I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 78. Do you like me? (2)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
Luna’s breathing was shaking from the intense pain. She couldn’t understand why.
Why the hell… am I being pushed like this?
Even if Han Seong’s attribute was at Level 4, it didn’t appear to her that he was using that much power in those attacks. It was improbable that his spear could have that much mana. She was sure she had imbued more mana into her kite shield in comparison.
Still, she was being pushed back helplessly.
When she regained her footing, and looked up, she saw the man regain his initial stance. He hadn’t moved a single step. He just stood there. It looked like he would only attack her when she got close.
He suddenly said something she couldn’t understand.
“Yes. I was sure you were going to drop the kite shield.”
She couldn’t help but laugh.
“Did you think your attack would cause this…? Do I look so weak to you?” A furtive laugh escaped him.
“In that case, I wouldn’t have attacked like that.”
“Han Seong, what the hell do you mean?”
“I meant that I didn’t think you were that strong.” Irritation grew. She thought he meant it to tease her.
…Strong? She wondered how she could be considered strong if she couldn’t even close the distance. Her frustration grew. Then she rushed at him again.
She imbued so much mana into her kite shield that it became dazzling.
The mana enveloping her body disappeared. So her speed slowed down.
But she didn’t care.
Because the two of them were fighting head-on. She could repel his attack with the kite shield, or she would be pushed back by the spear. That was it.
The spear wielder’s stance changed even more strangely. Han Seong grabbed the end of the spear as if he was going to throw it.
No way… Would his attack be faster now?
He hadn’t changed the amount of mana in the spear. Only his stance had changed.
She swallowed saliva before entering Han Seong’s attack range.
Will I be able to repel that spear? She didn’t trust that she could react in time if the spear was faster than before. But she had made her decision.
Then, the moment she entered Han Seong’s attack range –
“STOP THE FIGHT!”
The confrontation stopped at Ludmina’s words. The cadets around her, now stunned, had merely watched the fight curiously.
A Level 4 attribute against a Level 2 attribute – A difference so great that the attribute grade didn’t matter. So both the cadets and the instructor checked it out. No one was disappointed. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
“The result of the sparring is a victory for Cadet Han Seong.” No one questioned the result Ludmina decided. Everyone expected this victory. What happened then was strange to the other cadets. The two opponents stared at each other, with hard stares, but said nothing.
“That was close.” Ludmina smiled slightly, sounding relieved. Millia looked at her momentarily dumbfounded.
“Yes. I thought I should intervene, but in the end, Cadet Han Seong controlled his strength on his own.” Millia couldn’t understand how Ludmina spoke so calmly.
Han Seong controlled his strength?!!
To be honest, she could barely see any movement of the spear. She only knew this result for sure out of what she had seen out of the entire match.
When he had been attacked, Luna was pushed back. It looked so sudden, so effortless. It had been a hard battle though. Remnants of blue mana remained in the air. The two still stared at each other, breathing hard, ignoring the looks from the cadets around them.
They are amazing. She thought Luna would lose drastically, but she fought better than she had expected.
It wasn’t just because she was able to block the attacks with her kite shield, but because she used her mana with great precision. It wouldn’t have been strange if it had been another cadet that had been defeated by Han Seong in the first attack, but Luna managed to resist several times.
She walked faster when she saw Luna open her mouth. She had to mediate to prevent Luna from negatively impacting her growing relationship with Han Seong.
When she was closer –
“What the hell? Do you like me?” Millia’s footsteps stopped momentarily.
