Chapter 146: I Am An Evil Pen (III)


TL: Resonance

    让闻景戎失望的是,眼前的人这次虽然有五官,但脸上就像戴着一层薄纱,隐隐绰绰看不真切。闻景戎伸手在他脸上细细描画,眉毛、眼睛、鼻子、嘴唇……温热的呼吸拂过指尖,感觉是如此真实。在脑中勾勒他的容貌,却无法想象他的神韵。

To Wen Jingrong’s disappointment, the person before him had facial features this time but his face seemed to be covered by a layer of tulle. Wen Jingrong couldn’t see his face clearly. Wen Jingrong stretched out his hand and traced his face gently. His brows, eyes, nose and lips… Warm breath brushed past his fingers. Everything felt so realistic. Wen Jingrong tried outlining his appearance in his mind, but wasn’t able to imagine what his soul was like.

    尚可被他摸得发痒,忍不住笑起来。

Shang Ke felt tickled by his touch and couldn’t help but laugh.

    “笑什么?”不知道为什么,听到他的笑声,心情都变好了。

“What are you laughing at?” For some reason, Wen Jingrong’s mood felt better listening to his laughter.

    尚可刚想开口,却发现四周的景象开始晃动起来,心知自己大概又要被挤出去了。

Shang Ke was about to reply when he noticed the surrounding area starting to shake. He knew he was probably going to be forced again.

    “等等!”闻景戎伸手去抓,结果抓了个空。

“Wait!” Wen Jingrong stretched out his hand to catch him but caught nothing.

    意识中只留下一个轻灵的声音:“以后能不能好好练习一下做梦技巧?”

Only a graceful voice was left in his consciousness: “Can you practice on your dreaming skills next time?”

    练习做梦技巧?闻景戎坐在床上,看着窗外破晓的天空,嘴角微微上扬。虽然还是没有看清他的样子,但心中已经有了大致轮廓,更别说还听到了他的声音。

Practice on my dreaming skills? Wen Jingrong sat on the bed with a light smile as he looked at the daybreak sky outside the window. Though Wen Jingrong still wasn’t able to see his appearance, he already has a rough outline in his heart. He even got to hear his voice.

    片刻后,闻景戎又收敛表情,对一个虚幻的梦中人心动,自己到底在兴奋什么?

After a while, Wen Jingrong was expressionless again. What was he so excited about feeling for an illusory person in his dream?

    大力掀开被子,闻景戎走进浴室。

Wen Jingrong lifted his blanket strongly and walked into the bathroom.

    尚可飘在半空,这次入梦没有第一次那么艰难,可见他这段时间的修炼很有成效。等他将所有煞气转化为法力,说不定就能凝聚实体了。

Shang Ke floated in the air. Entering Wen Jingrong’s dream this time wasn’t as difficult as the first time. It’s evident that his practice all these while was effective. He might be able to condense into a physical body after he finishes converting all the negative energy into power.

    照常挂在闻景戎的袖子上,跟着他去公司。闻景戎的产业遍布全球,涉及多个行业。他是白手起家,虽然比不上那些家底丰厚的家族,但自身能力卓越,眼光独到,赚钱的速度好像坐火箭一般,嗖地一下就上天了。

Shang Ke hung on Wen Jingrong’s sleeve as usual and followed him to his office. Wen Jingrong has business all over the planet involving many different industries. He started them from scratch. Although he couldn’t be compared to those rich families, he had great capabilities and unique foresight. He earned money at the speed of a rocket, flying to the top in an instant.

    但他性格强势,行事狠厉,让他的竞争对手忌惮万分,想弄死他的人不知凡几,只是至今还没有人成功过。闻景戎本身拥有很高的武力值,与很多ZF要员关系良好,每年给国家缴纳的税收就是一笔天文数字。更重要的是,他只专注于商业,从不利用手中的财力左右ZF决策。光凭这几点,便足以得到ZF最大程度的支持。

He has a strong personality and is decisive and ruthless, making all his competitors fear him. There were many people who wished to kill him, but no one has ever been successful to date. Wen Jingrong was of great value. He has a good relationship with many important government figures and pays an astronomical amount of tax every year. Most importantly, he only focuses on business and has never made use of his wealth to meddle with government’s decision making. Just this point alone warrants him the greatest support from the government.

    尚可想要完成任务,最好借助闻景戎的力量,以他的产业,吸收一千劳动力还是不难的。只是这个时代大部分工厂都已经实现智能化,对低层劳动力的需求越来越少。若没有一技之长,就只能选择自己创业或者从事服务行业。但创业需要本钱,而服务行业对外形要求颇高。

If Shang Ke wished to complete his mission, it was best to borrow Wen Jingrong’s power. With all his business, it isn’t difficult to take in 1000 workers. However, in this age, most factories can already be automated. The need for low level laborers is getting lesser and lesser. If one doesn’t have a skill of their own, they can only choose to start a business on their own or work in the service industry. However, starting a business requires money and the service industry has high requirements on one’s appearance.

    任务规定的1000人是无业游民、下岗职工、退伍军人以及刑满释放人员。这几类人,除了退伍军人之外,大多没有什么特殊技能,外形估计也不达标,否则也不至于找不到工作,这个时代的人工服务费是很高的,大多集中在餐饮、娱乐、保健、美容、清洁等行业。即便是最不需要技术含量和外形要求的清洁工作,对个人品性的考察也非常严格,因为他们需要进入客户家中,养护一些贵重物品。

The 1000 people set by the mission were unemployed travellers, laid-off workers, veterans and ex-prisoners. Amongst these types of people, most of them don’t have any special skill other than the veterans. The appearance probably doesn’t meet the required standards too. Or else, they wouldn’t have been unable to find a job. In this era, one is very highly paid in the service industry. Most of them are concentrated in the food and beverage, entertainment, healthcare, cosmetic, and cleaning industry. Even if it was a cleaner job that doesn’t need much skills or a great appearance, it had strict requirements on one’s character. It was because they had to enter a client’s house and take care of some valuable objects.

    不过在此之前,他必须先有实体才行,不然单靠这支煞笔,也只有戳纸的份。

But before that, he needed to have a physical body first. The most he could do as an evil pen was sign on some papers.

    好在闻景戎没有继续约会其他男男女女,尚可也不再故意给他添乱,该冒字的时候就冒字,该吐墨的时候就吐墨。闲暇时便专心修炼,打算积攒力量来一次完美的梦中相会。

Fortunately, Wen Jingrong stopped dating other men and women. Shang Ke also stopped purposely creating trouble for Wen Jingrong. He wrote and spitted out ink when he was supposed to. He would focus on cultivating when he was free, intending to accumulate his power for a perfect meeting in the dream.

    第三次相会确实与众不同,因为尚可发现梦中的场景变了,从单调的虚空,变成了闻景戎的卧室……真是毫无创造性,好歹弄个什么空中堡垒、世外桃园、天上人间之类的啊。

The third meeting was indeed very different. Shang Ke noticed that the dream scenery has changed. It has changed from a monotonous void space into Wen Jingrong’s room… It’s so uncreative. He could have tried an air fortress, Shangri-La or heaven for example.

    尚可穿着一件宽松的衬衣,光着两条修长的腿,站在落地窗前,沐浴在阳光下。

Shang Ke was wearing a loose shirt while his two slender and long legs were bare. He stood in front of the french window and bathed in the sunlight.

    很显然,他现在的打扮来自于闻景戎的想象。

Obviously, his current way of dressing came from Wen Jingrong’s imagination.

    “你说的对,做梦确实需要技巧。”闻景戎略显愉悦的声音从身后传来。

“You’re right, dreaming does need skills.” Wen Jingrong’s satisfied voice sounded behind him.

    尚可缓缓转过身,第一次在闻景戎眼前清晰地露出真容。

Shang Ke turned around slowly. His appearance was clearly revealed to Wen Jingrong for the very first time.

    闻景戎在脑中想象过无数次,但只有真正见到,才知道自己的想象有多苍白。他见过美人无数,却没有一人能够像他这般触动他的心。那双清澈的眼眸,仿佛早已刻印在他的记忆深处,直到此时真正复苏。他的眉,他的眼,他的唇……他一切,似乎都是为他而生。

Wen Jingrong has imagined his appearance countless times in his mind. However, he only knew how much his imagination paled in comparison after seeing the real thing. He had seen countless amounts of beautiful people, yet none of them were able to move his heart as much as this person. Those clear eyes seemed to have long been engraved deep in his memories and only came to life now. His brows, eyes and lips… everything seem to be born for him.

    闻景戎的心无可抑制地跳动起来,几乎没有犹豫的,将他拉入自己怀中,低头吻住他的唇,不留一丝空隙。

Wen Jingrong’s heart beated uncontrollably. He pulled the person into his embrace almost without hesitation and lowered his head to kiss the person’s lips, leaving no gaps behind.

    梦中的场景总是发生得很快,尚可还没反应过来,便已经被压倒在床上。身上的衬衣凌乱不堪,男人急切地索取,具体动作仿佛被模糊处理,时断时续,但那种销魂的感觉却十分真切。

Everything in a dream always happens so fast. Shang Ke has yet to react when he was already pressed down on the bed, the shirt he was wearing in a mess. The man claimed him eagerly. The action seemed to be blurred out, sometimes stopping and sometimes continuing. However, the feeling of ecstasy was very real.

    不知道做了多久,直到尚可脱离梦境,灵体中还带着欢爱后的余韵。

Shang Ke didn’t know how long they did it. His soul still felt the aftertaste of love after he left the dream world.

    这发展是不是太快了?他甚至没上一句话,光顾着呻吟了!

Aren’t things developing too quickly? He didn’t even get to say anything. All he did was moan!

    尚可懵逼了一会,随后惊讶地发现自己在梦境之外竟然也能凝聚人形了。虽然还是灵体状态,但形体塑造非常完整,连男性特征都显露无遗。

Shang Ke was stunned. Soon afterwards, he was shocked to realise that he could actually condense to a human figure outside of the dream world too. He was still in his spiritual state, but the shaping was very complete, even the male features were revealed.

    这是怎么回事?虽然他现在可以相对自由地出入梦境,但每次都会消耗不少法力。这次不仅没有消耗,反而增加了不少。

What’s going on? Although he was now able to enter the dream world relatively freely, it consumes quite a bit of his power each time. This time round, not only did his powers not get consumed, it even increased significantly.

    正在思索间,闻景戎也从梦中醒来,脸上还带着没有消退的欲望,身体的反应更是表现直接。

As Shang Ke was pondering about it, Wen Jingrong also woke up from his dreams. His desire has yet to subside from his face and his bodily reaction was even more direct.

    他沉着脸走进浴室,随即便听到里面传来淅淅沥沥的水声和粗重的喘息。

He walked into the bathroom with an unhappy face. Immediately, the sound of splashing water and rough breaths could be heard.

    尚可:“……”

Shang Ke: “…”

    不用想也知道,对于一个精力旺盛的男人而言,小小春梦自然满足不了他空虚寂寞的身体。

Shang Ke didn’t need to guess to know. For a man full of vigour, a spring dream was naturally not enough to satisfy his lonely body.

    尚可思绪一顿,等等,煞气貌似也包括淫欲。这也解释了他的力量为什么会增加,因为他刚才在梦里吸收了淫欲衍生的煞气。

Shang Ke’s thoughts paused. Wait, negative energy seems to include lust. This explains why his power increased. Earlier in the dream, he had absorbed the negative energy arising from lust.

    让他苦恼的煞气来源,居然就这样被解决了?以后只要在梦里和他男人来一发,就不用担心法力耗竭了?

His distress for finding himself a source of negative energy is so easily settled? He wouldn’t have to worry about his powers being exhausted anymore if he has a round with his man in the dream?

    尚可有种哭笑不得的感觉,好好一支煞笔,以后恐怕只能做一支“欲笔”了。不过他对此倒是喜闻乐见,既能吃饱,又能享受,还不用为祸人间,生活简直不能更美满。

Shang Ke didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. He was a fine evil pen but he might turn into a “lust pen” in the future. However, this was still good news to him. He can have his fill and can also enjoy. He also didn’t need to trouble the human world. Life couldn’t be better.

    接下来的事情就简单了,尚可每隔三天会入梦一次。闻景戎也逐渐掌握春梦的精髓,场景变得越来越丰富,从卧房到浴室,从花园到泳池,从办公室到阳台,从汽车到飞机……天上地下,无所不在。只有想不到,没有做不到。

Things got simpler. Shang Ke would enter Wen Jingrong’s dream once every three days. Wen Jingrong gradually grasped the essence for having a spring dream and the scenery got more and more imaginative. From his room to the bathroom, from the garden to the pool, from the office to the terrace, from the car to the airplane… There was nowhere in the world they have never been to. There were only things you never imagined, never things you can’t do.

    然而,这个世界与伊维的魔法时代不同,在魔法的加成下,春梦能够让肉体也获得真实的满足。但闻景戎只有梦中的美好体验,回归现实后,身体却更加渴求。

However, this world was different from the magic age of Ivan’s world. With the addition of magic, spring dreams could let the physical body gain real satisfaction. In Wen Jingrong’s case however, he only has the wonderful experience in his dream. When he returns back to reality, his body’s craving increases.

    直到两个月后,原本每隔几天就会出现在梦中的人,突然不见踪影了。无论他用什么姿势睡觉,都没有再梦到过他。这让闻景戎暴躁不已,连带也把手下的人折腾得不行。

Two months later, the person who would appear in his dream every few days suddenly disappeared. No matter what posture he sleeps in, he never dreamed of him again. This made Wen Jingrong very irritable, causing his subordinates to suffer greatly.

    忍了两周后,闻景戎决定趁自己还没爆炸前,找个床伴泄泄火。以前他从没想过一夜情,但最近实在有些受不了了。

After bearing with it for two weeks, Wen Jingrong decided to find a bed partner to vent first before he exploded. He had never thought of finding a one night stand before, but he really couldn’t stand it anymore.

    无论他多么渴望得到梦中的人,那都只是一场梦。他不是没尝试过让人将他的模样画下来,暗中寻找。但找到的人,无论长相有几分相似,每每只要看上一眼便知道感觉不对。

No matter how much he desired the person in his dream, it was all just a dream. He had tried having someone draw Shang Ke’s appearance and secretly finding him. However, no matter how similar the people he found looked like Shang Ke, it only took one glance for Wen Jingrong to feel that something wasn’t right.

    正在开车的司机透过后视镜,见自己老板一脸阴郁地坐在后座,不由得嘀咕:这样子哪里像是去寻欢作乐,简直就是去砸场子的好吗?

The chauffeur who was driving saw his boss sitting with a gloomy face at the backseat through the rearview mirror. He couldn’t help but mutter to himself: In what way does he look like he’s going to have some fun? He clearly looks like he’s going to destroy the place.

    将车停在一家娱乐会所的门口,闻景戎走下车,正准备在侍者引领下走进会所,余光突然瞥见一个熟悉的身影出现在街对面。

The driver stopped the car outside the entrance of an entertainment club and Wen Jingrong got out of the car. He was about to enter the club under the attendant’s lead when he saw a familiar figure across the street.

    他心脏一紧,直接撇开使者,快步向那边追去。

His heart clenched. He directly bypassed the attendant and quickly chased towards that direction.

    那人走进地下通道,闻景戎毫不犹豫地跟了下去。

That person walked into the underpass and Wen Jingrong followed without any hesitation.

    无论闻景戎的速度有多快,两人始终保持着不远不近的距离。闻景戎跟着他穿过地下通道,走过几条街道,登上地铁,越过拥挤的人群,一步一步靠近。

No matter how fast Wen Jingrong was, there was always a distance between them. Wen Jingrong followed him through the underpass, past a few streets and boarded the train. Then, he squeezed through the crowd and got closer and closer to the person.

    青年站在吵闹的人群中,静静注视着窗外的风景,俊美的侧脸,散发着柔和的光芒,目光澄澈,气质清雅,给人一种宁静致远的感觉,与周围的喧嚣形成鲜明的对比。

The young man stood quietly amongst the noisy crowd and looked at the scenery outside the window. He had a handsome side face and was exuding a gentle radiance. He had clear eyes and a gentle disposition. He gave others a serene feeling, a sharp contrast to the rowdy crowd.

    闻景戎眼中燃起两簇炙热的火光,体内热血沸腾,手指因为兴奋而止不住的颤抖。

Two hot flames ignited in Wen Jingrong’s eyes. His blood rushed and his fingers trembled nonstop due to his excitement.

    直到地铁到站,眼见青年即将随着人流走出车厢,他才猛然惊觉自己应该做什么。

Only when the train stopped and the young man exited the train with the crowd did Wen Jingrong realise what he should do.

    抓住他,带走他,不计代价地将他占为己有!

Catch him, take him home and make him mine at all cost!

    然而,当他追出车厢,却发现那人已经不见踪影。他疯狂搜寻,依然一无所获。

However, that person could no longer be seen when Wen Jingrong chased after him out of the train. Wen Jingrong searched crazily but found nothing.

    “可恶!”闻景戎握紧拳头,重重砸在墙上,眼中难掩愤怒。

“Damn it!” Wen Jingrong clenched his fist and punched the wall hard. The anger in his eyes was hard to conceal. 

    好半晌,他才平复心绪。

He calmed down only after a long while.

    没关系,只要确定他是真实存在的,他就一定能够找到他!

It’s okay. As long as it’s certain that he truly exists, he can definitely find him!

    打定主意,闻景戎正准备回去,却发现自己的钱包不见了。他只好拿出手机,叫司机过来接他。

After making up his mind, Wen Jingrong prepared to head home. However, he realised that his wallet was gone. He could only take out his phone to call the chauffeur to pick him up.

    雕塑一般直挺挺地站在路口,闻景戎丝毫不在乎自己成为众人瞩目的焦点。

Wen Jingrong stood upright at the side of the road looking like a sculpture, not caring that he had become the focus of the crowd.

    尚可化作虚影飘在他身边,幸灾乐祸地想:你就等着吧,现在正是下班高峰期,路上堵得连条狗都过不去,司机没有一两小时,肯定来不了。

Shang Ke turned into a spirit and floated by his side. He thought gloatingly: Have fun waiting. Right now it’s rush hour and the roads are so jammed even a dog can’t pass through. The chauffeur won’t be here without taking a few hours.

    尚可在一天前,发现自己已经可以凝聚实体,从笔灵正式进化为笔妖,能够在一定时间内以人类的模样现身。虽然不能距离闻景戎太远,但几千米范围内还是没问题的。

One day ago, Shang Ke realised that he can already condense into a physical body. He evolved from a pen spirit to a demonic pen and could appear in human form for a period of time. Although he couldn’t be too far away from Wen Jingrong, a few kilometers radius was still possible.

    原本想给这个男人一个惊喜,结果他竟然想去找床伴!真是岂有此理!

He had wanted to give this man a surprise, but he actually went to find a bed partner! How could he do that!

    于是,尚可故意把他引出来,又藏起他的钱包,就是想整整他。

Therefore, Shang Ke purposely lured him out and also hid his wallet to punish him.

    不过尚可的计划很快就落空了,闻景戎在等了十几分钟后,又给附近分公司的负责人打了电话。不过几分钟,迎驾的坐骑飞快飙至,舒舒服服地将总裁大人给接走了。

However, Shang Ke’s plan failed very quickly. After waiting for 10+ minutes, Wen Jingrong called the person in charge of the nearby branch office. After a few minutes, a mount sped here and the great president was picked up comfortably.

    尚可忿忿不已,再次决定推迟他们见面的时间。正好他还要搜集一些职业信息,为解决就业问题做准备。

Shang Ke felt very indignant and once again decided to push back the time they would meet. It just so happens that he still needs to search for some job information so as to prepare for solving the reemployment issues.
