An Understated Dominance Chapter 1794 by Marina Vittori

Meanwhile, at the castle gates, Julius and his entourage were walking out in haste. After they left the castle, Everett spoke up, “Grand General Rhys, Eloise, and her son are truly ungrateful. Are we simply going to let this matter slide?”

“Of course not, but we can’t act too overtly either. Most commanders of the Black Dragon Army are loyal to the monarchy.

“It won’t be advantageous for us to start a conflict,” Julius replied, his eyes narrowing.

“Then, what should we do?” Everett asked again.

“Since we can’t make a move openly, we’ll apply pressure on them discreetly.

Julius stated meaningfully, “Once turmoil erupts in West Lucozia, and the monarchy faces imminent danger, they’ll naturally realize who’s the true pillar of support for the monarchy!”

“I understand! I’ll arrange for people to stir up trouble immediately. When the people’s grievances peak and the monarchy can’t manage, you’ll emerge as their savior.

“At that moment, West Lucozia’s citizens will be grateful, naturally electing you as the new Prince of West Lucozia!” Everett caught on swiftly.

“Not bad, you’re pretty smart. When I ascend to the throne, the position of Grand General of the Iron Stallion Cavalry will be yours.” Julius nodded with a smile.

Everett’s face brightened. “Thank you, Grand General Rhys!”

“Go ahead and take care of it. The sooner, the better. Make sure not to leave any traces,” Julius instructed.

“No problem! I’ll make sure to handle things with finesse.” Everett saluted and left promptly.

“Grand General Rhys, merely causing a disturbance might not be sufficient to shake the monarchy’s foundation. We need something impactful,” Shane reminded him.

“I’m well aware of that.” Julius nodded.

“I’ve been in the shadows for many years, cultivating a network of confidants. Almost half of the Eight Great Sovereigns are my people. Once I issue the order, they will rise without hesitation to assist me.”

“Seems like you’ve made early preparations. Forgive me for worrying too much.” Shane chuckled.

“No need to worry. Once I ascend to the throne, you won’t be overlooked,” Julius said with a smile.

“Thank you, Grand Gene-Oh, that’s not right. I should address you as Prince of West Lucozia now,” Shane corrected.

Julius laughed joyfully at Shane’s words.

“After enduring for 20 years, it’s finally my turn to ascend to the throne!” Julius was in high spirits, exuding confidence.

He believed in his ability to take on such a significant role since he possessed both literary and military talents. However, he had long been overshadowed by Rufus.

With Rufus gone, he saw no competition to claim the throne. He was determined to seize it no matter what!

Time passed swiftly, and night descended gradually upon the West Lucozian castle halls, wrapping them in an unusual silence.

Eloise, Austin, and a group of monarchy members lingered in the funeral hall, their hearts heavy with grief.

Throughout the day, the castle witnessed a continuous stream of visitors. From influential figures like Julius to modest officials, they paid their respects one after another.

Despite Eloise’s orders to keep Rufus’ demise a secret, news of the tragedy managed to circulate. Officials of all ranks were already aware of what had happened.

For a while, the entire bureaucratic landscape of West Lucozia was filled with an air of uncertainty and anxiety.

The passing of the Prince of West Lucozia, coupled with the absence of a clear successor, cast uncertainty over the future.

Even in the event of a new Prince’s ascent, there was a likelihood of the cards reshuffling, and the very foundation they had diligently laid out would be at risk of crumbling.

Panic and fear consumed them. How could they remain unaffected?

While many visitors conveyed condolences, their underlying motive was to gauge the political climate.

If the situation were indeed taking a turn for the worse, they would have to take a side as soon as possible.

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?
