Chapter 243: Back To That Key Moment ⑧


TL: Resonance

    里奥快速查看了一下身边几人的情况,确定暂时没有生命危险后,当即拉响了警铃。在等待救援的过程中,里奥开始回忆刚才发生的一切。

Leo quickly checked the situation of people around him. After determining that they weren’t under immediate danger, he immediately rang the alarm. While waiting for the rescue team, Leo began to recall everything that had just happened.

    精神情景模拟,要求进入空明状态,构建属于自己的精神领域,尽可能屏蔽来自外界的干扰,所以里奥并没有立刻发现异常。直至大脑传来危险讯号,才察觉不对,整个过程不过几十秒时间,根本来不及做出反应。

Spiritual scene simulation requires entering a state of emptiness and building one’s own spiritual domain. One had to shield outside interference as much as possible, so Leo didn’t immediately notice the abnormality. It was only when his brain sent a danger signal that he noticed something was wrong. The whole process only took a few dozen seconds and there was no time for him to react at all.

    眼前的情景,里奥觉得有些似曾相识。思索片刻,忽然脑中灵光一闪,一段模糊的记忆逐渐浮现。重生前,他所在的小学确实遭遇过恐怖袭击,当时他和其他孩子一起陷入了昏迷,直到几天后才被治愈。那次袭击,造成了三个孩子的死亡,还有十五个孩子永远失去了进化的机会。

Leo felt some déjà vu seeing the scene in front of him. He thought for a moment and a thought suddenly flashed in his mind. A vague memory gradually emerged. Before his rebirth, his elementary school did face a terrorist attack. Back then, he fell into a coma along with the other children and was cured a few days later. That attack resulted in the death of three children and fifteen children lost their chance to evolve.

    那时年纪太小,里奥对这件事的印象,还是来自之后的新闻报道。如今历史再次重演,他事先毫无警觉。唯一不同的是,他这次没有中招。

Leo was too young that time, and his memory of the incident came from the news reports that followed. Now history was repeating itself again, and he was not aware of it beforehand. The only difference was that he was not affected this time.

    同样的时间,同样的地点,同样的训练科目,为什么他这次能够躲过一劫?

The same time, the same place, the same training subjects, why was he able to avoid it this time?

    里奥心念一动,低头看向挂在脖子上的玉佩。若说变数的话,只有这块由他母父亲手雕刻的、原本不该存在的玉佩。

A thought came to Leo’s mind  and he looked down at the jade pendant hanging around his neck. If we talk about variables, it was only this piece of jade pendant carved by his mother. It originally should not exist.

    正想着,走廊尽头传来一阵纷乱的脚步声,救援人员赶到了。

Just as he was thinking about it, there was a flurry of footsteps at the end of the hallway and rescue workers arrived.

    里奥在他们冲进训练室之前,提醒道:“应该是精神毒气攻击,你们最好戴上防毒面具,不要使用精神扫描。”

Leo warned them before they rushed into the training room, “It should be a spiritual poision gas attack, you’d better put on your gas masks and not use the spiritual scans.”

    话音刚落,就见几名救援人员突然栽倒在地,人事不知。他们是负责警戒的哨兵,行动之前都会对周围的环境进行探测,结果精神力被还未消散的毒气所侵蚀,瞬间陷入晕迷。

As soon as the words left his mouth, he saw several rescuers suddenly fall to the ground unconscious. They were the sentinels in charge of the scouting, and they would scan the surroundings before they acted. As a result, their spiritual power was eroded by the still dissipating poison gas, and they instantly fell unconscious.

    负责人脸色铁青,快速调整行动方案,重新部署救援。

The person in charge’s face turned green, quickly readjusted the action plan and redeployed the rescue team.

    尚可赶到时,里奥正坐在救护车旁,接受医生的检查。

When Shang Ke arrived, Leo was sitting by the ambulance and being examined by the doctor.

    “里奥,你没事吧?”尚可蹲在里奥身前,用精神力查探他的情况。

“Leo, are you okay?” Shang Ke squatted in front of Leo and used his spiritual power to check his condition.

    “没事,母父不用担心。”里奥握住母父的手,无声安抚。

“I’m fine, don’t worry mother.” Leo held his mother’s hand, silently reassuring.

    “听说是毒气袭击?”

“I heard it was a poison gas attack?”

    “是的。”

“Yes.”

    尚可眼中寒芒一闪,怒道:“这群混蛋,竟然无耻到对孩子下手!”

A cold glint flashed in Shang Ke’s eyes and he said angrily, “These bastards, they are shameless enough to act against children!”

    反政联盟是由普通人建立的恐怖组织,收揽了众多菁英份子,他们将所有哨兵向导当作敌人,害怕这些进化者将来会把他们全部灭绝,拥有极端而不可理喻的危机意识。数百年来,一直致力于和进化者统治的ZF做对。

The anti-government union was a terrorist organization established by ordinary people, taking in many elites. They treated all sentinels and guides as enemies, fearing that these evolved people would exterminate them all in the future. They possess an extreme and unreasonable sense of crisis. For centuries, they have been committed to working against the government which is ruled by the evolved people.

    随着进化者的力量越来越强大,他们的手段也越来越凶残,不知有多少无辜者成为了他们的牺牲品,这次更是连孩子都不放过。

As evolved people became more and more powerful, their methods became more and more brutal. It was unknown how many innocent people have become their victims, and this time even children are not spared.

    等医生检查完毕,里奥将挂在脖子上的玉佩拿出来,问道:“母父,这块玉佩……”

When the doctor finished his examination, Leo took out the jade pendant hanging around his neck and asked, “Mother, this jade pendant…”

    尚可见到这块玉佩,心中暗暗庆幸。当初为了以防万一,特意在玉佩上刻下了一个防御阵,用来保护佩戴者的精魂,没想到这么快就派上用场了。只是启动阵法的并非灵力,而是他输入的精神力。

When Shang Ke saw the jade pendant, he was secretly glad. Previously, he had engraved a defense formation specially on the jade pendant to protect the wearer’s spirit just in case of any emergency. He never thought it would come in handy so soon. Though, it was not the spiritual power that activated the formation, but the spiritual power he had inputted.

    “嗯,这块玉佩能在一定程度上保护你的精神不受侵蚀。”尚可简单解释道,“不过如果已经被侵蚀的话就不管用了,所以记得一定要随身佩戴。”

“Yes, this jade pendant can protect your spirit from erosion to a certain extent.” Shang Ke explained simply, “But it won’t work if the spirit is already eroded, so remember to always wear it.”

    里奥明白地点点头,把玩着手上的玉佩,心里再次对母父的能力有了新的认识。要知道十几年后,也没有人能够制作出如此小巧的精神防护器物。如果人手一件,岂不是可以完全杜绝毒气侵蚀了?

Leo nodded his head in understanding and played with the jade pendant in his hand. He has once again gained a new understanding of his mother’s abilities. One had to know that no one was able to make such a small spiritual protection device even 10+ years later. If everyone had one, wouldn’t it be possible to completely eliminate poisonous gas erosion?

    里奥并不知道,启动防御阵的精神力只能由向导输入,向导等级越高,持续时间越长,效果越好。精神力一旦耗尽,就必须重新充能。以尚可S级的实力,输入一次也只能保障维持一年左右。

Leo did not know that the spiritual power to activate the defense array could only be input by a guide. The higher the class of the guide, the longer it can last and the better the effect. Once the spiritual power is depleted, it must be recharged. With Shang Ke’s S-class strength, inputting it once can only guarantee to maintain it for about a year at most.

    两人谈话间,昏迷的人一一被救援人员送了出来。里奥作为唯一逃过一劫的受害人,自然也和其他人一起被带上了救护车,同行的还有数十名警卫。

While the two were conversing, the unconscious people were carried out one by one by the rescuers. As the only victim who was unscathed, he was naturally taken into the ambulance along with the others, accompanied by dozens of police.

    “母父,如果有人问起我为什么安然无恙,我应该怎么回答?”里奥小声问道。

“Mother, if someone asks why I am unharmed, how should I answer?” Leo asked in a whisper.

    “实话实说吧。”尚可并不觉得玉佩中的阵法有什么好隐瞒的,回头申请一个专利,以后就可以公开出售了。只是阵法的刻画并非一般人能够掌握的,需要配合精神力的使用,对精准度要求极高。

“Tell the truth.” Shang Ke did not feel that the formation in the jade pendant needed to be hidden. If he applies for a patent, he can start selling it later on. It’s just that the engraving of the formation is not something that ordinary people can master. It needs to be engraved along with spiritual power and requires a very high degree of precision.

    正当他们准备离开时,异变再次发生。最初那几名不幸中招的救援人员突然毫无征兆地从昏迷中醒来,然后开始无差别地攻击身边的人发动,十几秒时间就造成了几十人的伤亡。惊叫声此起彼伏,场面陷入一片混乱。

Just as they were about to leave, something happened again. The initial few rescuers who were unfortunately struck by the poison gas suddenly woke up from their coma and then began to indiscriminately attack those around them. In just dozens of seconds, tens of people were injured. Screams sounded one after another, and the scene fell into chaos.

    不过多时,原本被送上救护车的孩子们相继“醒”来,哭喊着,惊叫着,挣扎着,四下奔逃。

In a few moments, the children who had been sent into the ambulance “woke up” one after another, crying, screaming, struggling, and running in all directions.

    如果仔细观察,会发现他们双眼惊惧,表情扭曲,好像看到什么可怕的东西。其他人或许还不清楚,但拥有未来记忆的里奥却很快意识到,这是游离症的升级版,会让人将噩梦与现实联系起来,陷入崩溃的境地。

If one looks closely, they will find that the eyes of the people who woke up are frightened and their expressions are distorted, as if they have seen something terrible. Others may still not be aware of it, but Leo, who has memories of the future, quickly realizes that this is an upgraded version of psychosis, which causes people to associate their nightmares with reality and fall into a state of mental collapse.

    混乱中,几名向导下意识对发狂的众人进行精神疏导,意图稳定局面,结果无一例外地遭到病毒感染,昏倒在地,让原本就很混乱的局面变得更加一发不可收拾。

In the chaos, several guides subconsciously start spirit guiding the frenzied crowd with the intention of stabilizing the situation. However, they end up being infected by the virus and fainted, making the already chaotic situation even more out of control.

    病毒能够通过精神力进行传播,向导的精神辅助不但起了不任何作用,反而会成为累赘,目前只能依靠武力,强行将发狂的人控制起来。

The virus can be spread through spiritual power. The guide’s spiritual assistance did not help and would even become a burden. Currently, they can only rely on physical force to subdue the frenzied people.

    可惜警力不足,场面又处于失控状态,而且发狂的人不是携带武器的哨兵就是手无寸铁的孩子,稍有不慎就会误伤。不过数十分钟,被感染的人就从四、五十增加到七、八十。

Unfortunately, the police force is insufficient. The place was out of control, and the frenzied people are either sentinel carrying weapons or unarmed children, the slightest carelessness will lead to accidental injuries. In just tens of minutes, the number of infected people increased from 40-50 to 70-80.

    “请求支援,请求支援!”警卫长焦急地对总部发出求救信号。

“Requesting for support, requesting for support!” The chief police anxiously sent a distress signal to the headquarters.

    “母父……”里奥靠在尚可怀中,面露忧色。

“Mother…” Leo leaned into Shang Ke’s embrace with a worried look on his face.

    接下来的话还来不及说,与他们同处一辆救护车的孩子突然从担架上跳起来,直冲车壁撞去,眼看就要撞得头破血流,万幸被眼疾手快的尚可给拦了下来。

He had yet to say his next words when the child in the same ambulance as them suddenly jumped up from the stretcher and rushed to hit the walls of the car. Just when he was about to hit his head and bleed, he was fortunately stopped by the fast Shang Ke.

    孩子在他手上挣扎不停,大声哭喊,连带的,其他昏迷的孩子似乎也有暴走的迹象。

The child kept struggling in his hands and crying loudly, and with it, the other unconscious children seemed to have signs of a rampage.

    里奥正想问母父应该怎么办,却见他突然从怀中取出一个瓶子,用拇指挑开瓶盖,空气中立刻传来一股刺鼻的气味,将这个半封闭的空间团团包裹。

Leo was about to ask his mother what to do, but saw him suddenly take out a bottle from his arms. Opening the cap with his thumb, a pungent smell immediately filled the air, wrapping around the semi-enclosed space.

    这种气味实在太难闻了,就像屎里混了醋,即便是正常人恐怕无法忍受,更别说五感敏锐的哨兵了。里奥捂住口鼻,寒毛直竖,一脸便秘的痛苦表情。

This smell is just too unpleasant, like shit mixed with vinegar. Even normal people can’t stand, not to mention the sentinels with sensitive five senses. Leo covered his mouth and nose and all his hair stood, his face with a painful expression as if he has constipation.

    接下来,让他惊愕的一幕发生了。原本暴动的孩子,在这种气味的刺激下,居然逐渐平静下来,重新昏睡过去。

Then, something shocking happened. The children who were originally rampaging, under the stimulation of this smell, actually gradually calmed down and went back to sleep.

    里奥瞪大眼睛,不敢相信眼前的麻烦就这么简单地被解决了。

Leo stared in disbelief as the trouble in front of him was so simply solved.

    尚可察觉到他的诧异,解释道:“我这是利用嗅觉刺激以毒攻毒,暂时遏制原本的毒气效果,最多只能维持几个小时。”

Sensing his astonishment, Shang Ke explained, “I’m using olfactory stimulation to counter poison with poison, temporarily curbing the effects of the original poison gas. It can only last a few hours at most.”

    虽然说得轻描淡写,但也不是什么刺激气味都能达到这种效果的。里奥很想问母父究竟是怎么调制出这种奇葩气味的,居然连困扰了塔国几十年的病毒都抵挡不住,实在太逆天了好吗!

Although it was mentioned casually, not all kinds of stimulating smell can achieve this effect. Leo was tempted to ask his mother how exactly he modulated this strange smell. Even the virus that has plagued the country for decades can not resist, it’s just too unbelievable!

    不过里奥也知道,气味传播有一个前提,那就是必须选择相对封闭的空间,如果是在宽敞的户外,气味还没来得及发挥作用就会消散,反政联盟的毒气攻击也受限于此,否则塔国早就大乱了。

But Leo also knows that there is a prerequisite for the spread of the smell, that is, it must be in a relatively enclosed space. If it is in the spacious outdoors, the smell will dissipate before it has time to work. The anti-government union’s gas attack is also limited by this, otherwise the country would have been in chaos already.

    “轰!”车身突然一阵晃动,发出巨大的震响。

“Boom!” The car suddenly shook with a loud shock.

    尚可皱了皱眉,对里奥说道:“你待在车里,我出去看看。”

Shang Ke frowned and said to Leo, “You stay in the car, I’ll go out and take a look.”

    从救护车上跳下来,入目所及,到处是四散奔逃的人影,硝烟尘土中,时不时有激光闪烁。外面拉起了警戒带,将所有人围在中间,避免恐慌扩散。

Shang Ke jumped out of the ambulance. As far as he could see, there were people running everywhere. In the midst of the dust and smoke, there were laser flashes from time to time. The police put up a  cordon outside, surrounding everyone in the middle to prevent panic from spreading.

    但七、八十名发狂的感染者并不是一个小数目,在向导无法提供协助的情况下,单凭武力强行控制难免造成伤亡。

But 70-80 frenzied infected was not a small number. With the guides being unable to provide assistance, controlling by force alone would inevitably result in casualties.

    更不幸的是,受到侵蚀的人中,有一名C级黑暗哨兵,他对众人发动了精神攻击,一下子将附近数十名哨兵全都感染了。虽然初期被感染的人只会陷入昏迷而不会狂化,但在毫无防备的情况下,随时都有性命之忧。

More unfortunately, among those whose spiritual powers were eroded, there was a C-rank Dark Sentinel who launched a spiritual attack on the crowd, infecting all of the dozens of Sentinels nearby at once. Although those who just got infected would only fall into a coma and not go into a frenzy, their lives were at risk as they were defenseless.

    “队长,我们只剩下十几名战力了。”

“Captain, we only have dozens of combatants left.”

    “坚持住,支援很快就要到了!”

“Hang in there, support will be here soon!”

    “很快是多快?我们恐怕连两分钟都坚持不了了!”

“How soon is soon? I’m afraid we won’t be able to hold out for even two minutes!”

    “MD,坚持不了也要坚持,你身上那套防护甲难道是摆着好看的吗?那是肉盾必备,足够你顶住好几轮火力了。”

“Fuck. You have to hold on even if you can’t. Is the protective armor you are wearing just for show? That is essential for protecting your body and is enough for you to withstand several rounds of firing.”

    “……”

“…”

    随着那名C级哨兵的精神攻击,其他被感染的哨兵如同受到刺激一般,相继启动了自己的精神力。

Following that C-rank sentinel’s spiritual attack, the other infected sentinel also started using their spiritual powers one after another as if they had been stimulated.

    面对毫无章法的精神攻击,警卫队员却不敢开启精神防御,因为一旦开启就会被感染。

Faced with the unorganized spiritual attacks, the police however did not dare to activate their spiritual defense because they would be infected if they did.

    正在隐忍之际,众人突然感觉自己的精神力像是受到牵引一般,自动运转,不受控制地向外界流失,很快与其他人的精神力融合在一起,形成一片防御区域。

Just when they were in a pinch, they suddenly felt that their own spiritual power was being drawn and operating automatically. Their spiritual powers flowed uncontrollably to the outside world, soon merging with the others’ spiritual power to form a defense zone.

    他们心下惊骇,只能眼睁睁看着被感染的哨兵向他们发动攻击,都以为这下死定了,结果等了半天,似乎完全没有被感染的迹象,这才发现在他们的防御区域之外,还有一层精神屏障,淡蓝色的光晕,如同海洋一般,将所有人笼罩其中,也正是这层精神屏蔽,为他们挡住了病毒侵蚀。

They were horrified and could only watch as the infected sentinels attacked them. They all thought they were dead, but after waiting for a long time, there seemed to be no sign of infection at all. Only then did they realize that outside their defense area, there was a layer of spiritual barrier. The light blue halo was like an ocean as it enveloped everyone within, and it was this layer of spiritual shielding that blocked the virus from eroding them.

    循着精神波动,众人很快找到了精神屏障的源头,正是传说中的S级黑暗向导——尚可。

Following the spiritual fluctuations, the crowd quickly found the source of the spiritual barrier. It was the legendary S-rank Dark guide—Shang Ke.

    “别发呆了!我能挡住病毒侵蚀,可挡不住武器攻击!”尚可清冷的声音在空中响起,即便在一片噪杂声中,也听得格外真切。随着声音的流转,哨兵们原本浮躁的情绪逐渐平复下来。

“Stop dreaming! I can block the virus erosion, but not the weapon attack!” Shang Ke’s clear, cold voice rang out in the air and was heard extraordinarily clearly even in the midst of the noise. As the voice flowed, the sentinels’ originally restless emotions gradually calmed down.

    救护车中的里奥看得两眼放光,对母父的崇拜如同火山一般喷发。能够防御病毒侵蚀的玉佩,能够遏制病毒的刺激气味,最后还拥有能够抵挡病毒侵蚀的精神屏蔽!

Leo who was in the ambulance looked with bright eyes, and his admiration for his mother erupted like a volcano. A jade pendant capable of defending against virus erosion, a pungent smell capable of suppressing the virus, and finally possessing a spiritual barrier capable of resisting virus erosion!

    母父,从今往后,您就是我的偶像!

Mother, from now on, you are my idol!

    【精神力突破瓶颈,由S级晋升到SS级,打破属性壁垒,可适配所有哨兵。】

【Spiritual power breaks through the bottleneck, promoting from S rank to SS rank. After breaking through your attribute’s barrier, you are compatible to all sentinels.】

    【恭喜宿主,从此将成为全民偶像,世界巨星,开启后宫之路。】

【Congratulations to Host. From now on, you become a national idol, a world superstar, and opened the road to a harem.】

    【请放开怀抱尽情填充后宫,一个小小的亚奥尼斯已经满足不了亲爱的宿主了φ(≧ω≦*)?】

【Please let loose and enjoy the harem as much as you like. A meagre Yonis can no longer satisfy dear host φ(≧ω≦*)?】
