An Understated Dominance Chapter 1782 by Marina Vittori

“Your Highness? Your Highness! Wake up! Wake up!” Eloise, witnessing Rufus devoid of life, was plunged into inconsolable grief, wailing with profound sorrow.

The suddenness of it all caught her completely off guard. Never in her wildest dreams did she imagine Rufus would die in her arms.

Those who rushed to the scene were similarly moved to tears, for Rufus was not only the heart of the castle but also the linchpin of the entire West Lucozia.

As time passed, the dawn gradually broke, casting a somber atmosphere over the entire castle. The hall, once a place of bustling activity, was now transformed into a memorial hall adorned with white lilies.

A finely crafted black coffin took center stage, containing the peacefully laid- out Rufus in resplendent attire.

Mourners, which consisted of mostly loyal castle personnel and members of the Rhys family, dressed in mourning attire filled the hall.

Eloise, kneeling at the forefront, gazed at Rufus’s portrait with tears silently streaming down her face.

Albert, entering the hall, approached Eloise after paying his respects to Rufus. He bowed deeply.

“Your Highness, the prince’s arrangements have been completed as per your instructions. The news is sealed, and precautions are taken to prevent unnecessary panic,” he whispered.

“Have they caught the assailant?” Wiping away her tears, she now exuded a fierce determination. Witnessing her husband’s assassination, she yearned to exact revenge on the perpetrator.

“The assailant’s cultivation is formidable. Our pursuit was unsuccessful,” Albert replied.

“This is related to the Dragon Guard’s remnants. Dispatch someone to investigate immediately and bring the assassin to justice. If necessary, deploy the Black Dragon Army,” Eloise ordered.

“Understood.” He nodded and discreetly left.

“When is Austin returning?” She asked the female guard.

“Sir Austin has been conducting exercises at the border. I’ve already sent word; he should arrive by afternoon,” the guard replied softly.

“Inform everyone: the castle is on high alert. No one is allowed to leave without authorization,” Eloise commanded.

“Yes!” The guard saluted and departed.

“Your Highness, rest assured, I will avenge you!” Eloise, gazing at Rufus’s portrait, murmured before leaving the memorial.

In the castle’s garden, a fully armed contingent of castle guards led by General Steele awaited Eloise’s orders.

“General Steele, are all preparations in order?” Eloise scanned the elite force of a hundred soldiers known as the Draken Guardians.

These personal guards, cultivated within the castle, were chosen meticulously from the Black Dragon Army. Each member was not only exceptionally skilled but also unwaveringly loyal.

They were ready to sacrifice their lives for the castle without hesitation. Eloise was reluctant to deploy the Draken Guardians unless it was necessary.

“Yes, Your Highness. The Draken Guardians are assembled and ready for your command.” Jaxon lowered his head and nodded.

“The attempt on His Highness’s life was not by chance. Without internal assistance, the assassin couldn’t have infiltrated the castle undetected.

“The crisis within the castle remains unresolved. We must be vigilant!” Eloise declared.

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?
