An Understated Dominance Chapter 1950 by Marina Vittori

At night, Deadlands was very cold, with a bitingly cold wind that stung the face. In the morning, it would become extremely hot, like a fire pit. If a person cracked an egg on a rock, it’d be cooked in a minute.

The average person wouldn’t be able to endure the extreme weather in Deadlands. They’d only be barely surviving, even with enough resources. The real test was on one’s determination and the ability to endure stress.

Dustin, Grace, and the rest of the team moved steadily forward, following Ryan’s map. They walked from night till morning and vice versa.

Due to their group size, the team wasn’t going very fast. The good thing was that Grace had prepared everything well in advance, and the team consisted of only the elites in their own trade. They were able to resolve any trouble that they ran into quickly.

As night descended, Grace instructed the team to set up camp when she found a suitable spot.

They had been traveling for quite a long time, and everyone was physically and mentally exhausted. They needed a good rest tonight to re-energize.

When the tents were all set up, Grace ordered the chefs to prepare dinner.

The kitchen crew, headed by two great chefs and a dozen kitchen helpers, quickly got busy preparing dinner. The team of around a hundred people waited eagerly for dinner to be ready.

The two days in Deadlands had been tough. However, it was amazing to be able to enjoy a delicious meal and have some wine when they were tired.

In one of the big tents, Dustin, Grace, Garett, and a few others sat around the table after dinner to discuss their next steps. Due to the cold, they even had a bonfire in the tent.

“Ms. Linsor, it’s been smooth sailing for us till now.

“If we keep this pace, we should reach the border of the oasis around tomorrow afternoon.

“However, please be reminded that sandstorms are frequent at the border. Therefore, we still have to be very careful.” Garett pointed to the map on the table with his finger and gave everyone a simple explanation.

“Alright, thanks for the information, Captain Wilder. Please rest well.” Grace nodded in reply.

“Good night, Ms. Linsor.” Garett nodded slightly and glanced at Dustin, who remained in the tent. Although he was quite upset about it, he could only leave.

“Dustin, you sleep here tonight. I have already prepared the mattress on the floor for you,” Grace said suddenly as she drank some water.

“What?” Dustin was stunned. “I don’t think it’s right for a man and a woman to be alone in the same tent.”

“What’s wrong? I won’t eat you.” Grace rolled her eyes. “Besides, you’re my bodyguard. It’s your job to protect me at all times. I am just a weak woman. What if something terrible happens at night?”

“Weak?” Dustin’s mouth twitched, and he was speechless for a moment.

Grace may appear weak, but she was actually a grandmaster and well- versed in all kinds of mystical arts. Excluding te normal martial artists, not even Aidan Ridge, the Sandscale, could fight her.

“Hey, stop overthinking. Let’s get some rest. We have to wake up early tomorrow.”

Before Dustin could reply, Grace took off her jacket and revealed her graceful figure momentarily before she quickly snuck into the sleeping bag and closed her eyes.

Dustin was dumbfounded. He could only yield in for the night.

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?
