Chapter 9: I Only Need 72 Hours To Fall In Love With You (IX)


在被击中的瞬间,尚可的灵魂就脱离了身体,只是还没有立刻回到系统空间。不过也快了,最多再等十来分钟就可以完全脱离这个世界了。

The moment he was hit, Shang Ke’s soul had immediately separated from the body, but he didn’t immediately return to the System Space. However, it wasn’t going to take long. At most he would need to wait another ten or so minutes to completely separate from this world.

“救他,我不管你用什么方法,都要把他给救活!”拉威尔一把抓住班尼的手腕,眼神冷得骇人:班尼顾不上手腕的疼痛,耐心道:“陛下,请节哀,凯奇确实已经无力回天了。强行救治的话,只会损坏他的遗体,这是陛下希望见到的吗?”

“Save him, I don’t care what method you use, you have to bring him back to life!” Ravel grabbed Banny’s wrist, his eyes so coldly terrifying. Banny didn’t attend to the pain from his wrist and patiently told him, “Your Majesty, please let go of your grief. It is already impossible to save Cage now. If we forcefully save him, then we will only damage his remains. Is this what Your Majesty wishes to see?”

拉威尔缓缓松开手,视线重新转向地上的男孩。透明的冰凌中,男孩面带微笑,目光柔和,鲜活如初。几分钟前,他还站在自己身边,搭着自己的手,和他一起向英烈们鲜花。下一秒,他就眼睁睁看着他死在自己怀中。

Ravel slowly released his hand, his gaze once again falling down to the boy on the ground. Within the transparent ice, the boy wore a smile, his eyes gentle and vivid as before. A few minutes ago, he was still standing by his side, holding his hand and offering flowers with him. In the next second, he helplessly watched him die in his own arms.

这个傻瓜,自己连走路都走不好,还想着救他!

This idiot, he couldn’t even walk well and yet still tried to save him!

拉威尔脑中不断重复凯奇挡在自己身前的画面,冰蓝色的眼眸仿佛蒙上一层薄雾。

Ravel’s mind continued to replay the scene from when Cage blocked in front of him, his icy blue eyes seemed to be covered in a layer of mist.

如果他反应更快一点,动作更敏捷一点,他……是不是就不会死了?早知如此,他无论如何也不会带他来参加这场追悼仪式。到最后,他甚至连一句话也没来得及说。

If his reaction was a bit faster and his movements a bit more quick, he…would he not have died? If he had known earlier, no matter what, he wouldn’t had let Cage participate in this memorial ceremony. Until the end, he didn’t even have the chance to say another word to him.

“陛下。”卡恩走过来,小声道,“这里不安全,属下护送您回公府。”

“Your Majesty.” Kahn walked over and said in a low voice, “This place isn’t safe, this subordinate will escort you back to the government mansion.”

拉威尔沉默片刻,说道:“运一个冰棺过来。”

Ravel remained silent for a while before telling him, “Bring an ice coffin over.”

灵魂尚可蹲在拉威尔身边,暗想这家伙不会是想把凯奇的尸体永远冷藏起来吧?

Spirit Shang Ke crouched by Ravel’s side, thinking to himself that his guy wasn’t trying to forever keep Cage’s dead body in cold storage right?

他戳了戳地上的冰尸,手指直接穿过冰凌,接触到尸体的皮肤,立刻感觉到一股吸力。还没等他反应过来,他就被吸回了凯奇的身体。

He jabbed at the ice corpse on the ground, his finger directly passing the ice and touched the skin of the dead body. Immediately, he felt an sucking force. Before he even have the chance to react, he was sucked back into Cage’s body.

【恭喜宿主,附加任务完成,并且成功复活,系统赠送15天滞留时间。】

【Congratulation to Host, additional mission completed along with your successful resurrection. System will gift you fifteen detained days.】

坑爹呢!这样还能活?

Such fraud! He could live even like this?

原以为手脚瘫痪已经够惨了,没想到还有更绝的。以冰尸状态再滞留15天?我勒了个去!

He had originally thought that his hand sand legs being paralyzed was miserable enough, he didn’t expect there was something even worse. Staying for another fifteen days as an ice corpse? I would rather go!

尚可欲哭无泪,只恨自己手贱,没事戳什么戳啊!

Shang Ke wanted to cry but had no rears, he only hated his own hand, why did he have to jab at something he didn’t need to jab at!

他透过冰凌,与上方的拉威尔四目相对。拉威尔眼神微动,身体向前倾了倾,随即听他低唤一声:“凯奇?”

His eyes met Ravel’s eyes through the ice. The emotions in Ravel’s eyes stirred, his body moving foward and then heard him call out in a soft voice, “Cage?”

呵呵,不好意思啊,在下手不动、口不能言、眼不能眨、头不能晃,没法回应您的召唤了。

Hehe, I’m very sorry, this humble self’s hands cannot move, mouth cannot speak, eyes cannot blink and head cannot move. There is no way to respond to your call.

“陛下怎么了?”班尼见拉威尔表情有异,忍不住问道。

“What’s wrong Your Majesty?” Banny saw the change in Ravel’s expression and couldn’t help but ask.

“不知道为什么,”拉威尔望着尚可的眼睛,说道,“我觉得他还有意识。”

“I don’t know why,” Ravel observed Shang Ke’s eyes and said, “I think he still has consciousness.”

“不可能的,冰魔连大脑都会冻结,怎么会……”话音未落,班尼也注意到尚可的眼睛,刚才还很凝滞,此刻就像被注入了活力,光华流转,清透灵动。

“That’s impossible. The ice devil will freeze even the brain, how could…” Banny hadn’t finish his words when he also noticed Shang Ke’s eyes. Just a moment ago they were stagnate, but now they looked as if energy was poured into them, brilliant and rippling, clear and lively.

班尼瞪大眼睛,一脸不可思议。

Banny widen his eyes, his face filled with disbelief.

拉威尔转头看向他,用认真而略带压抑的声音问道:“他还活着,对吗?”

Ravel turned his head to turned to him and used a serious and slightly constrained voice to ask, “He’s still alive, right?”

班尼说不出话来。

Banny was speechless.

“救他。”拉威尔语带强硬,“救他!”

“Save him.” Ravel’s voice became stronger, “Save him!”

班尼看了看冰凌中的凯奇,一咬牙,点头道:“我尽力。”

Banny looked Cage who was encased in ice, clenched his teeth and nodded, “I will do my best.”

凯奇的生命力之强,是他生平罕见,也许这次又能创造一个奇迹。解冻的成功率,取决于他所能坚持的时间长短。

Cage’s strong vitality was something he rarely seen. Perhaps he could create another miracle. The success rate for defrosting him depended upon how long he could persist.

不过一会,冰棺运了过来。

However, in a moment, the ice coffin was brought over.

因为冰魔化的身体十分脆弱,所以必须采取特殊方法搬运,才能保证完好无损。

Because bodies that had been hit by the ice devil become especially weak, they had to use special methods to move it and guarantee its good condition.

拉威尔命人小心将冰冻的凯奇抬起,心中重新燃起希望,只想尽快赶往医院。

Ravel ordered the men to carefully lift up the frozen Cage. Hope once again lit up in his heart, he could only think of moving Cage to the hospital as soon as possible.

班尼则在一旁用电话通知医院做好相关的治疗准备。

Banny was by the side using his cell phone to notify the hospital to make preparations to treat Cage.

外面的记者见到这一幕,心里不由得生出一个大胆的猜测,难道凯奇还有救活的可能?这可是大新闻!

When the reporters outside saw this scene, their hearts couldn’t help but give birth to a brazen guess. Perhaps Cage still has a chance to be brought back to life? This is big news!

他们纷纷举起摄像仪,不顾场面的混乱和护卫的严防,见缝插针般地拍摄着。

They heaved up their cameras one by one, regardless of the surrounding confusion and strict precautions by the guards, they made use of every second to film.

凯奇的身体被搬进冰棺,护卫们推着它朝梭车移去,拉威尔和班尼紧随其后。

Cage’s body was moved into the ice coffin while the guards pushed it toward the shuttle car. Ravel and Banny followed closely behind.

【附加任务2:帮拉威尔躲过炸弹的袭击。若完成这个任务而未死,宿主就可以选择留在这个世界挥霍人生了。】

【Additional mission 2: Help Ravel avoid a bomb attack. As long as this mission is completed and Host does not die, then Host can chose to stay in this world and live freely.】

系统,我忍你很久了!到底还有完没完?!你TM变成一具尸体去帮拉威尔躲过炸弹的袭击给我看看!

System, I bore with you for a long time! Are you not done playing around yet?! You fucking go try to help Ravel avoid a bomb attack as a corpse for me to see!

尚可躺在冰柜中出离的愤怒了。活人有尊严,尸体也有好吗!

Shang Ke was utterly angered while lying in the freezer. A living person has dignity, a dead person does too!

正在这时,冰棺外突然传来一阵喧哗声,似乎有人摔倒了,然后引起连锁反应。

Just at this moment, a clamor suddenly came from outside the ice coffin, someone seem to have fallen, and after that was a chain reaction.

接着,冰棺被重重撞击了一下,发出“砰”地一声,随即就听到拉威尔的怒吼:“不要!”

Following that, the ice coffin was heavily hitted several times, making “bang” sounds. Immediately, he heard Ravel’s bellow, “Don’t!”

尚可敢肯定,这绝对是拉威尔有史以来所喊出的最赋有激情的两个字。

Shang Ke was certain, this was definitely the most passionate word Ravel has ever yelled in his entire life.

接着,一阵天旋地转,身体倾斜下坠,随着一片破碎声响起,他的意识彻底陷入黑暗。

Subsequently, the world swirled and his body fell, along with it was the sound of shattering, then his consciousness fell into darkness.

终于,解脱了……

Finally, he was free…

拉威尔眼睁睁地看着凯奇从翻倒的冰柜中滚落出来,摔在地上碎成片片冰晶,混合着鲜血,在阳光在闪烁着刺目的光芒。

Ravel watched with his own eyes as Cage’s ice coffin was overturned and he tumbled out, falling onto the ground and shattering into pieces of ice crystals mixed with blood. Under the sunshine, they flickered unpleasantly to the eyes.

周围一切都仿佛静止了,拉威尔僵直地站在原地,瞳孔仿佛失去了焦距。

It was as if everything around his stilled, Ravel stood stiffly in place, his pupils losing focus.

正当他准备移动时,突然听到不远处传来一声巨大的震响,一辆梭车被爆炸引起的火焰团团包裹。

Just when he was about to move, he suddenly heard a great trembling sound from not too far. A shuttle car was wrapped by a blaze of fire caused by an explosion.

那辆梭车正是准备用来运送冰棺的工具,因为赶得匆忙,并没有及时检查。拉威尔待会肯定也会坐上这辆梭车,若非中途发生意外,他和冰棺中的凯奇都会被炸成碎片。

That shuttle car was the one used to transport the ice coffin. Because they were in a hurry, they did not spend the time to inspect it. Ravel would had certainly sat in it as well. If it weren’t for this unexpected event, he and the ice coffin with Cage would have both been expoded into fragments.

“陛下,凯奇又救了您一命。”班尼沉重地说,“我想,这就是他最后的心愿。”

“Your Majesty, Cage saved your life again.” Banny heavily spoke, “I think, that is his final wish.”

粉身碎骨,为君护持。

Torned body and crushed bones, all to protect the monarch.

拉威尔视线一片模糊,眼中唯一的色彩,也随着那朵苍穹赤炎的凋谢而消失了。

Everything before Ravel’s eyes turned fuzzy, the only color in his eyes, along with that Flaming Red Sky Flowr, both withered and disappeared.

他的世界,从此只剩下黑白……

His world, once again only remained black and white…

【恭喜宿主,任务完成。虽然最后粉身碎骨,没有再复活的可能,但仍然可获得三倍奖励。】

【Congratulation Host, mission complete. Although your end was a torn body and crushed bones, and you are not able to resurrect, you still obtained three times the reward.】

“真是太感谢了!”尚可几乎要哭了,这个任务不过二十天,最后居然死得连渣都不剩了,“系统,别告诉我以后的任务都这么凶残?”

“I’m really too thankful!” Shang Ke was almost ready to cry, this mission only lasted twenty days, yet he actually died with not even a bit of his body left. “System, don’t tell me that every mission I take after will be so cruel?”

【不是的,因为第一个世界有额外优待,所以才会让你如此轻松地度过,而且还成功将死亡艺术发挥到了极致。】

【That is not so, it’s because the first world has extra preferential treatment. Therefore you could pass it so easily. Furthermore, you were able to successfully display the art of dying to the pinnable.】

“这也叫额外优待?!还轻松度过?”尚可简直不敢相信。

“This is extra preferential treatment?! And even an easy pass?” Shang Ke simply could not believe it.

【当然,第一个世界的任务,坐着也能完成,站着也能完成,躺着也能完成。】

【Of course, the first world’s mission, you can complete it while sitting, you can complete it while standing, even lying down you can complete it.】

尚可的表情一片空白,他的三个任务,可不是“坐着”完成、“站着”完成和“躺着”完成的吗?

Shang Ke’s expression was completely blank, his three missions, weren’t they just “sitting” and completed, “standing” and completed, and “lying” and completed?

坐着受刑,站着挡枪,躺着碎裂……呵呵,果然是死得够极致,够艺术。

Receiving torture while standing, blocking a bullet while standing, lying down and shattering into small pieces…hehe, he really did die shockingly enough, artistic enough.

【从第二个世界开始,这种额外优待就没有了,完全要靠你自己去找死。】

【Starting from the second misson, this kind of extra preferental treatment will be gone. Too complete missions, you have to go court death yourself.】

这话听着怎么就这么不顺耳呢?什么叫“靠你自己去找死”?以为他很喜欢找死吗?而且,找死有什么难?

Why do those words sound so adversed to his ears? What “you have to go court death yourself”? Did it think he liked to court death? Furthermore, how hard is it to court death?

【请宿主记住,你的死亡必须符合“英勇”的条件,普通的意外死亡将视为任务失败。若选择自杀,或者寿终正寝,违背这两点原则,系统将给予相应的惩罚。】

【Please remember Host, your death has to be in line with the “heroic” condition. A normal accidental death will be viewed as failure. If you chose to suicide, or die of old age, going against the two doctrine, the System will give the corresponding penalty.】

“惩罚不就是增加任务次数吗?”

“Isn’t the penalty just increasing the number of missions?”

【请不要大意,任务若是一直失败,惩罚就会不断累计,宿主很有可能进入无限死亡轮回。】

【Please do not become careless. If missions are constantly failed, then the penalty will continue to accumulate. Host may possible enter an unlimited death cycle.】

尚可:“……”好吧,这个后果确实很严重。

Shang Ke: “……” Alright, this consequence really is severe.

【现在,请宿主接收奖励。】

【Right now, may Host please receive your reward.】

终于有一件让人愉快的事情了。

Finally something that would make someone happy.

【第一个世界,完成一个主线任务和两个附加任务,体质+10(+5+5),记忆力+20(+10+5),精神力+15(+5+5),美貌+15(+10+5),寿命+5(+1+2),括号里的点数为附加任务奖励。】

【Your first world, completed one main mission and two additional mission. Constitution +10 (+5 +5), Memory +20 (+10 +5), Spiritual Power +15 (+5 +5), Beauty +15 (+10 +5), Life Span +5 (+1 +2), the numbers in the parenthesis are the reward from the additional missions.】

“不是还有技艺吗?”

“Isn’t there skills too?”

【是的,另外可选择两种技艺进行学习。】系统将所有技艺选项展开,足有七十七种。有些技能,尚可甚至听都没听过。

【Yes, you can choose two types of skill to start learning.】 The System revealed all the skill for him to chose. There were a totaly of seventy-seven types, some skills he had never even heard of before.

他想了想,决定还是先提升自己的实力比较靠谱,于是他选择了“武术”和“魔法”。

He thought for a bit and decided it was best to promote his strength. So he chose “martial arts” and “magic”.

【抱歉,宿主的体质还未达到学习武术和魔法的标准。】

【Sorry, Host’s constituion has not reached the required level for learning martial arts and magic.】

“什么?还有体质限制?”

“What? There’s even a constitution restriction?”

【所有选项中,只有点亮的技能才能选择,技能呈灰色,说明宿主还没有达到学习的条件。】

【Among all the choices, only those that are lit up can be chosen. The skills that are grey means that the host has not reached the condition to learn them.】

尚可再朝技艺选项看去,七十七种技能,只有“乐器”、“厨艺”、“绘画”、“表演”、“赛车”、“化妆”、“游泳”被点亮了。

Shang Ke once again looked toward the skills. Among the seventy-seven skills, only “musical instrument”, “cooking”, “drawing”, “acting”, “racing”, “makeup”, and “swimming” were lit up.

他问道:“我能不能查看自己的身体数据?”

He asked, “Can I look at my body’s data?

【宿主为灵魂状态,无法查看身体数据。只有等宿主回到自己的本体,才能检测宿主的身体素质。】

【Because Host is still spirit mode, you cannot look over your body data. Only when Host returns to your own body would you be able to detect your basic profile.】

【宿主决定选择哪两种技能了吗?】

【Has Host chosen which two skills to learn?】

尚可仔细想了想,最后选了“厨艺”和“乐器”。

Shang Ke carefully thought and finally chose “cooking” and “musical instrument”.

【选择确认,接下来将进入百炼空间。】

【Selection made, now Host will enter the hundred training space.】

“百炼空间?”

“Hundred training space?”

【所有技能都需要在百炼空间学习和熟练之后才能完全掌握。】

【All skills must be learned within and trained within the hundred training spce to completely master it.】

尚可觉得这个安排很合理,凭空得来的技能,永远没有真材实料的踏实感。

Shang Ke felt this arrangement was very reasonable. Baseless skills will never give the feeling of being steady.

然而让尚可没想到的是,他这次进入百炼空间,居然花了十年时间。虽然后面系统解释百炼空间的时间比例与外界不同,但还是把他郁闷得够呛。

However, what Shang Ke didn’t expect was that when he entered the hundred training space, he had actually used ten years. Although the System explained to him later that time ran differently in the hundred training space compared to the outside world, it still made him terribly depressed.

谁能忍受十年如一日的学习厨艺和乐器?!而且没有达到大师级前都不准离开。厨艺还好说,他的时间主要是花在乐器上。幸好他只选择了钢琴和笛子两种乐器,若再多选几种,估计他几十年都出不来!

Who can endure ten years of learning cooking and musical instrument?! And before he reached great master level, he’s not allowed to leave. Cooking was still manageble, his time was mainly spent on the instrument. Fortunately he only chose the piano and flute. If he were to chose a couple more, then he likely wouldn’t even come out in ten years!

十年苦练结束后,尚可正式进入第二个世界。

After ten years of harsh training, Shang Ke formally entered the second world.

  1. Imagine the only person you’ve ever love died tragically right in front of your eyes, torned to ice pieces mix with blood… okay, if Ravel go mentally insane by this, i would not be surprised…

    *drowning in sea of tears*
    …So many tissue used…

    Thanks for the 1st Arc chapters’ batch!
    Now, I need to mentally prepared myself if this kind of ending is going to continue for the next arc too.

    “Receiving torture while standing, blocking a bullet while standing, lying down and shattering into small pieces…hehe, he really did die shockingly enough, artistic enough.” In this, isn’t it “Receiving torture while sitting…” not “Recieving torture while standing…” ?
