Chapter 218: Death Cycle (XVI)


    影月佣兵团的第一次行动并不顺利,第二天只有半数人活着回来。即使有霍轩和左弦这样的高手,也没能击杀那只拥有空间异能的将级丧尸,主要原因似乎是中途有人暴露了行踪,引发丧尸暴动,导致行动失败。

The first operation of the Shadowmoon Mercenary Group did not go well, and only half of them returned alive the next day. Even with experts like Huo Xuan and Zuo Xian, they were unable to kill the general-level zombie with spatial abilities, mainly because someone revealed their whereabouts in the middle of the operation, which triggered a zombie riot and led to the failure of the operation.

    众人伤痕累累地回来,尚可与另外两名留守成员帮他们准备好食物和水,同时为伤员进行治疗。

Everyone returned wounded. Shang Ke and two other members who had stayed behind during the operation helped prepare food and water and treat the wounded.

    “MD!那群砸碎,我真恨不得直接扔颗炸弹把他们一窝端了。”一名佣兵怒吼锤击桌子。

“Fuck! That group of trash! I really wish I could throw in a bomb and destroy their nest.” A mercenary raved as he smashed a fist down on the table.

    “偏偏是一只空间类丧尸,在他的领域中,炸弹根本不管用。”

“It just had to be a spatial zombie of all things. In his domain, a bomb is useless.”

    “左弦。”百木问道,“连你也找不到那只丧尸吗?”

“Zuo Xian.” Bai Mu turned to him, “Even you can’t find that zombie?”

    左弦阴沉着脸,摇头不语,心中却在疑惑为什么一直不见霍轩的踪影,他应该就在附近才对。

With a gloomy face, Zuo Xian shook his head. At the same time, he was confused. Why did he not see Huo Xuan the whole time? He should be nearby.

    百木凝重道:“目前的情势有些不乐观,我们必须找出那只将级丧尸,否则就算将其他丧尸全部清理干净也没用。”

Bai Mu solemnly continued, “Our present situation isn’t hopeful. We have to find that general-level zombie, otherwise, even if we do kill all the other zombies it would be useless.”

    空间类丧尸的战力并不强,但问题是没有人能够将他从无数空间夹缝中揪出来。更麻烦的是,如果他选择弃城逃跑,那么此次任务就算彻底失败了。

A spatial zombie didn’t have strong offense skills, but the problem was that no one was able to pull him out of the numerous cracks in space. What was even more troublesome was that if he chose to abandon the city and run away, the mission would be a complete failure.

    尚可提着药箱走到霍轩身边,眼中带着询问:堂堂第一强者,居然连一只将级丧尸也搞不定?

Shang Ke walked to Huo Xuan’s side with the medicine box in his hand, a question in his eyes: The strongest man on earth actually couldn’t even handle a general-level zombie?

    霍轩回了他一个稍安勿躁的眼神,然后将手臂伸到他面前。

Huo Xuan returned his look with calmness, then held his arm out in front of him.

    尚可看了看,虽然血迹斑斑,但实际上连一块皮都没破。尚可斜了他一眼,取出针筒,准备给他打一针破伤风,结果针头根本扎不尽他的皮肤,直接被顶弯了。

Shang Ke looked at it. Although it was bloodstained, there wasn’t even a scratch. Shang Ke gave him a sidelong glance, took out a syringe, and prepared to give him a tetanus shot, but the needle couldn’t pierce through his skin and was bent right over.

    尚可:皮厚成这样真的没问题吗?

Shang Ke: Is it really okay to have such thick skin?

    霍轩似乎意识到什么,抖动了一下手臂上的肌肉,然后凑过来低声道:“再试试。”

Huo Xuan seemed to realize something, shook the muscles in his arm. Then leaned in and whispered, “Try again.”

    尚可无语:居然连剑体防御都撤了,你就这么喜欢打针吗?!

Shang Ke was speechless: You even withdrew your sword body defense, do you like injections that much?!

    霍轩当然不喜欢打针,只要某人开心就好。

 Huo Xuan certainly didn’t like needles, but as long as a certain someone was happy about it he would do it.

    尚可决定还是不要在他身上浪费药水了,拿起药箱,朝另一名伤员走去。

Shang Ke decided it was better not to waste medicine on him, picked up the medical box, and walked towards another wounded man.

    佣兵团战斗了一晚,体力消耗巨大,商议过后,便各自休息去了。

The mercenaries had fought all night, and were physically exhausted. So after a discussion, they went to rest.

    霍轩用原本的身份,秘密给左弦发了一个消息,让他通知佣兵团暂时隐蔽,等他找到那只将级丧尸再行动。

Huo Xuan secretly sent a message to Zuo Xian using his original identity, asking him to inform the mercenaries to take cover for a while until he found the general-level zombie.

    “我要离开一段时间,你注意安全。”霍轩特意给尚可留下一句话,便匆匆离开了,没有惊动其他人。

“I’m going to be away for a while, so make sure to be careful” Huo Xuan purposely left a message for Shang Ke, and hurriedly left without alerting the others.

    尚可并不担心他的安危,只是觉得他对自己的态度有点微妙。那天晚上的事,他终究没有问,以他的记忆力,说不定能想起些什么。

Shang Ke wasn’t worried about his safety, he just felt that his attitude towards himself was a bit odd. He didn’t ask about the events of that night, but with his memory, he might remember something.

    晚上换岗后,尚可回到自己房间,一头扑倒在床上。

After the night shift, Shang Ke went back to his room and flopped down on his bed.

    半睡半醒间,感觉身体一重,唇齿缠绕,呼吸交融。两只大手在皮肤上滑动,冰冷的触感,让他忍不住打了个冷颤。

Half asleep and half awake, he felt a weight on his body followed by his lips and breath being taken away. Two large hands slid on his skin, and the cold touch made him shiver.

    尚可企图睁开眼睛看个究竟,身体却无法动弹,被男人肆意摆弄,直至进入体内……交合的钝痛和肉壁的摩ca,让尚可脑中出现了几个零散的记忆片段。

Shang Ke attempted to open his eyes to see what was going on, but his body was unable to move. The man moved his body as he pleased until he finally went into him… the dull pain of the intrusion and following moving movements caused some scattered fragments of memory to appear in Shang Ke’s mind.

    不,这并非他的记忆,而是……霍轩?

No, it’s not his memory, but… Huo Xuan’s?

    他想起来了,那天晚上从体育馆出来,两人陷入黑暗空间,尚可原本以为自己被那股香气所迷惑,导致失去记忆。但事实上,真正受到迷惑的是霍轩。

He remembered. That night when the two of them had fallen into a dark space after coming out of the gymnasium, Shang Ke originally thought that he had been bewitched by the aroma, causing him to lose his memory. But in fact, it was Huo Xuan who was bewitched.

    尚可本身没有什么异能,但他可以免疫异能。按理来说,他不应该被异能所困。如今想来,困住他的不是丧尸的空间异能,而是霍轩的精魄之力。他将自己的幻象,强行融入他的记忆。结果遭到淬魂的反弹,导致他记忆缺失。

Shang Ke himself has no supernatural powers, but he is immune to them. As a rule, he should not be trapped by supernormal abilities. Now that he thought about it, what trapped him was not the zombie’s spatial abilities, but the power of Huo Xuan’s spirit piece. Huo Xuan took his illusions and forcibly integrated them into his memories. As a result, it was rebounded by his soul quench spirit piece, causing him to lose his memory.

    尚可之所以如此肯定,是因为此刻正在他身上胡作非为的家伙。

The reason why Shang Ke was so sure was because of the guy who was going wild on him at the moment.

    身上的束缚逐渐消失,尚可睁开眼,看到一只毫无节操的丧尸王。身体被他压到极致,欲望一次次被顶至深处。

As the restraints on his body faded away, Shang Ke opened his eyes to see a shameless zombie king. His body was pushed to the limit, and his desire was pushed to the depths again and again.

    真实与虚假,在这一刻无比分明。

Reality and falsity were clearly distinguished at this moment.

    尚可抱住帝馗,主动回应,放下所有顾忌,极尽热情地与他缠绵,汗水与血液交织,释放着原始的欲望……

Shang Kui embraced Di Kui, took the initiative to respond and dropped all worries he had. He passionately entwined with him. Their sweat and blood mingled as they released their primal desire… 

    热潮过后,尚可舒适地躺在帝馗怀中,手指在他胸口来回比划。

After the hot event, Shang Kui lay comfortably in Di Kui’s arms, his fingers roaming back and forth on his chest.

    帝馗的暗界精魄,能够给他带来力量;霍轩的明境精魄,能够伤及他的淬魂。

Di Kui’s dark world piece can give Shang Ke power. Huo Xuan’s bright boundary piece can hurt his soul quench piece.

    杀死帝馗其实并不难,只要用自己的淬魂击破他体内的暗界,他便会失去复活能力。几个月前,尚可或许没有机会,但如今,帝馗对他毫不设防。

It was not difficult to kill Di Kui, as long as he used his own soul quence to break the dark world piece in his body, he would lose his ability to resurrect. A few months ago, Shang Kui might not have had a chance, but now, Di Kui was defenseless against him.

    只可惜,他下不了手。

Unfortunately, he couldn’t do it.

    至于霍轩,尚可有些纠结。他似乎以为他们在黑暗空间中发生了关系,所以才会对他说出负责的话。但无可否认,霍轩身上带着和帝馗相同的气息,而且手上还有一颗标志性的痣。他强行融合给他的记忆,甚至夹杂着前世的一些信息。

As for Huo Xuan, Shang Ke was a bit torn. He seemed to think that they had sex in the dark space, and that’s why he said he will take responsibility. But there was no denying that Huo Xuan carried the same presence as Di Kui and had an iconic mole on his hand. The memories he forcibly fused with him even had some information from their past lives.

    换言之,霍轩很可能也是他的恋人,或者说,是他恋人的一部分。

In other words, Huo Xuan was probably also his lover, or rather, a part of his lover.

    尚可记得辰霄和守默在进入轮回之前,为了改变命运,各自分出了一魂一魄,融入轮回灯中。如果尚可猜得没错,霍轩身上应该拥有辰霄的一缕残魂。也只有这样,才能解释他为什么会对两人同时产生感应。

Shang Ke remembered that before entering reincarnation, in order to change their destinies, Chen Xiao and Shou Mo had each separated their souls and merged into the reincarnation lamp. If Shang Ke’s guess was correct, Huo Xuan should be a piece that had broken off of Chen Xiao’s soul in his body. This was the only way to explain why he could have a response to both of them at the same time.

    如此想来,难道每一世的掌心痣,都是辰霄的残魂所化?所以之前没有见到掌心痣时,他好几次都不敢认。

In this case, was it possible that the mole on the palm of his hand in each lifetime was a piece of Chen Xiao’s soul? That was why when he didn’t see a mole on their palm, he didn’t dare to affirm their identities.

    但是,一缕残魂怎么会有独立的人格?就算它真的转世,与主体一分为二,智力也应该残缺不全才对。

But how could a wisp of a soul have an independent personality? Even if it is really reincarnated, being split from the main body should cause great damage to his intelligence.

    难道……尚可怀疑地打量身边的帝馗,这家伙才是那抹残魂?他其实是在和一颗痣做爱?

Could it be… he suspiciously looked at Di Kui beside him, this guy was the piece of the soul? Is he actually having sex with a mole?

    “饿了?”帝馗见尚可目不转睛地盯着他,下意识问道。

“Hungry?” When Di Kui saw that Shang Ke was staring at him, he asked subconsciously.

    每次做完,尚可都会喂他喝奶,所以他觉得也应该喂他吃点什么。

Every time they finished, Shang Ke would feed him milk. So he thought he should feed Shang Ke something too.

    “不,不饿。”尚可随手从床边的箱子中拿出一个奶瓶,习惯性地递给帝馗。

“No, I’m not hungry.” Shang Ke casually took out a milk bottle from the box beside the bed and habitually handed it to Di Kui.

    帝馗捧着奶瓶,一边喝奶一边望着他。

Di Kui held the bottle and looked at him as he drank the milk.

    尚可:这没断奶的模样,果然是他男人……的痣?所以他为什么放弃本体,选择和一颗痣相爱相杀?

Shang Ke: This unweaned look, as expected, he’s his man’s… mole? So why did he give up the main soul and choose to fall in love with a mole?

    不过,尚可随即否认了这个猜测,虽然残缺不全,但他现在很肯定这家伙就是他男人,霍轩才是那颗“痣”!

However, Shang Ke then denied this suspicion. Although his mind was a bit out there, he was now sure that this guy was his man and that Huo Xuan was the ‘mole’!

    尚可嫌弃地瞥了这只丧尸王一眼:身为本体,居然被一颗“痣”占据真身,抢夺神智,你丢不丢人!

Shang Ke glanced at the zombie king in disgust: As the main soul, a mole actually occupied the real body and took over! Aren’t you embarrassed?!

    正在喝奶的帝馗:“?”

Di Kui who was drinking milk: “?”

    既然已经确定身份,那么接下来就是研究如何完成任务。但他总觉得这次任务有些不同寻常,却又想不通其中的关键。

Now that he has confirmed his identity, the next step was to think about how to complete the mission. He felt that there was something unusual about this mission, but he couldn’t figure out the key to it.

    其实他心里已经制定了一个“被杀”计划,只是一直拖着。他不想杀帝馗,也不想被霍轩所杀。对于死亡,他可以坦然以对,但没有记忆的他,却要重复经历生离死别。灵魂一分为二,所承受的痛苦也被一分为二。

In fact, he already had a plan to “be killed” in mind, but he just kept putting it off. He didn’t want to kill Di Kui, nor did he want to be killed by Huo Xuan. He can calmly face death, but his lover who has no memory of their previous lives has to experience the separation of life and death repeatedly. His soul was split in two, and the pain that he would suffer would also be split in two.

    也许,一直这样生活下去似乎也不错。他和帝馗都是不死之身,可以活到天长地久。然而愿望是美好的,现实是残酷的。这个世界还有一个霍轩,他和帝馗绝对不会与别人分享自己的爱人,即使这个人是自己的分身。不仅是他们,尚可自己也接受不了。他只想要一个完完整整的恋人,而不是两个残缺不全、互相为敌的分身。

Perhaps, it seems good to live like this forever. He and Di Kui are both immortal, and can live for a long time. However, while dreams are nice, reality was cruel. There was still a Huo Xuan in this world. He and Di Kui will never share their beloved with others, even if this person was a piece of themselves. Not only them, but Shang Ke himself couldn’t accept it. He only wanted a complete lover, not two broken and mutually hostile dopplegangers.

    尚可将脑袋埋在枕头里,打算做一回缩头乌龟,能拖多久算多久。

Shang Ke buried his head in his pillow, intending to be a shrinking turtle to procrastinate for as long as he could.

    “我说你啊,”尚可伸手戳了戳帝馗的额头,“不要总让我烦恼,好歹也想想怎么把你的‘痣’给弄回来啊!少了痣的你,简直没法看!”

“I say,” Shang Ke stretched out his hand to poke Di Kui’s forehead, “don’t always make me worry, at least think about how to get your ‘mole’ back! You simply look terrible without it!”

    已经喝完奶正在咬奶嘴的帝馗:“?”

Di Kui, who has finished his milk and was biting the nipple of it: “?”

    暂时拨开云雾的尚可,心情放松,回头一定要找机会和霍轩说清楚,不能让他继续误会下去。虽然有些对不起他——说实话,他还挺喜欢这颗“痣”的,魅力值比本体高多了——但是感情不能一分为二,有时候要懂得取舍。

Shang Ke who had just cleared up the thoughts plaguing him, felt much more relaxed. He had to find an opportunity to talk with Huo Xuan later, he can’t let this misunderstanding continue. Although he was a bit sorry—he honestly did quite like this ‘mole. It’s charm value was far higher than the main body—but feelings cannot be divided into two parts, people need to know how to choose at times.

    霍轩一走就是三天,了无音讯。

Huo Xuan left for three days without a word.

    等到第四天,霍轩还没回来,但佣兵团藏身的小楼却先一步被丧尸发现了。这栋小楼是一座带有围墙的独栋别墅,围墙虽然不高,但四周生长着一种名为“囚藤”的植物,能够隔绝人气,避开丧尸的探测。

On the fourth day, Huo Xuan still had not yet returned, but the small building where the mercenaries were hiding was discovered by the zombies first. The building was a single-family villa with a wall. Although the wall wasn’t high, a plant called “prison vine” grows around it, which can hide the scent of humans and avoid detection by zombies.

    原本众人隐蔽得很好,然而第四天的午后,一名失联数日的佣兵突然逃了回来,同时也引来了上百只面目狰狞的丧尸。

Everyone had been well hidden, but on the afternoon of the fourth day, a mercenary who had been missing for several days suddenly made his way back, attracting hundreds of malevolent zombies.

    因为这个变故,众人不得不提前与丧尸正面交战。

Because of this unforeseen event, everyone had no choice but to fight the zombies head-on early.

    “那家伙要跑怎么不跑远点?”有人低声抱怨。

“Why didn’t that guy run farther if he was going to run?” Someone complained quietly.

    “行了,反正都是要打的,我早就等得不耐烦了。”一名佣兵猛地抬起手,一刀将窗外一只丧尸的脑袋给刺穿了。

“Come on, we were going to fight anyway. I was long tired of waiting.” A mercenary raised his hand sharply and stabbed a walker’s head through the window with his knife.

    战斗,正式开始。

 The battle officially began.

    尚可留在大厅帮那名死里逃生的佣兵进行治疗,顺便给他注射抗体。

Shang Ke stayed in the hall to help the mercenary who had survived the deadly attack with treatment, injecting him with antibodies along the way.

    他浑身伤痕,血肉模糊,几乎没有一处完好,像是遭受了什么酷刑。尚可很难想像他居然还能活着逃回来,而且是在五天后。

His body was injured and ragged, almost nothing was intact, as if he had been tortured. It was hard for Shang Ke to imagine that he had made it back alive, and after five days.

    正在这时,尚可神色微变,敏锐地发现眼前的佣兵,没有脉搏。尽管他表现得和常人无异,但尚可确定他是一只丧尸,而且是一只善于伪装的高级丧尸。

At that moment, Shang Ke’s expression changed slightly, and he became acutely aware that the mercenary in front of him had no pulse. Despite the fact that he acted like a normal person, Shang Ke was sure that he was a zombie, and an advanced zombie that was good at camouflage.

    尚可不动声色,平静道:“我手上的伤药不够,你稍等一下,我再去拿几瓶过来。”

Without moving a muscle, Shang Ke said calmly, “I don’t have enough medicine on hand, wait a moment, I’ll go get some more.”

    刚准备起身,手腕就被这名佣兵紧紧抓住,尖锐的指甲刺入他的皮肤,鲜血顺着手指流淌下来。原本表情僵硬的佣兵,在闻到血腥味的瞬间,立刻露出兴奋的神采,张口就朝尚可的手臂咬去。

As soon as he was about to get up, his wrist was tightly grabbed by the mercenary. His sharp nails pierced his skin, and blood flowed down his fingers. The mercenary, who had a rigid expression, immediately showed an excited look when he smelled the blood, and opened his mouth to bite into Shang Ke’s arm.

    但是还没咬到,他的脑袋便飞了出去,重重撞在墙壁上,发出咔嚓一声闷响,如同西瓜一般四分五裂。

But before he could bite, his head flew out and hit the wall with a muffled crack, splitting apart like a watermelon.

    “怎么回事?”这边的动静引起了其他人的注意,见到那名佣兵的惨状,众人都用惊疑不定地目光看向出手之人,那名与尚可一起加入佣兵团的神秘高手——王馗(帝馗的化名)。

 “What happened?” The commotion here attracted the attention of others, and when they saw the mercenary’s miserable condition, they all looked at the person who did it with suspicion. The mysterious expert who joined the mercenary group together with Shang Ke – Wang Kui (alias of Di Kui).
