Chapter 3: I Only Need 72 Hours To Fall In Love With You (III)


   “凯奇少爷,刚才只是开胃菜,真正的大餐马上就要到了,你准备好了吗?”查托的声音隐隐带着几分兴奋。

“Young Master Cage, that was just a starter, the real meal will start now, are you ready?” Charlton’s voice carried a faint excitement.

   “上吧,我正饿得慌。”尚可声音沙哑,疲惫的神态让他看起来甚是慵懒,就像一只刚刚睡醒、等着喂食的波斯猫。

“Bring it on, I’m really hungry.” Shang Ke’s voice was hoarse, his exhausted appearance appeared somewhat languid, resembling a Persian cat that had just woken up and was awaiting its food.

   他上衣大敞,露在外面的肌肤,布满灼烧的痕迹和青紫的纹路,脖子、腰腹和手脚,都戴着金属锁扣,眉眼间透出几分隐忍,却不见丝毫畏缩和恐惧。

His upper garment was wide open, revealing his skin that was covered in traces of burns along with purple vein lines. His neck, waist, abdomen, hands and feet were all locked up. His eyes showed forbearance, with no sign of cowerance or fright.

   眼前的情景看起来不像是刑讯现场,反而更像是某种特殊性质的表演,实在是囚室中的男孩太让人惊艳,完全没有受刑后的惨状和丑态。

The scene before him did not appear like an interrogation by torture, rather, it looked like some kind play of a special nature. The boy in the prisoner room was just too stunning, he completely did not have the miserable condition or shameful performance after being exhausted.

   尚可并不知道自己此刻正被数百人围观,在电击的余波过去后,他稍稍恢复一些力气。

Shang Ke did not know that he was being watched by several hundred people right now. After the electric shock, he gained back some strength.

   这时,机械臂末端旋转了几下,然后伸出一束如吸管粗细的激光,闪烁着红色的光芒,还没接触皮肤,就感觉阵阵刺痛。

At this time, the tip of the machine arm rotated and a straw-size laser extended from it, flickering red light. Before it had even touched his kin, he could feel short stabs of pain.

   “再给你一次机会。”那个万恶的中年人声音又在房间响起,“把你知道的信息都交代出来,我们可以考虑饶你一命。”

“I will give you once more chance.” That evil middle-age man’s voice once again echoed in the room, “Give us all the information you have and we can think about letting you live.”

   查托连续问了好几个问题,尚可都是一语不发。

Charlton asked several questions in succession, but Shang Ke did not say a word.

   “既然如此,那就让我们看看你到底能嘴硬多久。”查托悠然道,“我们龙牙帝国的国花是苍穹赤炎,七十二朵花瓣,层层叠叠,有如燃烧的火焰。我想如果在你身上纹上我们龙牙帝国的国花,想必你父亲会非常高兴吧?”

“So be it, we’ll see just how long your mouth stays shut.” Charlton unhurriedly said, “Our Dragon Fang Empire’s national flower is Flaming Red Sky. It has seventy-two flower petals, furl in layers like a burning blaze. I think if we trace Dragon Fang Empire’s national flower on your body, your father would be very happy, wouldn’t you say?”

   变态就变态吧,还找什么借口?想侮辱别人纹什么花,有本事直接纹一坨shi啊!尚可抬起眼,眼中尽是鄙夷,清冷的目光,如寒阳映雪,令人不敢直视。

If you’re a pervert then you’re a pervert, what use is trying to find an excuse? You want to insult people, so why trace some flower, if you have the ability, directly trace a pile of shit! Shang Ke raised his eyes, his eyes full of despise. His clear and cold eyes, like cold fire reflecting snow, caused people to be not dare to look straight at him.

   查托不怒反笑,给操作员下达了执行的指令。

Charlton was not angered, rather, he smiled. He gave the operator an order to continue.

   激光刀移动了几下,对准尚可的右胸,直直刺下,开始在皮肤上一点点勾勒花形,发出嗞嗞的声音。

The laser sword started to move and aimed itself right at Shang Ke’s right chest. Under its piercing, the outline of a flower started to slowly form on his skin, making zhi zhi sounds.

   尚可疼得大叫出声,身体止不住的颤抖,鲜血顺着胸膛流下。头发垂落,遮挡他的眉眼,激光的颜色映入他的眼中,仿佛凝聚成一团火焰,在碧绿的瞳孔中徐徐燃烧。

Shang Ke cried out loudly in pain, his body non-stop trembling as blood flowed down from his chest. His hair hung over his face, sheltering his eyes. The color of the laser entered his eyes, and a fireball seem to slowly burn in his dark green eyes.

   在正常情况下,这种激光纹图一般不会造成多大的伤害,但刑讯者改动了激光的设定,能让人感觉到火烧刀刺般的疼痛。再加上尚可的痛觉被提高了5倍,其中的痛苦可想而知。

Under normal circumstances, this laser drawing shouldn’t bring much harm, but under the interrogator’s alteration of the laser’s settings, it was able to make people feel a burning stab-like pain. With the addition of Shang Ke’s pain being raised by five folds, his pain was obvious.

   汗水很快湿透全身,浸入伤口,更是疼痛难当。中途几次晕过去,又被刺激醒来。

Sweat quickly drenched his body and seeped into his wounds, causing even more pain. Through the process, he had fainted several times but was always reawaken by the pain.

   白皙的皮肤微微泛红,尚可嘴唇轻启,整个人就像苍穹赤炎一般热烈的绽放,燃烧的眼瞳,带着坚定和不屈,美得让人窒息。

A faint blush appeared on his fair skin, Shang Ke’s mouth faintly opened a few times, like he was a Flaming Red Sky Flower that was enthusiastically blooming. His flaming eyes carried his strong will and stubbornness, beautiful enough to make people choke.

   查托提议让众人来观看现场直播,原本是为了试探他们的反应。毕竟刑室内的人是乌特雷的儿子,任何一名义军见到他受此折磨,多多少少会出现一些异常。

Charlton proposed to let everyone watch the live broadcast so that they could sound out their reactions. After all, the person being tortured was Utrecht’s son, any rebellers who see him receive such torment would show some kind of reaction no matter how little.

   但是这个叫凯奇的男孩,在如此折磨下,不但没有丝毫怯懦,反而更显坚强,仿佛正在以自身的血骨和意志,无声地激烈他的同伴:无论有多痛苦,都要坚持下去!

But this Cage boy, not only did he not cower in face of such torment, instead, he stayed even stronger. Like he was using his body and will to silently tell his companions: No matter how painful it is, we must press on!

   试探行动完全失败,因为现场所有人,包括查托自己在内全都出现了异常。心跳加速,血气上涌,呼吸急促……好像发情一样,其中有些人似乎还真TM硬了。

The plan was a complete failure, because every person at the scene, including Charlton himself showed a reaction. Their heartbeat sped up, their blood rushed and their breathing became hard… like they were in heat. A couple among the people had really fucking turned hard.

   纹身持续了十几分钟,机械臂帮尚可清理血迹,喷上止血剂。别以为这样就结束了,接下来还要上色,上色用的材料是一种特殊毒液。

The tattoo continued for dozen more minutes. The machine arm cleaned up the bloodstains on Shang Ke, and blew on some hemostatic medicine. Don’t think that this was over, the coloring still had to be done, and the material of the coloring was a special type of poison.

   查托详细解释了毒液的来源,尚可完全没有听,他现在几乎疼得神经麻木,每一分每一秒都是煎熬,只想赶快结束。

Charlton explained in detail the source of the poison, but Shang Ke did not listen to him at all. He was in so much pain his mind was numb. Suffering pain every second, every minute, all he could think of was to quickly end it.

   炽热的皮肤突然感觉一阵清凉,不等尚可舒口气,又感觉一阵麻痒从右胸处传来,就像无数只蚂蚁在皮肤上啃噬。尚可恨不得将那块皮肤刮下来,比起之前的电击和刚才激光纹身,这种无处发泄的痛苦更让人难以忍受。

His red-hot skin suddenly felt a burst of coolness, before Shang Ke could gasp, he once again felt numbing itch from his right chest, like countless ants were on his skin, gnawing and devouring him. Shang Ke hated how he couldn’t just scrape off that skin, compared to the electric shock and laser tattoo, this kind of pain he couldn’t relieve of himself was even harder to endure.

   苍穹赤炎的纹身逐渐成形,毒液晕染的色彩非常鲜艳,由深到浅,花瓣层层展开,直至左肩才消失。

The Flaming Red Sky Flower tattoo gradually gained shape. The smudges of poison were very bright, some places were darker and others light, layers and layers of petals unfurled and disappeared over his shoulder.

   不得不说,这个世界的刑讯方式不仅方便快捷,而且还很有艺术性。如果受刑的不是自己,尚可或许还会给他们点个赞。

He had no choice to say, this world’s torture interrogation was not only quick, it was very artistic. If the one being tortured wasn’t himself, Shang Ke probably really would had given them some praise over that point.

   在经历了这场仿佛一个世纪之久的折磨后,尚可变得十分虚弱,脑袋无力地靠在椅背上,双眼半合,眼中仿佛蒙上了一层水雾,迷离而忧郁,与胸口绽放的烈焰之花形成两种截然不同的美。

After experiencing this torment that seem to last a century, Shang Ke became very weak, his head powerlessly leaned against the chair, his eyes half closed. A layer of fog seem to have landed on his eyes, blurred and sullen, but created and entirely different beauty with the blooming Flaming Red Sky Flower on his chest.

   正在深思恍惚间,听到查托连续问了他很多问题,他只会重复回答四个字——“我不知道”。

Just while he was absent-minded, he heard Charlton once again ask him a string of questions. He could only repeat three words–”I don’t know.”

   他真的什么都不知道,不要再问了。让他休息一下,清静一下,或者给他喝口水,吃点米粥什么的。

He really didn’t know anything, don’t ask anymore. Let him rest for a moment, enjoy the silence, or give something for him to drink, eat some congee and so on.

   然而,烦人的声音始终在耳边缠绕,不断刺激他的神经。

However, the annoying voice continued to pester on by his ear, irritating him to no end.

   不要说尚可,就是那些观看刑讯的人都觉得口干舌燥。他们随时可以去休息,但尚可不行,他已经连续25个小时没有合眼了,精神疲惫到极点。

Let along Shang Ke, even those who were watching the interrogation felt their mouth go dry. They can take a break whenever they felt like it, but Shang Ke could not. He had already not closed his eyes for twenty-five hours, his mind was beaten to the extreme.

   拉威尔望着视频中的男孩,目光从头到尾都没有移开过,仿佛想将他嵌进自己瞳孔中。

Ravel looked at the boy in the video, he did not move his sight from beginning to end, like he was trying to embedded him into his eyes.

   “将军,午餐时间到了。”卡恩用联络器通知拉威尔。

“General, it’s lunch time.” Kahn used a communication device to notify Ravel.

   “不吃了。”拉威尔淡声道,“下午如果没有急事,不要打扰我。”

“Not going to eat anymore.” Ravel then faintly added, “If there’s nothing urgent happening in the afternoon, don’t disturb me.”

   “……是。”卡恩很想询问刑讯的情况,可惜时机不对,只能暂时压下心中的疑问。

“…Yes.” Kahn really wanted to ask how the interrogation was going, but it was a pity that now wasn’t the time for it, so he could only push down the question in his heart.

   中午陆续有人离开,用餐之后又回到各自的位置,继续观看刑讯。

At noon, people started to leave. After they ate, they would each return to their seat and continue to watch the interrogation.

   这是一场让所有人都不愿意错过的刑讯。他们既惊艳于那个男孩的风采,又想看看他到底能坚持多久。

This was an interrogation that no one was willing to miss. After having their breaths taken away by that boy’s graceful bearing, they wanted to see just how long he could preserve.

   十倍的痛感,这不是一般人能够忍受的,军队训练士兵,也只会启用五倍感知。五倍感知包括听觉、视觉、嗅觉等等,并不单指痛感。但这个男孩承受的却是完完全全的十倍痛感。

Ten times the pain wasn’t something an average person could bear. The military trained soldiers only uses the five times sensitizer. The five times sensitizer only included hearing, sight, smell, etc. it did not include pain. But what this boy was enduring was ten times the pain.

   面对这种折磨,即使是铁汉,恐怕也坚持不了几个小时,但他却足足坚持了一天一夜,这需要怎样强大的意志力和忍耐力?

Facing this kind of torment, even if it was Iron Man, he likely wouldn’t be able to persevere past a few hours. But he was able to endure for a full one day and night, just how great of willpower and fortitude did you need?

   随着时间一点点流逝,众人对男孩的观感,从惊艳猎奇逐渐转变为佩服。

With the slow passing of time, everyone’s impression of the boy turned from having their breaths taken away by the novelty to admiration.

   拉威尔一直到黄昏才回到自己府邸。

Ravel did not return to his mansion until dusk.

   刚走进大厅就见盖布里迎上来,第一句话便是:“拉威尔阁下,我们什么时候撤离?再不走恐怕就来不及了。”

The moment he walked in, he saw Gabriel walk up to greet him. The first thing he said was, “Sire Ravel, when are we withdrawing? If we don’t leave now then I’m afraid we won’t have enough time left.”

   拉威尔对他的话置若罔闻,不紧不慢地将外套交给管家。

Ravel turned a deaf ear to his words, and neither quickly or slowly, took off his coat and gave it to his housekeeper.

   “拉威尔阁下。”盖布里一脸焦急地望着他。

“Sire Ravel.” Gabriel looked at him full of anxiety.

   拉威尔看了他一眼,目色清冷。在几个小时前,他对盖布里还没有什么看法,但见过凯奇后,才感觉有些不舒服。

Ravel gave him a glance, his gaze cold. A few hours ago, he did not have any opinion of Gabriel, but after seeing Cage, he now felt a unwell.

   来到府邸这么久,盖布里没有说过凯奇一句好话,也没有关心过他的生死。那个男孩在刑讯室受尽折磨,也未曾有过丝毫退缩,而他安然处在他的保护下,却时刻不忘逃命。两者对比,高下立显。

Gabriel had been in his mansion for such a long time but had never said one good word about Cage, he also did not care about the others life and death. That boy was suffering through torture yet did not show any sign of shrinking back. Meanwhile, Gabriel was under his protection, yet never forgetting about running away at a moment’s notice. When the two were compared, just who was better was obvious.

   拉威尔生活单调,除了军务之外,对其他事情毫无兴趣。

Ravel’s life was monotonous, besides military affairs, he was not interested in anything else.

   但那个男孩,第一次让他对“美”有了深刻的认识。那样的坚韧不屈,那样的摄人心魄,就像一颗宝石,越是磨砺越是光彩夺目。

But that boy, made him have a new profound understanding of “beauty”. That kind of tenancy and will, that kind of ability to move people, was like a precious stone. The more you polished it the more dazzling it becomes.

   拉威尔觉得,这世上再没有任何事物比他更有资格以“美”为誉。他带给自己的冲击,在他心中留下了难以磨灭的印记。

Ravel felt that there was nothing else in this world that was qualified for him to praise it “beautiful”. The shock he left in his heart turned into an imprint that was hard to erase.

   第二天继续直播,观看人数又多了六七十人。

The second day, the live broadcast continued. The people watching it also increased by around sixty to seventy people.

   时间还剩下31个小时。

There were 31 hours remaining.

   审讯者最初的目的是套取情报,但到后来,他们开始享受施虐的快感。

The interrogator’s original purpose was to obtain information, but afterwards, they started to enjoy torturing him.

   凯奇就像一座宝库,越是深入,越能发现其中的美妙。折磨和痛感,让他看起来更加动人。

Cage was like a treasure house, the deeper they went in, the more beauty they would find. Under torture and pain, he appeared more touching.

   于是,尚可有幸体验了三十六种不同的施虐手段,但他期待的大招并没有出现,那些人似乎更喜欢慢节奏的折磨。

As such, Shang Ke experienced thirty-six kinds of torture methods, but the big attack he was looking forward to didn’t appear. Those people seem to prefer a slow tempo torture.

   唯一庆幸的是,敏感剂的效果在三十小时后就消失了,系统降低50%的痛感,终于让他得以喘口气。那些在外人看来,越来越残忍的手段,对尚可而言,还不如最初的电击和刺青更让他痛苦。

The only thing he could rejoice was that the sensitizer had already lost effect at the thirty hour mark. The System’s 50% pain reduction finally gave him a chance to breathe. To the people outside, even though crueler and crueler methods were being employed, their effects weren’t even as good as the first electric shock and tattooing when it came to Shang Ke.

   距离起事还有20个小时。

There were 20 more hours left.

   尚可的精神几乎到了奔溃的边缘,长时间的虐待和疲劳,让他失去了正常的思考能力,连骂系统的力气都没有了。

Shang Ke’s mind was almost on the verge of breaking down, the long term abuse and fatigue caused him to lose any normal capability to think. He didn’t even have the energy to scold the System.

   以后系统再给他发布这种“坐着也能100%完成的任务”,他一定会毫不犹豫地拒绝!

If the System ever gives him another “mission that can be 100% completed even by sitting”, he will reject it without hesitation!

   他宁愿去打战,去拾荒,去做野人,也不想再“坐着”完成任务了!

He would rather go fight, go collect scraps, go be a caveman. He never wanted to do another “sitting” can complete mission!

   14个小时。

14 hours.

   查托终于发了个大招,利用特殊仪器,将他的四肢骨骼寸寸震断。

Charlton finally used a big attack. He used a special instrument and broke all the bones within his limbs.

   只听到一连串脆响声,从脚踝至膝盖,从指尖指肩胛……而此时,尚可已经发不出任何声音了。

They could only hear a string of cracking noises. From the ankle to the knees, from the fingertips to the shoulder blades… and now, Shang Ke had long lost any ability to make a sound.

   观看视频的人,无不倒吸了一口凉气。

Even the people watching all sucked in a cold breath.

   “凯奇少爷,你真是让我刮目相看。”查托感叹的声音传来,“在这样的严刑拷打下,你居然还能坚持下来。我想就算再继续下去,你也不会招了。既然如此,我决定直接对你使用精神震控。”

“Young Master Cage, you really made me have a whole new level of respect for you.” Charlton’s sighing voice went through, “You can still persevere under this kind of torture. I feel that even if we continued, you would not confess. Since so, I decided to directly use mental shock control.”

   所谓精神震控,即可控制他人的精神,使之听其差遣,效果类似于催眠,但危害性极大。一旦使用精神震控,使用者的思维意识将彻底被磨灭。

The so call mental shock control, was used to control another person’s mind making him listen to their commands. The result was similar to hypnosis, but it was extremely harmful. Once mental shock control was used, the receiver’s consciousness would be thoroughly obliterated.

   尚可垂着头,没有任何反应。

Shang Ke hung his head, showing no reaction.

   拉威尔轻轻握拳,压抑着不让自己露出一丝异样的反应,心里却是翻江倒海。

Ravel faintly held his fist, pushing himself to make sure to not show any reaction. But his mind was in a complete mess.

   再给他一点时间,只要1小时,不,40分钟就行了!

Just give him a bit more time, just one hour! No, even forty minutes would do!

   尚可不知道拉威尔的焦虑,他微微抬起头,想着终于要结束了,脸上不由得露出一个欣慰的笑容。

Shang Ke did not know Ravel’s worry, he raised his head, thinking that everything was finally going to end. A gratified smile couldn’t help but float up on his face.

   查托没想到他现在还笑得出来,感觉自己被轻视了,忍不住冷声问道:“你笑什么?”

Charlton didn’t expect he could still smile and felt like he was scorned. He coldly asked, “What are you smiling for?”

   尚可斜眼望着前面的金属墙壁,他知道审讯者就在墙壁的另一边。

Shang Ke moved his eyes to look at the metal wall before him, he knew that the interrogator was on the other side of this wall.

   既然就快结束了,他决定装最后一把逼,毕竟受了这么久的罪,总得回报一下。

Since everything was about to end, he decided to act powerful one last time. After all, he had received pain for so long, he should at least return the favor.

   他扬起嘴唇,眉眼上挑,原本有些晦暗的眼神,如同被点燃一般,散发出绚烂的光辉,目光如注,直直看着前方,用尽最后的力气,缓慢而坚定地吐出五个字:“克鲁斯,必亡。”

He raised his lips and eyes, the originally faintly dark and gloomy eyes lit up like they had been ignited, spreading out a splendid light. His eyes were so firm as they looked straight ahead. He used up his remaining strength to slowly and firmly spit out three words: “Cruise, will die.”
