I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 53
What? Are you really trying to seduce me?
But for that matter, he had a rather dry expression because his emotions were not well expressed.
I sighed and answered, “That’s a good idea. Have you forgotten the reason why I have to be here? It’s because of the key the Saintess has. Either digging up the information or taking away the key. I have to do one of the two.”
Enoch burst into laughter with a straight face. He straightened up and shook his head as if he couldn’t help it anymore.
“You really only know about survival.”
“It would be better to hunt quickly before the sun goes down.”
Then, I pretended to be calm and looked around. I turned again to Enoch and asked, “There is a valley, let’s go fish hunting, hm?”
Enoch nodded reluctantly and turned away.
Not far from the hut was the valley where we bathed.
Since the water is not flowing calmly, it was better to hunt with a harpoon, a trap, or a net rather than a fishing rod.
Fortunately, Enoch and I had been hunting with harpoons so far, so catching freshwater fish was not that difficult.
In fact, Enoch was also good at hunting. It’s the first time I’ve seen him hunting in person, but I’m not sure what this man can’t do.
First, I cleaned the blood of the fish that Enoch had caught, trimmed them simply, twisted them on a tree trunk, and hung them on a harpoon.
“I’m going to go fish hunting only today and make a trap for catching land animals tomorrow.”
I have to ask Kayden to make a bow too. If it was Kayden, he would make anything at once, so he will surely be able to make bows and arrows without difficulty.
After not answering my words for a while, Enoch said, “Tomorrow, Lord and I will go hunting, so you get some rest.”
“How can I do that while everyone is busy?”
Doesn’t everyone have their own role?
“Margaret, you can. You’ve worked hard until now.”
Enoch stroked my hair gently.
“Don’t run away because you’re having a hard time. Take a rest.”
I did not answer Enoch. When I heard ‘Don’t run away’, I felt my body stiffen up somehow, so I broke out in cold sweat.
I was told to rest comfortably, but I think it would be better for me to do my part as much as possible.
I am not the one who holds the key to this novel and has the right to receive all the favors of the male leads, but Yuanna.
It’s not that I haven’t been to group life, but I’ve always had a hard time getting along with people. I was used to living alone, and it was the same when I came out to society.
In other words, I’m not good at taking care of others, helping others, or suppressing my moods to keep the group life running smoothly.
“Hey, Young Lady. Aren’t you sharing too little? Why don’t you add some more?”
While I was preparing fish in the kitchen, Arthdal, who had been idling until now, approached me and constantly nagged me.
I eventually got annoyed and stuck the stone knife into the kitchen table.
Arthdal was startled and took two steps back from me. Even Kayden and Ruzef, who were sitting in the living room and fighting for an unknown reason, were surprised and turned to look at me.
I sighed and looked at Arthdal. As expected, group life doesn’t suit me.
“If you don’t want to starve, get out of my way.”
Arthdal blinked his eyes and looked at me blankly, then later pointed to himself with his finger.
“Young Lady, did you just say that to me?”
I pulled out the stone knife stuck on the table and nodded.
“Do you want me to say it again?”
I thrust the stone knife down into the wooden table more strongly than before.
With the sound of the wooden table cracking, the stone knife pierced deeply into the table.
“Get out of my way.”
With a bewildered face at my words, Arthdal looked at the stone knife and my face in turn and slowly stepped back.
Then he scratched the back of his head.
“After all, isn’t this the food that Enoch got? I don’t know why Young Lady is showing off so much.”
Arthdal went to the living room while talking like that.
It’s a childish thing to say, but I caught more fish than Enoch in the first place. And I have never shown off.
Arthdal went out to the living room and looked back at me in the kitchen and smiled.
“Young Lady Floné, let me give you some advice. If you continue to behave like that, we can’t stay with you.”
Apparently, Enoch wasn’t in the hut now. Because he went on reconnaissance.
Kayden and Ruzef were still holding each other’s collars and staring blankly at Arthdal.
Diego didn’t care at all about Arthdal’s behavior. As if all he could see was Yuanna, he was helping her light the fireplace.
In the first place, Diego was only included in the group because of Yuanna, and is basically Enoch’s person, not Arthdal’s.
“That son of a bxtch……”
Kayden spat out a swear word. Just as he was about to swear again, I hurriedly changed the topic.
“I think it would be better to go out with one of your team and one of mine for food in the future.”
Arthdal looked back at me with a face that he did not understand what I was saying. Even Diego and Yuanna, who were quietly making a fire, looked at me.
“You said that group life is important. So we have to work together fairly.”
“Hold on, hold on. I think I heard it wrong. Young Lady Floné, did you tell me to get some food now?”
At Arthdal’s words, I burst into laughter.
“Are there any other people who do not have to look for food here? I see you keep forgetting it, but I am the daughter of the Duke of Floné.”
The Floné family had great power in the Langridge Empire. That means that it has great power even in the countries that the Langridge Empire interacted with.
When I brought the family’s name into the conversation, Arthdal immediately shut up. Looks like he realized his mistake too late.
Anyway, two months have already passed since I woke up on a remote island, and I don’t know how much longer I will be staying on this island. Because we have not yet found a way to escape.
In other words, in order to survive, you have to give up your status, face, and everything.
“Anyway, you’ve always worked hard.”
Yuanna gave Arthdal a pathetic look.
“If you don’t like it, we don’t have to share food.”
I folded my arms and glared at Arthdal. He seemed bewildered by my attitude.
All of the characters in the novel 《Things More Important Than Survival》 know Margaret except Yuanna. It’s the same with Arthdal.
It was because Margaret had a wide reputation and a large radius of action as well as her notoriety.
Four years ago, when Margaret turned eighteen, she went to the Hestia Kingdom to study abroad for about half a year. She met Arthdal for a while at that time.
So, when it comes to the true nature of Margaret, Arthdal must know as well as other male leads.
“Young Lady Floné, are you confident that you won’t regret those words if you leave the island?”
Arthdal frowned and warned me.
As he said, after escaping, I might regret this.
“If I die before I leave the island, I will have no regrets.”
As if there was nothing to say in response to my reply, Arthdal kept his mouth shut without answering any further.
“Why waste time talking to him?”
Kayden, who approached me, sighed and helped me prepare the fish.
Arthdal raised both his hands as if he couldn’t believe what he just heard. While looking at me and Kayden, he sighed and stroked his chest.
“No one is on my side.”
At his lamentation, Yuanna clicked her tongue.
“Do you think there will be?”
“Everyone is on the side of Young Lady Floné. I think my heart hurts a little, so I need to rest.”
Arthdal pretended to wipe the tears that did not flow like a person who had been heartbroken.
Then he went up to the second floor without answering the offer to split the team and take turns looking for food.
Ruzef, who was watching, slowly approached me and looked at my complexion.
“Don’t worry too much. Whatever Young Lady says, Arthdal won’t believe it anyway.”
Ruzef’s words reminded me of the person called Crown Prince Arthdal again.
‘Arthdal is so different from Enoch.’
Arthdal was noble from birth. If Enoch was an imperial family that started from the bottom and came up, Arthdal was the royal family that was at the top of the pyramid from the beginning.
He was arrogant without ever being defeated and was a man who had lived knowing that it was how he was supposed to live.
“Perhaps, he won’t be able to admit that Young Lady has changed.”
Ruzef explained to me in an unusually friendly and calm voice, as if to soothe a child.
