An Understated Dominance Chapter 1823 by Marina Vittori

A perfunctory speech like this would only fool the public. If they thought it could fool Elijah, it’d be an insult to his intelligence.

“Elijah, let us be honest with you now that it has come to this. We’ll tell you everything.”

Ignatius took two steps forward and said seriously, “After the death of the prince, we need a new leader. Who do you think is most suitable to be the new ruler of West Lucozia?”

“What are you trying to say?” Elijah sneered.

“I believe you’re well aware that the best candidate is Julius Rhys, the Grand General of the Iron Stallion Cavalry!” Ignatius said, raising his head.

He added, “Only when the grand general becomes the ruler of West of Lucozia can we have better development, more land, and more military reserves.

“This is inevitable, and there’s nothing you can do to change it. You’re smart. I trust that you know what is in your best favor?”

“Are you saying that I should join forces with you?” Elijah wore a cryptic smile on his face.

“That’s right!” Ignatius nodded.

He said proudly, “The grand general is very skilled in martial arts, powerful, and talented. He’s more than qualified to be the new ruler.

“As the saying goes, a wise man will choose their leader. If you pledge your allegiance to the grand general, your future will be in good hands. You’ll have everything you ever wish for!”

“That’s right, Marquis of Silvercrest.” Atticus followed suit. “We used to serve the same prince, and we got along just fine. As long as we serve a wise leader, our lives will definitely become better!”

“That doesn’t sound too bad.” Elijah’s lips curved upward.

“Does that mean you’ll join us?” Ignatius’ eyes lit up when he thought he had successfully persuaded Elijah.

“Marquis of Silvercrest! You’re an excellent fighter. If you help us deal with this assassin, we’ll definitely put in a good word or two for you with the grand general,” Atticus said and pointed toward Dustin.

“Hey, hold on. Who said I agreed to join forces with you?”

With a devilish smile, Elijah added, ” I’m a very loyal servant to my country, not like you bastards. Please do not impose your corrupt thinking on my noble sentiments.”

“Elijah Valor! Don’t you know what’s good for you? How dare you go against the grand general?” Ignatius growled.

“So what?” Elijah shrugged and said indifferently, “I’ve already consulted the oracle. Julius Rhys is not fated to be the new ruler. You have placed your bets on the wrong person.”

“Nonsense! The grand general was born to be a ruler! There’s no one like him. The grand general is destined to be the new prince of West Lucozia!” Ignatius shouted with his eyes wide open.

Elijah laughed and said with a vague smile, “Are you sure you’ll succeed this time?”

“Of course!”

Ignatius puffed up his chest and said confidently, “The grand general is now fully prepared. No one will be able to go against him.

“Let me be honest with you. In addition to the 50 thousand soldiers inside the city, we have a troop of 100 thousand soldiers stationed outside the city.

“We have the whole kingdom surrounded. It doesn’t matter if you can fly. You won’t be able to make any difference!”

“Is that so? If you’re this invincible, why are you in a ditch now?” Elijah laughed.

“We underestimated our enemy and fell into their trap. But it’s not a big deal. It won’t change the final outcome, “Ignatius said.

He continued, “Elijah Valor, if you know what’s good for you, you should help the grand general ascend to the throne together with us. As such, you’ll get to enjoy the riches with us.”

Then, he threatened in a low voice, “If not, I’m afraid that you’ll suffer a terrible fate!”

“A terrible fate?” Elijah suddenly burst out laughing.

“Oh, Ignatius. You’re already dead meat! And yet, here you are, still spewing bullshit. I’m not sure if you can call this confidence or foolishness.

“Let me tell you a cruel truth. The Southern Four Sovereigns have already formed an alliance, and we have gathered a lot of loyal servants of the country.

“As we speak, your troops outside the city have been surrounded, and they have already surrendered. Death is the only thing waiting for people like you!”

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?
