- Akiko: Talking Elbows
Hearing this, Ye Wan, who was standing by the side, dispersed the crowd of onlookers, allowing the two to talk with peace of mind.
“Is it the reward for winning the endgame just now? Yes,” Li Shutong replied.
“Did you play the harmonica just now?” Qing Chen asked.
Ye Wan and Lin Xiaoxiao were visibly stunned. They thought that what Qing Chen would ask to take advantage of the opportunity to win chess, they turned out to only ask about this piece of music?
The tune is very nice, and it hasn’t been circulated outside, but it won’t let Qing Chen waste such an important opportunity.
Li Shutong raised his head with a smile and said, “It’s me, what’s wrong, is this the first time I hear this melody?”
Qing Chen thought for a while and said, “It sounds very nice.”
“Well,” Li Shutong nodded and replied when the crowd dispersed, “He is the music composed by the founder of our organization, and he also wrote the lyrics.”
Qing Chen was stunned for a long time and couldn’t speak. He wanted to say: I guess your founder may be an earthling!
And the founder seems to be a bit shameless, carrying the songs as his own work.
Wait, how long has Uncle Li and their organization been founded, and I don’t know when the traversing predecessor wore it?
Qing Chen asked again: “Can you sing it to me completely? I want to hear it.”
Li Shutong said: “Yes, but the lyrics of this song are not too complete. In a long time, there will always be things lost in that long river.”
“It’s okay, I’m just listening,” Qing Chen said, and he wanted to confirm whether the lyrics of this song are the same as those of the earth.
Li Shutong took the big cat on the table into his arms, and then sang softly: “Outside the long pavilion, on the edge of the ancient road, the sky is full of green grass, the evening breeze is blowing the willow flute, and the setting sun is outside the mountains. The end of the sky, the corner of the earth, a time for parting many……”
Li Shutong smiled after singing: “The lyrics of parting is sometimes added by later generations. It is said that this was not the case at the beginning, but no matter how you make up, it seems to be almost meaningless.”
After standing there for a long time, Qing Chen suddenly said, “How about changing to a confidant?”
“Small friends?” Li Shutong was taken aback for a moment.I don’t know why, he always feels that only these five words are worthy of this song.
Farewell and farewell, people are like the sunset, and confidants are far away.
When we were young, we drank happily and our lives were as strong as summer.
But I don’t know which farewell was the last time, and never saw each other again.
Li Shutong seemed to be sitting in this prison and saw the orange-red sun falling into the horizon, and his friend was beckoning to him in the distance.
After beckoning, he turned and left.
“Thank you,” Li Shutong said, “This sentence is really good, just like the original lyrics of this song should be this sentence.”
“You’re welcome,” Qing Chen accepted the compliment cheeky.
Li Shutong said with some yearning: “Sometimes I am really amazed. Our founder is really amazing. It is said that he did a lot of lyrics and music back then. Each capital is a classic handed down, but at the end of the last era. It’s all lost at the time, and there is only one tune left.”
“Is there only one left? That’s really a pity,” Qing Chenxin said, and Li Shutong directly mentioned the previous era. I’m afraid that senior traverser should have crossed over a long, long time ago.
The epoch is not a unit of time, but the beginning of a new civilization.
It seems that the humans here have gone through the iteration of an epoch, but they just don’t know what happened.
“There is another song that only knows the name, but doesn’t know the melody at all. The predecessors have searched many ruins, but have not been able to find the score,” Li Shutong shook his head.
Qing Chen hesitated for two seconds, then tentatively asked: “What’s the name of that song?”
Li Shutong glanced at him and said, “Canon.”
If Qing Chen was still skeptical of the founder’s identity as a traveler before, then this is completely affirmative.
But Canon is actually a musical genre and technique. Many symphonic works use the technical part of Canon, such as Beethoven’s Symphony of Destiny and Bach’s Five Canon Variations.
But if the other party really copied it from the earth, then the melody should be Pachelbel’s “Canon in D major”.
Qing Chen wondered, with Li Shutong’s attitude towards the founder, if he gave him Canon’s score, would he be able to exchange for the otherworldly path?
He wasn’t sure, he couldn’t even explain where he got this score.
Wait a minute, Qing Chen hasn’t remembered Canon’s score now, so he should wait until he returns to weigh it carefully.
At the end of the conversation, Qing Chen went straight through the crowd to the reading area. He needed a good night’s sleep now, even if he didn’t eat food, he would have to sleep.
Only by maintaining a full mental state can he analyze the situation around him at any time.
However, not long after he was lying on the table in the reading area, Lu Guangyi cautiously followed.
Lu Guangyi wanted to come over to talk to Qing Chen, but he was afraid of being seen, so he scratched his head and his head anxiously outside the reading area.
Qing Chen looked up at the other person blankly: “Don’t be so careful, Shutong Li already knows the relationship between you and me. But don’t worry, he doesn’t seem to mind. Also, you go ahead and don’t disturb me.”
There are surveillance everywhere in the No. 18 prison. The prisoners must hide in the cell during the welcome ceremony for the newcomers, so it is safe to sleep in the reading area.
In fact, Qing Chen really wanted to talk to Lu Guangyi to figure out what Qing’s plans were.
But seeing that the return was imminent, he didn’t want to be out of the question.
Therefore, it is better to send Lu Guangyi away first, and then consider how to talk after he returns.
However, Lu Guangyi did not leave, but whispered to the side: “Boss, I have been thinking about it for a long time and I don’t know what to call you, or the best thing to call the boss.”
“I guess you have heard Qingyan mention me. I have been suffering since I was a child. My father took my kidneys to exchange money with rich people. I replaced me with a bionic instead. You said my parents don’t feel bad. I, who else loves me? Later, I heard Qingyan say that this time you asked me to come in to find the way, saying that I had a fancy to my ability. I was so happy! Don’t worry, my Lu Guangyi will definitely do it this time. You can go through fire and water, even if you die for you!”
“But I still have a regret before I die. You also know that I haven’t been able to go to school for a few years, but I envy those educated people when I was young…”
Qing Chen finally couldn’t help it: “What are you trying to say?”
Lu Guangyi: “Can you teach me to play chess?”
“Why do you want to learn to play chess?” Qing Chen was stunned.
“Because you are handsome!” Lu Guangyi said: “Boss, even characters like Li Shutong have become his own defeated men. Isn’t it handsome?”
“Is it a good face to win a game or two in chess?” Qing Chen shook his head.
“Of course, I can’t beat him again, and it’s a lot of face to be able to beat him in chess!” Lu Guangyi said of course.
This touched Qing Chen. Listening to Lu Guangyi’s meaning, Li Shutong’s combat effectiveness seems very strong?
Just listen to Lu Guangyi continuing: “I really didn’t expect the boss to get acquainted with Li Shutong after you came in, and you can get along so well. With his position in the 18th prison, maybe you know what we are looking for (defense Harmony) where is it hidden. And, if you can get his inheritance, this shadow fight may be safe.”
The amount of information in this sentence is huge, and it finally made Qing Chen understand what his goal here is…find something.
Moreover, he is involved in a competition.
But Qing Chen still didn’t know what Li Shutong’s inheritance was, only that it was very important.
Qing Chen thought for a while and said, “Okay, I will teach you to play chess, can you stay away from me now.”
“Good, good,” Lu Guangyi ran to the entertainment area as soon as he slipped a cigarette.
At night, the countdown is 00:05:00.
Qing Chen sat on the cold bed, quietly watching the white countdown on his arm.
In the countdown, the gears slowly turned, and only the last five minutes were left before the return.
He wasn’t sure whether he would come back or not. Two days was like a dream for him. He met a few people and saw a different world.
The special nature of Lin Xiaoxiao and Li Shutong finally made him look forward to this world.
It seems that there is a new world, opening the door for myself.
Qing Chen thought for a while, then used the end of the toothbrush to carve the dent of the word “Come” on the wooden bedboard.
Then he twisted out a blue-purple mark on his arm, wanting to see what would happen if he returned to Earth with his injuries.
The world was broken again, and the familiar darkness finally came.
