EAA Chapter 56


Chapter 56- Hidden Growth In Feelings Part 7

When Li Lu returned home after the end of the competition, his father viciously beat him up. Li Lu, however, persistently said that a man shouldn’t go back on his promises, that whatever he had promised, he must be committed to it. It had nearly made his old man use a sword to chop his legs off in fury.

In the end, the general’s wife held her husband back after learning about this and said that if he wanted to hit her son again, he had to kill her first. How could the henpecked general still have the guts to chop Li Lu’s legs off? He could only let him do what he wanted.

However, who knew that Mu Ru Yue would go missing after the competition? Li Lu had frequently used his connections to search for her. If it wasn’t for Mu Ru Yue going out of her residence, Li Lu’s connections wouldn’t have been able to find her.

“I almost forgot about something.” Mu Ru Yue stood up from the Imperial Consort’s chair and rolled her shoulders. “ Li Lu, help me recruit some experts.”


“Oh?” Li Lu blinked before asking, “What do you want experts for?”

Mu Ru Yue swept his gaze at him. “It’s definitely so that I could have my own forces. There’s surely a limit to what I can do by myself. If I want to survive, I must have a powerful party on my side.”

Saying this, Mu Ru Yue patted his shoulder. “So, I’ll be passing this matter on to you. I trust you can do it well.”

Hearing Mu Ru Yue say that, Li Lu awkwardly scratched the back of his head. “Mistress, since you have such great trust in me, I’ll definitely not let you down. Isn’t it merely assembling experts? I naturally have my ways to accomplish this. I guarantee that in the next three months, I’ll be able to help you recruit numerous experts. Of course, hehe! Mistress, you must have enough financial power to retain those experts and have them continue serving you.”

“You don’t have to worry about that,” said Mu Ru Yue, smiling. “Get the word out that anyone willing to serve me loyally will receive an Essence Purification Pill. This matter must definitely be done in secrecy so that those in the palace won’t know.”

Li Lu’s eyes lit up. An Essence Purification Pill was a great item capable of strengthening a person’s innate talent.

“Mistress, what will our forces be called?”

“Hmm?” Mu Ru Yue caressed her lower jaw. After being silent for a moment, she said, “It shall be known as ‘Massacre the Heavens Sect’.”

Massacre the Heavens Sect means that even if  the heavens were to go against them, they would massacre it with no regrets.

“Massacre the Heavens Sect is a great name. Haha! Mistress, in the future after following you, we’ll be going against the heavens. If we were to go against the land, wouldn’t the heavens be left? If the heavens are unfair, then what is wrong with massacring it?”

Li Lu laughed. He didn’t know that today he had made the best decision of his life. It wasn’t until several years later that he rejoiced about his decision.

Massacre the Heavens Sect?

When no one noticed, Ye Wu Chen chuckled softly. Such a domineering name really suited her….

Mu Ru Yue didn’t think much about the name, but it reflected her heartfelt longing.

In her previous life, her grandfather had went against the heavens to save her father’s life. This resulted in him dying after being struck and annihilated by celestial lightning.

Since the heavens were so heartless, why would it be wrong to eliminate it?

“Li Lu, since you’re currently my subordinate, I’ll introduce you to someone.” Mu Ru Yue turned her head to look at the handsome young man at her side before introducing him with a smile, “This is the Ghost King, Ye Wu Chen.”

Li Lu almost leapt up in shock, his eyes widening in disbelief. After he examined Ye Wu Chen’s unparalleled, handsome appearance, he looked back at Mu Ru Yue and swallowed spittle hard.

“Mistress, are you mistakened? Isn’t the Ghost King as ugly as a ghost? How can he be so handsome that even Prince Hua can’t compare to a single percent of his beauty?”

    1. mmhm xD hehe~ we’ll die and celebrate together 😛 That’s why I purposely posted a major cliff teaser previously for chapter 55 hehe~

    1. It’s my first paper xD I still have 2 to go *sigh* My exam ends on the 16th of Nov. I’ll slightly increase the release after I restock some chapters after all of my exams.

  1. Best of luck Miki, beat the your exam like Mu Ru Yue beat 20 people on the martial stage. Xoxo PS…… I am sure you will be fine how can you fail when you are smart enough to translate this novel this is not something anyone can do.

    1. Chapters are indeed short, but they do cover the same or more as other novels kind of. No unnecessary details, not that I’m not a fan of colorful unnecessary details every now and then.

      I do sympathize, and quite a few people have voiced the same thoughts a few times. Given how incredibly short they are compared to other novels if it was up to me they would be posted as double chapters each time, even if it takes longer between chapters. But I’m happy with one short chapter too.

      I wonder at what rate the author posted the chapters? I guess one a day?

      1. Now that I think about it though you can always just take a break of at least 1 day between chapters and read 2 at a time anyway… if length of the chapters bothers you too much that is.

  2. I never really understood the term “fighting”? Couldn’t it have been “fight on” or “continue fighting?” It just doesn’t sound right.
    Thanks for the chapte and good luck on your exams!!

  3. Thanks for a new chapter , im having a so so morning my water dispencer broke which flooded my kitchen at midnight and woke up by an unknown caller hmmmp .

  4. Thank you for the chapter.
    I believe the heroine comes to like the hero a bit; she’s introducing him to her subordinate (as far as I an tell) as though he is and will be important in their lives. Also, Li Lu’s disbelief is classic.

  5. Chapter 57 (teaser)- 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….

  6. Thank you for the chapters! Li Lu sure got it right. He seems kinda like the easygoing with good connections subordinate (slave?). Wish u luck on your exam Miki-sama! May you get to finish it quickly qith awesome scores and continue the translation;D

  7. Oh miki you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind miki! Hey miki! Thanks for the translations. I found them today and vacuum cleaned the entire bunch of translations in one go. The pacing of this story is perfect. I’ve read a bunch of others where it takes ages for every arc and I just don’t have the damned patience. I wish you luck on the coming exams and hope that I see more chapters at the speed of light!
