Chapter 260: This Life—The Beginning (I)


TL: Resonance

    【回溯完成, 任务结束,宿主将在五分钟之后回归现实世界。】

【All second chances are completed. The mission is over and the host will return to the real world in five minutes.】

    尚可刚刚与闻景戎走完幸福的一生, 还没来得及感伤和怀念,便听到系统的提示消息。

Shang Ke had just finished a happy life with Wen Jingrong, but before he had time to feel sentimental and nostalgic, he heard the system’s prompt message.

    “等等, 回归现实世界?”尚可忙道,“不是还有隽隽和撒牙的世界吗?”

“Wait, return to the real world?” Shang Ke hurriedly said, “Isn’t there still the world of Juan Juan and Saya?”0

    【任务失败的世界永远消失, 没有回溯的机会;神祇的世界,触及法则, 无法重启第二次。】

【The world which you have failed the mission would disappear forever and there is no chance to go back; For the world of the gods, because of the law of that world, you cannot return a second time.】

    “消失?”尚可心头一紧,“消失是什么意思?”

“Disappear?” Shang Ke’s heart tightened, “What does disappearing mean?”

    【任务成功,世界存档;任务失败,世界删除。换言之,那个世界已经脱离系统的控制, 除非宿主将来有机会降生到那个世界,让系统再次融合那个世界的时间法则。】

【If the mission succeeded, the world is archived; if the mission fails, the world is deleted. In other words, that world is no longer under the control of the system, unless the host has the opportunity to be born into that world in the future so that the system can integrate with the time laws of that world again.】

    尚可思索片刻,开口道:“你的意思是, 封隽所在的世界并不是真的消失, 而是独立出去了?”

Shang Ke pondered for a moment and said, “What you mean is that, the world that Feng Juan was in didn’t really disappear, but became independent?”

    【可以这么理解。】

【It can be understood that way.】

    “只要我能够找到那个世界,我就有机会回溯?”

“As long as I can find that world, I have a chance to go back?”

    【理论上没错。】

【That’s theoretically correct.】

    尚可稍稍定神,虽然希望渺茫,但并非绝无可能。只要时空印记还在,他们总有相见之日。

Shang Ke calmed down a little. Although the hope was slim, it was not impossible. As long as the imprint of time and space is still there, they will eventually meet one day.

    只是任务已经结束……

It’s just that the mission is already over… 

    “我……还能见到他吗?”

“Will I… still be able to see him?”

    【只要系统存在一天。】

【As long as the system still exist.】

    尚可眼神微动,似乎想说什么,但最终还是没有说出口。

Shang Ke’s eyes moved slightly as if he wanted to say something, but he did not say anything ultimately.

    【亲爱的宿主,传送即将开始,准备好回归现世了吗?】

【Dear Host, the transfer is about to begin. Are you ready to return to the present world?】

    尚可深呼了一口气:“开始吧。”

Shang Ke took a deep breath: “Let’s start.”

    …… 

    Z国A市中心医院。

China’s A city hospital.

    一名晕迷了九个多月的患者突然奇迹般的苏醒,经过一系列检查,确定生理机能一切正常,复健之后即可出院。

A patient who had been in a coma for more than nine months miraculously woke up. After a series of tests, it was determined that all physiological functions were normal and that he could be discharged after rehabilitation.

    “我的可,你终于醒了!”一名青年捧着一束大到夸张的红玫瑰走进病房,笑眯眯地望着正靠在枕头上看书的尚可。

“My Ke, you’re finally awake!” A young man walked into the ward with an enormous bouquet of red roses, smiling at Shang Ke who was leaning on the pillow and reading a book.

    尚可抬头朝他望去,眸目之间,光华流转,看得那名青年心头一动。一个晕迷了九个多月的人,不是应该面色惨淡、双眼无神、身形削瘦、神色萎靡吗?为什么他看起来似乎比以前更加光彩照人了?!

Shang Ke looked up towards him, and his brilliant eyes caused the young man’s heart to move. For a person who has been in a coma for more than nine months, shouldn’t he look gloomy with a pair of dull eyes, thin body and lacking energy? Why does he seem to look even more radiant than before?!

    “……戚辰?”尚可目不转睛地盯着他。

“… Qi Chen?” Shang Ke stared at him fixedly.

    “当然是我,除了身为挚友的我,谁会在第一时间赶来看你?”戚辰将玫瑰放在床头柜上。

“Of course it’s me. Who would come to see you immediately other than me who is your best friend?” Qi Chen placed the rose on the bedside cabinet.

    尚可看了他一会,突然又开口道:“你……看起来很眼熟。”

Shang Ke looked at him for a while and suddenly spoke again, “You… look very familiar.”

    戚辰:“难道刚才叫出我的名字是蒙的吗……”

Qi Chen: “Don’t tell me you have called out my name just now by guessing…”

    并不是,只是比起他这个人,尚可更关注他的名字。因为辰霄在修真前就叫“戚辰”,时间太久远,加上他一直以“辰霄”称之,倒是把他的本名给忘了。直到看见戚辰,才突然想起来。

That’s not the case. It’s just that Shang Ke is more concerned about his name than him as a person. Because, Chen Xiao was called “Qi Chen” before he started cultivating. It was too long ago, plus he has always been called “Chen Xiao”, so Shang Ke had forgotten his real name. It was only when he saw Qi Chen that he suddenly remembered.

    不过,尚可很确定眼前这个戚辰并非他的辰霄。虽然戚辰也让他感到有些熟悉,但并不是那种心动的熟悉。

However, Shang Ke is very sure that this Qi Chen is not his Chen Xiao. Although Qi Chen also made him feel somewhat familiar, it was not that kind of heart-moving familiarity.

    “好了,人也看过了,你可以走了。”尚可嫌弃地朝他摆摆手。

“Well, I’ve already seen you. You can go now.” Shang Ke waved his hand at him disgustedly.

    戚辰大受打击:“我好心来看你,歇都不让歇一会就赶我走?”

Qi Chen was greatly affected: “I came to see you with good intentions, but you’re kicking me out without even giving me time to rest?”

    “你还好意思说?我没揍你就算好的了!”尚可怒目而视,“要不是你总拿我做你的分手借口,我怎么会被你的前女友堵在路口一通咒骂,然后倒霉地出了这场车祸?”

“You still have the nerve to say? It’s already good enough that I didn’t beat you up!” Shang Ke glared, “If you hadn’t always used me as your excuse to break up, how would I have been blocked by your ex-girlfriend at the intersection and cursed at, and then unluckily got into this car accident?”

    “什么,还有这种事?”戚辰神色一变,冷声问,“是谁?”

“What, there is such a thing?” Qi Chen’s expression changed and asked in a cold voice, “Who was it?”

    “什么是谁?”

“What do you mean by who was it?”

    “害你出车祸的我的‘前’女友!”

“My ‘ex’ girlfriend who caused you to have this accident!”

    “你的‘前’女友那么多,我怎么知道是哪个?”尚可费解地望着他,“我一直有个疑问,你很多次分手的时候,我明明不在场,你那些‘前’女友为什么好像个个都认识我?”

“You have so many ‘ex’ girlfriends, how would I know which one it is?” Shang Ke looked at him in puzzlement, “I always had a question. Many times when you broke up, I was clearly not present, why do all your ‘ex’ girlfriends seem to know me?”

    戚辰优雅地抽出一支玫瑰,一下一下地掰着花瓣,企图逃避这个问题。

Qi Chen elegantly pulled out a rose and broke the petals one by one in an attempt to evade the question.

    “说!”尚可将他手上的玫瑰夺过来,阻止他继续辣手摧花。

“Say it!” Shang Ke snatched the rose out of his hand, stopping him from continuing his flower destruction.

    “咳,其实是这样的。”戚辰吞吞吐吐地回道,“我将你从小到大的照片,制作成了qq表情包。每次分手的时候,我就用表情包轰炸她们……”

“Ahem, actually it’s like this.” Qi Chen stammered as he reply, “I took your photos from childhood to adulthood and made them into qq emoji packs. Every time we break up, I bombard them with expression packs…”

    尚可眼中刀光剑影,无数污言秽语在脑中刷屏,最终总结成一个字:“渣!”

Shang Ke eyes were shooting out  knives and swords. Countless foul words flashed in his brain which was finally summed up into one word: “Scum!”

    对于这个评价,戚辰不痛不痒,还露出一副看破红尘的模样:“感情这种事本来就强求不得,大家好聚好散不是挺好的?交往的时候,我可没亏待她们。只是感情淡了,自然要分手了。”

Regarding this evaluation, Qi Chen wasn’t hurt and even revealed a ‘seen through life’ look: “Feeling is something that cannot be forced in the first place. Wouldn’t it be good if we part ways nicely just like how we were when we were together? When we were dating, I did not treat them badly. It’s just that my feelings faded, so it is natural to break up.”

    尚可:“呵呵。”

Shang Ke: “Haha.”

    别人一辈子交的女朋友都没有你一个月多,你还好意思谈感情?

Other people have not had as many girlfriends in their lives as you have in a month, and you still have the nerve to talk about feelings?

    “不说这个了,医生说你下个月就可以出院了,到时候我来接你。”戚辰眼中难掩喜色。虽然他的人品有待商酌,但他对尚可的关心倒是真的。

“Let’s not talk about this anymore. The doctor said you can be discharged next month, I will come to pick you up.” Qi Chen eyes cannot hide his joy. Although his character is questionable, his concern for Shang Ke is true.

    尚可初中时父母双亡,其他亲戚都不愿意收养他,最后还是戚辰说服自己的父亲,资助尚可考上大学。这也是为什么尚可对戚辰十分宽容的原因。

Shang Ke’s parents died when he was in junior high school, and other relatives were unwilling to adopt him. Finally, it was Qi Chen who convinced his own father to fund Shang Ke’s university fees. This is the reason why Shang Ke is very tolerant of Qi Chen.

    戚辰与尚可完全是两个极端,一个花心散漫,桀骜不驯;一个洁身自好,勤学上进。戚辰的父亲之所以愿意资助尚可,也是看中了他的品性,希望他对他的儿子有所助益。事实上,除了花心这一点无可救药之外,戚辰确实改变了许多,至少表面看起来也算是一表人才了。

Qi Chen and Shang Ke are completely two extremes, one philandering and unruly; the other clean and studious. The reason why Qi Chen’s father is willing to sponsor Shang Ke is because he liked his character and hopes that he will be of help to his son. In fact, other than Qi Chen’s philandering trait was unchangeable, Qi Chen has indeed changed a lot. At least on the surface, he looks like a good-looking person.

    “我这次住院花了多少钱?”尚可问道。戚家这些年对他的资助,他每一笔都记得清清楚楚,倒不是担心戚家计较,事实上,戚家人对他很好。正因如此,所以他不想带着债务关系和他们交往。

“How much did I spend for my hospitalization?” Shang Ke asked. The Qi family’s financial support for him over the years, he remembered every single one of them clearly. It’s not that he was worried about the Qi family fussing about it. In fact, the Qi family treated him very well. Because of this, he did not want to carry a debt while interacting with them.

    听到这个问题,戚辰脸上露出似怒非怒的纠结表情,幽幽道:“住院费不用你操心,都是肇事者支付的。”

Hearing this question, Qi Chen’s face showed a seemingly angry yet not angry tangled expression. He quietly said, “You don’t have to worry about the hospital fee, they are paid by the perpetrators.”

    “持续支付了九个多月?”尚可住的这家医院可是市里最好的一家,而且是vip病房,维持每天的营养输液都是一笔不小的开销,绝对不是普通人家负担得起的。况且严格来说,车祸的主要责任不在对方,若非他不小心被戚辰的前女友推出马路,也不会发生这种事。

“They continued to pay for more than nine months?” The hospital where Shang Ke was in is one of the best in the city, and he was in the vip ward. Maintaining the daily nutritional infusion is a considerable expense and definitely not affordable for ordinary families. Moreover, strictly speaking, the main person responsible for the car accident was not on their side. If he wasn’t accidentally pushed out of the road by Qi Chen’s ex-girlfriend, this would not have happened.

    “嗯。”戚辰似乎不想多谈,回答得很是敷衍。

“Yes.” Qi Chen didn’t seem to want to talk much and answered perfunctorily.

    那位肇事者还真是善良慷慨的好人,尚可又开始相信人生了。

That perpetrator was really kind and generous. Shang Ke began to believe in life again.

    戚辰在病房里赖了两个小时,才依依不舍地离开。

Qi Chen stayed in the ward for two hours before reluctantly leaving.

    尚可看着那捧霸占床头柜的玫瑰花束,想到今天正好是情人节,眉毛一挑,坐上轮椅,抱起玫瑰,然后来到楼下的花园,开始挨个赠送。

Shang Ke looked at the bouquet of roses that dominated the bedside cabinet. Thinking that today happens to be Valentine’s Day, his eyebrows raised. He got into his wheelchair, picked up the roses, then went downstairs to the garden and began to give them away one by one.

    市区一家五星酒店中,尉勋光着身体从浴室走出来,身上的水渍都没有擦拭,任由水珠顺着结实的肌肉一滴滴滑落,深刻的五官轮廓,在光线的投影下,显得异常冷峻。

In a five-star hotel in the city, Wei Xun walked out of the bathroom naked, not even wiping the water droplets on his body and letting the water droplets slide down his firm muscles drop by drop. His deep facial features looked unusually cold under the projection of light.

    正在这时,一阵手机铃声在房间中响起。

At this moment, a cell phone’s ringing sounded in the room.

    尉勋一边擦头发,一边接起手机:“什么事?”

Wei Xun picked up the phone while wiping his hair, “What is it?”

    “勋爷,躺在医院的那位已经苏醒了。”

“Master Xun, the person lying in the hospital has awakened.”

    尉勋脑中立刻浮现出那名青年的影像。时隔几个月,他已经不太记得那人的模样了,但某种异样的感觉总是在心头萦绕不去。当初明明只是惊鸿一瞥,却给他留下了深刻的印象。换做其他人,或许没什么奇怪的,但尉勋是一个脸盲,他很肯定,自己看那人第一眼时,确实记住了他的样子。

The image of that young man immediately came to Wei Xun’s mind. A few months had passed and he could not remember much about the person’s appearance, but a certain strange feeling always lingered in his heart. Back then, he only caught a glimpse, but it left a deep impression on him. If it were anyone else, it might not be surprising, but Wei Xun has facial blindness. He was certain that he remembered the man’s appearance after only seeing him for the first time.

    思索片刻,尉勋换上衣服,让司机送他去市医院。

After thinking about it for a moment, Wei Xun changed his clothes and asked the driver to take him to the city hospital.

    走下车,尉勋循着记忆朝住院部走去。经过花园时,余光瞥见一抹绚丽的红。转头望去,只见一名青年正坐在轮椅上,手捧着一大束玫瑰,微笑着和身边的人交谈。

Walking out of the car, Wei Xun followed his memory towards the inpatient department. As he passed through the garden, he caught a glimpse of a brilliant red from the corner of his eyes. Turning his head to look, he saw a young man sitting in a wheelchair holding a large bouquet of roses, smiling and talking to the person beside him.

    在一片清冷的色彩中,唯独他妖艳似火。即使相隔数十米,也能轻易夺走别人的目光。

In the world of cool colors, he was the only one who was bewitchingly beautiful like fire. Even if they are tens of meters apart, he could easily take away the attention of others.

    尉勋不由自主地朝他走去,随着距离的拉近,他的面容逐渐在他的视线中变得清晰明了,眉、眼、鼻、唇……俊美,细致,浅笑之间,神采怡然。

Wei Xun can’t help but walk towards him. As the distance draws closer, his face gradually becomes clearer in his sight. Eyebrows, eyes, nose, lips… handsome and meticulous, he had a relaxed look as he smiled. 

    长久以来,尉勋都只能依靠声音、气味、身形、着装、步伐、习惯等分辨周围人的身份,此刻,他却用眼睛看清了一个人,记住了一个人。

For a long time, Wei Xun can only rely on the voice, smell, body shape, dressing, pace, habits, and so on to distinguish the identity of the people around him. But at this moment, he had used his eyes to see a person and remember a person.

    是他。

It was him.

    九个月前,那个被他的司机撞伤入院、直到昨天以前还处于昏迷状态的青年。

Nine months ago, the young man who was hit by his driver and admitted to the hospital was still in a coma until yesterday.

    尉勋无比笃定。

Wei Xun was very sure.

    尚可抬起头,黝黑的眸子中清晰地映照出这个男人的身影。

Shang Ke raised his head, and the figure of this man was clearly reflected in his dark eyes.

    无论容貌如何改变,他依然能够一眼将他认出。

No matter how much his appearance had changed, he was still able to recognize him at once.

    尚可眉眼弯弯,递上一支艳红的玫瑰:“送给你,祝你找到你的命定伴侣。”

Shang Ke’s brows curved and he handed over a rose, “For you, wishing that you find your destined partner.”

    尉勋接过玫瑰,开口说:“我叫尉勋。”

Wei Xun accepted the rose and said, “My name is Wei Xun.”

    “你好,尉勋,我叫尚可。”

“Hello, Wei Xun, my name is Shang Ke.”

    “我知道。”尉勋目不转睛地盯着他。

“I know.” Wei Xun stared at him unblinkingly.

    “我也知道你。”尚可笑道,“你就是把我撞成植物人的罪魁祸首的老板。”

“I know you too.” Shang Ke laughed, “You’re the boss of the culprit who knocked me into a coma.”

    从来没道过歉的尉勋:“……”

Wei Xun, who had never apologized before: “…”

    “不用道歉。”尚可接着说,“这场事故的责任不在你们,你们也负担了所有医疗费用,严格来说,我还得谢谢你们的照顾。”

“No need to apologize.” Shang Ke continued, “You are not responsible for this accident, and you have covered all the medical expenses. Technically speaking, I have to thank you for taking care of me.”

    “不用。”尉勋在他面前,下意识收起了自己的锋芒,看起来如同青年才俊一般风姿卓越,把他身边的保镖兼助理看得心惊肉跳。

“No need.” In front of him, Wei Xun subconsciously put away his sharpness, looking as poised as a young talented man, making the bodyguard-cum-assistant beside him look frightened.

    “尉勋,我下个星期三就出院了,到时候能请你到家里吃顿饭吗?”诱拐爱人的第一步就是先打好关系,先用终极无敌的美食抓住他的胃,再用惨绝人寰的美颜抓住他的心,然后就可以愉快地这样那样了。

“Wei Xun, I will be discharged from the hospital next Wednesday, can I invite you to have a meal at my home then?” The first step to abducting a lover is to first have a good relationship. First, grab his stomach with the ultimate invincible food, then grab his heart with his extremely tragic beauty, and then you can happily do this and that.

    “好。”尉勋想也不想就答应了。

“Okay.” Wei Xun agreed without even thinking about it.

    勋爷,要不要答应得这么爽快?您忘了您星期三要回去参加一年一度的家庭聚会吗?助理在心中呐喊。

Master Xun, do you have to agree so readily? Have you forgotten that you are going back to the annual family gathering on Wednesday? The assistant cried out in his heart.

    “那就说定了。”尚可露出一个360度无死角的完美笑容,毫无意外地闪瞎了某个男人那双脸盲的眼睛……

“Then it’s a deal.” Shang Ke showed a perfect at all 360-degree smile, unsurprisingly blinding a certain man’s facial blindness eyes…
