An Understated Dominance Chapter 1770 by Marina Vittori

Russo’s countenance reflected weakness as he explained, “I don’t know… I’m not familiar with that person.

“But he’s connected to the Ashen family. He came after me to rescue a woman named Lisa Ashen.”

“Ashen family? Lisa Ashen?” Reuben’s face darkened, prompting him to issue a swift command.

“You’ve got an hour. Fetch Lisa and her family immediately. We need to extract the truth from them!”

“Yes, sir!” Acknowledging the order, the Vern family members dispersed promptly. In the heart of Celestria in West Lucozia, the Vern family commanded substantial influence.

Beyond their wealth and prosperity, Reuben, as the family patriarch, held the dual roles of city general and commander of a formidable army numbering over ten thousand. His authority, which entailed control over the lives and deaths of ordinary citizens, was unquestionable.

Seeing Russo battered and bruised, Reuben was resolute. He was determined to capture the assailant and ensure severe consequences for anyone associated with the wrongdoer.

“Russo, don’t worry. Whoever harms you will pay with their blood!” Reuben declared firmly. At that moment, a phone call demanded attention.

After noticing the caller ID, Reuben’s expression shifted to seriousness. He gestured for medical staff to attend to Russo before hastening to a corner to answer the call discreetly. Soon, a composed voice relayed, “Mr. Vern, the prince requests your presence at the castle.”

“The prince?” Reuben queried cautiously, “General Steele, why would he summon me in the dead of night? What’s the matter?”

“The prince’s intentions are beyond our speculation. Hurry up, and don’t keep the prince waiting!” the voice responded before abruptly ending the call, leaving no room for further inquiries.

Reuben held the phone, his brow furrowed in contemplation. The recent seclusion of the prince made this summon unusual.

Could it be related to some mistake he had made? It didn’t make sense. He had been diligent and hadn’t committed any errors recently. Why would the prince seek him out of nowhere?

Could it be that the prince had a different purpose, perhaps entrusting him with an important task? If so, Reuben saw an opportunity for further advancement.

Despite his son’s tragic condition, the prospect of a promotion softened the blow.

“Take care of Russo. I have urgent matters to attend to,” Reuben instructed before leaving the hospital and heading straight to the palace.

On the other side, at the Linden family’s opulent residence, Ambrose Linden was abruptly awakened by insistent knocking.

“What is it?” Ambrose growled impatiently. As he was turning 60 years old, his commitment to a regimen of retiring early and rising with the dawn was an integral part of his wellness strategy.

He despised being disturbed during his sleep. If there wasn’t a pressing matter, the person responsible for waking him might receive a sound thrashing.

“Sir Linden! Something terrible has happened to the young master!” The panicked voice of the butler reached Ambrose.

“Young master? Which one?” Ambrose mumbled, struggling to comprehend fully.

He had three sons, each causing their fair share of trouble. He often found himself dealing with the consequences of their actions.

Fortunately, Ambrose was the current regional governor and wielded substantial influence. With the princess supporting him, he effectively dominated the political landscape throughout West Lucozia.

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?
