Volume Ten.Use fire

Lin Xiaoxiao was the one who created the nightmare for Qing Chen.

林小笑就是给庆尘制造梦魇的人。

This world has never been only a mechanical civilization, it has continued to this day, and there have always been more mysterious civilizations.

这个世界也从来都不是只有机械文明,它延续至今,一直都还有更加神秘的文明存在。

And tonight, Lin Xiaoxiao created this nightmare, completely following the instructions of Li Shutong’s boss, wanting to try what kind of person Qing Chen really is.

而今晚,林小笑制造这个梦魇,完全是听了李叔同老板的指令,想要试试庆尘到底是个什么样的人。

Lin Xiaoxiao wanted to try Qing Chen’s courage and ability to withstand pressure at the present nightmare called “The Dilemma of Two Ghosts”, but he did not expect that Qing Chen’s reaction seemed to be no longer judged by his courage and ability to withstand pressure.

当下这个名叫“双鬼困境”的梦魇,林小笑是想试一下庆尘的胆识与抗压能力,结果他没想到,庆尘的反应似乎已经不能用胆识和抗压能力来评判了。

He suddenly realized that when the crisis came, this young man would face it with the most ferocious and calm attitude.

他忽然意识到,这个少年在危机降临时,一定会用最凶狠且最冷静的态度去面对。

At this moment, Qing Chen didn’t tremble at all, nor did he have the blood and courage of ordinary people when they rose up to resist. There were only two characters condensed on his body, calm.

此时此刻的庆尘没有丝毫颤抖,也没有普通人奋起反抗时的血勇之色,身上所凝聚的只有二字,冷静。

But Lin Xiaoxiao couldn’t understand. He was clearly preventing the other party from picking up the dagger, why the other party suddenly broke away from the shackles of the nightmare.

可是林小笑想不明白,他明明在阻止对方拿起匕首来着,为何对方突然脱离了梦魇的束缚。

You know, this is his home court for Lin Xiaoxiao.

要知道,这里可是他林小笑的主场啊。

At this time, Qing Chen already knew that he didn’t need to go upstairs to kill. He said to the empty living room: “Lin Xiaoxiao?”

这时,庆尘已经知道自己不用去楼上杀人了,他对着空旷的客厅说道:“林小笑?”

Before the nightmare was over, Lin Xiaoxiao walked downstairs wearing a police uniform with a smile: “It’s weird. You can still stay awake in this nightmare. The boss’s vision is correct. You do have a lot of extraordinary things. “

梦魇未散,林小笑穿着警察制服从楼上笑眯眯的走了下来:“奇了怪了,你在这梦魇里竟然还能保持清醒,老板的眼光没错,你确实有许多过人之处。”

“Why? I didn’t seem to offend you,” Qing Chen puzzled.

“为什么?我好像并没有冒犯到你,”庆尘不解。

“Because the boss values ​​you, I have to know what kind of person you are, but now it seems that nightmare may have no effect on you,” Lin Xiaoxiao explained while sitting on the last step of the stairs.

“因为老板看重你,所以我得知道你到底是个什么样的人,不过现在看来,梦魇可能对你没什么作用了,”林小笑坐在楼梯的最后一阶解释道。

“This is your special ability?” Qing Chen asked.

“这是你的特殊能力?”庆尘问道。

“Yes,” Lin Xiao smiled and shrugged: “It’s like you have a memorable experience, I also have my abilities, there is nothing to hide.”

“是的,”林小笑耸了耸肩膀:“就像是你有过目不忘一样,我也有我的能力,这倒没什么好隐瞒的。”

For a moment, Qing Chen felt that this world became more mysterious in his mind.

庆尘一时间觉得,这个世界在他的脑海中越发神秘起来。

The world where mechanics and mystics coexist did not make him feel scared, but instead made him more and more interested.

机械学与神秘学共存的世界并没有让他感受到害怕,反而让他越来越感兴趣。

And all this happening right now may be the reason why Li Shu and his peers are detached in this prison.

而当下发生的这一切,可能就是李叔同等人在这座监狱里地位超然的原因。

Qing Chen wanted to explore all this, and even more wanted to have it.

庆尘想要探索这一切,更想要拥有。

Lin Xiaoxiao saw that Qing Chen was silent, and asked, “Are you from the Qing Group?”

林小笑见庆尘思索不语,便主动问道:“你是庆氏集团的人吗?”

Qing Chen didn’t answer this question, but instead asked: “I was given special treatment because of my guesswork about my identity? Why does the robotic prison guard ignore you?”

庆尘没有回答这个问题,而是反过来发问:“是因为对我身份的猜测,才给我特殊待遇?为什么机器狱警不管你们?”

“Naturally because the boss is special enough, the robotic prison guards don’t care about us,” Lin Xiaoxiao said: “You don’t need to change the subject, let’s get back to your identity. At night, I found the surveillance video of you talking with Lu Guangyi. He is the Qing family. Those who arranged to come in were eager to get in touch with you, so I am pretty sure you are from the Qing Group.”

“自然是因为老板足够特殊,机器狱警才不管我们,”林小笑说道:“你不用转移话题,说回你的身份吧,晚上我找到了你和路广义交谈的监控视频,他是庆氏安排进来的,又急于和你取得联系,所以我很确定你就是庆氏集团的人。”

Qing’s Group… Qing Chen memorized these four words.

庆氏集团……庆尘记下了这四个字。

Instead, he relaxed now.

他这时反而放松了下来。

The opponent is in this prison with hands and eyes open to the sky, and compared to him, he is like a kid who has just learned to walk.

对方在这监狱里手眼通天,自己与之相比就像是个刚学会走路的小孩子一样。

In that case, there is no need to be too nervous.

既然如此,那也就不用太紧张了。

Because the other party is willing to continue contact after understanding his own situation, it means that the other party also has demands.

因为,对方摸清楚自己情况以后还愿意继续接触,那就说明对方也有诉求。

Sitting on the tattered sofa, Qing Chen asked in a condensed voice, “Since you are sure that I am a member of the Qing Group, why do you still stretch out an olive branch?”

庆尘坐在破烂的沙发上,凝声问道:“既然你们笃定我是庆氏集团的人,为何还要伸出橄榄枝?”

“Our organization doesn’t talk about backgrounds. Anyone can join as long as they are like-minded,” Lin Xiaoxiao said with a smile: “Of course, you have to be qualified.”

“我们组织又不讲出身,只要志同道合,谁都可以加入,”林小笑笑眯眯的说道:“当然,得够格才行。”

Qing Chen was taken aback. The other party was doing all this to assess whether he was qualified to join?

庆尘怔了一下,对方做这一切,其实是在考核自己是否够格加入?

He also thought that the other party wanted to cooperate with the forces behind him.

他还以为对方是想要和自己背后的势力合作。

“You want to recruit me?” Qing Chen asked in confusion.

“你们要招揽我?”庆尘疑惑道。

“I didn’t say that you are qualified now. To be honest, I don’t think you and us are the same,” Lin Xiao said with a smile: “But the boss said, there must be all kinds of people in an organization, a visionary eagle. The tiger in Zhenshan, the wolf who is good at fighting, everyone has a purpose for everyone.”

“我也没说你现在就够格了,说实话我觉得你和我们并不是一路人,”林小笑说道:“但老板说了,一个组织里什么样的人都得有,远见的鹰,镇山的虎,善战的狼,每个人有每个人的用处。”

“Then what kind of role are you in your organization?” Qing Chen asked.

“那你在你们组织里是什么样的角色?”庆尘问道。

Lin Xiaoxiao didn’t want to answer, and immediately smiled pretendingly: “Guess?”

林小笑不想回答,当即故作神秘一笑:“你猜?”

Qing Chen thought for a while and said, “The donkey of the production team?”

庆尘想了想说道:“生产队的驴?”

Lin Xiaoxiao: “???”

林小笑:“???”

What the hell?

什么玩意?

Better to paddling fish!

还不如划水的鱼!

At this moment, Lin Xiaoxiao suddenly discovered that the other party had completely relaxed when facing this unknown nightmare and unknown self.

此刻林小笑赫然发现,对方在面对这未知的梦魇、未知的自己时,竟已完全放松下来,游刃有余。

This boy is only 17 years old.

这少年才17岁。

Lin Xiaoxiao asked curiously: “The Qing family arranged for Lu Guangyi to come in for such a big battle, and then arranged for you to come in. What are you going to do? Or, what are you looking for?”

林小笑好奇道:“庆氏安排路广义进来搞了这么大阵仗,然后又安排你进来,你们到底想要做什么?或者说,想要找什么?”

Qing Chen was thinking in his heart, I want to say that I don’t know what I am doing in here, you definitely don’t believe it…

庆尘心里在想,我要说我也不知道自己进来干什么,你肯定是不信的……

This matter… You have to ask Lu Guangyi…

这事……你得问路广义啊……

To tell the truth, Qing Chen also secretly wondered at this moment, should he find a way to figure out the cause and effect in a broad sense?

说实话,庆尘这会儿也暗自思忖,自己是不是该找路广义弄清楚前因后果?

It’s just that he has a headache when he thinks of Lu Guangyi’s words chatting and licking a dog.

只不过想到路广义那话唠加舔狗的模样,他又有点头疼。

“It doesn’t matter if you don’t want to say it, I’ll figure it out sooner or later,” Lin Xiaoxiao said: “Okay, rest early. You will have to play chess with your boss tomorrow morning.”

“不想说也没关系,我迟早会弄明白的,”林小笑说道:“行了,早点休息吧,明天早上你还得陪老板下棋呢。”

As soon as the voice fell, Qing Chen’s eyes went dark and he got out of the nightmare. He slowly got up from the cell floor, lying on the cold bed not knowing what he was thinking.

话音刚落,庆尘眼睛一黑便脱离了梦魇,他从牢房地板上缓缓爬起,躺在冰冷的床上不知道想着什么。

He looked at the heavy alloy gate, outside the door was a cold and mysterious world.

他看着那扇厚重的合金闸门,门外是冰冷又神秘的世界。

The countdown to return is 20:59:21.

回归倒计时20:59:21。

The countdown to return is 20:59:20.

回归倒计时20:59:20。

In the morning, Uncle Li sat at the dining table as usual, watching the endgame quietly.

清晨,李叔同如往常那样坐在餐桌旁,静静的看着一副残局。

At this time, it was not time for the prisoners to leave the prison, and the entire prison was quiet.

此时还没到囚犯们出监舍的时间,整个监狱都静悄悄的。

Lin Xiaoxiao squatted on a chair and said, “Boss, I tried to test him with the twin ghost dilemma last night. Guess what, he just needs to lift the knife and kill one first… This is too killing.”

林小笑蹲在椅子上说道:“老板,我昨天晚上用双鬼困境试探他来着,您猜怎么着,他直接就要提刀先杀一个……这杀性也太重了吧。”

Ye Wan frowned: “Speaking of what allows you to stop, ordinary people can easily collapse when they enter the twin ghost dilemma.”

叶晚皱眉:“说了让你适可而止的,普通人进双鬼困境很容易崩溃的。”

“Don’t worry,” Lin Xiaoxiao said in a huff: “I didn’t proceed at all, and you didn’t know that that kid could escape from my control in the nightmare.”

“放心,”林小笑没好气道:“我压根就没进行下去,而且你不知道,那小子竟然能在梦魇里脱离我的掌控。”

“Oh?” Li Shutong raised his head: “I confirm that he is just an ordinary person. It is a bit special that an ordinary person can escape your control in the nightmare.”

“哦?”李叔同抬起头来:“我确认他只是个普通人而已,一个普通人能在梦魇里脱离你的掌控,这倒有点特殊了。”

Now, even the big cat with closed eyes on the table looked at Lin Xiaoxiao strangely.

这下,就连桌上闭目养神的大猫都奇怪的看了林小笑一眼.

Ye Wan asked, “How did he do it?”

叶晚问道:“他是怎么做到的?”

“I don’t know,” Lin Xiaoxiao shook his head.

“不清楚,”林小笑摇头。

“Maybe his own will is strong enough,” Li Shutong did not delve into the matter, and Qing Chen was not the only one who was able to break free from the shackles of the nightmare.

“可能是自身意志足够强大吧,”李叔同没有深究此事,能够挣脱梦魇束缚的,也不止庆尘一人。

Lin Xiaoxiao squatted and said, “Boss, I would advise you to think about it carefully. Qing Chen is a very murderous kid and he is not the same as us.”

林小笑蹲着说道:“老板,我还是劝你慎重考虑一下吧,庆尘这小子杀性很重,跟我们不是一路人。”

Li Shutong suddenly laughed: “We have died for this cause so many colleagues, even you and I are trapped in this prison. So you have to understand, laugh, we can’t deal with the darkness with gentleness, we have to use fire.”

李叔同忽然笑了起来:“我们为了这份事业死了那么多同僚,连你我三人都被困在这座监狱里。所以你要明白啊小笑,我们不能用温柔去应对黑暗,要用火。”

As he said, Li Shutong’s expression was a little sad: “Ye Wan, bring me the harmonica.”

说着,李叔同的神色竟是有些黯然了:“叶晚,把口琴给我拿过来。”

It was about to start, and the jail gradually became noisy, and the noise of the steel beasts in the alloy gate was like boiling water in a hot pot gradually boiling.

快要开饭了,监狱里渐渐喧哗起来,钢铁野兽们在合金闸门里吵闹的声响,犹如热锅里的开水渐渐沸腾。

But a melodious harmonica suddenly sounded on the prison square, refreshing.

可是监狱的广场上面忽然响起悠扬的口琴声,沁人心脾。

The sound of the prisoners tapping the door of the cell gradually stopped, and everyone listened quietly, as if someone had showered into the dry wasteland with a clear spring.

囚犯们拍打牢房门的声音渐渐停歇了,所有人都静静的听着,像是有人用清泉淋入了干涸的荒原。
