I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 73. A Different Man (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
As Millia ate her dessert, Han’s pie remained uneaten as he concentrated on Luna’s lip movements.
Finally, he understood what she meant.
Stay away… Millia?
He wasn’t sure what Luna had intended to communicate, but she moved her lips again. Finally, he could understand that she didn’t want him to make any move on Millia.
“……” He couldn’t help but smile.
“Han Seong, why are you smiling all of a sudden?” Millia asked while eating a dessert. He shook his head.
“It’s just that the desserts look very tasty.”
“Really?” she inquired. “You like desserts more than I thought you would.”
“I just don’t hate them.” He didn’t like desserts that were too sweet. And he preferred apple pie with pulp. Then he looked at Luna. She touched her dessert with her fork as if nothing had happened.
She looks like a child. The fact that Luna was afraid of losing her friend touched him. Now he understood why Luna was so quiet. And she meekly agreed to sit with him. She didn’t know how he would react, so her strategy was different.
Instead of simply preventing his approach, she preferred to personally tell him to stay away from Millia. Luna’s anxiety would not allow her to bear the uncertainty of her own relationship to Millia if he came any closer. She must have thought that rejecting him overtly all the time was not the right way.
He began to put the pieces he had cut from his apple pie into his mouth. The strong heartbeat he felt when he looked at Millia had noticeably diminished. Instead, several questions appeared in his empty heart.
Time passed as they each enjoyed their dessert.
The conversations between them consisted of Han Seong answering Millia’s curious questions. Occasionally, Luna would open her mouth to join the conversation.
And Luna’s gaze was always present. She seemed to expect him to obey her wishes. Her eyes were lovely. The bad feelings he had had for her disappeared like snow melting.
It’s hard to hate a woman who looks and thinks like a child. Now he felt like a fool. Luna was just expressing her feelings openly. She was too innocent. There was no point in trying to confront her at this point. It would be like an adult confronting a child.
He began to rethink it seriously.
If I got any closer to Millia from here… Luna would surely hate him deeply, since it seemed from the beginning that she didn’t like him. But on the other hand, if he could establish a general friendship with her, things would be completely different.
Luna had the Battle Healing attribute. Healing attributes were very valuable, regardless of level or grade. However, the effect of the Moon Battle Healing attribute was so powerful it could be considered cheating. It was so outstanding and overpowered in its own way that it could not be considered a rare grade attribute, and readers in his world had often complained about this inconsistency.
Luna was not one of the main heroines without reason. There was a critical situation that emerged in the second half of the novel. Luna’s Battle Healing attribute swooped in and saved Leonhard, who would have died. Posted only on NovelUtopia
If he could get closer to Luna, he would have a very useful attribute on his side. There were so many dangers everywhere that he could get injured at any time, whether in training or on a mission. It would be ideal to count with Luna.
Luna became such a valuable heroine in the novel that she was given higher priority than other people. Even the best potion could not compare to the full effects of the Battle Healing attribute she would later show.
What was more valuable than a life?
He looked at them as he picked up and began chewing a piece of the apple pie. They were of great importance in this world. It would be ridiculous to think that he had to choose between them now. It would be better to be able to count on both of them.
Suddenly he noticed Millia glancing sideways at him.
“……” When he made eye contact with Millia, she avoided his gaze with a smile. It looked like a flirtatious gesture, as if she had feelings for him.
But he still wasn’t sure what her feelings were.
It was just strange. He didn’t know if Millia had fallen in love with him at first sight, or if he had been too optimistic in thinking that she liked him. The agitation in his heart disappeared completely.
“Han Seong, where will we go after this?” Millia asked suddenly. He was surprised.
“After the coffee shop?”
“Yes. We still have time available, because we don’t have any commitments afterwards. If it’s okay with you, you can join us at the training camp.” He could not decipher her intentions from her sudden suggestion. However, it was exactly what he personally planned to do afterwards.
