An Understated Dominance Chapter 860 by Marina Vittori

It was 8:00 pm. Inside Rose Cafe, Dahlia was seated by the window. She had both hands wrapped around her cup of coffee.

Her mood was heavy as she watched the rain fall outside. She looked exhausted. Since last night, she had been in a trance and felt dispirited. All she could think of was Dustin and their memories.

She had tried so hard to mend their relationship. But whatever she did, it seemed to pull them further apart.

She slowly realized that Dustin seemed to care less about her now. He no longer put her first and considered her feelings either.

She was terrified at the thought that they had turned into enemies, especially after the decisive look he gave her last night.

Just then, Dahlia heard the sound bell hanging at the door. She turned her head instinctively and saw a familiar figure enter.

It was none other than Dustin.

“You’re here.” Dahlia’s eyes lit up, and she appeared more animated as she stood up.

“What did you call me here for?” Dustin took a seat stoically.

“We haven’t sat down and talked in a long time, have we?”

Dahlia had mixed feelings. “About last night, let’s clear up our misunderstandings.”

“Will you even believe me? Why should I waste my time if you won’t?” Dustin said impassively.

“So you won’t even talk to me anymore?” Dahlia frowned slightly.

“What do you want me to say? I made myself clear yesterday. I’m not going to repeat myself.” Dustin shook his head.

“I just hope you’ll tell me the truth and not hide anything from me,” Dahlia responded. sincerely.

“Alright, you want the truth? Then I’ll tell you everything from the start.

“First of all, Gavin is working together with Madam Alma. They were the ones responsible for your ambush. It was nothing more than a staged performance they arranged.

“Secondly, I investigated and found that Madam Alma is behind Regulus‘ comatic state. They

don’t need the Panax root to cure him. All they’re trying to do is to gain your trust and plot. something sinister.

“Finally, I was sent to Azkaban, all thanks to Gavin. An influential figure got me released, not him.

“From the start, he’s been a hypocrite sowing discord and causing trouble.

“He even had his men kill me, which resulted in the deaths of my men I consider brothers.

“This is everything that happened. Now, I’ve told you everything. The question is, do you believe me?”

Dustin poured out all their grievances and countered her with a question.

If Dahlia believed him, they could continue with the conversation. He found no reason to continue wasting his breath if she didn’t.

“Dustin, what physical proof do you have of Mr. Killian being a hypocrite?” Dahlia inquired cautiously.

“So, you still think I’m lying?”

Dustin scoffed. “Since you don’t believe me, what’s the purpose of this conversation?”

“It’s not that I don’t believe you. It’s just that those are serious accusations. You can’t just make empty claims,” Dahlia started reasoning with him.

Gavin was Dragonmarsh’s major general. He came from an affluent family and was morally upright. It was hard for her to accept that he was a bad person.

“Never mind, just forget I mentioned it.” Dustin shook his head in disappointment.

“If there’s nothing else, I’m leaving.” Then, he stood up and left.

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?
