I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 25. Glesia’s Thoughts (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
When someone is unfamiliar with meeting other people, they cannot naturally engage in relationships with strangers.
One should try to get to know other people and initiate many conversations frequently, in order to gradually become accustomed to interpersonal relationships.
And the more introverted a person was, the fewer people they would interact with. It would almost always be people they were familiar with, since they could converse without concern or worry.
All applied to Glesia.
She didn’t know anyone at the Academy. In fact, she didn’t usually meet people outside the Academy.
Because she was usually used to being alone.
Even her main hobby was reading before she discovered her attribute.
She looked at the people walking in groups of two or three after the entrance ceremony.
Glesia was a bit stunned.
How did they all group together so quickly?
Her sister told her she had to try and get along with the others. It wasn’t as easy as she had thought it would be.
She found it strange to approach anyone or respond when someone unfamiliar tried to engage her in conversation.
She even felt anxious looking at all the cadets around her.
It’s definitely uncomfortable to be around so many people.
So her gaze moved to one place naturally.
Towards Class C, which was quite far away from Class A, where she was.
There was a person there who was not uncomfortable with his behavior, who was self-confident and listened to another talking to him calmly.
She could distinguish him without difficulty among the C-class cadets because his appearance stood out – easily found because of his peculiar characteristics.
They had met just a few days before, but they had established a relationship that could not be considered normal, due to the fact that it was based on her being able to relax and understand him. She felt comfortable when she had conversed with him. Even if she was silent, he did not reproach her, nor did he look uncomfortable.
She could feel again that this man was different from the others.
However, at that moment…
She had no choice but to turn her gaze to the man who was practically glued to her.
“…Glesia. Did you find the entrance ceremony very boring?”
She gave him a short answer, indifferent to his response.
The first thing that had struck her was that he had the uniform of his own class, blond hair and a distinctly handsome appearance.
He tried to talk to her often during the entrance ceremony.
She already knew this man’s name because of his famous legendary attribute. And when she was near him for the first time, she felt that he really was special.
But soon she realized that he did not live up to her personal expectations.
I guess I expected too much.
She thought as she looked at him.
“Glesia, if you want we can take a look at the Academy together. It’s my first day here too, so I thought it would be nice to do it with you.”
Most of all, the kind way he spoke to her seemed strange to her.
He was far from being able to consider himself as an ordinary man, and obviously his voice reflected that in his confident tone. So did his eyes as they looked at each other.
This man is confident. She thought.
However, she remembered the man named Han Seong.
Two men: Leonhard and Han Seong. They were both confident.
But a very different confidence.
Leonhard was confident, even proud of himself.
Perhaps it was natural.
He not only had an outstanding attribute, but also good looks. Even now she could sense how the other cadets around him were looking at him, adjusting themselves in deference to him. Posted only on NovelUtopia
And Leonhard seemed to assume they would all act the same.
Suddenly she understood.
She felt no emotion looking at Leonhard, a superficially extraordinary man.
The reason was too simple.
It was too obvious.
This man was confident because he had reason to back it up. Even she could understand why he acted so confidently toward her.
Leonhard was a man easy for her to understand.
So she was not interested in him.
He asked her awkwardly because she was still silent.
Whatever interest left in him vanished with that question.
When she was with Han Seong, questions flooded her mind. Here, nothing could be learned regardless of what she might ask – if she could be bothered enough to ask.
