Chapter 264: This Life—The Beginning (V)


TL: Resonance

    尉勋最近总是做奇怪的梦, 具体内容已经记不清了,但肯定都与尚可有关。醒来后, 心中会有一种奇妙的充实感,当他想要抓住时, 它又会像云雾一般消失无踪。

Recently, Wei Xun has been having strange dreams, the details of which he can no longer remember, but they are definitely related to Shang Ke. When he wakes up, there is a wonderful feeling of fulfillment in his heart. But when he tries to grasp it, it disappears like a cloud.

    尉勋不是一个感情丰富的人,至少他自己这么认为, 所以梦中的体验让他十分费解。更费解的是,为什么他会反复梦到仅仅才见过两三面的尚可?只因为他是自己唯一能够记住的人?

Wei Xun is not an emotional person, at least that’s what he thinks so, so the experience in the dream is very puzzling to him. What was even more puzzling to him was why he was repeatedly dreaming about Shang Ke, whom he had only met two or three times. Just because he was the only person he could remember?

    为此, 他很多天都没有再联系尚可。直到那天在游泳馆外,他又见到了神采飞扬的他,以及和他“亲亲我我”的戚辰。那一刻,他心中升起一股难以言喻的危机感和紧迫感,总觉得自己应该做点什么。

For this reason, he did not contact Shang Ke again for many days. That lasted until that day outside the swimming pool, where he saw the high-spirited him again, as well as Qi Chen who was being “intimate” with him. At that moment, an indescribable sense of crisis and urgency rose in his heart, and he kept feeling that he should do something about it.

    然后就在昨晚, 他做了一场春梦。身体的感觉明确地告诉他,他想要尚可,想要他完完全全属于自己。这种感觉对于从青春期第一次梦遗之后便再也没有明显冲动以至于认为自己是性冷感的尉勋而言, 无异于火山爆发, 汹涌澎湃。

Then last night, he had a wet dream. The feeling in his body clearly told him that he wanted Shang Ke, wanted him to be completely his own. This feeling is like a volcanic eruption for Wei Xun, who has not had any obvious urges since his first wet dream in adolescence and considers himself to be sexually frigid.

    即便如此,他原本也没有打算立刻出手,而是选择用短信交流来缓解自己可怕的欲望。然而,尚可一条信息都没有回。这让火气爆棚的尉勋,终于决定用最简单最直接的方式让他记住自己。

Even so, he originally did not intend to make a move immediately, but instead chose to use text message communication to relieve his terrible desire. However, Shang Ke did not reply to a single message. This made the raging Wei Xun finally decide to use the simplest and most direct way to make Shang Ke remember him.

    于是,尉勋半夜三更跑到尚可的住处,用特种部队学到的技巧撬开门锁,找到正在浴室洗澡的尚可,然后一丝不苟地把他给办了。

Hence, Wei Xun ran to Shang Ke’s place in the middle of the night, used the skills he learned in the special forces to pry open the door, found Shang Ke who was taking a shower in the bathroom and meticulously did him.

    尉勋也不记得自己做了多少次,做得有多狠,总之等他停下来,房间一片狼藉,天也亮了。望着怀中沉睡的尚可,尉勋的手在他身体上划过,体味着激情留下的余韵,耳边似乎还回荡着撩人的呻吟声和破碎的求饶声。尉勋忍不住托起他的身体,埋首在他胸前来回舔弄……

Wei Xun didn’t remember how many times he did it nor how hard he did it. When he stopped, the room was a mess and the sun was up. Wei Xun looked at Shang Ke who was sleeping in his embrace. His hand stroked Shang Ke’s body as he felt the aftertaste of passion. The sound of sultry moans and the broken begging still seemed to be echoing in his ears. Wei Xun could not resist lifting his body and burying his head in his chest to lick back and forth… 

    正在这时,房间外传来大门被打开的声音。

At this moment, the sound of the door being opened came from outside the room.

    尉勋眼神一凛,轻轻放开尚可,翻身坐起。

Wei Xun’s eyes turned cold. He gently let go of Shang Ke and rolled over to sit up.

    “我的可,起床没?哥哥又来蹭饭了!”戚辰一边换鞋一边朝屋里喊道。

“My Ke, are you up yet? Brother is here for a free meal again!” Qi Chen shouted into the house while changing his shoes.

    踩着拖鞋走进厨房,发现连开水都没烧,戚辰不由得嘀咕一句:“难道不在家?”

He stepped into the kitchen with slippers and found that the water wasn’t even boiled. Qi Chen couldn’t help but mutter, “Is he not home?”

    从冰箱里取出一瓶饮料,转身朝尚可的房间走去。刚走到门口,房门就被打开了,戚辰立刻露出一个灿烂的笑容,正准备打招呼,却发现出来的并不是尚可,而是……

He took out a bottle of drink from the refrigerator then turned around and walked towards Shang Ke’s room. Just as he reached the door, the door was opened. Qi Chen immediately showed a bright smile and was about to say hello, but found that the one who came out was not Shang Ke, but… 

    “尉勋?”戚辰惊愕地瞪着眼前的男人,“你怎么会在这里?”

“Wei Xun?” Qi Chen stared at the man in front of him in shock, “Why are you here?”

    尉勋只穿着一条长裤,赤裸着上身,强健的体魄散发着让人紧绷的爆发力,但真正让戚辰在意的,是他身上那一道道暧昧的抓痕。

Wei Xun was wearing only a pair of pants and was topless. His strong physique exuded an explosive power that made people tense, but what really made Qi Chen care was the ambiguous scratches on his body.

    戚辰面色一沉,扔掉手上的饮料就往房间里冲去。尉勋脚步一横,挡住他的去路。

Qi Chen’s face sank. He threw away the drink in his hand and rushed into the room. Wei Xun stretched out his feet and blocked Qi Chen’s way.

    “让开!”戚辰怒喝。

“Get out of the way!” Qi Chen shouted angrily.

    “他正在休息。”尉勋冷冷地盯着他,完全没有放他进去的意思。

“He’s resting.” Wei Xun stared at him coldly with absolutely no intention of letting him in.

    “尉勋!”戚辰眼中怒火狂炽,一字一顿地质问,“你对可可做了什么?”

“Wei Xun!” Qi Chen’s eyes blazed with anger, and he questioned word by word, “What did you do to Keke?”

    “不是显而易见吗?我和他做爱了。”尉勋毫不掩饰地回答“你疯了吗?”戚辰大声吼道,“可可是男人,你怎么能这么做?以你的身份,什么床伴找不到?为什么偏偏要对他下手?”

“Isn’t it obvious? I had sex with him.” Wei Xun replied unabashedly. 

“Are you crazy?” Qi Chen yelled, “Keke is a man, how can you do this? With your status, you can find any bed partner you want. Why did you have to go after him?”

    “我选择谁,不需要向你解释。”

“I don’t need to explain to you who I choose.”

    “混蛋!”戚辰再也无法忍受,猛地朝尉勋挥起拳头。尉勋可是特种兵出身,戚辰这种养尊处优的大少爷又怎么会是他的对手?不过几个回合,他就被尉勋轻松制服。

“Bastard!” Qi Chen couldn’t stand it anymore and swung his fist at Wei Xun. Wei Xun was from the special force, how could a pampered young master like Qi Chen be a match for him? In just a few rounds, he was easily subdued by Wei Xun.

    “尉勋,我不会放过你的!”自己呵护了十几年的人,竟然被这个男人侵犯了!愤怒已经不足以形容戚辰此刻的感受,还有更多难以的复杂情绪。

“Wei Xun, I won’t let you off!” The person he had been caring for for more than ten years had been violated by this man! Anger is no longer enough to describe how Qi Chen feels at this moment. There are more difficult complex emotions.

    尉勋对他的威胁毫不在意,将他拖到门口,顺手从他口袋里摸出一把钥匙。

Wei Xun paid no attention to his threat. He dragged Qi Chen to the door, and smoothly fished out a key from his pocket.

    “你干什么?”戚辰伸手欲夺。

“What are you doing?” Qi Chen reached out to snatch it.

    尉勋快速将钥匙放进自己口袋,然后用力一推,将戚辰退出门外,随即重重关上了房门。

Wei Xun quickly put the key into his own pocket, then pushed Qi Chen hard, pushing Qi Chen out of the door. Then, he heavily closed the door.

    “尉勋,你这个混蛋!”戚辰在外面用力砸门,“你有没有想过会给可可带来多大的麻烦?可可只是一个没有背景的普通人,和你这种高高在上的太子爷玩不起!”

“Wei Xun, you bastard!” Qi Chen slammed the door hard from outside, “Have you ever thought about how much trouble you’ll bring to Keke? Keke is just an ordinary person with no background who can’t afford to play with a high and mighty prince like you!”

    尉勋脚步一顿,然后继续朝尚可的房间走去。

Wei Xun’s movement paused, then continued walking towards Shang Ke’s room.

    戚辰在门外敲了许久,最终在邻居的抱怨声中停止这种无意义的举动。

Qi Chen knocked outside the door for a long time, and finally stopped this meaningless move amidst the neighbors’ complaints.

    打开房门,尉勋发现尚可不知何时已经醒来,正坐在床上,拿着一件宽大的T恤往身上套。

Opening the door to the room, Wei Xun found that Shang Ke had woken up some time ago and was sitting on the bed, holding a wide T-shirt to put on his body.

    尉勋走到床边坐下,沉默地与尚可对视了一会,然后开口道:“不要报警,不然你会有麻烦的。”

Wei Xun walked to the bed and sat down, silently looking at Shang Ke for a moment before speaking, “Don’t call the police, or you’ll be in trouble.”

    MD,把人QJ后的第一句话不是安慰,不是真情告白,也不是狂霸拽地砸钱,而是一句听起来像是“为你好”的威胁!

Fuck. The first words after Wei Xun raped him was not comfort, not a true confession, and not a domineering display of throwing money, but a threat that sounds like it was “for his own good”!

    尚可面无表情地望着他。

Shang Ke looked at him expressionlessly.

    这时,尉勋不知道从哪里摸出一把军刀,递到尚可手中。

At this moment, Wei Xun took out a military knife from who knows where and handed it to Shang Ke.

    干什么?尚可看着这把军刀,一头雾水。

What? Shang Ke looked at the knife and was confused.

    “你可以在我身上捅一刀,我保证不还手,也不会让别人知道这件事。”

“You can stab me in the body, I promise not to fight back, and I won’t let anyone know about this.”

    尚可:……刚刚温存完就送刀子,还按不按牌理出牌了?随便给个几千万也好过“一刀两断”好吗?

Shang Ke: … Just after “comforting”, he gave a knife. Are you not going to play by the rules? Giving a few million dollars is still better than “making a clean break[1]” okay?

    “捅一刀,我们就两清了?”尚可平静地问。

“After I stabbed you, we are clear?” Shang Ke asked calmly.

    尉勋深深望着他:“你所谓‘两清’是指什么?”

Wei Xun looked at him deeply and said, “What do you mean by ‘clear’?”

    “彻底忘记这件事,你走你的阳关道,我过我的独木桥。”

“Completely forget about this matter, you go your way, I cross my bridge.”

    “做过的事情,我不会忘记。”

“I won’t forget what I’ve done.”

    “那就装作什么都没发生,还像以前那样做朋友。”

“Then pretend that nothing happened and be friends like before.”

    “可以上床的朋友。”

“Friends that I can sleep with.”

    “……还要上床?”

“… You still want to sleep with me?”

    “嗯。”

“Yes.”

    嗯个毛?!

What do you mean by yes?!

    尚可:“那我捅你一刀的意义何在?”

Shang Ke: “Then what’s the point of me stabbing you?”

    尉勋:“出气,泄愤,随你怎么想都行。”

Wei Xun: “Out of anger, to vent, whatever you think of it.”

    尚可无语。

Shang Ke was speechless.

    他还没来得及在尉家老爷子那里挂上号,在尉家父母那里刷个脸,和尉家兄妹打好关系,事业也还没有起步。一个深谋远虑的完美计划就这样被某人给破坏了。如果现在就确立关系,估计不出一个月就会被手眼通天的尉家人给发现,然后他就只能在尉勋的保护下,战战兢兢地发展自己的事业,甚至可能没有精力发展事业,光应付尉家人的群攻就够受了。

He hadn’t had the time to see the Wei family’s grandfather, visit the Wei family’s parents, get on good terms with the Wei family siblings, and his career hadn’t even started yet. His far-sighted and perfect plan was ruined by someone just like that. If their relationship is established now, it is estimated that in less than a month, it will be found out by the watchful eyes of the Wei family. Then, he will have to develop his career tremblingly under the protection of Wei Xun. Perhaps, he may not even have the energy to develop his career as he would have to deal with the group attack of the Wei family.

    这还是在假设尉家人比较遵纪守法、手段温和的前提下,要是一言不合就给他丢几个暴击,他铁定扛不住。

This is still under the assumption that the Wei Xun family would use more law-abiding and mild means. If they give him critical damage just because of their disagreement, he will not be able to cope.

    所以,为了长远的幸福,尚可觉得自己不能被短期的性福蒙蔽了心智,必须想办法将非主流的肉体关系掰回纯正直的兄弟情谊。

Hence, for the sake of long-term happiness, Shang Ke felt he could not be blinded by short-term sexual bliss and must find a way to turn the non-mainstream carnal relationship back to a pure brotherly friendship.

    “尉勋,我们好像才见过两三面?”

“Wei Xun, I think we’ve only met two or three times?”

    “嗯。”

“Yes.”

    “你有见三面就把人qj的嗜好?”

“You have the habit of raping people after meeting them three times?”

    尉勋脸一黑:“当然没有。”

Wei Xun’s face darkened: “Of course not.”

    “那你这是……”尚可在两人之间来回指了指,“心血来潮?”

“Then you did this…” Shang Ke pointed back and forth between the two of them, “on a whim?”

    尉勋沉默了一会,说道:“我给过你机会。”

Wei Xun was silent for a moment before saying, “I gave you an opportunity.”

    “什么机会?”

“What opportunity?”

    “慢慢培养感情水到渠成不用被qj的机会。”

“The opportunity to slowly cultivate feelings naturally without having to be raped.”

    “有……这种机会?”他错过了什么不得了的东西?

“There… was such an opportunity?” What unimaginable thing did he miss?

    “当然有。”尉勋肯定,“我给你发了很多短信,但你一条都没回。”

“Of course there is.” Wei Xun affirmed, “I sent you a lot of text messages, but you did not reply any of them.”

    尚可:“……就这样?”

Shang Ke: “… That’s it?”

    “就这样。”

“That’s it.”

    没回短信就要被qj?这世上还有天理吗!

He had to be raped just because he didn’t reply to the messages? Is there still justice in this world?

    尚可紧紧握住他的手,悲愤道:“尉勋,再给我一次机会!我保证以后手机24小时贴身携带,电量充足,每一条短信都巨细无遗的查看!”

Shang Ke held his hand tightly and said in grief, “Wei Xun, give me one more chance! I promise to keep my phone close to me 24 hours a day, fully charged, and to check every text message in great detail!”

    尉勋:“……”

Wei Xun: “…”

    “所以,”尚可无比恳切地请求,“我们就做朋友吧,如果你不嫌弃,做兄弟也行,不上床那种。”

“So,” Shang Ke pleaded with unparalleled earnestness, “Let’s just be friends, or if you don’t mind, brothers is also fine, the non-sleeping together kind.”

    “和我上床,你很难受?”尉勋的眼神幽幽的。

“It’s uncomfortable for you to sleep with me?” Wei Xun’s eyes were faint.

    哦,不,亲爱的,你很勇猛、很持久、很sex,和你上床爽得不行!

Oh no, dear. You’re brave, long-lasting, and sexy, and it’s comfortable to sleep with you!

    尚可嘴上说的却是:“难道你不觉得我们的性别有什么不对吗?”

What came out of Shang Ke’s mouth instead was, “Don’t you think there’s something wrong with our gender?”

    “没什么不对。”他已经仔细摸过了,是一样的。

“Nothing is wrong.” He had already touched it carefully, it was the same.

    “男人,我们都是男人。”尚可义正言辞道,“男人就适合做朋友,做兄弟或者做对手。”

“Men, we’re both men.” Shang Ke said righteously, “Men are suitable to be friends, brothers or rivals.”

    “不是还有‘鸡’友吗?”

“Isn’t there still a ‘chicken[2]’ friend?”

    “……”尚可沉默地盯着他看了半晌,然后无力地躺倒在床上,虚弱道,“我现在浑身酸痛,只想睡觉。”

“…” Shang Ke stared at him in silence for a long time, then lay down weakly on the bed and said weakly, “I’m aching all over now and just want to sleep.”

    尉勋没控制住,笔直的唇线出现了弯曲的弧度。他的反应总是出乎他的预料,原本以为他要么会委屈,要么会愤恨,要么就是迫于他的身份不得不隐忍。没想到,他竟然选择和他讨价还价,企图说服他重新定义他们的关系。其实,他已经做好被戟指怒目、拳打脚踢、人道毁灭的准备了。

 Wei Xun couldn’t control it, and a curved arc appeared on his straight lips. Shang Ke’s reaction was always out of his expectation. He originally thought Shang Ke would either be aggrieved, resentful, or be forced to endure due to his status. Unexpectedly, he chose to bargain with him in an attempt to persuade him to redefine their relationship. In fact, Wei Xun was ready to be scolded, beaten or killed.

    尚可,比他预想的更聪明,也更……可爱。

Shang Ke, was smarter and… cuter than he had expected.

    “好好休息。”尉勋摸了摸他的头发,低声道,“我明白你的意思,你想做朋友,那就先做朋友吧。”

“Rest well.” Wei Xun stroked his hair and whispered, “I understand what you mean. You want to be friends, so let’s be friends first.”

    真的?这么好说话?尚可从被子里探出头,怀疑地望着他。

Really? So agreeable? Shang Ke poked his head out from under the blanket and looked at him doubtfully.

    尉勋俯下身,在他额头上亲了一口,然后起身离开。

Wei Xun leaned down and gave him a kiss on the forehead, then got up and left.

    喂,你这是做朋友的样子?!朋友可以随便亲额头?

 Hey, is this how you behave as a friend?! Friends can just kiss each others’ foreheads?

    尚可盯着关闭的房门看了许久,然后羞羞涩涩地钻进被窝里,顺便滚了几圈。

Shang Ke stared at the closed room door for a long time, then shyly went under the blanket and rolled a few times along the way.

    艾玛,好想亲回去!

Oh my, he wants to kiss back so badly!

    戚辰被尉勋扔出尚可的家后,并没有立刻离开,而是坐在自己的车里,一根一根地抽着烟,就这样从早上一直守到黄昏,才看到尉勋从楼上下来,穿着一套不合身的休闲装,坐上自己的车,呼啸而去。

After being thrown out of Shang Ke’s house by Wei Xun, Qi Chen did not leave immediately. Instead, he sat in his car smoking cigarettes one after another. Just like that, he kept watch from morning until dusk before he saw Wei Xun come down from upstairs. Wei Xun was wearing an ill-fitting casual outfit. He got into his car and whizzed away.

    戚辰又坐了片刻,然后将抽到一半的烟扔掉,抬头朝尚可所在的楼层看了一眼,随即发动车子,离开了小区。

Qi Chen sat for a while more, then threw away the cigarette he smoked halfway. He looked up toward the floor where Shang Ke was, then started his car and left the neighborhood.

    他很想见见尚可,但不是现在。只要想到尚可此刻满身都是那个男人的痕迹,他就难以忍受。

He really wanted to see Shang Ke, but not now. Just the thought of Shang Ke’s body being fully covered in the traces of that man at this moment was unbearable to him.

    即使女朋友被人抢走,他也不曾像现在这样嫉妒过!

He had never been as jealous as he was now, not even when his girlfriend had been snatched away from him!

  1. GhostBear says:

    :0 ML is so scummy…………….Keke, you should reconsider………Qi Cheng is a good choice, albeit a bit of a playboy but he would treasure you (and your body) or at least make ML suffer before accepting him😫🤚
    Thanks for the chapter~♡♡

  2. Tattletail says:

    Im 1st

  3. LK says:

    2nd?

  4. Shane says:

    I felt the need to reiterate this because of how nonchalant the characters were considering there was an abuse of power and non-consensual sex happening here- Rape is not sexy, consent is sexy. I don’t care if they were soulmates from numerous lifetime. Please don’t go abusing your authority to helpless people.

    • Nit_7_7 says:

      I get that Shang Ke knows that he’s his lover but RAPE IS NOT OKAY. It is such a turn off. And the way he just literally forgave him for doing something like that. I know he loves the gong and can’t leave him but he still needs to make him understand that RAPE IS NOT OKAY. As you said, consent is sexy. I get turned on when the partner asks for consent. Not when the forcefully just do whatever they want.

    • Killgore says:

      Eventhough the book is great… I dont like the ML. You cannot just romanticize rape eventhough Shang Ke knows that he was the soul mate. All bullcrap to show how much love they have? 🙄

      • Shane says:

        Honestly. How could they call it love if they weren’t willing to listen and respect their partner’s voice? If I was a guy, my dick would be wilting by how turned off I am right now.

        • Kuro says:

          Lowkey I don’t mind the rape, in fact to me it doesn’t really matter. Albeit I enjoy both consent and rape (ofc not in rl), and consent is obv better, but this ver of the ML i’m still fine with

    • shixiongdii says:

      The ml is fine, his EQ is just offline, remember folks, the consensual ml will only come back if the part of his soul operating the lamp comes back! For every chapter the system aka soul lamp appears, he was always witty and charming and also quite the self sacrificing behavior that I just damn can’t believe… His love for the mc, and he’s mixed feelings for the main soul… Ugh

      • shixiongdii says:

        I just damn wish the author make up his mind and find a way for the ml’s soul to actually be complete, I want to see the difference between the main soul and the complete soul… Particularly with the EQ online!

  5. Halmista says:

    Kinda disappointed really. I was hoping Shang Ke would give him crap for raping him just to teach him a lesson that raping people you just met is 1000% not okay. But they had to handwave it like it was just a casual fling. Author-dada, you should have made it look like a one-night stand since KeKe is willing instead of throwing the word rape around. It’s super uncomfortable. Haiyaaaa….*shakes head*

  6. queenxaya says:

    Unfortunately, MLs in many novels, including this one, suggered from trends of those years. It’s only later when people and authors grew older they finally realized that the MLs they wrote acted really not in line with actually attracktive and respectful man should do. Sure thing there should be passion, but not expressed in this way -__- When I see such an example I always remember Japanese manga, which is abundant with non-con relationships and a top example of author realized their story started really wrong is Hidoku Shinaide, if anyone here read the relationship there started from blackmailing and rape.
    From Shang Ke’s perspective it’s his lover, ok, but from perspective of a world he’s acting as a perpetrator and ML also doesn’t fully know the whole lovers story yet. Smh.
    His friend is fishy, like really, before Shang Ke got an image of them two being sent to reincarnate by a third party and something tells me he might be a third party. But he’s also clingy and creepy, basically sexually harassing Shang Ke. And I can’t understand SK’s attitude towards him.
    Tbh the whole novel, except for ML’s forecefullness is actually pretty good, but with this last arc it kind of spoiled the picture.

    • ryou says:

      true. find these latest chapters to be a bit.. underwhelming. compared with earlier arcs.

  7. forestshadeau says:

    11th
    Thanks for the hard work love the story ^_^

  8. MiaoMiao says:

    augh aw man this chapter left a bad taste in my mouth. It’s been said many times already but this was an extremely disappointing chapter. I’m too far invested in this novel so I may as well finish it since I’m almost done but dang. The ball was really dropped this arc

  9. drenlith says:

    Yeah, nah, I would even prefer a hedonistic playboy over an iceberg rapist. QC can at least be considerate. ML never had an ounce of it. (Ofc he might just declare he had been in terms of letting MC rest for a short time period between fierce restless lovemaking…*eyeroll*) I kept on reading for the amazing translations but wow this story is just going exponentially downhill.

  10. Fan_Girl_Noha says:

    Why is the ML in the real life arc such a turn-off? I feel sad now…😥

  11. puerileworries says:

    My hatred for Wei Xun is unfathomable. Just fucking pick Qi Chen. At least he doesn’t fucking rape people like a psychopath. The MC also needs to be angry sometimes, like what the fuck? you’re not even gonna react to the guy who literally broke into your house and raped you?!?! I really wish I could just scream at Wei Xun. ^__^
