Chapter 145: I Am An Evil Pen (II)


TL: Resonance

    尚可凝聚成灵体在黑暗的房间中飘来飘去,眼睛时不时朝床上酣睡的男人瞥上一眼。突然,他身形一顿,想起自己穿越成神像时,曾经用入梦的方法,给他的信奉者传授技能。

Shang Ke condensed himself into his spiritual state and floated about in the dark room. Once in a while, he would glance at the man who was sleeping on the bed. Suddenly, his figure came to a stop. He remembered that when he transmigrated into a statue, he had imparted his believers with skills by entering their dreams.

    煞笔虽然没有神像那么强大,但是由煞气转化而成的法力,应该可以助他入梦。

Although an evil pen wasn’t as strong as a statue, he should be able to enter his dream using the power gained after converting the negative energy.

    尚可运转了一下体内的力量,或许是因为饥饿太久,又或许是从未打理过,他的力量就像一团乱麻,毫无章法地纠缠在一起。尚可尝试用修真功法进行疏离和精炼,运转几个周天后,才勉强将这股力量撸顺,连同那种让人焦躁的饥饿感也减轻不少。

Shang Ke circulated the power within his body. The power within his body was in a mess and all tangled up without order, perhaps because his body has been hungry for too long or because it was never managed. Shang Ke tried using cultivation methods to segregate and refine his powers. He only managed to smoothen his power after circulating it for a few days. The irritable sense of hunger also lessened significantly.

    看来灵修的功法也适应于笔灵,只是因为这个世界没有灵气,他能够调动的,也只有笔灵本身积攒的煞气。

Looks like spiritual practice is also suitable for a pen spirit. However, this world doesn’t have spiritual qi. The only thing he could circulate was the negative energy accumulated by the pen spirit.

    原来的笔灵就是因为失去煞气来源,又不懂得如何修炼,才导致意识消亡。如果他无法为自己续命,恐怕早晚也会步上笔灵的后尘。

As it turns out, the pen spirit has perished because it lost its source of negative energy and also because it didn’t know how to cultivate. If Shang Ke can’t find ways to extend his life, he will soon follow the footsteps of the pen spirit.

    一般人身上都带有煞气,无论多少,维持尚可的基本所需完全没问题,但闻景戎是个异数,即使他身上出现煞气,也很快会被福气给中和,连一点渣渣都不会剩下。至于他身边人的煞气,更是连近身的机会都没有。

Normally, everyone has negative energy on them. No matter how little they had, it was enough to maintain all of Shang Ke’s basic needs. However, Wen Jingrong was an exception. Even if he had negative energy on him, it will be neutralized by his blessing very quickly without leaving even a tiny bit behind. As for the negative energy on the people around him, there wasn’t even a chance to get near them.

    尚可要做的,就是尽快修炼法力,争取早日摆脱契约屏障,从闻景戎以外的人身上吸取煞气。

What Shang Ke wants to do is to quickly cultivate his powers so that he can break free from the barriers of the contract faster. Then, he can start absorbing negative energy from people other than Wen Jingrong.

    打定主意后,尚可运转法力,化作一团烟雾,进入闻景戎的梦境。

After making up his mind, Shang Ke circulated his powers. He turned into a cloud of smoke and entered Wen Jingrong’s dream.

    以他目前的法力,是无法控制别人的梦境的,只能作为“客人”置身其中。

He has no way to control someone’s dream with his current power. He could only be in it as a “guest”.

    熟睡的闻景戎并没有做梦,梦中的世界一片混沌。这时,一道白色的身影忽然闪现,瞬间点亮了原本灰暗的世界,脚尖轻盈落下,泛起一圈圈涟漪,如羽毛一般,温柔地唤“醒”了闻景戎的意识。

Wen Jingrong who was sleeping soundly wasn’t having a dream, so his dream world was just a chaotic mess. Then, a white figure suddenly appeared and instantly lit up the dark world. His feet gently landed, causing ripples to form around it. Like a feather, he gently “woke” up Wen Jingrong’s consciousness.

    闻景戎望着不远处那团闪烁的光影,双腿不受控制地向“它”走过去。每靠近一步,影子的轮廓便清晰一分,待到近前,他已经化作人形。准确地来说,是一名身材修长、背影纤瘦的男子。

Wen Jingrong looked at the flickering figure not far away and his legs made its way to “it” without his control. The figure’s profile became clearer the closer he got. When Wen Jingrong was near it, the figure had already become human-shaped. To be exact, it was a tall and slender man with a thin back. 

    尚可诧异地发现,进入闻景戎的梦境后,自己原本毫无规则的身形,开始自行转化。不过片刻,便有了人类的形态。

Shang Ke was astonished to realise his disorderly figure starting to transform itself after Wen Jingrong entered his dreamland. It only took a moment for him to have a human figure.

    “你是谁?”一个声音突然从身后传来。

“Who are you?” A voice suddenly sounded behind him.

    尚可下意识转过头,露出一张……空白的脸。

Shang Ke turned around subconsciously and revealed a… blank face.

    闻景戎:“……”带着期待想要一窥真容,结果发现对方根本没有五官,心中的失望远远多过惊悚。

Wen Jingrong: “…”  He was looking forward to seeing his face, only to realise that the other person didn’t have any facial features at all. The disappointment in his heart was way more than his fear.

    “你是谁?”闻景戎又问了一次。尽管面目模糊,但他还是想知道他的身份。

“Who are you?” Wen Jingrong asked again. Despite the person’s blurry appearance, Wen Jingrong still wanted to know his identity.

    尚可很想回答,然而根本没有嘴巴可用,只能做一个安静的(无脸)美男子,他的内心是崩溃的。

Shang Ke wished to reply very much. However, he didn’t have a mouth he could use. He could only be a quiet (faceless) handsome man. He also felt desperate.

    闻景戎眯起眼,试图从那张空白的脸上找到他的五官,可惜始终是模糊一片。

Wen Jingrong narrowed his eyes. He tried to find Shang Ke’s facial features on that blank face. Unfortunately, it was blurry from start until end.

    他很少做梦,但只要做梦,每次醒来都会有种空虚的感觉,好像失去了什么,又或者在寻找什么。梦中这名男子的出现,让他原本毫无着落的思绪,第一次有了踏实的感觉。

He rarely dreamed, but whenever he dreamed, he always woke up feeling empty as if he had lost something or was searching for something. The appearance of this man in his dream caused his unsettled thoughts to feel sober for the first time.

    闻景戎忍不住伸出手,想要更加真切地感受他的存在,然而手指刚刚碰触他的身体,眼前的一切开始变得模糊,随后彻底陷入一片黑暗。

Wen Jingrong couldn’t help but stretch out his hand wanting to feel his existence more vividly. However, Wen Jingrong’s fingers had just touched his body when everything before his eyes became blurry and then fell completely into darkness.

    闻景戎猛地睁开眼,只看到一室寂静的清辉。

Wen Jingrong’s eyes shot open and only saw his quiet room light up by the moonlight.

    他坐起身,从床头抽出一根烟叼上,脑中不断回想梦中出现的那抹白影,深邃的眼眸在烟雾中忽明忽暗,难以捉摸。

He sat up, took out a cigarette from the bedside and put it in his mouth. He kept thinking about the white figure that appeared in his dream and his deep eyes was difficult to fathom as it brightened and darkened within the smoke.

    尚可毫无人形地趴在床上,一副脱力的样子。第一次入梦,一句话没说,一个脸没露就被挤出来了,还弄得自己要死不活。看来必须先修炼一段时间再考虑入梦的问题了,否则非得把自己耗死不可。

Shang Ke laid on the bed without a human form, looking very weak. He entered a dream for the first time. He hasn’t said anything and couldn’t even reveal his face yet he’s already half dead. Looks like he will have to cultivate for a period of time before he considers entering a dream again. Or else, he might really get himself killed.

    接下来,尚可再也没有尝试入梦,而是待在闻景戎身边安安稳稳地修炼。

Afterwards, Shang Ke no longer tried to enter his dream. Instead, he stayed by Wen Jingrong’s side and cultivated smoothly.

    然而,他没想到这次入梦给闻景戎留下了一个不大不小的后遗症。

However, he didn’t expect that his entering of dream this time gave Wen Jingrong some after effects.

    闻景戎开始从约会女人,变成了约会男人。但凡被他看上的,都会接到他的邀约,不过每个约会对象基本都是见过一次就over。一个月下来,不知道多少美男被他弄得“春心”萌动。

Wen Jingrong changed from dating woman to dating man. As long as someone catches his fancy, that person will receive his invitation to date. However, all of them were basically over after one date. For the past month, there were many handsome men who were moved by his “love”.

    闻景戎是塔姆星球知名的黄金贵族,身家不菲,外貌出众,在圈内人气极高。尽管同性恋情不是主流,但闻景戎的行为,无疑给某些单身男性一种明确的暗示,让他们的心思活跃起来。

Wen Jingrong was a well known golden aristocrat of Tahm. His family background is extraordinary, he had excellent looks and he was very popular within the circle. Although homosexuality wasn’t mainstream, Wen Jingrong’s actions has undoubtedly hinted some single males and made their thoughts jump.

    不少男性开始主动来勾搭闻景戎,他们私下找不到见面的机会,便想办法参加闻景戎出席的酒会,制造各种意外加深印象。

Many males started taking initiative to hook up Wen Jingrong. They weren’t able to find a chance to meet Wen Jingrong privately, so they tried to find ways to attend parties he showed up in to create various accidents to deepen Wen Jingrong’s impression on them.

    闻景戎有时候会配合着搭讪几句,有时候却连一个眼神也欠奉。几次之后,很快有人发现他青睐的男性,基本都是一个类型,身材修长,气质温润。可惜还没有人成为他的入幕之宾,也不知道他到底想要找一个怎样的男伴。

Sometimes, Wen Jingrong would cooperate and strike up a conversation with them. Sometimes, he doesn’t even spare them a glance. After a few times, people soon noticed that the males he favoured were of a particular type. They all looked tall and slim with a warm temperament. Unfortunately, none of them were able to get closer to him. No one knew just what kind of male partner he was looking for.

    尚可挂在闻景戎的衣袖上,眼睁睁地看着他美男环伺,桃花朵朵,心里说不出的郁闷。

Shang Ke was hanging on Wen Jingrong’s sleeve. He saw Wen Jingrong being surrounded by handsome men all full of love and felt depressed in his heart.

    “闻总,这份文件需要您签字。”秘书将文件递到闻景戎面前。

“President Wen, there’s a document that needs to be signed.” The secretary placed the document in front of Wen Jingrong.

    闻景戎习惯性地取下袖扣,转换笔形后,抬手在文件上划动,结果发现没有留下一点墨迹。

Wen Jingrong habitually took down his cufflink and changed it into a pen. He then moved his hand above the document, only to realise that there was no ink.

    闻景戎皱了皱眉头,拿起手上的魔数笔看了看,似乎没什么问题。

Wen Jingrong furrowed his brows. He raised the magic pen in his hand for a look but couldn’t see any problems with it.

    魔数笔上有指纹鉴定,外人虽然也能书写,但只有笔的主人亲自使用才具有法律效用,这也是塔姆星人习惯携带魔数笔的原因。

There was fingerprint identification on the magic pen. Other people could still use it to write, but only when the pen owner uses it personally could the legal effect be utilised. This was also why it was a habit for the people of Tahm to carry a magic pen around.

    闻景戎又试了几下,依然没能写出字迹,只好取出备用魔数笔,在文件上签下自己的名字。

Wen Jingrong tried it a few more times but still wasn’t able to write anything. He could only take out his spare magic pen to sign his name on the document.

    签完后,闻景戎将备用魔数笔也扣在袖子上,与尚可搭了个伴。

After signing, Wen Jingrong wore the magic pen as a cufflink on his sleeves as well and gave Shang Ke a companion.

    尚可望着身边这个新来的小伙伴,招呼道:“好巧,我们都是袖扣形魔数笔。”

Shang Ke looked at the new buddy by his side and greeted, “What a coincidence, we are both cufflink magic pens.”

    新来的小伙伴高冷地沉默着。

The new buddy coldly remained silent.

    尚可心情不爽,决定短时间内都不让闻景戎使用自己的身体。

Shang Ke felt unhappy so he decided not to let Wen Jingrong use his body for a short period of time.

    还没下班,闻景戎便离开了公司,开车去了一家私人修理店。

It wasn’t time to get off work yet but Wen Jingrong already left the office and drove to a private repair shop.

    “文胸,好久不见。”店主是一个四十几岁的帅大叔,见到闻景戎走进来,热情地打着招呼。

“Bra[1], long time no see.” The shop owner was a 40+ years old handsome uncle. He greeted enthusiastically when he saw Wen Jingrong enter.

    “不要叫我‘文胸’!”闻景戎瞪了他一眼,然后将尚可取下来,递到他面前,“帮我看看,是不是出了故障?”

“Don’t call me ‘bra’!” Wen Jingrong gave him a glare before he took Shang Ke off and passed it to him. “Help me take a look. Is it malfunctioning?”

    帅大叔接过魔数笔,赞道:“看这个造型,是几十年前的风格,保养得真不错,功能也很齐全,以前是不是改造过?”

The handsome uncle received the magic pen and complimented, “Look at this model, it’s a design of several decades ago. It’s well maintained and has quite a complete set of functions. Has it been modified before?”

    “大概吧。”闻景戎五年前才从父亲手上继承这支笔,不知道父亲有没有改造过,功能与现代产品倒没什么差别。

“Perhaps.” Wen Jingrong inherited this pen from his father five years ago. He doesn’t know if his father has ever modified it before, but it’s function wasn’t that different from modern products.

    帅大叔将他转化成笔形,在纸上写了几下,字迹清晰,颜色均匀,并没有什么问题。

The handsome uncle changed the cufflink into a pen and tried writing on a paper. The words were legible and the ink was uniform. There weren’t any problems.

    “这不是很正常吗?”帅大叔纳闷地看向闻景戎。

“Isn’t it functioning well?” The handsome uncle looked at Wen Jingrong in wonder.

    闻景戎将笔拿回来,也在纸上写了几下,结果依然是一片空白。

Wen Jingrong took the pen back and also tried writing on the paper. However, the result was still blank white.

    帅大叔又拿去试,很顺利地将字写了出来。但只要换到闻景戎手上,立刻就不行了。

The handsome uncle took it back to try again and was able to write successfully.  However, as long as the pen was in Wen Jingrong’s hands, it was immediately impossible to write.

    “哈哈哈。”帅大叔忍不住大笑道,“文胸,看来这支笔很不待见你啊!你到底怎么虐待它了?”

“Hahaha.” The handsome uncle couldn’t help but laugh out loud, “Bra, seems like this pen doesn’t like you! Just how did you abuse it?” 

    闻景戎盯着手上的笔,一脸阴郁,身上随之冒出一丝煞气。

Wen Jingrong stared at the pen in his hand with a gloomy expression. Subsequently, a trace of negative energy appeared on his body.

    尚可的灵体迅猛朝那丝煞气飞过去,动作不可谓不快,反应不可谓不敏捷,可惜最终还是没能敌过福光的净化。美味的煞气就在他眼前烟消云散。

Shang Ke’s spiritual body quickly flew towards that trace of negative energy. His speed of reaction and movement couldn’t be considered slow, but he ultimately wasn’t able to beat the blessing’s purification. The delicious negative energy disappeared before his eyes.

    尚可如一团棉花般,软塌塌地落在地上。

Shang Ke fell on the ground softly like a ball of cotton.

    想吃点煞气怎么就那么难呢!

Why is it so hard to eat some negative energy!

    “你的魔数笔没问题。”帅大叔仔细检查后,做出专业的判断,“我觉得有问题的是你的人品。”

“There’s no problem with your magic pen.” After checking carefully, the handsome uncle gave his professional judgement and said, “I feel that it’s your character that has problems.”

    闻景戎将魔数笔收好,头也不回地离开了这家修理店。

Wen Jingrong kept the magic pen and left the repair shop without looking back.

    晚上,闻景戎梳洗完毕,先躺在床上看了会电视,然后拿起魔数笔开始研究。

At night, Wen Jingrong finished bathing and laid on the bed to watch a while of TV. Then, he picked up the magic pen and started studying it.

    这支笔跟了他好几年,从来没出过什么故障,怎么突然就不能用了?而且只有他本人不能用。闻景戎莫名觉得不快,有一种被自己的东西叛变的感觉。想了半天也没想出什么头绪,闻景戎只好先把笔放到一边,熄灯睡觉。

This pen has been with him for quite a few years and never malfunctioned before. Why is he suddenly unable to use it? And it was only him who couldn’t use it. Wen Jingrong felt unhappy for some reason, feeling like he had been betrayed by his own item. He couldn’t think of anything despite thinking for so long. Wen Jingrong could only put his pen aside first as he switched off the lights to sleep.

    尚可轻飘飘地坐在闻景戎的身上,不断做鬼脸吓他,尽管他什么也看不到。

Shang Ke sat lightly on Wen Jingrong’s body and kept making faces to scare him in spite of Wen Jingrong being unable to see any of it.

    “你等着,我马上就去梦里收拾你!”尚可忿忿地朝他挥了挥拳。

“Just you wait. I’m going into your dreams to settle with you right away!” Shang Ke waved his fist at him indignantly.

    话音刚落,就见床上的男人突然睁开眼,锐利的目光直直朝尚可所在的方向射过来。

Just as he finished speaking, the man on the bed suddenly opened his eyes and stared sharply towards the direction of Shang Ke.

    尚可猛地向后一弹:尼玛,吓死人了!

Shang Ke springed backwards strongly: Fucking hell, you scared me!

    闻景戎疑惑地扫视了一下四周。

Wen Jingrong looked around in confusion.

    这里,这里!尚可在空中摆了个扭曲的poss。

Here, here! Shang Ke striked a distorted pose in the air.

    闻景戎只觉得头顶阴风阵阵,皱着眉头瞪视片刻,没有发现什么异常,又缓缓闭上了眼睛。

Wen Jingrong could only feel wind blowing past his head. After staring for a moment with furrowed brows, he didn’t notice anything unusual so he closed his eyes again slowly.

    不过一会,便进入睡眠状态。

After a while, he fell asleep.

    尚可酝酿了一下情绪,使用法力,再次进入闻景戎的梦境中。

Shang Ke adjusted his mood. Then, he used his power and entered Wen Jingrong’s dream land once again.

    与上次一样,刚入梦,他便拥有了人的形体。

Just like last time, he obtained a human figure the moment he entered the dream.

    还没来得及有所行动,就被一双大手抱住,耳边随即传来男人低沉的声音:“抓到你了。”

He had yet to make any moves when he was hugged by a pair of large hands. The man’s low voice sounded by his ear, “I caught you.”

    梦中应该不会有什么触感的,但闻景戎的靠近,却让尚可感觉后背一热,熟悉的气息将他团团包裹。

There shouldn’t be any sense of touch in the dream. However, Shang Ke felt his back heating up and he was surrounded by a familiar breath as Wen Jingrong neared him.

    尚可没有挣扎,而是先摸了摸自己的脸,结果发现他竟然有五官了!

Shang Ke didn’t struggle free. Instead, he touched his face first and realised that he actually had facial features!

    “告诉我,你是谁?”

“Tell me. Who are you?”

    我就是你身边那支煞笔——尚可当然不会这么回答。

I’m the evil pen by your side—Of course Shang Ke couldn’t answer this way.

    闻景戎没有得到回应,便勾住他的腰,缓缓将他的身体转过来。

Wen Jingrong didn’t receive any reply, so he held Shang Ke’s waist and slowly turned him around.

[1] The shop owner called Wen Jingrong 文胸(wen-xiong) which means bra and at the same time sounds like 闻兄(wen-xiong) which means brother Wen, 闻 being Wen Jingrong’s surname.
