Chapter 152: I Am An Evil Pen (IX)


TL: Resonance

    “雄哥,我只是让你烧一座空厂房,你怎么给我弄出人命来了?”柏霖看着正在电视上播放的新闻,脸色难看地对着电话怒问。

“Brother Xiong, I only asked you to burn an empty dormitory. Why did you cause deaths?” Bai Ling asked angrily with an ugly expression over the phone as he watched the news playing on the TV.

    “我可不知道那个厂房里有人,不过才死了两个没什么身份背景的小人物,你不用这么紧张。”

“I don’t know which dormitory is occupied. It’s only two insignificant people with no background who died. You don’t have to be so nervous.”

    “小人物?”柏霖气急败坏吼道,“你没看到闻景戎也差点被烧死吗?而且你居然用‘黑燃液’作助燃物,那可是违禁品,查出来肯定要坐牢的!”

“Insignificant people?” Bai Lin roared in exasperation, “Didn’t you see that Wen Jingrong was also close to being burnt to death? And you actually used the ‘black liquid’ as the fuel. That’s an illegal item. You will definitely be jailed if they find out!”

    电话那头的雄哥满不在乎地说道:“没办法,闻景戎那座厂房用的全是防火材料,想将它烧毁不得不采取非常手段,我这也是为了完成你交代的任务,你可不能把责任都推给我。”

Brother Xiong who was over the phone replied without a care, “I had no choice. Wen Jingrong’s workshop was built using fire-retardant materials. If we wish to burn it, I have no choice but to use extreme methods. I did that to fulfill the task you assigned me to, you can’t push all the responsibility to me.”

    “难道是我叫你使用黑燃液,是我叫你把人烧死的吗?”柏霖此刻有种被人坑死的感觉。

“Was it me who asked you to use the black liquid? Was it me who asked you to burn people to death?” Bai Lin currently felt like he had been pitted by someone.

    “呵呵,你让我放火的电话,我可是录了音的,无论出了什么事,你都得和我一起担着。”

“Haha, I recorded the conversation of you asking me to set fire. No matter what happens, you have to bear it with me.”

    柏霖气得脸色涨红,好半晌才冰冷地问:“你一开始就在算计我?”

Bai Lin’s face was red from anger. He asked coldly after a good while, “Have you been plotting against me since the beginning?”

    “说什么算计?我为了你,可是什么都愿意做。”雄哥发出低笑,“我们现在是一条船上的蚂蚱,应该相互合作,今晚10点,到富维酒店711来找我,我们好好商量一下接下来的应对措施。”

“What do you mean by plotting? I’m willing to do anything for your sake.” Brother Xiong chuckled, “We are both on the same boat, we should be cooperating with each other. Come find me at Fuwei Hotel, room 711, tonight at 10pm. Let’s discuss our next steps.”

    柏霖举着手机,直到里面传来忙音,依然没有从惊惧中回过神来……

Bai Lin held on to his phone. He didn’t recover from his fear even when the busy signal sounded through the phone… 

    别墅中,闻景戎靠在床头,盯着手上的煞笔发呆。他经历过不少风浪,但从没遇到过这种超出认知的事情。他的恋人变成了一支笔,这支笔还是他父亲留给他的遗物,被他天天挂在身上。

In the villa, Wen Jingrong leaned against the headboard and stared at the pen in his hand in a daze. Wen Jingrong has experienced a lot, but he has never come across something like this that was beyond his understanding. His lover has turned into a pen, and the pen was also a relic his father left him with and was worn on him everyday.

    也就是说,他这段时间一直是在和一支笔谈恋爱,和一支笔滚床单,吃一支笔做的饭,陪一支笔畅想未来?

Which means that during this period of time, he has been dating a pen, having sex with a pen, eating food made by a pen and thinking about the future with a pen?

    难怪他查不到可可的背景,原来他根本不是人类!

No wonder he couldn’t find anything about Keke. It turns out he wasn’t a human!

    【他是你的东西,不会丢下你跑掉的。】

【He is your thing, he won’t abandon you and run away.】

    脑中突然浮现尚可不久前说过的话,那时还不明白,如今才知道其中的真意。

The words that Shang Ke had said not long ago suddenly came to his mind. He didn’t understand it then and only knew the true meaning of those words now.

    闻景戎轻轻摩挲着已经失去光泽的笔身,心里很清楚,比起发现尚可是笔妖的震撼,他更害怕失去他。

Wen Jingrong gently stroked the pen that had already lost its lustre. He was very clear in his mind. Compared to the shock of realising that Shang Ke was a demonic pen, he was more afraid of losing Shang Ke.

    从那场大火中逃出来,他身上仅仅受了一点轻伤,连消防都感到不可思议。那时他才意识到,尚可用自己的力量保护了他,而他却因为力量耗损而消失了。若非迫不得已,他又怎么会在他眼前现出原形?

He only had slight injuries when he escaped from that huge fire. Even the firefighters found it unconceivable. It was only then he came to an awareness. Shang Ke had used his powers to protect him, and disappeared because he used too much power. Shang Ke had revealed his true form before him because he had no choice.

    或许他不该冲进去,正因为他的出现,尚可才不得不为了保护他而过度使用力量。

Maybe he shouldn’t have rushed in. Shang Ke had to overuse his powers to protect him because of his appearance.

    即使他对笔妖这种生物一无所知,但看到他失去光泽的样子,也大概能猜到他的情况不妙。

Although he had no knowledge about a being such as a demonic pen, he can guess that Shang Ke’s circumstance isn’t good judging by how much lustre he lost.

    “可可,我应该为你做些什么?”闻景戎黯然低语。

“Keke, what should I do to help you?” Wen Jingrong murmured.

    正在这时,身边的手机响起,闻景戎随手点开,里面传来秘书的声音:“闻总,新闻媒体那边,属下已经交给公关处理妥当,剩下的就是等警方的调查结果。”

At this moment, his phone at the side sounded. Wen Jingrong tapped on his phone and heard his secretary’s voice message, “President Wen, the news media side has been settled by the public relations department. All that’s left is to wait for the investigation result from the police.”

    闻景戎闻言,眼中闪过一抹寒光。此次事件明显是有人蓄意为之,但奇怪的是,对方为什么要费尽心思烧毁一座还没有正式启用的作坊?甚至使用了国家明令禁止的黑燃液。损失一座厂房,对闻景戎而言根本无关痛痒,既不能让他损失多少利益,又无法毁坏他的声誉。相反,他冲进火场救人的行为,还大大提升他的公众形象。

A cold glint flashed past Wen Jingrong eyes when he heard that. The incident this time is obviously set up by someone. However, it was strange. Why did the person spend so much effort to burn a workshop that has yet to officially open? They even use the black liquid that is prohibited by the country. Losing a dormitory building doesn’t affect Wen Jingrong in any way. It could neither cause much profit loss nor was it able to tarnish his reputation. On the contrary, his action of rushing into the fire to save someone has greatly improved his public image.

    难道这件事只是某些无良分子为了报复社会而犯下的罪行?但他们手上怎么会有黑燃液?这种东西在黑市的价格被炒得很高,买得起黑燃液的人,至少在金钱上没什么压力。这种人报复社会的几率有多高?

Don’t tell me this was just a crime committed by unscrupulous people who wish to have revenge on society? But why would they have the black liquid? In the black market, this kind of thing is marked up to a very high price. People who can afford black liquid wouldn’t have financial issues at the very least. What are the chances of these kinds of people wanting to have revenge on society?

    想了许久想不出头绪,闻景戎暂时只能吩咐秘书密切关注警方的调查结果,随时向他汇报。他这几天不打算出门,以防被媒体纠缠。

Wen Jingrong couldn’t figure it out even after thinking about it for a long time. For now, he can only instruct his secretary to pay close attention to the police’s investigation result and report to him when necessary. He didn’t intend to go out these few days to avoid being bothered by the reporters.

    这场火灾有两人丧命,外界很多人以为其中一个就是尚可,毕竟他第三次冲进去后便再也没有出来。网上到处都是他救人的视频,那道穿梭于烈火的绝美身影,让无数人为之惊赞。

There were two casualties due to this fire. Many people thought that one of them is Shang Ke. After all, he never came out again after rushing in for the third time. The videos of him saving the people are all over the internet. Countless people were amazed by the beautiful figure travelling through the fire.

    闻景戎也来回看了许多遍,每看一次便心疼一分。

Wen Jingrong also looked at the videos many times. His heart hurts each time he watches.

    闻景戎将魔数笔放在枕头上,然后打开笔记本,打算查阅一下公司文件。但随即又觉得不放心,重新拿起魔数笔,将他放在自己胸前的口袋里。

Wen Jingrong placed the magic pen on the pillow. Then, he switched on his laptop intending to check his work documents. However, he couldn’t help but feel worried again. He took up the magic pen once again and put it in his chest pocket.

    看了一会电脑,又把魔数笔调了一个方向,然后点开一部动画,缩小放在屏幕一角,在动画华丽的音效中,继续浏览文件。

After using the laptop for a while, Wen Jingrong adjusted the magic pen towards a direction. He then played an animation, reduced the size of the video and placed it at one corner of the screen. He continued looking through his files in the midst of the animation sound effects.

    不过十分钟,他又觉得哪里不对,拿起魔数笔,上下看了看,问道:“可可,你的头到底在哪里?我播放的动画你看得到吗?”

Barely ten minutes later, he found something wrong again. He took out the magic pen and looked at it from top to bottom. Then, he asked, “Keke, where exactly is your head? Can you see the animation I’m playing?”

    尚可:……无力吐槽。

Shang Ke: … No energy to curse.

    魔数笔的笔身是尚可的保护壳,只要待在笔中,就不用担心被闻景戎的福光所伤害。但同样的,他也吸收不到煞气,力量难以恢复。

The pen body of the magic pen was Shang Ke’s protective shell. As long as he stayed within the pen, he didn’t have to worry about being hurt by Wen Jingrong’s blessing. Similarly however, he couldn’t absorb any negative energy. So, it was difficult for him to recover his powers. 

    以他目前的状况,甚至无法进入闻景戎的梦中。只能期待他自己黑化,憋出一点煞气修复他的身体。

He can’t even enter Wen Jingrong’s dream in his current condition. He can only wait for Wen Jingrong to blacken and squeeze out some negative energy for him to recover his body.

    不过闻景戎的心理素质太好,发现自己的恋人是一支煞笔竟然一点都不害怕,甚至还接受良好。他的三观是不是哪里出问题了!

However, Wen Jingrong’s psychological qualities are too good. He wasn’t afraid at all when he found out that his lover is a demonic pen. He even accepted the fact pretty well. Is there something wrong with his three views!

    闻景戎上网查询了有关精怪的资料,内容五花八门,真假难辨,于是他发了一个求助帖:我的恋人是一只笔妖,现在身受重伤,无法变成人形,应该如何帮他恢复?

Wen Jingrong went online to find out information about demons. There was information of all kinds and it was hard to differentiate the true and fake ones. Hence, he made a post requesting for help: My lover is a demonic pen. Currently, he is heavily injured and can’t transform into a human. How should I help him recover?

    不过几分钟,他便收到了不少回复。

He received quite a number of replies after a few minutes.

    【楼主傻逼,世上怎么可能会有笔妖?你让我等修炼千年的狐妖、兔妖、花妖情何以堪?】

【The poster is stupid. How can there be any demonic pen in the world? How can I, who is waiting for demonic[1] fox, demonic rabbit or demonic flower that have cultivated for a thousand year accept this?】

    【楼上才傻逼,谁说世上没有笔妖?我家还有一只盆妖呢,每天帮我种花养草,不要太贴心!】

【The commenter above is the stupid one. Who said that there are no demonic pens in the world? I have a demonic pot at home okay? It’s helping me take care of my flowers everyday. It’s very thoughtful!】

    【哎呀,上面都跑题了。人家楼主的笔妖受伤了,你们敢不敢有点同情心,好好帮楼主解决问题不行吗?】

【Sigh, all of you above are going off topic. The poster’s demonic pen is injured. Can you guys be more sympathetic and help the poster solve the problem?】

    【根据我做妖的经验,楼主可以将你家的笔妖带到妖气比较重的地方,让他吸收妖气自行恢复。】

【Based on my experience with demons, the poster can bring your demonic pen to a place with denser demonic energy. Let him absorb the demonic energy and recover on his own.】

    闻景戎觉得这个提议有点靠谱,于是留言问:【什么地方妖气比较重?】

Wen Jingrong felt that this suggestion sounded reliable. Hence, he left a comment and asked, 【What kind of place have denser demonic energy?】

    【酒吧、歌厅、夜总会、鬼屋、发廊、娱乐圈……】

【Bar, cabaret, nightclub, haunted house, hair salon, entertainment circle…】

    闻景戎:手动再见。

Wen Jingrong: Goodbye emoji.

    尚可在一旁看得乐不可支,笔身都笑得颤动起来。

Shang Ke who was at the side felt so amused watching. His pen body was shaking due to him laughing.

    闻总,你的人设崩了!

President Wen, you’re going out of character!

    闻景戎感觉笔身震动,于是将他摆到屏幕前,问道:“可可,你觉得怎么样?”

Wen Jingrong felt the pen vibrating. Hence, he held the pen towards the screen and asked, “What do you think Keke?”

    不怎么样?他需要的是煞气,煞气!

Nothing much? What I need is negative energy. Negative energy!

    尚可思量片刻,然后努力凝聚法力,慢吞吞地在屏幕上写道:【你监狱里有人吗?】

Shang Ke thought for a moment. Then, he tried his best to gather his powers and slowly wrote on the screen, 【Do you know anyone in the prison?】

    若论凶煞之地,首推监狱。估计只要进一次监狱,尚可就能补充到足够的煞气。只是那种地方不能久待,否则会损耗闻景戎身上的福气。

If we are talking about the place with the strongest negative energy, the first place to think about is the prison. Shang Ke reckons that he can replenish himself with ample negative energy just by going to the prison once. However, he couldn’t stay long in that kind of place or it would wear out the blessing on Wen Jingrong’s body.

    闻景戎见尚可回应,忍不住惊喜,连忙问道:“去监狱做什么?”

Wen Jingrong couldn’t help but feel pleasantly surprised by Shang Ke’s reply. He hurriedly asked, “Why do you want to go to the prison?”

    【监狱妖气重,可以帮我恢复。】

【The demonic energy in the prison is dense and can help me recover.】

    “我明白了。”闻景戎没有多问,直接打了个电话,安排探监事宜。

“I understand.” Wen Jingrong didn’t ask anymore. He directly made a call and made arrangements to visit a prison.

    闻景戎的公司以前有一名主管因为贪污公款而被送进监狱,说起来那人还是他的远方亲戚,去探个监也算正常。

Wen Jingrong’s company had a supervisor who was sent into prison due to embezzlement. Speaking of which, that person was his distant relative. It’s still considered normal for him to go to prison for a visit.

    第二天,闻景戎便带着尚可牌煞笔开车去了那名主管所在的监狱。

The next day, Wen Jingrong brought the Shang Ke brand demonic pen and drove to the prison that supervisor was in.

    刚抵达监狱入口,尚可便感觉一股股浓郁的煞气扑面而来,如同一道道美食,勾得他口水直流。

They have just arrived at the entrance of the prison and Shang Ke felt waves of dense negative energy rushing over. They were like delicious dishes of food coming one after another, causing him to drool.

    闻景戎办好手术后,便在探监室与那名主管见了面。

After Wen Jingrong was done with the procedures, he met the supervisor in the visiting room.

    他们具体聊些什么,尚可没有关注,他此刻正在拼命吸收煞气。虽然大部分煞气都被闻景戎的福光净化,但泄漏的丝丝缕缕也足以让他美美地饱餐一顿。

Shang Ke didn’t pay attention to what they talked about. He was currently doing his utmost best to absorb the negative energy. Although most of the negative energy was purified by Wen Jingrong’s blessing, the little bits that slipped in was still enough for him to have a wonderful meal.

    待探监时间结束,尚可之前在火灾中消耗的煞气基本都补充回来了。

The visiting time was over. Shang Ke has basically replenished the negative energy that was consumed during the previous fire.

    返回别墅的路上,闻景戎一边开车一边问:“可可,怎么样?”

Wen Jingrong asked while driving when they were on their way back to the villa, “How was it Keke?

    “很好。”软绵的声音传入闻景戎的耳中。

“Very good.” A soft voice sounded into Wen Jingrong’s ears.

    闻景戎的视线扫视一圈,并没有看到尚可的身影。

Wen Jingrong glanced around but didn’t see Shang Ke’s figure.

    “这里,这里。”尚可的声音再次响起,这次是在他的前方。

“Here, here.” Shang Ke’s voice sounded again. It was from the front this time.

    闻景戎低头一看,赫然见到一个拇指大的小人正坐在方向盘上,欢快地朝他挥手。

Wen Jingrong lowered his head to look and was shocked to see a thumb sized person sitting on the steering wheel, waving at him cheerfully.

    闻景戎手指收紧,差点把方向盘给拧断了。好悬在最后一秒稳住,脸上连一丝惊慌都没有显现,只是绷紧的肌肉泄露了他心中的惊愕。

Wen Jingrong’s fingers tightened and almost broke the steering wheel. Fortunately, he managed to hold himself back. There wasn’t even a trace of panic on his face. Only his tense muscles revealed the astonishment in his heart.

    他的恋人变成一只拇指娃娃,坐在他的方向盘上朝他挥手,他应该用什么表情来迎接他华丽的出场?

His lover has become a thumb sized baby and was sitting on the steering wheel, waving at him. What kind of expression should he have to welcome his magnificent appearance?

    想来想去,还是先把他从方向盘上拎下来吧,看着他的身体随着方向盘的移动而摇摆,总感觉不踏实。

After racking his brain, he decided that he should probably carry him down from the steering wheel first. He felt unsafe seeing Shang Ke’s body swaying along with the movement of the steering wheel.

    闻景戎用两根手指圈住尚可的身体,小心翼翼将他放在副驾驶座上。

Wen Jingrong used two fingers to encircle Shang Ke’s body and carefully placed him on the front passenger seat.

    “可可,你怎么变这么小?”

“Keke, why are you so small?”

    “节省法力。”维持成人实体需要消耗不少法力,尚可打算等进入闻景戎的梦中多积攒一些煞气再变回正常大小。

“Saving my powers.” It takes a lot of power to maintain an adult human body. Shang Ke intends to enter Wen Jingrong’s dream and accumulate more negative energy first before changing back to his normal size.

    “需要我多进几次监狱吗?”闻景戎正色地问。

“Do you need me to go to the prison a few more times?” Wen Jingrong asked seriously.

    “不用了。”监狱是积煞之地,若非万不得已,尚可也不会让闻景戎到这里来。他与自己签订了契约,若非福气的庇佑,恐怕早就被他连累了。煞笔不是一般人能够持有的,再善良的人也会有阴暗的一面,像闻景戎父亲那样心思纯正的老好人,可谓是世间罕有。

“No need.” The prison is a negative energy pool. Shang Ke wouldn’t have let Wen Jingrong come here if he had a choice. Wen Jingrong has signed a contract with him. If not for the blessing’s protection, Wen Jingrong would have long been implicated by him. An evil pen wasn’t something a normal person can hold on to. Even the kindest person has their dark side. A good hearted old man like Wen Jingrong’s father is rare in the world.

    闻景戎的福运,既是伤害尚可的武器,也是让尚可得以安心待在他身边的依仗。

Wen Jingrong’s fortune blessing was a weapon that harms Shang Ke but also an assurance that allows Shang Ke to stay by Wen Jingrong’s side with a peace of mind.

    当天晚上,尚可迫不及待进入闻景戎的梦中,与他缠缠绵绵,互诉衷肠……好吧,其实大部分时间都是深入浅出的肢体交流。

Shang Ke eagerly went into Wen Jingrong’s dream at night and tangled with him as well as to have a deep conversation… Fine. Most of it was physical conversation of deep entry and shallow exit.

    “工厂的事情怎么办?”中场休息时,尚可问道。

“What about the workshop factory?” Shang Ke asked during their break.

    “先安排那些职工去另外的工厂培训,等这边重建后,再正式上岗。”闻景戎腻在尚可身上,一根根数着他的手指,暗道笔妖化形的能力真不错,指甲的形状都无懈可击。

“I will arrange for those workers to go to another factory for training first. They will formally go to work after this factory is rebuilt.” Wen Jingrong laid on Shang Ke and counted his fingers one by one. He quietly thought that a demonic pen’s ability to transform is pretty good, even the shape of the nails are impeccable.

    “这场火也不知道是谁放的,烧毁一座厂房,害了两条人命,这么做到底有什么好处?”

“I wonder who set the fire to burn the dormitory buildings. It has harmed two lives. What’s the advantage of doing this?”

    闻景戎眼中蒙上寒霜,沉声道:“这件事我一定会查个水落石出,敢在我闻景戎的地盘闹事,我一定要让他们付出代价。”

Wen Jingrong’s eyes were ice cold. He said with a low voice, “I will check this matter thoroughly. I will definitely make them pay the price for daring to make trouble on my territory.

    更重要的是,他们让他差点失去了他的笔!世上独一无二的煞笔!

Most importantly, they almost made him lose his pen! His one and only evil pen!

    尚可:为什么总觉得自己每天都在被人骂……

Shang Ke: Why do I feel like I’m getting scolded by someone everyday… 

[1] Demonic – Just to clarify for those who have never read cultivation novels before, this isn’t referring to English fantasy kind of demon. Something like a supernatural being.
