Chapter 251: Back To That Key Moment ⑨


TL: Resonance

    伊维猛地睁开眼, 眼中还带着不曾褪去的热度。视线中,一个半透明的人影静静伫立在斑驳的树影下, 身姿优雅,体态轻盈, 长长的头发在清风拂动间,若隐若现, 如丝雾般缭绕飘逸。

Ivan snapped open his eyes, his eyes still containing the heat that has not faded. Within his line of sight, a translucent figure stood quietly under the shadow of a tree. His posture was elegant and light, and his long hair swayed gently in the breeze, sometimes appearing and sometimes hidden, winding about elegantly like silk.

    人影回过头,发丝随风流淌, 露出一张俊美的容颜。

The figure turned his head back and his hair flowed with the wind, revealing a handsome face.

    伊维站起身,来到尚可面前,轻轻捧起他的脸,掌心没有温热的触感,只有淡淡的清凉。

Ivan stood up, walked to Shang Ke and gently cupped his face. His palm did not feel warm but only a faint coolness.

    “可可……”伊维深邃的眼瞳中, 闪动出晶莹的光芒,蕴含着浓浓的情愫。

“Keke…” Ivan’s deep pupils were shining brightly and contained his deep affection.

    尚可对他露出一个灿烂的微笑,伸手在他额间轻轻一弹, 洒落无数绚丽的星点。

Shang Ke gave him a bright smile. He stretched out his hand and flicked Ivan’s forehead, sprinkling countless gorgeous stars.

    伊维也笑了, 眼神温柔,心中空缺的那一块,仿佛在此刻被补全,这种失而复得的感觉似乎已经不是第一次出现了,既感到无比满足,又带着一丝淡淡的酸涩……

Ivan also smiled and his eyes were gentle. The empty portion of his heart seemed to be completely filled up at this moment. This feeling of recovering something he has lost does not seem to be the first time appearing. He felt immensely satisfied but also a little sour… 

    “可可,伊维!”泡泡中气十足的声音从远处传来,打破了清晨的宁静。

“Keke, Ivan!” Bubbles’ energetic voice came from the distance, breaking the tranquility of the early morning.

    尚可转头望去,发现小精灵们都起床了,有的从屋子里探出头,有的顺着藤蔓吊下来,有的坐在树梢上欢快地朝这边招手。

Shang Ke turned his head to look and found that the little elves were up, some poking their heads out of the house, some hanging down the vines, some sitting in the treetops waving happily this way.

    尚可笑着迎上去,从今天开始,他正式荣升为孩子王,带领这群小可爱走上称霸世界的伟大征途。

Shang Ke smiled and greeted. From today onwards, he was officially promoted to the king of the children, leading this group of cuties on the great journey of world domination.

    伊维亦步亦趋地跟在他身后,注视着眼前美好的一切,心中升起一股巨大的力量。

Ivan also followed him. He stared at the beautiful sight in front of him and a great strength rose in his heart.

    誓为他们而战,誓为他们而死。

He vows to fight for them and die for them.

    最近一段时间,大陆的局势又发生了新的动荡,器鬼族开始转移战略目标,向各族本土国家展开攻击,大肆破坏,以图分散联盟军的势力。

Recently, new turmoil has happened again in the continent. The specters began to shift their strategic objectives, attacking the home countries of various races, wreaking havoc in an attempt to disperse the forces of the Alliance.

    他们的目的很快收到成效,联盟军的战士们听说自己的家园遭到侵袭,再也无心留守,纷纷要求回去支援。事实上,以器鬼族以及他们控制的傀儡势力,总人数不到联盟军的四分之一,但器鬼族的凶残实在让人闻风丧胆,即使他们只能分出几千人兵力对几个防守薄弱的小城进行破坏性扫荡,也足以弄得人心惶惶。

Their aim soon paid off, and when the warriors of the Alliance army heard that their homeland had been invaded, they no longer had the heart to stay and one after another, they asked to go back so that they could support their own country. In fact, when counting the number of forces the specters and the puppet countries under their control had, the total number was less than a quarter of the alliance army. However, the ferocity of the specters is really frightening. Even if they can only send a few thousand troops to a few small cities with weak defenses to carry out a destructive raid, it was enough to make people panic.

    拥有前世记忆的伊维很清楚这只是一个开始,接下来器鬼族会持续骚扰各族联盟的本土国家,烧杀抢掠无恶不作。短短一年时间,联盟势力就分崩离析,成为一团散沙。接着,器鬼族将出动精锐部队,对翡瑟森林展开猛烈攻势,企图摧毁精灵圣地。伊维当时将小精灵留在了蔚霄森林,自己则孤身赶来参战,结果没料到小精灵也尾随而来,最后还用自我牺牲的惨烈方式,帮助联盟军逼退了器鬼族。

Ivan who has memories of his previous life was very clear that this is just the beginning. From then on, the specters will continue harassing the home countries of the Alliance. Burning, killing and looting, they would do all sorts of evil. In just a year’s time, the alliance forces will fall apart and become scattered sand. Then, the specters will send out the elite troops and launch a fierce attack on Fayser Forest, trying to destroy the elves’ holy land. Ivan left the little elves in Wasier Forest at that time, and came alone to participate in the war. However, he did not expect that the little elves also followed. In the end, they used the tragic way of self-sacrificing to help the alliance forces push back the specters.

    如今重来一次,伊维自然不会任由局势恶化。

Now that he was given another chance, Ivan naturally won’t let the situation worsen.

    器鬼族敢用声东击西的分化战术,他也可以以其人之道还治其人之身。

The ghosts dare to use the divide and conquer tactic, he can also return the favor by doing the same to them.

    伊维靠在树枝上,看着尚可坐在湖边帮艾利卡绑头发。艾利卡的头发干硬如树枝,乱糟糟一团,用泉水滋润之后,也只是稍稍软化。尚可花了几十分钟,才将头发理顺,绑成两条大辫子。等头发干了,辫子就会变成鞭子,完全可以当作武器使用……

Ivan leaned on a tree branch and watched Shang Ke sit by the lake to help tie Erika’s hair. Erika’s hair is dry and hard like a twig and was in a mess. After moistening with spring water, it only slightly softened. Shang Ke spent several minutes before managing to straighten the hair and tying it into two large braids. When the hair dries, the braids will turn into whips, which can be used perfectly as weapons… 

    其他小精灵也被尚可细心打扮了一番,精致的贵族服饰换成了轻便的套装。小精灵们大多偏爱绿色,所以他们的服装基本都是绿色的,成群结队聚在一块,看起来就像一片片摇曳生姿的荷叶。

The other little elves were also carefully dressed by Shang Ke, and the exquisite noble clothings were replaced with lightweight suits. Most of the elves prefer green, so their clothing is basically green. When gathered as a group, they look like a group of swaying lotus leaves.

    接着,尚可又让他们选择各自喜欢的随身配件,刀、剑、锏、锤、叉、铲、弓弩、飞镖、法杖、长矛、镜子、手环以及各种乐器等等五花八门的物品。因为器鬼族拥有操控金属的能力,所以这些器物使用的材料都是非金属物质。

Then, Shang Ke let them choose their favorite accessories such as: Knife, sword, maces, hammers, trident, shovels, crossbows, darts, staffs, spears, mirrors, bracelets, and various musical instruments, and so on. Because the specters have the ability to manipulate metal, the materials used for these items are all non-metallic substances.

    当尚可将这些东西拿出来时,小精灵们都喜疯了,挑挑捡捡,花了两三个小时,才艰难地做出选择。

When Shang Ke brought out these items, the little elves went crazy with joy. They picked and chose, and it took them two to three hours before they made their choice with much difficulty.

    从他们的选择可以看出,他们大多不喜欢近战武器,反而对乐器、配饰等物品比较感兴趣。

As it can be seen from their choice, most of them do not like melee weapons, but are more interested in musical instruments, accessories and other items.

    当然,尚可炼制这些器物,也不是为了让他们参加战斗,而是当作一种媒介,用以疏导小精灵体内的自然之力,帮助他们更好地开发自身的力量,长期携带还能滋养他们的身体。

Of course, Shang Ke refined these items not for letting them participate in battle, but as a medium to channel the power of nature in the elves so as to help them better develop their own power. Long-term carrying can also nourish their bodies.

    尚可给他们安排的课程很“简单”,那就是利用魔法,创造属于他们自己的“小基地”和作战方式,包括防御点、伏击点、瞭望台、地下通道、种植区、陷阱区、魔法标记、信息传递、地形设计等等。每一项工程,都必须经过内部讨论研究,先进行小范围模拟,再正式实施。

The lessons Shang Ke arranged for them is very “simple”, that is to use magic to create their own “small base” and way of fighting, including defense points, ambush points, watchtowers, underground passages, planting areas, trap areas, magic markers, information transmission, terrain design and so on. Each project must be discussed and researched internally, and a small-scale simulation must be conducted before it is formally implemented.

    纯血精灵与其他种族不同,他们拥有一定的知识传承,对文字和天赋技能的掌握非常迅速,缺乏的主要是经验的积累、法力的运用以及创造力的开发。

Unlike other races, pure-blooded elves have a certain amount of knowledge inheritance. They are very quick to master words and their talents. What they lack is mainly the accumulation of experience, the use of mana, and the development of creativity.

    准备充足后,尚可发布了第一个任务:摸清第一层魔法阵覆盖范围内的地形、植被分布和动物种类,然后将其制作成地图。这个任务可以组队,也可以单独行动。周围的环境,尚可了如指掌,所以并不担心小精灵会遇到危险。即使发生意外,他也可以瞬间赶到。

After sufficient preparation, Shang Ke issued the first task: Map out the terrain, vegetation distribution and animal species within the range of the first magic circle, and then make a map of it. They can team up for this task or do it alone. Shang Ke knows the surrounding environment like the palm of his hand, so there is no worry that the elf will encounter danger. Even if an accident occurs, he can arrive in an instant.

    小精灵们全副武装,斗志昂扬,招呼一声便兴冲冲地钻进林子去了,只有双腿不便的希尔留在了大本营。尚可打算给她制作一辆魔法轮椅,并教她如何在物体上刻画和使用漂浮阵。

The elves were fully armed and in high spirits. After greeting, they rushed into the woods, only Shear who had difficulty with her legs stayed at the base camp. Shang Ke intended to make a magic wheelchair for her and teach her how to carve on objects and use floating magic circles.

    尚可目前的凝体达到了62%,在可见的基础上,又增加了可闻,与小精灵的交流已经没有障碍。

Shang Ke’s body condensation has currently reached 62%. Other than being able to be seen, he could also be heard now and there were no more obstacles to communicating with the elves.

    “可可。”伊维的声音从身后传来,尚可回头看去,见他也是全副武装,一副准备远行的模样,忍不住问道:“你要外出?”

“Keke.” Ivan’s voice sounded from behind. Shang Ke looked back and saw that he was also fully armed and looked like he was preparing for a long trip, so he couldn’t help but ask, “You’re going out?”

    “嗯,大概一个月左右。”

“Yes, for about a month or so.”

    “器鬼族?”

“The specters?”

    “是的。”

“Yes.”

    尚可从神木空间取出一个小巧的竹筒,递到伊维面前:“里面装的是生命之泉的精华,可以提供大量自然灵气。”

Shang Ke took out a small bamboo tube from a space in Teldrassil and handed it to Ivan: “It contains the essence of the Spring of Life, which can provide a large amount of natural aura.”

    伊维将竹筒收入囊中,然后定定地望着尚可:“等我回来。”

Ivan put the bamboo tube into his bag, then looked at Shang Ke fixedly, “Wait for me to come back.”

    “嗯。”没有阻止,没有挽留,尚可只是默默送他离开翡瑟森林。

“Mnn.” Shang Ke didn’t stop or urge him to stay. He just silently sent him out of Fayser Forest.

    他相信伊维的能力,也相信他的决定。而且就在刚才,系统提供了一个信息:伊维拥有这一世的记忆。

He believed in Ivan’s ability and his decision. And just now, the system provided a piece of information: Ivan had the memories of his previous life.

    “系统,有件事我好奇很久了,每次回溯都算是一次重生,为什么他有时候保留了重生前的记忆,有时候却没有?”

“System, there’s something I’ve been curious about for a long time. Every time I return, it is considered a rebirth. Why does he sometimes retain his memories before rebirth and sometimes not?”

    那是因为他将记忆还给了他。

That’s because he returned the memories to him.

    器灵不会告诉尚可,这些记忆原本是属于他的。他放弃融入主魂,选择作为器灵守护他们,唯一能够获得的最珍贵的东西就是主魂每一世的记忆。

The lamp would not tell Shang Ke that these memories originally belonged to him. He gave up integrating with the main soul and chose to guard them as the reincarnation lamp. The one most precious thing he could obtain was the memories of the main soul of each life.

    主魂对可可的感情,已经深刻灵魂,但他无法保留,无法品味,每次轮回都必须从新开始。他不知道自己曾经活过,爱过,幸福过,痛苦过。因为这些记忆,最终都会变成器灵的珍藏。

The main soul’s feeling for Keke is already carved deeply into his soul, but he could not keep them nor savor them, and had to start over with each reincarnation. He doesn’t know that he has lived, loved, been happy and suffered before. Because all these memories will eventually become the treasures of the reincarnation lamp.

    主魂死亡的那一刻,就是器灵最幸福的时候。记忆的接收会让他亲临其境,感受主魂曾感受过、经历他曾经历过的一切,包括,尚可对他的爱。

The moment the main soul dies is when the reincarnation lamp is the happiest. When he receives the memories, it will allow him to feel like he had been there, feeling what the main soul had felt and experienced, including Shang Ke’s love for him.

    幸福的记忆,器灵是不会还给主魂的,但是如果能够帮助可可度过难关,并且更好地保护他,器灵倒是不介意分他一点。好歹让他做个明白鬼,不要再犯同样的错误。

The reincarnation lamp will never return those happy memories to the main soul, but if it can help Keke through the difficult times and better protect him, the reincarnation lamp does not mind giving him a little. At least it would let him know and not make the same mistakes again.

    男人,就该对自己狠一点!

A man should be cruel to himself!

    【答案很简单,记忆的存缺,取决于某人是否智(痣?)障。】

【The answer is simple. The survival of memory depends on whether someone is mentally retarded (mole?)[1] or not.】

    尚可:“……”他觉得自己就不该问这个问题。

Shang Ke: “…” He felt that he should not have asked this question.

    十天后,外界传来一个振奋人心的消息,器鬼族几名高级将领在自己的营地遭到暗算,先后被封印,陷入昏迷。这件事在器鬼族内部引起了不小的震动,他们对外的破坏行动也暂时停止,转而收拢力量,加强戒备,以防再次受到偷袭。

Ten days later, there was exciting news from the outside. Several senior general specters had been assassinated in their own camp and had been sealed and put into comas. This incident caused quite a shock within the Specters Clan. Their external sabotage operations were temporarily halted to gather back their forces and strengthen their vigilance to prevent another sneak attack.

    尚可不用猜也知道肯定是伊维所为。整个安格洛大陆,目前只有他的氧灵术能够在短时间内对器鬼族造成这样的伤害。他所制造的氧灵珠以及其他蕴含灵气的器物,都不具备直接封印器鬼族的效果。氧灵珠的加强版——氧灵刻印倒是可以做到这一点,不过炼制繁琐,材料稀少,对使用者本身的属性也有限制,而且完全封印的几率只有35%,其他时候一般只能最大限度地延缓器鬼的行动。

Shang Ke did not have to guess to know that it must be the work of Ivan. In the entire Anglo continent, only his Oxygen Spirit Technique is currently able to inflict such damage to the specters in a short period of time. The oxygen spirit beads and other artifacts containing aura that he made did not have the effect of directly sealing the specters. However, the enhanced version of oxygen spirit beads—oxygen spirit engraving can do this. However, the refining is tedious, the materials are rare, and there are restrictions on the user’s own attributes. The chance of complete sealing is only 35%, and at other times it can generally only delay the movements of the specters to the maximum.

    而伊维的氧灵术,完全依靠他本身的实力,觉醒了龙族血统的他,加上生命之泉的灵气供给,足以将氧灵术发挥到极致。

Ivan’s oxygen spirit technique, on the other hand, relies entirely on his own strength. Ivan who has awakened his dragon bloodline, together with the aura supplied by the Spring of Life, is sufficient to bring the oxygen spirit technique to its fullest extent.

    伊维的目的就是骚扰和狙击,每隔一两个月就去器鬼族的营地转一圈,封印一个算一个,尽可能拖延他们进军的步伐,给联盟和可可争取足够的准备时间。

Ivan’s purpose is to harass and snipe. Every one or two months, he would go around the specters’ camp. Every sealing counts to delay their march as much as possible and give the alliance and Keke enough time to prepare.

    虽然任务艰巨,但伊维宁愿长途跋涉,来回奔波,也要在约定的时间内赶回来见尚可一面。

Although the task is daunting, Ivan would still travel long distances and go back and forth, so that he could come back to see Shang Ke at the agreed time.

    战争所带来的疲惫、杀戮和血腥,在踏入这片宁静而美丽的土地的瞬间,被洗涤一空,迎接他的是一张张熟悉的笑脸以及能够驱散一切负面buff的自然气息。

The exhaustion brought by the battles, killing and bloodshed were washed away the moment he stepped into this peaceful and beautiful land. What greeted him were the familiar smiling faces and the natural aura that could dispel all negative buffs.

    【凝体达到97%,预计十天后可实体化。】

【Body condensation has reached 97%, your body is expected to materialize in ten days.】

    尚可还不及高兴,又听系统补充:【在此期间,不准做梦,不准掉节操,不准消耗体力,不准浪费“精”力。】

Shang Ke didn’t even have the time to feel happy yet when he heard the system added: 【During this period, no dreaming and shamelessness is allowed. Exhaustion of physical energy, and waste of “mental”[2] energy is not allowed.】

    尚可:“……其他先不说,做不做梦似乎不是我能控制的。”

Shang Ke: “… Let’s not talk about the other points first. Whether I dream or not doesn’t seem to be in my control.”

    【宿主别想骗系统,系统连宿主身上有几根毛都知道。】

【Don’t try to lie to the system Host. System even knows how many hairs there are on Host’s body.】

    可以给他保留一点隐私吗?

Can it please give him a little bit of privacy?

    尚可黑线:“我尽量控制……”

Shang Ke had black lines on his face: “I will try my best to control…”

    【宿主不用担心,如果宿主控制不了,系统会助宿主一臂之力。系统的存在,就是为宿主排忧解“男”的<(^-^)>。】

【Host doesn’t need to worry. If the Host can’t control, the system will help the Host. The existence of the system is to help the host resolve your difficulties[3] <(^-^)>.】

    尚可一点都不想被排忧解“男”……

Shang Ke didn’t want the system to resolve the “man” at all… 

Footnotes:

[1] Mentally retarded is pronounced Zhi Zhang, of which Zhi sounds like the Zhi for mole.

[2] 精力 itself refers to our mental energy level but “精”力 would be referring to “essence” energy.

[3] 排忧解“男” – The actual phrase is 排忧解难, meaning to resolve difficulties, but the author made a pun and used  排忧解“男”, where “男” meaning man sounds like 难. The system is helping the host resolve the “man”.
