I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 17

His muscular chest touched my back. His body was as firm as a sculpture carved by an artist.
“I’m okay. Thank you.”
Somewhat embarrassed, I turned my head.
I turned my back on him and looked down at Kayden. He was still holding my wrist. His physical strength was so great that it’s hard to escape from his grip.
“Just a moment.”
At that time, Enoch’s low voice was heard asking for understanding. Enoch’s big hand then wrapped around my wrist at once.
He easily let go of Kayden’s grip from my hand. Only then can I stand up straight.
“It left a mark.”
He gently patted my red wrist with his thumb. The area where his fingers rubbed tickled, which made me feel weird.
“Shall I kill him?”
I responded reflexively to Enoch’s murmur and shook my head in surprise.
“Wait, what? No! Be patient. You have to control your anger.”
He burst into laughter as I hurriedly stopped him. Maybe he had no intention of doing that from the beginning, so he immediately came up with something else.
“I think this man is Archmage Kayden.”
He identified Kayden’s identity at once.
After all, Enoch is the Crown Prince of the Empire, and it’s impossible that he doesn’t know about the existence of the Archmage. Even Kayden was said to be the only great wizard on the continent.
Enoch sighed as he looked at Kayden with a displeased face.
“……I hate to admit it, but the wizard’s knowledge might be useful.”
After saying that, Enoch looked at me as if asking for my opinion.
“I will tie him up and bring him in. If he doesn’t agree to be tied up, I’ll kick him out.”
……he seems to think I wouldn’t agree to tie Kayden.
However, it can’t be. I nodded vigorously and agreed with him.
First, Enoch moved the coconut bowls and harpoons with fish into the cave.
Then he took the hem of the torn dress he had used yesterday as a bandage and tied Kayden’s limbs tightly.
The entrance to the cave was slightly raised from the ground, so Enoch had no choice but to lift up Kayden and move him.
He put Kayden down on the side of the cave and went to prepare dinner. I quietly observed Kayden’s condition.
“Did he get hurt?”
There was blood on the shirt seen under his robe.
I hurriedly turned to Enoch. Fortunately, he seemed busy preparing the fruit in the coconut bowl.
I pondered for a moment, then I carefully took off Kayden’s shirt. I had to check the condition of how serious the wound was.
“Oh my gosh……”
There was a long scar near his chest. It was a scratch on an animal.
The wound was deeper than expected, and the condition looked serious. It seems that I didn’t see the blood before because he was wearing a wizard robe.
“I have to start with hemostasis.”
[Hemostasis is the mechanism that leads to the cessation of bleeding from a blood vessel.]
After muttering to myself, I belatedly realized that I had been staring at Kayden’s wound for too long. Cold sweat ran down my back.
‘Enoch didn’t see this because he was busy preparing dinner, right?’
With that thought in mind, I slowly raised my head, but my ominous feeling did not go away.
Enoch was looking at this side.
Enoch looked at Kayden’s wound and then closed his eyes tightly as if realizing his mistake.
“……Margaret, I think you should tie me up, too.”
Damn. How could I be so careless?
I tore the hem of my dress further and tied his hands and feet.
He let out a hot breath with a painful face.
I called out his name cautiously.
As if it were a signal, his breathing stopped.
But Enoch, who seemed to have calmed down for a while, clenched his teeth and groaned like a beast. He rose from his seat with his hands tied.
‘Damn! It didn’t work.’
I quickly blocked Enoch’s attack aimed at Kayden. Perhaps because he had lost his senses, he easily lost his balance and fell down.
I ran to him and stepped on him, preventing him from getting up.
“Stop it. Enoch, wait.”
If it were the sane Enoch with his non-human powers, he would have pushed me away easily, but unexpectedly, he became docile after being stepped on by me.
Enoch looked at me with tears in his eyes full of resentment.
I managed to suppress the urge to put my feet away.
With a hoarse voice, he called me by my name, “Margaret.”
Then he growled again.
“Get rid of this, as long as I’m still being nice.”
“I don’t want to.”
I pointed my finger at him.
Like a mother who scolds her child who doesn’t listen to her, I spoke in a voice that was as determined and stern as possible.
“Stop it, Enoch. Right now.”
Gradually, the madness disappeared from Enoch’s eyes. I let out a sigh of relief.
“This really works.”
Enoch, who was exhausted, fainted. I carried him to the wall of the cave and tied his wrists and ankles with a cloth.
Wiping the sweat from my forehead, I looked at Enoch’s peacefully sleeping face.
Then, suddenly feeling skeptical, I sat down.
“How the hell did this man survive in the original work without me?”
I’ve never seen Yuanna control Enoch so harshly in the original story. I moaned irritably as I shook my head.
“FXXk, I’m tired!”
I let go of my thoughts and started treating Kayden’s wound.
The dress cloth, which was used as a towel substitute, was wetted with running water in the cave to clean the area around the wound. Then, after washing the cloth clean again, I tried to stop bleeding by pressing it lightly on the wounded area.
Even when he fainted, Kayden let out a moan as if he could feel the pain.
Then I suddenly remembered the monster I ran into while being chased by Kayden a few days ago.
At that time, a roar suddenly echoed in the forest. The monster that was in front of me suddenly disappeared as if it had found something else.
What was the cause of the roar at that time?
I shook my head and cleared my thoughts. Let’s ask that later when Kayden wakes up.
After finding a disinfectant and pouring it over the wound to disinfect it, I found a bandage.
Because it was the chest area, I had to use a lot more bandages, but there were not many bandages left. If someone else gets hurt in the future, bandages will definitely be needed, which is a big deal.
I looked again at the bandage wrapper just in case, and on the transparent wrapper of the bandage was written ‘Roselastic’ (elastic band). This bandage has the advantage of being reusable after washing several times.
“I can also recycle what Enoch used. That’s a relief.”
I feel reassured somehow.
“Yeah, in the forest, a first aid kit is more important than the male lead.”
I cut a piece of flesh-colored medical adhesive tape and attached it to the bandage closure. And I relieved my anxiety only after checking the fever by touching Kayden’s cheeks and neck.
Enoch, who had fainted, came to his senses.
He leaned against the wall and slowly opened his eyes as he sat down.
“Are you okay?”
At my question, Enoch looked blankly at his hands and feet for a moment.
Seeing his face gradually saddened with guilt, I approached him.
“I’ll untie it.”
He quietly shook his head at my words.
He had no expression on his face, but it seemed that in his deep heart, unknown emotions were raging passionately.
He slowly held out his hands toward me. I untied the knot that tied his wrists and closed the medicine box with a tired face.
“Margaret, are you okay?”
He asked me with a worried look on his face.
“No, I’m not. I’m so tired.”
“It’s not your fault. You don’t have to be sorry.”
At my words, Enoch closed his mouth again with a heavy face.
As I was about to pack up the first aid kit and move Kayden, Enoch came to help. He moved Kayden to a corner and looked at him, who had been treated late.
With a first aid kit in my hands, I returned to my seat and sat down.
He approached me and sat on one knee.
“Are the wounds okay? Not that wizard, but you. Are your wounds okay?”
Enoch gently stroked my cheek. The bruising has subsided a lot, so it doesn’t hurt to touch that much anymore.
He said to me in a low voice as if whispering a secret.
“If you ever want to get rid of him, tell me. It’s not that difficult.”
No, it’s going to be a bit difficult to get rid of Kayden.
“Then you’re going to have another seizure?”
Enoch laughed softly at my question.
“Then things will be easier.”
It’s kind of creepy. It felt ominous because it felt like the cruelty that was latent in him was slowly awakening.
You are not going to go crazy like in the original novel, are you?
