Chapter 147: I Am An Evil Pen (IV)


TL: Resonance

    “闻总,泰森饰材的前职工在工地中闹事,我们是否需要请相关部门出面调停一下?”秘书问道。

“President Wen, former workers of Tyson Materials are making trouble at the construction site. Should we find the related departments to come out and mediate?” The secretary asked.

    “泰森饰材?”闻景戎头也没抬地说道,“上月刚刚收购的那家工厂?不是已经给那些职工发了一笔不菲的遣散费吗?”

“Tyson Materials?” Wen Jingrong replied without raising his head, “The factory that was bought last month? Didn’t we already give those workers a large sum of severance pay?”

    “泰森饰材的职工大多是七、八年以上的老职工。失去这份工作,他们恐怕……”

“The workers of Tyson Materials are mostly old employees of more than seven or eight years. After losing this job, I’m afraid they…”

    “闻尚集团不是收容所,没义务帮他们安排后路。”闻景戎漠然打断,“所有老旧工厂都将重新整合,一步步实现智能化,裁减多余的劳动力是必然趋势。你给方局打个电话,让他帮忙处理一下。”

“Wen Shang group isn’t a shelter, it has no obligation to help them rearrange a job.” Wen Jingrong interrupted indifferently, “All the old factories are to be reintegrated and reach automation step by step. Reducing unnecessary labour force is an inevitable trend. Give Fang Ju a call and ask him to help settle this.” 

    闻景戎对于落后的技术项目,从来都是大刀阔斧的改革。只要定下决策,就不会瞻前顾后。

Wen Jingrong has always made bold and decisive reforms when dealing with projects with backward technology. Once he made his decision, he wouldn’t hesitate.

    “好的,属下这就去安排。”秘书退出办公室。

“Okay, I will go arrange it.” The secretary left the office. 

    尚可化作虚影,脱离笔身,也跟着秘书飘了出去。

Shang Ke turned into a spirit and followed the secretary out after separating from his pen body.

    他之前看过泰森的整改计划,闻景戎收购泰森饰材,直接裁员两百多人,虽然支付了一年的薪水,但那些职工没有一技之长,而且年龄偏大,在这个技术全面升级的时代,体力劳动者们就业非常困难。

He had seen Tyson’s rectification plan before. After buying Tyson Materials, Wen Jingrong directly laid off more than 200 people. He had paid them one year worth of salary, but these workers don’t have a professional skill set. They were also of older age. In this age of technology advancement, it is very difficult for physical workers to be employed.

    尚可想去摸个底,以便制定解决方案。尽管他现在还不知道如何为别人的就业问题而英勇赴死,但至少先完成任务目标再说。

Shang Ke wants to find out more of the actual situation so that he can better come up with a solution. Although he still didn’t know how he could die a heroic death for someone else’s employment issue, he should at least complete his mission first.

    泰森的工厂距离市区大约十几公里,为了去查探情况,尚可悄悄将自己的“身体”给带上了。如果笔身在契约人手上,他就只能在三千米范围内活动。离开契约人,就不受限制了。但他只有在契约人身边才能吸收煞气,其他人的煞气,全被屏蔽在契约界限之外,完全触及不到。

Tyson’s factory was more than ten kilometers away from the urban district. For the sake of checking out the situation, Shang Ke secretly brought his “body” along. If his pen body was in the contractor’s hands, he could only move about within a three kilometer radius. There won’t be any limits if he leaves his contractor. However, he could only absorb negative energy when he is by the contractor’s side. Other people’s negative energy are all blocked out by the boundary of the contract and completely out of reach.

    尚可来到泰森的工厂时,看到上百人堵在门口,不让闻尚的技术人员进入。双方吵闹不休,场面混乱。不多时,一辆汽车在门口停下,随后走出一名大腹便便的中年男子,他带着几名制服男子大摇大摆地走进人群。

When Shang Ke arrived at Tyson factory, he saw hundreds of people blocking the entrance, not allowing any of Wen Shang’s technical staff to enter. Both parties were arguing nonstop and the scene was chaotic. Soon after, a car stopped at the entrance and a middle aged man with a beer belly stepped out of the car. He brought along a few men in uniform and walked into the crowd ostentatiously. 

    尚可猜测这人应该就是闻景戎口中的方局。他不来还好,一来就让原本激愤的职工更加激愤,不过片刻,便从文斗直接演变成武斗。

Shang Ke guessed that this person should be the ‘Fang Ju’ Wen Jingrong mentioned. It would have been better if he didn’t come. The moment he came, the employers who were already angry became even angrier. It didn’t take long for the verbal contest to turn into a martial arts contest.

    尚可发誓,他们的争斗绝对不是因为自己这支煞笔的出现,至少他自己是这么认为的。尚可站在角落,安静地挥发着身上翻滚的煞气……

Shang Ke can vouch that their battle was definitely not due to the appearance of himself, the evil pen. That’s what he thinks so at least. Shang Ke stood at one corner and quietly circulated the negative energy that was flowing on his body… 

    “闻总,泰森那边出事了。”秘书匆匆走进办公,报告道,“刚才接到消息,方局被打伤了。”

“President Wen, there is an incident at Tyson.” The secretary hurried into the office and reported, “I’ve just received the information. Fang Ju is injured.”

    闻景戎皱起眉头,面色微沉地吩咐道:“将监控打开,我需要了解具体情况。”

Wen Jingrong furrowed his brows and ordered with a heavy expression, “Turn on the surveillance recording. I need to understand the situation.”

    秘书连忙将工厂的视频图像调出来。

The secretary immediately showed the video of the factory.

    闻景戎面无表情地观看着,视频播到一半时,他突然按下暂停键,目光紧紧锁定角落那个身影。

Wen Jingrong watched the video without any expression. When the video was halfway through, he suddenly pressed pause and stared intently at the figure at one corner.

    随即,他倏地站起身:“走,去现场看看。”

He stood up immediately and said, “Let’s go take a look on site.” 

    秘书眼中闪过一丝诧异,但还是反应迅速地通知司机和保镖。

A hint of surprise flashed past the secretary’s eyes, but he quickly reacted and notified the chauffeur and bodyguard.

    闻景戎坐在车内,目不转睛地盯着视频画面,确切地说,是盯着画面中那个正在旁观的青年。

Wen Jingrong sat in the car and stared intently at the video screen. To be more exact, he was staring at the young man who was spectating.

    自从那天在娱乐会所附近遇到他后,闻景戎便派出大量人手去调查他的身份。然而好几天过去,始终没有结果,对方就像凭空消失一般,完全无迹可寻。

Ever since meeting him near the entertainment club that day, Wen Jingrong has sent out large amounts of manpower to investigate his identity. However, many days have passed and there still haven’t been any results. That person seemed like he had disappeared into thin air and no trace of him could be found.

    就在他快要失去耐心时,却在这个监控中看到了他。他与泰森有什么关系?是原本的职工还是职工家属?

Just when Wen Jingrong was about to lose his patience, he saw him on this surveillance. What is his relation with Tyson? Was he a past worker or a family member of a worker?

    闻景戎调出泰森的所有裁员名单,并没有在其中找到他的资料。如此看来,他可能是某位职工的家属?

Wen Jingrong looked through the namelist of all the laid off workers of Tyson but didn’t find his information within. If that’s the case, perhaps he is a family member of one of the workers?

    “现在泰森那边由谁负责?”闻景戎突然开口问道。

“Who’s in charge of Tyson right now?” Wen Jingrong suddenly asked.

    秘书回答:“是高鸿高经理。”

The secretary answered, “It is manager Gao Hong.”

    “给他打电话,让他暗中派人看好这个青年,并保护好他的安全。”闻景戎指的是自然是尚可。

“Give him a call. Ask him to send someone to secretly keep watch of this young man and protect him.” The person that Wen Jingrong was referring to was naturally Shang Ke.

    “好的。”秘书好奇地打量画面中的尚可几眼,随即按照吩咐拨通了高经理的电话。

“Okay.” The secretary gave Shang Ke who was on the screen a few curious glances and immediately called manager Gao as instructed.

    尚可并不知道自己已经被某人发现,仍然在现场观看情况。

Shang Ke doesn’t know that he was already noticed by somebody and was still watching the situation on site.

    正在这时,混战的人群中突然发出一声惊呼,随即就见他们逐渐停下打斗,目光全部朝某个方向汇聚过去。

At this moment, the crowd which was scuffling about suddenly exclaimed. Immediately afterwards, they gradually stop their fighting and their sight focuses in one particular direction.

    尚可感觉一股熟悉的气息正在向他逼近,转头望去,赫然见到气势凌然的闻景戎径直朝他走来。

Shang Ke felt a familiar scent approaching him. He turned around to look and was surprised to see the imposing Wen Jingrong walking straight towards him.

    咦?他怎么会在这里?

What? Why is he here?

    闻景戎无视众人敬畏而惊疑的目光,走到距离尚可不过一臂之遥的位置停住脚步,然后抬头对众人说道:“我是闻尚集团的总裁闻景戎,你们的情况我已经了解。工厂智能化势在必行,裁员也是顺势而为。至于你们,我另有安排。大家稍安勿躁,先回去等消息。受伤的人待会去找高经理报备一下,你们的医药费由我们全权负责。”

Wen Jingrong ignored the people’s reverent and surprised gaze as he walked and stood at a spot one arm away from Shang Ke. Then, he looked up and said to the crowd, “I’m Wen Jingrong, the president of the Wen Shang group. I’ve already understood your situation. It is imperative that the factory gets automated and laying off workers goes along with it. I have other arrangements for all of you. Everyone, stay calm and wait for further information. For the people who are injured, report to manager Gao later. We will take full responsibility for your medical expenses.

    众人闻言,脸上无不闪过惊喜之色,随即纷纷询问闻景戎打算怎么安排。

Everyone looked pleasantly surprised when they heard his words. They immediately started asking about how Wen Jingrong was going to arrange them. 

    “具体安排,等我们商量之后,自会通知你们。”闻景戎目光凌厉,语气不容置疑。

“Once we finish with our discussion, will we notify all of you of the detailed arrangements.” Wen Jingrong’s eyes were sharp and his tone did not allow for any questions.

    众人在他的注视下,下意识别过头,不敢再继续纠缠。毕竟闻景戎的身份摆在那里,总不会在这么多人面前出尔反尔。

The people looked away unconsciously under his gaze and didn’t dare to pester anymore. Afterall, Wen Jingrong’s identity is known to all, it’s unlikely for him to go back on his word in front of so many people.

    尚可有点不敢相信,自己还没开始行动,就差不多解决两百个就业名额了?虽然真正动手的人是闻景戎。

Shang Ke found it somewhat hard to believe. He had yet to make his move and he already settled around 200 people’s employment issue? Though the real person who made the move was Wen Jingrong.

    见事情解决,闻景戎拉住尚可的手,一句“跟我走”,便不容拒绝地将他拉上自己的座驾。至于秘书,则被他打发到保镖的车上去了。

Seeing that the situation had been settled, Wen Jingrong held Shang Ke’s hand and said “come with me” before pulling Shang Ke to his car, not accepting any rejections. The secretary has already been sent to the bodyguard’s car by him.

    吩咐司机开车后,闻景戎极力抑制心中的激动,开口问道:“你的名字。”

After ordering the chauffeur to drive, Wen Jingrong made an utmost effort to suppress the excitement in his heart before he asked, “Your name?”

    尽管他们在梦中已经做过很多次,但他一直没能问道他的名字。

Wen Jingrong had never got the chance to ask for his name despite them doing so many times in his dream.

    “尚可。”尚可微微皱起眉头,不知是否是距离太近的原因,闻景戎身上的福光让他感觉非常难受。他凝聚的身体,在闻景戎的气息笼罩下,如同被针扎一般。

“Shang Ke.” Shang Ke furrowed his brows slightly. Perhaps they were too close, the blessing on Wen Jingrong’s body  is making him feel very uncomfortable. The body he had condensed into felt like it was being pricked by needles when he was near Wen Jingrong.

    奇怪,平时以袖扣形态挂在闻景戎身上时,从来没产生过这种尖锐的刺痛感。

How strange. He had never felt this sharp stabbing sensation before when he was hanging on Wen Jingrong’s body as a cufflink.

    尚可下意识拉开两人的距离,避开肢体接触后,疼痛感果然缓和许多。

Shang Ke pulled their distance apart unconsciously. That painful feeling lessened greatly after avoiding physical contact.

    闻景戎目色一暗,对他的疏离感到异常不快。他们在梦中曾是那样的亲密,他甚至记得他身体的每一个部分,但现实中,他完全不认识自己,甚至还有些抵触。

Wen Jingrong’s eyes darkened. He felt very unhappy by Shang Ke’s distancing. They had been so intimate in his dream, he even remembered every part of Shang Ke’s body. But in reality, he didn’t remember him and seemed to have a bit of rejection.

    闻景戎抿了抿嘴,又问道:“刚才那些职工中,有你的亲人?”

Wen Jingrong pursed his lips and asked, “Was there a relative of yours amongst the workers just now?”

    “不,只是有几个相熟的长辈而已。”尚可目前就是一个黑户,自然什么都不能说。

“No. There were only a few familiar seniors.” Shang Ke wasn’t a registered person so he naturally couldn’t say anything.

    “我会给那些人安排工作,只要你跟我走。”闻景戎看得出尚可对那些人很关注,所以才会直接抛出这个条件。

“I will arrange a job for those people as long as you follow me.” Wen Jingrong could tell that Shang Ke was very concerned for those people, that’s why he directly threw out this condition.

    尚可瞥了他一眼,第一次正式见面就给他上套?某人做事真是越来越有效率了。

Shang Ke gave him a glance. They met officially for the first time and he’s already trying to trap me? Someone is getting better at doing things.

    “跟你走?去哪里?”尚可不动声色地问。

“Follow you? To where?” Shang Ke asked calmly.

    “和我一起住。”闻景戎回答得简单明了。

“Stay with me.” Wen Jingrong’s answer was simple and clear.

    “……我们以前好像并不认识?”尚可真没想到他竟然会这么直接。对一个“陌生人”,随便提出同居的邀请真的好吗?

“…We don’t seem to know each other?” Shang Ke truly didn’t expect that he would be so direct. Is it a good idea to casually invite a “stranger” to cohabitate?

    “现在认识了。”闻景戎毫不掩饰眼中的意图,灼人的视线掠过他的眉眼,落在他饱满水润的红唇上,想起自己曾经如何深入地品尝它的味道,如何让它变得更加艳丽……体内飞快窜起一团火焰,全身的血液都沸腾起来。

“We know each other now.” Wen Jingrong didn’t hide the intention shown in his eyes. His fervent gaze went past Shang Ke’s eyes and landed on his plump red lips. He remembered how he had deeply tasted it before and how to make it look even more beautiful… A fire quickly ignited within him and his blood started rushing.

    寻觅了许久的梦中人,如今真的出现在他面前,他根本无法控制想要占有他的欲望。

He had been searching for the person in his dream for so long. Now that the person has finally appeared before him, Wen Jingrong couldn’t control his desire to possess him at all.

    在男人越来越露骨的注视下,尚可只觉得一股电流袭遍全身,苏得他全身松软,好不容易才抗住攻势,他严肃地表明他威武不能屈、诱惑不能淫的决心:“抱歉,我恐怕……”

Under that man’s increasingly undisguised gaze, Shang Ke only felt like current was coursing through his body, causing his whole body to soften. Although hard, he ultimately resisted it. He solemnly expressed his determination, which mustn’t bow down to might or lose to temptation, saying, “I’m sorry. I’m afraid I…”

    拒绝的话还没说完,闻景戎便打断道:“我直说吧,我对你一见钟情,希望能和你有进一步发展,同居是培养感情的第一步,无论你愿意与否,我都会将你拉进我的生活。”

Shang Ke’s rejecting words has yet to finish when he was interrupted by Wen Jingrong, “I’ll be frank. I fell in love with you at first sight and wish to have further developments with you. Cohabitating is the first step in developing our relationship. I will pull you into my life regardless whether you’re willing or not.”

    这绝对是尚可听过的最欠揍的告白……若非深知他对自己的执着,光凭上面这句话就足以让他将他打入冷宫了。

This is the most annoying confession Shang Ke has ever heard in his life… If Shang Ke didn’t know how persistent Wen Jingrong had been for him, just that sentence alone was enough for Shang Ke to throw him into the cold palace.

    先不说他现在是一只见不得光的笔妖,即便真的是人类,也不可能在刚认识不到五分钟的时候就答应这种要求。这家伙的情商被狗吃了吗?敢不敢走一次含蓄婉约的路线?

Let’s not mention that he is currently a demonic pen that cannot be known. Even if he was a human, there was no way he could agree to such a request when it had only been five minutes he got to know Wen Jingrong. Did this fellow’s EQ get eaten by a dog? Can’t he take a more reserved and graceful route for once?

    “闻总,你节奏略快,我有点跟不上。”尚可并不着急,反正只要biu地一下,他就会重新变成一支低调而优雅的煞笔。

“President Wen, you’re going too fast, I can’t keep up.” Shang Ke wasn’t in a hurry. In any case, he can become a low key and elegant evil pen again in just a second.

    “没关系,我会带着你。”闻景戎一只手臂横过他的后腰,仿佛演练过许多遍一般,很自然地将他揽入怀中。

“It’s okay, I will guide you.” Wen Jingrong’s arm went behind him and held his waist. Wen Jingrong took him very naturally into his embrace, as if having done it numerous times.

    手臂刚刚碰到尚可的身体,那种针扎般的刺痛感又一次出现。尚可一个激灵,猛然向后退开,挣脱他的怀抱。

His arm had just touched Shang Ke’s body when that needle pricking pain appeared once again. Shang Ke got a shock and suddenly retreated backwards, breaking free from Wen Jingrong’s embrace.

    闻景戎眼神晦暗,见他如此抗拒自己,一股难以抑制的怒火袭上心头。任何人的拒绝,他都可以不在乎,唯独眼前这个人不行!

Wen Jingrong’s eyes darkened. Seeing Shang Ke rejecting him so much, anger that was hard to suppress emerged in his heart. He doesn’t care if everybody else rejects him. Only the person before him couldn’t!

    他的气息,他的触感,他的味道,已经融入他的灵魂,成为他戒不掉的毒瘾。

His breath, feel and scent has all been assimilated into Wen Jingrong’s soul, becoming a drug addiction Wen Jingrong couldn’t quit.

    闻景戎一把将他压在车门上,俯身吻住他,几乎是贪婪地啃咬他的唇。

Wen Jingrong pressed him against the car door and lowered his body to kiss him, greedily biting his lips.

    尚可被挤在狭窄的空间,屈起的双腿,被一具火热的身体强行撑开。

Shang Ke was trapped in a narrow space, his bended legs forced open by a hot body.

    闻景戎如野兽般的目光直直望进他的眼睛,下身与他紧贴在一起,可以清晰地感受到欲望的形状,炽热的温度,透过布料,灼烧着尚可内侧的肌肤。

Wen Jingrong stared into Shang Ke’s eyes with a beast-like gaze. He lowered his body and stuck closely to Shang Ke. Shang Ke could clearly feel the shape of his desire. The burning heat went through the fabric and burned Shang Ke’s skin.

    尚可此时却没有干柴烈火的兴致,闻景戎身上的福光,如同利刃般,一刀刀地切割着他的身体。

However, Shang Ke wasn’t in the mood to enjoy. The blessing on Wen Jingrong’s body cut his body slice by slice like a blade.

    尚可脸上露出痛苦之色,手臂一横,挡开身上的男人,同时抬腿朝他的肚腹踢去。

Pain could be seen on Shang Ke’s face. He straightened his arms and blocked the man above him. At the same time, Shang Ke lifted his leg and kicked towards his belly.

    闻景戎握住他的脚腕,往后一拉。尚可的身体猛地下滑,横躺着座椅上,双腿则被分跨在闻景戎的腰侧。

Wen Jingrong held Shang Ke’s ankle and pulled Shang Ke towards himself. Shang Ke’s body slid downwards and he was lying horizontally on the seat. His legs were spreaded apart and held onto Wen Jingrong’s waist.

    闻景戎见到身下青年衣衫凌乱的模样,脑中浮现他们在车里做爱的画面。梦中的场景与眼前的一切重合,不同的是,梦中他与他极尽缠绵,而真实的他,却如此抗拒他的亲近。青年脸上惊惧的表情,让他感觉心脏阵阵抽动,仿佛被自己呵护的宝贝视作了敌人。

Wen Jingrong saw the messy look of the young man below him and images of them doing it in the car appeared in Wen Jingrong’s head. The scene in his dream aligned with what was happening before him. What’s different however was that the Shang Ke in his dream was extremely attached to him, but the Shang Ke in reality is so rejecting of his intimacy. The young man’s horrified expression caused aching pain in his heart as if he was treated like an enemy by the precious darling he cared so much for.

    闻景戎竭力压制心中不断涌现的狂躁,他闭了闭眼,待再次睁开时,眼中又恢复了以往的深沉。

Wen Jingrong tried his best to suppress the madness that kept surfacing in his heart and closed his eyes. When he opened them once again, his usual deep eyes returned.

    他将尚可抱起来,伸手帮他整了整散乱的衣物,低声道:“和我回家。”

He held Shang Ke up and helped tidy up his messy shirt. Then, he said softly, “Come home with me.”

    语气虽然温柔,却带着不容拒绝的强势。

Although the tone was gentle, it did not allow for any rejection.

    尚可望着眼前这个男人,隐约有些明白了,这个世界的难度不在任务,而在闻景戎。以前他可以用自己的包容、爱意和热辣的身体抚慰他潜藏的暴虐,如今的他,却只能将他拒之门外。

Shang Ke looked at the man before him and vaguely understood. The difficulty of this world didn’t lie on the mission, but on Wen Jingrong. Previously, Shang Ke could use his tolerance, love and hot body to placate the man’s hidden tyranny. However, he can only reject him now. 

    闻景戎身上的福光,不仅会让他痛苦,而且还能燃烧他的生命。闻景戎靠得越近,他的生命力就消耗得越快。

Not only does the blessing on Wen Jingrong’s body bring him pain, it also burns up his life. The closer Wen Jingrong is, the faster his life is consumed.

    他可以死于任何场合、任何形式、任何意外,唯独不能死在这个男人手上,让他背负害死他的罪恶感。

He can die in any situation, form or accident, but he must not die in this man’s hands and let him carry the guilt of killing him.
