An Understated Dominance Chapter 1833 by Marina Vittori

“No way! This is too risky!”

Upon witnessing Dustin’s inclination for a dangerous undertaking, Austin swiftly stepped in to stop his brother.

Austin acknowledged Dustin’s formidable strength, but Julius had gathered a considerable number of skilled individuals. Facing multiple challenges or opponents was always challenging.

If the assassination failed, Dustin could find himself surrounded by those formidable adversaries. As the prospective Prince of West Lucozia, Austin couldn’t permit such a hazardous venture.

“Your Highness, sometimes risks must be taken. In crucial moments like this, sacrifices are inevitable,” Tyrus remarked casually. “Besides, he’s just a guard. Why are you so uptight about it?

“I said it’s not happening!” Austin almost shouted.

A formidable wave of intimidation surged, prompting Tyrus to step back in shock.

It wasn’t just Tyrus. Everyone looked at each other and was baffled. No one anticipated such a strong reaction from Austin.

Seemingly aware that he had let his emotions get the better of him, Austin took a deep breath, suppressing the turbulence within.

He calmly stated, “Uncle Tyrus, a guard’s life is as valuable as ours. We can’t let someone sacrifice themselves in vain. How can we earn the people’s trust in the future if we let such a thing happen?”

“Yes, Your Highness, you’re absolutely right.” Tyrus chuckled sheepishly, though silently. He assessed the situation and wondered if Austin had lost his mind. Tyrus couldn’t help but wonder if making such a fuss over a guard was really necessary.

“We can’t do this, can’t do that, what should we do now? Just sit around waiting to be defeated?” Wyatt sighed.

“Well, I actually have a good idea,” Elijah suddenly spoke up.

“Oh? What is it?” Eloise raised an eyebrow.

“Julius’s confidence lies in the Black Dragon Army. We can exploit that,” Elijah suggested.

He continued, “As you all know, aside from wartime, only His Highness and the Marshal’s military insignia can command the Black Dragon Army.

“Even if Julius can mobilize troops in the name of quelling unrest, the priority is still far below the Marshal’s military insignia.”

“If Your Highness wields the Marshal’s military insignia, you can find a few key generals of the Black Dragon Army overnight and persuade them to join our cause.

“In that case, Julius will lose his strongest support. Without the Black Dragon Army, he won’t pose much of a threat.”

While listening to this, Wyatt’s eyes lit up. “That makes sense! Why didn’t I think of it before?”

He added, “As long as we control the Black Dragon Army with the Marshal’s military insignia, even if Julius has extraordinary abilities, he won’t be able to stir up any trouble.”

“Oh, by the way, Your Highness, the Marshal’s military insignia should still be here, right?” Elijah suddenly asked.

“It’s here. His Highness’s military insignia is hidden in a secure place.” Eloise nodded.

“Great.” Elijah nodded. “To resolve the crisis, we need Your Highness to bring out the Marshal’s military insignia!”

“Bring out the military insignia?” Eloise frowned slightly. She had considered this before, but the Marshal’s military insignia was important.

In the past, Julius resorted to various forms of coercion and enticement, all in the pursuit of acquiring the Marshal’s military insignia.

If it was mishandled and fell into his hands, they would lose their last hope to turn the tables. In that case, he would be able to take the throne legitimately.

Even if the king intervened, it wouldn’t salvage the situation.

“Your Highness, this is our only option now,” Elijah persuaded.

“Mom, bring out the military insignia. It’s the only way to minimize unwarranted sacrifices,” Austin said solemnly.

“This…” Eloise hesitated for a moment, ultimately nodding.

She went on, “Alright, given the circumstances, we have no other choice. Please wait in the hall, everyone. I’ll go get the military insignia.”

She knew that, despite the risk involved, avoiding unnecessary conflict was the best option.

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?
