The sages said, read ISSTH chapters 142!

We all know that Meng Hao has incredible deductive powers. What will be his conclusion regarding the Cosmetic Cultivation Pill? Did Xu Qing sell it? Give it away? Misplace it? Did she lose it in a freak Texas hold’em blunder?

Chapter 142: Black Sieve Sect
Translated by Deathblade
Contributing Editors: Madam Deathblade, John Rogers
Proofreaders: Lingson, MeeBoo and Yascob

This is the first guaranteed chapter of the week!

Some readers suggested to improve the introduction to the novel on the index page. I added some reader quotes and reviews with the goal of more accurately describing the story.

  1. Fellow daoists, I`m looking for an eye glittering pill.
    Willing to pay up to 1 million spirit stones for it.
    Once acquired, I`ll gift it to our chosen Deathblade.
    Please contact me.

  2. Thank you for the chapter!

    Btw Deathblade I guess you may know already but the web novel community is gonna be moving to a new subreddit over at /r/noveltranslations since the mods of /r/lightnovels don’t like having non-japanese works apparently. I only learned about this recently, it’s too bad :/

    1. Yeah I noticed that. Well, it is what it is. If the community for Chinese web novels switches (which is seems to have already done) then the old /r/lightnovels is gonna be pretty dead I bet

      1. I originally subscribed to that subreddit for Japanese novels, but once I found Stellar Transformations I fell in love. So, I’m a bit sad that people are moving… but everyone over at the new place seems enthusiastic, which isn’t a bad thing!

        I’m going to stick with the sinking ship, however. Like the captain of Titanic. Except I’m more of a scullery maid.

  3. Fellow Daoists
    I am looking for an ultimate chinese to english translator to read every good LN .
    WIlling to pay up $1 dollars if acquired
    Please contact me

  4. hmm… I’ll bet that Meng Hao initially thinks Xu Qing sold it due to no longer caring about her time in the Reliance sect. But he’ll be smart and send a cryptic message to the seller with some kind of key word/phrase which only Xu Qing would recognize as being from Meng Hao to see if she responds.

    Thanks for the chapter, btw.

  5. Well I wouldn’t blame her, I mean she had two aces in her hand and there were another 2 on the table, who would have thought that someone would complete their royal flush on the river?
