An Understated Dominance Chapter 1923 by Marina Vittori

“Of course! That’s a blue jadeite, and it’s also an antique that’s worth a fortune!” Garrett snapped.

“Worth a fortune? What a treasure!” The middle-aged man’s face lit up with joy as he carefully put away the pendant.

“We left in a hurry, so I didn’t manage to bring anything else with me. The pendant is valuable, so I hope you’ll like it,” Grace said with a slight smile.

“Miss, considering your sincerity, I’ll pass on the message. But whether Mr. Zaeske decides to see you is beyond my control,” the middle-aged man said cautiously.

“Thank you.” Grace nodded slightly.

“Alright, please wait a moment,” the middle-aged man said and entered the courtyard.

After three minutes, he reappeared with a smile on his face. “Miss, Mr. Zaeske has agreed to see you. However, for safety reasons, you can only bring one person with you.”

“Garrett, please keep watch here. I’ll be going in with Dustin,” Grace instructed. She then headed inside with Dustin.

Ryan lay unconscious inside a bedroom, his face pale. The village chief, Kayson Zaeske, was by his bedside, discussing his condition with a village doctor.

“Bob, is there really no hope of saving this young man?” Kayson’s expression was somber.

As the only survivor to emerge from the oasis alive, Ryan was an extremely valuable person. He could bring prosperity to the village if he played his cards well.

“Mr. Zaeske, this young man is seriously injured and has also been extensively poisoned. I lack the skills to treat him.” The village doctor shook his head. He was adept at managing minor ailments but found himself utterly helpless when faced with perplexing conditions.

“It seems like we’ll have to send him to the hospital.” Kayson frowned.

“Mr. Zaeske, our village is at least a day’s journey from the hospital in the city. With his current condition, he might not be able to make it,” Bob said with a sigh.

“We’ll have to try. We don’t have any other options.” Kayson was helpless. The money bag that was at hand was now on the verge of death. It was a pity.

“Mr. Zaeske, my friend here is highly skilled in medicine. Why don’t you let him try?” Grace suddenly said, arriving at the door.

“I heard from Paco that you’re friends with this young man?” Kayson probed.

“We’re not exactly friends. I just have some questions to ask him,” Grace replied truthfully.

“Well, you seem like an honest person. “Kayson nodded in satisfaction. “If you had lied, I’d have kicked you all out. 11

“Mr. Zaeske, you’re a wise man. We wouldn’t dare lie to you.” Grace took the opportunity to flatter Kayson.

“Hahaha… You’re quite good with words.” Kayson grinned widely.

“Mr. Zaeske, Ryan’s in critical condition. It’s probably too late to send him to the hospital now. My friend has been studying medicine since young and specializes in various complicated illnesses. Perhaps he can help heal Ryan.” Grace shifted the focus to Dustin.

“He’s quite young.” Kayson scrutinized Dustin skeptically.

Their conventional thinking had led them to believe that older doctors possessed higher medical skills. Convincing them of Dustin’s capabilities when he was only in his 20s would prove to be a challenge.

“I may be young, but it doesn’t diminish my skills. I’m confident of waking Ryan up within 10 minutes,” Dustin said calmly, looking extremely confident.

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?
