I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 49
Margaret scratched her cheek with a difficult face in response.
“Well…… we’re the only ones here, so you don’t have to manage your image.”
Hearing her answer, Ruzef asked her with a puzzled face.
“Is that all?”
She just blinked her eyes in confusion.
“Well, you don’t blame or comfort me……”
“Oh…… don’t you just need someone to listen to you?”
Ruzef was at a loss for words at her question, and only his lips twitched. She’s right. Actually, he wasn’t expecting her to react.
Seeing his expression, she shrugged with a regretful face.
“And I’m not good at empathizing.”
“People who are truly empathetic don’t even realize they are.”
“Is that so?”
Margaret laughed awkwardly.
However, Ruzef thought this was better than giving advice in vague words. He just wanted to tell someone his heart.
However, he didn’t expect that the person he confessed his innermost thoughts to was Margaret Rose Floné, whom he despised so much.
“The Young Lady of Floné I saw in the Holy See and here. Which one is the real you?”
Ruzef suddenly asked such a question.
Margaret seemed a little perplexed at the sudden question. She looked at his face for a while, and then she smiled sadly.
“……your question is weird. Both are me. I decided to accept what I did in the past.”
She slowly looks up at the sky. Ruzef also naturally followed her and looked up at the sky.
“Otherwise, we will not be able to move forward.”
Starlight in the night sky was flowing like a waterfall.
Yeah. Perhaps like those flowing stars, his heart is melting now.
If the way she is now is her, Ruzef would have no choice but to like her.
Her sincerity slowly permeated into his mind. Ruzef wanted to capture this moment deep in his head.
“It seems that you really have become a different person, Young Lady.”
He now admitted that she had changed and determined to trust her.
“Young Lady, I believe in you from now on……”
“Wait a second.”
And just as he was about to say it, she raised her finger and blocked his lips. Looking nervous, she glared over the forest and this time put her index finger to her own lips.
Ruzef held his breath and bit his lip without realizing it.
“Lower your body. Slowly.”
She raised her hand and slowly pressed him down. Ruzef tilted his head, not understanding what she was saying.
Margaret glanced at him and sighed, then she grabbed his shoulder and pushed him behind her back.
Margaret’s body leaned over his shoulder, with his back to the wooden deck.
“It seems like a monster is passing by. Be quiet for a moment.”
She leaned her body, raised her head, and whispered. Her breath tickled his ear.
Ruzef suddenly became feverish and his cheeks turned red. It was the first time he had such close contact with a woman, so he unknowingly tensed up and gave strength to his body.
On the other hand, Margaret focused all her nerves on the forest.
“……it seems it has passed, but let’s stay like this for a little while. Just in case.”
It was a resolute voice. Feeling the pressure to obey her, Ruzef responded by silently and vigorously nodding his head.
Because as soon as he opened his mouth, he had a useless worry that his beating heart would burst out of his mouth.
After holding his breath for a while, Margaret moved away from him. Ruzef felt somewhat empty as he watched her move away from him. His heart was still beating fast.
“It was uncomfortable, right? I’m sorry. I was surprised too.”
Margaret looked at him and apologized. Ruzef looked at her confident face with a dazed look, then shook his head hard.
“It was not uncomfortable at all.”
“That’s a relief. I didn’t think monsters would come all the way here. It’s late anyway, so it’s dangerous to stay outside. Let’s go inside.”
She stood up and held out her hand to him with a smile.
Ruzef looked at the hand outstretched to him and then looked at Margaret’s face again. As if Margaret didn’t understand what he was doing, she tilted her head with a confused look.
Ruzef quietly took her hand.
She was a good person.
“I believe in you, Young Lady.”
He continued, “I also believe that Young Lady will get us off this island.”
He would do anything for her. Such a strong conviction arose in Ruzef’s heart.
At his words, Margaret had a very confused expression on her face. Ruzef only laughed for a moment in the dark moonlit night.
It was a beautiful night.
12. A Group Life That’s Not Even Worth Living
“I believe in you, Young Lady. I also believe that Young Lady will get us off this island.”
I couldn’t get a good night’s sleep because of what Ruzef said last night.
What the hell kind of misunderstanding did you have that you made such a statement?
Besides, wasn’t Ruzef a picky man who continued to doubt me like Arthdal?
‘No, dammit, I was too busy escaping alone, why should I bring everyone along too?’
Crazy. Do you really think of me as the leader?
As I was thinking about various things with a complicated mind, the day dawned and it was morning.
Early in the morning, on my way to the valley, I ran into Enoch and Kayden in front of the cabin.
“Where are you going?”
I shrugged and answered Kayden’s question.
“There’s a valley nearby. I just did some scouting. Where are you two going?”
“To get breakfast. Shall we go together?”
At Kayden’s question, I nodded and brought a basket and a wooden knife to collect mushrooms.
As we were collecting mushrooms near the cabin together, I sighed.
“Why are you sighing like that in the morning?”
Kayden, who came out with me to collect mushrooms, looked at me and asked. I looked back at him while putting the mushrooms in a wooden basket.
“No, just…… will we ever be able to get off this island?”
At my question, Kayden looked at me with a face I didn’t know what he was thinking.
“How can you not know that?”
Kayden crossed his arms and scolded me as if I said something funny. Hearing his words, I frowned and tilted my head. What are you talking about?
‘No way, do you also think of me as the leader?’
Feeling tired for a moment, I looked at him and opened my mouth, then closed it again. Now I’m too lazy to explain.
Kayden’s attitude is actually a bit confusing. I don’t know if he really likes me or not.
There were times when his gaze looked suspicious.
‘Is it because you can’t control your emotions without the earrings?’
It was then.
Someone pulled my shoulders back.
His hard chest touched my back. Thick arms stretched out from behind gently wrapped around my shoulders.
It was Enoch.
“I’m here to help.”
Kayden, who was facing him, looked annoyed and raised both hands.
I turned my back and looked at Enoch’s worried face.
“Don’t go around alone, stay by my side. Because sometimes people are more dangerous than monsters.”
Enoch muttered as he stared at Kayden.
When there are enemies, they work together well, but when we are together, they are wary of each other again.
Basically, Enoch hated and was wary of everyone except me.
Thanks for excluding me from the standard of hate and vigilance, but for now, we must not be too hostile towards each other.
It would be catastrophic if a riot broke out in a cramped cabin.
“It’s okay. Now that I’ve picked all the mushrooms, shall we go back?”
I said, showing the wooden basket I was holding toward Enoch.
As we were all going back together, I noticed something white shining beneath my feet.
“Huh……? What is this?”
It looked like a small egg the size of a finger.
