An Understated Dominance Chapter 1310 by Marina Vittori

An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1310 

Harmony Healers didn’t earn much. They either treated the poor for free or only charged them the cost price of the medications. Despite their reputation, they struggled financially.

One billion was an amount Harmony Healers would never earn in a lifetime. That was why Harper thought there was no harm in betting on it. It could change their fortune dramatically.

“There are no absolutes in life. I will never allow you to risk Harmony Healers like that!” Brooke refused to give in.

“Grandpa, why won’t you trust me?” Harper was getting frustrated.

“When those thugs were causing trouble, didn’t you stake Harmony Healers too? You even did it on behalf of Dustin! Why are you willing to trust an outsider but not me? Why?”

Harper was practically yelling by the end of it.

“Kid, I had no choice back then. But you’re just being willful now. You need to understand the difference,” Brooke explained with a frown.

“I don’t care!” Harper wasn’t listening to reason and was getting agitated. “Why is Dustin worth betting Harmony Healers on, but not me? If you refuse to trust me today, I’m cutting ties with you!”

“You-” Brooke was exasperated. He was torn between anger and helplessness. Why was this child so stubborn? Did she have to gamble her entire family fortune just to prove a point?

“Master Brooke, while Harper is acting impulsively, she isn’t entirely unreasonable.” Right then, Cody spoke up for Harper.

“I know Lana. She’s not exactly smart. She’s no match for Harper, especially when it comes to literary knowledge. I have absolute faith in Harper. She’s definitely going to win!”

“Exactly, Master Brooke. Harper is widely recognized as a prodigy, particularly in literature. She’s way above that affluent woman!” Caldwell chimed in.

“Master Brooke, obtaining wealth often involves risks. If we win one billion, Harmony Healers can save countless more lives. Think about the people who will benefit from it!”

The students voiced their opinions.

“I…” Brooke found himself wavering. He was in a tight spot. If he refused his granddaughter, she might try something foolish. But if he agreed and she won the bet, it could resolve many of Harmony Healers’ issues.

For a moment, he found it difficult to make a decision. “Master Brooke, please agree. I’m willing to vouch for Harper,” Cody requested with a personal plea.

“Since you put it that way, I’ll allow her to have her way this time.” After much hesitation, Brooke finally relented. But he added with seriousness, “But this is a one-time exception. There will be no more next time!”

“No problem.” Cody nodded.

“Thanks, Grandpa!” Harper beamed. “Haha… And here I thought you wouldn’t dare take on the bet. You’re quite bold. But it’s a shame that you’re destined to lose.” Lana smirked.

“Lose? Hmph, what a joke! I know exactly what you’re made of. Your talent is a joke compared to mine.”

Harper scoffed.

While she couldn’t claim to know Lana inside out, she understood her well enough from their four years in university. It wasn’t an exaggeration to claim that her penmanship outshone Lana’s, even with her toes.

“Since you’re so confident, let’s see what happens later. I just hope you won’t regret it.” Lana smiled meaningfully before taking a seat at a nearby table with the man next to her.

After a while, the literary event hosted by Regal Court officially began.

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?
