I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 46. First Day at the Great Royal Academy (2)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
In this world called GRA, strangely enough, there were no high-ranking attributes that were compatible with the art of the spear.
On the other hand, just by looking at the common grade attribute ‘swordsmanship’, one knew that there were not just dozens of high grade attributes that were compatible with it, but even decent common grade attributes. Even if it was under the same name of swordsmanship, each person received a different attribute.
A simple example was Leonhard’s Legendary Grade attribute – First Heavenly Sword. When his attribute level would eventually go up in the distant future, he would actually display ridiculous swordsmanship that could contain heaven in the sword. Compared to the other characters in the story who had similar swordsmanship abilities, his attribute could be argued to just be more uniquely powerful. Other swordsmen had either durability-focused attributes or charge-related attributes. Not as overpowered, but deadly in their own right.
But the art of the spear…
“It’s curious. Why isn’t there a better attribute for spear art?” he asked aloud. The more he thought about it, the deeper his regret became.
If there was a higher grade of the art of the spear, he could have used it as a reference to further improve his art of the spear. Because that meant there would be a guide or a pioneer to follow.
He walked for a long time lost in such thoughts. Without realizing it, he arrived at the entrance of the faculty, the largest building around. It still amazed him even though he had seen it yesterday. Posted only on NovelUtopia
Maybe everything seems different because things went well yesterday. Now he could see everything in a positive light.
When he got to the classroom where he was supposed to be for six months, the door was open.
He took a deep breath, mindful of his stance and appearance. Then he walked in, in a dignified and professional manner.
“It’s Han Seong, right?”
He immediately heard voices. As soon as he entered the classroom, he could feel eyes staring at him. But he was unfazed by their stares.
He had expected the results of the fight to spread throughout the academy. He looked around without worrying about the stares.
Surely he is here. It didn’t take him long to find Dave in the classroom. Dave looked back at him, and smiled.
“Hey, Han Seong.” He walked over to join Dave, sitting down on the empty seat next to him.
“Dave,” Han began, “I’m really sorry about yesterday-“
“Forget about it. You don’t have to be sorry about anything. A Class A cadet came looking for you; you couldn’t stay with me. By the way, what the hell’s going on? It’s been said that you fought against Leonhard, the best cadet in this year’s entrance exam… I’ve heard quite a few rumors, but what do you say?” Dave asked with a curious look as soon as he sat down.
When he pondered how he should answer, he decided not to complicate things. Now that rumors have spread, it would be ridiculous to try to hide anything.
“Somehow,” he deliberately left Glesia’s name out, “I ended up involved in sparring with Leonhard. And it didn’t turn out badly. By the way, did the rumors about yesterday’s fight spread that far?”
“Much more than you can imagine. Because some cadets from our same class saw you yesterday when you left with the A-class cadets, and then some of them said they hung outside the A-class training facility to hear how the fight went. Besides, I also heard that the result of the fight has spread among the instructors…”
“Among the instructors?”
“Some of the instructors visited our classroom before you arrived. They said they wanted to see you.”
When Dave said that, Han paused to think for a moment.
Was it that important? He definitely knew that the consequences of the fight would be great for Leonhard and himself.
He had anticipated interest from the cadets in his own classroom, but was surprised that even a couple instructors had come to the classroom to see him. More than that made him skeptical.
The normal thing would be for all the attention to be focused on Leonhard. The best in the entrance exam, having a Legendary grade attribute. So the instructors would naturally be very interested in Leonhard.
He didn’t expect that to be any different even after yesterday’s fight. Attention was only supposed to be directed towards the main character of this world.
But now the focus was also on him. He was a bit puzzled. Sure, it had been a draw, but Leonhard’s attribute had evolved to a greater version. His own upgraded attribute paled in comparison.
Honestly, he was more confident after his attribute was raised to Level 4, confident enough to accept that attention.
I’m sure I’m strong.
Of course, that didn’t apply in all cases.
Cadets had thousands of different attributes, and there were actually a decent amount of them that could put him in an unfavorable position. This meant that there were times when he could lose to a cadet in the same C-class.
“Han Seong. I expected you to be strong because of your confidence. But I didn’t expect you to be so strong that you could compete against Leonhard to show your capabilities.”
“You’re exaggerating…” Han said, glancing around quickly to see how many people were paying attention.
“Didn’t you say it’s true, the fight, and what happened? Then you’re not in the C-class standard. You can’t be. Those instructors who evaluated you in the entrance exam must be blind to assign someone like you in Class C.” Han noticed Dave smiling awkwardly as he praised him.
“That’s a little embarrassing to hear,” Han demurred.
He spent some time to redirect the conversation, casually chatting with Dave about a few things.
Suddenly there was the sound of footsteps.
When he turned his head, he saw the woman walking into the classroom.
A flame-like redhead.
She had a slight smile on her beautiful face. She stood out in her sleek black suit, unique to the Great Royal Academy instructors.
“Could it be that you guys are so full of will because it’s the first day?”
Her charming voice showed her confidence. He stared blankly.
He wondered why this woman was in a Class C classroom. It really was unexpected.
An instructor with a unique grade attribute, although it could almost be considered legendary.
It was named the Bloody Dawn for a reason.
And she was also the instructor who had made a good impression on him during the entrance exam.
Carly Ishtar, herself, had now entered the C-class classroom.
