I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 79. I Don’t Like You (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
In this world, attributes practically represented a person’s worth. He knew this. He knew how irrational this world could be with their fanatical devotion to attributes after carefully reading the novel. But he was also hopeful that if he worked hard enough, he could overcome the limitations of his attribute. And now he had discovered something truly amazing.
It’s not just the attribute, it’s pure individual power.
Although he initially thought that the grade of an attribute wasn’t everything, and still believed it to some degree, he never imagined that the level of an attribute was so important. There were gaps that could not be reduced despite the grade of an attribute.
He could feel the surprise in Luna’s eyes now that they were face to face. He was surprised too, but in a different way.
When he looked down at the floor a short distance away from her, he saw a kite shield that was completely shattered. The spear had impacted the shield with immense power. He was able to turn the spear with a large amount of mana. But he still couldn’t achieve the certain skill that he was currently working on. Despite his progress in this fight, he was not clear on the concept itself.
[Turning when stabbing at a point] He understood the concept more clearly than before, but not completely. Skills had the ability to be unlocked, but that didn’t mean he had clear direction for where to proceed to upgrade that skill.
Anyway, he felt good. He got more hints on how to unlock the skill in the fight with Luna.
“STOP THE FIGHT!!”
Immediately, the tip of his spear pointed to the floor. At the same time, he thought about Luna again.
Luna’s potential is ridiculous.
She had practically not used her attribute in this fight. She was so focused on blocking his spear with her comet shield that she did not apply the ‘damage compensation’ effect of her Battle Healing attribute.
However, contrary to his expectations, she had shown a completely different skill. She completely blocked his spear with her power.
Is this the power of a high-ranking noblewoman? Vermont County, a family famous in the novel for their great prestige, had power beyond their title. In the future, this family would fully support Leonhard.
“The result of the sparring is a victory for Cadet Han Seong.” He laughed unintentionally when the instructor announced the result.
Attributes are not everything.
Before she had been granted the attribute, Luna had developed the ability to use mana and manipulate it at a young age. That’s why she could take advantage of mana even though she was at Level 2.
In addition, she was trained to handle various weapons such as shields. She had all the normal training that a typical elite cadet who came from a prestigious family would have. A cadet who had been trained with a family education from an early age, instead of doing so upon receiving the attribute.
Luna looked at him dumbfounded, as if she didn’t understand the situation. She probably wondered how he had been able to get the kite shield out of her hands.
But he didn’t know for certain either. There was only one thing he was sure of.
I should definitely become friends with Luna. The attribute she would develop was powerful, but she also had great martial talent. It was understandable because she was a main heroine, and for that reason he had to remain in close proximity to her.
He smiled slightly when Luna’s mouth finally opened.He did not intend to brag in the least about his victory in this fight. Honestly, he thought to tease her a bit before the fight, but now he clearly recognized her abilities. Teasing her would not make sense for his plans.
But her next words left him speechless.
“What the hell? Do you like me?”
He blinked like an idiot for a moment. He thought he’d misheard.
Why does she suddenly say that?
He didn’t understand how she came to that conclusion. Nor why she was looking at him with such a strange expression.
When he called her name carefully, Luna bit her lip. His whole demeanor seemed strange to her. It seemed like she really believed what she had said.
“Han Seong. Please, if you really like me… I hope you’ll give up this idea soon.”
She spoke with regret. Han was floored. He didn’t understand how she had misunderstood that. It didn’t make any sense. He opened his mouth quickly.
“I don’t understand what you’re saying. Why the hell do you think I like you?” Even though she was beautiful, she was not his ideal type of woman. He preferred someone like Millia. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
“I really don’t have any similar feelings for you. Please, I don’t want there to be any unnecessary misunderstandings. I don’t understand why you would suddenly say things like that.”
“I’m sorry.” Luna turned around after saying those strange words. Should he stop Luna? No, he couldn’t.
It might seem like harassment…
Which would be the worse for him.
