An Understated Dominance Chapter 1774 by Marina Vittori

As Rufus unleashed his sudden burst of anger, Reuben felt a surge of fear, his face drained of color. In his experience, the prince seldom displayed joy, making his furious outburst all the more unexpected.

After all, Russo had only been involved with an ordinary woman. Surely, it didn’t warrant such fury?

“Your Highness, it’s my fault for not disciplining him properly. If my son has erred, I’m prepared to shoulder all the blame!” Reuben knelt on the floor, presenting an image of righteousness.

“Can you handle that responsibility?” Rufus, abruptly seizing a handful of letters, delivered them with a swift slap to Reuben’s face.

The force sent Reuben sprawling. His face was aflame. “What’s all this about? “Perplexed, Reuben gathered the scattered letters and began to examine them.

The deeper he delved, the more his panic intensified. His entire body shook like a sieve, with cold sweat forming.

“No way! This can’t be … It’s impossible!” Reuben shook his head repeatedly, utterly unwilling to believe what was unfolding.

The letters laid bare the transgressions of the Vern family, encompassing not just his son Russo but also numerous influential members, even detailing Reuben’s misdeeds.

From embezzlement to murder, every crime was explicitly listed. Many of these deeds he had long forgotten, only to find them now on Rufus’s desk.

What was happening? Why had Rufus resorted to agents to investigate the Vern family? Had he made any mistakes?

“Reuben, do you understand now? Do you have anything left to say?” Rufus demanded sternly.

“Your Highness, spare me! Spare me, Your Highness!” Wide awake to reality, Reuben knelt on the floor, frantically begging for mercy.

His head banged against the floor with each word, even if it meant bleeding and no respite.

Finally grasping why Rufus was so furious, the Vern family’s myriad crimes could lead to their complete annihilation now that it was exposed.

“Spare you?” Rufus scoffed. “When the Vern family was committing those murders and arsons, did you think of sparing the lives of innocents?”

“Your Highness, I acknowledge my mistake! I promise to reform. Please, considering my many years of dedicated service and hard work, show mercy!” Reuben, still bowing, begged desperately, intertwining apologies with emotional appeals.

He knew today marked a catastrophe for him. He didn’t hope for complete safety. He just wanted to preserve his life.

“Your Highness, Mr. Linden is here!” A guard abruptly entered, bowing to report.

“Bring him in!” Rufus ordered coldly.

“Understood!” The guard acknowledged and swiftly departed.

After a while, the slightly hunched Ambrose entered with a submissive demeanor.

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?
