I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 23
I could accidentally step on the wrong foot and fall, but fear came over me and I couldn’t slow down my run.
As the sun began to set, the sky began to darken as well.
The sound of a wolf howling from somewhere gave me a cold sweat.
I heard the sound of something quickly chasing me behind my back. I could hear the sound of breaking through the bushes.
The sound was getting closer and closer. I just wanted to cry.
I ran down for a long time, but it was still in the middle of the mountain. It looked like another blister had burst on my poor sole, but I had no time to worry about it.
-owoooo! owoooo! owoooo!
And the monsters that chased after me suddenly started sending signals.
Are you going to invite more monsters? I wondered how many monsters were chasing me, but there was no time to look back.
I’m almost there. A little more!
I braked my feet when I came to a corner, then turned sideways and rounded a boulder, and descended.
Even if I don’t look back, the presence of the monsters chasing after me is terrifying.
I was running down for a long time, and in the midst of this, I caught a man walking leisurely in my sight.
Wait, a man?
“Move! Move! Move!!”
I shouted out loud.
The man looked back at me very slowly, and as I passed by him, I snatched his wrist and ran together.
“What, what happened?!”
The man was led by my hand and ran down the mountain with me, shouting at me. His face was white from seeing the monsters chasing behind his back.
“Why the hell do monsters gather like that? Could it be because of the strange magic that just popped out of the sky?”
“First of all, did you know that magic doesn’t work on this island?”
The man nodded at my question.
“So what you saw earlier is not magic!”
I felt like crying at the sound of the roars of the raging monsters behind me.
It seems to be true that monsters flocked this way because of the fireworks.
However, if it was an ordinary flare gun, it wouldn’t make an explosion so flashy as fireworks.
‘How did you modify it?’
As we reached the end of the descent course, the slope gradually became gentler, but it was not easy to run on the slope.
The man and I ran like crazy. I was out of breath.
As I was running roughly, the flare gun I put in my dress pocket hit my thigh.
As I was paying attention to the sensation felt in my thigh as I hit the branches blocking my way, I suddenly came up with an idea to overcome this situation.
“I have a good idea! Lie down when I give you a signal.”
I took the gun flare I just picked up from my pocket. Then I measured where to stop.
Fortunately, there was a huge rock about 50m ahead. I can hide behind it.
“Yes? What do you mean?”
The man asked with a face that he did not understand what I said, but I did not have time to answer his question.
I immediately loaded the magazine and pulled the hammer down. Leaning my back against the rock, I turned around and said to the man,
While the man hurriedly dropped his body, I shot a flare at the monsters running towards us.
Red smoke pierced through more than ten wolf-type monsters, and a huge flame exploded after a moment.
Then, as if a bomb had exploded, the nearby monsters were bounced off.
I knelt down next to the man and waited for the flames to subside.
After a long time, the flames went out and the roars of the monsters could not even be heard, so I quietly lifted my head with the man.
The monsters were annihilated.
I looked back at the thing I had just used to shoot. What looks like a revolver gun is a flare gun. It also shoots beautiful fireworks flares!
“Haa, I survived.”
I sighed and sat down with a tired look on my face.
The man looked at me with an annoyed face and asked, “Who the hell are you?”
It was a very deep voice.
His long aqua hair reached down to his chest, and he is so beautiful. I think he is prettier than me.
As soon as I saw his long hair, I recognized his identity.
He is Archbishop Ruzef, one of the twelve priests of the Holy See who was recently nominated for the papacy.
Ruzef asked me again with an angry look on his face, “Are you a witch?”
“Do you think I am a witch?”
Of course, he must have never seen flares or fireworks, so he might find them strange magic.
You might think so. But in the novel, you never said that the female lead was a witch even if she used strange things……!
“Then, who are you?”
“Shouldn’t you introduce yourself first? I just saved you, but you’re talking so~ nicely to me. I guess you want to become monster food?”
As I pretended to shoot the flare gun I was holding toward the sky, Ruzef’s face turned white.
He looked at me with a calmer face than before, probably because he realized that I had saved him before. Then he answered with his characteristic deep voice,
“First of all, thank you for saving me.”
‘First of all? What else do you want to say?’
Nevermind. I was relieved after turning the shoulder strap to confirm that there was a bullet pocket safely inside the bamboo barrel.
Then Ruzef suddenly grabbed my shoulder.
Then he scanned my face and suddenly pointed.
“Young Lady Floné?”
After that, he frowned with a displeased face, even though I did not say yes.
“Did you come after me all the way here? Do you still want me to make you a love potion?”
A love potion? What kind of bullshit……
At that moment, memories of Margaret’s past flashed through my mind.
Margaret followed Ruzef’s back and forth, asking him to make her love potion with his holy water so that Enoch could fall in love with her.
However, when Ruzef did not listen to her, it seems that she tormented him in a number of ways. Then she encouraged another priest to carry out the ‘Love Potion’ experiment and even sponsored it.
He deserves to hate Margaret.
Margaret, what the hell are you living for? You have too many enemies!
I pretended not to know and said,
“It’s not like that. And I’m not the young lady of Floné.”
I lied shamelessly, but Ruzef wasn’t fooled and glared at me.
“Young Lady Floné, was it you who kidnapped me to this island?”
Now, he’s even intimidating me. If I’m swayed by what he says, I might really be falsely accused when I meet other male leads later. Isn’t that too unfair?
I jumped up from my seat and pointed at him.
“Why are you so rude? I’m not Floné. I’m not a young lady! And I almost died, too.”
He was taken aback by my shout and got up from his seat haphazardly.
“Wait, Young Lady, why are you suddenly shouting and making a fuss……!”
“Young lady who? I said no! You! I saved your life! You live because of me. That’s right, isn’t it? “
“That, yes, but……!”
They say you will win if your voice is louder than the person you are talking to, whether you are right or wrong.
“Then, bow down and say ‘Thank you, I will repay you a hundredfold.’ even if it is not enough! Ha!”
I did not hesitate and raised my voice to the end.
“Until I leave, say ‘Thank you~’ while bowing down! Got it?”
And I learned that when there seems to be no solution, I have to run away.
I muttered nonsense like that and then jumped.
It’s okay, it’s okay. We won’t meet again in the future anyway.
