Chapter 5: I Only Need 72 Hours To Fall In Love With You (V)


   盖布里甩了甩手,神态如女王一般高高在上:“我等这一天已经等了很久了,以前受的鸟气,今天全都还给你。”

Gabriel shook his hand, his bearing like a queen that was far above him, “I’ve waited for this day for a long time already. The anger I received from before, I will return it all back to you today.”

   打完这一巴掌,他整个人神清气爽,仿佛完成了一桩伟大的事业。

After he slapped the other once, he felt his entire person was much refreshed, like he had completed a great project.

   尚可只是冷冷地盯着他。

Shang Ke only coldly glared at him.

   盖布里好整以暇地摆弄了一下衣领,手指悄然关闭领口下的干扰器,随即弯腰帮尚可拉了拉被子,语气温柔道:“你看起来很疲惫,好好休息,我下次再来看你。只不过……下次再见,可能就是在墓地了。”最后这句话,声音压得很低,几乎是贴着尚可的耳朵说的。

Gabriel calmly fiddled with his collar, his finger quietly closing the interference devic in his collar. Immediately, he stoop down to pull Shang Ke’s blanket, his tone gentle as he said, “You look really tired, make sure to rest well. I will come see you again next time. It’s just that…the next time would be farewell, you might be in the cemetery.” His last words were very soft, he was almost sticking next to Shang Ke’s ear as he said it.

   说完,他退后一步,背着监控露出一个愉快的笑容,然后扬长而去。

With that said, he took a step back, revealing a cheerful smile with his back against the monitor then turned and left.

   那小人得志的模样,真让人恨不得踹上两脚。

That lowly person’s accomplished look really made one wish that they could kick him twice.

   原主凯奇确实有些嚣张任性,对盖布里也不怎么友好,但也没必要在他快死的时候,还来补一刀吧?这得多大仇?更何况凯奇的父亲还是他的恩人兼养父,恩将仇报这一招使得不要太顺手。

The original Cage was a bit arrogant and willful, and wasn’t too good to Gabriel, but it was not necessary for him to still stick a knife in him when he’s about dead right? How great must his hate be? Furthermore, Cage’s father was his benefactor and foster father, to bite the hand that fed him, he shouldn’t do it so easily.

   尚可深沉地望着天花板,思考着如何在手不能动、口不能言的情况下,给盖布里一个教训。想着想着,眼睛开始酸涩,唔,好困,先睡一觉再说……

Shang Ke stared at the ceiling, deep in thought. He was thinking on how to give that Gabriel a lesson under the conditions of where his hands cannot move, and his mouth cannot speak. As he kept thinking, his eyes soured. Oh, so sleepy, let’s sleep first…

   拉威尔走进病房时,床上的男孩还在沉睡,柔软的头发贴在额前,发尖微微翘起,带着几分慵懒。窗外的夕阳轻轻在他那张略显削瘦的脸上拂过,留下淡淡的红晕。

When Ravel entered the sickroom, the boy on the bed was fast asleep. His soft hair was stuck to his forehead, the ends slightly sticking up, making him appear somewhat languid. The sunset out the window passed, leaving a faint blush on his thin face.

   拉威尔轻步走到他身边,伸手拂开几缕耷拉在他眉眼上的发丝。突然,他动作一顿,视线落在他的眼角边,那里有一道浅浅的划痕。若非仔细留意,很容易就会被忽略。

Ravel walked over quietly to his side and reached out to brush away the hair drooping over his eyes. Suddenly, his action stopped, his line of sight falling to the corner of Cage’s eyes. There was a shallow scratch. If one wasn’t careful and mindful, it was very easy to overlook.

   他每天都陪在凯奇身边,对他身上的伤痕一清二楚,而这道划痕,在几个小时前,还是不存在的。

He accompanied Cage everyday, so he was completely clear on what kind of injuries the other carried. This scratch, did not exist a few hours ago.

   照顾凯奇的医生和护士都是精挑细选的,身上绝对不会携带任何尖锐物。平时护理时也会戴上消毒手套,做事非常小心,别说划伤,就是一点磕磕碰碰也不会有。

The doctors and nurses that took care of Cage were carefully selected, nothing sharp would be carried on them at all cost. Normally, the nurses would also wear sterilized gloves, working very carefully. Let alone injuring him with a scratch, they wouldn’t even do any kind of knocking or bumping into him.

   拉威尔沉默片刻,走出病房,对门口的守卫问道,“今天有人来看过凯奇吗?”

Ravel fell silent for a moment, left the room then asked the guard, “Did someone come see Cage today?”

   守卫回道:“盖布里少爷来过,两个小时前离开的。”

The guard replied, “Young Master Gabriel came before, he left two hours ago.”

   “将军,怎么了?”卡恩见拉威尔脸色不对,忙走过来问道。

“General, what happened?” Kahn saw that Ravel’s face was amiss and quickly walked up to ask.

   拉威尔目光微沉:“去监控室。”

Ravel’s eyse were gloomy, “I’m going to the monitor room.”

   两人来到监控室,身边还跟着几名负责照顾凯奇的医生。

The two went to the monitor room while the doctor in charge of taking care of Cage also followed them.

   监控室的安保员见到他们,立刻起身行礼。

When the security person of the monitor room saw them, he immediately stood up to salute to him.

   拉威尔摆摆手,吩咐道:“将监控调到两个小时前。”

Ravel waved his hand and ordered him, “Change the monitor to two hours ago.”

   安保员立刻照办。

The security man immediately did as he was told.

   监控画面快速倒退,直到盖布里出现在镜头中才停止。

The monitor scene quickly reversed until the scene where Gabriel showed up did it stop.

   拉威尔看着盖布里走进病房,然后在凯奇的床边站了片刻,随即弯身给他盖了盖被子,说了句“下次再来看他”,接着便离开了。整个过程似乎并无异状。

Ravel watched as Gabriel walked into the sickroom, then stood at his bedside for a while. Following that, he bent down to help him fix his blanket before saying “I will come see you again” then left. The entire event had nothing wrong.

   拉威尔又重复看了几遍,下令道:“将盖布里进入病房到他离开这段时间的视频进行层次解析。”

Ravel repeatedly watched it before giving the order, “Analyze the video from when Gabriel entered the sickroom.”

   卡恩问道:“将军,你怀疑盖布里身上带了干扰器?”

Kahn asked him, “General, you’re suspicious that Gabriel carried an interference device?”

   拉威尔面无表情,眼神冰冷。他不是怀疑,是肯定。

Ravel’s face was expressionless, his eyes cold. He wasn’t suspicious, he was certain.

   不过几分钟,解析完毕。盖布里进入病房后所发生的事情,被完整地呈现在画面中。

However, in just a few minutes, he analyzing was complete. The scene from when Gabriel entered the sick room was completely cleared up in front of them.

   【刑讯的滋味怎么样?】开口的第一句话就让在场的人感到不快,随后又听他接着说,【看看你现在苟延残喘的样子,真是可怜。】

【How is the taste of torture?】 The very first words he said made everyone feel unhappy, then they heard him continue, 【ake a look at you now, struggling at death’s door. Really pitiful.】

   【你知不知道自己已经没有几天好活了?】

【Do you know that you already don’t have many days alive?】

   监控室的人倒吸了一口凉气,不敢相信盖布里竟然会对凯奇说出如此刻薄的话。

The people in the monitor room all sucked in a breath, they couldn’t believe that Gabriel dare to say such harsh words to Cage.

   等听他说到“比克家族和荣誉,都将由我继承”时,众人都不由得皱起眉头。

When they heard him say “the family and honor will all be inherited by me”, everyone involunterily frowned.

   确实,只要凯奇一死,作为养子的盖布里就是乌特雷将军唯一的继承人。乌特雷和凯奇用生命换来的荣誉,最后却要落在这样的人手中?

It was true, as long as Cage dies, as Utrecht’s adopted son, Gabriel would be on the only successor. The honor Utrecht and Cage exchanged with their lives would end up in the hands of this kind of person?

   “啪!”视频中突然传来一声脆响,众人不敢置信地看着这一幕,盖布里竟然打了凯奇一巴掌!

“Pa!” A crisp sound echoed from the room. Every watched the screen in disbelief, Gabriel dared to slap Cage!

   监控室陷入一片死寂,所有人都出离的愤怒了。视频中,凯奇无助地躺在病床上,用带着怒意的眼神望着盖布里,似有千言万语,却无力表述。在刑讯室饱受折磨时,他都不曾露出过如此脆弱、如此愤怒的表情。亲人的侮辱,对他而言,恐怕比敌人的虐待更令他锥心。

The monitor room entered a state of deathly stillness, all the people were angered beyond words. Within the video, Cage helplessly lied on the hospital bed, his eyes full of anger as he stared at Gabriel. He seem to have a thousand words to say, but he was powerless to say them.

   盖布里离开后,凯奇默默望着天花板,碧绿的眼瞳逐渐蒙上了一层雾色,看起来似要落泪,却始终没有落下。他若是哭出来还好,偏偏如此压抑自己,让人看着更加难受。

After Gabriel left, Cage looked silently at the ceiling. A layer of mist gradually formed in his dark green eyes, like he was about to shed tears. But they never fell. It would had been better if he had cried, but the way he stifled himself made everyone feel even worse.

   “盖布里怎么能……”卡恩的话还没说完,便感觉一股寒意从旁边传来。只见拉威尔表情冷硬,目光如锥,浑身散发着凌厉的肃杀之气。

“How could Gabriel…” Kahn hadn’t even finished his words when he felt a cold chill from his side. He could only see Ravel’s extremely cold expressions and sight that could drill into a person. His entire person was emitting a powerful murderous aura.

   卡恩可以想象拉威尔此刻的心情,他是个严谨单调的男人,除了工作就是工作,生活索然无味。但凯奇的出现,就像一抹绚丽的色彩,点亮了他灰白的世界,让他整个人都变得柔和起来。

Kahn could imagine Ravel’s current mood. For such a rigid and monotonous man, besides work it is still work. His life was very dull. But ever since Cage’s appearance, it was like a magnificent color was smeared, his world was gradually being colored and brightened. It caused his entire person to become gentler.

   或许连他自己都没发现,他对凯奇的重视已经远远超出了普通的界限,每天悉心看护,舍不得他受一点伤害。而如今,这个被他当宝贝一般呵护的男孩,却在他眼皮底下被人欺辱,又怎能不令他愤怒?

Perhaps the man himself have not noticed how his attachment to Cage was already out of the normal margin. He would put in all his heart to nurse him everyday and made sure he did not get even the slightly bit injured. And nowadays, the boy who was cherished by him like a treasure was humiliated by another person in front of his eyes. How could he not get angry?

   凯奇无法动弹,无法言语,若非拉威尔细心,他今天所受的委屈恐怕永远也不会被人发现。

Cage was unable to move or speak. If Ravel wasn’t attentive, then perhaps the humiliation he received today would never be found out by anyone.

   想到这里,卡恩对盖布里的评价降到了冰点,让这样的人继承比克家族,简直就是对乌特雷将军和凯奇的侮辱。

When he thought to that point, Kahn’s evalutation toward Gabriel fell to the freezing point. If they let this kind of person inherit the family, it was simply an insult toward General Utrecht and Cage.

   “卡恩。”拉威尔突然开口,“看好盖布里,等我回去。”

“Kahn.” Ravel suddenly spoke, “Keep an eye on Gabriel, wait for me.”

   说完,他转身走出监控室,大步朝凯奇的病房走去。

He left immediately after he said that, walking with large strides to where Cage’s sickroom was.

   尚可已经醒来,正在享受护士姐姐温柔的服侍。

Shang Ke was already awake, enjoying the big sister nurse’s gentle care.

   这时,一只大手伸过来,取走护士手中的毛巾,轻柔地给尚可擦脸。

At this moment, a large hand reached over to take away the towel in the nurse’s hand, softly helping Shang Ke wipe his face.

   闻到熟悉的气息,尚可睁开眼,见到拉威尔,立刻露出一个笑容。毕竟一直受他照顾,不可能对他一点好感都没有。

When he scented the familiar scent, Shang Ke opened his eyes. Seeing that it was Ravel, he revealed a smile. After all, he had constantly received this man’s care, it was impossible for him to not have a favorable impression of him.

   拉威尔眼神微暗,一直看着他,完全没有移开视线的打算。

Ravel’s eyes darken and continued to watch him. He showed no intention to move his gaze away.

   尚可习以为常,这个男人有时候很喜欢盯着某件东西看很久。比如他的眼睛,他的手,他的食物,他的衣服,他的杯子,他的床……总之,病房里所有东西,都被他巨细无遗地盯视过。

Shang Ke was used to this, this man sometimes likes to stare at something for a long time. For example, his eyes, his hands, his food, his clothes, his cup, his bed…in short, everything in this room had been stared at by him.

   如果这些东西有自己的意识,恐怕都要被他锐利的眼神给吓瘫了。

If all of these things had a consciousness, they would’ve probably been frighten stiff by his sharp eyes.

   不过,这个男人今天的眼神似乎与平时有些不同,冰冷中带着几分怜惜,怜惜中带着几分愤怒,愤怒中又夹杂着几分忧郁……别问他为什么能从一双眼睛中琢磨出这么多内容,实在是因为他无聊得很啊!

However, this man’s eyes were a bit different from usual. In those ice-cold eyes were some tenderness, within the tenderness was some anger, within the anger was some depression… Don’t ask him why he was able to obtain so much content from just a pair of eyes, it’s really because he was just too bored!

   “想出去逛逛吗?”拉威尔问。

“Do you want to go out for a bit?” Ravel asked him.

   噢!您终于想到要带我出去放风了吗?尚可眼中闪过一抹亮丽的神采,就像两颗跳跃的星星。

Oh! You finally thought of letting me go out to get some fresh air? A bright and beautiful light went through Shang Ke’s expression, like two stars jumping in the sky.

   拉威尔眼神一柔,掀开被子,将他抱起来,轻轻放在轮椅上,然后推着他朝楼下的花园走去。

Ravel’s eyes turned softer and he moved aside the blanket, picked him up and gently placed him in a wheelchair. Then he started to push him to the garden downstairs.

   轮椅功能齐全,可悬浮飞行,如果尚可的手脚没有瘫痪,完全可以操作轮椅四处乱窜。

The wheelchair had all functions, it could float and fly. If Shang Ke’s hands and feet weren’t paralzed, it was entirely possible to him to use the wheelchair and go all over the place.

   这座医院直属皇家,只接收王公贵族和立过特殊功勋的军官,环境舒适,景色怡人。

This hospital was the royal family’s, it only received nobility and officers that done special achievements. The environment was cozy and the scenery delightful.

   尚可吹着暖风,闻着花香,露出一副舒服得不得了的样子。

Being blown by the warm breeze and smelling the fragrant flowers, Shang Ke revealed a very comfortable appearance.

   说真的,如果他没有瘫痪,争取度过三次赴死任务,留在这个世界挥霍人生也是不错的选择。他现在有身份有地位有靠山,不愁吃不愁穿,跟着主角挥洒青春,生活简直不能更美好。

To speak truthfully, if he wasn’t paralyzed, fighting to pass those three near-death missions then staying in this world to spend the remainder of his life wasn’t a pretty bad choice. He now had identity, status and supporter. He did not need to worry about food or clothes. He could just follow after the main character and live his youth, life simply could not be more wonderful.

   “拉威尔阁下。”这时,一名身着军装的帅气男子抱着一大束花走过来,先向拉威尔行了一礼,然后看向尚可,微笑道,“凯奇少爷,你好。”

“Sire Ravel.” At this moment, a handsome man wearing the military uniform holding large bouquet of flowers walked over. He first saluted to Ravel then looked at Shang Ke, gently smiling, “Young Master Cage, hello.”

   尚可朝拉威尔望去,后者介绍道:“这位是你父亲旧友的儿子,罗伊大校。”

Shang Ke looked toward Ravel who introduced him, “This is your father’s old friend’s son. Senior Colonel Roy.”

   尚可点头见礼。

Shang Ke nodded to him as a greeting.

   “凯奇,这束花送给你。”罗伊将手里的花束轻轻放在尚可的怀里,眨眨眼道,“这是我亲手挑选的,希望你喜欢。”

“Cage, this bouquet of flowers is for you.” Roy gently placed the bouquet of flowers in Shang Ke’s arms, blinking, “The flowers were personally chosen by me, I hope you like them.”

   花束很大,几乎淹没了尚可半张脸,两只碧绿的眼睛从花束中露出来,就像一只躲藏在花丛中的小猫,囧萌囧萌的,看得罗伊作捧胸状。

The bouquet was very large, almost covering half of Shang Ke’s face. Only two dark green eyes were revealed among the bonquet, like a little kitten that was hiding in a cluster of flower. It was cute beyond words, causing Roy to do the action of holding his chest.

   刑讯时的他,如一只凶猛的猎豹,即使失去利爪,也不减锐气。但此刻的他,温和柔顺,仿佛小动物一般无害。谁能想到在如此纤弱的身躯下,潜藏着那样一颗坚韧不屈的心。强烈的反差,让人无法不为之动容。

While he was under torture, he was like a fierce cheetah, even when he lost his sharp claws, it did not lower his strong spirit. But the current him was so very gentle, as harmless as a small animal. Who would had thought that in such a fragile body, such a tenacious heart laid beneath the surface. It was such an intense contrast that caused people to be emotionally moved by him.

   “我一直想来探望你,但又担心打扰你静养,如今见到你精神饱满的样子,我终于可以放心了。”罗伊眼中透着真诚的喜悦,“等你康复,请务必让我带你去王城好好游玩一番。”

“I really wanted to come visit you, but keep worrying that I could disturb your rest. Now that I see you are so full of vigor, I can finally feel relieved.” Roy’s eyes carried genuine joy, “After you recover, allow me to take you around King City to entertain you.”

   话虽如此说,但他们都知道恐怕没有这个机会了。

Although he said that, they all knew that it was unlikely to happen.

   “罗伊,人已经见过,你可以退下了。”拉威尔突然开口,打断罗伊对尚可的殷勤。

“Roy, since you’ve seen him, then you can leave now.” Ravel suddenly spoke and interrupted Roy from taking Shang Ke’s attention.

   罗伊只能遗憾地耸耸肩,行礼之后便转身离开了。

Roy could only regretfully shrug his shoulders, then saluted and turned around to leave.

   拉威尔蹲在尚可身边,问道:“你觉得罗伊怎么样?”

Ravel crouched down by Shang Ke’s side and asked, “How is Roy in your eyes?”

   怎么样?挺好的啊。尚可不解地望着拉威尔。

How is he? Pretty good. Shang Ke looked at Ravel puzzled.

   “那么,”拉威尔继续道,“如果让罗伊代替盖布里,继承你父亲的事业,你是否同意?”

“Then,” Ravel continued, “If we let Roy take Gabriel’s place to inherit your father’s cause, would you agree?”
