Chapter 44: Everyone Loves Little Immortal Mushroom (II)


尚可用清炖一锅蘑菇汤的时间,终于确定阎戮失忆了。

Shang Ke used the time to make a pot of mushroom soup to confirm that Yan Lu lost his memories.

渡劫失败,前尘往事烟消云散,仿若新生。对尚可而言,这无疑是一个不错的开始。

With the failure of his tribulation, his past memories vanished like smoke as if he was born anew. To Shang Ke, this was undoubtedly a pretty good start.

阎戮一边喝汤,一边盯着尚可看。

While Yan Lu drank his soup, he stared at Shang Ke.

尚可不知道他喝汤就喝汤,盯着他看是几个意思?

Shang Ke didn’t understand, if he’s drinking soup then drink it, why must he stare at him while he did it?

将一锅汤喝得干干净净,阎戮慢吞吞地说:“我觉得,还是你比较好吃。”

After finishing an entire pot of mushroom soup, Yan Lu slowly spoke, “I think, that you would taste better.”

本尊再好吃也不会让你吃!变成蘑菇已经够悲催了好吗?身边还养着一个时刻惦记吃掉你的家伙,而且这家伙将来是真的把他吃了啊!

No matter how tasty this senior is, this senior will not let you taste it! Turning into a mushroom was already miserable enough alright? While by his side was another guy who was thinking of eating him at any moment, and this guy will really eat him in the future!

尚可觉得如果想要将他培养成一代神君,就必须让这个情感淡薄的家伙认识世间所有美好的事物,从而纠正他扭曲的人生观和世界观。

Shang Ke felt that if he wanted to cultivate this guy into a God Lord, then he has to make this guy with faint emotions know all the beautiful things in this world. And thus, correct his twisted life view and world view.

所以,尚可果断地决定带他出去游历,寻仙问道的同时,体验生活,惩恶扬善,点亮人性的光辉。

As such, Shang Ke determinedly decided to take him out on a journey. While they searched for the path of correct immortality, they can experience life, uphold virtue and condemn evil, and light up the glory of human nature.

几天后,尚可将东西全部存进储物戒,又和山洞里的所有蘑菇告别后,便带着阎戮上路了。

Several days later, after Shang Ke had packed up everything into his storage ring, and bid farewell to all the mushrooms in the cave, he left with Yan Lu following.

“快点,夏凉城马上就要到了。”尚可转头朝身后的阎戮招呼着。

“Hurry up, we’re almost at Xialiang City.” Shang Ke turned his head and called out to Yan Lu.

阎戮慢悠悠地跟在后面,静静望着尚可活力四射的背影。虽然他什么都不记得了,却十分熟悉眼前这个人的气息。曾经不知道多少个日日夜夜,都是他陪在自己身边。

Yan Lu slowly followed him, silently staring at Shang Ke’s lively figure. Although he didn’t remember anything, he was very familiar with this person’s presence. Once upon a time he had spent unfathomable days and night accompanying him by his side.

阎戮想,这棵蘑菇是不是他以前种的?自己以前很擅长种蘑菇?居然种出了一棵可以化成人形的蘑菇精。(尚可:呵呵,想太多。)

Yan Lu thought, could it be that this mushroom was planted by him before? Perhaps he was actually quite good at planting mushrooms? To actually plant out a mushroom that could transform into human form. (Shang Ke: Hehe, you’re overthinking.)

阎戮右脚一跨,瞬间出现在尚可身边,一边闻着蘑菇香,一边与他并肩而行。

Yan Lu’s right leg took a step and he appeared by Shang Ke’s side in a flash. While he scented the fragrance of the mushroom, he stayed and walked with him.

尚可如今的修为虽然不高,但短距离飞行还是可以做到的,不过带着阎戮,也只能选择步行。阎戮渡劫失败后,修为全无。但是他的肉身经过了八重天劫的淬炼,已经脱胎换骨,从前修炼的魔攻毁于一旦,而后又被尚可用各种灵物清涤魔气,体内灵气自生,充满浩然正气。

Although Shang Ke’s current cultivation wasn’t high, he was still able to fly for short distances. But with Yan Lu, he could only walk. After Yan Lu failed his tribulation, he lost all of his cultivation. But because his physical had already been tempered by eight of the tribulation strikes, his body was entire different from before. Once his previous devil cultivation were destroyed, adding in how Shang Ke used all sorts of ways to clean out the devil qi, the new spiritual qi that formed within his body was full of righteousness.

换言之,阎戮拥有魔君的肉身以及仙家的灵根。以他的资质,以后无论修炼哪种正道功法,皆可大成。

In other words, Yan Lu had the physical body of a Devil Lord while he had the spirit roots of an immortal. With his aptitude, no matter what kind of cultivation he practiced in the future, he would make great progress.

看样子尚可似乎只要为他寻得一部上乘功夫,他就能走上成为神君的青云之路。然并卵,现实总是残酷的。

It looks as if Shang Ke only needed to find him a first class martial arts and he would be able to walk upon the clear road of a God Lord. But thoughts are thoughts, reality was always cruel.

夏凉城是一座偏远小城,人口不足五万人,但处于青山秀水之间,灵气充沛,常有山人采到仙芝灵草,所以修真者们偶尔会来此地淘宝。

Xialiang City was a small remote town, the population didn’t even hit fifty thousand. But because it was located between nature, it was full of spiritual qi and there would often be villagers that picked up immortal spirit herbs. As such, there were immortal cultivators that would come by occasionally to obtain treasures.

乔装了一番的尚可走在人群中,徐徐介绍着夏凉城的情况,阎戮漫不经心地左顾右盼,看到旁边的摊位上有自己喜欢的东西,伸手就拿。等尚可发现时,这家伙左手拿着一把扇子,手臂上还挂着几条流苏和挂饰,右手则拿着一颗水果,啃得正欢。

The disguised Shang Ke walked amongst the crowd and slowly introduced Xialiang City’s situation. Yan Lu was indifferently looking around and taking things he liked from the vendors around them. By the time Shang Ke noticed, this guy’s left hand was holding a fan while several tassels and other hanging decorations were hung on his arm. His right hand held a fruit and he was still chewing on it happily.

尚可问道:“这些东西,你给钱没有?”

Shang Ke asked, “Have you paid money for these things yet?”

“钱是什么东西?”阎戮并非不知道什么是钱,而是根本不在乎。在他看来,任何东西只要他有本事拿,那就是他的。

“What’s money?” It wasn’t that Yan Lu didn’t know what money was, it was that he simply did not care. To him, as long as he had the ability to obtain something, it was his.

“买卖买卖,有买有卖,以物易物,才是公平,怎么能不问自取?”尚可拉着他转身往回走,“我们去把这些东西的钱付了。”

“Buying and selling, you can buy you can sell, you can barter. Only then is it fair. How could you selfishly take without payment?’ Shang Ke pulled him and walked back the way they came from, “Let’s go back and pay for all of those things.”

阎戮不置可否,跟在尚可身后,看他不厌其烦地找到各个摊贩的主人,一一将所有钱都付清。

Yan Lu declined to comment and followed behind Shang Ke, watching him patiently looking for the stall-keepers of everything he had taken and paid for them one by one.

尚可看了看自己的钱袋,刚才这些东西,居然花掉了他一半财产。

Shang Ke looked at his own purse. Those things had actually used up half of his wealth.

他对阎戮说:“以后要想办法赚钱,不然就得坐吃山空。”

He said to Yan Lu, “We need to find ways to earn money later, or we’ll end up just eating air.”

“不会的,随便抢几个人就有了。”阎戮的目光在几名衣着华丽的人身上转了转,淡淡道,“这些人肥头大耳,体内郁气淤积,平时必定贪图享乐,拿走他们的钱财,或许还能让他们活久一点。”

“That won’t happen, we can just steal from a couple people.” Yan Lu’s gaze lingered on a couple people who had lavish clothing and dully said, “These man are fat and prosperous and the qi within them is sluggish. They are usually greedy for riches, so taking away their wealth might actually let them live longer.”

尚可:“……那也是人家的钱,我们去抢就是不对。”

Shang Ke was somewhat speechless, “…That is still the other people’s money, stealing it isn’t right.”

“你是一棵蘑菇,为什么比我这个普通人还循规蹈矩?”阎戮斜了他一眼。

“You’re a mushroom, so why do you follow the rules of society so strictly compared to me, an ordinary person?” Yan Lu tilted his head and asked.

这跟他是不是蘑菇有毛线关系?还有,你哪里普通?你丫生下来就是为了颠覆世界的好吗?

What the heck does that have anything to do with him being a mushroom? Plus, where are you ordinary? You’re freaking birth was to topple the world alright?

尚可无语道:“通过正当手段就能得到的东西,为什么非得用不法途径?”

Shang Ke was struck speechless again, “Things that you can obtain through the honest way, why must you do it in the lawless way?”

“因为这样最简单最直接。”阎戮回得理所当然。

“Because that’s the simplest and most direct way.” Yan Lu replied as if it was a matter of course.

尚可终于意识到这家伙的三观有多不正,他是打心底觉得仗势欺人、强取豪夺是对的……

Shang Ke was finally aware of just how wrong this guy’s three views are. He believed from the bottom of his heart that doing things by force is the way, to steal and take was the right way…

两人并没有在城内落脚,而是在城外的山林中选了一个地方露宿。

The two did not stay long in the city, instead, they found a place outside the city to sleep.

变成蘑菇的尚可,平时主要吸收草木精华,还有就是谷物、豆类、坚果、大白菜等食物,用另一个世界的说法,就是补充维生素b1。

Shang Ke who had turned into a mushroom, mainly needed to absorb plant essence, there were also grain, beans, nuts, white cabbage and foods like that. Using another world’s way to put it, he needs to replenish vitamin B1.

而阎戮这个非人非魔的家伙,也已经辟谷,想吃就吃,不想吃也可以不吃。最近他就想吃蘑菇,要求尚可继续给他炖蘑菇汤。

And Yan Lu this niether human or devil guy did not need to eat anymore. If he wanted to eat he could, if he didn’t he didn’t need to. Recently he only wanted to eat mushrooms, and asked Shang Ke to keep making him mushroom soup.

晚上,尚可找到一丛野蘑菇群,然后变成蘑菇混迹其中,外观颜色与它们一般无二。这样既省空间又方便修炼,还能起到很好的保护作用。

At night, Shang Ke had found a wild mushroom group and turned into a mushroom to mix within them, his appearance exactly the same as them. This kind of place can save space, be convienent for cultivation and would even act as a good protection.

不过阎戮一眼就能找到他,一旦找到他,就喜欢目不转睛地盯着他看。

However, Yan Lu could find him with on look. The moment he found him, he liked to stare at him without even blinking.

蘑菇尚可抖一抖,身体往旁边一棵大蘑菇靠去,躲进了大蘑菇的阴影中。

Mushroom Shang Ke shook a bit and he inched behind a bigger mushroom, hiding in it’s shadow.

阎戮有些不满,伸手将那棵大蘑菇给摘掉了,尚可再次暴露在某人饥饿的视线下。

Yan Lu was a bit unhappy and reached out to pluck out that big mushroom. So Shang Ke was once again exposed to someone’s hungry gaze,

蘑菇:“……”

Shang Ke: “……”

阎戮似乎还嫌不够,又将尚可周围所有蘑菇都摘掉了,只留下一棵蘑菇孤零零地立在树干上。

Yan Lu seem to feel that it was not enough and then plucked all the surrounding mushrooms, leaving behind a single mushroom on the tree trunk.

蘑菇:“……”

Shang Ke: “……”

这家伙到底是有多手欠?!就不能让他安静地做一棵不起眼的小蘑菇吗?

Just how bored was this guy?! Can’t he just let him quietly act as an unremarkable little mushroom?

尚可忍不下去了,重新化成人形。阎戮立刻拿起地上的衣服,将他裹住,然后安置在自己怀里,蹭了蹭,唔,果然还是这样好,既好闻又有手感。

Shang Ke couldn’t take it anymore and once again transformed into human. Yan Lu immediately picked up the clothes on the grond and wrapped him in it. After that, he placed him into his arms and rubbed a bit. Hn, as expected, this is better. Not only does it smell nice it’s also good to the touch.

“你的手在干什么?”尚可问。

“What is your hand doing?” Shang Ke asked.

“摸蘑菇。”

“Rubbing mushroom.”

尚可额头上暴出青筋:“有什么好摸的?我化成人形后和你一个样。”

A vein popped on Shang Ke’s forehead, “What is there to rub? I am the same as you when I turn into human form.”

“完全不一样。”阎戮一边摸一边对照,“你的头发比我软,身体比我瘦,皮肤比我白,腿比我细,这个……也比我小。”

“It’s completely different.” Yan Lu started to state his comparsions as he rubbed him, “Your hair is softer than mine, your body thinner than mine, your skin paler than mine, your legs more slender than mine. That… is also smaller than mine.”

阎戮盯着尚可两腿间,肯定道,“和你的本体长得差不多……”

Yan Lu stared at the object between Shang Ke’s legs and said with a certain tone, “It’s almost the same as your true form…”

尚可出离地愤怒了!哪里差不多?差多了好吗?

Shang Ke was truly angered! What it’s almost the same? It’s very different alright?

他从阎戮怀里挣脱出来,噌噌几下跳到一棵树的树顶上,然后化身蘑菇,傲视星空。

He broke out of Yan Lu’s arms and angrily jumped onto a tree, turned into a mushroom and turned his nose up to the starry sky.

阎戮接住飘然而下的衣衫,陷入沉思,是将他摘下来,还是将他摘下来呢?

Yan Lu caught the clothes that floated down and sank into contemplation. Should he pluck him off, or should he pluck him off?

正在这时,远处突然传来打斗声和怒斥声。

Right at this moment, the sound of battle and angry cursing could be heard from the distance.

尚可循声望去,只见那边剑光闪烁,灵气紊乱,似乎有一群修真者正在战斗。

Shang Ke followed the sound and saw the light of a sword flashing over there. The spiritual qi was in disorder, it looks like a cultivator was currently fighting.

阎戮也听到了响动,纵身跃上树梢,蹲在尚可身边的树干上,远远观战。

Yan Lu also heaerd the sound and leaped onto the tree, crouching by Shang Ke on his trunk and looked at the far fight.

看起来是五名修真者正在追杀三名修真者,三人明显不敌,很快败下阵来,其中的一人御剑而起,丢下两名同伴朝另一个方向逃去。五名修真者除了重伤一人,其他四人全都追了过去。

It looks like five cultivators were chasing and trying to kill three other cultivators. The three were clearly no match for the five and were quickly at a disadvantage. One of them defended with his sword and abandoned his two companions and escaped toward another direction. Besides one that was serious injuried among the five cultivators, the other four all chased after that one.

“走,去看看。”尚可恢复人形,捡起地上的衣服披上,然后快速朝那边掠去。

“Let’s go, let’s go take a look.” Shang Ke transformed back into a human and put back on the clothes on the ground then ran quickly over to the battle scene.

阎戮自然也紧随其后。

Yan Lu naturally followed closely behind.

打斗现场只剩下三人,一人已经死亡,另外两人重伤。

There were only three people left at the battle scene. One had already died while the other two were serious injuried.

尚可走到其中一名伤者身边,问道:“你还好吗?身上有没有药?”

Shang Ke walked near one of the injuried ones and asked, “Are you alright? Do you have any medicine on you?”

那名伤者见到尚可,眼中闪过一丝惊艳,随即回神,艰难地从储物戒中拿出一个药瓶。

A trace of shock flashed through that injuried man’s eyes for a moment before he immediately came back to his senses and took out a medicine bottle with much difficulty.

尚可接过来,从里面取出一颗药丸,喂他吃下。然后转身,准备去救治另外一名伤员,却见阎戮事不关己地蹲在一旁,表情淡漠,毫无波澜。

Shang Ke took it and took out a pill from within, then helped him eat it. He then turned around, prepared to help the other injuried man, but what he saw was Yan Lu crouching there, his expression indifferent without any emotions.

尚可并未多想,走过去查看了伤者的情况,发现他竟然已经气绝身亡。

Shang Ke did not think much about it and walked over to look at the situation of the other man, but the man had already taken his last breath.

阎戮将死者的储物戒取下来,用神识探测了一下,随后收进自己囊中。

Yan Lu took off the storage ring from the dead man then used his spirit sense to check it before putting it into his bag.

尚可张了张嘴,正想教育一番,又想到这里是修真世界,死人的东西就算他们不拿,别人也会拿。虽然他希望阎戮走正道,但有时候也不能太过迂腐。

Shang Ke gapped and was just about to educate him until he thought of how this was a cultivation world. Even if they did not take the dead man’s belongings someone else would. Although he wished for Yan Lu to walk the righteous path, he also cannot be too inflexible at times.

尚可并未发现,这名死者的脖子上插了一根针叶。此人并非死于重伤,而是被阎戮随手捡的一根针叶刺破了气管。

Shang Ke did not notice that the dead man’s neck had a needle-leaf. This man did not really die from serious injury, but from after Yan Lu punctured his windpipe with a needle-leaf he picked up.

“咳咳,多谢两位出手相助。”刚才被尚可喂药的男子捂着胸口坐起来,脸色已经恢复少许血色。

“Cough cough, many thanks for you two’s help.” The man who Shang Ke helped feed a pill to held his chest as he sat up. His face was already gaining back some of it’s blush.

“不用谢,举手之劳而已。”尚可对他笑了笑。

“Don’t worry about it, it was just a small thing.” Shang Ke smiled at him.

那人表情一怔,眼前的少年白发紫衫,体态轻盈,一张清丽无双的脸庞上,有一种略显慵懒的眼眸,眼角微翘,带着几分抚媚。微笑起来,如彩霞漫天,炫人眼目。

That man’s expression went slack. The youth before him had white hair and wore purple, his clear and attractive face also had a pair of conspicious languid eyes. The corners slightly slanted up, giving him a somewhat comforting air. When he smiled, it was as if colors filled the sky, so very dazzling to the eyes.

“在下余文杰,不知两位如何称呼?”他问的虽是两人,目光却始终在尚可一人身上。

“This one is Yu Wenjie, can this one know how to address you two?” Although he asked about the two of them, his gaze never moved away from Shang Ke.

“在下尚可,这位是阎戮。”尚可之所以敢报出“阎戮”的名字,是因为如今的修真界早已淡忘这位昔日的魔头。即使还有人记得,大多也只记得他的外号“阎罗魔尊”。

“This one is Shang Ke, this is Yan Lu.” As for why Shang Ke did not fear annoucing the name “Yan Lu”, it was because the current cultivation world had long forgotten this monster of the olden days. Even if there were people that remembered, most of the only remembered his nickname “Devil King Yanluo”.

TL Note: Yanluo = Yama who is the king of hell.

尚可又向余文杰询问了一下事情的经过。

Shang Ke then asked Yu Wenjie what happened.

余文杰来自飞星剑派,奉命护送一件宝物去云霄城。没想到消息走漏,中途遇上其他修真者的袭击,有四名师兄弟先后殒命,只剩下他和刚才逃跑的那名师兄。

Yu Wenjie came from Flying Star Sword Sect, they had received orders to escort a treasure to Yunxiao City. However, they didn’t expect the information to be leaked and midway there, were attacked by other cultivators. Four famous brothers died

尚可问道:“你们的宝物已经被人夺走了吗?需不需要我们帮忙?”

Shang Ke asked, “Your team’s treasure was already stolen? Do you need our help?”

余文杰苦笑:“任务失败,同门惨死,我一个人恐怕无力追查宝物的下落,还请两位送我去最近的城镇,好让我通知同门前来相助。”

Yu Wenjie bitterly smiled, “The mission failed while my sect members all died tragically. I’m afraid that by myself, I am powerless to investigate the whereabouts of the treasure. So I would like to ask you two to send me to the nearest town, to allow me to notify my sect to come help.”

“没问题。”尚可露出一个灿烂的笑容。

“That’s fine.” Shang Ke revealed a bright smile.

为阎戮竖立正确的三观,就从帮助这位不幸的道友开始吧。

For the sake of correcting Yan Lu’s three views, let’s start by helping this unfortunate cultivation friend.

TL Note: Three views – world, values and life
