I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 52
“Why are you so obsessed with taking the lead between us?”
That was still a question.
When something had to be decided, we held a meeting, and Yuanna often voiced her opinion.
The reason was not that she was taking the lead, but because she had special information about the key.
“It’s fun to sit on the heads of nobles.”
[T/N: to lead the nobles at will]
That’s a very direct answer. You don’t have to be so honest about it.
As always, Yuanna had a smiling face. So I don’t know what she’s really thinking.
What do you mean it’s fun to sit on the heads of nobles? Margaret was a noblewoman, but as a modern person, I thought I could understand those words to some extent.
“That’s right. I’m a commoner, so I don’t like nobles.”
Perhaps noticing my subtle expression, Yuanna nodded and admitted. Everyone lost what to say and remained silent.
Kayden, who had been standing next to me and yawning for a while, hugged me.
“Margaret, stop, and let’s take a bath together since we found soap.”
“Stop saying nonsense and go away.”
As I pushed Kayden’s shoulder, Ruzef and Enoch simultaneously grabbed Kayden’s arms and pulled him away from me.
Yuanna, who was watching it quietly, offered to me, “Young Lady, would you like to take a bath with me then?”
I glanced at Diego for a moment.
“Oh, but I’m a little worried. I wonder if some pervert will steal my dress again while taking a bath……”
“Oh, I won’t!”
When Diego shouted in embarrassment, Yuanna and I burst into laughter at the same time.
I thought it would be difficult to get along with Yuanna because of our very different thoughts and temperaments, but our woman-to-woman bond was quite strong.
I winked at Yuanna and pointed out outside the cabin.
“Shall we go?”
Yuanna nodded vigorously.
It was very refreshing and nice to wash my body with soap after a long time.
Everyone also hummed and seemed to have gotten better.
Diego went to get firewood, and Archbishop Ruzef decided to collect fruits and mushrooms.
Yuanna was in charge of cleaning up the cabin and preparing meals, and Kayden decided to stay in the cabin to protect the luggage. Because Diego and Crown Prince Arthdal can’t be trusted.
So naturally, Enoch and I decided to go hunting and explore the surroundings. Then Arthdal looked at me in disbelief.
“Does Young Lady Flonè even hunt?”
Arthdal pointed a finger at me as I hung a harpoon on my waist.
“Why don’t you stay still? You’re helping by just staying still.”
You’re the one doing nothing. At Arthdal’s words, Enoch, Kayden, and Archbishop Ruzef all turned to him.
“……just what did our great Crown Prince do?”
When Kayden asked, Ruzef replied as if he was in trouble.
“I wonder if Margaret will get him some food or something.”
Enoch’s sarcasm reached its climax.
Arthdal’s face distorted. Then he stepped to this side and was caught by Yuanna.
“Your Highness. Are you going to keep doing that? You said you would help me.”
Arthdal stopped at Yuanna’s annoyed murmur. Soon he held back his anger and sighed.
“What do you need, Saintess?”
He asked in a friendly voice and approached Yuanna.
“Why are these two men so desperate for me? I think they’re doing it because they feel sorry.”
While taking a bath with Yuanna, I asked why they were doing that, but she didn’t explain more.
Well, just like how I lived with Enoch and Kayden and crossed the line of life and death, they must have had their own situation.
I put a flare gun filled with bullets in my dress pocket and held a wooden knife in my hand. It was to trim the fish on the spot.
I thought about bringing a grenade, but I already had a flare gun, so I decided to leave it. There are only a few grenades left after being used to kill the anacondas. So, I should keep it whenever possible.
After leaving the cabin, we decided to start exploring the surroundings. Because we have to explore to find a place to hunt.
Enoch was at the forefront, cutting down the thickets blocking the way with his sword and moving forward.
I asked carefully, “Being with those people…… although it’s necessary because of the key…… it’ll be okay, right?”
So far, Yuanna didn’t seem to be planning anything suspicious. Also, after going to the place where she said she picked up the key and understanding the circumstances that led to Yuanna picking up the key, I might be able to make a decision.
Enoch glanced back at me.
“Well. Don’t think too deeply.”
“I have to think. It’s a matter of life.”
“……I always think that you seem to have a very strong attachment to life.”
At Enoch’s question, I felt guilty and avoided his gaze. I think I’ve said too much about ‘life’.
Enoch took the lead again and walked.
“Rather than an attachment to life, I don’t want to die in this kind of place. Isn’t Enoch too?”
Enoch did not answer my question. Maybe he was thinking of the right answer.
After being silent for a long time, he suddenly stopped and looked back at me. I stopped after him and looked up at him with my eyes wide open.
Beautiful black hair as if it had captured the night sky caught my eyes. Then, I could see far-deep golden eyes looking at me.
The seductive lips like a painting under his nose slowly opened.
“……I have no regrets in life. But, because of you, I have a problem with my life and I am in trouble now.”
He put his hand close to my cheek slowly.
He reached out and stroked my hair. I held my breath, unable to move as my gaze fell on his deep, burning eyes.
“Margaret, you…… you have something that drives people crazy.”
Still looking at me, Enoch said, “As I said before, I can’t live without you, Margaret.”
Enoch bowed his head slowly toward me. He rested his forehead on mine. Then he sighed.
“I thought you were too.”
A perfect and beautiful face like a sculpture was in front of me. The beautiful collarbone and broad, hard shoulders, visible through the collar of the shirt, went up and down for a while due to the tense breathing.
What do you mean, ‘I thought you were too?’ I wondered why are you being so intimate, and now I know.
It seems that Enoch still thinks of me as Margaret who likes him madly.
“Have you changed your mind?”
Golden eyes stared at me with a confused gaze.
“Am I not good enough for you?”
“It’s not like that.”
“If it’s not like that……”
He stared at me coldly in an instant. I felt goosebumps all over my body at his gaze without any warmth.
“Give me some confidence, Margaret. Huh? Please.”
For a moment, I was overwhelmed by the eerie expression on his face.
I did not know that Enoch would say such a thing. Are you so anxious? Are you afraid that I will leave?
‘What should I say……’
After pondering for a long time, I answered in a calm voice.
“I did not think that Enoch was lacking. If I could only be with one person on this island, it would be you, Enoch.”
This statement is true without a single lie. I trusted Enoch that much.
At my words, Enoch made an offer to me as if he had been waiting.
“Then why don’t the two of us just leave? Like when we first woke up on this island.”
Like a man who entices a child by giving candy, he convinces me.
Enoch tilted his head and looked intently at my face. Our eyes met.
