“Three hundred and two silver, two hundred kilograms of rice, twenty pounds of fresh meat, three hundred pounds of bacon and all kinds of fruits and vegetables, three sets of wide-sleeve robes, crowns, shoes and socks, a pair of copper Raising Qi Furnace… ”

    “纹银三百两,米谷五百斤,鲜肉二十斤,腌肉和各类蔬果三百斤,上好宽袖道袍、冠带、鞋袜各三套,紫铜养气炉一只……”

    张衍看着手中这份清单,除了这些东西之外,另有一些散碎日用物件不在其中,他暗叹闵楼好手笔,这些粮食即便放开手脚来吃,也足够他吃上整整一年的,可以说是彻底解决了自己的燃眉之急。

In all fairness, if you want to interpret the value of Dao Scripture today, you can’t sell the price. Even if you go to the High Master, you can’t use it.

    不过考虑到这里面还有闵楼刻意结交的因素在内,张衍也不矫情,全数收下,只是这个人情却是结结实实承受了下来。

However, considering that there is also Min Lou’s intentional relationship, Zhang Yan is not ruthless, and all of them are accepted, but this person’s feelings are actually bearing down.

    沉思了一会儿,他写下一封书信,寻了一个杂事道童过来,嘱咐他改日采买时顺便送下山去。

After pondering for a while, he wrote a Letter and found a chores, Dao Child, and he sent him down the hill when he bought it.

    将所有东西安置妥当后,张衍闭门打坐,“一气清经”虽然只是入门心法,但修炼之道,如逆水行舟,不进则退,他更是深知基础的重要,穿越来这么多天来,却没有哪怕片刻放松。

Nothing in the night.

    第二日辰时初刻,他依旧去了千丈岩那处凉亭,却意外发现早早有人在那里等候。

At the beginning of the second day, he still went to the pavilion at Qianzhangyan, but he unexpectedly found someone waiting there early.

    这人三十出头,却两鬓微白,眉目间略见憔悴之色,手掌中还托着一只楠木书匣,他远远望见到手持竹幡的张衍走来,赶忙匆匆上来一礼,道:“可是张衍张师兄?”

Zhang Yan is determined to be modest and courteous: “precisely.”

    “在下德修观赵元,闻听张师兄擅解蚀文,特以来此求教。”

“Under the Cultivating Virtue Temple Zhao Yuan, I heard that Senior Brother Zhang is acquainted with Eclipse Canon, and I have been asking for advice.”

    赵元将手中木匣打开,露出一本薄薄道书,他仿佛怕碰损这本道书,轻手轻脚地取出,再捧至张衍面前,恭敬道:“若能解在下心中疑惑,必不亏待师兄。”

Zhao Yuan opened the raft in his hand to reveal a thin Dao Scripture. He seemed to be afraid of damaging the Dao Scripture, took it out lightly, and then took it to Zhang Yan. He respectfully said: “If you can solve your doubts in your heart, Must not be treated with Senior Brother.”

    张衍看赵元对这本书视若珍宝的模样,又看了一眼那只精心打造的楠木盒,微微一笑,将手中竹幡靠在一边,从袖子取出一块白帕擦了擦手,这才将这道书接过来。

Seeing Zhang Yan’s move, Zhao Yuan couldn’t help but feel a bit of a good impression on him.

    书一入手,张衍略略一翻,便发现这本道书只有上册而无下册,显然是不愿让他看全,这也在是情理之中的事,他笑了笑,又将道书交还给了赵元。

When the book started, Zhang Yan turned it over and found that the Dao Scripture had only the first volume and no book. Obviously, he did not want him to see the whole. This is also a matter of reason. He smiled and Dao again. Scripture was returned to Zhao Yuan.

    赵元脸色一变,急道:“张师兄,莫非有甚不妥?或是……”他语声一顿,狐疑地看了张衍几眼,难道是闵楼对张衍能力有所夸大,其实对方根本无法解读这本道书?

Zhang Yan shook her head and smiled. “Senior Brother is in a hurry. This book is in my heart.”

    这半部道册不过区区数百字,现在他的记性越来越好,又精研蚀文数年,自然看一遍就记住了,而且他还要靠这个来宣扬自己的名声,当是要摆出一副高人姿态。

“Oh?” Zhao Yuan was taken aback, but there were some doubts in the look.

    张衍不疾不徐走入凉亭,将背后竹篓中的笔墨纸砚摆到石桌上,从容坐定后,这才提笔写字。

Zhang Yan neither too fast nor too slow Enter the gazebo and put the pen and ink in the bamboo raft on the stone table. After sitting calmly, this will be written.

    他刚才就看出,这本名为《永川行水书》的道书,其实只是一本仙游杂记,对他来说没什么难度,不多时,就将这半册道书解读出来。

He just saw that the Dao Scripture, titled “Yongchuan Xingshui Book”, is actually just a fairy tale, which is not difficult for him. In a short time, he will interpret this half-page Dao Scripture.

    还没等墨迹干透,赵元就急急将那几页纸抓在手里,迫不及待看了起来,初看的时候他还满含期冀,可是没多久,他脸色就越来越差,翻来覆去看几遍之后,他颓然长叹一声,道:“原本我还不信,没想到果真如此,枉我还花了偌大心思……也是,妙法真籍,我辈哪里能随意看到,我今番也是蒙了心窍啊!”

Zhang Yan said with amazement: “What about the Senior Brother?”

    赵元面露苦涩之意,道:“师弟你也知道我等记名弟子修道艰难,便是那些衣食丰足,金玉满堂之家也要时不时给那些恶奴上些供奉,才能求得些许法门,不瞒张师弟,前日里观中卞师兄说若寻得一斤滟沉沙,便允我一本道书,哪知道……唉!”

Zhao Yuan reveals the meaning of bitterness and says: “Junior Brother, you also know that I have to wait for the honor disciple path of cultivation. It is the food and clothing. The house of Jin Yu Man Tang also has to offer some sacrifices to the evil slaves from time to time. Technique, I don’t know Junior Brother Zhang. In the previous day, Senior Brother Bian said that if I found a pound of Sinking Billows Sand, I would like to have a Dao Scripture, knowing… Hey!”

    张衍顿时了然,无论是善渊观还是德修观,抑或是泰安观,真正的入门弟子都只有区区十数人,他们平日是潜心修炼,日常杂事都交给身边管事操办,这些人虽说是管事,可却不要小看他们,他们也挂着记名弟子的名头。入门弟子平日解读道册之后总会留下些手抄本,这些仆役暗暗抄录一些,分卖给记名弟子或者一些向往修仙的富贵人家,从中渔利。

Most of the Dao Scripture circulated between Three Great Lower Academies is like this.

    赵元虽然家中累世经商,算得上殷实人家,但是和那些王公贵族比起来还是差远了。

Although Zhao Yuan is a business man in the family, he is considered to be a good family, but it is still far worse than those of the royal family.

    张衍之前所顾忌的对象,正是这些“豪奴”,这些人能量大,多数又和入门弟子有勾连,一般弟子是绝对招惹不起的,坑了你也白坑。

Zhang Yan’s objection before, precisely these “hono”, these people are very energetic, and most of them are linked with the common disciple. Generally, the Disciple is absolutely inconvenient, and you are also pitted.

    这次也是赵元求道心切,听闻某位入门弟子正在四处搜寻五行神沙,愿意拿出几本“正宗道书”供众位师兄弟参详,他一狠心,便搭上了此人管事的门路,不但奉上了一斤水月滟沉沙,还顺手还送去了大堆财帛,以求获得一本真籍宝录。

This time, Zhao Yuan asked Dao Heart to cut. He heard that a common disciple was searching for Five Elements Divine Sand. He was willing to come up with several “Authentic Dao Scripture” for the Martial Brothers. He took this person with his heart. The door to the management, not only served a pound of Sinking Billows Sand, but also sent a lot of money, in order to obtain a real book.

    赵元本来以为这本“道书”定然是仙家妙法,没想回来一翻,发现只是一本游记方志,比寻常练气术还要不如,心中不禁大为懊悔,但又唯恐是自家推演蚀文出错,数月之内,他又花费大批钱财陆续请教了几名入门弟子,结论都是一般无二,正绝望之际,在闵楼那里听闻张衍在蚀文解读上颇为了得,他也是病急乱投医,不甘心之下又拿了半本道书过来请教张衍。

“Up the mountain for six years, today’s calculations have failed. I want to come to Profound Sect. It is better to go back to my hometown to do business.”

    赵元已有三十八岁,眼见修道艰难,屡受挫折,不免灰心丧气,有了下山的心思,他看着那半部道书,不由怒从心头起,一把抓在手中正要一撕两半。

Zhao Yuan looked up.

    张衍看着赵元,沉声道:“若师兄信得过我,可否将此书下册与我观看?”

Zhang Yan looks at Zhao Yuan, said solemnly: “If Senior Brother can trust me, can you read this book with my point of view?”

    赵元听出张衍话中有话,犹豫了一下,道:“师兄何意?”

Zhao Yuan heard Zhang Yan’s words, he hesitant, and said, “What about the Senior Brother?”

    张衍诚恳说道:“恕我直言,蚀文道书讲究浑然一体,前后映照,贸然分开徒然不解其意,方才我观此书,有些地方还颇有玄妙,或许……”

Zhang Yan said: “My blunt words, Eclipse Canon Dao Scripture is all about one, before and after, rushing apart in vain, just my point of view this book, some places are quite mysterious, maybe…”

    “哦?”赵元瞪大了眼睛望着张衍,似乎有些明白了张衍话中的意思,浑身不自觉颤抖了起来,“难,难道……”

Zhang Yan smiled and said: “Do your best, listen to your destiny.”

    赵元咬咬牙,站起身一跺脚,道:“好,我便与师兄一观!”他本来已经绝了这门心思,可是张衍的话又让他看到了一丝希望,尽管依旧非常渺茫,但他又怎么舍得轻易放手?

Zhao Yuan bit his teeth and stood up and said, “Okay, I will look at the Senior Brother!” He had already had this thought, but Zhang Yan’s words made him see a little hope, even though he was still very embarrassed. But how can he be willing to let go?

    看着赵元急急而去,张衍起身踱步,曼吟道:“古有永郡,又名川德,地势高隆,八水汇聚,如卧虎盘岗,南望东洲,又如潜龙俯滩,欲入北海……”这几句话他越读越觉得很可能有什么暗指,本来他也只当这本书只是一本游记,只是刚才赵元说到有缘无缘,他突然想起道门前辈一向喜欢摆弄玄虚,增设心障,说不定里面还有什么自己没有发现的玄机。

Less than an hour, Zhao Yuan rushed back in a panting breath. He didn’t say a word, and pulled a Dao Scripture from his arms and stuffed it into Zhang Yan.

    张衍点点头,不紧不慢坐下翻阅,赵元紧张地看着他的面庞,心下患得患失,不过张衍一直表情平淡,看不出丝毫端倪。

After reading the entire book, Zhang Yan’s heart is secretly thought: “Sure!”

    这次他十分肯定,有龙有虎,分明是说坎离交汇,八水则代指八脉,行水即是行脉!

This time, he is very certain that there are dragons and tigers. It is clear that the stagnation is the intersection, and the eight waters refer to the eight veins.

    整部道书所用的蚀文极是粗浅,哪怕是资质愚钝的人都能看懂一二,偏偏又将上乘的筑元法诀用游记的方式写出,但如果不是真心研读,道心常在的人,还真是会错漏过去,这位仙师可谓用意深远。

Just now he is thinking about another issue.

    是否要告诉赵元呢?

Do you want to tell Zhao Yuan?

    按理说,就算推说此是游记无疑,赵元也拿他毫无办法,还不至于引起他人注意。

It stands to reason that even if it is said that this is a travel note, Zhao Yuan has no way to take him, and it will not attract attention.

    不过转念一想,这只是一本筑元道书而已,眼下虽然难得,但与漫漫修道之途一比,那就什么也算不上了,这样做既没有好处又阻人向道的事,他是不会干的。

However, in retrospect, this is just a Building Origin Dao Scripture. Although it is rare at present, but compared with the long path of cultivation, then nothing can be considered. This is neither good nor destructive. He will not do anything.

    张衍缓缓抬起头来,双手一拱,微笑道:“恭喜赵兄了,《永川行水书》实为《永川行脉法》,实是一本不可多得的筑元道书!”

Zhao Yuan’s eyes widened a little and shivered and said: “Really?”

    张衍叹道:“若师兄将两册道书置在一起解读,说不定早已有人看出……”

Zhang Yan sighed: “If the Senior Brother puts two copies of Dao Scripture together, it may already be seen…”

    赵元摇摇头,道:“不然,师兄君子,换了旁人未必会如实告诉赵某,师兄实乃赵某命中贵人也!容赵某一拜。”

He bent down and made a big gift to Zhang Yan.

    张衍赶忙将他扶了起来,道:“这位前辈借水喻气,微言大义,整篇法诀如剖鱼刮鳞般坦呈眼前,甚是难得,师弟我有心一试,不知赵师兄可准我加以修行否?”

Zhang Yan hurriedly helped him up and said: “This predecessor borrowed water and said that the whole secret art is as good as before one’s eyes. It is rare. Junior Brother, I have a heart, I don’t know. Senior Brother Zhao can ask me to cultivation no?”

    赵元一怔,这本道书凭张衍的记忆显然已经全部记下来了,就算暗中修炼他也无可奈何,现在却仍然向他征询,显然这是尊重自己,心下更为感动,连忙道:“哪里哪里,师兄如此说却让小弟羞愧,师兄大德无以为报,此书尽可习得。”

Zhao Yuan, this Dao Scripture has obviously been written down by Zhang Yan’s memory. Even if he is secretly cultivation, he can’t help him. Now he still asks him. Obviously this is respect for himself, and his heart is even more moved. Even hurriedly said “Where, where the Senior Brother said so, the younger brother was ashamed, and the Senior Brother did not think that the book could be learned.”

    他摸摸了身上,觉得原先准备的一囊珍珠似乎拿不出手了,想了想,他从怀中拿出一封纸包,双手递到张衍面前,道:“今日匆忙,未携珍宝,此为五行神沙中的‘玉圭沙’,尚值些许银两,请师兄务必收下,来日还有补报。”

Zhang Yan did not shirk, but took it over and reminded him: “Senior Brother’s mood is ups and downs today, it is not suitable for cultivation.” Since you have done a good person, then you can do it well.

    赵元连忙点头谢过,他望了望张衍,犹豫了一下,上前一步,小声道:“师兄,解读蚀文固然大好,但未免会遭人嫉恨……”

Upon hearing this, Zhang Yan looked a bit serious and seriously said: “Senior Brother don’t have to worry, Junior Brother I have my own plans.”

    赵元点了点头,既然都是明白人,那么话点到为止就可以了,他拱手道:“如需助力,只需师兄开口,赵某力所能及,定不推脱。”再次郑重一礼后,他转身离去。

Zhao Yuan nodded. Since he understood people, then he could do it. He said, “If you need help, just the Senior Brother, Zhao can do what he can, and he will not give up.” Once again, after a solemn ceremony, He turned and left.

    张衍望着对方背影沉思起来,看来赵元也是对自己推心置腹了,刚才那句话不是把他当成至交好友看提也不会提起。

Zhang Yan looked at the other side’s back and thought about it. It seems that Zhao Yuan is also pushing himself to the heart. The sentence just didn’t treat him as a friend.

    解读蚀文看似平常,但实际上却是从那些入门弟子的杂役那里虎口夺食,原本他们先卖道书,再卖解读后的手抄本,可以连着赚上两笔,现在等若给张衍横切一刀,断了一条钱财来路,现在还好说,不过时日一久,必然会引发他们的不快,后果就很难以预料了。

Zhao Yuan’s concerns stem from this.

    要说如今张衍钱粮充足,按照常理,似乎不必再靠解读蚀文谋生了。

However, his plan will be as simple as that!

    他是一个修道者,自然明白只有修为才是根本,赚取钱粮不过是顺手为之,他真正的目的是要藉此吸引善渊观上层的注意。

He is a Dao Cultivator, and naturally understands that only the cultivation base is the foundation. To earn money is just a matter of hand. His real purpose is to attract the attention of the upper level of Profound Virtue Temple.

    张衍在末日世界里混迹了七年,甚至还一度进入了幸存者营地的核心层,他很明白,上层与底层最本质的区别其实只在于两个:一个是对资源的掌控和分配,另一个就是不对称的信息量。

Although this is two different worlds, the truth is common.

    溟沧派作为修道大派,只是下院善渊观内类似他这样的记名弟子就有三百多人,另有杂事道童千多人,可真正的入门弟子只有十多人。

It is true that the more than ten people and the three High Masters in the field mastered all the path of cultivation books.

    善渊观入门弟子一般都在苍梧山第六峰捉月峰修炼,不是熟识的人轻易难得一见。观中上师倒是每月开门讲道,不过没有常年“供奉”,想要获得道门法诀,那也是休想。

That is the name!

    名声一大,即便不能获得某位上师慧眼赏识,也有机会结交入门弟子,一旦进入他们的圈子,那么获得上乘法门的可能性就大多了。

And the ability to interpret Eclipse Canon is his stepping stone.

    在这些人还没有注意到自己之前,他怎么可能停下脚步?

How can he stop before these people have noticed themselves?

    至于可能面临的危险,他微微一笑,如果是往常他肯定不会这么冒险,不过这几日……

As for the dangers that may be faced, he smiled a little. If he used to, he would definitely not take such an adventure, but these days…

    他眯眼朝苍梧山主峰神来峰的方向看了一眼,此正是大好时机!

……
