An Understated Dominance Chapter 1839 by Marina Vittori

“Your Highness-”

Wyatt, standing behind, was about to speak, but Eloise raised her hand to stop him.

“Oh? Is that so?” Julius smirked slightly, showing some interest. “Your Highness, are you here to negotiate with me?”

“That’s right.” She was straightforward. “As long as you agree to three things, we will all support you as the prince. We will ensure you ascend without a worry in sight.”

“Your Highness, even without your support, I can still become a prince. So, what qualifications do you have to negotiate terms with me?” He grinned slyly.

“Grand General Rhys, I believe you are someone who values your reputation. Smoothly ascending to the throne without any opposition, isn’t that preferable?” she stated.

“Fine, I’ll give Your Highness some respect and hear what conditions you propose.” Julius chuckled.

He was in a winning position now. It wouldn’t hurt to agree if he could avoid some trouble by agreeing to a few conditions, provided these conditions weren’t excessively demanding.

“First condition: once you ascend the throne, you must treat all the civilians and soldiers well. West Lucozia has come a long way to reach today. You must cherish the people,” Eloise said solemnly.

“No problem.” He nodded and said, ” Once I’m crowned, I will bestow favors and work for the welfare of West Lucozia.”

A new prince needed to win hearts, so it was necessary to provide benefits. Even without her mentioning it, he would do it. Thus, he readily agreed to this condition.

“The second condition is that you should show mercy and not pursue the crimes of the affiliated forces of the castle. They were just following orders. “She looked at the three sovereigns and some castle officers behind her.

These people had served the castle loyally, and she felt responsible for protecting them.

“Accepted.” Julius nodded again. “As long as they repent and turn over a new leaf, I promise not to pursue their crimes.”

“Thank you, Grand General Rhys.” Eloise nodded and continued, “My third condition is to allow my son and me to return to Oakvale. I promise that from then on, we will never set foot in West Lucozia again.”

“Return to Oakvale?” Julius squinted his eyes and said, “Your Highness, if you want to go back, I won’t stop you. In fact, I’ll even send someone to escort you. But, as for Austin, that’s a different story.”

“Why?” She frowned. She was willing to sacrifice everything for the safety of her son.

“Your Highness, are you truly clueless or pretending to be ignorant?” he said casually. He went on, “What’s Austin’s identity? Everyone knows he’s the son of the prince of West Lucozia. In terms of bloodline, he’s even stronger than me, his uncle.

“Do you think I’d let a potential threat go freely?”

He couldn’t help but ponder that even though Austin was still young at the moment, he had already demonstrated significant potential.

Moreover, being Rufus’s descendant, there was an expectation among certain old courtiers for the son to inherit the father’s position.

While Julius was only assuming the throne now, he knew that allowing Austin to return to Oakvale, amass influence, and potentially stage a comeback would mean leaving behind a substantial threat.

So, why would Julius willingly create trouble for himself?

“Grand General Rhys, Austin is still young. He poses no threat to you.” Eloise tried to persuade him.

She added, “I assure you that after returning to Oakvale, we won’t have any other thoughts. We just want to live peacefully for the rest of our lives.”

“This is only your perspective. How can you expect anyone to believe it?” He said indifferently, “I’ll repeat it: you can go back, but Austin can’t.”

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?
