Chapter 234: Re: Covenantor


    尚泽死了,就死在实验即将成功、有机会从一名被剥夺了感情的守约人恢复为正常人的时候,还是死在他兄长之手。

Shang Ze died at the moment when the experiment was about to be successful and there was a chance for him to be restored from an emotionally deprived covenantor to a normal human being. It was even at the hands of his elder brother.

    陆修樊抱着浑身染血的尚泽,整个人如坠冰窟,大脑几乎失去思考能力,只能眼睁睁地看着那双明亮的眼眸,逐渐失去光彩,带着留恋和歉疚,默然地告别了这个世界。

Lu Xiufan held Shang Ze, who was covered in. He could only watch those bright eyes gradually lose their brilliance, and silently say goodbye to the world with remorse and reluctance.

    “小泽!”他痛苦地呼喊,完全无法接受眼前的事实。

“Little Ze!” He buried his head and cried out in agony, completely unable to accept what was happening.

    正在这时,忽然感觉指尖似乎有液体滴落。陆修樊抬头望去,只见尚泽闭合的右眼眼角处,不知何时流下了一行眼泪。

At this moment, he suddenly felt liquid dripping from his fingertips. Lu Xiufan looked up and saw a line of tears flowing from the corner of Shang Ze’s closed right eye at some point.

    所有人都以为守约人是没有感情的,但他的小泽,哭了。在死亡的这一刻,哭了。他用他的眼泪,打破了禁锢守约人的诅咒。

Everyone thought that the covenantors was emotionless, but his Little Ze cried. At the moment of death, he cried. With his tears, he broke the curse that imprisoned the covenantors.

    陆修樊的身体难以抑制地颤抖。

Lu Xiufan’s body trembled uncontrollably.

    他的小泽是有感情的!他比任何人都热爱生活,所以才会因为不舍而落泪!才会因为伤心而落泪。

His Little Ze had feelings! He loved life more than anyone else. He cried because didn’t want to go! He cried out of grief.

    “小泽!”陆修樊紧紧抱住他,难受得无法自已。

“Little Ze!” Lu Xiufan held him tightly in his arms, suffering from such emotional agony that he couldn’t form any other words.

    实验室一片狼藉,发狂的陆修齐被护卫强行送进了病房,同时迅速将情况上报给女王。

The laboratory was a mess, and the frenzied Lu Xiuqi was forcibly sent to the hospital room by the bodyguards, who quickly reported the situation to the Queen.

    后续事务的处理,陆修樊一如既往的雷厉风行,表面上看起来并无异状,但身边的亲信都能感觉到他的变化。

In the aftermath of the incident, Lu Xiufan was as stern as ever. On the surface, he appeared to be fine, but his close aides could sense his change.

    从他疯狂调查此次事件的真相即可看出,他对幕后元凶恨之入骨。陆修齐体内检验出狂化药剂,也就是尚泽的继母当年偷偷给尚泽注射的特殊精神药物,能够引发类似精神病毒感染的狂化症状。

From his frantic investigation into the truth of this incident, they could tell just how much he hated the culprit behind it. A drug that drove people insane was found within Lu Xiuqi’s body. It was the special psychotropic drug that was once injected into Shang Ze by his stepmother, capable of triggering mania symptoms similar to the Mental Virus.

    陆修齐是女王的丈夫,如果他在检察陆修樊的实验成果中出事,必然会遭到女王的猜疑。对方明显是想利用陆修齐,激发他和女王之间的矛盾,却没料到他们的治疗药剂已经研制成功,完全没有理由为了躲避检察而谋害陆修齐。

Lu Xiuqi was the Queen’s husband, and if something happened to him during the inspection of Lu Xiufan’s experiments, he would certainly be suspected by the Queen. The other party obviously wanted to use Lu Xiuqi to cause conflict between him and the Queen, but they didn’t expect that their treatment drug had been successfully developed, so there was no reason at all for Lu Xiufan to murder Lu Xiuqi to avoid the inspection.

    而这份研究成果,是尚泽用生命换来的。

The research results were exchanged by Shang Ze with his life.

    陆修樊全力投入事件调查,将之前所有嫌疑目标全部清查了一遍,其手段之狠,效率之高,让人闻风丧胆。一只沉睡的猛兽被他们唤醒,开始了它凶残的屠戮,贵族官僚们迎来了有史以来最可怕的寒冬。首都索亚弥漫着一片肃杀之气,连平民也察觉到风雨欲来的前兆。

Lu Xiufan threw himself into the investigation of the incident and rechecked the previous cleared suspects and targets. He did it with such high efficiency and ruthlessness anyone that heard about it trembled. A sleeping beast was awakened by them to begin its ferocious slaughter, and the aristocratic bureaucrats were ushered into the most frightening winter in history. The capital Soya was filled with an aura of austerity, and even the commoners sensed the signs of an impending storm.

    两年后,陆修樊扫荡了三个盘根错节的利益团伙,从黑道组织到银行官员,从地下买卖到国务总督,从外交商贸到财政大臣,从下至上,逐一查处。其中最让人震惊的,便是科学国务大臣格森,在科学领域极具权威、一度被视为联盟骄傲的他,竟然是一个无耻的外国间谍,数十年间,不知出卖了多少国家情报。

Two years later, Lu Xiufan had swept up three deeply rooted and problematic bribery groups, from the mobs to bank officials, from underground trading to state governors, from diplomatic trade to finance ministers. From bottom to top, they were all dealt with. The most shocking of them all was the State Chancellor of Science Ferguson, who held great power and was once regarded as the pride of the field of science, was actually a shameless foreign spy who had betrayed countless national intelligence over the decades.

    为了调查这些人,陆修樊也付出了惨痛的代价,右眼失明,身上多处枪伤,几度徘徊于生死边缘,每天都活在危险和恐吓中。

In order to investigate these people, Lu Xiufan also paid a terrible price. He was blind in his right eye, his body with multiple gunshot wounds while he hovered on the verge of death countless times. He lived everyday in danger and threats.

    换做一般人,早就偃旗息鼓或者低调行事了。但陆修樊毫无所惧,下手果决。当一位手握重权、精明强干的人豁出性命狙击对手时,基本没有人能够逃出罗网。更何况他还有女王陛下和亲王陆修齐的支持,只要证据确凿,计划完善,即可各个击破,以雷霆之势,将权利中心重新洗牌。

If an ordinary person were to do what he had done, they would have gave up or kept a low profile. But Lu Xiufan was fearless and decisive in his actions. When a powerful, smart and capable man risked his life to snipe an opponent, pretty much no one could escape. Moreover, he has the support of Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Lu Xiuqi, so as long as the evidence was solid and the plan is sound, he can break down each and every one of them and reshuffle the powers of the Empire like lightning.

    两年时间并不足以清理所有相关人员,但陆修樊的强力狙击,已经让他们元气大伤,再追究下去恐怕就要触及女王的底线了。

Two years was not enough time to clean up all the people involved, but Lu Xiufan’s powerful sniping has already hurt them badly. If he continue to pursue the matter, the Queen’s bottom line would be reached.

    陆修樊虽然不在意,但不能不为兄长和家族考虑。他交出大部分权利,只保留爵位,作为女王参议,隐居二线。

Although Lu Xiufan didn’t care, he couldn’t help but think about his brother and family. He surrendered most of his power and retained only his title as Queen’s Adviser, living in seclusion.

    余下的时间,他将主要精力转移到精神治疗药剂的研制和开发上。这是尚泽用生命换来的成果,也是他的遗愿,延长守约人的寿命,让他们获得应有的尊重和地位,重新回归社会。

For the rest of his time, he shifted his focus to the research and development of psychotherapeutic drugs. This was the fruit of Shang Ze’s sacrifice and his last wish, to extend the lifespan of the covenantors, to give them the respect and status they deserve, and to allow them to return to society.

    陆修樊与其他研究人员商量后,决定将这种药剂定名为“尚式1号”。“尚”是越泽成为守约人之后的姓氏,陆修樊一直称呼他为“尚泽”,因为越家已经没有资格将自己的姓氏冠在他的名上。

After discussing with other researchers, Lu Xiufan decided to name the drug “Shang Type 1”. Shang had become Yue Ze’s family name after turning into a convenantor, and Lu Xiufan had always called him Shang Ze. The Yue Family were no longer qualified to have him use their surname as his surname.

    “咳咳!”陆修樊随手擦去嘴角的血迹,眼中一片漠然。

“Cough cough!” Lu Xiufan wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth with indifference in his eyes.

    连续几年的劳累和伤病,让他的身体变得极差,但他毫不上心,不仅不按照医嘱进行调理,还经常使用强效药剂压制病情,透支生命力。

His body had become extremely poor after several years of fatigue and injuries. But he did not care, not only did he not follow the doctor’s instructions, he also often used strong medicine to suppress his condition and overdraft his vitality.

    一阵悦耳的音乐铃声响起,提醒陆修樊该休息了。

A pleasant musical bell rang, reminding Lu Xiufan that it was time to rest.

    熟悉的铃声依旧,人却已不在。

The familiar bell still rings, but the person was no longer there.

    尚泽做事总是很有规划,每一分每一秒都设置了丰富的内容。用他相伴的每一天,都是快乐的。

Shang Ze always had a plan for everything. Every minute and every second was filled with rich content. Having his company everyday meant everyday was a happy one.

    陆修樊离开书房,缓步走进卧室。偌大的空间,一如既往的冷寂。

Lu Xiufan left the study and slowly walked into the bedroom. The large space was as cold and silent as ever.

    他从抽屉中取出尚泽的个人电脑,点开屏幕,靠在床头浏览里面的文件。

He took out Shang Ze’s personal computer from the drawer, clicked on the screen, and leaned on the head of the bed to browse the files inside.

    这些文件,他已经看过千百遍,有些是尚泽搜集的学习资料,有些是他下载的影视游戏,还有些是他自己设计的图纸和食谱。每看一次,都有新的感触。尚泽的爱好,尚泽的勤学,尚泽的多才多艺……一一呈现在他的面前,他只恨自己没有更早地去了解他、关心他。如今只能从他留下的文字图影中,去怀念他的一切。

He had seen these files thousands and hundreds of time. Some of them were study materials collected by Shang Ze, some were video games he had downloaded, and some were drawings and recipes he had designed himself. Every time he looked at them, he felt something new. Shang Ze’s hobby, his diligence, and his versatility were all presented to him at… He hated that he didn’t get to know him and care about him sooner. Now, he can only reminisce about him from the words and pictures he left behind.

    一遍遍地点击着,阅览着,突然,一个隐形图标在下方一闪而逝。陆修樊心中一动,往回移动了几下,那个图标又闪了出来,速度非常快,颜色也是透明的,平常人恐怕很难注意。

He looked through every file one by one, reading each word. Suddenly, an invisible icon flashed across the bottom of the page. The icon flashed back again, very fast and transparent in color. An ordinary person would hardly notice it.

    尝试几次后,陆修樊才看清那是一个带着翅膀的锁型图标。

It was only after several attempts that Lu Xiufan could see that it was a lock icon with wings.

    “这是……隐藏文件?”尚泽的电脑中竟然还有隐藏文件?

“Is this… a hidden file?” There was actually a hidden file on Shang Ze’s computer?

    “锁”的出现,意味着需要钥匙才能打开。

The appearance of the “lock” meant that a key was needed to open it.

    尚泽的加密技术很高明,以陆修樊的本事,也花费了不少时间才将它打开。

Shang Ze’s encryption technology was very clever. Even with Lu Xiufan’s skills, it took a lot of time to open it.

    一声开锁的脆响过后,出现在屏幕上的,是一个精致的宝箱,宝箱锁孔位置,有一个指纹验证框。

After an unlocking sound, an exquisite treasure chest appeared on the screen, with a fingerprint verification box at the location of the lock hole.

    陆修樊本以为需要尚泽的指纹才能打开,谁知自己随手一点,宝箱竟然打开了。

Lu Xiufan thought that he needed Shang Ze’s fingerprint to open it. But it had unexpectedly opened when he swiped over it.

    随着一阵舒缓的音乐响起,一张张图片相继出现在屏幕上,一共789张。

With the sound of soothing music, pictures appeared on the screen one after another, a total of 789 pictures.

    第一张是别墅全景的照片,接着是管家费林浇花的照片,第三张就是一身正装的陆修樊。照片中的陆修樊,站在紫色花海中,身姿笔挺,目光深邃,淡金色的阳光为气质冷峻的他,增添了一抹难以察觉的柔和。

The first photo was a panoramic view of the villa, followed by a photo of Butler Fei Lin watering the flowers, and the third photo was Lu Xiufan in formal attire. In the photo, Lu Xiufan was standing in a sea of purple flowers, his posture is straight, his eyes are deep, and the pale golden sunlight adds a touch of imperceptible softness to his cold and steadfast temperament.

    继续翻看,第四张是一只握笔的手,笔下的白纸上画着一个未完成的蛋糕。日期显示为7月19日,正是尚泽的生日。

The fourth picture was a hand holding a pen, with an unfinished cake drawn on the white paper beneath it. The date was July 19, which was Shang Ze’s birthday.

    陆修樊只觉得心头一紧,忍不住捂住嘴。

Lu Xiufan only felt his heart tighten and couldn’t help but cover his mouth.

    他理所当然地对尚泽予取予求,却让他孤独地用这种方式为自己庆生,生日礼物仅仅是一个手绘的蛋糕。

He rightfully took Shang Ze for granted, yet he let him celebrate his birthday in such a lonely way. His birthday present was only a hand-drawn cake.

    “小泽……”陆修樊垂下头,紧握双拳,极力压抑自己的情绪。

“Little Ze…” Lu Xiufan lowered his head, clenched his fists, and tried to suppress his emotions.

    片刻后,他稍稍收敛情绪,继续向下翻看。

After a few moments, he had somewhat restrained his emotions and continued to look through the images.

    接下来照片五花八门,有茶杯、花瓶、装饰画、水晶灯、浴池、厨房、拖鞋、袖扣、零食等等,还有外出时见到的高楼大厦、交通工具、花园布景、新奇玩偶、赛车场景之类,衣食住行无一不有,尚泽似乎是在用自己的方式观察和记录这个世界的一切。

The next photos were all kinds of scenes, including tea cups, vases, decorative paintings, crystal lamps, baths, kitchens, slippers, cufflinks, snacks, and so on. It also included tall buildings, transportations, garden settings, novelty dolls, car racing scenes, and so on, nothing was missing. Shangze seemed to be observing and recording everything in the world in his own way.

    之后的照片,大部分都是陆修樊,沉思的他、应酬的他、看书的他、浅笑的他、品茶的他、生气的他、冷峻的他、沉睡的他……

Most of the photos after that were of Lu Xiufan, the pensive him, the social him, the him reading a book, the him with a light smile, the him sipping tea, the him angry, the him calm, and one of him sleeping… 

    原来他在尚泽眼中,是这样的吗?

So that’s what he looks like to Shang Ze?

    一个有血有肉、生动鲜活的男人。

A man of flesh and blood, vivid and alive.

    789张照片,陆修樊足足看了6个小时。直到最后一张时,才终于看到了尚泽的身影。

Lu Xiufan looked at the 789 photos for six hours. It wasn’t until the last one that he finally saw the figure of Shang Ze.

    他表情平静地坐在花园的亭子中,背脊挺直,目光柔和,几片花瓣在身边飞舞,看起来就像一位优雅的王子。

He was sitting calmly in a garden pavilion, his back straight, his eyes soft, a few petals flying around him. He looked like an elegant prince.

    这张照片明显是别人拍的,而且是在尚泽自愿的情况下。

This photo was obviously taken by someone else, and it was taken voluntarily by Shang Ze.

    后来,陆修樊问自己的管家,是否帮尚泽拍过照。

Later, Lu Xiufan asked his butler if he had taken photos for Shang Ze.

    费林语气唏嘘道:“是啊,那次泽少让我给你们拍一张合照,特意在花园中等您,结果您临时有事没有回来,我只好先给他一个人拍了。想着以后还有机会,谁知道……”

Fei Lin said in a sobbing tone: “Yes, that time, Young Master Ze asked me to take a pair photo with you and waited for you in the garden on purpose. But then you had something come up and couldn’t make it back, so I had taken a photo for him first. I thought there would have been another chance in the future, but who knew…”

    后面的话不用说,陆修樊也很清楚。拍下那张照片的第三天,尚泽便永远地离开了。

Needless to say, Lu Xiufan was also very clear about the rest of the story. On the third day after that photo was taken, Shang Ze left forever.

    陆修樊再也无法忍住自己眼泪,捂着嘴泣不成声。

Lu Xiufan couldn’t hold back his tears any longer, and covered his mouth to prevent his sobs from leaking out.

    尚泽爱他。

Shang Ze loved him.

    用守约人特有的方式,深深爱着他!

In the unique way of a covenantor, he loved him deeply!

    几天后,陆修樊给自己拍了一张照片,与尚泽的照片摆在一起。

A few days later, Lu Xiufan took a picture of himself and posed it with Shang Ze’s picture.

    “小泽,你用自己的眼睛留下一个世界,我也会用我的眼睛,为你留下另一个世界。”

“Little Ze, you left a world with your own eyes, and I will leave another world for you with my eyes.”

    陆修樊开始热衷于拍照,将自己的所见所闻全都拍摄下来,然后存入属于他和尚泽的宝箱。

Lu Xiufan began to take photos enthusiastically, photographing everything he saw and heard, and then depositing them in the treasure chest that belonged to him and Shang Ze.

    789张照片,最后变成了256915张。

The 789 photographs in that treasure box turned into 256,915 photographs.

    直至陆修樊病故,享年48岁。

Lu Xiufan did it until his death to an illness, he was forty-eight that year.

SnowTime: I have to say, I really have a soft spot for sentimental ones, extra tears for this one.
