Chapter 6: I Only Need 72 Hours To Fall In Love With You (VI)


 

   “如果让罗伊代替盖布里,继承你父亲的事业,你是否同意?”

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

   同意,太同意了!难道拉威尔也看穿盖布里心胸狭窄、不堪大用的本质了?

Agreed, totally agreed! Perhaps Ravel also seen through Gabriel’s narrow-minded self and untenable nature?

   拉威尔见他点头,便不再多言,只是摸了摸他的头。

When Ravel saw him nod, he said no more and merely rubbed his head.

   尚可这才注意他的右手手心竟然有一颗黑痣,据说掌心有痣的人,不但大富大贵,而且具有领导才能;也有人说这是前世情缘未了,今生为了与恋人相遇而留下的记号;佛家却普遍认为,掌心有痣之人,乃天煞孤星命。

Only then did Shang Ke notice a mole on palm of Ravel’s right hand. It was said that people who have a mole on their palm are not only very rich, they also possess the talent of leadership. There were also people who said this was because his previous incarnation’s predestined love was not fulfilled, so this was left behind to allow him to meet his lover in his current life. Buddhism though, generally believed ath the mole on the hallow of their hands was the bane of others’ existence.

   后两者无从考究,但面前的拉威尔绝对是富贵与领导才能兼备的人生赢家。

There was no way to investigate the last two, but the Ravel in front of him unconditionally is rich and talented in leadership, a winner of life that has both.

   尚可并不知道,事实上拉威尔三样占全了。

Shang Ke did not know that Ravel actually fulfills all three.

   “完了,回去吧,我陪你用餐。”拉威尔推着尚可回到病房,吩咐护士将餐点送过来。

“It’s late, let’s return. I will eat with you.” Ravel then pushed Shang Ke back to the sickroom and told the nurse to bring some food over.

   尚可吃什么,拉威尔就吃什么,就算只有一碗白粥,他也吃得面不改色。这一点,尚可还是挺佩服他的。

What Shang Ke ate, Ravel would also eat. Even if it was just a bowl of plain rice congee, he would eat it without a single change in his facial expression. This point made Shang Ke rather admire him.

   这些天他的伙食虽然有所改善,但他的身体实际上已经虚弱到极点,根本无法摄入太多营养。无论他看起来有多精神,身体却是日渐削瘦。

Although his food these days had gotten somewhat better, his body was in actuality, weak to the extreme. He was simply unable to take in too much nutrition. So no matter how spirited he appeared, he body was getting thinner day by day.

   班尼医生说过,他每多活一天,都是一个新的奇迹,换做其他人,早就坚持不下去了。他知道凯奇为何而坚持,他想亲眼见证新帝国的成立。

Doctor Banny said before, for every day he lived, it was a new miracle. If it were other people, they would had long lost their will to continue living on. He knew the reason why Cage continued to persevere, he wanted to witness the establishment of the new empire with his own eyes.

   拉威尔第一次犹豫,不想宣布这条消息,害怕他的心愿一旦达成,便会毫不留恋地离开人世。

Ravel wavered for the first time. He didn’t want to announce the news, he was afraid once his dream was fulfilled, he would die without hesitation.

   拉威尔舍不得,放不下……

Ravel couldn’t bear to part with him, he also couldn’t let him go…

   晚上,拉威尔回到府邸。

At night, Ravel returned to his mansion.

   卡恩上前道:“属下将盖布里软禁在客房,将军打算如何处理?”

Kahn stepped forward to say, “This subordinate has Gabriel under house arrest in the guest room. How do you plan to deal with him, Genera?”

   拉威尔神色一冷,大步朝客房走去。

Ravel’s face quickly chilled and walked to the guest room.

   “放我出去,我是乌特雷将军的儿子,你们不能这么对我!”盖布里吵闹的声音从客房里传出来。

“Let me out, I am General Utrecht’s son, you can’t do this to me!” Gabriel’s raucous voice transmitted out from the guest room.

   守卫无动于衷,见拉威尔和卡恩走过来,立刻躬身行礼,将门打开。

The guard was indifferent to his shouts. When he saw Ravel and Kahn arriving, he immediately bowed and saluted, then opened the door.

   盖布里见拉威尔进来,神色激动地问:“阁下,您终于回来了。请告诉我,为什么要把我软禁起来?”

When Gabriel saw Ravel walk in, he was moved and asked, “Sire. you’re finally back. May I ask why are you putting me under house arrest?”

   拉威尔没有回答,只是示意卡恩将医院那段视频播放出来。

Ravel did not reply, he merely gestured for Kahn to play that video from the hospital.

   盖布里一见,脸色徒变,咬牙道:“我的举动,确实有欠妥当。但你们若知道凯奇以前如何对我,便可以理解我的所作所为了。”

When Gabriel saw that, his face changed and he gritted his teeth, “My actions are a little improper. But if you knew what Cage done to me before, then you would understand my actions.”

   “我不需要知道他以前如何对你。”拉威尔冷漠地说,“我只知道你趁凯奇重病在床之际,出言侮辱,出手伤人。谁给你的胆子,让你如此对待一位刚刚经历磨难的英雄?”

“I don’t need to know what he had done to you before.” Ravel coldly and detachedly spoke. “I only know that you have insulted and injured Cage while he’s down with serious injuries. Just who gave you such courage, to treat a hero who had just experienced such torment like that?”

   “英雄?”盖布里不屑道,“如果他安安分分地待在泰玛星,这一切都不会发生。没有他,你们也能取得胜利。他变成现在这样,都是他自找的。他凭什么被人当作英雄?”

“Hero?” Gabriel said with disdain. “If he were to obediently stay on Taima Planet, then all of this wouldn’t happen. Without him, you would still be able to prevail. Now that he’s in such a condition, it was all his own fault. Why must he be treated as a hero by others?”

   “凭什么?”拉威尔示意卡恩,“你告诉他。”

“Why?” Ravel gestured to Kahn, “You tell him.”

   卡恩冷冷望着盖布里,说道:“或许凯奇少爷的出现是一场意外,他的被捕也是一场意外,但他之后的种种表现,都足以称得上‘英雄’二字。他为自己的选择,付出了代价,为我们的事业,坚守了信念。如你所说,没有他,我们或许也能取得胜利,但他的出现,却为我们转移敌人的注意力,争取了反击的时间,减少了许多伤亡。”

Kahn coldly looked at Gabriel and started to explain, “Perhaps Young Master Cage’s appearance was a mishap and his arrest was also a mishap, but performance afterwards were all enough to be counted as a hero. For his own choice, he paid a price while for our cause, held our faith. Like you said, even without him, perhaps we can prevail. But with his appearance, it caused the enemy to shift their attention and give us the time to strike back, decreasing the casualties.

   他顿了顿,又道,“盖布里少爷,若换做是你,你能做得比他更好吗?”

He paused, then continued, “Young Master Gabriel, if it were you, would you perform even better than him?”

   “为什么不能?”盖布里挺起胸道,“我一直比他优秀,比他努力,比他更适合继承父亲的事业。”

“Why can’t I?” Gabriel struck out his chest, “I was always more outstanding than him, more hardworking than him, and more suitable than him to inherit father’s cause.”

   拉威尔眼中聚起一片寒霜,想到凯奇竟然被如此浅薄的人所凌辱,就觉得难以忍受。

A thin layer of frost rose in Ravel’s eyes. When he thought back to how Cage received insult from such a superficial man, he found it hard to endure.

   他冷冷道:“卡恩,交给你了,让他尝尝刑讯的滋味,看他是否真能如他所说,做得比凯奇更好。”

He coldly said, “Kahn, I’ll leave it to you. Have him taste tortube and see if he can really perform as well as he said. Even better than Cage.”

   说完,他转身走出了房间。

He directly turned and left the room after he said that.

   “等等,拉威尔阁下,我是乌特雷将军的继承人,你这么对待英雄的后代,不怕引起公愤吗?”

“Wait, Sire Ravel, I am General Utrecht’s heir. For you to treat the hero’s son like this, are you not afraid of public anger?”

   卡恩朝他露出怜悯之色。这家伙还不知道自己继承人的位置很快就要不保了。事实上自从乌特雷将军牺牲后,比克家族已经名存实亡。拉威尔保留的,是他们家族的名位和功勋。若凯奇去世,由谁继承比克的姓氏,完全取决于拉威尔的意思。

Kahn revealed a face of pity to him. This guy didn’t even know his own heir position wasn’t going to be ensured very soon. In fact, ever since General Utrecht sacrificed his life, his family’s name remains, but in reality, it was as good as dead. What Ravel retained was their family’s official rank and achievements. If Cage was to pass away, then who would inherit the family name would entirely depend on what Ravel wants.

   盖布里本来是最适合的人选,可惜他自己作死,连一时之气都忍不了。

Gabriel was originally the best choice, but it was a pity that had courted disaster for himself, not even being able to bear his anger for a bit longer.

   卡恩从侍卫手中取过一管针筒,对盖布里说道:“凯奇曾经被注射了十倍感知的敏感剂,我这次给你打个对折,只用五倍的剂量。”

Kahn got a needle from a royal guard and said to him, “Cage had once been injected with a tenfold sensitizer, I will give you mercy and give you half of that. So I will only use the dose for fivefolds.”

   盖布里望着卡恩手中的针筒,眼中闪过一丝恐惧……

Gabriel look at the needle in Kahn’s hand, a trace of fear flashed through his eyes.

   当晚,拉威尔别府的客房中,响起一阵阵凄厉的惨叫声,久久不绝。

That night, within Ravel’s guest room, strings of mournful screams sounded, continuing for a long time.

   第二天清晨,卡恩过来汇报情况。

On the morning next day, Kahn arrived to report the situation.

   “他只坚持了2个小时。”将视频打开,盖布里在受刑五六分钟后就开始求饶,眼泪鼻涕一起流,模样狼狈至极。这种反应并不奇怪,毕竟五倍的痛感,不是一般人可以忍受的。卡恩还没敢下重手,不然盖布里可能连一个小时也坚持不了。

“He only persevered for two hours.” He started up the video, showcasing how Gabriel started to beg for forgiveness at the six minute mark of torture, tears and mucus streaming down his face. He cutted a very sorry figure. This kind of reaction wasn’t strange, after all, five times the pain wasn’t something an average person could bear. Kahn had not even done it seriously, otherwise, Gabriel wouldn’t even last an hour.

   “凯奇到底是怎么做到的?”有盖布里做对比,卡恩对凯奇能够在十倍痛感的虐待中活下来,表示极度震惊。这已经不单单是身体的折磨,更是对意志的考验。

“Just how did Cage do it?” With Gabriel as a contrast, Kahn expressed extreme shock for Cage’s ability to survive ten times the torture. The was already not just torment of the body, it was a test of will.

   拉威尔压根对盖布里受虐的过程没有兴趣,转头对卡恩说:“今天我会在医院留宿。”

Ravel was entirely uninterested toward the torment Gabriel underwent. He turned his head to Kahn and told him “I will stay overnight at the hospital today.”

   卡恩一愣,忙道:“明天就是开国仪式啊。”

Kahn stared blankly for a moment, then quickly said, “Tomorrow is the ceremony for founding the country.”

   “我知道。”拉威尔淡淡道,“你提前将礼服送到医院,我到时候从医院出发,直接去典礼广场。”

“I know.” Ravel dulling said, “Bring the ceremonial robe to the hospital earlier, I will set off from the hospital when the time starts and directly go to the ceremony plaza.”

   “但您的安全……”

“But your safety…”

   “我相信你的办事能力。”拉威尔拍了拍卡恩的肩膀以示鼓励,然后走出书房,径直前往医院。

“I believe in your ability to handle things.” Ravel patted Kahn’s shoulder as encouragement, then left the study, going straight for the hospital.

   卡恩无语地望着他的背影:身为领袖,这么任性真的好吗?!

Kahn speechlessly looked at his leaving figure: As a leader, is being so willful really good?!

   拉威尔到医院时,尚可正努力抬起手臂,尝试捧起餐桌上的水果。

When Ravel arrived at the hospital, Shang Ke was working hard to raise his arm to grab a fruit on the dining table.

   拉威尔立刻用锐利的眼神扫向一旁的护士:“怎么不帮忙?”

Ravel immediately used a sharp gaze by the nurse at the side, “Why are you not helping?”

   护士忙道:“凯奇少爷想自己试试。”

Nurse hurried answered, “Young Master Cage wanted to try himself.”

   尚可对他点点头,表示是自己的意思。他的手指虽然还不能动,但手臂已经可以活动几下了。

Shang Ke nodded toward him, expressing that it was his idea. Although his fingers still could not move, his arm could already move about somewhat.

   成功捧起水果,他朝拉威尔露出一个愉快的笑容,然后将水果递到他面前。

Successfully grasping the fruit, he gave Ravel a cheerful smile then raised it in front of him.

   “送个我?”拉威尔问。

“For me?” Ravel asked.

   尚可点点头。

Shang Ke nodded his head.

   拉威尔接过水果,也不嫌弃,一口一口,认真地吃起来。

Ravel took the fruit and showed no discomfort as he readily ate it bite by bite very seriously.

   见尚可盯着自己,他顺手从果盘里拿起一块切好的水果递到尚可嘴边。

Noticing Shang Ke staring at him, he took a piece of fruit that was already cut up from the fruit place and passed it near Shang Ke’s mouth.

   尚可张嘴,咬下去。

Shang Ke opened his mouth and bit down.

   两人一边吃一边喂,气氛十分和谐。

Two people together, one person eating one person feeding, the atmosphere was very harmonious.

   吃完早餐,尚可见拉威尔似乎还没有要走的意思,不免有些奇怪。

After he finished his breakfast, he noticed that Ravel showed no indication of leaving and felt it was a bit strange.

   “今天留下来陪你。”他一边点开视播,一边开口道,“早餐后,看2小时节目,休息1小时,然后用午餐。午餐过后,我带你去逛花园,摘花,看蝴蝶,听音乐。2小时后,在亭子喝茶吃点心,然后回病房休息。晚餐后,换药,身体护理,例行检查。”

“I will stay today to accompany you.” While he turned on the broadcast, he continued, “After breakfast, let’s watch two hours of programs, rest for an hour, then eat lunch. After lunch, I’ll take you out for a walk around the garden, view the flowers, view the butterflies and listen to music. Two hours later, we’ll stop for some tea and pastries, then come back to the room to rest. After dinner, we’ll change your medicine, nurse your body and undergo inspection.”

   拉威尔像处理公务一样,一板一眼地安排好今天的日程,听得尚可一愣一愣的。

Like he was handling official business, Ravel arranged the entire schedule of the day. Shang Ke became more and more dumbfounded as he listened.

   “如果有什么意见,随时可以用肢体语言提醒我。”拉威尔认真地望着尚可,似乎在等待他的回应。

“If you have any objections, you can use your body language to get my attention at any time.” Ravel seriously looked toward Shang Ke, waiting for his response.

   尚可忍不住笑起来,觉得这个男人有时候还挺可爱的。

Shang Ke couldn’t help but smile, sometimes, this man really was pretty cute.

   拉威尔目不转睛地盯着他,冰蓝色的眼瞳中,盛满了他的笑容。

Ravel steadily stared at him, within his icy blue eyes was only his smile.

   尚可对他点点头,表示同意他的安排。

Shang Ke nodded at him, expressing his agreement to his plans.

   拉威尔这才移开视线,转头帮尚可调换频道,然后在他的示意下选了一个娱乐节目,和他一起观看起来。

Only then did Ravel move away his line of sight to help Shang Ke change the channel. After he chose an entertainment program under Shang Ke’s hinting, they started to watch it together.

   节目很搞笑,至少好几次都把尚可逗乐了,但拉威尔自始至终一个表情,嘴角都没动一下。

The program was very funny, causing Shang Ke to start laughing several times. But Ravel’s expression was the same from beginning to end, even his lips didn’t move a hint.

   尚可真怀疑他的面目神经是不是有缺陷。

Shang Ke was really suspicious if his facial nerves had problems.

   “怎么了?”拉威尔察觉尚可的视线,回头问道。

“What’s wrong?” Ravel sensed Shang Ke’s line of sight and turned back to ask him.

   尚可摇头,表示没事。

Shang Ke shook his head, expressing that nothing was wrong.

   拉威尔看看时间,说道:“你该休息了。”

Ravel took a look at the time then told him, “You should rest now.”

   说着,他起身扶尚可躺下,见他炯炯有神地睁着眼,便伸手盖住他的眼睛:“睡吧。1个小时后叫你。”

Right with that said, he got up to help Shang Ke lie down. Seeing his bright eyes full of spirit, he covered them with his hand, “Sleep. I will wake you up an hour later.”

   尚可:他完全不想睡啊!

Shang Ke: He has zero interest in sleeping!

   躺在床上,内心活动了1个小时,然后起来和拉威尔吃午餐,午餐后是放风时间。拉威尔在音乐声中,亲自给他……摘花。不知道是不是因为罗伊昨天送了他一捧花,所以拉威尔觉得他很喜欢花……

While lying on the best, his mind exercised for an hour, then got up and ate lunch with Ravel. After lunch was time for fresh air. With the music playing, Ravel personally…picked flowers for him. He didn’t know if it was because Roy gave him a bouquet of flowers yesterday so Ravel thought he really liked flowers…

   总之这一天,拉威尔真的按部就班地完成了他制定的日程表。晚上,他居然还打算留在医院过夜。

Anyway, this day, Ravel really completed the daily scheduled as he had told him. That night, he had even planned to spend the night at the hospital.

   作为新帝国领袖,他是不是有点太闲了?!

At the new empire’s leader, wasn’t he a bit too free?!

   不过晚上有人“陪睡”,感觉还是挺不错的。眼看离开的时间就要到了,他在这个世界过一天少一天。虽然时间很短,但是能够认识拉威尔这个朋友,也算没有白来这一遭。

However, with someone “accompanying him to sleep” still felt pretty nice. The time for his departure was coming soon. A day in this world is one day less, although the time was very short, for him to be able to know such a friend like Ravel, he didn’t come in vain.

   尚可望着躺在另一张床上的拉威尔,默默道了一声:晚安,我的朋友。

Shang Ke looked toward the other bed where Ravel lied and silently said to him: Good night, my friend.

   第二天早晨,尚可一睁开眼就看到身穿华服、头戴皇冠的拉威尔,瞬间生出一种置身舞会现场的感觉。

The next morning, the morning Shang Ke opened his eyes, he saw a beautifully dressed and crowned Ravel. The feeling this scene gave him at the moment was like a ball party.

   他开口道:“今天是举行开国仪式的日子,我们十几年的努力,终于要迎来新的纪元了。凯奇,这是属于我们所有人的荣誉,请你拭目以待。”

He said to him, “Today is the day we hold the ceremony for the founding of the new empire. We have worked hard for over ten years, and finally obtained a new era. Cage, this is all of our honor, I ask for you to wait and see.”

   拉威尔神色庄重,气势逼人,有如天生的王者。

Ravel’s expression was grave, his aura pressuring, like he was born to be King.

   尚可看得心跳有些加速,眼中不自觉地浮现出一抹异彩,如初升的朝阳,激沸了拉威尔的血液。

Shang Ke’s heart sped up a bit at the sight, a splender appeared in his eyes unknowingly, like the rising morning sun, causing Ravel’s blood to boil.
