I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 69. Millia Is Strange (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
Millia’s attitude is strange.
Luna had thought this quite a few times the last few days. She felt Millia had changed, but she didn’t know why. It was like it came from her intuition.
Millia still treated her the same way. They were still best friends. When she was lost in thought, Millia interrupted her with words.
“The exam was harder than I thought, what do you think?”
“…I think so too. I was confused by some answers.” She nodded, attentive to her friend’s response. Honestly, she felt the exam was easy. Her opinion greatly differed from Millia’s.
However, in these cases, Millia was usually right. Luna admired her intelligence.
The answers seemed obvious to me. I guess I was wrong.
Millia seemed a little anxious about the exam. She had always been a very honest person, so Luna had no reason to distrust her judgment.
Nothing really had changed about Millia. Despite this sense that there was something different about Millia. Why did she have this sense about her best friend?
That thought stuck in her mind.
Millia seemed slightly different from her perspective. Although she behaved as usual, something about her gave Luna the feeling that she was someone else.
Why is that?
They had spent eight years as inseparable friends. It was always nice to spend time with her. It was better than spending time anywhere else. In order to spend more time with Millia, Luna even decided to limit herself in the entrance exam.
Now she felt Millia didn’t have the same desire to get closer to her.
“… Huh? Did you say something, Luna?”
“No, it ‘s nothing.” In the end, Luna couldn’t tell her what she was thinking. She wouldn’t understand.
She really was worried. She wished Millia would receive her words with the same warmth as before, but she wasn’t sure how to bring it up. Sadness piled up in her heart.
And she could speculate the reasons. Sometimes she noticed that Millia’s gaze went to a completely different place, a person. When she suddenly remembered the common denominator, she squeezed her hand involuntarily.
It was mainly directed toward a man. A man with dark black hair. A truly unfortunate man.
His name… Han Seong.
She could clearly remember his voice when he told her at the entrance ceremony that he preferred to avoid her because of his unpleasant personality. Even he changed his seat.
She would not forget the foolish man who tried to sit next to her. However, the rumors that spread about his sparring against Leonhard were unbelievable.
Leonhard, who had been chosen to give the speech at the entrance ceremony, had tied with that simple man. The very thought was ridiculous.
Absurd. She believed without a doubt that Leonhard had simply let his guard down. She didn’t like this man named Leonhard either. He seemed too full of himself.
On the other hand, she wondered if she had underestimated Han Seong because he had a common attribute. She immediately shook her head.
She didn’t want to think about that man anymore. All she cared about now was Millia. Their relationship would improve if she was nicer to Millia, if she could spend more time with Millia.
Suddenly, she heard footsteps approaching. She saw Millia’s gaze shift there. Then she also looked – and frowned.
What on earth…?
Suddenly, she saw the man named Han Seong.
She wondered why he approached.
“Hi. Can we talk for a moment?” He spoke in such a soft voice that she felt overwhelmed. He behaved so differently from the entrance ceremony that her mind couldn’t even assimilate it. Posted only on NovelUtopia
Goosebumps rose on both her arms.
“What the fuck…??!!” She felt Millia hastily grab her arm so she couldn’t finish speaking.
“Yes! Okay, that’s okay. Your name is Han Seong?” Millia asked as she looked at the man with a broad smile on her face. At that moment, Luna’s boiling heart shrank as if it had frozen.
She smiled too as she looked at the man she hated the most. She couldn’t understand why Millia had that look on her face.
No, Luna really didn’t want to understand. But she wouldn’t be left behind by her best friend.
