Chapter 169: Ghost Assistant (I)


TL: Resonance

    尚可闭着眼睛站在系统空间,捂着温暖的胸口,感觉这里被幸福填得满满的。与爱人在一起经历的点点滴滴,都被他清晰地记在脑中,然后化作无限的动力,继续去下一个世界寻找他。

Shang Ke stood in the system space with closed eyes while holding on to his warm chest. He felt that his heart was filled with happiness. Everything that he has experienced with his lover was all remembered clearly by him. They become his unlimited strength as he looks for him in the next world.

    【下一个世界为困难模式,请宿主做好准备。】

【The next world is difficult mode. Host, please be prepared.】

    系统提醒的声音打断了尚可的思路。

The System’s reminding voice interrupted Shang Ke’s thoughts

    “开始吧。”尚可没有犹豫,跨出百炼空间,迎接新的挑战。

“Let’s start.” Shang Ke didn’t hesitate. He left the Hundred Training space to meet his new challenge. 

    空间一阵波动,尚可很快被传送到另一个世界。

The space fluctuated and Shang Ke was transported to another world.

    睁开眼,首先看到的是一张血淋淋的女人脸,眼睛里没有眼珠,只有两个黑洞洞的窟窿,几股粘稠的液体正缓缓从窟窿里流出来。

Opening his eyes, the first thing he saw was a bloodied woman’s face. There were no eyes in her eye sockets and two empty cavities could be seen. Sticky liquid was slowly flowing out of the eye socket.

    “啊!”尚可被吓得向后蹿去,直接将大半个身体没入了墙壁中。

“Ah!” Shang Ke jumped backwards in shock, instantly plunging half his body into the wall.

    他的胆子并不小,只是毫无预兆地看到一只面目狰狞的女鬼,再强悍的神经也有些受不了。

He wasn’t timid. However, no matter how mentally tough he was, he still couldn’t take it when he had to see a hideous female ghost without warning.

    女鬼睨着他,用阴森森的声音说道:“都是鬼,用得着这么大惊小怪吗?”

The female ghost looked askance at him and spoke with a spooky voice, “We are both ghosts, is there a need to make such a huge fuss?”

    说完,她便自顾自地飘走了。

After saying so, she floated away on her own pace.

    尚可这才有空查看自己的情况,发现他此刻有一半身体隐没在墙壁中,只露出一个脑袋和半截手脚。很明显,他目前是灵体状态,更准确的说,是一个鬼魂。

Shang Ke was finally free to check his own situation. He realised that half of his body was currently within the wall, with only his head and half of his limbs exposed. He was obviously in a spiritual state now. More specifically, he was a ghost.

    【主线任务——三个月内复活。】

【Main mission: Revive within three months.】

    尚可:“抱歉,你刚才说什么?复活?”

Shang Ke: “Sorry, what did you just say? Revive?”

    【是的,三个月内复活。】

【Yes. Revive within three months.】

    “系统,你是不是中病毒了?我任务是赴死,你现在让我复活?这么矛盾的任务让我怎么完成?!”

“System, are you infected with a virus? My mission is to die heroically and now you’re asking me to revive? How am I supposed to complete such a contradictory mission?!”

    【活了可以死,死了也可以活。】

【If you’re alive, you can die. If you’re dead, you can still live.】

    尚可:“……系统,你出来,我保证不弄死你。”

Shang Ke: “… System, come out. I promise I won’t kill you.”

    按照尚可的理解,鬼魂复活大概有三种方法,一是找替死鬼,换取投胎转世的机会;二是强行夺舍;三是借尸还魂。

Based on Shang Ke’s understanding, there were three ways a ghost can revive. First, he could find a scapegoat in exchange for the chance to reincarnate. Second, he could forcefully take over someone’s body. Third, he could enter the body of someone who just died and revive.

    正想着,只听系统又补充:【复活禁忌:1.不允许找替死鬼;2.不允许抢夺活人的躯体;3.借尸还魂不能借寿终正寝者、重伤不治者的尸体。】

Just as he was thinking about it, he heard the system adding: 【Revival restrictions: 1) Not allowed to find a scapegoat; 2) Not allowed to forcefully take over someone’s body; 3) Cannot enter the body of someone who is at the end of their life due to old age or a body of someone who is seriously wounded and cannot be saved.】

    不允许找替死鬼和抢夺活人躯体,这个可以理解,因为与系统的英勇原则相悖,但借尸还魂为什么也有那么多限制?

He could understand why he wasn’t allowed to find a scapegoat or forcefully take over someone’s body. After all, the principle contradicts the heroic death system. However, why are there so many restrictions for entering a dead person’s body?

    【附身寿终正寝者,将直接判定为任务失败(任务前提之一,不得善终);俯身重伤不治者,将成为没有生命体征的活死人,不符合任务要求。】

【Entering the body of someone who is at the end of his life would directly be judged as a mission failure (One of the conditions for the mission, you may not have a good end); If you enter a body that is seriously wounded and cannot be saved, you will become a living dead with no vital signs. This doesn’t satisfy the mission requirement.】

    尚可没话说了。

Shang Ke had nothing to say.

    【特别提醒,鬼魂可被符咒、术法、辟邪之物等手段或器物杀死,请宿主注意安全。】

【Special reminder: Ghosts can be killed by talismans, spells, items and weapons that ward off evil spirits. Host, please be careful.】

    尚可:“……”

Shang Ke: “…”

    接着,系统开始给他传输这个世界的资料。

Then, the system started transmitting him this world’s information.

    这是一颗名为“极光”的星球,科技发达,世界和平,平民生活普遍富足,娱乐行业兴兴向荣,艺术风气十分浓厚。极光星人大多不信神魔鬼怪,一切灵异事件都有相应的科学解释。当然,不相信不代表不存在。只是阴阳相隔,活着的人很难接触到鬼魂的世界。只有极少数人,才拥有沟通阴阳的能力。但在科技发达的时代,这类人基本都隐没在芸芸众生之中,鲜为人知。

This planet was known as “Aurora”. Technology was very developed and the world was at peace. The commoners’ lives were generally prosperous, the entertainment industry was flourishing and the arts were strong. Most of the people in Aurora didn’t believe in gods, demons and ghosts. All supernatural events had their corresponding scientific explanations. Of course, not believing didn’t mean it didn’t exist. However, the living people and the dead were separated. It was difficult for the people who were alive to come into contact with the world of ghosts. Only very few people had the ability to communicate with them. But in this technological age, these types of people were basically living in the midst of all the others and were rarely known by others.

    尚可穿越的鬼魂,身份不详,死亡原因不详,死亡时间不详。晚上可化为实体显形,可用意念移动物体,不惧阳光,但不能过度暴晒。

Shang Ke had transmigrated into a ghost with unknown identity, reason of death and time of death. He could manifest himself at night and could move objects through telekinesis. He wasn’t afraid of the sun, but he couldn’t be exposed to it for too long.

    除此之外,再没有多余的资料,也就是说,尚可现在要做的,就是找一具合适的尸体复活。

Apart from this, he didn’t have any other information. In other words, what Shang Ke had to do now was to find a suitable corpse to revive in.

    不能找寿终正寝和重伤不治,那就只能选择猝死或者机械性窒息死亡之类的目标,而且必须在对方刚刚死亡时立刻俯身。

Since he couldn’t use the body of someone who was at the end of his life or someone who was seriously injured and couldn’t be saved, he could only choose someone who had a sudden death or someone who died from mechanical asphyxiation etc as his target. In addition, he must enter the body immediately after the person had just died.

    虽说每天都有人死亡,但想要在准确的时间找到符合要求的“新鲜”尸体并不容易。

Although there were people dying every day, finding a “fresh” corpse that met the requirement at the right timing wasn’t easy.

    尚可飘出他所在的大楼,眼前是一座繁华的大都市,一辆辆飞车从空中穿梭而过,留下一道道炫目的光影。纵横交错的街道之间,高楼林立,大大小小各种光屏,循环播放着影视图像和创意广告。

Shang Ke floated out of the building he was in. What appeared before him was a flourishing metropolis. Flying cars could be seen passing by in the air while leaving behind a dazzling trail of light. There were many skyscrapers between the crisscrossing streets and large and small light screens displayed film images, TV show images and advertisements in a loop.

    尚可飘在城市上空,四下扫视,并没有发现其他鬼魂的踪影,他们大概都不喜欢在白天出来活动。

Shang Ke floated above the city and looked around him. He didn’t see traces of other ghosts. They probably didn’t like coming out in the day.

    正在思索间,一阵悦耳的钢琴声突然从不远处的光屏中传来。尚可循声望去,只见屏幕上,一名身穿礼服的男子,正坐一架黑色钢琴前,神色专注地弹奏着曲子。他身姿优雅,气质冷冽,仿佛独立于这个世界,完全沉浸在自己的演奏中。

As he was thinking, the pleasant sound of a piano suddenly sounded from the screen not far away. Shang Ke looked towards the source and saw on the screen a man in formal attire sitting in front of a black piano. The man was playing a musical piece very focusedly. His posture was elegant and he had a cold temperament. It was as if he was the only person in the world as he fully immersed himself in his own music.

    几乎只是一眼,尚可便认出了他。

It only took one glance for Shang Ke to recognize him. 

    邵飞渡——这是他在这个世界的名字。

Shao Feidu—This was his name in this world.

    尚可精神一振,快速飞进一家网吧,上网搜索邵飞渡的信息。5721年9月出生,今年28岁,拥有惊人的音乐天赋,7岁获得国际青少年钢琴大赛的冠军,14岁举办世界循环钢琴演奏会,16岁获得国际荣耀艺术勋章,特聘为国际音乐协会委员。25岁时,已经成为世界公认的钢琴大师。

Shang Ke’s spirit rose. He quickly flew into an internet cafe and browsed the internet to search for information regarding Shao Feidu. He was born in September 5721 and was 28 years old this year. He had amazing musical talent: he won the international youth piano competition at the age of 7, held piano concerts around the world at the age of 14, obtained the international medal of art at the age of 16 and was appointed as a member of the International Music Association. At the age of 25, he had become a world renowned piano master.

    不过26岁后,邵飞渡突然就销声匿迹了,拒绝参加所有演出,人也不知去向。

However, Shao Feidu suddenly disappeared from the scene when he was 26 years old. He refused to participate in all performances and no one knew where he went.

    尚可循着线索,先找到邵飞渡的经纪人慕祯,然后通过他,在一座环境清幽的别墅中找到了他要找的人。

Shang Ke followed the lead and first found Shao Feidu’s manager, Mu Zhen. Through him, Shang Ke found the person he wanted to find in a villa at a quiet area.

    在一间将近两百平的钢琴室中,邵飞渡独自坐在铺满乐谱的地板上,手里拿着纸笔,时而思索,时而书写,一副心无旁骛的模样。

In a piano room that was around 200 meter square big, Shao Feidu was sitting alone on the floor full of music sheets. He was holding onto a pen and a piece of paper, sometimes thinking and sometimes writing. He looked very focused.

    尚可悄无声息地飘过去,蹲在他身边,看他进行音乐创作。

Shang Ke floated over quietly. He squatted beside him and watched him composing music.

    邵飞渡动作一顿,面部肌肉紧绷,眼睛直直盯着手上的纸张,整个人处于僵直状态。

Shao Feidu’s movement paused. His facial muscle was stiff and he stared straight at the paper in his hand. His whole body had turned rigid.

    尚可并没有发现他的异常,只是见他久久不动,忍不住奇怪地问了一句:“怎么了?”

Shang Ke didn’t notice this anomaly. However, Shang Ke couldn’t help but ask in confusion when he noticed that Shao Feidu hadn’t been moving for awhile. “What happened?”

    邵飞渡突然站起身,快步朝钢琴室外走去。

Shao Feidu suddenly stood up and walked quickly out of the piano room.

    尚可连忙跟在他身后。

Shang Ke hurriedly followed behind him.

    门外的助理吉布见到邵飞渡出来,便问道:“渡少,有什么吩咐?”

Assistant Gibbs, who was outside the door, saw Shao Feidu coming out, so he asked, “Young Master Du, do you have any commands?”

    邵飞渡一语不发地走到客厅的沙发坐下,顺手打开3d屏幕。

Shao Feidu did not say anything. He walked to the living room and sat down on the sofa, switching on the 3D screen at the same time.

    尚可顺势坐在他身边,和他一起看电视。

Shang Ke sat beside him and watched TV with him.

    吉布给邵飞渡倒了一杯热茶,随后回头看了看屏幕,上面正在播放无厘头的综艺节目。他不禁有些疑惑,渡少什么时候对这种综艺节目感兴趣了?

Gibbs poured Shao Feidu a cup of hot tea. Then, he looked back towards the screen. It was currently broadcasting a slapstick variety show. He couldn’t help but wonder. Since when was young master Du interested in this kind of variety show?

    不过他也没有多问,因为邵飞渡患有轻微自闭症,平时少言寡语,性格孤僻,除了音乐,眼中再也容不下其他东西。

However, he didn’t ask about it. Shao Feidu was suffering from mild autism. He didn’t speak much and was unsociable. There was nothing else in his eyes other than music.

    十分钟后,尚可看向身边的男人:“这样坐着不累吗?喝口茶,吃个水果吧?”

Ten minutes later, Shang Ke looked towards the man by his side, “Aren’t you tired sitting like this? How about drinking some tea and having some fruits?”

    邵飞渡目不斜视,端坐如山。

Shao Feidu continued looking forward and sat still like a mountain.

    尚可很无聊,伸手戳向邵飞渡的拳头,但手指却直接从他的拳头上穿过去了。不知道是不是错觉,尚可似乎看到他手背上的青筋暴突了几下。

Shang Ke was very bored. He stretched his hand over to poke Shao Feidu’s fist, but his finger passed through directly. Shang Ke didn’t know if it was just his imagination, but he seemed to have seen the veins on the back of Shao Feidu’s hand twitching.

    难道他能看到自己?尚可抬起手臂在他眼前上下挥舞。

Could he perhaps see me? Shang Ke waved his arm in front of Shao Feidu.

    邵飞渡眼睛都没眨一下。

Shao Feidu didn’t even blink.

    尚可于是又凑到他面前猛做鬼脸,鬼魂的鬼脸可是很凶残的,七窍流血,青面獠牙,仿佛还伴有恐怖的音效。

Hence, Shang Ke went in front of him and suddenly made a scary face. A ghost’s scary face was very brutal. Blood flowed out of the seven orifices on his head, his face turned green and he had sharp teeth. It was as if his face was followed by a scary sound effect.

    邵飞渡绷着脸,浑身僵直,一滴冷汗悄然从额角滑落。

Shao Feidu’s face tensed and his whole body stiffened. A drop of cold sweat slipped down quietly from his forehead.

    “你觉得我长得帅吗?”尚可一字一顿地问。

“Do you think that I’m handsome?” Shang Ke asked word for word.

    邵飞渡:“……”

Shao Feidu: “…”

    额头上的冷汗开始成群结队地流。

The sweat on his forehead was starting to flow in large numbers.

    “你再不说话,我就把我的脸撕下来,盖在你的脸上。”尚可鬼气森森地威胁。

“If you don’t speak, I will tear off my face and cover it over your face.” Shang Ke threatened sinisterly.

    邵飞渡依然不语。

Shao Feidu was still silent.

    尚可将手放在头顶:“我真的撕了?”

Shang Ke placed his hands on top of his head and said, “I will tear now?”

    邵飞渡的眉头抽搐了几下,眼神涣散,没有焦距。

Shao Feidu’s eyebrows twitched a few times and his eyes lost focus. 

    从刚才到现在,他连一个正眼也没有留给尚可,这让尚可很不开心。

He hadn’t looked at Shang Ke directly from start to end. This made Shang Ke very unhappy.

    “明明看得见,为什么装作看不见?”尚可突然把头掰下来,猛地往邵飞渡身上一扔。

“You can clearly see me, why do you pretend that you can’t?” Shang Ke suddenly took his head down and threw it strongly towards Shao Feidu.

    邵飞渡一弹而起,僵着身体朝助理走去。

Shao Feidu jumped up from his seat and walked stiffly towards his assistant.

    吉布正在电脑前整理文档,冷不丁见邵飞渡凶神恶煞地走过来,吓得连忙站起来。

Gibbs was organising the documents in the computer. He stood up quickly in shock as Shao Feidu suddenly walked over with a fierce expression.

    邵飞渡走到他身边,一动不动地站着。

Shao Feidu walked towards his side and just stood there unmovingly.

    “渡,渡少,怎么了?”吉布战战兢兢地问。

“Young, Young Master Du, what’s wrong?” Gibbs asked while trembling in fear.

    邵飞渡将近200公分的身高,站在170公分的吉布面前,就像一座巍峨的大山,光靠阴影就能让他不见天日。

Shao Feidu was almost 200cm tall. He was like a majestic tall mountain when he stood before the 170cm Gibbs. Just his shadow alone could block Gibbs from seeing the light.

    对于吉布的问题,邵飞渡像是没听见一般,只是直挺挺地杵在那里。

It was as if Shao Feidu didn’t hear Gibbs’ question. He just stood straight there.

    尚可捡起自己的头,将它举到吉布面前,开口道:“你告诉渡少,如果他再装作看不见我,我就把你吃掉。”

Shang Ke picked up his head and raised it in front of Gibbs. He said, “Tell young master Du that I will eat you if he continues pretending that he can’t see me.”

    吉布完全不知道有一颗人头就在他鼻子前,并用两只血淋淋的眼睛瞪着他。

Gibbs had no idea that there was a head right before his nose staring at him with two bloody eyes.

    邵飞渡嘴唇挪动了几下,还是没有说出话来。

Shao Feidu’s lips moved a few times, but he still didn’t speak.

    吉布站也不是,坐也不是,尴尬得要命。更让人痛苦的是,邵飞渡就像一个移动冷柜,寒气森森,冻得他手脚发麻。这种情况已经不止一次了,无论房间的暖气开多大,只要这个男人一靠近,温度立马直线下降。

Gibbs didn’t know whether to stand or sit and felt extremely awkward. What’s even worse was that Shao Feidu was like a mobile freezer. He was so chilling, Gibbs’ hands and feet went numb from the cold. This wasn’t the first time this happened. No matter how strong the heater in the room was, the temperature would immediately drop the moment this man approached.

    吉布暗暗决定,下个月就把工作辞了,再这样下去,他早晚会因为神经衰弱而疯掉。以前之所以选择做邵飞渡的助理,不仅因为薪资优厚,还因为邵飞渡的名气。但自从邵飞渡两年前手指受伤,再也无法演出后,吉布便开始懈怠起来。

Gibbs secretly decided that he would quit the next month. If this went on, he would soon go crazy due to the mental stress. The reason why he had chosen to be Shao Feidu’s assistant back then wasn’t only due to the high salary but also due to Shao Feidu’s fame. However, ever since Shao Feidu injured his fingers two years ago and could no longer perform, Gibbs had started slacking off.

    叮咚叮咚……正在这时,吉布的手机闹铃突然响起,他几乎喜极而泣,看看时间,急促地说道:“渡少,阿姨马上会送晚餐过来,我就先走了。”

Ding dong ding dong. At this moment, Gibbs’ phone alarm suddenly started ringing. He almost cried in joy. He looked at the time and said hurriedly, “Young master Du, the auntie will be bringing dinner over soon. I will leave first.”

    说完,吉布快速收拾好自己的东西,然后如风一般地冲出了别墅。吉布这种无礼的行为若换做其他雇主,估计早就被怒斥了。但患有自闭症的邵飞渡,即使被人轻慢,也很少将愤怒表现出来。

After saying so, Gibbs quickly packed his stuff and rushed out of the villa like wind. Gibbs would have long been scolded for this kind of rude behaviour if it were other employers. However, Shao Feidu, who was suffering from autism, rarely showed his anger even if he was treated inappropriately by others.

    尚可也察觉到几分异常,重新将头安好,脸也不青了,血也不流了,声音也不阴森了,形象极其唯美地对邵飞渡说:“我不吓你了,我们来做朋友吧?”

Shang Ke also noticed something strange. He placed his head back, his face was no longer green nor bleeding and his voice wasn’t sinister. He said to Shao Feidu while looking extremely beautiful, “I won’t scare you anymore. Let’s be friends?”
