I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 51. Why Does She Speak With Such Charm? (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
“…Yes, Instructor?” He responded, puzzled, at Carly’s sudden call. She smiled oddly.
“Follow me after class today.”
From then on, the lesson went on in a quiet atmosphere.
Her words remained brief but forceful. Although Carly’s presence was overwhelming, most could easily understand what she was saying. Since it was the first lesson, she didn’t want to explain anything too difficult.
The lessons began with the following: how to master the mind, how to manage emotions, etc. Unexpectedly, Carly emphasized the importance of things related to self-control.
And so, the time passed on and on until the afternoon came.
After she sorted through the teaching materials she had brought with her, Carly concluded the first class.
“Well, that’s all for today. I’m glad you listened to the lesson carefully; now, the rest of the time is free. You can go to the training camp assigned to the Class C cadets to improve yourselves. You can take a break. Or you guys can make friends with other cadets, which is one way to adjust to this Academy.”
When he heard those words, his mind became chaotic.
The class was over, but he was not free like the other cadets.
Carly asked him to follow her, but her asking was more similar to a command. He didn’t even have the right to reply.
How the hell was he going to refuse under the circumstances? Carly gave him a soft but direct look as he stepped off the platform.
He felt as if it was a sign.
She was reminding him to follow her.
At that moment, Dave lightly patted him on the shoulder.
“Hey, Han. I don’t know what Instructor Carly wants, but do your best.”
“…Yes, I must.”
Dave stood up when he heard his reply. He stood up as well. He was still puzzled as he organized the basic instruction items he had received.
At that moment Dave walked over to a girl standing nearby. “Ailee. I’m going to go to the lunch room. I’d like to go with your group, if you don’t mind.”
“Oh! Sounds good to me. Let’s go together then.”
“Thank you.” Unlike him, Dave seemed to already know other cadets.
Is this okay for me long term? he wondered.
The normal thing would be for him to try to relate to them like Dave. But could that even be possible now? Between his fight with Leonhard yesterday, and now being singled out by Carly Ishtar of all people, his chances of being relatable had been shot down into the deepest ocean.
Suddenly he couldn’t help but feel isolated, though he knew Carly didn’t do it on purpose.
He walked slowly lost in thought.
“Haah.” He exhaled a small sigh to ease his mind.
Now that he thought about it carefully, the situation wasn’t so bad.
It was good that Carly was the instructor for his class. And it would be even better if Han could relate to her. Most importantly, she seemed to think well of him.
I have to look on the bright side.
As he was about to leave the classroom with that thought in mind, Han felt a strange look.
As he looked around, two pink pigtails stood out – Luna Vermont.
“Hmph!” As soon as their gazes met, she turned her head with a snort. He did not attach any importance to her behavior.
“Millia,” she demanded to the girl next to her, ”Let’s go to the Academy lunchroom. I’m hungry.”
“All right. But even though we’re together, I think your twisted attitude is no good.” The short black-haired woman next to him told her.
He couldn’t help but wonder. Could Luna’s attitude change if Millia asked her to? He was curious.
“I just want to spend time with you, Millia. I don’t want to get close to any other cadets.”
“Luna, actually…” Millia stopped her words as if to avoid trouble.
He smiled. If even Millia couldn’t do anything, then Luna wouldn’t change no matter who suggested it. So he internally expressed his admiration again. Leonhard, how were you able to deal with her?
He couldn’t believe that Luna was a popular heroine in the original story. Now that he knew her personally, he didn’t like her at all.
As he left the classroom, he saw Carly leaning against the opposite wall. He couldn’t help but be startled with how she looked at him, one eyebrow cocked, mouth in a thin line, with the teaching material held securely by both arms across her chest. Posted only on NovelUtopia
“You’re a little late, Han Seong.”
“Don’t worry about it. Don’t be so nervous. It’s not that I’m going to do anything bad to you or reprimand you. I just wanted to have lunch with you. By the way, I heard about the fight yesterday.” Carly got off the wall and started walking down the corridor with a bright smile.
Han was confused even though he instinctively followed her.
It’s quite a contrast.
Carly’s personality in the classroom was completely different from what he saw now. Now he felt comfortable with her. As if she had become someone else.
“Ah, Cadet Han Seong. Perhaps I interrupted some previous engagement you had with another cadet?” Carly asked cautiously. He shook his head.
