Chapter 60: Guide
“Eh?” McCullen suddenly blanked out before he shook his head and smiled with a twinge of resignation in his tone. “It seems like that the corrosive power has corroded the majority of my strength, so I’ve only managed to recover to the level 5 of Human Realm.”
“Is that so?” Chu Nan was a little disappointed. He originally thought he had managed to save a bodyguard of Earth Realm strength but instead, he got a level 5 Human Realm bodyguard.
Suddenly, Chu Nan revealed a genuine smile. In anycase, he had saved a person and moreover, became friends with him. Overall, it was a pretty good ending.
“It doesn’t matter!” McCullen shook his head with indifference. “I’ve only lost my strength, but not only has my body recovered, I feel that my current condition has even surpassed when I was at my peak. Based on my experience and understanding of fighting aura, there’s no need for me to spend time to comprehend. Compared to someone of the same level, my progress will be much faster. I believe that I can return to the Earth Realm very soon!”
Very soon… Chu Nan rubbed his temples. Ever since he had been deceived by the druid elder, he had gained a new understanding of the term ‘very soon’. In this continent where the lifespan were comparatively longer, very soon usually took a long time.
In particular, for McCullen who could live up to two hundred years old, ten years was merely a blink of an eye.
Chu Nan sighed. God knows how long is the ‘very soon’ as per mentioned by McCullen? One day? A month? One, two years? Or dozens of years?
“Brother Chu Nan.” Carlina walked into the living room with cheerful steps. When she saw the bare chested McCullen, she blanked out for a moment before regaining the composure that a saintess ought to possess. She slightly nodded at McCullen before turning to Chu Nan and said, “Brother Chu Nan, the pope wants us to return to the temple soon. We’ll be setting off tomorrow so you’ll have to prepare early!”
Following Carlina was Catherine and Shanz. As both of them had appeared in the Dolunga City together with Chu Nan, they had been recognized by the citizens as the assistants sent by the God of Light to Chu Nan. As a result, they had also drank plenty in every celebration.
So right now, both their faces were slightly flushed. Evidently, they had been given tons of attention by the celebrating citizens.
“I understand.” Chu Nan answered calmly. But, in the corner of his eye, he saw Lin Nianbing looking slightly lonely. After which, he spoke to Carlina. “Nana, I have a friend who is an extremely devout believer in the God of Light and I hope that he can join the Temple of Light. However, he has yet to be baptized and become a member of the temple, so he is not unqualified yet to preach about the teachings of the God of Light.”
“Brother Chu Nan, you mean to…?”
“Haha…” Chu Nan awkwardly scratched his head out of habit and said, “I wanted to ask if Nana could help with my friend’s baptism? And how can he officially join the Temple of Light and travel around to preach the teachings of the God of Light?”
“Oh.” Carlina wrinkled her adorable nose and replied,”It’s not a problem to assist with his baptism, but to preach for the teachings of the God of light… Even though anyone can assume the role, they would need a recommendation of a temple staff in order to join the temple. After which, they would have to pass the examination to see if they have a certain understanding of the doctrine of the God of Light before the final decision can be made.”
“A temple staff?” Chu Nan laughed. “Then Nana is a temple staff, right?”
Carlina revealed an extremely apologetic expression. “Brother Chu Nan, since I’m his baptist, I am unable to be his recommender. Moreover, I only have a single recommendation slot every year and I’ve already used the last one yesterday…”

Chu Nan revealed a helpless expression. He wanted to ask which bastard had used that slot, and if that bastard were to voluntarily back out of it, could the slot be freed up? However, he was unable to do so.
“Oh right, Brother Chu Nan.” Carlina looked at Chu Nan in confusion. “Why don’t you personally recommend him?”
“Me?” Chu Nan pointed at himself with an expression of disbelief. “I have the right to do a recommendation?”
“That’s right.” Carlina nodded her head seriously and answered, “As a Saintess and a Son of Light who has yet to complete our trials, we have ten recommendation slots every year, and a single recommendation slot for a guide of a specific area. After we have passed our trials, the number of recommendation slots we have would then be multiplied by ten.”
“Guide? What’s that?” Chu Nan revealed a curious expression.
If it was someone of the Temple of Light who had asked such a basic question, they would have already been kicked out or perhaps secretly dealt with.
However, Chu Nan was different. He was not a member of the temple who rose up from the bottom. Instead, he was a man who ascended to the heavens in a single step, so no one could possibly blame him for his ignorance.
Once again, Carlina explained it to him in all seriousness. “A Guide is a temple staff and devout believer who is responsible for the development and management of the designated area.”
“Oh!” Chu Nan nodded in sudden realization. “That is to say, the person-in-charge of an area!”
“It can be inferred as such.” Carlina nodded. “However, the teachings of the Temple of Light states that all men are equal so in terms of appellation, there are no person-in-charge or officials in the temple.”
“I understand! The citizens of the God of Light are indeed blessed. Praises for the mighty God of Light!” Chu Nan opened his arms as he faced the skies. However, he was secretly roasting that the doctrine was the exact copy of democracy back on Earth. F*ck that equality. Ultimately, it is the officials that have the final say!
A thick-sized lightning streaked across the skies once again and the deafening thunder caused the ground to slightly shake.
Chu Nan inwardly clicked his tongue. ‘Don’t tell me there’s really a God of Light? Or else why would there always be flashes of lightning every time I use the name of God to deceive people?’
“The weather nowadays is surely strange.” Chu Nan chuckled in worry before he turned to Lin Nianbing and softly whispered. “Do you believe in the God of Light?”
Lin Nianbing furrowed his brows and pondered for a moment before he said, “I believe you!”
“Then that’s enough!” Chu Nan snapped his fingers and said to Carlina, “Nana, this is the friend who I mentioned that is very loyal to the God of Light.”
Lin Nianbing had more or less guessed the intentions of Chu Nan so he hastily spoke in a pious tone, “The great Almighty God of Light, I respect you.”
