I Became An Academy Spearman — Chapter 93. The Truth About Rumors (1)
Weekly Chapter (5/5)
Carly looked stunned.
Actually, there was no need for her to look for a magical engineering item.
“We didn’t come to the training camp to train, right?”
“Oh…I was distracted. Sorry.”
Carly laughed nervously, as if embarrassed. Her behavior was strange.
He wanted to clear up the misunderstanding right away.
He opened his mouth when she approached.
“First, the rumors are false.”
He had to reveal the truth before anything else.
“It’s all lies. I don’t like Luna, I didn’t confess to her that I was in love either.”
“Then it’s false..”
“Yes. Maybe there was a misunderstanding yesterday while I was interacting with her, because suddenly Luna thought I liked her.”
He was relieved because she seemed so surprised she couldn’t speak.
He thought that even though the rumors spread, they would die down after a few days, so he didn’t worry. But he had to clarify the truth to Carly.
Of course, it would have been best to disclose the truth openly in front of the other cadets. But it didn’t seem like the right time.
That was why rumors were so frightening. People believed rumors even if they weren’t true. And sometimes it was pointless trying to clear them up.
It doesn’t make sense for me to feel aggrieved.
He realized Luna was watching him during class today. Her eyes showed that she regretted what she had done, so he had to take advantage. Advanced chapters on NovelUtopia.com
Rumors cannot be controlled once they are spread, nor can spilled water be picked up. But he could make her feel she owed him.
I can get Luna’s good treatment.
She couldn’t ignore him after what she had done.
He intended to use it as a pretext to tie Luna to him.
“I guess what you’re saying is true.”
Carly was genuinely confused.
“It all started with a misunderstanding, you’re not to blame. Of course, I didn’t expect the Instructor to tell me all that in the classroom.”
“I’m so sorry! What should I do? I really… I did something stupid.”
“I would like you to listen to my request.”
“A request? I want to compensate you, I will accept it if it’s not unreasonable.”
Carly suddenly seemed adorable.
…She’s five years older than me.
An hour ago she had been very cold in the classroom, but now she was eager to make up for it. It was such a change that he couldn’t believe she was the same person.
He spoke cautiously.
“I want twice weekly access to your private training camp.”
His request was firm.
He wanted to take advantage of the opportunity created by Luna’s misunderstanding to request access to this training camp.
“My private training camp…”
Carly didn’t immediately respond.
Her gaze shifted to the various magical engineering items inside.
Magical engineering items could not be purchased no matter how much money someone has. Magical engineering items are treated as treasures.
It is impossible to control rumors, nor pick up the spilled water. But he could make her feel she owed him.
Even a Pillar of the Empire like Carly only borrowed them.
It would not be easy to allow a cadet access to a space with such treasures.
However, he needed this space. Perhaps he could advance at the same pace as the other cadets if he could use the magical engineering items.
He might even be able to advance faster.
Finally Carly nodded slowly.
“Thank you so much.”
He said very excited.
“You don’t have to be so grateful…I just want to make up for my mistake.”
“I couldn’t forget this space since I trained here. I wanted to come back somehow.”
He had a smile that reflected his true feelings.
He turned a bad situation into a blessing.
Today he even worried that his relationship with Carly would end. But not only did he restore their relationship, he got the permission he wanted.
“Cadet Han Seong wants to enter this training camp to use the magical engineering items… right?”
“Yes. Last time it was really helpful to have used Elimian’s Compassion.”
“I thought so…”
Carly muttered with a slight smile.
Did she anticipate that he would request access to her personal training camp?
