An Understated Dominance Chapter 1496 by Marina Vittori

Joanne nodded and said, “Eleanor, you go ahead and handle it. I’ll need to meet with Ms. Forrest for a chat.”

“Alright,” Eleanor replied. “Wait a moment … What about Dustin? Do we still need to address the situation with him?” Alistair suddenly asked.

“Absolutely,” Eleanor replied, looking frustrated, “He exploited the situation, created discord, and caused our falling out with the Swanson family. He must face the consequences!”

“To avoid arousing suspicion, we shouldn’t deal with this personally. Let’s hire someone to take care of it.” Joanne suggested.

“Don’t worry, I know how to handle these arrogant men,” Eleanor said, her eyes narrowed. “I have my ways!”

Meanwhile, outside Camron Medicals, a car came to a slow stop. Then Dustin and Abigail got out one after the other.

“Is this your new business, Sir? It looks quite bustling!” Abigail said, observing the scene with an innocent expression.

After the commotion from yesterday, Camron Medicals continued to flourish. Various big shots had gathered there, placing significant orders for Dew Balm.

The reason was simple: the product was affordable, and its healing properties were remarkable. With positive reviews pouring in, business was booming. “So, this is a venture I started with a couple of friends, and it seems to be doing well,” Dustin said with a smile.

“I heard about Dew Balm as soon as I arrived in Oakvale. I didn’t expect it to be your creation,” Abigail said, smiling.

“Our Mystic Arts Order frequently embarks on missions and sustains injuries, so we need this kind of ointment. Can you give me a discount since you’re the boss?”

“Kid, you’re here for business, and now you want to squeeze me dry? Seriously? “Dustin said, pretending to be offended.

“Hehe, well, you are my mentor after all,” Abigail said, playfully poking Dustin’s arm. “Can’t you give me a discount, please?”

“Alright, you drive a hard bargain. I’ll give it to you at the cost price. I won’t make any profit from you. Does that sound fair?” Dustin said, resigned.

“That’s fantastic! Thank you, Sir!” Abigail smiled sweetly.

“The Grand Sorceress of the Mystic Arts Order is a penny-pincher, huh? If this gets out, won’t people make fun of you?” Dustin shook his head.

“What’s wrong with being frugal? The Mystic Arts Order is huge, and there are many expenses. If we can save money, why not?” Abigail laughed.

Her words were true; the Mystic Arts Order lived modestly and was not wealthy. With considerable expenses, they were struggling to make ends meet. The disciples often had to take on extra work to support themselves.

“Make way! Clear the path!”

Suddenly, there was a disturbance at the entrance. Dustin turned around and saw a group of imposing bodyguards storming their way in. They forcibly pushed aside anyone in their way, prompting complaints from onlookers.

Upon entering, the bodyguards quickly cleared the path and stood on either side to maintain order. Following them was a woman dressed ostentatiously, exuding an air of luxury. She walked in arrogantly.

“What?” Seeing the woman, Dustin raised his eyebrows, surprised.

The woman was Julie, Dahlia’s cousin!

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?
