An Understated Dominance Chapter 1024 by Marina Vittori

After some time, Dustin woke up groggily, only to find himself lying on the bed. The sunlight that shone through the windows was slightly glaring to his eyes.

“Dustin! You’re finally awake!” Ruth, who had been keeping vigil by his bedside, immediately breathed a sigh of relief.

“How long have I been unconscious?” Dustin asked. He just woke up and was still feeling slightly disoriented.

“You were out for three days. Luckily, Dr. Watkins said you were fine. Or, we would have prepared

for your funeral,” Ruth said.

“Three days? That long?” After a momentary daze, he finally remembered something.

“Oh, how about your sister? How is she? Is she awake yet?”

“My sister?” Ruth was dejected after she heard him.

Lowering her head, she was choked with sobs. “Natasha… she’s gone…

“What? She’s dead?” Those words hit Dustin like lightning, leaving him stunned.

His already pale face turned whiter. It was as if his soul had left his body.

“How can that be? I–Impossible!

“I found the Shadowbloom! Why did she still die? Why?” Dustin shook his head frantically, his expression filled with disbelief.

He couldn’t believe it. He couldn’t accept that outcome.

Didn’t they say she could be saved? Why did it fail? Why?

“This won’t do! I’m going to find her! I refuse to believe she just left like that!”

Dustin stood up abruptly and stumbled his way out.

“Who left?”

Right then, a woman entered through the doors.

She was beautiful, tall, and exuded irresistible charm. It was as though she had stepped out of a


Surprisingly, it was none other than Natasha.

“Natasha?” Looking at the beautiful woman before him, Dustin was dumbfounded.

“Y–You’re not dead?”

“Dead?” Natasha had a strange expression.

“I’m just fine. Why would I be dead?”

“But, earlier—” Dustin looked to his left, only to find Ruth suddenly burst into laughter. She was

just sobbing moments ago. 1

She couldn’t contain it any longer and let out a hearty laugh. “Hahaha… I got you, Dustin. My sister is extremely blessed. How could she have died? Did I shock you?”

“You little-” Dustin’s temper almost flared as he raised a hand.

Ruth was scared and hid behind Natasha. “I was just joking with you, Dustin. Why are you acting

like this?”

“You brat! Is this something you should be joking about? Do you know how much you scared me?” Dustin was fuming.

When he heard Natasha was gone, his heart almost stopped. It was as if the energy had been

sucked out of him.

“Ruth! How old are you? You should know better!” Natasha raised her hand and knocked Ruth on

the head.

She scolded her, “Go and make your brother–in–law some food. He just woke up and is still weak He needs the energy.”

“Fine.” Ruth stuck out her tongue. She escaped the room after Dustin glared at her.

“Dear, how is your injury? Do you need-”

Natasha turned around. She was about to ask him some questions when Dustin suddenly wrapped her in a tight hug. He held her for a long time without letting go.

A thousand words swirled in his mind, but he didn’t know how to express them.

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?
