Chapter 7: I Only Need 72 Hours To Fall In Love With You (VII)


尚可靠在枕头上,盯着面前的全息屏幕,上面正在播放开国仪式。

Shang Ke leaned against the pillow, staring at the holographic screen before him. What was being broadcast was the founding of the state ceremony.

广场上,人山人海,热闹非凡。拉威尔坐在一辆缓缓行驶的梭车上,两旁守卫环伺,列队护航。空中礼炮齐鸣,彩花绽放,场面空前盛大。

At the plaza, there was a vast crowd bustling lively. Ravel sat on in a shuttle car that was slowly traveling on the planned route. On both sides were guards in a naval escort formation. Gun salutes were fire into the sky, bursting into colorful flowers, the scene was unprecedentedly majestic.

尚可觉得男人做到拉威尔这个地步,这辈子也值了。帝国之王,万民之首,真正的世界第一人。

Shang Ke felt that if a man were to be as accomplished as Ravel, then their life would have been worth it. The King of a new empire, with all the people below him, a person who is truly number one in the world.

“拉威尔阁下,不,现在应该称呼为‘陛下’了,陛下真是太帅了!”护士姐姐满眼星星地赞道。

“Sire Ravel, no, he should be called ‘His Majesty’ now. His Majesty is really too cool!” The big sister nurse praised with stars in her eyes.

尚可点头表示同意,勉强有他三分二帅了。

Shang Ke nodded his head to express his agreement. He will reluctantly admit he is two-thirds cool.

拉威尔登上高台,开始慷慨陈词。他神态庄重,目光如注,军人的严谨和贵族的高雅在他身上融合成一股独特的魅力,令人心生敬畏。

Ravel ascended onto the tall platform and started giving his speech. His appearance was grave, his eyes firm. The strictness of a soldier and elegance of a noble mixed and gave him a unique charm, causing reverence to born in people’s hearts.

当他大声宣布结束克鲁斯的统治,建立新辰帝国时,所有人都欢呼起来,他们哭着,笑着,相互拥抱着,情难自已。

When he loudly declared the termination of Cruise’s regime and established their new empire, everyone started to cheer. They cried, laughed, and hugged each other, feeling all sorts of complicated emotions.

尚可并非这个世界的人,没有经历过克鲁斯统治时期的黑暗和残暴,但如今见到他们真心流露的欣喜,也不由得为之感动。

Shang Ke wasn’t really this world’s person and he hadn’t experienced Cruise’s regime of darkness and brutality. But now that he saw their sincerely happy expressions, he was also a bit moved.

其实,做英雄的感觉蛮不错的,虽然他只能算一个“伪”英雄,但他遭受的折磨却是真实的,好歹没有功劳也有苦劳,尚可觉得自己也可以“普天同庆”一下。

In fact, the feeling of being hero is pretty good. Although he can only be regarded as a “false” hero, he truly did suffer torture, so good or bad, even if he doesn’t have any contribution, he had worked hard. Shang Ke felt that he could also “rejoice and celebrate with everyone” for a moment.

这时,拉威尔突然抬起头,眼神灼灼,似乎正透过屏幕看向什么地方。

At this moment, Ravel suddenly raised his head, his eyes burning. It was like he could see through the screen to somewhere.

“啊!”护士姐姐发出一声低低的尖叫,对尚可激动道,“凯奇少爷,陛下一定是在看你!”

“Ah!” Big sister nurse gave a low scream, especially moved as she said to him, “Young Master Cage, His Majesty must be looking at you!”

别开玩笑了好吗?他明明是在用眼神征服世界。

Can you not joke around? He is obviously using his gaze to conquer the world.

护士姐姐见他一脸波澜不惊,突然又变得紧张起来,走到他身边,仔细检查仪器数据,同时问道:“凯奇少爷,你感觉怎么样,有没有哪里不舒服?”

When the big sister nurse saw his face having no reaction, she suddenly became nervous again and walked to his side, carefully inspecting the data of on the instrument, asking at the same time, “Young Master Cage, how do you feel? Is there any place you don’t feel well?”

尚可疑惑地看向护士,不明白她在紧张什么。人不是好好的吗?要是有问题他早就“美”起来了。(神奇的完美表情包,让你越虐越美哦~~)

Shang Ke looked at her with confusion, he didn’t understand what she was being nervous about. Wasn’t he just fine? If he had a problem, he would had long “beautified”. (The magical Perfect Expression Pack, will let you become more and more beautiful~~)

TL Note: Beautified is a pun, the pinyin is the same as being gone, so he’s joking about dying.

护士见他毫无异状,松了口气,说道:“陛下临走之前特别提醒我,要时刻留意你的身体状况,担心你观看仪式时会发生什么意外。”

When the nurse saw that there wasn’t anything wrong, she release a breath and told him, “His Majesty specifically reminded me to be mindful of your conditional at all time. He’s worried that something unexpected would happen while you watch the ceremony.”

能发生什么意外?拉威尔以为自己会激动死吗?放心吧,他还有三天好活呢。

Just what unexpected thing would happen? Was Ravel afraid he would die from being overly excited? Don’t worry, he still has another three days to live.

仪式进行了3个小时,拉威尔离开后,广场的民众依然没有散去。

The ceremony lasted three hours. Even when Ravel left, the population at the plaza did not scatter.

尚可正准备换台,拉威尔的电话打过来了。他看看时间,那家伙现在应该很忙才对,居然还不忘给他打电话,真是体贴好基友。

Shang Ke was just about to change channels when Ravel’s phone call came through. He took a look at the time, that guy should be quite busy at this time, yet he still didn’t forget to make him a call. He really is such a considerate friend.

TL Note: this friend is specifically meant for friends of the same sex, it’s sometimes also called gay partner.

“看了仪式吗?”拉威尔问。

“Have you seen the ceremony?” Ravel asked.

尚可点头。

Shang Ke nodded.

“开心吗?”

“Are you happy?”

必须的。尚可继续点头。

Of course. Shang Ke continued to nod.

“下午还有宴会,本来想带你出席,但是我担心你的身体。”拉威尔通过视频仔仔细细打量尚可,确认他真的没事才放心。

“There’s also a banquet in the afternoon. I was going to bring you there to attend it, but I’m worried about your body.” Ravel carefully inspected Shang Ke through the video and confirmed he was really fine then felt relieved.

尚可其实很想去宴会见见世面,这是妥妥的国宴啊。好不容易有个国君基友,以后恐怕没这个机会了。

Shang Ke actually really wanted to go to the banquet too see the world. This is the country’s banquet! He was finally close friends with a monarch, he likely won’t have such an opportunity again.

拉威尔望着他闪亮的眼睛,身上冷肃的气息不由得淡化了许多。

Ravel looked at his shining eyes, the cold aura on his body weakened.

“陛下,诸位大人正在等您。”那边传来卡恩的声音。

“Your Majesty, everyone is waiting for you.” Kahn’s voice came over from his side.

拉威尔敛了敛神,对尚可道:“好好休息,等我回来。”

Ravel returned to his senses and said to Shang Ke, “Rest well and wait for me to return.”

通话结束,护士姐姐帮尚可盖好被子,揶揄笑道:“陛下说了,要你好好休息,你可不能违抗君令哦。”

The call was ended while the big sister nurse helped Shang Ke fix his blanket and teased him with a smile, “His Majesty said it, you need to rest well You can’t disobey his order.”

尚可撇撇嘴:别以为我不知道,你是他安插在我身边的眼线、奸细、间谍!

Shang Ke curled his lips: Don’t think I don’t know, you are the informer he placed by my side, a crafty person, a spy!

TL Note: That’s also a pun, crafty person also means spy. So he’s repeated himself using different terms…

默默吐槽了一会,尚可还是闭上眼睛,乖乖睡觉。毕竟谁能指望一个半瘫痪的人到处乱蹦呢?

After he roasted her a little in silence, Shang Ke closed his eyes, obediently going to bed. After all, who care hope for a half paralyzed man to jump around?

晚上,拉威尔推掉其他杂七杂八的应酬,衣服也没换,径直赶回医院。

At night, Ravel pushed aside all other social niceties and directly returned to the hospital without even changing out of his clothes.

走到病房门口,他放缓脚步,轻轻推开房门。看到沉睡的尚可,他的瞳孔微微收缩。

When he walked to the door of the room, he slowed his steps and lightly pushed open the door. When he saw the fast asleep Shang Ke, his pupils slightly contracted.

走到病床边,拉威尔认真盯着仪器显示看了一会,然后才缓缓坐下,握住尚可的手,感受他的体温,整个人都放松下来。

He walked to the hospital bed and serious stared at what was shown on the instrument. He then slowly sat down, holding onto Shang Ke’s hand and feeling his temperature. Only then did he finally relax.

谢谢你,还活着。

Thank you, for still living.

第二天清晨,尚可迷迷糊糊听到门外传来人声,拉威尔似乎正在和谁说话,语气冷厉。

The next morning, Shang Ke heard a voice through the door in his muddled consciousness. Ravel seem to be speaking to someone, his tone very cold.

“尽快给我查出消息来源!”拉威尔眼中闪过一抹杀气,“这不仅是在质疑我的权威,也是对凯奇的侮辱。”

“Quickly find out where the news come from!” A trace of killing intent flashed through Ravel’s eyes, “It is not only calling my authority into question, it is also an insult toward Cage.”

卡恩皱眉道:“这些图片和视频我都找人仔细鉴别过,确实没有作假,但是……”

Kahn frowned, “I’ve already found people to carefully checked the imagines and video, they really aren’t counterfeit, but…”

“我只相信我所见到的凯奇,无论这些东西是真是假,都不会影响我对他的判断。”拉威尔眼神犀利地盯着卡恩。

“I only believe in the Cage I see, no matter whether these are true or false, it will all not influence my judgement of him.” Ravel sharply stared at Kahn.

“属下明白了。”卡恩神色一凛,躬身退下。

“This subordinate understands.” Kahn’s expression also cooled and left with a bow.

走回病房,床上的男孩不知道什么时候已经醒来,正直直地盯着他看。

When he walked back into the room, he didn’t know the boy had woke up, but he was sitting upright and staring at him.

“你听到了?”拉威尔走到他身边坐下。

“You heard it?” Ravel walked to his and sat down.

尚可点点头,用眼神询问:发生什么事了?

Shang Ke nodded, using his eyes to ask: What happened?

拉威尔沉默了片刻,伸手点开虚拟屏幕,切换到一个网页界面。

Ravel remained silent for a moment, then reached out to open a virtual screen

上面发布了大量图片和视频,配以各种声情并茂的文字说明,所有内容都与一个人有关,正是他这具身体的原主人——凯奇。

On it were a large amount of images and videos with all kinds of excellent writing to explain them. All of the content had something to do with him, to be precise, it has something to do with the original master of the body–Cage.

不得不说,凯奇少爷的生活真是多姿多彩,混过黑道,打过群架,追过美女,飙过神曲,欺过弱小……居住在贫瘠的泰玛星,无法大肆挥霍,也只能玩一玩这些不入流的游戏了。

He had no choice but to say, this Young Master Cage’s life was really full diverse. He had mixed among the dark crowds before, done gang fights, chased after beauties, made a fool of himself, bully the small and weak…When he resided in Taima Planet, he was unable to do as he pleased so he could only play some games that were frowned upon.

在尚可看来,凯奇就是一个缺爱的中二少年,本来也没什么大不了的,但他现在偏偏成为了全民公认的英雄。作为一位公众人物,任何小错都会被无限放大。更何况凯奇的人品确实不怎么样,以前得罪过不少人。这些过去被公开后,立刻引来大片声讨和谴责,很多人都觉得自己被骗了。

From Shang Ke’s view, Cage was a chuuni youngster that lacked love. It wasn’t anything big, but then he just had to become a publically known hero. As a public figure, any small mistake would be enlarged without bound. Furthermore, Cage’s character really isn’t that good, he had offended many people before. After his past was all expod to the public, it immediately drew widespread condenment and criticizing. A lot of people felt that they had been lied to.

【擦,凯奇居然是这种人?太破灭了!】

【Fck, Cage was such a person? Reality is too different!】

【亏我还把他当偶像,现在应该叫他“呕像”了。】

【And I had even made him my idol. Should call him “i-dol” now. (He used the same pinyin sound, but this one means “like vomit”】

【这种人也配称为“英雄”?简直就是英雄之耻。】

【Even this kind of person can be called a “hero”? He’s simply the shame of heroes.】

【上面说话未免太难听了,凯奇如今重伤在床,命不久矣,你们就不能留点口德吗?】

【All the words above are too vulgar. Cage nowadays is serious injured in bed, his life isn’t long. Can’t you guys leave some things unsaid?】

【命不久矣?记得十天前医生就说他活不过两天,但他现在不是还活得好好的?】

【His life isn’t long? Remember, the doctor said ten days ago that he won’t live past two days. But isn’t he still alive and well now?】

【我看过凯奇的诊断报告,那种伤势,一般人确实挺不过两天。】

【I seen Cage’s diagnose report, those kinds of injuries, the average person really won’t live past two days.】

【呵呵,你们不觉得这件事很值得怀疑吗?凯奇很可能只是在博取同情,想借此抹杀他过去的污点。事实上他的伤势或许根本没有对外公布的那么严重。】

【Hehe, you guys don’t think this is quite suspicious? Cage might just be trying to win sympathizers and use that as a reason to erase his past stains. In fact, his injuries might not be as serious as it was reported.】

【kao,若真是如此,凯奇一生黑不解释!】

【Damn, if that was true, why don’t they explain Cage’s black history!】

【同上。】

【What he said.】

……

拉威尔一直在观察凯奇的表情,担心他因为情绪激动而病发,没想到他不但没有动怒,反而表现十分淡然。

Ravel was observing Cage’s expression the entire time, worried that his mood might plummet and his injuries would act up again. But he didn’t expect that not only did he not get angry, he was very tranquil and calm.

没错,这就是他认识的“凯奇”。面对敌人的折磨,不屈不饶;面对世人的指责,不卑不亢。人的外表可以骗人,但眼睛不会。凯奇的眼中,没有一丝阴郁,只有满满的阳光。

That’s right, this is the “Cage” he knows. When he faced the enemy’s torment, he did not yield or beg for mercy. Wen he faced the people’s criticize, he was neither obsequious nor supercilious. A person’s outer appearance can lie to others, but the eyes cannot. Cage’s eyes did not hold any darkness, they were only full of light.

网上这些言论连拉威尔看了都觉得不堪忍受,这个男孩却可以做到荣辱不惊。光是这份心性,就足以让他全力维护。

Even Ravel felt all of these remarks online were unbearable, yet this boy remained completely calm. Just this temperament, was enough for him to completely defend him.

语言有时候比利刃更可怕,随便几句不负责任的话就能将人伤得体无完肤。正因如此,拉威尔对那些造谣生事的人更是厌恶到极点。

Words sometimes were even more frightening than a blade. Just by saying a few irresponsible things can hurt people completely. Because of that, Ravel started to hate those who started rumors and created trouble to the extreme.

“别担心,这件事交给我处理,我绝不会让你受委屈的。”拉威尔向他保证道。

“Don’t worry, leave this matter to me. I will not allow you to be aggrieved.” Ravel pledged to him.

没关系,他一点都不在意。

It’s all right, he didn’t mind it at all.

尚可正准备对拉威尔露出一个安抚的笑容,脑中忽然传来系统的声音:【附加任务:两天后拉威尔将遭遇狙击,请宿主务必保护他的安全。】

Shang Ke was just about to give him a comforting smile, when the System’s voice sudden came in his mind: 【Additional Mission: Two days later, Ravel will encounter sniping. Requesting Host to protect him at all cost.】

他一个残疾人士,怎么保护他啊?

A disabled person like him, how was he supposed to protect him?

【经过检测,宿主现在的身体虽然肌肉萎缩、病毒侵体、内脏坏死,但骨骼基本愈合,至少拥有3秒暴起时间。请合理利用这宝贵的3秒时间,英勇地挑战死亡吧。】

【Through detecting, with Host’s current body of atrophied muscles, poisoned state, internal organs are necrosis, and bones are just healing, you have at least three seconds of time to stand. Please rationally use these valuable three seconds to heroically change death.】

系统,老实说吧,拉威尔是不是你儿子?这么玩命的保护他,玩的却是他的命!

System, be honest, is Ravel your son? Playing around with life to protect him, but the life being played is his!

【若完成这个任务而不死,系统将再次赠送15天滞留时间。】

【If this mission is completed and Host does not die, System will present you another 15 days of detained time.】

尚可:呵呵,谢谢,不用了!

Shang Ke: Hehe, thank you, there’s no need!

不过一两个小时,网上这些消息的来源就查到了。虽然还没有抓到人,但对方与盖布里关系密切,只要审问一下盖布里就能找到线索。

However, in one to two hours, the source of these news had been found. Although they have not caught the person, that person has a close relationship with Gabriel. As long as they interrogated Gabriel a little, they would find the trail.

盖布里受刑之后,至今都没有恢复过来,整个人如惊弓之鸟,问什么答什么,乖得不能再乖。

After Gabriel was tortured, he hadn’t managed to recovered yet. His entire person was like a bird startled by the mere twang of a bow, whatever one asked, he answered. He was so obedient he couldn’t be anymore obedient.

网上公布的这些资料,巨细无遗地曝光了凯奇从14岁到21岁的黑历史,显然盖布里早有预谋。

The information that was announced online completely exposed Cage’s black history from age fourteen to twenty–one. It was clear Gabriel had long planned this.

如果凯奇没有提前回到龙亚星,等义军取得胜利,稳定局势,再将他们接回来,盖布里就能利用这些资料制造舆论,借机争夺比克家族的继承权,其心机可见一斑。

If Cage didn’t return to Dragon Fang Planet earlier and waited until the rebellion prevailed, the situation steadied, and then returned, Gabriel would had been able to exploit these information to control public opinion. He could then use the opportunity to fight and obtain the family right of inheritance. His thinking was easily seen through.

拉威尔原本并没打算处死盖布里,但他不该一再碰触他的逆鳞!

Ravel originally did not plan to execute Gabriel, but the other shouldn’t have repeatedly touched his scales! (go against him)

“陛下,网上的资料已经全部处理干净,但是……”卡恩迟疑道,“舆论对凯奇十分不利,他们希望官方能给出一个解释,并要求凯奇出面说明。”

“Your Majesty, all the information online has been wiped clean. But…” Kahn hesitated, “Public opinion is very unfavorable toward Cage right now, they wish for the government to give them an explanation, and for Cage to personally appear and explain.”

“出面说明?他们真的以为凯奇的病情是捏造的吗?”班尼医生怒不可遏。

“Personally appear and explain? Do they really think Cage’s state is made up?” Doctor Banny could no longer restrain his anger.

拉威尔眼中也带着压抑的怒火。

Ravel’s eyes also contained his repressed rage.

“陛下,”班尼望着拉威尔,语气哀伤道,“凯奇他,他是真的快不行了。”

“Your Majesty.” Banny looked at Ravel, his tone full of grief, “Cage he, he really is about to die.”

拉威尔垂下眼,双拳紧握。

Ravel hung his eyes, his fist tightly closed.

“我希望凯奇能走得安心一点,请不要让他在死前还背负骂名。”班尼低叹一声,转身而去。

“I wished that Cage can go a bit peacefully, so don’t let him die while still bearing his smeared name.” Banny gave a deep sigh, turned and left.

真正与凯奇相处过的人才知道,这是一个温柔而坚强的孩子,无论过去怎样,如今的他,都值得所有人尊敬和爱护。

The people who have genuinely interacted with him knew that he was truly a gentle and strong child. Regardless of the past, the current him was worthy of everyone’s respect and adoration.
