I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 102. Dersen Luabelle & Rachel Luabelle (2)
Cadets did not use honorifics to refer to others.
Although he spoke nonchalantly, a cold sweat ran down his back.
“Han Seon. Rachel wanted to know about you. Now that we’ve met, I’d like you to spend some time with us, how about it?”
Dersen expressed himself spontaneously.
He was even convinced that he would not reject his proposal.
He nodded as he looked at Rachel.
He was curious. He wondered why Rachel wanted to meet him.
“We would love to have you as our guest for some tea. The others will leave now to make Rachel more comfortable.”
Before leaving, all the high-ranking nobles bowed. That scene froze his heart even more.
Dersen started to walk.
He followed naturally, but inside he was nervous.
I’m going crazy.
He didn’t understand why this happened to him. He felt a greater sense of crisis than when the rumors that Luna liked him spread.
…This was supposed to happen to Leonhard.
It made no sense for him to be related to the royal family.
“I’ll treat you to a nice tea, hope you like it. I was very curious about you too. I didn’t expect to meet you casually.”
“It’s an honor for me too.”
“You really surprised me a lot. Your attribute has the common grade, but you got a draw against Leonhard, the best cadet in the entrance exam. It’s impossible that Leonhard didn’t purposely struggle against you. I am more interested in you.” Posted only on NovelUtopia
Dersen spoke calmly. But Han Seong felt as if he was walking on ice.
He hesitated for a moment because he didn’t know what to answer.
“Hahaha… You don’t have to act so serious, aren’t we both cadets?”
Han Seong did not feel sincere in his words.
In this world, it was natural for the nobility to ignore commoners, so it was illogical for someone from the imperial family like Dersen to be interested in a commoner.
Dersen had a legendary grade attribute as did Leonhard.
In comparison, he had a commoner grade attribute. No matter how strong his spear art was, he could never avoid prejudice about his attribute.
A small mistake could be detrimental.
“Thank you for being considerate, but I don’t dare.”
“…I can’t force you either.”
When he nodded slightly, a coldness appeared in Dersen’s eyes.
He seemed to be putting him to the test.
He tried to respond as matter-of-factly as possible.
Dersen had asked Leonhard these same questions.
“Hmm, Han Seong?”
When he heard a very soft voice, he looked to the side.
Rachel was looking at him with sparkling eyes.
She had pronounced his name perfectly.
“I’ve never heard that name anywhere. From your name to the rumors about you fighting Leonhard. It all seems strange to me.”
She smiled softly as she looked at him.
“I get that a lot. My name is different.”
“That’s true. You were going back to the dormitory after training? It looks like your cadet uniform is pretty dirty.”
Dersen interrupted his conversation with Rachel. He nodded his head.
“Yes. I was so engrossed in my training that I forgot what I looked like.”
“You’d better change your uniform. I’ll have a maid help you before we have tea.”
He readily agreed to Dersen’s proposal.
His heart felt heavy.
He felt like he was walking next to two ticking time bombs. He was sure that if he caused them to get upset, his life at the Academy was over.
He preferred to stay a little longer at the Academy.
He regretted not leaving as soon as he saw them.
“I heard your attribute is Spearman. I’ve wielded spears in the past.”
“Yes. Isn’t the spear the king of cold weapons? Although the art of the spear has no significant attribute, it is worth learning how to wield that weapon.”
He was interested in Dersen’s words.
Han Seong expected that his childhood was not normal because he was a member of the imperial family, but he did not expect that he had learned to wield the spear.
“I learned how to use the spear too.”
Rachel became involved in the conversation.
The sense of crisis he felt increased.
