Chapter 265: This Life—The Beginning (VI)


TL: Resonance

    尚可睡眼惺忪地看着眼前这个捧着早餐站在他家客厅的家伙。

Shang Ke looked sleepily at the guy standing in front of him with breakfast in his living room.

    “你来干什么?”尚可问。

“Why did you come?” Shang Ke asked.

    “和你一起吃早餐。”尉勋举了举手上包装精美的食盒, “顺便培养友谊。”

“To have breakfast with you.” Wei Xun held up the beautifully wrapped food box in his hand, “As well as to cultivate friendship.”

    按照正常人的思维,面对一个新鲜出炉、权势滔天的qj犯, 就算不报警,不找人报复, 不见面就掐,也不会有什么“友谊”可培养。偏偏尚可知道这个男人只对自己“强”有独钟, 而自己又特别喜欢他。对他的专横霸道唯我独尊,自己总是如此清新脱俗大爱无边, 一个将qj他当作终身成就(即使没记忆),一个将被他qj当作恋人情怀(因为有记忆)。

According to normal people’s thinking, when they face a new and powerful rapist, even if they didn’t call the police, did not look for revenge, nor did they strangle him the moment they meet, they won’t have any “friendship” to cultivate. However, Shang Ke knew that this man has a soft spot for him, and Shang Ke liked him very much too. Facing his bossy and domineering behaviour, Shang Ke have always been unconventional and loved him regardless of what he did. The one who raped treated it as a lifelong achievement (even if he had no memories), and the one who got raped treated it as his lover’s feelings (because he has the memories).

    所以最后结论是,尉勋不是正常人,他也不是。

So the final conclusion is that Wei Xun is not a normal person, and neither is he.

    尚可坐在沙发上,一边吃早餐一边想:老夫老妻似乎已经不足以形容他们的关系, 或许应该叫“世代奸夫”?

Shang Ke sat on the sofa, eating breakfast while thinking: “Old married couple” does not seem to be sufficient to describe their relationship anymore, perhaps they should be called “world generations of adulterers”?

    唉,忧虑,这样还怎么好好做盆友嘛?

Ugh, how worrying. How are they going to continue being friends at this rate?

    别人都是费尽心思让喜欢的人爱上自己, 他却要费尽心思让喜欢的人爱上自己又不能让外人发现他爱上了自己, 在精神上发展爱情的同时,又要保持肉体上的纯洁无暇。

Other people are trying to make the person they like fall in love with them, but he has to go to great lengths to make the person he likes fall in love with him and not let outsiders find out that he is in love with him. They had to develop love spiritually while maintaining physical purity.

    尉勋见尚可一脸深沉,低眉不语,暗道自己前天的冲动,果然还是让他对自己有了芥蒂。

Wei Xun saw that Shang Ke’s face was dark with lowered eyebrows and he wasn’t speaking, and secretly thought that his impulsiveness the day before had made Shang Ke have grievance against him.

    “不合口味?”尉勋打破沉静。

“Is it not to your taste?” Wei Xun broke the silence.

    “作为早餐而言,”尚可一板一眼地评价,“营养搭配不够合理,三明治、小面包、奶酪、果汁、火腿、培根、鸡蛋都属于酸性食物,摄取过量,容易导致血液偏酸性,引起生理上酸碱平衡失调,最好能搭配一些蔬菜水果。”

“As breakfast,” Shang Ke commented rigidly, “the nutrition combination is not reasonable enough. Sandwiches, buns, cheese, juice, ham, bacon and eggs are all acidic foods. Excessive intake will easily lead to acidic blood, causing an imbalance in the physiological pH balance. It would be better to pair it with some vegetables and fruits.”

    尉勋:“……”谁买的早餐,回头削死他们!

Wei Xun: “…” Who bought the breakfast, I will cut them to death when I get back!

    尚可起身,去厨房捣鼓了一会,端出一份色彩鲜亮的水果拼盘和两杯热麦片。

Shang Ke got up and went to the kitchen and fiddled about for a while before bringing out a colourful fruit platter and two cups of hot cereal.

    “这样就完美了。”尚可额间的头发微微翘起,一脸自得,完全没意识到自己又进入日常宠夫模式。

“This is perfect.” The hair on Shang Ke’s forehead curled up slightly and he had a self-satisfied face, completely unaware that he had entered the spoiling-his-husband mode again.

    尉勋目不转睛地盯着他,眼中闪过一丝笑意。

Wei Xun stared at him intently with a hint of laughter in his eyes.

    两人“愉快”地享用完各自的早餐,尉勋矜持地告辞离开,脚步异常轻快。

The two of them “happily” enjoyed their respective breakfasts. Then, Wei Xun reservedly excused himself and left with an unusually brisk pace.

    尚可如同贤夫一般将尉勋送走,关上门后还哼起了歌,随即醒觉,自己得瑟个什么劲……

Shang Ke sent Wei Xun away like a virtuous husband and even hummed a song after closing the door. Then he realized, what was he feeling so proud of… 

    之后,尉勋每天不请自来,吃完早餐就走,恰到好处地刷一下存在感,尽量不给尚可造成压力。他打算等关系再熟络一点,就提议让他到自己身边工作,然后将工作地点安排得远一点,接着就可以以此为借口寻找新房子,顺理成章地同居。

After that, Wei Xun comes uninvited every day and leaves after eating breakfast. He displayed the right amount of presence, trying his best not to cause pressure to Shang Ke. He intends to wait for the relationship to become a little more familiar before he proposes to let Shang Ke work by his side. Then, he will arrange the workplace to be a little farther away, which he will then be able to use as an excuse to find a new house, and logically live together.

    尉勋的计划是很好的,但计划总是赶不上变化。就在他觉得时机成熟时,尚可不见了。准确地说,他出国了。招呼也不打,就这样悄无声息地出国了。

Wei Xun’s plan was a good one, but plans are always unable to catch up with changes. Just when he thought the time was right, Shang Ke disappeared. To be precise, he left the country. Without even telling him, he left the country silently.

    可想而知,当尉勋发现这件事后,心情有多糟糕。他很自然地认为之前的温和,都只是让他放松警惕的假意顺从。所谓的做朋友,也只是方便他逃跑的托词。

One can imagine how bad Wei Xun’s mood was when he found out about this. He naturally thought that all the previous gentleness was just a fake obedience to make him let down his guard. The so-called being friends was also just a pretext to facilitate his escape.

    “砰!”尉勋一拳重重砸在桌上,眼中闪过一丝暴虐。

“Bang!” Wei Xun slammed his fist heavily on the table and a hint of tyranny flashed in his eyes.

    “立刻给我找到他。”他冷冷地下令。

“Find him for me immediately.” He ordered coldly.

    “是的,勋爷。”

“Yes, Master Xun.”

    尚可还不知道自己又惹怒了某只暴龙,他出国并不是为了避开尉勋,而是为了申请专利。

Shang Ke still didn’t know that he had angered a certain Tyrannosaurus again; he hadn’t left the country to avoid Wei Xun, but to apply for a patent.

    他将这件事告诉了戚辰,却没有告诉尉勋。以他和尉勋的关系,应该还没有“好”到需要随时报备日程的地步。况且提交申请也花不了几天时间,剩下的只要回国等结果就行了。

He told Qi Chen about it, but not Wei Xun. The relationship between him and Wei Xun should not be so “good” to the point that he needs to report his schedule at all times. Besides, it would only take a few days to submit the application, so the rest is just a matter of waiting for the result back home.

    不过尚可也没有立刻回国,而是在网上大肆扫荡各企业公司发布的有偿任务,用自己的技术换取金钱。任务五花八门,而且大部分出价不高,但在数量的积累下,也让尚可小赚了一笔。

But Shang Ke did not immediately return home. Instead, he went on the Internet and wantonly cleared all the paid tasks issued by various companies, using his skills to earn money. The tasks were varied and most of them did not offer high prices, but with the accumulation of many tasks, they allowed Shang Ke to make a small profit.

    如果有人做一个统计,一定会惊奇地发现,尚可四天之内一共接了45个单,完成度高达92%,其中8%主要是还没有回复和故意跳单的任务。由于这些任务来自于于不同网站不同国家,所以尚可疯狂扫荡网络任务的壮举并没有被人发现。

If someone does a statistic, he will certainly be surprised to find that Shang Ke received a total of 45 orders in four days, with a completion rate of 92%, of which 8% are mainly tasks that have not yet been answered and intentionally skipped. Since these tasks came from different websites and countries, Shang Ke’s feat of crazily completing the task went unnoticed.

    “叮咚!”门外传来敲门声。

“Dingdong!” There was a knock on the door.

    尚可一边敲击键盘一边用Y语大声问了一句:“谁啊?”

While tapping on the keyboard, Shang Ke asked loudly in Y language: “Who is it?”

    “客房服务。”

“Room service.”

    客房服务?尚可看了看时间,快0点了,还搞什么客房服务?慢着,难道是传说中的那种特殊服务?!

Room service? Shang Ke looked at the time. It was almost 0:00, what room service? Wait, is this the legendary special service?!

    虽然很想见识一下,但又觉得有点浪费时间,于是尚可回道:“抱歉,我已经休息了,不需要客房服务。”

Although he would like to see it very much, he also felt that it’s a bit of a waste of time, so Shang Ke said back: “Sorry, I’m already resting, I don’t need room service.”

    门外再无声息,尚可也没在意,专心将手上的工作完成,然后伸了伸懒腰,关掉电脑,去浴室洗了个澡,扑到床上就关灯睡觉了。

There was no more noise outside the door, and Shang Ke didn’t care either. He focused on finishing the work at hand, then stretched, turned off the computer, went to the bathroom and took a shower, flung himself onto bed and turned off the lights and went to sleep.

    半睡半醒间,感觉身体有些沉重,似乎有一条巨蟒将自己紧紧缠住,皮肤上传来炽热而酥麻的触感。

While he was half-asleep, he felt some heaviness on his body, as if there was a huge python wrapped tightly around him. Hot and tingling sensations could be felt from his skin.

    尚可警觉地睁开眼,发现自己正趴伏在床上,一腿屈在身侧,后腰被抬起,猛地一痛,身体被人大力贯穿。

Shang Ke opened his eyes alertly and found himself lying prone on the bed with one leg bent to the side. His waist was lifted, and with a sharp pain, his body was vigorously penetrated.

    “啊!”尚可忍不住痛呼一声,拽起枕头反手朝身后的人砸去。对方轻松挡开,钳住他的手臂,更加猛烈地攻击。

“Ah!” Shang Ke couldn’t help but cry out in pain, yanking up a pillow and slamming it backhanded at the person behind him. The other person easily blocked it and clamped down on his arm, attacking even more violently.

    “滚开!”黑暗的房间中,尚可看不清对方的面目,气味倒是有些熟悉,但他不能100%肯定。

“Get out!” In the dark room, Shang Ke couldn’t see the other man’s face. The smell was somewhat familiar, but he wasn’t 100% sure.

    男人的动作激烈而强势,不给尚可任何反抗的余地。床铺发出吱呀吱呀的震响,伴随着有节奏的碰撞声和肢体的摩ca声,在静寂的房间中回响。

The man’s movements were fierce and strong, not giving Shang Ke any room to resist. The sound of the bed creaking, accompanied by the rhythmic colliding sound and the sound of the body rubbing together, echoed in the silent room.

    挣扎间,尚可摸到了男人手臂上的一个已经结痂的疤痕,这是他们第一次时,他在尉勋手上留下的最深的一道抓痕。

While struggling, Shang Ke touched a scabbed scar on the man’s arm. This was the deepest scratch he had left on Wei Xun’s hand when they first did it.

    MD,果然是这个混蛋!

Fuck, it really is this bastard!

    尚可这次是真的有些生气了。无论他对这个男人有多容忍,那也是在明确他的身份、自愿让他欺负的前提下。但他这样一声不吭地潜入他的房间、像个BT一样肆意侵犯他,已经超出他的容忍范畴了。

Shang Ke was really a bit angry this time. No matter how tolerant he was of this man, that was only if he was clear of his identity and voluntarily let him bully him. But for him to sneak into his room like this without saying a word and violate him wantonly like a pervert was beyond his tolerance.

    “尉勋!”尚可怒喝一声。

“Wei Xun!” Shang Ke bellowed angrily.

    男人顿了片刻,随即俯身在他后背亲了亲,用力抽动几下后便退了出来,然后拉起裤头,下床走出了房间。

The man paused for a moment, then leaned down and kissed him on the back. He withdrew after thrusting hard a few times, then he pulled up his pants and got out of bed and walked out of the room.

    干完就走,你几个意思?

What do you mean by leaving after fucking?

    尚可浑身酸痛地坐起来,感觉腿间似乎有什么东西流出来,忍不住低咒一声,跳下床,踉踉跄跄冲进浴室。

Shang Ke sat up with a sore body and felt something coming out from between his legs. He couldn’t help but curse, then jumped out of bed and stumbled into the bathroom.

    尉勋回到自己的房间,背靠在门上,沉默地望着天花板,暴虐的情绪有些难以抑制。

Wei Xun returned to his room and leaned his back against the door, staring at the ceiling in silence, his tyrannical emotions somewhat hard to restrain.

    他想完完全全拥有那个人,但他是个男人,如果只是上几次床还无所谓,但若想真正在一起,必然会遇到巨大的阻碍。即使有他的保护,也很难保障他的安全,但他控制不住自己。得知尚可逃出国,他毫不犹豫地追踪过来,在他身上发泄怒火和不安,随后又感到无比后悔和心疼。他既想将他牢牢捆在身边,又不得不顾忌被发现的后果。家人的阻挠和社会的舆论,都有可能将尚可打入万劫不复的境地。更何况,尚可还没有接受他。

He wanted to have that person completely, but he was a man. It wouldn’t matter if it was just a few times in bed, but if he wanted to really be together with Shang Ke, he was bound to encounter huge obstacles. Even with his protection, it would be hard to keep Shang Ke safe, but he couldn’t control himself. When he learned that Shang Ke had fled the country, he followed without hesitation. He vented his anger and uneasiness on him, then felt an overwhelming sense of regret and heartache afterwards. He wanted to keep Shang Ke firmly locked to his side, but also had to be concerned about the consequences of being discovered. The obstruction of his family and the public opinion of the society could land Shang Ke into a situation of no return. To add on, Shang Ke had not yet accepted him.

    但即便如此,他也不可能放手。

But even so, he couldn’t let go.

    尉勋缓缓垂下头,半眯的眼睛中,闪烁出凌厉的光芒。

Wei Xun slowly hung his head down, and a fierce light flashed in his half-squinted eyes.

    第二天,尚可把自己收拾好,一边吃早餐一边等尉勋上门。果然,7点整的时候,敲门声响起。

The next day, Shang Ke cleaned himself up and ate breakfast while waiting for Wei Xun to come. As expected, at exactly 7:00, there was a knock on the door.

    尚可开门放他进来,然后回到位置坐好,继续吃早餐。

Shang Ke opened the door and let him in, then returned to his seat and continued eating breakfast.

    “我们谈谈。”尉勋在他身边坐下。

“Let’s talk.” Wei Xun sat down next to him.

    “你说。”尚可叉起一根火腿,含在嘴里细嚼慢咽。

“Go ahead.” Shang Ke forked up a ham and chewed it in his mouth.

    尉勋的目光停在那两片含着火腿的嘴唇上,说道:“我想和你签一份协议。”

Wei Xun’s eyes rested on those lips with the ham and said, “I want to sign an agreement with you.”

    “关于什么?”

“About what?”

    “关于在保证彼此都不结婚不出轨的前提下如何长期有效地包养你的相关权利和义务。”

“About the rights and obligations related to how to effectively keep you for a long term under the premise that neither of us will get married or cheat on each other.”

    尚可将这句话在脑子了转了几圈才捋顺。

Shang Ke understood this sentence only after processing it a few times.

    他放下吃了一半的火腿,问道:“你觉得一个正常男人有什么理由会同意和你签订这种协议?”

He put down his half-eaten ham and asked, “What reason do you think a normal man would have to agree to enter into such an agreement with you?”

    如果没有发生昨晚的事情,他说不定还会考虑一下,毕竟他不是正常男人,但现在免谈。尉勋对他的感情,一世比一世强烈,相对的,初体验也是一世比一世渣。一旦确定关系,他根本藏不住。

If what happened last night hadn’t happened, he might have considered it. After all, he wasn’t a normal man. But now, it was not possible. Wei Xun’s feelings for him get stronger every world, and in relation, he becomes more and more of a scum in every world. Once their relationship was established, he simply could not hide it.

    “事实上,我并不需要争取你的同意。”尉勋平静地说,“但我不想强迫你。”

“In fact, I do not need to fight for your consent.” Wei Xun said calmly, “But I don’t want to force you.”

    尚可:……无力吐槽。

Shang Ke: … He had no energy to curse.

    “如果我拒绝呢?”

“And if I refuse?”

    “我会将这份协议镶入你的手机、电脑、邮件、网页等等,只要你打开任何一项都能看到,直到你点击同意为止。”

“I will inlay this agreement into your phone, computer, email, web page, etc., so that you can see it whenever you open any of them, until you click to agree.”

    明目张胆地投放木马病毒,你还能更流氓一点吗?

Blatantly dropping a Trojan horse virus, could you be any more rogue?

    尚可叹了口气:“听听我的提议?”

Shang Ke sighed: “Listen to my proposal?”

    “你说。”

“Go ahead.”

    “我们没必要把事情弄得这么复杂。”尚可缓缓道,“我们是独立的个体,拥有各自的事业,无论是让你迁就我,还是让我依附你,都不太适合。与其遮遮掩掩地发展地下关系,不如单纯直白一点,做合作伙伴吧。”

“We don’t need to make things so complicated.” Shang Ke said slowly, “We are independent individuals with our own careers. Whether it’s for you to accommodate me or for me to depend on you, it’s not really suitable. Rather than cover up and develop an underground relationship, let’s be simple and straightforward and be collaborative partners.”

    “合作伙伴?”

“Collaborative partners?”

    尚可点头,继续道:“这次我出国是为了申请专利,然后找人合作研发。如果你愿意,我待会就把资料发到你邮箱,你看完后再决定是否和我合作。”

Shang Ke nodded and continued, “I went overseas this time to apply for a patent and then find someone to collaborate on research and development. If you’re willing, I’ll email you the information later, and you can read it and then decide whether to cooperate with me.”

    这个男人总是以保护者和掌控者自居,所以他对自己的要求,永远只局限于家庭和性,从来没想过他也有能力保护他,与他并肩作战。轮回的时候还不太在意,因为身负死亡任务,随时可能离开。但现世不一样,在这里他没有任务,只需要专心谋划他们的未来。外界的压力,对他们而言,不是障碍,而是挑战。

This man has always been a protector and controller, so his demands from Shang Ke are always limited to family and sex, never once thinking that Shang Ke is also capable of protecting him and fighting alongside him. Shang Ke didn’t mind it much during the reincarnations because he was on a death mission and could leave any time. But the present world is different. He has no mission and only needs to concentrate on planning their future. The pressure of the outside world, for them, is not an obstacle, but a challenge.

    尚可很清楚这个男人霸道的秉性,所以不能用强硬手段和他对着干,只能顺着他的毛,一点点达到改造他的目的。

Shang Ke is well aware of this man’s domineering nature, so he cannot use tough approaches against him. He can only smoothen his hair[1] and bit by bit achieve the purpose of transforming him.

    当然,为免他蹬鼻子上脸,也不能过度宠溺。

Of course, in order to prevent Wei Xun from climbing over his head, Shang Ke cannot spoil him too much.

    尚可:与尉勋合作,既能借助这辆重量级的顺风车扶摇直上,又能证明自己的能力。

Shang Ke: By partnering with Wei Xun, he can make use of this heavyweight car to hitchhike a ride up and also prove his ability.

    尉勋:与尚可合作,既能名正言顺地将他留在身边,又能在合作伙伴的外衣遮掩下顺理成章地发展地下关系。

Wei Xun: By partnering with Shang Ke, it would become justifiable to keep him by his side, they could develop an underground relationship logically under the cover of collaborative partners.

    “你觉得怎么样?”

“What do you think?”

    “很好。”

“Very well.”

    两人愉快地达成了战线统一。

The two men happily came to an agreement.

    I don’t like this…belittling rape? Really? This ML always left a bad taste on my mouth. I read the novel because the world’s that he goes are interesting but this is too much man.

  5. Killgore says:

    Author Sama, I was fine with ML throughout the book but this chapter, I am sorry but ML is tyrannical sexual abuser. THIS IS LITERALLY RAPE AND FORCING SOMEONE INTO A RELATIONSHIP! HOW IS THIS ROMANTIC!? HUH? IDGAF IF THEY HAVE BEEN HUSBAND FOR WORLD’S BUT THIS IS NOT OKAY! AT ALL!

    +19

  6. Shane says:

    Apparently because the author did not have enough, they added more rape! Forceful non consensual sex! Stalker behavior! Tyranny! Abuse of power and authority!

    Imagine romanticizing and justifying rape- COULDN’T BE ME.

    It’s not romantic. It’s not sweet. It’s not a lifelong achievement. It’s disgusting, utterly repulsive. It wasn’t this bad the previous arcs, so why?

    I’m cringing.

    • Shane says:

      I don’t understand their mindset of romanticizing rape. I don’t see the appeal of not having consent.

    • Sai says:

      If I was the MC, at this point I’d just kill myself (since it’s not the end), find out who the ML is in the next life (without being discovered), then move as far away as possible and make sure to never cross paths with him and live a beautiful life of happiness and bliss away from all that scum and abuse. At least the part in the system seems less slag-like, so just take that part and be happy with it.
      Seriously.

  8. sarcasx says:

    Good way to ruin a story, author. It’s really sad that this novel took such a bad turn with normalizing and romanticizing something like rape. This is so fckn disrespectful to all the rape survivor’s. Guess this has been the last chapter i will read. Thank you very much for the patience and strength to translate this novel Translator-san! ❤

  9. leprofessionalhobo says:

    Thanks for translating! This arc is really making me uncomfortable. I know that some of the other arcs were also dubious with consent (and that’s completely wrong. No means no, there’s no exception) >.> but this is just way too much. I hope the ML learns that that’s not the way to behave by the end of this arc.
