Chapter 211: Death Cycle (IX)


TL: Resonance

    尚可登上了距离他最近的一座瞭望塔,站在塔顶俯瞰整座基地。这种瞭望塔以前是城市的信号中心,现在基本已经作废,平时只有想看风景的人才会上来逛逛。

Shang Ke went up the watchtower closest to him and looked at the entire base from the top of the tower. This kind of watchtower used to be the city’s signal center, but it is practically unused now. Usually, only people who wish to see the scenery would come up and take a look.

    尚可集中精神力,以自己为中心,缓缓向外推进,随着搜索范围不断扩大,一团团闪烁不定的魂火接二连三地出现在他的感知中,普通人的魂火为白色,大部分异能者的魂火都是红色,七级以上的异能者,则以青色和紫色居多。

Shang Ke concentrated his mental power and spread it outwards slowly with him as the center. As his searching range continues to expand, numerous flickering soul fires appear in his perception one after another. The ordinary people’s soul fire is white, most ability users’ soul fire is red, and level seven and above ability users are mostly green and purple.

    中低级丧尸没有魂火,红眼以上的高级丧尸,体内会凝结出晶灵石,根据能量属性,呈现不同的色彩,如同一颗颗璀璨的星子,闪耀着美丽的光芒。很难想象,丑陋而凶残的丧尸,竟然能够孕育出如此美丽的东西。

Low and intermediate level zombies do not have soul fires. Red-eyed and above high level zombies would crystallise a crystalline in their body. The colour of the crystalline would be different depending on the zombie’s attribute. The crystallines shone a beautiful light like bright stars. It was very difficult to imagine that such ugly and brutal zombies could actually give birth to something so beautiful.

    尚可的感知世界,没有人类和丧尸的区别,只有一片盎然生机。

In Shang Ke’s perception world, there was no difference between humans and zombies. It was just full of life.

    搜索了许久,尚可始终没有找到属于帝馗的金色魂火,倒是发现了一团罕见的蓝色魂火,那团魂火的主人正在追击一只潜入基地的高级丧尸。

Shang Ke searched for a long time but was unable to find the golden soul fire belonging to Di Kui from beginning to end. Instead, he found a rare blue soul fire. The owner of that soul fire was currently chasing after a high level zombie that sneaked into the base.

    尚可并不知道,当他放开感知时,他也出现在了别人的感知中。

Shang Ke didn’t know that when he opened up his perception, he also appeared in other people’s perception.

    他的魂火,在黑色的感知世界,如同太阳一般,闪烁着耀眼的光芒。

In the dark perception world, his soul fire was like the sun shining with dazzling light.

    一个人影走进瞭望塔,转瞬间便来到塔顶,悄无声息地出现在尚可的身后。

A figure walked into the watchtower and arrived at the top in an instant, appearing silently behind Shang Ke.

    尚可似有所觉,正要回头,突然感觉一道劲风从身边扫过,随即便听到那只隐藏在暗处的小丧尸发出一声惨叫,被迫现出身形。然后尚可惊异地发现她的影子好像被什么力量禁锢了,任凭她如何挣扎都无法挣脱。

Shang Ke seems to have sensed it. Just when he was about to look back, he felt a strong wind swept by. He heard the little zombie who had been hiding in the darkness let out a scream and was forced to reveal itself. Then, Shang Ke was surprised to find that her shadow seems to be imprisoned by some kind of power. She couldn’t break free no matter how hard she struggled.

    一出手便制住一只将级丧尸,来人的实力可见一斑。

A general-level zombie was stopped with just one shot. The strength of the person coming was evident.

    “这种时候不要一个人跑出来,很危险。”一个低沉的声音似远似近地在耳边响起。

“Don’t run out alone at a time like this, it’s very dangerous.” A low voice sounded in his ear seemingly from afar yet nearby.

    尚可循声望去,当他看清来人的面貌时,眼中立刻闪过一丝讶异,竟然是……霍轩?

Shang Ke looked towards the source of the voice. When he saw the face of the person coming clearly, a hint of surprise flashed past his eyes. It turns out to be… Huo Xuan?

    他就这样出现在他面前,挺拔的身姿,冷峻的气质,似曾相识的气息……但是与帝馗一样,这股气息并不强烈。两人最大的不同是,一个拥有旺盛的生气,一个透着浓浓的死气;一个如刀锋般,冷锐凌厉,一个如火山般,狂暴凶狠。

He appeared in front of him just like that with his upright posture, cold temperament and that familiar breath… But just like Di Kui, that presence wasn’t strong. The greatest difference between the two of them was: One was full of life energy, while the other was full of death energy. One was cold and sharp like a blade, while the other was violent and fierce like a volcano.

    见到了一直想见的人,尚可却依然无法做出准确的判断。他和帝馗,到底谁才是他真正的恋人?

Shang Ke met the person he always wanted to meet, but he was still unable to make an accurate judgment. Between him and Di Kui, just who was his true lover?

    霍轩静静望着眼前的男子,感知中的金色光芒与他融为一体,化作一团金色火焰,在他心中炽烈地燃烧着。

Huo Xuan looked quietly at the man in front of him. The golden light in his perception merged with the person in front of him and turned into a golden flame, burning fiercely in his heart.

    “你的名字?”霍轩问。

“What’s your name?” Huo Xuan asked.

    “尚可。”

“Shang Ke.”

    尚可……霍轩在心中默念了一遍,然后从他身边走过,朝那只小丧尸走去。

Shang Ke… Huo Xuan repeated the name silently in his heart. Then, he walked past Shang Ke and headed towards the little zombie.

    小丧尸察觉到危险,喉咙里发出尖利的嘶吼。

The little zombie sensed the danger and let out a sharp roar.

    霍轩缓缓抬起手,几束银色光芒在他手臂上交织盘旋,凌厉的剑气,在空中发出嗡嗡的震响,随即如闪电般向小丧尸疾射而去。

Huo Xuan slowly raised his hand and a few silver rays intertwined and circled around his arm. The fierce sword energy let out a buzzing sound in the air, then shot towards the little zombie like lightning.

    下一瞬,剑气在距离小丧尸不过几公分的位置,诡异地凝滞了,然后化作片片银光,骤然消散。

The next moment, the sword energy stagnated strangely when it was only a few centimeters away from the little zombie. Then, it turned into pieces of silver light and dissipated.

    小丧尸趁机挣脱霍轩的禁锢,快速窜出窗口,逃得无影无踪。

The little zombie took the opportunity to break free from Huo Xuan’s imprisonment. It quickly burst out of the window and escaped without a trace.

    霍轩没有理会那只小丧尸,转头朝某个方向望去,眼中闪过一丝冷冽的寒光。

Huo Xuan ignored the little zombie. He turned his head towards a certain direction and a cold glint flashed passed his eyes.

    随后,他身形一动,瞬间消失在原地。

Then, his figure moved and instantly disappeared from the spot.

    帝馗的气息就在不远处,刚才正是他救下了小丧尸,霍轩匆匆离开,肯定是去找他。

Di Kui’s aura was closeby. It was him who saved the little zombie just now. Huo Xuan definitely went looking for him when he left so hurriedly.

    尚可皱了皱眉,正打算追上去,突然感觉身边一阵波动,然后就见原本离开的霍轩又出现在他面前,递给他一个精美的小瓶子,说道:“这个送给你。”

Shang Ke furrowed his brow and was about to give chase when he felt some fluctuations behind him. Then, he saw Huo Xuan who had originally left appear before him again. Huo Xuan passed him a small exquisite bottle and said, “This is for you.”

    尚可不明所以地接过瓶子,冷不丁瞥见他掌心的痣,心惊之下,正要询问,眼前的男人却又消失了。

Shang Ke took the bottle in confusion and suddenly caught a glimpse of the mole on his palm. He got shocked and was about to ask about it but the man before him disappeared again.

    霍轩身上的气息,并不足以让他完全确认身份,但他掌心的痣,是帝馗没有的一个重要特征。所以,霍轩更有可能是他的恋人?

The breath on Huo Xuan’s body wasn’t enough for Shang Ke to fully confirm his identity, but the mole on his palm was an important feature Di Kui didn’t have. So, Huo Xuan is more likely to be his lover?

    尚可的思绪有些乱,低头看向霍轩刚才送给他的小瓶子,瓶身晶莹剔透,里面装着淡粉色的液体,看起来就像粉水晶一般。

Shang Ke’s thoughts were in a mess. He lowered his head and looked at the small bottle Huo Xuan gave him earlier. The bottle was crystal clear and was holding pale pink liquid inside, looking very much like a pink crystal.

    尚可打开瓶盖,一股淡雅的清香立刻在空中,让他的精神为之一振。

Shang Ke opened the bottle cap and an elegant france immediately permeated the air, making him feel refreshed.

    原来是香水。

Turns out it was perfume.

    奇怪,无缘无故地,干嘛送他香水?

Strange. Why would Huo Xuan give him perfume for no reason?

    正在不解时,视线不经意落在自己那只被包成粽子的手上,心中恍然,难道是因为这个?

While he was feeling puzzled, his line of sight landed inadvertently on his hand that was wrapped up like Zongzi and a thought came to his mind. Don’t tell me it’s because of this?

    之前为了掩饰鲜血的气味,他在绷带上喷了不少香水。虽然是过期香水,但它的气味也不至于难闻到让人不堪忍受、甚至另外赠送一瓶香水的地步吧?

He had sprayed plenty of perfume on the bandage previously to hide the smell of blood. Although it was expired perfume, the smell wasn’t bad to the point of being unbearable or even to the point of needing him to give another bottle of perfume right?

    第一次见面,居然就被那个可能是他恋人的男人嫌弃了?尚可感觉自己整个人都不好了。

This is the first time they met and he was already disliked by the man who might be his lover? Shang Ke felt terrible all over.

    正在纠结中,地面突然传来剧烈的震动,随即是一股庞大的能量波动,如巨浪般向四周荡开,建筑墙体相继龟裂,八级以下的异能者全部跪倒,普通战士更是七窍流血。

While he was feeling tangled, there was a sudden violent vibration on the ground. Then, there was a huge energy fluctuation spreading out in all directions like a huge wave. The building walls cracked one after another. All ability users below level eight knelt down and ordinary fighters bleeded from their seven orifices.

    不只是基地内部的人类受到了冲击,就连基地外面的丧尸也没有幸免,最靠近基地的丧尸一片片栽倒,距离稍远一点的丧尸,也都匍匐在地,停滞不前。

It’s not just the humans inside the base that were affected, even the zombies outside the base were not spared. The zombies closest to the base fell one after another and zombies which were further away all crawled on the ground and didn’t continue advancing forward.

    这股能量波动转瞬即逝,战斗却仿佛在这一秒结束了,无论是人类还是丧尸,都遭到了一次严重的暴击伤害,暂时没有能力继续厮杀。

This energy fluctuation lasted for a very short time, but the fighting seemed to have ended in this second. Both humans and zombies suffered a severe critical hit and were temporarily unable to continue fighting.

    瞭望塔上的尚可倒是没有受到太大的影响,按照他的体质,面对这种能量冲击应该是九死一生才对,但他却是完好无损。

Shang Ke who was on the watchtower wasn’t affected much. With his physique, it should be deadly for him when facing the impact of this energy. However, he was completely fine.

    难道只有物理攻击才能伤到他,异能攻击则对他无效?

Is it possible that only physical attacks can hurt him and ability attacks are ineffective against him?

    想想自己几次被“杀”,都是因为帝馗的武力。昨晚帝馗生气时所爆发的能量,连墙壁桌椅都能震裂,却没有伤到他一分一毫。如此看来,他或许真的可以免疫所有异能!

Thinking about it, the few times he was “killed” were all because of Di Kui’s physical might. Last night when Di Kui flared up due to anger, the walls, tables and chairs cracked but he wasn’t hurt at all. Judging by this, he might really be immune to all abilities!

    他之前就觉得奇怪,同样得到了精魄,为什么帝馗和霍轩的实力获得了超神级的提升,只有他,除了死去活来之外,没有任何变化?

He had felt that it was strange before. All three of them got a spirit piece, why is it that Di Kui and Huo Xuan both had an extreme improvement in their strength, but only him didn’t have any change other than having an immortal body?

    原来他不是没有变化,而是一直没有发现,他其实也是拥有特殊能力的人,那就是免疫异能。

Turns out it wasn’t that he didn’t have any change but just that he never realised. He is actually someone with special abilities too, and that was immunity to abilities.

    尚可沉默了:免疫异能……有什么卵用?

Shang Ke was silent: Immunity to abilities… What’s the use of it?

    可以让他避免被分尸的命运吗?可以让他躲过某只丧尸王的巴掌吗?可以让他成为高手中的高手,杀人于千里之外吗?

Can it help him avoid the fate of being torn apart? Can it help him escape from a certain zombie king’s slap? Can it help him become an expert amongst experts and kill anyone he wants?

    不能!

No!

    帝馗不用异能也能拍死他,丧尸们依然觊觎他的肉体,他的武力值,也只能在普通人面前显摆一下。

Di Kui can beat him to death even without using any abilities and zombies still covet his flesh. His strength can only be shown off in front of ordinary people.

    尚可终于有点明白“他”为什么是“路人甲”了……

Shang Ke finally understood why “he” was called “Passerby A”… 

    帝馗和霍轩两人并没有碰面,只是一次隔空对决,便产生了这样的威力。如果多来几次,基地中恐怕没有几个人能全身而退。

Di Kui and Huo Xuan didn’t meet at all. Just one showdown in the air produced such power. If they go on for a few more rounds, probably only a few people in the base can leave intact.

    虽然丧尸群暂时退去了,但两股强大的能量,给众人所带来的震撼,仍然没有消散。有人猜到了其中一人可能是霍轩,另外一人的身份,却无人知晓。谁也不会想到出手的居然是一只丧尸王,这只丧尸王还和他们在同一个基地里安安稳稳地睡了一夜……

Although the zombies have temporarily retreated, the two powerful energies made everyone shocked and they still didn’t scatter. Someone guessed that one of them might be Huo Xuan, but no one knew the identity of the other person. No one would have thought that the one who striked was actually a zombie king, and this zombie king had even spent a night peacefully in the base with them… 

    尚可从瞭望塔上下来,看到一片狼藉的基地,三三两两的佣兵们从他身边走过,有些满脸是血,有些步履蹒跚,身上或多或少都带着伤,只有少数几名高手看起来完好无损。所以,当衣着整洁、一尘不染的尚可出现在人群中时,立刻吸引不少人敬畏的目光。

When Shang Ke came down from the watchtower, he saw a messy base. Mercenaries walked past him in groups of two and threes. Some of them had faces covered in blood while some walked in faltering steps with various degrees of injuries. Only a few experts looked fully intact. Hence, when the neatly dressed and spotless Shang Ke appeared in front of the crowd, he immediately attracted a lot of admiring gaze.

    他们都将尚可当作了绝世高手,再加上他的颜值,俨然就是新一代男神。众人纷纷打听他的身份,最后好不容易才从宋斌几人口中得到一些信息。

They all regarded Shang Ke as a peerless expert. After adding in his appearance, he was just like a new generation adonis. Everyone inquired about his identity and finally got some information from Song Bin’s team.

    尚可回到房间,发现帝馗已经回来了,此刻正蹲坐在窗台上,嘴里叼着一个奶瓶,衣服破破烂烂地挂在身上,一副老僧入定的模样。

Shang Ke returned back to his room and realised that Di Kui was already back. He was currently squatting on the windowsill while holding onto a milk bottle in his mouth. His clothes hang tattered on his body making him look like a monk entering meditation.

    他见尚可回来,转头对他说:“我见过‘他’了,也不怎么样。”

Seeing that Shang Ke was back, he turned to him and said, “I’ve seen ‘him’ and he wasn’t much.”

    没头没尾的一句话,尚可却神奇地听懂了。

What he was talking about came out of nowhere but Shang Ke was able to understand what he was talking about mysteriously.

    他迟疑地问:“你怎么会对他感兴趣?”

He asked hesitantly, “Why are you interested in him? “

    两人一起旅行的这段时间,帝馗从来没提过霍轩的名字,显然对这位人王的存在并不在意。所以他今天突然发难,确实让尚可有些不解。

During the time they traveled together, Di Kui never mentioned Huo Xuan’s name before. He obviously didn’t care about the existence of this human king. Hence, Shang Ke was puzzled why he suddenly made trouble today.

    “不知道,就是想杀了他。”帝馗一边无意识地咬着奶嘴,一边闷声闷气地说。

“I don’t know. I just feel like killing him.” Di Kui bit on the teat unconsciously while saying unhappily.

    尚可:……早知道你是一只单纯暴力不做作的丧尸王,但咱们可不可以稍微文明一点?

Shang Ke: … I know you are a zombie king who is simple, violent and unpretentious, but can we be a little more civilized?

    尚可见他的奶瓶空了,又递给他一瓶满的。

Shang Ke saw that his milk bottle was empty and passed him another bottle.

    帝馗将手上的空奶瓶递给尚可,接过另外那瓶,顺势放进嘴里。

Di Kui passed the empty milk bottle in his hand to Shang Ke, took the other bottle and put it in his mouth.

    尚可发现手上这只空瓶的奶嘴已经被咬掉了,只剩下一个参差不齐的孔洞。

Shang Ke realised that the teat of the empty milk bottle in his hand was already bitten off. All that’s left is an uneven hole.

    对于丧尸王的胃,尚可一直是敬畏的。

Shang Ke has always been in awe of the zombie king’s stomach.

    他将那只惨遭蹂躏的奶瓶扔进垃圾桶,思索着如何让帝馗放弃杀死霍轩的念头。这次还只是试探,下次恐怕就要来真格的了。

He threw the brutally ravaged milk bottle into the rubbish bin and thought about how to make Di Kui give up the idea of ​​killing Huo Xuan. He was only sounding out this time. They will probably fight for real next time.

    他可以杀死帝馗,而帝馗可以杀死霍轩,一旦霍轩死了,那么他为了完成任务,无论如何都只能选择杀死帝馗。

He can kill Di Kui and Di Kui can kill Huo Xuan. Once Huo Xuan is dead, he can only choose to kill Di Kui if he wishes to complete his mission.

    实际上,他潜意识中,早已选择了那条被霍轩杀死的任务路线。如此一来,他便不必再左右为难。

In fact, he has already chosen the mission route of being killed by Huo Xuan subconsciously. In this way, he doesn’t have to be in a dilemma.

    尚可随即又想到,既然如此,他何必再确认两人的身份?这个世界的任务与其他世界不同,无论他如何挣扎,最终都必须选择一次死亡。与其在产生感情后杀死对方或者被对方杀死,还不如在毫无感情时做个了断。

Shang Ke immediately thought of it: If that’s the case, why did he still need to confirm the identity of the two? The mission in this world is different from other worlds. No matter how he struggles, he must still choose to die in the end. Rather than killing the other party or being killed by the other party after having feelings, it is better to end it when he has no feelings for the other party.

    正在思索间,门外突然传来一阵敲门声。

While he was thinking, knocking sounds could be heard from outside.

    “尚可。”

“Shang Ke.”

    听到这个声音,尚可整个人都懵了,怎么是霍轩?!现在基地乱成一团,他这个领导者不去主持大局,反而跑到这里来干什么!

Shang Ke was stunned when he heard this voice. Why is it Huo Xuan?! The base is currently in a mess. Why is this leader not out there presiding over the situation but instead running here!

    尚可下意识朝帝馗看去,那家伙脸上毫无波动,手上的奶瓶却被他捏成了渣渣,白色的汁液顺着他的指尖流淌下来,然后就见他轻盈地从窗台上跳下来,缓步向门口走去。

Shang Ke looked towards Di Kui subconsciously. There was no change in expression on that person’s face, but the milk bottle in his hand has already been crushed into crumbs and white liquid flowed down his finger tips. Then, Shang Ke saw him jumped down from the windowsill agilely and walked slowly to the door.

    尚可一个箭步冲上去,一把抱住他的腰,温声道:“别出去。”

Shang Ke dashed forward and hugged his waist, gently saying, “Don’t go out.”
