An Understated Dominance Chapter 1627 by Marina Vittori

Simple Ken meticulously wiped down the Dragon Sparrow sword before sheathing it. After coming back inside, he cleaned up the plates and cutlery, meticulously tidying the entire house. He then proceeded to chop wood, fetch water, and attend to the chickens and ducks.

Once all chores were completed, Simple Ken changed into a fresh set of clothes. He stood at the doorway for a moment and eventually stepped out with the sword strapped to his back.

The moment he emerged, a little girl with braided hair hurriedly approached. Aged around five or six, she bore a slightly grimy face with delicate features that hinted at potential beauty.

Her cheeks showed signs of recent bruising, and a trace of blood near her nostrils suggested she had just been in a scuffle.

“Simple Ken!” The little girl, balancing a cluster of fish and a few crabs, reached him and proudly declared, ” Look, Simple Ken, I got your stuff back. Aren’t I amazing?”

“Another fight?” Simple Ken crouched before her.

“They were bullying you, trying to trick you out of your things. I made them give it all back, and when they refused, I gave them a good beating!”

The little girl, with an air of defiance, asserted, “Don’t think I’m weak just because I’m skinny. I’m really strong. I made them cry!”

“These things aren’t worth it,” he said, shaking his head.

“I don’t care! I won’t let them bully you! “The little girl, with determination in her eyes, stated, “You’re my friend, and if anyone dares to bully you, I’ll fight them for you!”

“Friend?” Simple Ken smiled, his eyes carrying a touch of indulgence. “Hazel, I’m lucky to have a friend like you. Before I leave, I want to give you a gift.”

Simple Ken took out a book from his pocket and handed it to Hazel Black. ” This is my life’s work. I’m passing it on to you, hoping it will be of help to you.”

“A book?” She scratched her head. “But I can’t read.”

“It’s okay. Read it when you learn to read.” He smiled.

“Okay.” Hazel nodded. Then, as if she realized something, she exclaimed, ” Simple Ken, you’re acting strange today. You usually don’t talk much.”

“What’s so strange?” Simple Ken asked with a smile.

“You seem … not silly anymore,” Hazel said, tilting her head.

“I was never silly.” He smiled and patted her head. “Let me tell you a secret. I’m not called Simple Ken. I have a name. Look, this is how you write them.” He wrote his name in cursive on the ground.

“How do I read this?”

Hazel looked left and right, completely puzzled.

“This is ‘Seth,’ and this is ‘Hughes.’ Together, they’re Seth Hughes,” he explained with a smile.

“Seth Hughes? That’s too weird. I think Simple Ken sounds better,” Hazel said with a pout.

“Okay, if you like calling me Simple Ken, then call me Simple Ken.” Seth laughed.

“Simple Ken, are you going out?” Hazel asked again.

“Yes, to a very distant place.” Не nodded.

“Very far? Are you going to the city? I’ve never been there. Can you take me with you?” she asked eagerly.

“Not this time. Maybe next time,” he refused.

“Oh…” Hazel felt a bit disappointed.

“Hazel, you have great potential and are destined for greatness in the future. Then, you can go wherever you want, and no one can stop you,” Seth consoled.

“Really?” Hazel wiped away her tears and smiled. Even though she didn’t understand, his words sounded amazing. “Of course, it’s true.”

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?
