An Understated Dominance Chapter 1047 by Marina Vittori

Dustin just replied with a single word.  “Thanks.” The girl in the blue dress smiled and motioned for her friends to sit.

She thought, “This seems to be the only place with many empty seats. He looks friendly, so sitting with him shouldn’t be an issue.”

“Hey, I’m Livia, and these are my friends, Leah and Quinton. What’s yours?” “We just met, so there’s no need for names,” Dustin replied bluntly. He was on a mission, not here  to socialize.

His rudeness caught Livia off guard. But Leah couldn’t hold back and confronted him. “Hey, watch your tone. We’re just asking for your  name!

“What’s the big deal about that? You’re not even dressed like a rich man. What makes you think

you can act so high and mighty?”

Quinton chimed in, “Yeah, you’re not exactly dressed to impress. It’s an honor for you to meet us.”

“It’s ok, let’s all forget about it.” Livia tried to defuse the situation.

But Leah couldn’t let it go and snapped. “You can’t give in to a loser like him, Liv. It’s clear he

doesn’t enjoy being around people.”

She couldn’t accept that Dustin had ignored such beauties like themselves. What a fool!

Quinton added, “Liv, forget about him. We’re in a different league, and he’s clearly out of place here.

Then, he proudly flaunted his designer tie and expensive watch. “Check out this watch; it’s worth

eight hundred dollars. I doubt you could afford it even with ten years‘ salary.”

He needed to show Dustin how they were on two different levels. It was unusual for someone as

out of place as Dustin to be at this gathering.

However, Dustin paid them no mind, calmly sipping his drink while keeping a sharp eye on the


“See the difference between us now? It’s an honor to sit with us, so don’t take it for granted.”

Quinton interpreted Dustin’s silence as a display of weakness.

“Ew! What the hell is that smell?” Leah pretended to cover her nose in disgust.

Dustin continued to disregard them, further fueling her anger. She might have even spit at him if the circumstances were different.

At that moment, someone shouted, “Look, here he comes!”

The crowd turned and looked at Trent, the new patriarch of the Harmon family, walking in with his entourage. Applause filled the room as everyone cheered for him.

Meanwhile, Leah and Quinton wanted to get closer but couldn’t push through the crowd. In the

end, they opted to watch from a distance.

“Isn’t that Dylan? He is so handsome!” Leah exclaimed, her eyes filled with admiration.

Dylan came from a wealthy family and was a talented young man who captured the hearts of

many girls, including Leah.

“I heard he’s a high–ranking commander in the Dark Panther Cavalry, serving under the Scarlet

Warrior. His future looks promising.” Livia gushed with admiration. To her, Dylan seemed like

someone beyond reach.

“I’d be thrilled if I could achieve half of what he has,” Quinton confessed, his envy evident. Despite

his wealth, he couldn’t help but feel inferior to Dylan.

“It doesn’t matter how great Dylan is or how bright his future appears. He’s about to die soon,”

Dustin said, rising to his feet. His murderous glare fixed on Dylan.

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?
