I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 13. A Way to Understand Him (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Fafa
Han Seong pondered as he looked at Glesia who answered him with a question.
This is an opportunity.
And one that would not be repeated again.
Right now he had nothing.
He didn’t have a good attribute, a reliable family, contacts, nor funds…
He really had nothing.
And as Glesia was saying, even if someone like him managed to get into the Academy, he didn’t exactly have a promising future ahead of him.
No matter how hard he tried, he would always be swimming against the current.
But, if he was able to get close to Glesia, who had a unique grade attribute? If he was able to get Glesia to trust him, and her for him to trust her?
Life at the Academy would completely change.
There were 4 classes at the Great Royal Academy, class A, B, C, and D.
Both class A and class B, were classified as higher classes.
Both Class C and Class D, were classified as lower classes.
In addition, there were exams that all four classes had to take together.
The first awakening of the protagonist Leonhard was during a class together. Han Seong could still remember the details of the exam. Posted only on NovelUtopia
The reason for these external joint classes was to foster harmony, unity and equality.
It was also intended to keep the superior class students from being arrogant.
Even these types of exams served to help everyone develop their social skills.
Glesia would probably be assigned to the A class. He would like to be able to team up with her.
He would practically be assured of a higher score than other students.
He had almost all the knowledge about the exams since he had previously read the novel.
His mind was like an Academy cheat sheet.
Although he knew all the exams, he lacked the power for practice.
But Glesia could complete them properly.
He gulped hard, swallowing his saliva.
He was faced with a great opportunity. Another fork in his life.
He had to perform well here.
After he had organized his thoughts, he made eye contact with Glesia, who was waiting for his response.
“Glesia, if you intend to understand me in a short time, I will tell you that it is almost impossible.”
“It is impossible for me to understand you in a short time…”
“But there is a simple method. You can spend time with me. Whether you like it or not, if you spend more time with me, you will succeed in understanding me, naturally.”
…His heart was pounding hard as he spoke.
He wondered if his words were actually true, or if they would really work.
Or if his words would not be convincing.
Now that he was talking to Glesia, who until a moment ago he thought was ignoring him, he realized that her thoughts were different from his own.
He was sure that Glesia did not look down on him.
Rather, Glesia was very curious about him.
He didn’t know why she was curious about how he was so confident, but clearly she showed an abnormal interest in him. She wanted to understand him.
Even though she had a unique grade attribute, her interest was so great that she approached him first to ask for a conversation.
Glesia stared at him for his words.
He had practically hinted to her that they should be together.
He hoped she would take the initiative if she wanted to understand him.
And the more time they spent together, the closer he could get to her.
“Do we have to spend time together?” she groaned.
Glesia answered hesitantly. He answered with the corners of his mouth turned up.
“I understand that you don’t like the idea because I have a common grade attribute. But if you want to understand me, spending time with me will get you closer to the answer.”
As he spoke he felt like he was in a gambling game.
The odds were very low.
It was like hoping to win with a bad poker hand.
Somehow he had to get this woman with a unique grade attribute to relate closely to him.
Still, he was not to appear subservient.
It would be all over if he adopted a demeaning posture.
Glesia was showing interest in his attitude.
“So, how long should I be with you?”
Glesia’s answer was close to a green light.
“It’s not up to me to determine how long. Because it is not my decision. It is for you to decide how long it will take you to understand me if you spend time with me. And if you want to spend time with me, I don’t mind. I’ll try to make time for that.”
He modulated his voice so that his words sounded serious.
He emphasized that they should spend time together without showing any trace of desperation.
Glesia did not respond to his words.
She stared at him. Her eyes did not reveal her thoughts.
His heart was pounding.
Accept my offer! Please.
He remained indifferent. But inside him anxiety overflowed.
He felt an anguish similar to the one he had felt two months earlier, when he had undergone an attribute test.
Soon there was a response.
It was not words, but an action.
