Chapter 59: Chu Nan Doing Push Ups
After exiting his spatial bracelet, Chu Nan did around a hundred pushups on the ground until not only was his forehead dripping with sweat, his entire body was drenched.
As he opened the door, Chu Nan walked out of the room in heavy steps, but his foot suddenly went soft and he lost his balance. If he had not managed to support himself with the door, he would have probably fallen on the ground.
“Haa.. it seems like the consumption was a little exhausting for the current me.” Chu Nan showed a self-deprecating smile. He barely sat back on the chair with the help of Lin Nianbing.
He then took out a Heaven Grade potion and looked at McCullen while traces of weariness could be seen from his smile. “I’m not sure if this is effective, but try it. If it fails, I’ll think of another method.”
McCullen felt a wave of suffocation in his chest as he took the potion with trembling hands. His eyes that had just recovered its calmness started moistening. “Chu Nan… you regarded me as a friend… so I shall not say anything much…”
Chu Nan lifted up the bowl of sour plum soup and said, “There’s no need for any more words. Just smear the potion on your injuries and… it should work.”
McCullen lifted his clothes and Chu Nan instantly gasped by the sight! Was he still a human? The scar was nearly two feet long, starting from his left shoulder to the right side of his waist.
“Son of Light, that’s not all.” Lin Nianbing patted McCullen with a pitiful expression and said. “Uncle, let’s treat your back injuries first.”
After he turned around, Chu Nan finally understood that the attack McCullen received had exceeded his imagination, as there was an identical scar behind his back!
What did that mean? It meant that McCullen’s body had been pierced through from his front to his back!
Chu Nan felt his scalp tingling. It was already painful when looking at such an injury. How did McCullen remain alive after receiving such severe wounds? How much torment had he persisted through? That was something unimaginable for him!
“Why? You didn’t expect it?” McCullen revealed a miserable smile. “Even I did not expect I could survive for so long. All these years, my level has also dropped from level 3 Earth Realm to level 4 of Human Realm…”
Level 3 Earth Realm? Level 4 Human Realm? That’s great! Chu Nan cried out in joy deep down. He had unexpectedly encountered a powerful guy that was once an Earth Realm expert!
The red-colored Heaven Grade potion dripped on the hideous-looking scar and almost immediately, McCullen felt an indescribable coolness on his back. Shortly after, that cool sensation spread out on his back. Soon, his bones started audibly crackling. Some of the grave injuries that had been suppressed by his Earth Realm aura along with some dislocated bones started to heal and got aligned back in place.
Lin Nianbing widened his mouth in shock when he looked at McCullen’s back. He could see the scar healing itself so the visual impact was even more shocking.

When the hideous scar came in contact with the potion, it was just like a slumbering python that suddenly woke up. The large scar continuously twisted and shook around, as if it wanted to resist the potion. The bones underneath his skin seemingly also came alive to form a rugged spine. Gradually, the bones started to realign in place and the large scar also rapidly shrunk with the erosion of the surrounding skin.
In a mere span of seconds, the scar that had tormented his days for dozens of years had disappeared without a trace. As soon as it disappeared, a fighting aura suddenly surged out, causing the entire room to shake from the impact and the dust to scatter down from the beams.
What potion kind of potion was this for it to be even more powerful than a Heaven Grade forbidden spell?! Such a miraculous potion had never been heard of in the Shengyuan Continent!
“I’m healed! I’m really healed!” McCullen excitedly touched his back and cried out in happiness. “Not only are my scars gone, even the corrosive fighting aura concealed in the injuries has disappeared!”
“Quick, quick! My chest!” McCullen had practically snatched the potion from Lin Nianbing as he poured out a dozen of drops on his chest.
The miraculous event happened once again. It was practically the same as his back, with his bones realigned and the scar disappearing. However, the fighting aura concealed within them fiercely shook on the ground, devastating the three inch-thick marble floor into powder. Chu Nan could also feel the tremble beneath his feet.
“I’m really recovered! That’s great!” McCullen excitedly clenched his fists as he continuously sized up his new body. “My strength! It’s returning! My power that had disappeared for a long time is finally returning!”
“Congratulations.” Chu Nan anxiously looked at the half-filled Heaven Grade potion in McCullen’s hands as he secretly prayed that McCullen would not break the bottle due to excitement.
Fortunately, the problem Chu Nan was worried about did not happen. Soon, McCullen recovered from his excitement and hastily came to Chu Nan’s side. “You’ve saved my life, and I shall repay you with my life! From today on, as long as you don’t stab me in the back or force me to do evil deeds, I will always follow you, until the day you undo your seal.”
“Follow me…” Chu Nan awkwardly laughed and scratched his head. He spoke in an embarrassed tone, “This… I just came out of the Heaven Forest and I’m penniless. I’m afraid I’m unable to fork you any salary for the time being.”
McCullen was stunned. With his previous injuries, he would at most have five years of his life left remaining. The day when his level drops below Human Realm would be the day of his death! That bottle of potion was equivalent to his life! How could he possibly consider his salary after his life had been saved?
“This…” Chu Nan sized up McCullen and continued. “Moreover, you’re a Earth Realm expert, and I heard that the salary range is even more shocking…”
“That’s enough!” McCullen waved his hand and interrupted. “In order to treat my injuries, you have taken on the risk of getting discovered, so I ought to repay this favor! As for the issue with salary, I still have some savings of my own and I won’t need it for the time being. The future is still long and this issue is of no hurry.”
“Sigh! Alright then.” Chu Nan regretfully nodded his head. “I can only say I really appreciate it.”
