An Understated Dominance Chapter 1097 by Marina Vittori

Just as they were about to say more, Lily cut them off. “Enough! This is not the time for pointless bickering! Caden’s life is at stake!”

“Exactly! Dustin! Quick, save my father! “Sheila quickly reacted. Though Rudolph had a great reputation, she trusted Dustin more. “Wait a second!” Dustin was about to go up to Caden when Jayden stopped him.

“This is a life at stake! We cannot afford you messing things up! Mr. Saunders must be the one to treat him!”

“I said it, he can’t help him. He’ll only put him in danger,” Dustin answered. “If even Mr. Saunders can’t help him, what makes you think you can?”

Jayden suddenly turned to look at Lily. Aunt Lily, you should be the one deciding. Do you trust Mr. Saunders, or do you trust this brat?”

“Well…” Lily was in a dilemma when presented with such a choice. She had seen for herself how good Dustin’s skills were. He had been the one who cured Sheila of her strange condition.

But Rudolph had an exceptional reputation. He had been practicing medicine for decades. Rudolph should be much better than Dustin, regardless of experience or skills. Considering Caden’s safety, she trusted Rudolph more.

“Mom, Dustin is good at what he does. I’m sure he’ll be able to help Dad!” Sheila said.

“Sheila, your father’s life is on the line. How can you entrust his life in the hands of someone who doesn’t have a good reputation?

“Who will take responsibility for it if anything were to happen?” Jayden frowned. “Yes, Sheila. This brat doesn’t look trustworthy. I’m sure Mr. Saunders is better than he is,” Vivian persuaded.

“Mr. Saunders’ medical skills are out of this world. He’ll be able to cure him. “But Uncle Caden will be in danger if you let this guy treat him!” Evan warned.

They all persuaded and sounded so confident in Rudolph that Sheila wavered. She was the type that was easily influenced by others.

Now that everyone sounded so sure, she didn’t know what to think anymore. “Miss, I’m sure you won’t want anything to befall your husband, would you?” Rudolph asked.

“I…” Lily seemed to want to say something, but she stopped herself. In the end, she looked at Dustin apologetically. “Dustin, thank you for making the journey here. But I’d prefer Mr. Saunders to treat Caden.”

“Miss, I’m not trying to show off, but Rudolph Saunders will not be able to treat Mr. Murray.

“If anything, he will only endanger his life. Please reconsider your decision!” Dustin’s expression was grave.

It was true that he held a grudge against Jayden. But for Sheila and General Murray’s sake, he was willing to help Caden. But he needed the Murrays to trust him.

“Dustin, Mr. Saunders has a reputation for his medical skills, and he’s confident he’ll be able to treat Caden. I trust him.” Lily gave her final answer.

“Are you sure that’s what you’ve decided upon?” Dustin frowned.

“Once Saunders starts his treatment, Mr. Murray’s condition will worsen. By then, I won’t have the confidence to save him anymore.”

“I’m sure.” Lily nodded resolutely. “Dustin, please show yourself so as not to bother Mr. Saunders.” Lily made it clear that she was throwing Dustin out.

“Do you hear that? Get out! Don’t be a nuisance here!”

“How dare a nobody like him challenge Mr. Saunders? He thought too highly of himself!” They all mocked Dustin, looking down on him.

“I hope you don’t regret your decision. “Dustin drew a deep breath and left without saying anything else.  He had said all he could. Whether or not Caden survived was no longer any of his business.

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?
