An Understated Dominance Chapter 1788 by Marina Vittori

Everett’s and Shane’s expressions instantly changed at those words. Their initial intention to display authority now clashed with Eloise’s unexpected assertiveness, immediately casting them as rebels.

The potential consequences of such a charge were severe, and leaving the castle gates alive would be doubtful.

Shane hastened to explain, “Your Highness, please don’t joke. It’s an exaggeration to call it a rebellion. Even if you give us the courage, we wouldn’t dare undertake such a thing!”

“Exactly, our loyalty to His Highness has always been unwavering. Why would we commit treason?” Everett added.

Though both harbored a hint of ambition, it was clear they were not ready to reveal it openly. At least, the timing wasn’t right.

“If you’re not planning a rebellion, why come armed? Don’t you understand the rules?” Eloise scolded mercilessly.

They were just two second-rate generals, relying on military power yet daring to act insolently within the castle. When His Highness was alive, would they have dared to be so audacious?

“Oh! My apologies. I forgot about the castle rules.” Everett chuckled, then removed his gear and handed his sword to the castle guard.

He went on, “We came in a hurry and didn’t think much. It was an oversight, but Your Highness has a big heart, and I believe you won’t mind.”

“We rushed here and didn’t consider much. It was unintentional, Your Highness, and I believe you won’t hold it against us.” Shane smiled, promptly removing his gear and sword.

Eloise’s expression slightly eased at their actions, though her tone remained cold. “Why did the two generals suddenly come? What is the purpose?”

“We heard about the attempt on His Highness’s life, so we came to inquire after his health.” Shane pretended to be concerned.

“Your information is accurate but late, “Eloise replied coldly.

“Late? What do you mean?” Both acted confused.

Eloise didn’t bother explaining. She turned and walked away, heading straight for the memorial hall.

Though there was no commotion outside the castle, the white flags and her simple black dress attire made it clear something had happened.

These two were obviously pretending to be ignorant. She had no patience for their nonsense.

“Let’s go, follow her, and see.” Everett and Shane exchanged a glance, then followed Eloise into the memorial hall.

Inside the hall, several people were still kneeling. Rufus’s body lay peacefully in the coffin.

Upon entering the hall, Everett and Shane felt slightly relief. They had only received the news before and couldn’t confirm it. Now, seeing it with their own eyes, they could finally put their anxious hearts to rest.

Of course, although relieved, they had to maintain appearances.

“What? His Highness is dead? How could this happen?” After seeing the portrait, Everett exaggerated his expression, feigning grief.

“His Highness was blessed and destined for greatness. How could he die?”

With that, Everett suddenly threw himself at the coffin, starting to wail dramatically. “Your Highness! How tragic it is for you!

“It’s all because I arrived too late to save you, failing to protect your safety. I’m truly ashamed!

“Your Highness! You’re still the lord of the castle and the ruler of West Lucozia. How can you leave us like this? Your Highness, wake up, wake up!” Everett continued his display, shedding not a single tear.

It was an act; the performance was too apparent. Eloise watched coldly, showing no reaction.

“Your Highness! You will be remembered fondly!”

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?
