An Understated Dominance Chapter 1846 by Marina Vittori

Julius found himself thoroughly unsettled. Despite his meticulous planning and calculated moves, Rufus’s return alive was an unforeseen twist he found difficult to accept.

In fact, it wasn’t Julius alone who was unsettled. Elijah and the other generals were equally stunned, their faces drained of color.

The only reason they found the courage to join Julius in his rebellion was due to Rufus’ death. They would never have dreamed of committing such treasonous acts if Rufus had been alive.

“What a lively day. There’s so many familiar faces in the crowd,” Rufus remarked as he took his time walking out of the gates.

The crowd instinctively made way for him.

“Rufus! But you-!” Eloise struggled to find words, her expression a mix of bewilderment and disbelief.

She had personally witnessed Rufus being impaled through the chest with a sword and saw him take his last breath. She had even arranged his funeral. She couldn’t understand how a dead man could come back to life!

“Don’t worry. I’m not a ghost,” Rufus assured with a faint smile.

“The assassin’s strike nearly took my life. Fortunately, I was able to survive by protecting my heart with internal energy.”

“Rufus! Why didn’t you inform us earlier? Do you realize how heartbroken we were?” Eloise’s eyes welled up with tears.

After Rufus’ supposed death, she had endured profound grief. Yet, she had to restrain her emotions for the sake of the monarchy.

As she arranged his funeral, she still had to navigate the world of politics and guard against those with ambitious intentions.

“Eloise, thank you for your hard work over the past few days.” Rufus reached out to wipe away her tears.

He then smiled and said, “The reason I faked my death was to take the opportunity to recover from my injuries. On the other hand, I also wanted to see if chaos would ensue after my death.”

As he said this, his gaze suddenly shifted over to Julius and his cohorts. ” Unfortunately, things did not unfold in the right direction. Some of you have truly disappointed me.”

After the attempt on his life, Rufus decided to turn the tables and fake his death to gauge the reactions of those around him.

Unexpectedly, the monarchy underwent a significant transformation in just a few days. And at the same time, it revealed the true colors of those harboring sinister motives.

Given the current circumstances, he had no choice but to reveal himself and put an end to the unfolding drama.

“Dad! I’m glad you’re okay!” Austin’s initial shock transformed into excitement.

He then reported, “While you were recovering from your injuries, Julius had joined forces with the Northern Four Sovereigns and started a rebellion.

“He even seized the Marshal’s military insignia. His actions are audacious!”

“I’m already aware.” Rufus nodded and gazed calmly at Julius.

“Julius, as the Grand General of the Iron Stallion Cavalry, you wield unparalleled authority. Was that not enough to satisfy your ambitions?

“Why did you stray down this misguided path? Do you know how many lives have been lost because of your actions?”

Julius’ face darkened, and he remained silent. Whether it was due to nervousness or fear, his body trembled slightly. And the sword in his hand wobbled.

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?
