Chapter 167: Back To That Key Moment ④


TL: SnowTime, Sarah

    秦渊站在船上,一边做着煎鱼,一边时不时看向海面。两只海豚正在碧海蓝天之间嬉戏追逐,如同两个纯真的孩子,无忧无虑。

Qin Yuan stood on the boat as he pan fried fish and watched the ocean. Two dolphins were currently frolicking and chasing each other like innocent children, carefree without any worries.

    煎鱼的香气在清爽的海风四散开来,尚可从海里冒出脑袋,冲着秦渊的方向闻了闻,随即露出一副笑眯眯的样子。

The scent of the pan fried fish scattered through the air. Shang Ke emerged out of the water and sniffed in Qin Yuan’s direction, then beamed widely.

    接着,他又沉入海中,一阵白浪翻过,再出现时,他已经变成了一名俊美的青年。

He then submerged himself again. After a wave, he reappeared again in the form of a young man.

    动作利落地爬上夹板,尚可随手扯过毛巾围在腰间,湿漉漉的头发不断有水珠落下,洒在白皙的皮肤上,如同细小的钻石,在阳光下闪闪发光。他胸口的那朵红色印记,犹如燃烧的火焰,为清灵的他增添了几分妖艳之色。

He agilely climbed up the ladder and pulled a towel to tie around his waist. Drops of water continued to fall from his wet hair and onto his skin like small diamonds shining in the sun. The Flaming Sky Flower remained on his chest like a blaze of flame and added to his attraction.

    秦渊揽过他的腰,在他唇上落下一吻,舌尖立刻传来海水的咸苦味。手指滑过肌肉均匀的大腿,缓缓探入毛巾中。

Qin Yuan tugged him close by the waist and kissed him. The salty and slightly bitter taste of the ocean filled his mouth. His finger slowly glided down Shang Ke’s evenly muscled thigh and under the towel.

    尚可推开他,从旁边的果盘中捻起一颗小果实塞进他嘴里:“吃饭。”

Shang Ke pushed him aside and plucked a fruit off the plate next to him, stuffing it into Qin Yuan’s mouth, “Let’s eat.”

    说完,他转身走进船舱,从里面拿出一个保温瓶,里面盛着他给秦渊煲的营养汤。

He headed for the ship cabin and took out a thermos bottle which held Qin Yuan’s nutrition soup that he made.

    因为长期失眠,饮食不振,秦渊的身体处于亚健康状态,尝尝胃痛,体重也下降了许多,每天顶着一张蜡黄憔悴的脸,成功引起了尚可满满的“父爱”。

Due to Qin Yuan’s long-term insomnia and lack of appetite, his health was in a rather terrible state. He would often have stomach aches and his weight was below what it was before. Everyday, his face was pale and wan. All of this thoroughly triggered Shang Ke’s ‘paternal love’.

    之后,秦渊的饮食作息,全部都由尚可负责,即使出海游玩,也不忘捎上一盅营养汤,势必要将某人养得膘肥体壮,光彩照人。

Following that, Qin Yuan’s schedule was completely overseen by Shang Ke. Even if he wanted to go out to the ocean to play, Shang Ke did not forget to bring the nutrition soup with him. He had to raise a certain someone until he was back to peak health and full of splendor.

    秦渊一边喝汤一边看尚可吃鱼,一副“煎鱼看起来很好吃,能不能给我吃一条”的渴求模样。

While Qin Yuan drank his soup, he watched Shang Ke eat the fish he made. His face showed ‘That looks really good, can I have some?’

    煎炸类食物都在尚可的健康食谱之外,秦渊只能看,只能闻,不能吃。

Fried foods and so on were all outside of Shang Ke’s nutrition plan for him, so Qin Yuan could only look and not eat.

    尚可不为所动,几下将煎鱼解决,擦擦手,然后端起红酒,戴上墨镜,躺在椅子上,悠哉地晒着日光浴。

Shang Ke remained unmoved as he quickly dealt with the pan fried fish. He wiped his hands, then picked up a glass of red wine, and lied against his chair, sunbathing.

    这享受的小样,看得秦渊心里痒痒的。

This kind of appearance of enjoying life itched at Qin Yuan’s heart.

    他吃饱喝足,放下餐具,随后趁尚可不注意,伸手一拉,将他拉坐在自己腿上。

He finished his own meal and placed down his silverware. Taking the chance while Shang Ke wasn’t paying attention, he pulled him over onto his legs.

    酒杯中红酒洒落出来,尚可还来不及低呼,就被秦渊堵住了。

The red wine splashed out of its glass and Shang Ke didn’t even get the chance to cry out before his mouth was blocked.

    秦渊勾住他的腿,将他侧坐的姿势转为跨坐。尚可立刻感觉下身被顶触,隔着衣物不断磨蹭着他细嫩的皮肤。

Qin Yuan raised one of his legs and turned him from a side position into a straddling one. Shang Ke immediately felt the object below that was constantly rubbing against his tender skin.

    尚可腰上的毛巾从旁边滑落,露出优美的背部线条和结实圆润的臀部。秦渊扯下裤头,露出腿间的狰狞,抬起尚可的臀部,对准入口一点点挤入……

The towel on Shang Ke’s waist slipped from the side, revealing graceful back lines and strong rounded buttocks. Qin Yuan tore off his trousers, exposed the ferocious beast between his legs, and raised Shang Ke’s buttocks. He squeezed in bit by bit at the entrance …

    哗啦一声,海浪冲出水面,仰头望着夹板上叠坐在一起的两人。海豚的听觉十分敏锐,那一阵阵细碎的呻吟和撞击声,在他耳中形成环声立体效果。

With a crash, Waves rushed out of the water and looked up at the two people sitting on the beach chair. A dolphin’s hearing was very sharp, and Waves could make out the ringing sound effects of breathy moans and banging noises.

    海浪往水里沉了沉,只露出一个光溜溜的脑袋,闪闪的小眼睛里满是郁闷。

Waves sank into the water, revealing only a bare head and small sparkling eyes filled with gloom.

    如今已经5岁的他,也到了性成熟的年纪。对于完全无视种族差异的海豚而言,一旦进入发情期,那是非常容易被撩拨的。

Now that he was five years old, he had reached the age of sexual maturity. For dolphins that completely ignored species differences, once they entered a rut, they were easily seduced.

    海浪与拥有人类灵魂的尚可不同,它觉得海豚的身体很完美,交配什么的,也很方便,安全不需要转化。

Waves was different from Shang Ke who had a human soul. He thought a dolphin’s body was perfect. Mating and so on could all be done with their original body, it was convenient and safe.

    海豚这种生物对伴侣的外形没有太高的要求,只要双方愿意,分分钟就能连成一体。不过,单纯的海浪受尚可的影响,暂时还没有点亮四处约炮的技能。但是,如果一直没有找到合适的对象,那就很难说它会不会变成一只名副其实的海“浪”了。

Dolphins were creatures that didn’t have high standards for their mate’s appearance. As long as both sides were willing, they could be connected in minutes. However, due to the influence of Shang Ke, the pure Waves had not become a dolphin that dallied anything and anyone. But if he continues to be unable to find a mate, who knows if he might start living up to his name and start making rounds. 

TL: Waves in chinese is Hai Lang, the lang also means unrestrained.

    一次高潮过去,秦渊还未平复的欲望深深埋在尚可体内,双手抱住他的腰,侧头轻咬着他的耳朵。

After a climax passed, Qin Yuan’s still hard member was deeply buried in Shang Ke’s body. His hands were clasped around the other’s waist while Qin Yuan bit his ear lightly.

    尚可却在此时推开他,指了指海面,说道:“快看,那是不是一艘救生艇?”

Shang Ke pushed him away at this moment, then pointed to the sea and said, “Look, is that a lifeboat?”

    秦渊转头望去,在不远处的海平面上,果然飘着一艘白色的救生艇。

Qin Yuan turned his head and saw a white lifeboat floating nearby.

    “我去看看。”尚可从腿上跨下来,原本密合的部位骤然抽离,缓缓流出粘稠的液体。

“I’ll go and check.” Shang Ke moved away from his erection, and the sudden emptiness of his hole caused slick fluid to leak out.

    尚可双腿一软,秦渊伸手扶住他:“穿上衣服,我开船过去。”

When Shang Ke’s legs buckled, Qin Yuan reached out to hold him, “Put on your clothes and I’ll sail over.”

    尚可点点头,转身走进船舱。

Shang Ke nodded and turned to walk into the cabin.

    秦渊将船开向那艘救生艇,开到近前,发现救生艇上躺着一个女人,不知是死是活。

Qin Yuan drove the boat to the lifeboat and as he drew near, he found a woman lying inside, unknown whether she was dead or alive.

    秦渊先用绳索将救生艇固定,然后和尚可一起将女人移到自己的船上。

Qin Yuan first fixed the lifeboat with ropes and then moved the woman to his own boat with Shang Ke.

    女人大约三十岁上下,容貌姣好,穿着白色的病号服,小腹凸起,看起来像是怀孕了。

The woman was about 30 years old with good looks and wore a white hospital gown. She had a swollen lower abdomen, which made it seem like she was pregnant.

    尚可不动声色地给她把了把脉,确定了怀孕的猜测,而且大概已经有7、8个月身孕了,只是女人身体削瘦,并不是特别显怀。

Shang Ke took her pulse quietly and confirmed her pregnancy. She was about 7 or 8 months along, but due to the woman’s thin frame, her pregnant status did not look too obvious.

    “看她身上的衣服,可能是某个研究机构的实验对象。”秦渊蹙眉沉吟。

“Judging by the clothes she’s wearing, she may be the subject of some research institution.”  Qin Yuan frowned thoughtfully.

    “她情况不太妙,先带回去再说吧。”尚可虽然不想惹麻烦,但也不能见死不救。

“Her condition isn’t too good. Let’s bring her back home first.” Although Shang Ke didn’t want to bring trouble to himself, he couldn’t let her die without helping either.

    秦渊没有异议,开船往回驶去。

Qin Yuan had no objection and sailed back.

    火焰之家与世隔绝,如果这个女人有什么问题,他随时有办法解决。

The Home of Flames was isolated from the world. If this woman had some problems, he could solve them at any time.

    两人将女人带回小岛,但经过两天的治疗,她始终没有醒来,肚中的胎儿倒是发育良好,只是体型有些幼小。

The two brought the woman back to the island, but after two days of treatment, she never woke up. The fetus in her belly was developing well though, even if a bit small.

    秦渊想起前世见到的那些基因突变的婴儿,没出生前一切正常,出生后立刻发生异变。

Qin Yuan remembered the babies with the mutated gene that he saw in his previous life. Everything was normal until they were born when they changed instantly.

    他将这个可能告诉了尚可,尚可想了想,说道:“我曾经全程参与了有关海豚基因的实验,如果胎儿真的会发生异变,我或许有办法解决。”

He told Shang Ke about this possibility. Shang Ke thought for a moment and said, “I have participated in the whole experiment on dolphin genes. If the fetus really transforms, I may have a way to solve it.”

    变异的主要原因是缺少海豚的始祖基因,而且经过多次筛选重组,导致基因变得极不稳定,造就了许多进化失败的变异生命。

The main reason for the mutation was the lack of ancestral genes of dolphins, and after many screenings and recombinations, the genes became more and more unstable, resulting in many mutated lives that failed in evolution.

    海豚基因只有一次转化的机会,一旦选择转化的形态,以后就只能在这两种形态之间平衡转化。如果企图进行多重转化,基因就会崩溃。

Dolphin genes had only one transformation chance. Once their transformation form was chosen, they could only shift between that and their original form. If more forms were attempted, then the gene will collapse.

    海豚可以进化为其他生物,但它们本身是水生哺乳动物,受它的基因所影响的其他生物,只能转化为半人形的水生生物。简而言之,就是人鱼,而且是哺乳类的人鱼。这才是始祖基因最正常、最稳定的进化方向,至于其他变异体,或多或少都存在一定缺陷。

Dolphins could evolve into other organisms, but they were aquatic mammals themselves. Other organisms affected by their genes could only be transformed into semi-human aquatic organisms. In short, a merfolk who was a mammal. This was the most normal and stable evolution that came directly from the original gene. As for other mutants, there would be some defects more or less.

    秦渊见尚可对研究有兴趣,于是为他单独建立了一座实验室,仪器设备都是现成的。之前海豚基因的研究其实已经取得突破,只是被戴普森给破坏了。失去两只活体海豚,人类只能依靠原先存留的实验样品,进行培育繁殖,制造了许多贻害无穷的变异基因。

Qin Yuan saw that Shang Ke was interested in research, so he set up a separate laboratory for him, with all the instruments and equipment readily available. The dolphin gene research had actually made a breakthrough before, but it was only destroyed by Dipson. With the loss of two living dolphins, human beings could only rely on the originally preserved experimental samples to breed and produce a lot of mutant genes which caused endless damage.

    尚可对那名孕妇以及她腹中的胎儿进行了细致的检测,发现胎儿体内确实潜藏着变异基因,不过还没有被激活。如果能够让它们彻底陷入休眠,那么婴儿出生后便不会发生异变了。

Shang Ke conducted careful tests on the pregnant woman and the fetus in her womb, and found that there were indeed mutated genes in the fetus. However, they had not yet been activated. If they could be deactivated completely, the baby would not transform after birth.

    事实上,每种生物的体内都拥有隐藏基因,哪种基因更强大,生物就会表现出哪种状态。

In fact, every organism had hidden genes in its body, and whichever genes were stronger would be the one that was expressed.

    尚可利用技术手段,将自己的基因,融入胎儿体内,重新平衡他的基因构造。只要他的基因能够完全凌驾于变异基因之上,这个孩子应该就能摆脱变异基因所造成的恶果,顺利降生在这个世上。

Shang Ke used technical means to integrate his gene into the fetus and rebalanced his gene structure. As long as his gene could completely override the mutant gene, the child should be able to get rid of the terrible consequences caused by the mutation and be born smoothly into this world.

    只是他的母亲可能再也醒不来了,只能依靠仪器维持生命,至于发生在她身上的不幸,恐怕也将成为永远的谜。

However, its mother may never wake up and could only rely on instruments to maintain her life. As for the misfortune that happened to her, it possibly would become a mystery forever.

    三个月后,孩子出生,果然如尚可所料,没有发生可怕的异变,而是转化成了一只人鱼。

Three months later, the baby was born, and as Shang Ke expected, it did not undergo any terrible changes, but turned into a merfolk.

    秦渊没想到尚可居然如此轻易地就将小人鱼培育出来了,人类极力寻找的解决繁衍危机的方法,就掌握在这只曾经被他们伤害的海豚手中,不得不说,这是对人类急功近利最大的讽刺。

Qin Yuan didn’t expect Shang Ke to breed a merfolk so easily. The solution to the fertility crisis that mankind was trying to find was in the hands of this dolphin that was once hurt by them. He had to say, this was the greatest irony to mankind’s eagerness for quick success and instant benefits.

    看到这只可爱的小人鱼,尚可自然而然想起以前养育过的那几只,于是向秦渊打听他们的情况。

Seeing this lovely little merman, Shang Ke naturally remembered the ones he had raised before and asked Qin Yuan about them.

    秦渊脸色微变,沉默许久才回道:“他们都……夭折了。”

Qin Yuan’s face changed slightly and he was silent for a long time before he answered, “They all … died.”

    “夭折了?”尚可先是惊讶,随后低下头,表情暗淡。

“Died?” Shang Ke was surprised at first, then lowered his head and looked gloomy.

    秦渊怜惜地抱了抱他,声音低沉道:“抱歉,是我能力不够,没有保住他们。”

Qin Yuan held him pityingly and said in a low voice, “I’m sorry, I didn’t have enough ability to keep them alive.”

    何止没有保住他们,若非重生,他甚至连海浪也保住,还将火焰活活困在了冰冷的海底棺材中。

Not only could he not keep them alive, but if he hadn’t time-traveled, he wouldn’t have been able to save Waves and even trapped Flames in a cold coffin on the seafloor.

    想到这里,秦渊的心脏再次抽痛起来。

Thinking to here, Qin Yuan’s heart ached once more.

    尚可见他脸色难看,反而安慰道:“你也别太自责,很多事不是你想做就一定能够做到的。”

Seeing that his face looked pale, Shang Ke comforted him, “Don’t blame yourself too much. There are many things you can’t do even if you want to.”

    他轻轻碰了碰正泡在温水中的小人鱼,认真道:“既然小人鱼选择来到我们身边,说明将他养育成人可能注定要成为我们的责任。”

He touched the little merman that was soaking in warm water and said earnestly, “Since the little merman chose to come to us, raising him into an adult will be our future responsibility.”

    尚可认真的表情,触动了秦渊心中最柔软的部分,让他无法抑制对他的喜爱。

Shang Ke’s earnest expression touched the softest part of Qin Yuan’s heart, making him unable to restrain his love for him.

    “秦渊。”

“Qin Yuan.”

    “嗯?”

“Hmm?”

    “我要做他的爸爸,你以后就做他的妈妈吧?”

“I want to be his father, so you will be his mother?”

    “……”

“……”

    决定小人鱼的归属后,尚可每天大半时间都被小人鱼占据。秦渊只能将这段时间全部用于工作,努力赚钱,为他的爱人提供更舒适的生活和更牢固的保护。

After deciding the surname of the child, Shang Ke spent most of his time taking care of him. Qin Yuan could only spend all of his time working hard to make money and provide his lover with a more comfortable life and stronger protection.

    深夜,尚可回到房间时,发现秦渊还在工作。他走过去环住他的脖子,轻声道:“早点休息吧?”

Late at night, when Shang Ke returned to his room, he found Qin Yuan still working. He went over to encircle his neck and whispered, “Let’s go to bed early?”

    秦渊闻到他身上还带着小人鱼的奶香味,估计刚刚喂过奶。小人鱼的食物是以前实验室配置的奶粉,里面有人奶的成分,很适合人鱼食用。

Qin Yuan smelled the milk the baby merman drank from him and guessed  that he had just been fed. The baby food used was the milk powder previously prepared by the laboratory, which contained milk ingredients that were very suitable for merman.

    尚可拉着秦渊去了浴室,两人拖拖拉拉一两个小时才从里面出来。

Shang Ke took Qin Yuan to the bathroom and the two dragged on for an hour or two before coming out.

    秦渊今天有些疲倦,难得没有缠缠绵绵,很快便在尚可怀里睡着了。

Qin Yuan was a little tired today and for once did not have any nightly activity thoughts. He soon fell asleep in Shang Ke’s arms.

    自从尚可回来后,他的睡眠质量日渐提升,如今已经能够正常入睡。

Since Shang Ke came back, his sleep quality had been improving day by day and he was now able to sleep normally.

    半夜时,尚可被一阵急促的呼吸吵醒,循声望去,发现秦渊表情痛苦,全身冷汗淋漓,嘴里发出呢喃不清的呓语,好像正在什么可怕的恶梦。

In the middle of the night, Shang Ke was woken up by a shortness of breath and looked to the side. He found Qin Yuan’s expression was painful, and his whole body was dripping with cold sweat. His mouth uttered inarticulate words as if he were having some terrible nightmare.

    “秦渊,秦渊。”尚可一边轻唤他的名字,一边用手擦拭他额头上的冷汗。

“Qin Yuan, Qin Yuan.” Shang Ke called out as he wiped the sweat gathering on his forehead.

    “火焰,火焰……”秦渊的身体突然剧烈地痉挛起来,脸上满是惊恐。

“Flames, Flames…” Qin Yuan suddenly started violently jerking as his face was filled with fear.

    “我在这里,秦渊,你怎么了?醒醒!”尚可紧紧抱住他,虽然不明白他在恐惧什么,但还是尽可能地用自己的方式安慰他。

“I am here. Qin Yuan, what’s wrong? Wake up!” Shang Ke hugged him tightly. Although he didn’t know what he was fearing, he still tried his best to comfort him in his own way.

    秦渊感受到他的气息,痉挛的幅度逐渐减小,最后终于平静下来,靠在尚可怀里,低喃道:“对不起,火焰,对不起……”

Qin Yuan felt his familiar presence and his twitching gradually subsided before finally stopping. As he leaned into Shang Ke’s embrace, he whispered repeatedly, “I’m sorry, Flames, I’m sorry…”

    一滴液体从秦渊眼角滑落,多年的恐惧,一直折磨着他的精神,即使重新找回火焰,这种恐惧也无法立刻消除,更何况他还背负着将火焰生生困死在棺材中的罪恶感。

A tear slid down Qin Yuan’s face. The many years of fear that tormented his spirit couldn’t be so easily dispersed even though he got Flames back. Plus, he even bore the guilt of thinking he had caged Flames in the coffin the entire time.

    尚可不明就里,只能不停安慰:“你没有对不起我,从来没有……”

Shang Ke didn’t understand the whole situation, so he could only gently comfort him, “You didn’t do anything that let me down, you never did…” 

    秦渊听着熟悉的声音,如同孩子一般,带着还未完全消散的惊惧,沉沉睡去……

Qin Yuan listened to his familiar voice, soft like a child and still carrying an underlying tone of alarm. He fell into a deep slumber.
