An Understated Dominance Chapter 1768 by Marina Vittori

Dustin closed the door quietly, allowing Lucas and Lisa the time and space they needed for their heartfelt reunion. For most people, the aftermath of such an experience would take a considerable amount of time to erase the haunting memories.

“Logan, what are your thoughts on what happened today?” Grace asked, breaking the silence as she studied the man beside her.

“I’d eradicate every last scum like them if I could.”

His tone held an icy determination.

She said solemnly, “West Lucozia is larger than Oakvale. What occurred today is likely not an isolated incident. In places beyond our view, there may be more people suffering oppression and hardship.”

She went on, “With your current abilities, you can save one or two, maybe even ten or a hundred. But you can’t save thousands or tens of thousands.”

“What do you mean?”

Dustin raised an eyebrow.

“I know you don’t like authority and that you lean more toward the martial world, but some things require a high position. Vermin like those cannot be eradicated with personal strength alone,” Grace reminded.

“I understand your point, but I’m not thinking about that right now.”

He shook his head.

“You may not be thinking about it, but you should be prepared. West Lucozia is in chaos, and you need to shoulder this responsibility,” she said.

The Prince of West Lucozia was critically ill, and the various factions within were already in turmoil. With the impending demise of the prince, chaos would not only engulf West Lucozia but also the whole of Dragonmarsh. So, she hoped that Logan would ascend to the throne soon and suppress the petty factions.

“Talking about this now is useless. Our immediate concern is dealing with the remnants of the Dragon Guard,” Dustin said.

“That’s true.”

Grace nodded and said nothing afterward. After a while, the door to the private room opened again. Lucas and Lisa walked out shoulder to shoulder. They stood directly before Dustin.

“Thank you both for saving us. From now on, my sister and I are willing to be your humble servants to repay this great favor,” Lucas said.

He brought Lisa to express their gratitude.

“Mr. Ashen, please stop.”

Dustin quickly said, “I greatly admire General Leo’s character. When faced with such a situation, I couldn’t just stand by. Moreover, those wastrels deserved severe punishment. What I did was merely to uphold justice.” 2

“Whatever the case, you are our lifesavers. If you have any orders in the future, my sister and I will not hesitate to follow, even if it means going through hell,” Lucas said solemnly.

“Alright, enough of these ominous words.”

Dustin patted his shoulder and advised, “Mr. Ashen, go back and pack up. Given what happened, for your safety, it’s best to leave Celestria immediately. Go somewhere else to lay low. After some time, I’ll arrange for your return.”

“Thank you, sir.”

Lucas nodded to Dustin and Grace again. He then quickly left with Lisa.

Although he didn’t know how Dustin had managed it, he was sure that he had offended Russo. With the Vern family’s influence, retaliation would be severe. He was now a cripple and couldn’t be of much help. So he could only take his sister somewhere safe for the time being.

“Russo and Aster are still in the trunk. How do you plan to deal with them?” Grace suddenly asked after watching the Ashen siblings leave.

“Just killing them would be too easy for them. For committing such heinous acts, I want them to regret living in this world,” Dustin spoke coldly.

A hint of menace flashed in his eyes.

Be it the Vern family or the Linden family, regardless of their power, whoever was involved in this matter would pay with their blood.

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?
