An Understated Dominance Chapter 1622 by Marina Vittori

“Dustin Rhys, if you insist on going to the monastery, I’ll not stop you. However, please accept this.” As she spoke, Grace took out a golden talisman from her pocket and gave it to Dustin.

The talisman looked very normal and unassuming. However, Dustin could feel a special energy emanating from it. It was very faint yet very fascinating. Yet, when he took a proper look at it, he found nothing.

“This is a talisman that I got for you. Maybe it could help you in times of need.” Grace explained.

“Talisman?” Dustin raised his eyebrows slightly, and his curiosity was piqued. “We don’t know each other, why would you help me?”

“Because you can’t die. Not now, at least,” Grace sounded serious.

Dustin’s life was very important as it was tied to the fate of Dragonmarsh. If he died in Oakvale, the city would be thrown into chaos.

She didn’t want to see this happen. As such, she decided to help Dustin overcome this difficult task. This was the responsibility of the Seers.

“I appreciate your thoughtfulness.” Dustin nodded slightly and received the talisman happily. From their earlier conversation, he could tell that she was probably from the Regal Observatory.

The Regal Observatory was a very mysterious department in Dragonmarsh. The people working in this department were very knowledgeable.

Through divination, they could foretell the future fate of a country. The best part was they could go anywhere they wanted to and eradicate evil!

However, the Regal Observatory would never interfere with common affairs. They wouldn’t reveal themselves unless something posed a danger to the fate of Dragonmarsh.

“Dustin Rhys, I’ve said and done what I needed to. I really hope that you’ll think before you act. Farewell.”

After giving him the talisman, Grace decided not to say anything more and got up to leave. She had done all that she could within her power. The outcome wasn’t within her control. 2

“This way, Ms. Linsor.” Dustin got up to send her to the door, and he watched her leave.

A sudden visit from the Regal Observatory showed the gravity of this matter. It was also a sign of great changes to come. He was getting closer to the truth.

“Your Highness …” Cinna walked out of his room at this moment. Compared to before, he had recovered a lot after a few days of meticulous care. He was able to go around on his own freely.

“Mr. Shaffer, it’s late. Why are you still up?” Dustin walked toward him and helped him to the couch.

“I’ve been sleeping for the past decade. I’ve slept enough. Now, I want to look at this beautiful world that we’re in.” Cinna flashed him a smile.

“You’ve just recovered. You should be resting,” Dustin advised.

“Don’t worry about me. I’m not dying anytime soon,” Cinna replied and suddenly changed the topic. “Your Highness, I heard your conversation with Ms. Linsor. I think she’s right. You shouldn’t take this risk.”

“Mr. Shaffer, I know you care about me. Bus, as I’ve said, I’ll get to the bottom of it regardless of the consequences,” Dustin said grimly.

“I’m worried. This trip is very dangerous. If there’s any accident, I wouldn’t be able to explain myself to your father.” Cinna looked troubled.

“No pain, no gain. I’ve already prepared myself for what’s coming. You need not worry, Mr. Shaffer.” Dustin smiled.

“Sigh … I knew you wouldn’t listen to me.” Cinna sighed as he asked again, ” When do you plan to go?”

“As soon as possible. Tomorrow, I’ll go to Quandary Mountain to finally find out the truth!”

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?
