An Understated Dominance Chapter 1293 by Marina Vittori

An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1293

In Oakvale, there were eight big families, and the Swanson family was one of them. They had been around for a hundred. years and were influential in Oakvale, especially in South City. They were like the kings of South City.

The Welsh family was another powerful family in the city. The Ostrower family may be respected, but they weren’t on the same level.

When Cody heard about the Swanson family, his confidence turned into worry and seriousness.

“Mr. Ostrower, I know you come from a good family,” Ziggy said. “But there are some things you better not mess with, especially when it involves the Swanson family.

“I suggest you think twice before getting involved, or things could turn ugly.” He grinned, looking confident. He had looked into Harmony Healers’ background and knew they didn’t have strong backing.

Cody replied, “Ziggy, don’t act like you have connections to the Swanson family. You’re not fooling anyone.”

Ziggy responded, “The Swanson family is known for their good name. There are things they can’t handle openly, so people like us step in.

“Here’s another advice: stay out of things that don’t concern you, or you might get into trouble.”

“Who do you think you are to talk to me like this?” Cody felt challenged.

“I might not be someone special, but the Swanson family is. If you keep pushing, there will be consequences.” Ziggy smirked.

“Ha! Do you think bringing up the Swanson family scares me? Let me tell you, in Oakvale, we follow the rules.

“Even they can’t control everything!” Cody declared confidently. Everyone from Harmony Healers watched from the sidelines. They came from a respected family and weren’t easily intimidated by a bunch of troublemakers.

“Oh? Can your Ostrower family do what the Swanson family can’t?” Suddenly, a high-pitched voice echoed from the entrance.

Then, a hideous middle-aged man with a weathered face, a bulbous nose, and a mole on one side walked in. The mole had a few stray hairs, which added a bit of humor to his appearance.

“Hey, isn’t that the Swanson family’s butler? What brings you here?” Ziggy quickly went over and began flattering him shamelessly. The hideous man was Zion Swanson, the Swanson family’s butler.

“Hmmph! You’re taking too long to resolve this matter. If I hadn’t come, could you have handled it?” Zion grumbled.

“Yes, yes, you’re absolutely right, Mr. Swanson. You’re wise, brave, and brilliant. “Even I can’t even compare myself to you,” Ziggy flattered him, making Zion smile.

“Enough of that. Let’s focus on the issue at hand,” Zion said, turning to Cody.

“Mr. Ostrower, I heard you’re unhappy with the Swanson family. Is that true?”

With those words, everyone in the room turned to look at Cody. On one side, Ziggy and his friends enjoyed the situation like they were watching a show.

On the other side, members of Harmony Healers looked nervous and worried. Even though Cody had influence and power, he was powerless against the formidable Swanson family.

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?
