I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 22. She came to see you (2)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
Luna turned her head almost right away after their eyes met. A strange feeling came over him. At first glance he felt he couldn’t get along with her, but now…
“Empire to Han Seong! You here?”
When Dave called out to him in a friendly tone, her gaze landed on him again.
“Geez. Are you already watching girls so soon?”
“No!” he said defensively. “It’s not like that…”
“Hey, I get you. We don’t have to hide anything from each other.” Dave leaned in closer, grinning widely. “You were watching the girl with pink hair. She’s in the same C1 class as us. She seemed like she had a pretty strong personality.” Dave said in a sly voice. Han smiled because he was really dumbfounded.
Me with that woman?
He hadn’t fallen in love with anyone yet. But it would certainly never be Luna.
His ideal type was a gentle woman with a good personality.
“I just happened to look at her. I’m not interested,” he said, trying to sound disinterested.
“Really?” Dave sounded skeptical, but didn’t push further. “Honestly, I think she gets attention just because she’s the prettiest in our class. But who would approach her when she’s got such a bad personality? It’s a shame.”
He was in complete agreement with Dave.
Luna Vermont. Objectively, she not only looked quite pretty, but her hair color was quite striking no matter who looked at her.
Even now people were looking at her, but no one was approaching her.
In a way, her role as a heroine forced her to relate to the friendly Leonhard.
But I have no reason to get involved with her.
He thought that, even if he was in the same class as Luna, he should avoid her as much as possible so as not to cause unnecessary trouble.
“By the way, Han Seong, what’s your attribute?”
Although he expected Dave to mention it at some point, he hesitated for a moment when he asked the question. He kept his appearance immutable.
“Yes. It’s a common grade attribute.”
He continued speaking nonchalantly.
He really didn’t have high expectations because it was Dave who approached first.
It would be all over if Dave showed a rude attitude after knowing his attribute.
Dave blinked in surprise.
“You think it’s strange too, right?” Han asked him with a cool smile to ascertain his stance.
“I must admit, I wasn’t expecting it. I assumed you had a rare grade attribute. I never imagined that you had a common grade attribute…. Then again, I guess the Spearman attribute is short-ranged.”
He felt it again as he answered briefly.
In this world there was a clear distinction according to a person’s attributes.
Attributes were classified according to their grade: legendary, unique, rare and common.
They were also divided into short and long range.
Short-range attributes were considered inferior to long-range attributes. In that sense, anyone who had the short-range attribute could consider it as insignificant. Posted only on NovelUtopia
Not only was his a common grade attribute, it was also a short range attribute.
Dave still looked at him in surprise.
If he belittled him he would not allow him to spend time with him.
Dave’s reaction was a little different than he expected.
“You really are amazing, Han Seong.”
Dave nodded calmly. No one had ever said anything like that to him before.
“You have a common grade attribute. But now you are in Class C1. So how strong are you?”
“What do you mean…? I only have one common grade attribute.”
“I know, but that’s even more surprising. Normally people with common attributes are assigned to Class D, right? But you made it to the highest section of Class C with a common grade attribute. Doesn’t that show how strong you are?”
He showed interest rather than belittling him.
His eyes seemed sincere.
It was the first time anyone had ever reacted like that when hearing about his attribute.
He asked Dave, puzzled.
“That’s the first time anyone has ever said that to me, Dave. Thanks. What’s your attribute?”
“My attribute is… Concentrated Reinforcement.”
“It’s a rare grade attribute that in a nutshell allows me to strengthen anything. For example, I can strengthen my limbs. I can even strengthen whatever weapons I have in my hands with a little more application. Actually, uh, I still don’t have enough practice to improve weapons…”
He smiled awkwardly as he said the last words.
“But still,” Han pressed, “isn’t that a good attribute?”
“It’s nothing compared to those who have really good attributes.”
Dave shrugged. He didn’t understand anything.
Concentrated Reinforcement… As soon as he heard the description, he thought of the endless possibilities of that attribute.
Although it could be seen as a simple physical strengthening, this attribute was certainly much better in comparison, because Dave could use some strengthened weapon or also strengthen a tool.
Not only could it be put to good use in direct combat, but also in a support role.
Didn’t he look down on me even though he has such a cheat attribute?
That was even more confusing to him.
Dave’s footsteps stopped abruptly.
“… I think she came to see you,” Dave said, gesturing with his head.
