【凯源/千宏】Fête du Grand Pardon—救赎日(中英双语,架空)

*背景设定:中世纪初的法国,但是人物完全架空。会有涉及宗教和政治的片段,但都是基于我少得可怜的知识写的,错得不能忍的欢迎指正,但请勿较真(毕竟我的历史知识基本还给老师了╮(╯▽╰)╭)

*人物设定:源——有特异能力的王子;凯——奴隶;千——市长之子;宏——贫民窟的孤儿(都是最初设定,后来会变化的)【欧欧西会有,但不会渣化或弱化人设】

*语言设定:嘛,因为我是英专生,想练练英文写作哈哈,所以,写作方式是一段英文一段中文,语言离优美还有十万八千里,有些表达确实可能不地道,欢迎交流点评~(如果有人看英文部分的话……)

*风格设定:偏严肃,略黑暗(我就是要当一个追求不同风格的美蓝纸╮(╯▽╰)╭)

*想写很久了的故事,但是写成他们的同人完全是非常突然的脑洞,有兴趣追的亲就当成是一个与真人完全无关的故事来看就好。

 

Chapter One

 

The night is endless and silent.  

Dimmed stars indicate no hope.

What the future holds--

If no one is worthy of your care?

 

是夜漫长而死寂。

暗淡的星预示着无望。

若无人值得你关心,

未来又有什么意义?

 

Sun rises and a new day comes, simple and peace as usual for Roy—the prince of France.

Roy's eyelashes vibrate a little, and then he opens his eyes.

“Ah, another day.”

Roy stretches out his right hand for a little while. He was catching the air.

 

太阳升起,新的一天降临了。对法兰西王子Roy来说,这是简单和平常的一天。

Roy的睫毛轻轻颤动了下,然后他睁开了双眼。

“啊……另一天又来了。”

Roy伸出右手,在空中抓了一会儿。

 

“What are you doing, my dear Prince?”

Butler Havison enters.

“Nothing.”Roy puts back his hand. “What drives you here so early?”

“Excuse me, my honored Prince, but I shall remind you that today is the day for the 'BigShow'.” Havison bows and puts his hand above his left breast.

“Again…You know I hate such occasion the most.” Roy gets up. “ Especially the 'Big Show'.”

“I understand, Prince, but it's the appointment of the King…”

“I know.” Roy stops Havison, “Get me dressed.”

 

“您在做什么呀,亲爱的王子殿下。”

管家Havison走了进来。

“没什么。”Roy把手放了回去。“什么风这么早把你吹来了?”

“抱歉,王子殿下,但我得提醒您,今天是‘大演出’的日子。”Havison一边鞠躬一边把手放在左胸口。

“又来了……你知道我最讨厌这种场合了,”Roy坐起身,“特别是‘大演出’。”

“我明白,王子殿下,可这是国王的指令……”

“我知道。”Roy打断了Havison,“帮我更衣吧。”

 

The“Big Show” is a beautified name for a dirty and cruel fight. It has a morewell-known and real name—the “Beast Fight”.

Every season, there is a big fight in the ancient arena that lies in the suburb of Paris. The protagonists of this fight are unusual. One side is a beastly big animal collected from all over the world, and another side is—a human.

The human gladiators are usually chosen from convicts, slaves, or deadly deprivedmen. Some are forced to fight—if they win, they earn freedom; some live such a despairedlife that they would try the last hope—those who beat the beasts can win a considerable reward.

 

“大演出”是美化了的名字,实质上它是一个肮脏残忍的角斗。它有个更为人所知和真实的名字——“兽斗”。

在巴黎城郊的古老竞技场里,每一季都会上演一场大斗。一方是从世界各地搜集来的凶残的动物,另一方则是——人类。

人类角斗士通常选自囚犯,奴隶,或极度贫困的人。有些人是被迫战斗——如果能赢,他们将获得自由;有些人则是因为生活如此贫苦,所以想试试最后的希望——打败野兽就能获得一笔可观的奖金。

 

It is the festival of the upper class. Gentlemen and ladies in beautiful suits are not better than the beasts in the arena at all. 

The ugliest and cruelest side of human is shown here every three months.

“The Big Show…What a suitable name! The show of the REAL beast—savage human beings.”Roy murmurs.  

He is sitting in the carriage, holding his cheek on one hand and looks at the direction of the arena.

 

这是上流社会的盛宴。身着华服的“绅士淑女”一点也不比竞技场内的禽兽好多少。

每三个月,人性最丑陋和残忍的一面在这里暴露无遗。

“大演出……多么适合的名字!未开化人类的卖力演出——他们才是真正的野兽吧!”Roy喃喃自语道。

他正坐在马车里,单手托腮,望着竞技场的方向。

 

Roy hates this “show” in the bone, yet he has no choice but to come. Cause it’s the command of the King, which he cannot oppose.

Royis the Prince, and also a prisoner. 

His mother died early, and his father lost his life in a war when Roy is ten. Thenthe throne was usurped by his uncle—the King now.

The King has not killed Roy because of Roy’s super power—he can foresee what happens in the future.

Just by gazing at the top of one’s head, Roy can see the scene of future. In terms of how long from the present—as near as an hour and as far as ten years—it depends on how much God would like him to know.

 

Roy对这种“演出”深恶痛绝,却不得不去现场。因为这是国王的指令,他不能违抗。

Roy是王子,却也是个囚徒。

他的母后早逝,十岁时父王也死于战争,王位从此被恶毒狡猾的叔叔——也就是现在的国王霸占着。

国王没有除掉Roy,是因为Roy的超能力——他能预见未来发生的事。

Roy只要盯着一个人的头顶看一会儿,他眼前就会慢慢浮现未来的情景。至于能看到多久以后的事,短则一个时辰,长则十年,这取决于上帝想让他看到多少。

 

But Roy can never manage to see his own future. 

He once tried by staring at the mirror for hours, yet nothing happened. It was alsouseless by watching his own picture.

And finally he accepted this truth.

 

但Roy从来看不到自己的未来。

他曾经试着盯着镜子看了几个小时,结果什么也没发生。看自己的照片也是徒劳无功。

最后他只能接受这个事实了。

 

Roy found he has such power after his father’s death.

To be exact, after the arrival of Doudou[1]—a lovely poodle presented by the Mayor, Mr. Yick. Mr. Yick gave the puppy for Roy’s company at thefuneral of the formal King.

Doudou is very cute, but he seems a little strange[2]. His fur is brown,and his hair is cut like a bear.

 

Roy是在他父王去世后发现自己的这项特异能力的。

确切地说,是在嘟嘟的到来之后。嘟嘟是一只可爱的贵宾犬,是市长Yick先生送给他的礼物。Yick先生在先王的葬礼上将小狗送给Roy作伴。

嘟嘟很可爱,但他看起来有些奇怪。他的皮毛是棕色的,发型被剪得很像一只小熊。

[1.法语中“Doudou”与汉语的“嘟嘟”发音非常相近,所以取了这个名;2.那时候还没有泰迪犬,所以嘟嘟在当时看起来有点奇怪。]

 

Doudou didn't bark nor even make any noise for several days. Roy thought maybe he needed to care the dog first.

“You look special. Do you have name?” Roy tantalized the puppy with his finger.

“Yes. I'm Doudou.” The puppy answered!

“How could this be?!” Roy jumped up and screamed. “You are a dog!”

“I am not a dog.” Doudou continued. “Not a normal dog.”

“Then who you are?”

“I am the courier of God, to guide you and help you.”

“Why me? What does Jesus want me to do?” Roy still found it hard to believe.

“Calm down, my Selected Prince. Squat down and close your eyes.”

The puppy's words had a magic force that drove Roy to follow Doudou's instruction.

Then Doudou put his front paw on Roy's head and stared chanting incantation.

Roy felt a gust of power swept through his body. 

 

嘟嘟好几天都没有吠,甚至一点声音都没发出。Roy觉得它可能是需要他的主动关心。

“你看起来好特别呀。有名字吗?”Roy用手指逗弄嘟嘟。

“有的,我叫嘟嘟。”那小狗居然回答了!

“怎么可能?!”Roy跳起来尖叫道,“你是只狗呀!”

“我不是狗。”嘟嘟继续道,“不是只普通的狗。”

“那你是谁?”

“我是上帝的信使,是来指引你和帮助你的。”

“为什么选中我呢?上帝要我做什么?”Roy还是觉得很难接受。

“冷静点,你是被选中的王子。蹲下然后闭上眼睛。”

那只小狗的声音有种神奇的力量驱使着Roy听他的指示。

接着嘟嘟将它的前爪放在了Roy头上并开始念咒语。

Roy感觉到有股力量在身体里涌动。

 

“Now open your eyes. Look out through the window and stare at the head of one person. Tell me what you see.”

Roy stood up and went near the window. Outside his palace was a garden. There were gardeners busy working. 

Roy saw a scene emerged on a gardener head: he went to drink after work, and was hitby a carriage since his was so drunk. Roy described what he'd seen and asked Doudou why would he see this.

“It is God's gift. You can know others future from now on.”

“Everyone's?”

“Everyone but two. You cannot see the future of you and another man who's very important to you.”

“Who'sthat man?”

“You don't need to know now. You would know when the timing comes. You can feel that.”

……

 

“睁开眼吧,透过窗子盯着一个人的头看,然后告诉我你看到了什么。

Roy站起身来,走到窗边。他宫殿外是一片花园,花园里园丁在忙碌着。

在一个园丁的头顶上,Roy看到了这样一幅情景:那个园丁在工作结束后去喝酒了,后来因为醉得厉害的被一辆马车撞了。Roy描述了他的所见然后问为什么他会看到这个。

“这是上帝给你的礼物。从今以后你就可以看到别人的未来了。”

“每个人的吗?”

“除了两个人。你不能看到你自己还有另一个对你非常重要的人的未来。”

“那人是谁?”

“你现在不用知道。时机到时你自己会知道,你能感觉到的。”

……

 

The carriage stops at the gate of the arena. Roy is led to the royal box as usual.

The King points at a chair, signaling Roy to sit beside him.

“Today's show will be excellent. Concentrate.”

Roy doesn't reply. One of the reasons why he hates this show is that he has topredict the outcome for his uncle, so he has to face those bloody killing spectacle.

So sometimes he really hates his super power.

 

马车停在了竞技场门口,Roy像往常一样被带到了贵宾席。

国王指着一张椅子,示意Roy坐在他身边。

“今天的演出将会非常精彩。集中精神。”

Roy没有回答。他讨厌这个演出的其中一个原因就是他得帮国王预测角斗的结果,所以不得不面对那些血腥的杀戮场面。

所以有时候他真的很讨厌自己的这项超能力。
