I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 43
Kayden suppressed Arthdal and Yuanna at the same time with monstrous power. Enoch defeated Diego alone.
Indeed, Diego was a human being who could not be easily suppressed by Kayden’s power, so Enoch had no choice but to step in.
“This is why people shouldn’t say kind words. I should have used violence from the beginning.”
I wasted too much time-saving bombs and bullets for nothing.
Ruzef, who was watching the situation with a white face, said,
“But Lord and His Highness the Crown Prince used violence from the beginning. Young Lady also used that magic tool. When have you ever said kind words……”
“This is a forest.”
Ruzef quickly closed his mouth.
Enoch tied the three of them tightly with the rope Kayden had made and led them to the front of the cabin. Arthdal and Diego struggled, but they could not move because Kayden was holding the rope tightly.
“We didn’t want to do this either.”
“I know, right. It was too easy.”
Yuanna replied with a smile. She had a smiling face, but she also looked quite feverish.
“Well, this is the difference in our power, Saintess.”
I responded with a smile to Yuanna’s words.
Of course, Enoch and Kayden did it all.
“I’ll remember this humiliation, Young Lady.”
Arthdal also gritted his teeth, warning me, and glared at Enoch and Kayden. Of course, neither Enoch nor Kayden seemed to listen to him at all.
“I think this is the key.”
Kayden, who was rummaging through Yuanna’s pocket, threw something at me.
It was a large golden key the size of a palm. It looks very old and rusty, but it was clear that it was a key made by melting gold.
“It’s a real key. Where did you get this from?”
Yuanna only smiled at my question and didn’t answer. I looked at her for a moment and said,
“Let’s negotiate again. I don’t know what you’re up to, but I’ll listen to your story and join you if you have a good cause.”
Yuanna looked at me with a surprised face.
She must have thought I wouldn’t cooperate with her even if I died. But now things have changed.
“However, it is you who must persuade those people, Saintess. And I will never serve you. If you don’t like it, we’ll take the key. We’d know the secret of the key if we kept it anyway,” I said, pointing my chin at Arthdal and Diego.
As I put the key in my pocket and put the backpack down, Yuanna and her party looked at me with a puzzled expression.
“This was not in the plan.”
“……I didn’t even expect this.”
In response to Yuanna’s muttering, Arthdal said with an annoyed face.
Yuanna looked at me as if she had made a decision.
“Give me the key and I’ll answer your questions.”
I nodded. Then she opened her mouth.
“We are looking for the ‘door’ that fits the key. The reason I said the more people the better is that we have to explore the whole island. Do you know there are monsters on this island?”
“Yes. There are various monsters.”
“Right. So, if Young Lady and your party can contribute some power, it would be of great help.”
I sighed tiredly as I swept my hair back. Exploring the entire island is also in line with our group’s plan.
“You could have asked me to do that in the first place. Why did you make me mad and say some fxxing bullshit?”
I thought I said calmly, but Kayden, who was surprised next to me, coughed.
“I told you. I think it’s better for me to take the lead.”
In response to Yuanna’s answer, I took out the key from my pocket.
She still shrugged her shoulders with an unconcerned face. She never loses her composure. Is this why she is the female lead?
“Did you see what was written on the key?”
Yuanna asked me. What is written on the key? Bewildered, I looked at the key again.
As she said, [Exit Key] was written on the side of the key in the Langridge Empire language.
The problem was the text below it.
Here, too, there is the word Alea.
But return? It’s a word that means ‘to come back’, but what does this mean?
If I open the door with this key, does it mean that Alea is there, that Alea returns to the island again, or that the doorkeeper guarding the escape gate was Alea?
I don’t know if this name was correct in the first place. Who the hell is Alea?
“Exit key? What exit key? What’s this?”
Kayden glanced at the key in my hand and tilted his head. Enoch also had a puzzled look on his face.
“It’s an exit key. I don’t know what kind of island this is.”
Arthdal, who had been silent all this time, sighed as he heard Enoch’s muttering.
He said, “I’m pretty sure we have to explore the whole island no matter what. We’re not even sure if this was the key to getting off the island in the first place. That’s just our guess.”
After hearing Arthda, I looked at them and asked Yuanna again.
“Saintess, where did you get the key?”
“I picked it up.”
“When I first woke up on this island, it was beside me.”
“It’s very suspicious.’
“Isn’t that the same as you holding that suspicious magic tool, Young Lady?”
That’s right. Strangely, I keep understanding what Yuanna said.
If this is really the key to the ‘door’ that appears in the novel, it was clear that it would be advantageous to escape with them.
I looked back at Enoch, Kayden, and Ruzef for a moment. It is unknown what variables will arise if they stay with Yuanna.
Is it really right to take them and stay with Yuanna? Shouldn’t I run away? If everyone stays together, will the story go on like in the original?
I narrowed my eyebrows and pondered over and over again, then I asked Yuanna again,
“Do you know anything else? What did you find out about this island?”
“No. That’s why we’re going to explore the island.”
At Yuanna’s answer, I bit my lower lip and pondered.
What is clear is that even if I run away, I cannot escape without this key.
Besides, I don’t even know where the escape gate is, so wouldn’t it be better to find a clue to the key next to Yuanna?
After thinking for a while, I finally nodded.
“Okay. Let’s stay together until it’s proven that the key is really the ‘exit key’, find out where the exit is, and all the clues are solved. To be precise, we’re monitoring you. Don’t even think about stealing things.”
I pointed my finger at my eyes, indicating that I would watch, and then I pointed at Yuanna’s.
Of course, she smiled brightly as if it was okay. It was a graceful smile as if the red flower buds were bursting into full bloom.
On the other hand, Arthdal and Diego’s faces are horribly distorted.
“Hey, Saintess. I do not understand your decision.”
I pointed at Arthdal with my chin and said to Yuanna,
“I told you, right? It’s up to you to persuade those people.”
At my words, Yuanna looked at Arthdal once.
“I think the more people, the better. To be honest, it was a little difficult for us to survive on our own. Does anyone have any objections?”
At Yuanna’s question, Arthdal paused for a moment. He avoided her gaze and remained silent with an uncomfortable face.
It was very surprising that the Prince of Hestia Kingdom could look so childish.
Seeing that Diego was also looking at Yuanna and keeping his mouth closed, it seems that something happened between the three of them.
“It was a little difficult for us to survive on our own.”
Somehow, from Yuanna’s words, I remembered how Ruzef couldn’t even eat properly.
“……do as you will, Saintess.”
In the end, Arthdal gave a positive answer.
So, in the end, we declared a truce and decided to stay together in the cabin for a while and find a way to escape.
Of course, I didn’t unpack all my luggage in the cabin. We’re just staying together temporarily, and we’ll leave as soon as the clue about the key is solved.
‘Besides, Yuanna is so suspicious. I have to keep an eye on her.’
Could it be that she is Alea?
Moreover, Yuanna didn’t seem to have given up her desire to take the lead in the group yet.
