I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 26
Unlike us, who only went back and forth between cave and beach, the question came from speculation that Kayden must have wandered a lot from place to place.
Kayden shrugged his shoulders.
“I’ve never seen anyone else. I was always looking for dried radish leaves.”
“Why did you look for that?”
When I asked him, he stroked his chin. Then he looked at us thinking about whether to tell us what he was hiding.
As if he had made a decision, he soon opened his mouth.
“There’s something I need to find out.”
“……what have you found?’
“On this island, magic cannot be used, but there are monsters that appear because of magic. It’s weird.”
I felt like I was hit in the head by what Kayden said.
Why didn’t I think of that?
“There are a lot of weird things.”
Enoch answered as he rubbed his temple hard.
“I went on a reconnaissance today, and there was an unknown word written on the cliff.”
The word Enoch wrote with a branch on the ground was none other than the English alphabet.
“Oh, I saw that, too. It was also engraved on the body of the monster,” Kayden said.
I suddenly remembered the flare gun I picked up from the mountain and hurriedly rummaged through my dress pocket. Fortunately, the flare gun remained the same.
When I took the red flare gun out of my pocket, Kayden approached me with a curious face.
“I picked it up on my way back from the mountain a few days ago…… The flames that exploded in the sky, I was the one who did it with this.”
“What? Did you do that? With this? How?”
Kayden asked back with a surprised face. Enoch looked at me for a moment with a face that had a lot to say.
“I didn’t mean to hide it. I forgot about this and that……”
I accidentally forgot to tell Enoch and Kayden because they made strange confessions one after another.
“It’s amazing that this small object made a flame. How did you do that?”
Kayden asked me again with a curious face.
“I didn’t know it was an object with fireworks. I was touching this and that, and suddenly something came out……”
Kayden took the flare gun from me and looked at it.
Enoch, who was still looking at me, asked,
“Is it a magic tool?”
“Well, I don’t know about that.”
It was originally used to send rescue signals, but I swallowed my words while trying to answer that this seemed to have been modified. It’s also weird for me to know the use of the object that no one knows.
When Kayden opened the bullet box and saw the bullet, he looked at me with a surprised face.
“I think this is a magic tool. I can feel the mana.”
Mana? Was it not a modern item?
Is this renovated by someone named Alea using modern things? It’s a story that’s possible enough.
“When I pulled something that looked like a trigger, the flame went out. Wait, that’s not what’s important now.”
I pointed at the letters Alea on the side of the flare gun.
“I told you I learned Eastern languages. It’s read as Alea, but it’s like a human name. Maybe, is it the owner’s name of this magic tool?”
‘But what does the word ‘Alea’ mean?’
Latin or Greek. It’s definitely a word I’ve seen somewhere. I think I learned the meaning of that word when I studied physical education in the past.
I tried to roll my brain hard, but I gave up because I couldn’t remember. I’ll have to think about it again later.
“There must have been people living here before besides us.”
So it was clear that there was a cabin and a bunker.
“Alea…… We can’t rule out the possibility that people lived on this island. There is also the possibility that they are still alive.”
At Enoch’s guess, Kayden nodded.
“The owner of this magic tool may still be alive. It could be him who kidnapped us.”
If Alea is the culprit, is this island in Korea?
Are we being tested on an island used as an experiment like in movies or dramas?
But if the hypothesis is true, how are people from another world here?
It was still full of riddles. I wasn’t sure exactly what it was, but ‘Alea’ was the first direct information I got since I woke up on this remote island.
“First of all, we’ll have to look for more information. It’s difficult to make an accurate judgment based solely on this.”
Kayden and I nodded at Enoch’s words.
“Okay. First of all, let’s get the bed ready. The sun is setting.”
Hearing my words, Enoch looked up at the sky and put out the bonfire.
After that night, Enoch’s hostile attitude toward Kaiden seemed to have softened a bit.
However, there was still no change to the fact that if Kayden tried to approach me, he immediately stood in front of me and was busy stopping him.
8. Surviving in a Relationship
Early in the morning, when I woke up, I couldn’t see Kayden in the cave.
I was puzzled and went out to the entrance of the cave and looked around. Just in time, Kayden returned through the bushes.
He folded his eyes to the fullest and smiled beautifully.
“You woke up early again today.”
His wizard’s robe was full of black ink. I narrowed my brow and looked closely at the hem of his robe.
“Where are you going?”
Now, to some extent, I have adapted to living with Kayden.
Kayden glanced at his robe and shrugged.
“I went hunting all night because the wolves were noisy. I almost went crazy from that. But it’s refreshing now.”
Kayden laughed after talking about hunting, but it was also a little creepy. It seems that those ink-like things were the blood of wolf-type monsters.
‘What if he goes crazy all of a sudden?’
He has a constitution where magic keeps accumulating in his body.
The earring that was playing that role was broken, so I didn’t know that he was hunting monsters like that to relieve stress.
Since the original is an R-19 romance novel, Yuanna’s way of solving Kayden’s problems in the novel is also done according to the genre. But that wasn’t the way I could do it.
‘I think there will be another way.’
At that moment, I remembered what Margaret had learned to control mana in the past.
“Controlling mana is like breathing. You have to keep training your Dantian to flow it. Young Lady has a fairly large amount of mana, so if you develop your physical strength, you can control your mana.”
That’s what Margaret’s magic teacher said at the time. Maybe that method will work for Kayden.
Besides, he said that he felt refreshed after going monster hunting.
After the sun came up completely, I decided to go straight to practice.
Now that Kayden looks fine, I’ll have to get him to work too. It was too much for me to prepare three people’s meals only with Enoch.
When I returned from picking up firewood, I found Kayden sitting in front of the cave resting. Then I handed the firewood to him.
“Enoch went to get some coconuts. Make a fire until he comes back. You know how to make a fire, don’t you?”
Kayden took the firewood from me and looked at me with a puzzled look.
He doesn’t seem to know how to start a fire. I sighed and patted him on the shoulder as if encouraging him.
“Then I will tell you how to make a fire when Enoch comes back. While waiting for him, would you like to get some more firewood? A lot of firewood.”
I picked up the harpoon I had set in front of the cave and a bag made of large leaves.
It was difficult for me to get him to do the job without leaving any doubts behind.
‘Well, it’s fine as long as he does as he’s told.’
I decided to take it easy.
“I’m good at starting fires, but I’m lazy now, so I’ll just get some firewood.”
Kayden said with a bright face.
Come to think of it, Kayden was an omnivorous intellectual who acquired all knowledge regardless of field. There’s no way he can’t make a fire.
“All right. I’ll go hunting then.”
Kayden asked me with his eyes wide open in disbelief.
