An Understated Dominance Chapter 1091 by Marina Vittori

It wasn’t until he saw the faint smile on Dustin’s face that he knew what was going on.

“Oh, get lost, you little brat!” Gregory huffed. Then, he made himself comfortable on the easy chair and got ready to sleep again.

“Come on, stop sleeping. I’ve got serious business.” Dustin took out two wooden boxes and placed them on the table. One had the thousand-year green lotus, and the other had the Cherusia.

“I’ve made a decent haul in Millsburg this time. The last two remaining herbs are here. I can start producing the Longevitum now.” “Oh? So soon?” Gregory sat up lazily.

“I thought my days were numbered. Who’d have thought that you actually managed to collect all the herbs. How fortunate!” “Enough with your nonsense. Go bring out all the herbs we collected from before,” Dustin urged.

“Alright, alright, I’ll go get them.” Gregory stretched sluggishly before searching through several drawers and cupboards.

It took him a while to find all the herbs that he’d hidden away. “Maximus, guard the door. Nobody is allowed to enter,” Dustin instructed Maximus.

“Yes, sir!” Maximus brought a chair and sat in front of the door, both hands on his sword. He looked around warily. “Caitlyn, go get me these herbs.” Dustin wrote down a list of needed herbs and passed it to Caitlyn.

Peaceful Medical Center rarely had patients, so they didn’t keep many herbs. “Okay!” Caitlyn nodded and quickly left with the list. Soon, she came running back breathlessly, carrying the herbs with her.

“From now on, I’ll need to lock myself away to focus on producing the Longevitum. I’m not sure how long it’ll take, but no one is to disturb me before I come out.

With that instruction, Dustin turned and entered the medical room. He did not jump head-first into making the pill. Instead, he took out an ancient manuscript and began studying it.

The nine-fold Longevitum, better known as Longevitum, had miraculous reviving properties. According to the manuscript, it was also the only medicine to cure the Celestial Decay.

But for centuries, no one had produced it successfully. That was because the herbs needed were too rare to find, and the process of producing them was complex. Even with Dustin’s exceptional alchemy skills, he still wasn’t confident he could produce it.

He had no choice but to study the recipe repeatedly to avoid any mistakes. After ensuring nothing was missing, Dustin sat on the ground and meditated for half an hour. He finally started making the pill when he felt rejuvenated and was at his peak state.

Though this was Dustin’s first time making the Longevitum, his actions were practiced. He did not need to pause to check the recipe. That was because he had already repeatedly played out all the steps in his head.

As he lit the fire, the fragrance of herbs fluttered out from the alchemy furnace. Dustin put the herbs into it one by one. At the same time, he had to use his true energy to control the fire. Alchemy was delicate work. Every detail was important to ensure the end product.

From the age of the herbs and the technique used to the quality of the furnace, the temperature within the furnace and even the sequence in which the herbs were added would affect the outcome. Luck also came into play when it came to alchemy.

Dustin knew that he could not slip up. One wrong move and all his previous efforts would have gone to waste. A miraculous medicine like the Longevitum had to be perfect.

As time passed, all the herbs within the furnace began to combine. He had now reached the most crucial and most difficult step, which was to solidify the pill.

Dustin placed both his hands by the furnace, carefully controlling the fire. Without noticing, he began to sweat due to the exertion of using his true energy. It began to boil in the furnace. The lid of the furnace buzzed as its contents bubbled.

A special aroma rose from within.

“This is it!”

Dustin took a deep breath before pushing his palms forward. True energy surged from within him, flowing out toward the furnace.

Instantly, the flames beneath the furnace blazed. It was obvious that it was already at the final stage. As Dustin waited with bated breath, the furnace exploded with a loud bang.

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?
