An Understated Dominance Chapter 1550 by Marina Vittori

As if it was a fairy tail, Natasha turned out to be the granddaughter of the Duke of Lachshire. Her newfound identity commanded respect, as Natasha effortlessly overshadowed Lana.

For a moment, Lana couldn’t shake the feeling of inferiority. However, realizing that such an outstanding woman had chosen Dustin, Lana felt reassured in her judgment.

“Honestly, it caught me off guard because I didn’t know she was the Duke of Lachshire’s granddaughter when I first met her,” Dustin shrugged.

“So, you lucked out big time?” Lana teased.

“Something along those lines.” Dustin chuckled without explicitly confirming or denying it.

“Cheers to you two and a whole life of happiness!” Lana raised her beer, clinked it with Dustin’s, and then downed it in one go.

The two continued their conversation over drinks, feeling even more at ease without the complexities of a romantic relationship. Lana had tucked away her feelings for Dustin deep in her heart. In the grand scheme of life, regrets were inevitable.

Having a crush on someone didn’t mean you had to claim them as your own. Being friends, sharing a drink and conversation from time to time-now, wasn’t that nice?

As the night wore on, after a few more beers, Dustin decided to call it a night. Lana watched him drive away.

Lana stretched lazily on the bed and gazed at the ceiling. There were still some lingering attachments in her heart.  Suddenly, her phone rang. Lana picked it up and saw it was a call from her uncle, Corey Camron.

“Hello, Uncle Corey, it’s already late. Can’t it wait until tomorrow?” Lana lazily asked.

“Lana, there’s an urgent matter at home. Hurry back!” The voice on the other end sounded tense.

“What happened?” Lana was curious.

“It’s hard to explain over the phone. You’ll know when you get here.” The voice urged her.

“Alright, I’ll be there in a while.” After hanging up, Lana didn’t dare to delay. She changed into another set of clothes and immediately left.

Thirty minutes later, Lana pulled up to Camron Manor. The place was pretty big, and it housed some key family members. Usually, family get- togethers and meetings took place here.

But a late-night meeting like this was rare. Lana stepped out of the car and headed toward the meeting hall with familiarity. The hall was well-lit, and the key members of the Camron family were seated, and the air was tense.

Behind them, a line of bodyguards in suits and sunglasses stood, their waists bulging, indicating concealed weapons.

“Uncle Corey, I’m here. What’s the urgent matter?” Lana walked in easily. However, the peculiar atmosphere in the meeting hall, especially the presence of unfamiliar bodyguards, immediately set off her alarms.

“Uncle Corey, what’s-“Lana was about to ask when a cold gun abruptly pressed against the back of her head.

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?
