They both took a few sips of the drinks in their cups.
Han mind began to wander, and he wondered many things as he looked at Glesia.
How will her Wind element attribute work?
It was unexpected- Glesia’s approach. Honestly, Han was surprised that she said she wanted to talk to him in person, because he thought that she hated him.
He was taken aback for a moment, but responded immediately.
It would be beneficial if he could relate to someone who had a unique attribute and befriend them. There was no reason to refuse his request.
However, for someone who invied him to hang out…
Glesia’s attitude was quite strange.
She didn’t explain as to why she wanted to meet with him at all.
There conversation was very ambiguous, and some may say, even awkward.
Han placed his cup on the table, then opened his mouth.
“I may be wrong, but, I think we both think we’ve passed the exam, right? Yeah, I think so… I wonder what class I’ll be assigned to. I hope all goes well.” Posted only on NovelUtopia
Glesia, who was silent, nodded repeatedly, as if agreeing with his words.
Her blue hair swayed from the small movement of her head. He though,
Does this woman have no etiquette,, or am I just that boring to listen to?
Even though this was the first time him and Glesia had formally met, he felt comfortable since she was the one to propose it.
But why is she acting so strangely?
He didn’t know how he would be able to engage her in a smooth conversation. No matter how hard he tried, Glesia would always just retort short answers.
She had lasted at least 20 minutes or so in this situation.
Judging by the miserable look on Glesia’s face, anyone would think that Han had forcefully brought her here under duress.
“From my perspective, it seems to me that they will assign you to class A. The interest the instructors showed toward you was amazing, Glesia.”
But whenever he talked about the Academy, the only subject they had in common, she always displayed the same reaction.
“I think so, too.”
He couldn’t keep the conversation going any longer like this.
When she took a sip from her cup naturally, he wondered if she really wanted to talk to him.
However, he made an effort to continue the conversation.
“Although I don’t think I’ll be assigned to Class A like you, I hope I can get into Class B.”
The chances of her being in the same class as Glesia were very slim. Actually, perhaps even non-existant.
But still, he would like to be assigned to at least the B class.
There were many benefits of getting into Class B.
Glesia asked with a cocked head. He replied with an awkward smile.
“Hahaha. Glesia, do you think they can’t assign me to class B?”
“Yes.” she retorted
He was disappointed to hear her blatantly say “Yes”.
The fact that Glesia was sure that they should assign him to a lower class caused his heart to harden a little, but he didn’t reflect it on his face.
On the contrary, he spoke with a smile.
“Well… I mean… class C isn’t the worst either. If I work hard, I can move up to a higher class.”
Glesia, who was looking at him blankly, finally nodded. He continued speaking.
“Well, there should hardly be many people with a level 3 attribute in class C.”
“I suppose so,” said Glesia.
He wanted to ask her if she was just saying that as a consolation, but he swallowed his words.
He had to control himself.
There would definitely be people with better attributes than him scattered all over the Academy.
There were so many attribute grades- common, rare, unique… Also, there was the legendary grade, Leonhard, the main character of the novel…
In other words, Glesia’s attitude was not particularly questionable.
This was because, in this world, people with high attributes tend to look down on those with attributes of grades lower than their own.
Even at the Great Royal Academy, the slogan was:
—The grade of your attribute indicates your status within the Academy.
In a world where the grade of an attribute is the only thing that determines your life, having a high grade attribute meant more social status.
From the moment someone becomes an adult, the world decides.
—That’s what you’re worth.
Leonhard, the main character, had a good heart. He did not discriminate against people because they had attributes of lower grades.
Glesia at this moment was the standard- or possibly, even below the standard- of most of the students he would deal with in the future at the Academy.
Even now she looked at him with no intention of disguising that she felt she was above him.
He was having a hard time dealing with Glesia’s coldness.
“Han Seong.” Gelsia spoke codly.
When Glesia suddenly called out to him, Han immediately replied with a smile.
“I’m a little curious… why are you trying to enter the Academy?”
