I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 15
Sponsored by Pamela Xiong 💗
Enoch stared at Margaret. Her eyes looking at him were so lovely that he wondered how he didn’t know it until now.
“I won’t get hurt, so don’t do anything dangerous to find such a medicinal plant.”
Enoch gently grabbed her shoulders. The feeling of her bare skin touching his hand made him dizzy for a moment.
He wants to touch her a little more. Barely suppressing his crazy desire, he lightly leaned his forehead against hers. The tip of his nose that touched her nose tickled.
It’s not clear what his feelings were for her, but it was certain that he didn’t want to lose her, at least.
“I was worried.”
He’s glad she’s safe.
He almost went mad as he wandered around looking for her all night.
Then Enoch found a bruise on her cheekbone.
There was dirt on her face here and there, and a bruise that he hadn’t noticed because he wasn’t sane until a while ago.
“What is this?”
He didn’t know why he had such intense emotions, but he felt very uncomfortable.
She blinked her pretty eyes and looked up at him. He gently stroked her cheek with his large hand, feeling her soft skin.
She furrowed her brows as if feeling uncomfortable. It was too pretty to look at, so he was almost crazy again.
“Are you hurt?”
“Oh, I, I think I have a bruise?”
Margaret stepped back, covering her cheek with her hand, with a bewildered face. She didn’t seem to know that it was an act that made him even crazier.
“It’s fine. Don’t worry about it.”
“How can I not be worried?”
At his answer, Margaret looked at him again, bewildered.
“It’s really surprising. Your Highness said such a thing, it seems the fever hasn’t gone down yet.”
She glanced at him with a wary gaze.
“Anyway, don’t worry about the title……”
Then he suddenly remembered his own words.
“It’s just a consideration as a gentleman’s duty to help a young lady. So I hope you don’t have vain expectations.”
Enoch wanted to turn back the time that had passed. He even thought to erase the bad words and rudeness he had uttered toward her.
But Margaret opened her mouth first as if not interested.
“By the way, I’m really hungry and about to die of starvation.”
She frowned as if she was really hungry and covered her stomach with her hand.
“Can’t we go hunting? Of course, I’ll treat your wounds first.”
Enoch sighed. Once she says she’s hungry, he’ll have to feed her.
There were more than one or two strange things.
It was the fact that Enoch had been wandering through the forest all night looking for me, and that he asked me to call him by his first name.
But the strangest thing is that he started calling me Margaret instead of Lady Floné.
‘What the hell happened while I was away?’
I tilted my head as I looked through the first aid kit to properly heal Enoch’s wounds.
I looked intently at the medicines packed in the first aid kit.
It is a fairly large medicine box, so there are various types of medicines in it. There were many medicines that I had never seen before, but there were rough instructions and explanations written on them.
‘I always thought about it while reading the novel. Why is this here?’
I still don’t know what the author intended to make a useless item called a ‘Korean Survival Kit.’
Enoch followed my gaze, looked at the first aid kit, and narrowed his brows.
“I can’t even tell what is written on it.”
Of course. Because everything was written in Korean.
I did not respond to Enoch’s words. I thought it would be best to avoid the answer if I could.
While looking at what medicines were in the medicine box, I found a disinfectant.
With it, I cleaned Enoch’s wounds first, then cut a bandage and wrapped it around his arm.
Enoch watched me skillfully use the medicine and treat his wounds. He took the medicine I used from the first aid kit box and looked at it, frowned.
“How do you know that this is a disinfectant?”
Enoch’s question made me in trouble again. How do I explain this?
I searched through Margaret’s memories and came up with an excuse that was not unusual at all.
“Do you know the eastern continent across the sea? I think it is the language spoken there. I have learned that language for a while.
Enoch didn’t seem to believe it, but at least he didn’t mind it.
“Aren’t you going to tell me about the bruise on your face?”
And again, he asked about the bruise on my face as he stared at me.
“I fell down.”
“Is that really all?”
Are you asking because you know something?
Enoch was still staring straight at me. So I pondered for a while.
Come to think of it, there was no reason not to tell Enoch that I had met Kayden.
At first, I wanted to somehow cry that it was just the two of us on this island. However, now that all my original plans have gone awry, I wondered what the use of such lies would be.
I took a deep breath as I carefully bandaged the soles of my feet and adjusted my flat shoes.
“I met a strange man.”
Kayden has strange eyes, so he must be a strange man, right? Even in the novel, he is described as a madman.
“A pendant fell from the robe the man was wearing, and I was lying under him at the time, so it was a direct hit in my cheekbone.”
I was surprised to see the wooden rod in Enoch’s hand was suddenly cut in two.
“……you still don’t know who that man is?”
Enoch asked with a calm face, but somehow I felt a strange atmosphere.
“Ah, let me see……”
I rummaged through my dress pocket and pulled out the pendant.
“It’s the symbol of the Tower.”
At Enoch’s murmuring, I looked at the pendant again.
An amethyst in the shape of a teardrop is embedded in the center of the pendant crafted with a sun pattern. As Enoch said, it was a symbol of the Tower.
“That man must be a wizard.”
I answered casually. And slowly, I brought up another topic of discussion.
“By the way, I have a question.”
Enoch looked at me.
“Your Highness, do you have seizures when you see blood?”
At my question, Enoch bit his lip with a puzzled face.
Of course, I knew he had seizures when he saw blood, but if I were the real Margaret, I wouldn’t have known.
“I know it’s a rude question, but it’s something I need to know.”
There were too many things I had to pretend I didn’t know.
Enoch avoided my gaze. Then he licked his lips as if he was contemplating something, and replied after taking a deep breath,
“It was a seizure that could be suppressed. In fact, it has been well suppressed in the Empire……”
He continued with a troubled face,
“There’s no reason. I’m sorry.”
Then he bowed his head like a sinner.
“It’s not your fault. It’s fine. My question is how to control it.”
At my question, Enoch had a troubled look on his face. I asked him out of curiosity as he kept looking at me,
“Don’t say…… you don’t know how to control it?”
“I’m sorry to you, but I’m not sure either. I started having seizures after I came back from the battlefield. I was treated with various medications in the Imperial Palace, but not much has changed.”
He rubbed his face with his hands, feeling guilty.
Then he looked at me and carefully opened his mouth,
“Margaret, when you told me to stop…… it seemed effective
