• Akiko: Talking Elbows

Volume fourteenth. Get rich together

Nan Gengchen looked at Qing Chen and was stunned for a while: “Brother, I want to ask the police uncle in the police station for help. It’s not much help like the uncle he was caught in a hurry.”

南庚辰看着庆尘,怔然了半晌:“大哥,我是想找派出所里的警察叔叔帮忙,像叔叔他被抓紧去这种帮不上什么忙啊。”

“Then there is no way,” Qing Chen shook his head, and he asked further: “Have you encountered something very strange? What the hell is it?”

“那就没办法了,”庆尘摇摇头,他进一步问道:“你遇到很诡异的事情了吗?到底是什么事?”

“It’s all right,” Nan Gengchen said nothing.

“没事没事,”南庚辰对此闭口不言。

Qing Chen stopped talking.

庆尘不再说话。

If the other party doesn’t want to say this kind of thing, then he can only treat it as unaware.

这种事情对方不愿意说,那自己也就只能当做不知情。

But he had a faint guess in his heart, Nan Gengchen’s so-called weird… Could it be that the countdown also appeared on his arm?

不过他心中有了隐隐的猜测,南庚辰所谓的诡异……会不会是手臂上也出现了倒计时?

But the countdown is invisible to others, so Qing Chen can only rely on guessing.

但倒计时别人是看不见的,所以庆尘也只能靠猜测。

The countdown to his first crossing appeared at 6 o’clock last night. He skipped class and went for the first time at 12 o’clock in the evening without studying at night.

自己的第一次穿越倒计时是昨天晚上6点出现的,他当时就逃课走了,没有上晚自习,晚上12点就进行了第一次穿越。

If there was a countdown on Nan Gengchen’s arm, when would it appear?

如果南庚辰手臂上真的也出现了倒计时,那会是什么时候出现的呢?

Qing Chen thought to himself, this Nan Gengchen is thin and small, and looks weak at first sight. If he really travels to that world, I don’t know if he can survive.

庆尘心想,这南庚辰瘦瘦小小的,一看就弱不禁风的样子,要是真的穿越去那个世界也不知道能不能生存下来啊。

The relationship between the two of them is pretty good, not because of how close they are, but because their fathers both played cards and gambling, which made each other’s family conditions poor.

他们俩关系还不错,也不是因为俩人性格多么合得来,而是俩人的父亲都打牌、赌博,搞得彼此家庭条件都不怎么样。

After chatting about this incident by chance, the two teenagers got closer.

偶然间聊起这个事情后,两个少年反而因此拉近了关系。

At this moment, a classmate who was playing with a mobile phone in the class suddenly exclaimed: “Fuck!”

就在此时,班级里忽然有正在玩手机的同学惊呼一声:“卧槽!”

Before class time, there were only a dozen students in Class 3 of the second year in the classroom. Everyone turned their eyes to: “What’s wrong?”

还没到上课时间,整个高二3班只有十来个同学在教室里,大家把目光转过去:“咋了?”

“Look at the hot search. Jacob opened a press conference and said that he had traveled to a world of mechanical civilization. There is a complete video of his conference on the hot search,” said the student who screamed.

“你们快看热搜,雅各布开了一个新闻发布会,说他穿越到了一个机械文明世界,热搜上有他发布会的完整视频,”那位惊叫出声的同学说道。

Jacob, American nationality, one of the most famous basketball stars in the world, has many fans.

雅各布,美国国籍,世界最出名的篮球明星之一,粉丝很多。

After hearing this, the classmates immediately turned on their phones to read hot searches, and everyone was at a loss.

班里同学听了这话立刻打开手机去看热搜,每个人都一头雾水。

Only Qing Chen was stunned on the spot, because he knew what was going on with the so-called traversal and mechanical civilization!

只有庆尘愣在当场,因为他知道那所谓的穿越与机械文明是怎么回事!

However, he didn’t expect that before, there are people abroad who are experiencing things like crossing and countdown.

可是,他之前还真没想到,原来国外也有人在经历穿越与倒计时这样的事情。

Nan Gengchen had already opened the video, and Qing Chen watched it.

南庚辰已经打开了视频,庆尘看过去。

In the video, Jacob was sitting behind the table, facing all the media he invited to go temporarily, and the flashes flashed densely on the spot, which was a bit dazzling.

视频里雅各布坐在桌子后面,面对着他临时请去的所有媒体,现场闪光灯密集的闪烁着,让人有些眼花缭乱。

But everyone who watched the video saw Jacob’s left arm at first glance, because that left arm had been completely replaced by a mechanical arm.

可所有观看视频的人,第一眼就看到雅各布的左臂,因为那支左臂已经完全换成了机械手臂。

In the video, Jacob got up and took everyone to the basketball court. Then, across the entire court, he easily threw the basketball into the basket with his left hand, even for ten in a row.

视频里,雅各布起身带大家去篮球场,然后隔着整个球场,用左手轻松将篮球投入篮筐,一连十个都是如此。

“Is this a special effect?” Nan Gengchen murmured: “Is it a commercial, special effects?”

“这是特效吗?”南庚辰喃喃道:“是不是拍的广告片,做的特效啊?”

Qing Chen did not speak.

庆尘没有说话。

The video was brought back from abroad, and Chinese subtitles were added to the video.

视频是有人从国外搬运回来的,还为视频配上了中文字幕。

In the video, Jacob said to the media: “I accidentally found a countdown on my arm last night. When the countdown ended, I actually shuttled to a strange mechanical civilization. There is also the earth, the sun and the moon, but they seem to be parallel. The universe, the progress of civilization is completely different from the world we live in.”

视频里雅各布对媒体说道:“我昨天晚上意外发现自己手臂上出现倒计时,当倒计时结束的时候我竟然穿梭到了一个奇怪的机械文明世界,那里也是地球,有太阳有月亮,但似乎是平行宇宙,文明进程与我们所在的世界截然不同。”

Jacob raised his left arm: “I have this arm through the past, as if I replaced someone over there, becoming a new self. I don’t know how it works, but It’s strength is far beyond my imagination, and it’s very flexible and precise.”

雅各布举起自己的左臂:“我穿越过去便拥有了这条手臂,就像是我替代了那边的某个人一样,成为了新的自己。我也不清楚它是什么原理,但它的力气远超我想象,而且非常灵活、精准。”

“The reason why I am holding the press conference is not to show off to you. The world is not as beautiful as imagined, but extremely dangerous. I am holding the press conference here to prevent me from being secretly taken away for research. I am here. I declare that I refuse to be the subject of research. If I disappear one day, please…”

“而我召开新闻发布会的原因并不是要向各位炫耀,那个世界也并非想象的那么美好,反而异常危险。我在这里召开新闻发布会是为了避免我被秘密带走进行研究,我在这里声明,本人拒绝成为研究对象,如果有一天我失踪,请各位……”

When Qing Chen saw this place, he was surprised that Jacob was a public figure, so he couldn’t hide the fact that he had mechanical limbs.

庆尘看到这里恍然,雅各布是个公众人物,所以自己身上有了机械肢体根本瞒不住。

The other party knew that the technology of that world was far beyond contemporary, so for fear that he would be taken away to study and become a guinea pig, he chose a more radical method.

对方又很清楚那个世界的科技远超当代,所以生怕自己被带走研究成为小白鼠,就选择了更加激进的方法。

This may not be a good way, or the other party may be more flustered, so he made such a decision hastily.

这未必是个好办法,也可能对方比较慌张,所以仓促做了这么一个决定。

Qing Chen looked at Nan Gengchen, the thin and small at the same table dumbfounded.

庆尘看向南庚辰,此时瘦瘦小小的同桌呆若木鸡。

And Qing Chen was thinking that he could not bring the boning knife over, nor the toothbrush back. It seems that the only way to bring something from there is to transform himself, or hide it in his body?

而庆尘在想,自己没能将剔骨刀带过去,也没能将牙刷带回来,看来想要从那边带东西的唯一方法,就是改造自己,或者藏在身体里?

Don’t know where Jacob appeared when he traveled across the past, across the ocean?

也不知道雅各布穿越过去是出现在哪里,大洋彼岸吗?

At this time, all the students in the class are in a state of shock and doubt. It is even difficult for everyone to judge whether this hot search is true or synthetic special effects.

此时,班级里所有学生都陷入震惊与将信将疑的状态里,大家甚至很难判断这个热搜到底是真的,还是合成特效。

However, before everyone came back to their senses, the hot search rankings suddenly had a few weird incidents rushing to the list.

然而还没等大家回过神来呢,热搜排名忽然又有几个诡异事件冲上了榜单。

“A certain Internet executive was found dead at home, and a sophisticated mechanical structure suddenly appeared on his body, very similar to Jacob.”

“某互联网高管被发现死于家中,身上忽然出现精密的机械构造,与雅各布极其相似。”

“A certain college student claims that he has also traveled to another world, where there are not only mechanical civilizations, but also extraordinary people beyond ordinary people.”

“某大学生声称自己也穿越到了另一个世界,那里不止有机械文明,还有超越常人的超凡者。”

“A high school student claimed that he not only traveled to another world, but also gained the awakening ability.”

“某高中生宣称自己不仅穿越到了另一个世界,还获得了觉醒异能。”

Qing Chen frowned and watched. This series of news came faster than he thought, and not everyone could be as cautious as him.

庆尘皱起眉头看着,这一系列新闻要比他想象中来的更快,并不是所有人都能像他一样谨慎。

More and more news are declaring to the world: this is not special effects, nor advertising copy, but real existence.

越来越多的新闻都在向世人宣告:这不是特效,也不是广告文案,而是真实存在的。

Someone really has crossed into that unknown and full of fantasy world.

真的有人穿越到了那个未知而又充满幻想的世界。

Moreover, there are not a few traversers.

而且,穿越者并不在少数。

Nan Gengchen next to him murmured: “Extraordinary, mechanical civilization…Is there a chance to become an extraordinary one through the past?”

他身边的南庚辰喃喃道:“超凡者,机械文明……那穿越过去是不是有机会成为超凡者?”

A classmate asked: “I think the probability of crossing is not small. Will there be students crossing in our school?”

有同学问道:“我看着穿越概率不小啊,咱们学校里会不会也有同学穿越?”

“Maybe someone came to school with a mechanical limb…”

“也许就有人带着机械肢体来上学了……”

“I also want to cross…”

“我也想穿越……”

There are more and more classmates in the class. Whenever someone approaches the classroom, everyone will cast their eyes to see if they have any mechanical limbs.

班级里的同学越来越多,每当有人走近教室的时候,大家都会将目光投去,看看对方有没有机械肢体。

We must know that they are only seventeen or eighteen years old when their curiosity, desire for exploration, and vanity are strongest. Adults may consider whether danger and opportunity are equal, but young people are more looking forward.

要知道他们才十七八岁的年纪,正是好奇心与探索欲、虚荣心最浓烈的时候,成年人或许会考虑危险与机遇是否对等,但少年人更多的则是期待。

When you watch Harry Potter, you expect to be able to pass through King’s Station, and when you read novels, you also hope that you can be attracted by fairies.

你看哈利波特的时候会期待自己也能穿过国王车站,看小说的时候也希望自己可以得到仙人接引。

But the real world is that, under normal circumstances, it is not the fairy who greets you, but the fairy jump.

但现实世界是,一般情况下迎接你的都不是仙人,而是仙人跳。

So when everyone finds that they can become different after crossing the past, they will filter out some dangerous information, and then expect that they are also one of the traversers.

所以当大家发现穿越过去后可以变得与众不同,那他们会过滤掉一些危险信息,然后期待自己也是穿越者之一。

The protagonist of the world sounds very tempting.

世界的主角,听起来就很有诱惑力。

Qing Chen is hardly an exception.

庆尘也很难例外。

It’s just a little bit different. Qing Chen has really traveled through it, and has really met the otherworldly people in the legend, Lin Xiaoxiao and Li Shutong.

只是有一点不同,庆尘真的穿越过,而且也真的见过传说中那些超凡脱俗的人,林小笑、李叔同。

Ye Wan should be too.

叶晚应该也是。

Slowly, Qing Chen found that Nan Gengchen’s panicked expression faded, but gradually became energetic.

慢慢的,庆尘发现南庚辰的慌张神色褪去,反而渐渐精神抖擞了起来。

Qing Chen asked casually: “Is this the weird thing you just said?”

庆尘漫不经心的问道:“你刚才说的诡异的事情就是这个吗?”

Nan Gengchen lowered his voice: “I can’t tell you yet, but don’t worry, if I can get any opportunities, I will definitely not forget you, brother.”

南庚辰压低了声音:“现在还不能告诉你,但你放心,如果我能得到什么机遇,一定不会忘了兄弟你的。”

Qing Chen nodded: “Yeah, don’t forget the riches.”

庆尘点头:“嗯嗯,苟富贵勿相忘。”
