An Understated Dominance Chapter 1388 by Marina Vittori

“Call for help right now! I’m on my way!” Dustin said urgently before hanging up the phone. He floored the gas pedal and raced toward Harmony Healers.

With no time to waste, he ran the red lights, zipping like a lightning bolt. A drive that usually took 20 minutes. became a ten-minute drive instead.

When he arrived at the scene, the fire department was still on its way. Harmony Healers stood engulfed in a furious blaze. The first floor was gone, and the flames were creeping up to the second floor.

Despite neighbors helping with water buckets, their efforts felt like a drop in the ocean. At this rate, the fire would. reach the third floor in less than five minutes!

“Quick! We need more help!” Brooke shouted, holding a fire extinguisher in his hand and spraying it frantically. His clothes were in tatters, his face smudged with soot, and he had burns on his skin. He looked absolutely worn out.

“Dr. Busch! Is Mr. Shaffer safe?”

“Cinna is still inside, and the fire has gotten out of control! We’ve done all we can, but we can’t put it out! What should we do?” Brooke’s face twisted with anxiety and panic. His extinguisher ran dry, leaving him helpless against the raging inferno.

“I’m going in to save him!” Dustin didn’t waste time talking. After taking a deep breath, he charged into the raging fire.

“Dustin! Have you gone mad? Get out of there! You’ll die!” Brooke was taken aback, yelling in shock.  But the flames had already swallowed Dustin, and Brooke sighed heavily. “It’s all over. Everything is ruined now.”

“Oh my God! Did someone just go in? Who’s crazy enough to do that?”

“Did you really see that? Who’d dare to dive into this massive fire? They’re practically asking for death!”

“I saw it too! Someone went in. That’s insane!”

Dustin’s fearless act left the onlookers speechless, temporarily forgetting the fire. As the seconds ticked away, the fire roared on.

The second floor had crumbled, and the flames were on the march to the third. The searing heat forced firefighters and volunteers to retreat.

Everyone knew that the Harmony Healers were beyond saving. The fire had burned down the finest clinic in South City, and the whole town watched in sorrow as it turned to ashes.

Just then, two fire trucks finally pulled up. Firefighters spilled out, and Brooke hurried toward them as if he’d found saviors.

He was limping, his face dirty and covered in burns. “Quick, there are two people inside! Please, you have to help them!”

“There are people inside?”

The firefighters gazed at the flames consuming Harmony Healers and fell silent. With a fire this big, anyone inside had slim chances of survival. Their priority was containing the damage.

“Why aren’t you going inside? There are still people in there! Save them!”

“Sir, we’ll do our best to rescue them. But you must understand, with a fire this size, anyone inside is unlikely to survive.” A firefighter spoke with regret.

As he spoke, there was a loud crash, and a window on the third floor shattered. Then, a figure wreathed in flames leaped from the third floor, clutching a soaking wet blanket.

His fearless descent was like a scene from an action movie.

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?
