EAA Chapter 57


Chapter 57- Hidden Growth in  Feelings Part 8

It was hard for him to believe that such a handsome, submissive-looking man could be the rumoured Ghost King whose appearance was rumoured to be like that of a ghost’s. This… this was basically two different people.

“Is there a need for me to lie to you?” Mu Ru Yue asked, shrugging her shoulders.

“But…” Li Lu was at a loss for words for a moment before he muttered, “Those rumours originated from the palace, so I thought they were genuine.”

“Palace?” Mu Ru Yue narrowed her eyes. It seemed it was time to investigate the source of those rumours. “Let’s not care about that for now. Li Lu, how many experts can you gather for me in three month’s time?”


“If it is with Essence Purification Pills as a condition, I can assist you in assembling a hundred experts between the Fifth to Eighth Stage. The Essence Purification Pill doesn’t have much attraction for experts above the Eighth Stage.”

“Alright, I’ll give you three months.”

She would try her best to increase her strength in three month’s time….

Just as Li Lu turned to leave, the Mu family arrived….

When Mu Yi Xue looked at Ye Wu Chen, who was beside Mu Ru Yue, she seemed to have become infatuated by his handsome appearance. She was unable to shift her gaze away from him.

The young man had hair like flowing ink, and his skin was so white it seemed almost translucent. He had pure eyes that carried a slight ignorance to the current on-goings. His lips were elegant and had a slight cupid’s bow.

The young man’s gaze continually rested on Mu Ru Yue, filled with a sense of reliance. It was as though his eyes could hold only that person in its gaze.

Mu Yi Xue tightly clenched her fists in jealousy. Her long fingernails lost their color as the harmonious sight before her looked incredibly eye piercing. She wanted to kill Mu Ru Yue and take her place.

“Mister, who are you? Why are you with my eldest sister?” Mu Yi Xue gritted her teeth, asking furiously. She glared at Mu Ru Yue before shifting her gaze to Ye Wu Chen.

Ye Wu Chen looked slightly apprehensive at her before saying, “My wife, that mad woman is too terrifying. Can you chase her away?”

Mad woman? Mu Yi Xue’s charming face changed slightly. If it wasn’t for Mu Qing who signalled with his eyes for her to stop her impulsive actions, she would have stepped forward and snatched that young man to her side.

“Mister, I’m not a mad woman but the woman beside you is.”

“Xue Er!” Mu Qing glared at her. If he knew she would be so impetuous, then he definitely wouldn’t have let her accompany him. After all, the purpose of his arrival today was to convince Mu Ru Yue to return to the family.

Mu Yi Xue’s eyes burned with fury, but she didn’t say anything further and just looked at Mu Ru Yue with jealousy

“My wife is a good person and isn’t a mad woman.” Ye Wu Chen’s face turned blood red from anger. Rage filled his pure eyes. “If you continue bullying my wife, I’ll kill you.”

Mu Ru Yue was stunned as she looked at Ye Wu Chen. He had killing intent in his eyes. She asked in astonishment, “Wu Chen?”

In her heart, Ye Wu Chen was clean and beautiful, like an innocent child. Who knew that he could harbour killing intents?

“Father once told me that a man must protect his wife. I’m a man, so if anyone bullies my wife, I’ll kill her. I will definitely kill her!” Ye Wu Chen looked at Mu Yi Xue as he shouted in rage.

If someone else said that, perhaps Mu Ru Yue wouldn’t believe it. But since it was Ye Wu Chen, she couldn’t help but believe he would do it even if he couldn’t accomplish it.

Her heart suddenly bloomed with an indescribable feeling.

“Wu Chen, don’t let blood soil your hands.” Mu Ru Yue gently held his hand and said, smiling, “I can manage the killings. You’re the sole pure person in this world. I won’t let blood dirty your hands.”

    1. Blood’s thicker than water, so they probably think that despite treating her coldly or disregarding her, insulting her in her face, openly humiliating her for 10 years, trying to ruin her life and nearly killing her, if they act a little bit nice now, she’ll happily come running back, since they’re family.

    2. The original interpretation of that saying was actually the opposite. “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb.” Basically saying that the lifelong relationships you make yourself with friends and other loved ones are of greater import than the family you were born into through chance and no input of your own. The blood covenant in particular reference fellow soldiers fighting side by side in deadly conditions together, and as a show of how close they are would make a blood oath (cut hand and handshake or something along those lines) as proof that they have each other’s backs. But I digress, sure family can be included in those loved one who you made connections with, but it is not an inherent thing gained/earned just from having the same genetic lineage. But I guess the more recent interpretation is a sign of the times and culture values people of the times have.

      1. hahaah.

        that’s exactly what I wanted to retort (but you expressed it much better than I would have done).

        and I like to laugh inwardly while people use this saying inappropriately 😀

  1. What ever happened to the alchemy book beastie? Seems like we didnt hear anything about him for a while now. I assume the alchemy book itself has gotten used even if it was not mentioned, but not sure what happened to what-his-name so called super badass.

    1. Well she did tell him (Yu Jin I believe that OP spirit beast cat thing is called) to be discreet around others, so in all likeliness he’s off sunbathing and purring relatively close to her around/in the house. And the plot has been elsewhere and hasn’t really had time or necessity to show some interactions between cat-slave and human master.

        1. Yu Jin could possibly be some other kind of beast (like a dog?) as it was never explicitly stated, but based on the given information, him being some kind of cat/feline makes the most sense personality-wise and physical description. Unless otherwise stated, cat is the highest probability and is just more fun to imagine MRY carrying around a little black kitten than anything else.

          1. Something like a lemur or raccoon could fit the description, provided it’s black. However, I agree, the personality described is usually ascribed to a cat. What size is it? I don’t recall if they said.

            Thank you for the chapter.

  2. MRY is starting up her own sect. I wonder how it’d affect master Wu Yu. hmm… is he gonna join it and leave qin yun sect? or he juz wudnt care as long as she remains his disciple? i dont think he’d stop her anyhow.

  3. I do hope Wu Yu quits Qing Yung Sect to join hers… That would be humiliating for the sect… May the odd be never in the favor of the stupid family… They clearly have a death wish from four people (MRY, GK, WY, LL)…

  4. I have a feeling that it will take at last 4 chapters if not more for these Mu idiots to end up trashed and start saying ”You will regret this MRY!!” as they run back home 😀

  5. Thank you so much!! for chapter and teaser?*much love* hope you do well on your exams, Miki-san.✌?️
    It’s good that she was going to have her team.

  6. I don’t think any other novel at RT had pre-release comments as much as this novel…

      1. And you are awesome that you take the time to keep this up for 29 days <3 But you know, if you drink a beer a week it is ok but if you feel like you need multiple a day you have a serious problem 😛 I admit I have a serious problem xD

    1. I really hope so. I don´t want to see Mu Ru make some kind of fake peace just to gain something and later toss the mu family away. I want to see them permeantly walk differnet paths … or later maybe some kind of war or something like that.

  7. Orienko was born from the primordial chaos some time during the dawn of time and is the brother to the sisters of fate.

  8. I can see Ye Wu Chen’s blood in her hand when she discovers the truth XD
    She is going to beat him senseless XD
    Thanks for the translation!

  9. his original purpose was to use his Infinite Strength to hold the end of strands of fate and so the sisters can weave them into reality.

  10. But due to his constant flexing sending ripples of chaos throughout reality, the sisters were forced to fire him and create a loom to replace him.

  11. Now jobless, Orienko spent his time wandering the multiverse having many adventures and inventing the language of powerful men.
