Chapter 262 He Had Shoelaces
Nicole did not want to stay in this
hellhole a moment longer!
Before she could sink deeper in despair,
she saw one of the burly men pointing
with his finger in the direction of where
Nicole was. Then, he pointed at the fire
and to his mouth, making an eating
Even a fool would be able to understand
what that meant. These indigenous
people were going to roast her!
What rotten luck!
Nicole trembled in panic and raised her
eyes to look at the man who was watching
She revealed a smile that looked worse
than a frown.
“Sorry for the trouble. Bye now!”
Nicole rolled to her feet and ran, but
before she could take two steps, she
tripped and fell over the many sticks and
branches littered on the ground.
She was already very dizzy and feverish,
and only managed to feel slightly better
after some sleep. After the fall, her mind
went completely blank.
Nicole laid on the ground and did not
come back to her senses for a long time…
Another man saw the situation and went
over to another man that was wearing
shoes, gibbering and gesticulating.
Wait. Although the shoes worn by that
man in front of her were covered in so
much mud that she could not tell what
they originally looked like, the shoes had
This was a primitive tribe. How did he get
shoes with laces?
Nicole’s eyes lit up. With a surge of
strength that came out of nowhere, she
suddenly climbed up to tug his shoes.
The man was tall and sturdy, so how
could Nicole possibly shake him?
She saw the vague trademark. La
Sportiva, a top Italian brand in the world.
Their outdoor sports equipment was
Is someone like me stranded here too?’
Nicole subconsciously looked up to see
the man. She could not see his facial
features since it was painted with lots of
markings, but his eyes twinkled brightly
as he winked and smiled at her.
Once their eyes met, she suddenly had a
strong sense of familiarity…
A fake native!
Before she could finish, someone
suddenly approached her and roughly
yanked her by the arm, dragging her
towards the fire.
Never in her wildest dreams did she
expect to be roasted and eaten by a
She screamed as more and more people
gathered. She glanced around and could
no longer tell which one was the fake
native she saw earlier!
Surrounded by the thick jungle, the sky
was dim, and in the surrounding
darkness, the distant sea breeze howled
like a wild beast crouching in the dark,
waiting for the opportunity to devour
The bonfire burned brightly as the group
of indigenous people stared at her like
Although they were of varying heights,
they were all mostly naked and grimy.
Their faces were painted with various
colors, and the lower half of their bodies
were covered with a simple skirt made of
branches and leaves. They looked
extremely terrifying and fierce.
They looked like indigenous people who
she had only seen on TV.
“Hello? Annyeonghaseyo? Bonj our?
Konnichiwa? Hola?” 1
Nicole tried saying hello in sixteen
languages, but the people in front of her
did not respond and merely babbled on in
Their non-responsiveness was
Where was that fake native who wore
Nicole did not know if she had misheard,
but among the exchange of gibberish, she
suddenly heard a distinct snicker.
That gloating laugh was clearly
something that could only come from city
folk like her.
She snapped her head up and looked into
a pair of bright eyes.
Before she had time to rejoice, several
men lifted her and headed in the
direction of the bonfire.
She felt terribly cold. Only one thought
ran through her mind. ‘Are they really
going to roast me alive?!
“Cannibalism is illegal!”
Nicole yelled in horror as the men
suddenly let go and dropped her to the
She did not care about the pain she felt.
Just as she was about to stand up, she saw
the men surrounding her while holding
branches that were lit with fire that they
had picked up from the bonfire.
The circle was small, but gradually, more
people joined the circle, making it larger
The indigenous people held torches and
formed a circle as they sang and danced
around her. It was an extremely strange
Nicole felt more and more panicked.
Every time she tried to run out of the
circle, the group waved their torches at
her, forcing her back into the middle.
They would not let her out.
As the temperature rose, the flames
licked at her body and the smoke caused
her to cough incessantly.
Nicole was running in circles frantically.
She simply did not know what to do. ‘Somebody… Save In…/
