I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 42
Arthdal, who was watching the sight, asked in frustration, “I remember that you clearly hated the Young Lady of Floné back in the Empire, but what kind of strange sight is this?”
I understand that Arthdal was taken aback. I’m also completely unfamiliar with the fact that a crazy male lead named Kayden has this attitude.
“That bastard is really talkative.”
Without looking at Arthdal, Kayden quipped at him.
“How many lives do you have? Why are you behaving like that to the Crown Prince? What if I manage to leave this island?”
Even if he has a strange nickname like Prince Cheekydal, first of all, he’s a prince.
“What is he talking about?”
“Leave the cabin. We’re not standing still because we can’t fight back.”
Crown Prince Arthdal said to us with a tired face.
We, who have a flare gun and grenades, are far superior, but that doesn’t mean we can take them lightly. We are at a disadvantage in terms of numbers because Ruzef has joined their team.
As I glanced at Ruzef, I realized that he was holding my first-aid kit.
‘Wait…… why is the first-aid kit with him?’
It seems that Ruzef brought it without realizing it.
In fact, the first aid kit was more important than the flare gun for surviving on this island. It was because all the medicines for wound disinfection and treatment were in that medicine box. So I had to get it back.
I must not look suspicious in front of Prince Arthdal. The basis of negotiation is not to show weakness to the other party.
I quickly hid my nervous expression. And with a calm face, I said to Arthdal, “Let the Archbishop Ruzef come here, then I’ll leave the cabin.”
I deliberately spoke as if my purpose was Ruzef.
Ruzef looked at me with his eyes filled with emotion, not realizing that I was trying to get the first aid kit back. Looking at him again, my conscience hurts.
“I refuse,” Arthdal crossed his arms and smiled proudly.
Kayden said angrily, “You think you are in a position to refuse? Just so you know, we can take the cabin without even negotiating.”
“Lord, be still. That kind of attitude doesn’t help at all.”
Enoch, who was watching the situation silently, warned Kayden. Kayden belatedly looked at me and bit his lip.
“If you’re not going to join us, just leave quickly. Haven’t you got enough to bring? You want to loot more here?”
Yuanna spoke confidently with a smile on her face.
I raised my chin and laughed as if provoking them.
“Looting is a word that only applies if you own something. If an object does not have an owner, it should be owned by someone who is capable of possessing it.”
At my words, Kayden let out an exclamation that didn’t fit the situation.
“Won’t you let Archbishop Ruzef come here?”
I asked again. Arthdal looked at me for a moment and then talked with Diego and Yuanna.
Ruzef stood away from them, looking sadly at us and them in turn.
“Or I can just burn it.”
I aimed the flare gun at the cabin.
“Actually, we don’t really need the cabin since we know how to make it. But I think you will need it.”
Finally, Arthdal raised his hands.
“Okay. You can take the Archbishop.”
Ruzef glared at Arthdal.
Despite his desire to join our party, it seems he doesn’t like Arthdal to let him go without any regrets.
Yeah, it might hurt his feelings. There must be something called a bond that is built during their time together.
Arthdal apologized to Ruzef, but he didn’t look sorry at all.
Eventually, Ruzef completely returned to us.
“Before I leave, I have a question for you, Saintess.”
Yuanna smiled brightly as if she was waiting for my question.
“Finally, you are thinking of serving me—”
“Do you have the exit key now? Where did you get the key? Is there a way out on this island that can be opened with that key?”
I cut off Yuanna’s nonsense by asking lots of questions.
Enoch and Kayden, not knowing that I had a conversation with Yuanna earlier, looked at me in bewilderment.
Yuanna patted her chin with a thoughtful expression.
Yuanna asked, “Will you stay with me?”
“That’s too bad. I like you because you are a maniac, Young Lady.”
So you’re out of your mind, too.
“If you don’t want to stay with me, I have no obligation to answer your questions. You’re not even mine.”
That’s right. But there’s no key in the original work, so I have to check it.
In the original novel, it was only told that the door to escape from this island would open after one year, but it didn’t say that you had to use a key to open it.
Even if I find the ‘door’, will I only be able to escape if I have the key?
‘If that’s the case, isn’t Yuanna the most suspicious here?’
Arthdal and his party showed no sign of surprise as if they already knew about the key.
“I think you need to explain. What do you mean by a key?”
Enoch looked at Yuanna with a displeased face. But Yuanna just smiled without any agitation.
Instead, she said to me, “I told you. I’m not going to tell you if you are not mine.”
Enoch looked back at me.
Then Kayden and Ruzef looked at me at the same time. The gazes of those asking for opinions were a little burdensome.
“What are you going to do, Margaret?”
“I will follow your decision.”
“I will follow you, too.”
Enoch, Kayden, and Ruzef spoke in turn.
‘It’s getting more burdensome.’
I pondered for a moment and shook my head.
I need information about the ‘key’ that Yuanna has.
I don’t know why she wants me with her. I don’t know what she’s planning. But the more people, the better.
If so, will all problems be solved if I only serve Yuanna? There’s no need to fight over the cabin, too.
“Hey, Saintess. I don’t want to sit idly by and cooperate with them. Tell her to give everything she has if she and her party want to be with us.”
Arthdal told Yuanna. Then Yuanna laughed as if what Arthdal said was obvious.
“Of course, if we’re together, that’s all ours.”
Are you a robber?
I looked at Yuanna, Arthdal, and Diego who were standing with their backs to the forest.
There was a large rock at a distant location. It was so far away that no one would be hurt even if it was blown up.
I took a grenade, no, a firebomb, out of my pocket. Kayden and Ruzef looked at me in surprise.
“Hey, calm down.”
Ruzef, whose face was pale, tried to stop me. I glanced at Enoch.
“Do you know what I’m trying to do?”
Enoch nodded slowly in response to my question, and Kayden next to him smiled as if he understood.
Only Ruzef blinked in confusion while holding the first aid kid with a pale face.
‘I must not fail.’
I bit the safety pin of the bomb with my teeth and turned my arms for a while to warm up. Then, after getting into position, I threw the firebomb I was holding toward the rock.
“Enoch, Kayden, now!”
The bomb hit the rock.
While Yuanna and her party turned their heads towards the rock in surprise, a thick layer of dust covered them, Enoch and Kayden swiftly moved to their respective positions.
“Let go of me!”
Through the dust, Arthdal and Yuanna’s voices could be heard.
Yuanna and her party, who had been on guard for a brief moment, were defeated so quickly that it was too bland.
What? Why were they defeated so easily?
