I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 20
When I opened my eyes, I was already in the cave.
It was midnight when I woke up. As I tossed and turned, I realized that my head was on someone’s hard lap.
Startled, I jumped up, and Enoch, who was leaning against the wall of the cave with his eyes closed, slowly opened his eyes.
“Oh, are you awake?”
Enoch said in a deep voice. How sexy……oh, this is not the time to think like this.
At my question, Enoch bit his lower lip.
At that moment, the moonlight was seeping into the cave, and his face was clearly visible.
I blinked my eyes and looked at Enoch’s face, not knowing what he was talking about.
“You had a fever. But I didn’t know which medicine I should give you.”
Only then did I look at the first aid kit next to Enoch. Medicines were scattered.
“I’ve never been this helpless in my entire life.”
His well-formed face was contorted as if in pain.
“It’s not Enoch’s fault…… Oh, by the way, where did you find my dress?”
Enoch bit his lips tightly as if he was in trouble with my question.
Looking at that face, I had a hunch. Finally, the time has come. He must have met someone. Either one of the male leads or the female lead, or all of them.
‘Is the peace finally over?’
Even now, I sometimes get attacked by monsters, so I can’t say it’s peaceful though.
I became sullen, lowering my shoulders and bowing my head.
Then, a gentle hand touched my head. To my surprise, Enoch was stroking my hair.
I looked up in surprise and met Enoch’s eyes. He was stroking my head as if stroking a puppy.
‘What’s with those eyes? Does he really think I’m a puppy?’
While I was thinking about it, Enoch said in a soft voice,
“I met Sir Diego. He was the one who stole your dress.”
Damn it. As expected.
‘No, but why did the commander of the guards steal the dress of a woman who was taking a bath? Where did his morale of the knight go?’
“Where is that bastard—no, Sir Diego?”
Enoch apologized to me with a calm face,
“He was a man of mine, and I apologize for his disrespectful behavior.”
“Why are you apologizing?”
“If you want him to directly apologize to you, tell me. I will drag him.”
Seeing Enoch’s serious expression, maybe he would really bring Diego in front of me right away if I asked him to.
I let out a sigh for no reason. I’m not crazy. Do you think I’ll go to meet another male lead? It’s like walking directly into hellfire.
Enoch alone was enough, but even now, there was Kayden too. It was too much for me to deal with only two male leads.
“It’s okay. I’ll take my own revenge later.”
Enoch laughed a little at my answer.
“Will you take revenge yourself?”
“Of course, I have to. I am a person who gives back what I have been given. I’ll tell Sir Diego to be careful with the back of his head. I mean, he will never know when I will go to steal his clothes.”
Of course, I’m not going to do it now, but I’ll definitely steal it before I escape the island.
“Is there anyone else?”
I glanced at Enoch secretly. According to the original work, it was clear that Diego would be with the other main characters.
“That…… I don’t know.”
Enoch gave an ambiguous answer, not sure if he really didn’t know or just pretended not to.
I tilted my head, watching Enoch’s expression closely, but it was difficult to understand what was in his heart.
“Isn’t it better to move together to escape the island? Shouldn’t we gather information?”
Enoch stopped stroking my hair, put his fist on his chin, and thought. Then he said to me,
“It makes sense, but I don’t think we need to go around together. I decided to exchange information with Sir Diego once every ten days.”
As Enoch said, Diego was the commander of the Imperial Guards of the Langridge Empire, so he is Enoch’s man. Of course, I thought I would move with Diego as well, but Enoch’s answer was quite surprising.
“I think he’s in a similar situation to us. Well, I don’t know much.”
Still resting his chin on his fist, he rolled his eyes and glanced down at me. Then he quietly reached out and stroked my hair again.
‘What? Why are you doing this?’
But the touch was not uncomfortable. In fact, I felt strangely relaxed. So this is how it feels when someone gently strokes my hair.
I never received such a friendly touch when I was Lee Jinju. Because I didn’t get along well with people.
“Don’t worry too much, if I get any useful information, I’ll share it.”
Enoch told me to take it easy.
I nodded slowly. Then, all of a sudden, I looked down at the dress I was wearing.
‘Well, by the way, didn’t I faint wearing only chemise?’
Enoch answered quietly as if he had read the meaning of my expression.
“I changed your clothes myself. I tried not to look at it as much as I could, so don’t worry.”
“You mean you looked it?”
At my question, Enoch was silent again.
Oh my gosh, I think I know very well what it feels like to have my face flushed.
The chemise is made of very thin cotton, and my body is wet at the time…… so my body must have been completely exposed.
If I die on this island, the cause will be humiliation.
“Oh my God, I won’t be able to get married.”
[T/N: It’s because you can’t show your body to other men besides your husband]
As I complained, Enoch, who looked like he wanted to say something, spat out bombastic words after licking his lips,
“Are you worried about that? Then, if you marry me, the problem will be solved neatly.”
“Are you serious?”
“Does it sound like a joke?”
No, it sounded so serious. What’s wrong with you?
“But when I asked you to marry me, you refused because you didn’t like me.”
“At that time and now, the situation and everything has changed.”
Everything has changed?
I don’t know why you’re behaving like this.
I clapped my hands to avoid uncomfortable topics.
As if he noticed what I meant, Enoch looked at me without saying a word and let out a heavy sigh.
“I wondered if he had a fever last night too, but he seems to be fine now.”
Enoch’s face looked very tired.
It must have been very difficult for a Crown Prince of the Empire to take care of two patients by himself.
“You worked hard. I think my fever has gone down now.”
He quietly placed his hand on my cheeks and nodded as he judged that my fever had gone down.
“Rest comfortably. I’ll sleep over there.”
Enoch seemed to want to say something, but he sighed and told me to sleep well.
I looked at him with a puzzled look, smiled, and thanked him.
Enoch stared at me for a long time and then nodded. I wasn’t sure what he was thinking.
After I said good night to him, I moved away from him and Kayden, arranged my bed, and went to sleep.
That’s how I ended the day and fell asleep.
I was tossing and turning because my body felt a little heavy, then I opened my eyes because the discomfort did not go away.
And then I met blood-red eyes.
I was about to scream, but Kayden lifted his wrists that were still tied, and brought his index finger to the corner of his mouth.
I reflexively bit my lip as if I were bewitched.
Red eyes glistening with madness look down at me and smile beautifully. Like Enoch, he is also very handsome.
With his wrists tied, he moved just fine. He lowered his head and whispered in my ear.
“Don’t scream, or the Crown Prince will wake up.”
I turned my head and looked in the direction where Enoch was sleeping. Enoch was far away and he had not yet woken up.
“A woman with platinum hair with Prince Enoch……”
Kayden recognized at once that Enoch was the Crown Prince. That means……
“Why did you lie, Margaret?”
It means that he also noticed that I am the Young Lady Floné.
“Is it because I said I didn’t like Young Lady Floné?”
Kayden looked at my surprised face as if it was funny.
“Lying is a bad thing.”
Then he looked at me with his head slightly tilted.
