How the frick-frack would he even find her though?!

Maybe they share the same credit card info Midori did use her card to take money out of the atm. Tazune could have looked at the transaction statements.. and found the location that way.. makes sense to me

I hope it's something like that, but I'm a bit worried about Maki's behavior in this chapter. She wasn't around for Midori's "we're lovers" proclamation, she was absolutely stunned at the "I wanna spend my life by your side" proposal. And given her behavior, I get the sense that she was just waiting for the dream to end and for Midori to go back to Tazune. Given that, she might have messaged or called Tazune herself, thinking she could smooth things over for Midori. That "I have to go back for my phone" bit just feels a little suspicious to me.

I could be wrong, but the issue we have at this point is that we've seen how Midori is coming around to the realization that yes, she actually CAN choose to be with the girl she loves instead of marrying the abusive jackass, but Maki doesn't know any of that. She still loves her, but she has no faith that Midori will stay with her. So I think that's the problem that defines our climax, here.

the solution is easier.i think it's through midori's mother. midori probably answered to her question when she asked "where are you?". so the mother was probably the one to tell him. remember that is a detail that the author wouldn't have shown us if it wasn't actually relevant.

Imho that guy found Midori either through ATM records or with Doumyou's help. The latter is more likely. Remember how, last time they were together, he asked her to do something for him? I suspect he made her call Midori to get the info. Doumyou probably played the "worried friend" card and tricked Midori into revealing her whereabouts.

It had never occurred to me, until I read some of the comments, that Maki could have called Tazune. Sure, the whole "I forgot my phone" scene looks suspicious... but, the way I see things, it was just a means to get Maki out of the pic for a few minutes, so that Midori could have a tête à tête with the inn manager. There's no way in hell Maki would call Tazune to ask him to take Midori back.

(I mean, if Tazune was a nice guy and Midori was simply going through some sexual confusion after a lesbian fling, there is a chance Maki could have decided to push Midori back into her husband's arms for her own good... but Tazune is a woman-beater and a total piece of garbage, and Maki would have to be crazier than a tree full of owls to think Midori can be happy with a man like him.)

"I never mentioned it, but that article got me really interested in Twelve Kingdoms."

Excellent! Hope you enjoy it. It's one of my favorites.

(Not from a yuri POV though, except in fanfic. It is a strikingly sexless franchise. Even the art on danbooru was respectful and sedate, tending to elaborate clothes.)

The conflict makes no sense since the two fiancés don't actually care about each other and only decided to get married to save face. She accidently got impregnated by a guy and he accidently impregnated a chick he only grip the goblin to in another story.

That's why this conflict on them being unfaithful and uncaring toward each other feels extremely forced. Why tell me how and why they don't care for each other and then proceed to treat every other interaction as if they do? They're only a couple in name so why should sorry or want something bad to happen to either of them if they cheat on each other?

Because this isn’t a court of law judging correct behavior, or a “Which Character Do You Want to Be Friends With?” reality show, but a story, with Maki and Midori as the main couple.

Midori didn’t get married to “save face”—she got married because that’s what she thought her life trajectory was supposed to be according to the society she lives in. That’s why she left Maki in the first place, long before she met Tazune.

Tazune obviously doesn’t “care for” Midori in any recognizable sense of the word—he’s just abusive and controlling because of what he perceived as past humiliations.

That anybody reads this story as treating “each interaction” between Tazune and Midori as if “they care for each other” makes me despair of basic public literacy.

Damn. I always appreciate Blastaar for saying the things I'm thinking whenever I'm in the comments.

Problem is, Tazune is a big strong guy, and he looks very fit. Otoh, Maki is woefully out of shape and frankly I don't think she has too much of a chance in a fistfight against Tazune.

If things turn violent, I sure hope she finds a lead pipe nearby at hand.

I mean she was assuming that Midori was going to go back on her own, but she also knows now that Tazune can get violent when he's upset, and she knows Maki has been ignoring his calls and texts. My thinking was that she might have called him to try and give him some kind of story that would abate his temper, Like "Hey, Midori asked me to call because her cell doesn't get reception here in (current location) but she isn't ignoring you so don't be mad at her she's coming home soon." Like her goal was just to make sure he didn't have a violent outburst at her when she inevitably returned. In this hypothetical situation, she wouldn't have expected him to come find them based on her story, she just would have been trying to keep him from getting mad at Midori.

She wasn't considering the possibility that Midori was really seriously considering leaving Tazune for her, which is why when Midori actually proposes exactly that, she's stupified.

Even if you have two people half the mass of the aggressor, they’d have a 66% chance of kicking the bully’s ass. I mean, how do you think wolves manage to take down prey that’s ten times the mass of a single wolf?

See, I just don't think that makes any sense. Hell Maki's smart, she sniffed Tazune was bad shit the second she met him basically. She knows Tazune got violent with Midori, I imagine she's smart enough to know trying to abate his anger or w/e wouldn't work either, especially considering (And I wouldn't be surprised if Maki and Midori talked details off page) Tazune smacked her for literally nothing. Like feeling a little out of it because you kind of expect to wake up from a nice time doesn't mean you're gonna call your girlfriend's abuser to try and hopefully chill him out or w/e. Plus you'd think she'd bring it up or something after Midori kind of cemented "No I really, really want to be with you. But what to be do about him?"

That said, I can't imagine a fight happening. Last thing Tazune would wanna do is to get himself in real deep trouble assaulting his ex fiancee and then Maki lmao. He's an asshole and a creep, but him hitting Midori was the mask slipping imho rather than an established go to. Would he resort to violence in the future? Yeah, I'd think so. In a public place with a pregnant woman and her friend? He'd have to be as stupid as a brick to do that.

Like feeling a little out of it because you kind of expect to wake up from a nice time doesn't mean you're gonna call your girlfriend's abuser to try and hopefully chill him out or w/e.

I don't get why you think that. First of all, whether it's likely to work or not, people who are abused often do work to avoid arousing the anger of their abuser, and people who are supporting the abused will help them make excuses. Tazune isn't old faithful, he doesn't explode every 90 minutes no matter what happens. He loses his temper when triggered. If a white lie could keep him from getting mad this one time, leading to possibly one less violent encounter, why not at least try?

Maki doesn't know that Tazune suspects infidelity or that he's seen a picture of them kissing. As far as she knows, he's just antsy because he hasn't heard from his fiancee. If she provides a reasonable excuse, acted convincingly, there's nothing for him to be mad about. She could even butter up his ego in the process. Being smart doesn't just mean she sees through him, it also could mean she can figure out how to play him.

Plus you'd think she'd bring it up or something after Midori kind of cemented "No I really, really want to be with you. But what to be do about him?"

I don't think we can speculate on what she'd bring up, because we know nothing about the flow of conversation after that moment of confession, or even how long it's been. For all we know she confessed a few feet from the train station, they spent a bunch of time buying their tickets and stuff, and they just barely picked the topic back up. But why would she need to mention it? If my idea is corrrect, then calling him is something she did because she thought Midori was going back to him. If she's -not-, then it doesn't matter what he thinks of the nature of their trip, or if he thought Midori was ignoring him or not, and so it doesn't matter if Midori knows about the call or not. She clearly didn't forsee him using the information to track them down, Plus, mentioning it means admitting that she had no faith in Midori's feelings for her before the most recent proposal. That could hurt Midori, or start a fight, maybe even cool Midori's heels on the whole "spend my life with you" thing. I still doubt Maki's confidence in Midori's feelings is rock solid. She's been hurt before.

So I don't think it's unreasonable to think that she might not have gotten to mentioning it, or even that she's deliberately procrastinating about mentioning it.

That said, I can't imagine a fight happening. Last thing Tazune would wanna do is to get himself in real deep trouble assaulting his ex fiancee and then Maki lmao. He's an asshole and a creep, but him hitting Midori was the mask slipping imho rather than an established go to. Would he resort to violence in the future? Yeah, I'd think so. In a public place with a pregnant woman and her friend? He'd have to be as stupid as a brick to do that.

Yeah, guys like Tazune are more likely to firmly hold their fiancee's arm while cordially excusing them both from the public eye, then beating the shit out of her at home.

I mean, that's not really comforting, the situation is still dangerous, but I mean it's unlikely anybody's getting hurled in front of a train or anything.

Oh, BTW, this is a really good point. I forgot to address it before, but it does suggest that Doumyou had some sort of role in whatever he was planning next. I think this and the ATM suggestion are both plausible explanations for his appearance as well.

I'd like to add my two cents: the happy time the two MCs enjoyed together at the hot spring town was like a vacation from real life issues... and it wouldn't be at all unreasonable for Maki to think that, after the vacation's over, there is a good chance that Midori will return to the father of her child. Even if he's a nasty guy who can even go dv on occasion.

I mean, it's only at the end of chapter 13 that Midori states plainly that she wants to be with Maki forever. If you look at it from Maki's pov, up to that moment, Midori's plans for the future weren't clearly determined at all. Perhaps running away with Maki, and squandering all the money saved for the wedding, was just a small revenge on Tazune before returning to him? Because the social, familiar & economic pressures on a pregnant woman to get hitched to the man who fathered the baby are frigging enormous. Idk if you've read Happy Sugar Life, but if you have you should remember Shio's mom and how she got pregnant — and how the two families dealt with the problem.

I'd say we just need to look at the face Maki makes when Midori proposes to realize that it wasn't the development she was expecting. Gosh I wish they had had more time to talk about their future together before the great Assholio showed up. (But at least Midori did propose before he came: now Maki's pessimistic mood has been lifted and she can face him with a clear conscience. It really was a close one, wasn't it?)

Sadly, elementary-equivalent grade school art teachers aren't there to foster actual artistic ideas, just the basics and get the job done. I still have memories from 4th grade where the assignment was "draw a town" and I wanted dinosaur shaped houses, even made it work with cutaway presentations, and the teacher was not amused.

Yeah, but my point is, it's not like the kid drew a dog with deer antlers or a person with three arms.

Pink skies are a thing that happens. All the time. It isn't a weird artistic choice, it's literally just the kid depicting a different time of day.

in the end, i just hope her husband won't become another jerk just like in other drama yuri and hope they all get happy ending

. . . The husband is physically and emotionally abusive. if you hope he "won't become another jerk" that ship has SAILED. It has sailed so far it is on the other side of the planet. I hope you're commenting before having read the whole thing, because if you're up to date on this and you still aren't convinced he's a jerk, you are an -awful- judge of character.

You can hope that maybe he'll stop being a jerk.

More likely might be realizing that neither of them wants the marriage anymore -- at least, wasn't he chivvied in due to her pregnancy? -- and agreeing to bail, to go be a jerk to the other woman.

Yeah, I don't see it being that easy. Guys like him are ruled by ego, and the idea that she could leave him, and for another woman no less, would be a direct injury to his pride. He probably regards both Midori and the child as his property, and even if he treats them like shit, he's not gonna let somebody take "what's his". This is gonna get ugly before it gets better for sure.
