I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 87. The Rumor Spread So Fast (1)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Swords4Fun
A refreshing morning.
He smiled as he stretched his limbs.
He didn’t feel any fatigue.
Maybe because he didn’t train yesterday after his fight with Luna.
Suddenly, he saw a coin on the table shining in the morning sun. A sense of satisfaction invaded his heart. He picked up the gold coin.
“This I did not expect.”
He had obtained five months’ maintenance. He had heard that easy money didn’t make people happy, but to him it didn’t make sense. He was very happy.
How could he not feel happy when he received so much money?
“Today I’m going to eat something delicious.”
His first maintenance at the Academy was 20 silver coins. He was barely able to save 10 silver coins outside the Academy, because he had to pay for things like lodging at the inn. So he didn’t dare spend that money recklessly.
If he wanted to reach B class as soon as possible, he needed at least a better spear. But he needed to get more money so he could purchase equipment.
That was why he valued so much that she had given him this gold coin.
“…How much more coins could you give me?”
He remembered what Glesia had told him last night.
—I can give you all the money you want.
—Han Seong, I want to buy your time.
—Please, Han Seong… stay with me. I’ll pay you as much money as you want.
He couldn’t help but smile.
His heart shuddered as he remembered how Glesia begged him.
“…I thought she would confess her love to me.”
She had the readiness to pay for being with him.
It was as if she was clinging to him. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
“But these are not feelings of love.”
If there was affection in Glesia’s eyes, his heart would have fluttered more.
He could only perceive her deep ambition.
She just wanted to advance, even if it overloaded her body.
He felt like an idiot. His heartbeat slowly weakened.
“…I mustn’t think about it anymore.”
He shook his head.
He started to get ready to go to the classroom.
“Geez, aren’t you the popular cadet at this Academy?”
Han Seong, sitting next to Dave, shook his head.
“What do you mean?”
“I heard that you fought against Luna.”
“…That rumor spread so fast?”
“Of course. All the cadets in the classroom know about it.”
He sighed at Dave’s words.
He didn’t think about the repercussions of his fight with Luna, because he had fought Leonhard before. And more important was what happened after the fight.
“Whatever you imagine is untrue.”
“…What do you think I was thinking?”
He could see it in his mischievous smile. Maybe he suspected what had happened between them. And Dave wasn’t the only one who looked at him that way.
The situation might seem funny, but he felt embarrassed because he was involved.
“You really don’t have the slightest interest in Luna?”
“Really? Luna really is beautiful.”
It looked like Dave didn’t believe him, he sighed.
How the hell am I supposed to clear up this misunderstanding?
