I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 50. Carly Ishtar (2)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
Carly Ishtar, the current C-class instructor, opened her mouth.
“All the cadets here have received combat-related attributes. But how many will be on the battlefield in the future? With that in mind, raise your hand, cadets, who want to be on the battlefield after graduation.”
As soon as Carly’s words were finished, one by one each of the cadets around Han raised their hands. It seemed that some raised their hands because they were moved by her words, and still others did so without hesitation as if they were not afraid to be on the battlefield.
Of course, there were cadets who did not raise their hands. But Dave, who was next to him, also raised his hand.
At that moment, Han felt he was in a bind. My goal has been to be able to live well in this world ever since I fell into it.
He was content to have a comfortable life. He hoped to enter the Academy, graduate with a suitable score, and be chosen by a high-ranking nobleman to live as a knight or do something that suited his attribute.
That was all he had ever wished for.
But… Now he felt he was being too lazy.
He had a belief that the main character would take care of everything. In the future, there would be countless adversaries and adversities. It was his hope that Leonhard would overcome everything with an indomitable will.
He was convinced of it. That was one of the reasons why he had read all the volumes of the Great Royal Academy novel. The novel certainly had some attractive heroines, but that was not the main reason. It was the attitude of the main character. His indomitable will was what he liked the most.
Leonhard overcame any adversity with an iron will. Also, despite his exceptional Legendary grade attribute and outstanding talent, the main character never belittled or underestimated others.
Han was attracted to this ideal personality. It was like watching a popular manga for boys from the old days. It had the potential to touch anyone’s heart more so than other novels where adversity was easily resolved. Posted only on NovelUtopia
This world was changed.
Some things were completely different. Glesia was assigned to the same class as Leonhard, compared to the novel. In addition, Luna and Millia, who could be considered helpers to the main character, were assigned to the same class as him, instead of Class B in the original novel.
That was not even including the fact that yesterday, he had fought against the main character to a standstill.
These events did not exist in the original story. Yes. This was definitely a different world.
It had a different direction than the original story.
Suddenly, he lost his train of thought because he felt countless gazes.
He soon realized why so many cadets were looking at him. Carly stood on the platform and stared at him. He obviously wasn’t the only cadet who didn’t immediately raise his hand.
However, she was only looking at him. Her eyes held obvious disappointment. It even seemed that she had not opened her mouth to give him time. He felt her asking him with her eyes to raise his hand.
“……” He slowly raised his hand as he sighed inwardly.
Honestly, now he was rethinking what he should do for his future. He wondered if it was right to live like this, thinking of his own comfort as he planned.
He felt confused. Would he be able to live with such conformity that would be enforced if he went straight to the front? If he didn’t join, what would that mean for the fate of the Empire? Would Leonhard really be able to overcome all that was to come? Those worries resonated in his heart.
Maybe it wasn’t right for him to live idly knowing what would happen in the future.
And at that moment, Han noticed Carly’s corners curl into a slight smile. It looked like a smirk. Even he felt embarrassed for no reason.
I should have raised my hand a long time ago if I was going to do it in the end.
He did not raise his hand because he felt obligated. But some of the cadets watching would think he felt pressured to do so.
When he finally raised his hand all the way, Carly stroked her red hair.
