An Understated Dominance Chapter 1873 by Marina Vittori

It was midnight in West Lucozia castle. Rufus sat on the edge of the bed and coughed violently. His body trembled from how hard he coughed. Blood would dribble on the floor with his every cough.

“Your Highness, the medicine is here!” After hearing Rufus coughing, Eloise quickly rushed into the room with the medicine in hand.

Eloise placed the medicine down and gently patted Rufus’ back. Her eyes were filled with worry and distress.

After Rufus finally stopped coughing, the floor had a pool of blood. His complexion was as pale as a sheet. Plus, there were beads of sweat on his forehead.

“Your Highness, you should quickly drink the medicine.” Eloise picked up the medicine and handed it to him with both hands.

“It’s too bitter. I feel nauseous just smelling it.” Rufus furrowed his eyebrows, seemingly unwilling to drink the medicine.

“It’s good for you. You should drink it,” Eloise advised gently.

“I’m going to die soon, anyway. It doesn’t make a difference if I drink it or not.” Rufus shook his head.

“Stop talking nonsense! You can definitely live until you’re 100 years old! “Eloise said seriously.

“You’re right.” Rufus smiled with resignation. He furrowed his eyebrows, looking at the medicine. In the end, he gritted his teeth and drank all of it.

Rufus was someone who remained calm during the war. However, his face became distorted after drinking the medicine.

He only breathed a sigh of relief after eating a sweet.

“Your Highness, do you feel better?” Eloise took a white towel and gently wiped his sweat.

“I feel much better.” Rufus smiled, trying to console her. Although the medicine was made from precious ingredients, it lost its effectiveness as time passed. Rufus was unsure how long he could hold on.

“Your Highness, you haven’t fully recovered after your previous injury. You should rest earlier,” urged Eloise. However, Rufus shook his head. “I can’t sleep. Oh, right. How is Austin and Dustin doing?”

Eloise sighed. “It’s not going well. Reagan has cunningly never revealed himself. He even changed his meeting place with Julius to the Dragon Guard’s secret base.

“Ever since Julius entered Bronx Mountain Range, his signal completely disappeared. There have been no signs of him at all.”

Rufus narrowed his eyes. “Bronx Mountain Range? That place is right at the border. It looks like the Dragon Guard has kept themself well hidden.”

Eloise said worriedly, “I think Julius might betray us again. If Julius chose to work with Reagon and set up an ambush for Austin and Dustin, they’d be in danger.”

“There’s no need to worry too much.”

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?
