An Understated Dominance Chapter 1077 by Marina Vittori

Dahlia, the ice princess, had barely said anything from the start. Her sudden statement captured everyone’s attention.

She had always projected an unapproachable persona, discouraging anyone from getting close. That was why her unexpected show of support for Dustin was a surprise.

“Dahlia, why are you helping him?” Elena was shocked. Her actions now were clearly out of character for her usual cold personality. “I’m just curious. I want to see why he’s so confident of winning this race,” Dahlia said indifferently.

Although that was what she said, an odd sensation prickled her mind. It was like she had acted impulsively to defend this stranger. It was truly unusual.

“Since Ms. Nicholson is so interested, let’s indulge him this once,” Jayden said politely. “Out of respect for Ms. Nicholson, I’ll give you a chance to lose gracefully. Now, get on your horse!”

Roxanne mounted Midnight Shadow and looked down at Dustin in contempt. With ten million in the bag, she had no reason to refuse. She could even have some fun while she was at it.

Dustin glanced at Dahlia silently. With a swift swing of his leg, he mounted the pony. When the two horses stood side by side, Dustin’s head barely reached Roxanne’s shoulder. He was nearly two heads shorter. “Hmph! He really got on! What a fool!”

“How shameless can he get? He’s using a woman’s money to place a bet.”

The crowd whispered among themselves as they looked at Dustin in disdain. He was bound to lose, but he insisted on participating. He was just humiliating himself!

“Ready-!” Once both of them were prepared, Jayden, acting as the referee, immediately yelled, “Go!”

As soon as the signal was given, Roxanne urged her horse forward. Midnight Shadow galloped at an astonishing speed, racing like the wind.

While Dustin remained calm as he held the reins, moving forward slowly on the pony. It didn’t seem like he was taking part in a race. It looked more like he was taking a stroll. “What’s this guy up to? Why is he so slow? He should start running!”

“No matter how fast it runs, a pony would never outrun a Thoroughbred.” “He knows he’s bound to lose, so he’s deliberately putting on a boring performance.”

As the crowd watched Dustin’s leisurely ride on his pony, they didn’t hold back on criticizing him.

Some looked at Dustin in disdain and some in mockery and ridicule. But they all felt disgusted by Dustin’s behavior.

It was one thing to lose, but he was not even trying. It had turned into an attitude problem. “Dahlia, just look at how despicable this guy is!” Elena complained unhappily.

“You were kind enough to help him, and this is the attitude he shows us. He deserves to stay an insurance agent for the rest of his life!”

“Some people are just utterly useless.” Jayden smiled mockingly. Dahlia frowned but didn’t say a word. Her gaze grew cold, and she felt disappointed. “Sheila, do you see that? I told you he’s an attention seeker!” Vivian was irritated.

“Hmph! He’s not embarrassed, but we certainly feel embarrassed for him!” Evan’s expression was grim. Sheila bit her lip; she had mixed feelings. She couldn’t understand why Dustin chose to perform poorly either.

“Hey, you there, can you speed up? I can’t wait any longer!”

Halfway through the race, Roxanne glanced backward and noticed Dustin trailing far back. She stopped her horse and taunted him. Even so, Dustin remained calm. He continued riding his pony, steadily closing the gap.

“Come on! Pick up the pace!” Roxanne repeated incessantly. It felt like a cat- and-mouse game to her. Once Dustin nearly caught up, she urged her horse forward again. As she increased the gap between them, she paused again, waiting for Dustin to catch up.

She repeated this several times, toying with him. As if watching a circus, the crowd burst into laughter.

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?
