    he was 12 when he left his stepfather & Croyso and joined mercenaries. Some time surely must have passed since the drake (when he was 16) I mean in his POV they have other comissions and they went even to Balto, that must've been few months at least. So I'd say more like 16-17ish. Also he meets there Gabel and Hebby and Evan said they're knights, if Riftan was 16 then Gabel would be 15 - super young for a knight; but who knows :hmm:

    Also later in his POV after the sword competition there's time laps of 4 years if he was 16 during competition, he would be 20 y/o after those 4 years. He sees Maxi there, she'd be 14? that's soo young (they talk about her per "young woman", I know in different times she would have been married by that age, but idk 20 y/o gawking at 14 y/o :blobsweat:).
    Or maybe the 4 years passed since he officially joined (meaing he was knighted) - that would make sense also
    hmmm sooo many questions :sweating_profusely:

    No, she was 16 when Riftan saw Maxi grown up after saving her as a child. In the next chapter of the webnovel it will be clarified, if I'm not wrong. Riftan will overhear the nobles commenting that she is of the right age to marry (16 at that time, OMG)

    Today's chapter is about Riftan dancing with the sassy noblewoman, I remember after this he hears men talking about Maxi and he gets jealous

    So the time laps of 4 years is counted from the moment he became officially a knight - meaning when he was 18. Phew

    yeah this makes sense because I believe he saw her again when he was 22 so she would be 16, which is not as weird :ROFLMAO:. I forget that in that time period, she would’ve been of marriageable age by like 12. This just reminded me of how long it took for them to reunite and for Riftan to see her again. It just makes their separation after book 1 hurt more. I am living for their togetherness now! It’s so heartwarming to read how mature and secure they are with each other while retaining that passion. It was a long time coming, but it’s paid off.

    exactly, in some point of Riftan's POV it says that he back for the ducate 10 years past he go away. So he was 22 and she 16.

    I stopped reading the POV for now (after the sword competition, before the sad realisations/times in duchy :blobsneeze:) to accumulate the chapters :D, so I can read them one after another for immerssion (those 2 chapters a week, i couldn't remeber what happened :blobsweat_2: between releases). I guess then everything will be clearer (y)

    Riftan is 16 when he goes to his first sword competition and after 4 years passes Maxi is 16 almost to turn 17.

    I hope both Riff and Richt, especially Richt compete honestly. And if one of them lost, they would accept it, humbly. Some supporting characters of UTOT have been described wonderfully and beautifully by Kim Soo Ji. Even, they have been able to steal our heart, too. Sometimes, we might love them more than Riftan or Maxi. Hopefully, Kim Soo Ji still lets them alive until they return to Anatole. I know that several of you also wish RDKs would be Calypses' children uncle if Kim Soo Ji allowed Maxi to be preggo. Hi, honestly, I also wish Ruth could be Maxi's children's teacher.

    Sooo do you think we will see the fight between Richt and Ulyseon or Hebby (can't deny I'd prefer to see Ulyseon :blobwhistle:) in tomorrow's chapter? Or we will just get only the info how the fight went :blobpopcorn_two:?

    Before, i thought riftan is bit too overreacting with „just“ 3 yrs waiting time for maxi after WT. come on it is just 3 years!!!
    but if we see the overall story, he has been waiting for maxi since his childhood.
    That is an AWE!!! :eek:

    I assume we will see the fight between Richt with either daddy Hebby or baby Yuri.

    Yes, that comes more from time. He did some kind of training to become a knight. And that would be more likely with "your" 4 years til he became offically a knight.(y)(y)

    Yes, I agree ;)

    thanks to the angels here nowI know. But in one ofmy previous post I was just wondering whether the time laps of 4 years should be counted from the time he started hagning out with RDK (when he was 16 y/o right after sword competition) or from the moment he became officialy a knight ( when he was 18 y/o).since book says only sth along the lines "it's been 4 years since joining RDK". So the 4 years only refer to the time spent as a knight in RDK ranks because 18+4 = 22. So basically at that point in the book he has been with Evan and the rest for 6 years, but as a official knight only for 4 years.

    They have 6 years age gap, so when Maxi is 16 or 17, RIftan is 22 or 23.
    4 years passed since he become a knight at 18, so Riftan first met the teenage Maxi when he was 22, and she was 16.

    But the problem he didn't tell her he has loved her since childhood that's why Riftan was hurt leaving her but if he told her why he always wanted her then Maxi would've understand but I still believe she would go to WT.

    I think he loves her but the way he expresses his love is through physical touches and snusnu. In his POV it mentioned when he met her again in croix banquet after he became a knight, the way he feels towards her is more to passionate and longing feelings.
    He also has high sexual drive and he said "it is your bad luck to become a wife of a man like me" when they spent the night together in Zeno.
    But yes i agree on that part where Maxi thinks Riftan only wanted to spend 4 hours daily with her in their bedroom, and wont share the rest of his daily life burden with her. But to Riftan's defense, his work is dangerous and strenuous, he just wanted the best for her, wrapped her in silk, beautiful dresses and adorned with jewelleries. He also wanted her to live a comfortable life, pampered and attended by servants in the castle. He wanted to treat her like a queen while he does all the hardwork. He thought she deserves a life like that because she is a noblewoman. But Maxi thinks differently, she fell inlove with him and wanted to be with him everywhere he goes, to share all his burdens etc and in order to achieve that she has to learn something useful which is magic.

    That's true. I think somewhere in his POV or Book 1 *i cant remember* it mentioned Maxi's existence has deep rooted in his heart before he got the chance to fall inlove with anyone else.
    He felt the pain separated 3 years from her during the 1st dragon subjugation. Maxi didnt feel the pain at that time because she hasnt fall inlove with him. And including those times he fantasized and longed for her before he married her, must be around 1 decade of pain. :ROFLMAO:
    That is why he was a bit overreacting to be separated again from her when she went to WT.

    Riftan said, "It's your bad luck to become wife of men like me". I believe he said that because he comes from low class and she's a noblewoman from a high class, so he believes at the beginning of the book Maxi must been unlucky marrying a man who is lowly and has no lineage of nobility in his blood. If Riftan only knew Maxi is lucky being a wife to him.

    Im pretty sure, just like @Ames2021 said, he said this while pouncing Maxi in the morning in the inn (ep. 5 manhwa) to express that Maxi is unlucky to have insatiable man (sexual beast) for a husband :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: (Maxi ofc interpreted that the way she would that she was lucky to be married at all, because according to her father she's stuttering mess no one would want). But Riftan clearly ment that he was a beast in bed and if he could he would never leave the bed lol

    Riftan believes Maxi wanted him to dissappear and Maxi was shocked when he said it.

    I agree with you and the more I think about it the more I feel that no other RDK but Riftan and maybe young knights like Yuri and Garrow are participating in the tournament.

    I'd prefer it too!

    I can also imagine a final with Sejour x Riftan. It is true that Sejour has been defeated by Riftan in the past but since then many years have passed by. Could it be that Yuri defeats Richt and then has to face Sejour? Just a theory.

    Little correction: they've been together for almost 1 year and a half: Maxi arrived to Anatol for the 1st time in Autumn and left for the WT in spring, but not the first spring because we all know she went to the spring festival in that occasion while she left for WT when her second spring festival was about to start.

    Hope KSJ will describe the duel while it's happening!

    Correct, I agreed with you and I just reread the manhwa chapter to be 100% sure.
