An Understated Dominance Chapter 1787 by Marina Vittori

“Alright, I’ll set you up with a guard’s identity. But before you head in, you’ll need to change your appearance,” Rodrigo finally conceded.

Though it came with some risk, it was better than doing nothing. At noon, inside West Lucozia Castle, news of Rufus’s death had been sealed off.

But many officials still gathered upon hearing it. Some came to offer condolences with heavy hearts, while others had different motives.

“The Grand General of the Supreme State has arrived!”

“The Grand General of the Sentinel has arrived!”

Two shouts echoed from the entrance. And two middle-aged men in combat gear, each leading a troop of soldiers with menacing swords at their waists, swaggered in. These soldiers looked fierce and had an evil glint in their eyes.

Everett Caide and Shane Gilby, holding the ranks of Grand General of the Supreme State and Grand General of the Sentinel, respectively, entered grandiosity.

“Generals, you must disarm before entering the castle,” a castle guard told Everett and Shane, bowing respectfully.

“Humph! I’ve never taken off my combat gear when going out. Get lost!” Everett sneered.

“General Caide, it’s a rule of the castle. Please comply,” the castle guard insisted.

“Rule? Screw your rules!” He slapped the guard’s face, scoffing, “Who do you think you are? Daring to use rules to suppress me? Are you tired of living?”

“General Caide, I am just following orders.” the castle guard stood firm.

“Quit the damn nonsense. Get out of my way, or I’ll chop off your head!” Everett drew his sword, holding it at the guard’s neck, looking extremely domineering.

“Even if you chop off my head, you still have to follow the rules.” The castle guard remained unyielding.

“You damn dog! I bet you won’t give up until you see the gallows!” Everett was enraged. He raised his sword and slashed at the guard’s arm.


A sharp rebuke echoed, and Eloise, dressed in simple black attire, accompanied by Jaxon and others, rushed over.

“Everett! How dare you draw your sword in the castle? Have you no respect for the castle rules?” Eloise rebuked angrily.

“Your Highness.” Everett quickly sheathed his sword, bowing slightly, and then forced a smile.

“Your Highness, I was just joking. How could I actually intend harm?”

“Joking?” She snorted, “If I had arrived a moment later, that guard’s arm might already be severed!”

“Your Highness, I was just teasing this young fellow. I had no intention of hurting him.” Everett grinned insincerely.

“Yeah, Your Highness, Everett here has a peculiar temperament. Please don’t take it to heart,” Shane, who had been watching from the sidelines, finally spoke up.

“General Gilby is here too.”

Eloise glanced around, coldly saying, Two generals, clad in combat gear, armed with swords, brazenly broke into the castle. Are you planning a rebellion?”

With this statement, Everett and Shane’s expressions instantly changed.

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?
