Chapter 209: Death Cycle (VII)


TL: Resonance

    形象改造,从头开始。

Image change starting from scratch.

    帝馗的头发也不知道有多久没有洗过了,一缕一缕纠缠在一起,看起来就像一只八爪鱼。尚可帮他洗头时,原本做好了顺便清理虱子的准备,结果发现他头发里根本没有虱子,看来虱子也无法在丧尸王身上存活……

He didn’t know how long it had been since Di Kui washed his hair. His hair was all tangled together and looked like an octopus. When Shang Ke helped him wash his hair, he was prepared to clean up the lice along the way. However, he realised that there was no lice on Di Kui’s hair at all. Seems like even lice are unable to survive on the zombie king’s body… 

    尚可耐心地帮他将头发梳理柔顺,用的是……过期洗发水。他也是没办法,废弃城镇里找到的日常用品,大多都过期了。好在这个时代的产品质量过硬,虽然已经过期,但效果还可以,所以尚可很黑心地给他用了!

Shang Ke patiently helped him smoothen out his hair. What he used was… expired shampoo. He didn’t have a choice. Most of the daily necessities found in abandoned towns are expired. Fortunately, the products of this area are of excellent quality. Although the shampoo expired, its effect was still okay. Hence, Shang Ke used it on Di Kui blackheartedly!

    帝馗的头发自然蓬松,尚可给他剪了一个略微倾斜的中短发,让他的五官看起来更柔和一点,又不失男人味。

Di Kui’s hair was naturally puffy. Shang Ke helped him cut a slightly sloped medium short hair, making his facial features look softer yet not losing his manliness.

    发型搞定后,接着就是皮肤护理,或许称为“化妆”更合适一点。帝馗肌肉坚硬,苍白的皮肤上布满灰蓝色的尸斑,嘴唇呈暗紫色,不言不语、不走不动时,看起来和一具尸体没什么两样。

After Shang Ke was done with the hair, next up was skin care. Maybe it’s more appropriate to call it “make-up”. Di Kui’s muscles were hard, his pale skin was covered with greyish-blue corpse spots and his lips were dark purple. When he doesn’t speak or move, he looks just like a corpse.

    尚可花了几天时间,从各个商城中,搜集了大把化妆用品,当然,也是过期的。

Shang Ke spent a few days collecting lots of cosmetics from various malls. Of course, they were all expired.

    先将他从头到尾冲洗干净,然后开始在脸部、颈部以及上身和四肢上涂抹米分底。这种米分底不溶于水,只能用专门的卸妆水进行清洗,理论上可以保留七天,不过普通人类一般两天内就会卸妆,以免伤到皮肤,帝馗却不用担心这个问题。

He first washed Di Kui up from head to toe. Then, he applied foundation on Di Kui’s face, neck, upper body and four limbs. This kind of foundation is not soluble in water and can only be removed using special makeup remover. Normal humans would remove their makeup within two days so as to not damage the skin, but Di Kui doesn’t have to worry about this.

    帝馗躺在床上,望着近在咫尺的尚可,任由他在自己身上涂涂抹抹,金色瞳孔中闪烁着异样的光芒。

Di Kui lay on the bed and looked at Shang Ke who was close to him. He let Shang Ke apply the foundation on his body while his golden eyes shone strangely.

    最后,尚可拿出润唇膏,在帝馗的嘴唇上滑过。帝馗还以为是吃的,张口就咬进了嘴里。

Finally, Shang Ke took out a lip balm and slid it over Di Kui’s lips. Di Kui thought that it was food as he opened his mouth and bit into his mouth.

    “这个不能吃!”尚可来不及阻止,只能惊悚地盯着他,生怕他突然暴起将他拍死。

“You can’t eat this!” Shang Ke didn’t manage to stop him in them and could only stare at him in horror, afraid that he would flare up and beat him to death.

    帝馗嚼了几下,然后面无表情地……吞掉了。

Di Kui chewed a few times and… swallowed it expressionlessly.

    尚可默了一会,问:“……味道怎么样?”

Shang Ke was silent for a moment before asking, “…How does it taste?”

    “难吃。”

“Terrible.”

    很好,至少你的味觉还没有超出生物的范畴。

Good. At least your taste in food is not out of the biological category.

    尚可莫名松了口气,又取过另外一只唇膏,提醒道:“这是用来润唇的,可以让你的唇色变得自然美观。”

Shang Ke was inexplicably relieved. He took out another lip balm and reminded, “This is for applying onto your lips. It can make your lip colour look more natural and beautiful.”

    帝馗的视线不自觉落在尚可的嘴唇上,水润饱满,娇艳欲滴,看起来似乎很可口。

Di Kui’s line of sight landed unconsciously on Shang Ke’s lips. It was moist, plump, delicate and gorgeous and seemed delicious.

    尚可俯下身来,温热的气息拂过帝馗的面颊,让他的心脏出现了不规则的跳动。

Shang Ke bent down and his warm breath brushed past Di Kui’s check, making his heart beat irregularly.

    待他帮他涂好唇膏,正要起身之际,帝馗突然伸手扶住他的后脑,仰头咬住他的嘴唇,鲜血顿时从唇齿间渗出,缓缓流入帝馗的嘴中。

When Shang Ke was done applying the lip balm and was about to get up, Di Kui suddenly stretched out his hand and held the back of Shang Ke’s head. Di Kui lifted his head and bit Shang Ke’s lip. Fresh blood immediately started oozing out from Shang Ke’s lip and slowly flowed into Di Kui’s mouth.

    尚可保持弯腰的动作,眼睁睁地看着帝馗啃咬自己的嘴唇,是真的“啃、咬”!

Shang Ke maintained his bent posture and watched helplessly as Di Kui bit his lips. It was the real “biting”!

    为了保住自己的嘴唇,尚可捧住他的脸,用舌头引导他从凶残的啃咬变成温情的舔吻。他的脑袋还在帝馗手上,如果选择挣扎反抗,后果必然不堪设想。所以他选择了最温和最保险的方式,顺势力导。

To save his lips, Shang Ke held Di Kui’s face and used his tongue to guide Di Kui from his brutal biting to tender kissing. His head was still held by Di Kui’s hand, if he chose to resist and struggle, the consequences will be unimaginable. Hence, he chose the most gentle and safest method and guided the force.

    尚可的引导很快取得了成效,帝馗逐渐放松力度,如同游戏一般,饶有兴味地追逐着他的唇舌。

Shang Ke’s guiding soon bore results. Di Kui gradually reduced his strength. He chased after Shang Ke’s tongue with interest as if playing a game.

    帝馗原本只是突然觉得尚可很好吃,但唇齿的纠缠,竟也别有一番滋味,让他有些欲罢不能。随着亲吻的深入,他的体内仿佛燃起一团炽热的火焰,眼神也变得异常闪亮。

Originally, Di Kui suddenly felt that Shang Ke looked delicious. However, the entanglement of their lips brought about another kind of relish making him unable to stop. As the kiss deepened, a flame seemed to have been ignited within him and his eyes also became strangely bright.

    正当他热切地想要更进一步时,动作却突然停止了。

Just as he eagerly wanted to go one step further, his movement suddenly stopped.

    两人紧贴的双唇间,流出一股股鲜血。

A stream of blood started flowing between their joined lips.

    尚可脸上的痛苦之色,让帝馗放开了对他的禁锢,然后静静望着他。

The pained expression on Shang Ke’s face made Di Kui release him from the imprisonment. Then, he watched Shang Ke silently.

    尚可捂着嘴,后退一步。

Shang Ke covered his mouth and took one step back.

    就在刚才,他的舌头被某只丧尸王给咬掉了……如此凶残的吻,简直前所未有!

Just now, his tongue got bitten off by a certain zombie king… Such an unprecedented brutal kiss!

    难怪这家伙没朋友!一个吻就咬掉别人的舌头,如果做爱岂不是要了别人的命?!尚可只能祈祷这家伙不是他男人,否则未来的日子必然水深火热,死去活来。

No wonder this fellow doesn’t have friends! He bit off someone’s tongue with just a kiss, wouldn’t he take the other person’s life if he makes love?! Shang Ke could only pray that this fellow wasn’t his lover. Or else, his future days would certainly be miserable and deadly.

    尚可的身体能够自愈,但活着所受的伤,愈合速度比较慢,舌头修复足足花了一天时间。唯一庆幸的是,如今有丧尸王在身边,不同再担心被其他丧尸吃掉。

Shang Ke’s body can recover on its own, but the healing speed of his injury while he was alive was slower. His tongue took one whole day to recover. The only fortunate thing was that he no longer had to worry about being eaten by other zombies as he now had the zombie king around.

    至于那半截断掉的舌头,他一点都不想知道它的去向!

As for the severed tongue, he didn’t wish to know where it went at all!

    四天之后,尚可终于将帝馗装扮出一个人样。蓬松的短发,斜斜贴在脸侧,古铜色的肌肤,毫无瑕疵,眉如刀锋,目光锐利,两片厚实的嘴唇,透着几分性感和冷傲。上身依然只穿着一件黑色风衣,健美的胸肌一览无遗。下身穿着一条黑色皮裤,配上一条银灰色的宽腰带,一双深棕色的长靴,整个人看起来就两个字:酷、帅!

Four days later, Shang Ke finally managed to make Di Kui look like a human. His puffy short hair stick on the side of his face diagonally and his bronze coloured skin was flawless. His eyebrows were like blades and his eyes were sharp. His thick lips looked sexy and arrogant. He was still wearing a black trench coat for his top and his beautiful muscles could be seen at a glance. He wore a black leather pants and was paired with a wide silver-grey belt and a pair of dark brown boots. His whole person looks like two words: Cool, handsome!

    尚可最后又给他戴上一副墨镜,掩饰他过于特殊的眼瞳,一只可怖的丧尸王就这样变身成人了。尚可相信只要帝馗不暴走,即便是霍轩,恐怕也无法立刻识破他的身份。

Lastly, Shang Ke helped him put on sunglasses to cover his overly special eyes. A terrible zombie king became a human just like this. Shang Ke believed that as long as Di Kui doesn’t flare up, even Huo Xuan might not be able to see through his identity immediately.

    虽然已经改头换面,但尚可并没有将他带入人群的打算。对于朝夕相处的自己,他都能弄残弄死,更何况是与他毫无关系的闲杂人等。

Although Shang Ke already gave Di Kui a makeover, he didn’t have the intention to bring him to the human crowd. If Di Kui was able to be so cruel to Shang Ke who he got along with day and night, then what of those random people who had nothing to do with him?

    这段时间,还有一个意外的收获,那就是终于找到了一种勉强让帝馗满意的食物——牛奶!

He has also gained an unexpected result during this period of time. He finally found a food that barely satisfies Di Kui—Milk!

    没错,就是牛奶。尚可偶然遇到一支人类运输队,从他们那里换了不少食材,其中就有牛奶。原本是想用来做鲜奶虾仁的,随手让帝馗尝了一口,结果喝了个精光,似乎还意犹未尽。

That’s right, it’s milk. Shang Ke encountered a transport team by chance and exchanged for many ingredients from them, one of it being milk. He originally wanted to use it to make fried shrimps with milk. He casually let Di Kui try it but he ended up finishing it. He also seemed to still want more.

    尚可差点喜极而泣,当即将奶制品列入优先研究的食谱。在没有研究出成果前,暂时只能让丧尸王喝奶,为此,尚可还给他配备一个精致的奶瓶。

Shang Ke almost cried tears of joy and immediately included milk related products recipe into his priority research. Before his research bears any result, he could only let the zombie king drink milk first temporarily. Shang Ke even provided him with an exquisite milk bottle.

    最近丧尸王最喜欢做的事,就是喝完奶后,亲吻尚可。经过多次练习,他终于能够在保证不咬掉尚可舌头的情况下,与他维持10分钟的热吻。虽然“热吻”的结果是尚可嘴唇破裂,但比起断掉舌头,已经是飞跃式的进步了。

What the zombie king likes to do the most recently was to kiss Shang Ke after finishing his milk. After many rounds of practice, he could finally maintain 10 minutes of hot kiss without biting Shang Ke’s tongue off. Although the result of this “hot kiss” was Shang Ke’s lips being torn, it was still a great improvement from his tongue being severed.

    不知不觉中,一人一尸“和谐”地度过了一个多月,他们在废弃城市和偏远的郊区游走,偶尔遇到人类,也没有发生什么不可收拾的流血事件。

Unknowingly, the human and zombie pair spend more than a month “harmoniously” like this. They travelled in abandoned cities and remote outskirts. They met humans occasionally, but no out of hand bloodsheds occurred.

    尚可一直有意避开幸存者城市,但可供生存的空间就这么大,第二个月时,为了补充物资,他们还是进入了一个小型保护基地,这里主要作为人类佣兵的临时落脚点,可以购买物资,雇佣人手,运送货物等等。

Shang Ke has been deliberately avoiding survivors’ cities, but there was only so much living space. In the second month, they still entered a small protected base to replenish their supplies. This place mainly acts as a temporary resting place for human mercenaries. They could buy supplies, employ manpower, transport goods and so on.

    尚可带着帝馗走在热闹的街道上,周围都是来来往往的人类。

Shang Ke brought Di Kui along and walked on the lively street with humans coming and going all around.

    帝馗脸上戴着墨镜,看不出表情,但脚步闲适,心情应该还不错。其他人也没有发现什么异常,只是隐约感觉到帝馗的强大,忍不住会多看几眼。

Di Kui was wearing sunglasses and his expression couldn’t be seen. However, his steps were leisurely, so his mood should be quite good. Other people didn’t notice any oddity. They just faintly felt that Di Kui was very strong and couldn’t help but take a few more glances.

    尚可没敢耽搁,快速找到兑换中心,用晶灵石兑换物资,主要是交通工具和食物。

Shang Ke didn’t dare delay. He quickly found the exchange center and used the crystallines to exchange for some supplies. He mainly exchanged for a vehicle and food.

    原本他们并不需要交通工具,但牛奶的数量实在太多,不得不购买一辆空间比较大的货车。

He originally didn’t need a vehicle, but the amount of milk was just too much. He had no choice but to buy a truck with relatively larger space.

    正在等待物资筹备时,尚可突然听到有人提到“霍轩”的名字,心念一动,竖起耳朵。虽然两人的声音很小,但在精神力高度集中下,他的感识非常敏锐。

While Shang Ke was waiting for the supplies to be prepared, he suddenly heard someone mention “Huo Xuan”. His mind jumped and he perked up his ears. Although the two people’s voices were very soft, his senses are very keen if he greatly concentrates his mental powers.

    “你说的是真的?霍老大就在这里?”一名佣兵用难掩兴奋的声音小声问,“他怎么会到这里来?”

“Is what you said true? Boss Huo is here?” A mercenary couldn’t hide his excitement and asked softly, “Why is he here?”

    这座小型基地位置偏远,霍轩身为中心主基地的掌权者,不可能无缘无故地出现在这里。

This small base was quite far away. As the leader of the central main base, Huo Xuan wouldn’t appear here for no reason.

    “听说是为了对付一只厉害的将级丧尸,这只丧尸已经杀了不少高手。”另一名佣兵警惕地环视四周,低声回道,“这件事还是一个秘密,你可别到处乱说,待会跟我报名参加‘影月’的招募,霍老大就在这支队伍中。”

“I heard that it is for dealing with a powerful general level zombie. This zombie has already killed many experts.” The other mercenary looked around vigilantly and said softly, “This matter is still a secret, don’t talk about it anywhere else. Sign up with me later for ‘Shadowmoon’ recruitment. Boss Huo is in this team.”

    那名佣兵连连点头,脸上满是激动和崇拜。

That mercenary nodded his head and his face was full of excitement and admiration.

    霍轩也在这里?

Huo Xuan is here too?

    尚可忍不住心跳,原本打算补充完物资就离开,如今听到这个消息,立刻决定多留一晚,至少让他见霍轩一面。

Shang Ke’s heart couldn’t help but jump. He had originally intended to leave the base after replenishing their supplies. Now that he heard this piece of news, he immediately decided to stay one more night and at least meet Huo Xuan.

    帝馗察觉到他的情绪,忍不住朝他看过来。

Di Kui perceived his mood and couldn’t help but look at him.

    尚可收敛心神,征询道:“今天在这里留宿一晚好吗?”

Shang Ke came back from his thoughts and asked, “Can we stay here for one night?”

    帝馗不置可否地点点头。

Di Kui nodded his head noncommittally.

    一直以来,尚可都是从容不迫的,即使面对死亡时,也不曾激动过,但刚才却出现了异常的情绪波动,到底是什么引起了他的注意,难道是那个叫“霍老大”的人?

Shang Ke have always been calm. He was never agitated even when facing death. However, he had an abnormal mood fluctuation just now. Just what was it that attracted his attention? Could it be the person called “Boss Huo”?

    帝馗不喜欢这种感觉,虽然还没见过面,但他已经将那个“霍老大”打入黑名单了。

Di Kui didn’t like this kind of feeling. They hadn’t met before, but Di Kui has already placed “Boss Huo” into his blacklist.

    物资筹备好后,尚可带着帝馗离开兑换中心,前往影月佣兵团的招募地点。

When the preparation of supplies was done, Shang Ke left the exchange center with Di Kui and headed to the recruitment location of the Shadowmoon Mercenary Group.

    “影月”是古蓝星十大佣兵团之一,排位第五,成员遍布各地。团长是霍轩战队中的一员,名叫“百木”,异能八级。

“Shadowmoon” is one of the ten major mercenary groups on planet Gulan. It is ranked fifth and has members from all over. The head of the group was one of the members in Huo Xuan’s team, a level eight ability user called “Bai Mu”.

    影月的招募地点,围观的人虽然不少,但报名的并不多,一是因为大部分人不知道霍轩在影月,二是因为招募的佣兵等级,最低都是六级。光第二点就排除了基地中三分之二的异能者。

The Shadowmoon’s recruitment location had many onlookers, but the number of people signing up was few. One reason was because most people didn’t know that Huo Xuan was in Shadowmoon. The second reason was because the minimum level of mercenary recruited is level six. Just the second reason alone ruled out two-third of the ability users in the base.

    尚可四下搜索了一番,并没有发现类似霍轩的人物。想来也是,既然是秘密行动,又怎么会随便在大庭广众下露面。

Shang Ke looked around but didn’t find anyone that looks like Huo Xuan. That’s normal. Since it was a secret operation, how could he casually show up in the public.

    作为人类英雄,霍轩的形象早已深入人心。他今年不过三十三岁,十五岁成为七级异能者,十七岁得到明境精魄,十八岁建立第一座幸存者基地,之后十几年,一直致力于基地的建设和人才的笼络,最终发展成如今的局面,为人类撑起了一把强力的保护伞。

As the hero of humanity, the image of Huo Xuan has long been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. He is only 33 years old this year. He became a level seven ability user at age 15, gained the bright boundary spirit piece at age 17 and built the first survivors’ base at age 18. For the next 10+ years, he has been committed to the construction of bases and the recruitment of talents. Then, he eventually developed to what it is now and held up a powerful protective umbrella for mankind.

    尚可打听到影月的住处,便离开了招募地点。

Shang Ke found out where the Shadowmoon mercenaries were staying and left the recruitment location.

    结果发现影月包下了整座大楼,外人无法入住,尚可只好在附近另外选择了一个落脚点,静待时机。

Then, he realised that Shadowmoon booked the entire building and outsiders cannot stay inside. Shang Ke could only choose another resting place nearby and wait for the chance.

    注意力全部集中在霍轩身上的尚可,完全没发现某只丧尸王的心情越来越糟糕……

Shang Ke whose attention is all on Huo Xuan completely didn’t realise a certain zombie king’s mood was getting worse…

    Thank you Snowy for translating this work! this is one of my most-awaited updates!
    I was wondering what the unlimited death cycle meant… thought it was a speed run of all other worlds they’ve transmigrated to. So it was this 🤔 interesting, I wonder if both the protag and Zombie King is our ML, but that would be such a mess
