Under the Oak Tree took a very cute and peaceful turn when Riftan finally understood Maxi’s inevitable nature to care for the wounded and become their healer. Before, Riftan had to put in a lot of effort just to convince and get Maxi to talk to him.
Riftan is overprotective of Maxi, who always wants to be in her sight. He even hired a lot of servants so that Maxi wouldn’t get tired of the choirs in the house, but she got bored sitting idle all day. So she found solace in treating wounded soldiers in Riftan.
Maxi also wishes to learn magic spells and mana treatments to become a professional healer. Riftan worries that all of this will tire her wife, but in front of Maxi, he has no choice but to accept her efforts. So he hired a healing specialist who could be her assistant and teacher.
Under the Oak Tree is a widely popular romance manga series adapted from a web novel by Kim Suji. Manhwa revolves around the life of Maximilian, a shy and submissive girl. She comes from a noble family, which is evident from her behavior.
However, she was forced to marry a famous knight Riftan. Immediately after getting married, Rifatn had to leave with his soldiers to participate in a military campaign. Maxi is now a military wife who will live in hope of her husband’s quick and safe return. But it took Riftan three years to return home.
During these three years, Maxi will have less confident and less complex thoughts. She will consider herself unworthy of Riftan. Meanwhile, after returning, Riftan decided to spend the rest of his life just for Maxi and help her remove all negative thoughts from her head.
The two spend time together and eventually develop feelings for each other. Their love knows no bounds and become a famous couple in town. However, their love is repeatedly tested by fate due to internal and external conflicts.
In a previous episode of Under the Oak Tree, the new shaman teaches Maxi a lot of new things about healing. At first, a frustrated Riftan brought the magician to their quarters and introduced him to Maxi. Her reaction was completely different as she was surprised at the magician’s age.
Even though he is old, this magician is still strong and not weak like other 68-year-olds. However, Riftan was angry at the deal to take the mage in exchange for three knights. But Maxi comforts him and asks him to calm down. But Riftan is worried, the mage is not her remaining patient.
Meanwhile, the next day Maxi’s lessons begin. The magician carefully told her the effects and side effects of using magic to cure illness. The Mage will accurately read everything in detail and she will note all the important points on paper.
To Maxi’s surprise, the magician told her how heavy use of Healing Magic could harm the patient’s mind. However, it was reckless to believe in magical healing for soldiers, but when they believed it, it became a need. The magician carefully told her that she should only treat poor people.
Not everyone deserves to be healed, especially the wicked because it makes them stronger. The Mage even promised to teach Maxi how to use Mana. She is excited to learn new magical things. Meanwhile, at night, Riftan records the details of how the new mage taught her.
The next day, at the infirmary, the knights were discussing the number of monsters prevalent in the village. At this moment, one of them asked Maxi if she had visited the village after the festival. She nodded and wished to visit the village with Riftan.
