I'm Stuck on a Remote Island With the Male Leads - Chapter 73
Kayden came up to me and asked, “How is his condition?”
“It’s not very good. I think I need to treat the wound first and see how it goes.”
I took a deep breath and looked at Enoch’s face one more time. Everyone gathered around me and Enoch.
“Is that a medicine box?”
Yuanna looked at the first aid kit Ruzef had brought curiously. Arthdal kept his arms crossed and still looked at me with disbelief.
“Young Lady, are you going to do the treatment? You? I know you are good at everything. But this is a different matter. And if something goes wrong, will you take responsibility?”
Arthdal ignored Enoch, but secretly cared for him.
I looked up at Arthdal with fierce eyes. His eyes met mine, and he flinched in surprise.
Yuanna looked at the two of us alternately and then scolded Arthdal.
“You’re not helping anyway, but Young Lady will do better than someone who doesn’t do anything.”
Then she waved her hand at Arthdal as if telling him to get out of the way. Arthdal walked away with a somewhat pitiful face.
“If you want to help, please keep your mouth shut, Your Highness.”
Kayden, who was sitting next to me, looked at Arthdal and clicked his tongue.
“Hey, Lord, are you serious?”
“It’s been a while since Lord said the right thing.”
Unexpectedly, in response to Arthdal’s rebuttal, Ruzef defended Kayden. Then Arthdal looked back at Ruzef with a shocked face from the sense of betrayal.
“Archbishop, how could you……”
“What is important right now is treatment, isn’t it? The only person among us who can use this medicine is Young Lady Floné.”
Ruzef cut off Arthdal’s words. Kayden, who was quietly watching Ruzef, smiled with a funny face and quarreled with him.
“Hey Ddaggari, you’re talking too much.”
“What? I am on your side, you dirty wizard…..!”
Ruzef, who had been defending Kayden until a while ago, burst into anger.
“Cheeky things that came in pairs.”
Arthdal looked at Ruzef and Kayden and shook his head.
It’s a complete mess.
“Can you guys please get out of here? You guys are noisy. Enoch is sick now, he needs treatment and rest.”
My words silenced the three men. Diego and Yuanna were sitting quietly in the first place, so they didn’t bother me.
I sighed and looked at Enoch’s uniform lying there. The jacket must have been worn out in the first place, and he was now wearing only one shirt, which was torn and ragged.
“Enoch, I need to heal your wounds, so I’ll take off your shirt.”
Enoch gently frowned at my words, and slowly nodded his head.
I glanced at Kayden who was sitting next to me. Then he helped me take off Enoch’s shirt so that the wounds did not open as much as possible.
Enoch let out a painful groan again. He seemed to be in pain when the shirt that was stuck to his wound was taken off.
The pain seemed to be transmitted to me, so I wrinkled my nose and looked at Enoch’s expression.
Watching him take a few deep breaths, I took off his shirt completely and examined the wound closely. The firm abs, which would normally have been admired, couldn’t even be seen because of the serious wound.
“Oh my God, this is so serious.”
Yuanna mumbled, covering her mouth with both her hands. As she said, his wound was really deep.
I checked the number of disinfectants left. I also checked the condition of the ointment to be applied to the small wound. Then, I wet a cloth with the water that Ruzef had brought to wipe the blood and dirt off the wound.
“Put this in Enoch’s mouth. It will hurt.”
I rolled up a piece of dress fabric from the medicine box and handed it to Ruzef, who was sitting on the other side. Ruzef immediately put the cloth carefully into Enoch’s mouth.
I pressed the wound with a sterile cloth to stop the bleeding from still seeping out.
Enoch’s eyebrows furrowed. For some reason, I felt like I could feel the pain, so I frowned without realizing it.
After a while, I saw that the blood had stopped to some extent, so I prepared an antiseptic.
“Enoch, it’s going to hurt.”
Enoch nodded his head as if he was okay with my words. I poured the disinfectant directly over his wound.
Enoch, who groaned in pain, endured it well.
After checking his complexion, I put a bandage on the disinfected area and applied ointment over the lightly scratched wounds.
The problem was the large wound that needed sutures. The first aid kit also contained dressing materials needed for suturing.
However, since it was exposed for a long time in a state of risk of infection, it was not safe to suture it as it is.
“The wound is wide open. I think I will have to wait until the flesh heals.”
I finished cutting the bandage, fixed it with a clip, and put the remaining medicines in the first aid kit.
“Better to keep the bandage on. Also, I think it’s better to let the wound heal naturally.”
Everyone gathered around Enoch and looked at me.
And those eyes are like……
They were like guardians listening to the patient’s progress from the doctor in the emergency room.
I looked at Enoch’s complexion with such an absurd thought.
Stroking his hair, I added, “It will leave a scar and will take a very long time, but I will take care of you.”
“I will help too. Treatment is also my specialty. I also learned all kinds of new medicines from Young Lady.”
Ruzef said to me with a calm face.
“By the way, this is really fascinating. I don’t know what it’s all about.”
Yuanna looked at the medicine box and said so.
Kayden responded, “I know, right. I’ve been to the eastern continent, but there’s no such language.”
I looked at him in dismay. Then quickly came up with an excuse.
“Uh, well….., there is a minority ethnic group called Korea in the eastern continent. I’m sure no one knows.”
Those who listened to me asked each other, “Where is Korea?” with curious faces.
Ignoring their gazes, I put my hand on the cheek of Enoch, who was asleep, to check if he had a fever.
My dress pocket wriggled and Eunji, who had been hiding, quietly poked his head out.
Ruzef was startled and stepped back.
Eunji was startled by his scream, so he hurriedly hid in my palm.
I gently stroked him to calm him down.
“Young Lady, is that a monster?”
Ruzef asked me, unable to take his eyes off Eunji with a pale face.
“It looks like an anaconda monster……”
Before I could answer, Diego drew his sword. Kayden immediately raised his dagger, and Ruzef hurriedly stepped in front of me.
He ran to me and stood there as if to protect me.
“What are you doing now!”
Ruzef roared with an angry face.
I’ve seen him get nervous or annoyed a lot, but this is the first time I’ve seen Ruzef angry like this.
“It is a monster. It is dangerous.”
Without agitation, Diego pointed his sword at Eunji.
Eunji trembled, climbed up on my body, laid down on my shoulder, and hid his face through my hair.
I stroked Eunji and looked at Diego.
“You scared him!”
As I raised my voice, there was suddenly a chilling silence.
Why is everyone looking at me like that?
I looked around in embarrassment and asked. Diego, who was pointing his sword at me, lowered it.
Yuanna said to me with a surprised face.
“I, I’ve never seen Young Lady Floné so angry.”
“I’m jealous of that snake for the first time.”
“Anyone who sees it will mistake it for a pet snake.”
Yuanna, Kayden, and Arthdal spoke one after another, and Diego gave the finale, “Tell us what happened.”
“I told you I’d explain. And I don’t think that’s what a man with a sword should say, Sir Diego.”
I told him without hiding my anger. That man had no hesitation in pointing his sword at me.
“I apologize, Young Lady.”
In the end, Diego apologized to me.
I accepted Diego’s apology with an uncomfortable face and explained what had happened.
Of course, I didn’t mention the story that Kayden distrusted me.
First, I went to the cliff with Kayden and fell after being attacked by a monster, and found an egg at the place I woke up. The egg that followed me hatched and Eunji was born.
After explaining the situation that Eunji seemed to have imprinted on me, everyone looked at Eunji on my shoulder with astonished faces.
“This is the first time I have ever seen a monster imprint on a human,” Ruzef muttered.
When I looked at him with a puzzled face, he explained to me slowly.
“Usually, imprints are made on top predators, but monsters don’t recognize humans as the top predator.”
Ohh. As I exclaimed, Kayden, who was still in thought, continued, “If it is an anaconda, it will be difficult to find another individual to imprint on because it is already a top predator. But it is not impossible that it can be imprinted on humans. Of course, on the premise that you have mana.”
I patted Eunji, who still hid his face through my hair, with my finger.
The premise that I have mana…..?
“The amount of mana that you have is enormous, Young Lady.”
Then, Arthdal suddenly chimed in.
What he said was true. In the past, Margaret’s magic teacher said, “Young Lady has a fairly large amount of mana, so if you develop your physical strength, you can control your mana.”
But anyway, Kayden must have had more mana than I had, so why did Eunji choose me?
And you can’t use magic on this island in the first place.
I tilted my head, narrowed my brow, and asked Arthdal, “But how do you know how much mana I have?”
He shrugged nonchalantly, then tapped his eyelid with his finger, and smiled.
“I have eyes to see that.”
