An Understated Dominance Chapter 1369 by Marina Vittori

The following morning, Dustin was in a cozy, secluded villa. He sat on the bed with his legs crossed, focused on his training. When the sun rose, he slowly opened his eyes.

His martial arts cultivation was ascending at a breathtaking pace. He didn’t need to work hard and train, empowered by the Celestial Pearl.

The Celestial Pearl automatically helped him to absorb spiritual energy, constantly improving his powers. The better his natural talents, the more powerful the Celestial Pearl’s effects.

In less than a month, Dustin was close to becoming an ultimate grandmaster. He could break through to the next level anytime.

Still, he chose to be patient and focus on building a solid foundation. After all, he had half a year left before his decisive year-long agreement with Nestor ended.

Suddenly, his phone rang, and he retrieved it from beneath his pillow. Brooke’s voice on the other end sounded urgent. “Hey Dustin, I’ve run into some trouble. I need your help.”

Dustin asked in concern. “Is Mr. Shaffer in trouble?”

“No, it’s not about Mr. Shaffer,” Brooke clarified. “It’s about Mr. Welch Senior. Yesterday, he fell seriously ill out of the blue.

“The Welch family called in all the top doctors in South City, including me. We tried everything, but we can’t figure out what’s wrong.”

Dustin was surprised. “What kind of mysterious illness could stump you?”

To Dustin, Brooke should be able to handle complex illnesses. After all, Brooke could keep Cinna alive for the past decade.

“I suspect it might be some kind of witchcraft, but I’m unsure. It definitely doesn’t look like any ordinary illness,” Brooke whispered.

“Witchcraft? Are you sure?” Dustin arched an eyebrow. “I’m not entirely sure; it’s just a hunch. Given your expertise in the occult, I thought you could come and take a look.

“You mentioned needing Dragon Panax from the Welch family, right? If you can cure Mr. Welch Senior, getting the other herbs should be a breeze.”

“Alright, I’m on my way.” Dustin kept his response short and ended the call. Though he had secured Dragon Panax, he still needed the Iceheart Lotus and Emerald Corolla.

Dustin realized that saving Welch Senior’s life wasn’t just necessary for obtaining the herb he needed. It was also crucial for his long-term plans. If he allied with the Welch family, it could give him a strong foothold in Oakvale and help him achieve his goal.

Inside the Welch residence, Welch Senior lay on a bed, his appearance pale and frail. His lips were stained with blood. Thick ropes were tied tightly around him to restrain him during his hysteria. A group of doctors stood near the door, hesitant to get too close to Welch Senior.

Just half an hour ago, Welch Senior had undergone a startling transformation. He had displayed an unnatural burst of strength, injuring two bodyguards and biting off their ears before eating it.

His behavior was terrifying, leaving those who saw it deeply unsettled.

After a brief pause, Brooke cautiously approached the bed to check Welch Senior’s condition. He sighed in relief before swiftly exiting the room.

“Dr. Busch, how is my father? Is he okay?” Alistair Welch, the eldest son of the Welch family, asked. His wife, Joanne, his daughter, Eleanor, and several members of the Welch family looked at Brooke in expectation.

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?
