Chapter 217: Death Cycle (XV)


TL: Resonance

    周围的气流忽然产生一丝异动,随即就见左弦的身影出现在不远处。

There was suddenly a slight change to the air around them. Then, Zuo Xian’s figure appeared not far away.

    “‘他’在哪里?”左弦看着尚可问道。他问的自然是帝馗,出发前,霍轩让他留意这只丧尸王,而他则暗处监控。然而帝馗白天安静得仿佛不存在一般,晚上又不见踪影,实在难以捉摸。正因如此,左弦才会将尚可带出来。在这种地方,即使发生冲突,也只会波及丧尸。

“Where is ‘he’?” Zuo Xian looked at Shang Ke and asked. He was naturally asking about Di Kui. Before they departed, Huo Xuan asked him to pay attention to this zombie king while he monitors in secret. However, Di Kui was so quiet during the day as if he didn’t exist. At night, he disappeared and was very elusive. Therefore, Zuo Xian decided to bring Shang Ke out. Even if they clashed in this kind of place, only zombies would be affected.

    “不知道。”尚可回答的同时,用感知四处搜索了一下,并没有什么发现。像霍轩和帝馗这种级别的强者,若有意隐藏,基本没有人能够找到他们。

“I don’t know.” Shang Ke replied. At the same time, he used his perception to search around. He didn’t find anything. If powerful people like Huo Xuan and Di Kui wished to hide, almost no one could find them.

    “你最好保障他不会出手伤人,或者故意引来丧尸围击佣兵团。”左弦冷冷地盯着他,毫不掩饰自己的敌意。

“You better make sure that he won’t hurt people, or deliberately attract zombies to surround the mercenary group.” Zuo Xian stared at him coldly and didn’t hide his hostility.

    尚可嗤笑:“以他的实力,用得着那么麻烦吗?”

Shang Ke scoffed, “Does he have to go through such trouble with his strength?”

    左弦瞥了他一眼,又看了看旁边的霍轩,说道:“走吧,前面聚集了大量丧尸,那里应该就是他们的巢穴,我们兵分两路,你们自己小心。”

Zuo Xian gave him a glance, then looked at Huo Xuan who was beside him and said, “Let’s go. A large number of zombies is gathered in front, that place should be their lair. We will split two ways and go there. You guys be careful.”

    说完便不再理会两人,兀自离去。

After saying so, he no longer cared about the two of them and just left.

    霍轩皱了皱眉,对左弦抛下队友的行为颇为不悦。不过现在也没有时间纠结这些,霍轩走到尚可身边,伸手搭向他的腰,打算像之前那样带他瞬移。

Huo Xuan frowned. He was quite unhappy with Zuo Xian’s act of leaving teammates behind. However, he didn’t have time to worry about it now. Huo Xuan walked to Shang Ke’s side and reached out his hand to Shang Ke’s waist, intending to take him teleporting like before.

    尚可连忙避开:“你不用管我,先走吧。”

Shang Ke quickly avoided and said, “You don’t have to worry about me. Go first.”

    “不要任性,过来。”霍轩不容置疑地将他抱入怀里,转瞬间穿越楼层,潜入了丧尸巢穴的腹地。

“Don’t be willful. Come here.” Huo Xuan pulled him into his embrace without allowing any doubts and passed through the floors in an instant, sneaking into the center of the zombie lair.

    黑暗中,弥漫着难闻的腐臭味,丧尸们三五成群地在街道上、小巷中和房屋间来回走动。

Within the darkness, an unpleasant rotten smell permeated the air. The zombies walked in groups of three to five on the streets, walking back and forth in alleys and houses.

    霍轩带着尚可进入一座破旧的体育馆,趴在钢筋构架的顶梁上,悄悄向下探去。

Huo Xuan brought Shang Ke and entered a worn out stadium. They lied on the top beam made of steel frame and looked down quietly.

    虽然室内光线昏暗,但两人都拥有夜视能力,足以将下面的情况看得一清二楚。然而这一看,却让两人震惊不已。

Although it was dim inside, both of them had night vision ability which was enough for them to see everything below clearly. However, the sight they saw shocked the both of them.

    只见偌大的广场中,聚集了三四百人,有男有女,有老有少,他们肢体纠缠,如野兽一般疯狂交合着,喉咙里发出或痛苦或绝望的呻吟。

There were about three to four hundred people gathered in the large square. There were males and females, young and old people. They were tangled together and crazily copulating like beasts, their throats letting out moans of pain or despair.

    在他们周围,零零散散地围着几十只高级丧尸。他们兴奋地嘶叫着,抓挠着,偶尔有几只实在忍不住,猛地扑过去,一边蹂躏人类的身体一边啃食他们的血肉,然后很快又会被其他丧尸粗暴地拉扯开。

Around them, a few tens of high level zombies are scattered about surrounding them. They hissed and scratched about excitedly. Once in a while, a few of them really couldn’t bear it and would suddenly pounce over. They would ravage the humans’ body while gnawing on their flesh. Then, they would quickly be pulled away roughly by other zombies.

    眼前这幅血腥yin乱的画面,如同地狱一般,让人几欲作呕。一切来得太过突然,两人都没有心理准备。他们原本只是来查探丧尸的势力分布和数量,结果真实情况远比他们预想中的恐怖震撼。

The bloody and chaotic scene before them was like hell and made people nauseous. Everything came too suddenly and the two of them weren’t mentally prepared. They only came here to investigate the zombies’ force distribution and number. However, the true situation was far more horrifying and shocking than they expected.

    霍轩将尚可的脑袋压到自己的胸口,在他耳边低声道:“我送你出去。”

Huo Xuan pressed Shang Ke’s head onto his chest and whispered into Shang Ke’s ear, “I will send you out.”

    尚可摇摇头,指了指他们正下方。

Shang Ke shook his head and pointed directly below them.

    霍轩低头看去,只见在下方黑暗的角落,蜷缩着两名女性丧尸,她们全身赤裸,一动不动地坐在脏兮兮的软垫上,表情麻木,如同死掉了一般。更让人惊异的是,她们的腹部微微隆起,看起来像是怀孕了。

Huo Xuan looked down and saw two female zombies curled up in the dark corner below them. They were completely naked and sat unmoving on the dirty cushion. Their expressions were numb as if they were dead. What’s more shocking is that their abdomens were slightly bulging, looking as if they are pregnant.

    霍轩眼中露出惊骇之色,脑中猛地闪过两个字——繁衍。

Horror appeared in Huo Xuan’s eyes and a word suddenly flashed in his mind—Reproduction.

    丧尸最可怕之处不在于他们的战斗力,而是他们的传染性。但是,随着病毒抗体的研究,人类终有一天能够完全攻克这种病毒,到那时,丧尸必将走向灭亡。

The most scary thing about zombies wasn’t their combat ability, but their infectious nature. However, as the research for virus antibodies progresses, humans would be able to completely overcome this virus one day. By then, the zombies are bound to perish.

    然而,让霍轩没想到的是,丧尸竟然会利用人类进行繁衍。某些丧尸的智力已经进化到这种程度了?看那两名孕妇的模样,至少已经有四五个月的身孕了。丧尸怎么可能怀孕?

However, what Huo Xuan did not expect was that zombies would actually make use of humans for reproduction. Has the intelligence of some zombies already evolved to this level? Judging by the appearance of the two pregnant women, they should at least be pregnant for 4-5 months already. How is it possible for a zombie to become pregnant?

    霍轩又朝广场上看了看,那群正在疯狂交合的人,大部分都是正常人类。也就是说,丧尸们先让人类怀孕,再将他们转化为丧尸。胎儿的生命力,让怀孕的女性变异成另一物种——丧尸母体。

Huo Xuan looked back at the square again. The group of people that are crazily copulating were mostly normal humans. Which means, the zombies let the humans become pregnant first before turning them into zombies. The life force of the fetus mutated the pregnant women into another species—Zombie mother.

    或许不只是人类女性,所有雌性生物都有可能成为丧尸的母体。

It might not be just human females. All female creatures have the possibility of becoming zombie mothers.

    这时,四周的光线似乎越来越暗,以霍轩和尚可的视力,竟然也逐渐无法视物。

At this moment,  the surrounding light seems to be getting darker. Huo Xuan and Shang Ke gradually became unable to see anything even with their vision ability.

    霍轩心中微凛,抱着尚可离开藏身处,向馆外移去。

Huo Xuan’s heart shivered slightly. He carried Shang Ke and left their hiding spot to move outside of the stadium.

    然而,原本应该离开体育馆的两人,下一秒却陷入了彻底的黑暗。仿佛置身虚空,没有一丝光线,只能闻到一股异香,在空气中缓缓弥散。

However, the two people who should have left the stadium plunged into complete darkness the next second. It was as if they were in a void and there wasn’t a single ray of light. They could only smell a strange fragrance slowly spreading in the air.

    “是空间异能。”霍轩说道,“一只拥有空间异能的将级丧尸,实力堪比王级,我们要小心了。”难怪之前侦查的人都没有回来,遇上这种级别的丧尸,确实无能为力。

“It’s a spatial ability.” Huo Xuan said, “A general level zombie with spatial abilities. It’s strength is comparable to the king level, we have to be careful.” No wonder the people who went investigating before did not come back. There was really nothing they could do when they encountered a zombie of this level.

    尚可捂着鼻子,皱眉问:“这是什么香气?闻着很不舒服。”

Shang Ke covered his nose and asked with furrowed brows, “What’s this aroma? I feel uncomfortable smelling it.”

    霍轩并无异状,只是感觉怀里的人,体温似乎越来越高,呼吸也变得越来越急促。

Huo Xuan felt no abnormality. He only felt that the temperature of the person in his embrace seemed to be getting higher and his breathing had also become more and more rushed.

    “怎么了?”霍轩扬手在虚空挥了一下,无数道银色光刃立刻在两人周身盘旋飞绕,然而,锐利的剑光,也只能照耀五米以内的范围。

“What’s wrong?” Huo Xuan raised his hand and waved in the void. Countless silver light blades hovered around the two immediately. However, the sharp sword light could only illuminate up to a five meter range.

    尚可揉了揉有些发晕的额头,霍轩的贴近让他感到更加躁热。他伸手推了推,企图拉开距离,却在触摸到对方的瞬间,体内升起一股强烈的欲望,来势汹汹,几乎将他的理智吞没。

Shang Ke rubbed his dizzy head. Huo Xuan’s closeness made him feel more irritable. Shang Ke stretched out his hand to push him away trying to put a distance. But on the instance he touched the other party, a strong lust rose in his body. It came so strongly and almost swallowed up all his reason. 

    尚可此刻终于明白,体育馆中那些人为什么会疯狂交合。黑暗的空间,诡异的香气,让人迷失心智,沦为野兽。

Shang Ke finally understood now why those people in the stadium would copulate so crazily. The dark space and strange aroma made people lose their mind and reduce them to a beast.

    “尚可……”低沉的声音仿佛来自另一个世界,轻轻在尚可耳边回响。

“Shang Ke…” The low voice seemed as if it came from another world, gently echoing in Shang Ke’s ear.

    尚可大脑昏沉,身体轻飘飘的,感觉像是在做梦。

Shang Ke’s head felt groggy while his body felt light. It felt like he was in a dream.

    “尚可……可可……”

“Shang Ke… Keke…”

    帝馗?还是穆图?

Di Kui? Or is it Mutu?

    管他呢,反正都是他男人!

Who cares, they’re all his man anyway!

    尚可将身边的男人扑倒,一边撕扯他的衣服,一边啃咬他的身体。

Shang Ke pushed down the man beside him and tore his clothes while biting his body.

    男人企图阻止,却被尚可吻了个结实,熟悉的气息萦绕在唇齿间,带来的是更加汹涌的欲望。

The man tried to stop him, but was kissed hard by Shang Ke. The familiar breath lingered between their lips and brought them an even stronger desire.

    尚可感觉身下的男人,从最初的被动,逐渐转为主动,拥抱,亲吻,厮磨,交缠,放弃理智,忘情投入。忽然一阵钝痛,身体被充实,随即是接二连三的冲撞和深顶……

Shang Ke felt the man below him gradually changed from being passive to taking the initiative to hug, kiss, rub, entangle, give up his reason and be invested in it. Shang Ke suddenly felt a dull pain and his body was filled. What came after was successive thrusts hitting the deepest part… 

    “啊!”

“Ah!”

    尚可猛地从昏睡中惊醒,发现自己正躺在床上,几缕阳光窗外透进来,将房间照亮。

Shang Ke abruptly woke up from his sleep and realised that he was currently lying on the bed. A few rays of sunlight shone in through the window and lit up the room.

    “可可。”一颗脑袋凑过来,在他脖子上咬了一口。

“Keke.” A head came near him and bit his neck.

    尚可脑中闪过几幅破碎的画面,心中一惊,伸手捧起靠在他颈窝处的这颗脑袋,见到的是帝馗那张面瘫的脸,暗暗松了口气。

Several fragment images flashed in Shang Ke’s head. Feeling shocked, he lifted up the head which was near his neck. Seeing Di Kui’s expressionless face, Shang Ke secretly let out a sigh of relief.

    “这是哪里?我怎么会在这里?”尚可坐起身,被子从胸口滑落,露出一片光洁的皮肤。身上清清爽爽,没有任何异状。

“Where is this? Why am I here?” Shang Ke sat up and the blanket slipped down from his chest, revealing his bright and clean skin. His body felt refreshed with no abnormality.

    “我回来的时候,就看到你在床上睡觉。”帝馗在他身上嗅了嗅,皱眉道,“总觉得哪里不对。”

“When I came back, I saw you sleeping on the bed.” Di Kui sniffed Shang Ke’s body and said with a frown, “I keep feeling that something is wrong.”

    “哪里不对?”尚可又在身上摸索了一番,什么都没发现。事实上,就算有什么也发现不了,因为他能自愈。

“What’s wrong?” Shang Ke touched about his body but didn’t find anything. Actually, he wouldn’t find anything even if there was something as he would self heal.

    尚可看了看时间,已经是第二天早上九点多。昨晚他和霍轩出去查探丧尸的情况,在体育馆见到了如同地狱般的景象,丧尸企图利用人类繁衍后代。

Shang Ke looked at the time. It was already around 9 a.m. on the second day. He and Huo Xuan went out to investigate the zombies’ situation last night and saw a hell like scene in the stadium. Zombies were attempting to use humans to reproduce the next generation.

    接着他们离开体育馆,然后被困在了一个黑暗的空间……

Then, they left the stadium and were trapped in a dark space… 

    尚可拍了拍脑袋,后面的事情完全记不起来了,好像做了一场梦,醒来之后不留一丝痕迹。

Shang Ke sapped his head. He couldn’t remember the things that happened afterwards at all. He seemed to have had a dream and he didn’t remember a single thing after waking up.

    以霍轩的实力,最后应该顺利脱困了吧?

With Huo Xuan’s strength, he should have successfully escaped right?

    正想着,门外忽然传来敲门声。

Just as he was thinking, the sound of knocking came from outside the door.

    帝馗冷冷地瞥了一眼,随即消失在房间中。最近他的情绪很不稳定,见到人类便忍不住想要杀戮。在学会控制前,他都不打算和人类接触过多。

Di Kui glanced at the door coldly, then disappeared from the room. He had been emotionally unstable recently and would have the urge to kill whenever he saw a human. Before he learned how to control himself, he didn’t plan to have too much contact with humans.

    尚可皱了皱眉,也察觉到帝馗的不对劲。以往他不会如此频繁的消失,即使要走,也会带上他。但最近几天,他的气息总是不稳定,特别是进入怀曲后,变化更加明显。

Shang Ke frowned. He also sensed something wrong with Di Kui. In the past, he never disappeared so frequently. Even if he wanted to go, he would bring Shang Ke along. But recently, his aura had been unstable and the changes got more obvious after entering Huaiqu.

    敲门声还在持续,尚可收敛心神,穿上衣服走到门口,刚准备开门,忽然感觉胸口一阵灼痛。

The sound of knocking was still continuing. Shang Ke came back to his senses, wore his clothes and walked to the door. Just when he was about to open the door, he suddenly felt a burning pain on his chest.

    他低吟一声,抬手翻开衣领,只见右胸上,缓缓盛开出一朵如烈焰般的红色花朵,层层叠叠的花瓣一直蔓延到肩膀和锁骨。

He let out a soft groan. He raised his hand to pull open his collar, only to see a flame-like red flower blooming slowly on his right chest. The layers of petals kept spreading until his shoulder and collar bone.

    苍穹赤炎?这个纹身怎么又出现了?

Flaming Red Sky? Why did this tattoo appear again?

    “尚可?”门外传来霍轩的声音。

“Shang Ke?” Huo Xuan’s voice sounded outside the door.

    尚可抬起头,若有所思地望着房门,然后缓缓后退,退出五米开外后,胸口的灼痛感逐渐减轻,纹身也开始隐去。

Shang Ke looked up and stared at the door thoughtfully. Then, he stepped back slowly. After moving five meters away from the door, the burning pain on his chest gradually decreased and the tattoo also started disappearing.

    果然是因为霍轩?但是之前和他相处,并没有发生这种情况啊。

It really was because of Huo Xuan? But this kind of thing didn’t happen when they interacted before.

    尚可又向房门走了几步,结果胸口又开始发疼。

Shang Ke took a few steps closer to the door again. Then, his chest started hurting again.

    正捂着胸口缓解疼痛时,身边骤然出现一个人影。

Just as he was holding his chest to ease the pain, a figure suddenly appeared beside him.

    “怎么了?”霍轩将他揽入怀中,目光瞥见他衣服下露出的赤炎纹身,呼吸微微一窒,脑中不由得浮现出昨夜发生的一切。他从没想过自己会在那种情况下,和这个人发生关系。虽然只是一场意外,却是他这辈子最美妙的一次体验。每一个细节他都记得清清楚楚。每一次亲吻,每一次进入,都是那么蚀骨销魂。

“What’s wrong?” Huo Xuan pulled him into his embrace. He caught a glimpse of the flaming red tattoo exposed beneath Shang Ke’s clothing and his breathing stop for a moment. The image of what happened last night couldn’t help but appear in his mind. He never expected that he would have sex with this person under that kind of situation. Although it was only an accident, it was the most wonderful experience in his life. He remembers every detail clearly. Every kiss and every time he entered gave him so much ecstasy.

    霍轩将尚可抱到床上,温声道:“好好休息,我让于飞过来给你看看,他以前是军医,医术很不错。”

Huo Xuan carried Shang Ke to the bed and said warmly, “Rest well. I asked Yu Fei to come take a look at you. He used to be a military doctor and had very good medical skills.”

    “不用了,我没事。”尚可靠在床头,略显凌乱的头发随意耷拉在额间,清澈的眼眸中隐约透着几分迷蒙。

“No need, I’m fine.” Shang Ke leaned against the head of the bed. His slightly messy hair drooped randomly on his forehead and his clear eyes were a little misty.

    霍轩目不转睛地凝视着他,眼中充满温情和喜爱。

Huo Xuan stared at him intently and his eyes were full of tenderness and affection.

    沉思中的尚可,并没有察觉霍轩对他不同寻常的亲昵,等胸口的疼痛稍稍缓和,他才问道:“丧尸的情况怎么样了?”

Shang Ke who was deep in thought didn’t notice Huo Xuan’s unusual intimacy towards him. After the pain on his chest eased slightly, he asked, “How’s the situation with the zombies?”

    “今晚就有行动。我负责对付那只将级丧尸,左弦他们负责清理其他丧尸。”顿了顿,霍轩又补充道,“你留在这里,原地待命。”

“We will make a move tonight. I am responsible for dealing with the general level zombie while Zuo Xian and the rest would be responsible for cleaning up the other zombies.” After pausing for a moment, Huo Xuan added, “You will stay here and be on standby.”

    尚可点点头,没有反对。几十对几百,行动肯定要隐蔽。他只要保证自己不受伤不流血,就是对团队最大的贡献了。

Shang Ke nodded his head and didn’t object. With a few tens against a few hundred, they definitely had to move secretly. He just needed to make sure that he wasn’t hurt or bleeding and it would be his greatest contribution to the team.

    他犹豫了一会,终于还是问道:“昨晚……”

He hesitated for a while but still asked ultimately, “Last night…”

    “别担心。”霍轩摸了摸他的头发,“我会负责的。”

“Don’t worry.” Huo Xuan touched his hair and said, “I will take responsibility.”

    尚可惊:你要负什么责?!

Shang Ke was alarmed: What are you taking responsibility for?!
