第46章 人人都爱小仙菇

Chapter 46: Everyone Loves Little Immortal Mushroom (IV)

阎戮等了几天,发现尚可一直维持着小蘑菇的状态没有变化,于是干脆带着那截长蘑菇的腐木一起上路了。

Yan Lu waited for several days and Shang Ke continued to stay in his little mushroom form. As such, he straightforwardly took the decaying wood with the mushroom on it with him and left.

他并没有明确的目标,只是理所当然地跟着小蘑菇走。那家伙在自己身边活蹦乱跳时还不觉得,现在他安静了,才发现人生真是寂寞如雪。自己空白的世界,似乎就种了这么一棵蘑菇。总觉得有点碍事,却又舍不得拔掉。

He did not have a clear goal and was just following after the Little Mushroom before. When that guy was still lively jumping around him he didn’t feel anything, but now that he was quiet, he found that life was really lonely like snow. His blank white world seems to only have this mushroom planted. Although he sometimes felt he was annoying, he wasn’t willing to pluck it away.

“小蘑菇,你再不醒来,我就吃掉你。”阎戮一边无聊地转着手上的腐木,一边威胁着。

“Little Mushroom, if you don’t wake up now, I will eat you.” Yan Lu boredly turned the decaying wood in his hand as he threatened.

尚可被转得蘑菇头乱颤,差点没从木头上脱落下来。

Shang Ke was dizzy from all the random spinning and almost fell from the wood.

光华闪过,白花花的尚可化作人形出现在阎戮眼前。

Light flashed and a shining white Shang Ke in human form appeared in front of Yan Lu.

阎戮上下打量他,感觉似乎又瘦了,原本就很纤细的腰,如今更是不盈一握了。

Yan Lu looked him up and down and felt that he became even skinnier. The already thin waist from before seems to be even more fragile.

他伸手掐了掐,滑滑的,没有一点肉感。

He reached out and pinched it, it was smooth and did not have any feeling of substance.

尚可躲了一下,然后迅速从储物戒中拿出一件衣服穿上。

Shang Ke dodged aside and then quickly took out some clothes from the space ring and put it on.

“伤好了?”阎戮问。

“Your injuries healed?” Yan Lu asked.

“嗯。”尚可活动了一下手脚,然后笑着对阎戮说,“经过这些天的深思熟虑,我决定带你去虚天秘境。”

“Hm.” Shang Ke moved his limbs for a bit then smiled at Yan Lu, “After these past few days of careful deliberations, I decided to take you to the Heavenless Secret Realm.”

“虚天秘境?”

“Heavenless Secret Realm?”

“对。”尚可神采奕奕地解释道,“传闻此地藏有上古神君留下的宝物,里面必然有适合你修炼的功法。”

“Yup.” Shang Ke explained full of life, “Rumors say that that place has treasures left behind by an ancient God Lord, there must be some cultivation skills for you in there.”

按照这个世界原有的发展,魔君和魔菇在修真界兴风作浪时,不仅灭了好几个门派,而且还挖掘了许多古迹。但令人发指的是,他们只保留了修魔功法,而将大部分正道功法焚烧一空。导致数千年后,修真界陷入一法难求的窘迫状态,得道成仙的修真者更是凤毛麟角。魔兴而道微,修真界持续了长达五千年之久的魔乱时代。

According to the development of the original world, the Devil Lord and Devil Mushroom would stir up trouble in the cultivation realm. Not only would they annihilate several sects, they would also unearth many ancient sites. But what angers everyone even more was that they only retained the devil cultivation methods while burning most of the righteous cultivation methods. It led to the cultivation realm to sink into a very hard predicament millions of years later. Cultivators that become immortals became as rare as phoenix feathers and qilin horns. The devils flourished while the righteous diminished, the cultivation realm persisted a five million year period of disorder with the devils.

而罪魁祸首,便是尚可身边这位。系统让他将阎戮引上正道,而非将其灭杀,估计不只是为了修真界的太平,还有让他偿还因果、重振修真界之意。

The criminal ringleader of all of that was the very man by Shang Ke’s side. The System wanted him to lead Yan Lu to the righteous path instead of killing him. It probably wasn’t just for the peace and security of the cultivation realm, but to also have him repay his karma and understand what it means to be a righteous cultivator.

杀戮因他而起,亦将由他而熄。

The path of slaughter will start because of him, and will also end because of him.

确定目标,两人一起前往虚天秘境。路上,尚可不改初衷,依然以助人为乐,好几次都因为精怪的身份而被人追得东躲西藏。但他毫无怨言,始终坚守原则,宁愿自己受伤,也不愿残害生灵。

After determining the target, the two left for Heavenless Secret Realm. On the way there, Shang Ke did not change his original intentions and still helped others. He was attacked because of his identity as a devil spirit many times and had to hide, but he nevertheless held steady without complaint to his principle. He would rather injury himself and still be unwilling to harm others.

阎戮有一天终于忍不住问:“以你的心性,为何会堕入魔道?”

Yan Lu one day finally couldn’t hold back anymore and asked, “With your nature, why would you fall into the devil path?”

尚可笑道:“我即使成魔,也不会为祸人间。但若是让其他人成魔,那就未必能保得一方安宁了。”

Shang Ke smiled, “Even if I become a devil, I will not harm the human world. But if someone else becomes a devil, then I cannot guarantee that they will also be so kind.”

“你做得再多,又有谁会领情?”阎戮觉得这棵小蘑菇真是傻得可以。

“Who will feel grateful no matter how much you do?” Yan Lu felt that this little mushroom was really too stupid.

“我不需要别人领情。”尚可站在青山绿水间,张开双臂,大声道,“你看,这个世界多美。我来到这里,就是为了见识所有美好的事物,留下快乐,抛弃烦忧,做一棵高大雄伟的蘑菇。”

“I don’t need someone to feel grateful to me.” Shang Ke stood before the green hills and water, spreading his arms and saying loudly, “Look, there are many beautiful things in this world. I come here to experience all the beautiful things in this world, to leave behind happiness and abandon worry, to be a grand and majestic mushroom.”

阎戮沉默片刻,实事求是地说:“就算你修成魔神,也高大雄伟不起来。”

Yan Lu felt silent for a moment, before saying realistically, “Even if you become a Devil God, you would not become grand and majestic.”

尚可瞪了他一眼:“我这叫身短心高,你这种空有一副好皮囊的肤浅之人,是不会懂的。”

Shang Ke glared at him “I am short in body but grand in heart, you, a person that’s just all size without substance is the one that wouldn’t understand.”

阎戮对此不予置评,只是幽幽道:“修行之道,不进则退,你身为魔物,却背离魔道,实力恐怕永远也无法提升。”

Yan Lu did not comment on that and slowly said, “You are not going anywhere on the cultivation path. A devil object, yet departing the devil path, your strength will likely never increase.”

“我不是还有你吗?”

“Don’t I still have you?”

脱口而出的一句话,在阎戮心里荡起了一圈涟漪,那抹毫无城府的笑容,仿佛一朵莲花在他眼前绽放。他不知道小蘑菇为何能够如此坦然,如此心无芥蒂,明明他每次遇到危险,自己都只是冷眼旁观,从未想过出手相救。

The words he let slip caused a ripple in Yan Lu’s heart. That pure and innocent smile seem to bloom like a lotus flower in front of him. He did not know why Little Mushroom was so calm and free of ill-will. Every time he met danger, Yan Lu would just watch as a bystander and never thought about helping him before.

“我不会救你。”阎戮冷淡道,“即使你会死,我也不会救。”

“I won’t save you.” Yan Lu coldly said, “Even if you will die, I will not save you.”

“当然。”尚可一脸平和道,“以你如今的修为,根本无力对抗那些修真者,不救是明智之举。”

“Of course.” Shang Ke gently said, “With your current cultivation, you are powerless to confront those cultivators. Not saving me is a sensible decision.”

阎戮沉默不语。

Yan Lu felt silent.

尚可又看向他:“我问你,你若拥有强大的实力,会不会出手?”

Shang Ke looked at him, “Let me ask, if you have great strength, would you help?”

必须给他回答“会”,否则立刻友尽!尚可的目光炯炯有神。

He must reply “will” or he was finished! Shang Ke’s gaze was very bright and piercing.

“嗯。”阎戮背手而立,答道,“会。”他会把那些人全部杀光。

“Hm.” Yan Lu place his hands behind his back and replied, “I will.” He will kill all of those people.

尚可差点泪奔,不容易啊!他在这只魔头心里终于有了一席之地。

Shang Ke almost let his tears flowed, it wasn’t easy! He finally has a spot in this monster’s heart.

两个月后,尚可和阎戮抵达虚天秘境所在的鹤羽山。

Two months later, Shang Ke and Yan Lu arrived at the Crane Feather Mountain where the Heavenless Secret Relm resided at.

密境的入口在一口冷泉之下,冷泉中有一只守护兽,尚可第一次发挥他的物种优势,用一滴含有毒素的精血将它毒翻,然后顺利进入密境。

The entrance to the secret realm was under a cold spring. Within the cold spring was a guardian beast. Shang Ke displayed his species superiority for the first time by using a drop essence blood that contained poison to make it flip over from poison. Then they smoothly entered the secret realm.

虚天秘境是尚可已知的所有古迹中,最容易进入的一处。若非入口隐秘,恐怕早被人洗劫一空。

The Heavenless Secret Realm was the easiest ancient site to enter from all the other ones Shang Ke know of. If it weren’t for the entrance being hidden, it would have been emptied out long ago.

之后,两人在“主角光环”的照耀下,越过重重机关,成功抵达藏宝阁。

Afterwards, under the “main character halo”, the two of them passed by layer after layers of traps and arrived at the hidden treasure chamber.

然而,在阎戮刚踏入藏宝阁的一瞬间,周围景象突变,一股巨大的威压迎面而来,逼得他往后一仰,却硬生生抗住没有后退。

However, when Yan Lu had just stepped into the hidden treasure chamber, the surroundings changed and a pressuring power hit him, forcing Yan Lu to lean back a bit, but he still forcefully resisted and did not fall back.

“哼。”耳边响起一声冷哼,仿佛惊雷一般,震得阎戮浑身一颤。

“Hmph.” A cold snort echoed from the side like a clap thunder that caused shook Yan Lu.

身后的尚可并没有听到,只是见阎戮保持着踏出一步的动作,一动不动地站在门口,感觉有些奇怪。

From behind, Shang Ke did not hear anything. He merely saw Yan Lu maintaining a posture of taking a step then stopped moving at the entrance. It was rather strange.

他绕过阎戮,也迈步踏进了藏宝阁的大门。

He bypassed Yan Lu and walked into the hidden treasure chamber.

阎戮瞳孔收缩,无法出声提醒,只能看着尚可从他身边越过。

Yan Lu’s pupils contracted. He couldn’t make a sound to warn him, he could only watch as Shang Ke walked passed him.

原本以为尚可也会如他一般被镇住,没想到他竟然毫无阻碍地走进了藏宝阁。

He had thought that Shang Ke would be subdued like he was, but Shang Ke had entered the hidden treasure chamber without any obstruction.

阎戮心中奇怪,存留在藏宝阁中的那抹灵识,同样奇怪。

Yan Lu felt it was a bit strange, the spirit record within the hidden treasure chamber felt the same way.

虚天秘境乃上古仙人渡劫前的避世之地,在他渡劫之后,特意留下一抹灵识,一方面为了帮有缘人开启宝阁,另一方面也为了阻止魔道中人进入。

The Heavenless Secret Realm was the seclusion spot of an ancient cultivator so he could pass tribulation. After he passed his tribulation, he left behind a spirit record. On one hand, the spirit record could help people open the treasure chamber, while on the other hand, it would prevent people of the devil path from entering.

刚才阎戮一脚踏入,立刻被那抹灵识所察觉。阎戮身上没有魔气,而且拥有极高的修仙潜质,然而,那抹灵识却轻易看出了他隐藏在灵魂身处的魔性。仙根魔性,如此矛盾的存在,竟集于一身。成神成魔,不过一线之隔。但魔性明显强于仙根,充满血腥和黑暗,如妖鸣鬼泣,令人胆寒。

When Yan Lu took a step in, the spirit record immediately sensed it. Yan Lu’s body did not have any devil qi and he has an extremely high level immortal cultivation potential. However, that spirit record could easily see through the devil nature of his in his soul. Immortal root yet devil nature, such a contradicting existence actually exists in this world. Turning into a God or Devil, it was only a fine line. But the devil nature clearly was stronger than his immortal root. Such a man reeking of blood and darkness, like the cry of a devil causing fear in others.

灵识不允许如此危险的人物进入宝阁,若让他修得功法,难保日后不会为修真界带来难以预料的动乱。

The spirit record cannot allow such a dangerous person to enter the treasure chamber, if he allowed such a man to cultivate, it was hard to predict what kind of turmoil he would bring to the cultivation world in the future.

正当他想要将此人驱逐之际,又有一人踏入了宝阁的禁制。

Just when he wanted to expel this man, another person walked into the restriction of the treasure chamber.

灵识再次震惊。

The spirit record was once again shocked.

最先进入的男子拥有仙人之质,却包藏魔心;而后来的这名少年,明明是修魔之体,却拥有无比纯净的神性。两人截然相反,却同样矛盾。

The very first man has the quality of an immortal, but contains the heart of a devil. The youth after him has the body of a devil cultivator, yet an incomparably pure divinity. The two were complete opposites yet the same contradictions.

少年与那名男子并肩而立的瞬间,灵识从那名男子身上感觉到的危险气息,竟然烟消云散。原本死寂一片的世界,仿佛生机乍现,花开遍野,阴阳两极,生生不息。

The moment the youth was by the man’s side, the spirit record felt the dangerous presence on that man was suddenly gone. The world that was originally deathly still acted as if it was reborn. Flowers bloomed, the two ends of Yin and Yang gave birth to life without stopping.

如此奇特的景象,灵识从未见过。

The spirit record had never seen such a peculiar scene.

莫非是因为他避世太久,以至于与时代脱节了?如今的修真界,难道遍地都是这样的奇葩?

Could it be that he was in seclusion for too long so he was too out of touch with the current period? Was the cultivation realm nowadays full of strange people like this everywhere?

这二人,分则成魔,合则成神,实在是太不可思议了!

These two people, one was kind but turned a devil while the cruel turned into a god, this was really too unbelievable!

灵识打开禁制,放他们进来。他很想看看他们未来到底会发展成何种模样。

The spirit record opened the restrictions and let the two in. he wanted to see what kind of future development the two would bring.

阎戮发现禁锢他的那股力量,在尚可进入后不久便消失了。他看了看身边的尚可,又看了看挂在正墙上的那副画像,画像中画的是一位仙风道骨的老者。看似普通的,却透着令人难以忽视的浩然之气。

Yan Lu noticed that the power that was imprisoning him disappeared not long after Shang Ke entered. He looked at Shang Ke by his side, then looked at the portrait hanging on the wall. There was an ancient old cultivator in the portrait. It looked very normal yet contained an overwhelming aura that was hard to ignore.

阎戮看了一会,收回视线,开始打量这间藏宝阁,阁中不仅有各种功法秘籍,还有不少奇珍异宝。

Yan Lu looked at it for a while then took back his gaze. He started to look around the hidden treasure chamber. Not only were there all sorts of rare cultivation manuals around, there were also many treasures.

阎戮并没有急着取宝,心中始终对墙上那副画像带着几份戒备。

Yan Lu did not hurry to take any treasure, the portrait on the wall kept him on his guard.

尚可却毫不在意,胸怀坦荡,反而不受其限。

But Shang Ke did not care, as an open and candid person, he did not hold back at all.

正当他搜宝搜得不亦乐乎时,画像中的灵识说话了:“小家伙,别急。”

Just as he was about to dig through all the treasure with extreme joy, the spirit record in the portrait spoke, “Little guy, hold on.”

尚可抬起头,看了看画像,问阎戮:“刚才是他在说话?”

Shang Ke raised his head, looked at the portrait then asked Yan Lu, “He was talking just now?”

阎戮面无表情地点头。

Yan Lu nodded expressionlessly.

尚可虽然靠“先知”找到了虚天秘境,但并非每一个发展细节都清楚。灵识的存在,事先也只有模糊的印象。如今听到他说话,脉络才逐渐清晰。

Although Shang Ke relied on “prior information” to find the Heavenless Secret Realm, he was not clear on all the details of the plot. The existence of the spirit record only has a vague impression in his memories. Now that he heard him speak, he slowly started to understand.

“前辈是谁?”尚可问。

“Who is this Senior?” Shang Ke asked.

“老道‘罗合’,数千年渡劫成仙,留下一抹灵识,在此等候有缘人。”

“This old cultivator is ‘Luo He’, millions of years ago, I passed my tribulation and became an immortal, leaving behind this spirit record to wait for someone fated.”

尚可笑道:“前辈同意让我们进来,想必我们便是前辈的有缘人。”

Shang Ke smiled, “Since Senior has allowed us in, then presumably we are the fated people.”

“呵呵,小家伙很聪明。”那抹灵识继续道,“宝库里的东西,你们尽可取用。不过,有几样宝物设有禁制,我将解禁之法教给你,免得你被禁制所伤。”

“Hehe, little guy, you’re quite smart.” That spirit record continued, “The things within this treasure chamber, you two are free to use. However, there are several treasures that have restrictions placed on them, I will teach you the way to lift the restriction, so that you won’t accidentally hurt yourself.”

灵识后面几句话用的是“你”,而非“你们”,说明他只愿将解禁之法教给尚可。

The spirit record used “you” instead of “you two”, meaning that he was only willing to teach Shang Ke the way to lift restrictions and not Yan Lu.

阎戮并不在意,他深知小蘑菇的秉性,只要自己开口,他什么都会给。

Yan Lu did not care, knowing Little Mushroom’s character, as long as he spoke he would give anything to him.

尚可问道:“前辈,我们受您馈赠,不知该如何回报?”

Shang Ke asked, “Senior, is there any way for us to pay back in return after taking your gifts?”

“毋须报答,只愿你们潜心修炼,摒除邪念,终成正道。”

“There is no need to repay as long as you two focus fully on cultivation and rid yourself of evil desires, keeping to the righteous path.”

灵识说完,将解禁之法悉数传予尚可,而后又密语道:【你身边的男子,魔性自成,日后须万分小心。】

After the spirit record spoke, it taught Shang Ke the way to lift the restrictions, then added in secret, 【The man by your side has a devil’s nature, you must be very careful.】

尚可同样用密语回道:【我知道,他原本即将渡劫成魔,是我强行阻拦,令他渡劫失败,前尘尽忘。】

Shang Ke replied back in secret as well, 【I know. He was about to pass the devil tribulation before, but I forcefully obstructed him so he failed and forgot his past.】

对一抹灵识,尚可不介意据实以告。

To a spirit record, Shang Ke did not mind telling the truth.

【原来如此,难怪他虽有仙根,却带着魔性……等等,一个修为大成的魔头,为何会有仙根?】灵识细想之下,惊愕道,【是你!】

【So it was like that, no wonder he has an immortal root yet an obsessed nature… wait, a monster that has great accomplishments in cultivation, why would he have an immortal root?】 The spirit record thought a bit then said in shock, 【It’s you!】

尚可笑了笑:【我毁了他的修为,愿替他成魔,助他得道。】

Shang Ke smiled, 【I destroyed his cultivation and willingly took his place to turn into a devil so he can become an immortal.】

灵识终于明白为何会在这两人身上见到如此奇异的景象。眼前这名少年,竟然为了一个魔头,不惜堕入魔道,以修魔之体,助其步入仙途。

The spirit record finally understood why he saw such a bizarre scene from the two. The youngster before his eyes had actually fell into devil path for a monster without hesitation, to use his own body to take the devil cultivation to help the other step onto the immortal path.

这让他想起了悲誓宏愿的地藏菩萨:“地狱不空,誓不成佛,众生度尽,方证菩提。我不入地狱谁入地狱?”

This made him recall the sad oath of the great Buddha: “Before the hell is empty, I will not become Buddha. After all sentient beings are saved, will I attain Buddhahood. If I don’t go hell, who will?”

原本以为世上再无地藏菩萨那般大慈大悲之人,没想到如今却在一只精怪身上,发现了同样的悲悯之心。

The man that believed the world would never have another person like the Buddha who is so compassionate and sad, and unexpectedly found it within a devil spirit. The same compassionate heart.

【孩子,】灵识温声道,【我相信你必能达成所愿。老道再送你一份礼物。】

【Child,】 The spirit record gently spoke, 【I believe that you can obtain your wish. This old one will gift you another.】

一道金光闪烁,逐渐在空中凝聚成一颗种子,然后缓缓没入尚可右胸。

A golden light flashed by and gradually condensed into a seed in the air that then slowly entered Shang Ke’s right chest.

“这是什么?”尚可摸着胸口,好奇地问。

“What is this?” Shang Ke rubbed his chest, asking curiously.

四周却是一片寂静,再无人回应。

But the surroundings were nevertheless quiet. No one responded.

SnowTime: It’s almost as if the author is telling me, xianxias are long, thus the chapters of a xianxia arc must also be long! //flips tables

    Phew, finally ready to set up camp after bingeing (crying) my way through the arcs ^^ thanks for all the good work, looking forward to what’s to come! :3 btw, just noticed the first arc without a re (other than arc 4) is arc 9…. guess there are still plenty of sad endings to come, though there hopefully won’t be any more failed ones… ah, but I must admit, the author pulled one on us all when she first revealed that he could redo the sad endings, only to make the next arc un-redoable… TT__TT (at least arc 4 ended quickly and didn’t linger on the sad ML, like the roses ending of arc 2…)

    Not only Shang Ke, even that old spirit was so kind :'<
    This is so different from xianxia I've ever read, where even the most harmless inheritance always have something sinister in nature.
    These people in the world are quite kind compared to that jungle-like world

    Thanks for the chapter, Snowy! ( '﹃'⑉)♡
