before that Osari was actually so cute?

尚可的第一堂课,是在受聘后的第三天,教授的内容是魔气与信仰的制约关系。

Shang Ke’s first lecture was on the third day of the guest lecturing. The content of his lecture was about devil qi and faith’s conditional relationship.

这天,教室座无虚席,还有很多人在教室外旁听。

On this day, the classroom was a full house with many even crowding outside the door.

尚可的心理素质极好,完全不知道何为怯场,而且他对课本内容倒背如流。在课堂上,几乎没有人能问倒他。他甚至能说出答案在课本的哪一页哪一行。

Shang Ke’s mental stats were superb, so he completely did not know what it meant to have stage fright. Plus, he knew the contents of the textbooks by heart. Within the classroom, pretty much no one could stump him. He could even tell them the page and line of the answer in the textbook.

第一堂很成功,

The first class was very successful.

下课后有人突然问:“老师,您现在做了老师,以后还卖不卖盒饭?最近吃不到您的盒饭,简直生无可恋啊!”

After class, someone suddenly asked him, “Teacher, now that you’re a teacher, are you still going to sell lunchboxes in the future? These days I haven’t been able to eat it and I just can’t get it out of my mind!”

这句话立刻得到众人的响应。

Those words immediately obtained everyone’s attention.

尚可说:“谁能将我的课修满分,我就请谁吃豪华大餐。”

Shang Ke said, “Whoever can get full marks in my class, I will treat you to eat a great luxury meal.”

“哦也!”学生们发出一片狼嚎。

“Oh yeah!” The students all cheered.

“豪华大餐。”放学后,缇落在校门口堵到尚可,淡定道,“不知道我有没有这个口福?”

“A great luxury meal.” After school, Tylor suddenly dropped by and calmly asked, “I don’t know if perhaps I would have the chance for it as well?”

“没有。”尚可快步走开。

“No.” Shang Ke quickly left.

缇落亦步亦趋地跟在他身后,一路跟到卡修家。

Tylor blindly followed him until they arrived at Kaiser’s home.

卡修晚上有武术训练,半夜才会回来。尚可去邻居家将泫然欲泣的扑扑接回来,这可怜的小家伙,还以为自己被爸爸抛弃了,憋着眼泪要哭不哭,等见到尚可后,马上就抱着他委屈地哭起来。

Kaiser had martial training at night and would only return at midnight. Shang Ke went to the neighbors house to bring back the crying Pupu. This pitiful little girl thought she was abandoned by father and held back her tears while waiting. When she saw Shang Ke was back, she immediately hugged him and started to cry.

“爸爸,爸爸……”嘴里不停喊着“爸爸”,带着无限控诉。

“Daddy, daddy…” She nonstop called for him, complaining to him.

“乖,不是告诉你了,我晚上就会回来。”尚可摸了摸扑扑的脑袋。

“Good girl, didn’t I already tell you that I would be back home at night.” Shang Ke rubbed Pupu’s head.

扑扑瘪着嘴,将眼泪鼻涕全部擦在尚可的衣服上。

Pupu unhappily looked at him and wiped her tears and mucus on Shang Ke’s clothes.

缇落盯着他们看了半晌,问道:“她是你收养的孩子?”

Tylor stared at them for a while then finally asked, “She was adopted by you?”

奥萨里才离开五年,怎么也不可能生出一个6、7岁的孩子。

Osari had only left for five years so it was impossible for him to have a six to seven year old child.

“嗯。”尚可随意点点头,将扑扑放下,转身去厨房做饭。

“Hm.” Shang Ke didn’t pay much attention to him and just nodded, then put Pupu down to go make their dinner.

扑扑拽着他的衣摆,紧紧跟在他身后。

Pupu held his clothes tightly as she followed behind him.

缇落靠在门边,静静看着尚可在厨房忙碌,脸上没有一丝表情,好像雕塑一般。

Tylor leaned against the door as he quietly watched Shang Ke bustle around the kitchen. His face was expressionless like a statue.

扑扑几次回头看他,只要与他的视线对上,就会立刻藏进尚可身后,只露出一只乌溜溜的大眼睛,偷偷窥视。

Pupu would turned her head to look at him every few moments. As long as their eyes met, she would immediately hide behind Shang Ke and only reveal her watery large eyes sneaking peeks at him.

缇落对小孩子没什么好感,但是他觉得奥萨里和这个孩子在一起的感觉,总让人觉得很舒服。

Tylor did not have a favorable impression of children, but he felt that Osari and this child gave people a comfortable feeling when they were together.

当晚,缇落在尚可家美美地吃了一顿,然后留下十枚金币,便飘然而去。

That night, Tylor ate deliciously at Shang Ke’s home and left behind ten coins and left in a relaxed mood.

等卡修训练结束,累死累活地回到家,发现家里竟然连一点剩饭都没有了……

When Kaiser’s training was over, he returned completely exhausted only to find that there wasn’t any leftovers…

尚可生活开始变得规律而悠闲,白天上课,晚上带扑扑,喂养家犬,偶尔投喂一只野生动物。

Shang Ke’s life started to have a pattern and was carefree. In the daytime he would go to class, at night he would take care of Pupu, feed their dog (Kaiser) and occasionally fed a wild animal (Tylor).

直到三个月后,尚可一直在等待的魔气风暴终于爆发了。魔鬼之树的能量一般很稳定,但在特定的时期,总会爆发一两次魔气风暴,就像火山喷发一般。

Time passed until three months later, the devil qi storm that Shang Ke waited for finally broke out. The Devil’s Tree’s energy was usually very stable, but at special periods of time, it would break out in one or two devil qi storms, like a volcano erupting.

它的辐射范围有大有小,这次却是有史以来最大的一次,几乎覆盖了大陆三分之一的区域,无数人类受到魔气侵体,暴动频发,秩序陷入混乱。普通魔气不会主动侵体,但魔气风暴不一样。因为能量太强,浓度太高,很多无辜的人都没有幸免。

There were differences in their range, though this time was the biggest one in history. It covered almost one third of the continent and countless people were invaded by the devil qi, causing there to frequently be riots and social order fell into confusion. Normal devil qi would not take the initiative to invade a body, but the devil qi storm was different. Because the energy was too strong and the concentration was too high, many innocent people were unable to escape.

帝都王城也在魔气风暴波及的范围内,城内五分之一的人相继出现初期侵体的迹象。

The imperial capital King City was also in the range of the devil qi storm, about one fifth of the population showed the signs of being an initial invaded.

所有神职人员和医者都被召集起来,分出几个治疗区,对侵体者进行集中治疗。

All the clergies and doctors were gathered then separated into groups to treat different areas and focus on treatment for the invaded people.

但是随着侵体人数不断增加,神职人员和医者们根本忙不过来,最后连老师和学生都动员起来。

But with the number of people being invaded constantly increasing, the clergies and doctors simply could not get around to all of it and finally, even the teachers and students were all mobilized.

卡修被分在了东区,负责维持秩序,协助治疗。尚可因为实力弱,所以没有安排任务,留在家里陪扑扑。

Kaiser was sent to the east area to be in charge of keeping order and provide assistance in treatment. Because Shang Ke’s strength was weak, he was not arranged anyway and stayed home to accompany Pupu.

但是,家里也不怎么安全,因为他的邻居突然被魔气侵体了。

However, they were not too safe at home either. Because their neighbor was suddenly invaded by the devil qi as well.

还好邻居只是普通人,尚可并没有花费多少力气,帮他吸收完魔气后,他便恢复了正常,但这一举动却引来了一串接一串的请求治疗的侵体者。

Luckily their neighbor was a normal person so Shang Ke did not use too much strength and helped them by absorbing their devil qi, returning him to normal. But this one action caused the others to come to him and request for treatment.

原因是这位邻居获救之后,不遗余力地帮尚可四处宣传,说他是一位非常厉害的治疗师,拥有神奇的治疗术,天然无痛,是所有被魔气困扰的侵体者们的首选。于是之后几天,陆续有人来找尚可,即便是魔气侵体不严重的人,都跑来凑热闹。

The reason was because after the neighbor was saved, he did his best to spread the news that Shang Ke was a very amazing healer with a miraculous treatment method that did not cause pain. Which therefore made him the first choice for anyone invaded by devil qi. As a result, the days afterward had people come find SHang Ke, even if they were not gravely invaded by devil qi, they would still come over to cause more trouble.

卡修抽空帮尚可赶走了一批没事找事的家伙。

Kaiser found some time to help Shang Ke drive away some people who looking for trouble.

但尚可这个作死专业户,秉持着“牺牲奉献”的圣母原则,来者不拒,吸魔吸得不亦乐乎。等卡修发现不对时,尚可正憋着最后一口气在给一名中度侵体者吸魔。

But Shang Ke, this professional at courting death upheld his holy mother principle of “sacrifice and devotion” and refused no one. Absorbing the devil qi without pause. When Kaiser noticed something was wrong, Shang Ke was holding his breath as he absorbed the last bit from another invaded.

“尚可,够了!”卡修急切地大喊。

“Shang Ke, enough!” Kaiser agitatedly shouted.

这时,缇落刚好带着几名神职人员赶过来,他们一见尚可身体周围魔气缠绕,一只手还紧紧抓着另一个人的手腕,看起似乎准备“行凶”,于是一名神职人员想也没想,举起木杖就朝尚可头上砸去。

At this moment, Tylor just so happen to come over with several clergies. When they saw the devil qi winding around Shang Ke’s body and surroundings, one of his hands still tightly grabbing another person’s wrist, it looked like he was about to “commit a violent crime”. So one clergy didn’t even think and raised his staff to smash at Shang Ke’s head.

“住手!”卡修和缇落同时大喝,却来不及阻止,只能眼睁睁地看着尚可被那名神职人员打倒在地。

“Stop!” Kaiser and Tylor both shouted but they were not able to stop him in time, they could only stare as that clergy smashed Shang Ke into the ground.

尚可只觉后脑一疼,暗叫“不妙”!他想过在这个世界上可能遇到的各种死法,唯一没想到的,就是被人敲闷棍这种一点都不优雅的死法!

Shang Ke only felt a pain at the back of his head and shouted “This is bad!” in his mind. He had thought of many ways that he could die in this world, the only one he didn’t expect was to be hit on the head by someone, this kind of death is not graceful at all!

他意识一阵模糊,随后便陷入了黑暗。

His consciousness went blurred and he soon felt into darkness.

“尚可。”卡修和缇落冲到尚可身边,正要将他扶起来,一旁的神职人员立刻阻止道:“不要碰他,他现在已经是深度侵体,无法治愈了。”

“Shang Ke.” Kaiser and Tylor both rushed over to him, just about to help him up when the clergy by the side immediately stopped them. “Don’t touch him, he’s already at an advance invaded state, he can’t be cured.”

“你懂个屁!”卡修怒骂一声。

“You understand nothing!” Kaiser cursed in rage at him.

神职人员先是懵逼了几秒,随即反应过来,不忿道:“虽然我理解你的心情,但这是我的职责所在,发现深度侵体者,必须立刻处理。”

The clergy was first stupefied for a few seconds, then immediately reactioned and unhappily said, “Although I understand your feelings, but this is my duty. Any people found at the advanced invaded state will be immediately dealt with.

“他不是深度侵体,他是在救人!”卡修见尚可倒在地上一动不动,长发铺满地面,血迹从他的发迹中缓缓渗出,如同绽开了一朵血色之花。卡修感觉一丝恐惧笼上心头,几乎不敢上去确认。

“He is not an advanced invaded person, he’s saving people!” Kaiser saw Shang Ke motionless on the ground, his long hair spread around him on the ground as blood slowly seeped out from him, like a bloody flower blooming. Kaiser felt fear grip his heart and he almost didn’t dare to go up to confirm.

“救人?”神职人员冷哼道,“你在说笑吗?”

“Saving people?” the clergy coldly snorted, “Are you joking?”

“你tmd自己看!”卡修大吼着朝另一边指去。

“You can fucking go take a look yourself!” Kaiser roared at him and pointed at another direction.

众人顺着他指的方向望去,刚才那名被尚可抓着的人已经恢复神智,正茫然地望着众人,见尚可躺倒在地上,忍不住问:“尚可老师怎么了?”

Everyone followed his finger to that person who Shang Ke had been holding to. That person had already returned to normal and stared blankly at everyone, then when he saw Shang Ke on the ground, he couldn’t help but ask, “What happened to Teacher Shang Ke?”

“他刚才想要伤害你。”神职人员说道。

“He wanted to harm you just now.” The clergy said.

“谁说的?”那人怒道,“他救了我的女儿,现在又救了我。”

“Who said that?” The man said in rage, “He saved my daughter and now saved me.”

“救了你?怎么可能?”神职人员不可思议道,“他是一名魔气侵体者。”

“Saved you? How is that possible?” The clergy said in disbelief, “He’s a person invaded by devil qi.”

“他不是,我才是。”那人继续解释道,“他将我身上的魔气都吸走了。”

“He’s not, I’m the one.” That man continued to explain, “He absorbed all the devil qi from my body.”

这句话让所有人全都懵了,再看尚可时,发现他的手还没有松开,但他身上的魔气却没有一丝外泄的迹象,反而被一点点融入他的体内。

Those words all stupefied everyone. When they looked back at Shang Ke, they noticed that his hand was still holding onto the man’s. The devil qi on his body did not show any sign of leaking outward, instead, it was blending into him bit by bit.

“这是怎么回事?”缇落看出蹊跷,转头看向卡修。

“What is going on?” Tylor could see that something strange was going on and turned around to look at Kaiser.

卡修小心翼翼地扶起尚可,脸上没了往日的笑容,沉声道:“你们知道为什么昔日实力超群的奥萨里会变成今天这个身体孱弱的尚可吗?因为他以自身为容器,将别人的魔气吸入自己体内,再用自己的意志镇压。”

Kaiser very carefully helped Shang Ke up, his face no longer had his former smile as he gloomily asked, “Do you all know why the former Osari whose strength was outstanding because the nowadays physically weak Shang Ke? It’s because he used his own body as a vessel to absorb the devil qi within others into his own, then used his own will to suppress it.”

缇落眼中闪过震惊。

Shock flashed through Tylor’s eyes.

其他人也是一脸不可思议。

All the others also held faces of disbelief.

“尚可救人无数,每天都承受着巨大的痛苦,但即便如此,他也没有放弃生存的希望,如今,却死在你的手上!”卡修愤怒地瞪着刚才出手攻击的神职人员,眼中含泪。

“Shang Ke saved countless people and endured the immense pain everyday. But even so, he still did not give up his reason for existence. And now, he died in your hands!” Kaiser angrily glared at the clergy that attacked him, his eyes full of tears.

听到“死”字,缇落的心脏突然紧缩,莫名觉得胸闷,太阳穴阵阵刺痛。

When he heard the “died”, Tylor’s heart suddenly contracted and a strange pain came from his chest along with a stab of pain at his temple.

那名神职人员被卡修看得背脊发寒,反驳道:“我从没听说过哪个正常人会主动将魔气吸入自己体内,这样做的后果只有两个,要么疯狂至死,要么就是堕落为魔鬼使徒。”

That clergy’s back went cold at the look Kaiser was giving to him but he retorted, “I have never heard of any normal person to take the initiative to absorb devil qi into their own body. The consequences of this kind of action will only be two, they either go crazy and die, or fall and turn into a devil apostle.

他不相信有人仅凭意志和信仰就能镇压如此浓厚的魔气。

He did not believe that someone can suppress such dense devil qi with just willpower and faith.

正在这时,一名神职人员从外走进来,表情奇怪地回报:“大人,我带人在附近走访了一下,并没有发现一名侵体者。”

At this moment, a clergy returned from outside, his expression strange as he reported, “My lord, I led around a couple people to check the vicinity but did not find a single person who needs treatment.”

“没有?难道有人谎报消息?”

“None? Did someone report false information?”

“这个……”那名刚刚被治愈的男人开口道,“不好意思,我想事情是这样的,我们这里原本出现了十几名侵体者,情况有轻有重,最后全被尚可老师治好了。我们上报消息时是三天前,要是没有尚可老师,等你们赶到,这里估计早乱成一团了……”

“About that…” That man who had just been cured started to speak. “I’m sorry, I think this is what happened, we originally had around a dozen people who were invaded. Some were serious some were light, but we were all cured by Teacher Shang Ke. It was three days ago when we sent the news, if it weren’t for Teacher Shang Ke, by the time you guys came, we would probably already be in a great mess.”

“你说十几个人,他只用了三天,就全都治好了?”神职人员感到难以置信。换句话说,这个人,在三天内吸收了十几个人的魔气。换做一般人,恐怕早就疯狂了。世上居然有人会用这种自我牺牲的方式来救治别人?这需要极强的意志和信仰之力。

“You said there were a dozen of you but he only used three people to cure all of you?” The clergy could hardly believe it. In other words, this man, in three days, absorbed a dozen of people’s devil qi. If it were a normal person, they would had long gone crazy. There was actually someone in this world that would use such a self-sacrificing way to say others? Just how strong much his willpower and faith be?

“爸爸。”扑扑从角落里走出来,蹲在尚可身边,抓着他冰冷的手,小心地唤道,“爸爸,爸爸。”

“Daddy.” Pupu walked out from a corner and crouched by Shang Ke. She grabbed his ice-cold hand and carefully called for him, “Daddy, daddy.”

尚可躺在卡修怀中,魔气已经全部被吸入体内,他神态安详,脸色白皙,嘴唇鲜红欲滴,就像子夜盛开的昙花。

Shang Ke laid in Kaiser’s arms, the devil qi had already been completely absorbed into his body. His appearance was serene, his complexion white with his lips scarlet and lovely, like an aristolochia flower blooming at midnight.

“爸爸,爸爸。”

“Daddy, daddy.”

寂静的房间内,只听到扑扑一声声焦急的呼唤。

In the quiet room, only Pupu’s anxious calls could be heard.

卡修将耳朵贴在尚可的胸口,只能感觉到稍许余温,却没有心跳。

Kaiser place his ear against Shang Ke’s chest, he could only feel the remaining warmth that held no heartbeat.

他双肩松动,呜咽出声,不敢接受这个事实。那么开朗、那么善良、那么坚强的一个人,居然就这样死了?

His shoulders slacked and started to sob. He did not dare to accept this reality. For such a cheerful, kind and strong person to die just like this?

缇落脸色阴郁,对着身边的神职人员怒喝道:“愣着干什么,赶紧过来救人!”

Tylor’s complexion was gloomy and he raged at the clergy beside him, “What are you still standing around for? Hurry up and save him!”

众人闻言,立刻回过神,手忙脚乱地跑过去救人。

Everyone returned to their senses and flusteredly ran over to save him at his words.

但当他们刚围过去,就见尚可猛地咳嗽一声,从假死状态中复活过来。

But when they had just went over, they saw Shang Ke suddenly cough and return from his suspended state into revival.

卡修欣喜若狂,一抱住尚可。扑扑也扑过去,挂在尚可的手臂上。

Kaiser was wild with joy and hugged him, Pupu also threw herself into Shang Ke’s arms.

缇落长舒一口气,感觉心头阴霾尽散,心跳又回归正常。

Tylor heaved a long sigh of relief as he felt the haze in his heart scatter and his heartbeat returning to normal.

事实上,尚可刚才确实濒临死亡,灵魂都已经出窍了。原本他以为这次任务必定失败,后来突然想起在第一个世界时,自己的身体被冰冻,灵魂也出窍过一次,但是接触到身体后,又被吸了回去。所以他猜测,灵魂只要在短时间内,回到身体,就能复活过来。

In fact, Shang Ke really was on the verge of death, his soul was already out of his body. He originally thought that this mission was destined to be a failure, but then he suddenly remembered how in the first world when his body was frozen and he was also just a soul, he returned to life when he touched his body. So he guessed that as long as the soul return to the body in a short time, then he could revive himself.

于是他尝试了一下,果然顺利回归,至于后面发生的事情,他已经没有力气理会了。

As such, he tried it and really smoothly returned. As for what happened afterward, he did not have the energy to understand.

反正他真正的目的已经达成,那就是让所有人相信,意志和信仰可以镇压魔气,这也是封印魔鬼之树的唯一方法……

Anyway, his real purpose has already been reached, which was to make everyone believe that willpower and faith can suppress devil qi. That this was the only way to seal the Devil’s Tree…

等尚可再次醒来,已经是第二天的中午。

By the time Shang Ke woke up again, it was the afternoon of the next day.

他环视一周,发现自己正身处在一间装饰豪华的卧室中。扑扑躺在自己身边,拽着他的衣袖,睡得正香。

He looked around him and saw that he was in a very luxuriously decorated bedroom. Pupu was lying by his side, holding his sleeve and sleeping sweetly.

尚可坐起身,只感觉浑身酸软无力,大脑阵阵晕眩。

Shang Ke sat up only to feel sore and weak all over. His mind went dizzy.

他又躺了回去,挺尸一般一动不动。

He lied back down, staying motionless like a corpse.

“你醒了。”一个熟悉的声音突然从旁边传来。

“You’re awake.” He suddenly heard a familiar voice from the side.

尚可转头望去,只见缇落穿着一身华服,身姿笔挺地站在床边,正目不转睛地望着他。

Shang Ke turned around only to see Tylor wearing han clothing, standing ramrod straight by his bedside. He stared steadily at him.

“缇落?这是哪里?”尚可用沙哑的声音问道。

“Tylor? Where is this?” Shang Ke used a hoarse voice to ask.

“我的府邸。”缇落回答。

“My mansion.” Tylor answered.

“我怎么会在这里?卡修呢?”

“How am I here? Where’s Kaiser?”

“他没事,你这段时间先住在我的府邸,等外面局势稳定再说。”缇落似在安抚,“魔气风暴很快就会过去。”

“He’s fine, you’re staying at my mansion for now until the situation outside is stabilized.” Tylor placate him, “The devil qi storm will pass by soon.”

“我为什么要住在你的府邸?”尚可继续问。

“Why do I have to live in your mansion?” Shang Ke continued to ask.

“安全。”

“Safety.”

尚可:“……在你这个打败我的对手身边,我怎么可能安全?”

Shang Ke: “…By my rival who has defeated me, how am I supposed to feel safe?”

“我们不一定非要做对手。”

“We don’t have to be rivals.”

“那做什么?”

“Then what are we supposed to be?”

“朋友,战友,或者……”缇落认真道,“恋人。”

“Friends, comrades, or perhaps…” Tylor seriously stated, “Lovers.”

SnowTime: Dun dun dun dunnnnnn…..

      • Some reasons why we urgently need more chapters in these special holidays 😉
        *Carnival/Fat Thursday (making readers happy by feeding us a bunch of chapters to eat-read), *Ash’s day (we gotta read more chapters in order to offer our prayers to MC’s heroic deaths), *Valentines (honoring MC and ML’s love as well as showing readers’ love for the story, the author, the translator by affectionately reading more chapters)…

    • Preference, these tents have the smell of the eventual arrival of chapters and tears shed during previous camping trips. Is it obvious yet that I’m literally checking this page everyday? No pressure to snowy but the camp site is a fun place to hang around in

  9. Thank you for the update Snowy-sama, I can calm my heart now…. for about three days.
    When you announced the chapter earlier today I was sooooo happy, I danced without music while washing the dishes for like, a whole fifteen minutes, my family thought I was crazy. Then I stalked the site for the rest of the day until I fell asleep and only just woke up to see Shang Ke almost die.
    Athough I did practically nothing, I can’t escape the feeling that today was ‘the best day ever’, that kinda feeling.
    Snowy-sama, you are magic in my veins! I look forward to the next update. 🙂

    Kaiser X Shang Ke

    Sweat soaked hair whipped in the wind, their powerful owner racing forward homing in on his haven. Dark eyes glanced at the sun which had only just began to dip under the horizon.

    ‘Good, very good, that pest shouldn’t be done yet!’

    Kaiser dug his heels into the ground, coming to an abrupt stop in front of his home, leaving a huge cloud of dust in his wake. He burst into his home, panting.

    “I…*hah**hah*…I’m Home!” He called out, buckling over to try and soothe the stitch in his side.

    “Ah, Kaiser, you’re back.” The gentle voice warmed his heart and Kaiser looked up.

    Meeting the soft eyes of his housemate, Kaiser straightened. Black hair pulled up in a high tail and slim body clothed in a clean white apron, Kaiser could feel himself being healed by the sight.

    A mischievous smirk danced at the corner of Shang Ke’s mouth at his state.

    “Don’t worry so much Kaiser…Tylor hasn’t shown up yet. And, yes, the food’s ready.” He laughed, turning towards the kitchen.

    Kaiser grinned, his day that much brighter. He sniffed the air, and felt his stomach grumble at the mouth-watering scents wafting from the kitchen. But first…

    Kaiser gently grasped Shang Ke’s hand, stopping him in his tracks.

    Shang Ke turned to look at him again only to have his eyes widen as Kaiser loomed over him.

    Their breaths intermingled for a beat and red quickly suffused Shang Ke’s face.

    His shining eyes were suddenly covered by equally glittering flowers…

    Right! i know it’ll be like this! i just didnt dare to guess! hahhaha!!!
    ML has very tiny possiblity to be the protagonist of the world. The way the protag’s nature is naive, gentle, and not at the best position (literally) yet. so ML must be the greatest person of the world (at the time) and has tsundere and very possessive personality.
    okay, no more tricked by the adorable author again.
