the Empress Nue Wo， （the goddess of works，） in fashioning blocks of stones， for the repair of the heavens， prepared， at the Ta Huang Hills and Wu Ch'i cave， 36，501 blocks of rough stone， each twelve chang in height， and twenty-four chang square. Of these stones， the Empress Wo only used 36，500； so that one single block remained over and above， without being turned to any account. This was cast down the Ch'ing Keng peak. This stone， strange to say， after having undergone a process of refinement， attained a nature of efficiency， and could， by its innate powers， set itself into motion and was able to expand and to contract. strap on dick
When it became aware that the whole number of blocks had been made use of to repair the heavens， that it alone had been destitute of the necessary properties and had been unfit to attain selection， it forthwith felt within itself vexation and shame， and day and night， it gave way to anguish and sorrow.
One day， while it lamented its lot， it suddenly caught sight， at a GREat distance， of a Buddhist bonze and of a Taoist priest coming towards that direction. their appearance was uncommon， their easy manner remarkable. When they drew near this Ch'ing Keng peak， they sat on the ground to rest， and began to converse. But on noticing the block newly-polished and brilliantly clear， which had moreover contracted in dimensions， and become no larger than the pendant of a fan， they were greatly filled with admiration. The Buddhist priest picked it up， and laid it in the palm of his hand.
"Your appearance，" he said laughingly， "may well declare you to be a supernatural object， but as you lack any inherent quality it is necessary to inscribe a few characters on you， so that every one who shall see you may at once recognise you to be a remarkable thing. And subsequently， when you will be taken into a country where honour and affluence will reign， into a family cultured in mind and of official status， in a land where flowers and trees shall flourish with luxuriance， in a town of refinement， renown and glory； when you once will have been there……"
the stone listened with intense delight.
"What characters may I ask，" it consequently inquired， "will you inscribe？ and what place will I be taken to？ pray， pray explain to me in lucid terms." "You mustn't be inquisitive，" the bonze replied， with a smile， "in days to come you'll certainly understand everything." Having concluded these words， he forthwith put the stone in his sleeve， and proceeded leisurely on his journey， in company with the Taoist priest. Whither， however， he took the stone， is not divulged. Nor can it be known how many centuries and ages elapsed， before a Taoist priest， K'ung K'ung by name， passed， during his researches after the eternal reason and his quest after immortality， by these Ta Huang Hills， Wu Ch'i cave and Ch'ing Keng Peak. Suddenly perceiving a large block of stone， on the surface of which the traces of characters giving， in a connected form， the various incidents of its fate， could be clearly deciphered， K'ung K'ung examined them from first to last. They， in fact， explained how that this block of worthless stone had originally been devoid of the properties essential for the repairs to the heavens， how it would be transmuted into human form and introduced by Mang Mang the High Lord， and Miao Miao， the Divine， into the world of mortals， and how it would be led over the other bank （across the San Sara）。 On the surface， the record of the spot where it would fall， the place of its birth， as well as various family trifles and trivial love affairs of young ladies， verses， odes， speeches and enigmas was still complete； but the name of the dynasty and the year of the reign were obliterated， and could not be ascertained.
On the obverse， were also the following enigmatical verses：
Lacking in virtues meet the azure skies to mend， In vain the mortal world full many a year I wend， Of a former and after life these facts that be， Who will for a tradition strange record for me？
K'ung K'ung， the Taoist， having pondered over these lines for a while， became aware that this stone had a history of some kind.
