I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 76. A Different Fight (2)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
Luna looked at him with pure malice. Her eyes reflected her hatred. He couldn’t help but laugh, which increased her glower, because she looked like she was trying to humiliate him. She looked like a child whose toy had been snatched away from her. No doubt she was quite fragile.
“All right. Let’s fight.” He agreed to the fight, quickly glancing at Millia.
“Your attributes have two levels of difference. I think this sparring could be slightly dangerous.” As Millia spoke her mind, she seemed more mature than Luna.
“Yes.” Han Seong replied. “Can you look for the training camp instructor? Someone had better supervise the fight.”
“Okay.” Millia left quickly, seeking out the training camp instructor. She came back rather soon, accompanied by another person.
The instructor was a green-haired woman named Ludmina. Her unique grade attribute was at Level 7 – one level lower than Avalanche’s attribute.
“Is your sparring due to a personal conflict?” Han shook his head when she asked serenely.
“No.” As they both answered at the same time, Luna looked at him as if she was annoyed. She looked like her mental age had stopped at the level of an elementary school girl. However, though Luna’s emotions were clearly reflected in her demeanor, he didn’t feel that she had hidden bad intentions.
“Then it’s alright. Cadets, please take your places.”
The two widened their distance at the instructor’s voice.
The looks of the cadets around him caused him to flinch.
He had been in a similar situation, but now it felt different.
His fight with Leonhard had many spectators. Class A cadets had gathered to watch that fight. But the looks he got now were different.
He still remembered vividly how the A-class cadets looked at him with pity, or with contempt because of his common grade attribute Spearman.
Here, he felt assured that very few of the C-class cadets present at training camp underestimated him. In fact, more than half of them seemed eager to look at his capabilities in a fight.
Is this… similar to the look Leonhard received? He slowly raised the spear in preparation.
Of course, the handsome Leonhard was sure to get different looks due to the fact he had his Legendary grade attribute, but he still thought it would feel somewhat similar to the looks that the main character of this world received.
“Start the fight,” the instructor boomed.
Han didn’t attack first as he had done in other fights. He calmly waited for Luna to come and attack first. Sure, there was a big difference between their attribute levels, but he had a more human reason influencing him.
If he attacked first, he thought it might irreparably damage his relationship with Luna. She was not Leonhard, so he could overwhelm her.
Of course, he didn’t mean to belittle Luna. It was hard to point out the reality of their differences without making it sound that way. Even so, he had no intention of bragging. His goal was to just try to control this fight.
“I will show no mercy just because you’re Level 4.” Luna spoke with such confidence that he laughed.
“That’s fine. You can attack first.” When he said the same words Leonhard had said to him, Luna rushed in without hesitation. He stood in his position and watched.
He knew clearly that he had the advantage over Luna. He had to avoid acting impulsively.
Han wondered if Leonhard thought the same. Despite the gigantic grade differences between them, Leonhard had never disrespected him. In addition, he was always calm during the fight.
…These are things to learn from the main character. He had to treat Luna properly as an opponent. He chose to concentrate on watching her movements closely.
Luna shortened the distance with every second. As expected from someone who belonged to a famous noble family, it was obvious that her movements were practiced.
At that moment he changed the way he gripped the spear. Even if his attribute hadn’t leveled up, it didn’t mean he was stagnant. His mind had noticed a new stance, so there was a new concept to pursue. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com

If he couldn’t break the opponent’s attack, he could twist the opponent’s attack.
He would show it for the first time in this fight.
