An Understated Dominance Chapter 1752 by Marina Vittori

Dustin raised an eyebrow as he took in the information on the tombstone. He was surprised that the name etched on it belonged to Leo Ashen, the former Vice General of the renowned Black Dragon Army’s vanguard.

The vanguard army was composed of elite soldiers that were chosen with meticulous care. Attaining the rank of vice commander required an exceptional level of prowess.

In Dustin’s recollection, Leo was renowned for his inherent strength and ferocity on the battlefield. He had a distinguished career, and had made significant contributions to Rufus’ efforts to stabilize West Lucozia.

Leo’s sacrifice resulted in a posthumous promotion, securing the position of vanguard army General-in- Chief. The grandeur of his funeral underscored his importance.

Leo’s descendants had enjoyed privileges and benefits. Hence, it was perplexing to witness the family in such dire straits. This raised the question of what had transpired.

Dustin was intrigued. He approached slowly, eager to unravel more about the situation.

“Who’s there?”

Sensing movement, the young man at the grave turned with a wary expression.

Dustin was quick to diffuse the tension, He assured the man, “Don’t be nervous. We’re here to pay respects to our loved ones like you.”

“Pay respects?”

The young man relaxed slightly but maintained a cautious demeanor.

Dustin explained, “We heard some commotion and came to check.”

“Apologies for the emotional outburst earlier. I appreciate your understanding,” the young man said, extending an apology.

“No problem at all. Emotions can be overwhelming.”

Dustin nodded.

The discussion then turned toward the tombstone.

Dustin feigned surprise.

“Wow! Isn’t this the renowned General Leo Ashen’s grave? Are you, by any chance, his descendant?” 1

“I’m Lucas Ashen, and my father is Leo Ashen. Do you happen to know him?” the young man asked cautiously.

Expressing genuine admiration, Dustin acknowledged, “General Leo’s accomplishments are widely recognized. His reputation is known far and wide. Who in West Lucozia doesn’t know of him? Among the generals, he’s the one I admire the most.”

While the sentiment might sound somewhat complimentary, it held complete truth. The generals of West Lucozia sacrificed generously for the nation, and Dustin genuinely admired that.

“My father did have a glorious past, but it’s unfortunate that he left us too soon.

Lucas sighed deeply.

“Mr. Ashen, as a descendant of General Leo, you should have rightfully enjoyed the glory associated with him. Why has it turned out this way?” Dustin inquired.

“It’s those heartless bullies!”

Lucas began to curse, then seemed to hesitate as he recalled something. He chose not to elaborate.

“Mr. Ashen, I have immense respect for General Leo’s character. If you ever face any challenges, don’t hesitate to inform me. I have considerable connections in West Lucozia and should be able to offer assistance,” Dustin said.

“It’s useless. Those bullies have both power and influence. Their backing is formidable. You can’t beat them. Just forget about it,” Lucas said bitterly as he shook his 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?
