I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 47
“That is probably one of the possible causes. But there are a lot of other things that I can guess, so it is difficult to infer,” Enoch answered with a calm face.
In the end, we are back to square one again. Ruzef, who was watching the conversation, raised his hand.
“Then it would be best if we all work together to find the escape gate.”
Everyone nodded in agreement with Ruzef.
Suddenly, it was getting darker. More time has passed than I thought.
Everyone showed signs of exhaustion.
“In addition, it would be a good idea to go out to the beach periodically to see if there are any ships passing by,” Arthdal added.
That is the opinion I would most like to avoid, knowing that rescue calls are useless. But the other people who didn’t know nodded in agreement.
Then a wolf howl was heard from far away.
There was a long silence. Everyone looked at each other’s faces with great tension and looked around.
“Let’s talk about the details after the sun rises. We’d better wrap up for today.”
Everyone nodded in agreement at Yuanna’s words.
Even if the monsters don’t come up near the cabin, it’s dangerous to light a fire at night.
Eventually, everyone quickly entered the cabin.
We decided to take turns keeping the watch.
Here, ‘we’ refers to me, Enoch, Kayden, and Ruzef.
The reason we stood vigilantly was to prepare for the attack of the monsters, but it was more to prevent the provocation of Yuanna and her party.
I was preparing well by laying fallen leaves on the wooden floor on the first floor of the cabin. Kayden, who was walking down the stairs, looked at me and pointed upwards.
“I heard that one of the two rooms on the second floor is used by the Saintess?”
At Kayden’s words, Ruzef, who helped me spread the leaves, sighed.
“The Crown Prince said he would use the other one.”
At his words, Kayden approached this way and frowned.
“What, then, what about our Margaret?”
Diego and Enoch, who were having a conversation from afar, looked at us with puzzled faces.
I don’t want to make a fuss at night, and first of all, the second floor has nothing but hard wooden beds.
I calmed Kayden down.
“Nevermind. I think it’s safe to sleep here. There’s you, Enoch, and also the Archbishop.”
Kayden’s eyebrows rose and a smile spread across his lips. I guess my words weren’t too bad.
I don’t know if Diego and Enoch heard our conversation. They soon turned their heads again and looked busy discussing something.
I spread all the fallen leaves and sat on them and looked at the two. What kind of conversation are they having?
“I think they are sharing information about monsters,” said Kayden, who sat next to me with his chin on the back of his hand and followed my gaze towards Enoch.
“Information about monsters?”
“It looks like the two of them made a deal.”
Archbishop Ruzef, who was sitting in front of the bonfire also looked at Kayden with curiosity.
Kayden narrowed his eyes and listened to Enoch and Diego’s conversation.
They were whispering, at least ten steps away, but how did Kayden hear that? Is he Sommers?
 Jaimi Sommers is the main character of The Bionic Woman series, which tells the story of turning a group of people dying in an accident into robots and demonstrating superhuman powers. Therefore, they also have super hearing. In South Korea, the word ‘Sommers’ is often interpreted as people who have good hearing.
“It seems that Diego is reporting to the Crown Prince what he found out while staying with the people over there.”
Kayden clicked his tongue at the end of his words.
“Yeah, I forgot about it for a while. Diego is Prince Enoch’s subordinate.”
I answered with a sigh.
‘I have to get my revenge on that punk……’
How should I take revenge?
Kayden snorted and crossed his arms, glanced intently at Diego.
“A knight who is not faithful to his duty. From what I see, I think he’s really into the Saintess. He said he would not follow the Prince and would be by the side of the Saintess. Isn’t that bastard crazy? What will he do when he returns to the Empire?”
I sighed and shook my head, then lay down.
Kayden grumbled for a moment and then lay down to my left.
As Ruzef, who was watching the situation carefully, was about to lie down on my right side, Enoch appeared.
“Get out of the way, Archbishop. This is my place.”
At Enoch’s harsh voice, Ruzef frowned in annoyance. However, he ended up going to the other side with a sigh.
I turned around and looked up at Enoch. He unbuttoned his shirt sleeves and looked down at me.
Wow, even when I look at him from below like this, he’s handsome without flaws.
He slowly sat down next to me and looked down at me.
“You must have something to say to me.”
I sat up and looked at him.
“What did you talk about with Sir Diego?”
At my question, Kayden, who was lying down, turned around.
Enoch sighed, rolled up the sleeves of his shirt, and shrugged.
“We exchanged information about the monsters we had encountered.”
It was as Kayden said.
“Weren’t the monsters that attacked us mainly wolves and anacondas? But the monsters he encountered were different.”
At Enoch’s words, Kayden sat up with a curious look. Ruzef also came close to Enoch and listened to him.
Diego, who was far away, seemed to be able to hear our conversation, but this kind of conversation wasn’t a secret, so there was no problem even if someone else overheard it.
Enoch didn’t seem to care either.
“Diego said that he encountered a giant tarantula-type monster and a beast-type monster in the shape of a human being.”
A beast-type monster in human form……
I suddenly remembered the monster I ran into a few weeks ago while being chased by Kayden. A beast that stood on two legs like a human and was covered in fur.
“Rather than human form…… I once ran into a monster that was more like a giant orangutan when I was being chased by Kayden. It’s similar to the beast-type monster Sir Diego described.”
Kayden hit his knee and agreed with me.
“Oh, I know it. I was also attacked. This is what the monster did.”
He rolled up his shirt to show the scar on his chest.
As he said, the place where he had been attacked left a deep scar despite being treated by me. He can’t even use magic, so it’s probably difficult to remove the scar.
After a brief silence, Enoch added,
“……it seems the monster is evolving.”
I agreed with that.
The wolf-type monsters that Enoch tore apart last time were clearly evolving.
「 It’s already been four days since I entered the underground warehouse alone.
I still couldn’t understand what happened right before I entered the warehouse.
Just before entering the warehouse, I ran into a monster. I managed to escape, but what surprised me more than the monster’s appearance was the time it appeared.
The sun was starting to set, but it was clearly still a bright day.
But the gigantic tarantula I encountered just before entering the warehouse did not appear to be affected by the sun.
They evolved. 」
It’s not accurate, but there are definitely sentences like that.
In the novel, it is said that the phenomenon began near the end of the first volume. Even before Yuanna entered the bunker.
But as soon as we woke up on this island, we witnessed the phenomenon. On the first day I woke up on this island, Enoch and I ran into a monster during sunset time.
When I suddenly realized that, I got goosebumps.
What if monsters appeared even in broad daylight after this?
“We need more weapons.”
Kayden narrowed his eyes and muttered with a serious face. As his gaze focused on me, he shrugged and said,
“If the monsters really evolve, there will be no limit to how they can fight us.”
That’s right. What we have now is not enough. The number of flares and grenades I have is also limited.
“We have to find the ‘door’ that fits the key or we won’t be able to handle the evolved monsters.”
As soon as Enoch finished speaking, we looked at the second floor at the same time, as if we had the same thought.
Yuanna sleeps with the key up there.
“We must unravel the secret of the key,” I said.
“The secret of the island.”
Archbishop Ruzef responded to my words as he nodded.
What the heck is this strange island? It feels like only unsolved mysteries are piling up.
