After a pause, she opened her mouth at his stare.
“Luna. My attribute is Battle Healing. Level 2.” She said only what was necessary in a halting voice. Then she looked away. At least she was showing a modicum of sincerity during her brief participation in the conversation.
“I’m sorry,” Millia quickly spoke up. “Luna isn’t used to interacting with people other than me. I don’t want you to think badly about her. Luna… perhaps you could speak more kindly? We’re sitting here with another cadet.”
“I really…” Luna trailed off for a moment, then said firmly, “I’ve spoken nicely now. I did my best.” Han couldn’t help but chuckle inwardly when he saw the exchange between the two of them. He knew Luna was arrogant with others, so he knew that she had really tried her best.
I’m glad I took the initiative.
He honestly hadn’t even planned or wanted to approach her because he thought he would never fit in. But there was a facilitator named Millia that made it seem possible.
The moment he smiled softly, he popped the straw into his mouth.
Suddenly she felt Millia’s strange look.
It didn’t seem like a normal attitude to him.
“…Huh?” Millia turned her head with a slightly panicked expression when Luna called her name.
“The desserts here are pretty good. I’d like to go order some with you.” The other girl nodded awkwardly at Luna’s suggestion.
Han immediately added, “That’s a great idea.I’ll have apple pie, please.” His suggestion hinted that they should order his dessert.
Luna stood up without answering.
“Okay. Is an apple pie enough?” Millia asked. “I can order something else for you.” Han took a moment to compose his answer.
“Then order me one of your favorite desserts.”
“Agreed.” Millia left the table with a smile, accompanied by Luna.
He couldn’t help but mutter as he was left alone.
“…This, huh.” His heart was pounding.
Isn’t that a green light?
It seemed to him that Millia showed clear signs of attraction. Her soft tone, her strange look. Even her consideration for him.
It was as if she was genuinely interested in him.
Is this a misunderstanding on my part?
Han asked himself. He began to reanalyze the matter.
He had always had a fair appraisal of himself since he had fallen into this world, because his appearance was peculiar to other people. Anyone could tell that he was an Asian among Westerners. This world was set in the West because Leonhard was the main character written by a westerner.
But he couldn’t dismiss the sudden thought, even if he thought it didn’t make sense. This conversation was easier than he had anticipated. Millia answered him kindly from the start. Even he was comfortable in this situation.
Millia is very different.
He was now with them because Millia had acted pleasantly.
The current circumstances made him feel strange emotions.
“I must first analyze calmly.” He tried to suppress his strumming heart. It was always good to receive someone’s goodwill or affection. And he couldn’t stop his heart from racing when a woman as attractive as Millia showed him affection. He had to be careful because he might be wrong.
However, his heart beat like a fool when he realized that he was interested.
The two returned with desserts after a little while.
“Han Seong, did you wait too long?” Millia asked with a gentle smile as she held a tray with several desserts. He shook his head.
“No, I didn’t wait long.” He kept eye contact with her because people’s eyes don’t lie. Millia’s clear blue eyes were full of sweetness. It was clearly a subtle look of affection, but at least he could be sure that she didn’t hate him. Posted only on NovelUtopia
As soon as they sat down, Millia gave him one of her chocolate desserts, in addition to the apple pie he had ordered. Even her gestures in giving them to him seemed strange.
Millia is close to my ideal type.
Not only did she treat him gently, but she also had a sweet voice. Her charms had made a great impression on him. The more he thought about it, the more his heart raced.
He could not rush this. He had to check her feelings little by little. Then he reached for and grabbed a fork to cut the apple pie.
Suddenly, he felt a light touch on his knee.
He was stunned, and looked across.
Luna looked at him blankly, so he began to doubt himself. But soon after, she began to mouth words with her lips.
