第28章 你就是我的信仰

Chapter 28: You Are My Faith (IX)

虽然缇落气势咄咄地告诉卡修,尚可要住在他的府邸,但尚可最后还是兴高采烈地跟着卡修离开了,完全无视缇落那一脸好像被烟熏过的怨气。

Although Tylor told Kaiser in a very imposing manner that Shang Ke was going to stay at his mansion, Shang Ke still left with Kaiser in high spirits. He completely ignored Tylor’s face that was gloomy and sad.

回家的路上,卡修望着身边的青年,五官俊逸,目色如波,一头长长的黑发,倾泻而下,带着丝质的光泽。举手投足间,都透着一种让人心旷神怡的气韵。更重要的是,他品性纯良,心志坚毅,缇落会喜欢上他,似乎并不是什么奇怪的事情。

On the way back home, Kaiser looked at the youth beside him. Handsome features, rippling eyes, a head of long black hair that flowed down his back with a bit of silky luster. His every action carried a very spiritual and harmonious flavor. What was even more important was that his nature was very pure, and his will firm. For Tylor to fall in love with him, did not seem strange at all now.

“怎么了?”尚可偏头看向卡修。

“What’s wrong?” Shang Ke turned him head toward him.

扑扑也偏头看向他:怎么了?

Pupu also turned to look at him: What’s wrong?

“没,没什么。”卡修连忙收回视线,刚才那一眼,让他心跳有些加速。原本打算询问他和缇落的关系,结果却怎么也问不出口。但是只要想到尚可有一天会和缇落在一起,他就觉得有些心塞。

“No-nothing.” Kaiser immediately took back his sight. That one look caused his heartbeat to speed up a bit. He had originally wanted to ask about his relationship with Tylor, but he didn’t ask anything in the end. But as long as he thought about how Shang Ke would be together with Tylor one day, his heart would feel stuffy.

事实上,缇落和他一样心塞,眼睁睁地看着自己喜欢的人跟着另外一个男人走了,心情怎么也美好不起来。

In fact, Tylor’s heart was as stuffy as his. Watching with his own eyes as the man he liked left with another man, his mood wouldn’t become better no matter what.

不等他们理清各自的感情,大陆各国纷纷响应圣雅帝国的号召,同意参与封印魔鬼之树的行动。

The world did not wait for them to settle their feelings though, every country of the continent responded to the Holy Empire’s call and agreed to participate in the sealing of the Devil’s Tree.

任务既定,封印启程。

With the mission set, they started on their journey to seal the tree.

勇士们摩拳擦掌,准备前往沼泽深渊。

The warriors all prepared themselves to leave for the abyss of the marsh.

所有人都不知道这次封印行动有多危险,虽然不知道具体人数,但尚可记得最后深入腹地的人几乎全军覆没。即便只是进入边缘区域,也是损失惨重,活着的人大多都留下了心理阴影。以至于第二次行动时,人数足足少了三分之二。

Everyone did not know just how dangerous this sealing operation was, although he did not know exactly how many people there were, Shang Ke remembered that almost everyone was killed in the end. Their loss was disastrous even when they had merely entered the edge of the place. The people that managed to survive pretty much all have mental shadows. The second time of the operation, two-thirds of the people were lost.

所以对于这次行动,尚可并没有多少把握,他只能尽量将当初坚持到最后的勇士们集中在一起,利用自己吸取魔气的优势,一路护卫他们抵达深渊腹地。

As such, Shang Ke did not have much assurance of this operation. He could only centralize all of the final warriors that managed to last until the end and make use of his advantage in absorbing devil qi to protect them until the interior of the abyss.

这次缇落也加入了卡修的队伍,与他们一起行动。尚可另外还向缇落要了两个人,一个是之前挑衅过他的卫队长马克斯,一个是园艺师辛比。

This time, Tylor joined Kaiser’s group and operated with them. Shang Ke had also asked for two other people from Tylor, one was the Guard Captain Max that had provoked him before, the other was the horticulture master, Simbi.

找马克斯还能理解,但是园艺师是什么鬼?缇落和卡修都表示无法理解。

Finding Max they could understand, but what the heck was a horticulture master? Tylor and Kaiser both express their inability to understand.

尚可说:“信仰之力是不分高低贵贱的,而且封印魔鬼之树需要不同的信仰,所以种类越多越好。”

Shang Ke said, “One’s social status does not say anything about their power of faith, plus, sealing the Devil’s Tree needs different kinds of faint. So the more kinds there are the better.”

那也不用非得选一个园艺师啊!不是看不起园艺师这种职业,而是眼前这位实在太让人崩溃!他上身穿着衬衫皮夹,下身穿着一条草裙,脚上还踏着一双草靴!整一个行为艺术的疯子好吗?

Then he doesn’t have to choose a horticulture master! It’s not that they look down on that occupation, rather, the one before them was too sad! He wore a shirt and jacket on his upper body while his lower body wore a grass skirt, his feet also wore grass boots! Was this kind of artistic madman really good?

有他加入,整支队伍的画风都不对了!

With his participation, the entire style of the group became wrong!

不过在尚可的据理力争下,众人还是勉强同意了。这支队伍最后一共二十三人,其中还包括卡修的同伴艾米、薇多拉、费雷德、游伊和杜鲁,剩下的大多是缇落的人。

But under Shang Ke’s strong argument, everyone still agreed with much difficulty. The group altogether got twenty-three people, among them were also Kaiser’s companions Amy, Vadula, Fred, Youri and Duro. The remaining people were mostly Tylor’s men.

众人整理好行装,在约定的时间,结伴启程。

Everyone organized their baggage and set out at the arranged time.

一路上有意与辛比拉开距离,只有尚可毫不在意。这些外描协会的无知大众,不会想到这位园艺师是两次封印心动中,第一个抵达深渊中心的强人,而且也是最后活着回来的五勇士之一。

On the way, they intentionally placed some distance between Simbi, only Shang Ke did not care. These people who only judged people by their appearances would never think that this hortcultural master was a powerful man that had went on two sealing operations and was the first to arrive at the center of the abyss. Plus, he was also one of the five warriors that returned alive in the end.

他信仰的是“自然”,虽然行为和审美是古怪了一点,但心理素质估计比在场所有人都强。嗯,脸皮厚度也是。

His faith was in “nature”. Although his actions and esthetics was a bit eccentric, his mental quality was stronger than everyone here. Hm, the thickness of his face too.

“尚可,你编制的这个真不错,教教我吧。”辛比看着尚可给扑扑编的螳螂,两眼放光。

“Shang Ke, this weave of yours is really nice, teach me.” Simbi looked at the weave Shang Ke gave Pupu, his eyes bright.

“好啊。”尚可笑着答应。

“Sure.” Shang Ke smiled and agreed.

两个风格完全不同的人,相处竟然诡异的融洽。

Two people with completely different styles somehow interacted so harmoniously it was a bit strange.

缇落白天只是看着,晚上就会把他和扑扑带进自己的帐篷。卡修每次搭帐篷都碍着他们,以便随时留意里面的动静。只要发现什么不对劲,他就会冲过去。

Tylor only watched in the daytime, at night he would pull him and Pupu into his tent. Kaiser would make his tent somewhere near to obstruct them every time, so that he could take note of any activity within. As long as he notices that something was wrong, he would immediately rush in.

不过有扑扑在,缇落再怎么想,也不会真的对尚可做什么。

But with Pupu around, no matter what Tylor thought, he wouldn’t really do anything to Shang Ke.

前几天都很平静,并没有什么意外发生。途中也遇到了不少队伍,有的比较友好,有的比较疏离,大家都保持着不远不近的距离,一起朝目的地前行。

The first few days were very peaceful and nothing unexpected happened. On the way they had met many other groups, some were rather friendly, others were alienated. Everyone maintained a rather not too close or too far distance from each other and made for the same destination.

直到第六天傍晚,众人在距离沼泽深渊边缘不到三十里的地方,发现了一地尸体,几天的平静终于被打破。

But on the sixth day, at a distance not even thirty meters from the edge of the abyss, they found a dead body. The several days of peace finally broke.

死者将近有五十人,死状惨烈,血迹似乎都还没有干透。

There were about fifty people dead, the way they died was very tragic, the blood hasn’t even dried yet.

“应该是一群魔鬼使徒干的,对方实力很强,下手毫不留情。”侍卫查看后回报。

“It should be done by a group of devil apostles, the strength of the other part was very strong and was very ruthless.” The imperial guard investigated then reported back.

缇落皱了皱眉,并没有多说什么,只是提醒众人小心。

Tylor wrinkled his brows and did not say much, he just reminded everyone to be careful.

几队人马又行进了几里路,才在入夜前止步安营。

The group of people advanced a couple more meters and finally stopped to make their camp before nightfall.

晚上,万籁俱寂,只有夜风呼呼地刮着。

That night, there was not a sound to be heard beside the scrapping of the wind.

这时,原本闭目养神的缇落突然睁开眼,悄然钻出帐篷,与他一起出来的,还有卡修和马克斯等人。

At this moment, the originally sleeping Tylor suddenly opened his eyes and quietly made his way out of his tent. Other people that came out with him was Kaiser and Max.

几人刚准备做出警示,营地就遭到了袭击。

They were just about to sound a warning when the camp suffered an attack.

尚可被一阵噪杂声吵醒,他快步走到营帐边,掀开一条缝隙朝外面望去,只见缇落等人正与一群偷袭者打得激烈。

Shang Ke was awaken by the clamor and he quickly walked to the entrance of the tent and raised a small bit to take a look outside. What he saw was Tylor and the others fighting the sneak attackers intensely.

正看得入神,一颗小脑袋突然伸过来,差点伸到帐篷外面去。尚可连忙将扑扑扒进怀里,小声叮嘱:“乖乖待在这里,不要跑出去知道吗?”

He was just about to be entranced by the side when a small head suddenly popped over and almost went out the tent. Shang Ke promptly pulled Pupu into his arms, quietly warning her, “Obediently stay here, don’t run out okay?”

扑扑见尚可神色严肃,小脸上也露出凝重的表情,连连点头,窝在他怀里一动不动。

Pupu saw Shang Ke’s grave expression and also made a grave expression, nodding her head repeatedly as she stayed motionlessly in his arms.

尚可一边抱着扑扑躲在帐篷里,一边紧张地留意外面的动静。

While Shang Ke held Pupu in the tent, he was also nervously mindful of the activity outside.

他现在是个多走几步都会喘的病弱体,最好还是老实待在角落,不出去添乱了。他相信以卡修的“主角”光环和缇落的实力,对付几十个下级使徒还是不成问题的。

He was now a weak person who would gasp for breath every few steps, it was best he just honestly stayed in the corner and not go out to cause trouble. He believed it wouldn’t be a problem for Kaiser, with the “main character” halo along with Tylor’s strength, to handle a dozen low ranking apostles.

“昆西,那边。”缇落的喊声突然传入尚可的耳中。

“Quincy, over there.” Tylor’s shout sudden transmitted to Shang Ke’s ear.

昆西?尚可脸色微变,这不就是当初谋害缇落的那个叛徒吗?

Quincy? Shang Ke’s face changed, wasn’t that the traitor that plotted against Tylor before?

奇怪,队伍里的人他都认识,明明没有叫“昆西”的人啊。

So strange, he knew all the people in the group, there wasn’t a “Quincy” in them.

尚可掀开帐篷,朝那边看去。

Shang Ke raised the tent cover and looked over there.

原来是他,缇落身边的侍卫长昆柯斯,“昆西”应该是他的小名。

So it was him, the imperial guard by Tylor’s side, Jacques (Zhangkunkesi), “Quincy(Kunxi)” should be his nickname.

幸好发现得早!不然尚可很可能会错失挽救缇落的机会。在原本的发展中,缇落死亡的真相,到最后都是一个谜。所有人都不知道帝国的二王子,曾经名动一方的缇落竟然是死在自己最信任的朋友兼亲卫的手中。

He fortunately found out early! Otherwise, Shang Ke would very likely miss the chance to save Tylor. In the original plotline, the truth of Tylor’s death remained a mystery. No one knew that the second prince of the empire, the once famous Tylor had unexpectedly died in the hands of his most trusted friend.

光颂学院双星,一个死于非命,一个投身黑暗,不得不说这是一个莫大的悲剧。

The double stars of Light Ode College, one died an unnatural death while the other threw himself into the darkness. He had to say, this was a great tragedy.

但尚可来了,他绝不会让悲剧重演。

But since Shang Ke came, he would not allow tragedy to repeat itself.

正在这时,突然听到“撕拉”一声,帐篷被一把利刃划开,剑尖距离尚可不过十几公分。

Right at that moment, he suddenly hear a tearing sound. The tent was torn open by a sharp blade and was not even ten centimeters from Shang Ke.

尚可连忙抱着扑扑后退几步,这几秒时间,帐篷又被划开好几道缺口。

Shang Ke quickly held Pupu and retreated a couple steps, in those few seconds, several more gaps were torn into the tent.

尚可皱眉,体内魔气涌动,眼中光华闪烁,身上属于王级使徒的威压骤然爆发。

Shang Ke frowned, the devil qi in his body fluctuated and his eyes flickered. The oppressing pressure of a King level apostle suddenly erupted from his body.

一名偷袭者似乎发现了尚可的存在,刚准备冲击帐篷,却被这股威压震得差点栽倒。

One of the attackers seem to have noticed Shang Ke’s existence and was just about to attack the tent, but was almost felled by the oppressing pressure.

因为尚可这段时间吸收了大量魔气,所以他身上王级使徒的威压并没有消失,反而更有唬人的效果。

Because Shang Ke had absorbed a large amount of devil qi in this time period, the King level apostle’s pressing might did not disappear, rather it grew even stronger.

那名偷袭者心中大骇,连退数步,再也不敢接近帐篷。

That attacker’s heart was greatly startled and retreated many steps, he no longer dared to approach that tent.

缇落和卡修原本见偷袭者接近尚可所在的帐篷,都已经做好了救援的准备,谁知道那家伙好像杂耍一样,扑着上去,弹着回来,好像看到了什么可怕的东西。

Tylor and Kaiser both made their preparations to save Shang Ke when they saw that guy approach his tent. But god knows what kind of show was that guy giving, he threw himself forward then shot back out like he saw something terrifying.

缇落等人自然不会手软,趁机把他送进了地狱。

Tylor and the others naturally would not show mercy and took the chance to send him to hell.

“尚可,你们没事吧?”缇落挡在帐篷前,回头朝里面看去。

“Shang Ke, are you guys alright?” Tylor got to the tent and looked inside.

“没事。”尚可问道,“外面情况怎么样?”

“We’re fine.” Shang Ke asked, “How is the situation outside?”

缇落环视一圈,回道:“已经解决了。”

Tylor took a look around then replied, “It’s already settled.”

偷袭者全部被消灭,众人开始清理现场。

The attackers were all annihilated so everyone started to clean up the scene.

尚可这才抱着扑扑走出帐篷。

Only now did Shang Ke leave the tent while carrying Pupu.

扑扑见到这种血腥的场面,并没有露出害怕的表情。这一点,尚可早就发现了,扑扑的智力虽然比一般小孩低,但或许正因如此,她对死亡毫无所惧。

Pupu did not show a frighten expression at the bloody scene. This bit, Shang Ke had discovered long ago. Although Pupu’s intelligence was a bit lower than the usual child, but perhaps of that she did not fear death at all.

她的世界很单纯,只有喜欢和不喜欢,没有世俗认知的好与坏。

She world was very simple. She only had likes and dislike, there was no cognition of good and bad.

不过多时,附近另外两个营地分别走出几个人,找到缇落,相互交流了一下对偷袭者的看法,最后决定将几支队伍合并起来。统一管理,方便集中力量应对接下来的危机。

But not long after, a couple people from two other camps came to find Tylor and exchanged their opinions on the attack. In the end, they decided to merge their groups. With the united management, it made it more convenient to focus their power in response to the following crisis.

“缇落大人,这位是?”一名身材健美的女战士朝一旁的尚可望去,眼中饶有兴味。

“Lord Tylor, this is?” A fit and beautiful female fighter looked in Shang Ke’s direction, her eyes full of interest.

“奥萨里。”缇落将手搭在他的腰后,明明是很寻常的举动,却好像在宣告主权。

“Osari.” Tylor place his hand on his waist, it was a very common action, yet it looked like he was declaring sovereignty.

女战士是个粗神经,完全没理解其中的深意,径直对尚可说道:“这几天我看你们营地的伙食都是你准备的,香气实在太勾人了,不知道以后方不方便为我们提供一些,我们会付钱的。”

The female fighter was a crude one, she completely did not make out the deep meaning within and said to Shang Ke, “I saw that the food in your camp was all made by you these past few days and the smell is really tempting. I don’t know if you can offer some to us in the future, we can pay for it.”

“没问题。”尚可笑着答应,“只要你们不嫌弃。”

“That’s fine.” Shang Ke agreed with a smile, “As long as you guys don’t mind it.”

“不嫌弃,相当不嫌弃。”他们闻着别人的饭香已经食不下咽好几天了好吗?!

“We don’t mind it, we don’t mind it at all.” They had already smelled the other’s delicious food for several days alright?!

另一支队伍的队长对尚可却颇为防备,眼中透着探究。

The captain of another group was rather wary against Shang Ke, in his eyes was inquiry.

第二天,一行人继续上路,下午便进入沼泽深渊的地界。这里的魔气明显比其他地区浓郁许多,众人顿时感觉无比压抑,每个人的表情看起来都是那么苦大仇深,只有尚可、扑扑和那位园艺师一如平常。

The next day, the group of people continued their journey and entered the abyss of the marsh by afternoon. The devil qi here was clearly richer than other places and everyone immediately felt incomparably oppressed, everyone’s expression looked very resentful and bitter. Only Shang Ke, Pupu and that horticultural master were like usual.

在沼泽深渊的第一个晚上,没有人能睡得着,即使强迫自己睡着,也会在噩梦中惊醒。

In the abyss of the marsh, no one was able to sleep the first night. Even if they forced themselves to fall asleep, they would be roused by nightmares.

队伍中的气氛变得异常紧绷,各种负面情绪纷至沓来,挡也挡不住。

The atmosphere in the group became very tight, all sorts of negative mood came thick and fast, they couldn’t resist it.

正在这时,几个断断续续的音符在黑夜中响起,随后如串珠一般串连在一起,化作一首清脆悦耳的曲子。

Just at that moment, a discontinuous sound of notes sounded, soon after was a string of notes together that turned into a melodious and sweet music.

帐篷里的人陆续走出来,朝曲子的来源望去。

The people in the tent took turns leaving, heading for the source of the music.

一名身着长袍的男子,盘膝坐在火堆边,手上拿着竖琴,轻轻弹奏。他有一头黑色长发,直直垂洒在地毯上,神色温柔,眼中映着火焰的光辉,手指的音符在寂静的夜晚跳跃舞动,仿佛魔法一般,将周围的魔气全部被驱散,众人心中压抑的情绪也随之缓和,刚才凝重的气氛,不知不觉,烟消云散。

One man wearing a robe sat cross legged at the fire. In his hands was a hard, he gently played it. His long black hair scattered on the blanket on the ground, his expression gentle and the light of the fire glowed in his eyes. His fingers danced across the strings in the quiet night like magic, scattering the devil qi in the surroundings. Everyone’s stifled mood all eased, the heavy atmosphere unwittingly vanished like smoke.

SnowTime: Finished at 1:09 AM… zzzz……

    I feel so peaceful reading this, but at the same time busting with excitement!

    It’s a bit different to read a bl- bible (more fun) but I can also feel the holiness and the faith of all the other readers.

    Translater- sama, your kinda like Jesus.

    Many believers pray to you for holly scriptures and more bl power, for more faith.
    Translater- sama, can you feel the power you hold In your hands?
    Do you, like the bl God, get stronger when the believers rise in numbers?

    Thank you translated-sama, for your hard work and for all the holly scriptures.
    I will pray for your health and success!

    (You can tell me if it is something you rather want me to pray for, like winning the lottery of finding a lover or not gaining weight when stuffing oneself with cake late at night.. )
