Chapter 163: Back To That Key Moment ③


    “菲尔墨少校。”莱因的副官匆匆找到刚从训练营中出来的尚可,说道,“大人今天会在老部长家留宿。”

“Major Filmore.” Rhine’s adjutant hurried found Shang Ke who had just left the training camp and told him, “Sir will be staying overnight at the department head’s home.”

    尚可奇怪地看了他一眼:“这件事我知道,怎么了?”

Shang Ke gave him a strange look, “I know about that. What’s wrong?”

    副官僵着脸道:“您还是去把大人接回来吧,部长夫人刚才带了一位年轻漂亮的Omega回来。”

Adjutant’s face was stiff as he reported, “You should go take Sir home. Department head’s wife brought back a young and pretty omega home.”

    副官特意在“年轻漂亮”四个字上加重了语气。他口中的“老部长”是莱因的伯父蒙德斯,经常会叫莱因去家里坐坐,尚可因为要训练,所以没有和他同行。

The adjutant stressed the words “young and pretty”. The department head he spoke of was Rhine’s uncle from his father’s side, Mendes. He would frequently invite Rhine to his place as a guest. Since Shang Ke needed to train, he had not met him before.

    尚可闻言,眼神微动,大步一迈:“走。”

Shang Ke’s mood immediately changed. “Let’s go.”

    此时蒙德斯正在客厅中和家人聊天,突然感觉一股强大的信息素从楼上传来,带着无边的杀气,惊得在场所有Alpha全都变了脸色,而Omega则是身体发软,忍不住颤栗。

At the moment, Mendes was chatting with his family in the living room when he suddenly felt a strong surge of pheromones that carried boundless killing intent. Everyone in the room immediately had a change of expression at the fright. Meanwhile, that omega had gone completely weak and shivered nonstop.

    蒙德斯噌的一下从沙发上站起来,快步朝楼上走去。还没走到门口,就听到一声凄厉的惨叫。

Mendes rushed off the sofa and headed upstairs. Before he got to the room, a resounding scream shocked them further.

    “莱因!”蒙德斯扬起拳头在门上重重敲道,“发生什么事了?”

“Rhine!” Mendes pounded on the door, “What is going on?”

    “救命,救命……”里面传来一阵带着哭腔的求救声。

“Save me, save me…” A sobbing voice pleaded from within.

    蒙德斯沉着脸,让开一步,示意身边的管家把门打开。

Mendes steadied himself and stepped back, hinting at his butler to open the door.

    随着一声轻微的脆响,房门应声而开,蒙德斯跨步走进房间。但他只走了几步便停下了,汹涌的信息素如刀锋般凌厉,让他无法继续前行。

With a brittle crack,the door was opened. Mendes stepped into the room, but paused not even a few steps in. The violent surge of pheromones in the room was like a blade that prevented him from going any further.

    房间中光线昏暗,鲜红的血迹,从墙上一直延伸到地面。蒙德斯抬眼朝莱因所在的位置望去,只见他正坐在靠近落地窗的单人沙发上,衣领半开,双手抱胸,眼神冷漠。

The light in the room was dim, highlighting the bloody red marks that extended from the walls to the floor. Mendes looked toward where Rhine was. Rhine sat on the sofa near the french window, his collar half open with his hands held in front of him. His gaze was beyond cold and indifferent.

    在他脚边,一个人影蜷缩着身体躺在地上,满头是血,一双眼睛充满了恐惧。他看到蒙德斯等人进来,立刻激动地想要爬过去,却被莱因一脚踩在手上。

By his feet, a person curled there covered in blood and frightened out of his wits. When he saw Mendes and the others, he was so emotional that he wanted to crawl straight over to them but Rhine stopped any movement by stepping down on his hand.

    “啊!”Omega发出痛苦的哀嚎。

“AH!” The omega screamed in pain again.

    “莱因,你这是干什么!”蒙德斯一脸惊怒地质问。

“Rhine, what are you doing!” Mendes asked in alarm and anger.

    “这句话是不是应该由我来问?”莱因幽幽地说,“亲爱的伯父,您的别墅什么时候变成风月场所了?侄儿又何德何能,劳您亲自给我拉皮条?”

“Shouldn’t I be asking this?” Rhine languidly spoke, “My dear Uncle, since when has your villa turned into a place for romances? How could I, your nephew, trouble you to act as a pimp for me?”

    蒙德斯脸色涨红,一半是气的,一般是恼的,还有几分惊疑不定。眼前这个男人,浑身散发着危险的气息,神态举止与平日的莱因大相径庭。

Mendes’ face was red, half of it was from anger and the other is from irritation. He was also very bewildered. The man before him was overflowing with a dangerous air, it was a complete contrast to the normal bearing Rhine had normally.

    至少在蒙德斯的认知中,莱因绝对不是一个随便对Omega施暴的男人,也不会对长辈说出那样的话。

From Mendes’ understanding of Rhine, he was not someone who would commit violence against an omega, nor was he someone who would speak like this to his elders.

    蒙德斯深呼一口气,用平静的语气说道:“这件事是我自作主张,和克莱没关系,你先放开他,他受伤了,需要治疗。”

Mendes took a deep breath, then spoke calmly, “This was something I did on my own, it doesn’t have anything to do with Clay. Let him go first, he has been injured and we need to treat him.”

    “和他没关系?”莱因将视线移到脚下的Omega身上,“他不是收了你们几千万的‘小费’吗?”

“It has nothing to do with him?” Rhine looked down at the omega under his feet, “Didn’t he receive a couple tens of millions as ‘tip’?”

    “你,你怎么知道?”蒙德斯震惊地看着他。

“How, how did you know?” Mendes looked at him in shock.

    Omega的生育率很高,是国家保护的对象,他们一出生就会获得一定的生活补助。但很多出身贫寒却又长相出众的Omega,为了过上更好的生活,会选择攀附权贵。克莱便是其中之一。

Omegas were protected by the country due to their high fertility. The moment they were born they would be subsidized for life. But many omegas who were born poor but had good appearances would choose to climb up the social ranks by finding powerful and rich people to live even better lives. Clay was one of those.

    上一世蒙德斯送给莱因的Omega正是克莱,结果被性情不变的莱因揍得生活不能自理,事后为了平息祸端,莱因搜集了有关克莱的所有资料,包括他与蒙德斯等人的私下交易。

The omega Mendes sent to Rhine in his first lifetime was also Clay. In the end, he was beaten to the point of being unable to take care of himself by Rhine. In order to deal with the event, Rhine gathered up all the information he could on Clay, which included the private transaction between him and Mendes.

    这一世重来一次,克莱依然没有逃过被虐打的命运,连续两辈子撞上同一个男人的枪口,也不知道是得罪了哪路神魔。

In this cycle of life, Clay still was not able to escape the fate of being beaten. To run into the muzzle of the same man twice, who knows which god or devil he offended.

    “我知道的事情,绝对比您想象中的更多。”莱因眼神冰冷地盯着蒙德斯,嘴角却微微勾起,“伯父,假如我今天‘不小心’把这名Omega给弄死了,您觉得以我们兰斯洛家族的实力,能悄无声息地把这件事摆平吗?”

“The things I know are more than what you can imagine.” Rhine stared coldly at Mendes, but a smile made its way to his lips, “Uncle, for example, if I was to ‘accidentally’ kill this omega, do you think our Lancelot Family will have enough power to quietly clear up this matter?”

    “你开什么玩笑!”蒙德斯无法相信这句话是从莱因口中说出来的,然而莱因的表情一点都不像开玩笑。

“What kind of joke are you making?!” Mendes could not believe that Rhine was the one to say something like that, but the expression on his face did not look like a joke at all.

    克莱更是惊惧不已,哭着哀求:“对不起,我再也不敢了,我把钱都还给你们,你放过我吧。”

Clay was even more terrified. He cried and begged, “I’m sorry, I wouldn’t dare anymore. I’ll return the money, please just let me go.”

    “钱是我伯父给你的,你只管留着。”莱因语气淡漠地说,“毕竟你将要付出的代价,还是抵得上这几千万的。”

“The money given to you was from my uncle, you can keep it.” Rhine indifferently replied, “After all, the price you’re about to pay would need that money.”

    克莱简直快要晕死过去了,把钱还了都不给留条活路。他只是想来献个身,爬个床,没打算把命也送了啊!被众多Omega奉若男神的帝国最年轻的少将,竟然是这么冷血残忍的男人,谁喜欢谁上,反正他是扛不住了,只求活命!

Clay was simply about to faint. Even trying to give back the money wasn’t enough for his survival. He merely wanted to offer his body and climb a bed. He did not want to also throw his life into it! The youngest Major General of the Empire, the Mr. Perfect in countless omegas’ hearts was actually such a cold-blooded man. Whoever likes him can take him, he was done. He just wanted to live now!

    “莱因,这次是我错了,我向你道歉。”蒙德斯上前一步,“放了克莱,我保证以后再也不干涉你的私生活了。”

“Rhine, it was my mistake this time, I apologize to you.” Mendes stepped forward a step, “Let Clay go, I guarantee I will not interfere with your personal life anymore.”

    “但是我现在……”莱因眼中闪过一抹血光,“只想杀人。”

“But right now…” A streak of murderous light went through his eyes, “I only want to kill.”

    蒙德斯被他嗜血的眼神吓得有些胆寒,声音颤抖道:“莱因,你是不是疯了?”

Mendes was terrified by those bloodthirsty eyes and his voice trembled a bit as he asked, “Rhine, have you gone crazy?”

    莱因脸上毫无表情,他觉得自己从来没这么清醒过,清醒地让他记起了最痛苦的回忆。

Rhine’s face lost any expression. He felt that he had never been so awake before, so awake that he remembered the most painful memories of his past.

    莱因一脚踩在克莱的背上,只要稍一用力,他的脊椎就会被他踩得粉碎。

Rhine shifted his foot so it was stepping on Clay’s back. As long as he put more power into it, his vertebra would immediately be crushed.

    克莱浑身颤抖,连声音都发不出来了。

Clay trembled all over, he didn’t even dare to make a sound anymore.

    蒙德斯脸色发白,冷汗直流,几次想要冲上去救人,却被莱因身上的杀气死死压制。

Mendes’ face turned white and cold sweat soaked his back. He had wanted to rush forward to save Clay several times, but the killing intent from Rhine completely suppressed him.

    和蒙德斯一起过来的人,也被他的举动吓得不敢动弹。

The people that came with Mendes were also so frightened out of their wits that they also didn’t dare to move.

    房间中静寂无声,所有人的目光全都集中在莱因的脚上。

The room was silent and all of their gazes converged to Rhine’s foot.

    正在这时,一阵轻微的脚步声由远及近,在安静的环境中,显得格外清晰。

Right at this moment, a stream of soft footsteps made their way towards them. In the still room, it was extremely distinct.

    随后,一股似有若无的信息素,如暖风般吹过,打破了紧绷的气氛。

Soon after, a pheromone that was so faint people almost thought it was their imaginations, blew by like a warm breeze. It completely broke the frigid atmosphere.

    莱因的心脏猛地收缩,缓缓抬起头,朝门口望去。灰暗的世界,因为那股气息的靠近,而逐渐变得明丽。

Rhine’s heart skipped a beat and he slowly raised his head at the doorway. His dull gray world once again became bright and beautiful with the appearance of that pheromone.

    不过多时,一个人影出现在他的视线中,瞬间点亮了他眼前的一切。

Not long after, a figure appeared in his line of sight and lit up his everything.

    熟悉的面容,熟悉的眼睛,熟悉的身形,熟悉的味道……是他的菲尔!

That familiar face, familiar eyes, familiar figure and familiar scent… it was his Filmore!

    莱因蓝色的瞳孔中,清晰地倒映出他的身影。看着他缓缓向他走来,莱因感觉自己的呼吸仿佛停止了。

Within Rhine’s blue eyes, Filmore’s figure was clearly reflected. He watched him slowly come closer and he felt as if his breathing was about to stop.

    “莱因,你在干什么?”尚可看了看地上那名受伤的Omega,又看了看一脸怔神的莱因,一时不明白发生了什么事。

“Rhine, what are you doing?” Shang Ke looked down at the injured omega, then looked back at Rhine. He was a bit confused about the events that had happened here.

    “菲尔……”莱因喃喃唤道。

“Fil…” Rhine called for him in a daze.

    “嗯,我来接你回家了。”尚可笑着朝他伸出手。

“Yes, I’m here to take you home.” Shang Ke extended a hand to him with a smile.

    莱因定定地望着眼前的人,身上的杀气骤然消失,取而代之的是一片柔和。

Rhine silently stared at him. The killing intent hovering around him disappeared without a trace and gentleness took its place.

    即使这个人要将自己带入地狱,他也不会有丝毫犹豫。然而,两手交握的温暖,是如此真实,真实得让他差点落泪。

Even if this man was going to take him to hell, he would have no hesitation to follow him. This hand he was holding was really so warm and so real. He almost cried at the sensation.

    脑中快速闪过几个画面,莱因两世的记忆,一点点重合恢复,最终变得完整。

Memories quickly flashed through his mind. The memories of both lifetimes slowly matched up and recovered until it became complete.

    他重生了,而他的菲尔,还活着。

He went back through time, and his Fil was still alive.

    莱因猛地起身,紧紧抱住尚可,感受他的心跳和体温。

Rhine suddenly stood up and tightly hugged Shang Ke, feeling his heartbeat and temperature.

    他还活着,活着。

He was still alive, alive.

    莱因的视线变得模糊,空寂的心瞬间被失而复得的喜悦所填满。

Rhine sight became blurry as the emptiness in his heart was immediately filled.

    狂暴的信息素如同一只被驯化的野兽,在尚可四周欢欣雀跃。

The berserk pheromone acted like a tamed beast and swirled around Shang Ke happily.

    门口的几人只觉得心口一松,原本压抑的感觉荡然无存,仿佛一下子从冰天雪地进入了和风煦日。

The people at the entrance all relaxed. The stifling oppression was completely gone. It was like a warm spring entering a world of ice.

    尚可拍了拍莱因的背:“抱够了吗?抱够了我们就回家,没抱够的话,回家继续抱。”

Shang Ke patted Rhine on the back, “Have you hugged enough? If you have then let’s go home. If you haven’t, then let’s go home and keep hugging.”

    莱因依依不舍的退开,但手臂仍然牢牢圈着他的腰。

Rhine reluctantly took a step back, but his arms remained firmly around his waist.

    尚可看了看地上的克莱,对蒙德斯说:“他的伤势看起来不清,你们不送他去医院吗?”

Shang Ke looked back down toward Clay and spoke to Mendes, “He looks like he’s pretty seriously injured, are you guys not going to send him to the hospital?”

    蒙德斯下意识看向莱茵,后者眼里只有尚可,根本没空搭理他。

Mendes subconsciously looked toward Rhine, but all that man had in his eyes was Shang Ke, he completely disregarded anyone else.

    蒙德斯于是让管家带人过去搀扶克莱,送他去兰斯洛家族的私人医院进行治疗。期间,几人时不时留意莱因的动静,生怕他一个不开心,又打算杀人玩。

As such, Mendes had his butler get people to help Clay up and send him to the Lancelot Family’s private hospital for treatment. During the whole process, everyone worked carefully around Rhine. They were afraid that they would make him unhappy again and set off another murder scene.

    待众人“有惊无险”地将人送出去后,蒙德斯这才松了口气,开始认真打量莱因怀里的青年。

When everyone finally left with this fearful event as a permanent memory, Mendes finally heaved a sigh of relief and started to observe the young man Rhines was holding.

    这名少校,他早有耳闻。如今亲眼见到,也不得不赞一句风采不凡。

He had long heard of this Lieutenant. Now that he saw him with his own eyes, he also had no choice but to admit his uniqueness. 

    “您好,兰斯洛部长。”尚可礼貌地和他打招呼。

“Hello, Department Head Lancelot.” Shang Ke politely greeted him.

    “别叫我‘部长’,我已经退休了。”蒙德斯瞥了莱因一眼,“和莱因一样,叫我伯父吧。”

“Don’t call me that, I have already retired.” Mendes glanced at Rhine, “You can call me uncle like Rhine does.”

    “好的,伯父。”尚可没有扭捏,很自然地转换了称呼。

“Sure, uncle.” Shang Ke did not think much of it and naturally changed how he addressed him.

    对两人的谈话,莱因置若罔闻,所有心神都在尚可身上。

Rhine turned a deaf ear to their conversation as he single-mindedly focused on Shang Ke.

    蒙德斯不由得暗叹,看来兰斯洛家族注定要出一对Alpha伴侣了。经此一次,他们再也不敢胡乱给莱因送人。他似乎拥有不为人知的第二性格,疯狂,残忍,漠视人命。今天若非尚可及时出现,克莱的小命恐怕就保不住了。他可以肯定,莱因刚才是真的想杀人。

Mendes inwardly sighed, it looks like the Lancelot Family will be having an alpha couple no matter what. With that one fright, they don’t dare to randomly send Rhine people anymore. It was like he had a second personality nobody knew of—crazy, cruel and disregarded human life. If it weren’t for Shang Ke showing up at the right moment, Clay’s life would have really been lost. He can say for certain that the Rhine at the time really wanted to kill him.

    这种危险分子,还是留给这名少校吧,免得放出去祸害其他人。

This kind of dangerous crazy man, it was best to leave him to the Lieutenant so that other people wouldn’t be affected.

    “伯父,时间不早了,我和莱因就不打扰了,他日再登门拜访。”寒暄几句后,尚可向蒙德斯告辞。

“Uncle, it’s getting rather late so we will stop disturbing you. We’ll visit you another day.” After exchanging such superficial greetings, Shang Ke bid his farewell to Mendes.

    “嗯,路上注意安全。”走吧,赶紧的!蒙德斯巴不得尚可把某人领走。今天他受的惊吓够多了,回头还得处理克莱的事情。

“Mhm, be safe on your way.” Leave, the faster the better! Mendes eagerly wanted Shang Ke to take a certain someone away. He had enough of a fright today, he still needed to deal with Clay after this.

    莱因挂在尚可身上,一路被他带着离开蒙德斯的别墅。

Rhine hung himself all over Shang Ke the whole way out of the villa.

    送走两人后,蒙德斯刚想喝口酒安安神,却又收到莱因父亲的电话,对方满心期待地问:“蒙德斯,莱因的事成了没?”

After sending the two away, Mendes was about to drink some wine to calm his nerves when a call from Rhine’s father came through. The other asked expectantly, “Mendes, was it successful?”

    “成了你个头!”蒙德斯气不打一处来,怒吼道,“沃顿,我告诉你,以后最好别再给你儿子找什么对象了,就让他和菲尔墨在一起,否则惹怒了你儿子,后果自负!”

“Like fuck it was!” Mendes immediately erupted in anger as he shouted to the other man, “Wharton, I will tell you now. You better not try to find a partner for your son again. Just let him be together with Filmore. Otherwise, if you anger your son, you can take care of the consequences yourself!”

    说完这句话,蒙德斯毫不客气地截断了通讯,通讯另一头的人则是一脸懵逼。

Mendes cut the line without a trace of politeness after speaking his piece. The person on the other end of the line was completely dumbstruck.

    回家的路上,莱因一直抱着尚可,好像永远不打算放手了。

On the way home, Rhine kept hugging Shang Ke as if he would never let go.

    “不热吗?”尚可问。

“Is it not hot?” Shang Ke asked.

    “不热。”莱因圈着爱人的腰,整个人像没骨头一般懒懒地腻在他身上。

“It’s not.” Rhine continued to hold his lover by the waist as he clung to him as if he was boneless.

    “发生什么事了?”尚可又问。

“What happened?” Shang Ke asked again.

    “没事,再也不会有事了。”上天给他重来一次的机会,他又怎么会让他再出事?

“Nothing, nothing will ever happen again.” The heavens gave him another chance, so how could he allow Shang Ke to have another accident?”

    “那个Omega……”

“That omega…”

    “无关紧要的路人甲而已。”

“An insignificant stranger that’s all.”

    莱因紧贴着尚可,与他十指交握,沉默许久后,突然开口道:“菲尔,我愿意为你改变,尊重你,信任你,爱护你。”

Rhine clung to Shang Ke, their hands intertwined. He remained silent for a long time before finally speaking up, “Filmore, I am willing to change for you, respect you, trust you and cherish you.”

    尚可一怔。

Shang Ke stared blankly for a moment.

    莱因抬起头,深深凝视着他:“所以,我们永远在一起吧?”

Rhine raised his head and gazed deeply at him, “So, let’s stay together forever okay?”

    尚可笑了,轻柔而又坚定地应了一声:“好。”

Shang Ke smiled, he spoke softly but firmly, “Yes.”

    十年后,莱因成功将曾经害他失去尚可的罪魁祸首送进了监狱,然后以破竹之势,进驻权力中心,成为举足轻重的实权人物。这一世因为有尚可的存在,他没有重复过去的血腥之路,而是以个人才能和魅力,在官场建立了真正的权威,获得了民众的一致拥护。

Ten years later, Rhine successfully sent the main culprit that caused him to lose Shang Ke into prison. Then with overwhelming force, he established himself as the main source of power and became the most influential authority in the Empire. Because he had Shang Ke this time, he did not repeat the past events of dominating with blood, instead, he used his personal talent and charm to establish genuine authority and obtain unanimous support of the populace.

    尚可致力于药剂的研制,他所研制的几种生化药剂,对虫族造成了毁灭性的杀伤力,大幅度削减了虫族的数量和繁殖速度,让边境获得了长达数年之久的和平。

Shang Ke worked in drug manufacturing and made a couple types of biochemistry drugs that had great destructive effects toward the arthropods. It greatly cut down their population and breeding speed which gave the border years of peace.

    四十岁时,尚可荣升为上将,比莱因还早两年获得了上将军衔。

When he was forty, Shang Ke was promoted to an admiral. He became one two years earlier than Rhine.

    两名上将,成为了数百年来唯一的一对Alpha伴侣,被誉为“帝国传奇”,在历史上留下了浓墨重彩的一笔。

The two admirals became the only pair of alphas for the past hundreds of years. They went down in the Empire’s history as legends and left many stories.
