I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 4
“It didn’t even look like an ordinary wolf.”
I responded to Enoch’s words.
‘It’s also not killed with a sword.’
Only then did I remember that neither sword, magic nor divine power could be used here.
Still, the male leads had excellent physical abilities and hunted well, so they didn’t seem to be worried about food. Considering Enoch’s strength in defeating the monster earlier, there’s no need to worry about no sword.
“……I don’t know if Lady knows what I’m talking about.”
‘I was complimenting you! Ha! Look at this man.’
Let’s be patient. Let’s be patient. It was said that if you endure three times, you will also avoid murder.
“I don’t know who and why the hell left the two of us here. Why was it me and Young Lady, not anyone else? I doubt that……”
Enoch blurred the end of his words. He seemed to be suspicious of me again.
“If I had planned to kidnap Your Highness, I would have locked you up in a secluded mansion, not in this dangerous wild. ”
I was trying to say that I was harmless, but it sounded as if I had really thought of kidnapping him.
Enoch was speechless. I was taken aback by the awkward silence and added, ” Of course, I never thought of putting it into practice. No, I never thought of it at all.”
The pathetic words got longer. I don’t know if Enoch believed what I said because it was an excuse that was ridiculous even if I thought about it.
I could not hear the answer, so I turned my head and find Enoch lying down, looking up at the sky with a thoughtful expression on his face.
Even his side face is fantastically handsome.
The world is so unfair. I brushed my hair that came down to my chest with my hands.
‘Brilliantly sparkling white blonde……’
In fact, Margaret was also pretty. In terms of appearance alone, she was the most beautiful in the Empire.
But her beautiful appearance was overshadowed by her wicked personality.
Looking into my hair for a long time, I was lost in thought, and asked Enoch, “It seems like there’s really no people here, isn’t it?”
“I don’t know yet, but I believe there will be. Unless this is an island.”
Enoch seemed to hypnotize himself that this was not an island.
But if my memories of the novel are true, this is an island. It is also uninhabited. But I couldn’t tell Enoch about it.
“No matter how I think about it, it is strange.”
I got up and sat down toward Enoch.
“I don’t think we were kidnapped. If someone kidnaps us for a purpose, he can’t just leave us on the beach like this.”
He said nothing, lost in thought.
Enoch seemed to think that this might have been the work of a faction that opposed him.
But I know that on this island are the Crown Prince of the Hestia Kingdom, the Commander of the Imperial Knights, the Saintess, the Archbishop, and even the Archwizard.
‘All the greats of the empire have gathered.’
It didn’t seem like they were just targeting Enoch alone. The strangest thing is that there is only Margaret, a young noblewoman, between them.
I crossed my arms and asked him with a very serious face, “Do you have any guesses? What were you doing before you came here?”
Enoch’s forehead narrowed. He thought for a moment, then shook his head with a sullen face and said, “I was working.”
“In the imperial palace’s office.”
“What about before you work?”
“I was……still working.”
“What were you doing before you started working? You must have eaten and met people.”
At my question, Enoch looked at me, bewildered. It was the first expression I had seen since I met him.
“I didn’t eat. I had a lot of work to do, so I just picked up some fruit in the office.”
“Then, as soon as you woke up in the morning, you haven’t eaten anything and worked all the time in the office, and when you opened your eyes, you were here?”
Enoch did not answer my question. Embarrassed, he avoided my gaze.
“Then what about the day before?”
“I woke up in the morning and had a light meal in the office, and after attending a cabinet meeting, I continued to work in the office.”
That’s a terrible work spirit. It seems to be more than Koreans who are overworked.
Lee Jin-ju, a 27-year-old ordinary office worker, reflects. It seems that you have to work like that to be successful and become a prince.
“Did you not go out? Have you met any outsiders? Have you met a suspicious person recently?”
Enoch frowned as if he didn’t like my blitz of questions.
“I feel like I’m being interrogated.”
“It’s an interrogation.”
Enoch crossed his arms with a displeased face. Then he tilted his head at an angle and looked at me.
“I think it’s Young Lady’s turn for the interrogation.”
“You haven’t answered my question yet.”
He sighed and said in a calm tone, “I’ve never met a suspicious outsider. I don’t remember going out of the imperial palace for nearly a month because it was a busy season for the year-end settlement.”
Enoch who said so had a complicated face.
Well, all office workers are like that.
“What did Young Lady do?”
I searched through Margaret’s memories and bit my lip.
I can’t say that I was alone in my room looking at his portrait. I don’t want to get an unpleasant gaze by confessing the truth.
“I was enjoying tea time in Floné’s mansion. As you can see from my outfit, I was indoors all the time.”
I was wearing flat shoes with an indoor dress.
The neckline of the dress was decorated with colorful beads, and there were many laces on the sleeves and the hem of the dress. In addition, there is a large jewelry decoration on the neckline.
It was by no means an outfit suitable for this wild.
“Among the people I met recently, the suspicious one is…… I don’t know. I meet a lot of people because I am very sociable. It’s hard to tell who was suspicious among all those people.”
In fact, it was the power of the Duke of Floné rather than sociability.
Margaret was not popular because of her picky personality. Enoch seems to have had a similar idea, but he didn’t bother to point that out.
An uncomfortable silence flowed again after what I said.
The sound of waves crashing at regular intervals cut through the silence.
The sun was completely set and darkness came. The moon rising over the eerie black sea was so bright.
Enoch said quietly, “It seems difficult to judge anything hastily yet.”
That’s right. First of all, you will have to go up to a high place tomorrow and figure out where you are first.
“For now, I think I’ll save my stamina and go to sleep. I have to find out where this place is tomorrow.”
Enoch nodded with a face that he agreed with my words.
We soon lay back to each other.
I thought about running away while he was sleeping, but for a moment, I quickly gave up as I remembered the monster I encountered in the afternoon.
First of all, I will go up the mountain with Enoch tomorrow, figure out the situation, and then make a thorough plan and run away.
‘And who knows, maybe it’s my bed when I open my eyes tomorrow morning. Maybe this is just a long dream.’
So I slept with such hopeful expectations. The ominous thoughts shoved into the corner of the heart with great effort.
The first night on the unknown beach passed by.
Unfortunately, all of this was not a dream. I opened my eyes on the beach I fell asleep yesterday.
There was a large difference in temperature between day and night. It was so cold last night that I thought I might die of hypothermia. This is because there was no fire.
There was a saying that you got lucky for one night, but you can’t go on like that all the time. I don’t even have a lighter to make a fire with, but I had to find a way somehow.
I trembled and got up, but something that was covering my shoulder fell.
It was a jacket with colorful gold on the shoulder.
“Looks like you’re awake.”
When I turned my head, Enoch was looking at me with his arms crossed. As if he was watching all night.
