I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 12. An Extraordinary Man with a Common Attribute (2)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Fafa
Generally, the higher the grade of an attribute, the faster said attribute increases in level.
Additionally, higher- grade attributes are more detailed and specific in terms of concept. In contrast, the concept of low grade attributes are superficial. Therefore, the rate of level growth would be much slower.
It was surprising that a man with a common attribute had reached level 3 in nearly the same amount of time Glesia had. But she expected there would be a wide gap between their levels in the future.
“So, as I explained to you earlier, effort is essential to me.”
She let out a small sigh at the man’s nonchalant response.
She couldn’t understand this man any better than she did in the beginning.
“But even if you make an effort, it will be more difficult to level-up from now on. Our efforts will yield completely different results.”
This man said that effort is basic, but their cases were different.
Glesia basically started the race ahead of Han, and even if they gave the same amount of effort, she would get to her goal much faster than he would.
And, her running speed would be completely different.
Even if Glesia walked while Han ran in her figurative race, the gap between the two would still widen where Han could still not keep up.
“…That’s right. They will definitely be different as you say.”
The man nodded at her words. He seemed calm despite what she argued.
“But that’s not all.”
“How… can you say it isn’t?”
“Of course, my progress is slower than yours. I need to put much more effort than you. If we take into account our attribute grade difference, I have put 4, or maybe even 5 times more effort than you have to put into it. But, it’s still possible, and you’ll never know unless you try.”
This man recognized that the difference between them was huge.
But he believed it was possible.
He was convinced he could close the ridiculous gap between her and him with hard work.
She swallowed hard as she stared up at Han.
He was certainly different from the other people she had seen who had been stuck with an awful attribute.
Others would have been frustrated at having a common grade attribute and would have discarded entering the Academy as soon as they realized the difference between them and others.
It was hard to bear to look around at talents brighter than one’s own.
So everyone knew.
The difference they would face later on.
And the wall of reality.
But this man was confident despite knowing it.
He claimed that if there was any difference, he would try to reduce it with more effort.
He was sure it was possible, even if he had a common grade attribute….
Glesia’s subconscious was anxiously waiting for this man’s next words.
She said nothing as she looked at the man who was deep in thought.
The man finally opened his mouth again.
“Of course, I would have liked to have an attribute with a better grade. I can’t deny that I still wish for it. But, this is my reality now.”
“I can’t change the Spearman attribute I have. Because reality doesn’t change. So, I accepted it. I’m just doing the best I can in my current situation.”
Han now naturally seemed more extraordinary than before in the examination room to Glesia after hearing what he had to say about his attribute. Posted only on NovelUtopia
He had an insignificant common grade attribute.
But his mentality and demeanor was far from common.
Finally, she felt she could understand him a little.
Before her eyes, Glesia envisioned her sister in the place Han was standing.
—Glesia. You, too, will understand later. Because sometimes one has to make certain decisions. Reality is something you can’t refuse even if sometimes you don’t know it.
Her older sister sometimes uttered nonsense words.
Her sister, who should now be in the front line, suddenly appeared in front of her.
She had clearly said the word ‘reality’.
She could not believe that a man with an insignificant attribute reminded her of her sister.
Glesia got her sense of reality back, and saw Han standing where he was before.
“Well, I’ve rambled on a bit. But in short, the point is that I don’t deny reality. I simply accept it and try to live with it. And it’s certainly hard for you to understand it now. Because we are different from each other.”
“…You’re right. We are both so different.”
She began to reflect after answering.
She could not behave the same as someone with a common grade attribute.
Although she was deep in thought, she couldn’t take her eyes off Han Seong.
This man seemed to be hiding a secret that she was unaware of.
His appearance, personality, behavior, and even his name were not ordinary.
A man with an insignificant attribute.
But he felt extraordinary in everything else. To her, he was different from the rest.
He was special.
“But you still want to understand me, right? That’s why you want to talk with me.”
She nodded as she heard his clear voice.
“Yes. That’s why I’m trying to have a conversation with you.”
“Well, it’s hard to explain in words. But there is a way to understand me.”
Her eyes fluttered at the unexpected words.
“There’s a way to understand you?”
Her heart pounded at the man’s firm reply.
There is a way.
And this could have a great connection to your sister.
The key to getting closer to her sister. This man seemed to be saying he had it.
“Would you like to know?”
She answered the man’s strange question unconsciously.
“…I’m curious. Tell me.”
She had no choice but to change her attitude toward the man.
His Spearman attribute aside, this man had something she did not.
She had to know.
“The method is simple.”
Without realizing it, she cocked her head to the side.
She didn’t think it was simple.
But the man spoke as if it were too easy.
