I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 6. Entrance Exam to the Great Royal Academy (4)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Fafa
When Carly mentioned the word effort, he nodded with the most humble smile he could.
“No matter the attribute we receive, striving to be better is the best we can do.” Han said earnestly.
That was a sentence quoted from a famous article Han had read. As expected, Carly laughed for a moment.
Anyone who looked at her would realize that she had liked him.
“Well, it was a satisfactory response. Proceed forward immediately.”
He felt a surge of hope at the words of Carly, who instructed him in the place of the supervisor. He moved toward the scarecrow.
He drew the iron spear behind his back and took a stance immediately.
He reassured himself.
The supervisor did not control or rush candidates who had spoken directly to an instructor, so Han had the opportunity to take his time. It wasn’t a huge advantage, but definitely a benefit.
I’ll demonstrate a strong move.
Naturally, he remembered that he unlocked the Ichi move when he reached Spearman level 3.
His attribute seemed simple, but he could make the most of it.
The moment a person in this world receives an attribute, they instinctively discover how they can use it accordingly.
If someone receives a fire-type attribute, that person will immediately be able to use fire without the need to learn any concepts.
And most importantly, there was an absolute difference between a level 2 and 3 attribute.
From level 3 onwards, one could naturally understand the concept of “mana”.
A minuscule amount of blue mana gathered at the tip of the spear, because his mana statistic had a low value. But even that made a big difference as opposed to having no mana at all.
There was a huge difference in destructive power, durability and even maneuverability, in weapons that were infused with mana.
He twisted his waist as much as he could as he took a step forward.
The spear blade struck the left side of the scarecrow’s head.
He regained his posture without even giving himself time to regulate his breathing.
His hands were shaking steadily as he held the spear. He had just hit a scarecrow made of steel, his adrenaline was running, but he tried to remain calm.
The attack was just the beginning, he also needed to take care of the final stance.
He believed that taking an adequate final stance would leave a good impression upon the instructors.
As he looked at the instructors, he could feel Carly showing her curiosity in him.
Of course, the other two instructors were looking at him coldly, but that didn’t faze him.
“What’s your name?”
Since he has made a good impression on Carly, she politely asked him his name with a smile.
“My name is Han Seong.”
She looked beautiful to Han when she enunciated his unusual name in this world so clearly.
In fact, she already looked beautiful with the corners of her lips turned up.
“You’ve done well. I’ll be waiting for you.”
He replied in a loud and excited voice. Since she was smiling, he slowly returned to his position.
The other candidates looked at him in surprise, because he didn’t head for the exit like the others.
After a candidate’s exam was over, most of them exit immediately after the supervisor’s harsh words or lack of any words from anyone at all. However, the candidates were allowed to stay and instead watch the proceeding people’s exam.
Since he didn’t leave, everyone stared at Han.
And, yet again, his gaze met with the gaze of the woman with blue hair.
A woman who had an unusual attribute that produced strong winds when she swung the sword she wielded. Of course, he had no doubt that he would pass the entrance exam by Carly’s reaction to his mediocre attribute.
Carly had not only directly spoken to Han, but she even made a cryptic statement confirming that he would definitely pass the exam.
But he also knew he wouldn’t get a better evaluation score than the blue-haired woman. He hoped that she would scarcely show her skill so as to not upstage his efforts.
Please, please show your skill in moderation…
This world was based on attributes. Since Spearman was a common grade attribute, he could notice the prejudice in the contemptuous looks of the other two instructors. Posted only on NovelUtopia
Therefore, he wanted that blue-haired woman to moderate her display of power so that Han would be assigned to a high class.
“So, candidate number 497, please stand in the center. First introduce your attribute, then the examination will begin immediately.”
Han stood calmly in his position as he listened to the supervisor’s voice.
And he also needed to know the name of the attribute she had.
Soon passed from candidate 497 to candidate 499. All of them headed straight for the edit following their exam. Finally, it was candidate 500’s turn- the blue haired woman.
“So, candidate number 500, please stand in the center. First introduce your attribute, then the examination will begin immediately.”
The blue-haired woman walked slowly at the supervisor’s words.
Then she looked at Han strangely, because he was still in the examination hall, watching.
Although she looked as cool as ever, something felt off about her presence when she was near Han.
Turning her head to the front, she calmly opened her mouth.
