An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1268

A clamor broke out in the meeting room. All the guildmasters were excited to hear that. It would be a lie to say that they weren’t envious of Cornelius for receiving the Gerandium. After all, it wasn’t every day that they came by such a rare and precious pill.

But Dustin’s promise turned their envy into surprise. So it turns out that all of them had a part in it! No one would be left behind. Dustin’s fairness gained him the respect and admiration of everyone present.

“Thank you, Sir Rhys!”

“From now on, we will do our best to serve you!”

All the guildmasters bowed to Dustin respectfully.

“We’re all brothers. There’s no need to be so polite.” Dustin then gestured for everyone to straighten up. “There isn’t much I can offer.

“But if there’s one thing I can promise you, it’s that in the future, we will always have each others’ back. We’ll share each others’ joys, and help each other through tough times!”

Dustin’s simple declaration lifted everyone’s spirits. They felt that it was their honor to have such a talented, capable, and understanding leader. They were sure that under Dustin’s leadership, the Kirin Gang would have a bright future ahead!

“Sir Rhys, Ms. Harmon has come round. Just then, a female disciple of the Kirin Gang entered the meeting room.

“She’s awake?”

Dustin was shocked to hear that. He immediately got up and headed out.

“Sir Rhys, Ms. Harmon is no longer in her room. She went to the House of Heroes just a while ago,” the female disciple added.

“So, she knows?” Dustin’s expression became grave.

“I guess so.” She nodded. “Alright, you may all be dismissed. There’s no need to keep an eye on her anymore.”

Dustin took a deep breath before he headed to the House of Heroes. Hector’s body was placed there. Dustin wasn’t sure if Natasha could take it when she saw Hector’s body.

When Dustin walked into the House of Heroes, he found Natasha kneeling beside the coffin silently. She was so still that she looked like she was frozen. She wasn’t crying or wailing. The House of Heroes was deathly silent.

“Natasha?” Dustin’s expression became grave as he rushed up to Natasha. Her face was tear-streaked, her expression blank, and her eyes dull. She looked like she had lost all the life within her.

“What’s wrong, Natasha?”

Dustin was flustered when he saw how odd she was behaving. He would have understood if Natasha had been weeping. But seeing how bewildered and disoriented she was told him that something was wrong.

“Don’t scare me, Natasha! Look at me!”

Dustin crouched down in front of Natasha and held her face in his hands as he called her name repeatedly.

“D-Dustin?” After quite some time, Natasha seemed to snap back to the present. Her eyes gradually focused on Dustin. When she saw who it was, something seemed to snap within her. She suddenly broke down in tears.

She buried herself into Dustin’s embrace and began crying loudly. Tears rained down uncontrollably. All her pent-up emotions were finally released.

“Go on, let it all out … You’ll feel better after crying.”

Dustin held her tightly as he patted her lightly on the back. He knew that words of consolation were just empty words to her at this point.

Nobody could share her pain of losing her father. The only thing he could do for her now was to be by her side. Natasha had to get through the pain in her heart by herself.

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?
