An Understated Dominance Chapter 1389 by Marina Vittori

Engulfed in flames, Dustin leaped high into the air before landing heavily on the ground. The resounding impact left several deep cracks under his feet,

A gust of wind swept over him, extinguishing the flames that had clocked his body. They could see white mist rising from his skin; it looked straight out of a movie.

“What in the world?” The crowd stood in utter shock at the incredible scene they had just witnessed. Even the firefighters were rendered speechless.

No one had expected a person to emerge unscathed from the raging fire, especially not after jumping from the third floor. His crazy and daring actions left everyone astonished.

“Am I seeing things? The guy that went in actually made it out alive?”

“Not only did he survive, he even rescued someone!”

“Oh my God! Who the hell is this guy? Even fire can’t harm him. This is out of this world!”

After a brief moment of silence, the crowd commented excitedly over the scene. Everyone looked at Dustin as if he were some sort of monster.

“Dustin? Y-You’re unharmed?” Brooke stammered in disbelief. “I was lucky. I managed to escape before the fire became too intense.” As he spoke, he placed a wet and smoldering quilt gently on the floor.

Although it was emitting smoke, it wasn’t engulfed in flames. Unwrapping the quilt, it revealed Cinna lying motionless inside. Even though his breathing was weak, he was unharmed.

“Thank God! Cinna is safe!” Brooke exclaimed as he wept tears of joy. He had thought Cinna was beyond saving. He never expected Dustin to show such incredible bravery, charging into the raging flames to save him.

After Dustin checked on Cinna’s condition and placed him in the car, he turned his attention back to Brooke. He asked, “Dr. Busch, how did Harmony Healers suddenly catch fire?”

“I don’t know either. I had just stepped out for a moment when the fire started. “Brooke shook his head. Every morning at the break of dawn, he would take a short stroll in the nearby park as a form of exercise. It was never more than half an hour.

He never encountered any problems all these years. However, Harmony Healers had broken out in a fire upon his return today.

“What time do you typically open?”

Dustin asked again.

“8:00 am daily,” Brooke answered.

“It’s not yet eight. That means the fire started before your operating hours.”

Dustin was frowning as he continued, ” Dr. Busch, was there anyone inside Harmony Healers when you left?”

“No.” Brooke shook his head. “Harper went out with her friends last night and hasn’t returned yet. It’s also quite early, so the students haven’t arrived yet.”

“Dr. Busch, I don’t think this fire was an accident.” Dustin was deep in contemplation. After a moment, he concluded, ” Harmony Healers wasn’t open for business, and the alchemy room wasn’t in use. The chances of an accidental fire are relatively low.

“The fact that the fire started right after you left the building seems too coincidental. I believe this fire was deliberate.”

“What? Harmony Healers was deliberately set on fire?” Brooke was seething in anger.

“I’ve dedicated my life to doing good deeds and helping people. I’ve never done anything to hurt anyone! Who could be so heartless as to set Harmony Healers on fire?”

Having spent decades working as a doctor, he had always done his duty of saving lives and helping those in need.

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?
