An Understated Dominance Chapter 1800 by Marina Vittori

Austin’s plan was simple. The initial approach involved diplomacy before resorting to force, primarily focusing on persuasion and amnesty.

If the four rebelling sovereigns were willing to submit to the monarchy, they would be pardoned and their existing positions of power safeguarded.

However, if diplomatic efforts failed, they had to resort to force to suppress the rebellion. In that case, the monarchy would join forces with the other Four Sovereigns and West Lucozia’s allied powers to eliminate the traitors and quell the rebellion.

If war became inevitable, then a swift resolution would be their best option. After hearing Austin’s plan, Wyatt nodded solemnly and said, “The power and influence I have today were bestowed by your father.

“Whether it’s to deploy troops to quell the rebellion or offer my own life, I will not hesitate!”

“Uncle Wyatt, your commitment is deeply appreciated. With your support, we will certainly overcome this crisis!” Austin responded.

Offering more than mere words, Wyatt took out his military insignia and handed it over. “This is my marquis badge. With it, you can command the troops of Summitville at your discretion.”

Austin hesitated for a moment, not expecting Wyatt to hand over his insignia without hesitation. The act itself spoke volumes about Waytt’s loyalty.

“Don’t refuse. In times of urgency, extraordinary measures are necessary. My marquis badge will help your plans, “Wyatt insisted, pressing the insignia into Austin’s hands.

“Uncle Wyatt, your sense of duty is truly admirable!”

Expressing his gratitude, Austin affirmed, “Once we get through this hurdle, I’ll make sure to have a proper visit to convey my gratitude.”

“Alright, enough with the formalities. Time is of the essence. I won’t keep you here any longer. Go now.” Wyatt waved his hand.

“Farewell, Uncle Wyatt.” With a respectful bow, Austin left with his entourage. Their first stop of the night unfolded unexpectedly smoothly. In just half an hour, they secured Wyatt’s support and obtained a marquis badge to command his troops.

It would be great if they could maintain this momentum.

“It’s been years since I last saw Uncle Wyatt. Even though he’s doing better, his loyalty remains,” Austin mused as they left Wyatt’s residence.

“Rufus has been in control of West Lucozia for many years, earning the people’s respect. While a few ambitious individuals have lurked within, the majority are loyal and valiant,” Dustin remarked.

“You’re right. With Father’s authority, if he had continued to govern West Lucozia, there would have been lasting peace. What a pity .” Austin shook his head.

Whether it was Julius or the four rebelling sovereigns, West Lucoiza remained peaceful over the years due to their fear of their father.

Now that their father had passed away, these individuals had nothing left to fear, and their ambitions were beginning to surface.

“Where to next?” Dustin asked.

“Based on the optimal route, our next destination would be Quintonia to meet the Marquis of Ravenwood, Tyrus Storm,” Austin responded.

“Let’s go.” Dustin nodded. Without another word, they got into the car and left.

The Four Sovereigns each guarded a city and had substantial military forces under their command. In the past, they only answered to their father and no one else.

With Rufus’ demise, it would not be easy to persuade the Four Sovereigns to send their troops to quell the chaos, given their status.

Tonight was destined to be a sleepless night.

In the early hours of the morning, their vehicle entered Quintonia and finally stopped before the Marquis of Ravenwood’s mansion.

Tyrus Strom, the Marquis of Ravenwood, was also an influential figure. Having fought alongside Rufus in his youth, Tyrus was etched with scars that had earned him his current glory.

“Austin, I’m familiar with Tyrus. Unlike Wyatt, who is loyal and valiant, he’s more shrewd, with the mind of a savvy businessman. Convincing him to offer full support won’t be easy,” Dustin cautioned.

“Logan, I know what to do. I’ll do whatever it takes to persuade him,” Austin declared determinedly.

“Good. Execute your plan when the time is right.” Dustin nodded.

Austin approached the mansion and took out his identification badge, prompting a stir. Then, the guards swiftly ushered them inside.

Seated in the main hall, attendants graciously presented pastries and tea. After a brief wait, the Marquis of Ravenwood, Tyrus, finally entered wearing his pajamas.

“Oh, Your Highness, what brings you here?” Tyrus feigned surprise upon seeing Austin.

“Uncle Tyrus, my apologies for the early visit, but I have something urgent to discuss,” Austin apologized.

“Your Highness, are you facing difficulties?” Tyrus asked.

“Indeed, significant difficulties…” Austin proceeded to explain the entire situation in detail.

After listening, Tyrus was shocked.”

What? Prince Rufus was assassinated, and the Northern Four Sovereigns are rebelling? The situation is unexpectedly dire.”

“I wouldn’t have troubled you if the circumstances were different,” Austin stated.

“This is indeed a significant difficulty!” Tyrus grimaced. After thinking about it for a moment, he asked, “Your Highness, what is it that you require of me?”

“Uncle Tyrus, the Northern Four Sovereigns have shown ingratitude by openly rebelling. I’ve sent people to negotiate. If they’re willing to submit, all will be well.

“But if they remain stubborn, we must prepare for the worst. When that time comes, I hope you can deploy your troops and stand with the monarchy to quell the rebellion!” Austin bowed.

“I see “Hearing this, Tyrus wore a troubled expression.

“Your Highness, I’m getting old. I just want to live my remaining years peacefully. I’m afraid leading troops into battle is beyond my current capabilities.”

“Uncle Tyrus, with your reputation and the military strength at your disposal, you need not personally engage in the conflict.

“I only seek your support for the monarchy in suppressing the rebellion, “Austin compromised.

“Your Highness, it’s not that I’m unwilling to help. It’s just that war entails casualties, and my resources are limited.

“I have plans to secure the future for generations to come. Exhausting them now leaves me with nothing to pass down.” Tyrus shook his head.

“Uncle Tyrus, if West Lucozia falls into chaos, I’m afraid even Quintonia won’t escape unscathed.”

Austin continued solemnly, “Under the circumstances, everyone will be affected once trouble arrives.

“Your contribution won’t only be for the monarchy but also yourself and the peace of future generations!”

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?
