An Understated Dominance Chapter 1773 by Marina Vittori

Rufus’s resolute warning cleaved through the air. “I’m well aware of your ties with Ambrose, but today’s events won’t find an effortless path to absolution.”

Standing unwaveringly beside Rufus, Eloise spoke with resolute conviction, ” When both the powerful and the humble defy the law, consequences must be confronted.

“The Vern and Linden families have perpetrated numerous wrongs and should face severe punishment.”

Visibly angered, Rufus hinted that pleading wouldn’t sway him at this moment. Eloise, astute to the gravity of the situation, chose her words judiciously.

“You know precisely what actions are necessary,” she stated firmly. Rufus nodded and chose to remain in contemplative silence. At that very moment, a guard entered, bowing respectfully. “Your Highness, Mr. Vern has arrived.”

“Hmph! Bring him in!” Rufus ordered with an icy demeanor. The guard promptly responded with a curt “yes” and left.

Shortly after that, the guard silently escorted the compliant Reuben into the room. A subtle unease washed over him as he laid eyes on Eloise and Albert.

Eloise, bearing the title of princess consort, usually refrained from meddling in West Lucozia’s military affairs.

Albert, known as the Executioner, wielded the power of punishment within the royal enclave and was a figure dreaded by all.

“Your Highness, I’m at your service,” Reuben greeted him humbly, sensing the ominous atmosphere.

“Do you comprehend why I summoned you here late at night?” Rufus spoke coldly, his expression inscrutable.

“I have no idea. Please enlighten me, Your Highness.” Reuben, now anxious, bowed to show deference.

“See for yourself!” Rufus didn’t elaborate, tossing a letter at Reuben’s feet.

Picking up the missive, Reuben paled upon absorbing its contents. “Your Highness! This is a misunderstanding! My son is good-natured and virtuous. He wouldn’t commit such heinous acts!

“Good-natured? Virtuous? You’ve got some nerve saying that.” Rufus slammed the table, his anger palpable.

“Your Highness, I am unsure where you acquired this information, but I assure you, my son is law-abiding. This accusation is a malicious attempt to sow discord!” Reuben passionately defended his son.

“Reuben, your deceitful tactics persist. Trying to shift blame with a few words won’t suffice. Do you take me for a fool? “Rufus spoke sternly.

“Your Highness, my loyalty to you is unwavering. I wouldn’t dare deceive you. Please don’t heed the words of the schemers!” Reuben pleaded, genuinely aggrieved.

“Seriously, Reuben? I can’t believe you’re still trying to argue. You’re truly incorrigible!” Rufus scowled.

“Let me shoot it straight-the letter you’re holding? My undercover agent uncovered it through a thorough investigation! No one tipped us off. I’m fully aware of the crimes your son has committed.”

“What?” Reuben was thunderstruck and turned even paler. Assuming a rival had reported them, he hadn’t realized they were Rufus’s castle undercover agents.

In this critical moment, there was no room for excuses.

“Your Highness! My son’s misjudgment stemmed from intoxication-a brief lapse in discernment. I implore you to consider my unwavering loyalty and extend mercy to my son.” Reuben kneeled on the ground, groveling.

“Your family would have already faced extermination if not for your past loyalties.” Rufus abruptly pounded the table, startling Reuben.

Summary An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori

Dahlia Nicholson and Dustin Rhys had been married for three years. After Dahlia’s meteoric rise to success, she abandons the useless dead weight that’s Dustin, proposing divorce. Unbeknownst to her, everything she had ever achieved was only because of him.

Chapter 1 “Dustin, here is the divorce agreement prepared by Ms. Nicholson. All you need to do is sign them.” In the president’s office of the Quine Group, the secretary, Lyra Blaine, placed a piece of A4 paper on the table. A man sat opposite her, dressed in plain clothing. “Divorce? What do you mean?” Dustin Rhys was taken aback. “Do you not understand what I’m saying? Your marriage with Ms. Nicholson is over. You’re not even on the same level anymore. Your existence is nothing but a smear on the president’s reputation!” Lyra pulled no punches as she spoke. “A smear on her reputation?” Dustin frowned. “Is that how she thinks of me?” Back when they first got married, the Nicholson family was in ruinous debt. He was the one who helped them when they were at their lowest point. Now that they were rich, Dahlia Nicholson was ready to just kick him out. “Something like that.” Lyra jerked her chin toward the magazine on the table. A photo of a beautiful woman was printed on the front page. “Look at the headline on this magazine, Dustin. Ms. Nicholson’s net worth has hit one billion in the course of just three years, a feat no short of a miracle. She’s now the most desired woman in Swinton! With all this, she’s destined for greatness. But you, you’re just a regular joe. You don’t deserve her at all. I hope that you’ll see some sense and do the right thing.” When Dustin remained silent, Lyra frowned. “I know you’re not happy with this, but this is reality,” she continued. “You might have helped Ms. Nicholson when she was in trouble, but she has repaid you for everything you’ve done for her over the last three years. In fact, you’re the one who owes her now!” “Is our marriage just a business deal to her, then?” Dustin took a deep breath to suppress the emotions within. “If she wants to divorce me, let her speak to me herself.” “Ms. Nicholson is very busy. She doesn’t need to trouble herself with such trifling matters.” “Trifling matters?” Dustin was stunned. Then he laughed bitterly. “Is that so? Is divorce a trifling matter to her? She can’t even find the time to speak to me. Truly, she’s that unattainable now!” “Dustin, don’t delay this any longer.” Lyra pushed the divorce agreement toward him again. “Just sign here and you’ll get a car and a house as compensation. On top of that, you’ll also get eight million dollars. This is more than what you’ll be able to earn in your lifetime!” “Eight million dollars is a lot, but…I don’t need it. I will sign the divorce papers if she comes personally. Otherwise, I won’t sign anything,” Duston said coldly. “Don’t go too far, Dustin!” Lyra slammed her hand on the table. “Don’t say I didn’t warn you. With all her power and resources, Ms. Nicholson can divorce you easily. It’s only because she appreciates her past relationship with you that she’s allowing you to keep your dignity intact. Don’t provoke her!” “My dignity?” Dustin was a little amused by that. She didn’t even want to speak to him directly to divorce him. What kind of dignity was that? Moreover, if she really did appreciate their relationship, then why was she threatening him now?
