An Understated Dominance Chapter 1771 by Marina Vittori

“Sir, it’s Mr. Aster!” The butler conveyed the report through the closed door.

“Aster?” Ambrose’s brow furrowed. ” What trouble has that boy stirred up now?”

Among his sons, Aster posed the greatest challenge when it came to keeping him in line.

“It’s not another trouble. Mr. Aster has been assaulted!” the butler hastily clarified.

“Assaulted?” Ambrose leaped out of bed upon hearing the alarming revelation. He swung open the door and demanded, “What happened? Who dared to assault my son?”

Ambrose could wrap his head around his son getting into trouble. But if his son was physically harmed, that was a line he couldn’t bear.

“The details are unclear, sir. We found Mr. Aster at the doorstep, injured. The assailant had already fled,” the butler explained.u

“Take me to him!” Concern etched Ambrose’s face as he rushed out without even donning his coat. Upon entering the estate’s infirmary with the butler, he was confronted with a grim scene.

Aster lay on the sickbed, pale and bloodied. His bones were shattered, and his limbs contorted in a grotesque manner.

“My son! Oh, my son!” Ambrose wept at the sight, initially thinking it was a mere scuffle and not expecting this level of brutality.

“Sir Linden, the doctor has examined him. Although Mr. Aster is critically injured, there’s no immediate threat to his life. It appears the assailant had attempted some form of treatment,” the butler shared.

“How could this happen? Who would do this to my son?” Ambrose’s eyes ablaze with fury as he demanded answers.

“I’ve dispatched investigators. We should have results soon.” The butler assured.

“Anyone who harms my son will pay dearly! Assemble the household troops. Be ready to apprehend the culprit at a moment’s notice!” Ambrose commanded.

“Yes, sir!” The butler promptly set the arrangements in motion.

“Hurry! Get my son to the hospital!” Ambrose issued another order. While the Linden family had private physicians, Aster’s injuries demanded comprehensive treatment available only at the hospital.

While en route to escort his son to the hospital, Ambrose received an unexpected phone call.

Initially irritated, his expression changed upon seeing the caller ID- Jaxon Steele, the captain of the prince’s royal guard.

Despite being a mere captain of the royal guard, the words he conveyed held the weight of the highest authority in West Lucozia.

Regardless of one’s rank-be it a governor, a general, or even a governor -general-everyone was obligated to show the utmost deference when in the presence of this captain.

Suppressing his emotions, Ambrose answered, “General Steele, what brings you to call at this hour?”

“Mr. Linden, the prince requests your presence at the palace,” Jaxon informed him curtly.

“Now?” Ambrose raised an eyebrow.

“Yes, immediately,” Jaxon responded.

“Very well … I’ll be there shortly.” Ambrose couldn’t refuse an invitation from the prince, especially at this hour.

He changed vehicles and headed toward the castle, leaving his concerns for Aster’s well-being behind.

In the darkened night, Reuben and Ambrose were grappling with their respective family issues. They made their way to the castle, oblivious to the intricate traps set for them.

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?
