I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 44
In a strange atmosphere, we decided to look around the hut together.
The hut was built in a two-story structure. On the first floor, there was a large living room and kitchen with a fireplace, and on the second floor, there were two rooms with wooden beds.
In the original story, Yuanna seems to have guessed that it was a hut built by a person who lived on this remote island. My guess was no different.
I looked around the hut first with Enoch, Kayden, and Archbishop Ruzef.
After we finished our search, we went back down to the first floor, and then Yuanna and her party moved around the hut.
After looking around every corner of the hut, I had a question.
I must have heard that the hut also had modern clothes, but strangely, there were no clothes at all. There seemed to be nothing more than the sneakers that Kayden brought with him earlier.
‘This is different from the original. Or is my memory wrong?’
I sat down in the living room on the first floor, deep in thought, and opened the backpack I had picked up in front of the hut.
It was the backpack that was laid out neatly as if someone had forgotten to carry it and left it.
Enoch approached me and said, “What a strange-looking bag.”
Kayden also sat casually in front of me and glanced at the backpack with a curious expression. He glanced at the scabbard on Enoch’s waist and asked,
“Isn’t the sword that the Crown Prince used from that bag? What else is in it?”
Archbishop Ruzef, who was hesitant, also came up with a first aid kit in his hands and crouched next to me.
“I’m curious, too. What’s in there?”
I shrugged and slipped my hand into the backpack and rummaged through it.
“This is a dagger.”
“Give it to me. I’ll use it.”
Kayden’s eyes twinkled as he held out his hand to me.
He was a wizard who used his brain, but he also had tremendous power. Therefore, this dagger would suit him better than the long sword given to Enoch.
Without hesitation, I put down the dagger in his hand. While Kayden took the dagger with a happy face, I rummaged through the backpack again.
The next thing that came out was a compass.
Enoch looked at what was in my hand and asked, “Compass?”
Compass also existed in the Langridge Empire, but it was a modern compass made of stainless steel.
In addition, this compass had a luminous hour hand, so it seemed like it could be used at night. Seeing that the needle is well attached to the central axis, it seems to work well.
“I’d better keep this one.”
I looked inside the backpack again with the compass in my hand. The last thing that came out was a small crossbody bag.
‘It’s a crossbody bag.’
I took out the crossbody bag and stuffed my compass, flare gun, and pocket of bullets inside, then slung it over my shoulder. I gave the big backpack to Kayden.
Kayden put household items in it, such as a wooden knife and a rope made from twisted branches.
“Do I have nothing?”
Ruzef, who was quietly looking at us, asked me. I pointed to the first-aid kit in his hands and said,
“Archbishop, please carry the first-aid kit with you.”
I already had a lot of luggage, so I need someone to carry the first aid kit.
“What, you’re leaving the medicine box to Ddaggari? Isn’t it dangerous?”
“I agree with Lord, Margaret. I think it would be better to bring the medicine box in turn.”
Not believing Ruzef, Enoch and Kayden protested against me. But I couldn’t find any other choice. We lack hands, and each has an effective role.
Also, Ruzef was a priest who had learned treatment and healing, so he was perfect for this mission.
“In fact, even if we combine everything we have so far, they are less important than that.”
I made a request to Ruzef with a serious face,
“You can throw away the sword, but you can’t throw away this medicine box. Do you know what I mean?”
At my words, Ruzef looked at Enoch and Kayden with a bewildered look, then nodded enthusiastically.
“Leave it to me.”
The spirit that radiated from his expression was like the spirit of a general going to war.
Next, I separated the regular medicines from the first aid kit and shared them with Enoch and Kayden.
“Is this enough?”
Enoch and Kayden looked dissatisfied, but they closed their mouths without saying any more.
And then, suddenly, Yuanna’s voice was heard.
“Sir Diego, can’t you walk a little more gently? I keep waking up.”
I turned my head slightly, then saw Yuanna sleeping on Diego’s back.
It was already getting dark, so everyone seemed to be organizing their luggage and making their beds.
‘You’re going to sleep like that?’
Diego, who was quietly carrying her on his back and pacing around in the hut, also looked very strange.
‘I really don’t want to get involved with them.’
I looked at them and shook my head. I don’t know why Yuanna is so obsessed with receiving other people’s attention.
Prince Arthdal was still annoying, but he couldn’t approach me easily.
This is because Kayden stuck close to me like a puppy guarding the house and growled whenever he approached.
Kayden, sat right next to me as he watched me organize the backpack, said,
“Margaret, you are like the great king of the island.”
I looked at him in surprise.
“Have you ever seen an undignified king?”
“What is the importance of dignity? You are already our king.”
Is this a new kind of bullshit?
At that time, Ruzef, who was constantly looking for the right time to speak, finally said,
“Since it’s too long, why don’t we call it shorter? How about the island king? That would be perfect.”
Oh, for goodness sake!
I’d rather grizzly bear.
“Island Demon King……!”
Ruzef bit his lip just then, and Kayden, who had been holding back his laughter with a bright red face, burst into laughter.
I’m pretty sure he said that to make fun of me.
For now, we decided to postpone the meeting to discuss the key that Yuanna had for a while.
It was because the sun was setting and there was not enough time to prepare a place to sleep and eat.
Except for Archbishop Ruzef, who is purifying the water, the rest decided to collect edible fruits.
Seeing Ruzef purifying water while sitting in front of the hut, Arthdal had an astonished expression.
“Where did you learn to purify water, Archbishop? I didn’t know you could do this.”
At Arthdal’s question, Ruzef looked at me.
“I learned it from the Young Lady Floné.”
The eyes of Arthdal, Diego, and Yuanna were fixed on me. Arthdal, who made eye contact with me, smiled and looked back at Ruzef.
“Do you think I would believe that?”
At Arthdal’s response, Ruzef shrugged with an indifferent face.
Yuanna said, smiling at me, “Young Lady is so smart. I know it.”
Her smile was somehow ominous, so I turned my gaze away from her and grabbed a basket and joined Enoch and Kayden.
“Aren’t you going?”
As if Arthdal didn’t understand my question, he looked at me, Enoch, and Kayden alternately, and finally sighed and picked up the coconut basket.
Fortunately, there was plenty to eat near the hut, so things like raspberries and edible mushrooms were easy to find.
I collected ox tongue mushrooms that grow on oak trees.
Looking for mushrooms in this unfamiliar wilderness had to be very careful. This is because there are many cases where it looks like a familiar mushroom, but it is not.
However, I had some expertise in mushrooms, so I carefully picked out what was edible.
As if he had never seen a mushroom, Arthdal pointed to the mushroom I was digging as if seeing a strange thing.
“You’re going to eat this? No matter how hungry you are, don’t eat what you don’t know. I’m increasingly doubting whether you are really a noble lady.”
It deserves to be considered strange. Because he, the noblest in his ranks, only saw mushrooms that had been cut into small pieces and cooked.
I nodded as I cut off the root of the mushroom with a wooden knife and put it in the crossbody bag.
“It’s a mushroom. It doesn’t taste bad. It’s similar to the texture of meat.”
“Does it make sense that it tastes like meat? Hmm…… come to think of it, I have a problem, too, since I’m listening seriously to the crazy Young Lady. Haha!”
I stabbed the wooden knife I was holding into the oak tree. Arthdal took a step away from me with a startled face.
I was annoyed by Arthdal, who was arguing with everything, but I just gritted my teeth when I belatedly remembered that he was still a Crown Prince.
Be patient, be patient.
“It was because my hand slipped.”
I muttered, pulling the wooden knife out of the tree.
“It’s because you keep interrupting me that I lost concentration. If I make a slight mistake, I might stab your arm. I am sorry.”
I apologized to him with an indifferent face and turned away.
Arthdal frowned with a shocked face, but it’s not my business.
Kayden burst out laughing as he watched us from the other side.
“Pu ha ha ha!”
From a distance, Enoch is also seen collecting fruits with a grin.
