An Understated Dominance Chapter 1795 by Marina Vittori

That was the only way for the officials to maintain their current positions. Presently, the only person most qualified, capable, and powerful enough to succeed the Prince of West Lucozia was the Grand General of the Iron Stallion Cavalry, Julius Rhys.

Firstly, being a Rhys, Julius was a legitimate member of the royal family, making his claim for the throne unquestionable.

Secondly, as the Grand General of the Iron Stallion Cavalry, Julius commanded half of West Lucozia’s military forces, wielding significant power.

Thirdly, with years of accumulated strength, Julius possessed ample influence, prestige, and accomplishments to ascend to the throne. It wasn’t an exaggeration to claim that everyone expected Julius to succeed Rufus.

Right after offering their condolences, many officials rushed to the Grand General’s residence to pledge their loyalty.

These actions naturally didn’t escape the monarchy’s attention, but Eloise was in no state of mind to concern herself with such matters.

“Mom, you’ve been here all day. You should go back to your room and rest. Don’t overexert yourself,” Austin reminded her after seeing her worried and tired expression.

“Your father just passed away. How can I think of resting?” Eloise shook her head.

“Exactly! Because Father passed away, you should take better care of yourself.

“The monarchy is in turmoil and needs you, the princess, to take on the responsibilities. You absolutely cannot fall ill!” Austin advised sternly.

“But-” Eloise wanted to say more, but Austin interrupted her.

“Mom! Listen to me just this one time! Go back to your room and rest. You can come back tomorrow morning.”

Before Eloise could respond, Austin called for two female attendants and instructed, “Both of you, escort my mother back home and take good care of her.”

“Yes, Your Highness.” The attendants bowed, then helped Eloise up. Eloise stumbled as she got up since her legs had grown numb from sitting too long.

“Austin, you need to take good care of yourself too. Be careful,” Eloise cautioned.

“Don’t worry, I know what to do.” Austin nodded.

After seeing his mother off, he turned to the group behind him and instructed, “You should all head back as well. I’m going to stay back and keep watch here myself.”

The group looked at each other, uncertain of what to do.

Austin swept them a cold glance. ”

What? You’re not going to listen to me?

The group exchanged silent glances again before excusing themselves. Soon, only Austin and the monarchy’s guards were left in the funeral hall.

“Hey, you up there on the roof. You’ve been hiding up there for quite some time now. Don’t you think it’s time to show yourself?” Austin suddenly said.

All he heard was silence. There was no response.

“What? Do you want my men to bring you down forcefully?” Austin spoke again.

A few seconds later, a sudden breeze swept through the funeral hall, and a man dressed in a guard’s attire materialized in the hall.

“I didn’t think you’d be so perceptive. You actually noticed my presence.” The man was somewhat surprised.

“Who are you? You’ve got nerve infiltrating the castle.” Austin narrowed his eyes, his hand resting on his sword’s hilt.

His personal guards who were beside him became instantly vigilant, shooting fierce glances at Dustin.

Instead of speaking, the man took off his mask. Upon seeing the man’s face, Austin’s eyes widened, registering a look of astonishment.

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?
