An Understated Dominance Chapter 1835 by Marina Vittori

Lincon was the first to react. “Quick! Go after the military insignia!” he shouted. Eloise immediately commanded, “Go after it!”

Jaxon drew his sword abruptly. He led a squad of Draken Guardians in the direction where Elijah disappeared, racing after him.

“How could this happen?” Austin was bewildered, standing frozen, unsure of what to do. He hadn’t expected Elijah to snatch the military insignia, so he was completely unprepared. By the time he realized it, Elijah had already made a swift escape.

“Your Highness, Elijah is likely working for Julius,” Lincon explained with a grave tone.

He added, “His unwavering support for you and helping the castle maintain order was just a ploy to make you drop your guard. When the time was right, he’d seize the military insignia and push us into a corner.”

“Damn it! I never thought Elijah would be a traitor. How despicable!” Wyatt fumed.

“No wonder he kept suggesting using the military insignia to control the Black Dragon Army against Julius. He was laying the groundwork to snatch it. This guy is truly cunning!” Tyrus angrily exclaimed.

“If we can’t retrieve the military insignia and it falls into Julius’ hands, then we’re completely defeated!”

Eloise frowned. Her expression turned grim.

The Marshal’s military insignia determined the command of the Black Dragon Army. In the past, Julius used to pull strings and exert his influence to command the Black Dragon Army.

With the military insignia, he could openly order the entire army. In the face of 50 thousand troops at the city gates, no one across West Lucozia and beyond would be able to resist.

“Mom, I’m sorry. It’s all my fault. If I had been more careful, this might not have happened.” Austin looked guilty. After all, losing the military insignia from his hands was a mistake for which he felt responsible.

“This has nothing to do with you. Elijah hid his true nature too well. None of us anticipated that he would be a traitor.” Eloise managed with a forced smile.

“I’ll go after him right now. I’ll definitely retrieve the military insignia! “He unsheathed his sword, ready to dash outside.

“Wait!” Lincon immediately stood in front of Austin. He said sternly, “Your Highness, Elijah, is exceptionally powerful. With your current strength, chasing him would be futile, and you might put yourself in danger.”

“Shouldn’t we do something rather than just sit here?” Austin frowned.

“General Steele has already gone after him. If he catches up, there’s hope. If not, we must prepare for the worst,” Lincon said solemnly.

“The worst? What do you mean?” Tyrus asked.

“If the military insignia falls into Julius ‘hands, what consequences do you think we’ll face?” Lincon asked.

“Well…” Tyrus furrowed his brow, his expression turning grim.

“We all opposed Julius. For him, we’re like thorns in his side.” Lincon looked at Austin and Eloise, his tone heavy.

He continued, “Once he takes power, we won’t escape death! As for you, Your Highnesses, while you may not lose your lives, you’ll be confined for life, never to see the light of day again!”

“If that’s the case, we might as well confront them head-on!” Wyatt declared indignantly.

“Can you take on 50 thousand Black Dragon Army soldiers?” Lincon retorted.

“What do we do then?” Wyatt frowned.

“I suggest we prepare for an escape,” Lincon said, looking at the group.

He added, “If General Steele can retrieve the military insignia, that’s the best scenario. If not, we escape the castle and West Lucozia for now and reconsider our options later.”

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?
