Martial Peak Chapter 1: Sweeping the floor.

Published:

天蒙蒙亮,杨开就醒了,稍微洗漱一番便拿着墙角边的扫帚走出了独居的小屋。

When the sky was getting bright, Yang Kai woke up, after a little washing, he took the broom by the corner and walked out of the lonely house.

  站在门口伸了个懒腰,看了一眼天际边浮现的一抹鱼肚白,闭目凝神享受了片刻的安宁,随即睁开眼帘舞动起手上的扫帚,埋头清理着地面的灰尘和落叶。

   stood at the door stretched out, glanced at the whiteness of the fish belly that emerged from the sky, closed my eyes and enjoyed a moment of peace, then opened my eyes and danced the broom in my hand, burying my head in cleaning the dust and fallen leaves on the ground .

  一袭青衣,朴素干净,老成的衣色平白将少年衬托的虚长几岁。杨开的腰杆如标枪一般挺得笔直,即便是在做着最底层的活,脸庞上的神色也一丝不苟。动作很沉稳,捏着扫把的双手并未用多大力,身子甚至都没多大摆动,只凭着手腕的转动,那扫把便如臂使指,莜来乎去,随着他步伐的移动,地面上积攒的灰尘和杂物神奇地跟着动了起来,仿佛平白长了两条腿。

   dressed in Tsing Yi, plain and clean, the old-fashioned clothes are plain and white to set off how many years old the boy is. Yang Kai’s waist was as straight as a javelin, and even when he was doing the lowest level of work, the look on his face was meticulous. The movements were very calm, the hands holding the broom didn’t use much force, and the body didn’t even swing much. With just the turning of the wrist, the broom was like a finger with an arm. The dust and debris accumulated on the surface magically moved, as if two legs had grown in vain.

  杨开是凌霄阁的试炼弟子,三年前进宗门开始修炼,可直到如今也只修炼到淬体三层境界。与他一同入门的师兄弟们早就远远超过这个阶段,各得机缘拜入门中高人座下飞黄腾达去了,他却只能望洋兴叹。

   Yang Kai is a trial disciple of the Lingxiao Pavilion. He has advanced to the sect and started practicing for three years, but he has only cultivated to the third level of body tempering until now. The brothers who started with him have already surpassed this stage a long time ago, and each had the opportunity to worship the middle and high seat of the introductory middle and high class to fly to Huang Tengda, but he could only sigh.

  三年淬体三层,这等资质已经不是用普通二字可以形容的了,简直可以说是平庸至极。

   Three years of body tempering in three years, this kind of qualifications can no longer be described in ordinary words, it can be said to be mediocre.

  没奈何,杨开只能在宗门内接了个扫地的活,一边维持生计一边苦苦修炼。

   Helplessly, Yang Kai could only take a sweeping job in the sect, and practice hard while maintaining his livelihood.

  凌霄阁是个比较特殊的门派,这个特殊体现在门下弟子竞争的残酷上,在这个门派内,有能力者上位,没能力者淘汰,弱肉强食这个铁律在凌霄阁内被演绎的淋漓尽致。

   The Lingxiao Pavilion is a relatively special school. This particularity is reflected in the cruel competition among the disciples under the school. In this school, the capable people are in the top position, the incompetent are eliminated, and the iron rule of the weak eating the weak is vividly deduced in the Lingxiao Pavilion.

  其他的宗门或许还有些同门友情手足情谊,但是在凌霄阁内没有!想往上爬,唯有踩着那些所谓的师兄弟们的肩膀,踏过他们的鲜血,如此才有资格。

  The other sects may have some friendship and brotherhood, but they are not in the Lingxiao Pavilion! If you want to climb up, you can only be qualified if you step on the shoulders of the so-called brothers and step on their blood.

  凌霄阁门下制严,在整个大汉朝都是赫赫有名,虽算不得什么超级大派,可门下弟子的争斗之残酷却是首屈一指的!也正因如此,弟子们个个武风彪悍,外出行走江湖之时鲜有人敢招惹。

   The strict rules under the Lingxiao Pavilion are well-known throughout the Han Dynasty. Although it is not a super genre, the cruelty of the disciples’ fighting is second to none! Because of this, the disciples are all sturdy martial arts, and few people dare to provoke them when they go out and walk the rivers and lakes.

  凌霄阁有个规矩,十四岁以下弟子,无论是谁,从入门起,三年内算是试炼期。这三年时间,吃住穿行皆由宗门负责,弟子只管修炼便可。三年时间内若能突破淬体期,便有资格拜入宗中高手门下为徒,让这些高手教导修炼,当然,也可以不拜师自己修炼,但是修炼一途,有良师教导和自己摸索那是截然不同的。在某种程度上来说,凌霄阁这个规矩倒有些自由。

   There is a rule in the Lingxiao Pavilion that disciples under the age of fourteen, no matter who they are, three years from the beginning is a trial period. During these three years, the sect was responsible for all meals, accommodation, and transportation, and the disciples could just cultivate. If you can break through the tempering period within three years, you are eligible to join the masters of the sect as apprentices, and let these masters teach you the practice. Of course, you can also practice without a teacher. Is completely different. To a certain extent, Lingxiao Pavilion’s rules are somewhat free.

  而那些三年内没突破淬体期的人,要么离开宗门,要么被贬为试炼弟子。

   Those who have not broken through the tempering stage within three years will either leave the sect or be demoted as trial disciples.

  试炼弟子,便是杨开现在的身份!也是凌霄阁内的耻辱!

   Trial disciple is Yang Kai’s current identity! It is also a shame in the High Heaven Pavilion!

  和普通弟子不同,试炼弟子的生存环境更为苛刻,因为走到这一步,吃穿住行都要自己打理,宗门不会再往你身上浪费任何一份修炼资源。而一旦被贬为试炼弟子,基本上此生就永无出头之日了,除非在短时间内实力大幅度上涨,另宗门觉得你有可以投入的资本。

  Different from ordinary disciples, the living environment of trial disciples is more demanding, because at this point, you have to take care of food, clothing, housing and transportation by yourself, and the sect will not waste any cultivation resources on you. Once you are demoted as a trial disciple, you will basically never have a head start in this life. Unless your strength rises sharply in a short period of time, the other sect thinks that you have the capital you can invest in.

  整个凌霄阁三千弟子,而试炼弟子有几人?不过十指之数!杨开有幸成为其中一人!

   The entire Lingxiao Pavilion has three thousand disciples, but how many disciples are there in the trial? But ten fingers! Yang Kai is fortunate to be one of them!

  试炼弟子想在凌霄阁内活下去,简直难如登天,就比如说杨开现在居住的小屋,那是他自己一根木头一根木头搭建起来的,小屋顶上破了几个洞都没时间打理,一到下雨天屋内便积水难排。他的衣服是自己买的,他吃的东西是自己弄的,所有的一切都是自己负责。

   Trial disciples want to survive in the Lingxiao Pavilion. It’s as difficult as climbing to the sky. For example, Yang Kai’s hut now lives in. It was built by himself, one by one, with a few broken roofs. I don’t have time to take care of the cave, and when it rains, water accumulates in the house. He bought his clothes, he made his own food, and he was responsible for everything.

  就连小屋的位置,也在凌霄阁最偏僻最无人问津的地方。

  Even the location of the hut is in the most remote and unattended place of Lingxiao Pavilion.

  如此糟糕的待遇,一般人很难忍受的下去,这也是凌霄阁试炼弟子数量之少的缘故,基本上过了试炼期没有突破淬体境界的弟子,都会选择离开凌霄阁这一条路,可是杨开留下来了。

   Such a terrible treatment is difficult for ordinary people to bear. This is also due to the small number of disciples in the Lingxiao Pavilion trial. Basically, the disciples who have not broken through the body tempering state after the trial period will choose to leave the road of Lingxiao Pavilion. But Yang Kai stayed.

  已经被人扫地出门过一次,这一次又怎能如此?

   has been swept out once, how can it be this time?

  几个月前被贬为试炼弟子之后,杨开便在宗门内接了个扫地的活维持自己的生计。

   After being demoted to a trial disciple a few months ago, Yang Kai took a sweeping job in the sect to maintain his livelihood.

  可以说杨开现在既是凌霄阁的试炼弟子,也是凌霄阁的扫地小厮。但这扫地的活,有时候也无法维持杨开的温饱,时不时地饥一顿饱一顿,风寒无人过问,日子过的凄苦伶仃。纵然如此,杨开也没有打过退堂鼓,人生在世,数十年华,自己选择了这条路,就要一直走下去,半途而废可不是男人所为。

   It can be said that Yang Kai is now not only the trial disciple of the Lingxiao Pavilion, but also the sweeping servant of the Lingxiao Pavilion. But this sweeping work, sometimes unable to maintain Yang Kai’s food and clothing, from time to time, he was hungry and full, and the wind and cold were unaffected, and the life was miserable. Even so, Yang Kai has never retired. He is alive, decades old, and he has chosen this path, so he has to keep going. It is not a man’s work to give up halfway.

  杨开有一股韧性,不撞南墙不回头的韧性!

   Yang Kai has a resilience, the resilience of not hitting the south wall and not looking back!

  天渐渐亮了起来,杨开扫了一会地,所过之处干干净净,杂尘清扫一空。

   The sky gradually brightened, and Yang Kai swept the ground for a while, and everything he passed by was clean and dusty.

  扫地虽然不废什么力气,可一大早没吃没喝就动了这么久,杨开也是浑身冒着虚汗,这跟实力无关,完全是因为体质太差了。

   Although I didn’t waste any effort to sweep the floor, he moved for so long without eating or drinking early in the morning. Yang Kai was also sweating all over his body. This had nothing to do with his strength, it was entirely because of his poor physique.

  三餐中有两餐饥,任谁处在杨开这个生活环境中,体质都不会好。

   There are two hungry meals out of three meals. No matter who lives in the environment of Yang Kai, his physique will not be good.

  身边渐渐围拢了一些凌霄阁的弟子,这些弟子个个都起了个大早,不去修炼却围在杨开的身边,很多人都饶有兴致地打量着杨开,更有人的目光甚是贪婪,就仿佛杨开现在是个一丝不挂的大美女,香气逼人的香饽饽。

   gradually surrounded some disciples of the Lingxiao Pavilion. These disciples all got up early, and they were surrounded by Yang Kai when they didn’t go to practice. Many people looked at Yang Kai with interest, and even more people looked at him. Very greedy, as if Yang Kai is now a naked beauty, with a compelling fragrance.

  而这些围聚在杨开身边的凌霄阁弟子之间,也有一股紧张竞争的气氛在蔓延,警惕地打量着身边的师兄弟们,一个个面色不善。

   And among the Lingxiao Pavilion disciples who gathered around Yang Kai, there was also an atmosphere of tense competition spreading, and they looked vigilantly at the brothers around them, all of them looked bad.

  人群中有人面露不忍,轻声道:“这么多人,有些过分了啊。”

   Someone in the crowd showed their faces and whispered softly: “There are so many people, it’s a bit too much.”

  当下便有人回道:“你觉得人多也可以走啊,没人要你留下来。”

   Right now someone replied: “You can leave if there are too many people. No one wants you to stay.”

  一句话便让那人讪讪不言,大家都知道为什么聚集在这里,都知道为什么要盯着杨开,现在就是在等那一刻的到来。时限马上就要到了,现在离去岂不是太可惜?若能抢了头筹,今日就又是一笔收获呀。

   just one sentence made the man confuse, everyone knows why they are gathered here, and everyone knows why they are staring at Yang Kai, now they are waiting for that moment to come. The time limit is coming soon, isn’t it a pity to leave now? If you can grab the top spot, today will be another gain.

  周旁的动静杨开自然是知道的,只不过他的神色一直未曾变过。这样的阵仗自己每五天就要经历一次,一个月六次,实在没什么好大惊小怪的,而且看眼前这人数也略少了一些,应该是还没全到的缘故。

   Yang Kai naturally knows the movement around the week, but his expression has never changed. I have to go through this kind of battle every five days, six times a month. It’s really nothing to make a fuss about, and the number of people in front of me is slightly less, probably because it hasn’t arrived yet.

  所以他一直在扫地,对周旁之人不管不问,一路走一路扫。

   So he has been sweeping the floor, regardless of people around the week, sweeping all the way.

  随着时间的流逝,聚集在杨开身边的人越来越多,粗略估计至少也有三四十人之多。

  With the passage of time, more and more people gathered around Yang Kai. It is roughly estimated that there are at least 30 or 40 people.

  杨开突然停了下来,就这么坐在道路中央,缓缓地吸了一口气,恢复着自己大清早消耗的体力。

  Yang Kai stopped suddenly, just sat in the middle of the road, took a slow breath, and recovered the strength he had expended early in the morning.

  一看这动静,围聚在杨开身边的所有人立马散开,团团将他包围在中间,紧张竞争的气氛陡然拔升到一个新的境界,仿佛连空气都不再流动了。

   Upon seeing this movement, everyone gathered around Yang Kai immediately dispersed, surrounded him in groups, and the atmosphere of intense competition suddenly rose to a new level, as if even the air was no longer flowing.

  谁也看谁不顺眼,却都期待无比的望着杨开。

   Everyone sees who is not pleasing to the eye, but they all look forward to Yang Kai very much.

  若叫不明真相的人看到此景,只怕会以为被包围在人群中的是个绝顶高手,要不然怎会出动如此多的人数来对付他?可实际上,杨开只是个淬体境三层的试炼弟子而已,在场的任何一个人都要比杨开厉害。

   If someone who does not know the truth sees this scene, they will think that the person surrounded by the crowd is a super master. Otherwise, how can they send so many people to deal with him? But in fact, Yang Kai was just a trial disciple of the third-tier body tempering realm, and anyone present was better than Yang Kai.

  “杨开,你就别费心思了,等会乖乖的叫我等揍趴下,大家也省时间不是?”有人看杨开这样子,顿时有些不屑了。

   “Yang Kai, don’t bother to worry about it. You’ll be obediently telling me to wait and get down. Everyone will save time?” Someone suddenly felt a little disdainful when they saw Yang Kai like this.

  区区一个淬体三层还恢复做什么?反正都是要输,倒不如干脆一些,何必如此苟延残喘?

  A three-layer quenching body is still restored, what do you do? Anyway, it’s all about losing, so why don’t you stay so lingering?

  “是啊是啊,杨开你好歹也体谅一下诸位师兄弟的心情啊,大家跟你可不一样,打完这一场我们还要去修炼呢。”

   “Yes, yeah, Yang Kai, at any rate, please be considerate of the feelings of fellow apprentices. Everyone is different from you. We have to practice after this game.”

  这话说的,好似杨开就应该被他们快速击败,搞的杨开现在恢复体力也象是对他们的不敬了。

  ’s words, it seems that Yang Kai should be quickly defeated by them, and Yang Kai who was involved in regaining his strength now seems to be disrespectful to them.

  杨开置若罔闻,犹如老僧入定。

   Yang Kai turned a deaf ear, just like an old monk entering Dhyana.

  时间继续流逝,蓦然,一声悠扬空旷的钟声响起,那是凌霄阁的晨钟,钟声传入所有人的耳中,围聚在杨开身边的弟子们齐齐精神一震。

   Time continued to pass, and suddenly, a melodious and empty bell rang. It was the morning bell of the Lingxiao Pavilion. The sound of the bell reached everyone’s ears, and the disciples gathered around Yang Kai were shocked.

  钟响九声,东方旭日升起,又是新的一天!

   the bell rings nine times, the eastern sun rises, and it’s a new day!

  众人的呼吸陡然平息下去,眼巴巴地瞅着被围在中间的杨开,杨开缓缓起身,提着手上的扫把,淡淡地扫了一眼身边的一圈人。

   The breathing of everyone suddenly subsided, and he gazed at Yang Kai who was surrounded by him. Yang Kai slowly got up, held the broom in his hand, and glanced lightly at the circle of people around him.

  “选我啊杨师兄!”有人高声喊道,“我下手很轻的,保证打的你不痛!”

   “Choose me, Brother Yang!” Someone shouted, “I’m very light, I promise you won’t hurt you!”

  “放屁!选我,我会给你个痛快,一拳就结束,绝对不浪费大家时间。”

   “Fart! Choose me, I will give you a happy one, and it will be over with one punch, absolutely not wasting everyone’s time.”

  “选我……”

   “Choose me…”

  “选我……”

   “Choose me…”

  场中一片闹哄哄的,就如市场上的菜贩在推销自己田地里的蔬菜,还比拼着谁更新鲜。

   There is a lot of noisy in the market, just like a vegetable vendor in the market selling the vegetables in his field, and comparing who is fresher.

  “杨开,你可莫坏了自己定下的规矩!”有人提醒出声。

   “Yang Kai, don’t you break the rules you set!” someone reminded.

  杨开轻笑,随手将拿着的扫把往天上一抛,几十双眼睛齐齐朝上看去,满是期待地等待扫把落地的瞬间,心中一个劲地祈祷着:“选我,选我!”

   Yang Kai chuckled lightly, and threw the broom he was holding into the sky, dozens of pairs of eyes looked up together, waiting expectantly for the moment when the broom landed, and he kept praying in his heart: “Choose me , Choose me!”

  时间仿佛变缓,扫把在半空中打了几个转,旋即落下,在地面上弹了弹,定格不动。

   Time seemed to slow down, the broom swung a few times in mid-air, then fell down, bounced on the ground, and stopped moving.

  扫把的前头,指向人群中一位身形魁梧的少年。

   The front of the broom pointed at a burly teenager in the crowd.

  一片惋惜声响起,满是幽怨和不甘。反倒是那魁梧少年,哈哈一笑走出人群,抱拳冲众人笑道:“诸位师兄弟~IndoMTL.com~今日这一战小弟拿下了,还望诸位师兄弟莫怪。”

   There was a sound of regret, full of resentment and unwillingness. On the contrary, it was the burly boy who walked out of the crowd with a laugh, clasped his fists and smiled at everyone: “Brothers~ IndoMTL.com~ I won this battle today. I hope you can’t blame the brothers.”

  “草,狗屎运!”有人嫉妒不已。

   “Grass, **** luck!” Someone was jealous.

  “怎么就选不到我呢,老子每五天都来一次,来了足足一个月了,杨开你故意的吧?”

   “Why can’t you choose me? Lao Tzu comes once every five days. It’s been a full month, Yang Kai, did you deliberately?”

  “别提了,我来了三个月了,一次都没被选到过!”

   “Don’t mention it, I have been here for three months, and I have never been selected once!”

  “师兄,你比我惨啊。”

  ”Brother, you are worse than me.”

  “不惨不惨,看好戏便是。”两师兄弟对视一眼,心领神会地笑了。

   “It’s not miserable, it’s not miserable, it’s a good show.” The two brothers looked at each other and smiled intently.

  场中,其他人已经散开,只留下杨开和魁梧少年互相对视。

  In the field, the others have dispersed, leaving only Yang Kai and the burly boy looking at each other.

  “试炼弟子杨开,淬体三层!”杨开望着对方道。

  ”Training disciple Yang Kai, body tempering three levels!” Yang Kai looked at the other side.

  “普通弟子周定军,淬体五层!”魁梧少年自报家门。

   “Ordinary disciple Zhou Dingjun, body tempered five floors!” The burly boy reported himself to his family.

  凌霄阁的弟子也是分等级层次的,从下往上便是试炼弟子,普通弟子,座下弟子,精英弟子,核心弟子五大等级。周定军说自己是普通弟子,那便是还未拜入宗中高手门下,未得良师指点。若是突破淬体期拜入宗中高手门下,便是更高一级的座下弟子了。再高一级的精英弟子,个个都是出类拔萃,是从座下弟子中选拔上来的。

   The disciples of the Lingxiao Pavilion are also divided into levels. From bottom to top, there are five levels: trial disciples, ordinary disciples, seat disciples, elite disciples, and core disciples. Zhou Dingjun said that he is an ordinary disciple, that is, he has not yet come to the master of the sect, and he has not received guidance from a mentor. If you break through the body tempering period and worship the master of the sect, you will be a higher-level disciple. The elite disciples at the next higher level are all outstanding, selected from among the disciples under the seat.

  而核心弟子,则是凌霄阁下一代的希望,宗内可是将这些人当成未来的接班人来培养的。

   And the core disciples are the hope of the next generation of Lingxiao Pavilion, but the clan uses these people as future successors to train them.

  森然的弟子等级制度,看似不近人情,可却能很好地激发年轻人的血性和竞争意识,这也是凌霄阁残酷制度的根基。

  The disciple hierarchy of    may seem unkind, but it can well inspire the blood and competitive consciousness of young people. This is also the foundation of the cruel system of Lingxiao Pavilion.

  而让杨开被无数人争抢局面的根本原因,则是凌霄阁的另外一个规矩了,挑战的规矩。

   And the fundamental reason why Yang Kai was scrambled by countless people was another rule of Lingxiao Pavilion, the rule of challenge.
