• Akiko: Talking Elbows

Volume thirteenth. Someone

Compared with the panic before the last crossing, Qing Chen has calmed down a lot this time.

相比上一次穿越前的慌张,这一次庆尘已经平静了许多。

He waited for the world to be broken and reorganized, as if he was waiting for a dream to wake up.

他等待着世界破碎后重组,就像是在等待着一场梦醒。

In the cramped and cramped small bedroom, Qing Chen was still sitting on the side of the bed in the posture before crossing. It was night outside, and the boning knife he was holding… actually still in his hand.

逼仄狭窄的小卧室里,庆尘依然以自己穿越前的姿势坐在床边,屋外是夜晚,而他原本拿着的剔骨刀……竟然还在手上。

Everything seems to have never happened.

一切,都仿佛未曾发生过。

Qing Chen frowned, he took out the phone in his pocket and glanced at Time.

庆尘皱眉,他掏出兜里的手机看了一眼时间。

2022, September 28, 12:00:01.

2022年,9月28日,12:00:01。

One point and one second.

零点零一秒。

He clearly remembered that the date he crossed was also September 28, and the exact time was 12:00:00.

他清楚的记得,自己穿越的日期也是9月28日,准确时间是12:00:00。

In other words, he spent two days in that world, but only one second has passed here on Earth.

也就是说,他在那个世界渡过了两天,而地球这里竟然只过了一秒。

In the same way, I went back here, and when I went back, only a second passed there?

同理,自己回到这边,等到再回去时,那边也只过了一秒?

This should be the law of all traversers.

这应该是所有穿越者的规律。

I don’t know why Qing Chen breathed a sigh of relief when he thought of this place, so that he would no longer have to find a way to explain to others why he often disappeared for a while.

不知道为什么庆尘想到这里反而松了口气,这样一来他就不用再想办法跟人解释,自己为何会经常失踪一段时间了。

This is a very strange feeling of alienation, as if the world in which I am now is no longer real.

这是一种非常诡异的疏离感,仿佛自己现在所处的世界不再真实一样。

Qing Chen lowered his head and glanced at his arm. The blue-purple he had deliberately pinched was still there.

庆尘低头看了一眼手臂,自己刚刚故意捏出的青紫色还在。

The white lines on the other arm have changed, the countdown is 47:59:45.

而另一只手臂上的白色纹路已经发生变化,倒计时47:59:45.

Countdown 47:59:44.

倒计时47:59:44.

This time the countdown is 48 hours, which is two days, yes.

这次倒计时是48个小时,也就是两天时间,没错。

Only these can prove to him that everything he has experienced is true.

只有这些才能向他证明,自己所经历的一切都是真的。

He has really been to a mechanical civilization, and he has really met a man named Li Shutong who was tested once with a nightmare by a man named Lin Xiaoxiao, and he also encountered a licking dog named Lu Guangyi.

他真的去过一个机械文明,也真的见过一个叫做李叔同的人,被一个叫林小笑的人用梦魇考验了一次,还遇到了一个叫做路广义的舔狗。

There was a calm Ye Wan and a strange big cat.

那里有一个沉稳的叶晚,还有一只奇怪的大猫

While Qing Chen was thinking about it, his cell phone rang unexpectedly, an unfamiliar landline number.

正当庆尘思索的时候,他的手机铃声竟然响了起来,陌生的座机号码。

“Hello,” Qing Chen said.

“喂你好,”庆尘说道。

“Hello, this is the Wangcheng Road Police Station. That’s it. Your father was detained for gambling. Please come over,” said a female voice across the phone.

“你好,我这里是王城路派出所,是这样,你父亲聚众赌博被拘留了,麻烦你过来一趟,”电话对面一个女性声音说道。

Qing Chen was stunned for a moment, calculating the time that his gambler father should have just been caught, but he didn’t expect the police station to call him.

庆尘愣了一下,算算时间自己那位赌徒父亲应该刚被抓住没多久,没想到派出所电话这就给他打来了。

“Uh, what am I going to do?” Qing Chen asked.

“额,我去做什么?”庆尘问道。

“According to the Public Security Administration Punishment Law, he needs to be detained and paid a fine. Please come and go through the formalities,” said the lady on duty at the police station.

“根据治安管理处罚法,他需要被拘留和缴纳罚款,请你来办理一下手续,”派出所值班小姐姐说道。

“Sorry, I’m not going, please punish him severely. According to the Law on Public Security Administration Penalties, the case is severely punished by detention for more than 10 days but not more than 15 days, and a fine of more than 500 yuan and less than 3,000 yuan. He is punished, thank you,” Qing Chen said, shaking his head.

“不好意思,我不去,请你们严惩他吧。根据治安管理处罚法,情节严重的处以十日以上、十五日以下拘留,并处以五百元以上、三千元以下罚款,麻烦您给他顶格处罚,谢谢,”庆尘摇摇头说道。

The other party was also taken aback at this moment: “Aren’t you his son?”

对方这时也愣了一下:“你不是他儿子吗?”

Qing Chen replied: “I reported the case. I am not his son. I am Mr. Qing, the enthusiastic citizen.”

庆尘回答道:“案就是我报的,我不是他儿子,我是热心市民庆先生。”

Miss Duty Sister: “???”

值班小姐姐:“???”

Qing Chen hung up the phone without hesitation anymore, and his gambler father was detained for at least 10 days, which meant that he didn’t need to see the other party until he crossed the next time.

庆尘没再犹豫便直接挂了电话,自己这赌徒爹最少拘留10天,也就是说自己下次穿越之前,是不用看见对方了。

I don’t know why, Qing Chen still feels a little happy and relaxed thinking about it here.

不知道为啥,庆尘想到这里还觉得有些开心和轻松。

However, for a teenager, his father was detained and reprimanded loudly, which felt uncomfortable.

但是,对于一个少年来说,父亲被拘留,还被人大声训斥,这种感觉并不好受。

Most teenagers use their father as a role model when they are young. Once you find that your father is not dignified, a certain load-bearing wall in your heart suddenly collapses.

大部分少年在青春时都会拿自己父亲当做榜样,一旦你发现自己父亲劣迹斑斑还没有尊严的时候,自己心中的某一堵承重墙就忽然坍塌了。

Qing Chen took a deep breath and slowly lay down on the bed. He turned on the phone to read his call records and WeChat, but he did not see the news from his mother.

庆尘深吸一口气慢慢躺在床上,他打开手机看自己的通话记录和微信,也没看到母亲的消息。

For some reason, he even wanted to return to the prison earlier.

不知道为什么,某一刻他甚至更想提前回到那座监狱里去。

Even if it is an unknown and dangerous world.

即便那是一个未知而又危险的世界。

It was already more than one o’clock in the morning, and Qing Chen had no sleep.

已经凌晨一点多了,庆尘毫无睡意。

In the dim room, only the phone screen illuminates his cheeks.

昏暗的屋子里,只有手机屏幕照亮着他的脸颊。

On the screen of the phone is the Canon score he just found, and every detail has been memorized in his mind.

手机屏幕上是他刚刚搜到的卡农谱子,每一个细节都已经被他记在了脑海里。

For Li Shutong, this thing was a lifelong regret, but for Qing Chen, it was a no-brainer.

这东西对于李叔同来说是一生的遗憾,可对于庆尘来说却是得来全不费工夫。

Maybe this is the difference in different worlds, and the other party also has something that Qing Chen dreams of.

可能这就是所处不同世界的差异吧,对方身上也一样有庆尘梦寐以求的东西。

But, should I give the score to Li Shutong?

可是,自己应该把谱子给李叔同吗?

If you give it to me, how can I explain the origin of this score?

给的话,自己该如何解释这谱子的来历呢。

This matter is risky. Although Qing Chen is not afraid of taking risks, he is afraid that the risks are worthless.

这件事情是有风险的,庆尘虽然不怕冒险,但他怕自己冒险冒的不值。

Therefore, before giving the score, he must determine whether Li Shutong has this value!

所以,给谱子之前,他必须确定李叔同有没有这个价值!

In the end, he still couldn’t wait for the call and news from his mother.

最终,他还是没能等到母亲的电话与消息。

The first day of the countdown, 7:30 in the morning.

倒计时第一天,清晨7点半。

Qing Chen put on a blue and white school uniform and went out, eating instant noodles as he walked.

庆尘换上蓝白相间的校服出了门,边走边啃方便面。

The Los Angeles Foreign Language School he attended was divided into three campuses a few years ago, and the high school is only five minutes away from his home, and it only needs to cross a small road.

他所上的洛城外国语学校在前些年分成了三个校区,而高中部距离他家也不过是五分钟路程,仅需横穿过一条小路对抵达了。

On the way to the office, the scent of the egg-filled breakfast stalls wafted out, and pedestrians would sit at the stalls and eat a bowl of warm tofu noodles or spicy soup.

行署路上,鸡蛋灌饼的早餐摊飘出香味,行人们会坐在小摊子上吃一碗热乎乎的豆腐脑或者胡辣汤。

The freshly fried dough sticks are golden and crisp, and the tea eggs are smooth and translucent after peeling.

新炸好的油条金黄酥脆,茶叶蛋剥壳后光滑剔透。

But Qing Chen has no money, and his few savings are to deal with the countdown and purchase supplies.

可是庆尘身上没钱了,他为数不多的积蓄都为了应对那倒计时的时候,采购了物资。

This matter makes him have a toothache thinking about it now, but he does not regret it, after all, who knew what he had to face at that time?

这事让他现在想想都牙疼,但他不后悔,毕竟那时候谁知道自己要面对什么呢?

In Class 3 of the second year of high school, there is a classmate who is in charge of cleaning and sanitation. The smell of water after mopping the floor in the classroom has not disappeared, and the mop has been moldy for a long time.

高二3班,班级里正有负责值日的同学在打扫卫生,教室里拖地后的水腥味都还没散去,拖把怕是已经发霉很久了。

Qing Chen was sitting in the last row. At this moment, he saw Nan Gengchen walk into the classroom hurriedly at the same table with a nervous expression on his face.

庆尘坐在最后一排,这时只见他同桌南庚辰神色匆匆的走进教室,一脸的紧张。

“Ms. Du saw me skip class yesterday, but did he say anything later?” Qing Chen asked in a low voice.

“昨天杜老师看到我逃课,后来又说什么没有?”庆尘低声问道。

As a result, Nan Gengchen was absent-minded as if he hadn’t heard anything: “Huh? What?”

结果南庚辰心不在焉的好像什么都没听到似的:“啊?什么?”

“It’s okay,” Qing Chen shook his head: “Why do I think you are so flustered?”

“没事,”庆尘摇摇头:“我怎么看你这么慌张呢?”

“Panic?” Nan Gengchen was taken aback: “Nothing.”

“慌张?”南庚辰惊了一下:“没有啊。”

Qing Chen didn’t speak anymore, and there was no need to ask the truth about what the other party didn’t want to say.

庆尘不说话了,对方不想说的话,自己也没必要刨根问底。

After quieting each other for a while, Nan Gengchen suddenly lowered his voice and asked, “Qing Chen, what would you do if you encounter a particularly weird thing?”

彼此安静片刻,南庚辰突然压低声音问道:“庆尘,如果你遇到了特别诡异的事情,你会怎么做?”

“Weird?” Qing Chen froze for a moment, then looked at Nan Gengchen carefully. He hesitated for a moment and asked, “What exactly does it mean?”

“诡异?”庆尘愣了一下,然后仔细打量着南庚辰,他迟疑片刻问道:“具体是指什么事情?”

“I don’t know what it is, it’s weird anyway,” Nan Gengchen said.

“我也不知道是什么事,反正就很诡异,”南庚辰说道。

“Then call the police?” Qing Chen’s eyes locked on Nan Gengchen.

“那就报警?”庆尘目光紧紧锁定着南庚辰。

However, Nan Gengchen’s eyes lit up: “Yes, look for the police! Qingchen, is your family sending everyone out?”

却见南庚辰眼睛一亮:“对啊,找警察!庆尘,你家在派出所有人吗?”

“Yes,” Qing Chen thought for a while and said, “My dad was arrested for gambling in a crowd last night.”

“有啊,”庆尘想了想说道:“我爸昨天晚上刚因为聚众赌博被抓进去。”

Nan Gengchen: “???”

南庚辰:“???”
