The disagreement between Riftan and Maxi is set to continue in the upcoming Under the Oak Tree Chapter 83. In the last chapter, Riftan returns home severely injured after being attacked by a monster, leaving Maxi shocked at the sight of him covered in blood.
While Maxi has overcome her fear of blood, Riftan still treats her like a child who needs to be shielded from such sights. His overprotective nature frustrates Maxi, as she doesn’t want to be treated like a fragile child. This difference in perspective will likely lead to further conflict between the two.
Chapter 83 will reveal how Maxi handles Riftan’s overprotectiveness and insistence on treating her delicately. Despite his injuries, Riftan may continue to prioritize protecting Maxi over being honest about his own condition.
The new chapter will demonstrate whether Maxi can get Riftan to treat her like an equal partner who can handle difficult situations maturely.
Fans are eager to see how this disagreement develops the relationship between the two main characters. The next installment promises progress in Riftan and Maxi’s character arcs as they navigate their opposing viewpoints.
Recap and Review
In the next chapter, Ruth begins by apologizing to Maxi for not properly preparing her to control her magic abilities. He wants to resume her magic lessons so she can learn to harness her powers, admitting he should have warned her about the challenges she would face.
Later, we see Maxi hear noises coming from the main hall. When she investigates, she discovers one of the knights holding Riftan’s armor, covered in blood. Maxi immediately realizes Riftan must be injured and rushes to check on him.
Riftan’s extreme protectiveness over Maxi stems from good intentions but may ultimately strain their relationship. His insistence on shielding Maxi from difficult situations prevents her from maturing and being seen as an equal.
While Riftan’s concerns come from a place of care, he needs to understand that Maxi can handle more than he gives her credit for. If he cannot start treating Maxi as a mature partner, it may cause underlying resentment and impact their bond over time.
Maxi’s desire for independence and Riftan’s protectiveness both stem from reasonable places. Maxi wants to be tough and self-sufficient, but Riftan worries she may be pushing herself too far. As humans, we all have limits.
Riftan’s actions may seem overbearing, like he wants Maxi to do nothing but play with cats. However, his protectiveness comes from caring about her wellbeing. In his mind, Maxi lived a pampered life as a noble’s daughter.
He likely assumes she never faced hardships at home. Riftan just wants to prevent Maxi from dealing with difficulties and sights she isn’t accustomed to. But he doesn’t know about the mistreatment Maxi faced in her early life.
That’s why Maxi feels so uncomfortable when Riftan treats her with kid gloves. She has already matured through challenging experiences he is unaware of. Both characters have valid viewpoints shaped by their differing backgrounds.
If Riftan tried to understand where Maxi was coming from, he could balance his protectiveness with giving her space to demonstrate her strength. Open communication would help them find a middle ground between sheltering Maxi and letting her push too far.
Spoilers and Predictions
While there are currently no leaks or spoilers for Under the Oak Tree chapter 82, we can speculate about potential events in the upcoming chapter 83 based on the story so far.
One likely scenario is that Maxi will confront Riftan about his overprotective treatment of her. She may point out that she is not a child anymore and that he cannot continue to shield her from every potential hardship.
If Maxi does not firmly state her frustrations soon, this issue could escalate over time and breed underlying resentment. She needs Riftan to understand that his behavior, while well-intentioned, is undermining her independence and growth.
