An Understated Dominance Chapter 1247 by Marina Vittori

“What?” The sudden turn of events left everyone dumbfounded. Nobody expected the Princess of Theswe to greet Landon with a slap to the face. It was a simple, brutal action without any warning nor words of exchange.

The problem was Landon was the Minister of War and an official of the first rank. She completely disregarded him by slapping him in public.

“Yo-Your Highness, why did you hit me?” Landon was dumbfounded. He felt disoriented as he clutched his throbbing cheek.

He would have flown into a rage if it had been just another ordinary aristocrat. But given that this was the Princess Consort of Theswe and Dragonmarsh’s eldest princess, he could only hold it in even if he was frustrated.

“That slap was for your ignorance. Now, kneel before you speak.” The beautiful woman spoke icily.

“Your Highness, I don’t understand. What have I done to offend you?” Landon summoned up the courage to ask.

She struck him hard across the face again. Coldly, she demanded, “Are you deaf? I told you to kneel when you talk!”

The corner of Landon’s eyes twitched. Holding in his anger, he fell to his knees with a thud. They were akin to rulers and subjects. If the Princess Consort of Theswe demanded him to kneel in public, he could only follow.

At that moment, Arthur’s smile froze, along with the rest of his group. They exchanged anxious glances.

They had initially thought the Princess of Theswe had made an appearance due to her acquaintance with Landon. But now, that wasn’t the case.

Could it be that Landon had previously offended the Princess Consort?

“Landon Hyde, do you realize what you have done wrong?” The woman questioned him imposingly.

“I do,” Landon responded obediently with his head lowered. Although puzzled, he just had to admit it to conclude this matter.

“Then why don’t you tell me what you did wrong?” the woman asked again.

“What?” Landon’s expression stiffened. He was at a loss for words. He didn’t even do anything. What could he have done wrong?

But he couldn’t say that. He could only respond submissively, “Your Highness, if you believe I have done wrong, then I have indeed done wrong.

“Hmph! You’re pretty sly. You shall continue to kneel until you’ve truly realized your mistake.”

She then turned to Rhett, Neal, and the rest of the group. She said coldly, “As for the rest of you, all of you, kneel!”

“What?” The group was taken aback. They exchanged glances, unsure of how to react. “What are you doing still standing there? Kneel down!” Landon turned around and roared at them.

“Right… Kneel!” The crowd snapped out of their daze and kneeled without hesitation. Even the Minister of War was on his knee; how could they hesitate?

The earlier high-ranking officials who were full of pride were now submissive under the Princess Consort of Theswe’s imposing presence.

“Tyler, what’s going on? Did Sir Hyde offend the Princess Consort of Theswe before?” Kate trembled as she knelt on the ground.

“How am I supposed to know?” Tyler said through gritted teeth in frustration.

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?
