I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 3. Entrance Exam to the Great Royal Academy (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Fafa
“How embarrassing…” Han sighed.
Unconsciously, he touched his face as he walked away from the training camp.
Despite being in the world of the Great Royal Academy, his body and figure hadn’t changed. He waved his hand out of habit, but it didn’t warrant him to receive such a cold stare from the woman.
Why on earth did she look at me so coldly?
Because of that, Han’s happiness at having reached Spearman level 3 was only temporary and vanished suddenly.
When talking to people, he believed that confidence was an important personality trait to have. Additionally, he had a rather pleasant face as a bonus. Nevertheless, the woman turned her head in such a mannerism as if she had seen some sort of goblin instead of a person waving at her.
“She was totally overreacting… I don’t think my face is so ugly that someone can’t even bear to look at it…” he muttered to himself.
As he was talking to himself, he began to feel even more embarrassed and regretful.
He had been looking for opportunities to approach her for the past two months every time he went to the training center, as Han had previously been blown away by the woman’s immense beauty, but he finally deduced that it would be impossible. She seemed like the type of person who would pull away the more someone attempted to get close, judging by her reaction to a simple wave.
He- embarrassingly enough- had expectations, but in the end, he obviously had no chance.
That was a bit disappointing.
If I established relationships with people with good attributes…
“It would be advantageous and an amazing help to me…” he whispered.
Han suddenly slapped his palms on his cheeks, trying to shake off those thoughts.
The entrance exam was in an hour, he couldn’t lose focus on what he had been working on for months so easily like that.
“Let’s go there with confidence.”
Since he had raised his Spearman attribute to level three, the hard work was done. He had prepared the best he could have possibly done for the entrance exam; all that was left was to go there with determination.
He took a step forward looking at the majestic Academy building in the distance.
All of a sudden, he felt paralyzed.
Someone’s strange gaze was observing him from a distance.
“Level 3?” a voice asked with shock back at the training camp Han had just left.
“Is that true?”
“It’s real. That light only appears when you reach level 3.”
“That’s impressive. But even if he’s that much of a hardworker, it’s still the Spearman attribute.”
“Still, isn’t it enough for him to be accepted into the Academy?”
“What’s the point of him entering the academy? Even though he has a high attribute level, his poor attribute is equivalent to even less than a level 1 magical attribute.”
Hearing these people’s words and the murmurs of others at the training camp, a woman frowned slightly as she began to stand up.
The woman- who had waist-length blue hair, a youthful face, and a strict, cold demeanor- began to walk.
Almost all eyes turned to her.
She did not fit in at all in this common, ordinary training camp. Her aura was almost inaccessible and strong. Posted only on NovelUtopia
Glesia, the name of the woman who was walking, kept quietly moving her feet despite the stares of the others at the camp.
She was thinking about the man who had just left the training camp.
So, his name is Han Seong…
When Glesia first saw him at the training camp, she didn’t even bother to look his way since it was rumored that he had a useless attribute.
However, as the days passed, she saw that Han kept coming back.
Glesia could not deny that his efforts were extraordinary.
Every morning he would enter the training camp and spend the whole day practicing to higher his Spearman attribute.
Normally when a person possesses such an inconsequential attribute, they quickly abandon the mere thought of entering the Academy, since it would be right to assume that they would never be able to get in.
But she thought that this man… this man was different.
He wielded his spear in the training camp only. To train, he would simply thrust the spear into the air repeatedly.
He just repeated very simple movements.
It was just that.
Han did not show any signs of fatigue, even though he did not produce any wind-like phenomena compared to when Glesia swung her sword. After the attribute test, she watched him wield the spear every day for two months.
Glesia saw Han try to higher his attribute every day, and often thought the same thing each time:
Why doesn’t he give up?
She had previously considered such a man a fool, a man with no talent striving for his greed of success.
His dedication seemed in vain to her; it was as if he was hoping to ignite exhausted ashes.
How could he try so hard?
She couldn’t even believe that the [Wind Guide] attribute, which she had attained after two months of hard work, was at the same level as that man. She also found it hard to accept that his insignificant attribute had improved to level 3.
As Glesia left the training camp, she stopped dead in her tracks.
The man was standing not too far away from her.
With his trademark black hair and coal-black clothes, even looking at him again, he still looked pitiful to her.
So, naturally, she averted her gaze from the man.
But, suddenly, she heard a slap coming from his direcction, so she looked at him again.
“Let’s go with confidence.” Han said.
She blinked with shock at the sound of his strong voice.
