Chapter 158: Back To That Key Moment ③


TL: Sarah

    莱因捂着阵阵发疼的额头从睡梦中醒来,感觉自己仿佛经历了一场宿醉,但他从来不在任务前喝酒。

Rhine woke up from sleep, clutching his aching forehead and felt as if he had experienced a hangover. However, he never drank before a mission.

    任务?

Mission?

    莱因原本有些浑沌的眼神倏地变得锐利,视线快速在房间中扫过,心中生起一种怪异的感觉。房间还是他的房间,但总觉得哪里不对劲。

Rhine’s originally dazed eyes suddenly turned sharp. His gaze quickly swept across the room, a strange feeling arising in his heart. It was still his room, but there was something wrong about it.

    他慢悠悠地从床上起来,缓步走进浴室。看着镜子中的自己,那种怪异的感觉再次出现。镜子中的他,只穿着一条睡裤,赤lu着上身,身上肌肉健美,正处于男人的巅峰状态。年轻的面孔上,有着军人的刚硬和冷峻。

He slowly got up from bed and walked into the bathroom. Looking at himself in the mirror, that strange feeling appeared again. His reflection showed that he was wearing only a pair of pajamas with a red shirt on, his body looking strong and muscular. He seemed to be at his peak state. His young face had the rigidity and coldness of a soldier.

    冲完澡,莱因光着身体走进卧室,带开墙上的家助系统,正想叫人送餐过来,但手指却停在半空。

After taking a shower, Rhine walked naked into the bedroom and opened the home help system on the wall. He was about to send someone to deliver a meal, but his finger paused in mid-air.

    奇怪,他准备叫谁送餐?平时他不都是去军官食堂吃饭吗?莱因看看时间,早上九点。

That’s strange. Who was he going to call to deliver a meal? Didn’t he usually go to the officers’ canteen for food? Rhine looked at the time and saw it was 9 in the morning.

    九点?这个时间正是他训练的时候,为什么他还在房间睡觉?

9 o’clock? He should be training at this time. Why was he still sleeping in his room?

    不对劲,哪里都不对劲!他的作息很规律,一般都在5点起床,9点已经完成一轮训练了。而且他刚才起床时,动作温吞,与他平时的干净利落截然不同。

Something’s wrong and nothing’s right!  He had a very regular routine. He usually got up at 5 o’clock and finished a round of training at 9. And when he got up just now, his movements were gentle, completely different from his usual efficiency.

    莱因揉了揉眉心,总觉得自己忘记了什么重要的事情。

Rhine rubbed his forehead and felt that he had forgotten something important.

    正在这时,莱因的呼叫器响起,是他的副官。

Just then, Rhine’s device rang. It was his adjutant.

    【大人,奎克将军他们正在等您的回复。】

 【Sir, General Quebec and the others are waiting for your response.  】

    “什么回复?”莱因下意识问道。

“What response?” Rhine asked without thinking.

    【……关于此次阵地转移的带队任务,大人是否愿意接受认命?】

【…Regarding the mission of leading the troops to shift camps. Will Sir be willing to take this?】

    莱因大脑快速运转,随即闪过一个地名:克索河。

Rhine’s brain quickly went through the information, and then the name of a place flashed across his mind: Keso River.

    (注:克索河正是尚可和莱因等人遇袭的地点,尚可正是在这次袭击后,为保护重伤的莱因而死。)

(Note: Keso River was the site where Shang Ke and Rhine were attacked. Shang Ke died protecting the seriously injured Rhine afterwards.

    他几乎是反射性地回答:“这次任务,我不参与。”

He replied almost reflexively, “I will not take part in this mission this time.”

    那边的副官大概很吃惊,又确认一遍才结束通话。

The adjutant on the other side was probably surprised and asked to confirm it again before ending the call.

    莱因烦躁地皱起眉头,疑惑自己为什么想也不想就拒绝了?潜意识似乎觉得这次任务有问题?

Rhine frowned irritably, wondering why he refused without further thought. Did his subconscious think there was something wrong with this mission?

    莱因又抬头看了看自己的房间,莫名有种仿若隔世的恍惚感,心里空空的,好像遗落了某段重要的记忆。

Rhine looked up at his room again. Somehow there was the feeling of being out of time and space. His heart was empty, as if he had lost an important memory.

    穿上军装,莱因走出房间,神色漠然地朝自己专属的训练室走去。

Dressed in military uniform, Rhine walked out of his room and with an indifferent expression, marched toward his own training room.

    正在这时,远处传来一阵骚动。莱因脚步一顿,感觉从那边传来似有若无的信息素气息,而且是正在发情的ega信息素。

Just then, there was a commotion in the distance. When Rhine stepped in, he sensed a faint pheromone smell coming from there, it was an omega in heat.

    莱因眼神凌厉,虽然他们现在处于城中的休整营地,管理不如正规营地那么严格,但也是不允许ega进入全是alpa的营地中的。

Rhines eyes sharpened. Although they were now in a rest camp in the city and the management was not as strict, omegas weren’t allowed to enter a camp full of alphas.

    莱因来到骚动中心,果然看到一名ega躺在空地上,他身上散发的浓郁的信息素,让周围所有士兵都陷入动情状态。若非平时做过这方面的训练,恐怕这会已经有人忍不住冲上去了。

Rhine came to the center of the commotion and saw an omega lying on the open space. The strong pheromones he was emitting made all the soldiers around him fall into a lustful state. Had it not been for the usual training in this field, someone likely would have already rushed up.

    莱因点开通讯器,叫来几名beta执纪员,命他们将那名ega扔进幽闭室,紧闭三天,除了清水,不提供任何食物。

Rhine turned on his communicator and ordered several beta executives to throw the omega into a closed room and shut him in for three days without any food except water.

    一名beta迟疑道:“长官,这个处罚是否太重了?那名ega正处在发情期,直接关进幽闭室可能会让他发疯的,而且他也不是我们营队的人。”

A beta hesitated, “Sir, isn’t this punishment too heavy? The omega is in heat, straight up locking him in a room while he’s in such a state may drive him crazy. He’s not even a member of our battalion. “

    “在我的地方,就要接受我的管制。”莱因见他们不动,冷声问道,“还有什么疑问吗?”

“He’s on my territory so he has to obey my rules.” When Rhine saw them motionless, he asked coldly, “Are there any questions?”

    几个打了一个激灵,连忙领命而去。

Several of them shivered and hurriedly followed the order.

    其中一人小声对同伴说:“有没有觉得今天的少将大人有点可怕?”

One of them whispered to his companion, “Don’t you feel that Sir is a bit scary today?”

    另外一人连连点头:“没错,无论是说话还是眼神,都让人感觉不寒而栗。而且你们发现没有,他完全不受ega信息素的影响。”

Another man nodded repeatedly, “Yes, it makes people shudder whether he’s only talking or looking. And did you notice that he was completely unaffected by the omega pheromones?”

    几人下意识朝不远处的莱因望去,见他脸上毫无波动,看向ega的眼神如同死物一般,透着一种漠视一切的冷酷。

A few people subconsciously looked at Rhine not far away, seeing no fluctuations on his face as he looked at the omega like it was a dead thing. He showed a cold indifference to everything.

    如果说以前的莱因,像是一柄锋芒毕露的长刀,此刻的他,却像一头慵懒而危险的王兽。

If Rhine used to be like a long knife with a sharp edge, now he was like a lazy and dangerous beast king.

    当天晚上,莱因就被上面的人请去“喝茶”,要求他释放那名被紧闭的ega。

That night, Rhine was invited by the higher ups to “drink tea” and ask him to release the secluded omega.

    “他擅自进入军营,引发士兵混乱,按照军规,三天紧闭已经是最轻的惩罚了。”莱因望着眼前这名军官,脑中自动浮现此人的家世背景以及未来的发展历程。

“He entered the barracks without authorization, causing confusion among the soldiers. According to the military regulations, a three day seclusion is already the lightest punishment.”  Rhine looked at the officer in front of him and his family background and future development automatically came to mind.

.    未来的发展历程?莱因心中震荡,脸上却依然不动声色。他又将视线移到其他几人身上,他们的资料也一一呈现在他大脑中,好像已经预见了他们的未来。

His future development? Rhine’s heart was shaken, but his face remained calm. He shifted his eyes to several other people, and their information appeared in his head one by one, as if he had foreseen their future. 

   待莱因看到角落那名中年男子时,心中猛然生起一股强烈的愤怒和仇恨。

When Rhine saw the middle-aged man in the corner, a surge of anger and hatred suddenly arose in his heart.

    奎克,中将,数年后,将因为出卖国家机密和贪污被判处30年监禁,但入狱不到一年,他便意外死在一名囚犯手中,而送他入狱以及暗中策划那场死亡的人正是他,莱因·兰斯洛。

A few years later, General Quebec would be sentenced to 30 years in prison for selling state secrets and corruption. However, he died unexpectedly in the hands of a prisoner in less than a year in prison. It was he, Rhine Lancelot, who sent him to prison and secretly planned the death.

    但奇怪的是,他想不起自己为什么这么恨他。

But strangely, he couldn’t remember why he hated him so much.

    如果他“预见”的未来是真实的,那么他还是会做出同样的选择。因为他对此人的恨意,已经深入骨髓,不死不休。

If the future he “foresaw” was real, he would still make the same choice. Because his hatred for this person settled deep into his bone marrow. It would not be relieved unless this man dies.

    “明白了。”莱因打断某位长官的喋喋不休,起身道,“我明天就把人送回去。几位长官若没有其他吩咐,请容莱因告辞。”

“I understand.” Rhine interrupted the chatter of an official and got up, “I’ll send him back tomorrow. If there are no other orders, please excuse me.”

    莱因停顿了三秒,见无人回应,权当默许,转身便离开了会议室,只留下一群诧异的官员。

Rhine paused for three seconds, saw no response, and assumed acquiescence. He turned and left the conference room, leaving only a group of flabbergasted officials.

    莱因虽然性格冷峻,但向来恪守纪律,很少对长官不敬,像刚才那种打断长官说话、甩手走人的行为,从来没出现过。不过,他既然已经同意放人,众人似乎也没有理由再留下他。在场众人并没有发现,他们刚才潜意识中对如今的莱因产生了一种不敢忤逆的畏惧,对他的擅自离场竟然也不觉得有多失礼……

Despite his cold nature, he always abided by discipline and seldomly disrespected his superiors. He had never interrupted them before and walked away. However, now that he had agreed to release the omega, there seemed to be no reason to keep him. All of the people present didn’t realize that they had subconsciously feared the present Rhine so they didn’t feel his unauthorized departure was disrespectful.

    莱因终于发现不对劲的地方在哪里了,他拥有了本来不应该存在的记忆。唯一不确定的是,这种情况是属于预知未来,还是在重复自己曾经的人生。

Rhine finally found out what was wrong. He had memories that should not have existed.  The only uncertainty was whether he was predicting the future or reliving his life.

    他更倾向于后者,因为他一夜之间转变的性格和行事作风就是最好的证明。如果只是预知未来,他的改变应该发生在未来,而不是现在。

He was more inclined to believe the latter, since his character and style of conduct changed overnight. They were the best proof. If he could only predict the future, this change in him should have taken place in the future, not now.

    所以,他是重生了?

So, he time traveled and revived?

    莱因仔细回想,始终想不起自己是怎么死的。虽然拥有了许多“未来”的记忆,但大多是残缺不全的。比如他不明白自己为什么会拒绝这次转移任务,不记得自己为什么恨奎克,也不记得自己的性格为什么会发生这样的转变。

When Rhine carefully thought about it, he couldn’t remember how he died.  Although he had many “future” memories, most of them were incomplete. For example, he didn’t understand why he refused the mission, didn’t remember why he hated Quebec, and couldn’t fathom why his character had changed like this.

    还有,他失去了什么重要的东西?如果一切重来,他是否能够找回曾经失去的东西?

Also, what important thing did he lose? If everything were to start again, would he be able to find what he had lost?

    莱因闭上眼睛,任由自己沉入孤独而幽静的睡梦中。

Rhine closed his eyes and let himself sink into a lonely and quiet sleep.

    尚可睁开眼,先确认了一下自己身处的环境,然后开始查看日历。

Shang Ke opened his eyes and confirmed his environment first. Then he started checking the calendar.

    咦?如果他没有记错,今天这个时候,他和莱因的小队应该已经在执行任务的路上了。为什么他现在还在营地的休息室?

Huh? If he remembered correctly, this time today, he and Rhine’s team should be on their way to the mission. Why was he still in the lounge of the camp?

    尚可起身朝外看了看,再次确认了他的判断。

Shang Ke got up and looked out, confirming his thoughts again.

    难道任务日期推迟了?

Was the mission date delayed?

    等到第二天,尚可依然没有发现莱因有任何准备启程的迹象。更奇怪的是,他竟然没来看他一眼。

By the next day, there was still no sign that Rhine was ready to leave. What was even more strange was that he didn’t come to see him.

    在之前,莱因几乎天天都会在他身边刷存在感,还喜欢用信息素撩拨他。

Before that, Rhine would show his presence almost every day and also liked to tease him with pheromones.

    难道这次回溯发生了什么变故吗?尚可决定去找莱因,看看他的情况。

Was there a mishap for this return trip? Shang Ke decided to find Rhine and see his situation.

    走出房间时,尚可正好看到两名beta扶着一名ega往外走。定睛一看,竟然还是熟人,正是原主暗恋的对象——里安。

As he left the room, Shang Ke saw two betas supporting an omega out. Looking intently, it turned out to be an acquaintance. It was Ryan, the object of the original owner’s secret love.

    在尚可印象中,这个里安既对菲尔墨感兴趣,又与泽卡纠缠不休,是那种喜欢左右逢源、对感情摇摆不定的人。

As far as Shang Ke could remember, this Ryan was not only interested in Filmore, but also entangled with Zeke. He was the kind of person who liked to play both sides and was indecisive about his feelings.

    不过,尚可记得里安并没有被莱因关过紧闭,还弄得如此狼狈。

However, Shang Ke doesn’t remember Ryan ever being locked up by Rhine and be such a mess.

    “菲,菲尔墨。”里安看到尚可,脸上带着不正常的潮红,他央求道,“我好难受,你能不能送我回去?”

“Fi-Filmore.”  Ryan saw that it was Shang Ke. With an abnormal flush on his face, he pleaded, “I feel so miserable. Can you send me back?”

    尚可为难道:“抱歉,你身上的信息素可能会让我失控,若因此做出冒犯你的事就不好了。”

Shang Ke awkwardly said, “I’m sorry, the pheromones on you might make me lose control. It would be bad if I do something that would offend you.”

    里安真想对他说:他一点都不介意被冒犯!

Ryan really wanted to tell him: he wouldn’t mind being offended at all!

    尚可一副爱莫能助的表情,目送失望的里安离开,然后继续朝莱因所在的训练室走去。

With a helpless expression, Shang Ke watched the disappointed Ryan leave and then continued to walk towards the training room where Rhine was.

    不过他却扑了个空,因为莱因今天并不在营地。于是尚可向长官也告了个假,决定先回家看看母父吉瓦。虽然菲尔墨的父亲有些渣,但他这位温柔的ega母父还是挺好的。

However, his efforts were in vain because Rhine wasn’t in the camp today. So Shang Ke took a leave of absence from the office and decided to go home first to see his mother, Jiva. Although Filmore’s father was a bit of a scumbag, his gentle omega mother was still very nice.

    莱因走出聚会厅,表情冷肃。刚辞他又发现一件古怪的事情,那就是他对任何ega都提不起兴趣了。以前虽然也比较克制,但总归对美味的信息素是有感觉的。但刚才在聚会中,一连接触了好几名ega,情绪都如一潭死水般,毫无起伏。

Rhine walked out of the party hall with a cold expression. As he was leaving, he realized another strange thing, which was, he was no longer interested in any omega. Although he used to be restrained, he always did have some reactions to their delicious pheromones. However, during the party just now, he made contact with several omegas in a row, and his emotions were like a pool of stagnant water without fluctuation.

    不仅如此,他感觉自己有点色弱,很多颜色都变得清淡灰白。若非确定这是一场上层交流会,他几乎会以为这是一场葬礼。事实上,在他“未来”的记忆中,聚会中的大多数人,确实在几年乃至十几年后都死了,而且多半都是直接或间接死在他手上。

Not only that, he felt a little gloomy, all the colors in his view became ashy grey. If he wasn’t sure that he was in a high-society party, he almost thought he was attending a funeral. In fact, in his “future” memory, most of the people in the party did die a few years or even a decade later, and most of them were killed directly or indirectly by his hands.

    莱因自认虽然喜欢权利,却也没有达到为了权利丧心病狂的地步。如果没有外因刺激,他绝对不至于变得如此狠辣。

Rhine thought that although he liked power, he had not reached the point of being crazy for it. If there was no external stimuli, he would never have become so ruthless.

    所以,他身上到底发生了什么事?

So, what happened to him?

    莱因感觉自己好像正在大海中漂流,沉沉浮浮不知归处,完全迷失在这个空洞的世界……

Rhine felt as if he were drifting in the sea, sinking and floating, not knowing where to return to and being completely lost in this empty world…
