I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 8. Entrance Exam to the Great Royal Academy (6)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Fafa
As Han walked out of the examination hall some distance away from Glesia, he saw many people.
“What am I going to do? It’s all over,” someone said.
“Damn it! I could have done so much better.”
It seemed as though the candidates who had already come out of the examination hall had already anticipated the results of their exam. They were filled with disappointment.
He couldn’t help but click his tongue as he watched.
A level 3 attribute might seem amazing in some ways, but he thought it was a level that anyone could achieve with decent effort over the course of two months.
No matter how low the attribute grade was.
If they were going to regret it like this, they should have trained to death.
Even if they hadn’t all passed, half of them might have succeeded.
Even ifit was obvious not all of them would have passed, probably at least half would have succeeded.
Actually… maybe Han had tried so hard because he knew everything that was going to happen to him in the novel if he didn’t try hard enough. Posted only on NovelUtopia
Anyway, he kept walking.
In the days to come, when he eventually comes back to the Great Royal Academy, there would be a big sign that lists who passed the entrance exam.
On the pass list, he would also find out what class he would be assigned to at the academy.
Until then, though, he planned to take a short break.
“Wait a minute.”
Suddenly, someone grabbed him by the arm, causing Han to stop abruptly in his tracks.
The person who grabbed him was someone he recognized.
It was the woman who had come out before him.
She was looking at him with a complex expression, unlike her previous cold expression.
“Wait a minute.”
She grabbed the arm of the man walking past her to stop him.
There was something Glesia couldn’t understand.
She had witnessed this man- Han Seong’s- entrance exam.
She had assumed that he would pass the exam because he had a level 3 attribute.
However, she anticipated Han to receive cold treatment from the instructors. Surprisingly, contradicting her expectations, one of the instructors- Carly- seemed to recognize him.
Moreover, the man was able to maintain the “confidence” he stated.
In the examination hall, he showed no signs of subservience or intimidation, but rather he finished the entrance exam with a confidence that was completely different from other candidates.
And even after finishing the exam, he stayed to look at Glesia as if he was evaluating her. That look struck her as quite unusual.
He is not like the others.
He has an insignificant attribute, but his actions felt extraordinary.
That gap made it even more impossible for her to understand this man.
“Huh?” Han asked in surprise.
Her eyes narrowed at the man’s brief reply.
Then she opened her mouth to speak her mind.
“…I’d like to have a little conversation with you.”
“Yes. Because you seem to have passed the entrance exam as well. I want to have a conversation as approved candidates from the same group.”
She wanted to decipher the motive behind his attitude, so she needed to understand him.
The man smiled broadly at her request.
It was a crooked, awkward smile. It made sense to her.
She gave him a dirty look at the training camp.
When they crossed glances today there, she averted her gaze coldly.
It wouldn’t be strange if he had a bad impression of her.
When the man stared at her without responding, she became shy as she continued to hold his arm for no reason.
She thought she would be rejected by a man with such an insignificant attribute.
“I appreciate you suggesting it. I too would like to have a conversation with you.”
When the man spoke with such intensity, she was taken aback.
Suddenly, she felt something grasp her hand tightly.
“Let’s go to a coffee shop for a quiet conversation. My treat.”
She blinked as she was being dragged away by the man leading her.
What the hell is wrong with this man…?
Her icy cold stare should have been unpleasant to this man as well.
However, now he had taken her hand as if it was nothing. She didn’t know what to do, she simply kept walking behind this man.
“But let go of my hand…”
She considered it a shameful thing for them to walk holding hands. When she wanted to release her hand, she was able to do so easily.
“What? You grabbed my arm first, so I thought the hand was better.” Han replied innocently
“…That was… it was an accident.”
“Really? I see.”
She was puzzled because the man continued to walk nonchalantly.
He was a strange man…hard to predict.
He has an insignificant common grade attribute…
How could he treat her like that when he knew she had a unique grade attribute?
She couldn’t even understand his current behavior.
“This coffee shop has a good atmosphere, plus the prices are reasonable.”
The man handed her a cup with a slight smile. She accepted it awkwardly.
“Sure looks like it… thanks.”
But now that she was with him, she didn’t even know what to say.
“First of all, my name is Han Seong.”
She looked up at the sound of his voice. He was staring at her.
“I think you should say yours too.”
“Glesia… That’s a pretty name.”
She felt strange looking at the man who was smiling brightly.
