An Understated Dominance Chapter 1371 by Marina Vittori

“Wow! That’s amazing! He could make the paper crane fly?”

“Is this the occult expert they were talking about? This is truly impressive!”

The display by Theodore left the Welch family in awe. They’d only heard about such things in stories but had never seen them in real life. “What do you think? Now, do you believe in Sir Crane’s abilities?” Ezra said proudly.

“Wow, that’s what you call a true master!” Alistair exclaimed with a newfound respect. He thought, “If Dad is truly under some sort of spell, then only someone with extraordinary abilities could cure him.”

“But it’s just a simple trick, really, nothing much,” Theodore remarked casually, appearing humble.

“The crane trick we just saw is just a small part of his skills. Sir Crane has more in store for us. Let’s eagerly await the next performance,” Ezra added.

“That’s great.” Alistair nodded with a smile. “Eleanor, you don’t need to worry. With Sir Crane here, Grandpa will be fine.”

Ezra smiled smugly. But Eleanor responded dismissively with a huff and averted her gaze. Ezra looked embarrassed for a second but quickly covered it up.

Instead, he looked at Brooke and said nonchalantly, “Dr. Busch, I heard you mention that you know another occult expert. Is this person possibly more skilled than Sir Crane?”

Ezra had been eyeing the Harmony Healers for a while, but Brooke’s resistance was a thorn in his side.

“Well…” Brooke hesitated, feeling cornered. “Sir Crane is unmatched in his mastery of the occult.”

“If you’re not up to the task, there’s no need to be embarrassed that you can’t. We’ll leave Mr. Welch Senior’s strange sickness to Sir Crane,” Ezra said, implying that Brooke was inadequate.

Brooke furrowed his brow but quickly regained his composure. In the end, he said nothing since he knew he couldn’t afford to provoke someone of Ezra’s stature.

“Mr. Swanson, don’t jump to conclusions so fast. We don’t know who’s making a fool of themselves yet. A calm voice chimed in suddenly.

Everyone turned to the source of the voice and saw a casually dressed, handsome young man strolling over. It was none other than Dustin.

“Dustin!” Eleanor’s face lit up with joy as she rushed to greet him. “Why are you here?” “I heard from Dr. Busch that your grandfather is suffering from a strange sickness, so I came to have a look,” Dustin said with a smile.

“Oh, so you’re the occult expert that Dr. Busch mentioned?” Eleanor quickly realized. “I wouldn’t call myself an expert, just someone who knows a bit about occult, “Dustin modestly replied.

“Ha! You know just a little, and yet you’re showing off? Aren’t you afraid of making a fool of yourself?” Ezra sneered.

Since the incident at the Imperial Oasis Club the day before, Ezra had held a grudge against Dustin. This resentment prompted him to ask Sheehan for help by involving Theodore.

But as Ezra was about to take his revenge, an unexpected crisis hit the Welch family. Hence, Ezra quickly brought in Theodore to gain their favor. What Ezra didn’t expect was Dustin showing up; it ruined his plans now!

“Look at Mr. Swanson’s expression,” Dustin said, a sly smile on his lips. “It seems like he’s not very pleased. How about we continue the game from yesterday?”

“You-” Ezra’s temper flared briefly. He wanted to retort, but his concern for his image kept him in check. Dustin dared to provoke Ezra, pushing his patience to the brink.

“Who is this?” Alistair seemed puzzled.

“Dad, this is Dustin Rhys, a doctor who once saved my life. Now, he’s a dear friend of mine.” Eleanor spoke. She intentionally cast a glance toward Ezra as if bragging.

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?
