Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 296
Sidechapter: Mia’s Diary of Island Incidents
30th day of the 7th month.
Today for lunch, I had grilled abalone.
It was wonderful. I thought of mushrooms because of how chewy it was. It also smelled like fresh seafood, which is something I like.
It had the right amount of salt, and the seaweed salad that came with it was nice and chewy. I like to chew. It really showed me that there is more to food than just taste.
The most luxurious thing you can do is eat seafood on a boat. I didn’t know, though, that shellfish are kind of like mushrooms and taste really good.
I should tell the head chef and ask him to add them as soon as possible to the menu.
Highly recommended. ✰✰✰✰✰
I had a strange soup for dinner.
The strange creature called “Archdaemon’s familiar” was cooked to make it. It has a lot of tentacles, which Esmeralda found disgusting, but I tried some and it was really good.
It has suckers on its legs, and when you chew on them, they feel really different. These are really easy to get hooked on.
Note: I feel like most foods that come from the sea are chewy. Tomorrow, we’ll get to the island. I’m excited to see what I’ll be able to eat there.
So, after reading it over, it looks like my diary has once again turned into a page of food reviews. I don’t know how. Maybe there’s something wrong with it.
Anyway, we got back to our boat in the end. It’s been a crazy couple of days, but now that we’re all home safely, I think I’ll look back on this trip with fondness. I might as well write them down since I’m already thinking about them.
We got to the island where Esmeralda likes to go on vacation. Just before we got to land, our rafts flipped over, but everything was fine. Abel and Sion came to help me, and with their help, I had no trouble getting onto the island.
As soon as we were settled on the island, Esmeralda taught me how to swim. I learned right away how to swim. Everyone was surprised by how fast I could learn. Even Sion’s eyes went wide.
He said, “You look like a mermaid!”
I’m sure he was a little over the top, but I appreciate the thought. The rest of the day went well as well. It was really fun.
On the second day, things began to go wrong.
When we woke up, it was storming.
I thought I was going to be blown away by how strong the wind was. After all, I’m not that heavy. When the wind is strong, people like me who are light need to be extra careful.
Then I realized that the only people around were me, Esmeralda, Anne, Abel, Sion, Keithwood, and Nina. Everyone except the seven of us had disappeared! The Emerald Star was gone as well.
I still remember being so surprised.
The storm was over, but the Emerald Star did not return. We had no choice but to figure out how to live by ourselves on the island.
Everyone did what I said because I was the resident survival expert. We got food and made fires to send signals. Now, it’s all a nice memory, but at the time, it was a lot of work, which was made worse when Esmeralda disappeared…
I’ll skip that part of the story to protect Esmeralda’s good name.
In any case, on day four, we finally got off the island. But I had no idea that the most dangerous part of this adventure was right at the end.
While we were swimming toward the Emerald Star, a man-eating fish appeared in front of us! It was out for blood, and it came at me with terrible speed, which was actually a relief. It was much better for it to come after me and not the others, because I was ready for it. So, once the massive man-eating monster of a fish got close enough, I slapped it right on the nose and sent it whimpering away. Easy-peasy.
I did, however, discover a terrible secret. My gut is telling me there will be lots of trouble down the road. Just thinking about how I’m going to explain everything to Miss Rafina is giving me a headache. I’m going to need to make so many excuses… Ugh, my ancestors sure didn’t make things easy for me.
