Chapter 206: Death Cycle (IV)


TL: Resonance

    帝馗将尚可放到沙发上,然后抽出自己插在他脖子里的手指,孔洞中立刻飙出几股鲜血。

Di Kui placed Shang Ke on the sofa, then took away his fingers which were stuck in Shang Ke’s neck. Blood started flowing out of the hole immediately.

    尚可折断的颈椎已经长好,只剩下脖子上的血洞,几秒后,鲜血停止飙飞,开始一点点愈合。

Shang Ke’s broken cervical spine had already recovered. All that was left were the bloody holes on his neck. A few seconds later, his neck stopped bleeding and the hole started healing bit by bit.

    还没来得及庆幸自己的复活,尚可便感觉脖子一凉,似乎有什么黏糊糊的东西在舔舐他脖子上的鲜血,回头一看,只见那只红眼小丧尸正蹲在沙发靠背上,俯身将头埋在他的颈项处,喉咙里不时发出满足的嘶嘶声。

Shang Ke had yet to celebrate his resurrection when he felt something cold on his neck. There seemed to be something slimy licking the blood on his neck. When Shang Ke turned back to look, he saw the little red eye zombie squatting on the backrest of the sofa. She leaned forward and buried her head in Shang Ke’s neck area, her throat letting out satisfied hisses occasionally.

    随后,她突然张开嘴,对着他的脖子就咬下去。

Then, she suddenly opened her mouth and bit towards his neck.

    帝馗手臂一挥,将她甩到墙壁上。小丧尸一个翻身,四肢着地,抗议般地对帝馗嗷嗷几声,不过没敢再靠近尚可,只是焦躁地围着沙发转圈圈。

Di Kui waved his arm and threw her onto the wall. The little zombie turned her body around and was on all fours. She howled at Di Kui a few times seemingly in protest, but didn’t dare to go near Shang Ke again. She only went in circles around the sofa restlessly.

    刚才看到小丧尸靠在这个人类脖子上舔血,帝馗莫名感到不爽,所以想都没想就把小丧尸给打开了。

Di Kui felt inexplicably unhappy when he saw the little zombie lean towards this human’s neck to lick the blood earlier. Hence, he smacked the little zombie away without thinking.

    视线在他脖子上扫了一眼,帝馗说道:“我要去人类基地,给我带路。”

Di Kui glanced at Shang Ke’s neck and said, “I want to go to the human base. Show me the way.”

    这个人类似乎拥有很有意思的能力,他打算放在身边养养。

This human seemed to have a very interesting ability. Di Kui intended to keep him by his side.

    他要去人类基地?一只丧尸王去人类基地干什么?实地考察如何更快地毁灭世界吗?

He wanted to go to the human base? Why did a zombie king want to go to the human base? A field trip to investigate how to destroy the world faster?

    其他人或许还不知道,尚可却很清楚,这个世界只有他才能杀死丧尸王,在没有找到具体实施方法前,丧尸王都是无敌的存在。

The others might not know yet, but Shang Ke was very clear that he was the only one who could kill the zombie king. Before he found a concrete plan to execute, the zombie king was an invincible existence.

    所以尚可无论如何都不会将这个危险的家伙带进幸存者基地,甚至还要尽可能拖延他找到基地的时间。

Therefore, Shang Ke wouldn’t bring this dangerous fellow into the survivors’ base no matter what. He even had to try his best to delay Di Kui from finding the base for as long as possible.

    “只要你不杀我,我就给你带路。”尚可摸了摸自己的脖子,用极小的弧度点了点头。

“I will show you the way as long as you don’t kill me.” Shang Ke touched his neck and nodded his head and a very small degree.

    帝馗对他的顺从表示满意,当即领着他走出大楼。

Di Kui expressed his satisfaction towards Shang Ke’s obedience. He immediately led him out of the building.

    这栋大楼已经被大群丧尸所包围,他们冲着尚可嘶吼着,咆哮着,兴奋地张牙舞爪。

This building had already been surrounded by a large group of zombies. They growled, roared bare their fangs and brandished their claws towards Shang Ke.

    尚可的伤口虽然愈合了,但身上还沾着鲜血,美味的气息不断刺激着饥渴难耐的丧尸们。

Shang Ke’s wounds had healed, but there were still blood stains on his body. The delicious smell continuously stimulated the hungry zombies.

    不过有帝馗的威压,他们不敢扑上来。

However, they dared not pounce forward when facing Di Kui’s oppressive force.

    尚可紧跟在帝馗身后,一脸高冷地从他们眼前经过。两人行走在疯狂的丧尸群中,就像超级巨星在接受粉丝们的欢呼,虽然这些“粉丝”略有些暴力和凶残……

Shang Ke followed closely after Di Kui and passed by them with a cold face. The two of them walked amongst the crazy group of zombies just like superstars receiving cheers from their fans. Though, these “fans” were somewhat violent and brutal… 

    这时,有一只丧尸似乎经不起诱惑,悄悄将爪子伸向了尚可的手臂。

At this moment, a zombie seemed to be unable to withstand the temptation and quietly stretched his claws towards Shang Ke’s arm.

    尚可一个错步,轻松躲开,衣袖却没能幸免,被撕走一条。

Shang Ke stepped away and easily dodged the zombie. However, his sleeve didn’t make it and was torn away.

    帝馗停下脚步,冷冷地朝那只丧尸扫了一眼,轻哼一声,随即就见空气中荡起一片无形的涟漪,丧尸们就像被风吹倒的芦苇丛,以帝馗为圆心,齐齐向四周倾倒。

Di Kui stopped and glanced coldly at the zombie. With a soft humph, invisible ripples form in the air. The zombies were like reeds blown down by the wind and fell all around with Di Kui as the epicenter.

    看到这一幕,尚可暗暗吸了一口凉气,再次确定,杀死丧尸王的英雄路线不适合他,还是主动把自己的脖子送到“主角”的剑下比较实际。

Shang Ke secretly gasped when he saw this scene. He once again confirmed that the heroic path of killing the zombie king didn’t suit him. It was more practical for him to take the initiative to send his own neck to the “protagonist’s” sword.

    被帝馗“哼”倒的丧尸们,纷纷收敛气焰,老老实实地散开,“依依不舍”地目送两人离开。只有十几只将级丧尸还跟在他们身后,不过十几分钟后,也各自离开,最后只剩下之前在大楼里遇到的那只小丧尸。

The zombies that had fallen due to Di Kui’s “humph” kept down their arrogance once after another, obediently dispersed and “reluctantly” watched them leave. Only around a dozen general level zombies were still following behind them. But around 10 -20 minutes later, they also left their own way. In the end, only the little zombie that they met in the building was still following them.

    帝馗带着尚可从黄昏走到入夜,然后像是想到什么一般,回头问道:“往那边走?”

Di Kui walked with Shang Ke from dusk to night. Then, as if remembering something, he turned around to ask, “Which way is it?”

    你终于想起问这个问题了!如果不是确定你的方向与基地完全相反,我还以为你认识路呢!

You finally remembered to ask this question! I would have thought that you knew the way if it weren’t for the fact that you are walking in the complete opposite direction from the base!

    尚可努力控制自己的面部表情,平静地说道:“继续往这边就对了。”

Shang Ke tried his best to control his facial expression and said calmly, “Just continue walking this way.”

    帝馗点点头,也没怀疑,一副“你说什么我都信”的模样。

Di Kui nodded his head and didn’t doubt him. He had a “I will believe whatever you say” look.

    两人又走了半个多小时,尚可突然出声道:“我有点累了,能不能休息一下?”

The two of them walked for about another half an hour when Shang Ke suddenly said, “I’m a little tired. Can we rest for a while?”

    仗着自己的不死之身,尚可大着胆子提出这个要求,尝试触摸帝馗的底线。

Shang Ke boldly made this request while relying on his immortal body. He wanted to test Di Kui’s bottom line.

    帝馗并没有生气,挥挥手便消失在原地,显然是同意了。

Di Kui didn’t get angry. With a wave of his hand, he disappeared from his original spot. It was clear that he agreed.

    尚可松了口气,在一面倒塌的墙壁边坐下,用水魔法清洗了一下身上的血迹,又换了一身干净的衣服。

Shang Ke let out a sigh of relief. He sat down beside a collapsed wall, used water magic to clean the blood stains on his body and changed into a clean set of clothes.

    将沾血的衣服放到一边,尚可正准备生火,烤几个土豆填填肚子,余光突然瞥见一道黑影从身边闪过,扑到刚才换下的衣服上,兴奋地滚成一团。

Shang Ke placed the blood stained clothes aside. He was preparing to make a fire to roast some potatoes to fill his stomach when he suddenly saw a black figure flashing past him from the corner of his eyes. The figure pounced onto the clothes he had just changed out from and rolled into a ball excitedly.

    是那只小丧尸。

It was the little zombie.

    尚可认出她后,便不再理会,继续做他的事。

After seeing that it was her, Shang Ke no longer cared about her and continued doing his things.

    小丧尸在衣服上翻滚了一会,然后拉扯着地将它穿在身上,松松垮垮的,看起来有些滑稽。

The little zombie rolled about the clothes for a while, then pulled and wore it on her body. It was loose and made her look very funny.

    尚可趁烤土豆的空档,往她那边瞅了几眼,结果看见她偏着脑袋,一口将自己的衣领撕咬下来,在嘴里嚼了嚼,然后又嫌弃地吐了出来。很显然,她对毫无口感的布料不感兴趣,只是喜欢沾在上面的血迹。

Shang Ke glanced at her a few times while he was roasting the potatoes. Then, he saw her leaning her head down and bite off his shirt collar and chewed it in her mouth. Then, she spat it out in disgust. She was obviously not interested in the tasteless fabric and only like the blood that stained the fabric.

    尚可:这凶残的娃,到底是饿了多久了啊……

Shang Ke: Just how long has this brutal child been hungry… 

    吃了两个土豆,尚可靠在墙边,打算假寐一会。就算没有睡意,也要尽量“睡”出一个时间差。

After eating two potatoes, Shang Ke leaned on the wall intending to nap for a while. He had to try his best to “sleep” for a while even if he wasn’t sleepy.

    不过多时,尚可感觉身边的气流有些异动,半睁开眼,帝馗就坐在他旁边。

After a while, Shang Ke felt some change to the airflow beside him. He opened his eyes a little and saw Di Kui sitting next to him.

    “你的血肉不好吃。”帝馗冷不丁来了这么一句。

“Your blood and flesh don’t taste good.” Di Kui said abruptly.

    尚可呵呵:真是谢谢的评价!

Shang Ke: Haha, thank you so much for your appraisal!

    “其他丧尸为什么喜欢吃?”帝馗像是在问尚可,又像是在自言自语。

“Why do the other zombies like it so much?” Di Kui seemed like he was asking Shang Ke, but also seemed like he was talking to himself.

    尚可沉默:他一点都不想和一只丧尸讨论自己的肉好不好吃!

Shang Ke was silent: He totally didn’t want to discuss with a zombie whether his flesh was delicious or not!

    “你很特别,你的肉也很特别。”他眉头深锁,似乎被这个问题困扰了很久,“为什么我就是不喜欢吃呢?”

“You’re very special and your flesh is also very special.” He frowned, seemingly troubled by this problem for a long time, “Just why is it that I do not like to eat it?”

    万幸你不喜欢吃!否则他岂不是要被反反复复地吃?

Fortunately, you do not like it! Otherwise, won’t he be eaten over and over again?

    “人类中,还有没有和你一样特别的品种?”帝馗十分认真地求教。

“Are there any other special varieties like you amongst the humans?” Di Kui asked very seriously.

    尚可:……不知道的,还以为你是让我给你介绍相亲对象。

Shang Ke: … Those that don’t know might think that you are asking me to introduce you to a blind date.

    “你怎么不说话?”帝馗眼中闪过两道凌厉寒光,说翻脸就翻脸的绝技耍得炉火纯青。

“Why aren’t you speaking?” A sharp cold glint flashed past Di Kui’s eyes. His skill at turning hostile immediately was perfect.

    尚可仿佛听到自己的神经瞬间绷紧的声音,他思索片刻,探试般地问道:“你喜欢吃什么?”

Shang Ke seemed to have heard the sound of his nerves tightening. He thought for a moment before he asked, “What do you like to eat?”

    “我如果知道还用问你吗?”帝馗一副“若不是为了寻找喜欢吃的食物我又怎么会纡尊降贵向一个人类求教”的冷傲表情。

“Why would I have to ask you if I knew?” Di Kui had a cold and proud ‘If it wasn’t for searching for a food that I liked to eat, why would I lower myself and ask a human’ expression.

    尚可忍了忍,尽量心平气和地说:“……我可以尝试帮你寻找食物。”

Shang Ke endured and tried to speak as calmly as possible: “…I can try to help you find food.”

    “怎么帮?”

“How?”

    “丧尸和人类的味觉应该有很大的不同,如果你愿意让我给你做几个测试,大概就能知道你对哪种味道比较敏感,然后再根据这种味道寻找相应的食材。”尚可算是看出来了,比起前往人类基地,帝馗显然对食物的兴趣更大。如果能够利用食物转移他的注意力,说不定可以为人类解决一场危机。

“Zombies and humans should have very different tastes. If you are willing to let me do a few tests for you, we will probably know which flavor you are more sensitive to. Then, we can find the corresponding ingredients according to your taste.” Shang Ke could tell that Di Kui was obviously more interested in food than heading to the human base. If he can make use of food to divert his attention, it might be able to solve a crisis for mankind.

    帝馗毫不犹豫地接受了尚可的提议。世俗人的猜疑、警惕和算计等等烧脑的玩意,对他这种无敌的存在没有任何意义。

Di Kui accepted Shang Ke’s proposal without hesitation. Ordinary people’s suspicion, vigilance and calculation etc kind of brain taxing stuff was meaningless to an invincible existence like him.

    满足了帝馗的要求,尚可这一晚上过得很平静。

After satisfying Di Kui’s request, Shang Ke enjoyed a very peaceful night.

    第二天整理行囊时,尚可瞥见不远处的空地上散落了一大片碎布,估计是小丧尸弄的,也没太在意。

When Shang Ke was packing his bag the next day, he caught sight of pieces of rags scattered over the ground. He reckons that it was done by the little zombie and didn’t care too much.

    等他见到小丧尸时,却惊异地发现,她的眼睛竟然变成了紫色。一夜之间,从准将级,进化到将级,智力似乎也有所提高,不再像之前那般疯疯癫癫,只是依然多动。

When he saw the little zombie, he was surprised to find that her eyes had turned purple. Within one night, she rose to a general level from her previous approaching-general level. Her intelligence seemed to have improved as well and she no longer acted as crazy as before. However, she was still hyperactive.

    尚可的眉头不着痕迹地皱了皱,不知是否是他多心,他总觉得小丧尸的突然进化,可能与他的血肉有关。

Shang Ke frowned. He didn’t know if he was just being suspicious, but he felt that the little zombie’s sudden evolution might be due to his flesh and blood.

    若真是如此,那岂不是意味着,所有吞食过他血肉的丧尸,都能够获得进化?

If that was the case, didn’t that mean that all the zombies who had consumed his blood and flesh would grow stronger?

    这么一想,尚可整个人都不好了。他又想起系统提供的其中一个任务选项——“被‘主角’杀死”。他原本觉得“主角”不太可能杀死他,因为他是唯一能够杀死丧尸王的人,但是如果他的血肉能够促使丧尸快速进化,那么他的存在对于整个人类都是一种威胁。

Shang Ke felt terrible thinking about this. He thought of one of the mission choices provided by the system— “Be killed by the ‘protagonist’”. He originally thought that the “protagonist” was unlikely to kill him as he was the only one who could kill the zombie king. But if his flesh and blood could cause the rapid evolution of zombies, then his existence was a threat to the entire human race.

    “主角”最好的处理方式,就是先让他杀死丧尸王,再将他杀死,永绝后患。

The best way the “protagonist” could handle this was to let him kill the zombie king first, then kill him and end this forever.

    如此看来,无论他是杀还是被杀,都是必死的结局,这还是最理想的状态,若丧尸王在他杀死他之前,先杀了“主角”,那么这个世界将彻底沦为丧尸的狩猎场。

It seemed that whether he was to kill or be killed, he had to die in the end. This was still the most ideal situation. If the zombie king killed the “protagonist” before Shang Ke could kill him, then this world would completely become a hunting ground for zombies.

    自己的不死之身可以为丧尸的进化提供无限养料,即使他最后成功将丧尸王杀死,他的血肉早晚还会培育出新的丧尸王。

His immortal body could provide unlimited nourishment for the evolution of zombies. Even if he succeeded in killing the zombie king, his flesh and blood would bring about a new zombie king sooner or later.

    所以,他必须先确保“主角”的安全,绝对不能让他死在帝馗的手上,更况且他还有可能是自己的男人。

Therefore, he must first ensure the safety of the “protagonist” and must not let him die in the hands of Di Kui. Moreover, he might even be his man.

    尚可心中很快做出计较,无论“主角”是不是他男人,他都要保住他的性命。

Shang Ke soon made up his mind. He must keep the “protagonist” alive regardless whether he was his man or not.

    “主角”的存在,是这场生死角逐的关键。只要有他在,就不会出现最坏的结局。

The “protagonist’s” existence was the key to ending this life and death match. The worst ending would not occur as long as he was around.

    “人类,收拾好了吗?”帝馗嘶哑的声音从远处传来。

“Human, are you done packing?” Di Kui’s hoarse voice came from afar.

    尚可收敛心神,背起大包,快步朝帝馗跑去。

Shang Ke collected his thoughts, carried the large bag, and ran quickly towards Di Kui.

    “不要叫我‘人类’。”尚可决定无所不用其极地和丧尸王打好关系。

“Don’t call me ‘human’.” Shang Ke decided to try his best to achieve a good relationship with the zombie king.

    “你是人类,我为什么不能叫你‘人类’?”

“You’re a human, what can’t I call you ‘human’?”

    “你是丧尸,我不是也该称你为‘丧尸’?”

“You’re a zombie, should I be calling you ‘zombie’ as well?”

    帝馗傲然道:“我不是丧尸,我是丧尸‘王’。”

Di Kui said proudly, “I’m not a zombie, I’m the zombie ‘king’.”

    那个“王”字咬得特别清晰,多一个字,就是与一般货色不一样。

He emphasised on the word “king” very clearly. Just one additional word made him different from the normal goods.

    “那以后叫你‘王’?”尚可随口接了一句,但接完就后悔了。

“Then I will call you ‘king’ from now on?” Shang Ke casually continued, but regretted immediately afterwards.

    果然,帝馗十分认可地点头:“就叫我‘王’。”

Indeed, Di Kui nodded his head in approval and said, “Just call me ‘king’.”

    尚可:“……”

Shang Ke: “…”

    “既然你叫我‘王’,那么我就叫你‘人’吧?”帝馗还懂得礼尚往来。

“Since you’re calling me ‘king’, then I will call you ‘human’?” Di Kui even knew to reciprocate.

    尚可:“……请叫我‘尚可’,谢谢。”

Shang Ke: “… Please call me ‘Shang Ke’. Thank you.”

    “尚可?好吧,尚可,什么时候开始测试?”

“Shang Ke? Okay, Shang Ke. When will we start the testing?”

    尚可回答:“搜集到不同味道的食材,就可以开始了。”

Shang Ke answered, “We can start after collecting ingredients of different flavours.”

    “很好。”

“Good.”

    两人一边“友好”地聊着天,一边朝着与人类基地完全相反的方向行进……

The two of them had their “friendly” conversation while heading towards the direction completely opposite of the human base…
