I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 13
I frowned at the unexpected contact.
However, I immediately thought that this was an opportunity. I looked at him and pushed him hard.
Taking advantage, I kicked his shin and got up quickly. He groaned in pain and fell.
I quickly woke up and ran straight through the bushes.
I heard footsteps chasing me behind my back.
I was out of breath. Beads of sweat dripped down my temple and immediately fell on the tip of my chin. Even if he has no intention of killing me now, I don’t want to get involved with him. Because I don’t want to spend time trembling in fear that one day I will die at his hand.
Enoch alone was enough to frighten me.
I braked my foot to turn the corner and went straight down the hill.
I was out of breath.
“Wait a minute! Wait!”
I clenched my teeth at Kayden’s call came from not far away.
In front of me, I saw a huge thick tree. Thick branches stretched down the slope.
I sped up my run and leaped. Then, after hanging lightly on the branch that stretched down the slope, I jumped straight down.
I rolled lightly on the ground to reduce the impact. The dress was turned upside down and there was dirt on my face, but of course, I had no energy to care about my face right now.
I jumped up again and ran like crazy.
By the time I thought I couldn’t feel the presence behind my back, I tripped over a stone and rolled down a sloping cliff. My vision kept changing as I fell and rolled down.
My body, which had been rolling like that, crashed into a solid tree and finally stopped. I screamed in pain.
‘Damn it, what if my ribs are broken?’
As the pain intensified, my vision became hazy.
‘I ran away from Kayden, though.’
I think I found Margaret’s hidden talent.
The master of running away.
I soon lost consciousness after complimenting myself.
5. Relationships Are Bound to Change
When I woke up, I found myself lying on the ground where I had fallen.
My whole body ached as if I had been beaten. I gritted my teeth and got up.
Contrary to my fears, my ribs did not appear to have been broken. More fortunately, Kayden also seemed to have not yet found me.
That’s when I realized I was holding something tight in my hand. I opened my grip, and there was Kayden’s pendant, shining.
‘Did he come after me because of this?’
At that time, a stabbing pain came from the soles of my feet and heels.
I tucked the pendant into my dress pocket and took off my flat shoes a bit. There was blood. It looks like the blister has burst again.
I tore the hem of my dress. Then I threw away the blood-stained cloth and wrapped a new cloth around my feet. Even in situations where disinfection was not possible, the wound had to be protected.
After the treatment, I put on my flat shoes again. I looked up at the sky to measure the time. The sky was a pale purple.
“It was around the afternoon when I was being chased by Kayden…… Is it dusk now?”
I don’t know how long I’ve been unconscious.
If it’s dusk and not dawn, it would be dangerous to move right now. This is because the time for the monsters to be active is near.
“Enoch must be alone in the cave, wounded……”
I shook my head while thinking about it. Right now, I have to worry about myself, not Enoch. I calmly looked around and found a place to hide.
Fortunately, there were no monsters nearby.
Still, I was anxious, so I kept my movements to a minimum and hid under a large rock.
As I was crumpling under the rock, a hard object caught under my feet.
I crawled out from under the rock, bowed my head, and looked inside. There was something like a white box.
I stretched out my hand and took out the object with difficulty, and examined it. The red cross logo was engraved on the lid of the rectangular box.
It is an unfamiliar object that does not suit this jungle. I stared at the box with a puzzled look for a moment.
“Hey, hold on. Red cross logo? Could this be……?”
Due to the assimilation of memories with Margaret, for a while, only memories of the Langridge Empire filled my head and I couldn’t recognize the first aid kit quickly.
When I opened the box and found the medicine inside, I shouted ‘Eureka!’ in my heart.
It appeared to be the same item as the first aid kit that Yuanna found in the original novel.
I carefully checked the medicines. Everything is written in Korean. That’s why the characters who didn’t know Hangul couldn’t even use half of the medicines.
For a brief moment of joy, I heard the wolf howl from afar, and I hurriedly went under the rock with the first aid kit in my hand. I had cramps in my leg, but I couldn’t get out.
I covered my mouth with my hand and hid under the rock, holding my breath.
Tens of thousands of thoughts ran through my mind. Compared to the time I was with Enoch, an overwhelming fear enveloped me.
At the same time, I heard the sound of stepping on the grass somewhere. My body froze as if I had been doused with cold water.
I was worried that my heart would stop like this. I couldn’t move and held my breath.
This time, the sound of footsteps coming from a short distance moved slowly.
Then, it stopped,
And then stepped back,
It was a step as if to find something. Is it Kayden’s?
As the sound got closer, my heart pounded faster.
At this rate, I thought I would scream, so I covered my mouth with both hands.
A pair of legs stopped before my eyes.
The legs that were visible through the rock gap were covered with black hair.
Those are big legs. The leg is twice the size of an adult male’s leg.
The legs that had been standing facing the side turned around slowly. The legs, which moved counterclockwise, came to a standstill at some point. Its toes were looking at me.
I thought my heart stopped. Without realizing it, I held my breath.
The unknown beast knelt down on one knee and sat down slowly.
Then, a finger with fluffy hair came in through the rock gap. The body was also slowly coming down.
I couldn’t even close my eyes and trembled with my open eyes. What if I die like this?
It was then.
Suddenly a loud roar resounded throughout the forest.
The movement of the beast, which had been bowing down, stopped. Its upper body turned around.
The beast, which had been looking somewhere for a long time, suddenly stood up. The hand that had reached the rock gap also moved away.
The beast ran somewhere with a loud sound of footsteps.
Until the beast completely disappeared and no sound was heard, I only shivered on the spot.
Fortunately, the time I woke up after I fainted was not in the evening, but in the morning. The sky slowly started to clear.
I couldn’t get out of the rock until the sun was completely up.
“……what the hell was that?”
It didn’t seem to be a typical wild animal form. Then again, there were only monsters, but it was a type of monster that I had never read about in the novel.
The monsters appearing in the novel 《Something More Important Than Survival》 are basically creatures that exist on earth, so there were no monsters that looked so heterogeneous.
I think I read the description that they are constantly transforming and evolving bodies, but it’s not accurate.
“Come to think of it, the last wolf-type monsters I encountered had also changed their bodies little by little.”
Now, the contents of the novels I read were also starting to fade away. My head was throbbing.
The shock from a while ago did not go away easily.
Will I be able to survive on this island to the end?
I squatted in front of the rock with the first aid kit in my hand and looked around. The morning sun was shining, but I hesitated because I was afraid that there might be some monsters left.
It wasn’t until midday when the sun was bright that I began to move cautiously.
I do not know where this place is, but can I find the cave where Enoch is waiting?
For the first time, I missed Enoch very much. I think my mind will calm down only when I see him.
