Chapter 182: Ghost Assistant (XIV)


TL: Resonance

    云邵两家人匆匆赶到医院时,尚可和邵飞渡已经分别被送出了急诊室。

By the time the Yun and Shao family people rushed to the hospital, Shang Ke and Shao Feidu were already pushed out of the emergency room respectively.

    “什么情况?”云父努力压抑自己的焦虑,沉声问道。

“What’s the situation?” Father Yun tried his best to suppress his anxiousness and asked deeply.

    医生环视一圈,迟疑地问:“邵先生的家人还没到吗?”

The doctor looked around and asked hesitantly, “Shao Feidu’s family isn’t here yet?”

    云母冷声道:“他们可能要晚点,你先和我们说说情况。”

Mother Yun said coldly, “They might be late. Tell us about the situation first.”

    医生点点头,没再多问,开始向他们详述伤情:“邵先生的伤势比较轻,脑部有轻微脑震荡,手臂和额头各有几处擦撞击伤,只要好好休养几日即可。至于贵公子……”

The doctor nodded his head and didn’t ask any further. He started telling them about Shang Ke and Shao Feidu’s injuries, “Mr Shao’s injuries are lighter. He has mild concussion and his arm and forehead has several scratch and bruise wounds. He just needs a few days of good rest. As for your son…” 

    见医生停顿,云家人脸上都露出紧张之色,连声催促。

Seeing the doctor pause, the Yun family’s people face all revealed their nervousness and they urged him to continue. 

    “他的左手手掌严重骨裂,但完全治愈并不是难事,比较麻烦的是……”医生斟酌了一下措辞,说道:“他似乎再次陷入‘脑死亡’状态。”

“His left palm is severely fractured, but a complete recovery isn’t difficult. The trouble is…” The doctor considered his wordings and said, “He seems to have fallen into the ‘brain dead’ state again.”

    “什么叫‘又再次陷入脑死亡状态’?”云母怒道,“难道脑死亡还能反复发作吗?”

“What do you mean by ‘fallen into the brain dead state again’?” Mother Yun said angrily, “Don’t tell me brain deadness can be recurrent?”

    “不不不。”医生连忙解释道,“几位已经知道,云先生曾经被医院判定为脑死亡,按理来说,这种情况在医学上已经算是真正死亡了,但他却在两年后奇迹苏醒,关于这一点,我们也一直百思不得其解。后来经过对他大脑光片的反复研究,我们怀疑他当时可能处于大脑‘假死’状态,在这种状态下,他的脑波反应,以我们目前的仪器无法感知。”

“No no no.” The doctor quickly explained, “As the few of you already know, Mr Yun was once determined as brain dead by the hospital. By right, a situation like this can be considered as truly dead medically. However, he woke up miraculously 2 years later. We have been puzzled regarding this. After repeated studies on his brain’s CT scan, we suspect that he might have been in a ‘fake’ brain dead state. While in that state, his brain waves are unable to be detected by our current instruments.”

    “那些我不关心!”云母打断道,“我只想知道我的孩子什么时候能够苏醒?”

“I don’t care about those!” Mother Yun interrupted, “I just want to know when my child would wake up?”

    “这个……我们也无法确定,毕竟贵公子这种病例从未出现过。”眼见云母又要发火,医生连忙补充,“从他们的伤势来看,这起事故恐怕有些蹊跷。”

“This… We are not sure either. After all, your son’s case has never happened before.” Seeing that mother Yun was about to rage again, the doctor quickly added, “Based on their injuries, I’m afraid there’s something strange about this case.”

    “什么意思?”云父严肃问。

“What do you mean?” Father Yun asked seriously.

    “邵先生头部的伤,是同一个部位连续遭受撞击所形成的,车祸一般不会造成这种伤痕。”医生回答,“而贵公子的左手掌骨裂也与邵先生的情况十分类似。更让人费解的是,他全身都有出血迹象,但并无明显外伤,也没有会造成出血的病症。”

“Shao Feidu’s head injury is formed by receiving continuous impact on the same spot. Generally, a car accident wouldn’t cause this kind of injury.” The doctor answered, “Your son’s fractured left palm is very similar to Mr Shao’s case. What’s even more puzzling was the fact his whole body was bleeding. He had no obvious external injuries and neither did he have any illness that would cause such bleeding.”

    这时,一名JC走上前,接话道,“我们根据当时两位当事人的姿势和医生提供的验伤报告,大致有一个猜测,当时可能有某种力量控制邵先生的头部往车门上撞,而贵公子的左手之所以骨裂,是因为阻挡撞击所致。”

At this moment, a police officer came forward and continued, “We made a rough guess based on the two of their positions when we found them and the injury report provided by the doctor. At that time, they might have been some sort of power controlling Mr Shao’s head to bang the car door. And the reason why your son’s left hand is fractured is because he was trying to block the impact.”

    “你的意思是,这起车祸是人为的?”云父沉下脸,给人一种不怒而威的压迫感。

“What you’re trying to say is that this accident is man-made?” Father Yun’s face sank and gave people an overwhelming sense of oppression.

    “不排除这种可能。”JC犹豫了一会,又道,“警方已经派人去调取监控,相信很快就会有结果了。”

“We won’t rule out this possibility.” The police officer hesitated for a moment before adding, “The police have already sent someone to retrieve the surveillance recording. I believe that there will be results soon.”

    这时,一直没有开口的云家大少云可照对自己的父亲说道:“爸爸,这件事我想亲自跟进。”

At this moment, Yun Kezhao, the eldest young master of the Yun family who hasn’t been speaking, said to his father, “Father, I want to follow up on this matter personally.”

    云父点点头,语气中带着杀气:“务必给我查个水落石出!”

Father Yun nodded his head and said in a murderous tone, “Be sure to find out everything clearly!”

    尚可和邵飞渡被安排在同一个病房,邵飞渡在当天晚上便醒了,他猛地从床上坐起来,转头看到另一张病床上的尚可,立刻冲过去,单膝跪在床边,握住他的手。

Shang Ke and Shao Feidu were placed in the same ward. Shao Feidu woke up that night and he sat up from his bed violently. When he turned his head and saw Shang Ke lying on the other bed, he rushed over immediately. He kneeled on one knee beside the bed and held his hand.

    可可,可可……邵飞渡专注地凝视着床上的人,感受着他身上熟悉的气息,但这股气息已经变得十分微弱,若非集中精神,几乎感应不到。

Keke, Keke… Shao Feidu stared intently at the person on the bed and felt his familiar breath. However, this breath has become extremely weak. He could hardly sense it if he didn’t focus.

    邵飞渡心中升起巨大的恐慌,比起见到恶鬼更让他害怕,整个人仿佛坠入冰窟,从头冷到脚。

Panic rose tremendously in Shao Feidu’s heart. This scared him more than him seeing an evil ghost. It felt as if his whole person was submerged in ice and he was cold from head to toe.

    可可,可可……

Keke, Keke… 

    “飞渡,你醒了。”这时,云母走进病房,强打精神对邵飞渡露出一个微笑。她之前觉得这个男人傲慢无力,一直不待见他。若非自己儿子喜欢,她估计再也不会和他打交道。但后来得知内情,才算是真正接受他。

“Feidu, you woke up.” At this moment, mother Yun walked into the ward. She forced herself to cheer up and gave Shao Feidu a smile. In the past, she had thought that this man was arrogant and incapable, so she never liked seeing him. She probably wouldn’t have interacted with him again if not for the fact that her son likes him. She started truly accepting him only when she learned about the truth afterwards.

    如今见他对自己的话毫无反应,云母也不在意,将食物放在桌上,又倒上一杯热饮,说道:“先吃饭吧,可煦就在那里,不会跑掉的。”

Now, after seeing that he had no reaction to what she just said, mother Yun didn’t mind it. She placed the food on the table, poured a cup of hot drink and said, “Eat first. Kexu is just there and won’t run away.”

    “他?”面对不熟悉的人,邵飞渡的语言表达能力又退化了。

“Him?” When facing unfamiliar people, Shao Feidu’s expressing ability degraded again.

    不过云母很容易就猜到他想问的是什么,回答道:“医生说是‘大脑假死’,陷入深度睡眠,不知道什么时候能够醒来。”

However, mother Yun easily guessed what he was trying to ask. She answered, “The doctor said that he’s in a ‘fake brain dead’ state and is in a deep sleep. No one knows when he would wake up.”

    邵飞渡不再说话,继续看着尚可。

Shao Feidu no longer spoke and continued looking at Shang Ke.

    云母心想他暂时可能没有胃口,也便随他去了。看他对儿子的深情,她心中伤感的同时也有些欣慰。

Mother Yun thought that he probably wouldn’t have the appetite for the time being, so she just left him be. Seeing his deep feelings for her son, she felt both sad and relieved.

    深夜,邵飞渡维持着一个姿势,一直守在床边。

Late in the night, Shao Feidu maintained the same posture and kept staying beside the bed.

    病房中异常安静,只有仪器的滴答声。

The ward was strangely quiet and only the beeping sound of the machines could be heard.

    正在这时,一只手臂突然从床底下伸出来,抓住邵飞渡的脚踝。

At this moment, an arm suddenly stretched out from under the bed and grabbed Shao Feidu’s ankle.

    邵飞渡一动不动,好像完全没发现一般。

Shao Feidu didn’t move, as if he didn’t notice it at all.

    鬼手很快又缩了回去,接着探出一颗血淋淋的人头,两只赤红的眼睛直直地瞪着邵飞渡,在阴影中显得格外阴森可怖。

The ghost hand shrank back quickly. Then, a bloody human head appeared and its two crimson eyes stared straight at Shao Feidu. It looked especially eerie in the shadows.

    邵飞渡还是没有反应,目光始终凝聚在尚可身上。

Shao Feidu still didn’t react and his line of sight has been on Shang Ke from beginning to end.

    鬼魂见他无视自己,非常愤怒,两手攀着床架,一点点滑了上来,脸上露出阴恻恻的笑容。然而,还没等他完全滑出来,就被一张符纸拍中脑门。

The ghost was very angry seeing Shao Feidu ignore him. It climbed the bed frame with both hands and slipped up bit by bit, its face showing a sinister smile. However, he had yet to slip out completely when a talisman was smacked onto his head.

    邵飞渡缓缓转过头,一双空洞的眼眸,木然地盯着他。以前的他确实害怕这些鬼物,但如今,他心中只剩下对他们的厌恶和痛恨。谁敢在他面前装神弄鬼,他就灭了谁。

Shao Feidu turned his head around slowly and his empty eyes stared blankly at the ghost. He was indeed scared of these ghosts before. But now, all that was left in his heart was his feeling of disgust and hate towards them. Whoever dares to play ghost before him will be destroyed by him.

    鬼魂发出一声痛苦的尖啸,在空中无火自燃,随后化作一团雾气,被诡异地吸入云可煦的体内。

The ghost let out a painful scream as it burned in the air without any fire source. Then, it turned into a cloud of mist and was strangely absorbed into Yun Kexu’s body.

    随着这只鬼魂的能量被吸食,云可煦身上那股微弱的气息似乎变得明显了几分。

After this ghost’s energy was absorbed, the weak breath on Yun Kexu seemed to have become more noticeable. 

    邵飞渡眼神微亮,像是发现了什么新大陆一般,整个人焕发出异样的神采……

Shao Feidu’s eyes brightened as if he had discovered a new continent and he gave out a strange look… 

    鬼魂们的灾难降临了。

The ghosts’ calamity arrived.

    医院最近出现了一个专门抓鬼的家伙,他四处收集鬼魂的能量,所有抵抗的鬼魂都被会他打得魂飞魄散。

A guy who specializes in catching ghosts has recently appeared in the hospital. He collects ghosts’ energy from all around, all the ghosts that resist would be beaten by him until their souls fly.

    鬼魂因为执念而存在,执念让他们产生某种特殊能力,也就是俗称的鬼气或者鬼力。一旦鬼气被吸收,鬼魂便无法再滞留人间。某种程度上而言,也算是超度了。但活人不能过多接触鬼气,不然轻则精神失常,健康受损,重则危及性命。

Ghosts exist because of their obsession, and their obsession gives them a special ability, commonly known as ghost qi or ghost powers. Once a ghost’s qi is absorbed, the ghost is no longer able to stay in the human world. This can also be considered as purging to some extent. However, a living person shouldn’t be exposed to too much ghost qi. Or else, they might suffer from mental disorders and impaired health in light cases or their lives might be in danger in serious cases.

    邵飞渡对此一无所知,为了尽可能多地给尚可收集能量,他成为了让鬼魂们闻风丧胆的猎鬼人。

Shao Feidu knew nothing about this. To help Shang Ke collect as much energy as possible, he became a ghost hunter that brought fear to the ghosts.

    当然,他所猎捕的,基本都是一些没什么能力的普通鬼魂,他们身上的能量并不多,只能靠数量填补。

Of course, the ghosts he had hunted were basically ordinary ghosts with little power. The energy they had wasn’t much and could only be compensated by quantity.

    随着接触的鬼气越来越多,邵飞渡的脸色越来越阴郁,身上也透出森森鬼气,所过之处,寒意凛然。一周下来,别说活人,就连鬼魂,也不敢轻易接近他。

As Shao Feidu had more and more contact with the ghosts, his face became more and more gloomy. His body also exuded a ghostly aura. Wherever he went, the cold air swept by.

    若非他修炼小有所成,体内阳气旺盛,恐怕已经被鬼气伤了根源。不仅如此,好不容易敞开心扉的他,又变得沉默寡言,自我封闭,除了尚可,其他任何事,他都漠不关心。

The ghost qi would have hurt his roots already if not for his small success in cultivation and the strong yang energy within his body. Not only that, Shao Feidu who had finally opened his heart has once again become quiet and kept to himself. Other than Shang Ke, he did not care for anything else.

    云可煦和邵飞渡的车祸,很快被媒体报道出来。警方推测非意外事故,更让外界众说风云。两个备受瞩目的焦点人物,两个命运多舛的有情人,却在众目睽睽之下被人谋害。

Yun Kexu and Shao Feidu’s car accident was soon reported by the media. The police speculated that it might not have been an accident, causing the people to have more to say about it. The two people were high-profile and their love has been full of misfortune. Now, they were harmed right under everyone’s eyes.

    一个昏迷不醒,一个再次自闭,他们好像又回到原点,让无数人为之痛心。

One was unconscious and the other has become autistic once again. They seemed to have returned back to square one, making countless people feel distressed for them.

    然而,饶是以云邵两家之力,也没有查到凶手。露面监控没有拍到可疑人物,车子也没有被人动过手脚的迹象,唯一的可疑的,就是车内的监控,有几分钟的空白。这些空白,正是车子从失控到撞车后这段时间的录像内容。

However, the perpetrator still couldn’t be found despite the power of the Yun and Shao family. The surveillance recording did not capture anyone suspicious and the car also had no signs of being tampered. The only suspicious point was the recording in the car which had a few minutes blank. This blank period was the camera recording of the period when the car lost control and the period after the car crashed.

    【完成……主线任务……2……】

【Main mission… 2… complete…】

    系统的声音在尚可的意识中响起,但是断断续续,好像受到了某种干扰。

The system’s voice sounded in Shang Ke’s consciousness. However, it went on and off as if it was interfered by something.

    更让尚可奇怪的是,他只超度了一只饿死鬼,主线任务根本没有完成。记得自己昏迷前,邵飞渡对那只厉鬼使用的是灭鬼符,厉鬼直接被消灭了,而不是被超度。

What made Shang Ke feel even more strange was the fact that he had only purged a hungry ghost and it was impossible for him to complete his main mission. Before he went unconscious, he remembered that Shao Feidu had used an annihilating talisman on the vengeful ghost. The vengeful ghost was directly annihilated and not purged.

    尚可环视一周,自己正身处在一片黑暗中,没有声音,没有亮光,就连自己的身体都感觉不到,好像只有意识存在。

Shang Ke looked around for one week. The place he was at was in the dark. There was no sound and no light. He couldn’t even feel his own body. It seems that only his consciousness was around.

    这是怎么回事?

What’s going on?

    “系统,你在吗?发生什么事了?”尚可尝试呼唤。

“System, are you there? What happened?” Shang Ke tried calling.

    【……附加任务……阻,阻止……】

【… Additional mission… stop, stop…】

    “阻止什么?系统,你是不是中病毒了?”

“Stop what? System, are you infected by a virus?”

    【阻止……】

【Stop…】

    尚可等了许久,系统却再无声息。

Shang Ke waited for a long time but the system no longer made a sound.

    “系统,你说清楚啊,阻止什么?!”

“System, explain clearly. What should I stop?!”

    尚可还想追问,突然感觉一阵剧痛袭来,仿佛灵魂被撕裂,又重新组合,反反复复,最后凝聚成一个整体。

Shang Ke still wanted to ask more, but he suddenly felt a severe pain. It felt as if his soul was torn apart, then reassembled. It went over and over again before he finally condensed into a complete form.

    隐约间,尚可好像感觉到一股似有若无的凉意,缓缓睁开眼,看到窗外飘过片片雪花,丝丝寒风,透过半开的窗子,吹起了床边的窗帘。

Shang Ke could seemingly feel a coolness faintly. He slowly opened his eyes and saw the snowflakes drifting across outside the window. Some cold wind went through the half opened window and blew the curtains next to the bed.

    尚可的视线缓缓向旁边的沙发移去,赫然看到一大团黑气。

Shang Ke’s line of sight slowly turned towards the sofa at the side and was shocked to see a cloud of black mist.

    那是……邵飞渡?!

That’s… Shao Feidu?!

    邵飞渡正以一个极其别扭的姿势斜靠在沙发上,两眼紧闭,眼下一片青黑,脸色惨白,整个人削瘦了许多,而且浑身鬼气弥漫,几乎将他本身的阳气给吞没了。

Shao Feidu was currently reclining on the sofa in an extremely awkward posture. His eyes were shut tight with dark circles underneath and his face was pale. He had lost a lot of weight and his whole body was filled with ghost qi that almost engulfed all of his yang energy.

    他的渡渡怎么会变成这样?

How did his Dudu become like this?

    尚可挣扎着坐起身,刚想下床,便听到仪器发出刺耳的警报声。

Shang Ke struggled to sit up. When he was about to get off the bed, he heard the machine let out a sharp alarm.

    邵飞渡一个激灵,猛地弹坐起来,一眼看到半撑着身体的尚可,先是一愣,随即大步冲到他面前,一把将他抱进怀里。

Shao Feidu got a shock and quickly sat up. When he saw the half propped up Shang Ke, he was first stunned before he rushed towards Shang Ke in large steps and pulled Shang Ke into his embrace.

    尚可感受到他的激动,眼神柔和,伸手回抱他,轻声道:“我回来了,渡渡。”

Shang Ke could feel his excitement and his eyes became gentle. He stretched his hand to return the hug and said softly, “I’m back Dudu.”

    邵飞渡眼眶发热,原本死寂的心,仿佛在这一刻又活了起来。

Shao Feidu’s eyes were hot. His originally dead heart seemed to be alive again at this moment.

    这时,几人匆匆从病房外冲进来,见到房中的情景,立刻停下了脚步。

At this moment, several people rushed in from outside the ward. Seeing the scene in the room, they immediately stopped moving.

    窗外白雪纷飞,两人紧紧相拥,没有任何言语,只有一片让人温暖的情意……

The snow drifted outside the window as the two hugged each other tightly. No words were said and there was only a warm feeling…
