An Understated Dominance Chapter 1840 by Marina Vittori

“Grand General Rhys, I have only one son. I cannot leave him behind and return to Oakvale alone. I implore you to show mercy!” Eloise bowed deeply.

At that crucial moment, she had cast aside all concerns for her pride.

The sole focus was on extracting Austin from the raging inferno, a sacrifice she deemed worthwhile even if it meant surrendering her own life.

“If Your Highness does not wish to return to Oakvale, you can stay here,” Julius said indifferently.

He went on, “I can find a beautiful place in West Lucozia for both of you to spend the rest of your lives carefree. How about that?”

“If you become the Prince of West Lucozia, it might not be appropriate for us to stay here. It would be better if you allowed us to return to Oakvale. That way, everyone would be happy,” she suggested.

“There’s nothing inappropriate about it. Austin is my nephew,” he said with a faint smile.

He added, “So, having him assist me in West Lucozia is normal. If he performs well, he might even be rewarded with higher ranks and titles, enjoying endless prosperity and wealth.”

“Grand General Rhys, I beg you, please spare us, mother and son, for the sake of His Highness!” Eloise suddenly dropped to her knees with a thud, surprising everyone.

No one expected the dignified Princess of West Lucozia to kneel and plead for mercy.

“Your Highness! What are you doing? Please get up!” Wyatt’s face turned pale as he ordered attendants to help, but Eloise pushed them away.

On the other hand, Julius wore a smirk, finding the scene somewhat amusing. The once high and mighty princess was kneeling before him, begging for mercy.

“Mom!” Suddenly, Austin rushed out. Seeing his mother forced to kneel at the door, his eyes turned red with fury.

“Julius! You scum! How dare you humiliate my mother? Today, I’m going all out against you!” he roared and charged forward with his sword.

“Austin! Stop!” Her face turned pale. She wanted to reach out and stop him, but it was too late. Austin, merging seamlessly with his sword, launched a formidable strike toward Julius, accompanied by a gust of wind.

Despite the assault, Julius stood unfazed with his hands behind his back as if he didn’t consider Austin a threat.

“Hmph! A bit presumptuous, aren’t you?”

At that moment, Elijah, on the left, suddenly took action. His spear picked up, thrusting forward with one hand. Without any visible strength or fancy moves, he simply hit Austin’s sword.

There was a loud explosion, and Austin was directly sent flying more than 30 feet away. His sword fell to the ground with a clatter.

The tremendous impact made him retreat seven or eight steps before barely stabilizing himself. A trace of blood slowly flowed from his nose.

Although Austin had reached the level of a Grandmaster Martial Artist, he was still far behind Elijah, who was close to the rank of an Ultimate Grandmaster. Just a simple thrust caused Austin to be injured.

“Austin! Are you okay?” Eloise hurriedly approached and commanded the castle’s Draken Guardians to protect her son.

“It’s just a minor injury, nothing serious.” Austin wiped the blood from his nose. He took a deep breath, forcibly suppressing the surging blood.

He glared fiercely at Elijah and said, ” Elijah, my father treated you generously. Why are you working for Julius?”

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?
