The misunderstanding could escalate if he tried to pursue Luna to clear up this misunderstanding. There were still several cadets around them, though some had left after the fight. And the eyes of these cadets gradually turned to him.
Why the hell… are they looking at me like that?
The cadets looked at him with pity, as if he was a man whose love confession was rejected. He was truly speechless. He was in a dilemma.
He might look like a despicable man if he pursued Luna to tell her she was wrong, but if he did nothing to clarify the situation, he could be misinterpreted as a man who was rejected.
Millia suddenly appeared in his field of vision. She looked as surprised as he was. She just stared at him when she approached. Then he initially came up with a way to make it clear that he didn’t like Luna.
But he soon shook his head sharply after.
It’s a ridiculous thought.
For a moment, he thought about confessing his feelings for Millia to clear up the misunderstanding. But now it seemed crazy.
“Haa.” He couldn’t help but let out a sigh.
I definitely won the fight. But outside the fight…
He felt defeated. And he didn’t know what to do with this strange sensation.
But what I gained is not lost.
He was definitely able to increase his understanding of the concept of skill during the fight against Luna. Although the price was too high, if he could not eventually clear the air.
Footsteps could be heard in the dark corridor of the dormitories. Luna walked accompanied by Millia. There was a deep silence between them.
Some cadets walked past them.
“The dinner menu was really worse than I thought.”
“Yes. The money we get as Class C cadets is too little.”
“Good food is expensive for us. I think it’s 20 silver coins?”
“I will try to ask my family for support.”
The cadets talked happily. Luna was very jealous. She should talk to Millia like they did with each other. But she couldn’t.
Luna gave her a sidelong glance.
It was really awkward watching Millia walk around without saying a word.
Why are we in this situation?
She didn’t understand why the atmosphere had become so heavy.
They used to talk happily about the events of the day. Now, it was as if an invisible wall came between her and Millia. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
“Uh… What?” She immediately replied in surprise.
“You were good in the fight today.”
“I don’t think so… I lost miserably.”
“Your opponent was Han Seong, so your performance was good.”
“Yes. I expected no less from my dear friend.”
She couldn’t help but smile at her friend’s sweet words.
This is Millia’s way.
That was why she was so appreciative to her. She was grateful that she had spoken so kindly to her first.
“I am a little disappointed though. It’s not that I can’t admit that Han Seong is strong, but I wonder if I didn’t try hard enough. I think if my attribute was at Level 3, things would have been different.”
There was a big difference in the levels of their attributes, but that didn’t mean she could blame it on her level. The levels were merely proof that someone had made an effort to evolve his or her attribute.
“No. It’s just that Han Seong is too strong.”
“Okay.” She then accepted Millia’s words. Millia’s eyes looked a little dull, a little pained.
So she remembered the end of the fight again – and why she suddenly said something so strange to Han Seong.
At first she didn’t want Han Seong to approach Millia, but she thought better of it after the end of the fight. She really didn’t know why he approached them with such interest, so her mind jumped to the most obvious conclusion.
However, she wanted to take precautions. She turned him down first to eliminate the possibility that he was interested in her.
Of course, she could sense her best friend’s emotions, and depending on his words Han might have affected Millia’s heart. She wondered if it was right what she did.
A slight smile appeared on her face as she looked at Millia. Millia seemed to be thinking about Han Seong again. Perhaps because they had spent so much time together, she could guess what Millia was thinking.
