Chapter 172: Ghost Assistant (IV)


TL: Resonance

    第二天,吉布还真的让人在别墅内装上了监控,以后邵飞渡的生活日常都将暴露在监控之下。

The next day, Gibbs really asked someone to install cameras in the villa. From now on, Shao Feidu’s daily life is all exposed to the camera. 

    尚可想要毁掉这些监控并不难,但这只是治标不治本,图一时之快而已。最好的办法就是将慕祯赶走,让他没有机会再控制邵飞渡的生活。

Shang Ke can destroy the cameras easily, but it doesn’t solve the root cause of the problem and offers only a moment of freedom. The best solution is to drive Mu Zhen away and don’t allow him the chance to control Shao Feidu’s life.

    但是以邵飞渡目前的状态,他恐怕无法独立处理这件事。尚可首先想到了邵飞渡的父亲,不知道他们的关系怎么样,至今为止也没见他们过来看望一下或者问候一声,难道一点都不关心这个儿子过得好不好?

However, Shao Feidu was probably unable to settle this issue on his own judging by his current condition. The first thing Shang Ke thought of was Shao Feidu’s father. He didn’t know what their relationship was like. Up until now, he hasn’t seen him coming over to visit or sending his regards. Doesn’t he care whether his son is living well or not?

    为了获得有用的信息,尚可决定亲自去邵家查探情况。结果这一查,立刻让他明白邵飞渡如今的处境。

To obtain more useful information, Shang Ke decided to visit the Shao family personally to check on the situation. After his investigation, he immediately understood Shao Feidu’s current situation.

    邵家是北都豪门,邵飞渡的父亲邵启东是邵家的家主。此人颇有商业才能,但十分花心,先后娶过三位妻子。邵启东的第一任妻子便是邵飞渡的母亲,她是一位钢琴家,在她的耳濡目染下,邵飞渡也对音乐产生了浓厚的兴趣,并且表现出惊人的天赋。

The Shao family is a very rich family in the northern capital. Shao Feidu’s father, Shao Qidong, is the head of the Shao family. This person has business talent, but is very fickle and has married three wives successively. Shao Qidong’s first wife was Shao Feidu’s mother and she was a pianist. Under her influence, Shao Feidu grew a strong interest in music and displayed amazing talent.

    可惜好景不长,邵飞渡的母亲在他10岁时,死于一场车祸。从那时开始,邵飞渡开始出现自闭倾向。不过在医生治疗下,情况逐渐好转,直到邵启东再婚,邵飞渡从此多了一位继母和一个7岁的弟弟。

Unfortunately, good times didn’t last long. Shao Feidu’s mother died in a car accident when he was 10 years old. Ever since then, Shao Feidu started showing autistic tendencies. However, his condition gradually got better under the doctor’s treatment. All this lasted until Shao Qidong remarried. From then on, Shao Feidu had a stepmother and a 7 years old younger brother.

    这位“继母”是邵启东养在外面的女人之一,“弟弟”也是他的亲生骨肉。这样的女人和孩子,还不知道有多少,只是没有正名而已。

This “stepmother” was one of the women Shao Qidong kept outside. The “younger brother” was also his real flesh and blood. There were still plenty of such women and children, they just didn’t have an official name.

    所以对于一个钟情于音乐的儿子,邵启东真的不在乎。特别是他再婚后,邵飞渡的自闭倾向又严重了,比起其他聪明伶俐的弟弟妹妹,邵飞渡完全没有培养的价值。

Therefore, Shao Qidong really didn’t care about the son who only loves music. It was especially so after he remarried and Shao Feidu’s autistic tendencies got worse. There was no value in training Shao Feidu when comparing him to his smarter younger brother and sister. 

    在邵飞渡14岁举办第一次世界巡回演出时,邵启东与第二任妻子离婚,娶了现在的妻子。之后,他又为邵飞渡聘请了一位新的经纪人,让他照顾邵飞渡的生活和学习,从此对他不问不闻。

When Shao Feidu had his first world tour performance at age 14, Shao Qidong divorced his second wife and married his current wife. After that, he hired a new manager for Shao Feidu and let him take care of Shao Feidu’s life and studies. From then on, he no longer asked about Shao Feidu.

    这位经纪人便是慕祯。

That manager is Mu Zhen.

    邵启东在外面少说有十几个孩子,根本没有多余的精力关心邵飞渡。而慕祯也算聪明,在生活方面没有亏待邵飞渡,至少在外人面前,他做得很好,所以邵启东对他也很放心。至于邵飞渡这些年的收支情况,他完全没理会过。

Shao Qidong has at least 10 children kept outside, he had no extra energy to care about Shao Feidu at all. Mu Zhen is also very smart. He didn’t treat Shao Feidu badly in his daily life aspect. At the very least, he had done well in front of outsiders. Therefore, Shao Qidong felt at ease about him. He didn’t care about Shao Feidu’s income and expenditure at all.

    很显然,走邵启东这条线是没戏了。而邵飞渡母亲那边的亲戚,基本都在国外,这些年鲜有来往。

It is clear that he can’t depend on Shao Qidong. Shao Feidu’s relatives on his mother’s side are all overseas and didn’t have much contact these years.

    尚可觉得这是他男人混得最惨的一个世界,豪门出身,家财过亿,在国际上声名赫赫,然而,却生活在别人的掌控中,成为了他们赚钱的工具。

Shang Ke felt that this was the world his man had it the worst. He was born in a rich family with wealth more than billions and was also internationally renowned. However, his life was controlled by someone and he became their money-making tool.

    尚可决定将复活的任务缓一缓,先处理邵飞渡的事情。

Shang Ke decided to put aside his reviving mission and settle Shao Feidu’s matters first.

    他着重调查了一下慕祯的财务状况和业务往来,发现他以邵飞渡的名义投资了好几个项目。大部分项目都在国外,这样有利于他掩人耳目。

He investigated Mu Zhen’s financial situation and business dealings and found out that he had invested in several projects using Shao Feidu’s name. Most of the projects are overseas which can help him conceal this from others. 

    尚可偷偷钻进他的保险柜,将几份重要资料给藏了起来,又篡改了邮件内容,让他与投资公司之间发生纠纷。

Shang Ke secretly went into his safe and hid some of the important documents. Then, he went to tamper with the email content to make Mu Zhen have disputes with the investment company.

    作为一只能够使用意念力的厉鬼而言,完成这些事并不困难。普通鬼魂一般只能制造幻觉和鬼气,而且记忆受损,智力不全,不可能像尚可这样,展开有计划的行动。

As a vengeful ghost that can use telekinesis, it wasn’t difficult to accomplish these things. A normal ghost was usually only able to create illusions and ghost energy. Also, some of their memories are lost and they weren’t fully intelligent. They are unable to complete such planned actions like Shang Ke.

    如尚可意料的那般,慕祯因为投资的事情,匆匆出国了。

Mu Zhen went overseas hastily due to the investment issues just like how Shang Ke has expected.

    剩下吉布和保姆就好办了,前者本来就打算辞职,装了监控后,他干脆不来别墅了。

Gibbs and the housemaid who were left are easy to handle. The former had intentions to quit anyway. After installing the cameras, he simply stopped coming to the villa.

    至于保姆阿姨,尚可小施手段,让她摔伤了一只手臂,她倒是不含糊,赖在医院,名正言顺的消极怠工,反正工资照拿,她也乐得清闲。

As for the housemaid, Shang Ke played some small tricks on her and caused her to break an arm. She took advantage of the situation to stay in the hospital and slack from work with a justified reason. She was still receiving her salary anyway and she was happy to rest.

    如果慕祯还在国内,必然会给邵飞渡另外请一个保姆,可惜他出国了,吉布和保姆对邵飞渡都不上心,加上尚可阻截了他们的通讯,一个以为保姆还在照顾邵飞渡,一个以为那边安排了新人,一时间,邵飞渡真的成了没人看管的可怜孩子。

If Mu Zhen was still in this country, he certainly would have hired another housemaid for Shao Feidu. Unfortunately, he was overseas. Both Gibbs and the housemaid didn’t pay much attention to Shao Feidu and Shang Ke also blocked their communication. One thought that the housemaid was still taking care of Shao Feidu while the other thought that the other had hired someone. All of a sudden, Shao Feidu really became a pitiful child that no one was looking after.

    尚可的主要目的,是利用这段时间,尝试对邵飞渡进行引导治疗。他这两天看过邵飞渡从小到大的所有视频,他的情况出现过几次起伏。三岁之前的生活视频一切正常,三岁之后开始变得沉默寡言,估计是因为他可以看到鬼,并且开始意识到鬼魂的可怕和自己的异常。于是他的母亲教他学习音乐,弹奏钢琴,状况逐渐好转。

Shang Ke’s main purpose in doing this was to make use of this period of time to try and give Shao Feidu guided treatment. For the past two days, he had watched all videos of Shao Feidu from young to adult. There had been a few ups and downs to his condition. The videos of him when he was before 3 years old were all normal. He became more reticent after 3 years old, presumably because he can see ghosts. He started realising the scariness of ghosts and his own abnormality. Hence, his mother taught him music. His condition gradually became better as he played the piano.

    几年后,母亲意外身亡,他又变得孤僻冷漠,经过治疗,情况稍有改善,结果他父亲再婚,还带回了一个弟弟。从那之后,他们家录制的生活视频中,再也没有出现过他的身影,显然那位继母并不待见他,他在家中变成可有可无的存在。

A few years laters, his mother died in an accident. He started becoming lonely and indifferent again. After receiving treatment, his condition improved slightly. However, his father remarried and even brought home a younger brother. From then on, his figure no longer appeared in the daily life videos recorded by the family. It was obvious that the stepmother didn’t like him. He became an unessential existence in the family.

    不久之后,慕祯出现了,成为了他的经纪人,接管了他的一切,他离开邵家,从此没有人在乎他喜欢什么,讨厌什么,想要什么,害怕什么。

Soon after, Mu Zhen appeared and became his manager. Mu Zhen took over everything of his and he left the Shao family. From then on, no one cared about what he likes, hates, wants and what he was afraid of.

    “以后由我来照顾你。”尚可抱了抱邵飞渡的肩膀。

“I will take care of you from now on.” Shang Ke hugged Shao Feidu’s shoulders.

    他暂时没有破坏别墅里的监控,但他可以随时屏蔽信号,绝对不会让别人看到不该看的画面,比如邵飞渡完美的裸体。

He didn’t destroy the cameras in the villa for the time being, but he can block the signals anytime he wants. He definitely wouldn’t let someone see something that shouldn’t be seen, such as Shao Feidu’s perfect naked body.

    他为邵飞渡重新制定了生活计划。7点起床,外出晨跑,吃早餐,弹钢琴。12点吃午餐,午休,健身,弹钢琴,18点吃晚餐,然后出去散步。

He created a new daily schedule for Shao Feidu. Wake up at 7, go out for a morning run, have breakfast and play the piano. Have lunch at 12, afternoon rest, fitness and play the piano. Have dinner at 6, then go out for a walk.

    第一次晨跑,尚可费了好大的劲,才把他哄出门,更准确地说,应该是被他吓出去的。因为劝不动,尚可最后一言不合就把自己的头掰了下来,往邵飞渡身上扔。

For the first morning run, it took Shang Ke a lot of effort before he managed to coax Shao Feidu out of the door. To be exact, he had scared Shao Feidu out of the house. Since persuasion didn’t work, Shang Ke took down his head and threw it at Shao Feidu.

    邵飞渡抱着尚可的头,脚步错乱地跑出了别墅。奇怪的是,明明吓得脸色惨白,他竟然也没有把尚可的头扔掉。

Shao Feidu carried Shang Ke’s head and ran out of the villa in a panic. The strange thing is, he is clearly scared and his face has turned pale from fear, but he didn’t throw Shang Ke’s head away.

    尚可身首分离地追了他几百米,直到把头从他怀里夺回来,才带着他在环境优美的花园中慢跑。

Shang Ke chased after Shao Feidu for a few hundred metres without his head before snatching his head back from Shao Feidu’s hands. Then, he brought Shao Feidu along for a jog in the beautiful garden.

    回到别墅,尚可会为他准备热腾腾的早餐,然后陪他一起弹钢琴,创造新曲。晚上,尚可等邵飞渡睡着后,就会出去寻找“新鲜”尸体,看看有没有适合附身的目标。

When they return back to the villa, Shang Ke would prepare hot breakfast for Shao Feidu. Then, he will accompany Shao Feidu with playing the piano and composing new music. At night after Shao Feidu has fallen asleep, Shang Ke will head out to search for “fresh” corpses to see if there are any suitable bodies for him to possess.

    别墅里的其他鬼物基本都被他清空了,邵飞渡再也没被他们骚扰过,睡眠质量直线上升。

All the other ghosts in the villa have been chased out by him. Shao Feidu is no longer harassed by them and his sleep quality improved.

    尚可有意引导他说话,从简单的名字,到各种常用词汇。经过几天训练,邵飞渡开始习惯叫他的名字,“可可”成为他口中出现频率最高的词语。

Shang Ke guided him to start speaking starting from simple words to various commonly used phrases. After a few days of training, Shao Feidu started getting used to calling his name. “Keke” became the words that he said most frequently.

    晚上散步时,尚可会教他辨认各种图标,尽管他觉得他对这些并不陌生,只是潜意识拒绝接受,才造成一定的认知障碍。

When taking a walk at night, Shang Ke would teach him to recognise various icons. Shang Ke felt that Shao Feidu was no stranger to these things, just that he had subconsciously refused to accept them resulting in some cognitive impairment.

    邵飞渡紧紧握着尚可的手,一边听着他介绍沿途的风景,一边目不转睛地凝视着他的脸。

Shao Feidu held Shang Ke’s hand tightly. He listened to Shang Ke introducing the scenery that they passed by while staring at Shang Ke’s face intently.

    “别总是盯着我啊,多看看外面的世界。”尚可抬手将他的脸摆正。

“Don’t just stare at me, look more at the world outside.” Shang Ke raised his hand and adjusted Shao Feidu’s face. 

    邵飞渡的视线漫不经心地在四周转了一圈,很快又回到尚可身上,如同一只还未离巢的雏鹰,等待着母亲的喂养和引导。

Shao Feidu looked around casually but his eyes soon went back to Shang Ke. He was like a young eagle who hadn’t left its nest and was waiting for its mother’s feeding and guidance.

    “可可。”邵飞渡突然唤道。

“Keke.” Shao Feidu suddenly called out.

    “嗯?”尚可转头看向他。

“Hmm?” Shang Ke turned his head to look at him.

    “我踩到了可可。”邵飞渡低头盯着脚下。

“I stepped onto Keke[1].”  Shao Feidu lowered his head and stared at his feet

    尚可顺着他的视线看过去,发现他鞋子上出现了可疑的深褐色物质。

Shang Ke followed his line of sight and looked down only to see suspicious dark brown substance on his shoes. 

    尚可一脸黑线,纠正道:“你踩到的是狗屎,不是可可!”

Shang Ke’s face was full of black lines. He corrected, “What you stepped on is dog shit, not cocoa!”

    邵飞渡默默地望着尚可,似乎在问怎么办。

Shao Feidu looked at Shang Ke quietly as if asking what to do.

    “就快到别墅了,我们回去再清理。”尚可拉着他走了一会,突然回头问道,“渡渡,你喜欢宠物吗?”

“We are reaching the villa soon, we will clean after going back.” Shang Ke pulled him along and walked for a while. Then, he suddenly turned around and asked, “Dudu, do you like pets?”

    邵飞渡回道:“喜欢可可。”

Shao Feidu answered. “I like Keke.”

    “可可不是宠物。”尚可耐心解释,“宠物就是小猫小狗小白兔……”

“Keke is not a pet.” Shang Ke explained patiently, “Pets are animals like cats, dogs and rabbits…”

    他一连列举了十几种小动物,最后又问:“有没有特别喜欢的?”

He listed a bunch of small animals and asked again, “Is there any that you particularly like?”

    “有,可可。”邵飞渡对“可可”这种“宠物”的喜爱坚定不移。

“Yes, Keke.” Shao Feidu had unwavering love for the “pet” called “Keke”.

    尚可:“……那好吧,我们养一条小狗,名字就叫‘可可’。”

Shang Ke: “… Okay then. We will raise a dog and call it ‘Keke.”

    “不。”邵飞渡第一次拒绝了尚可的提议。

“No.” Shao Feidu rejected Shang Ke’s suggestion for the first time.

    “为什么?”尚可对他的拒绝不但不生气,反而很高兴。

“Why?” Shang Ke wasn’t angry with his refusal. On the contrary, he was very happy.

    邵飞渡拧着眉头,似乎正在努力组织语言。

Shao Feidu frowned. He seems to be trying his best to organise his words.

    尚可两眼闪闪地望着他。

Shang Ke looked at him with twinkling eyes.

    他看着尚可,张张嘴,别过头。不过一会,又看过来,张张嘴,又转过头。几次反复后,最终也没说出一个字。

He looked at Shang Ke, opened his mouth, then looked away. After awhile, he looked back at Shang Ke again, opened his mouth, but looked away again. This repeated a few times but he didn’t say anything ultimately.

    尚可一阵好笑,主动替他回答:“我知道了,你不喜欢小狗,你喜欢小猫。”

Shang Ke found it funny. He took the initiative to answer for Shao Feidu, “I know. You don’t like dogs, you like cats.”

    不是!

No!

    他只是……只是不想叫一只小狗“可可”,他只想叫他“可可”。

He just… didn’t want to call a dog “Keke”. He only wants to call him “Keke”.

    晚上,邵飞渡洗完澡,穿着浴袍走出浴室,见尚可正光着身体趴在他床上看书,被子盖在他的腰上,露出如音符般的背部线条,流畅而优美。

At night, Shao Feidu finished bathing and came out of the bathroom while wearing a bathrobe. He saw Shang Ke lying naked on his bed reading a book with a blanket covering up to his waist. The back that was exposed was smooth and beautiful like a musical note.

    他走过去,忍不住伸手触摸,冰冷而后灼热的感觉再次从手心传来。

He walked over and couldn’t help but touch it. The cold then subsequently hot feeling could once again be felt through his palm.

    尚可白天是虚影状态,身体若隐若现,晚上实体化,如活人一般,在邵飞渡面前,连衣服也不凝聚一件,大大方方的光着。

Shang Ke is in his ghost state in the day, his figure hazy. At night, his body materialises and he looked like a living person. He didn’t even create himself some clothes and generously appeared naked before Shao Feidu.

    邵飞渡从最初的害怕,到如今的亲近,不过只用了五、六天时间。

Only 5-6 days have passed since Shao Feidu’s initial fear has changed to today’s intimacy.

    邵飞渡掀开被子,躺到尚可身边,默默地望着他。

Shao Feidu lifted up the blanket and laid beside Shang Ke, then stared at him silently.

    尚可放下书,钻进被子,对他说:“明天有一场歌剧演出,我们去看吧?”

Shang Ke put down the book and went under the blanket. He said to him, “There’s an opera performance tomorrow. Let’s go take a look?”

    邵飞渡没有说话,只是将一只手臂小心地搭在尚可的腰上,悄悄拉近两人的距离。

Shao Feidu didn’t say anything. He placed his arm carefully on Shang Ke’s waist and quietly pulled the two of them closer. 

    尚可笑了笑,主动抱住他,亲密地靠在他胸口。

Shang Ke smiled. He took the initiative to hug him and leaned onto his chest intimately.

    邵飞渡的心脏砰砰直跳,熟悉的气息,让他止不住身体的躁动。

Shao Feidu’s heart pounded. The familiar breath caused his body to feel restless.

    他本能地将一条腿探进尚可的腿间,让自己更加贴近,然后闭上眼睛,在躁动中,安然入眠。

He stuck one leg in between Shang Ke’s leg instinctively to bring himself closer. Then, he closed his eyes and went to sleep peacefully amidst his restlessness.

[1] Keke (可可) means cocoa.
