EAA Chapter 94


Chapter 94- Mysterious Black Clothed Man

The competitors went to pick their medicinal plants in an orderly manner before returning to their seats. Qin Fei Fei glanced at Mu Ru Yue before snickering as she took out her pill furnace.

A bright red pill furnace appeared in front of her. Following that, she raised her palm in a gentle motion, causing a bright flame to dance on her hand.

“I will definitely beat that girl this time.”

If not, then how could she have the face to continue to stay here?


Everyone began to focus on their pill ingredients once the pill refinement commenced. As such, nobody noticed that the black-clothed man had discreetly taken out a porcelain bottle. Traces of an odourless and colourless substance permeated from that porcelain bottle. When the substance passed by medicinal plants, they began to gradually wither.

“Wha….what is going on?”

“Why has my medicinal plant withered?”

“I’m doomed. Everything is finished…”

Alarm soon turned into despair.

If they had to get new medicinal plants, then they would certainly run out of time. Could it be that they had lost before they could even compete? How could they be willing for that to happen?

“What’s happening?!” Elder Flame’s expression slightly darkened. He stood up from his seat and shifted his gaze to that black-clothed man. The light in his eyes gradually dimmed.

“I previously felt something was amiss with that black-robed man. Can this be his doing?”

But he didn’t have any evidence. Even Elder Flame didn’t have any idea on how to remedy this. Furthermore, it wasn’t just the others as that black-clothed man’s medicinal plants had also withered. If his medicinal plants didn’t wither, then it would have been easy…

The black-clothed man sneered. He wouldn’t let anyone successfully form their pill, even if the host of the event were able to prepare more medicinal plants for the participants. The only one that could win this round can only be him!

“No!” Qin Fei Fei looked at the withered medicinal plants before her. Her exquisite face momentarily paled. She bit tightly on her lips as her body shuddered. “Why…why did this happen? I’m can’t take it! I didn’t even enter the top three positions. I wanted to use this round to wash off the disgrace from the previous matches. Why have I already lost the qualifications to participate in this competition?”

She was really unsatisfied as the Pill Assembly would be hosted only once every few years. If she were to lose this opportunity, she would have to wait for some time before competing again.

Cough cough!” Elder Flame dryly coughed twice. With a strict gaze that surveyed the surroundings, he calmly said, “Everyone, since there have been changes in this competition, this competition shall last until…..”


Ling Tian walked two steps forward before his words even landed. Under the cover of the black robe, his lips curled up into a slight curve before saying, “As an alchemist, we have to adapt to situations. Since that is the case, there will definitely be a way to reinvigorate the withered medicinal plants.”

“Do you have a way?” Elder Flame asked with a darkened expression.

Ling Tian snickered. He didn’t say anything more and just returned to his seat. He slowly raised his palm.

His fingers were slender and good looking, with a distinct bone structure. A faint green light was emitted from his palm and gradually entered the medicinal plant. The initially withered medicinal plant regained some vitality shortly after.

“The legendary method of using energy to recover medicinal plants!” Elder He stood up abruptly. With an ashen face, he looked at Ling Tian. “You’re that person’s disciple.”

“That’s right, I am that person’s disciple. Moreover, my name isn’t Ling Tian.” His appearance had been covered by the black robe so nobody could see his expression. “You shouldn’t be foreign to my name. I’m that person’s prideful disciple, Ling Ye!”

    1. But she did to her bro and to her sky-high pride~ due to being born in that family and so called talent~ She might be talented, but MRY is better obviously as the MC~

    1. Ikr?! Something’s wrong here… A disaster’s coming for sure. It’ll snow in the middle of summer and we’ll be having heatwaves in the winter! Miki isn’t torturing us. Strange. So strange.
      (Whisper: I’m scared…)

  1. Mike made no self-insert? Why is Miki not appearing from a furnace, or do none of the pills get done in this chapter? *poke*

    1. Did I seriously just fail to type the first word of the message, this is a huge failure even by my standards. Maybe I should go to sleep.

      1. Go to sleep~ Row row row the boat gently down the stream, if you see little Miki, don’t forget to scream~ as Miki loves to play in people’s dream~ *Evil Laughters* Alright, jokes aside, rest well and sweet dreams. Miki is awake now so she won’t be able to enter anyone’s dream.

          1. no, i don’t dare to sleep before master miki sleep firs! if master has already sleep soundly, i will ________ and __________ or __________ or _________ or better i will ________ master while having a face full of ‘angelic smiles’.

  2. Mew? Miki chan is not going to tease us in this teaser nya? I don’t even see a prank nya…. Oh meow~~ Miki chan thank you for the hard work nya~~

  3. I got to give credit to Qin Fei Fei. At least for now she’s fighting fair against the MC and not doing anything underhanded. Yes she uppity, annoying, and most likely future cannon fodder. Yet, for now she’s fighting fair unlike that adopted sister of hers.

    1. Well she might not due to her pride. MRY isn’t worthy for her to be underhanded as she is a lowly alchemist to her. XD Underhanded means = not confident in beating her opponent. Tsk tsk~

  4. “I will definitely beat that girl this time.”

    No. No, you will not.

    … You know what would be awesome and unexpected? If, after all this template villainess stuff, she becomes Ru Yue’s best friend. That would shatter my expectations in a good way. 😛

    1. Seriously?! You want it to happen?! I bet that it will not happen as her brother is an enemy of the mc~
      and she is too prideful~
      Who bets that the black-clothed man is the mc’s husband?

      1. I’m just saying it’s a very, very ‘template’ sort of situation currently. While it’s pointless to be different just for the sake of being different, there’s no point in deliberately doing the same bits over and over again either.

        And I’ll take that bet. 😉

        1. so are soul-chan taking the bet or not?
          better answer than just guess so if we are wrong there is a group not just me and darky.
          (i will call soulesschyld : soul-chan and dark jackel : darky. tell me if you don’t like it and tell me what you prefer to be called)

  5. Master miki! I respect you as you help the one who has exam by updating today~
    But, if it is me, i will still be curious so i can’t say that you are kind or a sadist~

    Still, my love for my master will never change~

    1. Can’t I be in the middle? xD But slightly tilting more towards sadism? My sadism skills are being polished by some readers after all.

    2. I agree. I’m even more curious now. Why dles it have to be exam period! My parents would ban me from reading and try to wake me up from miki’s brainwashing.

      1. *Face palms* Heidi~ I had told you not to read the teaser! Sigh~ I should have said plz read it to try to get the opposite effect.

  6. Well… my master….. are you seriously gonna believe that heidi will not read your teasers?
    Then, you are wrong~
    There is no one who can reject my master’s seduction~
    And heidi! My master is not the reincanation of devil! My master IS the devil herself/himself ( i don’t know master gender, please elighten me master)
    And of course you love her~ who can reject her seduction? Please elighten me if you know~

    For master miki : if you tell heidi to read the teasers that it will double the effect that he can’t resist your seduction~
    And, don’t worry too much heidi as i too the same as you. The difference are that i study while reading master miki’s work and i divide my brain like this : 5% study and 100% reading so it is quite hard to answer~
    Now i am just waiting for the results of the exams while trembling……

    1. MIkiis a bonafide girl~ Miki has always used she/her. Novelly never reads Miki’s comments and proclaims that you love her? Miki is a little dubious of your love now…

  7. No…..i love you!!!
    It…It is just that some fans says that you are the hubby so i am confused…..

    *sniffles* ma…master….master miki is doubts me….. master is evil….. i am just confused…. i want to say she but i am afraid that master will hate me if i am wrong….*hides in the corner* *depressed* *sniffles*

  8. But…. but….. master usually calls herself miki…..and i am confused because you accept to be a hubby…..and how am i not loyal to you?……. miki don’t trust me….. i am sad…..*sniffles* ?

    1. Ah that one~ you hadn’t read it properly. MIki doesn’t have the extra bottom parts for males from her mom. Miki accepted that as eggy wanted Miki to be her husband. The girl x girl postscript part should have indicated to you that Miki is girl…..

      1. English is not my first language so it is hard to understand the hidden meaning…. and i deducts that you are a girl when i see that part but….. i recall that you accept eggy proposals for you to be his hubby…. so what do i do? If i follow my first deduction, i am afraid that i am wrong and it will make master angry at me and abandon me….. so i am asking to make sure…..*sniffles*

  9. *pout* i will reluctantly answer your question as i love master….
    my first langugae is indonesia

    And master you will not abondon me, will you? *puppy eyes*

  10. I’m surprised you resisted the urge to write the last line as ““I will definitely beat Miki this time.”

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. add this above that words : miki appeared in front of miki. Following miki, miki raised miki’s palm in a miki motion, causing miki to appear on miki’s hand.

      LOL. have i add too many miki in the sentence? and no offense to master miki alrighty? i am just following your teaching as you are my master, it is my responsibility to follow master miki’s behavior~

      1. Careful there! If you write Miki three times in a row unspeakable things *might* happen. She’s like beatlejuice in that way. You almost accidentally doomed us all there, thankfully the word “raised” saved us. 😉

  11. Miki the Demo- *clears throat* Goddess of Teasers, Cliffs and Pranks had not bestowed her evi- *clears throat again* Blessing!!!! Is the world gonna end?

    Miki-sama, thanks for the chapters and spoilers… Wish this had a *Miki* character cameo, like what felix typed… 🙂

  12. This is god speaking! I want Miki to release 10 chapters today. If she does I will give her the best sundae in the world.

  13. i agree Miki is too seductive. I studied before submerging yo Miki’s brainwashing but I keep thinking about it during the exam.

  14. Oh, they are going to be surprised since Little Yue also able to restore her herbs. Not only restored, but increased in grade too!

  15. o.O another alchemist who can revive a medicinal plant… would it be on par with her?

    Thank you ♪♪(o*゜∇゜)o~♪♪

    1. Congratulation~
      Can i call you fin-chan? If no, what do you prefer to be called?
      And welcome to the group of readers that will be pranked by master miki~
      You will laugh, depressed, sad, annoyed and other things~
      Because of the results of master miki’s pranks~
      *smiled evilly*
