An Understated Dominance Chapter 1797 by Marina Vittori

“I really can’t do it! Logan, the throne belongs to you!” Austin was growing anxious.

“Alright, that’s enough. We’ll talk about this later. With so much trouble we’re facing, our immediate priority is to resolve all these issues.” Dustin changed the subject.

“Logan, as long as you take charge and stabilize the situation, I will assist you wholeheartedly!” Austin said with utmost sincerity.

“I can’t show myself yet.”

Dustin shook his head and explained, ” Julius and his group are still unaware of my return, so they are not on high alert. I can react in time if they harbor any ill intentions.

“Not to mention, the remnants of the Dragon Guard are still lurking in the shadows. I need to find an opportunity to eliminate them all!”

“I see.”

Austin quickly grasped the situation and said, “I understand. I will act as the spokesperson of the monarchy while you unravel all the conspiracies.”

“Good, it’s settled then.” Dustin nodded.

“Oh, right. There’s this.” Austin suddenly took out a gold emblem and handed it to Dustin.

“This is my military badge. You’ll be able to command 800 of my death warriors with it. It should be of help during a crucial moment.”

Austin’s 800 death warriors were all the cream of the crop. Since the day he was born, his mother had trained them in secret, accumulating strength to prepare for unforeseen circumstances.

Twenty years later, these warriors had grown into a formidable force.

“Alright. I’ll hold onto the badge for now and return it to you later.” Dustin accepted.

Even though he had Grace’s support, it was still not enough to deal with the remnants of the Dragon Guard. With Austin’s army, both sides were finally on a level playing field.

“Austin!” Suddenly, they heard someone shout from the door.

Eloise had returned, hastily rushing into the funeral hall. Dustin immediately put on his mask and stood to one side, pretending to be a guard.

He could be honest with Austin because he trusted him as a brother, but he still didn’t trust Eloise fully.

“Mom, didn’t I tell you to go and rest? Why are you back?” Austin was puzzled.

“There’s trouble outside!”

Eloise entered the funeral hall with a grave expression. “I just received news that half of the Eight Sovereigns have declared their independence and won’t obey orders from the monarchy from now on!

“They’ve also assembled their armies, preparing for a direct confrontation with the castle!”

“What? Declared independence? How dare they?” Austin’s expression darkened.

“They’ve initiated a rebellion right after Father’s passing. Do they really think we’re easy targets? Mom, fetch me the military insignia. I’m going to lead the troops to suppress them personally!”

If it were just a minor disturbance, he might have overlooked it. However, with the Four Sovereigns declaring independence, it amounted to an open rebellion. It was an intolerable act!

“Absolutely not!” Eloise quickly stopped him.

“The Four Sovereigns each control significant military forces. Once a war breaks out, it will inevitably result in a devastating loss of life!

“Moreover, the Black Dragon Army must secure the major fortresses. If internal strife occurs, the Western savages will seize the opportunity to invade!

“When that happens, the whole West Lucozia will be plunged into dire straits!

“Then what should we do? Are we just going to let them trample on us? Austin frowned.

“I’ve already sent envoys to negotiate. We’ll try to appease them as much as possible. After your father’s funeral, you will ascend to the throne immediately as the new Prince of West Lucozia.

“If those people have any sense, they will naturally surrender,” Eloise stated.

“Mom, I don’t think things are that simple.” Austin shook his head. Contemplating, he said, “It shouldn’t be a coincidence that the Four Sovereigns are rebelling simultaneously.

“There must be someone manipulating them behind the scenes. They’re obviously trying to force us to stand down!”

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?
