I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 12
I immediately turned around and started running.
I ran into the 5th male lead who must be avoided.
That man was Kayden Blake Rohade, one of the male leads of the novel 《Something More Important than Survival》.
‘When I read the novel, he was the man I liked the most, but I never wanted to meet him in person because he was the craziest man!’
In the original work, the person who hated Margaret the most was Enoch, and the person who threatened her the most was Kayden.
Margaret eventually died at the hands of Kayden. Other male leads also participated in the murder, but he was the one who decisively murdered Margaret.
After all, life is definitely made up of damn timing!
I frantically ran through the bushes to avoid Kayden. Unfamiliar landscapes pass by quickly.
It was dangerous because I was running to an unknown destination. I could run into wild animals or fall without seeing the cliff.
But all I could think of was running away from Kayden.
“Wait a minute!”
Kayden’s call was heard behind my back.
It’s not that I forgot that I could run into other male leads by accident. Still, such a sudden encounter was quite a shock.
I eventually got caught by Kayden’s hand and rolled with him as I struggled. He climbed on top of me and tied me with both hands.
“Hey, hold on a minute!”
After struggling hard, I got hit in the cheekbone by a pendant that fell off his robe.
“Are you okay?”
Kayden looked carefully at my face.
Only then did I calm down and pick up a pendant that hit my cheekbone. It was a metal pendant in the shape of a shining sun.
Seeing how heavy it is, I think I might have a bruise on my cheekbone that was hit by this.
Kayden, who was observing my face, narrowed his brow and tilted his head.
“Where did I see you?”
I avoided his gaze and bit my lower lip. I tried to put strength on my wrist, but I couldn’t even move because of Kayden’s monstrous power holding me back.
“You look familiar.”
Kayden scanned my face for a long time. Perhaps because his blood-red eyes were eerie, he gave off a terrifying atmosphere.
An uncomfortable silence continued.
“Oh, I’m sorry. Does it hurt? Wake up.”
Kayden belatedly came down from my body and lifted me up. Of course, he grabbed my arm and didn’t let me go.
“Please understand. In a remote place like this, I suddenly met a woman who looked like an aristocrat, of course it’s suspicious to anyone,” Kayden smiled and asked for understanding from me.
I understood rationally, but I was also angry.
First of all, he didn’t seem to have met the female lead yet. Because he seemed alone at first glance.
As he moved his head, I heard the sound of earrings hitting each other.
I looked at the earring in his right ear. It is the earring that was frequently described in the original work.
He was kidnapped by the temple when he was a child and subjected to experiments. Without earrings, he could not control his magical power.
At that time, it was revealed that the kidnapped boy was the second son of the Rohade family, and the public was buzzing, but the Marquis Rohade made a deal with the temple and the case was ended. Kayden was the only tragic victim.
The experiments were conducted in the temple and were sponsored by his family. Because of that past, he hated his family and the temple.
Margaret actually promoted and sponsored the ‘love potion’ experiment at the temple during that time.
As a result, Kayden came to visit the Duke of Floné and resisted it, but Margaret never gave up on her will and continued to sponsor the experiment.
Kayden’s hatred for Margaret is triggered by the incident.
“I don’t know, I can’t remember where I saw your face,” Kayden, who took his eyes off my face after a long time, said with an attractive smile.
Fortunately, he doesn’t seem to remember Margaret’s face.
“But you really are beautiful.”
……how could he say such a thing in a situation like this?
If it were me, I would have said, ‘I didn’t know there was someone else here except me.’, ‘How the hell are you here?’ or ‘Who are you?’ first. Or, like Enoch, he could ask, ‘Are you the culprit?’
But Kayden didn’t ask any of the questions I expected.
He asked me with a ghastly glow in his eyes, “Why did you run away?”
I decided to keep my mouth shut. It’s because I don’t want to get his attention or offend him by opening my mouth for nothing.
“Can’t you talk? It’s strange, you must have screamed a while ago.”
He seemed to want me to open my mouth somehow. I was nervous to see his red eyes gleaming with madness.
‘He’s not going to go wild like Enoch, right?’
As I recall, in the original work, his magic control earring was broken as soon as he woke up on this island.
Thanks to that, the mana in his body failed to purify and stagnated, causing trouble. He suddenly had a high fever and sometimes had a serious lack of control over his emotions.
And the only person who could calm him down was Yuanna. Of course, the method was the same as Enoch’s case of losing control when he saw blood.
……well, that so-called love.
Anyway, I was thinking about whether I should prepare a dog training method for Kayden as in Enoch’s case, and suddenly he lowered his head to me.
A warm breath tickled my sensitive ear.
“Or, you don’t want to talk to me? Even if you don’t want to talk, you have to do it. Will you let me open your mouth then?”
“……what do you want?”
I finally opened my mouth. At that moment, Kayden smiled softly at my question.
He had a very gorgeous appearance. It may be because of his light hair color, but his sharp eyes looked like an untamed wild animal.
The reason I liked Kayden was actually because of his looks.
Kayden’s gaze swept over my face again.
“Your voice is pretty, too.”
“I’m pretty in everything. But why are you talking informally?”
At my question, Kayden shrugged his shoulders indifferently.
“This is more friendly. You can speak informally, too.”
Why do I have to be friendly with you!
But he didn’t seem to have any intention of speaking formally.
Although Kayden was a childish individual, we don’t know each other’s identity yet, so it’s right to speak formally.
Because I and Enoch knew each other’s identity, we couldn’t talk informally.
But Kayden was the first who spoke informally, shouldn’t it be fair if I do the same?
“Hey, let go of me!”
“I don’t want to.”
However, Kayden didn’t seem to care in particular whether or not I was talking informally.
“But no matter how much I look at you…… I think you look a lot like someone I know.”
Kayden looked meticulously at me with a gaze observing something strange.
Well, it was quite some time ago that Kayden came to Floné’s mansion and asked Margaret to stop sponsoring the experiment.
But Margaret rejected Kayden’s request and left him immediately, so the time to meet face to face was very brief. It’s not strange if he can’t remember her face.
“Who are you?”
I asked him a question to keep him from thinking further.
“Kayden Blake Rohade.”
Kayden looked down at me with an attractive dimpled smile.
“Do you know who I am?”
“No,” I shook my head resolutely.
He glanced at my face, tilted his head, and smiled, then suddenly stopped moving and looked straight into my eyes. I avoided his gaze with an ominous premonition.
“Oh wait, I just remembered. You look a bit like a crazy young lady of the Langridge Empire.”
What do you mean crazy? Who are you talking to? You’re the one who’s crazy.
“Don’t you know that it’s rude to say something like that?”
“You are Young Lady Floné, aren’t you?”
I narrowed my eyebrows and shook my head in denial.
Then Kayden laughed as if it was interesting.
He didn’t look like he was recognizing my face and pretending he didn’t know. However, at Kayden’s next words, I caught my breath.
“Really? That’s a relief. I hate her a lot.”
Kayden said jokingly, but I felt like my blood was running dry when I heard it.
It was different from Enoch’s threat to me. Kayden was the one who could really kill me.
I was feeling threatened and nervous.
He immediately tilted his head and shoved his nose into the nape of my neck.
“There’s something strange in your body.”
A hot breath tickled my neck. It is so close that I feel like his lips are touching my skin.
