I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 6
Enoch looked down quietly at the bottom of the mountain and spat out swear words.
It was a very clear day. The visibility was so good that the far-off horizon came into my eyes more firmly.
There were two more peaks that were about the same height as the mountain we had climbed, and beyond that, we could see the horizon at first glance.
It was an island no matter how I looked at it.
Ha……! Ha ha ha ha ha!
“Damn it, this is an island.”
I swallowed bitter tears with a sense of disappointment as I wiped my face with my hand.
This made my hypothesis even more certain. That this place is inside the novel. It seems that it wasn’t even a hypothesis in the first place.
After a while, I came to my senses and quietly took a look at the topography of the island.
Around the middle, a huge river was flowing, and it looked just like the Han River in Seoul.
For convenience, the other side is called North Island and this side is South Island, and there was another mountain similar to the mountain we climbed on North Island.
There are a total of two mountains in the South Island and one mountain in the North Island.
“It really is an island……”
I sat on the spot. It was because the strength in my legs had been lost.
Enoch, who had gone far and looked around, returned. And he sat down next to me with a disappointed face.
We sat quietly like that and were lost in our own thoughts.
“Where the hell is this place? Is it an island near the Langridge Empire? Or……”
Maybe Korea……? If it is an island where modern Korean items appear, wouldn’t it be possible to doubt the possibility?
In fact, the bigger problem than possessing Margaret is that I didn’t read the novel to the end.
I only read the part where the female lead Yuanna escaped the island through the ‘door’ that was created after a year. That was the end of Volume 1.
— Every year, a door to get off the island opens. And they have to survive on the island in any way and method until the ‘door’ is opened.
Although the novel is in the first-person point of view, such a phrase was clearly written in the introduction.
It’s a novel written by someone in handwriting, but it’s strange that only those words are in a different font.
In this day and age, I wonder who would write a book with their hands, and the description was very light and realistic as if it were an actual story, so I read it more interestingly.
‘All of this happened because I secretly picked up a novel that someone else left on the street. Damn.’
I grabbed my hair.
And Enoch, who was sitting next to me, wiped his face with his hand. He had a rather desperate face.
Enoch narrowed his brow with a helpless face. Then he muttered once more and ruffled his hair in annoyance.
“I can’t think of anything.”
I’ve never seen him show such intense emotions. However, this situation was hopeless for me as well.
“Stuck on this remote island……”
I buried my face in my hands.
Does God even exist? It’s unfair to die after being hit by a fallen signboard, and then have to survive in a novel.
I put my hands on both cheeks with a gloomy face.
I can’t help it. As I planned before, I have to collect as many items as possible for survival and find the bunker that the female lead found.
‘By the way, what are the other male leads doing now?’
In my memory, the male leads wake up in different places. Some people woke up by the river and others woke up in the middle of the forest.
Enoch ran into the female lead while quarreling with Margaret at the beach. Perhaps, the storyline has already gone awry from the beginning, but I have to live for now.
At that moment, a dreadful sound echoed from the hungry stomach. Enoch looked at me.
‘No, is it mine again?’
I don’t know why my stomach keeps protesting.
However, if I think about it, I ate only acai berries and poured all my energy into climbing the mountain. Since Enoch did not sleep, he must have consumed more calories. But how come he’s fine?
‘Okay. There must be a problem with this. Something needs to be done.’
I got up.
“Let’s go down first. Since we know it is an island, let’s go down and take measures. And we have to live.”
I stretched out my hand to Enoch, who was sitting there.
Of course, there was still no place for Enoch in my future plans. But right now, I had no power to run away from him.
Enoch looked at my outstretched hand and looked up at me with a face that was hard to read.
Then I realized that he hates me.
‘Can he take Margaret’s outstretched hand……?’
Reluctantly, I was about to withdraw my hand, but a large hand was wrapped around mine gently.
Although there was still a sign of exhaustion, his low tone was too sweet and harmful to my heart.
No, why is this man so sweet, even when he should be exhausted?
I turned my back, grabbed the front of my chest, took a deep breath, shuddered, and looked back at Enoch with a nonchalant face.
First, we had to go down the mountain before sunset.
3. On a Remote Island With a Man Who Hates Me
The sun was setting when we came down from the mountain. Therefore, it was difficult to find a new bed right now.
Eventually, we decided to stay one more night at the beach where we slept last night.
“We need to escape this island as soon as possible. It would be good to scout the island whenever we have time.”
I nodded in agreement with Enoch’s murmuring. Reconnaissance of the island was essential for me as well.
“Alright. We have a lot of work to do. Shall we get some food for now? At this rate, I think I will starve to death before I even escape from the island.”
Calories are also needed to use simple movements such as sitting and standing.
If I don’t eat enough calories today, it will be difficult to survive on this island from tomorrow. Since I don’t have strength, I can’t even deal with monsters properly.
“Oh, do you know how to light a fire?”
At my question, Enoch was silent for a moment. But unexpectedly, he gave a positive answer.
“I know how to do it. I won the Battle of Romalizan.”
I couldn’t dare to imagine what he would have experienced. It seems that no man would surpass Enoch’s ability to survive.
Once I put my thoughts aside, I made a harpoon. When I finished making it, I decided to catch fish in the sea.
“Wait, are you going to hunt?”
As I got ready to fish, touching the harpoon, Enoch looked at me in disbelief.
I have experienced catching fish with harpoons when I traveled to tropical and remote areas.
‘At that time, I was hunting not by the beach but by the river……’
It’s not that I don’t have any experience at all, so shouldn’t I do something about it?
I patted my forearm and smiled confidently.
But of course, Enoch didn’t believe what I said.
I wondered if it would be better for Enoch to go hunting and make a fire, but it takes more energy than I thought to make a fire. You have to start a fire by rubbing a hard wooden stick against a softwood with straight grooves, but this took a lot more force than I thought.
Fishing doesn’t mean you don’t need muscle strength, but if you have a trick, you can cover it to some extent, so it’ll be okay.
“Well, if I fail to fish, I’ll at least collect seaweed or scallops. When the water goes down on the shore, if I remove the rocks, I can collect scallops.”
I rolled up the hem of my dress, which was ripped up to the calf, and tied it up.
The skirt was lifted above my knees, revealing my bare legs, and I could see Enoch turning his head hurriedly. It seems that his earlobe was red……
Why? Is this your first time seeing a girl’s leg? I tilted my head and headed towards the shore with a harpoon in my hand.
First of all, I will try to find a place where the water is not draining out and is stagnant.
So, I first looked at the cracks in the rocks where the waves hit. Again, the small fish that had been washed away by the waves were panting.
I picked up the fish, laid them on stones, and threw them into the sea. It was to lure and hunt big fish. After a while, the fish gathered.
Watching the gathered fish, I measured the timing, and then lowered the harpoon into the water.
The first few times failed, but after repeating about 20 times, I was able to catch two fish that looked like lead fish.
I’ve been thinking about it since I enjoyed hardcore camping in Korea, but I think I’m wild.
I don’t know if I’m happy with something like this, but the sense of accomplishment was incredible.
