An Understated Dominance Chapter 1836 by Marina Vittori

“What? Abandon West Lucozia? That’s like handing the throne to Julius!” Austin’s expression turned grim.

“As long as we’re alive, there’s still a chance. We need to stay resilient. There are opportunities, and we must not lose hope,” Lincon said with heartfelt sincerity.

“The throne is stolen, the military insignia is taken, and 50 thousand Black Dragon Army soldiers are all following Julius’ orders. In this situation, where do we have a chance?” Tyrus shook his head.

If he had known it would come to this, he wouldn’t have been so greedy by forming an alliance through marriage with the Rhys family. Now, he didn’t gain any advantage and only managed to entangle himself in a difficult situation.

“I think Sir Blaze is right. We must prepare for the worst in case of unforeseen events.” Eloise nodded. Though reluctant to admit it, the current situation was highly unfavorable for them.

If the military insignia truly fell into Julius’s hands, they would lose any chance of turning the tide. Leaving West Lucozia seemed inevitable.

With the esteemed title of the eldest princess of Dragonmarsh, even if she departed West Lucozia for Oakvale, she would undoubtedly find a place of honor. It would spare her son from any undue hardship.

“Of course, don’t be too pessimistic. General Steele’s strength is no less than Elijah’s. If he manages to retrieve the military insignia, we still have hope, “Lincon encouraged.

“You’re right. Nothing is absolute in this world. We haven’t lost yet, so don’t look so gloomy. Cheer up!” Wyatt declared.

“Everyone, I’ll excuse myself for now.” Austin nodded toward the group and walked out of the hall.

At that moment, he was overwhelmed, and his first thought was of his elder brother, Logan.

To avoid exposing Dustin’s identity, Austin called his brother, who was disguised as a guard, into his room. He then instructed those around him to secure the courtyard and prevent anyone from approaching.

Once confirming it was safe, Dustin was the first to speak up. “Austin, did something happen? I saw a figure flash across the rooftop earlier.”

“Yes, something did happen.” Austin nodded, saying solemnly, “Elijah is a traitor. He had taken the Marshal’s military insignia and escaped.”

“What? The military insignia was stolen? How did this happen?” Dustin furrowed his brow.

“It’s my fault. I was too careless.” Austin didn’t hide anything and briefly recounted the events. After hearing that, Dustin nodded thoughtfully. “So, Elijah was a pawn planted by Julius. We’ve all miscalculated.’

“Logan, what do we do now? Suppose we can’t retrieve the military insignia. In that case, the position of the Prince of West Lucozia might fall into Julius’s hands,” Austin said gravely.

“Julius won’t easily become the prince. “Dustin shook his head.

He continued, “Let’s wait and see. If General Steele can’t retrieve the military insignia, I’ll personally deal with Julius.”

“How will you deal with Julius?” Austin asked cautiously.

“I can’t reveal the entire plan. You’ll know when the time comes.” Dustin patted Austin’s shoulder with a smile.

He added, “Alright, stop overthinking. These past few days have been exhausting for you. Get some rest and recover. We’ll face this challenge together as brothers.”

“Yeah.” Austin nodded heavily, seeming to regain some confidence.

After a few more words of advice, Dustin left the room.

Those words were meant to console Austin, hoping he wouldn’t feel too disheartened. As for the plan, Dustin had yet to figure it out.

The unexpected loss of the military insignia had caught them off guard. Even Dustin hadn’t anticipated that Elijah would collude with Julius.

When they went to the Marquis Silvercrest residence, Elijah voluntarily confessed without hiding anything, even killing Julius’s envoy to show his determination.

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?
