I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 61. Fight with Carly (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
Han flushed with embarrassment when Carly put the earrings on him, because she stood so close to him. Instead, he tried to concentrate on using the magical engineering item.
The method to activate Elimian’s Compassion was conceptualized in the novel. The author of the novel had been very detailed and descriptive, meaning he knew how to use them. The moment he activated the ability, he understood the magnitude of the effect.
This… is crazy…
A groan of pain escaped him as he felt every bit of the absurd load being added to his entire body. This was beyond his expectations.
If yesterday’s fight with Leonhard had allowed him to upgrade quickly, today the magical engineering item called Elimian’s Compassion allowed him to grow sustainably.
It was as if he could visualize a future path because of the pain load. Once he got back into a standing position, gritting his teeth against the pain, he felt the strength of endurance flood into him.
The more pain he could endure while just standing here… He could overload his body in training. That way, he could advance beyond his limits. The magical engineering item could induce him into an extreme state difficult to achieve in ordinary training. It would undoubtedly increase the effectiveness of the training.
“Yes, Instructor?” He smiled unconsciously, understanding what she was about to say. Of course, he couldn’t keep any magical engineering items, but if he maintained a good relationship with her, he could use it quite often. When that desire flashed in his eyes, Carly’s mouth curved strangely.
“I plan to help Cadet Han Seong with his training for a while? What do you think? Would you like me to do it?”
“Yes. I’ll help you personally.” He couldn’t help but look at Carly in disbelief.
It seemed like good things were happening to him now, all at the same time. He wondered how long he could wear these earrings today, but time was not important if Carly would directly help him with his training.
Her vast experience would be a great asset.
“It would be a great honor for me to have the instructor give me her time.” His heart was very grateful to Carly.
“Well, no need for flattery,” she laughed. “I, too, am also curious about your power. I devote time to you because I want to.” Han nodded, unsure of what else he could say. Then he turned his gaze to the inside of the place.
It wasn’t small even though it was Carly’s private training camp. Four or five people could comfortably train at the same time in this space. He wasn’t too surprised by the size of the space. After all, it belonged to the instructor nicknamed Bloody Dawn. This was proof she received great support from both the Academy and the Empire.
“I’m sure I’ll be useful to you, Cadet Han Seong, right?”
“Mm, yes,” Han agreed. He wondered what Carly really meant by those words.
“I have heard many things about your sparring against Leonhard. His sword against your spear. So I think it would be useful to try to recreate those conditions now.”
He gulped as she grabbed a sword nearby.
This is weird… and it’s going to hurt…
Nevertheless, he nodded quickly.
“I appreciate it.”
“You still show confidence. Then let’s not waste any more time.” She walked over to one side of the mat and stood there, expectant. Han reached for a spear from the rack, then walked to face Carly on the opposite side. He set into his familiar stance, feeling the familiar coldness of iron spread through his hands.
Carly remained at the end of this set distance. He adjusted his stance slightly, but remained still. She relaxed her wrist slightly as she held the long sword in one hand. Her gaze contained a calmness that was hard to describe in words.
“You can attack me first in any way you wish. You can attack with all your might, you don’t have to worry about potentially injuring me, do you understand?”
“Yes, I understood,” Han replied with a slight smile. From the beginning, the thought about worrying about her never crossed his mind.
He didn’t think he was capable of hurting Carly Ishtar. A nickname like Bloody Dawn was only given to about twenty different people in the Empire’s timeline. She was one of the strongest currently in the world.
It was rumored that the number of monsters who lost their lives at her hands was too numerous to count. So he didn’t have to hold back.
Han concentrated on his breathing and posture as he prepared himself. When he calmed his breathing, he began to swing the spear in a clockwise rotating motion. Posted only on NovelUtopia
The spear swung continuously in an arc around him, as if enveloping him. His muscles began to relax. It had been less than a day since he had wielded the spear, but to do it again gave him a feeling of satisfaction.
“……!” He sprang forward.
