I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 59
Enoch clicked his tongue, put his arm around my shoulder, and pulled me closer to him.
Thanks to that, I moved away from Arthdal a little. I felt somehow protected by Enoch.
“Do you think Margaret is your maid? How can someone like you be the Crown Prince? I am very worried about the future of the Hestia Kingdom.”
“What? Hey Banhwang. Are you done talking?”
Arthdal refuted Enoch’s remarks in an angry tone. He also called him ‘Banhwang’, which was a call he made to insult Enoch.
[T/N: Just a reminder in case you forget: Ban means half, Wang-ja means prince.]
Enoch looked at Arthdal with a calm face and burst into laughter.
“Oh, I’m sorry. I have an allergic to disrespectful people.”
Yuanna, who was watching the conversation between the two from afar, burst into laughter.
Arthdal’s eyebrows twitched. As he looked back, Yuanna hurriedly turned her head and pretended not to know anything.
“Yeah. I think I was disrespectful to you. I have the dignity of a royal family. So, I apologize, Young Lady.”
Well, he has a boss style like Kkondae, but seeing him apologizing, it doesn’t seem like he’s a person without common sense.
 An older person who believes they are always right.
“But please catch the bug, Young Lady. Please. You can do it, right?”
I take back my words. He was still a person who had no common sense.
“You can’t even catch a bug? You’ll pass out if you run into a monster.”
“That’s different. And that bug is too weird to be called an ordinary bug.”
“You seem to think that I’m an all-rounder, but I don’t like bugs either. Especially those with a lot of legs or those without legs…… Ew……”
I hate to even imagine it. As I was getting tired because of Arthdal, Enoch’s hand on my shoulder was also slightly strengthened.
“Your Highness Arthdal.”
Yuanna, who was watching the situation, came closer and called Arthdal.
“Stop bothering Young Lady Floné and come here. You said you would help me cook the fish.
Arthdal asked back, shrugging his shoulders with an expression of disbelief.
Yuanna quickly read the situation and saved me. The moment she made eye contact with me, she smiled beautifully, and somehow it felt like I could see a light shining behind her back.
I felt possessed by her smile. Is that why all the male leads fell for her?
“If you leave the window open, the bug will go out on its own.”
At the end of Yuanna’s words, Arthdal stopped bothering me and approached her.
As I watched them move away toward the kitchen, Enoch pulled me back.
I looked up at him, almost hugging him. I met with his deep golden eyes.
“I hope you don’t go hunting alone with Crown Prince Arthdal in the future. I’m worried.”
“Oh…… don’t worry. I don’t think it will ever happen again.”
‘It was terrible.’
In the future, I must not say that I will teach anyone how to hunt recklessly.
So as not to face a catastrophe where I experience the bitterness of life while trying to give life experiences.
I shook my head. Thinking about it again makes my head hurt. Then I heard Enoch’s low voice.
There seemed to be some kind of turbulent emotion in his calm eyes.
‘It’s like a burning flame.’
Enoch put his hand on my cheek and lowered his head slowly. Then his forehead touched mine.
“Margaret, promise me. Because I am worried.”
His breath was somehow hot, so I held my breath for a moment.
I was often perplexed whenever Enoch said these things. To be precise, it is correct to say that Enoch’s interest in me is a little strange.
‘I’ve never had such a passionate feeling before.’
In fact, I have never received or given any attention or affection. So I’m not sure what it feels like.
Enoch looked cold as a dry branch that stayed strong in the midst of a winter blizzard, but in reality, he had always been a warm-hearted person.
At least that’s how I see him.
Perhaps Enoch and I are people with opposite tendencies. Actually, I was the person who looked like a withered branch.
I looked him in the eye and added, “I don’t want to do anything that you don’t like, Enoch.”
As I faced Enoch, the door of the hut opened and I saw Kayden, who was walking in carrying firewood.
As he saw me and was about to run like an excited puppy, a huge roar echoed inside the hut.
To be precise, it was the sound from the second floor.
“What’s going on……?”
Kayden was startled and drew his dagger. Enoch immediately grabbed my arm, pushed me behind his back, and drew his sword.
Ruzef’s scream was heard from the second floor.
When we all went up to the second floor, what we saw was something like huge claw tufts piercing through Arthdal’s door. It seems to be the bug Arthdal was talking about.
But the bug……
‘What the heck, that’s not just a bug, sir.’
Ruzef, who was startled to see the claw tufts in the hallway on the second floor, sat down and ran to us in haste.
“It looks like a monster Diego has seen before.”
At Enoch’s murmuring, I remembered the tarantula-type monster that Yuanna and her party had encountered.
“I thought it was just a small spider…… No wonder it gave off such suspicious energy.”
Arthdal, who was standing behind us as soon as he came, muttered in fear.
It was amazing that he could notice that the little spider gave off suspicious energy. I think he has good sense.
They evolved. 」
I remembered Yuanna’s monologue in the original novel. It was thrilling.
Fortunately, as if it had just evolved, the spider was easily defeated by Enoch.
Although the corpse of the giant spider was barely removed from the hut, Arthdal’s bedroom was no longer usable due to the stench.
“That’s terrible. It reminds me of nightmares……”
Yuanna sat in front of the fireplace with a white face and muttered.
She must have remembered something that had happened before. Diego, who was sitting next to her, patted her on the shoulder.
It made no sense to sleep on the second floor where the monster had appeared. Eventually, we all spread out our bedding in front of the fireplace.
Enoch and Kayden were still sitting next to me, and Arthdal and Diego were sitting next to Enoch with Yuanna in the middle.
It must be my illusion that Ruzef, who is lying close to the door, looks somewhat lonely, right?
“This makes it clear that monsters evolve.”
Kayden murmured as he lay down, resting the back of his head in his interlaced fingers.
“We have to get off this island.”
Hearing my murmuring, Enoch, who followed me and lay beside me, answered with a sigh.
“To do that, we have to go to the place where the key was found as soon as possible.”
Yeah, we have to go.
“I don’t think this hut is safe either.”
All those who were lying down quietly turned to me upon hearing my words. Embarrassed by the piercing gazes, I hastily got up.
At my question, Enoch rubbed the back of his neck and stood up.
“I was thinking the same thing.”
“Me too. I don’t know how long this hut will last.”
Kayden agreed with Enoch’s words.
But Yuanna, who sat up and looked at me, had a different thought.
“You never know what will happen if you go to the place where the key was found, but losing a great base camp is risky.”
Those who were looking at me turned to Yuanna. She glanced at everyone once and calmly continued to speak.
“Yes, the spider has evolved. But the other monsters haven’t entered the hut yet, have they?”
When Enoch nodded his head as if in agreement with her words, Yuanna smiled softly and spoke to me in a tone asking for consent.
“Let’s go to where the key was found as soon as possible and then clean up the hut. We have to leave anyway to scout the whole island. What do you think, Young Lady?”
At Yuanna’s question, the gaze directed at her returns to me this time.
I nodded and said, “I agree with you, too.”
Thus, we agreed to leave the hut after finding out the secret of the key as soon as possible, and then go to sleep.
Somehow, I feel more reassured because I have a plan.
I was lying quietly staring at the ceiling of the hut. Kayden, who was lying beside me, turned to me.
Bewildered, I also turned my head towards him. The red eyes staring at me were shining eerily.
He smiled at my question. It was a very attractive smile that didn’t fit the situation.
“Because you’re pretty.”
He whispered strange words in a low voice only I could hear. It’s so sweet that it makes my heart flutter a moment.
“Because you’re pretty. You make me keep wanting you.”
Kayden was talking nonsense again. I thought he was babbling as usual and just laughed.
I didn’t know at the time that it wasn’t nonsense.
