泅游了數十米,水流把我帶到一處比較淺而平穩的水灣。
                                                                               
"荷...荷...."大口大口的喘氣。
                                                                               
"啊...烏..,.呵...昂..." 想叫它的名字,我的夥伴。
聲音卻發不出來,一大半也是因為震驚之故。
                                                                               
"我在這裡。" 它聲音聽來比我平穩的多,想是因為先掉下來的緣故,而不是勇敢。
                                                                               
                                                                               
又喘息片刻,兩人總算定下神來。
                                                                               
                                                                               
"那到底是什麼?" 我問著這個總是(讓別人覺得) 知識豐富的夥伴。
                                                                               
他的神色,透露的竟是渾不可解,迷惘的灰銀色。
                                                                               
                                                                               
透過頭上遮掩漫天的枝葉蕪蔓,天色漸漸暗的讓我們看見了。
                                                                               
流洩在枝葉和枝葉間,銀白的月流動,
                                                                               
在我的臉上蜘蛛男的臉上盤撥著水紋似的光影,
                                                                               
那和當初頭城海邊的肉色暗紅的月已經太不一樣了。
可是我和蜘蛛一定都沒想那麼多,連月亮都視而不見何況頭城。
                                                                               
                                                                               
纏住我們的問題。
                                                                               
                                                                               
那玩意兒,到底是什麼?
                                                                               
                                                                               
我們,到底在那個洞裡面,看見了什麼?

也不太深,這個洞,大概還不到1坪大小,了不起算是個比較凹的窟窿。
                                                                               
洞底安坐了個,不,不是那麼安安穩穩的坐著,
                                                                               
而是頭下腳上,平整"擺好"的,
                                                                               
一個男子赤裸的屍體!
一具屍體固然值得驚訝,但絕不會令我們兩個驚訝的餘韻未絕地說不出話。
                                                                               
這具屍體有什麼特別之處呢?
                                                                               
第一點就在於,
                                                                               
它沒有手。
                                                                               
在應該是臂膀的位置,空蕩蕩的,被人齊肩削下。
(廢話,有人會自己閒來沒事把手砍下來嘛?)
                                                                               
兩肩空蕩蕩的,各有一個老大的傷口,看得見略呈暗黃色的肩骨,
人肉特有的粉紅色的肌理,以及黃膩膩的脂肪。
                                                                               
血流的不多,起碼在我們驚訝的說不出話來所能觀察的一時片刻之間,
                                                                               
我們觀察不到太多的血跡,不然一進去就得看見。
                                                                               
說明了兩個可能性:
                                                                               
第一,手是死後才切下來的。
第二個可能則是,有人把屍體切割以後再移到這個地方。
                                                                               
                                                                               
這兩個想法,都不是我們泅游上岸的當下所得到的。
                                                                               
我們太驚訝太沒頭緒了。渾身濕淋淋的。
                                                                               
也絕對不是我想的,是蜘蛛男思慮良久才想到的。
關於這具屍體的第二個令人驚訝的點。
                                                                               
是它的"姿態。"
                                                                               
                                                                               
說實在的,從小看金田一和柯男這兩個東京雙煞長大的我,
                                                                               
面對概念化的屍體可是絕不陌生。
屍體僅僅代表了,有人是邪惡的;
而且他將會在短短30分鐘內,被一個永遠長不大的小鬼羞辱,或是弄哭。
                                                                               
屍體本身,絕對不會有太多的著墨,這是少年漫畫的避諱。
                                                                               
                                                                               
我們,或者,起碼我自己,是從沒見過屍體的。
                                                                               
更別說這樣明顯的,是被惡意殘殺的屍體。
                                                                               
那表情,已經不能說是表情了,而是它"臉部肌肉所協調而呈的狀態"
                                                                               
你只能覺得,那裡面什麼都沒有了。 那肉堆裡。
                                                                               
沒有控制這些肌肉再次動作的力量,沒有思考和笑容,悲傷和慾望。
                                                                               
什麼都沒有了。
                                                                               
眼睛,或者該這麼說,兩個空空的瞳仁,瞳孔比我看見過的正妹雙眼,
都還要再大上一倍,可是那裡面什麼都沒有了。
                                                                               
直視。如果它還看得見任何東西的話。
一張應該是臉的肌肉堆,兩個空洞的瞳孔。
                                                                               
一抿僵硬的,冷冰的(那竟是笑容嘛?)
                                                                               
唇部的肌肉鬆弛而堅決,上勾。
                                                                               
那不是表情,喔,那不是的。
                                                                               
那是沒有了生命。
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
而如我方才所說,第二個令人震驚的點,
                                                                               
則是,其"姿態"。
                                                                               
一個肯定是人為的"姿態"。
                                                                               
頭下腳上。
                                                                               
頭部緊貼著冰冷的地面,連同無手的上軀體;
雙腳則併攏,下半身被高高抬起,小腿以下支撐在附近的岩壁。
                                                                               
以一種奇妙的姿勢平衡著,
沒有任何一股摩擦力或是地心引力敢打擾這作品似的,
                                                                               
腰部則彎成了一個不像是有生命的人類做得到的角度。
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
這麼說還是很抽象,
                                                                               
舉個常見的形象。
                                                                               
有去廟裡上香的經驗嘛?
                                                                               
廟堂的屋簷,不是都會有些奇異的雕刻嘛?
                                                                               
常常見到的不是會有一種身體長的像魚,頭部卻像是龍的東西嘛?
                                                                               
驚魂甫定的當下我是絕對想不起來那玩意兒的名字。
                                                                               
卻很直接的把那個姿態和方才的景象做了連接。
而那眼神空洞笑意冰冷的無生命啊,
                                                                               
雙手失蹤,令得他看起來削瘦,肩膀很窄(因為肩膀已經不復存在)
                                                                               
被硬是擺出這幅蜿蜒,柔若無骨的滑溜。
                                                                               
                                                                               
更令我想起了一種生物,
                                                                               
我最害怕的生物。
                                                                               
                                                                               
彷彿是心有靈犀似的,
                                                                               
蜘蛛男在沉吟片刻之後,開了口,
                                                                               
"現在想起來,你難道不覺得嗎?"
它緩緩的說著,好像跟他沒關係一樣的平穩說著,
                                                                               
"你難道不覺得那屍體看起來很像蛇嘛?"
