I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 109. Cadet Romance (1)
“Who are you looking at?”
Carly shook her head awkwardly. She sat across from Essia, the instructor of class A4.
A woman with silver hair that reached her waist. Essia, who was looking at Carly, suddenly laughed as if she knew what she thought.
“Carly, can’t you get used to cadets wanting to be romantically involved?”
“No, it’s not that.”
“In any case, I heard you apologized personally to a C-class cadet. I don’t know what happened, but I’m surprised you did it because of your character.”
“It’s just… that I made a mistake.”
“But you could have called the cadet to apologize alone. If you do that in front of the other cadets, it could ruin your reputation.”
“Now I’m a little embarrassed, I don’t want to talk about it anymore.”
“I understand you.”
When Essia rang for the waiter, Carly’s gaze shifted elsewhere again.
She looked at Han Seong who was sitting with a Class A cadet.
“So Carly, how do you feel as an Instructor?”
“It’s not difficult. I just do the job properly.”
“I feel more comfortable here than on the battlefield. I plan to use this break to settle down at the Academy, though.”
““It makes me happy to teach cadets.”
Carly nodded at Essia’s opinion.
She thought maybe this would be the right path for her.
Suddenly, she felt uncomfortable.
She was not in this mood when she walked into the coffee shop with Essia.
She averted her gaze again.
Was her name Glesia?
Her unusual blue hair also looked familiar.
She evaluated this cadet on the entrance exam. All the other evaluators gave her high marks. She was a high performing cadet.
“Fruit parfait and chocolate cake. I hope you enjoy it.”
Essia replied quietly.
He had told her he wasn’t interested in love. She believed his words.
Because she also felt very sorry for her reckless behavior.
Although their conversation was really short, she could see Han Seong’s sincerity.
“Carly?” Posted only on NovelUtopia
“You’re a little weird today, why are you so absent-minded? Your parfait is going to melt.”
When she heard Essia’s words, she clumsily grabbed the spoon.
What the hell am I thinking…?
She wasn’t supposed to get involved in a cadet’s private life.
An Instructor could not interfere in what a student did on the weekend. Cadets were also supposed to relax, not just train.
She lifted a spoonful of parfait to her mouth.
…The scene between Cadet Han Seong and Cadet Glesia raised a big question in her mind, but she tried hard to suppress it.
“This parfait is delicious.”
“This coffee shop is one of the reasons I want to stay at the Academy…. The fruit parfait is great.”
She smiled at Essia’s words.
Carly was relieved when she looked at her, because the woman who was always depressed when she was on the battlefield, was happy inside the Academy.
They exchanged several dialogues. Essia had arrived at the Academy a few months earlier, so she taught her about the life of an Instructor.
For example, about how important it was to create opportunities for cadets to make their own efforts, not to worry too much about the cadets, etc.
And those words resonated with her.
…Because it fit her current situation.
My interest is certainly too much, even though Cadet Han Seong benefited from it.
She had to reduce her intensity a bit.
He didn’t have to worry about what Han Seong did in his spare time.
Besides, they had a cadet-instructor relationship.
“I’ll tell you because I think you have a bad opinion about dating. You can’t help it if cadets fall in love over time. There were also people we liked when we were cadets. This can’t be controlled.”
Her words were bitter to Carly.
“Why allow cadets to have romantic relationships?”
“It can’t be helped, they are in their twenties.”
She believed that an Instructor should watch that a cadet was on the right track.
She thought that cadets with brilliant talents needed more attention from Instructors.
“I don’t think so.”
“We should guide the outstanding cadets.”
“So I think we need to prevent cadet romance as much as we can. We have to teach them to look ahead, to focus on their progress.”
