I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 55
In fact, the most suspicious of those gathered in the hut was Margaret rather than the Saintess who had a key.
She knew how to use magic tools I had never seen before, and as a noble lady, she was too good at surviving in wild.
She was so different from the Margaret that Enoch knew. As if someone else had possessed her.
“Enoch, are you okay?”
At Margaret’s call, Enoch quietly raised his head.
Her blue eyes, as bright as jewels, caught his eye. Margaret was looking at him with a face full of concern.
“You don’t like duck meat.”
Only his aide and chef know that he doesn’t like duck meat.
When I stayed with Margaret in the cave, I forced myself to eat because there was nothing to eat, but I never made it obvious.
But how did Margaret…….
Was it because she had changed like a different person? While on the island, I sometimes forgot about it. That Margaret was a woman who was obsessed with me.
“There’s really nothing you don’t know about me.”
“There’s nothing I don’t know about Your Highness.”
Margaret responded skillfully.
Enoch held his chin as if he was in trouble and stared at her.
He didn’t know at all what was on her mind.
She knows everything about him and takes good care of him, it seems that it’s because the feelings she had in the past remain, but sometimes it seems that she will leave him anytime without regret.
So she really confused him.
Enoch pondered for a moment, and then he said, “Margaret, you have me confused.”
At Enoch’s words, Margaret’s expression changed strangely.
It was an expression of disbelief at what she just heard. Maybe she was a little perplexed.
“It’s really surprising. Your Highness said such a thing, it seems the fever hasn’t gone down yet.”
Then, belatedly, Enoch remembered the words she had said.
Maybe Margaret still doesn’t believe he cares about her?
If so, he could understand why she hides her feelings like this without clearly expressing them.
“I wonder if your heart is the same as it was in the past.”
So he deliberately brought up such a straight-forward question.
At that moment, Kayden appeared, picking his ear.
“I think I just heard the crown prince’s bullshit?”
“It’s not bullshit. There is no one who does not know the passionate unrequited love of Young Lady Floné towards His Highness Enoch.”
Ruzef spoke to me as if he was grumbling. Kayden nodded his head.
“Oh, it was like that in the past.”
Kayden’s reaction was quite annoying. Concluding that ‘it was like that in the past’ seemed to emphasize that Margaret is not like that now.
Enoch felt an unsatisfactory unfamiliar feeling towards Kayden, who interfered with him in everything.
‘You don’t even know Margaret.’
The one who had been with her from the very beginning on this island was Enoch. He thought there was a bond between Margaret and him that no one else knew about.
“Margaret, what is your ideal type? If what you like is a face, I have a handsome face.”
Kayden mumbled the annoying words once more and put his hand on Margaret’s shoulder.
Enoch, who couldn’t stand it, grabbed Kayden’s wrist.
He touched Margaret after contemplating dozens or tens of thousands of times, but Kayden always did it with ease.
“Where are you touching?”
Margaret’s eyes widened, surprised by Enoch’s deep voice, which seemed to suppress anger.
Kayden shrugged and walked away from Margaret.
“I’m fine, Enoch.”
Margaret, who replied so casually, smiled and walked towards the fireplace where Diego, Ruzef, and Yuanna were gathered.
Enoch got up slowly and followed her.
“Are you guys doing well? I came here because it seems like no one knows how to cook.”
Margaret asked Yuanna.
Yuanna turned to Diego who was standing next to her. Diego closed his eyes, unable to face the dead duck directly.
Yuanna sighed and pointed to him.
“I do not know. It doesn’t seem like it’s going well.”
“I’ve cooked before. I can do it.”
“You’re not even preparing the ingredients. Other people won’t be able to cook anyway. I’ll do it.”
In response to Margaret’s answer, Yuanna said, “Weird. I knew you not long ago, but you seem to know us well.”
At Yuanna’s words, Enoch felt uncomfortable as if there was a thorn stuck in his throat.
He thought he was the only one Margaret was interested in. So he thought she knew everything about him.
Is she like that to everyone?
It seems that he was not the only special person to her in the past or present.
“Yeah……? You said you couldn’t do it last time. And since you are all nobles, you must have never cooked before.”
At Margaret’s rebuttal, Yuanna nodded her head with an understanding expression. Then she immediately asked Margaret, tilting her head as if something was suspicious.
“But you are also a noble.”
Margaret replied indifferently, “I am a bit special. I am a famous weirdo.”
And Kayden, who was nearby, nodded his head in agreement.
“Oh, yeah. Margaret was no ordinary weirdo.”
Ruzef added, “You should have seen Young Lady Floné when she was obsessed with the love potion.”
“Love potion? Oh, right, something like that happened.”
“How do you know that, Lord?”
“Because my family sponsored the experiment, at that time I went to Floné’s mansion and made a mess.”
cough. Margaret coughed and looked at Kayden.
Seeing this, Enoch felt uncomfortable again. Margaret wasn’t the type of woman to be bothered by those words.
‘How dare you bother her?’
Yeah. As expected, I am the only one for her. What should I do? I have to take care of her.
Kayden, who was talking to Ruzef, suddenly frowned and looked at Ruzef. In an instant, the atmosphere was gloomy.
“When I think about it again, I get pissed off. Do the servants of God experiment on humans? Those pieces of shit.”
When Kayden spat harsh words at Ruzef, he grabbed him by the collar with a fierce face.
“Are you done?”
“Do I look like I’m done? You don’t seem to know what shame is, do you?”
“Stop it, Lord!”
Ruzef and Kayden’s voices gradually rose. Seeing this, Margaret sighed, and Enoch just watched without any intention of stopping them.
This is because it was not the first time the conversation between the two had turned into a fight.
“Stop it. Guys, please stay out of the way.”
Yuanna, who was quietly watching the tension flowing between them, said so.
Eventually, Margaret shook her head and went back to the fireplace, and Enoch also followed her and sat in front of the fireplace.
Kayden and Ruzef seem exhausted after fighting for a long time. Ruzef grumbled as he walked over and sat down next to me.
There was silence in the hut for a moment.
Kayden was busy watching Diego as if he was looking for his fault.
“What? This is not how you do it.”
Kayden stood in front of the table where Diego was standing and began to nag, pointing to the trimmed duck meat.
“Hey, you didn’t remove the organs, did you? You have to throw it away.”
Yuanna, who was helping Diego next to him, quietly stepped back as if she thought it would be annoying.
“Make a cut from the stomach to the tail…… oh, okay, look me just……”
Finally, I pushed Diego away while Kayden grabbed the knife. Then I trimmed the duck very skillfully.
Somehow, I think Kayden’s tenacious life is becoming more like mine, but I must be mistaken……?
“Excuse me, Lord. Why do you keep talking informally? Please use honorifics.”
Diego protested with a somewhat dissatisfied face. Kayden stared at Diego as he trimmed the duck meat.
Maybe it was because his eyes were bright red, so when he stared at someone like that, it was terrifying.
Seeing Diego frown, he must have felt a chill in Kayden’s eyes. Indeed, Kayden is not called a lunatic for no reason.
“Well, if you like it, I’ll do that, Sir Diego.”
As Kayden replied casually, this time Ruzef, who was sitting next to me, also protested.
“Then, why don’t you use honorifics when talking to me……?!”
Kayden ignored Ruzef’s question and cut the duck meat—that had its organs removed—into large pieces with a knife.
Diego was still looking at him and asked with a look of disbelief.
“If the Young Lady of Floné is a bit special—as she said, aren’t you also a noble, Lord? How can you be so good at this?”
“It’s because I’ve done it many times. We wizards do a lot of experiments.”
I knew it was a joke.
Kayden is a wizard, but he hates experiments with living creatures.
But Diego, not knowing this, looked at Kayden with a look of astonishment.
However, Kayden was quietly cutting the meat without any further explanation.
