EAA Chapter 43


Chapter 43- Master, I’m Homeless

Inside the Pill Refining Room, Mu Ru Yue stared fixedly at Wu Yu. Her gaze gave Wu Yu goosebumps. He hastily rubbed his face as he asked, “Precious disciple, there’s no flower growing on your Master’s face so why are you staring at me? Even though I know I’m elegant, handsome, free and easy, and distinguished and accomplished, you don’t have to look at me like that.”

Mu Ru Yue sized him up with a critical eye, but she couldn’t find any parts that were handsome or free and easy. ‘Why did she only see a benevolent elder?

She withdrew her gaze. “Master, I’m homeless.”

Wu Yu, who was gathering his medicines, stopped what he was doing after hearing that. He cast a curious gaze at her. “Homeless? What do you mean?”


“That’s simple.” Mu Ru Yue shrugged her shoulders. “I’ve been expelled from my family.”

“Hmm?!” Wu Yu was startled and his eyes widened from the shock. He said, “Did that old man of the Mu family really eat the wrong medicine? Doesn’t he wish to keep a talent every powerful faction would want to steal? He chased you out of the house? Are you kidding me? That old man is an idiot and a fool, but that’s advantageous for me. Haha! In this case, I’ll be your sole family member.”


Mu Ru Yue hadn’t heard that word for such a long time that it warmed her heart. “Master, I’ve been under your tutelage for a few months already and you haven’t given me anything, so can you give me a house? I want it to be a quiet place. The best would be a place where nobody comes to disturb me.”

Wu Yu glanced at her and asked, “Aren’t you the fiancee of the Ghost King? Why don’t you go to his place?”

Even though the rumors about the Ghost King were unpleasant, a sect’s mindset was different from the world’s. Unless they saw it for themselves, they wouldn’t easily believe those rumours, so Wu Yu was curious about that Ghost King.

He didn’t know if he would be compatible with that little girl. If he wasn’t, he didn’t mind threatening the Emperor to withdraw their marriage. Nobody could force his precious disciple.

“Don’t you know that there are differences between males and females? Even though that dog of an Emperor ordered our marriage, the marriage day hadn’t yet arrived, so everything isn’t fixed. Who knows if I really would wed him?”

‘When I first accepted the order, it was just to get a quiet place to increase my power. Who knew I will be able to leave the Mu family this easily? Is there still a need to marry him?’

At that instant, Ye Wu Chen’s pair of innocent eyes appeared in her mind, causing trembles within Mu Ru Yue’s heart.

“Little girl, I have a house on Hua Yuan Street. I’ll pass the key to you later. You can live there.”

Thinking about Mu Qing’s expression when he realized he’d chased away a peerless genius, Wu Yu couldn’t help but laugh. He would probably regret it so much that he’d want to knock his head against a wall.

“So, you do have a house in the Phoenix City. Why do you stay in an inn then?”

Facing Mu Ru Yue’s question, Wu Yu answered, “I would need to recruit servants and managing the house is troublesome. At an inn, however, there will always be someone ready to cater to my necessities.”

Wu Yu’s laziness was well known among all of the members of the Qing Yun Sect. Even though he was the Chief Alchemist, he didn’t take care of the Alchemists below his status. He only knew how to immerse himself in training.

Hua Yuan Street was the quietest street in the Phoenix City. Even though there were a lot of shops, there were only a minimal quantity of people shopping in the area. When Mu Ru Yue entered the house Wu Yu gave her, an intense flow of energy came surging towards her.

“I’ve heard that the houses on Hua Yuan Street were placed within an Energy Gathering Circle Array. It seemed that it was accurate as the dense energy here can’t be found in other places. If people were to train here, their progress would require half the work and produce twice the effect.”

  1. An important question: Do you want the title of the novel to be changed to Enchantress Amongst Alchemists: Ghost King’s Wife?

    1. That title character in the raws can mean consort, Main Wife, Concubine, but I’m used to use that term as concubine. However, people seem to hate it as that.

      1. i would probably go with wife. from what she said, i dont think she will be anything other then main wife for whoever she marries. also the ghost king might also only have one wife like his dad.

        1. Technically ‘consort’ would be more accurate given that he is called the ‘ghost king’ but wife works too; as consort is mostly just a fancy way of saying wife\husband of a powerful entity, especially the reigning monarch.

    1. Descend of the Pheonix, Evil Emperor’s Wild Consort (same author) and Ghost Emperor Wild Wife: Dandy Eldest Miss (Same author)

  2. I like wife better~
    Also…… omg….. wu yu is so……..ugh…… i am falling in love with his attitude…..too shameless….. but that’s good as he is supporting the mc…… and amazingly the mu family will receive their own downfall for expelling the mc…. i am expecting to see their worst fate….and the royal family too…..
    Btw, you write the wu yu wrong in here ?
    “u Yu, who was gathering his medicines, ”

    And thx for the chapter! I like this so much…. and sorry if i offend in anyway with my comment orz…..

    1. I’m so offended ;( How could you penalize my mistake? You should just think it’s perfect and let it be! 😛 Nah all comments on here are free style as long as it’s not overly offensive to the readers. Thanks for pointing out the mistake <3

  3. I think someone is going to get jealous when they find out that the handsome man is actually the ghost King and is Mu Ru Yue’s husband.
    They will all bow down in front of Mu Ru Yue and regret everything. They dare make her live without a home.
    I honestly don’t mind if it is wife or concubine both sound suitable for the novel, thank you for the chapters xo miki

    1. I’m wondering if they’ll be shameless enough to try to transfer the marriage to Mu Yi Xue when they find out, since Mu Ru Yue has been expelled from the family.

  4. Damn Wu Yu is such an awesome character :3 he really doesn’t give a shit about anything and dies what he wants xD
    Thank you Miki and I don’t really care about possible title changes if it is only about what sounds or looks better. It may be spoilery but what I would prefer is an accurate title (if she is gonna be the wife then wife if not concubine). I am a simple man xD

  5. Seriously, that (ex) “family” of hers is beyond stupid. I mean, even if she was unable to cultivate previously, to be able to reach level three suddenly, shouldn’t they rejoice and thinking just how smart she actually is? But then, maybe it just so that the author can make other arrangements for her 😀

    That teacher of hers reminds me to a loving grandfather. A doting, loving grandfather. Glad little Yue could get another loving grandfather.

    Thank you for the teaser, I forgot to read it last time. Will waiting for the full length chapter.

    1. The reason her father is angry is because he has been putting his plans into place on the assumption that she is trash and her suddenly not being trash has thrown his plans into chaos. He also didn’t expect to actually throw her out of the family; that was supposed to be an empty threat.

      I’m curious to know if her father will ever find out that MRY actually has legendary cultivation talent, but she was poisoned and crippled before her test. That will throw him for a loop.

      1. Still, good scheming parents shouldn’t just throw away something like Yue-chan….. I mean, he can use her to further his scheme… Or backup scheme or something….

  6. Awww love master wuyu,,,, the carefree handsome man haha,,

    Thanks for the chapter… i think consort has more impact but since you change it already who we are to argue, YOUR the BOSS♡♡♡♡♡

  7. For some reason, I can’t reply to Miki directly, so let me just say: I like the ambiguity of consort, rather than wife; they aren’t married yet, after all. ?

    Setting that aside (because you already made your decision ?) I am loving this series way to much; every new chapter brings an uncontrollable smile to my face. Thanks for continually brightening my day. ?

  8. If Wife is an accurate translation, I think it’s good? Concubine doesn’t bother me though, because I read so many old Chinese novel that I’m used to the concubinage system they use…. Western interpretation of concubine though, is more… pejorative than the Chinese version though, so I can see why people who aren’t as exposed to it don’t approve?

    Yay master good! ALSO, THE LOVE BEGINS!!!!! XD XD XD

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!!
