I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 40
“……huh? What do you mean?”
I asked in surprise, but Yuanna didn’t seem willing to give an answer.
“You really don’t want to be with me, do you? Then I will take the bag.”
“Hey, Saintess. Explain what you mean you have an exit key……?”
Ignoring my words, she reached out to me again, then Ruzef ran to me. After he grabbed Yuanna’s wrist and pushed her away, he stood with his back to me.
“How can you do this, Archbishop?”
Yuanna, who had been smiling moderately the whole time, narrowed her brow and looked at Ruzef, but Ruzef blocked me and did not move.
On the other hand, Kayden and Diego were still fighting.
It was amazing that no one bled so far despite fighting like that. Diego doesn’t seem to be normal either, as he can withstand quite firmly against Kayden, who has tremendous strength.
There was no sign of an end to the fight, so Enoch intervened.
Enoch grabbed Kayden by the back of his neck, pulled him back, and slammed his fist into Diego’s face.
Diego, who was hit by Enoch, flew lightly and hit a wooden pole.
He defeated a big, muscular man with one punch.
I lost my words at that sight.
“Stop it and get up. Margaret is waiting. It’s still hard for me to see blood right now.”
At Enoch’s words, Kayden grumbled and stood up.
Come to think of it, Enoch would have seizures when he saw blood. It was almost a big problem.
‘I almost forgot about it because Yuanna was busy saying weird things.’
But, at that moment, Diego, who fell to the ground, got up with his face covered in blood everywhere.
“You can’t leave before stepping over my corpse.”
Diego seemed to have forgotten the fact that he was the Knight Commander of the Langridge Empire.
I understand that if you stay on a remote island with more monsters than humans, you will go crazy, but shouldn’t you still get your head on straight?
I turned to Enoch with a worried look.
Enoch’s golden eyes, which were staring at Diego, began to tremble. Why are my bad hunches never wrong?
“It is dangerous.”
I tried to run over there, but Ruzef immediately stopped me.
“No, it’s not……!”
Enoch turned slowly. Diego made a puzzled face, noticing that Enoch’s condition was a little strange.
Perhaps Arthdal noticed Enoch’s condition as well, so he quietly called for Enoch.
However, Enoch did not answer.
As he walked slowly towards Diego, there was a harpoon lying on the ground. He stopped walking and looked down at the harpoon at his feet.
He didn’t take any action, but somehow the sight looked terrifying.
Enoch slowly bent down and picked up the harpoon. I called Enoch while Ruzef was still holding my arm.
Of course, he didn’t seem to hear me.
“Hold on, Enoch!”
I called him one more time, but he didn’t answer. When he dealt with the anaconda, he could control himself well! Why is it like this now?
He slowly walked over to Diego.
“What’s wrong with him?”
Diego and Kayden said in turn.
Enoch unbuttoned the top button of his shirt, then clasped the back of his neck and tilted his head to one side as if in pain.
“You are bleeding.”
Enoch smiled, pointing to Diego’s pretty badly bleeding lips.
Diego seemed to have noticed Enoch’s seizures just then.
Not many people knew about Enoch’s trauma. Only the Emperor, Enoch’s aide, and the Knight Commander Diego, who has a duty to protect the imperial family.
So few people knew the secret, and they had covered it up well by administering a sedative to Enoch.
So it is Diego’s first time seeing the crazy Enoch without a sedative.
“Calm down, Your Highness.”
Feeling strange about Diego’s words, Kayden looked at him once, then turned to Enoch again.
Kayden muttered in confusion.
Enoch’s steps, which had been slow, became fast in an instant. He approached Diego in the blink of an eye, gripping his neck and raising the harpoon high. It happened very fast.
Yuanna’s scream was heard.
I shouted at Enoch, “Enoch, stop it!”
Enoch’s hand, which was about to thrust the harpoon at Diego, stopped.
But that was also for a while. Enoch’s hand holding the harpoon moved slowly again. As expected, it seems that he responded to the control word ‘stop’.
Enoch flinched at the repeated control words, and this time he stopped completely.
For some reason, Diego didn’t avoid him, he just stared at him.
Enoch stood still in the same position for a long time.
But I saw his hand that was strangling Diego’s neck was trembling. He was giving his hand so much strength that there were many veins that could be seen on the back of his hand.
Enoch seemed to hold himself back as much as he could.
I said to him calmly, “You are doing well. You can stop now.”
Enoch finally released his hand from Diego’s neck slowly.
He also slowly lowered his other hand, which was holding the harpoon.
I feel relieved. To release the tension, I applauded and encouraged him in a soft voice.
“That’s right. Well done. Now, let’s stop, hm?”
In the end, Enoch lowered his hands completely. The harpoon in his hand fell to the ground and rolled around.
Enoch, who was blankly looking down at the harpoon rolling on the ground, looked back at me slowly.
The bloody face that had been staring at Diego was completely erased now, and there was only a gentle face.
“I managed to control it. Thanks to you.”
He calmly thanked me. He was back to usual Enoch now. Somehow, my legs lost strength, so I sat down on the ground for a moment.
Enoch still needs me.
‘Someone needs me.’
Though I wish that Enoch can heal his trauma someday, I don’t know why I’m so relieved that he still needs me.
I looked down and took a deep breath. Somehow, it was so quiet, so I gently lifted my head and saw that everyone was looking at Enoch with confused faces.
Then Kayden looked at me and asked, “What the heck just happened?”
After being dazed for a moment, I came to my senses when I heard Kayden’s question.
Then I loaded the flare, pulled the hammer down, and aimed it at Arthdal and Diego.
“The two men over there, raise your hands.”
Arthdal and Diego had confused faces. I waved the flare gun once more as if to urge.
“Raise your hands.”
After hesitating, they finally raised their hands.
“Enoch, Kayden, come here.”
I pointed the flare gun at Prince Arthdal and Diego, and beckoned to Enoch and Kayden. Then they ran to me with bright faces as if they had been waiting.
Enoch immediately grabbed my hand and pulled me away from Yuanna and Archbishop Ruzef. Ruzef looked at me sadly.
“When Enoch sees human blood, he goes crazy. Can you wipe your blood, if you don’t want us all to die together?”
As soon as I finished speaking, Diego hurriedly wiped the blood from his face.
Arthdal looked at Diego with a bewildered face, then glanced at his clean, untouched clothes.
Yuanna kept crossing her arms and just watched the situation with a face that said all the chaos was so much fun.
Kayden asked, “What? You didn’t tell me last time, was that the reason back then?”
I glanced at Enoch’s side face and nodded quietly. After all, the situation is already like this.
“Hey, Enoch, since when? You’ve never had a seizure like that before.”
Arthdal looked at Enoch in disbelief. It was as if he felt betrayed because he didn’t tell him earlier.
“……the post-war effect.”
Enoch answered curtly, still holding my hand.
“Oh, you mean the battle of Romalizan? During the Shinma War?”
Enoch just nodded quietly at Arthdal’s question without saying a word.
