I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 107
Strangely, after meeting Kayden, the fog slowly began to clear as if it had done its job.
“Are you hurt? Where does it hurt? Did you encounter a monster?”
At my question, Kayden raised his head and smiled at me.
“It’s good to see Margaret worry so passionately.”
He didn’t answer and instead spoke nonsense. I just stared at him without asking further. Enoch, who was just watching with his arms crossed, opened his mouth.
“I was worried because the fog was quite thick. Are you really okay, Lord?”
Kayden then turned to Enoch and scratched the back of his head with a complex expression.
“Shall we sit and talk?”
We sat together to chat and avoid the monsters’ eyes. First of all, we’ll manage the situation first and then go find a safer place.
“First, tell me about you, Kayden. What happened? I met Enoch not long after the fog came. Have you been alone in the fog all day?”
At my words, Kayden looked at me and Enoch with a puzzled face.
“A day has passed? I didn’t even know how much time had passed.”
He shook his head with a weary face and closed his eyes tightly.
He wrinkled his nose as if recalling his memories for a while, and then calmly explained to us what had happened for the day.
“I kept following the cabin the whole time. But at some point, it disappeared from sight. However, the cabin gave off a very strange aura, and even though I couldn’t see it, I could roughly tell which way to move.”
He sensed a strange aura from the cabin?
It seems to be in a similar context to how Arthdal can sense the flow of mana. That’s not too surprising because Kayden has excellent senses and is highly intuitive.
The strange energy he felt might be the energy of Jenas.
“—So I tried to keep going in that direction, but the fog kept blocking my view. It was as if someone was trying to prevent me from finding the cabin.”
I remembered what Jenas had said as he pushed me out of the cabin; an uninvited guest had come.
“I definitely felt like someone was interrupting me so I couldn’t come. When I came to my senses, I was in front of the cabin.
When I came to my senses, I found myself in front of the cabin. I thought you’d be there in the cabin.”
The story went on and on. From the story of the silver-haired woman he met in the sanctuary chamber to the silver-haired boy he met after being dragged out of the cabin.
I was so surprised that I was at a loss for words.
The sanctuary chamber was obviously locked. But Kayden said he opened the door. Besides, there was really someone in it.
Kayden sighed. “It didn’t feel that long, but I’m surprised that a day has already passed.”
He looked a bit dazed. It was very unusual for him to react like this. I looked at him quietly and opened my mouth.
“……maybe it was good that someone prevented you from finding the cabin.”
Kayden looked at me with a puzzled face. Enoch, who was still listening to the conversation with his arms folded, also looked at me.
I was going to tell them about Jenas when I reunited with Kayden, so now is the right time.
“I also spent the night in that cabin with a wizard over a thousand years old. I think the little boy you met is the wizard I was with.”
“A wizard over a thousand years old? What are you talking about?”
Kayden opened his eyes wide in disbelief. Yeah, I can’t believe it either.
“You may not believe it, but it is true. And his name is Jenas Igran.”
“Wait, what? Jenas Igran?!”
Kayden was more surprised than before and jumped up from his seat. I was startled at the same time, and when I leaned back, Enoch reached out and placed a hand on my back to support me.
“What’s wrong, Lord?” Enoch asked, frowning.
Kayden covered his mouth and was silent for a long time with a thoughtful face, then he suddenly pulled something out of his pocket.
In his hand is a pendant passed down from generation to generation to the owners of Magic Tower—the pendant that hit my cheekbone the first time I met him.
I looked at him with a puzzled face.
“The owner of this pendant was a wizard named Jenas Igran.”
“……he is the ancestor of my family. Jenas Igran Rohade, an archwizard and the first head of the Marquis Rohade. Damn, that’s why I felt like I’d seen him somewhere.”
I screamed in surprise at Kayden’s shocking statements one after another.
Only then did I realize why Jenas has silver hair and red eyes. It seems to have been the inheritance of the Rohade family.
“Jenas is a wizard who died a thousand years ago. How can he be here?” This time, Kayden asked me back.
I shrugged. “I don’t know. By the way, he told me that he lived on this island for a thousand years and that he couldn’t escape. I don’t know if I can believe what he said.”
“He was stuck here? That genius wizard?” asked Kayden.
I nodded and told them what I had been through in the cabin.
Someone pulled me out of the river, and then I met Jenas, and he brought me to the cabin to treat me, and then I even found a strange ‘door’ and ‘sanctuary chamber’ in Jenas’ cabin.
Now that I remember, when I first met Jenas, he was holding some coconuts. But didn’t he say he can live without eating?
At that time, Kayden, who was deep in thought, spoke to me.
“But the Jenas you’re talking about seems quite different from the Jenas I’ve heard about in my family.”
“What kind of person is the Jenas you know?”
“First of all, Jenas is not like a child. I heard he’s a grown man and a maniac who enjoys murder. There is also a document that says he may have been a devil because of his severe lack of human emotion.”
Certainly, the Jenas Kayden was talking about is very different from the Jenas I met.
“Is there any possibility that he is another person with the same name?”
When Enoch asked Kayden, Kayden shook his head resolutely.
“You said he is from the Ingram Dynasty, and he is a wizard who changed his body’s constitution so that he can live without eating. At that time, Jenas was the only wizard capable of implementing such high-level magic.”
Enoch asked again in a calm voice. “Then the fog around the cabin was created by that wizard? But you can’t use magic on this island.”
At Enoch’s words, I pondered over what Jenas had told me.
“Isn’t it possible to change your body? If Kayden is right, he originally has the body of an adult, and he might be able to use mana while in his adult body. He said something like, “I can’t use mana with this body.”
“Then why is he pretending to be a child? Is it to protect his original body? But if he can’t use mana in that body, how did he make things like fog?”
Kayden muttered and was lost in thought with a confused face.
“Kayden, why was the door open in the sanctuary chamber you said you entered? I couldn’t get in because the door was locked. And on the door, it clearly says ‘sealed’.”
“I don’t know why the door was opened, but it seemed right that the place was sealed. There was a woman tied in the middle of a magic circle.”
“Was that also the work of that wizard named Jenas?” asked Enoch.
In response to Enoch’s question, Kayden rubbed his temples and narrowed his brows.
“I don’t know. As soon as the woman told me to run away, I was thrown out of the cabin. As soon as that woman told me to run away, I was thrown out of the cabin. I met a short silver-haired boy right after. From what Margaret said, that little boy was Jenas.”
She told him to run away?
From what? From whom?
“Ah, come to think of it, Jenas said she has an older sister. Her name is Anata…….”
“Anata? Anata Shanette Rohade is here too?” Kayden asked me back in surprise.
“Jenas talked about her as if she was dead. But if the woman you see in the sanctuary chamber has silver hair and red eyes, then she may be Anata. She has the appearance characteristic of the Rohade family.”
Why was Anata sealed there? Why did Jenas hide that fact? Could it be that Jenas was the one who sealed Anata?
There are too many unanswered questions.
As I was deep in thought, I heard Enoch’s voice. I raised my head and looked at him.
“Did you say there’s a ‘sanctuary chamber’ in there, and it says ‘sealed’ on the door?”
I nodded my head in affirmation.
Enoch stroked his chin and wrinkled the bridge of his nose as if to recall something.
Then he said in a low voice.
“……it was a custom in the Ingram Dynasty, and there is a saying that if you make a sanctuary chamber and seal a person alive, their soul becomes a guardian spirit.”
Enoch looked calm and firm, as if he was not particularly agitated in the midst of the shocking stories that poured out.
He continued calmly, “Maybe the source of the fog that surrounded the cabin was not Jenas’ magic, but the magic of the sealed soul.”
