Chapter 8: I Only Need 72 Hours To Fall In Love With You (VIII)


网上的争论越来越激烈,要求凯奇出面的呼声也越来越高。

The arguing online became more and more intense, the number of requests for Cage to personally appear also became more and more.

拉威尔屏蔽了这些信息,不想让凯奇烦心。

Ravel blocked these information as to not trouble Cage.

“明天要在墓园举办英雄追悼会,我到时会亲自为你正名。”

“We are going to conduct a hero memorial service at the cemetery tomorrow. I will personally clear your name.”

明天?明天不就是拉威尔被狙击的日子吗?

Tomorrow? Isn’t tomorrow the day Ravel was going to be sniped?

兄弟,想活命就把我带上!尚可将手搭在拉威尔的手臂上,一脸期盼地望着他。

Brother, if you want to live, take me along! Shang Ke placed his hand on Ravel’s arm, his eyes full of expectation as he looked at him.

“你想去?”拉威尔盯着他闪亮的眼睛。

“You want to go?” Ravel stared at his shining eyes.

尚可很认真地点头。

Shang Ke very seriously nodded his head.

“不行,追悼会上人多混杂,我担心你发生意外。”然后拉威尔就看到他的眼睛更亮了,如碧波荡漾,粼光流转。

“You can’t. There are a lot of people at the memorial service, I’m afraid something unexpected will happen.” The moment Ravel finished saying that, he saw Cage’s eyes becoming even bright, like rippling green jade, the light within roamed.

会发生意外的是你!兄弟,不带上我,你会后悔的!

The one that will have an unexpected situation is you! Brother, if you don’t bring me along, you’ll regret it!

尚可继续用他的星星眼望着拉威尔。

Shang Ke continued to use his starry eyes to look at Ravel.

拉威尔与他对视两分钟,不敌:“好吧,我让卡恩加强保卫。”

Ravel faced him for two minutes and lost, “Alright, I’ll have Kahn strengthen the defense.”

尚可立刻眉开眼笑,铂金色的头发微微翘起,仿佛每一根发丝都带着笑意,充满了阳光的色彩。

Shang Ke immediately beamed with joy, his platinum golden hair was slightly sticking up as if every strand carried his delight, full of sunshine.

拉威尔忍不住揉了揉,暖洋洋的,手感真好,再揉几下……

Ravel couldn’t endure it and rubbed his head. So comfortably warm, the feeling is really good, so he rubbed a few more times…

拉威尔之所以同意让凯奇参加,一是回应公众的质疑;二是因为墓园追悼会场面肃穆,人数虽多,但秩序井然;三是因为悼念的逝者中,最重要的一位正是凯奇的父亲乌特雷将军。

The reason why Ravel agreed to allow Shang Ke to participate was one, to respond to the public’s questions; two because the memorial service at the cemetery would be solemn and respectful, although there are a lot of people, things would be in perfect order; three was because among the departed, the most important one was Cage’s father, General Utrecht.

拉威尔走出病房,不过四五分钟又返回来,然后一把抱起尚可。

Ravel walked out of the room, but returned in four to five minutes, picking Shang Ke up.

咦?去哪?

Eh? Where are we going?

“我问过班尼医生,他说你可以洗个澡。”拉威尔抱着尚可一边朝浴室走,一边解释道,“只要动作轻柔一点,别蹭破伤口就没事。”

“I asked Doctor Banny, he said you can take a bath.” Ravel carried Shang Ke to the bathroom by the side and explained, “As long as you take one carefully and don’t break open any wounds, it’s alright.”

尚可身上的绷带已经拆了,骨头在仪器的治疗下,愈合得不错,但是因为肌肉萎缩,手脚依然不灵便。

The bandages on Shang Ke’s body were already taken off. Under treatment, his bones healed pretty well, but because of the atrophied muscles, his hands and feet were still unable to work.

拉威尔将尚可轻轻放在一张暖玉躺椅上,然后帮他脱下衣服。

Ravel gently placed him down on a warm jade recliner, then helped him take off his clothes.

这段时间,拉威尔经常贴身照顾,尚可对于在他面前赤身裸体已经能够保持淡定。虽然这是他第一次帮他洗澡,但自己身上还有哪个部位是他没看过的?

In this timeframe, Ravel had frequently personally taken care of him. Shang Ke had already been naked in front of him so many time so he was able to keep calm. Although this was the first time he was helping him bathe, but what part of him had he not already seen?

拉威尔看着他瘦骨嶙峋的身体,肤色惨白,布满大大小小各种伤痕,脆弱得好像只要轻轻一碰就会破碎,唯有胸口那朵苍穹赤炎依然艳丽如血。

Ravel looked at his emaciated body and his death pale skin that was covered in all sorts of injuries. He was so weak it was like a light touch could smash him into pieces. Only that Flaming Red Sky Flower on his chest was still gorgeous like blood.

这个男孩每天笑脸迎人,精神奕奕,但谁又能想到他衣服下是这样一具残破的身躯?

This boy greeted people everyday with a smile in great spirits. But who would had thought that under his clothes was this kind of broken body?

外界质疑他的病情,只因他们不曾见过他真实的样子。

The outside world called in question his condition, it was only because they hadn’t seen his true appearance.

拉威尔调好水温,开始细心地帮尚可洗头擦身。

Ravel adjusted the water temperature and stared to carefully wash Shang Ke’s hair and body.

手指缓缓划过他的肌肤,拉威尔的眼神逐渐变得暗沉。

His fingers slowly streaked pass his skin, Ravel’s eyes gradually became darker.

他想拥有这个人,他的眼睛,他的嘴唇,他的纹身,他的伤痕……所有一切,他都想要。

He wanted this man, his eyes, his lips, his tattoo, his injuries…everything, he wanted it all.

第一次生出如此强烈的感觉,仿佛烈焰一般,几乎要将眼前的男孩烧成灰烬。但是,他什么都不能做,甚至不敢稍有逾矩之举,害怕自己一不小心就伤到了他。

This was the first time such an intense feeling arose in him, like raging flames, almost wanting to burn this boy into ashes. However, he cannot do anything. He didn’t even dare to do anything more, afraid that he would injure him if he became careless.

尚可似有所觉,转头朝拉威尔望去。

Shang Ke seemed to be aware and he turned to look at Ravel.

拉威尔收敛视线,深深藏起了自己的心思。

Ravel moved his line of sight, deeply hiding it into his mind.

清洗完毕,拉威尔用浴巾将尚可包好,然后像抱一条大虫子般将他抱回病床,给他换上新的病服。

After he finished washing him, Ravel took a bath towel to carefully wrap him up, then like he was picking up a large worm, he place him back onto the hospital bed and helped him into clothes.

“好好休息,明天追悼会九点开始,八点起来准备。”

“Take a good rest. The memorial service will start at nine tomorrow. Preparations will start at eight.”

第二天清晨,拉威尔身穿黑色礼服,庄严肃穆,尽管神色冷峻,但依然帅得惨绝人寰。

On the next day, Ravel wore a black ceremonial robe, dignified and solemn. Despite his grave expression, he was still handsome to the extreme.

拉威尔亲自帮尚可换上礼服,礼服款式与他身上的那套一模一样。

Ravel personally helped Shang Ke put on his ceremonial robe, the pattern on his was the same as his.

穿上礼服的尚可,瞬间从一只懒懒的家猫变成了一只高雅的豹子。

The moment Shang Ke had the ceremonial robe on, he turned from a lazy house cat into a dainty leopard.

作为他的主治医生,班尼一直觉得这个男孩很神奇,身体明明已经破败不堪,却还能爆发出如此强大的生命力。看他精神奕奕的模样,谁会相信他其实是一个将死之人?

As his personal doctor, Danny always felt this boy was very magical. His body was obviously utterly broken, yet he was still able to burst out such great vitality. Look at his lively appearance, just who would believe that this was actually a checkmated man?

班尼又看了看正帮凯奇系领扣的拉威尔,暗想这个男孩若是能活下来,必然会是新辰帝国未来的王后。以拉威尔对他的重视程度,即使同为男子,他也会毫不犹豫地将他绑在身边。

Banny then looked at Ravel who was helping Shang Ke button up his collar. He thought to himself that if this boy could survive, then he will inevitably become the new Chen Empire’s Queen. With how much importance Ravel attached to him, even if they were both men, he would also keep him by his side without hesitation.

可惜……

But it was a pity…

一行人登上梭车,在护卫队的簇拥下,浩浩荡荡地前往墓园。

A party of people climbed onto the shuttle car with a squad of guards surrounding it, majestically leaving for the cemetery.

此次追悼仪式,首都二分之一的将官都到场了,另外一些媒体记者和平民代表。

This time’s mourning ceremony, half of the capital’s generals had shown up along with some media reporters and normal citizens.

当拉威尔推着尚可出现时,记者们立刻拿出摄像仪,进行全程记录。他们并没有喧闹,而是站在护卫圈之外,安静地拍摄。等仪式结束后,还有一场记者见面会,所以他们并不着急。

When Ravel appeared pushing Shang Ke, the reporters quickly took out their cameras, recording the entire event. They did not make a ruckus, but stayed outside the guard circle, quickly filming. After the ceremony ends, there is also a reporter meeting so they were not anxious at all.

大部分人的视线都集中在尚可身上,见他目光明澈,精神饱满,心中对他的质疑不由得加重了。

The majority of the people’s gazes were on Shang Ke. When they saw his clear eyes and lively vigor, the suspicion in their hearts became clearer.

仪式开始先由拉威尔陈辞,然后由皇家司仪主持。寂静的墓园中,上千人庄严肃立,专注地聆听着司仪用低沉而恭谨的语调,缓慢地念诵着追悼辞和所有死难者的名字。

The ceremony started with Ravel giving a speech, then following that was the royal family’s Master of Ceremonies taking changed. Within the quiet cemetery, thousands of solemn people stood, concentrated on listening to the Master of Ceremonies using a low and respectful tone, slowly reading out the memorial list and all the casualties’ names.

网上无数民众都在观看仪式直播。

Online, countless people watched the ceremony being live broadcasted.

仪式上所有人都站着,唯有尚可一人坐着,显得格外醒目。不少人开始在网上冷嘲热讽,说他一身光鲜,稳坐轮椅,真是好命。看他的样子,完全不像一名“重症患者”。明明四肢健全,拄个拐杖总能站几分钟吧!

The people in the ceremony all stood, only Shang Ke remained seat, becoming especially eye catching. Countless people online started to mock and ridicule him, saying how bright and neat he looked, yet remained in his wheelchair. He really was lucky. Looking at his appearance, he completely did not look like a “grave patient”. His four limbs were obviously sound, he should be able to stand on crutches for a few minutes!

刑讯时那么硬气,怎么这会又娇气起来了?

He was so strong-willed under torture, so why is he suddenly delicate again?

司仪结束悼词,众人开始依次献花。

The Master of Ceremonies ended his memorial speech, and everyone started to offer flowers.

尚可感觉自己的气息越来越微弱,但还是强打精神留意周围的情况。距离他脱离这个世界,大约只剩下几个小时。狙击拉威尔的人,随时都有可能出现。

Shang Ke felt his breathing becoming weaker and weaker, but still kept his spirits up to be mindful of the surrounding situation. The time he had before he left this world was roughly a few hours left. The person that was sniping Ravel could appear at any moment.

“凯奇,随我一起去鲜花吧?”拉威尔低声对尚可说道。

“Cage, come with me to offer flowers alright?” Ravel said in a soft voice by his ear.

尚可点点头,由拉威尔推着朝英雄墓碑走去。

Shang Ke nodded his head and had Ravel push him to the hero gravestone.

其他人分立两侧,向他们行注目礼。

The other people were separated into two rows, saluting to them.

来到碑前,拉威尔正准备去扶尚可,却见他已经撑着扶手,费力地站起来了。拉威尔伸出手臂,让尚可借力站稳,两人一起将花枝放在墓碑上。

When they came in front of the monument, Ravel was just about to go support Ravel when he saw him already supporting himself on the handrail, using great effort to stand up. Ravel extended his hand to help him stand firmly, then the two placed the flowers on the gravestone.

这一幕,被摄像仪重视的记录下来,在日后成为了极具纪念价值的画面。

This scene was recorded carefully on tape, one day becoming an extremely valuable remembrance scene.

鲜花完毕,拉威尔拖着尚可走下台阶。正在这时,尚可突然看到人群中有一道亮光闪过,随即便听到一名护卫大喊:“陛下,小心!”

After they finished offering flowers, Ravel helped Shang Ke walked down. Just at this moment, Shang Ke saw a flash of light from the crowd. Immediately following that, he heard a guard shout, “Your Majesty, watch out!”

拉威尔还未反应过来,就见一个瘦弱的人影扑在自己身前,铂金色的头发划过他的下颌。

Ravel had not reacted over when he saw a thin and weak person threw himself in front of his body, his platinum golden hair sliding past his lower jaw.

拉威尔瞳孔收缩,一把抱住软倒在他怀里的男孩。但手掌刚刚触及他的身体,就感觉一片刺骨的寒意。下一秒,男孩上身的衣服碎成片片冰凌,洒落在地上。

Ravel’s pupils shrink, immediately holding the boy that fell softly into his embrace. But the moment his hand had touched the body, he felt a piercing chill. In the next second, the clothes on the upper portion of the boy shattered into ice, sprinkling onto the ground.

“陛下,快放下凯奇,那是冰魔!”班尼焦急的声音传入拉威尔耳中,让他空白的大脑重新运转。

“Your Majesty, quickly put Cage down! That’s ice devil!” Banny worried voice transmitted into Ravel’s ear, causing his blanked mind to finally work.

拉威尔将凯奇放在地上,他的身体正以极快的速度被冰凌冻结,但他的嘴角却挂着一抹微笑,眼神依然如平时那般温暖,绚丽的神采被永远凝固在冰凌之中。

Ravel place Cage onto the ground, his body freezing into ice at an extremely fast speed. But the corner of his mouth was still in a smile, his eyes still as gentle as before. His gorgeous expression would be forever frozen within the ice.

护卫们很快抓住了凶手,只听他嚣张地大喊:“拉威尔,你等着!我们早晚有一天会回来的。克鲁斯的意志永存!”

The guards quickly caught the assassin, but could only hear him aggressively shouting, “Ravel, just you wait! We will return one day. Cruise’s will will last forever!”

四周一片骚动,所有人都被护卫阻挡在外。

An uproar erupted from all around, but everyone was stopped by the guards outside.

拉威尔没有理会外界的嘈杂,眼中只有地上的男孩。

Ravel did not pay attention to the noise outside, his eyes only have the boy on the ground.

冰魔是一种特殊的生化武器,能够瞬间冻结目标,只是成本极高,十分罕见。它最大的好处就是隐秘,危险物品监测仪也无法检测出来。

Ice devil was a special kind of biological weapon, it was capable of freezing a target in a moment. It was just the production cost was extremely high, and very rare. It’s biggest advantage was being hidden, the dangerous item monitor was unable to detect it.

班尼走到尚可身边,拿出仪器,准备进行抢救。

Banny walked to Shang Ke’s side, took out an instrument to begin saving him.

被冰魔击中的人,身体会在极短的时间被冰冻,一般只要救治及时,还是有可能救活的。唯一需要注意的是,必须保证身体完整。冰魔化的物体十分脆弱,稍稍用力就会破碎。比如尚可的衣服,刚才就在拉威尔的掌下碎成了冰凌。

People who were hit by ice devil, their bodies would quickly freeze in a short time. As long as the person is rescued and given medical treatment in time, they still have a change of living. The only they had to take note of was that the body must be whole. The things that ice devil hit would become very weak, just a bit of strength could break it. For example, Shang Ke’s clothes, it had turned into ice shards just now under Ravel’s hands.

“怎么还不动手?”拉威尔见班尼举着仪器久久没有动作,眼中射出两道寒光。

“Why are you still not doing anything?” Ravel watched Banny raise his instrument for a long time, not moving. His eyes emitted two rays of cold light.

班尼缓缓放下仪器,轻声道:“抱歉,陛下,他已经去了。”

Banny slowly place down the instrument, quietly tell him, “I’m sorry, Your Majesty. He is already gone.”

“他被冰冻还不过两分钟!”拉威尔冷冷地盯着他。

“He had only been frozen for not even two minutes!” Ravel coldly stared at him.

“陛下,凯奇的内脏基本坏死,能活到如今,全凭他的意志。”班尼摇头道,“他已经没办法再承受解冻的压力了。只要我一动,他体内的器官立刻就会化成一滩血水。”

“Your Majesty, Cage’s internal organs simply have already necrosis. For him to live until today was because of his will.” Banny shook his head, “He cannot endure the pressure from being melted. As long as I try, the organs in his body would all immediately turned into watery blood.”

拉威尔呼吸凝滞,望着地上的男孩,眼前的一切逐渐变得暗淡,最后只剩下他胸口那一抹艳红,如血珠一般凝聚在他的瞳孔中。

Ravel’s breathing froze, his eyes landing on the boy. Everything before him gradually turned dark, the last thing that remained was that colorful red flower on his chest, like blood that condensed in his pupils.

现场数千人以及正在观看直播的所有民众都亲眼目睹了这场变故。凯奇以孱弱之躯,为拉威尔挡住了致命一击。在衣服破碎的瞬间,男孩赤裸的上身呈现在众人眼前。

The thousands of people at the scene along with those watching the live broadcast all saw for themselves, the unforeseen event. With Cage’s weak body, he took a fatal hit for Ravel. At the moment his clothes shredded, the boy’s naked upper body was shown before everyone’s eyes.

那枯瘦如柴的身躯,萎缩的肌肉,遍布全身的伤痕,让所有人都沉默了。

At dried up match-like body, withered muscles and whole body in injuries called all to fall silent.

以现今的医疗水平,普通外伤连疤痕都不会留下。但凯奇身上的伤,十几天都没有愈合,明显还有反复的痕迹,说明他的生理机能已经失去活力,细胞无法再生,所以无论如何治疗,伤势依然会继续恶化。

With the current medical treatment level, ordinary injuries wouldn’t even have a scar left behind. But the injuries on Cage’s body never healed in the dozens of days. They were clearly in a dangerous state, showing that his body’s physiology functions have already lost all energy. His cells were unable to repair, so no matter how they treated him, his condition would only continue to worsen.

众人只知道他在刑讯时的惨烈,却不知道他在刑讯之后,仍然饱受折磨。而他们还无情且无知地向他提出质疑,向这个被伤得体无完肤的男孩提出质疑。他们有什么资格侮辱他,侮辱这样一个勇敢的人?

Everyone only knew his bitterness during the torture, they did not know that even after the torture, he was still tormented. And they had even pitilessly and ignorantly called him into question, calling into question this boy who didn’t have a single place that wasn’t injured. What qualifications did they have to insult him, to insult such a brave person?

难怪他始终坐在轮椅上,并非他不尊重死者,而是因为他的肌肉严重畏缩,根本无力行走。但尽管如此,在鲜花时,他还是忍着疼痛站起来了。

No wonder he sat in the wheelchair from beginning to end, it wasn’t that he didn’t respect the dead, it was because his muscles have seriously declined, he simply had no strength to walk. But even so, when they were going to offer flowers, he still bore the pain and stood up.

他挡在拉威尔身前时,没有犹豫,没有后悔,因为最后凝固在他脸上的表情,是——一抹微笑,一抹不惧死亡、无比坦然的微笑。

When he blocked in front of Ravel’s body, he did not hesitate, he did not regret, because that final expression frozen on his face was–a smile, a fearless smile, an incomparably calm smile.
