An Understated Dominance Chapter 1711 by Marina Vittori

“Your Majesty, forgive me for being direct, but I don’t agree with you,” Dustin said. He continued seriously, “While it might be normal for you to have multiple wives, in my view, a monogamous marriage is the only way to go.

“Not to mention, a loveless marriage is a dead marriage. I don’t wish to put myself or another person in that situation.”

Grace was surprised at Dustin’s words and seemed to look at him in a different light after that.

Most powerful and influential men in Oakvale had multiple women. The remaining minority either had wives from influential backgrounds, making it unwise to cheat publicly, or struggled with impotence.

It was rare to find men like Dustin who had self-control and refrained from engaging in improper relationships.

“Logan, do you not like Grace? Or do you think that she is not worthy of you? “Valon probed.

His daughter dominated the Beauty Ranking. She was at the top, whether in terms of looks or talents. Countless young talents across the land aspired to catch a glimpse of her captivating beauty. In theory, a normal man wouldn’t refuse such an opportunity.

“Ms. Linsor is a beautiful and talented lady. I’m the one who’s not worthy of her. Moreover, my heart already belongs to someone else, and it cannot accommodate another,” Dustin said solemnly.

“I didn’t expect you to be so loyal. Well, let’s forget about it then. A forced marriage is meaningless. We can discuss this another time.” Valon backed down.

Valon believed that matters like this took time. Logan was only refusing because he hadn’t fully noticed his daughter’s charm. Their relationship would develop naturally once they spent more time together.

That was why there was no rush for now.

“Thank you, Your Majesty.” Dustin bowed in gratitude.

“Logan, it’s getting late. You should go back and rest. Take your time to think about my request. I’ll await your answer.”

He then turned to Grace. “Grace, please see Logan out for me.”

“Yes, Father,” Grace nodded and stood up.

“I’ll be taking my leave first, Your Majesty.” After Dustin bowed deeply, he followed Grace out of Galene Palace.

Valon had just taken another sip from his teacup when he started coughing violently again. The clear tea soon turned a bloody red.

“Ah… If only I had a bit more time. Three years. I just need three years to unite the world.”

Meanwhile, outside Galene Palace, Dustin was following Grace in his attendant attire.

“Thanks… For earlier,” Grace said after a brief silence.

She still had many things she wanted to accomplish and had no intention of getting married yet. Dustin’s refusal had bought her more time.

“Why are you thanking me?” Dustin was puzzled.

“It’s nothing. In any case, you’re a good person. If there’s anything you need help with in the future, just let me know,” Grace said with a smile.

“Since you brought it up, I do have something that I need your help with,” Dustin said without hesitation.

“Tell me, then,” Grace replied.

“Since you’re so good at divination, can you predict who will eventually ascend the throne for me?” Dustin asked.

Valon had presented him with a tough question, and he could only pose the question to someone else.

“I’m not God. Did you think I could predict anything I want?”

Grace rolled her eyes and replied somewhat irritably, “Besides, being the nation’s ruler is in accordance with the will of the heavens.

“Predicting the fate of someone who carries that destiny would likely cost half of my life, and it’s not even guaranteed to be accurate.”

“Is it really that difficult?” Dustin asked.

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?
