I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 51
There was an awkward silence for a moment at Yuanna’s words. I pondered over Yuanna’s question for a moment.
“This is not about taking your side, Saintess, but the problem is that the Knight Commander, who is obligated to protect the Crown Prince, has failed to fulfill his duty.”
After hearing my words, Yuanna understood the situation and nodded her head.
But she still had a bad attitude, crossed her arms, and stared at Enoch. Then she said something weird.
“Still, Sir Diego is mine. Please do not be reckless.”
“Before Sir Diego was your man, he was the Knight Commander of the Langridge Empire.”
“But this is not the Langridge Empire.”
Neither side is willing to budge. It was a fierce battle.
“It is a very pleasant meeting, isn’t it?”
At that time, watching our meeting from afar, Arthdal spoke out.
He approached this way leisurely. Even his steps were arrogant.
“Don’t forget the gist. Let’s just talk about the point. Saintess, you shouldn’t interrupt the meeting by focusing on other things like that.”
Despite Arthdal’s point, Yuanna still smiled without blinking her eyes. As if nothing were going on.
Then she looked back at Enoch as if she remembered something.
“Oh, maybe…… maybe there was an escape gate near where I woke up?”
“Hmm. It’s possible.”
Kayden nodded his head as if Yuanna’s words had a point.
It was a reasonable guess, but we all didn’t think about it because we were focused on other things for a while.
“Is the place you woke up far from here?”
At Enoch’s question, Yuanna shook her head.
“That’s not too far away. I mostly moved during the day because it was too dangerous at night. I think it took about two full days to get there.”
“I have an idea.”
Kayden continued, “How about setting up a reconnaissance team and going there?”
Enoch nodded, agreeing with Kayden’s suggestion.
“I will go with Diego and the Saintess.”
Wait, I couldn’t let them leave alone. When it comes to the secret of the key, I had to check it with my own eyes.
“I will go too.”
As I raised my hand, Kayden frowned and said, “Then I will go too.”
When everyone said they were leaving, Ruzef looked at Arthdal and hurriedly raised his hand.
“Then I will go too.”
It was clear that he didn’t want to be left alone with Arthdal.
Enoch sighed with a tired face as he rubbed his forehead in annoyance.
“We can’t all go together. Then Saintess, Margaret, and I will go together. The rest will have to stay in the cabin.”
“The division of the group is weird. Sir Diego must go to help you. On the other hand, what can Lady Floné do?”
The Cheekydal is starting again. Sooner or later, I’ll have to call him separately behind the cabin and show him the bitterness of life.
“No one can match Margaret in judging and responding to emergencies.”
Enoch looked back at me. Then people’s eyes naturally focused on me. I shrugged my shoulders because their gazes felt a little burdensome.
Enoch continued, “And when it comes to swords, I also have as much skill as Sir Diego. So, I think this team is suitable for reconnaissance, does anyone have any objections?”
Arthdal looked at me with a confused face.
In fact, he was like that all the time I met him. Eyes that don’t trust me. There were also suspicious glances.
However, when everyone seemed to have no disagreement with Enoch’s argument, Arthdal raised both hands as if he didn’t care anymore.
Thus, a new reconnaissance team was formed and we decided to thoroughly prepare and depart in four days.
After the meeting, we had a busy afternoon doing our own things.
I was trimming the fine bones left after hunting prey using a stone knife to make needles.
“What are you doing? Where did you get that?”
Kayden, who had come into the cabin from a walk, approached me sitting in front of the fireplace.
“At the last base camp, I collected some leftovers from the hunting. Just in case.”
“What are you going to do?”
“I want to try making needles. I only have one piece of clothing, and it will be a problem if it rips.”
“As expected from the Island King. You’re the best.”
“Stop saying that.”
While I was chatting with Kayden for a while. Yuanna came down excitedly from the second floor.
“Young Lady Floné! Young Lady, look at this, look at this.”
She stretched out her palm to me. On her palm were two solid square pieces.
“Huh? This can’t be……”
“I think it’s soap!”
When Yuanna shouted with excitement, Diego and Ruzef, who were drinking water in the kitchen, also came over.
Kayden picked up the solid mass on Yuanna’s palm and sniffed it.
“It smells great. It smells like flowers.”
He held out the soap right in front of my nose, so I sniffed the scent. It really smells like flowers.
“Where did you get this?”
At my question, Yuanna pointed her finger to the second floor.
“It was stuck in the crevice of the window in my room.”
At the same time, Enoch and Arthdal also entered the cabin. They saw us gathered in the middle of the living room of the cabin, and approached us.
“What’s going on everyone?”
At Arthdal’s question, Yuanna showed the soap on her palm to him.
“I found soap. On the second floor.”
As Arthdal took the soap from Yuanna and smelled the scent, his eyes widened.
“I need to wash up now.”
Enoch grabbed his wrist quickly as he was about to leave.
“Isn’t it something the Saintess found? You have to ask permission.”
Enoch probably has the perception that the first person to find anything is the owner of it. It’s in the same context as not coveting the flare gun and flame bombs I found. Maybe this is our own norm that we have developed while living on this island.
“Sheesh, that’s too bad. Hey, let go of me Banhwang. My wrist bone is going to break.”
When Arthdal raised his hand that was held by Enoch, Enoch finally let go of his hand.
I was surprised for a moment to see a blue bruise on Arthdal’s wrist. Enoch only grabbed it though. As expected, Enoch’s physical strength is great.
“I think it would be better to use this all together. Should we use this in turn? First of all, I really want to wash up,” Yuanna said with a smile.
“Well. How about setting the amount to use?”
In response to my question, Yuanna tilted her head, asking if it was necessary.
“Why do we have to be frugal in using soap?”
“Still, it would be best if we could use it for a long time.”
“After all, we don’t know if we’ll escape tomorrow or when we’ll die.”
Oh right. I am the only one who knows there is a way out of this island. I can’t tell anyone this, and it’s ambiguous for me to argue with the soap that Yuanna found in the first place.
“Well, the decision is yours, Saintess.”
At my answer, Yuanna looked back at Arthdal and Diego with a bright face.
“Did you hear that Young Lady told me to do what I want? See, Young Lady admitted it too. Now I’m the leader!”
I don’t know in what context the conclusion was drawn. Those who were watching were also dumbfounded.
Ruzef said, “It’s clear that Young Lady Floné is the leader.”
“Wait. I have an objection. I’m not a responsible person enough to take on such a troublesome role.”
Why do you keep bringing me up?
Yuanna smiled broadly and said, “See, then I am the leader.”
“Have you forgotten that the Crown Prince of the Langridge Empire and the Crown Prince of Hestia Kingdom are here?”
Arthdal, who had been still, asked Yuanna in frustration.
Well, it seems there’s no point in talking about identity here.
Yuanna stared at Arthdal.
She didn’t say anything, but Arthdal eventually avoided her gaze first.
I wonder what the hell happened between them.
