Chapter 4: I Only Need 72 Hours To Fall In Love With You (IV)


   查托愤怒地启动了精神震控装置。尚可只觉得大脑一痛,便失去了意识。与此同时,房间骤然陷入一片漆黑。

Charlton angrily started the mental shock control equipment. Shang Ke only felt pain from his head, before he lost consciousness. At the same time, the room suddenly entered complete darkness.

   众人骚动起来,完全不知道发生了什么事情。他们没有注意,黑暗中,十几人趁着混乱悄然离开了房间。

Everyone became restless, they completely did not know what happened. They did not notice that in the dark, over a dozen of people were using the confusion to quietly depart the room.

   战斗的号角,无声地吹响!

The bugle horn of battle, was silently blown at this time!

   凯奇所遭受的折磨,并未让那些心怀信念的义士们感到畏惧,反而激起了熊熊战意。他们的目光,如同一团团炽热的火焰,在黑暗中熠熠生辉。

The torment Cage was suffering did not make those rebellers who held faith feel fear, instead, it aroused their raging will to fight. Their gaze were like blazing hot fires, glistening and dazzling in the darkness.

   克鲁斯,必亡!

Cruise, will die!

   这五个字,在众人心中,汇聚成一股巨大的力量,如蓄势待发的猛兽,随时准备吞噬一切邪祟。

These three words would converge into a great power among everyone’s heart. Like a ferocious beast waiting for action after accumulating power, they were prepared to swallow all evil at any moment.

   尚可的出现和坚持,不但在一定程度上转移了监控者的注意,也让义军的信念更加坚定,促使他们提前五个小时夺得了智脑的控制权。而这些,他全然无知。

Shang Ke’s emergence and perseverance not only caused the monitorer’s attention to shift to an extent, it also allowed the rebellers belief to hold firmer. The result was that they worked five hours earlier to take control of the intellectual brain. Meanwhile, the person in question was completely ignorant of it.

   革命行动如狂风骤雨,迅猛地席卷整个统治阶层。

The revolutionary operation was like a gale shower, quickly and violently engulfing the whole regime’s hierarchy.

   等拉威尔控制局势,已经是7个小时之后。

By the time Ravel took control of the situation, it was seven hours later.

   他亲自来到刑讯室,毫不顾忌尚可身上的污渍,小心地将他抱出这间让他受尽折磨的囚牢。

He personally went to the interrogation room and without care about the stains on Shang Ke’s body, he carefully held and took him out of this prisoner room that had tormented him enough.

   尚可手脚的骨骼全部断裂,身上血迹斑斑,皮肤无一完好,唯有胸口那朵苍穹赤炎,还在妖冶的绽放着,仿佛带着魔力,让人无法移开视线。

The bones within Shang Ke’s limbs were completely broken and his body bloodstained. There wasn’t anywhere where the skin was intact, only that Flaming Red Sky Flower continued to bloom devilishly on his chest. Like it carried some kind of power to enchant others, people were unable to move their gazes away.

   士兵们看到他这一身惨烈的伤痕,全都露出震惊和佩服的神色,实在无法想象他到底遭受了怎样的虐待,又是如何坚持下来的?

When the soldiers saw his entire body full of tragic injuries, they all revealed an expression of shock and admiration. They were really unable to imagine just what kind of suffering he had went through, and just how he persevere on.

   昏昏沉沉中,尚可感觉有很多人在自己身边忙碌穿梭,似乎正在进行抢救。他很想说别忙活了,让他愉快地去吧。

Within his dim consciousness, Shang Ke felt a lot of people moving around by him. It felt like they were trying to save him. He really wanted to tell them to don’t worry about it, let him go happily.

   思索间,意识又陷入朦胧,耳边隐隐听到有人在说话。

While in his thoughts, as his consciousness began to grow hazy again, he heart a faint voice by his ear.

   “他的情况怎么样?”拉威尔看向班尼医生。

“How is his situation?” Ravel looked toward Doctor Banny.

   班尼医生叹道:“断裂的骨骼可以慢慢修复,虽然会影响日常生活,但至少不会完全瘫痪。真正麻烦的是他体内的生物毒素。如果只有一两种,我们还有办法救治,但足足十二种……我只能说,他现在还活着,本身就是一个奇迹了。”

Doctor Banny replied with a sigh, “His broken bones can slowly heal, although it will have some influence on his daily life, at least he will not be completely paralyzed. What is truly troubling is the venom within his body. If it was just one or two types, then we would had have some means to help. But for twelves types…I can only say, the fact that he is still alive now is a miracle already.

   拉威尔沉声问:“他还有多少时间?”

Ravel asked in a lower voice, “How much time left does he have?”

   “也许明天,也许后天,总之,不会太久了。”

“Perhaps tomorrow, perhaps the day after. In short, it won’t be long.”

   拉威尔沉默了许久,开口道:“尽量想办法减轻他的痛苦,让他这几天过得舒服点。”

Ravel turned silently before ordering, “Try any means to lighten his pain, so that he can live comfortably these few days.”

   班尼苦笑道:“这个我恐怕没办法。以他现在的身体状况,就算是最轻的麻药,也有可能会要了他的命。剩下的时间,他只能继续承受这些病痛。”顿了顿,他又道,“我建议,还是让他去吧。比起痛苦的活着,死亡对他才是一种解脱。”

Banny bitterly smiled, “I’m afraid that there is nothing I can do on that part either. With his current body condition, even if it was the lightest anesthetic, it can possibly take his life. The remaining time, he can only continue to bear this pain.” After pausing a bit, he continued again. “I propose that we let him go. Compared to living in pain, death would freedom for him.”

   拉威尔眼中闪过一丝沉痛,说道:“他坚持到现在,不是为了死亡,而是为了亲眼见证克鲁斯的灭亡。所以,无论有多痛苦,我相信他也不会选择无知无觉的离开。”

A flash of grief flitted through Ravel’s eyes, he told him, “He persevered up to now was not for death, but to see with his own eyes, the destruction of Cruise. As such, no matter how painful it is, I believe that he will not choose to leave without knowing the ending.”

   这句话若让尚可听到,必然会大呼:不,我完全没有兴趣见证克鲁斯的灭亡,求速死!

If Shang Ke were able to hear those words, he would certainly cry out loudly: No, I have zero interest in witnessing Cruise’s destruction. Give me a fast death!

   班尼想到凯奇的遭遇,也认同了拉威尔的话。

When Banny thought back to Cage’s bitter experience, he agreed with Ravel’s words.

   “若是如此,阁下,你就要抓紧行动了,争取让凯奇少爷在死前,见到一个全新的帝国。”

“If so, then Sire, you must work quickly. Fight for before Young Master Cage dies, that he can see a new empire.”

   拉威尔点点头,留下一句“照顾好他”,便大步离开了。

Ravel nodded his head and left behind a line to “Take good care of him”, then left with large strides.

   尚可再次醒来时,发现自己正躺在一间宽敞明亮的病房中,伤势已经被妥善处理过,全身包着绷带,除了脖子,其他部位都无法动弹。

When Shang Ke once again regained consciousness, he found himself lying in a brightly lit and spacious sick room. His injuries were already take care of, therefore causing his whole body to be wrapped in bandages. Besides his neck, he wasn’t able to move anything else.

   他居然还没死?尚可震惊了。难道任务没完成?!

He actually isn’t dead yet? Shang Ke was shocked. Don’t tell him that the mission isn’t complete?!

   【任务已完成,本次滞留时间15天。】系统的声音在他脑中响起。

【Mission Completed. Detained time is 15 days.】 The System’s voice echoed in his mind.

   为什么还要滞留15天?

Why was he detained for another 15 days?

   【只要宿主在赴死任务中存活,系统都会给予不同的滞留时间。在这段时间内,有可能遇到新的任务,每多完成一个,奖励就会相应提高。若完成三次赴死任务而未死,宿主就可以选择留在当前世界,不受任何限制地挥霍人生。】

【As long as Host survives the near-death mission, System will give different amounts of detained time. In this time frame, it is possible to come across more missions. For every extra mission completed, the reward will be accordingly raised. If Host completes three near-death missions and still do not die, then Host can choose to stay in the current world with neither responsibilities or restrictions and live life as Host pleases.】

   他是有多想不开才会拖着这具半瘫痪的身体,选择留在这个世界挥霍人生?人生挥霍他还差不多!况且要完成三次赴死任务啊,一次就让他欲仙欲死了,还三次?

Just how depressed must he be to drag this half paralyzed body to choose to live freely in this world? Life freeing him should be more appropriate! Moreover, he had to complete three near-death missions. Just once already made him wish he was dead, he had to do it three times?

   “你醒了。”这时,一个低沉的声音打断了尚可的思绪,随即就见一名高大的男子缓步走到床边。

“You’re awake.” At this moment, a low voice interrupted his train of thought. Immediately following that voice, he saw a tall man slowly walking to his bedside.

   “你好,我是拉威尔。”男子表情冷峻,眼神却异常平和。

“Hello, I’m Ravel.” The man’s expression was grave and stern, but his eyes were very gentle.

   尚可朝他点点头,在系统的提醒下,知道他就是这个世界的主角,未来帝国的首领。

Shang Ke nodded toward him. Under the System’s reminder, he found out that this was this world’s main character, the future boss of the empire.

   拉威尔坐在床边,说道:“我们已经取得了胜利,剩下的时间,将逐一清理克鲁斯的残余势力。”

Ravel sat by his bedside and told him, “We have already acquired victory. The remaining time will be used to clear up Cruise’s remaining power one by one.”

   尚可笑了笑,表示很好,说明哥的罪没有白受,请不要大意地扫荡吧。

Shang Ke smiled, expressing he was very pleased. Explaining that this bro did not recieve torture for nothing, and please don’t be careless while wiping them out.

   他张开嘴正要说话,却发现自己的喉咙竟然发不出声音。

When he opened his mouth to speak, he discovered that his throat was unable to produce any sound.

   拉威尔见状,解释道:“你的声带严重受损,短时间恐怕都发不出声音了。”

Ravel explained to him when he saw that, “Your vocal cords suffered grave damage. I’m afraid you won’t be able to make any sound for the time being.”

   班尼医生的原话是:“那句‘克鲁斯,必亡’,是这孩子这辈子所能发出的最后的声音。”

What Doctor Banny told him was: “That sentence ‘Cruise, will die’ is this child’s final words in this life.”

   拉威尔说完后,静静望着床上的男孩,发现他并没有想象中的害怕和难受,反而朝他露出了一个温和的笑容。虽然面容憔悴,但那双碧绿的眼眸中,闪烁的却是宝石般的光采。

After Ravel told him, he quietly observed the boy on the bed, discovering that there wasn’t any of the fear and pain he was expecting. Instead, he gave him a gentle smile. Although his appearance was haggard, those dark green eyes flickered like precious stones.

   拉威尔眼神微暗,用从未有过的柔和声音说道:“凯奇,以后我会亲自照顾你,请再等我几天,我一定让你看到一个全新的帝国。”别那么急着离开这个世界,留下来与他一起分享这份喜悦。

Ravel’s eyes dimmed darker, and used a gentle voice he had never used before to tell him, “Cage, I will personally take care of you in the future. Please give me a couple more days, I will definitely let you see a brand new empire.” Don’t leave this world so quickly yet, stay behind and share this happiness with him.

   尚可除了点头,还能说什么呢?作为主角,统治世界这种小事,还不是手到擒来?

Besides nodding his head, what else could Shang Ke do? As the main character, such a trifle matter like ruling the world, isn’t it just a stretch of his hand to grab it?

   之后的时间,拉威尔果然言出必行,无论有多忙,每天都会抽出3、4个小时来陪尚可,换药,喂饭,清洁等等,全都做得妥妥帖帖。

The time afterward, Ravel really followed his words to the extreme. No matter how busy he was, he would always take out three to four hours of his time to accompany Shang Ke, change his bandages, feed him, clean him, etcetera. He did everything very carefully and properly.

   其实尚可有些不明白,虽说他在刑讯时的表现还算可圈可点,但也不至于让这位未来国首如此重视吧?

Actually, Shang Ke didn’t understand it a bit. Although he showed a rather remarkable side under the torture, it wasn’t enough for the future boss of this empire to value him so much right?

   尚可并不知道自己现在已经成为整个帝国的英雄,他在刑讯室的视频,惊艳了无数人,被誉为“世界上最美的殉道者”。他以其顽强的意志力,在敌人残忍的折磨下,坚守了自己的信念。

Shang Ke did not know that he had already became this entire empire’s hero. His interrogation video stunned countless people and became praised as the “The World’s Most Beautiful Hero (someone who dies for a just cause)”. His tenacious willpower, holding tightly onto his belief even under the enemy’s cruel torment.

   特别是最后那句“克鲁斯,必亡”,不知道激起了多少人的热血。

Especially that last line of “Cruise, will die”. Who knows just how many people’s hot blood were raised by that line?

   他就像一只浴火凤凰,尽管伤痕累累,却依然百折不挠。

He was like a Phoenix bathing in fire, despite being riddled with injuries, he would still keep righting back despite all setbacks.

   当网上公布凯奇的诊断报告时,无数人为之落泪,无数人为之痛惜。他身上那朵原本带有侮辱性的苍穹烈焰,也成了勇士的印章。

When Cage’s diagnosis was announced and made known online, countless people shed tears for him, countless people lamented for him. On his body was also that insulting Flaming Red Sky Flower, and it became a warrier’s seal.

   一天过去,两天过去,三天过去……班尼医生判断他活不过两天,然后他一次又一次刷新他的认知。身体明明已经虚弱到极点,但他仍然坚挺的活着。

One day passed by, two days passed, three days passed… Doctor Banny had judged him to live only for two days, but after that, he had to repeatedly refresh his belief. Cage’s body that was obviously weakened to the extreme, yet continued to firmly stay alive.

   班尼不得不承认,有些人的生命力就是这么强悍,难怪他能熬过几十个小时的刑讯。现在连班尼也已经无法确定这个男孩到底能活多久了。

Banny had no choice but to admit, some people’s vitality was just so strong. No wonder he could take so many hours of torture. Even Banny wasn’t able to determine just how long this boy was going to live now.

   第六天,拉威尔按时来探望尚可。

On the sixth day, Ravel came at the same time as usual to visit Shang Ke.

   走进病房见他正在专心地观看视频。拉威尔朝屏幕望去,上面播放的是一个美食节目。

When he walked in the sick room, he saw that the other was concentrating on watching a video. Ravel moved his sight to the screen, on it, a gourmet food program was playing.

   “有什么特别想吃的吗?”拉威尔问。

“Do you have anything you really want to eat?” Ravel asked him.

   尚可连忙点头。

Shang Ke quickly nodded.

   拉威尔从屏幕中点开一本美食图册,一一翻给尚可看。

Ravel opened a gourmet food profile book on the screen, flipping through it one by one for Shang Ke to look.

   “只要不是刺激性的食物,你都可以尝尝,只是不能多吃。”

“As long as the food isn’t stimulating, you can taste them. You just can’t eat too much.

TL: Spicy, pungent, etc

   尚可愉快地笑起来,笑容就像阳光一般,瞬间驱散了拉威尔身上的阴霾,心情也跟着变好了。越是接触这个男孩,越是感受到他的特别。如果开始吸引他的是他的坚韧和不屈,那么现在,就是他的乐观和开朗。拉威尔很清楚他每天都在忍受病痛的折磨,连医生都已经放弃,他却没有,一天又一天地坚持下来。

Shang Ke cheerfully smiled, his smile was like the sunshine and dispersed the gloominess on Ravel’s body. His mood also became much better. The more in came into contact with this boy, the more he felt that he was special. If what attracted his attention first was his tenancy and strong will, then now, it was his optimistic and cheerful personality. Ravel was very clear that he was always enduring the pain, every single day. Even the doctor had already given up, yet he did not. He bore the pain every day.

   拉威尔从来没有如此心疼过一个人,唯有眼前这个男孩,成为了他的例外。

Ravel had never loved a person so much before, only this boy before his eyes could become the exception for him.

   尚可这几天的生活,过得还算惬意,降低50%的痛感仍然有效,所以他其实并没有别人想象中那么难受。然而每当他微笑时,总能收到医生护士们怜惜的眼神。

Shang Ke’s life these days has been pretty satisfying. With the 50% pain reduction still in effect, he wasn’t actually in as much pain as the people were imagining.

   尚可对此只能表示无语。

Shang Ke could only express his speechlessness on it.

   第八天,尚可的病房迎来了一位新访客,乌特雷的养子,凯奇的义兄盖布里。

On the eighth day, a new visitor came to his sick room. Utrecht’s adopted son, Cage’s older brother, Gabriel.

   他不出现,尚可几乎都要忘记这个人的存在了。

Shang Ke almost forgot about this person’s appearance with how he has never appeared.

   不过就算忘记也没关系,反正他再过几天就要与世长辞了。

However, it didn’t matter if he forgot. He was going to die in a couple days.

   盖布里走到尚可的床边,居高临下地望着他。

Gabriel walked next to his bed and arrogantly looked down at him.

   尚可一见这架势,就知道来者不善!

The moment Shang Ke saw this attitude, he knew the other party did not hold good will!

   “凯奇,好久不见。”盖布里嘲讽道,“你当初偷偷跑出来,想必没料到会是这样的结果吧?”

“Cage, long time no see.” Gabriel taunted, “When you sneaked out, you probably never foresaw you would end up like this right?”

   尚可平静地望着他。

Shang Ke calmly looked at him.

   “刑讯的滋味怎么样?”盖布里两手撑在尚可两侧,冷笑道,“看看你现在苟延残喘的样子,真是可怜。你知不知道自己已经没有几天好活了?”

“How is the taste of torture?” Gabriel placed his two hands on either side of Shang Ke, coldly smiling. “Take a look at you now, struggling while at death’s door. Really pitiful. Do you know that you already don’t have many days alive?”

   兄弟,用得着和一个快死的人耀武扬威吗?这样很掉价的。

Bro, do you really need to strut around someone who’s about to die? That is really below your status.

   “你以前一直看不起我,把我当奴隶一样使唤,如今风水轮流转,你就要死了,而比克家族和荣誉,都将由我继承。”盖布里露出得意的笑容,“我还得谢谢你的牺牲。”

“You always looked down at me, always ordering me around like a servant. But fortunes rise and falls, you’re about to die, the family and honor will all be inherited by me.” Gabriel revealed a complacent smile, “I should thank you for your sacrifice.”

   我CAO!他要是凯奇本人还不得气得吐血。自己受尽折磨,最后连命都搭上了,结果却成全了这只白眼狼。

My god! If he really was Cage, he would probably be angered to the point of spitting out blood. He suffered enough torture, even putting his life on it, yet the result was that it was going to help this thankless wolf.

   然而,让尚可气愤的还在后面,盖布里突然直起身,扬手就甩了他一巴掌。

However, what made Shang Ke angery was what happened after. Gabriel suddenly stood up, raised his hand and slapped him.

   “啪”的一声脆响,虽然在降低痛感的效果下,和摸一把没什么两样,但这个巴掌打的不是他的脸,是他的尊严。

The “pa” sound echoed, although under the pain reduction, it felt no different from being rubbed by a hand, what this slap hit wasn’t his face, but his dignity.

   尚可眼含怒意地瞪着他。这小子,不知道病房里有监控吗?他哪来的胆子敢这么做?

Shang Ke angrily looked at him. This guy, doesn’t he know there are monitors in this sick room? How dare he have the courage to do this?

   盖布里像是知道他想说什么,笑道:“你放心,我身上带着干扰器,这几分钟发生的事情,不会被监控记录。”

Gabriel seem to know what he was saying and laughed. “Don’t worry, I have an interference device on me. The events that happened the past few minutes will not be recorded.”

   原来是有备而来。

So he actually came prepared.
