• Akiko: Talking Elbows

Volume six.Treacherous soldiers

Before the middle-aged man looked up, Qing Chen thought that the other party was deaf, and such a big movement around him didn’t even affect him at all.

在中年男人抬头之前,庆尘以为对方聋了,身边这么大的动静,竟然一点都没影响到他。

However, after the middle-aged man raised his head, Qing Chen almost thought he was deaf, because the noisy square was quiet for an instant, and there was no extra noise.

然而在中年男人抬头之后,庆尘几乎以为自己聋了,因为原本嘈杂的广场竟是一瞬间安静下来,没有多余的一点声响。

The surprised look in the eyes of the surrounding crowd, as well as some inexplicable emotions, seemed to set off the identity of a middle-aged man.

周围人群里眼中的惊讶神色,还有一些莫名的情绪,就像是在为中年男人的身份做着衬托。

Because in the past, this middle-aged man never paid attention to others’ requests for help.

为以往这中年男人从来没有理会过别人的求助。

Suddenly Qing Chen breathed a sigh of relief, because all this proved that he was right.

忽然间庆尘松了口气,因为这一切都证明,他赌对了。

The middle-aged man didn’t say anything to him, but calmly pushed the red pawn on the chessboard to advance.

中年男人并没有对他说什么,而是平静的推动了棋盘上红方前卒,进一。

But the black side held by the middle-aged man himself chose to go back and forth and kill the pawn that had just been arched.

而中年男人自己所持的黑方,则选择了象五退七,杀掉了那刚刚悍拱的卒子。

Qing Chen watched the chessboard quietly from a distance. The four bandits captured the king’s endgame was a well-known endgame on the earth. There were two layouts, and he faced the more dangerous game in front of him.

庆尘在远处静静的看着棋盘,这四寇擒王残局是地球上也算有名的残局了,有两种布局形式,他面前则是其中更凶险的那一局。

The so-called endgame generally means that the black side must win, and the red side cannot even make a draw. If it is a draw, the endgame will be solved.

所谓残局,一般是指黑方必胜,红方连和棋都做不到,若是和棋,就算是把这残局给解了。

However, Qing Chen is not satisfied with the draw.

但是,庆尘并不满足于和棋。

The endgame that the Four Kou captures the king is a bit peculiar. The four red soldiers have already crossed the Chu River to the bottom line, and both vehicles are there.

四寇擒王这残局有些奇特,红方四悍卒已经飞渡楚河来到底线之处,并且双车均在。

The situation seems to be evenly matched, but in fact this endgame is killing every step and there are traps everywhere. Black can win with only one move, but the red side can only be exhausted. If you don’t pay attention, you will think that you have the chance to win, and you will be defeated. Anti-kill.

局势看起来彼此好像是势均力敌,然而事实上这残局步步杀机、处处陷阱,黑棋只需一步便能赢棋,红方却只能疲于奔命的,一不留神就会以为自己胜券在握,结果被反杀。

This is seemingly hopeful, but it can make people fall into the desperate situation a little bit.

这是看似充满希望,却能让人一点点陷入绝望的死局。

“Go on,” the middle-aged man said flatly.

“继续,”中年男人平淡道。

Qing Chen said: “Two soldiers and three equals.”

庆尘说道:“兵二平三。”

The middle-aged man’s eyes lit up. At this time, he seemed to be really interested. He was too lazy to fiddle with the chessboard. He closed his eyes and played blind chess with Qing Chen: “Six in one.”

中年男人眼睛一亮,这时候他似乎真的来了兴趣,竟是懒得去拨弄棋盘,直接闭上眼睛与庆尘推演盲棋:“将六进一。”

Qing Chen also closed his eyes: “The rear car enters the fourth.”

庆尘也闭上了眼睛:“后车进四。”

“It’s like seven retreats to nine.”

“象七退九。”

When it came to the sixth round, Qing Chen suddenly said: “The car enters seven!”

到第六回合时,庆尘突然说道:“车一进七!”

The closed eyes of the middle-aged man opened again. He looked at Qing Chen in surprise: “It’s like five retreats seven.”

那中年男人闭上的双眼竟是再次睁开了,他惊讶的看着庆尘:“象五退七。”

In the first five steps, each other’s comings and goings were unremarkable, but after this sixth step, the two sides actually started to change each other step by step!

前五步时,彼此来来往往平淡无奇,可是到了这第六步之后,双方竟开始步步换子!

You kill me! I will kill you! Blood is flowing into a river, and soldiers are everywhere!

你杀我!我杀你!血流成河,哀兵遍野!

Both sides’ courage and determination on the chessboard are extremely cruel.

方在棋盘上之果敢与决断,都极其残酷。

The two are like the calmest generals on the battlefield, sacrificing everything for the final victory.

两人宛如战场上最冷静的将领,为了最后的胜利不惜牺牲一切。

The situation of the four bandits capturing the king unexpectedly forced the two to show off a wave of courage. However, behind this courage, the two sides had deep calculations.

四寇擒王之局,竟硬生生让两人杀出了一股武勇之气,然而在这武勇背后,是双方深沉的算计。

At the beginning of the game, the red side of Qingchen obviously looked more fierce than the four pawns who crossed the river, but he abandoned the four pawns one by one in exchange for other plans, leaving only the last one!

开局时,庆尘这边红方明明是过河四卒看起来更加凶悍,可他却将四卒一一舍弃来换取其他谋划,唯留最后一枚!

At the fifteenth step, Qing Chen finally let out a long suffocating breath: “Five soldiers enter one!”

第十五步,庆尘直到这时终于长长吐出一口浊气:“兵五进一!”

See the picture poorly.

图穷匕见。

Capture the king!

擒王!

It was also at this moment that the final game of the four bandits captured the king finally burst out with unspeakable charm. The situation of mutual understanding in the Chuhe Han realm made the middle-aged man feel like he was really on the battlefield. It’s the same with a counselor.

也是直到这一刻,四寇擒王的残局解棋才终于迸发出难以言喻的魅力,彼此之间在楚河汉界上消杀相解的局势,竟让中年男人感觉像是真的在战场上与谋士对垒一样。

In this chess, every move is extremely dangerous.

这棋,每一步都凶险到了极点。

What surprised the middle-aged man the most was that the young man in front of him was not very old, but he did not hesitate when he abandoned his son to change games.

最让中年男人惊奇的是,眼前少年的年纪并不大,却在弃子换局的时候没有丝毫犹豫。

It is important not to abandon or to give up, but war is war. How can war be without sacrifice?

不抛弃不放弃固然重要,但战争就是战争,战争怎么可能没有牺牲?

He quietly looked at the young man in front of him, who was also looking at him, his expression dignified and stubborn.

他静静的看着面前少年,对方也在与他对视,面色凝重而又倔强。

It seems to be in this desperate situation, to fight a way out and open up a new life.

是要在这绝境中,厮杀出一条生路来,开辟一段新的人生。

He understood that he was playing chess, and the opponent was struggling to survive in an environment surrounded by beasts of steel, and his attitude was different.

明白了,自己是在下棋,对方是在钢铁猛兽环伺的环境里求存,本身态度就有所不同。

No one noticed that at this moment, of the 210 surveillance cameras in the prison fortress, 81 of them turned directly to Qing Chen.

没人注意到,就是这一刻,这监狱堡垒里210台监控摄像,竟是有81个都直接转向了庆尘。

There was a whirlpool in the black camera of the surveillance camera shrinking, as if to focus on Qing Chen’s face.

那监控摄像的黑色摄像头里有漩涡收缩着,似乎是要对焦庆尘的脸部。

No one knows who is focusing behind this surveillance camera.

也不知道这监控摄像的背后,是谁在聚焦。

The middle-aged man smiled and put the black veteran upside down on the chessboard: “It’s interesting, there are not many people who can play chess these days, and we will continue tomorrow.”

中年男人笑了笑把黑方老将倒扣在棋盘上:“有点意思,这年头会下象棋的人不多了,明天继续。”

After speaking, he walked towards the library area with his hands back, leaving the chessboard on the dining table and no one dared to move.

说完,他背着手朝图书区走去,留下那棋盘在餐桌上谁也不敢乱动。

The gray cat on the table stood up and quietly followed the middle-aged man.

那桌上的灰色猫咪站起身来,静悄悄的跟在中年男人身后。

The cat looks like a fur ball when it is lying together, and it doesn’t look big.

猫咪团卧的时候像是一只毛球,看起来并不大。

However, after this stretch, Qing Chen discovered that the cat was over a meter long and was extremely vigorous.

然而这一伸展开来,庆尘才发现这猫体型硕大竟有一米多长,异常矫健。

Ordinary cats walk lightly and are called catwalks, but this cat has walked out of a tiger’s posture.

寻常猫走路都轻飘飘的被人叫做猫步,这只猫却走出了一种老虎的姿态。

All the people on the square who were watching here were stunned. Was this endgame won by the teenager?

广场上所有正在关注着这里的人都愣住了,这残局竟是被少年给赢了?

To be honest, they didn’t understand chess either, and when both sides played blind chess later, they even couldn’t understand it.

说实话他们也不懂象棋,到后来双方下盲棋,他们就更听不懂了。

There are too many entertainment activities in this era, each of which is more exciting and fun than chess.

这个时代里娱乐活动太多了,每一种都比象棋来的更加刺激、更加有乐趣。

They can use the chip to get pleasure directly, and they can log their consciousness into the virtual network. This is a happy and very cheap era. There are very few people playing chess. Can you play artificial intelligence no matter how good it is?

他们可以用芯片来直接获取快感,还能将意识登入虚拟网络,这是个快乐非常廉价的时代,下象棋的人少之又少,下的再好你还能下的过人工智能吗?

However, their surprise at Qing Chen’s victory over the middle-aged man is how could that middle-aged man lose in their eyes?

然而,他们对庆尘赢下中年男人的惊诧点在于,在他们眼里那个中年男人怎么会输?

Whether it is playing chess or fighting, how can the opponent lose?

不管是下棋还是战斗,对方怎么会输?

To be honest, Qing Chen is also a little strange. This middle-aged man obviously doesn’t even have any mechanical limbs, and he doesn’t even have two entourages around him. Why is his prestige so high in this jail where steel beasts are rampant?

说实话庆尘也有些奇怪,这个中年男人明明连机械肢体都没有,连他身边的两个随从也没有,为何在这钢铁猛兽横行的监狱里,威望如此之高?

The young man who stopped Qing Chen before blinked at him: “Great, my name is Lin Xiaoxiao, and his name is Ye Wan. See you tomorrow.”

之前拦着庆尘的那个年轻人对他眨眨眼睛:“厉害啊,我叫林小笑,他叫叶晚,咱们明天见。

After speaking, they left with another young man named Ye Wan, following the middle-aged man’s steps.

说完,便和另一名叫做叶晚的年轻人一起,跟随中年男人步伐离去了。

Qing Chen didn’t even know what the middle-aged man was called at this time. He only knew the names of the two entourages, but now is undoubtedly a good start.

庆尘此时甚至还不知道中年男人叫什么,只知道了两名随从的姓名,但现在无疑是一个很好的开端了。

The atmosphere condensed in the square, it wasn’t until the middle-aged man took Ye Wan and Lin Xiaoxiao to the reading area just now that it finally slowly became active.

广场上凝结的气氛,直到刚刚那位中年男人带着叶晚、林小笑全都去了阅读区,才终于缓缓活络起来。

The prisoner who was just entertaining the newcomer is still pulling the newcomer into the cell. There are a total of 12 newcomers including him, and 9 of them have already been pulled in.

刚刚在招待新人的囚犯,还在不断拉扯着新人进入囚室,包括他在内总共有12名新人,已经被拉进去了9人。

At this time, Qing Chen looked at the prisoners again, but no one made any more attempts at him.

这时候庆尘再看向那些囚犯,却已经没有人再打他的主意。

Suddenly, a young man with mechanical legs ran up to Qing Chen and said in a panic: “We all just came in, you help me, I will listen to you from now on.”

忽然,有一名装载着机械腿的青年跑到庆尘面前,仓惶的说道:“咱们都是刚进来的,你帮帮我,我以后都听你的。

The surrounding prisoners were watching coldly. They were still a little unclear about the situation. Qing Chen would definitely not be able to move, but if this young man wanted to protect other newcomers, they would not want to.

周围囚犯都冷冷看着,他们现在还有点摸不清状况,庆尘肯定是不能动了,但如果这少年想要保其他新人,那他们也不愿意

However, Qing Chen turned a deaf ear to what the young man said, and his face was calm as if he hadn’t heard anything.

然而,庆尘对这青年所言充耳不闻,面色平静的好像什么都没听见似的。

The prisoners laughed and abruptly dragged the young man away.

囚犯们笑了起来,硬生生将这青年给拉走了。

Just listen to the youth yelling: “My uncle is the director of Changming Company in City 17, you guys…”

只听青年大吼:“我舅舅是17号城市长鸣公司的理事,你们……”

Before he could finish his sentence, the other prisoners laughed: “Except for the top five companies, other companies are not worth mentioning. Let alone you, even if your uncle comes to this prison fortress, you have to be honest.”

还没等他把话说完,其他囚犯哄笑起来:“除了五大公司,其他公司不值一提,别说你了,就算你舅舅来到这座监狱堡垒里都得老老实实的。”

Qing Chen listened to all this silently, absorbing all useful information. He was just screening the identities of these newcomers, and wanted to see if there were other people on Earth hiding in them.

庆尘默默的听着这一切,汲取着一切有用的信息,他刚刚在甄别这些新人的身份,想要看看还有没有其他地球人隐藏其中。

He traveled by himself, without any memory of belonging to this world, and now he doesn’t even know how many years he has been sentenced.

他自己穿越过来,完全没有属于这个世界的记忆,到现在他连自己被判了多少年都不知情。

Qing Chen believes that other people have no memory, so if this young man can tell about the interpersonal relationship outside prison, he is probably not his “hometown”.

庆尘相信其他人也没有记忆,所以像这位青年能说出狱外人际关系的,恐怕都不是自己的“同乡”。

Among the 12 new inmates, the only people on earth should be the collapsed teenager and him.

2位新狱友里,地球人应该就只有那崩溃少年和他了。

I don’t know why, Qing Chen doesn’t feel depressed at all. On the contrary, he looks forward to a completely different…life.

不知道为什么,庆尘一点沮丧的感觉都没有,反倒有些期待自己已经截然不同的……人生。

A completely different life.

截然不同的人生。

This sentence sounds very tempting.

这句话听起来就很有诱惑力。

When your own life is already in a mess, someone puts a button in front of you and says: Press this, and there will be an unusual life.

当你自己的生活已经是一团糟了,这时候有人摆在你面前一个按钮说:按下这个,会有一段不同寻常的人生。

But there are two possibilities after pressing.

但是按下之后会有两种可能。

It could be better.

可能更好。

It could be worse.

也可能更坏。

Do you press it?

你按不按?

Qing Chen felt that he should be able to press.

庆尘觉得自己应该会按。

On earth, he seems to have always been a superfluous person. His father thought he was cumbersome, his mother had a new family, and relatives rarely interacted with him.

在地球上,他好像一直都是一个多余的人,父亲嫌他累赘,母亲有了新的家庭,亲戚们也很少与他往来。

Qing Chen has spent two Spring Festivals alone.

庆尘已经独自过了两个春节了。

So, if you say that your past life was all gloomy, then no matter how dangerous, unknown, or terrifying the new world is, it will make people look forward to it.

所以,如果说你过去的人生里都是灰暗,那么,不管新的世界有多么危险、未知、恐怖,都会令人有些期待。

This world is different. For Qing Chen, coming here from the earth is like an adventure in life’s rebellion, but also like a liberation from the past.

这个世界是不同的,从地球来到这里对于庆尘而言,像是人生叛逆里的一次冒险,又像是一场隔绝过去的解脱。

If there were no such changes in the countdown, he would study hard, try to support himself, and then rely on his unique memory to test a very good, far away university, and never come back.

如果没有这场有关倒计时的变故,他应该会好好考学,努力养活自己,然后依靠自己独特的记忆力考一个很好、很远的大学,永不回来。

However, that kind of life still seems boring.

可是,那样的生活好像依旧没什么意思。

He believes that there are not many people traveling with him on the earth, even if there are thousands or tens of thousands, they are all a small percentage compared to the total base.

他相信地球上与他一起穿越的人并不多,就算有几千、几万,相比于总基数而言都是很小的一个比例。

This makes him feel that he is special.

这让他感觉,自己是特殊的。

Countdown 39:31:29.

倒计时39:31:29.

Qing Chen looked at everything around him silently. He wanted to record all the information he could see, and he could analyze it slowly when he returned to the cell alone.

庆尘默默的打量着周围的一切,他要把自己能看到的信息全都记录下来,等独自回到囚室后就可以慢慢进行分析

Above an alloy gate next to the square, there is a blue holographic projection showing the beating time, AM8:29.

广场旁边的一处合金闸门上方,正有一块蓝色的全息投影显示着跳动的时间,AM8:29.

The three-dimensional projected holographic image looked so novel and eye-catching, at 8:29 in the morning.

那立体投射出的全息影像看起来如此新奇又醒目,上午8点29分.

At this moment, a young man took advantage of the other people’s distraction, and then suddenly walked to Qing Chen’s side and said in a low voice: “You finally came in. It is as good-looking as the legend is. I am Lu Guangyi. Qingyan arranged for three of me. If the moon is coming, you can call me a small road.”

就在此时,一个青年趁其他人转移了注意力,才突然走到庆尘身边低声说道:“您终于进来了,果然如传说中一样好看,我就是路广义,庆言安排我三个月前进来的,您叫我小路就行。”

Qing Chen: “???”

庆尘:“???”

He froze for a moment and looked at each other.

他愣了一下看向对方。

This is a young man called Lu Guangyi who is about 24 or 5 years old. He has an inch-long black hair. The right arm and left leg are equipped with mechanical limbs. There are mechanical eyes on the eyes. Qing Chen can even see the spiral in his eyes. The lines are changing the focal length.

这叫做路广义的青年大概24、5岁的模样,寸长的黑色头发,右手臂与左腿都装载了机械肢体,眼部还有机械眼睛,庆尘甚至能看到对方眼睛里有螺旋状的纹路在变换焦距.

This mechanical body is different from most prisoners in terms of streamlined shape and material, it looks very sophisticated.

这一身机械肢体与大部分服刑人员不同,不论是流线造型还是材质,都看起来就十分精良。

Qing Chen searched for memories, tracing the other party’s behavior.

庆尘搜索着记忆,追溯对方的行为轨迹。

At this time, Qing Chen discovered that Lu Guangyi had seen himself 21 times in more than an hour, which was the number of times the opponent was in his field of vision.

这时候庆尘才发现,路广义在一个多小时内竟然看了自己21次,这还是对方在自己视野里的次数。

Qing Chen didn’t know who this person was, but the tone of the other party’s words clearly knew him, and he still used honorifics.

庆尘不知道此人是谁,可对方这说话的语气,分明就是认识自己的,而且用的还是敬语。

According to Lu’s broad meaning, it seems that he has another plan to enter this prison fortress.

听路广义的意思,自己进这监狱堡垒好像也是另有所图。

But Qing Chen is afraid of revealing what he has traveled through, so for the time being, he doesn’t want to have too much intersection with Lu Guangyi: “I don’t need your help for the time being. I can do some things by myself.”

但庆尘怕败露自己穿越的事情,所以暂时不想与路广义有太多交集:“我暂时还不需要你帮忙,有些事情我自己做就可以了。”

Lu Guangyi’s head shook like a rattle: “No way, no way, I must serve you well.”

路广义脑袋摇的跟拨浪鼓似的:“不行不行,我必须把您给伺候好喽。”

Qing Chen also shook his head and said, “No one’s personality is more noble than anyone. You don’t have to use the word “waiting”.”

庆尘也摇头说道:“谁的人格也不比谁高贵,你不必用伺候这种词语。”

At this time, Lu Guangyi said flatteringly: “Don’t you, don’t hesitate to call me in the future, you will treat me as your dog, the one that licks your feet!”

此时路广义谄媚的说道:“别啊,您以后尽管使唤我,您就当我是您的舔狗,舔脚的那种!”

Qing Chen was speechless, what kind of person would say such bottomless words: “Then what if I have athlete’s foot?”

庆尘无语了,到底是什么样的人才会说出这种毫无底线的话:“那我要是有脚气呢?”

Lu Guangyi said without embarrassment: “Then I can lick it for you!”

路广义一点也不害臊的说道:“那我能给您舔好!”

Qing Chen was silent for a while: “…nice.”

庆尘沉默了半晌:“……牛逼。”

It’s because he is very restrained not to talk nonsense, and can’t help but sigh.

饶是他非常克制着自己不要乱说话,也忍不住感慨了.

Qing Chen was a little confused now. It was obvious that his body and consciousness had passed through together, so why was there such a weird relationship in the past?

庆尘现在都有点懵了,自己这明明是身体、意识一起穿越过来的,为何会有如此诡异的过往人际关系?

In other words, in the eyes of people in this world, have you really lived in this world for so many years?

也就是说,在这个世界的人们眼里,自己真的在这个世界生活了那么多年?

Lu Guangyi saw that Qingchen did not speak, so he whispered: “This morning I still wondered why you didn’t come to me the first time. As a result, you plan to approach Li Shutong as a newcomer. It’s too smart. In this prison No. 18 In the fortress, if we can get Li Shutong’s help, our plan will go smoother.”

路广义见庆尘不说话,便低声说道:“今天早上我还在想您为何没有第一时间来找我,结果您是打算以新人身份去接近李叔同,太高明了。在这18号监狱堡垒里,如果能够得到李叔同的帮助,我们的计划会更加顺利。”

Qing Chen: “…”

庆尘:“……”

what’s the plan.

什么计划。

what are you saying.

你在说什么。

Can you make it clearer? !

能不能说清楚一点?!

Lu Guangyi continued as if talking to himself: “I have been here for more than three months, and I have gathered a group of people who can use it for you. Don’t worry, they will not lose the chain.”

路广义像是自言自语似的继续说道:“我这边进来已经三个多月了,并为您收拢了一批可以用的人,您放心,他们不会掉链子的。

The young people are chatting.

青年说话叽叽喳喳的。

Qing Chen felt that this broad sense seemed a bit ridiculous, but he just listened silently, and didn’t know how to respond.

庆尘感觉这路广义似乎有点话痨,而他只是默默的听着,也不知道该作何回应。

It’s like when you play “Who’s Undercover”, you have to take a blank card. You have to wait for everyone to finish speaking before you can speak. Otherwise, the entries taken by others are “urine”. You are the first to speak and say that you can drink. There will be big problems.

这就像玩“谁是卧底”时你拿了一张空白牌,得等大家发完言了才能说话,不然别人拿的词条都是“尿”,你第一个发言说能喝,这会出大问题的。

He searched in his mind and found that at breakfast, Lu Guangyi surrounded hundreds of people around him, each of whom was equipped with mechanical limbs.

他在脑海里搜索了一下,发现早饭的时候,路广义身旁就若有若无的围绕了上百人,其中每个人都装载了机械肢体。

It seems that these people are the “men” after Lu Guangyi came in.

看来,这些人就是路广义进来后收编的“手下”了。

Lu Guangyi saw that Qingchen still did not speak, so he asked again in a low voice: “However, you have to be careful with Li Shutong. Getting along with this kind of person is like trying to get a tiger’s skin. Maybe it will make us passive… Sorry, I talk too much. Up.”

路广义见庆尘仍旧不说话,于是再次低声问道:“不过,您也要小心李叔同,与这种人相处就像是与虎谋皮,搞不好会让我们陷入被动的……抱歉,我多嘴了。”

At this time, Qing Chen realized that the Li Shutong the other party was talking about was probably the middle-aged man.

时候庆尘意识到,对方说的李叔同,恐怕就是那位中年男人了。

When Lu Guangyi saw that he came in, he immediately went to Li Shutong to play chess, but he mistakenly thought he came with a mission.

路广义见自己一进来就立马去找李叔同下棋,结果错以为自己是带着使命来的。

However, I approached Li Shutong not for a shit plan, but to survive.

不过自己接近李叔同,可不是为了什么狗屁计划,而是为了活命。

“What instructions did you bring in this time?” Lu Guangyi asked suddenly.

“您这次带了什么指示进来?”路广义忽然问道。

Qing Chen slowly turned his head to look at the young man: “A lama came to the south.”

庆尘缓缓转头看着青年:“打南边来了个喇嘛。”

youth:”???”

青年:“???”

Qing Chen ignored him and turned away, leaving Lu Guangyi staying in place and said in a daze:

庆尘没再理会他转身就走,只留下路广义呆在原地怔然道:

“A lama came to the south? What lama?”

“打南边来了个喇嘛?什么喇嘛?”
