An Understated Dominance Chapter 1638 by Marina Vittori

The round-faced monk was interrupted by Donovan’s raised hand.

“No need for more words. Just go,” Donovan said.

“Yes.” The round-faced monk shot Dustin a glare and left in a hurry.  “Edvan, take Mr. Rhys to the back of the mountain. Make sure to protect his safety,” Donovan added.

“Abbot, what about you?” The monk in the yellow robe furrowed his brow in concern. Before becoming a monk, he served as the commander of the Prince of Carsonne’s guards. He had never left the prince’s side. Now, he was reluctant to leave the abbot and escort a stranger down the mountain.

“With Fedrick and Clarick here, I won’t be in danger. You two, go quickly. Don’t delay,” Donovan instructed.

“Yes,” Edvan said nothing more, immediately leading Dustin out the door. Before leaving, Dustin glanced back at Donovan, who had once again entered a state of meditation, continuing his recitation.

“Mr. Rhys, this way, please,” Edvan led Dustin into the monastery’s backyard, opened a hidden door, and went in first.

The secret passage was pitch dark, making visibility nearly impossible. Edvan, however, knew his way around and lit two torches in the corner, illuminating a small area.

Upon closer inspection, Dustin noticed it was a narrow tunnel descending into the depths. The tunnel was long, with no visible end, and only wide enough for one person to pass through.

“Mr. Rhys, this tunnel leads directly to the foot of the mountain. It’s very discreet, unknown to outsiders. I’ll safely guide you out, but please don’t come back again,” Edvan said while leading the way.

“Thank you, Master. Today, I came to seek answers and have now unraveled the mysteries. I won’t disturb the peace of your lives again,” Dustin replied candidly.

“That’s good to hear.” Edvan’s tone softened. The two proceeded along the secret passage, heading downward. After nearly half an hour, they finally reached a stone door.

“Mr. Rhys, the exit is outside. Please,” Edvan said, pressing a switch. With a rumbling sound, the heavy stone door slowly opened. Warm sunlight filled the cold, dim tunnel.

Accustomed to the darkness, Dustin squinted until he adapted to the light.  When he could finally see, he stepped out of the door.

Outside, overgrown weeds and a lack of footprints indicated the area’s desolation. No buildings were in sight, and the direction was unclear. But the only certainty was that they had reached the foot of the mountain.

“Hahaha… Logan Rhys, you finally came out. We’ve been waiting for you for a long time.”

Suddenly, a burst of laughter echoed, and a group of masked assassins emerged from the bushes on both sides, quickly surrounding Dustin. The speed at which they closed in suggested a well-prepared ambush.

“Hmm?” Dustin furrowed his brows slightly and instinctively looked back at Edvan. Wasn’t it supposed to be secretive and unknown to others? Why were they ambushed?

“Mr. Rhys, I can’t let you jeopardize the prince. If you don’t die, the prince will be in big trouble. So, I’m sorry,” Edvan said coldly.

As he spoke, he pressed the switch again. The heavy stone door immediately descended, completely blocking Dustin’s retreat.

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?
