An Understated Dominance Chapter 1908 by Marina Vittori

Though Julius was displeased, he dared not speak. While the two brothers continuously declined the throne, unwilling to become the Prince, the reality was that the throne could only be claimed by one of them.

Julius was aware of this fact and dared not entertain improper thoughts lest he meet the same fate as Reagan.

“That’s enough, you rascals! I’m allowing you to inherit the throne, and you act as if it’s a punishment. Is it that difficult to accept?” Rufus scolded, irritated by Dustin’s and Austin’s behaviors.

Neither of his sons wanted the throne, making it seem as if the position was worthless. Rufus felt embarrassed to have this many dignitaries witness the spectacle.

“I’m really not interested. You might as well pass it to Austin.” Dustin shrugged.

“I’m incapable of taking up the responsibility. The Prince of West Lucozia has to be you!” Austin asserted sternly.

“Silence! Both of you!”

Rufus slammed the table and snapped, “I will decide on this matter and will not tolerate your stubbornness! If it weren’t for my ailing health, you would have had to wait a few more years for the throne!”

Seeing Rufus upset, Austin kept his mouth shut. However, his determined expression revealed his stance. Dustin, on the other hand, remained indifferent.

It took Rufus a couple of deep breaths to calm down. Forcing a smile, he addressed the group, “My sons are not meeting expectations, and I apologize for the spectacle. Let’s talk about the throne another time. Tonight, let’s just enjoy the food and drinks.”

“Come on, everyone, let’s raise our glasses!” Wyatt chimed in with a smile, attempting to diffuse the tension.

He remained impartial and supported Rufus’ decision, whichever that might be. Gradually, the frosty atmosphere dissipated, but the assembly was now divided into three camps.

Led by Lincon, the Marquis of Riverside, a faction emerged in support of Logan. Led by Tyrus, the Marquis of Ravenwood, another faction emerged in support of Austin.

The remaining people, headed by Wyatt, the Marquis of Sunfire, maintained a neutral stance. They chose not to participate in the struggle for the throne and would pledge allegiance to whoever took charge.

Although their decision would not bring them any advantages, it spared them from any unnecessary risks.

After the celebratory feast, everyone returned home.

Rufus summoned Dustin to his study. After a decade apart, the father and son could finally have a peaceful conversation.

Two cups of tea were served, and Rufus broached the topic first. “Logan, now that you’ve settled an old score and fulfilled your long-standing desire, isn’t it time to come back home?”

“I’m back now, aren’t I?” Dustin picked up his cup of tea and blew on it lightly.

“You know what I mean. I meant settling down for the long term, not just staying for a few days,” Rufus said.

“I still have things to do.”

Dustin spoke without hesitation, “I promised Grace to help her in her search of the Dracan essences after wiping out the Dragon Guard. Now that everything is resolved, it’s time I fulfill my promise.”

“I can send someone to help you search for the Dracan essences. There’s no need for you to go personally,” Rufus suggested.

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?
