Ch 16: Transmigrating into a demon spirit to blow up the world (Unedited)

Chapter 16: The young commanders’ little mirror 16

Rong province is a fat piece of meat* that all types of people would like a bite of, and here is the stronghold of the Southern Army’s Rong province. Just as Han Ying landed someone respectfully stepped forward, the one on the left brought a letter and quietly said: “Commander, the list is here.”

*an auspicious place   

榮省這塊無主的肥肉各方人馬都想咬一口,而這裡就是南軍在榮省私立的據點。韓贏剛一落地就有人恭敬的上前,左邊為首的那個拿著信低聲道:“少帥,名單都在這裡。”

Han Ying glanced at the letter, without speaking, only slightly raising a hand, to signal the people to come over.

韓贏將信掃了一眼,沒有說話,只微微抬了下手,示意人跟過來。

Several people quickly followed, turning left along the backyard to proceed to the study, but the tallest person at the back was somewhat unsettled, while walking he couldn’t help but ask: “Commander, this time we……”

幾人隨即靜靜的跟上,沿著後院左拐前往書房,然而最後面的那個大高個子有些沉不住氣,一邊走一邊就憋不住想問:“少帥,我們這次……”

As he was behind, he didn’t see Han Ying started to frown, only knew that after he had spoken a few words, only to feel a fierce rush of force from the front.

他跟在後面,沒看到韓贏隨著他的啟口而皺起了眉,只知自己才說了幾個字,就覺到一股淩厲的勁氣沖門面直撲而來。

The sense of danger instantly made his hair bristle, but it was already too late to avoid as the force was too close and fast, intuition made him not dare to resist, the next second his ear became numb, instinctively reaching out to touch, the half of the hand was somewhat sticky.

危險感瞬間讓他寒毛倒豎,可那道勁氣太近太快根本避之不及,直覺上又不敢反抗,下一秒便耳朵一麻,本能的伸手去摸,頓時半手黏膩。

The back felt a chill, consciously aware that if Han Ying made it 2 inches more, it would have hit his carotid artery. This time he didn’t even dare to breath deeply, all the way with the rest and the two cautiously followed Han Ying into the study. After Han Ying sat, only then did he casually look at him, “How long have you been transferred to the operating group?”

脊背不由陣陣發冷,後知後覺的想到只消韓贏偏個兩寸,他被劃開的就是頸動脈了。這下連大氣都不敢出,一路小心翼翼的和其餘兩人一起跟著韓贏進到書房。韓贏落座之後,才淡淡看了他一眼,“你調入行動組多久了?”

“Previously under general Jiang Tai,” Seeing Han Ying raise a hand, the tall man who Han Ying had previously thrown the letter at to injure the ear sent the letter back, continued to answer: “It’s been a year since I was transferred to the operation group……”

“屬下之前是跟在江泰將軍手下的,”見韓贏伸出手,高個漢子忙把剛才被韓贏扔來劃破自己耳朵的那封信給送回去,繼續答:“轉到行動組快一年了……”

“Since it has been almost a year,” Han Ying opened the letter on the table, then made a fist knocking his knuckle on the table, “……why didn’t you even learn the basic rules?”

“既然快一年了,”韓贏把信在桌上展開,屈起指節輕叩桌面,“……怎麼還連基本的規矩都沒學會?”

The knocking sound was very faint, but it made the tall man kneel due to fear, still wanted to explain, but listening to Han Ying directly say: “Go back and study again then come back after half a year.”    

這一聲叩明明很細微,卻讓高個漢子一臉惶恐的跪了下去,還想要添句解釋,卻聽韓贏直接道:“回去重學半年再回來。”

In a short sentence his hard work for nearly a year was erased, but he was quick to respectfully and earnestly nod, not daring to speak again. A gust of wind entered through the open door, the letterhead on the table turned over, written above were the list of suspected traitors.

一句話就抹滅了他將近一年的辛苦曆煉,他卻忙恭敬而認真的點頭稱是,一聲不敢再吭。開門時吹進了一陣風,桌上的信角隨之翻卷而起,上面盡是折損的人員及疑似內奸的判斷名單。

No wonder that the tall man just now was anxious, the mole that was hidden among them was already in a very desperate situation. The stronghold had 20 top people, the past two operations were absolutely confidential, but they had lost five men in succession.

也無怪乎方才的高個漢子會急,內奸這種事放誰身上都是火燒眉毛的大事。這個據點攤在明面上的人本來足有二十,而近兩次明明是絕對機密的行動,卻接連折掉了五個。

These 20 people were skilled, and have good professions and social prestige for cover, they were elites who have been trained for several years, one loss is a great loss. Han Ying no longer looks at the list, instead picks the teapot at hand and pours a cup of tea, and slowly drank. He was silent, the following people also dared not speak, the atmosphere inside the house gradually condensed like a thick ink, until he finishes drinking did he only speak: “Don’t bother looking for the mole, –Perhaps, it is too late, just wait here, he will voluntarily show up.”      

這二十人身手了得,並在本地有良好的職業及社會聲望做掩護,均是培養了數年的精英,少一個都是大損失。韓贏不再看名單,而是拿起手邊的茶壺倒了杯茶,慢慢喝下去。他不說話,下面的人也都不敢說話,屋內的氣氛漸漸凝結成一團濃稠的墨,直到待他喝完茶才開口:“不用費心思找內奸了,——只怕現在找也來不及了。就在這等著吧,他馬上就會自動出現了。”

The two people weren’t able to understand, but after Han Ying finished talking in a while, there was a distinct noise and clamoring sounds in the normally quiet alley in the middle of the night.     

底下的兩人都有些不懂,而韓贏才說完沒多久,就聽深夜向來寧靜的巷子竟隱隱傳來吵鬧和喧囂聲。

The sound was getting more and more closer, continuing to the front yard’s door. Han Ying’s eyes narrowed, releasing the cup, then stood and went towards the front yard.  

聲音越來越近,一直傳到前院門口。韓贏微眯起眼,然後放下杯子,站起身往前院走。

The stronghold was finely made, located in the deep and dark alley, during construction the displacement method was done to overlap, it only looked like it had one layer, but in fact there were two layers hidden inside. While Han Ying moved, the two hurriedly followed, in the dark several shadow guards accordingly changed their positions a bit: “Open the door! There is a great Jiang Yang thief fleeing to this area, the patrol is going to search the houses one by one!!”

這個據點建的很微妙,位置本就處於幽深的巷子,建時又用錯位法做疊合,看著只有一層,實際上內裡還藏著兩層。韓贏動的時候,身前兩人也忙跟著抬腳,暗處幾個影子般的守衛們更隨之變了點位。前院門外的喧鬧還在繼續:“開門!有江洋大盜逃竄到這一帶,巡捕房要挨戶搜查!!”

The yard’s door opened the next moment to see a pair of military boots impatiently entering, it was Chen Dun Fu who had a low-ranking army that grandfather Han sneered at, personally bringing a patrol force, rushing in without a word.   

院門打開的下一刻便見一雙軍靴迫不及待的邁進來,正是曾被韓老爺子嗤笑為雜牌軍的陳敦複,親自帶著一隊巡查兵,二話不說便要往裡沖。

At this time a voice was brought by the wind, “General Chen, it’s been ages since we’ve met.”

這時一道聲音隨著風漸近,“陳將軍,許久不見。”

Without fierceness, and without a stifling atmosphere, with just an indisputable boldness, every step from Han Ying’s approach is clearly communicated. Chen Dun Fu paused, his hand pressing on his waist suddenly tightened, the deep look became more gloomy, abruptly raising his head toward the sound, “Commander Han,” deliberately using a look of surprise, pursed the eyebrows with doubt asked: “How can you be here? I wasn’t aware of your coming to Rong province……”    

沒有淩厲,也沒有煞氣,有的只是不容置疑的魄力,從韓贏踏近的每一步清晰地傳出來。陳敦複一頓,按在腰間的手猛然緊了緊,本就沉沉的臉色又陰了兩分,隨即抬起頭循聲望去,“韓少帥,”故意裝出一副驚訝的樣子,皺起眉困惑的問:“您怎麼會在這裡?您大駕光臨榮省,我竟毫不知情……”

“I came only for sightseeing. My lover was bored at home, I proposed to shop around Rong province,” Speaking of the word lover, Han Ying expression had a hint of tenderness that was difficult to notice, “it happened that there was an old friend here, that was pleasant to talk to, I carelessly forgot the time.”

“我只是來觀光的。愛人在家裡待悶了,便提出來榮省逛逛,”說到愛人兩字,韓贏的神色帶著絲不易察覺的溫柔,“正巧又有位故人居於此地,言談甚歡,不小心忘了時間。”

“That is really unfortunate,” Chen Dun Fu awkwardly said: “I’m pursuing a great Jiang Yan thief here, my patrol men saw the other rushing into the yard, this careful search cannot be avoided.”

“那可真不巧,”陳敦複很是為難的道:“我這裡在追捕一名江洋大盜,手下的巡捕親眼見著對方閃身進了這座院子,少不得要細細搜一搜。”

“A great Jiang Yan you say? I didn’t see,” Han Ying asked the people beside him, “did you see anyone come over?”

“江洋大道?我倒沒瞧見,”韓贏問了句身邊的人,“你們可曾看見有誰過來?”

The two person simultaneously replied: “No.”

兩人齊齊答:“沒有。”

Chen Dun Fu swept a look at the two tall men beside Han Ying, the person on the left side has special sleeves, with a long cover point, but it still showed that it refers to those who has long surpassed the average people, the person on the right has no characteristic features, the skin color was even unhealthy, but his force wasn’t a bit lacking.

陳敦複掃了眼韓贏身邊那兩名高瘦漢子,左側人的衣袖似是特製,長近蓋指,卻仍可見其指長遠超常人,右側人倒沒什麼特點,膚色甚至透著病態,然而威勢不輸他半分。

Chen Dun Fu wasn’t shocked, –He had planned a long time ago to come and take the people, there was nothing to be surprised about, but he was surprised

陳敦複本可不驚,——他本就是策劃了許久前來拿人的那個,沒什麼需要驚的,但他驚了。

Because Han Ying later decided to stand, there were muffled sounds on either side of the yard wall, very light, but it was very clear in Chen Dun Fu’s ear.

因為在韓贏站定之後,左右兩邊的院牆接連傳來幾聲悶響,很輕,在陳敦複耳裡卻非常明顯。

It was the sound of a human body falling. Chen Dun Fu was aware about what it was, what was clearer was that several of his most powerful force were ambushed on top of the yard’s wall, included among them was Feng Yi a deputy leader taken from Han Ying’s stronghold.  

是人體墜地的聲音。陳敦複很清楚那是什麼,更清楚的是他最有實力的幾個親兵全埋伏在院牆之上,其中還包括那名反水于韓贏的據點二把手馮乙。

The people under Han Ying had high moral characters, Chen Dun Fu spent a lot of effort to seize Feng Yi’s weakness, and was unwilling to ruin this piece before it had been fully utilized. This several muffled sounds meant that, if it wasn’t his forces killing the hidden guards in the dark, then it came from Han Ying’s troops which came out of nowhere, to outflank him from behind.

韓贏手底下的人都是硬骨頭,陳敦複花費了很大的功夫才抓住馮乙的弱點,不想在這枚棋子還沒完全物盡其用之前就毀掉。而這幾聲悶響意味著,如果不是由他的親兵殺掉了韓贏藏於暗處的守衛,便是韓贏不知何處來了另一批人馬,已包抄了自己的後方。

He couldn’t help but have cold sweats, Chen Dun Fu tried hard to remain calm, and said in a heavy voice: “Commander Han may not have seen, I can’t manage it, I can only search and arrest people.”

冷汗不由冒了出來,陳敦複面上竭力保持鎮定,沉聲道:“韓少帥看沒看見,我管不著,我只管搜捕和抓人。”

Han Ying raised his brows, “General Chen, no matter what, I have to handle it. ……if you have to search, I will have to manage it.”

韓贏抬了抬眉,“陳將軍不管,我卻是要管的。……你能不能搜捕,我也要管。”

This wasn’t a simple and light sentence and it evoked layers of wind and waves, Chen Dun Fu was suddenly unable to remain calm: “What does commander Han mean, is it necessary to stop me from catching a thief?!” 

這不輕不淡的一句卻激起千層風浪,陳敦複頓時沉不住氣了:“韓少帥什麼意思,是要阻止我抓捕盜賊嗎?!”

“I haven’t seen the thief, but the people here, are all my comrades.”  

“我沒看見盜賊,而這裡的人,全是我的弟兄。”

The word comrades clearly raised the spirits of Han Ying’s hidden subordinates, brothers, is fate and not a person’s choice, and will contend with family rights and are irreconcilable adversaries; but comrades, is a personal choice, willing to give their total support, you don’t need the blood’s restraints to die together.

弟兄這兩個字讓韓贏手下明裡暗裡的人都一振。兄弟,是上天命定不由人擇,卻會為家產權財而鬥的你死我活;而弟兄,是自己選的,全盤相信全力扶持,不需要血緣和羈絆便能同生共死。

Han Ying continued to say: “The two beside me, five hidden on the sides, two on the roof, five around the yard’s wall, and the seven in the somewhat distant alley, inside and out adds up to a total of 21 people, –Are all my comrades.”   

韓贏繼續道:“我身邊這兩個,左右兩側暗藏的五個,屋頂兩個,院牆周圍五個,還有巷口稍遠處的七個,裡裡外外加起來一共二十一人,——全都是我的弟兄。”

Chun Dun Fu had planned for so long, naturally knew that Han Ying words were true, –Even if the seven in the somewhat distant alley was never mentioned by Feng Yi before, but his heart was more inclined to Han Ying’s words. Han Ying’s tone and demeanor, or to say that he has an ability to convince people, moreover people from the higher ranks are suspicious in nature, even if Feng Yi is from a high position, there is always something they wouldn’t know, and Han Ying will never completely reveal his bottom cards, this made Chun Dun Fu temporarily unable to fight back.

陳敦複謀劃那麼久,自然知道韓贏說言屬實,——雖然巷口稍遠處的七個是他之前不曾從馮乙口中得知的,但他心裡更偏向于韓贏的話。韓贏的語氣和神態,或者說他這個人就是有著讓人信服的魔力,何況久居上位的人天性多疑,馮乙身份雖然高,也終有自己不知道的東西。而韓贏這樣將底牌完全挑明,倒讓陳敦複一時不知該如何回擊。

Wait, –Five around the yard’s wall?

等等,——院牆周圍五個?

Because Feng Yi’s family had fallen in his hands he was forced to be a traitor when it comes to the stronghold’s defense, it was clearly said that there were four around the yard’s wall, this excess is……

因家人落到他手裡才被迫反水的馮乙提到據點的佈防時,明明說的是院牆四個,那多出來的這一個是……

Could Han Ying be aware that Feng Yi is here? He actually counted Feng Yi? Or maybe Feng Yi being a traitor was a plan? Chen Dun Fu’s heart was thrown in disarray, for the plan’s sake he can only forcefully gnash his teeth and say: “If commander Han insists on harboring the thief, I can only ask you to please follow me to the patrol building.”

難道韓贏知道馮乙也在這裡?他竟然算上了馮乙?更或者馮乙的反水只是一場計中計?陳敦複心裡一片繁亂,為今之計只能硬著頭皮咬牙道:“如果韓少帥執意要包庇盜賊,只能請您跟我去巡鋪房走一趟了。”
