Chapter 178: Ghost Assistant (X)


TL: Resonance

    第二天,尚可醒来时,邵飞渡还在熟睡,头发耷拉在额间,鼻间发出轻微的鼾声,看起来就像一只餍足的懒猫。

When Shang Ke woke up the next day, Shao Feidu was still sound asleep. His hair was drooping on his forehead and his nose let out soft snores. He looked like a satisfied lazy cat.

    尚可伸手捏住他的鼻子,结果他只是皱皱眉头,然后自动换成用嘴巴呼吸,丝毫不受影响。

Shang Ke stretched out his hand to pinch Shao Feidu’s nose. Shao Feidu only frowned before he automatically changed to breathing through his mouth and wasn’t the least bit affected. 

    尚可瞪大眼睛:这是什么技能?

Shang Ke’s eyes widened: What kind of skill is this?

    正在思索着要不要把他的嘴巴也捂上时,身边的男人已经醒来,双眼迷蒙,见到尚可,立刻抱进怀里,亲昵地蹭蹭。

Just as he was thinking whether he should cover the mouth as well, the man beside him has already woken up. Shao Feidu’s eyes were in a daze. Seeing Shang Ke, Shao Feidu immediately brought him into his embrace and rubbed against him intimately.

    “时间不早了,起床!”尚可像撕膏药一般将他从身上撕开,然后腰酸背痛地爬起床,光着身子朝浴室走去。

“It’s getting late, get up!” Shang Ke tore away from his body like tearing away a plaster. Then, he got out from the bed with aching waist and back and walked towards the bathroom naked.

    邵飞渡将被子一掀,也光着身子跟了上去。

Shao Feidu lifted the blanket and followed after him while being similarly naked.

    两人腻腻歪歪地洗漱完毕,换上同款居家服,一起下楼吃早餐。

After they were done with their sticky bath, they changed into matching home clothes and went down for breakfast.

    尚可今天准备带邵飞渡去市中心逛一逛,依靠某人的招鬼体质,寻找可以超度的恶鬼。

Shang Ke intended to bring Shao Feidu out to the city centre to walk around and rely on someone’s ghost-attracting physique to look for evil ghosts he could purge.

    也是时候练练渡渡的胆子了,尚可一边喝粥,一边笑眯眯地看着身边的男人。

It was also time to train Dudu’s courage. Shang Ke drank his porridge as he looked at the man beside him with a smile.

    邵飞渡还以为他想吃自己的香肠,于是十分大方地递到他嘴边。

Shao Feidu had thought that Shang Ke wanted to eat his sausage, so he generously brought one towards his mouth.

    尚可:“……”

Shang Ke: “…”

    吃过早餐,尚可先领着邵飞渡出去散散步、消消食,然后坐车前往市中心。

After having breakfast, Shang Ke brought Shao Feidu out for a walk first to digest before riding the car towards the city center.

    第一站是网上传闻每年必有人离奇死亡、被死神诅咒的曼迪商城,按理来说,这种商城人气应该很低才对,但事实上,很多人都只是将传闻当鬼故事听,对鬼神之说嗤之以鼻。

The first stop was Mandy Mall which has rumours online saying that it was cursed by the death god and would have people dying bizarrely every year. Normally, this kind of mall shouldn’t have many people going. But in actual fact, most people treated the rumours as just ghost stories and sneered at the ideas of ghosts and gods.

    在尚可眼中,鬼魂其实只是活人死后留下的残念,没有完整的意识。普通鬼魂一般七天之后就会消失,只有那些执念、怨气太深的鬼魂才会滞留人间。他们的残念,会形成一种精神力场,遵循着一定规律,寻找发泄目标。

To Shang Ke, ghosts are actually just the regrets left behind after someone dies. They don’t have complete consciousness. Ordinary ghosts usually disappear after 7 days. Only ghosts with extremely strong obsession or resentment would continue staying in the world. Their regrets would form a psychic field and they would look for targets to vent on while following a certain pattern.

    鬼魂最常见的能力,就是干扰活人的脑电波,恶梦、幻觉、鬼压床、鬼打墙、短暂失记、情绪突然失控等等,都有可能是被鬼魂所影响。

A ghost’s most common ability was interfering with the brainwaves of living people. Nightmares, hallucination, sleep paralysis, wall-banging, temporary loss of memory and sudden loss of control of one’s emotion, etc might all be due to the influence of a ghost.

    恶鬼级别的鬼魂,可以在某种条件下控制电流、信号、磁场等元素。尚可比恶鬼高一级,属于极度危险的厉鬼,可以吞噬其他鬼魂的能量。

Evil level ghosts are able to control electric current, signal and magnetic field etc under certain conditions. Shang Ke was one level above evil ghosts. His type belonged to the extremely dangerous vengeful ghost which was able to devour other ghosts’ energy.

    想到这个,尚可倒是有些好奇,不知道原主是怎么成为厉鬼的。想要成为厉鬼,至少需要积攒数百年的能量。

Shang Ke felt rather curious when he thought about this. He wondered how the original owner became a vengeful ghost. To become a vengeful ghost, one has to at least accumulate hundreds of years of energy.

    车子抵达目的地,尚可收敛身上的厉鬼气息,和邵飞渡一起下车。

When the car reached the destination, Shang Ke withdrew back his vengeful ghost aura and got off the car with Shao Feidu.

    商场中人来人往,虽然如今网上购物很方便,但很多人还是喜欢出门逛街的感觉。

There were many people in the mall. Online shopping is very convenient now, but many people still prefer the feeling of shopping outside.

    邵飞渡不太适应人多的环境,但只要待在尚可身边,倒也不觉得难受。两人走进电梯,按下4楼的按键。

Shao Feidu wasn’t used to places with many people. Nevertheless, he didn’t feel that uncomfortable as long as he stayed by Shang Ke’s side. The two of them entered the lift and pressed the level 4 button.

    “4”这个数字,历来被视为不吉利的象征,不过在这个世界显然没有这个忌讳。

The number “4” has been historically regarded as an unlucky symbol. However, there was obviously no such taboo in this world.

    电梯徐徐上升,明明只要几秒钟,过程却显得格外漫长。奇怪的是,电梯里其他人似乎完全没感觉异常,说说笑笑,好不自在。

The lift rose slowly. The process only needed a few seconds, but the lift seemed to be taking especially long. Strangely however, the other people in the lift don’t seem to feel this abnormality at all. They continued talking and laughing looking very comfortable.

    这时,一只手臂伸过来,揽住尚可的腰,紧紧贴在他身边。

At this moment, an arm stretched over and held Shang Ke’s waist, clinging to Shang Ke’s side.

    尚可转过头,立刻看到几根惨白的手指不知何时爬上了邵飞渡的肩膀。

Shang Ke turned his head and immediately saw that a few pale fingers had unknowingly climbed onto Shao Feidu’s shoulders.

    尚可的身体微微后仰,结果什么都没看见,再回头时,赫然发现邵飞渡身边突然多了一名低垂着头、披头散发的女人。她站在几人中间,丝毫没有引起别人的注意。

Shang Ke leaned back slightly but didn’t see anything. When he looked back, he was surprised to see another person beside Shao Feidu. It was a woman with a lowered head and dishevelled hair. She stood in between a few people and did not attract anyone’s attention in the slightest.

    接着,她抬起手臂,缓缓攀上前面一个男人的肩膀,然后抱住他的脖子,挂在他的背上。

Then, she raised her arm and slowly climbed onto the shoulder of the man in front. Subsequently, she hugged his neck and hung on his back.

    叮咚一声,电梯门打开,那个男人毫无所觉,一边和身边的女友说笑,一边背着女鬼走出电梯。在他踏出电梯的瞬间,女鬼突然转过头,露出一张被烧毁的半张脸,对着邵飞渡阴阴一笑。

Ding dong. The lift door opened. The man was unaware and went out of the lift carrying the female ghost while joking with his girlfriend who was beside him. The moment he stepped out of the lift, the female ghost suddenly turned her head, revealing her half-burned face as she gave Shao Feidu a sinister smile.

    邵飞渡两手圈住尚可的腰,将他摆在自己身前,一副“我有万能可可,你吓不到我”的表情。

Shao Feidu encircled Shang Ke’s waist with both hands and placed Shang Ke in front of him with a “I have all-purpose Keke, you can’t scare me” expression.

    尚可:“……”

Shang Ke: “…”

    第一次踩点很顺利,刚进来就确定恶鬼的存在,接下来,尚可暂时放下心事,开始和邵飞渡四处闲逛起来。

The first scouting was very successful. They had just stepped into the mall and he has already confirmed the existence of an evil ghost. Afterwards, Shang Ke put aside this matter temporarily and started strolling about with Shao Feidu.

    至于那个被恶鬼缠住的男人,身上必然带着吸引恶鬼的怨气,可见平时做过不少缺德事,尚可不介意让他倒霉一段时间。以那个男人旺盛的生命力,一时半会肯定是死不了的。

As for the man being implicated by the evil ghost, it was certain that he had resentful energy that could attract evil ghosts. It was evident that he had done plenty of wicked stuff usually, Shang Ke didn’t mind letting him suffer for a period of time. Based on that man’s exuberant vitality, he won’t be dying anytime soon.

    况且,这只恶鬼是地缚灵,她白天是无法离开商城的,只有晚上才能跑出去吓人。

Moreover, this evil ghost is an earthbound spirit. She is unable to leave the mall during the day. Only at night could she go out to scare people.

    尚可和邵飞渡逛了一上午,订购了几套男装,然后各拿着一个冰激凌,愉快地结束了这次商城之行。

Shang Ke and Shao Feidu walked about for the whole morning and ordered a few sets of menswear. Then, they each held an ice cream and happily ended this mall trip.

    接下来几天,尚可又和邵飞渡去了好几个类似的场所,先后遇到饿死鬼、抑郁鬼、凶煞鬼,加上之前在徐医生身上看到的那对母子阴魂和那只让尚可复活失败的水鬼(水鬼如今换成了淹死的那个男孩),一下子就发现了6只。

For the next few days, Shang Ke and Shao Feidu went to several similar places and encountered a hungry ghost, depressive ghost and fierce ghost. If he added the mother and son ghost he had seen on Dr. Xu and the water ghost that had caused Shang Ke’s revival to fail (the water ghost has now become the man who had drowned), he had found 6 ghosts all at once.

    尚可一一进行调查,首先排除了水鬼和母子阴魂。前者是替死轮回,无法简单超度。后者则是因为私心,那个徐医生多行不义,死有余辜。他还和慕祯狼狈为奸,偷偷给邵飞渡开了一些容易引发抑郁的药物,若长期服用,邵飞渡将变得越来越孤僻,拒绝与外界交流,甚至可能萌生自杀的念头。

Shang Ke investigated them one by one. He first excluded the water ghost and the mother and son ghost. The former had to use a scapegoat to take their place and would be hard to purge. He excluded the latter too due to his own selfish motives. That Dr. Xu had done many wicked things and death wasn’t enough to pay for his crime. He also did bad things with Mu Zhen, secretly giving Shao Feidu medicine that would easily trigger depression. If the medicine was taken for a long term, Shao Feidu would become more and more autistic and refuse to interact with the outside world. He might even have suicidal thoughts.

    这件事让尚可愤怒不已,若非他及时将慕祯的人清理干净,渡渡必然会按照他们的要求,持续服用那种药物。

This matter made Shang Ke very furious. If he hadn’t cleared up Mu Zhen’s people in time, it was certain that Dudu would follow his request and keep taking that kind of medicine.

    尚可好不容易才让渡渡敞开心扉,一点点接触外面的世界,又怎么会允许这群小人再来伤害他?

Shang Ke finally got Dudu to open up and interact with the outside world bit by bit. How could he let this bunch of villains harm him again?

    之前只打算让慕祯把转走的钱还回来就不追究了,现在他决定狠狠给他一个教训。至于那个徐医生,就让那对母子阴魂好好招待他吧。

Prior to this, Shang Ke had only intended to make Mu Zhen return the money he transferred away and he would let him go. But now, Shang Ke decided to teach him a lesson. As for Dr. Xu. he would let that mother and son ghost entertain him well.

    在尚可发现的几只恶鬼中,有一只凶煞鬼,能够让人产生戾气。平常一些小冲突,最多吵吵嘴就过去了,但在凶煞鬼的影响下,随时可能演变成流血事件。

Amongst the evil ghosts Shang Ke had discovered, there was the fierce ghost that can make people become angrier. All those minor arguments that would be over after a quarrel can easily turn into a bloodshed under the influence of the fierce ghost. 

    新闻报道的伤人、杀人事件,不少都是因为一时冲动,其中一部分人正是被凶煞鬼所蛊惑。

Quite a number of the violence and murder cases reported on the news are all due to a moment of impulse and a portion of these cases were due to the bewitchment of the fierce ghost.

    在超度凶煞鬼之前,可以先让他陪慕祯好好“玩耍”一段时间。

Before he purges the fierce ghost, he can let the ghost “play” with Mu Zhen for a while first.

    “可可!”身后传来邵飞渡的喊声。

“Keke!” Shao Feidu’s shout sounded behind Shang Ke.

    “什么?”尚可从电脑屏幕前抬起头,见邵飞渡大步走过来,赤条条地杵在他身前,严肃地点开电子时钟给他看,意思是睡觉的时间到了!

“What?” Shang Ke looked up from the computer screen and saw Shao Feidu striding over. Shao Feidu stood naked before him and clicked at the electronic clock seriously for him to see. His meaning was that it was time to sleep!

    尚可的视线与邵飞渡的腹部处于一条水平线上,他目光平视,平静道:“嗯,马上就来。”

Shang Ke’s line of sight fell onto Shao Feidu’s abdomen area. He looked straight at it and said calmly, “Mn, I’m coming soon.”

    自从尚可光着身子在房间里晃过几次后,邵飞渡似乎也爱上了这种一丝不挂的坦荡感,每天晚上洗过澡后,连内裤也不穿一条。

Ever since Shang Ke walked around the room naked a few times, Shao Feidu seemed to have also fallen in love with the free sensation of not wearing anything. He doesn’t even wear his underwear every night after he bathes.

    尚可好歹只在自己房间裸,他倒是爽快,在二楼横行无忌。

At the very least, Shang Ke was naked only in his own room. Shao Feidu was even better, he went wild on the whole second floor.

    尚可觉得有必要对他进行一下礼仪指导了,免得他把“坦荡”当作一种习以为常的风俗。

Shang Ke felt the need to give him some etiquette guidance lest he treat this “freeness” as a normal habit.

    首先,他必须以身作则,树立一个好榜样。邵飞渡很多时候都会学他,记住他的每一句话,每一个动作,每一种习惯。一边模仿,一边进步,根据他自己的理解,逐渐形成属于他自己的一套行为模式。

Firstly, he needs to lead by example by setting himself as the good example. Shao Feidu learned from him most of the time, remembering everything he said, every move he made and every habit he had. Shao Feidu imitated what he did while improving himself, gradually forming his own behavioural pattern based on his own understanding.

    所以从今天开始,尚可决定不果睡了!

Therefore, Shang Ke decided not to sleep naked anymore from today onwards!

    当赤身果体的邵飞渡看到穿戴整齐的尚可时,内心是懵逼的。那控诉的小眼神,瞬间让他从冷峻男神变成委屈萌男。

When the naked Shao Feidu saw the neatly dressed Shang Ke, he felt confused. The protesting look in his eyes instantly changed him from a cold adonis to a wronged moe guy.

    尚可在他的盯视下,利落地解开睡衣的扣子,然后抱住他,安抚道:“晚了,睡吧。”

Under his stare, Shang Ke nimbly unbuttoned his pajamas. Then, he hugged Shao Feidu and appeased, “It’s getting late, let’s sleep.”

    “你穿了衣服!”邵飞渡不为所动,坚决指出尚可的错误。

“You’re wearing clothes!” Shao Feidu remained unmoved and pointed out Shang Ke’s mistake resolutely. 

    “穿着衣服睡比较舒服,以后我们都穿着衣服睡好不好?”尚可诱导着。

“It’s more comfortable to sleep with clothes on. From now on, let’s sleep with our clothes on alright?” Shang Ke suggested.

    “不好!”邵飞渡坚定不移地驳回。

“No!” Shao Feidu rebuked steadfastly. 

    “那……暂时只穿裤子,不穿上衣怎么样?”尚可觉得可以循序渐进。

“Then… How about we wear just the pants for now and not the top?” Shang Ke felt that he could work on it step by step.

    邵飞渡盯着尚可沉默了许久,然后开口道:“穿上衣,不穿裤子。”

Shao Feidu stared at Shang Ke in silence for a long while before saying, “Wear the top but not the pants.”

    尚可斜眼打量这个男人:……其实你一直都只是在装傻吧?

Shang Ke sized up this man with squinted eyes: …You’re just pretending to be stupid all this while right?

    最后在邵飞渡坚持下,尚可还是脱掉了裤子,不过特别提醒了一句:“明天我们必须穿着睡衣睡觉。”

In the end, Shang Ke still removed his pants under Shao Feidu’s insistence. However, he specially reminded him, “We must sleep with our pajamas on tomorrow.”

    邵飞渡眼神悠远,自动过滤一切不感兴趣的信息。

Shao Feidu’s eyes were distant as he automatically filtered out the information he wasn’t interested in.

    当晚,只穿着一件上衣的尚可,自然是被某人畅通无阻地这样又那样了……

That night, Shang Ke who was wearing only a top naturally had this and that done to him by someone unhindered…

    在搜集恶鬼信息的这段时间,尚可与邵飞渡如同新婚夫妻一般,每天都过得甜甜蜜蜜。尚可兴致来了,就收敛厉鬼气息,让邵飞渡招点鬼魂过来捉捉迷藏。

During the period Shang Ke was gathering information about the evil ghosts, he and Shao Feidu were like newlyweds and lived a sweet everyday life. Shang Ke would withdraw his vengeful ghost aura when he felt like it and let Shao Feidu attract some ghost over to play hide and seek.

    经过尚可一个月的惊吓训练,邵飞渡如今已经能够淡定地面对任何恐怖的鬼怪。这让尚可欣慰的同时,又有些小遗憾,他还挺喜欢渡渡明明很害怕还强装镇定的样子的……

After one month of scaring training by Shang Ke, Shao Feidu was now able to face any sort of scary ghost calmly. This made Shang Ke feel both gratified and a little regretful. He quite liked the look of Dudu acting calm despite being clearly afraid… 

    尚可将几只恶鬼的情况调查清楚后,正式准备开始超度。

After investigating the situation of the few evil ghosts, Shang Ke officially started preparing to purge them.

    他使用的是当初在修真世界学习的道法,利用符咒,对鬼魂进行超度。

He was going to use the Taoism method he had learned in the cultivation world back then. He will make use of talismans to purge the ghosts.

    然而,在制作符咒时,他却遇到了麻烦。虽然他如今已经复活成人,但本质上还是一只恶鬼,这也就意味着,对其他鬼物有效的符咒,对他同样有效。

However, he faced a problem when he was creating the talismans. Although he had already revived as a human now, he was still an evil ghost in essence. This means that the talismans which are effective against other ghosts were also effective against him.

    普通符咒对他作用不大,但超度符咒,却会让他产生了一种想要脱离肉身的感觉,也就是俗称的灵魂出窍。

Ordinary talismans have little effect on him, but purging talismans make him feel like escaping from his flesh body, also commonly known as the out-of-body experience.

    若威力再大一点,恐怕会直接先把自己给超度了。

If the power of the talisman was even greater, Shang Ke was afraid it might purge him first. 

    但威力又不能太小,因为他对付的都是恶鬼,光靠超度符咒也是不够的,还必须准备几种具有震慑力的攻击符咒,这种符咒同样可以威胁到他的鬼体。

However, the power couldn’t be too little either. As he is going to be dealing with evil ghosts, just the purging talismans alone isn’t enough. He must also prepare a few types of offensive talismans that can restraint them. These types of talisman are also a threat to his ghost body.

    更重要的是,厉鬼之身无法凝聚道法!他所制作的符咒,一旦成形,可能反而会提升鬼魂实力。

Most importantly, he wasn’t able to practice Taoism with his vengeful ghost body! The talismans he created might end up boosting a ghost’s strength instead.

    这……可怎么办?

This… What should he do?
