An Understated Dominance Chapter 1869 by Marina Vittori

“He faked his death? Is that even possible?” Reagan raised an eyebrow.

“I wouldn’t have believed it either if I didn’t see it myself.”

Julius shook his head and sighed. “All in all, we’re still lacking compared to Rufus. That’s why he managed to fool us.

“Now that my subordinates are all under his control, it’s impossible to turn the tables. Thus, I came to you for help.”

After thinking for a moment, Reagan replied, “Give me some time to think it through. You’re saying that our mission failed and that Rufus didn’t die.

“Plus, all your troops have been captured, leaving you with no way out.”

“You’re correct. That’s about what happened.” Julius nodded.

“Honestly, I’m a bit curious. If the mission failed and all your men were captured, how did you manage to get away?” Reagan asked.

“To be honest, I pretended to surrender just to get away,” Julius replied.

“Pretended to surrender? What do you mean?” Reagan’s curiosity was piqued.

“I hope you won’t mind if I say this.”

After reorganizing his thoughts, Julius continued, “I pretended to defect to Rufus and the others, lying that I could help them capture you.

“As they were desperate to apprehend you, they released me to lure you.”

Reagan smiled indifferently. “Oh. Is that so? It turns out that your meeting with me was a trap. Did Rufus set this up?”

“That was the plan at first. However, I knew that aligning with Dragon Guard was the best choice now that West Lucozian monarchy was doomed.

“Thus, I took the opportunity to fool them without revealing any crucial information,” Julius promised.

“So that’s what happened.” Reagan nodded before continuing, “However, Rufus is extremely cunning. Will he really believe you?”

“He naturally didn’t believe me. That’s why he poisoned me as a threat. If I didn’t do as he said, I’d probably die within three days.” Julius sighed.

“He poisoned you? I’m quite skilled in medicine. Can you let me take a look?” Reagan stretched out his hand and said.

“Sure.” Julius didn’t hesitate to put his hand on the table. Reagan checked Julius’ pulse with his finger. After a few seconds, the former nodded. “Your body does seem a bit weird.

“It seems like you’ve been poisoned by parasitic poison. Moreover, the person who poisoned you is very skilled; ordinary people cannot undo this.”

Julius’ eyelids twitched. “Parasitic poison? Sir Judd, do you know how to get rid of it?”

If Reagan knew how to neutralize the poison, Julius had nothing to worry about.

“I could neutralize normal poison without a problem. However, I don’t specialize in this kind of parasitic poison.

“Even if I forcefully use my cultivation to treat it, the success rate is only about 30 percent,” Reagan said honestly.

“What should I do? Am I dead meat?” Julius was dreadful.

“No need to worry. I’ll definitely find a way to cure you. We’re allies, after all.”

Reagan smiled and added, “The Mystic Arts Order is the most knowledgeable in parasitic poison. I can arrange for someone to contact the Mystic Arts Order.

“We’ll let a skilled person cure you. The price doesn’t matter.”

“That’s great! Thank you!” Julius was ecstatic as he quickly thanked him.

“You’re too formal. We’re already acquaintances. Now that we’re also on the same side, how could I possibly stand by without trying to help?”

Reagan gestured to Cinna and ordered, “Cinna, send a capable subordinate to the Mystic Arts Order. No matter what price we have to pay, make sure to bring back an expert in antidotes!”

“Yes, sir!” Cinna answered before leaving.

“Grand General Rhys, you should stay here and rest. I’ll definitely get rid of your poison within three days,” Reagan promised.

“Thank you, Mr. Judd.” Julius smiled.

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?
