I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 83. Strange Words (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
It took him a while to calm his mind after Luna’s unwelcome confession. After that, Han stumbled into Glesia shortly after leaving the lunch room. And now, he was in a stranger situation.
“Please, Han Seong… stay with me. I’ll pay you as much money as you want.” His mind went blank. Her own words were strange to him.
Does she mean, buy me with money…?
Although he was pleased with the proposal, it was too sudden to accept. Again, he felt that Glesia’s way of speaking could cause problems. If anyone had heard her words, they would have entirely misunderstood the situation. Thank the gods this was in a different world.
Still, Han looked around before answering.
And saw Leonhard, who was accompanied by Yumia. They were watching them from a distance, looking stunned. They seemed to have heard what Glesia had said. He couldn’t help but shake his head. Whatever they thought would be a misunderstanding.
“Glesia, it’s better if you take more time to think about what you’re saying. It’s not a matter of money. We have to go back to our dormitories. It’s very late today. I’ll try to plan time for us for tomorrow after class…”
“No! Han Seong. I beg you, stay with me. Even if it’s just for a little while.”
Glesia moved close enough where he was sure she would feel his breath. Did his breath smell weird at all? He blinked in a daze as she suddenly grabbed his arm.
Where was the calm Glesia?
She had a very different attitude. He could notice the seriousness in her eyes. He couldn’t say no to her pleading eyes.
I really don’t know what’s going on…
There had to be a reason for Glesia to do this. But he couldn’t continue the conversation here under the gaze of the others in case Glesia might drop more bombshells, so first the location had to be changed.
“I understand… but can we go somewhere else?”
Glesia nodded slightly. So he started walking, with her at his side.
When Han Seong left with Glesia, Leonhard stared at their backs.
“Geez… How can she talk so directly if they don’t have a relationship? I’m shocked – I didn’t think she had such a bold side. She actually offered money to him. She practically wanted to buy Han Seong with money.”
Yumia said with a smile. Leonhard nodded awkwardly.
…Please. Han Seong.
…Stay with me.
…I’ll pay you as much money as you want. He vividly remembered Glesia’s every word. Now he had to recognize who she held dear in her heart.
“It’s a little disappointing.”
Those words escaped his mouth. He had already guessed it in the fight against Han Seong. Glesia had approached Han Seong as soon as the fight was over. He wanted to ignore the truth until now. He even tried to show more interest in Glesia. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
“Leonhard. What’s disappointing you?” Yumia elbowed him in the ribs.
“…Nothing.” But he had his attention on the two people walking away together. There were lingering feelings in his heart. He thought he had finally met someone special. However, he now knew better than anyone that he was not in Glesia’s heart.
It seems I won’t be able to connect with her after all.
He could not deny that he had fallen in love with Glesia. She had a mysterious atmosphere. But now, with this revelation, he considered that he should not try to get close to her. His unrequited emotions would only cause discomfort in her, and that was the last thing he wanted..
“Nothing? Tell me the truth.” Yumia looked at him simultaneously demanding and questioning. He slowly opened his mouth.
“Honestly, I wish Glesia would show us her side emotions like now.”
His words were sincere. Even if she didn’t reciprocate his feelings, he would like her to at least get along with others. That was why he had initially – and continued – to dare to talk to her.
“Is that… really all you want?” Yumia asked a little insistently. He looked calmly back into her eyes.
“How do I look in your eyes?”
“In my eyes…?”
“Respond freely. I think you might have a different perspective of me.” There is great subjective value in other people’s opinions. Leonhard thought that if Yumia had a good opinion of him, others would probably have a good opinion of him. But only her words could clarify – or dispel it completely.
