rant... names are withheld to protect the innocent  
grrr. why do they assume that no one told her, told her the nature and means of his revenge? the fact that the whole town would have known, the people she did business with, the places she worked at would have heard, would likely have participated in 'her' funeral procession and the burial of what was assumed to be her body. when she was rescued i'm sure she would have noticed that more than a few of the townsfolk in the marketplace looking at her with terror (like they'd seen a ghost) and making whatever gestures with their hands to ward off evil. why do they assume that all this would go unnoticed by the girl? i would assume that her interrogation would be demanding, loud and painful for all of those who didn't tell her to begin with.

there are so so many fan fictions that i have read in this fandom that use the same premise, that no one tells her what really happened and she merely believes she'd been kidnapped. surely her kidnapper would have bragged, someone would have told her on the way home so she would understand why people were acting so strangely when they saw her.... but NO!!  no one tells her and they all insist that it is the responsibility of the one who was hurt most by her 'death' so that he could relive the anguish and suffering all over again. GRRR.

AGREED. Someone needs to tell her ASAP, or at the very least as soon as they get back to the dojo because, HELLO, people think she's dead. You don't see dead people walking around the streets as if nothing was wrong.
That they wouldn't tell her about Rakuninmura, fine. This IS Kenshin's story to tell. But the true plan?
Plus they must all be giving her looks of "oh GOD she really is alive :'D" Even that would be weird to her. She knows them and is not dumb, she'd notice!
*GRRR's right along with you*
