Chapter 165: Back To That Key Moment ④


TL: SnowTime, Sarah

    尚可睁开眼时,发现自己正处在一个狭小的空间,四周都是水,阳光从上方投射下来,一片波光粼粼,隐约可以看见水中游弋的鱼群和色彩斑斓的珊瑚。

When Shang Ke opened his eyes, he found himself in a narrow space surrounded by water. The sunlight was projected from above and through the shimmering light, he could faintly see a school of fish swimming among the colorful corals in the water.

    珊瑚中放着一口透明的大箱子,尚可便置身其中。他尝试撞了几下,箱子纹丝不动,显然被封得很严实。

Shang Ke was in a large transparent box on the coral. He tried to hit it a few times, but the box did not move. It was obviously sealed very well.

    尚可此刻是海豚形态,身上到处都是伤,虽然经过处理,但看其严重程度,基本没有存活的可能。这么说,他现在是死而复生?回溯到了大战怪物戴普森之后?

Shang Ke was now in dolphin form with injuries all over his body. Although he had been treated, there was little chance of survival considering the severity of his wounds. So he was now back from the dead? After the monster war with Dipson?

    按照秦渊的性格,肯定不会将他的“尸体”交给研究院,最有可能的做法就是将他“风光大葬”,所以这口透明箱子,其实是他的棺材?

According to Qin Yuan’s character, he would definitely not give his “corpse” to the research institute. His most likely course of action was to bury Shang Ke “in an extravagant way”. So this transparent box was actually his coffin?

    一觉醒来,发现自己被活生生关在透明棺材里,沉入深不见底的大海,这妥妥的恐怖片场景啊。

To wake up and he find himself living in a transparent coffin and sinking into the bottomless sea. What a horror-movie style scene.

    系统,你是故意的吧!

System, you did this on purpose!

    【身体修复中……】

【Under Body Restoration…】

    尚可在棺材里摆了摆尾巴,问道:“修复需要多长时间?”

Shang Ke wagged his tail in the coffin and asked, “How long will it take?”

    【预计700天。】

   【Estimated to be 700 days.】

    700天……系统,你怎么不上天?别说700天,不用7天他就得先饿死了,即便没饿死,他也会因为缺氧而死。海豚可不是鱼,他是需要呼吸的。

700 days… System, why don’t you go to heaven?  Don’t say 700 days, he would starve to death in seven. Even if he didn’t starve to death, he would die from the lack of oxygen. Dolphins weren’t fish, they needed to breathe.

    【宿主可选择暂时休眠,系统会维持宿主的基本生存所需。】

【Host can choose to hibernate, and the System will maintain Host’s basic survival needs.】

    尚可想了想,接受了系统的提议。虽然他很想尽快见到秦渊,但目前这种残缺不全的状态,估计会让他看着难受,还是等修复后再说吧。

Shang Ke thought for a moment and accepted the System’s proposal. Although he would like to see Qin Yuan as soon as possible, his current mutilated state would no doubt make him upset. Let’s wait until after he was healed.

    尚可闭上眼睛,在系统的辅助下,缓缓进入深度休眠……

Shang Ke closed his eyes and slowly entered hibernation with the aid of the system …

    “秦总,秦总?”一个声音仿佛从天边传来,唤醒了秦渊的神智。

“Director Qin? Director Qin!” A voice seemed to come from above, waking Qin Yuan up.

    “秦总,这是岛屿的规划图,您觉得怎么样?”秘书一边在屏幕上展示岛屿的立体图形,一边用询问的眼神看向秦渊。

“Director Qin, this is the chart of the island. What do you think?” His secretary showed the three-dimensional figure of an island on the screen while looking at Qin Yuan with inquiring eyes.

    秦渊看了看屏幕,又看了看似乎年轻了许多的秘书,眼中出现片刻茫然。

Qin Yuan looked at the screen, then at his secretary, who seemed to look much younger, and his eyes became blank for a moment.

    “秦总,有什么问题吗?”秘书看着仿佛魂游天外的秦总,迟疑地问。

“Director Qin, is there a problem?” The secretary hesitantly asked after looking at Director Qin, who seemed to be zoning out.

    秦渊面带疑惑地四下扫视,随后转了转自己手上的戒指,冰凉的触感,让他感到无比真实。

Qin Yuan looked around doubtfully, then turned the ring on his hand. The cold touch felt especially real.

    奇怪,他怎么会出现在这间几十年没有踏足过的办公室?眼前的秘书还如此年轻,他给他展示设计图的情景,也是如此熟悉。

Strange… How could he appear in this office that he hasn’t set foot in decades? In front of him, his secretary still looked so young and was showing him the designs that also seemed familiar.

    秦渊的视线落在自己手指上,发现手上皮肤紧致光滑,没有一丝皱纹。

Qin Yuan’s eyes rested on his fingers and found that the skin on his hands was firm and smooth without any wrinkles.

    秦渊开始意识到事情有些不对劲,倏地站起身,快步朝洗手间走去,站在镜子前的那一瞬间,他终于确定了自己的猜测。

Qin Yuan began to realize something was wrong. He suddenly stood up and walked quickly to the bathroom, standing in front of the mirror and finally confirming his guess.

    “安松,安松!”秦渊从洗手间冲出来,急切地问道,“今天是几月几号!”

“An Song! An Song!” Qin Yuan rushed out of the bathroom and asked eagerly, “What is the date today?”

    秘书安松愣了一下,回答:“5月13日。”

Secretary An Song paused and replied, “May 13th.”

    “年份?”

“Year?”

    “3755年。”安松对于秦渊的问题有些摸不着头脑。

“3755.”  An Song was somewhat confused about Qin Yuan’s questions.

    3755年5月13日,3755年5月13日……秦渊颓然坐倒,距离火焰死亡已经过去两年。原本以为是上天恩赐,让他有机会改变历史,结果却是如此残酷。既然给他重生的机会,为什么不让他回到火焰活着的时候!难道他还要重复度过几十年的孤独生活吗?

May 13th, 3755, May 13th, 3755… Qin Yuan slumped, two years after Flames death. He originally thought that it was a gift from heaven, giving him an opportunity to change history. However, the result was so cruel. Since he had the chance to time travel, why not let him return to the time when Flames was alive? Did he have to repeat decades of a lonely life?

    秦渊揪着胸口的衣物,表情扭曲,感觉自己快要窒息了。

Qin Yuan tugged at the clothes on his chest, his expression twisted and feeling suffocated.

    突然,他动作一顿,脸色突变。

All of a sudden, he twitched and his face changed.

    5月13日!是小海浪自杀的时间!

May 13th! It was the suicide date of Waves!

    秦渊猛地推开身前的安松,疯了一般冲向海浪所在的水族馆。

Qin Yuan pushed aside An Song in front of him and rushed frantically to the aquarium where Waves was.

    海浪,求求你,不要离开。

Waves, I beg of you, don’t leave me.

    秦渊无法再承受一次失去他们的痛苦。

Qin Yuan couldn’t endure the pain of losing them again.

    “海浪!”气喘吁吁地赶到水族馆,秦渊冲着水面大吼一声。

“Waves!” Rushing to the aquarium, Qin Yuan shouted at the water while gasping for breath.

    咕隆,海浪的脑袋从水里冒出来,两只闪亮的眼睛直直地望着秦渊。

Plop. Waves’ head emerged from the water, two shining eyes looking straight at Qin Yuan.

    秦渊仰头长舒一口气,虚脱般地坐在岸边,对海浪招招手:“海浪,过来。”

Qin Yuan stared and breathed a sigh of relief. He collapsed on the edge of the pool and gestured to Waves, “Waves, come here.”

    海浪摇摇晃晃地游过来,亲昵地蹭了蹭秦渊的手。

Waves swam forward unsteadily and intimately nuzzled Qin Yuan’s hand.

    “海浪,我只剩下你了,不要离开我吗?”秦渊的语气带着请求。

“Waves, I only have you left. Don’t leave me?” Qin Yuan requested.

    海浪也不知道听懂没有,冲他叫了几声。

He didn’t know if Waves understood him. The dolphin called out a few times to him.

    秦渊继续说:“我买了一座小岛,过几天,我就把你送过去,再也不会让你受到伤害。我只求你,好好活着。”

Qin Yuan continued, “I bought an island. In a few days, I’ll send you there and never let you get hurt again. I only ask you to live well. “

    两行眼泪从秦渊眼角滑落,两世轮回,依然没能留住他的火焰。好在,他还来得及救回海浪。

Two lines of tears slipped from the corner of Qin Yuan’s eye. After two cycles of life, he still failed to keep his Flames. Fortunately, he still had time to save Waves.

    秦渊眼中闪过一抹绝决,一个计划在心中成形……

Qin Yuan’s eyes flashed a touch of determination, and a plan took shape in his mind…

    几天后,秦渊公布了一个让世界震惊的消息:海浪自杀了。

A few days later, Qin Yuan announced a shocking news to the world: Waves committed suicide.

    因为火焰的死亡和连续不断的实验,让海浪情绪抑郁,最终选择了自杀。秦渊还上传一个视频,视频取自水族馆的监控,海浪从水中高高跃起,义无反顾地冲向岸边的石台。虽然没有见到撞击的瞬间,但海浪在地上抽搐的身影却很清晰。

Because of the death of Flames and continuous experiments, Waves grew depressed and finally chose to commit suicide. Qin Yuan also uploaded a video, which was taken from the aquarium’s surveillance. Waves jumped high from the water and rushed to the stone platform on the shore without hesitation. Although one couldn’t see the moment of impact, the figure of Waves convulsing on the ground was very clear.

    海浪的“死”,在全球引起了不小的震动,指责谩骂之声接踵而来。

The “death” of Waves caused quite a shock around the world, with waves of accusations being thrown around.

    秦渊一方面让所有人都以为海浪自杀了,一方面动用自己手上的力量,将海浪秘密送往他刚刚买下的火焰之翼。

While Qin Yuan made everyone think that Waves had committed suicide, he used his power to secretly send Waves to the Wings of Flames he had just bought.

    这一次,即便千夫所指,即使顶着再大的压力,他也要保住海浪。

This time, even though he was condemned by many people and was under great pressure, he still wanted to keep Waves alive.

    至于那几只小人鱼,他暂时只能放弃。他们没有火焰的照顾,过不了多久就会夭折,人类完全没有哺育他们的经验。

As for the little merfolk, he could only give up for the time being. Since they did not have the care of Flames, and human beings had no experience in nurturing them, they would die before too long.

    之后,秦渊慢慢将产业转移,开始为脱离这个国家做准备。国家实验室正在研究变异基因,再过不久,第一次变异危机就会爆发。

After that, Qin Yuan slowly transferred his property and began to prepare his leave from the country. The National Laboratory was studying mutant genes. Soon, the first mutation crisis would break out.

    秦渊没有兴趣参与其中,只希望海浪远离危险,平安一生。为此,无论需要付出多大的代价,他也在所不惜。

Qin Yuan was not interested in participating in it. He only hoped that Waves would be far away from danger and live a safe life. For this reason, no matter how much it cost, he would not hesitate.

    扑腾!海浪从翻滚的浪潮中跳起,激起片片水花。

Flop! Waves jumped up from the rolling waves, causing patches of spray.

    秦渊站在沙滩上,望着它嬉戏的身影,企图从它身上寻找到另一个熟悉的影子“秦总,回去休息一会吧,你已经几天没合眼了。”秘书安松担忧地望着秦渊。

Qin Yuan stood on the beach, looking at its playful figure while trying to find another familiar shadow from it. “Director Qin, go back and have a rest. You haven’t slept for days.” Secretary An Song anxiously looked at Qin Yuan.

    秦渊双眼乌青,眉头紧皱,一脸疲态。长时间的失眠,让他的脸色看起来十分可怕。

Qin Yuan’s eyes were heavily bagged, and his brows were drawn tight. He looked tired. The long-term insomnia had made his face look terrible.

    “没事,你去忙吧,我再待会。”秦渊站立不动,丝毫没有回去的意思。

“It’s fine. You can go do your work. I’ll stay a bit longer.”  Qin Yuan stood still and had no intention of returning.

    安松暗叹一声,转身走开。

An Song heaved a heavy sigh, before turning and walking away.

    秦渊继续望着海面,仿佛一尊石像般一动不动。

Qin Yuan continued to look at the sea, motionless as a statue.

    这时,海浪向这边游过来,仰着脑袋冲秦渊直叫唤。

At this time, Waves swam towards him, leaning back his head and shouting at Qin Yuan.

    秦渊走到海边,疑惑地看向海浪,不明白它想干什么。

Qin Yuan went to the coast and looked at Waves doubtfully. He did not understand what he wanted to do.

    海浪觉得这个人类实在太笨了,一点眼色都没有!于是海浪转身向大海中游去,然后回头对他叫几声,接着又向大海中游了一会,再停下来冲秦渊叫。

Waves thought that this human was really too stupid, no EQ at all! So Waves turned and swam towards the sea, then turned back to call him a few times. He swam towards the sea for a while again, then stopped to call for Qin Yuan.

    反复几次后,秦渊终于明白了,海浪是想让他跟它去什么地方。

After repeated several times, Qin Yuan finally understood that Waves wanted him to go somewhere.

    秦渊二话不说,去码头开出一辆快艇,跟着海浪朝大海深处驶去。

Without further ado, Qin Yuan drove a speedboat to the dock and followed Waves to the depths of the sea.

    行了一个多小时,已经看不到海岛的影子。海浪终于停下来,叫唤几声后便翻身钻入海中。

After traveling for more than an hour, he couldn’t see the shadow of the island anymore. At last Waves stopped, and after a few calls he rolled over and dived into the sea.

    秦渊看了看坐标,心口一痛,这不正是当初海葬火焰的位置吗?秦渊双拳收紧,没有勇气下去看他一眼。

Qin Yuan looked at the coordinates and felt a pain in his heart. Wasn’t this where Flames was buried? Qin Yuan tightened his fists and did not have the courage to go down and look at him.

    咕隆,海浪从水里冒出来,摇头摆尾地示意他跟过来。

Plop. Waves sprang out of the water and motioned for him to follow.

    秦渊抿了抿嘴,最后像是下定什么决心一般,拿起快艇上的潜水服换上,然后纵身跳入海中。

Qin Yuan pursed his lips and as if he had made some resolution to himself, he finally picked up the diving suit on the speedboat and changed into it. Then he jumped into the sea.

    波光粼粼的海底,仿佛另一个世界,冰冷、寂静、广阔,这里是孕育火焰的地方,也是他最终的归属。

The sparkling sea floor was like another world—cold, silent and vast. This was the place where Flames was born and also his final place of resting.

    秦渊一手搭在海浪的背鳍上,跟着他一路向下游,不过多时便看到一片色彩斑斓的珊瑚群,一口透明的棺材正安静地摆放其中。

Qin Yuan laid one hand on Waves’ dorsal fin and followed him all the way downstream. Not long after, he saw a colorful coral group with a transparent coffin quietly placed in it.

    秦渊放开手,动作迟缓下来。

Qin Yuan released his hand and slowed down.

    海浪却没有犹豫,快速游进珊瑚群,绕着棺材打转。

But Waves did not hesitate and quickly swam into the coral colony, circling around the coffin.

    火焰……秦渊在心中默念他的名字,然后缓缓向他游去。

Flames … Qin Yuan silently recited his name in his heart, and then slowly swam towards him.

    游到近前,秦渊身形骤然一顿,瞳孔猛地收缩,脸上露出不敢置信的表情。

Once he swam to the corals, Qin Yuan’s body suddenly had a shock, his pupils contracting sharply. An expression of disbelief swept over his face.

    为了确定自己没有眼花,秦渊整个人趴在玻璃棺上,望着棺中那只全身完好无损、如同睡着的海豚,心脏不由得剧烈的跳动起来。

In order to make sure he wasn’t just seeing things, Qin Yuan swam closer to the glass coffin, looking at the intact body inside, like a sleeping dolphin. His heart couldn’t help but beat violently.

    可能吗?真的可能吗?受了那么重的伤,已经确定死亡的火焰,居然还能起死回生?

Was it possible? Was it really possible? Flames had been so heavily injured and even pronounced dead, was it really possible for him to rise from the dead?

    秦渊眼中闪烁出从未有过的神采,就像长年置身黑暗中的人终于看到了一线光明。

Qin Yuan’s eyes shone with a foreign gleam. It was like a person who’d been immersed in darkness for so long finally saw a ray of light.

    火焰在玻璃棺中轻轻浮动,身上没有留下一点伤痕,光滑的皮肤,在波光的映照下,如同晶莹剔透的蓝色水玉。

Flames floated gently in the glass coffin without any scars in his body. The smooth skin was glittering and a translucent aquamarine blue which was a reflection to Waves’.

    秦渊的手轻轻从玻璃棺上滑过,似乎想要透过这块厚实的玻璃层感受他的呼吸,眼神温柔而眷恋。

Qin Yuan’s hand pressed gently on the glass coffin, as if to feel Flames’ breath through this thick glass layer, with sentimentally attached eyes.

    火焰还活着!秦渊此时无比确定。

Flames was still alive! Qin Yuan was very sure this time.

    虽然震惊于海豚的复生能力,但无论什么原因,都比不上失而复得的喜悦。

Although shocked by the dolphin’s ability to resurrect, no matter what the reason was, it couldn’t compare with the joy of knowing Flames was recovering.

    这时,秦渊像是想到什么,脸色突然一变,呼吸也开始急促起来。

Suddenly, Qin Yuan seemed to think of something. His face lost color and his breathing grew rapid.

    如果火焰能够复生,那么前世他在地面自诩深情地思念他时,他却一直待在冰冷海底,受困于狭小的玻璃棺?

If Flames could be resurrected, then when he had been thinking of him fondly in the past, had the dolphin been staying in the cold sea floor and trapped in a narrow glass coffin?

    那时的他,甚至没有再来看他一眼!

At that time, he hadn’t even come to see Flames again!

    整整三十年,火焰就这样独自在海底的玻璃棺中活了三十年?

For thirty years, had Flames lived alone in a glass coffin at the bottom of the sea?

    天啊,他都做了些什么?

Oh gods, just what had he done?

    如果火焰当时成功复活并获得自由,必然会回来找他。但直到他死前,也没有火焰的消息,可见他根本没能逃出这口棺材。他亲手给火焰打造了一个坚固的牢笼,让他求生不能求死不if 得。

If Flames had successfully revived and obtained freedom back then, he would have come back to find him. But till his death, he never heard from Flames at all. It meant that he was never able to escape from his coffin. He personally created Flames a strong prison, and made him suffer from being unable to live, yet being unable to die.

    秦渊浑身颤抖起来,这个真相比看着火焰死在他面前更让他痛不欲生。

Qin Yuan trembled. The brutal truth caused him more pain than Flames dying in front of him.

    火焰……

Flames… 

    秦渊紧紧抱着冰冷的玻璃棺,无声地悲泣。

Qin Yuan hugged the ice-cold glass coffin tightly as he wept silently.

Sarah: man, that would have been really sad if past life Flames went through that… THANK GOD HE DIDN’T but poor ML doesn’t know that ;w; https://ko-fi.com/sarah_min

    This was a rollercoaster of emotions; after revival, sadness and loneliness due to still loss of flames and possibly reliving the same things, hope because he was able to save waves, and then, intense guilt because flames looks like he’s recovering and might’ve been imprisoned in the lonely bottom of the sea the past lifetime.
    Qin Yuan. This poor guy feels guilty now. Shang Ke is fine, just get him out of the coffin and into your island 😢 he’ll wake up when hibernation ends

    Thank you for translating 💕🙏💕

    When you try think/guess about the storyline like a plot king, you’ll be like Qin Yuan. This is why I don’t try to exercise my brain and theorize about this and that when I read so that I can have a surprise Pikachu face when a plot twist happen. Then be happy as an idiot.
    Or it be boring after all. Have a nice day, everyone.
