An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 708


Chapter 708

As Alma left Nicholson Corp., she was in a terrible mood. A person of her status has never had anyone question her decisions. But today, she was publicly challenged and even lost one of her loyal aides. There was no doubt that she’d be in a foul mood. However, they are currently in Balerno. If she wanted to get revenge, she’d have to arrange for her trusted confidants to come over from Glenstead.

“Grandmother, Dahlia was personally appointed by Grandfather to be chairman of the company. Will it put you in a predicament when Grandfather comes around to find that you’ve dismissed her from her position without consulting him about it?” Julian asked hesitantly. Although Alma’s actions had pleased him greatly, he was certain that such overbearing actions would be frowned.

upon.

“What do I have to fear when we don’t even know if he’s ever going to come around?” Alma said nonchalantly.

“Isn’t Grandfather just suffering from some of his old ailments? He should be alright after resting up for a bit, shouldn’t he?” Julian was curious about what Alma meant by that.

“It isn’t an old ailment. I poisoned him. He most likely won’t ever be coming around anymore,” Alma said coldly.

“What?” Julian felt like he’d been struck by lightning as he stared at Alma in bewilderment. “Gr grandmother, you’re joking, are you?” Julian said in a trembling voice, his eyes grew wide as

saucers.

“Do I look like I’m joking to you?” Alma looked at him frostily, her gaze just as cold to match.

“B-but why? Why would you do that?” Julian seemed to lose his cool as a cold sweat broke out. It was a major crime to harm the family head. There were unthinkable consequences if anyone found out. Most importantly, his grandparents had been married for half a century! Though they did not publicly show their affection for one another, they had been through thick and thin for 50 years! Julian could not comprehend why his grandmother would want to poison his grandfather. Was there some sort of deep grudge between them?

“Your grandfather had not been in the right mind when he thought of appointing Dahlia as the next head of the clan. He had intended to announce his decision to the whole family today. I advised him against it, hoping he would change his mind. But the old geezer was so stubborn and insisted on doing so. I was left with no choice. I could not let him do that, so I poisoned him last night. He’ll spend the remainder of his life on the bed,” Alma said calmly, as though it were the most reasonable thing to do.

“B-but even so, y-you shouldn’t have harmed him.” Julian gulped dryly.

“Who do you think I’m doing this for? I’m doing this for you!” Alma huffed. “You’re my grandson and the first legitimately born grandson of the Nicholson family. No matter what, you are the rightful heir of the family. But look at what that old man did. Not only did he not put you in a position of importance, he even insists on appointing an illegitimately born brat as the next family head! I consider myself merciful for not taking his life!”

Julian fell silent at that, his thoughts were a mess. No matter how he saw it, he was indeed the

one who should have been the next head of the family. He genuinely refused to accept Dahlia as the next head.

“Alright now, stop overthinking things. When the time is right, I’ll support you so that you become the next head of the family. Whoever stands in your way must die!” Alma said decisively

“Thank you for your support, Grandmother!” Julian quickly came to terms with what Alma said Since his grandfather no longer seemed to be thinking straight, he might as well just stay in bed. In the future, he would be the one in control of the Nicholson family!

“Grandmother, I’m just curious about one thing. Since Dahlia is the threat, why didn’t you take action on her instead?” Julian suddenly quipped.

“Even if I kill Dahlia, there’s always going to be a second one. The Nicholson family has a lot of descendants, and they are all threats to you. To solve the issue once and for all, we have to address the problem at its root.”
