Chapter 159: Back To That Key Moment ③


TL: Sarah, SnowTime

    副官为莱因打开车门,问道:“大人,是回营地还是公馆?”

The adjutant opened the car door for Rhine and asked, “Sir, would you be returning to the camp or your mansion?”

    “公馆。”莱因坐在后座,晦暗的目光穿过车窗,落在看不到尽头的远方。

“The mansion.”  Rhine sat in the back seat, his gloomy eyes peered through the windows and fell into the endless distance.

    车子在马路上快速行驶,车内一片死寂,让充当司机的副官感到一股无形的压力,平时都会和长官聊上几句,现在完全没有开口的勇气。

The car was driving fast on the road, and the car was silent. The adjutant, who was the driver, felt an invisible pressure. He would talk to the chief executive at ordinary times. Now he has no courage to speak.

    正在这时,莱因突然低喝一声:“停车!”

Just then, Rhine suddenly ordered: “Stop!”

    副官吓了一跳,但优秀的素质,还是让他立刻做出了反应,平稳而迅速地将车停靠在路边,同时警惕地留意四周的情况。

The adjutant got a fright, but his excellent quality made him react immediately. He parked the car at the side of the road smoothly and quickly, and at the same time kept an alert eye on the situation around him.

    “大人,发生什么事了?”副官问道。

“Sir, what happened?”  Asked the adjutant.

    莱因没有回答,他的目光此刻完全被出现在马路对面的身影所吸引。

Rhine did not answer, his eyes were completely attracted by the figure appearing across the road at the moment.

    他穿着一件湛蓝色的休闲外套,搭配一件白色衬衫,贴身的黑色长裤,勾勒出纤长的双腿。他手上捧着一束如火焰般怒放的鲜花,映衬着他温和的微笑,化作一抹亮眼的色彩,闯入他灰白的视线中。

He was wearing a blue casual coat, a white shirt and close-fitting black trousers, outlining his long legs. The flame-like flowers he held greatly contrasted his gentle smile and gave color to his grey world.

    他所经之处,路边的建筑、花圃、标识……所有的一切,全部像是注入了生机,变得色彩斑斓。

The buildings, flower beds, signs on the roadside… it was like life was injected into it all and gave the world gorgeous colors.

    莱因不受控制地走下车,遥遥望着那道蜿蜒流动的彩虹,随即,他迈开步子,着魔般地追逐而去。

Rhine walked out of the car uncontrollably, looking at the rainbow of colors on the path ahead. He took a step forward and started to chase like a man possessed.

    “大人。”副官急急喊道。

“Sir.”  Cried the adjutant hastily.

    “你自己先回去,不要跟过来。”留下这句话,莱因已经走出老远。

“You can go back first, don’t follow me.”  Leaving this sentence behind, Rhine has gone far away.

    马路上车流穿梭,街道上行人往复,莱因的眼中却只有前方那抹色彩。一步一步跟在他身后,不在乎时间流逝,不在于环境转换,周围的一切都变得安静而平和,仿佛永远也走不到尽头。

Traffic on the road shuttled back and forth, and pedestrians on the street reciprocated, but Rein’s eyes were only fixed on that one color before his eyes.  Following him step by step, he did not care about the passage of time or the change of environment. Everything around him became quiet and peaceful, as if he would never come to an end.

    空气中传来淡淡的清香,莱因先前以为是花香,随后才意识到那是他身上信息素所散发的气味。甜蜜、热情、温柔……每一种都让他眷恋不已。

There was a faint scent in the air. Rhine thought it was the fragrance of flowers before, then realized that it was the smell of pheromones on him.  Sweet, passionate, gentle … Each kind makes him sentimentally attached.

    不知走了多久,前面的青年突然身形一顿,随即加快步伐,冲到一家商场门口。那里有一名alpa正拉扯着一名ega,动作有些粗鲁,脸上的表情也极为不善。

He didn’t know how long he walked, the young man in front of him suddenly paused, then sped up and rushed to the door of a shopping mall.  There was an alpha dragging an omega rudely with an unfriendly face.

    美好的气氛瞬间被打破,莱因重新回到噪杂的世界。

The beautiful atmosphere was instantly broken and Rhine returned to the noisy world.

    “母父。”尚可伸手挡开那名alpa拉扯吉瓦的手臂,冷声质问,“杰拉叔叔,你干什么?”

“Mother.”  Shang Ke reached out to fend off the alpha and tugged at Jiva’s he asked coldly, “Uncle Gerald, what are you doing?”

    杰拉是菲尔墨父亲的弟弟,一直对吉瓦别有用心。只是碍于他大哥的威势,不敢有什么实际行动。

Gerald is Filmore’s father’s younger brother and has always had ulterior motives for Jiva. But because of the power of his eldest brother, he did not dare to take any actual actions.

    “菲尔,你来了。”吉瓦见到自己的孩子,脸上立刻露出开心的笑容。

“Fil, there you are.”  Jiva immediately smiled happily at the sight of his child.

    “母父,他欺负你了?”尚可冷冷地盯着杰拉。

“Mother, was he coercing you?”  Shang Ke stared at Gerard frostily.

    不待吉瓦说话,杰拉先一步辩解道:“谁说我欺负他?我只是看他手上提着东西,想帮他一把罢了。”

Without waiting for Jiva to speak, Gerald defended himself first: “Who said I coerced him? I just saw that he was holding some things and wanted to help.”

    “是吗?那真是误会叔叔了,不好意思。”尚可语气平淡道,“这种事情还是交给我吧,叔叔事务繁忙,我们就不耽误您的时间了。”

“Is that how it is? Then I have really misunderstood you Uncle, my apologies.” Shang Ke spoke in a flat tone. “Let me handle this kind of matter, you should be busy Uncle so we will not take up anymore of your time.

    杰拉假笑几声,识相地走人了。

Gerald faked a few chuckles and walked away.

    尚可如今是准少校(他死前才晋升上校),杰拉也不敢得罪。

Shang Ke was now a lieutenant (he was promoted to colonel only before he died) so Gerald did not dare to offend him.

    见碍眼的人走了,尚可才将手里的花塞到吉瓦怀里,然后从他手上接过购物袋,搭着他的肩膀说:“母父,走,我陪你到处逛逛。”

When the irksome presence left, Shang Ke pushed the flower into Jiva’s arms, and took the shopping bag from his hand. He placed a hand on Jiva’s shoulder and led in a direction, “Mother, let’s go. I’ll take a walk around with you.”

    “好。”吉瓦自是开心不已。

“Okay.” Jiva was very happy.

    杰拉满脸阴郁地走向自己的车,完全没注意不远处有两道冰冷的目光正盯着他。

While Gerald walked to his car gloomily, he was completely unaware of another cold gaze staring at him from the distance.

    莱因记忆中没有这个人的存在,想必不是什么重要人物。

Rhine did not have this person in his memory so he was presumably not someone important.

    倒是那个叫吉瓦的ega,让莱因有些印象,因为他曾经与吉瓦的丈夫接触过几次。同时,他也想起了那名青年的名字——菲尔墨。

It was that Jiva omega who had some impression on Rhine. It was because he had come into contact with Jiva’s husband a couple of times. Another name also came to mind—Filmore.

    几年前,菲尔墨作为军校准毕业生,被派往维亚城参加毕业试练,结果遭遇虫族围攻。在失去长官指挥作战的情况下,此人临危授命,奋勇拼杀,坚守阵地几天几夜,直至援兵抵达,拯救了数万人的性命。

A few years ago, as a prospective military school graduate, Filmore was sent to Via City to take part in the graduation test. As a result, he was besieged by the arthropods. After losing their commanders one by one, this self-sacrificing man risked his life and held his ground for several days and nights until reinforcements arrived, saving tens of thousands of lives.

    后来,还是他亲口下令将此人拉入自己的编制。但是,更多的事情却想不起来了。他可以预见身边大部分人的未来,唯独菲尔墨的记忆十分模糊。

After that, he had personally ordered to pull this man into his own unit. But all other information after that he couldn’t remember. He can see the future of most people by his side, only his memories of Filmore were the most indistinct.

    莱因继续跟在他们身后,默默看着他和吉瓦有说有笑的样子,心中生起一种淡淡的羡慕,以及……莫名的嫉妒。

Rhine continued to follow behind them as he silently watched them happily chat. An envious feeling rose in his heart as well as… jealousy.

    逛完街后,尚可又陪吉瓦在餐厅吃饭。

After they finished their stroll, Shang Ke ate with Jiva at a restaurant.

    莱因坐在距离他们十几米的角落位置,这个位置正好可以看到尚可的正面。

Rhine was sitting in a corner more than ten meters away from them; the position was at the perfect angle for him to see Shang Ke from the front.

    俊美的面容,飞扬的神采,举手投足之间都透着一种难以形容的活力。莱因脑中模糊的形象逐渐清晰,变为更加真实而丰满的存在。

A handsome appearance paired with a smile, his every movement gave off an indescribable energy. The blurred image in Rhine’s mind gradually cleared up and became more real.

    用过晚餐,尚可婉拒了回家留宿的邀请,将吉瓦送上车,与他挥手道别。

After dinner, Shang Ke declined the invitation to go home with Jiva and escorted him to the car before waving him goodbye.

    莱因买单走出餐厅,桌上的食物却是一点都没有动。

Rhine paid his bill and walked out of the restaurant, the food on his table completely untouched.

    外面天色已暗,四周华灯闪烁,一前一后两道身影,安静地在街市中漫步。

The sky was already dark, and lights lit up the area. Two figures quietly wandered upon the road, one in front and another behind.

    莱因不明白自己为什么不主动上前打招呼,像是害怕什么一般,宁愿做一个有失身份的跟踪狂,默默追寻着他的足迹。

Rhine didn’t understand why he didn’t take the initiative to greet him, like he was afraid of something. He would rather be an unidentified stalker and follow his footsteps silently.

    正在这时,身上的通讯器响起。

Just then, his communication device rang.

    莱茵随手点开,里面立刻传来副官的声音:“大人,您现在在哪里?需要属下来接您吗?”

Rhine turned it on and immediately the adjutant’s voice came from inside: “Sir, where are you now?  Would you like me to come pick you up? “

    莱因瞥了一眼时间,这才发现竟然已经过去6个多小时。

Rhine glanced at the time and finally noticed that more than six hours had passed.

    “不用,我自己回去。”结束通话,莱因再抬眼时,那道身影却已经消失在的视线中。

“No need, I’ll go back myself.”  He ended the call and looked back up. But that figure had already disappeared from his sight.

    莱因骤然心脏收紧,感到一阵恐慌,快步穿过人群,四处寻找那个人的身影。

Rhine’s heart suddenly tightened and he fell into  panic. He hurried through the crowd looking for the figure of the man.

    空气中传来若有似无的清香,如同暖风一般,轻轻安抚着莱因躁动的情绪。

A faint remained in the air, and like a warm breeze, it gently soothed Rhine’s restlessness.

    莱因停下脚步,静静感受这股清香的来源。

Rhine stopped and quietly pinpointed the source of the fragrance.

    不多时,他睁开眼,灰暗的世界,再次变得色彩斑斓。刚才消失的身影,重新出现在他的视线中。

A little while later, he opened his eyes and the ashy world became colorful again. The figure that disappeared just now had reappeared in his sight.

    两人的距离,随着对方的主动靠近而逐渐缩短。莱因害怕打破的梦境,在这一刻,变为真实。

The distance between the two people gradually shortened as the other side approached.  Rhine’s fear of breaking this dream was about to become reality at the moment.

    “少将大人,好巧,你也来逛街吗?”尚可凝视着眼前的男人,眼中闪动着喜悦的光彩。

“Sir, what a coincidence. Did you come shopping too?”  Shang Ke stared at the man in front of him, his eyes flashing with joy.

    就在刚才,他察觉到这个男人的信息素,即使在气息混杂的人群中,也是如此清晰而强烈。所以,他又返回了,并且准确地找到了他的位置。

He had just sensed this man’s pheromone. Even if it was mixed with the rest of the crowd, his remained clear and intense. As such, he came back and accurately found him.

    莱因缓缓挪动嘴唇,唤出他的名字:“菲尔……”

Rhine moved his lips slowly and called out his name: “Fil …”

    尚可注意到他的迟疑和忐忑,心中有些奇怪。

Shang Ke noticed his hesitation and uneasiness and was a bit confused.

    如今的莱因,正是意气风发之时,为什么会流露出如此沧桑而沉郁的气息?而且以他们的关系,就算不至于当众秀恩爱,但也不应该生疏至此啊。

The current Rhine should be in his period of high-spiritedness. Why would he show such a sad and gloomy atmosphere? Plus, with their relationship, even if they are unlikely to show their affection in public, they shouldn’t be unfamiliar like this.

    他的表情看起来好像对自己既熟悉又陌生,还有一种不知该如此相处的僵硬。

His expression looked as if he was both familiar and unfamiliar with Shang Ke. There was also a rigidness to him that showed he didn’t know how to interact with him.

    尚可刚刚回溯,还不了解情况,所以并没有贸然表露疑惑。

Shang Ke had just come back to this world so he still did not know the situation. In such circumstances he wouldn’t act rashly.

    他笑着提议道:“既然遇到了,那就逛逛吧。”

He suggested with a smile: “Since we met, let’s have a walk around.”

    莱因点点头。

Rhine nodded.

    两人并肩而行,尚可轻松自然地讲叙着各种街市趣闻,时不时还会买点小东西,然后顺手塞进莱因的手上或者口袋里。

The two walked side by side. Shang Ke told all kinds of interesting stories about the market easily and naturally. From time to time, he would also buy some small things and shove them into Rhine’s hand or pocket.

    莱因只是看着,听着,吃着,毫不设防地让他贴近着。

Rhine just watched, listened, ate and let him approach without any defense.

    他好像已经很久很久没有这种感觉了,仿佛经历了几辈子的孤独,好不容易才找回这份遗失的温暖。

He seems to have not felt this kind of feeling in a long time. As if he had experienced lifetimes of loneliness and finally found the lost warmth he craved.

    “这么晚了?”尚可看看时间,然后对莱因说,“我送你回去吧?”

“It’s so late?”  Shang Ke looked at the time and said to Rhine, “Shall I take you home?”

    “嗯。”莱因应允,“一起回。”

“Mmm.”  Rhine promised, “Let’s go back together.”

    所谓的一起回,就是留尚可过夜。

The so-called back together means having Shang Ke stay overnight.

    尚可把人送到门口,就被他“请”入自己的公馆。

Shang Ke took Rhine to the entrance of his home and was immediately “invited” into his residence.

    经过一两个小时的相处,尚可发现莱因确实变了。以前的莱因锋芒毕露,战意盎然;如今的莱因,威严而内敛,还透着一种隐晦的忧郁和危险的深沉。

After getting along for an hour or two, Shang Ke found that Rhine had really changed. The former Rhine had a sharp edge and was full of fighting spirit. The current Rhine was dignified and restrained. He also gave off a feeling of obscure melancholy and great hidden danger.

    洗完澡,尚可发现莱因正坐在客厅喝酒。

After taking a bath, Shang Ke found Rhine sitting in the living room drinking.

    他一边擦头发,一边走到他身边坐下,问道:“对了,大人,之前不是听说有新任务委派吗?怎么一直没有通知?”

While wiping his hair, he walked over to him and sat down. He asked, “Oh right, Sir, I’ve heard that we got a new assignment. How come there has been no notification?”

    “那个转移任务?”莱因望着他湿漉漉的头发,回道,“我拒绝了。”

“The mission for shifting the camp?”  Rhine looked at his wet hair and answered, “I refused.”

    尚可动作一顿,眼中闪过一抹讶异:“你拒绝了,为什么?”

Shang Ke paused and a look of surprise flashed in his eyes: “You refused, why?”

    这次任务是他的死亡之旅,他都还没做好逆袭的准备,莱因就已经先一步将危险扼杀在摇篮了?

This mission was his route to death. Before he could ready himself for a counter attack, Rhine had already killed the danger in the cradle first?

    难道……他也重生了?

Could it be… he also went back in time?

    但如果真的重生了,他对自己的态度为什么会这么奇怪?既不熟络,也不设防,既不主动亲近,又不疏远。

But if he did, why was his attitude towards him so strange? He didn’t act familiarly, but he had no defenses. He wasn’t intimate, but he wasn’t drifting away either.

    还有,大晚上喝酒,这是以前的莱因从来没有的习惯。特别是在他身边时,更是极少饮酒。

Also, drinking at night was a habit Rhine never had before. He very seldomly drank, especially in his presence.

    “不知道,就是觉得这个任务不能接。”莱因端起酒杯轻抿一口,动做极其自然。

“I don’t know, I just felt that I couldn’t take that mission.” Rhine picked up his wine glass and took a sip. His every action was very natural.

    “晚上喝酒伤胃,我给你煮点东西吃吧?”尚可放下毛巾,起身走向厨房。

“Drinking at night hurts your stomach, shall I cook you something to eat?”  Shang Ke put down the towel and got up to go to the kitchen.

    莱因懒懒地靠在沙发上,两道深邃的目光,始终追随着他的身影。

Rhine leaned lazily on the sofa but his eyes followed him all the time.

    直到厨房传来饭菜的香气,莱因这才感觉饥肠辘辘。今天跟着尚可走了好几个小时,一直没怎么吃东西,此时在饭香的刺激下,肚子立刻鼓噪起来。

It was not until the smell of food came from the kitchen that Rhine felt hungry. He followed Shang Ke for several hours today and didn’t really eat. Now his stomach was stirred up by the stimulation of the food fragrance.

    尚可将食物端出来,直接放在沙发前的茶几上。这会已是深夜,也没那么多讲究。

Shang Ke brought out the food  and placed it on the table in front of the sofa. It was already very late, they didn’t need to be so picky about manners.

    莱因放下酒杯,拿起碗筷便大口吃起来。他吃饭的动作,秉持着军人的风范,如秋风扫落叶一般干净利落。

Rhine put down his wine glass, picked up the bowl and chopsticks and ate heartily. Even while he ate he carried the air of a soldier, his every movement neat and efficient.

    客厅中一片安静,只有莱因碗筷碰撞的轻微声响。

The living room was quiet aside from the slight noises from Rhine’s bowl and chopsticks.

    待他吃完,尚可默默凝视他片刻,随后轻声唤道:“莱因。”

After he finished eating, Shang Ke stared at him silently for a moment before calling out softly, “Rhine.”

    “嗯?”

“Hn?”

    “你……流泪了?”

“You… cried?”

    Hmmm 🤔 does that mean everytime Shang Ke dies in a world, his (ML’s) memory fades? Or is it just because of the reboot? Like due to shang ke going back in time, ML gets the feeling of dejavu? And those are almost always not complete ideas
    I hope ML will get a happy life that he had always though of before Filmore (ShangKe) died. 😢

    Thank you for translating 💕🙏💕
