Outside of time Chapter 410: Thousands of clouds cover the blue sky

Published:

与此同时,郡都刑狱司内,丁一三二区。

At the same time, Ding 132 District in the Criminal Prison Department of the county capital.

许青眉头皱起,看着小男孩消失的地方,半晌后他迈步走向丹青族所在的牢笼。

Xu Qing frowned, looked at the place where the little boy disappeared, and after a while, he walked towards the cage where the Danqing clan was.

或许是之前影子的威胁,所以这一次丹青族的那个老头没有藏身,而是在看到许青的第一时间,就连忙靠近栏杆,满脸恭敬的抱拳拜见。

Maybe it was the threat from the shadow before, so this time the old man of the Danqing clan did not hide, but the first time he saw Xu Qing, he hurriedly approached the railing and respectfully cupped his fists to meet him.

“丹青族罪人水墨子,见过镇守大人。”

“Shui Mozi, a sinner of the Danqing tribe, has met the guardian.”

“它是什么。”许青望着眼前这个身体虚幻的老者,沉声开口。

“What is it?” Xu Qing looked at the illusory old man in front of him, and said in a deep voice.

“回镇守大人,它是气运!老者没有任何迟疑,低声回应。

“Go back to guarding the adults, it is luck! The old man responded in a low voice without any hesitation.

许青闻言眼神变的凌厉。

Xu Qing’s eyes became sharp when he heard this.

在他的目光下,老者身体有些颤抖,他觉得眼前这个镇守,和之前自己所看到的那些很不一样。

Under his gaze, the old man’s body trembled a little. He felt that the guard in front of him was very different from the ones he had seen before.

而实际上他是不在意镇守的,毕竟他族群特殊,他觉得这些画中之人就算是把自己的载体碎灭了,也没有什么,都是虚幻而已。

In fact, he doesn’t care about guarding. After all, he is a special ethnic group. He feels that even if the people in these paintings shatter their carriers, it is nothing, they are all illusions.

但方才那一瞬,来自眼前这个镇守影子蔓延所带来的生死危机,让他有一种强烈的感觉,对方可以吃了自己。

But at that moment just now, the life-and-death crisis brought about by the spreading shadow of the guardian in front of him gave him a strong feeling that the other party could eat him.

这就让他紧张,毕竟被吃了,会很痛。

This made him nervous, after all, it would be very painful if he was eaten.

于是他注意到许青目光的改变,赶紧继续开口。

So he noticed the change in Xu Qing’s gaze, and hurriedly continued speaking.

“镇守大人,小老儿也不知道那气运为何在这里,我被关进来的时候它已经存在了。”

“My lord, the little old man doesn’t know why that luck is here. It already existed when I was imprisoned.”

“还要多些镇守大人帮忙,因为那气运总喜欢幻化在我们丹青一族的世界里,有它在,我不敢现身,我有种感觉,它也是想吃了我。”

“We need more guardians to help, because that luck always likes to transform into the world of our Danqing clan. With it, I dare not show up. I have a feeling that it also wants to eat me.”

“所以我之前无法提醒镇守大人您,还望镇守大人见谅。”

“So I couldn’t remind you, Lord Guardian, and I hope Lord Guardian will forgive you.”

老者赶紧解释,他也知道这话应该不会有人信,因为他明白自己开始至终没有去提醒狱卒的想法。

The old man hurriedly explained, and he also knew that no one would believe his words, because he knew that he did not remind the jailer of his thoughts from the beginning to the end.

可话还是要说的。

There is still something to say.

比较有些时候解释与不解释,在意义上是完全不一样的。

Comparing sometimes explaining and not explaining, the meaning is completely different.

最起码这代表了自己的认真态度。

At least this represents my serious attitude.

许青冷冷的看了这丹青族老者一眼,对方的话语,他没有相信多少,也懒得去拷问。

Xu Qing gave the old man of the Danqing tribe a cold look. He didn’t believe much of what the other party said, and he didn’t bother to torture him.

此刻转身离开回到了牢门后,许青散开了影子,对其下达了看管此地的命令。

At this moment, after turning around to leave and returning to the prison door, Xu Qing dispersed his shadow and gave him an order to guard the place.

这算是对它的奖励了。

This is a reward for it.

影子顿时激动,好似有了新玩具一般透出开心的情绪波动,飞速散开化作十四份,蔓延进入十四个牢笼内。

Shadow was suddenly excited, as if he had a new toy, showing happy mood swings, quickly dispersed into fourteen copies, and spread into fourteen cages.

云兽不吃东西了,因为影子好奇,正帮他吃。

The cloud beast stopped eating, because the shadow was curious and was helping him to eat.

女子越发颤抖,不去哄稻草人睡觉了,因为影子出现后,那些稻草人一个个哆嗦的站起,绕着它,无比听命。

The woman trembled more and stopped trying to put the scarecrow to sleep, because after the shadow appeared, those scarecrows stood up tremblingly one by one, walked around it, and obeyed orders extremely.

最后甚至和它一起环绕在女子四周,虎视眈眈。

In the end, it even surrounded the woman with it, staring at it.

磨盘依旧在转动,只不过不是自己去转,而是头颅在全力去顶。

The millstone is still turning, but instead of turning it by itself, the head is pushing it with all its strength.

双方都在惊恐,因为它们所在的牢笼,一条影鞭幻化,不断地抽去。

Both sides were terrified, because the cage they were in, a shadow whip turned into a shadow, and kept pulling away.

丹青族的画里,二十个身影表情都从曾经的微笑变成了恐惧,因为影子的本体趴在上面,舔来舔去。

In the paintings of the Danqing family, the expressions of the twenty figures have changed from smiles to fear, because the shadows are lying on them, licking and licking.

整个牢笼,在这一刻充满了祥和。

The entire cage is filled with peace at this moment.

唯有那个小男孩偶尔会出现看向许青,目光总是落在他的右手腕上,渐渐好奇之意没之前那么强烈,到了最后它索性盘膝坐在许青对面,挂着下巴望着许青。

Only that little boy would appear to look at Xu Qing occasionally, his eyes always falling on his right wrist, gradually his curiosity was not as strong as before, and in the end it simply sat cross-legged opposite Xu Qing, with its chin hanging Looking at Xu Qing.

许青也望着它。

Xu Qing also looked at it.

他知道,这个小男孩,就是这个丁一三二里的秘密了。

He knew that this little boy was Ding Yi San Erli’s secret.

就这样,时间流逝,很快半个月过去。

In this way, time passed, and soon half a month passed.

这半个月里,许青外出再么有遇到那种莫名其妙之事,而丁一三二在他的看管下,也变的无比正常。

In the past half a month, Xu Qing never encountered such inexplicable things when he went out, and Ding Yisaner became extremely normal under his supervision.

只是里面的犯人每次看向许青时,目中都带会露出一些惊恐。

It’s just that every time the prisoner inside looks at Xu Qing, there will be some panic in his eyes.

因为他们的身上,陆续的缺少了一些东西。

Because they are missing some things one after another.

都是影子干的。

It’s all shadows.

它的好奇心太强,总是喜欢这边吃一口,那边吃一口……好在这些犯人诡异,一夜过去都能重新长出来。

Its curiosity is too strong, and it always likes to take a bite here and a bite there… Fortunately, these prisoners are weird, and they can grow back overnight.

其中头颅那里也不再神神叨叨,只是偶尔许青路过时,它会叹息。

The head is no longer chattering, but occasionally when Xu Qing passes by, it will sigh.

“不要踩死我,我不要被踩死,好痛的。”

“Don’t trample me to death, I don’t want to be trampled to death, it hurts.”

而小男孩也与许青熟悉起来,基本上每天许青一来,它就会立刻幻化,坐在一旁。

The little boy also became familiar with Xu Qing. Basically, every day when Xu Qing came, it would immediately transform into an illusion and sit aside.

那样子,好似遵循了什么约定,去保护一般。

Looking like that, it seems to follow some agreement to protect it.

有些时候它还会去找影子,看着影子在恐吓犯人。

Sometimes it will look for the shadow, watching the shadow intimidate the prisoner.

至于金刚宗老祖……在他一脸可怜兮兮下,许青也没有将其收入储物袋,于是这丁一三二的卒子,除了影子外,又多了金刚宗老祖。

As for the Patriarch of the Vajra Sect… Xu Qing didn’t put him in the storage bag despite his pitiful face, so besides the shadow, there was also an elder of the Vajra Sect. ancestral.

他对那个磨盘更感兴趣,不知怎么和影子商量的,最终磨盘的牢笼归他管理了。

He was more interested in the millstone, and somehow he discussed it with Shadow, and finally the cage of the millstone was managed by him.

而影子最感兴趣的还是丹青族,它特别喜欢趴在上面,时而舔一口。

The shadow is most interested in the Danqing tribe, it especially likes to lie on it and lick it from time to time.

时间久了,那张画都模糊起来。

After a long time, the picture became blurred.

看着这一切,许青心底默默计算时间,根据他这半个月与其他狱卒的沟通,他知道刑狱司的狱卒,每个月都有处理犯人的份额。

Looking at all this, Xu Qing silently counted the time in his heart. According to his communication with other jailers in the past half month, he knew that the jailers of the Department of Penalty and Prison had a share of handling prisoners every month.

但要根据牢房犯人的数量去分配,许青算了算,自己只有二个份额。

However, according to the number of prisoners in the cell, Xu Qing has the final say, and he only has two shares.

他有些遗憾。

He has some regrets.

“丁一三二的犯人,有点少了。”

“Ding Yi San Er has a little less prisoners.”

就在许青琢磨如何去补充犯人时,丹青族的那个老者,颤颤悠悠的产出哀求之声。

Just as Xu Qing was thinking about how to replenish the prisoner, the old man of the Danqing clan made a trembling pleading sound.

“镇守大人,老朽有一个秘密告知,我不求其他,只求镇守大人听完后,若觉得老朽这秘密尚可,就……就收了这黑影可好。”

“Master Guardian, this old man has a secret to tell you. I don’t ask for anything else. I just ask that after listening to the Lord Guardian, if he thinks the secret of this old man is acceptable, then… just accept this black shadow.”

许青神色如常,没去在意。

Xu Qing looked normal and didn’t care.

“镇守大人……我们这丁一三二,一共关押了多少犯人?”

“Master Guardian… How many prisoners have we imprisoned in total?”

丹青老者颤声开口。

The old man Danqing spoke in a trembling voice.

这句话里蕴含了深深的惊恐,似乎它也是万般无奈,不得不去告知许青。

There is deep panic in this sentence, it seems that it is also helpless and has no choice but to tell Xu Qing.

许青闻言皱起眉头,冷冷看去。

Xu Qing frowned upon hearing this, and looked at him coldly.

此地十四个犯人,此事他来的时候就知道,也已一一对照完成,且关于这丁一三二的秘密,他已经探查出来。

He knew about the fourteen prisoners here when he came here, and he has already checked them one by one, and he has already found out the secrets of Ding Yi San Er.

而现在这丹青族老者突然这么问,故弄玄虚的嫌疑很大。

But now that the old man of the Danqing tribe suddenly asked this question, he was very suspected of playing tricks.

许青目光微冷,刚要收回目光。

Xu Qing’s eyes were slightly cold, and he was about to look away.

可下一瞬,他忽然神色一动,仔细回忆。

But in the next moment, his expression suddenly changed, and he recalled carefully.

“镇守大人你也察觉了是不是……”

“Master Guardian, have you noticed too…”

丹青族老者眼看如此,颤声开口。

Seeing this, the old man of the Danqing clan spoke in a trembling voice.

“镇守大人,我们这里,真的是十四个犯人吗?”

“Master Guardian, are there really fourteen prisoners here?”

“镇守大人你仔细回忆回忆,仔细思索一下。”

“Master Guardian, recall your memory carefully and think about it carefully.”

“你的记忆里,到底……此地有几个犯人。”

“In your memory, how many prisoners are there in this place?”

“你,真的发现了丁一三二的秘密了吗?”

“Have you really discovered Ding Yisaner’s secret?”

丹青老者声音越发微弱,直至最终消失不见。

The old man Danqing’s voice became weaker and weaker until it finally disappeared.

许青看着对方所在的牢笼,眼中精芒一闪。

Xu Qing looked at the prison where the other party was, with a flash of light in his eyes.

对方的话语带着一些诱导,这一点许青已经看出。

The other party’s words are somewhat inductive, Xu Qing has already seen this.

但无论如何,他还是心底确定了一下,回忆自己脑海的记忆画面。

But no matter what, he decided in his heart and recalled the memory picture in his mind.

这里的犯人他当初来的第一天,已经一一查看过。

He had checked the prisoners here one by one on the first day he came here.

一共十四位,第一个是云兽,第二个是人族女子,第三个是磨盘……第十三个是头颅,第十四个是丹青族。

A total of fourteen people, the first is a cloud beast, the second is a human woman, the third is a mopan…the thirteenth is a head, and the fourteenth is a Danqing tribe.

“十四个,没错。”许青仔细思索后又取出资料玉简,查看的很细致,依旧是十四个。

“Fourteen, that’s right.” After thinking carefully, Xu Qing took out the information jade slips, checked them carefully, and found that there were still fourteen.

可许青不知为何,在这回忆与思索中,隐隐感觉什么地方有些不对。

But for some reason, Xu Qing faintly felt that something was wrong in this memory and thinking.

但偏偏他说不出什么地方有问题,于是许青站起身,走向云兽所在牢笼。

But he couldn’t tell what was wrong, so Xu Qing stood up and walked towards the cage where the cloud beast was.

在哪里看了看后,他顺着过廊走了一大圈,直至到了丹青族老者那里,他数来数去,都是十四个。

After looking around, he walked a long circle along the corridor until he arrived at the old man of the Danqing clan. He counted and found fourteen of them.

此刻在丹青族的牢笼外,许青面色阴沉,凝望那张模糊的画,在心底给金刚宗老祖下了令。

At this moment, outside the cage of the Danqing Clan, Xu Qing looked gloomy, staring at the blurred painting, and gave an order to the ancestor of the Vajra Sect in his heart.

瞬息间黑色铁签飞出,绕着整个牢房游走一圈,飞入每一个牢笼内探查,最终归来,告知许青一切如常。

In an instant, the black iron stick flew out, wandered around the entire cell, flew into each cage to investigate, and finally returned, telling Xu Qing that everything was as usual.

许青沉默,又散出影子,一样探查一遍,影子那里更是从每一个犯人身上掠过,最终传递神念波动。

Xu Qing was silent, and then cast out a shadow to check again, and the shadow passed over every prisoner, and finally transmitted the wave of spiritual thoughts.

与他之前所查一样,没有任何不同。

Same as what he checked before, nothing different.

犯人的的确确是十四个。

There were indeed fourteen prisoners.

许青面色一沉,控制影子从面前的画上挪开一部分,使画内的老者完整显露。

Xu Qing’s complexion darkened, and he controlled the shadow to move part of the painting in front of him, so that the old man in the painting could be fully revealed.

丹青族老者此刻也望着许青,神色内带着慌张,哭诉开口。

The old man of the Danqing tribe also looked at Xu Qing at this moment, with panic in his expression, and cried out.

“大人,我也是没办法才这么胡说,方才黑影都要把我吃掉了,我无奈之下只能这样为自己争取一点时间,不然我就没了,大人您大量,原谅我一次,就一次!”

“My lord, I have no choice but to talk nonsense like that. The black shadows were going to eat me up just now. I have no choice but to buy myself some time like this. Otherwise, I will be gone. You are a lot, my lord. Forgive me.” Once, just once!”

许青没说话,目光更冷。

Xu Qing didn’t speak, but his eyes became colder.

老者颤抖,慌张变成了恐惧,随后飞速开口。

The old man trembled, his panic turned into fear, and then he spoke quickly.

“我接下来要说的~IndoMTL.com~是真的秘密,镇守大人,其实我们这座刑狱司真正镇压的犯人,是……一尊神!”

“What I’m going to say next ~IndoMTL.com~ is a real secret, Mr. Guardian, in fact, the prisoner that our Prison Division really suppresses is…a god!”

“仔细说说。”许青缓缓开口。

“Tell me carefully.” Xu Qing spoke slowly.

“镇守大人,我也不知晓太过具体,我是听曾经在这里的一位比我还古老的犯人所说,刑狱司在修建之时,曾将一尊神灵的分身封印……这也是历代宫主要镇守此地的原因。”

“Master Guardian, I don’t know too much about the specifics. I heard from a prisoner who was older than me here that the Prison Division once sealed the clone of a **** when it was being built… This is also the reason why the palaces of the past dynasties mainly guarded this place.”

许青若有所思,他想到了第一次到来,听到的来自深坑内的嘶吼,想到了时而在刑狱司内传来的大地深处的震动。

Xu Qing was thoughtful, he thought of the first time he arrived, the roars he heard from the deep pit, and the tremors in the depths of the earth that sometimes came from the prison department.

也想到了这里处理犯人的尸体,都是直接扔下深坑,好似在喂养。

I also thought of handling the corpses of the prisoners here, and they were all thrown directly into the deep pit, as if they were being fed.

这些思绪在他脑海弥漫,扩大,最终占据了全部范围,冲淡了他对丹青族老者之前故弄玄虚之事升起的凝惑。

These thoughts permeated and expanded in his mind, and eventually occupied the entire range, diluting his confusion about the old man of the Danqing tribe who had previously played up mysteries.

许久,许青看了丹青老者一眼,将影子从画上彻底召回。

For a long time, Xu Qing glanced at the old man Danqing, and completely recalled the shadow from the painting.

影子虽不情愿,但也没办法,只能将注意力放在其他犯人身上,继续玩耍。

Although Shadow was reluctant, he had no choice but to focus on the other prisoners and continue playing.

金刚宗老祖也是这般,去了磨盘那里。

The ancestor of the Vajra Sect did the same thing, and went to Mopan.

丁一三二区,恢复如常,一切如初。

Ding 1, 3 and 2 districts, everything is back to normal.

那个气运小男孩也重新出现,看其所在的位置,它似乎一直跟在许青身边,保持一定距离,从没有离开过。

The lucky little boy also reappeared, judging from its location, it seems to have been following Xu Qing, keeping a certain distance, and never leaving.

时间慢慢流逝,过去数日。

Time passed slowly, several days passed.

许青一切都正常,丹青族老者的话语,他虽也曾偶尔思索,但不知不觉间,已在他的脑海逐渐散去。

Everything is normal for Xu Qing. Although he occasionally thought about the words of the old man of the Danqing clan, they have gradually dissipated in his mind unconsciously.

直至这一天到了下值的时间,从丁一三二离开准备回剑阁的他,在这刑狱司内看见了熟人。

Until the day when it was time to be on duty, since Ding Yisaner was about to return to the Jiange after leaving, he saw an acquaintance in the prison department.

是孔祥龙。

It is Kong Xianglong.
