• Akiko: Talking Elbows

Volume Twelfth.return

Hearing this, Ye Wan, who was standing by the side, dispersed the crowd of onlookers, allowing the two to talk with peace of mind.

一旁伫立的叶晚听此话便驱散了旁观的人群,让两人安心交谈。

“Is it the reward for winning the endgame just now? Yes,” Li Shutong replied.

“算是刚才赢下残局的奖励?可以,”李叔同回答道。

“Did you play the harmonica just now?” Qing Chen asked.

“刚才的口琴声是你吹的吗?”庆尘问道。

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?

叶晚和林小笑明显愣了一下,他们还以为庆尘要借着赢棋的机会问什么呢,结果竟然只是问这支曲子?

The tune is very nice, and it hasn’t been circulated outside, but it won’t let Qing Chen waste such an important opportunity.

曲子很好听,也没有在外面流传过,但也不至于让庆尘浪费这么重要的机会吧。

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?”

李叔同笑意盈盈的抬头说道:“是我,怎么了,第一次听到这个旋律吗?”

Qing Chen thought for a while and said, “It sounds very nice.”

庆尘想了想说道:“很好听。”

“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.”

“嗯,”李叔同见人群散去才点点头回答:“他是我们组织创始人谱的曲,词也是他作的。”

Qing Chen was stunned for a long time and couldn’t speak. He wanted to say: I guess your founder may be an earthling!

庆尘怔然了半天都说不出话来,他很想说:我猜你们那位创始人,可能是地球人!

And the founder seems to be a bit shameless, carrying the songs as his own work.

而且这位创始人好像也有点不要脸啊,搬运歌曲竟当成自己的作品。

Wait, how long has Uncle Li and their organization been founded, and I don’t know when the traversing predecessor wore it?

等等,李叔同他们这个组织创立多久了,也不知道那位穿越的前辈是什么时候穿的?

Qing Chen asked again: “Can you sing it to me completely? I want to hear it.”

庆尘再问:“您能完整的给我唱一遍吗?我想听。”

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.”

李叔同说道:“可以,不过这首曲子的歌词并不是太完整,漫长的时光里,总会有东西丢在那条长河中。”

“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.

“没事,我只是听听,”庆尘说道,他想确认,这首歌的歌词是否也跟地球一样。

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……”

李叔同将桌上的大猫抱进怀里,然后轻声唱道:“长亭外,古道边,芳草碧连天,晚风拂柳笛声残,夕阳山外山。天之涯,地之角,离别有时多……”

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.”

李叔同唱完后笑道:“离别有时多这句歌词是后人补上的,据说当初并不是这样,只不过不管怎么补,好像都差了点意思。

After standing there for a long time, Qing Chen suddenly said, “How about changing to a confidant?”

庆尘伫立良久后突然说道:“换成知交半零落怎么样?”

“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.

“知交半零落?”李叔同愣了一下。

Farewell and farewell, people are like the sunset, and confidants are far away.

不知道为何,他总觉得只有这五个字才配的上这首歌。

When we were young, we drank happily and our lives were as strong as summer.

送别送别,人如夕阳余晖,知己远在天涯。

But I don’t know which farewell was the last time, and never saw each other again.

彼此年少时开怀畅饮,生命浓烈如盛夏。

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.

可不知哪一次送别便是最后一面,从此不再相见。

After beckoning, he turned and left.

李叔同仿佛坐在这监狱里看到了橙红色的太阳正在落入地平线,而好友正在远方跟他招手。

“Thank you,” Li Shutong said, “This sentence is really good, just like the original lyrics of this song should be this sentence.”

“谢谢,”李叔同说道:“这句补的真好,就像是这首歌原本的歌词就应该是这句一样。”

“You’re welcome,” Qing Chen accepted the compliment cheeky.

“不客气,”庆尘厚着脸皮接下了这句夸奖。

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.”

李叔同有些向往的说道:“有时候真的很惊叹,我们那位创始人真是惊才绝艳之人,据说当年他所做的词曲多如牛毛,每一首都是传世经典,只不过在上一个纪元终结的时候都流失了,只剩下这么一首曲子。”

“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.

“只剩一首了吗?那还真是可惜了,”庆尘心说,李叔同直接提及上一个纪元,恐怕那位穿越者前辈应该是很久很久以前穿越过来的吧。

The epoch is not a unit of time, but the beginning of a new civilization.

纪元并不是一个时间单位,而是一个新文明的开端。

It seems that the humans here have gone through the iteration of an epoch, but they just don’t know what happened.

看样子,这里的人类曾经历过一个纪元的迭代,只是不知道发生了什么。

“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.

“还有一首是只知道名字,但根本不知道旋律,前辈们翻找过很多遗址,都没能找到谱子,”李叔同摇头道。

Qing Chen hesitated for two seconds, then tentatively asked: “What’s the name of that song?”

庆尘迟疑了两秒,然后试探着问道:“那首曲子叫什么名字?”

Li Shutong glanced at him and said, “Canon.”

李叔同看了他一眼说道:“卡农。”

If Qing Chen was still skeptical of the founder’s identity as a traveler before, then this is completely affirmative.

如果说之前庆尘对这位创始人的穿越者身份还持怀疑态度,那么这下就完全肯定了。

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.

不过卡农其实是一种音乐体裁、技法,许多交响作品里都会用《卡农》的技巧部分,比如贝多芬的《命运交响曲》、巴赫的《五首卡农变奏曲》。

But if the other party really copied it from the earth, then the melody should be Pachelbel’s “Canon in D major”.

但如果对方真是从地球照搬的话,那旋律应该就是帕赫贝尔的《D大调卡农》了。

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?

庆尘在想,以李叔同对那位创始人的态度,自己如果将卡农的谱子送给他,是否能换来超凡脱俗的那条路?

He wasn’t sure, he couldn’t even explain where he got this score.

他不确定,他甚至没法解释自己是从哪里得到这个谱子的。

Wait a minute, Qing Chen hasn’t remembered Canon’s score now, so he should wait until he returns to weigh it carefully.

再等等吧,现在庆尘也没记过卡农的谱子,还是等回归之后再细细权衡。

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.

交谈结束,庆尘直接穿过人群去了阅读区,他现在非常需要补觉,哪怕饭都不吃了也要睡一觉再说。

Only by maintaining a full mental state can he analyze the situation around him at any time.

只有保持饱满的精神状态,他才能够随时分析身边的情况。

However, not long after he was lying on the table in the reading area, Lu Guangyi cautiously followed.

可是,他才刚趴在阅读区的桌子上不久,路广义便小心翼翼的跟了过来。

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.

路广义想要过来跟庆尘搭话,可有怕被人看见,于是在阅读区外面急的抓耳挠腮。

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.”

庆尘面无表情的抬头看向对方:“不用这么小心,李叔同已经知道你我的关系了。不过不用担心,他好像并不介意。还有,你先忙你的去,不要打扰我。”

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.

18号监狱里到处都是监控,囚犯们给新人举行欢迎仪式都要躲到牢房里去,所以在阅读区睡觉是安全的。

In fact, Qing Chen really wanted to talk to Lu Guangyi to figure out what Qing’s plans were.

庆尘其实很想跟路广义套套话,搞清楚庆氏有什么计划。

But seeing that the return was imminent, he didn’t want to be out of the question.

但眼瞅着回归在即,他不想节外生枝了。

Therefore, it is better to send Lu Guangyi away first, and then consider how to talk after he returns.

所以先把路广义打发走,待到他回归之后再考虑如何套话比较好。

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.”

然而路广义并没有离开,而是在一旁小声嘀咕道:“老板,我想了半天也不知道该叫您什么好,还是叫老板最顺口。”

“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!”

“估计您也听庆言提起过我,我呢从小就命苦,肾脏都被我爹拿去跟有钱人换钱了,给我换了一副仿生的来代替,你说爹妈都不心疼我,还有谁疼我呢?后来我听庆言说,这次是您点名让我进来探路,说是看中了我的能力,我高兴坏了!您放心,我路广义这次绝对为您赴汤蹈火在所不辞,就算为您去死都行!”

“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…”

“不过我死前还有个遗憾,您也知道我也没能上几年学,但我打小就羡慕那些有文化的人……”

Qing Chen finally couldn’t help it: “What are you trying to say?”

庆尘终于忍不住了:“你到底想说什么啊?”

Lu Guangyi: “Can you teach me to play chess?”

路广义:“您能不能教我下象棋啊?”

“Why do you want to learn to play chess?” Qing Chen was stunned.

“为什么想学下棋?”庆尘愣了一下。

“Because you are handsome!” Lu Guangyi said: “Boss, even characters like Li Shutong have become his own defeated men. Isn’t it handsome?”

“因为帅啊!”路广义说道:“老板,连李叔同那样的人物都成为自己的手下败将,难道不帅吗?”

“Is it a good face to win a game or two in chess?” Qing Chen shook his head.

“下棋赢一两局就很有面子了吗?”庆尘摇摇头。

“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.

“当然了,打又打不过他,能下棋赢他一下也很有面子啊!”路广义理所当然的说道。

This touched Qing Chen. Listening to Lu Guangyi’s meaning, Li Shutong’s combat effectiveness seems very strong?

这倒是触动了庆尘一下,听路广义的意思,李叔同的战斗力似乎很强?

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.”

只听路广义继续说道:“我是真没想到老板您进来以后能跟李叔同结识,还能相处的如此融洽。以他在这18号监狱里的地位,兴许就知道咱们要找的东西(防和谐)藏在哪里。而且,万一您能得到他的传承,这影子之争恐怕就稳当了。”

The amount of information in this sentence is huge, and it finally made Qing Chen understand what his goal here is…find something.

这句话里的信息量巨大,也总算让庆尘明白自己到这里的目标是什么了……找一件东西。

Moreover, he is involved in a competition.

而且,自己正卷入一场角逐之中。

But Qing Chen still didn’t know what Li Shutong’s inheritance was, only that it was very important.

只不过庆尘依然不知道李叔同的传承是什么,只知道它非常重要。

Qing Chen thought for a while and said, “Okay, I will teach you to play chess, can you stay away from me now.”

庆尘想了想说道:“好,我教你下象棋,你现在离我远点行吗。”

“Good, good,” Lu Guangyi ran to the entertainment area as soon as he slipped a cigarette.

“好勒好嘞,”路广义一溜烟就跑到娱乐区那边了。

At night, the countdown is 00:05:00.

夜晚,倒计时00:05:00.

Qing Chen sat on the cold bed, quietly watching the white countdown on his arm.

庆尘坐在冰冷的床上,静静的看着手臂上的白色倒计时。

In the countdown, the gears slowly turned, and only the last five minutes were left before the return.

那倒计时里齿轮缓缓转动着,距离回归只剩下最后五分钟了。

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.

他也不确定自己还会不会回来这里,两天时间对于他来说就像是一场梦,认识了几个人,也见识了一个不同的世界。

The special nature of Lin Xiaoxiao and Li Shutong finally made him look forward to this world.

林小笑与李叔同的特殊,终于让他对这个世界产生了期待。

It seems that there is a new world, opening the door for myself.

像是有一个新世界,为自己打开了大门。

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.

庆尘想了想,然后用牙刷尾端在木头床板上,用力刻下“来过”两字的凹痕。

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.

然后他又在自己手臂上拧出了一个青紫色的印子,想要看看如果自己带着伤返回地球会有什么变化。
