I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 70. Millia Is Strange (2)

“Yes! Okay, that’s okay. Your name is Han Seong?” Millia answered so cheerfully that he was surprised for a moment.
“That’s right. You’re Cadet Millia, right?” He had obviously said the correct name the first time because she had it on the name tag, but Millia still nodded with a glamorous smile.
“Yes. You can talk to me with confidence. I assume you answered the ethics exam well, since you’ve been quick out of the classroom.” He blinked unconsciously as she looked at him admiringly.
Why is she being so nice?
Even if Millia didn’t have Luna’s unpleasant personality, he thought it wouldn’t be easy to have a conversation with her, since he just approached her out of nowhere. But her continuing this interaction was quite natural, weirdly so, so he decided to jump in and express himself openly.
“I’ll tell you what I think. I don’t know that we really have anything in common… we were just assigned to the same class. But because we got out of the exam around the same time, I wanted to develop a friendship with you. We can talk if you have time available. Would that be alright with you?” As Han spoke, his eyes unconsciously darted to Luna. Luna had a dumbfounded expression on her face as Millia held her arm.
Why is she being so quiet?
Millia nodded immediately.
“Oh, a friendship! I think that’s a good idea,” she responded positively. He turned his gaze back to her.
He stared into her light blue eyes, completely different from his own. She accepted his words so easily; it aroused his curiosity about her true intentions. If she had been more hesitant, he would have understood. She seemed eager, however, to accept his offer of friendship. But she looked away soon after they made eye contact.
Have I made a mistake?
While wondering why she avoided his gaze, Millia’s appearance caught his attention.
In the novel, she appeared as a secondary character who received little attention because of the heroine Luna, but now that he saw her up close, he realized her extraordinary beauty. She had a peculiar charm that immediately changed his impression.
What am I thinking about right now…
He immediately opened his mouth.
“Shall we go now then? I hear that there’s a nice coffee shop here in the academy. I think we could talk there.”
He didn’t look at Luna as he spoke. If he did, it would distract him, and he had to successfully continue the conversation he had started.
“I think it would be fine too,” Millia answered his request. “You think so too, Luna, right? Huh?” Millia had looked at Luna while asking, and had just stopped short, confusion on her pretty face. At that moment, Han thought her initiative had failed.
They would have to go to the coffee shop so the conversation could continue. But when Millia asked Luna for her opinion, he knew what the answer would be.
She would refuse.
He felt a deep regret. He didn’t know how many such opportunities would come in the future to make friends by using one-on-one meetings. This was a great opportunity that would be missed because of one person.
The interesting reason behind it all was that Millia suited Luna largely because she belonged to Vermont County. Of course she would stick with Luna. Posted only on NovelUtopia
Then he turned his gaze to Luna.
He thought Luna would immediately refuse, but she remained silent. She had a lost look as if her soul had left her body.
“Luna? I’m not the only one waiting, the other cadet is too.” When Millia urged her to answer, Luna’s eyes finally regained their sparkle.
Luna looked up at him immediately. He felt his heart drop. Her gaze was piercing, and her eyes looked very grim.
“… I agree,” Luna replied in a very low voice. He had already decided to turn around immediately, but spun back around upon her words registering in his mind.
“Huh?” He was dumbfounded. He doubted his ears for a moment.
She… didn’t reject it?
“Then let’s all go to the coffee shop together, Cadet Han Seong.” Millia’s soft voice caused him to respond as if he was in a trance-like state.
“You can just call me Han Seong.”
Milia, who nodded happily at his words, naturally turned her gaze towards Luna. He looked at her as well.
Luna immediately turned around to circle around behind Millia, thereby keeping him from seeing her face.
He didn’t believe this was real. When he pinched his thigh to check, the pain was too vivid.
How could this be real?
Then he walked to Millia’s side, who had stepped towards him. She looked up at him with a smile. But even though Millia focused her attention on him, his gaze strangely fell on Luna, who was walking silently on the other side of Millia.
What was going on…?
In the end, there were some things he couldn’t understand. He would have to accept that Luna was one of them.
