第41章 让我来守护你

Chapter 41: Let Me Protect You (IX)

这几年,尚可一直在留意封家的动静,经过一段时间的动荡,如今总算稳定下来,只是元气大伤,无论是在政界还是商界,势力都大打折扣,正处于艰难的转折阶段,资金方面尤为紧张。

Shang Ke paid attention to Feng Family’s activity all these years. After the period of unrest, they finally settled down. But because their strength was greatly injured, no matter if it was politics or business, their power were much more diminished than before and were currently at a difficult stage pulling themselves back up. Their funds were especially tense.

尚可选择此时将这个消息告诉封隽,是为了让他能够名正言顺地回归家族。若等封家重新崛起再去相认,难免有逢迎之嫌,无端引人话柄。

The reason why Shang Ke chose to tell Feng Juan the news now was so that he could properly return to back to his family. If they went after the Feng Family once again rose up, it would be hard to avoid suspicion and gossip.

他们的“mr.bruin”发展不错,虽然比不上那些大公司,但是几千万还是拿得出来的。

Their “Mr. Bruin” development was doing well. Although it couldn’t compete with those big companies, a couple ten millions they could still afford to take out.

封隽看着尚可收集的有关封家的消息,沉默了许久。时隔十年,他对自己的身世早已不再执着,因为他有可可,还有费尔格夫妇,这里,就是他的家。

Feng Juan read the information Shang Ke gathered on his family and remained silent for a long time. Being separated from them for ten years, the strong attachment he had to his past was long gone, because now he had Ke Ke, the Ferrg couple and this place was his home.

“可可,他们真的是我的家人吗?”封隽迟疑地问。其实他想问的并不是这个,尚可既然郑重其事地告诉他,说明他已经多方面证实过了。

“Ke Ke, are they really my family?” Feng Juan hesitantly asked. Actually, what he wanted to ask wasn’t that. Since Shang Ke seriously told him about this, then it meant that he had already done many confirmations on it.

“去看看不就知道了?”尚可对他微微一笑。

“Won’t we know if we go take a look?” Shang Ke gave him a faint smile.

封隽望着他的笑容,心绪逐渐平复,笑道:“正好放假了,我们去z国渡假吧?”

Feng Juan looked at his smile and his mind steadily calmed. He also smiled, “We’re luckily on break right now, shall we go to China for vacation?”

“好啊。”尚可如今算半个zf雇员,出国必须提交申请,不过以他的年纪和这十年的表现,通过申请应该不难。

“Sure.” Shang Ke was considered half an employee of the government, so he had to apply for permission to go abroad. But with his current age and his behavior these past ten years, applying for a pass shouldn’t be hard.

“那睡觉吧!”封隽将笔记本往床头柜上一放,拉着尚可就往被窝里钻。

“Then let’s sleep!” Feng Juan closed his laptop and put it on the cabinet then pulled Shang Ke and got into bed.

“睡觉归睡觉,不准再做其他事。”尚可严正声明。

“Sleeping is sleeping, don’t you dare do anything else.” Shang Ke sternly declared.

封隽抱住他的腰,低声道:“可可,我们现在是什么关系?”

Feng Juan held his waist and asked in a low voice, “Ke Ke, what is our relationship right now?”

“家人,一直都是。”尚可回答。

“Family, we always were.” Shang Ke replied.

“兄弟是家人,夫妻也是家人。”到底是兄弟还是夫妻,这点需要明确一下。

“Brothers are family, a married couple are also family.” Was it brothers or married couple, he wanted that to be made clear.

尚可敢用脚指头发誓,只要他说他们是夫妻,这家伙立刻就会扑上来,所以他绝对不能承认。

Shang Ke dared to use his pinky to swear, as long as he said they were a married couple, this guy would immediately pounce at him. So he cannot admit it no matter what.

“我们都没结婚,哪来的夫妻?”

“We haven’t even married, where did the married couple come from?”

“那等我十八岁,我们就去结婚吧?”封隽觉得这个提议真是太棒了。

“Then when I’m eighteen, let’s go get married?” Feng Juan felt that this suggestion was too great.

e国早在十几年前就已经通过同性恋婚姻法,所以封隽虽然也纠结过一段时间,但最后还是很自然地接受了。

The UK had already allowed same-sex marriage over ten years ago, so although Feng Juan was at loss for a while over it, he still naturally accepted it at the end.

“隽隽,你还太小。”年轻,冲动,对任何新鲜事物都抱有极大热情。

“Juan Juan, you are still too small.” Young, impulsive and passionate about anything fresh.

尚可并不确定这段感情能够持续多久,毕竟他几个世界都与这个人匆匆别过,再深的感情也不过昙花一现。更何况他有任务在身,随时可能会死。与封隽生活的这十年,他非常开心。结不结婚,并不重要。

Shang Ke was not sure how long these feelings would last, after all, he had always quickly separated from this man in all the past few worlds. No matter how deep their feelings were, it was all short-lived. In addition, he had a mission to do so he could die at any moment. His life with Feng Juan these past ten years made him very happy. It wasn’t important if they got married or not.

“你也不过才比我大1岁。”封隽翻身压住他,挑眉道,“而且除了年纪,你还有哪里比我大?”

“You’re only a year old than me.” Feng Juan flipped over and pressed him down, raising his eyebrow, “Besides age, where else are you bigger than me?”

尚可被他不怀好意地蹭了几下,暗暗咬牙。这家伙看着成熟,其实本质还是一个喜欢炫耀的熊孩子!

Shang Ke was rubbed a few times by him mischievously and he clenched his teeth. This guy appears mature, but at the core, he was still that little devil that liked to flaunt!

“起开,如果不想被我赶出去,就给我老实点!”尚可没好气地踢了踢他。

“Get off. If you don’t want to be kicked out by me, then behave yourself!” Shang Ke kicked at him grumpily.

ah,恼羞成怒了,果然不该揭他的短吗?封隽自我检讨着。

Ah, I pushed him too far. As expected, I shouldn’t have poked at his weak point? Feng Juan self-criticized for a moment.

尚可见他不动了,这才放心闭上眼。

Seeing how he was no longer moving, Shang Ke finally felt assured enough to close his eyes.

不过他显然放心太早,对于一只刚刚开荤的饿狼而言,任何时候都不能掉以轻心。在半梦半醒之间,尚可又被某人来回吃了个遍。

However, he clearly relaxed too early. Against a wolf that had finally resumed a meat diet, one can never lower their guard. While he was half awake, Shang Ke was once again eaten by someone.

最后结果是,封隽再次被尚可无情地扔出了他的房间——连同他的内裤、保险套和润滑剂一起,任他偷奸耍滑也没能争取到与尚可同床共枕的权利。

The final result was that Feng Juan was once again mercilessly throw out of the room by Shang Ke—together with his underwear, condom and lubricant. No matter what he did, he couldn’t obtain the right to share the same bed with Shang Ke.

几天后,尚可通过出国申请,和封隽办理好手续,准备前往z国。但在登机当天,尚可临时接到紧急任务,只能对封隽抱歉道:“你先去,我还有一些事情要处理,晚点就去z国找你。”

A few days later, Shang Ke obtained approval for his application to go abroad. Feng Juan and him both finished up their paperwork and prepared to leave for China. But on the day they were going to get on the plane, Shang Ke received an urgent mission so he could only apologize to Feng Juan, “You go first, I have something else to deal with first. I will go to China later and meet up with you.”

“什么事?我等你。”封隽知道尚可有事瞒着他,不过他并没有追根究底,可可想说的话,早晚会对他说。

“What is it? I’ll wait for you.” Feng Juan knows that Shang Ke was hiding something from him, but he did not push at the matter. If Ke Ke wants to tell him, then he would tell him eventually.

“朋友需要帮忙。”尚可推了推封隽的背,催促道,“要登机了,你快去吧。我最多两三天就会去z国和你汇合。”

“A friend needs help.” Shang Ke pushed Feng Juan’s back, urging him to go, “You need to get on the place. I will be done quickly. It’ll take at most two to three days for me to meet up with you at China.”

封隽迟疑了一会,最后还是与尚可告别,一个人沉着脸通过安检。

Feng Juan hesitated for a moment and still bid farewell to Shang Ke in the end. He calmly passed through the safety check by himself.

尚可目送他登机后,转身赶往聚集地点。这几年他配合警方,参与了几十起打击犯罪的行动。他主要负责搜集情报,调阅监控,排查信息等等,随着时间的推移,他的计算机技术也在不断进步,虽然没有封隽进步那么快,却也累计了不少实战经验。

After Shang Ke saw him off, he turned around and headed for the gathering spot. He had coordinated with the police these years and participated and dozens of crack down on criminal operations. He was mainly in charge of gathering information, accessing monitors, running through information and so on. With the passing of time, his own skills were improving. Although it was not as fast as Feng Juan’s progress, he had obtained much actual experience.

所以对于每次任务调动,他都没有什么怨言,因为他们曾经承诺过,绝对不会打扰费尔格夫妇和封隽。

So he did not really have anything to complain about whenever he was mobilized. Because they had promised him that they will not disturb the Ferrg couple or Feng Juan no matter what.

尚可事先早知道这次任务与塔比目有关,这也是他决定和封隽出国的原因之一。这股势力在他步步算计下,逐渐土崩瓦解。剩下一些残余势力,正在做最后的反扑。他们从走私团伙,变为恐怖分子,开始四处作乱。

Shang Ke knew in advance that this mission has something to do with Tabimu, it was also one of the reasons why he chose to go abroad with Feng Juan. This group of power was gradually collapsing under his calculations. The remaining powers was just doing one last comeback. They went from a smuggling gang to terrorist and started rebellions all over the place.

不过五六天时间,先后抢劫了两家银行,杀死了十余人,炸毁了一栋隶属zf的办公大楼。

In the timeframe of just five to six days, they had robbed two banks, killed around ten people, and blew up an office building belonging to the government.

尚可的任务就是利用网络技术,将这群人的位置找出来。

Shang Ke’s mission was to use the network to find the position of these people.

在所有技术员中,尚可年纪最小,但实力最强。当年他刚刚参与任务时,不少人都被他的年纪以及与年纪完全不符的高超技术所震惊。

Among all the technicians, his age was the youngest but his strength was the highest. Back in the days when he had just started to participate in these missions, many people were shocked by how completely incompatible his excellent skills and age were.

“捕捉到其中一人的手机信号。”尚可神色沉稳,手指飞动,如一位优秀的指挥家掌控全局,“正沿着x大道向东行驶,前面是……”

“I caught a phone signal from one of them.” Shang Ke’s expression was calm as his fingers flew like an outstanding conductor controlling the entire situation. “He’s currently on X street heading eastward. Ahead of that is…”

警察们根据他提供的线索迅速行动起来。

The police quickly started to act based on the trail he gave them.

尚可一边调阅地图,一边分析对方的目的地,正在关键处,他的声音突然停顿。

While Shang Ke checked the map, he also analyzed their destination. But his voice stopped at a crucial place.

“怎么了?”罗文疑惑地看向他。

“What’s wrong?” Rowan looked at him in confusion.

尚可脸色凝重,沉声道:“他们行驶的方向,距离我养父母的公司只有五里了。”

Shang Ke replied back with a grave expression, “The direction they are heading is only five miles away from my foster parent’s company.”

罗文的表情也是一变,立刻打电话调集警力,前往mr.bruin所在的办公楼。

Rowan’s expression also changed and he immediately made a call to the police force, heading toward Mr. Bruin’s office building.

尚可看了看时间,现在是下午4点多,费尔格夫妇肯定还在公司。

Shang Ke took a look at the time, it was now four in the afternoon. The Ferrg couple would still be working at this time.

他拨打了费尔格夫妇的手机,没人接,随后又拨通了公司的电话,响了三声就被人接起。

He called the Ferrg couple’s cell phone but no one picked up. Then he called the company’s number and someone picked up after three rings.

“我是布诺……”刚说完这句话,便听电话那头传来一个陌生的声音:“你好,布诺。”

“I’m Bruno…” He had just said his name when an unfamiliar voice cut through, “Hello, Bruno.”

尚可动作一僵,打开免提。

Shang Ke’s movement went stiff then he turned on the speakerphone.

“这些年来,多谢你的‘关照’,我们一直铭记于心。”那人发出一阵诡异的笑声,“如今总算有机会和你好好聊聊了。”

“Thank you for your ‘care’ all these years, we have always kept you in our thoughts.” That man then made a strange sound of laughter, “We finally have the chance to properly talk this time.”

“你们想干什么?”尚可问。

“What are you guys trying to do?” Shang Ke asked.

“你的养父母,还有几十名员工都在我们手上。”那人继续说道,“想救他们的话,就来和我们见个面。对了,记得带上你的兄弟伊恩。”

“Your foster parents and a dozen staff members are in our hands.” That man continued, “If you want to save them, then come meet us face to face. Oh, right, remember to bring along your brother Ian.”

“伊恩出国了,暂时联系不到。”

“Ian went abroad, I can’t contact him for now.”

“呵呵,联系不上?那算了,你先来吧。”说完,对方挂上了电话。

“Hehe, you can’t contact him? Then forget it, you can come first.” The other hung up after those words.

尚可盯着电脑屏幕,原本捕捉到的手机信号已经消失,这群人明显是有备而来,目的就是他和封隽,只是没想到会连累了费尔格夫妇和其他公司员工。

Shang Ke stared at the computer screen, the cell phone signal he caught before was already gone. This group was clearly prepared and their purpose was him and Feng Juan. however, he didn’t expect to get the Ferrg couple and employees caught up in this mess.

罗文拍拍他的肩膀,安慰道:“别着急,我们会把你的家人救出来的。”

Rowan patted his shoulder, comforting him. “Don’t worry, we will save your family.”

尚可并没有太大信心,从对方毫无顾忌的行事方式来看,若非打算同归于尽,就是已经做好了万全的准备。

Shang Ke did not have much confidence. From the other’s uncaring attitude, if they weren’t planning to take them down with them, then it meant they have other preparations made.

一行人匆匆赶往mr.bruin的办公大楼,那里已经被警方封锁戒严。

A group of people hurried to the office building of Mr. Bruin, which was already sealed off and watched by the police.

双方来回交涉过几次,匪徒只有一个要求:让尚可过来交换人质,如果不来,每隔十分钟就杀一个人。

The two parties negotiated several times, but the criminals only had on request: To have Shang Ke go over and exchange hostages with them. If he doesn’t go, then they would kill someone every ten minutes.

警方要求他们先释放几名人质,他们毫不理会。

The police asked them to first release a couple hostages, but they ignored it.

e国的犯罪率向来很高,只是尚可没想到这种事情居然会发生自己身上。他现在唯一庆幸的,就是将封隽送出国了。

The crime rate of the UK was always rather high, but Shang Ke didn’t expect this to happen to him. He could only rejoice right now that he had sent Feng Juan out of the country.

眼看匪徒限定的时间越来越近,尚可终于开口道:“让我去吧。”

Seeing how the time the criminals set was getting closer and closer, Shang Ke finally spoke. “Let me go.”

“不行。”罗文立刻否决。谁都知道,他这一去,恐怕就再也回不来了。

“No.” Rowan immediately vetoed it. Anyone knows that if he goes, then perhaps he will never come back.

“我不去,就会有无辜的人丧命。”

“If I don’t go, then someone innocent will die.”

“即使你去了,他们也未必能活命。”罗文直言不讳,他见识过这群人的手段,绝对的心狠手辣。

“Even if you went, they might not necessarily live.” Rowan bluntly told him. He had first hand witness of these people’s methods, they were vicious and merciless without a doubt.

“至少还有一线希望不是吗?”尚可摸索着口袋里的手机,眼中的光芒晦暗不明。

“There is still a hint of hope is there not?” Shang Ke touched the cell phone in his pocket, the light in his eyes somewhat dark.

罗文没想到他在这种时候,居然还能如此冷静。

Rowan did not expect him to be so calm even under such conditions.

“罗文警探,我相信你们。”尚可朝他露出一个温和的笑容,眼中光华流动,透出几分睿智。

“Detective Rowan, I believe in you guys.” Shang Ke gave them a gentle smile, the light danced in his eyes, making him appear somewhat wise and farsighted.

罗文看到他的笑容,既诧异又心酸。这个男孩为他们做出了许多贡献,如今他们却只能眼睁睁看着他去送死。那群人之所以找上尚可,归根结底也是因为他协助警方瓦解了他们的势力。

When Rowan saw his smile, he felt both flabbergasted and sad. This boy had contributed much to them, but now they could only watch him send himself up to death. The reason why those people came looking for trouble with Shang Ke was likely because he helped the police collapse their power.

“你们决定好了吗?”对方又打来电话。

“Have you guys decided?” The other once again called.

“我来了。”尚可平静地回复。

“I’m coming.” Shang Ke calmly replied.

在一群警察的注视下,尚可孤身朝大楼走去,步履平稳,没有丝毫畏缩。

Under the group of police’s gaze, Shang Ke went alone into the building. His gait was calm and steady without fear.

罗文暗骂一声,吩咐手下各就各位,做好狙击和营救准备。

Rowan silently cursed and then ordered all his subordinates to get into position in preparation to snipe and rescue.

尚可走进电梯,点开10楼的数字。电梯门刚刚合上,他的手机就响了,拿出来一看,是封隽。

Shang Ke entered the elevator and he clicked the tenth floor button. Right after the doors closed, his phone rang. He took it out and saw it was Feng Juan.

“可可,已经5天了,你怎么还没来?”封隽的声音中透着几分不满。

“Ke Ke, it’s already been five days, why haven’t you come yet?” Feng Juan’s voice carried a bit of displeasure.

尚可一边注视着不断向上的数字,一边回答:“抱歉,这边有些忙,估计要再过几天。”

While Shang Ke watched the numbers that gradually increased, he replied, “Sorry, I’m a bit busy over here. It would probably take a few more days.”

“那你快点,我很想你。”顿了顿,随即又道,“对了,我已经和父母相认了。”

“Then finish up quickly, I really miss you.” He paused a bit, then added, “By the way, I already met up with my parents.”

“他们对你好吗?”

“Are they good to you?”

“挺好的。”封隽犹豫了一下,说道,“可可,封家现在有些困难,我想帮他们一把。撇开亲缘不说,以封家的发展前景,我觉得这也是一次不错的投资。”

“It’s pretty nice.” Feng Juan hesitated a bit then said, “Ke Ke, the Feng Family is in a bit of a tight situation right now, I want to help them. Regardless of our blood relation, with their development prospects, I also think this is a pretty good investment.”

“你决定就好。”尚可笑道,“我之前已经转了三千万到你账户中,如果少了,到时候再说。”

“As long as you decided.” Shang Ke smiled, “I transferred thirty million to your bank ahead of time, if it’s not enough, tell me so.”

“可可,我爱你!”可可对他的决定,总是无条件的支持。

“Ke Ke, I love you!” Ke Ke always supported his choices unconditionally.

“叮”的一声,电梯到了。

With a “ding”, the elevator arrived.

尚可挂上电话,望着逐渐打开的电梯门,低声道:“我也爱你。”

Shang Ke hung up the call and watched the gradually opening elevator door, softly saying, “I love you too.”

“哟,看看这是谁?”一名光头男子看着走进办公室的尚可,邪邪一笑。

“Yo, you see what we got here?” A bald man looked at Shang Ke who entered the building and evilly laughed.

另外几人围过去,准备给尚可搜身。尚可退后一步,掀开自己的外衣,露出绑在腰上的炸药。

A couple of other people surrounded him, prepared to do a body search. But Shang Ke took a step back and lifted open his jacket, showing the explosives he tied at his waist.

几人一见,脸色骤变。

Their faces abruptly changed once they saw that.

尚可看到他们这种反应,立刻知道他们并没有同归于尽的打算。

Shang Ke immediately knew that they did not have the plan to die together with them once he saw their reaction.

“你是不想活了吗?”光头男人举枪对准他,愤怒地质问。他还从来没遇到过绑着炸弹来交换人质的家伙!就不能好好按牌理出牌吗?

“Do you not want to live anymore?” The bald man raised his gun and aimed at him, angrily questioning him. He had never met someone who tied a bomb onto themselves while coming over to exchange for hostages! Can’t this guy do things like normal?

“你们会让我活着回去吗?”尚可轻描淡写地回答,然后抽出一张办公椅,缓缓坐下,目光在不远处的费尔格夫妇几人身上扫了一圈,确定他们没有受到太大的伤害,才稍稍放心。

“Will you guys let me go back alive?” Shang Ke very casually replied then took a company chair and slowly sat in it. His gaze swept by where the Ferrg couple were not too far away and was somewhat relieved when he saw they were not too injured.

之前他提议在自己身上绑炸弹时,所有人都用“你疯了”的眼神看着他。他们不知道兵法中有一招叫做“置之死地而后生”。

Back when he had suggested tying a bomb onto himself, everyone used a “are you insane” gaze to look at him. Do they not know there is a move called “if you place someone on a field of death then they will fight to live” in the Art of War?

如果这群人打算与他同归于尽,那么他只要踏进这座办公大楼,就注定是一个死,其他人质也只能做他的陪葬。如果他们另外制定了逃跑计划,那么他绑上炸弹,就能威胁到他们的生命,在离开大楼前,他们都不敢贸然动手。

If this group of people planned to die with him, then as long as he steps into this building, then his death was destined while the other hostages could only be buried with him. If they had another plan drawn up to flee this place, then he could threaten them with the bomb tied on him. Before they leave the building, they would not rashly do anything.

“我没有别的意思。”尚可四肢舒展地靠在办公椅上,淡定道,“我只是想保障我家人的安全。只要他们安全了,你们马上就能看到我被炸成一朵烟花。”

“I don’t have any other meaning.” Shang Ke leaned against the chair lazily, calmly saying, “I just want to ensure everyone’s safety. As long as they are safe, then you guys can see me being bombed into fireworks.”

“我不相信你身上绑的真是炸弹。”光头紧紧盯着他的表情,不放过一丝变化。

“I don’t believe that the bomb tied on you is real.” The bald man closely stared at his expression so that not even a single change could get by him.

“你可以试试。”尚可摊开双手,一副任君点射的模样。

“You can test it.” Shang Ke spread out his hands, like he was willing to light it any moment.

十几名匪徒面面相觑,一时之间竟然不知道该怎么办。

The dozen of criminals looked at each other, they did not know what to do right now.

片刻后,光头狠狠对他说:“算你有种。把你的手机和其他通讯设备都交出来!”

A moment later, the bald man viciously said to him, “You got guts. Hand over your cell phone and any other communication equipment!”

他们不敢随意近身,因为他们都知道尚可身手不错,若一个不小心把炸弹引爆了,那就悲剧了。

They did not dare to get close to him, because they knew that Shang Ke’s skills were high and if he accidentally lights the bomb, then it would be their tragedy.

尚可很顺从地将自己的手机扔给他们,然后抖抖衣服、口袋和裤脚,还把鞋子脱下来给他们看了看,示意身上已经没有其他设备了。

Shang Ke very obediently threw the cell phone to him and then shook his clothes, his pockets and pant legs. He even took off his shoes and gave it to them to check, showing that he did not have any other equipment on himself.

他们并不知道,在进办公室时,尚可就激活了手机上的跳跳虫,配对了他们的手机。大楼的监控虽然被毁了,但是通过他们的手机,外面的警察可以毫无阻碍地监听他们的行动。

They did not know that in the office, Shang Ke had activated the Jumping Virus on his phone and connected to their phone. Although the monitoring system of the building was destroyed, through the use of the cell phone, the police outside could monitor their actions without obstruction.

大楼外,一名技术员正在使用尚可留下的笔记本。

Outside the building, a technician was using the laptop Shang Ke left behind.

他们听到尚可和匪徒的对话,心中既佩服,又不由得为他捏了一把冷汗。一个十七、八岁男孩,面对一群穷凶极恶的匪徒,居然还能如此镇定,真不知道他哪来的勇气?

They heard Shang Ke and the criminal’s chat and was full of admiration for him while they wiped their cold sweat. A seventeen to eighteen boy was actually so calm while confronting such an evil and vicious criminal. Just where does his courage come from?

“说说吧,你们接下来打算干什么?”尚可问道。

“So tell me, what are you guys planning to do next?” Shang K asked.

“这个不需要你担心。”光头手上的枪并没有放下来,似乎正在寻找射击的角度。

“You don’t need to worry about that.” The bald man did not put down his gun, he seems to be looking for an angle to shoot instead.

“我倒不是担心,而是大家都这么闲,总得找点事情打发时间。”尚可笑道,“既然你们没什么话可说,那不如听我说几句怎么样?”

“I’m not worried, but it looks like everyone is rather free, so I have to find something to do to pass the time.” Shang Ke smiled, “Since you guys got nothing to talk about, why not listen to what I have to say?”

什么叫“大家都这么闲”?!楼内和楼外的人都是一脸黑线。

What “everyone is rather free”?! The people inside and outside had faces full of black lines.

“你想说什么?”匪徒们完全没意识到,他们的主动权已经完全被眼前这个十七、八岁的男孩掌握了。

“What do you want to say?” The criminals did not realize that their initiative was completely grasped by this seventeen to eighteen year old boy.

“我和你们交手了很多年,到底搜集了你们多少信息,你们恐怕无法想象。”

“I fought with you guys for so many years, the information I have gathered is beyond what you guys can imagine.”

“那又如何?”光头冷冷道,“如今塔比目势力已经土崩瓦解,你搜集的信息,对我们已经没有任何意义。”

“So what?” The bald man coldly said, “Tabimu has already collapsed nowadays, the information you gathered has no importance to us.”

“是吗?”尚可遗憾道,“我还以为你们会对你们老大偷藏的那笔钱很感兴趣呢?”

“Really?” Shang Ke said regretfully, “I had thought you guys would be rather interested at where the old boss hid the money?”

“什么?”几名匪徒眼中同时一亮。

“What?” The eyes of all the criminals lit up at the same time.

塔比目头目已经被收监,这辈子都不可能出狱了,但他手上确实还藏着一笔钱,只是一直没人找到。

The ringleader of Tabimu was already imprisoned and it was impossible for him to be released from prison his entire life. But no one could find the money he had hidden.

“你知道那笔钱藏在哪里?”

“You know where the money is hidden?”

“当然。”尚可用手指点了点自己的头,“我一清二楚。”

“Of course.” Shang Ke used his finger to poke at his head, “I am very clear about it.”

光头冷笑:“你以为我会相信这种谎话?如果你知道,恐怕早就告诉警方了,还等我们去取?”

The bald man coldly smiled, “You think I would believe this lie? If you knew, you would have told the police already. Why would you still be waiting around for us to get it?”

“我是一名黑客,做任何事情都会给自己留一条后路。”尚可从容自若,“我想用我的命换我家人的命,然后再用这笔钱换我自己的命?你们觉得这笔交易怎么样?”

“I am a hacker, I would leave myself a way out for anything I do.” Shang Ke said with ease and calm, “I want to use my life in exchange for my family’s. Then, I want to use that money to exchange for my life. What do you think of this transaction?”

光头目不转睛地盯着尚可,后者一脸平静,没有丝毫心虚的表现。

The bald man stared at Shang Ke without blinking, the other was very calm, no sign of guilt could be seen on his face.

他又问:“具体有多少钱?”

He asked again, “How much money is there?”

“我也不太确定,但至少有这个数。”尚可伸出五根手指,单位是“亿”。

“I’m not too sure either, but there’s at least this much.” Shang Ke fan out his fingers, the unit is “one hundred million”.

如果他说出一个准确的数字,匪徒或许还不会相信,但现在,他们却心动了。

If he said an accurate number, then the criminals might actually not believe it. But right now, they were tempted.

楼外的人听到此处,几乎都要怀疑尚可是不是真的知道这笔钱的下落。他的语气实在太镇定,太有说服力了。

The people outside was almost really confused if Shang Ke really knew where the money was. His tone was too calm and too convincing.

经过一番交锋,匪徒最终与尚可达成协议。与此同时,接应他们的人也到了。

After a series of arguing, the criminals and Shang Ke reached an agreement. At the same time, their support arrived.

匪徒们每人带上一名人质,从货舱电梯下到地下停车场。

The criminals all took a hostage and went from the cargo elevator down to the underground parking lot

他们原本打算将尚可和所有人质都杀了,如今计划有变,最后还是决定等拿了那笔钱后,再处理尚可。至于其他人,杀不杀都无所谓。

They had originally planned to kill Shang Ke and all the hostages, but now, their plans have changed. They decided to wait until they got the money then deal with Shang Ke. As for the others, whether they killed them or not made no difference.

警察围守在外面,但他们有人质在手,都不敢贸然行动。

The police kept watch outside, but since they had hostages, they couldn’t move rashly.

匪徒分别上了两辆商务车,大部分人都挤在前一辆车上,只留了两个人看管尚可和费尔格夫妇。没办法,谁叫他身上绑着炸弹呢?

The criminals separated into two cars, most of them crowded into the first one, leaving behind only two people to watch over Shang Ke and the Ferrg couple. There’s nothing to be done about it, whose fault was it that he had bombs tied onto him?

车子行到中途,匪徒按照约定,将除了费尔格夫妇之外的其他人质都放了。

The car drove until midway and as per agreement, the criminals released all the other hostages besides the Ferrg couple.

尚可也知道他们不会轻易放了他的养父母,必须想其他办法才行。

Shang Ke also knew that they would not easily let go of his foster parents. He needed to think of a plan.

罗文望着匪徒开着车扬长而去,立刻开始重新布置任务。

Rowan watched the criminal drive away his care and immediately gave out commands.

尚可在所有人都认为九死一生的任务中,不仅将大部分人质都救出来了,还为自己争取了一线生机。

Not only had Shang Ke saved a large portion of the hostages in this mission everyone believed wouldn’t succeed, he had even grabbed himself a lifeline.

从他提议在自己身上绑炸弹,到他与歹徒谈判,在短短几十分钟内就想出了应急之策,其中所表现出的过人的智慧和强大的心理素质,无一不让人惊叹。

From the time he suggested tying a bomb to himself, to him negotiating with the criminals, then the plan he made in those short dozens of minutes, he showed a powerful psychological ability and wisdom that surpassed others. It caused everyone to gasp in admiration.

罗文从警这么多年,从未遇见过如此特别的男孩。他心中突然生出一种念头,尚可这次必然能够平安归来。

Rowan had been a detective for so many years and never met such a special boy before. A thought suddenly rose in his mind, Shang Ke will certainly come back safely.

          It’s called the Dao of Sta- *cough* Camping!
          Roasting marshmallows and lurking behind the bushes is all we can do while we wait for the ‘sacred scripture’ from Goddess Snowy-sama.
          Expert sta- campers have been tempering their fujoshi and fudanshi hearts by waiting and praying to the yaoi gods for ‘insights’.

            Then can I camp too?∆Dao sta-(idk) camping∆
            I am less attentive with my friends now and just the other day, I (might )severe our friendship. So maybe I can ship here for healing my heart. Teach me the way snowy – sama!

    Wakes up, sees treat, looks left, looks right, bite, munch, munch, freezes.

    Me: Oh, it’s you Snowy-sama..

    Following her gaze to the treat, slowly puts it down.

    Me: I-I only took three bites! I swear!

    Snowy- sama: …

    Meets her expressionless stare, starts crying.

    Me: Okey, I get it! I will wait until after dinner!

    Turns around, runs back to blanket nest.
